An Understated Dominance Chapter 1157 by Marina Vittori

Lou’s words were rude and harsh, and he showed no courtesy to Dustin. Dustin had intended to be reasonable and talk things out. But upon hearing that, his expression darkened.

No wonder all the staff at A’roma were so arrogant. It was because they had such an arrogant boss!

“Hey! Didn’t you hear what he said? Get lost!” Sue barked. “So this is how you run the place, by throwing customers out. Seems to me like you’re not interested in business,” Dustin said icily.

“It’s not that we’re not interested in business. We’re just not interested in business from you!”

Lou continued boldly, “I run the place, so what I say goes. I don’t like the looks of you, so all of you better get the hell out of here within one minute, or I’ll get things done my way.”

The crowd immediately made a big commotion when they heard that, urging Dustin to leave.

“Well, Rhys? The owner has made it clear that he wants you out of here. Why are you so shameless to stay?” Florence smirked as she folded her arms in front of her.

She can’t win him in an argument, nor can she win him by reasoning. So, the only way she could win this was to resort to abusing her powers and bullying him into leaving.

“Hah! Some people really know no shame. He’s clearly been kicked out, yet he lingers around like a stray dog,” Julie said, insulting him. “Exactly! Doesn’t he know his place? How dare he fight with us for the room? How ignorant!”

Victoria looked at Dustin in contempt. They now had Sir Mosey backing them up. Everyone else had to stand aside and make way for them.

“Oh, so you’re throwing your weight around now? Are you sure you want to do this?” Dustin looked at Lou coldly.

“Of course, I’m sure!” Lou lifted his chin. “You angered Mrs. Nicholson, and that’s no different from angering me. Since you’ve gotten on my nerves, I’m throwing you out!” Then, Lou gestured to his security guards.

A moment later, all the guards swarmed up and surrounded Dustin, looking at him fiercely. Some of them even pulled out sticks, ready to attack upon Lou’s orders.

“Rhys, you better know where you stand. You and us, we’re no longer of the same status.” Florence stuck out her chin and looked at him haughtily.

“Do you know what power is? Do you know the difference between us now? To put things simply, we can dine here without paying a single penny, and you need to pay us to dine here. Get it?”

“Just accept it. People like you deserve to grovel at our feet for life!” Julie sneered.

“Hey, rascal! You look very unhappy about things.”

A corner of Lou’s lips was raised as he continued relentlessly, “But so what? You’re on my turf. So I don’t care who the hell you are. You will do as I say. “And now, I say you leave, so you fucking leave!”

“You’re just the owner of a restaurant. I don’t understand why you think you can afford to be so arrogant.”

Dustin scoffed as he shook his head. ” Fine, it seems like you don’t want business. Then I guess you can shut your business down from today onward.

With that said, he pulled out his phone and made a call. “Get some of our men here and shut down A’roma.”

“Hey, you’re going to shut us down? Oh, I’m terrified. See, I’m even trembling!”

Lou sniggered sarcastically. “Hey, kiddo, do you know who you’re going up against? Do you know who’s backing me up?

“Please do your research before acting up around here. I’m afraid you’ll be scared silly once you know who is backing us up!”

“I don’t care who you are, and I don’t give a damn who got your backing. All I know is I’m terribly pissed today, so you will pay for your actions,” Dustin answered calmly.

Lou laughed. “You’re threatening me? Fine! I’ll be waiting right here. I’d like to see what you’re capable of!”

Lou folded his arms in front of his chest. He seemed to have absolutely no fear for Dustin.

He must have a certain level of background and connections to be able to run a high-end restaurant in the city center where rent was sky-high. And business was booming for him, too.

Not a while later, the sound of several cars zoomed past outside A’roma. Then, a large group of disciples from Kirin Gang stormed in.

The guards from A’roma’s expressions turned to that of fear when they saw them charging in. All of a sudden, they were no longer as arrogant as they were before anymore.

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?
