An Understated Dominance Chapter 1128 by Marina Vittori

“What?” Everyone gasped at the sight before them. They could not believe their eyes. Caden, who they had expected to dominate the fight, was now coughing up blood after only one exchange of blows.



Lily and Sheila rushed forward to help him. Caden’s face contorted in shock and disbelief as he coughed up more blood.

His faith in the Soul Devouring Technique had been unshakable. Yet, he could not comprehend his sudden vulnerability. Was he weak, or was his opponent too strong?

“You… who the hell are you?” Caden gritted his teeth. He couldn’t accept his defeat.

“I am Grimshade of Eskus.”

The black-cloaked figure slowly lifted his hood, revealing a foreign face. His cheeks were gaunt, and his eyes were deep-set, giving off an eerie feeling.

“Grimshade? The grandmaster martial artist from Eskus? Why is he here?”

“Gage must have sunk a fortune into this. No wonder Caden couldn’t keep up. “Oh my! The strength of the Murray family is crumbling. If Caden falls here, it could spell our doom!”

Panic and commotion spread through the crowd as Grimshade’s identity was revealed. The Murrays were in big trouble with a grandmaster on the opposing side.


Caden’s fear was evident. “Gage, I didn’t expect you to hire someone from Eskus? Are you pushing the Murray family into a dead end?”

“Caden, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have another ace up my sleeve,” Gage said with a grin. He had arranged for this very moment.

“You may be the most talented among us brothers. But sadly, you underestimated our family’s resources. Caden continued, “Do you think a single grandmaster can wipe us out? You’re too naïve! Today, you’ll witness the true trump card of the Murray family!”

Caden took a deep breath and shouted, “The Murray family is in crisis! Jordan, I summon you!”

His thunderous voice made the glasses on the tables clink and echoed in everyone’s ears. Some Murray family members cheered at the proclamation. Few knew Jordan, a divine-level martial artist. He was hiding in the Murray residence.

If the thousand-armed soldiers were the Murray family’s main force, Jordan was their ultimate secret weapon. Jordan had reached the rank of grandmaster many years ago. His strength was definitely among the finest in Balerno.

During his training, he had always remained secluded. Moreover, he never interfered in the affairs of the family. As a result, no one dared to disturb him in normal times.

Now, with their lives on the line, there was no other option but to seek Jordan’s help. With his involvement, they believed that Grimshade of Eskus would no longer stand a chance.

“It’s too late to turn back now, Gage! If Jordan steps in, your life is in danger!” “That’s right! Surrender while you can or die!”

The Murray family members pleaded with Gage to reconsider.

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?
