An Understated Dominance Chapter 1881 by Marina Vittori

The Octennial Array was quickly activated under Dustin’s order. A white light shone from each side of the octagonal formation at the edge of the foggy area. The white lights soared skyward, eventually converging high above.

Then, it descended into a vast curtain of light, enveloping the entire foggy area. The light curtain was translucent. When viewed from the outside, it looked like a giant eggshell.

At this moment, within the spell’s area, the Dragon Guard members could feel the ground beneath them rumbling as they ran. The hard ground suddenly became soft, like a mud pool.

Besides that, there seemed to be a strong suction force coming from underground. They felt like they were being sucked into the mud pool with every step they took.

“What’s going on? Why is the ground so soft?” The sudden change threw everyone in the Dragon Guard members off guard.

Even though they were skilled martial artists, they had never been in a situation like this. Regardless of where they stepped, the ground would turn into a mud pool and pull them under. The more they struggled, the stronger the pull became.

To save themselves, they could only turn to their internal energy to resist the strong pulling force.

However, this would tire them out even faster. If they were unable to leave this mud pool before their internal energy was used up, they would be pulled into the mud pool and die of suffocation.

“Elder Reed, could this be due to the Disorientation Spell too?” The man in black asked.

“This is most certainly not due to the Disorientation Spell. It’s another spell, “The red-robed elder frowned and said quietly.

“If my guess is correct, we’re in a spell within a spell. The person who cast the Disorientation Spell added another stronger and more bizarre spell on top of it!”

“A spell within a spell? There’s someone on earth who is proficient in spells like these?” The man in black paled.

It was already very rare to use the Disorientation Spell. For a person to cast another spell on top of it would be a task that was one hundred times more difficult.

He really had no idea who would be behind this.

“Elder Reed! Help me! Save me, please!

“At this moment, a weaker member of the Dragon Guard team could be heard screaming nervously.

The red-robed elder looked in the direction of the screams and saw that the person was already halfway sunk into the mud pool. As he looked, the person continued sinking.

It didn’t matter how much he struggled. It was still useless. At this rate, this person would be buried alive within the next moment.

“Useless!” The red-robed elder frowned and looked very displeased. Nevertheless, he didn’t ignore his cries for help.

He raised his hand and lifted him up without touching him. It was a very strong pull from above as the person was forcefully extracted from the mud pool.

However, after saving him, the rest of the team was being sucked into the mud pool as well, one after another.

“Elder Reed! I’m going under! Save me, please!”

“Elder Reed! Someone’s pulling on my leg!”

“Fuck! There’s someone under there!”

After the first call for help, screams and cries for help rose in all directions. The whole team was a mess.

Due to the Disorientation Spell before, most of them were already quite scared and had been weakened. With a new spell activated, they had no idea how to handle the sudden change.

“Quick! Call for backup!”

“Right away!” The man in black took out a distress signal flare and shot it to the sky.

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?
