An Understated Dominance Chapter 1961 by Marina Vittori

A minor miscalculation could result in a fatal outcome. The earlier series of struggles vividly illustrated the ruthless nature prevailing in the untamed jungle.

“Wow, can you believe that giant python got taken down so easily?”

“Yeah, it was a powerful python, but it ran into its natural predator.”

“That’s pretty scary! If even a strong python can be defeated so quickly, are we in even more danger?”

Staring at the wreckage scattered around them, the group felt a mix of shock and unease.

The place exuded brutality and danger, leaving them on edge. The fear of becoming prey to the exotic beasts lurking around loomed large, with a high chance of meeting a sudden demise. It finally dawned on them why Ryan had succumbed to madness.

Facing such a dangerous and horrifying environment would be daunting for anyone, and it was still early in the night.

The looming uncertainty of whether more creatures would emerge in the later hours only added to their apprehension.

“Looks like this place is turning out to be riskier than we expected,” Jackson observed, a faint sigh escaping him as his expression shifted to a more serious tone.

“Well, they do say, ‘no pain, no gain.’ After all, where’s the thrill in seeking rare treasures without a bit of danger?” Aidan responded, maintaining his calm composure.

Confident in his strength, he realized that facing the black eagle earlier wouldn’t have been a problem. Therefore, there was really nothing to be concerned about.

“Yeah, it’s unnerving, risking our lives for treasure, only to miss out on enjoying them later,” Jackson admitted with a shake of his head.

Despite his concerns, he found solace in the fact that they held the numerical advantage, and Aidan’s expertise as a grandmaster martial artist gave them a valuable edge.

However, if a lone disciple from the Embersteel Order had ventured into the oasis alone, facing a powerful creature could have led to significant casualties.

“Listen up, everyone! This isn’t a safe spot for us to hang around for too long. Let’s pack up and find another place to stay,” Grace cautioned.

She knew the earlier commotion might attract more creatures. Also, the pungent smell of blood only increased the risk if they continued to stay. Therefore, she opted to seek a safer location.

“Why is everyone just standing here? Did you not catch what Ms. Linsor said? Let’s get moving!” Jackson hollered, instructing the disciples of the Embersteel Order to start packing up.

“Damn! Had I known it was this risky, I would’ve bailed when the sun was still up!” A member of the group expressed his regret.

The man in yellow reassured him, “Cut the negativity. We’ve got Jackson and Mr. Ridge, plus so many experts. We’re bound to make it back safe and sound.”

As he wrapped up his words, a swift vine unexpectedly surged from the ground, piercing through his chest with lightning speed.

It emerged seamlessly, passing from his back to his chest as effortlessly as slicing through cheese.

“Ugh .” The man in yellow shivered, his body frozen in place. His wide-eyed gaze fixated on the vine that had impaled him, an expression of disbelief etched across his face.

As he grappled with the shock, he couldn’t fathom where this sudden onslaught had come from. He stiffly turned his head, attempting to discern the source of the ambush. In the next moment, a gruesome sound of flesh tearing filled the air.

More vines shot out, mercilessly riddling him with holes. The man in yellow’s head tilted, and he met his demise on the spot.

Right up to the end, he never imagined that his words from just moments ago would be his final testament.

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?
