An Understated Dominance Chapter 863 by Marina Vittori

Nikki frowned, “What do you mean? You’re not selling it directly to us?”  “Recently, I’ve received many inquiries about the Jade Maiden Scripture. I was in a difficult position and was unable to make a decision.

“That was why I gathered everyone here to discuss the price collectively. It would be fairer this way,” Samuel explained.

“Fair?”  Dustin shook his head with a smile. “Mr. Franklin, you have a gift for words. You’re raising the price without reason yet making it sound sophisticated.”

Gathering all the buyers to discuss the price collectively was an obvious attempt to start a bidding war. That way, the price of the Jade Maiden Scripture would surge dramatically. It was a cunning strategy indeed.

“You flatter me, mister. I’m a humble merchant who hopes to earn a little extra profit.”

Samuel continued to smile even when his plan was exposed. He was good at maintaining his composure.

“Hmph! I hate people like you the most” Nikki looked at him contemptuously.

Why couldn’t he just name a price? Those who could afford it would pay, while those who couldn’t could just leave.

It would have been a much simpler approach. It was such a waste of time to resort to such


While they were enjoying their tea, the private room door swung open again. Then, a man with a golden mask entered with confident strides.

“It seems like another esteemed guest has arrived. Please, take a seat.” Samuel remained hospitable and stood up to welcome him.

The man in the golden mask nodded. He was about to sit down when he noticed Dustin.

Instantly, he took a few steps backward and exclaimed in shock, “You… What are you doing here?”

“Do I know you?” Dustin asked with doubt.

The man in the golden mask gulped and realized he had lost his cool.

He put on a calm front and said impassively, “My apologies. I mistook you for someone else just now.”

“The heck? You scared me!” Nikki was upset.

He looked like he had seen a ghost as soon as he walked in. Was that necessary?

The man in the mask took a deep breath and calmly sat. However, he occasionally glanced at Dustin with resentment.

As time passed, a few more buyers entered the room.

Men and women were present, dressed in luxury, and carried themselves well. They were far from ordinary individuals.

“Hey, most of the buyers have arrived. Can we start now?” Nikki was getting impatient after waiting for so long.

“Please be patient, miss. We are missing one last person.” With a gentle smile, Samuel refilled their tea, being courteous throughout.

“Who’s running late? Will we sit here all day if he doesn’t show up?” Nikki frowned.

“What are you rushing me for? I’m here!” Just then, a well–dressed young scion strolled in.

He was accompanied by a few arrogant women who were all dolled up.


young scion was none other than Julian Nicholson!

“Who the fuck was rushing me just now? If you don’t like waiting, then get the hell out!” Julian held his head high, looking arrogant.

“Hey! Do you want to get beaten up?” Nikki slammed the table angrily as she stood up, her expression icy.

“Are you trying to pick a fight with me? Who the fuck do you think you are? You’re asking for trouble!” Julian responded to Nikki in disdain.

“She’s asking for trouble, but what if I join in?” Dustin stood up slowly, asking with a sneer.

“What?” Julian took a closer look and was shocked.

“I–it’s you?”

“What? Are you surprised?” Dustin’s gaze was hostile.

“I haven’t had the chance to get revenge when you put me in jail. Now that we’ve crossed. paths today, don’t you think it’s time to settle the score?”

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?
