An Understated Dominance Chapter 1467 by Marina Vittori

At that moment, Mr. Zagatti was shocked and flustered about what to do. Never in his dreams had he expected the Dawson family to be involved in this matter, too.

After all, the Dawson family ranked second among Oakvale’s eight great families, only second to the Langfords.

The Dawsons were the leading group in the medication field. Even the head of the Food and Drug Administration was backed by them. As a manager in the department, how would he dare cross the Dawson family?

His lips trembled as he said fearfully, ” M-Mr. Dawson, there must be some sort of misunderstanding going on!

“The Dawson family is a role model of the entire industry, having a great reputation throughout the years. There’s no way you’d break the law knowingly!”

“Is that so? Then what about the issue with Dew Balm? Weren’t you about to arrest people just a while ago?” Bo asked frostily.

“No, no, no! That was just a misunderstanding!”

Mr. Zagatti was so frightened that he waved his hands repeatedly. “The Food and Drug Administration is only responsible for matters pertaining to food and drugs.

“We’ve got no right to arrest anyone. Of course, I wouldn’t overstep my authority!

“As for the issue with Dew Balm, I’m sure that my subordinates have made a mistake! I’ll go back and conduct a thorough investigation!”

“Hmph! That’s more like it.” Bo flicked his lighter shut and said casually, Remember, as official personnel, you should handle affairs with justice.

“Do not heed the slander of malicious individuals in the future!”

“Yes, yes, yes! I understand!.” Mr. Zagatti nodded repeatedly, secretly heaving a sigh of relief. It was a good thing that things hadn’t gotten out of hand yet, or he’d be in deep shit.

“Hey, aren’t you here to arrest them? Why aren’t you taking action yet?”

All of a sudden, the man by the coffin called out impatiently. “Arrest? Who am I supposed to arrest?” Mr. Zagatti frowned and shot him a mean glare.

“The Dew Balm killed my father, so all relevant individuals must be arrested!” the man yelled.

“Hah! So we’re supposed to arrest people just because you say so? Who do you think you are?”

Mr. Zagatti continued impassively, Besides, what evidence have you got that it was the Dew Balm that killed him?”

“This is the receipt of purchase for the Dew Balm, and this is a report from the medical examiner. There are still remnants of the ointment on my father’s wound.

“All these are evidence that the Dew Balm killed him!” The middle-aged man took out a stack of various reports as evidence.

“Rubbish! These are all fake evidence!” Mr. Zagatti snatched the stack over and tore them into shreds.

“I don’t know where you got these from. But I’m warning you, if you dare cause a scene here again, don’t blame me when I take action against you lot!”

When he heard that, the middle-aged man couldn’t contain his anger, he yelled, “You corrupt officials! How dare you help this evil, money-making bastard take advantage of the people?

“You must have been bribed. I’ll sue you! I’ll sue all of yo-”

Smack! He had barely finished his sentence when a slap was delivered to his face.

Mr. Zagatti shouted at him, “How outrageous of you! Defaming an official is a serious crime! I’m warning you, if you continue making baseless accusations, you might be imprisoned for a very long time!”

“You-!” The man was livid. Unknowingly, his gaze fell on Ezra and Eleanor. Didn’t they agree to put up a show together? Why did that bastard pull out last minute? How the fuck was he supposed to keep up the act now?

“Mr. Zagatti, the corpse of the deceased is right here! And they have all the proof! Why aren’t you arresting them yet?” Ezra boomed.

Ezra had paid and hired him here to put up an act, but Mr. Zagatti was backing out and betraying them at the very last minute!

“Mr. Swanson, this is clearly a misunderstanding. I suspect someone is making a false report, so I must look into things carefully.” Mr. Zagatti tried to gloss things over.

Crossing the Swansons would mean just losing a financial backer. But offending the Dawsons might cost him his job or even as far as getting him imprisoned!

It was clear as day to him which one between the two that he should not mess with!

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?
