An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1322

In Harper’s eyes, Dustin had only managed to answer correctly through pure luck. If it wasn’t that, he must have come across similar riddles in the past to be able to answer that fast.

“Dustin, we’re counting on you for the remaining riddles. I’ll be deeply grateful to you if you succeed,” Cody pleaded.

“I’ll do my best for Dr. Brooke’s sake.” Dustin yawned. If it weren’t for saving Harmony Healers, he wouldn’t have bothered getting involved.

“Harper, I didn’t expect someone smart to be hiding amongst you,” Lana spoke again. “But don’t get ahead of yourself. We’re still in the lead. The next seven questions will decide the winner.”

“Hmph! Bring it on!” Harper raised her head without a trace of fear.

“Mr. Jankow, please present the next riddle!” Harper demanded. Keanu nodded and took out the card containing the fourth riddle.

“This is the fourth riddle. Always approaching, I dance in the skies, never to land, though I’m eager to rise.”

As soon as he finished speaking, Dustin answered, “Tomorrow.”

“Congratulations, dear guest. You answered correctly,” Keanu announced. “Huh?” The attendees were stunned. Someone had answered before they could even think about it. Was this a joke? How could he be that fast?

“Hold on! Why is it tomorrow? Can someone explain?” someone asked. “Tomorrow is always approaching as it is a new day that’s coming. But it never actually lands or arrives because it becomes today when it does.” Dustin’s explanation was clear and to the point.

“Oh, I see now. It sounds simple enough. No wonder he answered so quickly.” The attendees nodded in understanding.

“Mr. Jankow, please continue!” Lana was unwilling to accept defeat.

“This is the fifth riddle. In slumber’s grasp, a bull lies still; amidst the meadow, tranquil, chill. With closed eyes, it dreams away; in peaceful rest, til break of day,” Keanu announced.

“A bulldozer,” Dustin answered easily.

“Congratulations, you have answered correctly.” Keanu nodded. The attendees were rendered speechless. That was too fast. They hadn’t even had the chance to react. “Here is the sixth riddle. A seed with three letters in my name. Take away two, and I still sound the same.”

“A pea.”

“Here is the seventh riddle. Each day I break, a relentless plight, but I can’t be fixed, forever in the cycle of tide.”


“Here is the eight riddle. A box without hinges, key, or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.”

“An egg.”

“Here is the ninth riddle. Voiceless it cries, Wingless flutters, Toothless bites, Mouthless mutters.”

“The wind.”

The two of them exchanged riddles and answers with greater speed each round. No matter the riddles Keanu presented, Dustin answered them all correctly without hesitation.

The other attendees had no opportunity to even speak. Even the intellect Lana invited from Balerno was left speechless. He looked astonished.

Was this really a riddle-solving game? It seemed like he was just reading off the answers. It was a ridiculous situation!

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?
