An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1204
If Ronald died, Theodore would probably be next. “Hmph! With the union backing Ronald, what can that brat do? Even if he’s powerful, he still has to listen to orders obediently.” Quincey grinned widely.
He had believed the Reeds family was on the verge of ruins moments ago. Thankfully, Woody had intervened just in time to save the situation.
“What a shame. I was almost there.” Emery sighed, shaking his head in regret. Today would have been perfect if Woody hadn’t turned the situation around.
“As expected of the Martial Arts Union. They were able to intimidate Dustin with just a few words.”
“Haha… Even the most formidable figures had to bow down to the union!”
Many of the martial artists in the audience breathed a sigh of relief. Although they couldn’t accept Ronald’s defeat, the current outcome was far from disastrous. After all, Ronald was safe now. Nobody would be that foolish to go against the union.
“Dustin, I must admit that you are strong and skilled. Unfortunately, you still can’t kill me. As long as I live, I haven’t truly lost.” Ronald struggled to get up and smirked.
“Let me let you in on a secret. I’m a breath away from becoming an ultimate grandmaster. I anticipate a breakthrough within the next three months. When that day comes, I’ll turn you into minced meat!
“How about it? Are you mad? Afraid? Feeling helpless? But what else can you do other than await your inevitable demise?
“I’m now a union member, someone you can’t afford to offend. If you dare to act recklessly, you won’t be the only one who suffers. Your family and friends will suffer with you!
“Just accept your fate. You won’t be able to seek revenge, nor will you be able to change the outcome. You’ll forever remain beneath my feet!”
By the end of his speech, his earlier humble and cowardly demeanor transformed into arrogance and confidence. With the union backing him up, he felt invincible.
Once he returned from this defeat, he vowed to repay Dustin tenfold for the humiliation he suffered.
No! A hundredfold!
“Dustin, I’m ordering you to back down now!” Woody shouted. “Did you hear that? Get lost! The union is not an entity you can afford to provoke!” Ronald sneered.
“Ronald Reeds, you’re getting carried away. Do you really think Woody can save you?” Dustin asked coldly.
“What? Are you still going to kill me? Do you know how many people will die if you make a move? Do you know how many innocent souls will die with you?
“Dustin, you should think before you act. Don’t harm the innocent or yourself!” Ronald smirked, confident that he had Dustin trapped.
Even if Dustin was the strongest there was, he was just one man. Any man would have weaknesses and concerns. That was why Ronald was confident that Dustin wouldn’t dare take action.
“Dustin Rhys, I’m counting to three. If you don’t retreat, it will be considered a public challenge against the union!” Woody issued a final warning.
“You bastard, drop your weapon immediately! Or be the enemy of the martial world!” Quincey led a group of disciples in surrounding the battle ring.
“I have a tendency to follow through with my words.”
Dustin said calmly, “I’m taking Ronald’s life today, and nobody can stop me. Even if that means turning into the enemy of the union and the martial world.
“Even if it leads to my demise, I’m willing to pay the price!”
With that, the Celestial Blade was raised up high. It was swung down forcefully, beheading Ronald.
