An Understated Dominance Chapter 1066 by Marina Vittori

At that moment, Gideon was unsettled. He could see that Scarlet and Dustin had known each other for a long time. Moreover, they were pretty close.

In fact, they were closer than he thought. After all, Scarlet was known for being ruthless and decisive on the battlefield. She had always been that way since she was 18.

She would always keep everyone at a distance, too. No one had seen her smile before, be it her family, friends, or subordinates. Right then, Scarlet was not just smiling. She was grinning.

It was as if she had become a completely different person. Her current behavior was the opposite of her usual cold and aloof self.

Gideon wondered if Scarlet had hit her head. Otherwise, why was she smiling?

He even considered the possibility that Dustin had cast a spell to enchant her. “Yup, I’ve sorted out the situation in Oakvale. We’ve killed several scapegoats as a warning. This should keep things quiet for a while,” Scarlet answered truthfully.

Dustin nodded with a smile. “That’s good to hear. Since you’ve just arrived in Millsburg, have you eaten?”

“No,” Scarlet replied while shaking her head.

“Let’s go eat then! We can chat while eating.”

“Okay!” Scarlet agreed.

As Gideon watched them leave, a whirlwind of emotions surged within him. Since when did Scarlet become such a gentle person?

“Georgia!” Unable to contain his curiosity, he grabbed Scarlet’s assistant general. Georgia frowned. “What is it?”

“Who’s that kid? Why is he so close to Lady Scarlet?” Gideon asked. “Why are you so nosy? Don’t ask questions you shouldn’t.” With that, Georgia rolled her eyes and left. Gideon was left standing awkwardly. He turned to another assistant general. “Bridget?”

However, Bridget was even more blunt. She clearly did not want to engage in a conversation with him. She just snorted and walked away.  Gideon gulped nervously. Instantly, he felt anxious.

He wasn’t sure if he had offended a prominent figure. Meanwhile, in the Grants’ mansion, Tyler’s trusted subordinate reported the situation to him.

“What? The entire Harmon family got arrested?” Tyler couldn’t hide his surprise after hearing that. “What happened? Isn’t today the day Trent ascended as the family head? Why were they arrested?”

“We’re not sure of the specific details. But I heard it was a direct order from the Scarlet Warrior,” his trusted subordinate reported with their head lowered. Tyler frowned. “Scarlet Spanner? Why is she here?”

In the whole of Dragonmarsh, Tyler feared few people. However, Scarlet happened to be one of them. He had to admit that she was better than him in various aspects.

“But this time, Scarlet traveled light. It doesn’t look like she’s on official duty. The Harmon family may have offended her,” Tyler’s subordinate said.

“A bunch of thrash! Of all the people to offend, they had to offend that woman. They’re truly idiots!” Tyler sneered. Then his subordinate asked cautiously, “Mr. Grant, shall we use our connections to save them?”

“There’s no need to offend her because of this foolish bunch. Let them fend for themselves,” Tyler answered coldly.

After all, Trent and the others were just his pawns. If they did not serve their purpose, it would be best to cut them off.

“Mr. Grant, how will we get the treasure map without the puppets?” Tyler’s subordinate asked again.

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?
