An Understated Dominance Chapter 1492 by Marina Vittori

“Whoa! So many members from the Mystic Arts Order are involved in this business deal. It must be something big! “Dustin exclaimed, looking surprised.

Several grandmaster martial artists stood behind Abigail-some on the verge of becoming grandmasters and others who had become divine-level martial artists.

With such power, which was exceptionally rare, they were more than capable of taking on the Four Ancient Houses. “This is indeed significant because the person who initiated this deal is-”

Abigail was about to speak, but an elder behind her interrupted, “Grand Sorceress! This is a crucial Mystic Arts Order secret. It must not be disclosed to outsiders!”

“What?” Abigail glanced back; her gaze startled the elder, who visibly shivered. “Let me make this clear. This person is my mentor, not an outsider. You better watch your words.”

“I apologize.” The elder immediately lowered his head, genuinely fearful.

“Abigail, forget about it,” Dustin said, shaking his head. “Since it’s a secret, I won’t pry. I’m not a fan of trouble; sometimes ignorance is bliss.”

“Sure then.” Abigail flashed a smile, not pushing the matter further. Revealing this secret could indeed bring some risks for Dustin.

“Sir, I’m feeling a bit hungry. Would you take me for a late-night snack?” Abigail pouted, sounding playful.

“No problem! You just arrived in Oakvale; tonight, I’ll treat you to some good food and help you unwind!”

The next morning, in a VIP ward at South City Hospital. Ezra, covered in bandages, lay unconscious on the hospital bed. After narrowly escaping danger the previous night, he rushed home only to collapse, leading to an urgent hospitalization.

“Doctor, how is my son? Is there any danger?” Barry asked, looking worried.

“Mr. Swanson, please rest assured. Your son suffered superficial injuries only, and we’ve carefully treated them. It’s nothing serious,” the doctor reassured him.

“That’s a relief.” Barry sighed but asked again, “But why hasn’t my son woken up yet after all this time?”

“Your son experienced shock last night, and his emotions were unstable. We administered a sedative to let him sleep peacefully, aiding in his recovery. He should wake up soon,” the doctor explained. As the doctor finished speaking, Ezra slowly opened his eyes.

“He’s awake! He’s really awake!” Barry’s face brightened. He quickly approached the bed, asking with concern, “Ezra, how do you feel? Do you feel any discomfort anywhere in your body?”

“Dad, how did I end up here?” Ezra looked around, confused.

“When you came home last night, you were covered in blood, and it scared me! Fortunately, the timely treatment saved you from any life-threatening danger,” Barry explained sternly.

“Ezra, what exactly happened? Who hurt you like this? Tell me, and I’ll make sure justice is served for you!”

“Last night?”

Ezra first appeared puzzled, then seemed to recall something. His expression changed, and he exclaimed, “Dad! Notify everyone immediately! 2

“Cancel all collaborations with the Welch family. From now on, our ties with them are severed!”

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?
