An Understated Dominance Chapter 1764 by Marina Vittori

In that critical moment, Dustin assumed the role of an untouchable otherworldly being. Despite the relentless firing and assaults from the profligates, not a single scratch landed on him.

The two sides seemed to exist in different worlds as though they were separated by an insurmountable chasm.

“What in the world?”

The profligates gazed at the strewn shell casings and the seemingly unaffected Dustin. They stood frozen with their faces etched with disbelief. They held their firearms, struck dumb in amazement. They had never imagined such a spectacle.

Even an elephant would be turned into a hornet’s nest with their firepower. They wondered how Dustin was left completely unscathed.

“What… What’s happening? What’s that force shield?”

“Good grief! He can even evade bullets. Is this guy a human or a ghost?”

The profligates were in a state of panic and fear. Some were trembling so violently that their guns dropped to the ground.

While they had encountered numerous martial artists, some formidable enough to deflect attacks, they had always safeguarded their vital points.

Witnessing Dustin stand motionless and repel all assaults with a semi- transparent force shield was beyond their comprehension. They could not help but wonder how strong he was.

“Damn it! Die!”

At this juncture, Aster emerged from a concealed room. He wielded an anti- tank rocket launcher, and pressed the fire button aimed at Dustin.

The rocket shot forth, trailing a fiery tail, hurtling directly toward Dustin. Dustin was unfazed. He extended a solitary hand, seizing the rocket’s warhead and crushing it. A loud explosion ensued as the rocket detonated. Once the smoke dissipated, he stood unharmed, not a single scratch on him.


Aster was dumbfounded, wearing an expression of disbelief.

The rocket launcher in his hand clattered to the ground. In his current state, he trembled with fear, both mentally and physically. Aster wondered if Dustin was even human after witnessing him crush a rocket with bare hands.

“You’re overestimating yourself!”

Dustin snorted, pointing his finger once more.

Another explosion sounded and Aster was sent airborne again. He crashed heavily into the wall, leaving a dent. Half of his body was embedded in the wall, with only his limbs protruding. It resembled a pitiful painting on the wall.

“Open the basement!” Dustin spoke again.

“Hurry! Open it!”

The profligates, as if awakening from a dream, hastened to press the mechanism.

With a muffled roar, a bookshelf by the left wall suddenly rotated. It revealed a dim passage. The passage descended with clear steps. Every few feet was adorned with an oil lamp.

“Lead the way!”

Dustin held onto Russo and proceeded down the passage.

At the end of the passage was a locked iron door. Upon opening it, a foul odor immediately assailed their senses. Dustin frowned but remained silent. He stepped inside.

On the other side of the iron door was a spacious underground chamber. It was roughly 600 square feet in size.

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?
