An Understated Dominance Chapter 1442 by Marina Vittori

Brooke, who had been standing behind Dustin, broke the silence. Brooke had been watching the situation unfold, but there was little he could do. Even with his impressive medical skills, he couldn’t help without the right ingredients.

“Mr. Shaffer is stable for now, but I can’t say for how long. We need to gather the ingredients and make the Sanctifix as soon as possible to cure him fully,” Dustin said, concern etched on his face.

Using true energy to prolong life was a temporary solution, not a permanent fix. With time, Mr. Shaffer’s condition would deteriorate. If they continued on this path, there would be no way out.

“It’s my fault for not being able to find the other two rare herbs,” Brooke said, filled with guilt. Despite his reputation in the medical field, he had hoped his connections could help locate the herbs, but he was disappointed.

“Don’t blame yourself, Dr. Busch. Precious herbs can be hard to come by. We can only do what we can and leave the rest to fate.” Dustin sighed softly.

“Let’s hope Mr. Shaffer recovers soon,’ Brooke whispered a silent prayer, his hands clasped together. Suddenly, a faint knock came from the door. Dustin opened it to find Maximus standing outside.

“What’s going on?” Dustin asked.

“Dustin, someone is looking for you outside,” Maximus replied.

“Who is it?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.

“I don’t know, but he looks pretty arrogant,” Maximus said.

“Alright, let’s go see.” Dustin decided to see who was it. A black Land Rover was parked at the front gate. A well-built, rugged- looking young man stood with his arms crossed, leaning against the car door. He gave off a cold and aloof demeanor. It was none other than Dexter.

“Bastard! You finally decided to come out? I thought you were going to play the hermit forever!” Dexter grumbled and huffed once he saw Dustin.

“What are you here for?” Dustin asked, puzzled. “What? Don’t you remember the duel we arranged three days ago?” Dexter narrowed his eyes.

“Duel? Oh, I remember now. There was something like that.” Dustin nodded and I gave Dexter a quick once-over.

“So, what’s the deal? Is the Fallon family sending you out to play their hand again?”

“Hmph! Of course, it’s not me. The one fighting you today is my older brother Declan!” Dexter proudly said.

“Is your older brother Declan very strong?” Dustin casually inquired.

“Strong? He’s not just strong; let me enlighten you! He is recognized as a martial arts prodigy! A few years ago, he joined Celestial Alliance and became a senior disciple of the Enforcement Hall.

“His cultivation is earth-shattering! Dealing with small fry like you is just child’s play!” Dexter sneered.

“Alright, enough chitchat. Let’s get in the car. The sooner we’re done, the sooner we can finish and go home. I have a lot of things to do,” Dustin said, uninterested in prolonging the conversation.

Dustin’s calm demeanor left Dexter flabbergasted. This bastard wasn’t afraid of death?

“What are you waiting for? Get in the car!” Dustin urged.

“Hmph! Don’t regret it!” Dexter gritted his teeth. He hopped into the car, and with a step on the gas pedal, they sped away.

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?
