An Understated Dominance Chapter 1536 by Marina Vittori

“Do you smell that, Max?” Brooke seemed to sense something, and he took a deep breath.

“You mean the herbal scent?” Maximus tilted his head curiously. “It’s been there all along, hasn’t it? What’s wrong?”

“No, it’s different now. It’s quite special.” Brooke went up to the door of the alchemy room. Then, he crouched down to catch a whiff of the scent wafting out from the gap under the door.

He spent most of his time around herbs. Thus, he could easily detect the slightest change in scent. All of a sudden, the door creaked open.

Dustin was just about to step out of the room when he spotted Brooke crouching on the ground in a weird position. “Dr. Busch, what’s wrong? Are you having a stomachache?”

“Uhh…” Brooke smiled sheepishly before quickly reacting. He promptly asked, “Dustin, how is it? Did you succeed in producing Sanctifix?”

Dustin sighed and put on a dejected expression when he heard that. At the sight of Dustin in such a state, Brooke froze and paled. “You f-failed?” he asked with a tremor in his voice.

Oh no. If Dustin failed to produce Sanctifix, then all the herbs were wasted, and nobody would be able to save Cinna!

“Well, I wouldn’t say I failed. It’s just that I intended to produce a top-grade Sanctifix, but I only managed to come up with a good-quality one. There’s a slight difference in the quality, that’s all.” Dustin shook his head.

The corners of Brooke’s lips twitched involuntarily. He was exasperated. Was this the time to be fussy about quality? What did it matter what quality the pill was as long as it worked? And why was Dustin looking so dejected?

Brooke wasn’t young anymore, so couldn’t take such false alarms!

“So… You’ve succeeded?” Brooke asked.

“Of course! I wouldn’t do anything unless I’m confident I’d succeed.”

Dustin nodded with a smile and took out the blue Sanctifix. Brooke took the pill over to have a look. He was elated. “This is great! This is amazing! Mr. Shaffer will be alright now!”

The whole time that Dustin had busied himself with producing the pill, Brooke had also been waiting. He had waited for an entire day and night. He could finally be at ease now.

“Dr. Busch, let’s not waste any more time. Give Mr. Shaffer the pill,” Dustin reminded.

“Oh, right, right! We must save him first!” Brooke dared not waste another moment. Holding the pill carefully in both hands, he jogged into Cinna’s room.

Cinna still looked sickly thin and pale. His breathing was also light and shallow. He looked like a dead man.

“Dustin, are there any restrictions for consuming Sanctifix?” Brooke suddenly thought to ask.

“No. Just place it inside his mouth,” Dustin instructed.

“Alright.” Brooke slowly pried Cinna’s mouth apart and slipped the Sanctifix in.  It dissolved into a blue liquid the moment it entered Cinna’s mouth. It flowed down his throat and slowly seeped into his body.

The medical properties of the pill gradually healed and restored Cinna’s ruined circulatory pathways. It started from his heart, to all his other vital organs, and then to his skin and bones.

After the healing of the Sanctifix, Cinna’s body seemed to slowly come alive like a tree receiving rain after a long drought.

They could see his pale face gradually regaining color, and his breathing got deeper. Impurities and dirt were discharged through every pore of his body.

After half a day, Cinna, who had been unconscious for a decade, slowly opened his eyes!

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?
