An Understated Dominance Chapter 1074 by Marina Vittori

“What?” Everyone exchanged glances when they saw the black needle, surprised. They had seen Dustin removing the needle from the horse’s head. There was even blood on it.

So, someone purposely inserted it into Gale’s head. “Seriously? Could this guy be telling the truth?” Everyone turned to look at Jayden, waiting for an explanation.

“Now that I’ve found the evidence, what else do you have to say?” asked Dustin. Then, he flicked the needle and sent it flying. It landed near Jayden’s feet. “What do you mean? Are you suspecting me?” Jayden frowned.

“I’ve no idea who did this. But I can swear that I haven’t done anything to harm Sheila!” Dustin replied indifferently, “Yeah, keep up with the act.

“Just moments ago, your sister admitted you were the only one who touched Gale. Who else could it be if it wasn’t you?”

“Yes, I did touch Gale. But that doesn’t mean I inserted this needle,” Jayden answered. “Perhaps someone had already inserted the needle before we arrived.”

“That’s right! Sheila has a lot of enemies, and they’re always targeting her,” Roxanne chimed in. “There have been frequent kidnappings and assassination attempts. I’m not surprised that someone would target Gale!”

Dustin scoffed. “You guys sure can give a reason for everything.” Jayden’s expression turned serious, and he turned to Shelia. “Sheila, you know me best. Do you think I’m the kind of person who would harm you?”

“Of course not. Jayden has always been very nice to me. How could he harm me? This must be a misunderstanding, “Sheila muttered while repeatedly shaking her head.

Her cousin had always been gentle and kind. Jayden had never done anything bad. Sheila did not think he was a bad person.

Jayden said coldly, “Did you hear that? Sheila and I are very close. Don’t try to stir things up between us.” “Sheila, you should always keep your guard up,” Dustin reminded.

He was not expecting to prove that Jayden was guilty with just a needle. However, Dustin hoped that Sheila would stay alert.

“Sheila! This man has ill intentions! He’s trying to ruin our relationship,” Jayden declared. “You’re better off without a friend like him!”

After listening to their argument, Sheila tried to smooth things over. Calm down, guys. It was just an accident. Let’s not let this incident ruin our friendship.”

One was her cousin, while the other was her savior. Sheila felt awkward as she was caught in between them. “Forget it. For Sheila’s sake, I won’t hold it against you this time.

“But one more word of nonsense from you, then I won’t hold back,” Jayden threatened. Dustin almost exposed him for pretending to care about Sheila. Jayden could not help but feel frustrated.

Suddenly, Vivian spoke up, “Wait a second. Since someone tampered with Gale, this race should be declared void. We can’t consider it as Sheila had lost.”

“That’s right! Under normal circumstances, Gale had a better chance of winning,” Evan and the others chimed in. Roxanne pursed her lips. “Hmph! There will always be unexpected events during a horserace.

“So, a loss is still a loss. What’s with all this nonsense?” “Let it go, Roxanne. We’re a family, after all. Our relationship is more important. Return Gale to Sheila.” Jayden spoke up as well.

“Why should I?” Roxane asked with her head tilted. “She should honor her bet! I won Gale fair and square! Why should I return him to her?”

She had been eyeing Gale for a long time. After all, it was a fine horse. After going to great lengths to obtain Gale, Roxanne was reluctant to return it.

“Roxanne, be nice. Give Gale back to Sheila. I’ll get you another fine horse in a couple of days,” Jayden tried to convince Roxanne.

“I don’t want anything else but Gale!” Roxanne was stubborn. No matter what Jayden said, she refused to budge. “Sheila, you’re a grown-up already. Are you going to back out on your asked Roxanne. words?”

“I…” Sheila was at a loss for words.

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?
