An Understated Dominance by Marina Chapter 153

Chapter 153 

After catching his breath, Thor wheezed. “Punk, you have some guts! It’s been a long time since I last saw a reckless fellow like you!”

“Shut up and pay up already!” Dustin demanded impatiently.

His mood was already ruined. These men needed to be taught a lesson for creating a mess on his property.

“You really have a death wish! Boys, break his limbs! Let’s see whether he dares to talk back after this!” Thor smirked and gestured to his men.

“Yes, boss!” Without a second thought, the assassins swung their weapons at Dustin, with the intent to harm him.

“Hey! You said you would let him go!” Sheila shrieked.

“Ms. Murray, I did agree to not kill him. However, he seems to be dissatisfied with us. It would be rude to not teach him a lesson!” Thor had a cunning smile on his face.

Suddenly, they were interrupted by the cries of pain from the assassins.

Before the assassins could rush up to Dustin, they fell over one by one, as if they had been struck by lightning. All of the assassins were paralyzed and unable to move.

After careful inspection, Thor realized that there were silver needles pierced into their necks!

“How could this be?” Thor’s lips trembled as a chill ran down his spine.

He knew what these silver needles were used for. They could be used for acupuncture or as a hidden weapon.

However, he had never seen a technique where multiple hidden needles could be simultaneously shot at the same time.

“How could this guy execute stealth attacks with hidden needles?” Claudia was secretly shocked as well.

Needles were one of the hardest weapons to master, compared to other hidden weapons. Not only did it require deadly accuracy, but perfecting its technique required persistent and grueling training.

“Punk! Who the hell are you? How dare you poke your nose into my business?” Thor narrowed his eyes as he drew his sword.

“Give me my compensation,” Dustin insisted stubbornly.

“Bastard!” Thor was furious.

Without warning, he threw a fistful of dust into Dustin’s eyes. After that, he pulled out his sword and rushed toward Dustin, using the dust as a smokescreen.

Thor had used this tactic many times. When his opponent was taken by surprise, he would stab them with his sword. Stronger men than himself had fallen for this sneak attack.

However, Dustin did not dodge. With a wave of his hand, the dust cleared Immediately.


Chapter 153

Dustin flicked two needles from his fingers, which flew swiftly and pierced into Thor’s kneescausing him to

scream in pain.

Thor’s legs crumpled from under him, and he crashed to his knees. His heavy sword fell to the ground with a


“H–How could this be?” Thor widened his eyes in horror.

How could Dustin’s aim be so accurate when the dust was obstructing his vision? What’s more, his legs

became as heavy as lead after Dustin attacked him with needles.

The only skills you have are the tricks up your sleeve. Your fighting abilitieson the other hand, aren’t that

impressive.” Dustin remarked condescendingly.

An oppressive aura pressed on Thor’s body as he gasped for air, cold sweat dripping down his forehead.

“Don’t be reckless! I have nothing against you, there’s no need for you to kill me!” Thor pleaded for his


He thought that he had a perfect plan in place. Who would have expected a troublemaker to turn up and make

everything go awry?

“I didn’t have anything against you before this, but now I have,” Dustin said as he inserted another needle into

Thor’s neck. With a jerk, Thor’s limbs were paralyzed.

Inside Thor’s sleeve, there was a poisonous arrow that shone with an eerie light. Thor had planned to attack

Dustin with that arrow!

“Miss, you can deal with these men. Do whatever you want with them!” Dustin patted the dust from his clothes and sat down on a chair nearby. This young lady had a good heart, so he didn’t mind extending a helping hand.

“Wow, you’re an amazing fighter!” Sheila exclaimed with delight. She had almost lost hope.

Who knew that the doctor of this medical center was also a master of hidden weapons? He single–handedly

finished off all the assassins!

“What’s so great about using hidden weapons? There’s no honor in stealth attacks!” Claudia scoffed.

Being born into a family of martial artists, she had no respect for people who engaged in sneak attacks and

underhanded methods.

To be fair, she was a victim of Thor’s sneak attack which caused her to be severely injured. As Claudia thought of this, anger burned within her.

Claudia picked up the sword from the ground and held it to Thor’s neck. “Speak! Who sent you?”

“I don’t know. Being hitman, I am employed to kill, steal, and destroy. As long as they pay up, we don’t care for whom we work,” Thor replied with difficulty.

“How dare you lie to me!” Claudia sliced the tendons on his arms and legs.

Thor screamed in agony, large beads of sweat rolling down his face. “I…I really don’t know. In terms of

Chapter 153

business deals, I receive instructions from a superior. I’m just following orders!”

“You are making things difficult for me. I have little patience. If you make me wait any longer, say goodbye to your jewels.” Claudia placed the sword at Thor’s crotch.

“Please don’t! I’ll tell you everything!” Thor screamed as he grimaced in pain.

The person who employed us to kidnap Ms. Murray is…” Before Thor could finish the sentence, he suddenly convulsed on the spot, spitting out blood that was black in color

After a few seconds, he was as dead as a doornail.

“Is he dead?” Claudia was taken aback by the strange occurrence.

Wasn’t he fine just a minute ago? How could he die so suddenly?

While she mused over his death, Thor’s abdomen visibly swelled up.

Something seemed to be crawling under the surface of his skin.

spider emerged from his belly button, followed by a whole swarm of spiders, crawling all over Thor’s

lifeless body.

It was a revolting sight to see.

“What are all these spiders doing inside his body?” Sheila staggered backward in shock.

At that moment, Dustin smirked. “Interesting. Having the ability to activate venomous curses from

afar, the person who employed Thor to kidnap you must be very powerful!”
