An Understated Dominance Chapter 1597 by Marina Vittori

Dustin glanced at the keys on the table and said meaningfully, “All this secrecy, just what are you scheming?”

“You sound as if two weak women like us are capable of plotting a scheme.” Eleanor forced a smile.

“Yeah, we’ve sincerely repented and have no other ulterior motives. We swear on our lives!” Elena swore, going all out to convince Dustin. Eleanor’s eyes twitched when she heard her, wishing she could slap her across the face.

“For heaven’s sake, why did you include me in your swear?” Eleanor muttered silently to herself.

“Since there’s no scheming involved, let’s head up together,” Dustin said casually.

Eleanor’s expression froze.

She glanced at Elena and was quick to come up with an explanation. “It’s not convenient for Elena since she’s in a wheelchair. I have to stay here and take care of her.

“Besides, the murderer is treacherous. It’s dangerous for us to go up there.”

“Exactly, it’s too dangerous and inconvenient.” Elena nodded repeatedly in agreement. Dustin could tell they were panicking. Instead of exposing them, he took out a bottle of medicine and placed it on the table.

He said coldly, “Honestly, I don’t trust you. Just in case, I need both of you to drink this poison. If anything happens to me up there, I’ll see the both of you in hell.”

“What?” Eleanor and Elena froze, breaking out in cold sweat. Already feeling guilty, they were now completely flustered. They didn’t expect Dustin to make such a demand.

“Dustin, is that really necessary? We’ll be waiting downstairs. Drinking poison is too extreme, isn’t it?” Eleanor swallowed nervously. 2

“That’s right, I’m in a wheelchair. I can’t exactly run away.” Elena forced a smile.

“What’s the matter? Do you not dare, or are you feeling guilty?”

Dustin looked at them suspiciously. “I can’t trust you if you refuse to drink it. So there’s no point in continuing this discussion.”

Upon hearing this, both of them exchanged glances and reluctantly nodded.

“Alright! Just to prove our sincerity, we’ll drink it!” Eleanor said through gritted teeth. After all, risks were necessary to gain success. It seemed like if they avoided drinking the poison, they wouldn’t be able to bluff their way through.

They would figure out their next steps later. With so many skilled doctors in Oakvale, neutralizing the poison shouldn’t be a problem.

Eleanor took a deep breath before finally grabbing the medicine bottle and taking a forceful sip. After swallowing, she handed the bottle to Elena.

“Do I really have to drink it?” Elena was almost in tears. If she had known that it would come to this, she wouldn’t have come along in the first place.

“Of course! We have nothing to hide!”

Eleanor shot her a glare.

“Alright…” Elena sighed in resignation. She reluctantly took the poison and took a light sip.

“Great, it seems like the both of you are truly committed to this.” Dustin smirked coldly. He then picked up the keys and headed straight upstairs.

There would only be two scenarios waiting for him on the third floor in diamond suite four. Either the murderer would be inside like Eleanor claimed, or it was a murderous trap.

Regardless, he was determined to find out. He was dying to see what kind of tricks they had up their sleeves.

The third floor of Grace Brothel was a special area made into rooms.

After a night of fun, the wealthy patrons would often find a charming companion and proceed to the third floor to have a private moment. The rooms on the third floor were soundproof and designed to provide a high level of privacy.

Some distinguished guests even had specially designed private passages for their access to prevent being noticed. Dustin made his way slowly upstairs and displayed the key card to the guard by the entrance.

“Sir, this way, please.”

Upon getting a closer look, the bodyguard quickly had a respectful demeanor and led Dustin inside personally.

Grace Brothel was separated into four sections-Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Copper. The diamond rooms were the most prestigious rooms that even ordinary wealthy individuals lacked the qualifications to enter.

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?
