An Understated Dominance
by Marina Vittori
The Cobra’s expression darkened, and he swept his piercing gaze around the room. He was greeted by the sight of beer bottle after beer bottle.
“Smash, smash, smash, smash!”
The bottles shot out like cannonballs and sent each man sprawling. Each bottle met its target with deadly accuracy!
“Who’s being such a fucking coward? Come out and face me if you have the balls!” roared the Cobra furiously.
No ordinary man could send a dozen men flying with just beer bottles.
“Sir Draco, forgiveness is a virtue. Why won’t you show mercy?” a voice replied.
Dustin strolled out from amongst the crowd, attracting stares across the room.
“Who is that? How dare he attack Sir Draco’s men? Does he have a death wish?”
“He’s quite handsome, but he’s not very smart to offend Sir Draco.”
“If it were me, I would have run away after hurling the bottles. Why would he fucking show his face? Isn’t he courting death?!”
The crowd gossiped. Some were surprised, some showed admiration, and some enjoyed the drama.
“Why are you here?” Dahlia questioned, confused. She never assumed Dustin would show up.
“What is this idiot doing here?” Florence and James exchanged looks of confusion.
“Who are you, boy? How dare you attack my men?” the Cobra asked, with a menacing expression that suggested he wanted to bite Dustin’s head off.
“Who I am is not important. For the sake of your safety, Let’s just let this incident slide,” Dustin replied curtly.
“Let it slide? Who the fuck do you think you are? I’ll just let it slide just because you said so? — Just as he was about to curse, a beer bottle smashed into his head. 1
Blood and beer trickled down his face.
Everyone was appalled! The onlookers‘ eyes bulged with looks of utter disbelief. No one had expected Dustin to be so bold. He had hit the Cobra just because of a disagreement. He showed no hesitation. He must be out of his mind!
After a brief moment of silence, the whole bar exploded in an uproar.
“He’s done for! This young man is dead! No one can save him!”
“I must say I admire his courage. He even dares to hit Sir Draco! He has the courage of a lion!”
“He really is a hero. He has my respect!”
“He sure looks cool, but who can survive Sir Draco’s fury?”
The crowd tattled on, but their gazes as they looked toward Dustin was like looking at a prisoner facing the guillotine.
The crowd muttered on, but their expressions turned to worry as they watched Dustin, a prisoner facing the guillotine.
“Dustin! Are you crazy?! You you actually…” Dahlia sputtered. She was so shocked that she couldn’t complete her sentences.
That was Sir Draco! He lorded over South City and the head honcho of the underground! He did not give a damn about the Laney family! How how dare he?!
“This idiot must have hit his head. How could Dustin be brave enough to hit Sir Draco?” James was dumbfounded.
Although Dustin was standing up for them, what he did was just too crazy! James would never dream of doing something like this.
“You like fooling around so much, don’t you? I’m going to watch your last moments!”
As the shock passed, Matt couldn’t help but smile coldly. He had felt uneasy since Dustin had shown off at the hospital. He had even dared to fool around on the Cobra’s turf this time.
He really didn’t value his life!
