An Understated Dominance Chapter 984 by Marina Vittori

“Go on, pull it out if you can. Dustin didn’t want to waste his breath any longer. He tossed the sword back to its original spot and walked out the stone doors.

There were three stone doors in the stone room. Dustin simply chose one and entered. He didn’t prolong the situation for Emily’s and Vanessa’s sake. Instead, he chose to go his separate way.

After all, it wasn’t like Walter could retrieve the sword. There was no harm in leaving the sword here.

The most important thing was the Shadowbloom.

Once he found the Shadowbloom, he could still return and get the sword.

“Stop right there, punk!”

As Walter watched Dustin walk away, his anger flared. He raised his hand and was about to

deliver a lethal blow.

“Stop!” At that moment, Vanessa suddenly jumped between them.

Walter jumped in fright. Afraid that he would accidentally injure his daughter, he stopped


Ultimately, he watched Dustin and the two others slowly walk into the darkness.

“Stupid girl, how dare you go against me over an outsider? You’re incredibly foolish!”

Walter stamped his foot in disappointment.

How did he raise such an ungrateful child?

“Dad, the treasure is important, but you can’t give up your conscience!” Vanessa said



Walter raised his hand to hit her, but in the end, he stopped himself.

He only had one precious daughter. He couldn’t hurt her.


“Master Chasey, he is gone, but the sword is here. Why don’t we try again?” Emily said


“Hmph! I refuse to believe that only that punk can pull it out!”

Walter gritted his teeth and approached the sword again. Then, he grabbed the hilt with

both hands and tried to lift it.

However, the sword didn’t budge. It reacted differently than it did in Dustin’s presence.

“Useless! Trash! I’ll destroy you!”

Walter tried a few more times, and his embarrassment turned into anger.

Since he couldn’t get it, he wanted to destroy it. He slammed his palm on the hilt of the


“Boom!” There was an explosion.

The sword didn’t move. Instead, an invisible force forced Walter to stagger backward.

Suddenly, blood rushed through him, and his arm went numb.

He couldn’t pull it out nor destroy it. He was about to die from frustration.

After composing himself, he left two disciples there to guard it. Then, he led the rest of the

group through the other stone door.

There was no point in trying. Perhaps there were better treasures inside.

Inside the dim tunnel, Abigail was still upset. “Sir, that old bastard crossed the line. Why

didn’t you teach him a lesson?”

“There’s no need to create additional problems for ourselves. Let’s find the Shadowbloom

first,” Dustin said indifferently.

The sword had already bonded with him. He could summon it anytime, so he wasn’t

worried it’d get stolen.

As they were walking, Azalea stopped in her tracks. “Doctor, there’s another crossroad


At some point, a crossroad had appeared.


Looking into it, they saw that each cave was unfathomably deep. It was pitch black, so they had no idea where it led.

“Why is this place just like a maze? There are all sorts of crossroads.” Abigail frowned,

looking nervous.

If they took the wrong road, would they be in danger?

“Keep walking forward.”

Dustin swept his gaze over his surroundings and quickly found his bearings.

They continued trudging ahead, following the twists and turns of the tunnel. After half an

hour of walking, they saw a bright light.

They picked up the pace. They realized it was a brightly lit burial chamber when they got


The burial chamber was huge. All sorts of lifelike humanoid statues surrounded it.

In the very middle of the statues was a giant bronze coffin.


There were all sorts of strange symbols covering the coffin. It looked like it was filled with

dark energy.

“Sir, don’t you feel like this place is eerie?” Abigail shrunk backward. For some reason, she

felt nervous.

Those lifelike stone statues next to the coffin creeped her out the most. Their cold, beady

eyes seemed to be staring straight at her.

Goosebumps broke out on her skin.

“They’re just statues. What are you afraid of?”

Dustin looked around, but he didn’t sense any living creatures.

“Doctor, there are some writings here.” Azalea stepped forward to find a stone tablet in

front of the coffin.

On the stone tablet were the words, “Disciple of the Jade Maiden Sisterhood; Kowtow thrice before the tomb.”

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?
