An Understated Dominance Chapter 1119 by Marina Vittori

Sheila was surprised by Dustin’s irrational behavior. She never imagined he would become violent over a minor disagreement. At first, she believed he was a good person, but his actions have left her bitter and skeptical.

“Ms. Murray, I’m joking. You have nothing to worry about. I’ll not use violence unless provoked,” he said calmly. Vivian retorted, “Hmph! You’re saying you’re only joking? If Sheila hadn’t intervened, things could have turned violent!”

Evan added, “Dustin, knowing martial arts doesn’t justify reckless behavior. The Murray residence is no place for such conduct!”

“If someone doesn’t annoy me, I don’t resort to violence. But if they do, I might. That’s my advice, and I’ll give you a break now,” Dustin said coldly.

“Sheila, this guy is out of control. You should consider kicking him out before he disrupts the celebration!” Vivian suggested, hoping Sheila would agree.

“Vivian is right, Sheila. One troublemaker can ruin the celebration. Today, we’re celebrating General Murray’s birthday, and many distinguished guests are here. If this guy makes trouble, it’ll hurt the Murray family’s reputation!” Evan added.

“Sheila, we need to think about what’s best for everyone. Kicking this guy out is the right thing to do,” the others agreed, trying to convince her.

“Dustin! You’re not welcome here. I have to ask you to leave!” Sheila said firmly. She agreed with her friends because she didn’t want him to ruin the birthday celebration.

“You want me to go?” Dustin was surprised. Then, he chuckled. “Ms. Murray, your friends can say whatever they want, and I’m just like them-a guest. Is it fair to ask me to leave?”

He always considered Sheila as a sister. Even if she misunderstood him, he was not upset. He believed in mutual respect, even if they couldn’t be close friends.

But now, he realized he had been wrong. Sheila seemed determined to stand by her decision, even if it meant turning against him. Dustin had helped her many times before, but now she was asking him to leave.

“I didn’t invite you, and you’re not one of our guests. I have the right to ask you to leave!” Sheila insisted stubbornly. “Ms. Murray, you didn’t invite me, but your grandfather did. If you want me to go, you should check with him,” Dustin calmly replied.


Sheila was irritated. She hadn’t expected him to be so bold and wouldn’t leave even when she told him to. And he even mentioned her grandfather to intimidate her.

“Ignore him, Sheila. He’s probably making up stories about knowing General Murray,” Vivian goaded her. Evan added, “Sheila, stop wasting your time talking to him. Get someone to escort him out!”

“Dustin! If you don’t leave now, I’ll have someone throw you out!” Sheila warned angrily.

“Sheila, show some respect!”

At that point, Cornelius couldn’t hold back any longer and snapped, “Mr. Dustin has bailed you out many times. If you don’t appreciate that, it’s fine. But is this how the Murrays show their gratitude? By mistreating someone

who has helped them.” “I” Sheila was speechless.

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?
