An Understated Dominance Chapter 1480 by Marina Vittori

Dustin, Lana, Bo, and others gathered around the table to drink and chit-chat. Their new company had just launched, and they had already profited quite a lot. It was the perfect end to their day. They decided to celebrate their success at the Regal Court after a busy day.

“Hahaha, what an amazing day! That bitch couple, Ezra and Eleanor, finally failed for once! I can’t help but laugh whenever I remember their faces when they lost.” Bo laughed loudly with his glass raised. 1

He always disliked Eleanor and Ezra. They even went to threaten his sister at her place a few days ago. He finally got his revenge today.

“This is all thanks to Mr. Dawson’s social network. You managed to invite the Fallon family and the Ballard family today. If not, we wouldn’t be this successful!” Lana raised her glass with a smile.

“Hold on “Bo was taken aback and frantically said, “I thought the Camrons invited the ancient houses? How is the Dawson family involved?”

“What?” Lana’s face froze. “Mr. Dawson, are you joking? We, the Camrons, are just a mediocre family. How would we ever have the opportunity to get support from the ancient houses?”

“The problem is, the Dawsons would never have the chance as well!” Bo commented with a curious expression.

He might have used his social connection to gather support from other influential families, but the Fallons and the Ballards were beyond him.

To be honest, he was incapable of doing so. It didn’t matter if his father had offered to help. The chance of success was slim. The difference between a great family and an ancient house was just too huge.

“If it was neither of us, who could it be? “Lana looked confused. She had assumed that the Dawsons paid the ancient houses a handsome amount of money to get their support. From the looks of it now, it wasn’t so.

“Dustin, could it have been you?” Bo suddenly turned to look at Dustin at that thought, his gaze full of disbelief.

“Me?” Dustin chuckled and replied ambiguously, “If even you couldn’t do it, how could I, a poor man, achieve the impossible?”

“That’s right.” Bo nodded thoughtfully. “Only the royalty and the dukes can get the support of the ancient houses.”

“That’s fine. Let’s not get caught up in these tiny details. It’s also possible that the ancient houses saw the potential in Dew Balm and decided to promote it.” Lana looked at Dustin carefully before changing the topic.

She had a feeling that Dustin was a person with many secrets. However, now was not the time to find out about his secrets.

“Alright, let’s drink up!” Bo got tired of thinking. He raised his glass and started chugging down. Soon, they had finished a bottle of red wine.

“Waiter! Please get us two more bottles of your best red wine!” Bo shouted toward the door. A few moments later, a waitress walked with two bottles of red wine, her head lowered.

“Here! Let’s drink!” Bo poured the wine into three glasses and got ready to chug it all down after clinking glasses. However, Dustin raised his hand to stop him as Bo was about to drink.

“Something’s fishy about the wine. Don’t drink it!”

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?
