An Understated Dominance Chapter 1383 by Marina Vittori

The next morning, Dustin sat cross- legged in a guest room at the Welch residence, deep in meditation. A brisk knock on the door abruptly shattered his peaceful moment.

“Who’s there?” Dustin asked as he slowly opened his eyes. “Dr. Rhys, it’s me, Feiver. I’ve brought your breakfast,” a familiar voice from the other side replied.

“Alright,” Dustin replied, getting up to answer the door. Fifteen-year-old Feiver, a humble orphan and a housekeeper in the Welch family, stood outside with a finely crafted food container.

He had been taking care of Dustin since his arrival the day before. He was always ready with a cup of tea and a friendly word.

“Thank you for your hard work,” Dustin said, stepping aside to welcome Feiver inside.

“No trouble at all,” Feiver responded with a respectful nod. He placed the food container on the table and unveiled the morning meal.

“Dr. Rhys, today’s breakfast is quite a feast,” he explained as he revealed each dish.

“The first dish is a Spicy Shrimp Cocktail.

“The second is a Savory Beef Stew.

“The third is a Sautéed Mushrooms.

“The fourth is Seafood Scampi.

“The fifth is a Crispy Chicken Feast.

“The sixth is a Sizzling Meatball Platter.

“The seventh is Chateaubriand Steak.

“And lastly, the eighth dish is a Creamy Fish Roe Chowder.

“All the dishes are set. Please take your time and enjoy the meal,” Feiver announced. Dustin chuckled and said, “Why such a grand breakfast? A simple full English breakfast would do.”

“Dr. Rhys, you are a respected guest of the Welch family. Mr. Welch himself insisted on providing you with the finest hospitality,” Feiver explained.

“Oh, speaking of which, how is Mr. Welch Senior? Did he regain consciousness this morning?” Dustin asked out of the blue.

“Earlier today, Mr. Welch Senior briefly regained consciousness. Thanks to your miraculous treatment, his condition has improved significantly. The Welch family is deeply grateful,” Feiver reported.

“Excellent news,” Dustin replied. As he turned his attention to the table full of dishes, Dustin seemed overwhelmed. “Feiver, have you had breakfast yet?”

Feiver shook his head and said, “Not yet.” Dustin invited Feiver warmly. “Well then, let’s eat together. I doubt I can finish all these dishes by myself.”

Feiver hesitated, waving his hand dismissively. “I couldn’t possibly. These dishes were prepared specifically for you, Dr. Rhys.

“As a mere housekeeper, I don’t have the privilege to partake in such a meal.” Dustin smiled and reassured him, “No need to be so formal with me. Please, have a seat and join me.”

“But, Dr. Rhys, this goes against the rules. If anyone finds out, I might get in trouble,” Feiver protested, keeping his head down. Dustin brushed it off with a casual remark, “Who’s gonna know unless someone spills the beans?”

“Still, I’m just a lowly housekeeper. How could I possibly have a meal with you?” Feiver remained timid.

Dustin’s tone grew displeased as he retorted, “What? It’s just a meal, and you’re not showing appreciation?”

Feiver stammered, “N-no! It’s not that With a hint of sternness in his expression and an assertive tone, Dustin insisted, “Don’t overthink it; sit down!”

Feiver hesitated, fearing the repercussions, but he dared not disobey. With great reluctance, he sat down.

“That’s the spirit,” Dustin said, his tone warm and encouraging.

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?
