An Understated Dominance Chapter 891 by Marina Vittori

Dustin jumped to his feet when he heard what Florence said. “How did that happen?” “You beast! How dare you ask me how that happened? It’s all because of you, of course!” Florence shouted.

“After she met you the other night, Dahlia seemed to have lost her soul! She refused to eat or drink, and she cried endless nights! Then, this morning, she attempted suicide by jumping off the building!”

Dustin felt like he’d been struck by lightning. His mind went completely blank. Never in his wildest dreams had he ever thought that Dahlia would act so rashly!

How could she attempt suicide by jumping off a building without saying anything to anyone at all? Had she lost her mind?

“She… How is she now?” There was a tremble in Dustin’s voice. “She’s still in a critical condition and doing horribly! Her life is in danger!

“And this is all because of you! You beast! You’re the reason Dahlia threw herself off the building!

“I’m warning you, Rhys! If anything happens to Dahlia, I’ll make you pay with your life!”

Florence swiftly ended the call after spewing threats at him.

Dustin sat there idly with his phone in his hand. When he finally snapped out of it, he dashed out the door instantly.

He got into his car and sped to the hospital within 30 minutes. He quickly found Dahlia’s ward after asking around for a bit.

When he entered the room, he saw Dahlia lying unconscious on the bed. She was wrapped up in bandages and was unusually pale. She looked very weak.

Florence and several others stood by her bedside, looking helpless.

“How dare you show your face here, Rhys!” At the sight of Dustin, Florence’s anger flared again.

“Look at her! Look what a state you’ve gotten Dahlia into! You heartless bastard! How did she fall for a scumbag like you?”

After screaming at him, she began punching and kicking at him to let out her anger.

“Dustin Rhys! I’ve always thought that you were an honest man. Who would have thought that you were such a jerk?” Julie began berating him, too.


“Dahlia didn’t hold onto your past mistakes and went out of her way to defend you. But you had the heart to hurt her so much that you drove her to despair.

“You even hurt her to the point that she would attempt suicide! You truly are a scumbag!”

Dustin couldn’t be bothered to waste words on them. Pushing both of them aside, he quickly checked Dahlia’s pulse. His expression darkened.

Dahlia’s pulse was weak, and her breathing was so faint it felt like it could disappear at any


“Get the hell out of here, Rhys! Get your filthy hands off my daughter!” Florence roared, trying to push Dustin away.

But Dustin glared at her and said, “If you do not wish for anything bad on Dahlia, you better shut the hell up.”

“You-!” Seeing Dustin’s change in attitude, they were all shocked. None of them dared to approach him.

After he shouted at them, Dustin took out several silver needles and began treating Dahlia.

Her vital energy was weak, so he needed to use his true energy to supply and extend her life. Though it would cause side effects on him, it was the simplest and most effective method.

Dustin was soaked in sweat an hour later as he pulled out the silver needles. Black blood trickled out from his nose.

Treating Edith earlier had already consumed much of his true energy. Now that he had given. his all to save Dahlia, he had drained all his true energy.

Hence, the toxin from Septemortis began acting up again. Fortunately, he was strong enough. to endure it for now.

“If anything happens to my daughter, Rhys, I’ll make sure you pay for it!” Florence shouted- her glare was like a feral beast.

Just as she finished her words, Dahlia’s eyelids twitched. Seconds later, her eyes slowly opened.

“Dahlia’s awake! She’s woken up!” Julie was delighted.

“How are you feeling, Dahlia? Are you feeling uncomfortable anywhere?” Dustin bent down. closer to her and asked gently.

Dahlia groaned with her brows furrowed. Her gaze was a little unfocused before it quickly turned wary.

She looked at Dustin cautiously. “Who are you? Do I know you?”

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?
