An Understated Dominance Chapter 2167 by Marina Vittori

“The offer from Sacred Wrym Summit sure is tempting.” Dustin nodded in agreement.

Then, he suddenly said, “But I’m more interested in the person in front of me, so I’ll have to apologize to you all.”

Everyone was shocked to hear this, finding it difficult to believe. They couldn’t understand why Dustin would refuse such an opportunity.

They found it baffling. It was an opportunity that could change someone’s fate. Opportunities like this didn’t come knocking often, yet Dustin brushed it off like it was nothing.

They couldn’t help but wonder if he had lost his mind.

“What’s wrong with you, Dustin? Why would you turn down such a golden opportunity?” Miles asked, bewildered.

If it were him, he would be jumping for joy. But Dustin’s refusal seemed to go against the natural order of things, leaving Miles scratching his head.

“It seems Dustin thinks that the value of that assassin leader is higher than the favor from Sacred Wrym Summit,” Dalen remarked thoughtfully.

“What? What value could that assassin possibly have? He’s just a villain,” Ruby dismissed.

“Ruby, things aren’t always as they seem. If that person truly had no value, would Sacred Wrym Summit had their eyes on him?” Crystal said cryptically.

Sacred Wrym Summit usually stayed out of worldly affairs, but their decision to capture Predator hinted at something out of the ordinary.

They suspected that Dustin’s relentless pursuit was fueled by his insight into the underlying reasons behind it.

“Pal, you’re making it really difficult for me.” Caleb shrugged helplessly.

He figured a few smooth words would sway Dustin. Unexpectedly, Dustin was stubborn and had zero regard for the prestige of Sacred Wrym Summit.

Caleb couldn’t help but find it both amusing and infuriating.

“Sacred Wrym Summit has quite the reputation. Surely, it wouldn’t bother with a nobody like me.” Dustin smiled, putting on a humble act.

Caleb replied, “I don’t know about you, but dealing with the old man back home can be a hassle. If we don’t bring this guy back today, I’ll never hear the end of it.”

He scratched his head, seeming to have an idea, then added, “How about we make a bet? Whoever wins gets to take this guy away.

“That way, we won’t damage our relationship, nor will we have to rack our brains. What do you say?”

“What are we betting on?” Dustin asked, amused.

“It’s simple. We bet whether you can move this guy,” Caleb said innocently. He went on, “He’s currently pinned down by my Divine Talisman. If you can move him, you win. If not, you lose.

“Of course, I won’t make it too hard on you. You can ask for help, but you only get three chances. Are you game?”

“Since you’re so keen, I’ll play along,” Dustin agreed.

“Alright, it’s settled then. Go ahead.” Caleb gestured with one hand.

Behind him, two disciples of Sacred Wrym Summit exchanged knowing glances. They were well aware of the power of the Divine Talisman on Predator’s back.

Dustin alone, much less everyone there, couldn’t budge the Predator. Even the two disciples acknowledged that they were powerless against it.

“What’s this little monk up to? Just moving a person, what’s the big deal? Why would he deliberately bet like this? It’s like he’s conceding defeat?” Ruby wondered.

“You’re mistaken, Ruby.”

Miles pointed at the yellow talisman on the Predator’s back. “See that yellow talisman? That’s the renowned Summit Shift Divine Talisman of Sacred Wrym Summit!”

“The Summit Shift Divine Talisman? Is it really that powerful?” Ruby looked puzzled.

As someone new to the martial world, she certainly had some gaps in her knowledge.

“Of course, it’s powerful!”

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?
