An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 741


Chapter 741
“Dahlia, what happened?” Dustin frowned.
“Yesterday, I went to Glenstead to visit the Nicholsons and check in on Grandpa Regulus. I was on my way home this morning when someone ambushed me. Fortunately, a general was passing by and saved us,” Dahlia explained.
“Why didn’t you tell me you were going to Glenstead? I would have sent someone to protect you.” Dustin demanded, displeased.
“I brought my own bodyguards. I just didn’t expect something like this to happen,” Dahlia replied helplessly.
If it had just been a regular fight, her bodyguards could have dealt with it easily. However, they were no match for someone who wanted her dead.
“Do you have any idea who’s planned the attack?” Dustin asked.
“Not yet.” Dahlia shook her head.
“You were attacked as soon as you visited Sir Regulus. It’s too much of a coincidence. If my guess is right, your family must have something to do with this.” Dustin narrowed his eyes.
“Our family? That can’t be right.” Dahlia’s brows furrowed.
“You’re the largest shareholder of Nicholson Corp. now. Sir Regulus even appointed you as the heir, so everyone’s aiming for your position. Considering all this, it’s not impossible for someone to resort to something like this,” analyzed Dustin.
Dahlia’s current position was bound to attract envy from some people who knew that if something were to happen to her, other family members would have a chance of taking over her position.
To rich families like theirs, nothing mattered more than money and power. Familial bonds
were useless to them.
“He’s right. They must be behind this!” Julie exclaimed angrily.
“Those assholes! How dare they hurt my daughter! I’ll get revenge on them!” Florence roared.
“We don’t have proof, so we shouldn’t make assumptions. Others might use this opportunity to cause trouble,” Dahlia stated thoughtfully.
Although she had her suspicions, that was all they were. Without solid evidence, nothing could be proven.
“I’ll start digging and get to the bottom of this as soon as possible,” Dustin promised.
“There’s no hurry for that. I have something more important to deal with.” Dahlia was serious.

She explained, “I hired a doctor to check on Grandpa Regulus yesterday, and he said that we need to find a Panax root and use it to make a medicine that could wake Grandpa up again.”
“A Panax root? It’ll be difficult to find one.” Dustin thought about it.
“Dustin, you have one, don’t you? Can you-” Dustin cut her off before she could finish her
sentence. “No! ”
“What?” Dustin’s response shocked her. She had only seen Dustin try to fulfill all her requests, so she didn’t understand why he was acting like this now.
“What do you mean by that, Rhys? It’s just a Panax root. Why are you being so stingy?” Florence snapped.
“Dustin, if you give it to us and we manage to cure Sir Regulus, Dahlia will officially get promoted. You’ll get recognized too!” Julie tried to convince Dustin with words.
“I can agree to anything but this,” Dustin responded firmly.
That 500-year-old Panax root was an important ingredient for the nine-fold Longevitum. So there was no way he could give it away.
“It’s just a Panax root. What’s the problem?” Florence glared at him.
“Exactly! You’re not using it right now anyway, so you might as well give it to Dahlia and earn her favor.” Julie echoed.
“Dustin, the Panax root is incredibly important to me. Grandpa Regulus won’t wake up without it. I know this sounds demanding, but I hope you can give it to me,” Dahlia asked again.
“I’m sorry, but it’s just as important to me, so I can’t give it to you.” Dustin refused once
more.
Dahlia frowned. “If it’s a loss to you, I don’t mind buying it from you.”
“It has nothing to do with money.” Dustin shook his head. “I won’t sell it no matter how much you offer me.”
“Then, what do you want? Is a Panax root more important than me?” Dahlia’s face hardened as her temper rose.
She wasn’t angry because of the Panax root. Rather, it was because Dustin didn’t seem to care about her.
