An Understated Dominance Chapter 1540 by Marina Vittori

The most important thing was to find Donovan and ask him about the truth behind what had happened.

“Mr. Shaffer, you should rest up since you’ve just woken up. If there’s anything you need, just tell me any time.” Dustin helped Cinna lie back on the bed.

“Your Highness!” Cinna suddenly grabbed Dustin’s arm. He said earnestly, “What happened then is all in the past now. Forget about it.

“If you continue investigating, it will only put you in danger. I believe the Princess Consort would have wanted you to live your life peacefully!”

“Mr. Shaffer, this is an unresolved matter that weighs heavily on my heart, and I feel guilty for it. If I do not get to the bottom of it, I shall never find peace,” Dustin explained.

Seeing the look of determination in his eyes, Cinna could only sigh. He did not say any more. He knew that with Dustin’s stubborn personality, he would never back down on something when his heart was already set on it.

“Mr. Shaffer, all you need to do now is to rest well. Don’t put your thoughts on such trivial matters. I’ll deal with them. Just rest up.”

Dustin shot him a smile to reassure him before turning to walk out the door. Now that Cinna was safe, he finally felt at ease. His goal was to find Donovan Linsor, the Prince of Carsonne, who was now in hiding. And only the person in Aylka could help him with that.

After he left the villa, Dustin made a call to a mysterious number. Soon, the lazy voice of a woman could be heard. “Hey, why are you calling me again? Haven’t I given you the Iceheart Lotus you requested last time?”

“About the Iceheart Lotus, I’d like to thank you for it.” Dustin exchanged pleasantries before going to the main reason for his call. “I’m calling you to ask about something.”

“Stop right there!” The woman stopped him before he could continue any further.

“Logan Rhys, please do not overstep your boundaries. I made it clear the last time that I’ll only help you once. We’re even now. Are you going back on your word?”

“It’s true that we’re square now. But if you help me this time, I’d owe you a favor. If you ever run into a situation where you need help, I’ll be there in a heartbeat,” Dustin promised.

“I have my way in the palace. What can you help me with?” the woman asked.

“Everyone runs into trouble at some point or another. It’ll do you no harm having another ally.

“Take this as an investment, if you will. You should know that the Rhys family always keeps our word,” Dustin persuaded.

“Fair point.” The woman hesitated for a moment before continuing, “Alright, I’ll hear you out. If it isn’t too much of a hassle, I might consider helping you.”

“I’d like to ask you about the Prince of Carsonne.” Dustin cut straight to the point. “Ten years ago, he suddenly retired from the public eye.

“I’d like to know where he went. Where is he hiding now?”

“The Prince of Carsonne? Why are you asking about him?” the woman asked curiously.

“It’s a secret. It’ll do you no good knowing too much. It might get you in trouble,” Dustin answered secretively.

“Forget it then. I hate trouble.” She seemed to have lost interest.

“Do we have a deal then?” Dustin asked cautiously.

“I’ll help you out just this once for the sake of your mother. But remember, this is the last time I’m helping you!” the woman said sternly.

“Sure,” Dustin answered. “How long will it take to have an answer?”

“You’ll have your answer in three days. Wait for it.” With that, the call ended.

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?
