An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1221

At the break of dawn, in a luxurious mansion somewhere. Natasha, who was sleeping, suddenly opened her eyes when she heard something moving.

She got up, walked to the window, and opened a slit between the curtains. Under the hazy moonlight, she was shocked to see the bodyguards on night duty lying on the ground.

“Hmm?” Natasha furrowed her brow. She quickly took out a pistol from a drawer in her headboard. Opening the door gently, she carefully observed her surroundings before going into the room next door.

“Ruth…” Natasha patted her sister, who was still asleep. When Ruth woke up, Natasha covered her mouth and signaled her to keep quiet. “Don’t make any noise. There’s an intruder.”


Ruth rubbed her sleepy eyes and mumbled, “Natasha, are you dreaming? Our house is surrounded by exceptionally skilled bodyguards day and night. Who would risk their lives?”

“They have been defeated. It’s very dangerous now. Come with me now!” Natasha said with a serious expression.

“What?” Ruth became alert when she heard that. “Natasha, who’s coming for us? Should we call Dustin?”

“There’s no time. We need to get out of here first.”

Natasha was very decisive. She opened a window immediately and looked around to make sure that the coast was clear.

She held Ruth next to the window and said, “Ruth, I’ll count down to one, and we’ll jump together.”

“Jump?” Ruth gulped and said, Natasha, this is too high. I am scared.” “It’s just two floors. Besides, we’ll land on grass. We won’t die.” Natasha comforted her.

“Natasha, do we have no other choice?

“Ruth asked while trembling.

“Yes, you can choose between jumping or dying,” Natasha said coldly.

“What?” Ruth was so scared that she shrank backward.

“No time for nonsense. It’ll be too late. Three, two, one, jump!” Natasha couldn’t wait any longer as she held Ruth’s hand and leaped out from the second floor.

Both of them landed heavily on the field, and they struggled to get up. It was fortunate that the field provided them with a soft landing. The house wasn’t too high either, and they didn’t sprain their feet.

“Let’s go!” Natasha held Ruth’s hand and held the pistol in the other. They gingerly skirted around the corner to get to the backdoor.

When they got to the wall, she looked around carefully and made sure that there was no one outside before running out at full speed. However, just as they were about to leave, they heard someone calling out behind them mockingly.

“Miss Harmon, where are you going?”

Natasha turned pale when she heard the voice. Without hesitating, she turned around with the pistol raised and was ready to fire.

Nevertheless, before she could get a hold of the situation, a shadow flashed beside her. Immediately after that, she felt a painful jab in her neck before she blacked out and collapsed to the ground.

“Natasha!” Ruth shrieked. Before she knew what was happening, the person in black was already behind her. With a quick jab on the neck, she fainted.

“Take them away!” With that order, Natasha and Ruth were put in burlap sacks and lifted into the car.

The car sped on the road and finally stopped in front of the Grant mansion when the sky slowly turned light. Soon, two burlap sacks were quietly transported to the secret room.

“Mr. Vlad, we’ve already got who you asked for. There’s also an extra,” the leader said with a smile.

“Good job. You may have your reward now.” Vlad nodded with satisfaction as he gave them the signal to leave. “Open it.”

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?
