An Understated Dominance Chapter 1457 by Marina Vittori

“Gentlemen, please stop arguing for now and calm down!” Dustin quickly intervened when he sensed the situation getting out of control. Otherwise, if they continued bickering, they might start fighting physically.

“Dustin, it’s time to make a choice. Are you going with the Fallons or the Ballards?” Griffin asked.

“Young man, think about it carefully. Don’t make a decision you will regret.” Simon added, stroking his beard.

For a moment, all eyes were fixed on Dustin. It was a rare sight to witness two influential figures vying for an individual. While it was an immense honor, it also caused a tremendous dilemma.

The Fallons were a family with a strong military background. They were an ideal fit for Dustin, given his status as a grandmaster. In terms of his future, the Fallons were undoubtedly the better choice.

However, as one of the ancient houses, the Ballards were as strong as the Fallons. When combined with Natasha’s influence, their proposition became even more persuasive.

Most importantly, selecting one side would inevitably upset the other. Both opportunities carried their own risks.

“I genuinely appreciate both of your generous offers. But I reiterate my stance. I’m not interested in joining any affiliation, so I can only apologize, “Dustin declined once more.

“What?” The crowd exchanged glances, looking baffled. Dustin had been presented with the chance of a lifetime by both families!

However, he opted to decline them both. The crowd couldn’t help but think he was foolish.

“Dustin, this is a rare opportunity. Are you sure you are going to pass it up?” Griffin asked in shock.

“I’m sure.” Dustin nodded. “Young man, do you realize that many people try their hardest to join the ancient houses but are brushed aside?

“You have two promising paths in front of you right now. Are you not going to walk on either of them?” Simon was puzzled.

“I have my own path to follow,” Dustin replied.

“Impressive, you’ve got ambition.” Simon nodded as he smiled.

“Alright, I won’t force you if you’re not willing. If you get into trouble in the future, feel free to come to me.” Simon had looked down on Dustin initially, but his refusal had earned his respect.

Men should carve out their own paths. Relying on others could easily cloud someone’s ambitions and aspirations.

“Thank you, My Lord.” Dustin nodded to express his gratitude.

“Dustin, I respect your decision. Of course, you’re always welcome to visit me if you change your mind. My doors are always open.” Griffin smiled faintly.

“Thank you, Sir Fallon.” Dustin nodded again.

“My Lord, I have other matters to attend to. I’ll be taking my leave now.’ Griffin shook Simon’s hand before turning around to leave.

Although he didn’t succeed in recruiting Dustin, he took solace in the fact that Dustin didn’t join the Ballards either.

That meant that the Fallons still had a chance to win Dustin over. After all, building a friendly relationship with a talent like Dustin posed numerous advantages without drawbacks.

“Sweetheart, I won’t play the third wheel any longer, either. Enjoy your time with him.” Simon left after saying his goodbyes. With his granddaughter around, Dustin wouldn’t be going anywhere.

“Dear, let’s go and have something to eat.” Natasha smiled sweetly. With her arms still linked with Dustin, they walked out of Celestial Dojo.

Today’s duel had helped Dustin make a name for himself. He defeated many of the Fallon family’s top talents and won the approval of Natasha’s grandfather.

He truly managed to kill two birds with one stone!

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?
