An Understated Dominance Chapter 1222 by Marina Vittori

Kate was impatient as she quickly ordered them to open up the burlap sacks. Very soon, the unconscious Natasha and Ruth were freed from the sacks.

“Great, we’ve got both of them. There shouldn’t be any problem now.” Kate was pleased about the current turn of events. Hector would definitely surrender the information with his two weaknesses in their hands now.

“What? It’s her!” Vlad was stunned when he saw Natasha. “Why? Do you know her?” Kate frowned. If they knew each other, there’d be trouble.

“I saw her once.” Vlad replied solemnly and continued, “I was injured by an ignorant man when I got into a fight at the hotel yesterday. She’s with that man.

After he was defeated, he sent his henchmen to investigate Dustin. However, he couldn’t find Dustin’s whereabouts. What a coincidence; they actually kidnapped his woman.

Things were really going in their favor now. “Vlad, the person who defeated you yesterday, was his name Dustin Rhys?” Kate quickly asked.

“I think that’s his name.” Vlad nodded.

“That’s right!” Kate continued with a cold expression. “This bitch couple is in cahoots and has been bossing others around, and they have done many despicable things!”

“Ha! What a small world. Other than hitting me, they upset you as well. Now that they are our common enemy. It’s my chance to exact revenge on them!”

Vlad snickered.

He looked Natasha up and down with a greedy gaze. It’d be a waste to not have fun with such a beautiful woman.

“Vlad, the treasure map is our top priority. You can do whatever you want to these two women after we know where it is.” Kate instantly picked up on his motive.

“Ha, thanks, Kate!” Vlad sneered and licked his lips excitedly. He could have two women at the same time! How lucky. They doused the unconscious Hector with a pail of cold water. He shivered and slowly came to his senses.

“Uncle Hector, we meet again,” Kate said calmly. She didn’t even bother to hide herself as time was running out.

“It’s… it’s you!” Hector opened his eyes with great difficulty and was very stunned to see the familiar face. “W- why?”

“Uncle Hector, I won’t beat around the bush. Give us the map, and I’ll let all of you go,” Kate said frankly.

“Kate, we’re family. Do you really have to be this cruel?” Hector spoke with a raspy voice. He had no idea that it was his niece who kidnapped him.

“Cruel?” Kate snorted coldly, “Uncle Hector, you gave me no choice. You’re no longer the patriarch of the Harmon family. Why do you insist on keeping the treasure map? It rightfully belongs to my father!”

“Kate, do you know that if Tyler Grant gets his hands on the treasure map, it’ll be the end for the Harmon family?” Hector asked in a concerned tone.

“Nonsense!” Kate glared. “Uncle Hector, are you demented? The Harmon family is no longer powerful. Working together with the Grant family is the only way for us to regain our glory!”

“Do you not understand? Tyler Grant is just using you. Once he gets the treasure map, you’ll be useless to him. By then, your life will be at risk!” Hector spoke with great difficulty.

“Shut up!” Kate slapped Hector and shouted, “I’m warning you, don’t try to drive a wedge between Tyler and me. We’re engaged. After today, I’ll be Mrs. Tyler Grant, the most powerful woman in Millsburg!”

“Don’t be delusional. You are just a pawn to him.” Hector let out a long sigh.

“Stop the nonsense! Give me the treasure map now. If not, I’ll kill both your daughters!” Kate was enraged as she picked up the knife on the table and held it next to Natasha’s neck.

The sharp blade sliced through her skin, leaving a glaring and bloody trail on her neck.

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?
