An Understated Dominance Chapter 1666 by Marina Vittori

The black mist bomb that Abigail had just dropped was way more potent than the white mist she had created.

The white mist was a slow poison. Once one was poisoned by it, their limbs would go weak, and they would faint. If they managed to get help in time, there was still a chance for them to live.

However, the blast mist was different. It had a potent erosion effect. It could turn a human being into a corpse in just seconds.

Plus, it would be the disfigured and bloody type of corpse.

“What a troublemaker!” Anders gritted his teeth when he saw Abigail in the air. A poisonous bomb that could kill soldiers within a 300 feet radius-it was terrifying how lethal the bomb was. Nobody would be able to survive if she threw a couple more down.

“So? Do you know how capable I am now? Oldie, get away now if you know what’s good for you. Otherwise, I promise you’ll be dead meat once I throw a few more down!” While riding the eagle, Abigail yelled from above.

While saying that, she took out a few more black balls. Then, she waved it threateningly. At that, the soldiers were so scared that they scattered away to find somewhere to hide.

However, there wasn’t any suitable place for them to avoid the poisonous mist in the wilderness. The hiding spots they found were merely just to comfort themselves.

“Mr. Wilkins, what should we do now? Should we retreat?” A commander ran over, sweating. His face was filled with fear. If they were up against Dustin, they could continue attacking as they were more in numbers.

However, Abigail’s bombs were too poisonous. They couldn’t even see her, but they had lost a considerable number of soldiers. Plus, all of them had died in such miserable ways.

It was truly overwhelming. He had trained all the soldiers himself. Thus, he couldn’t bear to see them sacrifice for nothing.

“Retreat?” Nestor shot him an indifferent look. “Our superior’s order is to kill Dustin no matter what. Are you guys planning to be a deserter?”

“Mr. Wilkins, we’re not planning on escaping. We just want to avoid the danger temporarily. It’s not too late to execute the mission once we find a way to detoxify the poison,” the commander explained.

“A young woman has caused a hundred thousand troops to run away. What will happen to your reputation and the reputations of the other seven commanders if this gets out? What about the royal family’s dignity?” Nestor retorted.

“Well, what do you think we should do then? We can’t let them sacrifice themselves just like that, right?” The commander was distressed. They couldn’t proceed or retreat. The commander wondered what he should do.

“Our superiors have made it clear that we cannot retreat even if all our soldiers died!” Nestor’s gaze was hostile.

“Huh?” The commander was stunned when he heard that. It seemed that they were just treated as cannon fodder. After all, they couldn’t retreat even if all of them died!

“There are times when military orders ought not to be followed. I can’t just watch my friends die in vain, so I have to go against your orders!” The commander clasped his fists. Without further ado, he turned and left.

At the same time, he shouted, ” Everyone from the Red Letter Camp, listen to my command. Retreat!”

“You deserve to die by escaping and causing chaos in the army!” Nestor suddenly reached out to the commander’s neck and gripped it hard.

A crisp sound sounded. The commander’s neck broke on the spot. His entire head was also torn off, and blood sprayed in all directions. The headless body trembled slightly before collapsing to the ground with a loud thud.

“Anyone who dares to disobey my orders will end up like him!” Nestor held the commander’s head and threw it to the army.

The gruesome scene caused everyone’s expression to turn grim. None of them dared to say anything. Not only would they be killed if they retreat right now, but they would also be shamefully labeled as deserters.

Plus, they would lose their pension and drag their family down. Thus, they didn’t have a choice right now. They had to fight with all their might, even if they ended up dying!

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?
