An Understated Dominance Chapter 1586 by Marina Vittori

Scarlet nodded. “Seamus has plenty of adopted sons and daughters. Losing one or two won’t bother him. I’ll handle it personally. If they put up a fight, we’re not afraid to go to war.”

She never accepted Anders to be called the God of War. If there were an opportunity, she’d be more than willing to have a showdown to prove who was truly stronger.

“And those two big-shot families, the Welch and Forrest families, acting all high and mighty. They really need a reality check,” Dustin remarked casually.

“That’s easy. Just dig up their family’s dark history, expose them, and send them to prison. No need for elaborate plans,” she replied.

For the Spanner family, it was easy to take down the Welch and Forrest family. There was no need for intricate schemes. A simple command could make them pay for what they had done.

This stark difference between the great families and ancient houses showcased the hierarchy. Even though the great families were incredibly wealthy, their riches and status didn’t compare to the true power and influence of the ancient houses.

That night, in a private hospital, Elena let out groans of pain. She would occasionally cough up blood.

Scarlet’s kick had caused internal injuries, and despite treatments by doctors, Elena was barely clinging to life. However, a full recovery seemed unlikely in the short term.

“That Scarlet bitch! She went too far! I hope she rots and turns into a complete monster!” Elena, grimacing in pain, couldn’t help but let out her frustration.

“Watch what you’re saying.” Eleanor, sitting beside her, was startled and quickly motioned for Elena to lower her voice.

“Elena, you can’t speak like that. If Scarlet hears it, you might be in even bigger trouble.”

Scarlet, the Goddess of War from Dragonmarsh, and one of the Spanners ‘ twins of the powerful Spanner family were not individuals they could afford to offend. Plus, considering her temper, retaliation was practically guaranteed.

“What’s there to fear? There’s no one else here. Can’t I complain a bit?” Elena spoke with bitterness, though she instinctively lowered her voice.

“Watch your words; you never know who might be listening. Trouble often starts with loose tongues,” Eleanor warned.

“If I can’t curse Scarlet, can I at least curse Dustin?”

Through gritted teeth, Elena said, ” That darn Dustin, he’s the reason I’m in this mess. Once I’m back on my feet, he will regret it!”

“Elena, times have changed. Now, Dustin has Scarlet backing him up. Going against him is too risky.” Eleanor shook her head.

While Eleanor shared Elena’s desire to destroy Dustin, considerations had to be taken into account. Scarlet’s protection made it a dangerous move, and they lacked the courage to challenge her.

“But we can’t just sit back and take it, can we?” Elena expressed her reluctance to accept the situation.

“Of course not!”

Eleanor suddenly lowered her voice and added, “Scott is Sir Mosey’s godson and Anders’ godbrother. Scott’s death won’t be left as it is.

“Once we report the situation truthfully, the Moseys will take care of Dustin.”

“But… Dustin has Scarlet protecting him, doesn’t he?” Elena asked, feeling a bit puzzled.

“Scarlet and Dustin are at most ordinary friends. I don’t believe she would openly oppose the Moseys for a small fry like Dustin,” Eleanor asserted confidently.

In her view, Dustin, without power or influence, wasn’t worth it for Scarlet to cause a major conflict.

“”That makes sense.”

Upon hearing this, Elena’s eyes lit up. I’ll give the Moseys a call. I’ll spice up the details a bit, and when they show up, Dustin is going to face the consequences!”

As she reached for her phone, ready to make a call, it suddenly vibrated. It was a call from her father. She quickly answered it, and a furious roar came through the phone.

“You troublemaker! What have you done? Our family’s in shambles because of you!”

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?
