An Understated Dominance Chapter 1140 by Marina Vittori

“What… What did you say?” Sheila was dumbfounded and in disbelief. “You kidnapped me? You guys… have been lying to me?”

“That’s right. We did lie to you,” Diego admitted to it plainly. “However, you can only blame yourself for being a fool. You can’t tell right from wrong at all. All it took was a few words to convince you. You’re the biggest idiot ever!”

“So… I misunderstood Dustin? I was the one who hurt him without knowing the truth?” Sheila was trembling as tears streamed down her face. A wave of regret washed over her. She never expected the truth to turn out that way.

She thought her cousin wouldn’t deceive her. She thought her friends would never lie to her. She thought Dustin had really been scheming against her.

But Deigo’s words had made her realize that everything she had known was a lie. Jayden had deceived her, her good friends had lied to her, and Dustin had been the only one helping and saving her.

Yet, she wasn’t only ungrateful; she even kicked him out of the house. Because of a few ridiculous remarks, she had deeply hurt the person who truly cared about her. What had she done? Why was she such a fool?

“Why? Why did you lie to me?” Sheila turned her attention to Evan, Vivian, and the rest of the group. She looked at them in doubt and confusion, unable to understand why her friends would lie to her.

When Evan’s and Vivian’s group met Sheila’s gaze, they lowered their heads in silence. They didn’t expect Diego to openly challenge the Murrays and expose them, either.

“Dustin, I’m sorry… I’m so sorry. I didn’t know things would turn out this way. Tears streamed uncontrollably down her face as Sheila gazed at Dustin among the crowd. She was overwhelmed with shame, regret, and sorrow. Still, she only had herself to blame. She had always despised people who repaid kindness with enmity, yet she had become one of them.

“Ms. Sheila, this is not the time to discuss these things. You should ensure your safety first.” Dustin shook his head slightly.

He didn’t harbor any resentment toward her, but they could never go back to being friends. Some things were just irreparable.

“Dustin…” Sheila wanted to explain, but she didn’t know where to start. She could sense a shift in Dustin’s gaze. It had grown distant and devoid of its former warmth.

“Enough with your chattering! Order your men to disarm! Otherwise, I’ll kill her!” Diego was getting impatient and pressed the knife deeper against her skin. Blood dripped continuously onto the ground as Sheila’s wound grew bigger. It was a horrifying sight.

“Stop it! I’m warning you not to try anything! If anything happens to my daughter, I will crush you to death!”

Caden roared in anger. “She’s in my hands now. I call the shots here. I’m going to count to three. Lay down your weapons, or I’ll cut off her arm first!” Diego threatened.

“Bourbon, you old dog! If your grandson hurts my granddaughter, even if I lose my life in the will make sure to kill him!” Christopher bellowed sternly. process, I “Old friend, you might want to take care of yourself first,” Antonio said mockingly.

Although Christopher was heavily injured, he didn’t dare underestimate him. That was why he was on constant alert to prevent him from attempting something.

“Three…” Deigo started the countdown.

“You son of a bitch! Don’t you dare!” Caden screamed in anger.

“Two…” Deigo didn’t seem afraid. “Caden, untie me from the Dragon Rope. I can save your daughter,” Dustin suddenly spoke.

He had been bound by the Dragon Rope and was rendered immobile. Unless he activated his secret technique, he couldn’t break free.

“You? What makes you think you can save her?” Caden frowned.

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?
