An Understated Dominance Chapter 954 by Marina Vittori

Natasha’s peaceful expression was like a knife stabbing Dustin’s heart. He hated himself for causing her to end up like this, and he hated himself for being unable to save her.

If he could turn time back, he would switch things around. “Hang on! Switch?” Dustin  perked up when he thought of something.

He looked at Linden and asked, “Dr. Watkins, do you have any Resurgothorn left? I want to save her by exchanging our lives!”

“Don’t be foolish!” Linden scolded him, frowning.

“Do you think Resurgathorn is food? It’s not readily available.

“Besides, Ms. Harmon sacrificed herself for you. The least you could do to make her sacrifice

worthwhile is to live properly!”

“I don’t want her to sacrifice herself. I just need her to be alive!” Dustin roared with bloodshot eyes.

“I don’t care what I must do and what price I must pay. I just need her to come back to life!”

Dustin begged, “Please, Dr. Watkins. You’re the best doctor I know. Please help me save her!”

He fell to his knees in front of Linden.

“You-” Linden was exasperated and tried to pull Dustin up, but Dustin refused to budge.

After a moment of hesitation, Linden gave in. “Fine. I might as well tell you the truth.

“Although Ms. Harmon is practically dead, there’s still a way to save her.”

“What is it?” Dustin lit up excitedly.

“Technically, Ms. Harmon should have died immediately after absorbing the poison in your body.

But Resurgathorn and Septemortis seem to counter each other.

“So, the effects of the poisons were reduced by half, allowing her to remain alive for so long,”

Linden explained.

“There are two ways to save her. First, you’ll need Phoenixwort. Secondly, you’ll need to find a

“Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to find them, so you shouldn’t have high hopes.” Linden


He would have told Dustin about this if he felt it was achievable, but it wasn’t.

“Phoenixwort? Shadowbloom? Where do I find them?” Dustin pressed.

“Phoenixwort has the power to raise the dead and is a sacred item to the Mystic Arts Order. No outsider has ever seen it before.

“However, you’ll die if you barge into their territory!” Linden warned.

The Mystic Arts Order was the darkest faction in the world. Many formidable fighters were gathered there.

The faction’s current leader was also an ultimate grandmaster. Their leader was one of the most powerful figures in the world and was skilled in all sorts of magic.


person was so terrifying that even Dragonmarsh avoided them.

Dustin might be a young grandmaster, but he was no match for the Mystic Arts Order.

Even Michael, one of the five ultimate grandmasters of Balerno, could only flee when attacked by the Mystic Arts Order.

It was clear that the Mystic Arts Order was a place that terrified all martial artists.

“Then, what about Shadowbloom?” Dustin frowned.

He wasn’t keen on becoming enemies with the Mystic Arts Order.

“Shadowblooms are also known as Flowers of the Underworld. Similar to Phoenixworts, they can also bring someone back from the dead.

“However, this is most likely just a myth.”

Linden shook his head before continuing, “Legend has it that around five decades ago, there was a woman who traveled to the ends of the world in search of the flower. She wanted to save her ill husband.

“However, when she found the flower, her husband died.

“Since then, no one has ever heard from her. There are rumors that she hid the flower inside her

The furrow between Dustin’s brows deepened. “Who’s the woman?”

“Her name is Iris Meskill. Fifty years ago, she was the head of Jade Maiden Sisterhood and an

ultimate grandmaster,” Linden replied grimly.

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?
