An Understated Dominance Chapter 969 by Marina Vittori

Emily, Nathan, and the rest looked surprised and at a loss. That was Ian Shonde, the great leader of Regalswords and the best martial artist in Lester! A person like him had apologized to them?

Were they imagining this?  “Sir Shonde, you better teach him a good lesson once you return. It’ll be too late if he gets into bigger trouble,” Dustin said.

Everyone was rendered speechless and stared at Dustin in disbelief. Damn it! Has the bastard gone mad?

How dare he openly lecture Ian? Was he not afraid that he’d be killed?

How bold!

“Hey! Do you have a death wish? Shut your mouth!” Nathan was so shocked that he almost cursed at Dustin.

It was good enough that Ian did not blame him for beating Ken. But this bastard was going overboard!

How dare he criticize Sir Shonde in front of so many people? He didn’t know what’s good for him.

“Dustin, apologize to Sir Shonde immediately! Emily signaled at him furiously from the side.

She felt a headache coming due to Dustin’s reckless actions. They had barely escaped danger, and now he was trying to bring them more trouble.

Just as everyone thought Dustin would land himself in trouble, Ian surprised everyone by forcing a smile.

“You’re right, Your Excellency. I will make sure to teach him a good lesson. I promise you this will never happen again,” he said.

Everyone was startled once again. What was going on?

Since when did the leader of Regalswords, the ace of Lester, become so agreeable?

He even smiled at them when someone had just criticized him! They could not believe what was going on!

“Yes, that’d be for the best.” Dustin nodded.

“My apologies for interrupting your meal. We’ll be leaving right away.”

Ian bowed and hurriedly led his men away as if he was running away.

“Phew! We’re safe!” Vanessa sighed in relief once the people from Regalswords left.

“What happened there? Why does Sir Shonde seem so weird today?”

Nathan scratched his head in wonder. Ian’s actions had been bewildering.

“Perhaps Sir Shonde realized that it was their mistake. With many martial artists here, maybe he just chose to settle things nicely.”

That was the only answer Emily could come up with after thinking about it for a long time.

“No matter what it is, the most important thing is that we’re all fine.” Vanessa beamed.

“Hmph! We’re just lucky that Sir Shonde is a reasonable person. We’d be in huge trouble if he chose to make things difficult!”

Nathan folded his arms in front of himself and shot Dustin a glare.

“Hey! I’m warning you! You better not behave rashly in the future!

“I don’t care if you get into trouble, but you better not drag us down together!”

“That’s right! You put our lives at stake with what you did back there!” the disciples from

Azure Mist echoed.

It had been thoughtless of him, an outsider, to challenge the Regalswords in Lester.

“Alright, alright. Cut it out. Ken had overstepped a line earlier on. Dustin’s actions are


Emily tried to smooth things over.

Then, she continued, “It’s getting late, everyone. Let’s head back to our rooms and get some


“We’ll gather early tomorrow morning and set out for the Black Forest.”

“Alright. See you tomorrow.” Dustin nodded and left with Abigail.

Dustin had never been worried about what the Regalswords would do.

Ian was smart enough to apologize. Otherwise, he would have been beaten up.

Outside the hotel, Ian ran for his life with his son on his back. Suddenly, he shuddered.

He ran even faster. He was flustered and not his usual self, which confused his disciples. They even had difficulty catching up with him.

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?
