An Understated Dominance Chapter 880 by Marina Vittori

“What? You’re stepping down as the family head?” Hector’s words caused the crowd to panic. Since he became the family head, Hector worked diligently and tirelessly to manage the family. He had kept everything in order.

While no one in the entire family dared to challenge his authority, they found it hard to accept. that he was stepping down. “Dad! All of this happened because of me.

“I should be the one being punished, if ever. There’s no need for you to bear the blame!” Natasha started to panic.

If Hector stepped down from his position and handed over all his assets, decades of her father’s hard work would be ruined.

After that, they would be left with nothing and no chance to turn the situation around. “Shut it! It’s not your place to speak!” Hector turned back and roared.

Power, status, and money were nothing to him compared to his daughter. “Hector, are you sure about this?” Trent’s eyes shone with delight before he regained his composure.

“Hector, resigning from the role of the family head is no small matter. You should think properly.” Jacob stroked his chin, deep in thought.

“Since a mistake was made, I must accept the consequences. I’ve made up my mind. There’s no need to persuade me,” Hector responded calmly.

“Your sudden resignation would leave us without a leader. This puts us in a difficult situation. “Trent looked troubled.

“Trent, you are both courageous and resourceful and the eldest amongst us. You are more than qualified to take on the role,” Hector said.

“That doesn’t seem appropriate. I’m afraid it will take time to gain everyone’s trust.” Trent faked reluctance.

“Trent, your contributions to the family are no less than Hector’s. I believe you are very suited for the role!” Jacob showed his support.

“That’s right! Uncle Trent has wisdom and courage. His hard work and achievements are remarkable. He can be the family head,” Dylan echoed.

“Dad, it will be hard at first. But since everyone is nominating you, why don’t you accept it?” Kate said with a smile.

They had struggled this long all for this moment. Thankfully, their determination and efforts didn’t go to waste.

Her father had finally risen to power.

“Alright. Since everyone is insistent, I’ll try it for a few days.

“If a more suitable candidate shows up, I’ll step down and let them take over,” Trent humbly. said with a smile.

“With Trent leading the family from now on, I believe the Harmons will reach even greater heights!” Jacob took the opportunity to flatter Trent.

“Congratulations, Uncle Trent! Congratulations on becoming the family head of us, Harmons! “Dylan shook his hand.

“Congratulations, Mr. Trent!” The crowd exchanged glances and was quick to catch on.

They congratulated Trent loudly together.

Trent burst into laughter. “Hahaha… Alright! From now on, I will do my best for the family. I will not disappoint you!”

“Trent, congratulations on getting what you wished for. With the injuries I have, may I be excused?” Hector bowed slightly.

“Go ahead. Take good care of yourself.” Trent smiled and nodded.

Since he was just appointed the family head, he was in a good mood.

“Hold on!” Kate suddenly called out as the father and daughter were about to leave.

“Uncle Hector, even though you’ve taken the blame, it was ultimately Natasha’s mistake. If we don’t punish her properly, there might be others who would do the same in the future.”

“What?” Natasha’s expression turned icy.

“We’ve already surrendered all our assets. What more do you want?”

“By returning the goods that had been stolen, does that mean the theft never happened? Don’t you think that would be letting you off too easy?” Kate crossed her arms.

“Exactly! While we spared you from the death penalty, you must be taught a lesson to prevent you from doing it again!” Dylan stated firmly.

“Don’t push it too far! You know very well whether I stole from the family treasury!” Natasha raised her eyebrows in anger.

She had always been sharp–minded. After what happened earlier, she was sure this had been a


She was the bait, and her father was the prey. All accusations and schemes were planned to


have Trent as the family head.

“What? The evidence is clear. Are you still going to try to argue your way out of this?” Kate sneered.

“Uncle Trent, you’re the family head now. It’s up to you to decide how to handle this,” Dylan said.

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?
