An Understated Dominance Chapter 1697 by Marina Vittori

The Dragon Guard lay in ruins, and the entire Wyvern Ridge, along with the vital force beneath, was severed by a single strike from Seth’s sword. This powerful strike sent shockwaves throughout Aylka.

Within the Regal Observatory, the Elder Sage sat upon a massive compass, engaged in hushed recitations. Suddenly, the ground shook as if in an earthquake.

The central compass, under the impact, burst open with a resounding crack. Elder Sage trembled, spat out a mouthful of blood, and was visibly wounded.

“Master! What happened to you?” Grace, who had just entered, was startled and rushed to assist him.

“It’s an inevitable twist of fate! An inevitable twist!” Elder Sage sighed deeply and coughed.

“Master! What do you mean?” she asked.

“The vital force… has been destroyed!”

He said mournfully, “My earlier prediction has hit the mark. A single sword has sliced through the vital force of the Dragonmarsh.

“From now on, things in the government will be a mess, and the fate of the nation is on a downward spiral. Brace yourselves as our kingdom is on the verge of a major transformation.”

“What? The vital force is gone?”

Grace’s expression changed dramatically. Though mentally prepared, the actual arrival of this tragic news was still difficult to accept.

“Grace, without the vital force, unrest will quickly spread throughout the realm. You must inform the royal family early and try to stabilize the situation as much as possible,” Elder Sage advised.

“I’ve already informed my father about this matter, but he’s been unwell lately. My brothers are engaged in political intrigue, vying for the throne.

“They’re neglecting these issues,” she explained with a furrowed brow. Her father, weakened by constant exertion, had been bedridden recently. Rumors ran rife within the royal family, and several powerful princes were maneuvering to seize the throne.

At that moment, no one was willing to step forward and take charge.

“Alas… It’s all fate!” He seemed to have foreseen this and sighed again.

“The vital force affects the nation’s fortune and, in turn, influences the entire royal family. With the destruction of the vital force, Aylka will only become more chaotic. Be prepared for the tumultuous times ahead.”

“Master, is there really no room for recovery?” Grace asked with a furrowed brow. The Elder Sage remained silent, his gaze fixed on the celestial bodies as he sought signs and omens.

After a brief pause, he spoke with measured words, “The essence of the celestial path lies in restoring balance and addressing inadequacies while moderating redundancies.

“Though the rupture of the vital force has left a significant mark, it reassures us that destiny never leaves us without recourse.”

He went on, “I have deduced that the vital force has transformed into five streams of dracan essence, dispersed across various parts of the world. Whoever can harness this dracan essence will be the chosen one.

“If you can locate these five individuals, Dragonmarsh will not only avert decline but also ascend to unprecedented power. However, achieving such a feat is exceedingly difficult.”

He added, “The world is vast, and uncovering it is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. The crucial challenge lies in identifying individuals recognized by the dracan essence, a task nearly impossible to achieve.”

At the end of his words, Elder Sage sighed once more.

He pondered, “The destruction of the vital force was a disaster for the current government. Yet, as the saying goes, things get better with time.

“Perhaps in the future, there will be a better leader and a brighter era. No one can really predict how things will turn out.”

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?
