An Understated Dominance Chapter 962 by Marina Vittori

At 7:00 pm, Dustin, Abigail, and Azalea arrived as planned at the resort’s restaurant. The restaurant was spacious enough to accommodate hundreds of people.

Dustin noticed that there were already groups of people sitting together, chatting lively. While there were a few tourists, most of the guests were martial artists who came for the treasure.

“Over here!” Vanessa called out as she waved at them energetically. Dustin nodded in acknowledgment and led the others to her table.

“I’m glad you could make it. Please take a seat,” Emily greeted warmly. Nathan, who had appeared aloof earlier, perked up upon seeing Abigail and Azalea. He  straightened up and tried to strike a handsome pose.

“Allow me to introduce my friends, Abigail Robinson and Azalea Larson.

“I hope you also don’t mind having them, Ms. Hoyles.” Dustin made a brief introduction.

“Of course not. The more, the merrier. Please, have a seat.” Emily smiled and gestured for them to


“Thank you.” Dustin nodded before settling into his seat.

He noticed several unfamiliar faces besides Emily and her friends. Judging from their clothes, they were also most likely from Azure Mist.

Even the weakest fighter among them was a low–level martial artist. They were stronger than ordinary martial artists.

But they were still no match for major guilds who would also be competing for the treasure.

“Mr. Rhys, have you prepared to enter the Black Forest?” Emily started the conversation.

“What preparations?” Dustin asked curiously.

“The forest is full of poisonous creatures and ferocious beasts, so it’s dangerous. You should carry antidotes, antivenoms, and other medicines before entering ” Emily explained.

“Things like insect repellents, compasses, and specially designed tents are also needed. They could be life–saving during emergencies.”

Abigail was bewildered. “Do we need all of that? We didn’t bring any.”

They had rushed over, so they only had a few personal belongings.

“It’s more like you’re here for a vacation, not a treasure hunt.” Emily teased.

Then she added, “But don’t worry. I’ve prepared all that for you. We won’t run out of supplies.”

“Really? That’s great! Thank you so much!” Abigail lit up, touched by the considerate gesture.

“However, these supplies are just a small part of the trip since the Black Forest won’t be our main


nale, we need to be cautious of our compenois. Cy stone grew serious.

She glanced at a group nearby. “See those people on the left? They’re from Ironfists and are known for their defense.

“All of them are powerful and claim to be immune to external injuries. We’ll be in trouble if we have to fight them.”

“Ironfists?” Dustin, Abigail, and Azalea turned to look at the muscular men enjoying their meal. The light reflected off their metal–like skin.

“Now, look to your left. That’s Skycrane, a major guild from Yuston.

“They often win battles with their clever tactics. So they’re also formidable opponents,” Emily explained.

“Behind me, you should see a bald man with tattoos on his head.

“He’s a ruthless killer known as the Skullsplitter. Few dare to provoke him.

“And do you see the blind elderly man in front of us? Don’t underestimate him just because he’s blind

“He’s far stronger than he seems. All of them are our competitors, so we must avoid fighting them until we locate the treasure.”

Emily provided detailed insight into the major guilds and powerful fighters. This helped Dustin and his friends avoid potential danger.

Dustin couldn’t help feeling impressed by her extensive knowledge.

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?
