An Understated Dominance by Marina Chapter 26

Chapter 26 

As soon as Dustin entered the building, he gradually worked his way up and killed everybody he came across. None of his opponents could stand up to him at all, each

felled in mere seconds.

“You want to take revenge on me, but you don’t know who I am?” Dustin began to close in on Trevor. The look in his eyes was exceptionally cold.

“Damn it! Don’t come near me, or I’ll kill you!” Trevor suddenly took out a gun from

his drawer.

However, Dustin immediately rushed forward and grabbed the muzzle before Trevor could lift his hand. Then, he grabbed the gun.

A metallic groan rang out.



Trevor was shocked to realize that the muzzle of his gun had been twisted by Dustin.

The gun was made of iron! How could he manipulate the gun like it was mud?

“Mr. Mr. Rhys, it’s a misunderstanding. I swear I won’t bother you anymore if you leave now.” Trevor started breaking out in a cold sweat. He decided to give in. Dustin’s power was beyond the level of ordinary people. It was no wonder a big shot like Hunter would be so respectful toward Dustin.

“You won’t bother me, but I want to bother you.” Dustin suddenly grabbed Trevor’s shoulder and pulled him violently. With a crack, Trevor’s arm was broken.

“Argh!” Trevor cried out.

“How dare you touch my woman?” Dustin remained expressionless. He struck again

and broke Trevor’s other arm.

Trevor couldn’t help sweating. His face turned pale while the other people in the room shivered in fear. None of them dared to go near Dustin.

“Fuck! Do you know who my supporter is? It’s Edwin Hummer! The leader of Swinton’s Mighty Three! If you kill me today, Sir Hummer will tear you into pieces!” In the face of death, Trevor threatened Dustin fiercely. He tried to scare Dustin away by invoking his


“Are these your last words?” Amused, Dustin frowned and threw him to the ground. “If you have nothing else to say, you can die now.”



“No! Don’t kill me! Please don’t kill me! I have power, influence, and money. No matter what you want, I can give it to you as long as you don’t kill me,” Trevor spat blood and collapsed to the ground, pleading ferociously, He was terrified,

“Power and influence? Now that you say that, it reminds me of something.” Dustin scanned his surroundings and looked at a corner. A man in a bright outfit was standing there. “You must be his henchman, seeing that you are by his side,

Afraid, the man nodded his head without answering,

“Good. Kill him, and all his assets will belong to you,”

With that, Dustin kicked the knife next to his feet toward the man,

The man looked at the knife. After hesitating for a moment, his eyes became fierce,


Before Trevor could say anything more, the man had already picked up the knife and stabbed his chest violently. Blood instantly gushed out of Trevor’s body,

Trevor’s eyes widened, and he collapsed to the ground. Even after he died, he had no idea who he had offended.

“S–Sir, I’ve killed him.”

“Trevor is pretty influential in East City. Now that he’s dead, do you think you can handle the situation?” Dustin asked calmly.

Since the man had chosen his path, Dustin wanted to train him.


“Don’t worry, Sir. I’m sure I can handle it!” the man said confidently.

“Oh? You sound confident.” Dustin frowned. Slightly surprised, he said, “Let me ask you. What position do you hold in the Drey Group?”

The man didn’t answer immediately. Instead, he pointed at Trevor, who was lying in at pool of blood. “He’s my father.”
