An Understated Dominance Chapter 1362 by Marina Vittori

Ethan had reached his breaking point and slapped Hugo in frustration. The force of the slap sent Hugo sprawling to the ground, leaving everyone in the crowd bewildered. They exchanged incredulous looks, struggling to process what had just transpired.

“What on earth is happening here? Shouldn’t Ethan be dealing with the troublemaker who barged in?”

Some in the crowd whispered.

“Why did Hugo get slapped? Is this some kind of mix-up?”

“Uncle Ethan?” Hugo held his cheek, looking confused.

“Wh-why’d you hit me?”

Ethan’s anger flared, and he threatened, “You blind fool! I’m gonna slap you again!”

He stormed over, landing a series of punches and kicks while yelling, “You laze around all day, bully people, and stir up trouble everywhere.

“Our family is ashamed to have a good- for-nothing like you! Today, I’m giving you a lesson on behalf of your father, you worthless scoundrel!”

“Ouch! Please, stop! Uncle Ethan. I know I messed up…” Hugo winced from the relentless blows and begged for mercy. The crowd was still stunned, sharing puzzled looks.

Ethan’s sudden burst of violence was not what they expected. Usually, when Hugo got into trouble, he’d get a good scolding. But this punishment was just too brutal.

Cody and Harper, who had just arrived by car, were equally shocked by the scene. They thought Dustin would come to the Langford residence to make amends.. They never imagined Ethan would lash out at Hugo like this.

It left them wondering if influential folks had some peculiar habits. “Did the Langford family take a crazy pill or something?” In the car, Lana watched from a distance, her face showing astonishment. Everything that happened that night was completely unexpected.

“Mr. Ethan, he’s your nephew, after all. Take it easy. You don’t need to beat him to a pulp,” Dustin said with a friendly smile.

Ethan’s face twitched, but he didn’t stop the assault on Hugo. In Ethan’s mind, he was thinking, ” Hang in there, Hugo! I have no choice but to do this. It’ll be over soon.”

Under Ethan’s relentless barrage, Hugo lost consciousness. Someone nearby couldn’t bear to watch any longer and said, “Sir Ethan, please stop. If you keep beating him, Mr. Hugo might not make it.”

Ethan finally paused and grumbled, Hmph! A bastard like him needs a solid lesson!”

He then waved his hand and gave the order. “Someone! Get this bastard out of here. Look after him, and give him family discipline once he’s back on his feet!” With Ethan’s command, the nearly lifeless Hugo was carried away, bloodied and bruised.

“Sorry about that,” Ethan said to Dustin, wearing an apologetic smile. “I didn’t handle this right, leading to this mess. If he had done anything to offend you, please forgive us.”

“No hard feelings,” Dustin replied with a friendly grin.

“I’m not here for payback. I just wanted to have a chat with you.”

“A chat?” Ethan gulped nervously. He couldn’t help but think, “What’s there to talk about? With your status, don’t you have some self-awareness?

“How can things go well for anyone who hangs around with you?” While he complained silently, he managed a forced smile and said, “No worries at all; come on in.”

“Thanks,” Dustin nodded, and with Maximus following, he entered the Langford residence. Outside, Cody, Harper, and Lana were left utterly dumbfounded.

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?
