An Understated Dominance Chapter 1116 by Marina Vittori

“Mr. Murray! Mr. Murray, wake up!”

The loud shout suddenly interrupted Sheila’s thoughts. She turned quickly to see Jayden, who was unconscious.

“Jayden!” Sheila rushed to check on him. Dustin had punched Jayden hard in the stomach. It left him barely breathing and on the brink of death.

“That Dustin went way too far, injuring Jayden like this,” Vivian fumed. “I wish that guy hadn’t run off so quickly. Or I’d have beaten him to death,” Evan grumbled. Though they couldn’t beat him in a fight, they were seething in anger.

“Quick, let’s get him to the hospital!” Sheila called for help, and they quickly got Jayden into a car, racing to East Swinton Hospital.

Soon, the doctors began to treat Jayden’s injury. It wasn’t until late at night that Jayden was finally out of danger. Luckily, Dustin had held back to avoid causing fatal harm.

In the ICU, Jayden lay unconscious. He looked as pale as a ghost. Caden and the others stood vigil at his side.

The past few days had been tumultuous for the Murray family. First, Roxanne was injured by a horse. Caden ended up in the hospital, and now Jayden was in critical condition. What worried them the most was that all these incidents seemed connected to Dustin.

“How’s Jayden doing?” Edgar rushed into the ward, looking disheveled. He’d been busy all day and had just heard about his son.

“Edgar, don’t worry too much. Jayden is now in stable condition,” Caden reassured him.

“Who would dare attack my son?” Edgar fumed. As the head of the Murray family, he was nearly untouchable in Millsburg. He wondered who would be bold enough to attack his son.

“It’s Dustin,” Caden said firmly. “That punk has no respect. He attacked Jayden and caused serious harm. It’s clear he has no regard for our family.”

“Dustin?” Edgar’s face darkened. “That scoundrel! He harmed Roxanne before, and now he’s hurt my son. I’ll make sure he pays dearly!”

He was livid with his daughter hospitalized just the day before and now his son in a hospital bed.

“Edgar, please, let’s not make a scene. We need to be cautious,” Caden advised with a serious tone. “What do you mean? Do you want me to act like nothing happened to my kids?” Edgar was furious.

“Don’t get me wrong. I’m thinking about what’s best for you,” Caden said firmly. He added, “Remember, it’s Father’s birthday tomorrow. We don’t need a big celebration, but guests will come and go. If we create a ruckus, it will damage the family’s reputation and upset him.”

Edgar furrowed his brow. While he wanted to confront Dustin, he realized that causing a commotion on the eve of their father’s birthday was inappropriate.

“Caden, after everything that’s happened, do you have any suggestions?” Edgar asked.

“Let’s tap into the resources of the Murray family. We’re sure to attract attention, so I propose we seek help from the Martial Arts Alliance. They have skilled people, and with the right money, we can handle Dustin. It’s a practical plan,” Caden suggested.

“You’re right. I almost forgot about that,” Edgar said, his anger fading.

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?
