An Understated Dominance Chapter 1561 by Marina Vittori

Amidst the chaos, Dustin kneeled beside Lana’s motionless form, lost in thoughts. Suddenly, approaching footsteps brought him back to the present.

Dustin gazed up to find Matteo, accompanied by others, rushing toward them urgently. The gunshots had alerted the Camron family.

Realizing Lana’s prolonged absence, Matteo swiftly sensed trouble and efficiently rallied a group for support. However, upon arriving and witnessing the grim scene, he stood frozen in disbelief as if struck by lightning.

Stumbling forward, he reached Lana’s motionless form. After confirming the grim reality, he released a gut- wrenching, mournful cry. “Lana! My daughter, Lana!”

Matteo collapsed beside her, and his cries filled with sorrow. Since his wife’s passing, he and Lana had been each other’s pillars of strength. He had envisioned witnessing Lana’s wedding, rejoicing in her motherhood journey, and holding his grandchildren.

But today, unexpectedly, marked a farewell to the living and the departed. In that instant, a sharp blade seemed to pierce his heart.

“I’m sorry; it’s all my fault,” Dustin confessed with his head down, guilt etched across his face. Were it not for him, Scott wouldn’t have targeted Lana. If Lana hadn’t tried to save him, she wouldn’t have met such a tragic end.

Dustin was always cautious about making friends. He was now faced with the harsh reality that fate had snatched that friend away right before his eyes after finally finding a kindred spirit.

In the aftermath of that crushing blow, Dustin found himself consumed by a blend of grief and self-reproach.

“Why! Why did this have to happen? Dustin! It’s because of you that Lana is dead!” Matteo seethed with resentment, delivering a forceful punch to Dustin’s face.

Choosing not to block the punch with his true energy, Dustin was propelled backward by the force. He landed heavily on the ground, and blood trickled from the corner of his mouth.

“I’m responsible for Lana’s death. You can hit me and yell at me -I deserved it, “Dustin confessed with a bowed head and a hoarse voice.

“Get out! I don’t want to see you again! “Matteo roared with red eyes and frustration.

“I’m sorry.” Dustin cast a deep gaze at Lana’s lifeless body before rising and departing.

All he could do now was seek retribution for Lana, making the wrongdoer pay, whether it was Scott or the Moseys. Even if it meant risking himself, he was determined to bring justice for Lana.

Back in his car, Dustin dialed a number back in his car. He stated bluntly, ” Adam, I need to know Scott’s whereabouts, and the sooner, the better.”

“Okay, give me ten minutes.” Adam didn’t say more and promptly ended the call. Ten minutes later, Dustin answered the ringing phone.

Adam delivered the information. “Scott is hiding out at Jadeleaf Manor. It’s Anders’s territory. Be careful.”

“Got it,” Dustin responded and hung up, slamming his foot on the gas pedal and heading straight for Jadeleaf Manor. Regardless of who protected Scott, today, he would face the consequences.

Meanwhile, inside Jadeleaf Manor, Anders, known as the Veros Warrior, was joyously celebrating with his friends and associates.

Almost all of them were high-ranking members of the Moseys, wielding power and influence across various industries. Though individually inconspicuous, their combined force was nothing short of terrifying.

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?
