An Understated Dominance Chapter 1521 by Marina Vittori

After dealing with Florence, Dahlia turned to Dustin and said calmly, “Dear sir, miss, I’m very sorry for what happened earlier. I assure you there won’t be a next time. My apologies again for the disturbance.”

After she spoke, she lowered her head slightly to show her sincerity. The crowd nodded in approval as they watched her apology.

As Sir Mosey’s goddaughter, her status was second only to him. And offering a public apology was a level of humility not easily found. Her awareness of putting the situation first made the public realize that Sir Mosey had put his trust in the right person.

“There’s no need for such formality, Ms. Nicholson. We never wanted to make the situation worse. Having this resolved peacefully was the best outcome we could ask for.” Dustin nodded slightly.

“Sir, you are indeed a sensible man. May I ask for your name?” Dahlia asked politely.

“I’m Rhett Adams. And this is my sister, Abigail Adams,” Dustin replied.

“Mr. and Ms. Adams, welcome. You are our guests, so please take a seat upstairs.” Dahlia nodded. As she spoke, she gestured for a waiter and arranged front seats for Dustin and Abigail.

“Thank you.” Without hesitation, Dustin led Abigail to their seats in the front row. They had drawn quite the attention, but luckily, it didn’t escalate into a full- blown conflict. It seemed unlikely to affect their plans.

“Dahlia, why were you so kind to them? I’d have kicked them out. They’re clearly no one important,” Florence complained.

“Are you not ashamed of your words?” Dahlia gave her a cold glance.

“Don’t you know what would have happened if the situation escalated? Once word gets out, the Moseys will be known as bullies. And the reputation Godfather had built for a decade would be tarnished!”

“It’s not that serious. We were just teaching two ignorant people a lesson. What does it have to do with Sir Mosey’s reputation?” Florence thought Dahlia was making a mountain out of a molehill.

“Not that serious? Open your eyes and look around you. Who are the people in attendance today?” Dahlia was disappointed.

She went on, “Creating such an absurd spectacle in the presence of these influential people is a slap to Godfather’s face.

“Did you even think of the consequences if someone with malicious intent took advantage of the situation and spread damaging news?”

As the saying went, “great power invited great scrutiny”. The Moseys drew considerable attention, and they had to approach every matter carefully. They had to prevent others from gaining the upper hand to prevent any potential threat.

“I… How would I know there would be consequences? Besides, it wasn’t my fault,” Florence said guiltily.

“That’s enough!” Dahlia frowned.

“I don’t care what the reason was, but all of you must remember one thing. You must think about the bigger picture today. Don’t do anything that would damage the Moseys’ reputation. Do you hear me?”

“We understand.” Florence, Julie, and the rest nodded repeatedly. They finally realized the gravity of the situation. While they were used to being arrogant in the past, they had to restrain themselves for today’s special occasion.

“Alright, now grab a seat for yourselves. And don’t cause any more trouble,” Dahlia reminded them before returning to her tasks.

As she was now in charge of more than half of the Moseys’ businesses, she had become the family’s de facto manager.

More guests had arrived as time passed. Influential figures were walking into the guest lounge one after the other.

As noon approached, Sir Mosey, the birthday star, finally made his formal entrance. Under the gaze of the crowd, a middle-aged man in traditional clothing walked in with a gentle smile.

He had a slightly plump figure, kind eyes, and lacked the imposing aura of an authoritative figure, appearing quite down-to-earth.

At first glance, he seemed like a regular middle-aged man from the neighborhood. However, as soon as he entered, all of the guests in the hall stood up.

“Greetings, Sir Mosey!” they said respectfully in unison.

“Alright, alright, there was no need for that. Please take a seat and make yourselves at home,” Seamus said with a warm smile.

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?
