An Understated Dominance Chapter 1482 by Marina Vittori

“Take her away for interrogation!” Elara ordered. With a wave of her hand, two of her subordinates dragged the waitress away. They couldn’t let any suspect escape in a situation like this.

“Both of you, check if there was any stranger in the kitchen tonight with the kitchen staff.

“As for the both of you, check the surveillance footage. Make sure you check every single person who came into the restaurant tonight.”

Elara wasted no time in giving out orders. Bo’s bodyguards immediately did as they were told.

“Mr. Dawson, all this was my mistake. I almost caused a disaster. I’ll gladly accept any punishment.” Elara apologized with a bow.

“It wasn’t your fault. Who would have expected such a wicked method?” Bo appeared stern.

“Have you upset anyone lately?” Lana asked suddenly.

“No one that I can think of.” Bo shook his head. “I rarely go out in public, so I haven’t had the chance to upset anyone. Bo’s eye suddenly twitched as he uttered, “Hold on! Could it be the Welch and Swanson families?

“We caused them a substantial loss today, and they’re upset about it. Could this be their attempt at revenge?”

“That’s possible!” Lana nodded in agreement. Judging from Eleanor and Ezra’s personalities, they would never give up easily, especially after suffering a huge loss. She just didn’t think that it would come this soon.

“What do you think, Dustin?” Bo turned to look at him and asked.

“What else is there to think about? Other than the Welch and Swanson families who are in cahoots, I couldn’t think of anyone else who is this petty.” Dustin gave a noncommittal comment.

“Fuck! These animals are really behind this!” Bo slammed the table angrily, shouting, “Elara, gather our people! I’m going to confront them now!”

“There’s no need to rush.” Dustin raised his hand to stop them.

“If you confront them openly, they would never admit to it. Do you really want to go to war with the Welch and Swanson families?”

“What should I do then? I don’t want to let this slide easily.” Bo was pissed. He was not one to tolerate nonsense. After all, an eye for an eye.

“Of course not.” Dustin replied calmly, “If they prefer to stay in the dark, then we shall meet them there.”

“Really? What do you have in mind?” Bo was immediately intrigued. The mystic arts were much more terrifying than normal assassination attempts.

It was not something that could be prevented. The only way was to find the culprit as soon as possible to end the curse.

“If my guess is right, the person who cast this spell should have a mother worm whose only purpose is to reproduce. There’s a unique bond between the person casting the spell and the mother worm.

“I can use the zombie worm to locate the mother worm. With that, I’ll be able to find the mastermind,” Dustin commented calmly.

“Alright! We’ll do it this way then!” Bo slapped the table. “Dustin, feel free to let me know whenever you need help.”

“You don’t have to do anything. You should just go home and sleep.” Dustin replied.

“What? Sleep?” Bo was caught off guard and confused. Lana and Elara looked at each other, perplexed.

“The enemy is in the dark, and we’re in the light. You’d tip them off if you show any reaction toward it. Just let me deal with this. This curse was meant for me anyway.”

As he finished his sentence, Dustin took a glass filled with zombie worms and chugged it immediately.

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?
