An Understated Dominance Chapter 1703 by Marina Vittori

As night fell, Dustin finally returned to the villa in the southern city of Oakvale. As for Scarlet, Adam, Abigail, and the others, they had gone back to prepare for the upcoming unrest.

So much had happened during his trip to Quandary Mountain. Although he had learned the truth and eradicated the Dragon Guard, Seth’s death left him in deep sorrow.

He was exhausted, both physically and mentally. He longed for a good night’s sleep, free from thoughts and responsibilities. He wanted to just drift into sleep and wake up naturally.

Perhaps tomorrow would be better.

Their car came to a stop at the entrance of the villa, and Dustin got off wearily.

He had just opened the door when he spotted a woman sitting in the living room. She was dressed in white, wearing a veil that covered her face.

The woman had a graceful figure and emitted a unique fragrance. Although her features were not visible, she gave off a gentle, outstanding allure.

“Grace?” Dustin recognized the woman seated on the sofa immediately. Her attire, demeanor, and distinctive fragrance were hard to forget.

“Dustin, you’re back?” Maximus poured a cup of tea and placed it on the table before approaching Dustin.

He informed him, “Ms. Linsor here has come to see you again, claiming it’s important. However, she’s being mysterious about it. Be careful.”

“Don’t worry, I know what to do. You can go and rest now.” Dustin nodded, signaling Maximus to leave. He then sat on the nearby sofa. “Ms. Linsor, may I know what brings you here at this hour?” he asked calmly.

“I know what happened at Quandary Mountain today,” Grace said.

“And?” Dustin was calm, not betraying any surprise. It was obvious that Grace was no ordinary person and was most likely a member of the royal family. It was not surprising that she had found out about the major events that happened today.

Not to mention, she was a disciple of the Regal Observatory and excelled in divination. She probably knew more than the average member of the royal family.

“Seth had severed the vital force. This significantly impacts the fate of the nation. To recover what has been lost, I must collect the five Dracan essences emitted by the vital force.

“However, this is an extremely challenging task that I cannot accomplish alone. So I hope you can help me.” Grace got straight to the point.

“And why should I help you?” Dustin countered.

“This happened because of you. You are involved and can’t just escape responsibility. Besides, you’ll also benefit greatly once we locate the Dracan essences. It’s a mutually advantageous deal,” Grace said earnestly.

“I’m sorry, I’m tired right now and not interested in getting myself involved in these matters. Please find someone else,” Dustin refused flatly.

“Logan, this is your destiny. You can’t escape it. For yourself, for West Lucozia, and for Dragonmarsh, we must find the Dracan essences. It is the only way to restore peace to the world!”

Grace insisted.

“Ms. Linsor, let me be clear that the severing of the vital force and the destruction of the Dragon Guard are not necessarily bad things to me. In fact, it also presents an opportunity for the royal family.

“As for restoring peace to the world, honestly, I’m not ready for that. I have a lot of troubles to deal with, and I don’t have the energy to worry about anything else. So, please leave,” Dustin ordered.

He wasn’t a saint and couldn’t bear the responsibility of saving the world. He still had blood feuds to settle and mysteries to unravel. Saving the world had nothing to do with him.

At least, not for the time being.

“Logan, you will help me. This is fate. There’s a bond between us that cannot be untied,” Grace said.

“Ms. Linsor, I have no interest in your art of divination, and I don’t even know if it’s real or fake. I’m very tired, and the only thing I want to do now is rest,” Dustin said wearily. “Please, let me sleep. Alright?”

“I’m afraid you won’t be able to sleep tonight.” Grace shook her head. ” Someone important wants to see you, and it cannot be delayed.”

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?
