An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1138

“Bourbon, you old dog, do you think you’re strong enough? Do you have what it takes?” Christopher straightened up, his eyes blazing with anger. He added, “I could’ve taken you down thirty years ago, and I still can.”

“Come on, old friend, cut out the theatrics. You may be able to fool others, but not me.” Antonio sneered and shook his head.

He continued, “After all those battles, you must be full of scars. And after the recent explosion and my hard palm strike, you must be badly hurt. You can’t even stand up straight, can you?”

“If you doubt me, come and find out.” Christopher motioned for Antonio to come closer, ready for a fight.

Antonio eyed Christopher from head to toe, not wanting to fight him. Instead, he continued to taunt, “Old friend, losing your son has got to hurt. I spent five years training, but unfortunately, he didn’t make it.”

“So, it was you, you sly old dog!”

Christopher gritted his teeth, and his breath quickened. “If you had a grudge, you should’ve come for me. Why my son of all people?”

Antonio chuckled. “Attacking you head -on is too tough. That’s why I had to take advantage of your weak spot. Your son, Gage, is your Achilles’ heel.”

He continued, “Oh, I almost forgot to mention. Gage’s wife, who hanged herself in the Murray residence five years ago, is my daughter!”

“What… What did you say?” Christopher recoiled, finding it hard to believe.

“Surprised, huh?” Antonio chuckled.

“To get back at you, I had my daughter get close to your son and make him fall in love. When the time was right, I set her up, laying the foundation for the feud between you and your son.

“A perfect plan, wouldn’t you say?”

“You heartless son of a bitch!” Christopher seethed with rage. “To get your revenge, you’d even sacrifice your daughter? Are you even human?”

“What is the use of having children? In Kimboku, children would make sacrifices for their parents. “My daughter willingly played her part for my revenge. It is her honor. No matter what, she did it and played her part.”

Antonio was indifferent. To him, greatness meant ruthlessness. The sacrifice of his daughter was a small price to pay.

“Screw you! You’ll die for this!”

Christopher’s eyes widened. He lunged forward and delivered a powerful strike at Antonio. Antonio’s eyes narrowed, and he countered with a palm strike.

The iron palms of two grandmasters collided in midair, creating a deafening blast. Furious energy poured out, and a shock wave spread from the point of impact. It knocked some unfortunate

bystanders off their feet and made them cough up blood. Antonio was thrown back more than thirty feet, leaving a deep trail in the ground as he came to a stop.

But Christopher only backed away two steps before regaining his balance. The difference between their strengths was obvious.

“Go to hell!” Just as Christopher was about to strike again, his body trembled. He coughed up blood, and his body almost failed him. Because of his previous injuries, using his power was extremely taxing on his body.

At the sight of it, Antonio couldn’t help but laugh. “Old friend, it looks like your time is up.” He was lucky that his opponent was already wounded. Otherwise, he might not have survived this last blow.

“You vile scoundrel!”

Christopher gritted his teeth and felt his inner energy dwindle, leaving him completely powerless.

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?
