An Understated Dominance Chapter 1728 by Marina Vittori

“Now, imagine yourself lying on the serene sea, gently swaying with the waves. A soft breeze whispers by your ears, dancing through your hair.”

It was as if Grace’s soothing voice was imbued with magic. After only a few words, Dustin drifted into a deep slumber, snoring loudly.

“That was fast.” Grace chuckled.

She scooted over to Dustin and supported his head with her shoulder. At the same time, she held his chin with one hand to prevent him from suddenly falling.

Their vehicle continued to move at a steady speed. However, instead of heading to Dustin’s villa, it traveled to an unfamiliar place.

Dustin had a very long dream. In his dream, he stood alone on the battlefield as the corpses by his feet piled up like mountains, and the land was stained a bloody red.

There was not a living soul in sight, leaving only a desolate scene. It was as if he was the only person left in the world. Everyone was lying in the pool of blood, including his family, his friends, and his enemies alike. 2

He didn’t know what had happened, nor the reasons that led to such a bloody scene. The only emotions he felt were fear and loneliness. Dustin wondered if this was war. No matter how hard they fought, there were no victors, only death.

“Logan … Logan ….” Dustin wasn’t sure how much time had passed when he heard a familiar voice. Suddenly, he broke free from his nightmare and jolted upright in bed.

Unbeknownst to him, he was drenched in sweat and panted heavily.

“Grace?” When Dustin’s gaze came into focus, the first sight that greeted him was a woman dressed in white with a veil over her face.

“Did you have a nightmare? I heard you uttering commands to attack and kill,” Grace asked gently.

“I did have a strange dream.” Dustin sighed, feeling a chill down his spine. Fortunately, it was just a dream. He couldn’t have imagined the consequences had it been real.

“Dreams are usually an inverse of reality. Don’t worry.” Grace chuckled. Dustin glanced outside the window and realized that it was already noon. Curious, he asked, “By the way, how long have I been asleep?”

“Two days and one night,” Grace replied.

“What?” Dustin was shocked. “I was gone for that long? Why didn’t you wake me up?”

“You were sleeping so soundly that it didn’t feel right to wake you up. Besides, your snoring was so loud that I wouldn’t be able to wake you up even if I tried,” Grace teased.

“Wait a minute… This isn’t my place. Where am I?” Dustin glanced around, noticing the unfamiliar and feminine decor in the room. Even the bed had a fragrant smell.

“This is my home.”

Grace explained, “There had been an unexpected incident. For your safety, I didn’t send you home and could only have you stay here temporarily.”

“An incident? What happened?” Dustin narrowed his eyes.

Grace dropped a bombshell, “Last night, someone tried to kill 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?
