An Understated Dominance Chapter 1966 by Marina Vittori

Aidan raised an eyebrow, commenting, “Let’s be clear-we’re just fellow explorers with our own goals. We’re not allies, and even if we were, why do we have to share both good and bad times?”

Jackson hesitated, momentarily lost for words. It dawned on him that the rumors about Aidan’s unpredictable nature were indeed true.

“Mr. Ridge, state your conditions. If it’s something we can accommodate, we won’t turn you down,” Grace replied promptly. She sensed Aidan’s longing for some sort of benefit.

“Great!” Aidan grinned, impressed by her quick understanding.

He went on, “I can help you in getting out of this situation and guarantee your safety. However, in return, I’d need you to give me the Dragon Rope.”

“What? The Dragon Rope?” Jackson frowned at the unexpected mention. The Dragon Rope could restrain even grandmaster martial artists, making it invaluable. Aidan’s request at this moment appeared to exploit their vulnerable situation.

Hence, the unexpected behavior from such a respected grandmaster martial artist was truly disheartening.

“Why? Are you not willing to part with it?” Aidan spoke calmly.

He added, “Little Miss, the Dragon Rope is just an object. You hand it over, and I’ll ensure everyone’s safety. It seems like a fair trade, doesn’t it?”

“You-” Dustin was about to say something, but Grace raised her hand to stop him.

She turned to Aidan and said, “Alright, you have a deal. As long as you help us, the Dragon Rope is yours!”

“Hehe… Well, you’re one sharp cookie. I love striking deals with sharp individuals like yourself. So, we’ve got ourselves a deal!” Aidan grinned widely.

The Dragon Rope meant a lot to him, and he saw it as a valuable asset for facing tough opponents down the road.

“Mr. Ridge, the ball’s in your court now. “Grace nodded respectfully.

“No need to fret, just a handful of vines. Let me show you how I deal with them!” Aidan confidently declared. As he spoke, his hand swiftly moved to grasp his weapon.

His weapons were the unique crescent- shaped dual blades known for their unusual but razor-sharp design.

“Begone, foul creature!” he yelled. He charged toward the golden vine with his dual blades.

“The Dragon Rope isn’t your average possession. Why are you giving it away? “Dustin expressed his concern.

Despite Grace’s wealth, he knew acquiring such a precious item wasn’t easy.

Grace casually dismissed. “The situation right now is a bit uncertain, so it’s best not to show your cards just yet. Plus, it’s only a Dragon Rope, and I don’t mind letting it go.”

As they had just entered the oasis, she could tell different factions would start competing for dominance down the line.

If Dustin revealed his strength too soon, he might attract unwanted attention from all sides. In the bigger picture, sacrificing a mere Dragon Rope meant nothing.

“Sure, you’re in charge. I trust your plan,” Dustin conceded without further argument. He understood she had a plan, and his role was to assist, not to question every detail.

“Everyone, gather up! Prepare to break through!” Grace, watching Aidan confront the golden vine, quickly decided to instruct the group to form a defensive formation and prepared to charge forward.

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?
