An Understated Dominance Chapter 1049 by Marina Vittori


“This is outrageous!” “You have the nerve to mess with the Harmon family. You must have a death wish!” The startled quests shouted and protested. The commotion drew the guards’ attention, who surrounded the area.

Dylan sneered at Dustin. “You’ve got some nerve attacking me. If your bodyguard was here, you might have a chance. But going up against me alone is just asking for death!”

Despite his previous loss to Cornelius, Dylan remained confident in defeating Dustin. Among his peers, he believed only Tyler could pose a challenge.

“Kid, today marks my ascent as the Patriarch. I don’t want bloodshed, so surrender now,” Trent shouted at Dustin.

He knew Dustin’s skills and gangs, but it was nothing compared to the Harmon family’s forces. Besides, he had the support of the Grants.

“Dylan’s life ends today, and anyone who intervenes will die too!” Dustin proclaimed.

“How dare you!”

Trent barked at his guards, “Grab him!”

“Wait!” Dylan stepped forward.

“Uncle Trent, allow me to handle him myself.”

“Yes, Trent. Let them settle their score,” Jacob chimed in.

Trent understood that ganging up on Dustin would make them look like bullies. So, he agreed to at

one-on-one duel, which would attract less attention even if Dustin died

“Alright, he’s all yours,” Trent said, giving Dylan a reassuring pat on the shoulder.

“Uncle Trent, just watch as I defeat him”

Then Dylan taunted Dustin, “Rhys, do you have the courage for a life-or-death fight?”

“What’s there to fear? You’re going to die anyway,” Dustin retorted

“Perfect! Everyone heard it, night? He agreed to a life-or-death duel If he dies, I’m not taking responsibility Dylan proclaimed for everyone to hear

“Is he crazy? Challenging Dylan one-on-one!”

“Dylan’s a divine master and a high-ranking commander in the Dark Panther Cavalry. He’s a master of deadly techniques. This kid won’t last three seconds.” (2)

“He’s getting what he asked for by messing with the Harmon family!”

The crowd whispered among themselves about Dustin as if he were already doomed.

“Ha! A poor nobody trying to take on a genius like Dylan? Dream on!” Leah scoffed.

“He’s risking his life just to show off. What a fool!” Quinton showed his disdain.

“Ignorant fool!” Livia shook her head.

To them, Dustin’s actions were suicidal.

Dylan taunted, “Rhys, come at me, and let’s see what you’re made of.”

Dustin stepped forward and threw an ordinary punch.

“Is that it?” Dylan chuckled and raised his finger to stop his punch, eager to win and earn the crowd’s praise.

When Dylan’s finger met Dustin’s fist, a sickening crunch of Dylan’s finger bones breaking was

heard. Then, his arm snapped, and his body slammed into the wall.

He was knocked unconscious, with blood flowing from his mouth and nose.

The room fell quiet.

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?
