An Understated Dominance Chapter 1007 by Marina Vittori

“Michael, you haven’t changed a bit. You only ever show your good side to people. Look at you, you look like you’ll collapse at any moment. And yet, you still pretend like everything is okay,” Ronald said helplessly.

“I heard that you’ve swallowed the Celestial Pearl. Can your body handle it?” he asked. “Don’t worry, Sir Reeds. The pearl is a sacred relic. It won’t harm Mr. Robinson’s body and will  absorb the poison inside. It’ll also help him increase his cultivation level,” Dustin explained.

“Oh, really?” Ronald raised his brows slightly and chuckled. “A blessing in disguise. Don’t you think so, Michael? With this pearl, you’ll have a chance to break

through the ultimate grandmaster level.”

“Let’s just leave it to fate.” Michael shook his head. He said, “The pearl is a valuable treasure. It’s bound to attract a lot of attention. It might bring us quite a bit of trouble in the future.”

“Rest assured, Michael. As long as I’m here, no one can take the pearl away.” Ronald was confident.

Micheal laughed. “Are you going to protect me 24/7?”

“No, you’ve misunderstood. It’s not you that I’m protecting, but the pearl.”

All of a sudden, Ronald thrust his hand into Michael’s abdomen. He forcefully took out the golden.

pearl in his stomach.

His hand was covered in blood and bits of internal organs.


Everyone was stunned. Their eyes widened in disbelief.

Ronald had been chatting happily with Michael just moments ago. None of them had expected

him to attack Michael and rip open his abdomen.

It was such a cruel move!

Looking at the sinister smile on Ronald’s face, Michael was baffled.

Years ago, Michael had saved Ronald when he was in danger. They had become as close as brothers since then.

They set out on the path of the martial world together, forging a formidable reputation.

Michael knew the dangers of the martial world and how unpredictable humans were. However, never once had he suspected Ronald. After all, they shared a deep bond!

“W–Why?” Michael fixed his eyes on Ronald intently. He paid no attention to the large wound on his abdomen.

“I’m sorry, Michael. I’ve wanted the Celestial Pearl for a long time now. I never thought that it’d end up inside you. I have no other choice,” Ronald said bluntly.

He never thought of taking Michael’s life. However, Michael somehow ended up swallowing the treasure.

Ronald had no choice but to kill him to get the pearl.

“You could have just told me that you wanted the pearl. I would’ve given it to you without hesitation. Why did you have to do this?” Michael was in disbelief.

Was their friendship less valuable than the pearl?

“Give it to me without hesitation?” Ronald snorted.

“Michael, do you think I’m a kid? The Celestial Pearl is a sacred relic of the martial world.

“It’s also the main element we need to break through the ultimate grandmaster level. How could you possibly give such a precious item to me?

“The pearl is nowhere as important as our bond. I just don’t understand why,” Michael said bitterly while touching the wound on his abdomen.

Indeed, humans would change over time. Back then, Ronald was an upright man. He hated evil.

After years of not seeing him, Michael never expected Ronald to change so much.

“Michael, I want to be the most respected person in the martial world. I want everyone to bow

down to me! Whoever blocks my path will have to die!”

As soon as Ronald finished speaking, he slapped Michael’s chest.

Michael was sent flying several feet away.

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?
