An Understated Dominance Chapter 1494 by Marina Vittori

Enough was enough, and the tension between Ezra and Eleanor was about to spill over.

“Ezra, I get that things have been tough, but come on, be a man! You’re not seriously leaving me, a fragile lady, to deal with everything on my own, right?” Eleanor huffed, displeased with Ezra.

“Whatever! I’m done with your drama. From now on, don’t bother finding me. And about our engagement, consider it over!” Ezra declared with a cold tone.

“Over?” Eleanor widened her eyes, finding it hard to believe. “Ezra, are you joking? Are you aware of what you’re saying?”

“Didn’t you catch that the first time? Let me spell it out-I want to call off the engagement!” Ezra raised his voice.

“Call off the engagement?” Eleanor was utterly baffled. She never expected him to say such a thing. Just the night before, he was compliant and eager to please. It seemed like he had turned into an entirely different person overnight.

“Ezra! Don’t be ridiculous!” Barry scolded. Even if they were to cut ties with the Welch family, there was no need to publicly break off the engagement, turning it into an open feud.

“Mr. Swanson, is Ezra sick or something?” Eleanor cautiously asked. “I’m not sick! I’m perfectly fine!” Ezra snapped. He couldn’t hold back any longer.

“Eleanor, I’ve put up with you for far too long. Do you even realize how insufferable you are? You’re spoiled, petty, and easily jealous.

“Whenever you see a woman prettier or more talented than you, you go out of your way to tear her down. You’re nothing but a toxic person!”

“You… How dare you insult me?” Eleanor was shocked and furious. No one had ever dared to humiliate her like this and to make matters worse, it was her fiancé.

“Insult you? So what? I’m sick of playing along with your bullshit. Leave! “Ezra declared, showing no mercy.

“You insolent fool!” Eleanor seethed, landing a fierce slap on Ezra’s face.

“What the hell! You slapped me?” Ezra shot back, responding with a powerful slap that caused Eleanor to stagger and fall.

Her once fair complexion quickly turned red and swollen from the impact.

“You … how dare you lay your hands on me?” Eleanor covered her cheek, looking both astonished and resentful. No one had ever dared to raise a hand against her. 1

“Disgusting!” Ezra spat on the ground. “You think I’ll still tolerate your nonsense like before? I’ve woken up to reality. I’m done playing the lapdog. If you try anything, I won’t hold back!”

“Ezra! I demand you to apologize immediately, or you’ll face warth of the Welch family!” Eleanor threatened him with a stern voice.

Her family’s influence was greater than the Swanson family’s, giving her the confidence to make such a threat.

“Oh yeah? Bring it on! Do you think I’m afraid of you? I’d rather see the whole thing crumble than continue being your lackey! Fish or cut bait!” Ezra roared.

“Ezra! You’ve gone too far!” Eleanor was furious, her face contorted with rage. She thought using intimidation would make Ezra back down, but she was surprised to find him standing his ground, even ready to go against the Welch family.

“Enough, Eleanor! Go back and tell your parents to return what they owe Dustin. Otherwise, the Welch family will face a disaster soon! Now, get out!” Ezra ordered.

“Ezra Swansons! I’ll remember this and make you regret it!” The door slammed shut as Eleanor left, marking the point of no return for both families.

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?
