An Understated Dominance Chapter 917 by Marina Vittori

The water sphere exploded with a pop Even the fish inside exploded into a bloody mist “Huh?” Augustus frowned at the unexpected scene.

Though he had made a simple attack, it wasn’t an attack an ordinary person could defend against. “Augustus Kline, your opponent is me Dustin stepped out while shielding Cornelius.  “So you’re Dustin Rhys?”

Augustus gave him a once–over. His gaze was sharp, cold, and imposing. He exuded an air of indifference, resembling a God looking down upon insignificant mortals.

“That would be me.” Dustin was stoic. “Break your limbs, destroy your core, and apologize to Terry on your knees. That way, I will let you live,” Augustus spat out coldly.

Although his tone was relatively composed, an underlying dominance was unmistakably present.

“Hey, Rhys! Did you hear that? Hurry up and destroy your core, then kneel and apologize! Terry yelled arrogantly.

He wouldn’t pass up the chance to humiliate Dustin. After all, Dustin would be entirely under his control once he lost his cultivation

“Hmph! You’re lucky to be able to keep your pathetic life.” Maggie sneered. She crossed her arms

with disdain.

Augustus was too kind. She would have ended him with a single strike instead.

“We haven’t even started our fight. But you’re already making bold claims. Aren’t you getting ahead of yourself?” Dustin said impassively.

“What? You’re still brave enough to challenge me?” Augustus cast Dustin a sidelong glance.

It was just a glance, but a fierce wind roared around them. Even water rippled endlessly.

“No, you’ve got it wrong.” Dustin’s gaze grew increasingly sharp.

“I’m not here to challenge you. I’m here to cripple you!”

His words ignited a frenzy among the crowd.

“What the fuck? Is this guy out of his mind? He actually spoke to Augustus like that?”

“This guy is too naive. He has no idea how terrifying a grandmaster can be!”

“How is he so arrogant at his age? He’s practically asking for death!”

Dustin’s words had caused a tremendous stir among the crowd.

Some admonished him, some sneered at him with disdain, and others sought to add fuel to the


Who did he think Augustus Kline was?

launched a palm strike

In an instant, the lake divided in half, and a surging wave emerged.

A massive pillar of water suddenly shot up into the sky, resembling a giant pythonIt twisted around twice before crashing down violently on Dustin.

As it passed, a wild wind raged and caused aquatic life to jump out. Even massive trees toppled

The power shown was utterly terrifying.

“Now that you’ve angered Augustus, let’s see if you can survive this!”

Upon seeing this, the disciples of the Jade Maiden Sisterhood gloated openly.

“Hmph! Challenging a grandmaster is like bringing a knife to a gunfight. That guy is digging his

own grave!”

The members of the Doyle family sneered. It was as if they were looking at a corpse.

“A grandmaster should never be insulted. This young man is probably going to meet his end here.” Conrad sighed as he shook his head, feeling regretful.

“This guy has committed endless crimes. He deserves to die!”

The Hill family applauded and cheered. They felt vindicated.

Almost everyone believed that Dustin was sure to be a dead man.

Just as the python–like column of water was about to come crashing down on Dustin, he suddenly


With a quick tap of his toes, he launched himself forward. He turned into a white streak of light as he broke through the “python” and continued toward Augustus.

“Huh?” Augustus‘ expression shifted dramatically.

He unleashed a series of palm strikes, creating numerous water pillars as he tried to stop Dustin. However, the light was unstoppable as it pierced through all the pillars.

Eventually, the light arced through the air. Then, it collided with a tremendous force against Augustus‘ protective true energy barrier.

With a resounding bang, Augustus‘ protective barrier exploded, dissolving into waves of light. His body was thrown upwards like a kite disconnected from its string. Then, he fell into the lake.

Augustus disappeared from view.

A deathly silence engulfed the scene. Only the sound of water bubbling on the surface of the lake  could be heard.

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?
