An Understated Dominance Chapter 1085 by Marina Vittori

Dustin said seriously, “Caden Murray, the Soul Devouring Technique is a crash course for those out of options.

“If you continue down this path, you’ll meet a violent end sooner or later!” “Nonsense! I’m stronger than ever now! I can take on a thousand-man army without fear!” Caden roared.

“Being strong is all an illusion. Right now, your body is deteriorating fast. If you continue in your foolishness, you’ll only end up harming yourself and those around you!” Dustin warned.

An instant death was considered merciful for those who practiced the Soul Devouring Technique. The real danger was if they went to extremes in training.

They would go berserk and not recognize their loved ones, killing everyone they saw. That was why the nearest and dearest to them often suffered from their madness. There might even come a day when Sheila will be killed by Caden.

“Brat! You can stop with the nonsense now. Even if you come up with the most ridiculous stories, I won’t spare you!” Caden sneered before reaching out to grab Dustin once more. Dustin’s expression darkened. He was about to retaliate when suddenly, a gunshot rang out from outside.

The noise stopped the both of them in their tracks. They turned toward the sound and saw a burly old man with white hair walk in proudly, accompanied by several subordinates. The old man had a squarish face and a bristly beard. His aura commanded respect from others.

It was an air forged through years of battle experience and sent shivers down the spine with just one glance. The old man was Christopher Murray, Dragonmarsh’s Grand General, and the kingdom’s protector.

“Dad?” Caden cooled down immediately and stood obediently, showing a respectful demeanor. “What’s going on? Aren’t you afraid of being ridiculed? Why are you fighting at the doorstep of our home?” Christopher said sternly.

“Dad, this brat harmed Roxanne. I was just about to apprehend and question him.” Caden explained with his head lowered.


Christopher turned his attention to Dustin and asked, “Kid, you look familiar. What’s your name?” Dustin lowered his head respectfully. Greetings, General Murray. My name is Dustin Rhys.”

“Dustin Rhys?” Christopher’s eyes lit up, and he let out a hearty laugh.

“It’s you! No wonder you look like him. “Dad, you know him?” Caden was dumbfounded. “This kid saved Sheila. Have you forgotten already?” Christopher glanced at him in displeasure.

“It was an equal exchange. He treated her illness, and we paid him. We don’t owe him anything. “Besides, he harmed Roxanne. If I don’t take him in now, how will I explain it to Edgar?” Caden said bravely.

“Did Roxanne die?” Christopher countered. “No, but-!” Caden was about to fan the flames when Christopher interrupted him impatiently.

“She’s not dead, right? What’s with all the nonsense? If Edgar is unhappy, ask him to talk to me!”

“What?” Caden was taken aback. Wasn’t his father usually protective of his own? What happened to him? Roxanne was injured, yet he wasn’t concerned.

“What are you still standing there for? Move!” Christopher pushed Caden away and grabbed Dustin’s shoulder. With a smile, Christopher said, “Kid, you’re finally here. We need to drink to our heart’s content tonight!”

Caden watched them leave at a loss. What just happened?

The world had turned upside down!

Summary An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori

Dahlia Nicholson and Dustin Rhys had been married for three years. After Dahlia’s meteoric rise to success, she abandons the useless dead weight that’s Dustin, proposing divorce. Unbeknownst to her, everything she had ever achieved was only because of him.

Chapter 1 “Dustin, here is the divorce agreement prepared by Ms. Nicholson. All you need to do is sign them.” In the president’s office of the Quine Group, the secretary, Lyra Blaine, placed a piece of A4 paper on the table. A man sat opposite her, dressed in plain clothing. “Divorce? What do you mean?” Dustin Rhys was taken aback. “Do you not understand what I’m saying? Your marriage with Ms. Nicholson is over. You’re not even on the same level anymore. Your existence is nothing but a smear on the president’s reputation!” Lyra pulled no punches as she spoke. “A smear on her reputation?” Dustin frowned. “Is that how she thinks of me?” Back when they first got married, the Nicholson family was in ruinous debt. He was the one who helped them when they were at their lowest point. Now that they were rich, Dahlia Nicholson was ready to just kick him out. “Something like that.” Lyra jerked her chin toward the magazine on the table. A photo of a beautiful woman was printed on the front page. “Look at the headline on this magazine, Dustin. Ms. Nicholson’s net worth has hit one billion in the course of just three years, a feat no short of a miracle. She’s now the most desired woman in Swinton! With all this, she’s destined for greatness. But you, you’re just a regular joe. You don’t deserve her at all. I hope that you’ll see some sense and do the right thing.” When Dustin remained silent, Lyra frowned. “I know you’re not happy with this, but this is reality,” she continued. “You might have helped Ms. Nicholson when she was in trouble, but she has repaid you for everything you’ve done for her over the last three years. In fact, you’re the one who owes her now!” “Is our marriage just a business deal to her, then?” Dustin took a deep breath to suppress the emotions within. “If she wants to divorce me, let her speak to me herself.” “Ms. Nicholson is very busy. She doesn’t need to trouble herself with such trifling matters.” “Trifling matters?” Dustin was stunned. Then he laughed bitterly. “Is that so? Is divorce a trifling matter to her? She can’t even find the time to speak to me. Truly, she’s that unattainable now!” “Dustin, don’t delay this any longer.” Lyra pushed the divorce agreement toward him again. “Just sign here and you’ll get a car and a house as compensation. On top of that, you’ll also get eight million dollars. This is more than what you’ll be able to earn in your lifetime!” “Eight million dollars is a lot, but…I don’t need it. I will sign the divorce papers if she comes personally. Otherwise, I won’t sign anything,” Duston said coldly. “Don’t go too far, Dustin!” Lyra slammed her hand on the table. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you. With all her power and resources, Ms. Nicholson can divorce you easily. It’s only because she appreciates her past relationship with you that she’s allowing you to keep your dignity intact. Don’t provoke her!” “My dignity?” Dustin was a little amused by that. She didn’t even want to speak to him directly to divorce him. What kind of dignity was that? Moreover, if she really did appreciate their relationship, then why was she threatening him now?
