An Understated Dominance Chapter 1917 by Marina Vittori

In the inn, Dustin changed into clean clothes and sneezed. “I wonder who’s talking about me,” he mumbled, rubbing his nose.

Then, he left the room and headed to the dining hall. The dining area, originally a school cafeteria, was quite spacious. It covered around 600 to 700 square feet and easily fit over a hundred people.

“Over here.”

Grace waved at him as he walked in. He made his way over, noticing a table adorned with more than a dozen mouth -watering dishes.

“Our chef whipped up these dishes, so feel free to dig. They’re not just tasty but also safe,” she assured.

“You’re playing it safe and all.” Dustin chuckled, sliding into a seat before diving into the food without a second thought.

“It’s always a good call to be careful when you’re out and about, especially in the outskirts of the Deadlands. You never know what kind of dangers lurk around, and a single misstep could be fatal,” Grace explained as she enjoyed her meal.

Suddenly, a group of young men and women dressed in green, wielding swords, barged into the inn. They exuded a powerful presence and had sharp gazes. It seemed they were disciples of the martial world’s sect.

A slender man in his 30s was at the forefront. He had a sharply curved nose and fierce expression.

“Bran, doesn’t this place look a bit rundown? I mean, there’s so much filth around. How can we even eat here?” a girl in a ponytail remarked, clearly not impressed.

“We don’t really have a choice. The circumstances are special this time around. We’ll just have to make the best of it,” the man with the sharply curved nose, Bran, gently explained.

“Fine. Since we’re already here, let’s just grab a bite. I’m starving.”

Then, she spotted a tidy table and said, “Hey! Waiter! Serve me your finest dishes!”

“Sure thing!” the waiter replied with a bright smile, signaling the chef to whip up some exquisite dishes for them.

After taking a bite, she promptly spat it out. “Ugh! What’s this? Why does it taste so terrible? It’s gross!”

“This is outrageous!” Bran slammed the table and shouted, “Are you trying to mess with us on purpose with this awful food?”

“Do you even know who we are? You’ve got some nerve to treat us like this! Keep it up, and we might have to bring this whole place down!” The ponytailed girl stood up, giving the waiter a warning with a menacing tone.

A few other disciples chimed in, all sporting fierce expressions.

“Dear guests, we sincerely apologize. These are the finest ingredients our small establishment has to offer. If anything falls short, we appreciate your understanding,” the waiter apologized, looking a bit nervous.

“You’re lying!” she exclaimed, rising from her seat.

She pointed at Dustin and Grace, raising her voice. “Why does their food look tastier than ours? You’re clearly looking down on us!”

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?
