An Understated Dominance Chapter 1042 by Marina Vittori

That night, Dustin and Natasha sat by Haley’s bedside in one of the wards of East Swinton Hospital. Their hearts ached for her as they watched her sleep.

She had just gone through an operation. All her injuries had been treated and bandaged. Dustin had even performed acupuncture on her to ensure that her blood circulation was fine.

Though she was no longer in danger, the shock of the accident was still traumatizing for a five- year–old child. “Don’t worry, Haley will be fine.” Dustin held Natasha’s hand to comfort her.

“Those beasts! They didn’t even spare the child!” Natasha hissed through clenched teeth, furious. “I will get to the bottom of this. I will not let whoever is behind this off!” Dustin was dead serious.

Whatever he did should not implicate those around him. They had crossed a line now that both Natasha and Haley were harmed.

He would not go easy on wicked people.

“Natasha!” Hector and Ruth rushed in.

They were distraught when they saw the bandage around Natasha’s head. They hurried to ask if she was alright.

“Dad, I’m fine. Just some minor scratches.” Natasha smiled, trying to ease their worries.

“Oh, that’s good. It’s great to hear that you’re fine.” Hector heaved a sigh of relief.

“I was shocked when I heard you guys had been in an accident. Thank god you’re all safe.”

“How did you guys get into an accident? You guys weren’t drunk driving, were you?” Ruth asked.

“It wasn’t us. Someone did it on purpose.” Natasha did not hide the truth from them and recounted

everything that happened.

Both Hector and Ruth frowned.

“Who dares do something like this? How could they do something like this in broad daylight? What’s the point of the law?”

“We’re looking into it. I’m sure we’ll have our answers by tomorrow,” Dustin answered.

“No matter who’s behind it, they must pay for this!” Hector’s expression was dark.

It was one thing for others to scheme and plot against them. But now that his daughter’s life was threatened, he would not sit by and watch.

“Well, I see you’re all here!” Suddenly, a well–dressed and high–spirited man strode in with his

head held high.

There were two adjutants in military uniforms following behind him.

“Dylan? Why are you here?” Natasha’s brows furrowed.

“I heard that you were involved in a traffic accident. I’m your cousin; it only makes sense that I come and visit you.”

Dylan looked her up and down before he smiled. “But I think you’re fine. You don’t look terribly injured. Congratulations!”

“Cut the nonsense. What are you here for?” Natasha did not wish to waste time conversing with


After Hector had been forced from his position as head of the Harmon family, their relationship had gone sour.

“I came here to check if you’re fine and to chat with Uncle Hector.” Dylan turned to look at Hector.

“May I speak to you in private, Uncle Hector?”

“There’s no need for that. If there’s anything you need to say, you can say it here,” Hector said.

“Alright then, since we’re all family, I won’t beat around the bush anymore.” Dylan sat down on a chair, making himself comfortable.

Then, he smiled. “Uncle Hector, the Harmon ancestors have left us a treasure map, haven’t they?

“According to the rules, the head of the family should keep the map. Now that you’re no longer head of the family, don’t you think it’s time you return the map?”

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?
