An Understated Dominance Chapter 1367 by Marina Vittori

Harper and Cody exchanged bewildered glances, completely thrown off by Ethan’s strange behavior. They silently questioned, “Is it really wise to respond to hostility with kindness? Are those high-society types really willing to risk their honor?”

Dustin smiled faintly. “I’ve patched things up with the Langford family. Let’s put our issues on the table.”

Harper and Cody couldn’t help but notice that Dustin’s smile seemed rather insincere. Cody tried to lighten the mood. ” Dustin, this mess isn’t my doing. I’m a victim here, too. I’ve been waiting by the door, worried about your safety.”

But deep down, he couldn’t help but think, “This guy’s nuts! He even dared to face off with Hugo. I’d be in for trouble if I crossed him.”

Dustin added, “We can deal with our stuff later. Right now, I need to talk to her.”

He pointed toward Harper through the car window. Growing anxious, Harper urged, “Cody, let’s get out of here, now!”

“You want to run?” Maximus snorted. He punched through the car window. Then, he forcefully yanked the steering wheel and sent it flying and crashing into the Langford residence wall. Cody stared at his now-wheel-less car, nearly in tears. He muttered, “My brand -new car!”

Harper was equally stunned and struggled for words. She wonders if anyone could really tear off a steering wheel like that.

With a stern expression, Dustin turned to Harper. “Harper, I rarely resort to violence against women, but your actions tonight have been infuriating.

“You lured me out with a phone call, only to spring a trap with Cody. I might be dead now if it weren’t for my luck.”

Harper, not one to back down, retorted, “Why blame me? I have done nothing wrong. It’s your fault!” Dustin sneered in response. “My fault? Someone like you defies reason, and I’m not here to argue.

“I just want to know one thing: What’s the story behind Mr. Shaffer? If you tell me the truth, I can pretend nothing happened.”

Harper, trying to be difficult, turned her head away and challenged, “Why should I tell you?”

Dustin replied with a cool smile, “If you don’t, I’ll make you disappear from the face of the Earth.”

Harper threatened, “You-How dare you! I’m not someone to mess with. Lay a finger on me, and you’ll regret it!” Dustin turned to Maximus and calmly instructed, “Show her what we’re capable of.”

“Sure thing.” Maximus grinned widely, reaching inside to grab Harper’s hair and forcefully drag her out of the car.

“Ah! Let go! Let go!” Harper struggled and screamed but couldn’t escape Maximus’ firm grip.

With a sinister smile, Dustin took out a green bottle. He held it in front of Harper and said, ” I’ve got a bottle of poison that can make your skin ulcerate, your muscles rot, and ensure they never recover.

Think about the consequences if it spills on your face.”

Panicking, Harper exclaimed, “Rhys, don’t do anything rash! I’m Dr. Busch’s granddaughter!”

Seeing Dustin’s lack of response, she immediately turned to Cody for help. ” Cody! Help me, please!”

“Dust-” Cody wanted to say something but, with one stern, silent glance from Dustin, held his tongue.

He couldn’t help but think, “Dustin is too ruthless.”

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?
