An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1226 

In Balerno, Tyler was unmatched among the younger generation. Everyone believed that with him. leading the way, the Grant family would become even more influential and ultimately rule over Balerno.

When Tyler’s engagement was announced, it drew attention from all the folks in Millsburg. Not only that, but important people like leaders, merchants, and the rich from all major cities in Balerno also came to show their respect.

As dawn approached, the Grant mansion was bustling with guests. In the meeting room, Tyler sat at the center, calm amidst the grandeur. To his sides were key members of the Grant family uncles, aunts, cousins all lowering their status, hardly daring to make a sound.

When Tyler became General Lionheart and took over as the family patriarch from Arthur Grant, his grandfather, some elder members of the family weren’t happy.

They argued Tyler lacked experience and qualifications. But within three days, those who opposed him met unfortunate ends, and none of them fared well.

With such ruthless methods, Tyler quickly gained complete control of the family in under two weeks. Hence, the saying, “Those who support me thrive, those who oppose me suffer”.

Over time, his authority even surpassed that of his grandfather, making him a feared figure.

“Trent, it’s time. Where is the stuff I asked for?” Tyler asked. Instantly, everyone’s attention turned to the end of the table where the Harmon family members were seated.

“Well…” Trent hesitated, unsure how to respond. Failing to produce the promised treasure map by dawn was undeniably embarrassing.

“What? Did you take my words lightly?

“Tyler’s expression turned colder.

“No, we didn’t!” Trent quickly waved his hand. With a forced smile, he said, 11 Please give us a bit more time, Tyler. We’ll definitely have the treasure map by tonight.”

“I don’t like haggling. If the treasure map isn’t here, then today’s engagement celebration won’t happen. I’ll make your withdrawal public, and you’ll face the consequences!” Tyler threatened.

“Ah?” Trent was frightened, his body trembling. He knew too well about Tyler’s ruthless ways; failing to produce the treasure map would bring suffering to the entire Harmon family.

“Ty…” At that moment, Kate hurriedly entered the meeting room, dressed in a bridal gown.

“Kate, do you have news?” Trent’s eyes lit up as if seeing a savior.

“Yes.” She nodded and looked at Tyler, smiling. “Ty, please be patient. The treasure map is already on its way and will be in your hands within half an hour.”

“Oh? Is that so?” Tyler raised an eyebrow, finally softening his stern expression. “That’s for the best, or I’ll be very upset.”

“Tyler, the treasure map is guaranteed, but there might be a slight problem. I hope you won’t mind,” Kate cautioned. Even if she held someone hostage, she couldn’t be sure Dustin wouldn’t cause trouble.

“As long as there’s a treasure map, I’ll handle any issues,” Tyler replied casually, asserting his dominance.

“Then, it’s settled.” She let out a sigh of relief. Just as they were talking, a loud voice suddenly rang out. “Tyler! Get your ass out here, now!”

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?
