An Understated Dominance Chapter 1126 by Marina Vittori

A gruesome sound of flesh being cut apart filled the air. Out of nowhere, Gage stabbed Edgar’s chest with the knife. Blood oozed from the wound and dripped to the floor.

“Huh…” Edgar stood frozen, staring in disbelief at the knife lodged in his chest. He never thought his beloved brother would attack him with such ruthlessness.

Everyone in the banquet hall was shocked. Who would have thought that Gage, who had been calm and smiling, would attack Edgar? This was no longer a simple drunken fight.

“You… how could you …” Edgar stammered. He wanted to say more, but the blood gushed from his mouth. Then, his body swayed, and he slumped to the floor.

“Edgar, don’t worry. The blade missed your heart by just an inch. It won’t take your life for now. Just lie still and don’t make any trouble,” Gage said calmly.

He took out a handkerchief and wiped the blood off his fingers. His demeanor was strangely calm, as if his actions didn’t matter.

Christopher was furious. “Bastard! How could you? Edgar tried to reason with you, and you dare attack him? You’re out of your mind! Men, seize this traitor!”

“Yes, sir.” At his command, a group of armed soldiers stormed in. Unfazed, Gage threw the handkerchief onto the floor.

Suddenly, the bodyguards near the wall sprang into action. Their movements resembled those of wild, fierce tigers, nimble and relentless. They pounced on their prey with calculated precision.

Overwhelmed and outnumbered, the armed soldiers stood no chance. They were eventually subdued, one after another. The situation changed in the blink of an eye.

“What?” Christopher was astonished by the sudden turn of events. He hadn’t expected so many intruders at the banquet. He suspected that some guests must have been bribed.

“Gage! Do you even realize what you’re doing? This is rebellion!” Caden’s anger boiled over, and he glared at his brother.

Gage remained composed. “You taught me survival of the fittest, Caden. We can rebel if we have the strength, right?

Caden warned him, ‘You’re playing with fire! Surrender now with your men, or you’ll regret it!”

He thought, “Do you think the Murray residence is some kind of a playground where anyone can cause trouble?”

“Gage! One wrong move, and you’ll regret it forever. Do you have a death wish? You’re causing a ruckus at the Murray residence!”

“As long as there is room for negotiation, you should stop. Turn in your weapons, or face the consequences!”

“Fool! You’re nothing but a fool!”

The Murray family grumbled and lamented their situation. Once a symbol of unity and wealth, the Murray family was now torn and broken. Each member questioned the cost of their actions.

Gage remained resolute. “Look around. I’m in control now, and everything is at my command.”

Caden scoffed, “Hmph! Do you think you can take over the entire Murray residence with just a handful of people? It’s a pipe dream! Men, capture the intruders!”

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?
