An Understated Dominance Chapter 1689 by Marina Vittori

Sensing Dustin’s confusion, Glenn explained, “Aunt Alba had a conflict with the family years ago. So, she chose to leave and cut ties.

“After she passed away, my mom and I went to West Lucozia to pay our respects and told your dad who we were. But it seems he didn’t mention it to you.”

“I haven’t been back in ten years,” Dustin said with a complicated expression. The revelation about his mom’s past explained why she hadn’t returned to her home. He decided that once everything was sorted out, he would visit and pay his respects to her as well.

Trying to change the subject, Glenn said suddenly, “Your sword is impressive. Can I have it?”

Dustin, taken aback, asked, “What?”

“It looks like a no,” Glenn said casually.

“Well then, let’s find a chance to have a fight. If you lose, the sword is mine. If you win, my sword is yours.”

Dustin was left speechless. The sudden shift from family talk to suggesting a fight was confusing.

“Don’t worry. I won’t take advantage of your state now. Once you recover, we can have our match,” Glenn assured sincerely.

Throughout their talk, Glenn couldn’t take his eyes off the Celestial Blade in Dustin’s hands. Being a sword lover, he considered a great sword akin to unmatched beauty.

He believed that the more swords he owned, the stronger he became. His admiration for a splendid sword was hard to hide.

This situation mirrored Glenn’s previous encounter with Seth, driven by the allure of Seth’s Dragon Sparrow

Sword. Unfortunately, Glenn hadn’t had a chance to spar with him yet.

Suddenly, a loud bang echoed from the top of Quandary Mountain. After the earth-shaking noise, a bunch of rocks rolled down from the summit.

Luckily, the troops of the Eight Sovereigns had pulled back, avoiding serious injuries.

“What?” The three of them glanced up at the commotion.

On the mountain peak, a spear clashed with a sword. The Inferno Fury Spear glowed red, coloring half the sky, while the Dragon Sparrow Sword shimmered with a golden light, holding its own.

A spear and a sword danced skillfully, their golden and red glows weaving intricate patterns. The two fighters moved with precision, almost fading away in the midst of their exchange.

Glenn muttered, “Seems like they’re close to figuring out who’s winning.”

This was a duel between the world’s top -tier warriors. Once it was over, things were going to shake up, be it in the government or the martial world.

If Alaric won, the West Lucozian monarchy would go down, and there wouldn’t be anyone left to challenge the Dragon Guard.

If Seth came out on top, the Dragon Guard would lose its main support, and the whole monarchy would go into chaos.

So, it wasn’t just about honor. It was like deciding the fate of the whole world.

“Sir, who do you think will win?” Abigail cautiously inquired.

“It’s hard to say. They’re both evenly matched. Nobody can predict the winner until the very end,” Dustin replied seriously.

“But Uncle Seth still has a trump card he hasn’t played. That might turn the tide in his favor.”

“A trump card? What is it?” she asked curiously.

“I haven’t seen it. I just heard Uncle Seth talk about it once,” he said, shaking his head.

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?
