An Understated Dominance by Marina Chapter 265

Chapter 265

As they walked out of Hummer Villa, Natasha, who’d put up a strong front earlier, suddenly felt her knees buckle under her. She almost fell flat on her face. Dustin quickly caught her and asked worriedly. “Are you

okay? Do you feel sick?” 

“No. I’m just out of strength. My knees feel like jelly.” She shook her head. She’d been on edge earlier; now that

she could relax, she felt weak.

“Ms. Harmon, I’ll carry you!” Istrid stepped forward and volunteered to help her.

“I don’t want to inconvenience you when you’re seriously injured,” Natasha said.

“I’m fine. These injuries mean nothing.” Istrid patted her chest to show she was okay.

“You’re seriously injured if I say so!” Natasha’s tone suddenly became stern. She glared at Isirid.

“Huh?” The realization dawned on Istrid when she glanced at Dustin. “Oh, uh, yeah. I feel really dizzy.”

“I’ll do it.” Dustin looked helpless as he swept Natasha into his arms. She had a strong personality but was only an ordinary woman–she had to be in shock after experiencing an abduction.

“Thanks for tonight.” Natasha smiled sweetly and leaned her head against his firm chest. His masculine pheromones made her heart race. Perhaps this was what people meant when they talked about a sense of


“It’s no big deal. I couldn’t stand by and watch when a friend’s in trouble, right?” Dustin smiled.

“Am I only a friend?” Natasha raised an eyebrow, looking slightly bitter.

“What else could you be?” Dustin pretended not to know what she was talking about.

“Hmph! You’re so dense!” Natasha frowned and chomped down on his shoulder. Dustin hissed in pain but didn’t dare retaliate. “This is a mark I’m leaving on you. You belong to me for as long as this is around. I’ll bite you to death if you dare reject me!” She bared her teeth as she spoke.

Dustin grimaced but didn’t dare say anything to refute her. He savored the feeling of her soft and pliant body in his arms; he couldn’t help feeling aroused as her sweet scent enveloped him. They hadn’t known each other long, but he’d unknowingly started to fall for the vivacious woman. That was why he’d been so anxious when he heard about her being abducted. It was also why he’d devastated the Hummer family.

At this moment, Hummer Villa was in a mess. Dustin had crashed the place and slaughtered their men with a single blade, even crippling Joshua, who was the Hummer family’s pride and joy. The Hummer family’s dignity and arrogance had been flung to the ground and repeatedly stomped on.

Dad, I’m crippled I’m crippled!” Joshua howled as he lay in bed. With his core shattered and cultivation destroyed, his life was over.

“Josh, don’t panic. I’ll immediately have our men search for a miracle doctor. I guarantee I’ll spare no expense and pay any price to have you cured!” Edwin said.

Chapter 265

Jade nodded vigorously. “He’s right, Josh. You’ll definitely recover from this! The Grant family has an abundance of rare medicines. I’m sure they’ll help to restore your core!”

“A full recovery isn’t the only thing I want–I also want to get revenge! I want that Rhys brat to pay for this!” Joshua snarled.

“Don’t worry, I’ve already informed Mark about this. He’ll be here in no time. That brat will be dead meat when

Mark arrives!” Jade said.

“Mark?” A trace of hope flashed in Joshua’s eyes at this. “No matter how powerful that brat is, he’s no match for Mark!” Joshua had only achieved divinity a few days ago. He’d yet to fully adapt to this change, and his foundation had been shaky. That was why he could only manifest 50 to 60 percent of his abilities. Marcus Kent, on the other hand, had already achieved divinity three years ago and had even ranked among the Heavenly Immortals. He was more than enough to deal with Dustin.

“Killing him swiftly would be letting him off easy. I say we go after everyone related to him so that he can see what it’s like to be public enemy number one!” Tina spat.

“You’re right. Issue an order for everyone to focus on catching Dustin and his posse. Whoever brings me his

head on a platter will receive a reward of a billion dollars!” Edwin commanded. With that, everyone in the

Hummer family got to work. As the word spread, everyone was raring to go, especially when they heard about

the reward.

At Park Place.

Jessica paced the living room, looking worried. Ruth also fidgeted restlessly, obviously anxious. Quentin was

the only one who looked unruffled. In truth, he’d been delighted by the news of Natasha’s abduction. If

anything were to happen to her, there was a high chance of him taking over the company. Of course, in a best- case scenario, both Dustin and Natasha would die at Hummer Villa. That way, Quentin would finally have

gotten his revenge!

“Mrs. Harmon!” The butler ran into the living room.

“So? Is there any news on Natasha?” Jessica’s heart leaped to her throat. Though she believed the Hummers wouldn’t do anything rash, she couldn’t be absolutely sure.

“The shadow guards just sent word back that Ms. Harmon’s been rescued. She’s a little roughed up but is fine

as a whole,” the butler said.

“That’s great!” Jessica heaved a sigh of relief, looking joyful.

“I knew she’d be fine! How could anything happen to her?” Ruth laughed.

Quentin gnashed his teeth, looking pissed. He’d stuck around for so long to receive such terrible news–what was wrong with the Hummer family? How weak could they be, allowing Natasha to get away so easily?

“As expected, we made the right choice by mobilizing the shadow guards. Otherwise, this rescue mission

wouldn’t have been so successful.” Jessica smiled.

“Mrs. Harmon, the shadow guards weren’t the ones who rescued Ms. Harmon,” The butler’s expression

Chapter 265

became a little odd.

“Who else could it be? Don’t tell me the Hummers voluntarily let her go.”

“The Hummers didn’t free her of their own volition, and neither did the shadow guards contribute to rescuing Ms. Harmon,” the butler said. “Mr. Dustin Rhys was the one who singlehandedly saved her. He slaughtered Darkwrath, Lightwrath, Judge, and the Hummer family’s elite army. No one in the Hummer family was match for him!”

His words dumbfounded Jessica and the others. Dustin had singlehandedly defeated so many people? Was he truly human
