An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1176

At those words, some martial artists looked at Toddy with disdain. They were stunned at the audacity of this newcomer. He claimed to be better than the young grandmaster. The young grandmaster had defeated Augustus and was now challenging Ronald.

Even the most talented leaders of the major guilds would not have the audacity to be so arrogant. They were baffled as to how a nobody like Toddy could muster the courage to boast in such a manner.

“Toddy! Choose your words carefully!” Lyn frowned. She whispered, “The young grandmaster is a once-in-a-century prodigy. He’s in a league of his own, far above the rest of us. How can we even begin to compare?”

Without a pause, she added, “He became a grandmaster in his twenties. Meanwhile, we haven’t even reached the divine level. The difference between us is immeasurable. Even if we practice endlessly, we will never be able to catch up.”

“Hey, Lyn, you are making someone else look good while making yourself look bad. You should know that one day, I, Toddy Yarnes, will reach the rank of grandmaster. Until then, that young grandmaster and I are on the same level,” Toddy declared confidently.

“You’re right! With Toddy’s dedication and hard work, he would soon become a grandmaster,” the Moonlight Reverence disciples chimed in.

“You’re young and ignorant. And yet, you dare to talk about becoming a grandmaster as a lowly martial artist. I really don’t understand where you get your confidence from,” Cornelius suddenly interrupted.

He had trained for decades but was still halfway to becoming a grandmaster. He had never managed to free himself from his limitations.

It puzzled him that someone with no talent and strength spoke as if it were as easy as ABC to reach the level of a grandmaster.

Cornelius smirked when he heard that Toddy even dared to compare himself to Dustin. That was the height of arrogance and ignorance.

“Hmph! What the hell do you know? You’re just an old man with bad eyesight. How could you possibly know my strength?” Toddy retorted arrogantly.

He continued, “I don’t want to brag. Give me three to five years, and I will undoubtedly reach the level of a grandmaster!”

“Three to five years?” Cornelius sneered. He added, “Even if you gave yourself thirty or fifty years, it would still be an impossible feat. You might as well give up on that dream!”

“Hey, old fool! How dare you underestimate me. How about sparring with me?” Toddy glared at Cornelius as if he wanted a fight.

“Toddy, please stop!” Lyn frowned. “It’s not my fault. That old man is provoking me on purpose.” Toddy shrugged.

“Those who were able to join the alliance are talented people. Can you please be a little more humble?” Lyn advised.

“I can’t help it. I have extraordinary talent and strength. Even if I wanted to be humble, I couldn’t.” Toddy shook his head. “Oh? That’s quite impressive. If so, I’d like to learn from you. Who might you be?”

At that moment, a clear female voice suddenly sounded. Everyone turned and saw a group of young men and women dressed impeccably. They gave off an imposing air.

The group was led by a woman in a red dress and white hat. She was armed with a long sword, and her piercing eyes scrutinized the surroundings.

She strode through the crowd, and everyone dispersed instinctively. It was as if they could feel an invisible pressure emanating from her.

“Who are you?” Toddy looked at the woman. After removing her hat, the woman in red cautiously approached him. She said coldly, “Josie Yale, Boulderthorn’s Frostlanders’ chief.”

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?
