An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1225
The next morning, Zephyr Lodge was bustling with activity. It was Dustin’s birthday! Everyone in the Kirin gang was taking it seriously. They had sent out invitations a few days ago for a big party.
The Kirin gang had been in charge of the Millsburg underworld for a long time, with Dustin being known as the King of the Underworld.
Today, he was receiving birthday wishes from various factions. Even those who weren’t on the guest list hurried to send gifts. Meanwhile, Dustin was meditating in the main room of the villa. However, an urgent knock interrupted his mediation.
“What’s going on?” He opened the door and found Cornelius standing there.
“Sir Rhys, we’ve got a problem!” Cornelius said seriously.
He went on, “Early this morning, a group of unknown martial artists broke into Ms. Harmon’s villa. We had our men for her protection, but they killed all our men. And now, Ms. Harmon is missing. She might have been kidnapped!”
“What?” Dustin’s expression changed. “How did this happen? Any idea who did it?”
“We’re still looking into it, but I’ve already sent our investigators. We should have answers soon,” Cornelius replied respectfully.
“Get our men ready. We need to find the culprits fast,” Dustin ordered firmly. The murder of Kirin gang members and Natasha’s kidnapping had crossed a line. Whoever was responsible would face serious consequences.
At that moment, Dustin’s phone buzzed. A video was sent to him by an anonymous source. He got furious after watching it. In the video, Natasha was hanging from a pillar. She looked disheveled.
A sinister man was touching her hair, breathing heavily, and leering wickedly. His strong desire was clear. Also, Dustin recognized the sinister man-it was Vlad! A menacing message came with the video.
“Dustin, you have thirty minutes to bring the treasure map to the Grant mansion. If you’re late, your woman will be harmed!”
Dustin’s anger flared up upon reading that message.
“Tell everyone to prepare. We’re going to confront the Grant family!” Dustin declared firmly and headed toward the Grant mansion.
Tensions between the two sides had simmered in the past, but they had never escalated this far. The audacity of the Grant family had pushed Dustin to the limit.
Everyone had a breaking point, and they had just pushed him beyond his. If anything happened to Natasha, he would confront the Grant family with violence. Meanwhile, the Grant mansion was filled with a celebratory air. Decorations and laughter were everywhere.
The festivities were even bigger than those at Zephyr Lodge because they marked the union between the Grant family and the Harmon family.
The Grant family, one of the Tremendous Three, had joined forces with the prestigious Harmon family. The news sent shockwaves throughout Millsburg.
People from all walks of life gathered to offer their congratulations, turning the occasion into a grand spectacle. The main reason for such extravagance was Tyler. He was a man from a noble background with remarkable talent.
At a young age, he quickly rose through the ranks and became a respected Dragonmarsh general, earning praise for his military achievements.
