An Understated Dominance Chapter 1488 by Marina Vittori

In an instant, Beatrix’s arm felt numb, and her heartbeat quickened.

“What’s happening?” She watched her trembling arm in shock. Beatrix was skilled in both mystic and martial arts and had nearly achieved the rank of a grandmaster.

But now, she found herself at a disadvantage against Dustin. Just how strong was this kid?

“How about now? Still want to stand in my way?” Dustin remained indifferent, hoping to teach her a lesson so she’d back off for certain reasons.

“You’re formidable, young man. I admire that.” Beatrix took a deep breath, suppressing the surging blood within.

“Unfortunately, you’re destined to lose today. Look at your palm; it’s turning black, isn’t it?”

“Your poison is useless against me,” Dustin shook his head. His body was immune to poisons, especially after breaking through.

“Useless?” Beatrix sneered. “Young man, you’re overestimating yourself and underestimating the Mystic Arts Order!

“The toxin we’ve used is lethal even for grandmasters. Right now, you’re infected, and your time is running out!

“If you retreat promptly and seal your circulatory pathways, you might last for a few more days. But if you persist in challenging me, you’re sending yourself to an early death! You should consider the consequences!”

Hearing this, Caspian grinned. No matter how powerful someone was, they had to bow down in front of the Mystic Arts Order.

“Dustin! You’re already poisoned and have little time left. If I were you, I’d kneel and beg for mercy. Maybe you can save yourself!” Ezra mocked, reveling in Dustin’s predicament.

When Caspian was defeated earlier, it had frightened him to the core. Fortunately, Beatrix’s timely arrival had averted a crisis.

“I told you, and you don’t believe me. Go ahead, try again, but this time, I won’t hold back,” Dustin declared coldly.

“Fine! Since you wish for death so much, I’ll help you!” Beatrix raised her hand, gathering a black mist that formed a ball. It expanded slowly and seemed like a slowly opening abyss, ready to consume everything.

Caspian and Ezra instinctively moved back a distance. They knew that Beatrix was about to unleash a powerful move.

“Hold on…” Just as Madam Beatrix was about to strike a cold voice echoed at the entrance. A white-haired, red-clad, and gorgeous young woman strolled in nonchalantly.

Behind her, a group of intimidating figures in black robes followed. These were high-ranking members of the Mystic Arts Order, with some being elders and guardians.

Beatrix’s expression changed at the sight of the white-haired young woman. She quickly knelt. “I greet the Grand Sorceress!”

“Grand Sorceress?” Caspian and Ezra exchanged glances. They didn’t dare to hesitate and immediately knelt with their heads bowed, shouting in unison, “We greet the Grand Sorceress!”

The white-haired young woman paid no attention to the three and walked straight to Dustin, smiling sweetly.” Sir, what a coincidence. We meet again.

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?
