“It’s a grandmaster!” Harper declared confidently. “Only a grandmaster has the power to do everything that the poem mentioned.”

“A grandmaster? Are you sure?” Cody asked. “Of course! How can a simple riddle stump me? I just needed to warm up my brain to get the answer easily.” Harper was extremely confident.

“Harper is amazing, as usual. She solved the riddle in such a short time. As expected of the renowned prodigy!” Caldwell praised her.

“That’s right! With Harper here, we’ll not only get our hands on Enchanting Elegance, we’ll even earn a billion dollars!” The students of Harmony Healers were ecstatic.

“Hah… It’s just a riddle. It’s hardly a challenge. I can’t even showcase my talents in this,” Harper said arrogantly.

Dustin could only shake his head and snigger lightly. Harper was so overconfident that she didn’t even listen to the riddle carefully and misinterpreted the riddle. It was quite amusing.

“Hey! What’s so funny? Did I say anything wrong?” Harper had noticed him snickering from the corner of her eyes. She was displeased, and her expression grew icy.

“Of course, you’re wrong.” Dustin stated calmly, “You made a hasty conclusion. How could it be the right answer?”

“Who do you think you are to lecture me?”

Harper glared at him and retorted, There’s nothing in the arts I don’t excel in. What makes you think you can criticize me?”

“Exactly! Harper is a publicly recognized prodigy. She’s been immersed in literature and the arts since she was young. How dare a country bumpkin like you show off in front of her?” Caldwell scoffed.

“I’m just giving advice. It’s up to you to decide whether to believe me.” Dustin shrugged. He wasn’t the one who would make a fool of himself anyway.

“Dustin, from your tone, it seems like you have the answer,” Cody asked casually.

“If I guessed correctly, the answer to this riddle should be Time,” Dustin replied, “Time?” Cody rubbed his chin. Before he could respond, Harper had already scoffed.

“What time? What kind of shitty answer is that? It can gnaw iron, bite steel, and grind hard stones to meal. Only a grandmaster is strong enough to do that. What does it have to do with time?” Harper was incredulous.

She sneered, “You’re just pretending to know your stuff!”

“As I said, it’s up to you to believe me or not.” Dustin didn’t bother arguing. Some people would just never admit that they were wrong until they hit a brick wall.

“Cody, this guy is just seeking attention. There’s no need to give him any. Listen to me. Let’s go with grandmaster as the answer. We’ll definitely have the first riddle in the bag!” Harper said confidently.

“Alright! You’re the talented one here. I trust you!” Cody nodded and raised his hand.

“Mr. Jankow, I have the answer!”

“Oh?” Keanu raised an eyebrow slightly. He asked with a smile, “May I know your answer, Mr. Ostrower?”

“It’s a grandmaster!” Cody answered confidently, “Only a grandmaster has the power to do everything that the poem mentioned.”

Once he said that, many people started whispering, discussing whether he had the correct answer. “Mr. Ostrower, are you sure it’s a grandmaster? Would you like to think it over again?” Keanu advised.

“No need. It must be a grandmaster. Just announce the results!” Cody urged.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Ostrower. Your answer is incorrect.” Keanu shook his head.

“What? It’s incorrect?” Cody was taken aback and instinctively glanced at Harper. Didn’t she say they had this in the bag? Why was it wrong?

“How is that possible? How can my answer be wrong?” Harper widened her eyes in disbelief.

She was talented in poetry and the arts. How could she get a word riddle wrong? There must be foul play going on! Someone was targeting her on purpose!

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?
