An Understated Dominance Chapter 1137 by Marina Vittori

An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1137

The explosion had thrown the banquet hall into chaos. Some guests had been seriously injured, while others had tragically lost their lives. The hall was now a pile of rubble, with cries of pain, blood, and body parts scattered about.

“Gage?” Christopher’s heart raced as he surveyed the chaotic scene. Disoriented and injured, he ran toward the blast area to find his son.

His desperate search for his son proved unsuccessful, and he found only the dismembered remains of Gage. The explosion left his son unrecognizable, with only a bloody head.

“Gage! Gage!”

Christopher held his son’s mutilated body and wept bitterly. He was overcome with emotion. “Why? Why did you do this? Why were you so stupid? Why?”

He couldn’t understand why Gage had taken such a drastic step and even ended his life for revenge. Pain, regret, anger, and despair overwhelmed Christopher at that moment.

His beloved son was gone, and his promising successor was dead. The entire Murray residence lay in ruins, all because of a woman from five years ago.

Her actions had set in motion this tragic chain of events. She had committed a heinous crime. As Christopher mourned his son, a shadowy figure shot toward him. Amid the cries of pain, it went unnoticed. “General Murray, watch out!”

Dustin, who had seen the danger, shouted a warning. Before Christopher could react, the figure struck him hard in the back. He spat out blood and was thrown several feet before he crashed to the ground.

He had already been injured from the earlier explosion at close range. In addition, the shock of his son’s death had weakened his defenses, leaving him vulnerable to the surprise attack.

“Who… who are you?” he managed to ask, struggling to get up. The attacker had seriously wounded Christopher. He had damaged much of his circulatory system with the palm strike. Plus, his strength had been greatly reduced.

“Hehehe… old friend, it’s been many years. We meet again.”

A hoarse laugh filled the air. Then, a short, stout elderly man in a trench coat and clattering boots emerged from the smoke.

“Antonio?” Christopher blinked at the newcomer, his expression darkening.

So, it’s you, you old dog!”

The newcomer was none other than Antonio, the head of the Bourbon family and one of Kimboku’s top Sword Sages.

“Old friend, we parted many years ago, but I’ve never forgotten what happened. I couldn’t swallow that humiliation, so today, I’ve come to take revenge.” Antonio smiled weakly, and his eyes were icy.

“Hmph! You old dog. Of course, I’d recognize you. How dare you set foot in Dragonmarsh after I broke your legs thirty years ago?”

“Thirty years ago is still fresh in my memory,” Antonio replied softly. “I could never forget that disgrace. Today, I’ve come to seek revenge.”

He chuckled. “But I’m not heartless. I won’t let you suffer alone.

“I’ll wipe out your entire family and make sure your loved ones die with you. How does that sound? Quite an unexpected twist, isn’t it?”

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?
