An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1185

“Huh…” As the crowd watched Graham hastily retreat, they were all confused. Their eyes widened in disbelief, and they wondered what had happened.

Graham, the respected grandmaster and leader of the Soul Reapers, had actually been scared away? What had become of his authority and dignity?

Lance hesitated before asking, “Master Thorne! Where are you going?” “I have urgent business at home. I’ll be back soon.” Graham’s trembling voice came from a distance, and he quickly left.

Graham’s earlier injuries from the Black Forest had not recovered. Now that he was facing Dustin again, he realized running away was the best thing to do.

If he ran into Dustin again, it could cost him his life. Making a wise decision meant preserving his life, even if it required swallowing some pride.

Lance was speechless for a moment. Since joining the guild, he had never seen his mentor appear so shaken. He wondered what could have terrified Graham to this extent.

“What’s going on? Why did Sir Thorne run away?”

“I… I don’t know. Maybe there’s a family emergency?”

“Could it be that… Sir Thorne was frightened?” Watching Graham’s hasty departure, everyone exchanged surprised glances. No one had expected this.

When Graham arrived, he gave the impression of being unbeatable. And so, Dustin’s defeat seemed certain. Unexpectedly, Graham fled without looking back. It left everyone astonished.

“That old fox runs pretty fast.” Dustin frowned. Graham’s unexpected flight surprised him. Normally, there would be a fight in the ring to determine the victor. But now, the revered leader of the Soul Reapers, a grandmaster who had made his mark on the world, didn’t have the courage to accept the challenge. Instead, he chose to run away.

Was this cowardice or adaptability?

“Why… What’s happening?” Josie was shocked by the sudden turn of events. Graham surpassed her leader in strength and could even match with the Boulderthorn leader. It was astonishing that he would flee without resisting.

Graham’s change in demeanor when he saw Dustin was disturbing. She wondered if Graham was afraid of Dustin, which seemed likely.

This raised questions about Dustin’s identity. Why was Graham intimidated despite his martial arts experience? That was a cause for concern.

“Are we … saved?” Lyn and the others were left dumbfounded. She had no idea what had just happened. Still, Graham’s departure had spared them from a crisis.

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?
