An Understated Dominance Chapter 1171 by Marina Vittori

Inside the meeting room of Zephyr Lodge, Dustin poured tea into two cups. He handed one to Cornelius. After taking a sip from the other cup, he broke the silence. “Did you deliver the challenge letter?'”

“Yes,” Cornelius said with a nod.

“Did the alliance respond?” Dustin asked. Cornelius replied, “As far as I know, Ronald is still in seclusion. But, the alliance members are furious after receiving the letter. I believe Ronald would read it.”

“Good, that’s exactly what I wanted.” Dustin smiled faintly. Ray’s death would undoubtedly create chaos within the martial arts alliance. So, Dustin took the opportunity to make another bold move. After all, a confrontation with Ronald was bound to happen.

“Sir Rhys, don’t you think it’s too reckless to challenge Ronald publicly?” Cornelius voiced his concern. He tactfully continued, “Ronald is one of the five ultimate grandmasters of Balerno. His strength is unmatched. Hardly anyone below the grandmaster level can even come close to him. He’s like an immovable mountain.”

There was no doubt that Ronald was the most powerful figure in Balerno. Dustin had amazing abilities and had defeated Augustus. Still, he fell short compared to Ronald.

Maybe in five or ten years, given his talent, Dustin could defeat Ronald. But, right now, it was undoubtedly a reckless move.

Cornelius couldn’t understand why Dustin had made this decision. He wondered why Dustin was in such a hurry. Why couldn’t Dustin hold out for a while longer before making a move? “Are you doubting my ability to defeat Ronald?” Dustin raised his teacup and savored the aroma of the tea.

“Your chances of winning are very low, “Cornelius replied. He remained neutral. Then, he continued, “Sir Rhys, you’re in your twenties, while Ronald is in his fifties. He has almost three decades more cultivation and experience than you. Waiting a few more years might give you a better chance.”

“I can’t wait that long.” Dustin shook his head. He went on, “Ronald has the Celestial Pearl. If I give him more time, he’ll eventually break through the grandmaster level. Then it’ll be even harder to deal with him. Now is the perfect time.”

“That’s true. But your public challenge this time is still pretty risky.” Cornelius was firm.

“Don’t worry about it. I wouldn’t have challenged him if I wasn’t confident.. However it turns out, we’ll find out tomorrow,” Dustin said calmly.


Cornelius wanted to say more, but Dustin raised his hand to stop him. ” That’s enough. My mind is made up. Don’t tell Natasha. I don’t want her to worry.”

“Very well.” Cornelius nodded reluctantly. “Now go and get some rest. I need to prepare for tomorrow’s battle,” Dustin said, waving his hand.

“Alright,” Cornelius said. He left soon after.

“Celestial Blade,” Dustin whispered. A streak of black light shot through the darkness. A black, ancient sword suddenly soared into space. It landed right in Dustin’s hand. The sword trembled slightly and made a soft, pleasant humming sound.

“It’s all on you tomorrow, buddy,” Dustin whispered as he gently stroked the sword. Tomorrow’s battle would be a fight to the death. Not only did he want revenge, but he also wanted to destroy the Balerno martial arts alliance.

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?
