An Understated Dominance Chapter 1044 by Marina Vittori

Dustin and the others rushed to the operating room after receiving the news. Still unconscious, Cecilia was being wheeled out. Beside her was something covered with a white sheet.

Dustin’s hands trembled as he lifted the white sheet. It was the baby’s lifeless body. His eyes turned bloodshot, and he gritted his teeth. A wave of anger surged within him.

He had promised Nelson that he would protect Cecilia and their baby.Now, not only were the mother and daughter severely injured and hospitalized, but Cecilia had also tragically lost her child.

It was an earth–shattering tragedy for him. Amidst the guilt and self–blame, he was overwhelmed with anger.

He was livid!

“How did this happen? We were fine when we left. How did …” Natasha’s face turned pale as she

struggled to comprehend the situation.

Cecilia was nine months pregnant and about to give birth.

They couldn’t imagine the pain of losing a life that was growing in her.

“I’m sorry, we did our best.”

A doctor explained, “The fetus had already lost its life during the car accident. Saving the adult is

the best we could have hoped for in this unfortunate situation.”

“Baby… My baby…”

At some point, Cecilia had already opened her eyes. Tears streamed down her face when she

heard the doctor’s words.

But she didn’t even have the strength to cry as she was too weak.

“Cecilia, I’m sorry. It’s my fault that you all got involved in this.”

Natasha grabbed Cecilia’s hand. Her eyes were brimming with tears.

The accident was directed at her, yet Cecilia and her baby had been dragged in for no reason.

She felt responsible for the child’s death.

“Haley… How is Haley?” Cecilia snapped to her senses. Her grip on Natasha’s hand tightened.

“Haley is fine. She’s safe. She’ll be discharged in a few days,” Natasha reassured her.

Upon hearing that, Cecilia finally breathed a sigh of relief.

But when she thought of her baby, grief overwhelmed her.

As she cried and cried, exhaustion overcame her. She fell into a deep sleep again.

“Dylan!” Dustin clenched his fists tightly, his hatred burning intensely.

That bastard had crossed the line!

“Dad, I will never let him off the hook.” Natasha’s usually lively face darkened in anger.

Her eyes were cold. “The Harmons are viel demons! They need to learn their lesson!”

She didn’t want to fight each other for the sake of their past relationship. But the current situation made her realize that Dylan had lost all humanity.

He even planned the car accident to take her life. Facing such a beast, Natasha wouldn’t show any mercy!

Hector sighed but remained silent.

He knew there was no turning back after this incident. They were formally enemies now.

There would be major changes in the Harmon family.

The following morning, the Harmon family residence was filled with festive air.

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?
