Keanu was taken aback, and his gaze betrayed a hint of surprise. He didn’t expect Cody to get the right answer. The third riddle was much trickier than the previous two. When he drew this question, he thought no one could answer it. He almost even considered discarding it.

Yet, Cody, who seemed inexperienced, was the first to answer. It was surprising. Perhaps someone knowledgeable had pointed him to the right answer.

“Mr. Jankow, why are you just standing there? Just announce the results. Did I get it right?” Cody urged. He was confident at first. But after seeing Keanu’s unusual expression, he felt nervous again.

“Mr. Ostrower, I’d suggest you stop struggling. You clearly got the wrong answer again just by looking at Mr. Jankow’s expression,” Lana teased.

“Step down if you don’t know the answer. Don’t embarrass yourself here! “the attendees echoed. “I can’t possibly be wrong again, can I? Keanu frowned slightly. He was close to losing his composure.

“Hmph, you acted so arrogantly, yet you were still wrong! We shouldn’t have trusted you!” Harper glared at Dustin.

Unlike her, how could someone so incompetent possibly answer such a difficult riddle? “Dear guests, please don’t misunderstand.” Keanu returned to his senses.

He quickly cleared up the situation. ” Mr. Ostrower isn’t wrong. On the contrary, he answered correctly. The answer to the third riddle is indeed a library.”

“What? He was right?” Lana’s smile froze. The attendees who were clamoring earlier exchanged confused looks. Harper also had to swallow her words.

“Mr. Jankow, could there be a mistake? How could those idiots get the right answer?” Lana was in disbelief. Even the intellect she invited was unable to answer. How could Harper and Cody get it right?

“There is no mistake. Mr. Ostrower answered correctly.” Keanu nodded slightly. “That can’t be.” Lana frowned.

“Harper has an overinflated ego and has no real skills. How could she possibly have answered such a difficult riddle? Could she have gotten help?”

As she spoke, she gazed at everyone present before eventually settling on Dustin. Compared to everyone else, who was surprised and astonished, Dustin remained pretty calm. It was as if he had expected this outcome all along.

“I got it right. I finally got it right!” Cody was excited. His previous mistakes had cost him his pride, making him the subject of mockery. He finally regained some of it on the third question.

“Dustin, I didn’t expect you to be good at solving riddles too. Great job!” Brooke gave him a thumbs up. This man seemed to excel in everything.

“I just read a lot. It’s nothing special,” Dustin replied calmly.

“There’s no need to be so humble, Dustin. If it weren’t for you, we would have lost.” Cody returned to his seat with a smile.

“Hmph! What’s so great about it? He was just lucky!” Harper pouted, clearly unimpressed.

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?
