An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 718


Chapter 718

“Achoo!” Dustin, who had finally wormed his way out of his predicament with Dahlia, began sneezing the moment he got back to the Flame Dragon Dojo. He wondered if someone was bad- mouthing him behind his back.

“Sir!” Right then, someone called out to him. Dustin looked up to see Abigail standing up from her seat, waving excitedly at him. It looked like she had been waiting for quite a while.

“My apologies, I was caught up with something else earlier on, that’s why I’m late.” Dustin walked up to her with a smile on his face.

“That’s alright, I just got here too.” Abigail wasn’t bothered by it.

“Oh, right, where’s your father?” Dustin looked around but did not see Michael.

“Dad ran into some urgent matters he had to handle, so he can’t make it here. He told me to come here myself. Also, he wanted me to pass this letter to you.” Abigail pulled out a letter and handed it to Dustin.

Dustin opened the envelope and found two objects in it. One was a neatly folded letter, and another was a gold pendant with an ‘R’ engraved on it. After going through the letter, Dustin was certain that Mr. Robinson would not be returning any time soon.

“What did Dad say in the letter, Sir?” Abigail’s curiosity got the better of her.

“Your dad said that he needs to go away for a long time. Probably as long as half a year. But if things get settled quickly, he might be able to come back after a month. He says that you should pay attention to your martial arts training and practice well.” After a slight pause, Dustin continued, “Also, if we were to run into any issues, we can go to Ronald Reeds with this pendant, and he’ll help us out. He’s got a deep friendship with your father.”

“Ronald Reeds? Who’s that? Is he really powerful?” Abigail scratched her head, wondering.

“Ronald Reeds is one of the five ultimate grandmasters of Balerno. Do you think he’s powerful?” Dustin smiled.

“One of the five ultimate grandmasters? Of course, he is!” Abigail’s eyes lit up.

“Consider this a good luck charm from your father. Keep it well. Make sure you don’t ever lose it.” Dustin handed the gold pendant to her. The value of a token from a grandmaster was priceless.

“But Sir, this pendant is a gift from my father to you; you should have it.” Abigail quickly decided

against taking it.

“I have no use for it. Since you’re going to be my student anyway. I’ll give it back to you. Now, you hold on to it.” With that, Dustin stuffed the gold pendant into Abigail’s pocket.

“Thank you, Sir!” Abigail smiled sweetly at him, and then, standing on tippy toes, she swiftly planted a peck on his cheek.

“Hey, kiddo! I’m your mentor now! Watch your manners!” Dustin tried to look stern.

“Got it!” Abigail stuck her tongue out at him, looking naughty and adorable.

“Mr. Rhys…” Just then, a smartly dressed middle-aged man who was slightly paunchy made his

trumped every woman in Dragonmarsh. If word were to get out that she had traveled such a distance to Millsburg just for a man, it would create a significant commotion among the public!

At the thought of that, Dylan could not help but feel slightly jealous. Scarlet was a gorgeous fighter who was beyond everyone’s reach. To be able to get Scarlet’s attention was something worth boasting about. Dylan wondered who the lucky bastard who caught her eye was.

Over in the moving car, Scarlet carefully pulled out a well-kept photograph. In it were a teenage boy and girl, at the peak of their youth. The young girl leaned on the boy’s shoulder, a hint of a smile replacing her usual aloof expression. Looking at the pair of youths in the photo, a look of melancholy came over Scarlet, as though she was reminiscing about the past.

After gazing at the photograph for a moment, she pressed it to her chest and sighed. “Where are you, Logan? I’ve been searching for you for the past 10 years.”

“Mr. Rhys…” Just then, a smartly dressed middle-aged man who was slightly paunchy made his

way in. It was Roderick Brooks, who was also known as Big Bucks Brooks.

“Mr. Brooks, what brings you here?” Dustin smiled at him. “Abigail, go pour Mr. Brooks a cup of tea,

he instructed.

“No need for that.” Roderick raised a hand to stop her as he said with a chuckle, “I’m here to bring you some good news today.”

“What’s the good news?” Dustin’s brows furrowed slightly with doubt. Adam had given him a call and said that he had good news for him too. That turned out to be anything but good.

“You wanted me to keep an eye on the Stoneray Order and to keep tabs on the whereabouts of the 900-year green lotus, didn’t you? We have the results now!” Roderick smiled.

“So? How is it? Were they successful?” Dustin asked with anticipation. As he had no use for the green lotus due to its age previously, he hadn’t bought it back then. But some time later, he heard that the Stoneray Order had purchased it, and Dr. Linden Watkins even had a special method to speed up the aging process. Hence, he got Roderick to get his men to keep an eye on it and verify

if the news was indeed true.

“To tell you the truth, Dr. Linden Watkins had already come out of his laboratory last night, and the 900-year green lotus that he had been working on has already been transformed into a thousand-year green lotus!” Roderick told him what he had learned.

“Great! That’s wonderful!”
