An Understated Dominance Chapter 1692 by Marina Vittori

Despite narrowly avoiding death, Alaric couldn’t shake off the pain lingering in his soul. The fear and despair felt impossible to shake off as they kept tormenting him.

“Mr. Drakon, are you okay?” Cesar hurried to Alaric’s side, standing protectively.

“I’m alive? I made it?” Alaric gawked in disbelief. He could not believe that he had escaped certain death when he witnessed Seth’s astral projection.

He believed that he was the chosen one, after all.

“Mr. Drakon, I sensed trouble and acted fast. So, I shot an arrow and got Seth injured. Thankfully, it saved you just in time,” Cesar boasted.

Hearing this, Alaric glanced at Seth, who looked weak. Seth was bleeding from seven orifices and struggling to stand.

At that moment, Alaric felt a mix of surprise and relief. He let out a triumphant laugh. “Hahaha! Well done. From now on, you’re an elder in the Dragon Guard!”

“Thank you, Chief Guildmaster!” Cesar said with a bright smile, nodding.

“Seth, bet you didn’t see that one coming?” Alaric studied Seth’s weakened form with a proud expression.

“You’re impressive, I have to admit. I couldn’t even counter that move. But you still missed the mark!”

Seth said nothing. He coughed violently, and his whole body shook uncontrollably.

“Despicable!” Frost sighed from a distance, looking displeased.

If not for Cesar’s sneak attack, Seth would’ve surely won. After all, battles between such powerful beings should be transparent, based on strength alone.

Cesar’s interference disrupted what could have been a historic duel, leaving the Dragon Guard with no honor.

“Seth! You’re on your last legs. Surrender now, or face ruthless death!” Cesar warned. Though the surprise attack succeeded moments ago, Cesar still hesitated to act rashly. He knew a powerhouse like Seth remained a threat as long as he was still alive.

“Seth, I don’t get how you pulled off that astral projection, but I’m sure it drained you. You’re probably running out of fumes now.” Alaric squinted.

“I should’ve finished you earlier. Maybe this is just how things were meant to be.” Seth glanced at the sky and let out a sigh.

Despite giving his all, he fell just short of killing the traitor and freeing the citizens from harm. The sudden twist of fate indicated that he wasn’t the true hero he had hoped to become.

“Hmph… I’m the chosen one, and challenging me means defying destiny. You don’t stand a chance,” Alaric boasted arrogantly.

“The chosen one?” Seth scoffed.” Alaric, your prowess comes from the protection of vital force. After all, you’re just an opportunist.”

“Pfft! Vital force chose me. I am the supreme ruler. People like you will forever be subservient to me!” Alaric boasted.

“Alaric, you’re way too full of yourself, “Seth shot back.

With that, he slowly stood up and straightened himself. Thick blood began to ooze from his body, and the spiritual energy in the surroundings trembled.

“Thinking vital force ensures your dominance? Well, I’m cutting that off and bringing light to the world!” Seth declared, taking a deep breath. His weak vibe from before disappeared, and now he was buzzing with energy.

At that moment, a formidable aura enveloped the mountain range. Dark clouds gathered, thunder roared, and purple lightning struck Seth incessantly.

It was a spectacle reminiscent of immortal crossing tribulations, incredibly awe-inspiring. Alaric and the others were dumbfounded, standing frozen in shock.

The divine might, thunder, and continuous marvels in the sky indicated a breakthrough. However, Seth was supposed to be on the brink of death!

How could he be transcending into the realm of terrestrial immortals? What on earth was he, anyway?

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?
