An Understated Dominance Chapter 1117 by Marina Vittori

Edgar nodded and said, “I’ll leave this to you. Find some skilled experts to deal with Dustin for me.” He knew money could solve his problem without him having to get his hands dirty.

“No problem,” Caden replied. A thought ran in his mind, “This is Edgar’s order, so any blame would fall on him if things went wrong.”

The next morning, there was a lot of activity in front of the Murray residence. Guests were coming and going to celebrate Christopher’s birthday. He had retired from the public eye but was still highly respected.

Christopher had always kept to himself. He invited only a small group of friends and relatives to his birthday party. However, some unexpected guests had shown up.

At this moment, a black sedan pulled up in front of the mansion. The door opened, and Dustin stepped out, holding a gift. He was accompanied by Cornelius.

“Sir Rhys, you attacked Jayden last night, and now you’re here for General Murray’s birthday. Aren’t you afraid the Murray family will turn against you?” Cornelius asked. He could see that the security inside the residence was tight. It would be hard to leave once they went in.

“General Murray is reasonable. Right and wrong should be clear to him,” Dustin replied.

“Let’s hope so,” Cornelius said, looking grim. Still, he knew they had to be cautious. After all, Christopher might favor his grandson and disregard justice.

“Let’s go in,” Dustin said, handing over the invitation and walking into the Murray residence. The Murray residence had only a few guests, but they were all VIPS- government officials, wealthy city elites, and regional leaders.

It seemed like a regular banquet, but it was a gathering of the elite in the Balerno.

“Hmm?” As Dustin entered the banquet hall, he saw familiar faces- Sheila, Vivian, and Evan, among others. They had been chatting and laughing, but upon seeing Dustin, they froze.

“You… why are you here?” Sheila was stunned. Since their fallout last night, she had been upset and couldn’t sleep. Seeing Dustin now left her speechless.

“Rhys! You’ve got some nerve coming here!” Vivian was angry.

“Once you enter this gate, there’s no turning back. There’s no escape from hell! Today, no one can save you!” Evan grinned maliciously.

They were at the famous Murray residence, a heavily guarded place. Dustin had willingly walked into danger, like a moth drawn to a flame.

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?
