An Understated Dominance Chapter 895 by Marina Vittori

“Wait!” Nikki came running out and stood between Dustin and Edith. “Can we please sit down and talk things through calmly? There must be a misunderstanding. Please don’t fight.”

“Get lost! This is none of your business!” Edith glared at her fiercely. “Madam Edith, Dustin saved your life today! You can’t repay his kindness with revenge!” Nikki was exasperated.

“Shut up! You’re in no place to speak here!” Edith lost her cool. It was embarrassing for her to be lectured by her disciple.  “Madam Parker, I’m giving you a chance for Nikki’s sake.”

Dustin demanded coldly, “If you break Brittany’s leg, we can all pretend that nothing happened today.”

“Utter rubbish! Why should anyone do as you say? Who do you think you are?” Brittany glared at him.

“Have you gone mad, brat? What makes you think that I’ll take orders from you?” Edith looked at him condescendingly.

“Why?” Dustin stepped forward before confidently saying, “Because I have the original copy of the Jade Maiden Scripture! Is that enough?”

“The Jade Maiden Scripture?”

The crowd was in an uproar when they heard that. They all gaped with greed in their eyes.

The Jade Maiden Scripture was the treasure of their guild. Anyone who could master the moves in the Jade Maiden Scripture could advance at an alarming speed.

“Hey, brat! Is that true?” Edith’s eyes widened, both in anticipation and in doubt.

The Jade Maiden Scripture she had previously gotten her hands on wasn’t complete, as only half of it existed. So, she ended up going to extremes when practicing the moves.

She desperately needed the other half of the scripture to complete her training and ultimately reach the level of grandmaster.

“Of course, I mean what I say. If you break her leg, I might consider letting you look at it,” Dustin


“Don’t listen to his nonsense, Madam Edith! He’s trying to trick you!” Brittany panicked.

She was worried that Edith might act on the spur of the moment and break her leg.

“You can say anything you want, brat. But I won’t believe you unless you show me the scripture.”

Edith’s eyes narrowed. “As long as you can prove to me that you have the Jade Maiden Scripture, I will do as you say and break this wench’s leg!”


“You want proof? That’s simple.” Dustin approached one of the Jade Maiden disciples and took her sword, fastened by her waist.

The sword was unsheathed, and Dustin grabbed at it. Then, he performed a set of sword techniques.

His moves were agile and graceful. The swordplay was fancy but lethal simultaneously.

Those who watched were impressed and shocked by it.

“Do you recognize it yet?”

After demonstrating the swordplay routine, he threw the sword into the air. It landed accurately into its sheath.

“It’s the Jade Maiden sword technique! It really is!”

Edith’s eyes lit up, and her breathing quickened.

The Jade Maiden sword technique was the ultimate move in the scripture. She had had the chance to see her teacher perform it once.

It was profound and unparalleled.

She had never thought that she’d be able to see it again at such a place. It proved that Dustin really had the Jade Maiden Scripture.

“Well, I see that you’ve recognized it. That’s great then,” Dustin said frostily.

“Now, I want you to break her leg personally!”

Brittany paled at his words.

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?
