An Understated Dominance Chapter 905 by Marina Vittori

“This is for looking down on others.

“This is for breaking your promise.

“This is for being a shitty mentor.

“This is for being an ungrateful wench.”

A crisp slap accompanied each of Dustin’s remarks.

Edith’s face was swollen beyond recognition when he was done.


The Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples had been rendered silent. Fear was written all over their


They initially assumed Dustin must have used a dirty trick to defeat Edith. However, the sight before them made them realize how wrong they’d been.

Although Dustin continued smacking Edith, none of her disciples tried to stop him since they

knew they were no match for him.


Edith was on the brink of death when Nikki ran forward and threw herself over Edith.

With a determined look, she said, “You can hit me, but not Madam Edith!”

“What?” Dustin frowned and raised his hand.

Suddenly, Nelson’s face appeared in his mind. Dustin could only lower his hand.

“I know I betrayed you, Dustin. But she’s my mentor.

“I won’t let you hurt her. You can take it out on me if you’re still angry!” Nikki gritted her teeth, insistent on protecting Edith..

“What a good disciple you are!” Dustin sniggered.

“Should I praise you for your loyalty?” He made sure to emphasize the last word.

“I …” Nikki was stung by his words and didn’t know how to reply.

Although she felt guilty, she still felt like she did nothing wrong. After all, there was no way she could defy Edith because of a new friend.

“I know you hate me, Dustin. If you’re still not satisfied, you can slap me instead.

“I won’t fight back. But once you’re done, consider my debt paid. We won’t owe each other anything anymore.”

Nikki lifted her head and offered her cheek to Dustin

“Forget it.” Dustin looked at her coldly.

He only treated Nikki well because she was Nelson’s sister. But since she didn’t appreciate his help, he might as well stop.

He had done all he could, which was enough.

“You treated me very well, Dustin, and I’m grateful for that. So, I hope you and Madam Edith can move past this.

“Let’s pretend today’s events never happened, okay?” Nikki asked tentatively.

“Move past this?” Dustin burst out laughing.

“She tried to kill me, and your fellow disciples were dying to tear me to pieces.

“Don’t you think you’re being ridiculous by asking me to pretend like nothing happened?”

“But when will this end? Madam Edith may have acted out first, but you’ve returned the favor. Isn’t that enough?” Nikki frowned.

Dustin had already beaten Edith up. What more could he want?

“Am I not allowed to hit her when she tried to kill me?” Dustin sneered.

“Besides, I’m a petty man. I’m not as kind-hearted as you.

“There’s no way I would treat someone trying to kill me as a friend.”

“W-why are you being so unreasonable?” Nikki was irritated.

She was trying to resolve their conflicts.

Why wouldn’t Dustin listen to her? And why was a grown man being so petty?

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?
