An Understated Dominance Chapter 1025 by Marina Vittori

He could only hold on to her tightly, feeling her warmth and savoring her scent. It was only at that moment that his anxious heart finally calmed down.

“I’m happy you’re alive,” Dustin whispered softly after a long pause. “Alright, stop hugging me. I’m starting to run out of breath,” Natasha smiled knowingly. She patted Dustin gently on the back.

Although she enjoyed the moment, he was hugging her a bit too tightly.

“Ahem … I’m sorry, I was out of line.” Dustin snapped back to reality and released her immediately.

He had let his emotions take over earlier. He didn’t even realize what he had done

“I’m happy you did that. At least it shows that you care about me,” Natasha smiled sweetly. She

was happy.

They had gone through life and death together. It was an experience that placed her way beyond

what he had with Dahlia.

So what if they’d been married before? They’d even risked their lives for each other!


“Dear, rest up. I’ll go check if your medicine is ready.”

Natasha tiptoed to give Dustin a kiss on the cheek before turning to leave.

A gentle smile formed on Dustin’s lips as he watched her leave. He felt the same sense of


Finally, they had overcome this crisis!

“Mr. Adler.” Once he regained his composure, Dustin summoned Cornelius. The man had been

stationed at the door.

He asked, “Did anything happen during these past few days?

Natasha and Dustin had been unconscious for three days each, so a week had passed.

“Sir Rhys, Millsburg has been relatively peaceful lately. Nothing much has happened,” Cornelius


Then, he changed the topic abruptly, “Oh, but we should keep a watchful eye on the Harmon


“Ever since Trent took over, he and his daughter have kicked out some outstanding members and

elders from the family. The current situation within the Harmons is rather delicate.

“Trent seems to be getting rid of dissenters. He kicked out anyone who didn’t obey his commands. Such foolish actions will only lead to his destruction.” Dustin shook his head.

The Harmons may be powerful, but it wouldn’t last, with Trent acting the way he was.

“Sir Rhys, I believe the Harmon family is like a ticking time bomb.”

Cornelius continued, “You instructed me to have people protect Mr. Hector before.

“In just a few days, he has faced three kidnapping attempts and two assassination plots. Luckily, we managed to thwart them all.”

“What?” Dustin frowned.

“Were they all carried out by the Harmons?

“The assassins were contracted. But there’s no doubt Trent and his daughter are involved in it,”

Cornelius said. He sounded certain.

“It seems like their true colors are finally about to be exposed.”

Dustin stroked his chin. He was deep in thought when he said, “Let’s do this. Continue to keep an

eye on them.

“If you notice any movements from Trent’s side, let me know right away. I’m going to find an

opportunity to deal with all of them once and for all.”

“Yes, sir.” Cornelius nodded.

“Oh, by the way, has there been any activity on Ronald’s and the martial arts alliance’s side

recently?” Dustin suddenly asked.

“Since Ronald returned from the Black Forest, he immediately went into seclusion. He refused to

meet anyone.

“The deputy leader is now managing the martial arts alliance entirely,” Cornelius replied.

“He’s in seclusion?” Dustin snorted coldly.

“He intends to use the Celestial Pearl to break through to the ultimate grandmaster realm.

Unfortunately for him, I won’t allow it.”

“Sir Rhys, what do you plan on doing?” Cornelius asked cautiously.

“I’m going to tend to my injuries first. After I’ve recovered, I’m going to challenge him!” Dustin

declared, making a shocking announcement.

“What? You’re going to challenge the leader of the martial arts alliance?”

Cornelius‘ eyes nearly popped out of their sockets. “Sir Rhys! Are you joking? Ronald is the most

“Won’t you end up dead by challenging someone so powerful?”

“We still don’t know who will be dying.” Dustin narrowed his eyes. He exuded a murderous gaze.

“We’ll have to battle it out sooner or later. There was no winner during our battle back in the Black Forest. We’ll have to settle the score at the alliance headquarters.

“If he wants to reach the level of an ultimate grandmaster, he’ll have to go through me first!”

Unless Ronald died, Dustin would never be able to make it up to Mr. Robinson.

Someone hypocritical like Ronald couldn’t continue to be the martial arts alliance leader. If so, then the martial world is truly finished.

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?
