An Understated Dominance Chapter 957 by Marina Vittori

Taken aback, Nikki forced a smile. “Madam Edith, I’ve got good eyes. I might be useful.”  “No thanks!” Edith frowned in annoyance.

“Having Brittany around will be enough. Leave.”

“But-” Nikki stopped talking when Edith glared at her.

The older woman snapped, “What? Are you going to defy me?”

“Of course not.” Nikki lowered her head and bit her lower lip.

“Get out!” Nikki was irritated.

“I’ll take my leave.” With a nod, Nikki left reluctantly.

Her gaze showed her discontent and resentfulness.

She couldn’t believe that despite all her contributions, Edith still didn’t trust her. It was as if Nikki was an outsider.

Yet, without her, Edith wouldn’t have obtained the scripture and discovered its secrets.

Nikki couldn’t understand why Edith would not acknowledge her hard work and favor her.

Worst, instead of receiving Edith’s thanks, all Nikki got was Edith’s anger thrown at her.

Nikki gritted her teeth and clenched her fists, displeased.

Once she left the villa, she grabbed her phone and dialed a number.

In a low voice, she said, “Dustin, I found one of the Sisterhood’s secrets. I’m sure it’ll be useful to


“Let’s meet at Auspicious Restaurant at 8:00 pm tonight if you’re interested.”

Nikki sat alone in a private dining room, feeling uneasy. She wasn’t sure if Dustin would show up.

but she had to take a chance.

After everything that happened, she realized it was better to take matters into her own hands instead of relying on others.

Since Edith didn’t trust her, Nikki no longer needed to prove her loyalty. Instead, she would use everything in her reach to bring her power.

Just then, the door opened, and Dustin walked in. None of his subordinates accompanied him.

“You’re here.” Nikki instantly lit up and stood up.

She was happy and relieved he was here since it meant she still had a chance.

“What’s the secret?” Dustin asked coldly.

“Give me Jade Maiden Scripture first, and I’ll tell you,” Nikki bargained.

Without another word, Dustin took out a manuscript and tossed it onto the table. He had

anticipated Nikki’s intentions, so he prepared the scripture beforehand.

“I like how direct you are!” Nikki examined the scripture carefully.

Certain that nothing was wrong, she answered his question. “Madam Edith found a map within.

the incomplete scripture.

“It’s a map that leads to Iris Meskill’s tomb, where countless treasures are hidden!”

“Iris Meskill?” Dustin stiffened, losing his calm demeanor.

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?
