An Understated Dominance Chapter 1636 by Marina Vittori

Dustin had never expected anyone to risk their lives for him. Donovan’s decision to stay silent to save himself wasn’t inherently wrong.

“Your father saved me countless times and put so much trust in me, but I did nothing. It’s genuinely embarrassing,” Donovan lamented.

If Dustin had scolded or hit him, it might have been easier for Donovan to bear. However, Dustin showed no intention of blaming him, intensifying his guilt.

“Abbot Lumen, I have a question. We had no issues with the Dragon Guard, so why were they trying to eliminate us? “Dustin asked again.

“The reason is simple. You pose a threat to the established order,” Donovan said helplessly.

“Ten years ago, your family’s West Lucozian monarchy dominated the scene, overshadowing imperial authority. For the organization, your existence threatened their status, something they couldn’t tolerate.”

“Such a slight threat and the organization chose to annihilate us?” Dustin furrowed his brow, a steely glint in his eyes.

“Logan, you’re underestimating the impact of your family.” Donovan sighed softly. He went on, “If it were only your father’s renown, the organization might endure or seek a diplomatic resolution. However, your entire family is exceptionally remarkable.

“Your father, Rufus, was a natural military genius, undefeated in countless battles. He was acknowledged as a king among kings, leading a formidable army of fifty thousand.

“Your mother, Alba Quinton, had exceptional prowess and was already an ultimate grandmaster in martial arts in her thirties. She was number five in the Astonishing World List, earning acclaim as unparalleled worldwide.”

Donovan continued, “And you are equally extraordinary. With a guardian beast since birth and a profound destiny, you achieved grandmaster status at just fifteen.

“Every member of your family surpasses the others in excellence. If allowed to grow unchecked, not even the organization could withstand the brilliance of your family.”

He concluded, “To secure their position and power, they orchestrated a brutal event targeting you and your mother, aiming to eliminate any potential future threats. This is the truth you sought.”

After hearing this, Dustin clenched his fists, his face darkening. He always thought his mother’s death was related to imperial authority, but he never expected an even stronger force behind it.

And this force, driven by fear of threatening its status and power, didn’t hesitate to commit a bloodbath that engulfed Oakvale.

“Dragon Guard!” Dustin gritted his teeth. There was a fierce glint in his eyes, and he seemed downright murderous. An organization that abused its power had no place to exist!

“Logan, the influence of the organization is overwhelming, and their leader is like a god. Many powers in the world are under their control.

“Even if you know the truth now, don’t act recklessly. Otherwise, the tragedy of the past will repeat itself,” Donovan warned sternly.

“Thank you, Abbot Lumen, for the reminder. I know what to do,” Dustin nodded. Taking a deep breath, he quickly suppressed the anger within him.

He had endured for ten years, so a couple more days wouldn’t matter. It was better to plan carefully, discern the weaknesses of the organization, and then strike.

“Oh, Logan, there’s another matter I must caution you about.”

At this moment, Donovan seemed to remember something and said, “The attack back then didn’t solely come from an external threat. According to my investigation, there was a traitor in your midst.”

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?
