An Understated Dominance Chapter 773 by Marina Vittori

Georgia and Bridget were furious. They were about to launch another attack when Scarlet raised a hand to stop them.

“You’re no match for him. Let me handle it.” Scarlet stood up slowly. She swept a cold gaze across the room.  A chill was sent down the laughing crowd’s spine, and they turned silent. For some reason, they felt like death was staring them in the eye.

“Oh, I didn’t expect to see such a gorgeous woman here. I’m in luck.”Joel’s eyes lit up in delight upon seeing Scarlet. His lips curled up into a sly smile.

“It seems like you people look down on women.” Scarlet said impassively, “I’ll give you a chance. If you can defend against three moves of mine, I’ll let you go alive.”

“You’ll let us go alive?”

The group was momentarily stunned. Then, they howled in laughter.

“Hey, girl, I think you haven’t realized the situation yet. You’re at our mercy, not the other way around!”

“You’re pretty but pretty dumb.”

“Hey, beautiful. If I manage to defend against three of your moves, marry me, alright?” Joel smiled mockingly. He didn’t take her seriously.

“Alright.” Scarlet nodded. With a wave of her arm, a teacup on the table zoomed toward Joel.

“That’s all?” Joel chuckled. He extended his palm toward the glass.

With a resounding bang, the teacup exploded. Tea splattered everywhere.

However, the moment Joel’s palm touched the teacup, he was sent flying thirty feet away. It was as if he’d been hit by a train.

He crashed into the wall with a loud thud and coughed out a mouthful of blood.


The unexpected scene stunned the other disciples. They couldn’t believe their powerful senior had been sent flying by a mere teacup.

“How is that possible?” Daniel cried out in fear. He was frozen with shock.

Joel was his father’s most beloved disciple, a senior of the Zen Order, and a strong fighter ranked among the Heavenly Immortals!

How could one move make him cough blood? It was unbelievable!

“What trick did you use?” Joel asked, panting heavily. He looked shocked.

He couldn’t accept the fact that a mere teacup defeated him. There had to be something strange going on.

“Two more moves.” Scarlet remained impassive.

Her frosty gaze was terrifying. It was as if she was looking at a corpse.

“Attack!” Joel shouted, sensing that the situation was turning against him.

“Capture her!”

After a momentary daze, the disciples from the Zen Order attacked all at once. They tried to overwhelm Scarlet with their numbers.

Scarlet moved among them like a ghostly red blur, inflicting pain and groans wherever she went. In just a few minutes, the Zen Order disciples were left squirming on the floor, moaning in pain. Daniel, who had been hiding behind them, was rendered speechless. He stood there in shock. “You men are nothing,” Scarlet said as she looked down on them condescendingly.

“Stop right there!”

Suddenly, they heard a booming voice behind them. The moment Scarlet turned around, her gaze turned murderous.

At some point, Joel had stood beside Dustin. He had three fingers wrapped around Dustin’s throat, looking ready to kill.

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?
