An Understated Dominance Chapter 1421 by Marina Vittori

Cody and Harper were taken away, howling. It didn’t matter how much they explained or how much they begged for mercy.

Dante was already upset, and these two idiots provided him a channel to vent his anger. Cody and Harper only had themselves to blame. They met him at a bad time.

There was nothing to fight about. But they just had to stand up and pick a fight. Without a doubt, they brought it upon themselves.

Eighty strokes from the military whip were anything but fun. Even a sturdy army personnel would be out sick for at least two weeks after the punishment.

Needless to say, for a normal person who had never undergone training, it wasn’t rare for them to be crippled or dead after the punishment.

“Dear, those two seem to hate you a lot. Have you ever upset them?” Natasha asked curiously when she saw Cody and Harper being taken away forcefully.

“They’re just two crazy dogs. Let them be.” Dustin shook his head. Harper and Cody were typical bullies who looked down on the powerless and flattered the powerful.

They’d lower themselves and do everything to please those in power. On the other hand, they’d be haughty and look down on whoever they please.

To them, Dustin was just a poor country bum, and his place was below them. He should never have the opportunity to prove himself.

If he was a little better off, they would feel distressed. They would do all kinds of tricks to put him down and throw sarcastic remarks at him. In other words, they just didn’t want to see him get better in life,

They were the kind of shameless people with bad and conflicting intentions. They totally deserved this kind of outcome. After all, they brought it upon themselves.

“Dear, the Fallon family is a military family. The children of this family would practice martial arts from a young age. There are very talented fighters in the family. It’s a little risky if you want to fight with them.”

Natasha was a little worried. She knew that Dustin was great, but Oakvale was not Millsburg. Talented fighters were a dime a dozen. It’d turn out bad for him if he wasn’t careful.

“Don’t worry. If I dare to accept their challenge, I have the confidence to win. The Fallon family has nothing on me.” Dustin gave her a confident smile.

“I’m not afraid if it’s a fair and civil fight. I’m just afraid that the Fallon family will use dirty tricks.” Natasha raised her brows slightly.

Then, she suggested, “We’ll do it like this then. I’ll ask my grandfather to attend the battle. With him there, I don’t think the Fallon family will pull anything.”

“What? That’s not necessary. Besides, it’s just a small matter. Do we need to call in the Duke of Lancashire?” Dustin rejected politely.

“It’s a matter of your life and death! How can it be small?” Natasha’s pretty face became stern. She said seriously, “Listen to me, it’s been decided. If my grandfather disagrees, I’ll abduct him and make him go.”

Dustin was at a loss for words. He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Knowing Natasha, she was definitely capable of doing so. It was just that this method was a little too rough.

“Oh, that’s right. I found out something. But I’m not sure if I should tell you,” Natasha suddenly changed the subject.

“What is it? Just tell me.” Dustin smiled.

“I saw Dahlia in Oakvale two days ago.” Natasha suddenly said. “Dahlia?” Dustin’s smile faded. “What is she doing in Oakvale?”

“I’m not sure.” Natasha shook her head. “But I think she’s doing just fine.”

She added, “She was surrounded by the rich and famous, and everyone was busy fawning over her. Her status and identity have been elevated.”

“Maybe she met someone. It has nothing to do with me anyway.” Dustin shrugged.

“Why? Don’t you want to see her?” Natasha asked, smiling faintly.

“Why would I want to see her? It’s just going to add unnecessary stress to myself. Now, she can walk down her brightly lit avenue, and I’ll cross my wooden bridge. I think it’s best if we remain strangers,” Dustin replied calmly.

“That’s true. She’s lost her memory anyway. I don’t think she will bother you anymore.”

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?
