An Understated Dominance Chapter 1571 by Marina Vittori

Once the dust settled, a massive crater appeared at the center of the explosion. It was roughly 30 feet in diameter, resembling a dried-up pond. It was a devastating sight. At the edge of the crater, Dustin and Anders locked eyes from a distance.

Dustin was expressionless, his gaze indifferent, still holding Scott’s severed head. Anders had a serious expression, facing a formidable opponent. The two stood in a tense standoff, neither making any sudden moves.

“Wait, did this bastard block Sir Anders earth-shattering strike just now?” someone exclaimed.

“Not only did he block it, but he also looks like he hasn’t suffered any injuries,” another added.

“Wow! Since when did Oakvale have a genius who can go head-to-head with the Veros Warrior? That’s pretty unbelievable!”

As the two contenders battled it out, members of the Moseys looked at each other in surprise. Anders had long been an idol to everyone. In Dragonmarsh, only a few could be compared to him, and each was a top-tier talent.

The only ones that came close were the Spanners’ twins from the Spanner family, Fenley Hudson from the Celestial Alliance, and Glenn Hadley from the Sword Union.

However, no one expected an unknown newcomer to match up to Anders.

“Who are you?” Anders asked in a low voice, his eyes devoid of disdain. Their exchange of blows had left him quietly concerned. He knew Dustin’s strength matched his own. The puzzling part was how this seemingly unremarkable person was so strong.

Was he hiding his identity? Could some influential figure be backing him, carefully cultivating an exceptional talent?

“I’ll let you know who I am in due time. But today, I’m not in the mood to play with you,” Dustin said coldly, making a casual remark before leaving. The severed head in his hand continued to drip blood.

Dustin was well aware of Anders’ influential position, almost on par with a grandmaster in terms of power and strength. Despite not being afraid, Dustin realized killing Anders would bring endless trouble.

While the Moseys might tolerate the loss of a pawn like Scott, Anders’ death would be a different story.

As the Veros Warrior, Anders held a status that the royal family wouldn’t ignore. Hence, it would cause a significant uproar in Oakvale.

Reluctant to engage in a prolonged confrontation, Dustin hoped Anders would be sensible. If push came to shove and turned into a life-or-death situation, Dustin wouldn’t show any mercy.

Seeing Dustin retreat, Anders frowned and clenched his fist. However, in the end, he gave up the idea of attacking.

Their strengths were likely evenly matched, and a head-on clash might result in mutual destruction. Risking so much for a dead pawn wasn’t worth it.

Without a guaranteed victory, he refrained from rash actions. A bald man approached, asking in a hushed tone, “Sir Anders, are you just going to let him go?”

“What do you suggest, then?” Anders swept a cold glance.

“This bastard dares to act recklessly in Jadeleaf Manor and even killed one of the Moseys. If we don’t deal with him now, it’ll be hard to settle our grievances!” the bald man exclaimed indignantly.

“That makes sense.” Anders nodded. ” Alright, I’ll give you a chance to prove yourself. Go and kill him, and I’ll reward you handsomely afterward.”

“What? Me?” The bald man’s face stiffened, and he quickly waved his hands. “Sir… I’m just a civilian with no combat skills. I have no clue about fighting.”

“If you have no clue, then why are you here blabbering? Get lost!”

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?
