An Understated Dominance Chapter 1052 by Marina Vittori

Dylan was stunned and muttered, “Again?” He was worried about Trent’s impulsive decisions since the previous shots had missed Dustin completely.

Jacob urged. “Trent, you’ve got to stay calm! Dyl’s life is on the line here!” He wanted to prevent Trent from losing his temper and accidentally shooting Dylan.

“I’m concerned about Dyl’s safety too. But have you considered our family’s reputation if we let this kid escape?” Trent argued.

“This kid isn’t a pushover. We should consider bringing in the aces,” Jacob whispered.

“Aces? Where can we find them on such short notice? I say we take him down now.” Trent insisted.

Then, Jacob proposed a different approach. “But before we resort to that, let me try talking to him first. It’s best if we can resolve this without violence.”

Trent took a deep breath and yielded. “You’ve got three minutes.”



Jacob nodded and turned to Dustin. “Listen, you need to stop right now. There’s no way you’ll make it out of here alive today. But if you release my son, I can assure your safety.”

“Rhys! You better let me go right now, or there will be consequences!” Dylan warned. Even though Dustin had beaten him earlier, Dylan wasn’t about to give up.

“Everyone must take responsibility for their actions. You’ve made a serious mistake. So today,

you’ll face the consequences,” Dustin stated firmly.

“Rhys, don’t think you can scare me. You’re cornered now, with no way out. If you lay a finger on me, you’ll regret it!” Dylan sneered.

Dustin had faced many tough situations before, so he stayed calm even when surrounded by the

Harmon family guards.

“Regret it?” Dustin scoffed and snapped Dylan’s arm

“Ah!” Dylan screamed in pain as Dustin broke both his arms.

“What do you think of my Bone–Crushing Grip technique?” Dustin asked indifferently.

“You scumbag! How dare you lay a hand on me? I’ll make sure you pay for this!” Dylan shouted in


But Dustin said nothing and kicked Dylan.

With a “crack“, Dylan’s kneecap shattered, causing him to collapse and scream again.

Seeing his son’s injuries, Jacob shouted, “You monster! You’ll pay for what you’ve done to my son!”

“Finish him!” Trent wasted no time and ordered his guards to attack Dustin.

At that moment, a large group of gangsters burst through the main gate of the Harmon family

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?
