An Understated Dominance Chapter 854 by Marina Vittori

“If you don’t stab me today, you won’t get the chance again,” Dustin reminded Nikki.  As he spoke, he slowly pulled out the sword in his abdomen and tossed it back to her.

“Hmph! I don’t need you to tell me what to do! I’m here to say goodbye to my brother, so I’ll let you live to see another day. When I’m in a bad mood again, I’ll come to end your life!”

Nikki elbowed past Dustin and stormed toward the House of Heroes.

‘Sir Rhys, why didn’t you dodge just now? That woman is horrible. What if you got hurt?” Cornelius was very concerned.

“I owe her that.” Dustin shook his head while looking serious.

Every time he remembered Nelson’s horrible death, he felt remorse and guilt.

At least he felt slightly better after that stab.

“Sir Rhys, let’s bandage your wound.” Cornelius sighed softly. Then, he waved a disciple over and asked him to treat Dustin’s injury.

As the gang leader, Dustin was deeply caring and loyal. Of course, that was a good thing.

But to become a hero and lead the Kirin Gang to glory, these traits would become burdens instead.

An hour later, Dustin was all bandaged up. He sat in the meeting room, waiting quietly.

After a moment, Nikki entered the meeting room. Her eyes were red, and she’d been crying earlier.

When she saw Dustin, she immediately wiped the tear tracks from the corner of her eyes and raised her head. “Hey, just because I stabbed you earlier doesn’t mean this is over. You’ll never make it up to my brother!”

“I know,” Dustin said with a nod. He gestured to a chair and said, “Sit down and have some


“Alright.” Just as Nikki was about to sit, she suddenly jumped up. “You think you can ask me to sit, and I’ll listen? Do I even know you?”

“In that case, you can talk while standing,” Dustin said indifferently.

“Hmph! Well, I want to sit!” Nikki sat down huffily, crossing her arms in front of her chest.

She was trying to make it difficult for Dustin.

“Are the people who killed my brother dead?” Nikki asked coldly.

“They’re dead. Their heads are in the House of Heroes,” Dustin answered honestly.

“Hmph, at least you have enough decency to take revenge for my brother.” Nikki calmed down slightly.

If Dustin said no, she would have stabbed him again.

“I can tell you’re not an ordinary person. May I ask where you’re stationed?” Dustin asked carefully.

“Do you know the Jade Maiden Sisterhood of Oakvale?” Nikki said while looking proud.

“The Jade Maiden Sisterhood?” Dustin shook his head. “I haven’t heard of it. Are they powerful?”

“Don’t be stupid! Of course, we are!” Nikki said with a glare.

“The Jade Maiden Sisterhood has over ten thousand disciples. We are on par with the Valley of Joy and the White Clouds. We are one of the three major women’s guilds of Oakvale!”

“I see. I guess I was unknowledgeable.” Dustin raised his head slightly and continued, “There must be another reason the Jade Maiden Sisterhood suddenly came to the Southern province.”

“How did you know?” Nikki knitted her eyebrows while looking at Dustin suspiciously.

She had come to Balerno with her master to search for the guild’s missing treasure.

When she found out about her brother’s death, she rushed over.

“It was just a guess.” Dustin took a sip from his


News of Nelson’s death had only been released this morning.

The Jade Maiden Sisterhood was based in Oakvale. If they had just received word today, there was no way they could reach here so quickly.

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?
