An Understated Dominance Chapter 1146 by Marina Vittori

An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1146

Christopher had chosen his words intentionally. On one hand, he genuinely admired Dustin. He saw him as a young talent who excelled in both the martial and literary arts and had a promising future.

Not only that, he also had an impeccable character and a pleasant personality. A young prodigy like him was a rare find in the whole of Dragonmarsh. If only Dustin could become his grandson -in-law, the Murray family would be in good hands.

On the other hand, he had Sheila’s well -being in mind. She was a kind- hearted and rather innocent girl who easily fell for deceit. She needed a strong protector by her side, and Dustin was the best choice.

They were the perfect match. Sheila stood quietly behind the both of them. Her face was tinged with a blush, reflecting both shyness and anticipation. She waited for Dustin’s response, hoping to hear the answer she desired.

“Thank you for thinking highly of me, General Murray. But an ordinary citizen like me is not worthy of Ms. Murray.” Dustin declined while shaking his head.

“Kid, I know who you are, so it’s pointless to put it that way. I just want to know if you have any feelings for Sheila,” Christopher asked again.

“General Murray, we’re just friends. That’s all,” Dustin replied decisively. Just friends? Christopher frowned slightly.

Why did it sound awkward? Didn’t Dustin say he saw her as a sister? Why did he make it sound so distant now? Sheila’s face stiffened when she heard that. She was disappointed.

“Kid, why don’t you reconsider?” Christopher was reluctant to admit defeat. He put down his pride for the sake of his granddaughter’s happiness.

“General Murray, some things are best not forced.” Dustin shook his head again, his gaze resolute. Christopher sighed. “Alright, alright. I won’t interfere in the affairs of you young people,” he conceded.

“General Murray, I believe I’m not needed here any longer. I will take my leave now.” Dustin respectfully bid his farewell and prepared to depart.

“Dustin…” Sheila couldn’t help but call out to him.

“Hmm?” Dustin turned around, confused.

He asked, “What is it, Ms. Murray?” “Dustin, I’m really sorry for the misunderstanding. Please accept my sincere apology.” Looking down, Sheila appeared remorseful.

“Ms. Murray, you did nothing wrong. I’ve never put the blame on you. So you don’t have to apologize.” Dustin shook his head.

It didn’t matter who was right or wrong; it was only a matter of trust. Sheila had made her decision, and he had no reason to feel dissatisfied.

“Will we see each other again?” Sheila gripped the corner of her shirt, feeling nervous and hopeful.

Dustin appeared polite and courteous. However, for some reason, he felt distant. He used to call her Sheila, but he now addressed her as Ms. Murray. It showed just how much distance had grown between them.

“We will meet again if fate allows it. Goodbye.” With a faint smile, Dustin walked straight out of the Murray residence.

“Dustin… .” Sheila felt empty as she watched him leave. It was as if something important was slowly slipping away.

“What happened between you two?” Christopher’s curiosity got the better of him.

“I…” Sheila hesitated. Finally, she decided to briefly recount the situation. Christopher was exasperated after hearing her story. “How can you be so foolish? Can’t you distinguish right from wrong?

“You believed the slander those Scoundrels spewed but confronted the one who helped you? Y-You … You’re going to drive me mad!”

“Grandpa, I know I was wrong. Can you help me?” Sheila asked weakly.

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?
