An Understated Dominance Chapter 1399 by Marina Vittori

When Dustin noticed Lana’s concerned look, he was momentarily stunned, and his thoughts drifted. It was as though he saw Natasha in her.

He wondered about her well-being and whether she might resent him for taking so long before getting in touch. Shaking himself back to reality, Dustin withdrew his hand.

Stopping Lana from tending to his wound, he explained, “It’s alright, Ms. Camron. It’s just a minor cut. It’ll heal soon after I apply some Dew Balm.”

With that, Dustin took out the Dew Balm he had prepared earlier and applied it to his wound. Unlike the previous versions, which were black in color, the Dew Balm he used this time was a clear emerald green. This was the improved, authentic version. It had no side effects and had a remarkable healing effect.

“Hey, handsome. Even if you wanted to test the medicine, you didn’t have to harm yourself. Look at how painful it looks.” Lana said with a hint of resentment.

“This was the fastest and most convincing way,” Dustin replied with a smile.

“You could have just told me directly. I would have believed you. Why did you have to hurt yourself? If it leaves a scar, your arm won’t look good,” Lana shook her head in bewilderment.

“This is also a point I’m trying to prove. Dew Balm not only heals but also removes scars. Pouring them both tea, Dustin continued with a faint smile. “If everything goes as planned, the wound will completely heal by the time we finish this pot of tea.

“Oh, is that so?” Lana raised an eyebrow, her curiosity piqued by his confidence. As they chatted and sipped their tea, Dustin smiled and said, “Ms. Camron, it’s about time. Please, take a look.”

He picked up a tissue from the table and gently wiped the green ointment off his arm. As the green ointment was wiped away, the once gaping wound miraculously vanished. It left not a single scar, only a faint red mark. It was the sign of newly healed skin!


Lana was shocked and asked, “Where’s the wound? Why is it gone?”

“It’s not gone, it just healed.” Dustin corrected her. Lana froze in shock. “How is that possible? A gaping wound healed completely in such a short amount of time!”

“What do you think? Are you satisfied with its effectiveness?” Dustin smiled. “It’s amazing! It’s truly amazing!” Lana grabbed Dustin’s arm and examined it with wide eyes.

She exclaimed, “Handsome, this is the business proposal you were referring to?”

“That’s right. “Dustin nodded.

“Are you interested, Ms. Camron?”

“Of course, I’m interested! I’ve never seen such a miraculous ointment ever. If this can be mass-produced, it will undoubtedly become a bestseller!” Lana’s eyes sparkled with excitement.

Coming from a prestigious family and having been exposed to business from a young age, she recognized the tremendous value of this medicine.

With just a little marketing push, it could easily outperform all other ointments on the market. She had chanced upon a goldmine this time!

“Ms. Camron, don’t get too excited just yet. While Dew Balm is excellent, it also comes with significant risks,” Dustin cautioned.

“Oh? What kind of risks?” Lana asked with a smile.

“To be honest, before I contacted you, I had already sold the Dew Balm formula to the Welchs. However, they went back on our agreement, so I plan to reclaim my assets and teach them a lesson.”

Dustin did not hide any details and briefly explained the situation. Since he had decided to collaborate with Lana, the decision ultimately rested with her.

“So, you mean we have to go against the Welchs? Lana narrowed her eyes, seemingly considering her options.

“It isn’t just the Welchs. They’ve also collaborated with the Swansons,” Dustin clarified.

“What?” Lana was taken aback and chuckled bitterly.

“Handsome, you’re really putting me in a tough spot. You’ve managed to provoke two of South City’s top families.

“Won’t I be walking into a death trap if I were to agree to your proposal?”

With the Camron family’s influence, going against the Welches was already a daunting task, never mind challenging the Swansons, How could a lone wolf possibly win against two fierce tigers?

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?
