An Understated Dominance Chapter 1704 by Marina Vittori

“Someone important? Who?” Dustin asked.

“The King.” Grace dropped a bombshell.

“Huh?” Dustin frowned slightly, feeling puzzled. Wasn’t the King ill and bedridden? Why would he want to meet him?

Dustin wondered if it concerned the Dragon Guard or perhaps the vital force. Would this journey be dangerous? Would there be an ambush waiting for him in Aylka?

“You can stop the blind guessing,”

Grace said calmly, seemingly seeing through his concerns.

“If the King wanted to harm you, he wouldn’t have sent me here to invite you. He would have just sent the elite fighters from the palace or even the Imperial Guards. Given your current condition, would you even be able to fight them off?”

Dustin breathed a silent sigh of relief after hearing her. Admittedly, Grace had made a valid point. If the King truly intended to harm him, he wouldn’t have sent just one woman.

Considering the current circumstances, only a fool would aggravate the problem. After all, with the Dragon Guard eliminated, the highest priority for the royal family now was to consolidate power.

If anything were to happen to Dustin in Oakvale, it would undoubtedly escalate tensions. If the West Lucozian army invaded, it would be a fatal blow to the royal family.

However, since that was all in principle, he still had to make sure.

“Ms. Linsor, may I know why the King wishes to see me at this late hour?”

Dustin probed for information.

“I’m not sure either, but it’s important.

“Grace kept her response vague.

“If you won’t talk, I won’t be going.” Dustin became disinterested when he failed to fish for information.


Grace was slightly frustrated, but for the greater good, she responded patiently, “I’m not sure about the details, but it probably has to do with important matters of the nation. For example, choosing the next successor or strengthening the borders.”

“I see.” Dustin nodded, seemingly deep in thought.

“Can you come with me now?” Grace asked.

“Seems like there’s no way to avoid it. But before we leave, I need to write a letter. Please hold on,” Dustin replied before finding a piece of paper to pen the letter.

Calling for Maximus, he instructed him, “Maximus, keep this letter safe for me. Find another place to stay tonight. If you don’t hear from me by daybreak, head to West Lucozia immediately with this letter.”

“Understood!” Maximus nodded and swiftly departed.

“You’re pretty cautious, Logan.” Grace frowned slightly but quickly schooled her expression.

She was aware that Dustin was just taking precautions against a potential ambush by the royal family, with the letter serving as evidence.

“What can I say? It’s better to be safe than sorry.” Dustin said impassively.

“Since you’ve done everything you need to do, can we leave now, Your Highness?” Grace said somewhat resentfully.

“Let’s go.” Dustin nodded.

Led by Grace, they headed straight for Aylka.

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?
