An Understated Dominance Chapter 869 by Marina Vittori

“I was just saying. You don’t have to open it if you don’t want to.” Dustin shrugged.

Although the Jade Maiden Scripture was impressive, it was only suitable for women. It had no use for him. He was only interested to see it because of his curiosity.

“Hmph! Smart move!” Nikki breathed a sigh of relief.

It was embarrassing to admit, but it was thanks to Dustin that she could get her hands on the Jade Maiden Scripture.

When they returned, she would put in a good word for him with Madam Edith and ensure he was rewarded accordingly.

Twenty minutes later, the car stopped at the entrance of Zephyr Lodge. They had just exited the car when Brittany and a few disciples rushed up to them excitedly.

“Nikki, I heard you found the Jade Maiden Scripture. Where is it? Let me see!” Brittany was unable to hide the excitement on her face.

“It’s right here, have a look.” Nikki passed the box containing the Jade Maiden Scripture to her.

Brittany’s excitement grew as she studied the scripture. “It is the Jade Maiden Scripture. This is great!”

“Congratulations, Brittany! You found our treasure!” The disciples behind her praised her.

“All of you had a hand in finding the scripture!” Brittany said as she flipped through the scripture. She was thrilled.

“Brittany, we could only get our hands on it thanks to Dustin.” Nikki attempted to give Dustin. credit.

“Hmm?” Brittany swept a glance at Dustin.

She looked at Dustin arrogantly. “Hmph! You finally caved in? Have you finally realized you should be pleasing me? You men are always saying one thing but meaning another!”

“Let me make it clear. My actions have nothing to do with you,” Dustin clarified immediately.

“You’re still being stubborn? Why would you be so enthusiastic about finding the scripture if you aren’t in love with me? I’ve seen through you, so stop pretending!” Brittany raised her head, looking proud.

Dustin was rendered speechless. He wondered where her confidence came from. She could

twist any situation to make it all about herself and speak as if it was a fact.

“Fine, given that you went through all that trouble for me, I won’t hold your past mistake against you anymore. Starting today, I’ll allow you to be my fanboy,” Brittany said in a


naughty tone.

“Hey, what are you doing just standing there? Hurry up and thank her!”

“You’re lucky that you’re getting a chance to please Brittany. You must cherish it!” A few disciples crossed their arms, looking like Dustin had struck gold.

Dustin rolled his eyes. He couldn’t bother wasting his time with a bunch of lunatics.

“What’s going on here?” Just then, Edith strolled in with an old woman. Their proud demeanor made it seem like royalty was arriving.

“Madam Edith, you arrived just in time. We have good news. We found the Jade Maiden Scripture!” Brittany excitedly passed the sheepskin scripture to her.

“You found it?” Madam Edith was astounded. She took a closer look, instantly, her expression turned to joy.

“It is the Jade Maiden Scripture. This is great! Who found it? I’ll have to reward them handsomely!”

“I found it, Madam Edith! I went through a lot of trouble to obtain this precious treasure. I didn’t disappoint, did 1?” Brittany stepped up. She didn’t hesitate to take all the credit. Nikki was stunned by her words.

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?
