An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1242

Scarlet was a prominent figure in the nation, establishing herself as a potential leader in the political scene. Zachary may be skilled in martial arts but would not dare to challenge such an influential person.

“Why are you silent now? Weren’t you showing off just now? If you’re brave enough, then fight me. Let’s see your abilities,” Scarlet jeered, shifting everyone’s attention to Zachary.

Zachary found himself in a dilemma. Acknowledging defeat would damage his reputation. But winning could lead to more trouble, risking consequences from the Martial Arts Union and potential blacklisting.

“Scarlet, I used to have a close relationship with your father. Is it fair to bring a crowd to my mansion?” Arthur asked seriously.

Scarlet replied breezily, “What does your connection with my father have to do with me?”

“You!” Arthur seethed with anger, feeling embarrassed to be reprimanded by someone younger. “Alright, let’s calm down,” Adam smiled and stepped forward.

He turned to Arthur and said, “Lord Grant, we didn’t come here to cause trouble today. We are here to get justice. You’re holding someone hostage, so it’s best to let them be the best for everyone.” go. It’ll

“Adam, there appears to be a misunderstanding here. The Grant family values peace and doesn’t kidnap people.

“Besides, today is my grandson’s engagement; we wouldn’t engage in such behavior,” Arthur denied.

“Lord Grant, maintaining this formal facade won’t help much. Your family’s actions are clear, and you know it. “It’s better to admit your mistake before things turn ugly,” Adam said with a forced smile.

“Our family always follows the law. I believe you’ve been misinformed,” Arthur insisted, his tone serious.

“Lord Grant, I’ve given you a polite warning. If you don’t listen, there will be consequences,” Adam’s smile disappeared.

“My sister here isn’t as patient as I am. If you provoke her, things could get messy. Think it through.”

“If you doubt our sincerity, feel free to search to prove it yourself,” Arthur suggested. He remained composed and convincing.

“Arthur, I’ve made my point. If you continue to be uncooperative, don’t blame us for being rude!” Adam’s friendly demeanor dropped, and his face darkened. With that threat, Arthur felt cornered, and his actions became increasingly unreasonable.

“Don’t try to reason with him. He won’t change his mind!” Scarlet, growing impatient, ordered, “Men, start dismantling this place!”

“Yes!” Following her command, the elite members of the Dark Panther Cavalry swiftly sprang into action.

“How dare you! Let’s see who’s brave enough to make the first move!” Arthur shouted, and his guards rushed forward in a tense standoff with the Dark Panther Cavalry. As a fight was about to break out, loud shouts came from the entrance.

“Make way for the Minister of War- Sir Hyde!” “Clear the path for the Commander of the Imperial City Guard-General Barker!”

“Step aside for Marquis of Riaz’s eldest son-Mr. Schmid!”

The three successive shouts were deafening, rattling the scene and instilling fear in everyone.

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?
