“Five million dollars? The Swanson family is sure generous,” the crowd whispered. Zion’s offer got everyone excited. Whether it was Ziggy’s henchmen or the Harmony Healers’ apprentices, five million dollars was a big deal for them.

“Mr. Swanson, this is a family secret formula. It’s not for sale, so I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed,” Dustin replied calmly.

He saw through Zion’s intentions. Such an ancient formula was worth more than five million dollars. Still smiling, Zion persisted, “It looks like Mr. Rhys isn’t satisfied.

“Well, it seems like the stars had brought us together today. I’ll double the offer to ten million dollars.”

“Wow! It just jumped to ten million dollars! Mr. Swanson is being generous!

“The crowd whispered excitedly. This amount was more than they could ever dream of earning. Even Ziggy was jealous at that moment. He had taken the job and risked his life for just one million dollars. While Dustin’s formula was being offered for a handsome ten million dollars, making Ziggy envious.

“Mr. Rhys, ten million dollars is a lot of money, enough for a comfortable life. In Oakvale, only the Swanson family can offer such a high price,” Zion said.

For regular folks, ten million dollars was more than they could imagine making in a lifetime. The average annual income in Oakvale was around a hundred thousand dollars, which meant a million dollars in a decade.

In contrast, ten million dollars would take a regular person a century of hard work to earn. The temptation was strong.

“Mr. Swanson, I’ve made it clear. This formula is a family recipe, and it’s not for sale,” Dustin emphasized. Zion frowned but quickly regained his smile. “Mr. Rhys, we want this formula.

“How about this? We’ll raise the offer to 20 million dollars. “Once you agree, we’ll immediately send 20 million dollars to your account. Opportunities like this don’t come around twice. This is our final offer.

“With 20 million dollars, you can make a decision that breaks tradition. What do you say?” The Dew Balm formula was worth a billion dollars. If Zion could get it for twenty million, it would be a big success for him.

“Mr. Swanson, it seems you don’t understand me. I’ll repeat myself.” Dustin’s tone became assertive.

“The Dew Balm formula is a closely guarded secret and is not for sale. I suggest you leave.”

Zion’s smile fell upon hearing these words, replaced by a frown. “Mr. Rhys, there’s nothing the Swanson family can’t get. By rejecting our offer, do you understand the consequences?

“20 million dollars can get you more than just a formula, and it’s more than enough to hire someone for your life.”

Zion’s eyes sharpened, and his tone carried a threat. He had been polite and even offered so much money to tempt Dustin.

He hadn’t expected Dustin to reject the offer. Zion decided that if being polite didn’t work, it was time to use force.

Summary An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori

Dahlia Nicholson and Dustin Rhys had been married for three years. After Dahlia’s meteoric rise to success, she abandons the useless dead weight that’s Dustin, proposing divorce. Unbeknownst to her, everything she had ever achieved was only because of him.

Chapter 1 “Dustin, here is the divorce agreement prepared by Ms. Nicholson. All you need to do is sign them.” In the president’s office of the Quine Group, the secretary, Lyra Blaine, placed a piece of A4 paper on the table. A man sat opposite her, dressed in plain clothing. “Divorce? What do you mean?” Dustin Rhys was taken aback. “Do you not understand what I’m saying? Your marriage with Ms. Nicholson is over. You’re not even on the same level anymore. Your existence is nothing but a smear on the president’s reputation!” Lyra pulled no punches as she spoke. “A smear on her reputation?” Dustin frowned. “Is that how she thinks of me?” Back when they first got married, the Nicholson family was in ruinous debt. He was the one who helped them when they were at their lowest point. Now that they were rich, Dahlia Nicholson was ready to just kick him out. “Something like that.” Lyra jerked her chin toward the magazine on the table. A photo of a beautiful woman was printed on the front page. “Look at the headline on this magazine, Dustin. Ms. Nicholson’s net worth has hit one billion in the course of just three years, a feat no short of a miracle. She’s now the most desired woman in Swinton! With all this, she’s destined for greatness. But you, you’re just a regular joe. You don’t deserve her at all. I hope that you’ll see some sense and do the right thing.” When Dustin remained silent, Lyra frowned. “I know you’re not happy with this, but this is reality,” she continued. “You might have helped Ms. Nicholson when she was in trouble, but she has repaid you for everything you’ve done for her over the last three years. In fact, you’re the one who owes her now!” “Is our marriage just a business deal to her, then?” Dustin took a deep breath to suppress the emotions within. “If she wants to divorce me, let her speak to me herself.” “Ms. Nicholson is very busy. She doesn’t need to trouble herself with such trifling matters.” “Trifling matters?” Dustin was stunned. Then he laughed bitterly. “Is that so? Is divorce a trifling matter to her? She can’t even find the time to speak to me. Truly, she’s that unattainable now!” “Dustin, don’t delay this any longer.” Lyra pushed the divorce agreement toward him again. “Just sign here and you’ll get a car and a house as compensation. On top of that, you’ll also get eight million dollars. This is more than what you’ll be able to earn in your lifetime!” “Eight million dollars is a lot, but…I don’t need it. I will sign the divorce papers if she comes personally. Otherwise, I won’t sign anything,” Duston said coldly. “Don’t go too far, Dustin!” Lyra slammed her hand on the table. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you. With all her power and resources, Ms. Nicholson can divorce you easily. It’s only because she appreciates her past relationship with you that she’s allowing you to keep your dignity intact. Don’t provoke her!” “My dignity?” Dustin was a little amused by that. She didn’t even want to speak to him directly to divorce him. What kind of dignity was that? Moreover, if she really did appreciate their relationship, then why was she threatening him now?
