An Understated Dominance Chapter 1882 by Marina Vittori

The red flare left a long, bright trail as it shot skyward. However, the translucent ceiling of the Octennial Array lit up for a while, and the red flare stopped halfway.

The red flare exploded loudly. The fiery explosion was absorbed by the translucent ceiling and left no trails.

The Dragon Guard members could only see a flashing red light before it completely disappeared. Other than the explosion, everything else remained the same.

“We can’t even send a distress signal! It looks like we’re completely trapped in this spell,” The red-robed elder said with a frown. He couldn’t find the spell’s breaking point even with his eye technique in this situation.

That was enough to prove that this spell was more bizarre and advanced than the Disorientation Spell, especially when both spells were used together. They complemented and enhanced each other’s efficiency.

“Oh no! An ambush from the enemy!” Just as the red-robed elder was thinking of ways to break the spell, he heard a shrill scream.

Black shadows started appearing in all directions. These shadows took the form of a human, but they weren’t real. It was as if they were made from the thick fog. They moved in a strange manner, and their movements were elusive.

As soon as these shadows got closer to them, their hands transformed into sharp blades, and they started attacking the Dragon Guard members.

“Kill them!” Before they could coordinate their attack, the Dragon Guard members rushed forward with their knives.

Even though their movements were limited, they could only die trying for now. To their relief, these shadows were not very skilled, as they fought like low- level martial artists. Only a few of them were at the entry-level of becoming a divine martial artist.

The Dragon Guard members consisted mainly of divine masters. They had been through rigorous training, and they worked together seamlessly. They were able to defeat the shadows very quickly.

After destroying all the shadows, they lost only two of their team members, and a handful of them were severely injured.

“Hahaha… I thought they would be better than this! Who knew they were all trash!”

“That’s right! There were many shadows, but they were very weak and couldn’t even take a hit!”

“Looks like this bizarre spell isn’t as scary as we thought it’d be.”

Having destroyed all the shadows, the Dragon Guard members were joyous and celebratory. It was as if they had won a big battle.

However, their laughter soon died down. Before they could take a breather, more shadows attacked them again from every direction.

“Fuck! There’s more? Kill them!”

The Dragon Guard members had no time to think as they rushed forward with their blades to continue the battle. After five minutes, the Dragon Guard members successfully eliminated all the shadows, although they did incur more casualties.

After the second wave, the subsequent waves followed one another closely. A huge amount of shadows started appearing endlessly from all directions.

Regardless of how many of the Dragon Guard members were killed, the shadows continued to appear without stopping.

Every wave of the shadow attack would bring more casualties to the group of Dragon Guard members.

As the old adage went, little strokes fell great oaks. The shadows might have been weak, but even the best fighters couldn’t endure the persistent attacks.

As the battle dragged on, the Dragon Guard members became more and more nervous as despair started sinking in.

If this continued, they’d probably die of exhaustion!

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?
