An Understated Dominance Chapter 1358 by Marina Vittori

Having spent so many years in South City, this was the first time anyone had the guts to talk to Hugo like this. It was like playing with fire.

“Yep, you heard me right.” Dustin nodded seriously. “This is getting interesting…” Hugo suddenly burst into laughter, but his expression turned ice cold.

“Kid, I’ve met no one as audacious as you. Demanding the Langford family’s assets-that’s quite the bold move! “I could hand you the Golden Balcony, but would you want it?”

“If you hand it over, I want it. If you don’t, I’ll just have to snatch it,” Dustin replied bluntly.

“Hahaha…” Hugo’s laughter now seemed to be filled with anger than amusement.

“Kid! Do you even know what you’re getting into? You’re playing with fire, and it will burn you!” He spat out the last few words through gritted teeth.

“We’ll soon find out who’s playing with fire,” Dustin replied, his face impassive.

“Alright, I hope you don’t end up begging for mercy later. I like your guts, 11 Hugo said, raising his hand abruptly.

“Turn off the cameras! Clear the room; everyone who’s not involved, get out!”

As soon as he gave the order, the gamblers in the VIP room hurried for the exit; they knew Hugo meant business. After tonight, two bodies might end up in the river.

“Hmph! Let’s see how you wriggle out of this one!” Pablo sneered, his eyes full of resentment.

“No chance; get ready to collect bodies tomorrow morning,” Cody said as he left, avoiding getting caught in the crossfire.

“Hmph! You brought this on yourself by offending the powerful figures of Oakvale. You’ll probably vanish without a trace tomorrow,” Harper said coldly.

She then cast a final glance at Dustin before following Cody out.  Harper pondered. “If Dustin had asked for mercy earlier, there might have been a glimmer of hope. But now, it’s too late.”

“Hey, I’m powerless here too. Best of luck,” Lana sighed, regretfully leaving the VIP room. Lana understood that negotiating with Pablo might have been an option, but the odds were slim to none with Hugo.

From the Langford family’s viewpoint, the Camron family held no significance. Stepping in could only spell disaster for herself.

Under Hugo’s firm command, the Golden Balcony was cleared out within three minutes. Only the Langford family members blocked the VIP room entrance, keeping a watchful eye.

“Now, it’s just the two of you,” Hugo said, lighting a cigarette and exhaling a cloud of smoke.

“Any last words?”

“Before you start, you might want to call Mr. Ethan. You’ll regret it if you don’t,” Dustin suggested calmly.

“Hehe… regret it?” Hugo sneered.

“Kid, I know almost all the big shots in Aylka, but I’ve never seen you. Do you think you can bluff your way out with a few tough words? You’re way too inexperienced.”

To Hugo, Dustin seemed to lose his nerve, trying to talk tough when he was on the brink of death.

“I’m not from Oakvale; I’m-”

Before Dustin could finish his sentence, Hugo interrupted. “Not from Oakvale? That’s even better. Attack!”


The martial artists behind Hugo responded and charged straight at Dustin and Maximus.

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?
