An Understated Dominance Chapter 829 by Marina Vittori

“That night, I was too impulsive and unintentionally hit you. I should apologize.” Dahlia bit her lip.

Changing the topic, she continued, “Nonetheless, everything I do is for your own good. Mr. Killian comes from a prominent background. If you hit him, you’d only cause trouble for yourself.”

“Gavin does have some status, but that doesn’t mean I fear him,” Dustin said indifferently.

“Dustin, Mr. Killian isn’t as ordinary as you think. You can’t afford to offend someone as important as him!” Dahlia warned.

Gavin was a successful young man from an influential family. He also has a high rank and even commanded a massive troop.

With just one order, he could command the entire troop to go against someone.

To offend someone like that was equivalent to digging one’s own grave.

“You can think whatever you want. If you think I can’t afford to offend him, then so be it.” Dustin didn’t want to explain himself.

He knew that no matter what he said, Dahlia wouldn’t believe him.

“What? You’re still mad at me?” Dahlia frowned.

“Why would I be? You have no ties to me. There’s no need to get mad,” Dustin said expressionlessly.

“No ties? What do you mean by that? Are you going to keep treating me as an outsider?” Dahlia said with a cold expression.

“Duh.” Dustin shrugged.

“Dustin, don’t you have a conscience?!” Dahlia was getting angry.

“All I did was slap you. If you’re still upset, then slap me in return. If one slap isn’t enough, then give me two. If two isn’t enough, then give me ten. I’ll stand still and let you vent your anger until you’re satisfied. Would that work?”

Yes, she had indeed lost control and hit him. But she’d already apologized.

Did he have to hold a grudge and refuse to let go?

Not to mention, because of the mess Dustin caused, she had to make compromises for everyone’s sake. She had to persuade Gavin and apologize to him.

Only then did Gavin’s anger die down, and he stopped pursuing the matter.

If she hadn’t done that, Dustin would be in hot water!

Everything she did was in hopes that he would be fine.

She didn’t understand where she had gone wrong.

“Dahlia, it seems like you still don’t understand the big picture. It’s not the slap I care about. It’s how you’ve never trusted me,” Dustin said solemnly,


He added, “You were like this back then, and you’re still like this now. No matter how many things happen, you never change.”

“How do you expect me to trust you? I saw it with my own eyes. Could that have been fake?”

Dahlia raised her eyebrows in anger.

She’d already lowered herself to apologize. Must he try to rip her of her dignity?

“Whatever. Pretend I never said anything.” Dustin shook his head, looking disappointed.

As he thought, she was still the same.

“You are impossible to reason with!” Dahlia gritted her teeth. She was so mad that she just turned around and left.

When she reached the door, she stopped abruptly.

She took a deep breath and said coldly, “Dustin, today is my mother’s birthday. I’m throwing her a banquet in the Lunos Hotel. I hope you’ll come. If you don’t, then we’ll never see each other again!”

With that, she walked out.

That was her final warning. The last glimmer of hope between them.

Whether they stayed together and walked away from each other was up to Dustin.

“Your little girlfriend seems really angry. What, you’re not going to try to talk her down?” Natasha teased with a smirk.

“Let her be mad. It has nothing to do with me.” Dustin rolled his eyes. He didn’t have the patience

to deal with that.

“Hmph, at least you have some backbone!” Natasha nodded with satisfaction.

If he desperately tried to appease her just after getting slapped two days ago, then he really didn’t have a single shred of dignity.

“Sir Rhys, there’s good news!”

At that moment, Felix-the guildmaster of the Charging Tiger Guild-suddenly ran over. He was


“What good news?” Dustin was surprised.

“We found him … We found Sir Paul’s killer!”

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?
