An Understated Dominance Chapter 1699 by Marina Vittori

“Uncle Seth… Uncle Seth!”

As Seth’s body slowly dissipated, Dustin’s eyes turned red, and his voice grew desperate. Having been severely injured earlier, he was overwhelmed, spewing another mouthful of blood before collapsing to the ground. In a daze, a dejected expression adorned his face.

In the relentless pursuit of truth and vengeance, he had sacrificed too much. Another loved one had departed.

Was his quest worth all the sacrifices? Would there have been so many casualties if not for his vengeance- driven choices?

“For a swordsman, perhaps this is the best ending,” Glenn said. His gaze fixed on the trembling Dragon Sparrow Sword, and he added, “The Sword Whisperer lived a brilliant life.

“Even in his final moments, he shone brightly-single-handedly slaying Alaric, destroying the Dragon Guard, and saving the world. A true hero, unparalleled.”

Glenn was typically arrogant and dismissive, even toward his own master, but found himself genuinely impressed by Seth. It was the true brilliance a Sword Whisperer should possess, something all swordsmen could only aspire to.

“It’s all because of me! Uncle Seth wouldn’t have died if it weren’t for saving me!” Dustin regretted his actions and lay on the ground with tears streaming down his face.

If seeking revenge meant losing more loved ones, he’d rather live his life as a nobody and drift aimlessly through it.

At that moment, he grasped the decisions his father made years ago – the death of his mother and his powerful father enduring humiliation.

Initially perceiving his father as weak and fearful of losing power and status, Dustin came to realize that his father’s fear wasn’t centered on losing power but on avoiding the sacrifice of more loved ones.

Some experiences were impossible to comprehend without walking in another’s shoes. Could it be that his father was the most helpless and tormented person back then?

“Logan, if you let this affect you, then I’ve misjudged you,” Glenn stated coldly.

“Seth’s death was his own choice, his decision. It has nothing to do with you. Also, do you think you can live peacefully by doing nothing? You’re terribly naive!

“Dragon Guard had strategically planned a decade ago, aiming to annex the West Lucozian monarchy. The moment has now arrived.

“Whether or not you were involved in these affairs, calamity is inevitable- just a matter of days sooner or later.”

Glenn continued, “As the Crown Prince of West Lucozia, you carry everyone’s hopes and should shoulder corresponding responsibilities!

“Instead of crying and blaming yourself, it’s better to stand up and continue your unfinished plans, even if they are wrong. Only then can the sacrifices for you have meaning! Do you understand?”

Then, Glenn grabbed Dustin’s collar and lifted him. Glenn rarely got angry, but seeing Dustin in such a pitiful state infuriated him.

After listening to Glenn’s words, Dustin’s desolate expression gradually eased. In his lifeless eyes, a glimmer of spirit returned.

Dustin said resolutely, “You’re right. I can’t let Uncle Seth’s sacrifice be in vain. I can’t disappoint those who sacrificed for me. I must continue forward. I must change everything!”

Rather than stumbling through life and shedding tears, he would continue walking, honoring his loved ones.

“Exactly. This is the dignified attitude a Kirin should have!” Glenn nodded in satisfaction.

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?
