An Understated Dominance Chapter 2267 by Marina Vittori

After the referee signaled the start of the round, the crowd was cheering and rallying enthusiastically. Most were rooting for Thaddeus due to his formidable strength and put off by Dalen’s appearance.

“Kid, you should just give up now,” Thaddeus said while sipping his drink. ” Otherwise, you’re going to end up with broken limbs once the fight starts.”

He didn’t take Dalen, a guy in his 20s, seriously at all. Thaddeus’ goal was to defeat the top contenders in Group A. To him, the elites in Group B were just stepping stones.

“Father Savier, isn’t it inappropriate for a priest to enter a battle ring against younger opponents?” Dalen smiled and lightly waved his folding fan.

“What’s wrong with that?” Thaddeus countered. “Priests are human too, with the same emotions and desires as anyone else. Those you see claiming to be above it all are just hypocrites.

“Sure, they act pious, but who knows what they’re up to in private? At least I’m honest about my desires. Like they say, ‘live life to the fullest.””

“I don’t agree with your view.” Dalen shook his head and smiled. “Weren’t you once a devoted priest before you broke your vows?”

Thaddeus, an ascetic priest, had endured rigorous physical and spiritual training. Only a major provocation could shake his steadfast faith.

He scoffed. “The past is behind me, and now I see things clearly. I used to be naive and too trusting, which led to unnecessary suffering.

“Now I have awakened to this realization. I’m living comfortably and enjoying life. Life is short. So, why endure hardship when we can enjoy wealth and comfort? Doesn’t it seem foolish to choose otherwise?”

“It seems you have forsaken asceticism for a different path.” Dalen was unfazed.

“True. I’m no longer an ascetic priest. But my skills are as sharp as ever. If you insist on suffering, I won’t hesitate to oblige,” Thaddeus replied coldly.

“In that case, I’m ready to learn from you today,” Dalen said respectfully.

“Hmph! Have it your way!”

Thaddeus raised his flask, took a swig, and spat a mouthful of liquor in Dalen’s direction.

Suddenly, flames erupted from the liquor. It swirled like a living creature and transformed into a flaming red dragon that charged at Dalen.

Dalen smiled faintly. He didn’t dodge or flinch. Instead, he calmly raised his folding fan and waved it toward the flaming dragon.

A powerful gust of wind burst forth. It sliced through the air with razor-sharp blades that tore the flaming dragon into pieces. The scattered flames vanished without a trace.

Their first clash ended in a draw, with neither gaining the upper hand.

“Hmm?” Thaddeus raised an eyebrow in surprise as he watched Dalen neutralize the flaming dragon he had unleashed. He begrudgingly acknowledged Dalen’s skill.

“Again!” Thaddeus declared defiantly. He took another swig of his liquor, then spewed another blast at Dalen.

But unlike the flame dragon earlier, this spray transformed into a swirling icy fog that swept toward Dalen. The temperature plummeted sharply, and it froze everything in its path.

“Oh? Now this is getting interesting,” Dalen remarked. He was intrigued by the unusual blend of fire and ice.

As the icy fog closed in, he remained still. With a wave of his folding fan, he unleashed a powerful gust of wind. A surge of raw energy burst forth, accompanied by a tornado that crashed into the fog.

Crackling sounds echoed through the air like popped corn.

The icy fog crystallized into tiny ice shards that rained like hailstones onto the ground below. In mere seconds, the icy fog dissipated entirely. It left behind scattered fragments of ice in its wake.

“Impossible!” Thaddeus frowned in frustration as his attacks failed again.

The skills he had just displayed were more than enough to deal with most divine martial artists. Yet, Dalen proved a different challenge. He effortlessly neutralized Thaddeus’s every move. It was perplexing.

“Father Savier, resorting to such tactics seems disrespectful for an ascetic priest. If we’re to spar, demonstrate your true skills.” Dalen smiled faintly as he casually waved his folding fan.

His confident and elegant demeanor caused a group of women in the stand to scream excitedly.

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?
