An Understated Dominance 

by Marina Vittori
Chapter 125

“You’re hopeless.” James thought he was looking at an idiot.

“What on earth are you up to?” Dahlia also frowned at the scene.

She really could not understand his outrageous behavior.

Ignoring the crowd’s gazes, Dustin reached down to the shattered Luminianth Root and started to search for something.

Soon, a crimson red, finger–sized Luminianth Root appeared.

This small and delicate Luminianth Root was red as blood. It was even emanating an odd smell.

One could tell that it was no ordinary item.

“That’s odd, how could there be a smaller Luminianth Root?” Ruth was confused.

“Is it possible for Luminianth Root to give birth?”

At that moment, Mr. Walter seemed to realize something and exclaimed. “No–no way! Could it be—that’s a Blood Luminianth Root?!”

Everyone in the room went wild at his statement.

“What? Blood Luminianth Root? Mr. Walter, you’re not kidding, are you?!”

“That’s right. I’ve seen it in a book, this is truly a Blood Luminianth Root!”

“Oh my God! I can’t believe that I get to see a Blood Luminianth Root with my own eyes! How exciting!”

The crowd broke into a discussion.

Some were surprised, others were envious.

“Wait! What’s a Blood Luminianth Root?” Ruth looked around, not understanding what was going on.

“Blood Luminianth Root is also one of the Luminianth Root variants. However, it is more precious and rarer than a normal Luminianth Root! You could say that it’s the King of Luminianth Roots! It is an invaluable treasure!” Mr. Walter gulped, looking elated.

“Invaluable treasure? Then how much would it cost?” Ruth asked out of curiosity.

“Blood Lurninianth Root is extremely valuable. If I were to auction it, it would cost more than ten billion dollars!” The words from Mr. Walter’s mouth shocked everyone in the room.

“What? Ten billion?!”

Everyone could not believe what he just said.

This was an amount that none of them could afford even if they had sold all their possessions!

“How–how could it be? This tiny thing is worth ten billion dollars?” Florence’s eyes widened in disbelief.

“Ten billion is just the reserve price. If it were really to be auctioned, it might even be higher!” Mr. Walter exclaimed.

His words drained the last bit of color from Florence’s face.

This Blood Luminianth Root was hers. Yet, she sold it out for five million dollars. From ten billion to five million. dollars…

The difference was just too big!

“How could this happen? No! This can’t be!”

At that moment, Julie and the rest were in shock, unable to accept the situation.

Who would’ve thought that a Blood Luminianth Root could be found inside a wilted Luminianth Root?

“Dustin, my man! I can’t believe you’re so lucky! You managed to discover a Blood Luminianth Root. These five million dollars were well spent!” Ruth burst out laughing.

Even for someone like her, she had never seen anything that was worth ten billion dollars.

“You! Thanks for your sacrifice, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to get our hands on such a valuable treasure. To be fair, this was supposed to be yours. What a shame, you guys weren’t able to recognize the value of it. Thanks to your losses, we’re able to get it for such a cheap price! Ten billion dollars! How wonderful!” Ruth shook her head and sighed.

Her words pierced into their hearts.

Julie and Florence turned red in anger, looking as if they had fallen into a pool of mud.

That was a treasure worth ten billion dollars!

Because of a small mistake, they gave it away to them.

They were really down on their luck!
