An Understated Dominance Chapter 1177 by Marina Vittori

“What? Josie of the Frostlanders?”

As those words were spoken, the crowd was in an uproar. Boulderthorn was already one of the top major guilds in Balerno. As the chief of the subsidiary guild, Josie was renowned in the martial world.

She stood out among her peers with her unfathomable cultivation skills and outstanding swordsmanship. “I’ve heard that Josie is cold and ruthless. She never hesitates to kill others. Those brats are in trouble now.’

“Serves them right. A disciple from some third-rate guild dares to compare himself to a young grandmaster? He’s really ignorant and arrogant!”

The crowd began to whisper as if they were preparing for a show. In martial arts, strength spoke for itself, and the strongest was in charge.

“So, you’re Josie. I’ve heard so much about you,” Lyn greeted Josie respectfully. At that moment, Lyn tried to defuse the tension.

However, Josie ignored her and glanced at Toddy. She said coldly, “You just claimed to have extraordinary talents and strength, right? Well, show me. Then, she drew her long sword and threw the scabbard at Toddy’s feet.

This action was considered a challenge in the martial arts world. It would be a fair fight if the other person accepted. But if they refused, they would be mocked, and their reputation would take a hit.

“Josie, Toddy was just joking. Please don’t take it seriously.” Lyn quickly interjected. She continued, “Everyone is here today to witness a duel between the two grandmasters. There is no need for hostility. Josie, please let it slide.”

“Hmph! The young grandmaster is my idol. How dare you brag so shamelessly here?” Josie said coldly. She added, “I’ll give you two options. Kneel down and apologize, or accept the challenge, and I’ll break your leg.”

“Josie, don’t be so arrogant.” Toddy couldn’t hold back any longer. He retorted angrily, “You’re only confident because Boulderthorn has your back, right? What’s so special about that? In a one-on-one fight, I wouldn’t lose to you!”

“Toddy, what are you saying?” Lyn became agitated. Josie was the chief of the Frostlanders, a subsidiary guild of Boulderthorn. Her reputation preceded her.

Lyn knew that Toddy hadn’t even reached the threshold of the divine level. So, how would he be able to challenge Josie?

“Lyn, don’t worry. Josie is just some chief. Step aside and watch me defeat her.” Toddy brimmed with confidence.

He thought defeating Josie was his best chance to gain fame and become a prominent martial artist in Balerno.

“Toddy, she’s in a different league. Don’t do it!” Lyn pleaded anxiously. There was a great difference in strength between a lowly martial artist and one at the divine level. This challenge amounted to self- destruction.

“Lyn, although Josie is strong, I’m not inferior to her. If I can’t defeat someone like her, there’s no point in me staying in the martial arts world.” Toddy dismissed her advice.


“Stop!” Lyn wanted to say more but was cut off by Toddy.

“Lyn, step aside and watch me. Today, I, Toddy Yarnes, will take the opportunity to make a name for myself in this battle!”

He confidently walked toward Josie as if he would win the battle. “Lyn, don’t worry about it. Toddy wouldn’t enter blindly. He always has a plan.”

“Exactly! He’s made a breakthrough lately. So, dealing with Josie is a piece of cake.”

Several disciples of the Moonlight Reverence had unwavering faith in Toddy. “Not bad. You actually dare to accept my challenge?” Josie shot Toddy a hostile glare.

“Hmph! I’m seven feet tall. Why would I be afraid to accept your challenge?” Toddy said proudly, clasping his hands behind his back.

He continued, “Josie, you wanted to fight me, right? Attack me with everything you’ve got. I want to see what you can do.”

“Alright, I’m not going to hold back. Today, I won’t use my sword. I’ll fight you with my bare hands. If you can withstand my attacks for ten moves, I’ll admit defeat.”

With that, Josie stepped forward and charged ahead at top speed.

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?
