Even though Harper was talented, it didn’t mean she could outshine everyone. After all, Oakvale was a place where elites gathered. It was a city with an abundance of talent.

“Grandpa, I was renowned as a prodigy back in school. That title belongs to me, and no one can dispute it. I’m better off dead if I can’t even win today’s literary event,” Harper said confidently.

“Why would you even say that?” Brooke frowned slightly.

“Master Busch, Harper is exceptionally talented and highly skilled in this regard. I believe she will do well,” Cody said with a smile.

“Did you hear that? Even Cody thinks so. I’m going to be the standout performer today!” Harper added, her confidence reaching new heights. Brooke shook his head in resignation. Harper’s arrogance would get her into trouble sooner or later.

“It’s almost time. Let’s head upstairs,” Cody said, leading the group to the second floor. Compared to the extravagance on the first floor, the second floor exuded an air of elegance and refinement. Every decorative element was meticulously arranged, leaving no room for criticism.

Several VIPs were already gathered on the second floor, each accompanied by one or two pretentious literary enthusiasts.

Regal Court’s quarterly literary event consistently drew its regular clientele. It served as an effective marketing strategy.

Cody led the group to their reserved table. Given the size of Regal Court, it didn’t feel crowded despite the number of attendees.

“Well, isn’t this the great Harper Busch?” Suddenly, they heard someone’s voice, almost teasing. The owner of the voice was an alluring woman dressed sexily, swaying her hips as she approached them. Beside her was a smart-looking man dressed in a white-sleeved shirt. He carried a gentle and intellectual air to him.

“Lana Camron? What are you doing here?” Harper frowned when she saw her, the smile on her face vanishing.

“The Camrons are pretty influential in South City. What’s so surprising about me dining here?”

Lana scrutinized Harper from head to toe before mocking her, “But how did a little name like yours manage to get into Regal Court?

“That’s none of your concern! You’re just slightly richer. What’s the big deal?

Harper puffed up her chest. The woman before her was not only her ex-classmate but also her love rival. Throughout their four years in university, Lana had constantly overshadowed her in terms of wealth, influence and physique.

She had even openly stolen her boyfriend, which wasn’t just a one- time occurrence. That was why Harper resented Lana intensely.

“Sorry, but it’s a pretty big deal to be rich.”

Lana continued with a mischievous grin, “For example, I can dine here every day. But you? You can only be here through someone else. That’s the difference between us.

“Oh, right, take more photos if you have the time and share them on social media. Treasure this rare opportunity. After all, it’s a miracle for someone like you to even set foot in here.”

“You-” Harper’s face flushed red in anger.

Why did those words sound so familiar?

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?
