An Understated Dominance Chapter 400 by Marina Vittori

Dustin felt the softness in his arms and the familiar scent tingling his nose. He broke into a smile. He could tell from her uncontrolled crying that she cared greatly about him.

“Okay, now. Stop crying. Your tears are wetting this new shirt I bought two days ago.” After some hugging, Dustin finally opened his mouth.

“What’s the big deal? I’ll just pay for the shirt.” She let go of him and didn’t forget to give him a pinch in the waist, sending him grimacing in pain. “And what was that just now? Why didn’t you escape sooner?” she confronted him.

“He’s a ticking time bomb–no pun intended. Of course, I had to subdue him before I left,” he answered matter–of–factly.

“I know you’re great at fighting, but you have to care about your safety. He had bombs strapped on his body. What if he got you killed in an explosion?” she protested.

He grinned and replied, “But I’m all well.”

“It’s all because of your dumb luck. You’d better not push your luck the next time!” she warned him.

“Okay. I’ll act like a loser and think of my safety first.” He nodded furiously.

“That’s more like it!” She nodded with satisfaction. It was all great being a glorious hero, but that was also how people got themselves killed in a slip–up. She’d rather Dustin stay a loser.

“Dustin Rhys, do you have nine lives? Why weren’t you dead from that huge explosion?” James and Florence cautiously made their way up to the rubble.

“I need to thank my lucky stars for surviving the bombing,” Dustin dropped a casual remark.

“Oh my god! My villa!” Florence suddenly started howling at the sight of the rubble when she realized the extent of the damage done. “Oh, Edwin Hummer, you asshole! I’m fine with him wanting to die. How could he ruin my villa while he was at it? This is unforgivable!”

“Mom, this all happened because of Dustin. I think you can ask him for compensation.” James was thinking fast and came up with an idea.

“That’s right!” Florence nodded and grabbed Dustin by the sleeve. “Dustin Rhys, it’s all your fault! You need to pay up for ruining my villa!”

“Mom, a villa is nothing compared to a life. Dustin has saved us. Do you think it’s fair to ask him. for compensation?” Dahlia frowned at her mother.

“Why is that unfair? He got us into this trouble. Don’t you ever think of leaving if you don’t pay up!” Florence started acting like a Karen.

“Alright, then. How much?” Dustin did not want to quarrel with her.

“Eight million… No! Ten!” Florence was thinking on her feet and inflated the price at the very last


“Mom! We bought this villa for five million. Aren’t you scamming Dustin by asking for ten million? “Dahlia grew increasingly annoyed.

“That was in the past. Don’t you know that housing prices are climbing like crazy? I won’t let this slide if I don’t receive the ten million!” Florence put her hands on her waist.

“You-” Dahlia was about to go off, but Dustin pressed a hand against hers.

“Whatever. Ten million it is. I’ll transfer it to your account tomorrow.”

“Hmph! That’s more like it!” She gleefully let go of him.

“Hey! Are you mad? Where are you going to get the money when you’re running a tiny medical center?” Dahlia glared at him.

“You shouldn’t underestimate me. I provided the Harmon family with my prescription, and I will receive 50% of the sales of the pills they manufactured. Ten million is nothing.” Dustin appeared unbothered. Be it the profits from Hillview Hotel or his 50% ownership of the proceeds from Immortunol, he was guaranteed a huge amount of bonus monthly, which could add up to at least tens of millions per month.

“At the end of the day, you’re still Natasha Harmon’s kept man.” Dahlia was dripping with jealousy.

“Look at the way you put it. I am only her business partner. How could you call me a kept man?” Dustin objected.

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?
