An Understated Dominance Chapter 998 by Marina Vittori

“What? Michael Robinson? One of Balerno’s five ultimate grandmasters?” “Neptune! It’s actually Neptune! Holy shit! Why is he here?”

“He’s been in hiding all these years, never getting himself involved in the affairs of the martial world.

“Why did he suddenly appear out of thin air? The world must be ending!” Michael’s appearance caused a commotion among the crowd. They looked at him in awe and  astonishment.

The five ultimate grandmasters of Balerno were publicly acknowledged as the five most powerful

individuals. And among them was Michael, also known as Neptune.

Ten years ago, he had defended Westward Fortress alone. Single–handedly, he defeated three

highly skilled foreign grandmasters.

His efforts prevented many enemy cavalry from entering the country.

He was only one man guarding the city, yet enemies were kept at bay. That was how the battle

made him famous.

That year, when his fame soared, he was appointed a knight. His glorious deeds were still being

recounted and admired by people.

“Mr. Robinson?” Dustin raised an eyebrow, evidently surprised. He didn’t expect to get aid at such

a critical moment.

“Dad, why are you here?” Seeing the familiar figure before her, Abigail lit up.

Since they last parted ways, she thought seeing her father again would be difficult.

“I heard something happened here, so I came over to check.”

Michael turned his head around and smiled. “How are you? You’re not hurt, are you?”

“I’m fine, but these bastards are threatening us. They want to steal our stuff and are even about to

attack Dustin.

“They’re too much!” Abigail ratted them out.

“I saw what happened earlier. Leave it to me.”

Michael nodded and turned his attention to the three grandmasters. His smile disappeared, and his gaze turned cold.

“Three of you are respected figures. Don’t you think it’s laughable for you to bully your juniors?”

“Sir Robinson, this is a matter between us. It doesn’t seem to concern you,” Theodore said with a


The treasure was right at the tip of their fingers. They couldn’t believe it was getting further away

from their grasp.

“Sir Crane, Dustin is a close friend of mine. How do you expect me to ignore it when you bully him?

“Michael said sternly.

“A close friend?”

The three grandmasters exchanged surprised glances but appeared concerned.

It was hard enough to go against Dustin alone. Now, with Michael entering the fray, the tension

was high.

Compared to Dustin, Michael was harder to deal with with his status as one of the five ultimate


“Sir Robinson, do you know he is hiding the Celestial Pearl?” Theodore suddenly asked.

He tried to entice him with the treasure, attempting to create a rift between them.

“So what? He was skilled enough to get his hands on it.

“On the other hand, you guys are just committing daylight robbery.” Micheal roared.

“Hmph! The Celestial Pearl is a sacred relic of the martial world. Everyone has the right to get

their hands on it!

“What makes that brat think he can have it all to himself?” Graham remained stubborn.

“Sir Robinson, the Celestial Pearl is an evil relic. Using it will cause chaos in the martial world.

“The danger can only be prevented by handing it over to me,” Orson spoke solemnly, his hands


“Sir Robinson, the Celestial Pearl is not a personal possession. It should be shared with everyone,

and its use should be discussed.

“Taking it for himself will only lead to public outrage, don’t you think?” Theodore said calmly.

As long as the three were on the same page, they still had an advantage in a three–on–two fight.

“Seems I haven’t made myself clear. Let me repeat myself.”

Michael’s tone grew louder as he spoke, “Dustin has my support! Leave with your people if you’re

smart enough. Otherwise, I’ll beat you into submission!”


His words created a trenzy among the crowd.

“What the hell? Neptune truly lives up to his reputation! He’s so 6061”

“Isn’t he too confident? He doesn’t care about the three grandmasters at all!

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?
