An Understated Dominance Chapter 2246 by Marina Vittori

“Well, thank you,” Dustin replied, annoyed.

He had initially come to cure Alicia, but now he had to fight as well. After an exhausting day of hard work with no reward, he felt completely shortchanged.

“Don’t be so grumpy. Show off your heroic side in front of these two beauties. Who knows, you might win their hearts,” Grace teased in a low voice.

“Yeah, right. These two are nothing but trouble. I want no part of it.” He rolled his eyes.

“Hey! What are you two whispering about?” Shadowcloak couldn’t stay silent anymore and declared, “I’m giving you two options: surrender now, or I’ll kill you.”

“Kill me? You sure talk big.” Dustin stepped forward and stared at him.

He continued, “You might be fast, but your strength is laughable. The guy lying there could defeat you easily if he were a bit smarter.”

“Arrogant brat! What the heck are you talking about?” Shadowcloak snarled.

“Drop the act. You may fool others, but I can see right through you,” Dustin said with a straight face.

He continued, “If I’m not mistaken, you’ve spent decades honing your agility. You’ve mastered it to a level that surpasses many grandmaster martial artists. But unfortunately, you lack strength in combat.

“Sure, you can handle divine-level martial artists with ease. However, when facing grandmaster level opponent, you’d resort to underhanded tactics and intimidation.”

After careful observation, Dustin noted that Shadowcloak’s cultivation was only halfway to becoming a ga grandmaster and hadn’t broken through yet. Despite that, Shadowcloak lacked the strength to match Brian.

However, his key advantage was his remarkable agility, which made him practically untouchable.

It enabled him to adopt the persona of a phantom, striking fear into his opponent’s hearts and forcing them to retreat. Hence, his energy waves’ fluctuation was just a form of disguise.

The reason Shadowcloak drugged Brian was that he couldn’t defeat the man. So, he relied on his cunning tactic to drive Brian into madness and eventually exhaust himself.

“You… You’re just talking nonsense!” Dustin’s words seemed to hit Shadowcloak’s nerve, and he seethed in anger.

He roared, “Bastard! How dare you question my strength? You must have a death wish. Come forward if you dare.

And I’ll crush you with a single strike.’

“Really? I’d like to see what you’ve got. “Dustin scoffed. He was unfazed by the threat as he approached Shadowcloak.

Dustin’s casual approach caught Shadowcloack off guard. Given his earlier skill demonstration, which was on par with a grandmaster, others would have hesitated and felt intimidated.

Shadowcloak had planned to seize that moment to showcase his abilities. But he never anticipated Dustin’s boldness as he advanced toward him.

He wondered if Dustin was simply fearless or had something up his sleeve. Shadowcloak frowned, and he began to waver.

“Hey! Aren’t you going to crush me with a single strike? Well, here I am. I’ll stand right here and let you do it.” Dustin stood with his hands behind his back. His tone was calm yet defiant.

“Reckless fool! Since you have a death wish, I’ll gladly oblige.” Shadowcloak shook with rage. He lunged forward without hesitation and aimed a powerful palm strike directly at Dustin’s head.

With a thunderous roar, a massive, translucent hand materialized from thin air and slammed down on Dustin like a sledgehammer.

Shadowcloak was only halfway to becoming a grandmaster. Although he could easily deal with most divine-level martial artists, he still harbored lingering fear when facing grandmaster -level opponents.

He knew with his agility, he could always escape even if he couldn’t win. So, he attacked Dustin without hesitation.


When he saw Dustin standing his ground without flinching, his murderous intent surged, and his attack intensified. But just as his hand was about to strike Dustin’s head, a protective force field armor suddenly appeared.

Shadowcloak’s full-force strike collided with the force field and exploded. His true energy shadow palm shattered on impact and dispersed into the wind.

He was propelled backward and retreated several paces. His limbs went numb, and he felt a rush of adrenaline coursing through his body.

Meanwhile, Dustin was still standing with hands behind his back. He was unaffected by the impact.

“How is this possible?” Shadowcloak’s face twisted in horror. He was bewildered. Despite striking Dustin with all his might, the man appeared completely unscathed.

“Is that all you’ve got? Pathetic.” Dustin shook his head and eyed him disdainfully. As he had expected, Shadowcloak was nothing more than a hollow threat.

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?
