An Understated Dominance Chapter 1125 by Marina Vittori

Christopher eagerly opened the gift box. But his smile instantly vanished when he saw what was inside. The box contained no precious gift or token of affection but plain white silk. Christopher raised an eyebrow and asked, “Is this the gift you prepared?”

“What’s the matter, Father? Don’t you like it?” Gage remained calm and humble. “Do you like it?” Christopher’s expression grew stern. He exclaimed, ” Look what you gave me!”

He threw the gift box to the floor, where it cracked open, and the white silk spilled out. The guests in the banquet hall were astounded. “What’s going on? Why would anyone give the birthday person white cloth?”

“That’s not a white cloth. It’s a white silk used for hanging.”

“White silk? That’s strange. Why would anyone give that?” “No wonder General Murray was upset. I would be, too. What the hell is Gage thinking?”

Whispers and puzzled looks spread through the room. The previously friendly atmosphere grew increasingly tense.

“Why did you give this, Gage?” Edgar asked with a frown.

“Yeah, Gage! Take it back. It’s embarrassing!” Caden scolded. The gift was an ominous item. It was inappropriate for a birthday celebration.

“It seems Father doesn’t like my gift.”

Gage picked up the white silk and ignored the strange looks around him.

He dusted it off and smiled. “This white silk once belonged to my late wife. I’ve held onto it for five years, always intending to give it to you, Father…”

His words shocked the people in the hall, especially the Murray family. Their facial expressions changed drastically.

The incident from the past had almost become a taboo, and no one dared to mention it. They thought Gage had returned to make amends with his family. No one expected him to reopen old wounds.

“Gage! What is the meaning of this? Why are you bringing it up now?” Edgar scolded. He turned to Christopher and pleaded, ” Dad, please don’t be angry at Gage. He must be drunk.”

“If I don’t talk about it, does that mean what happened then never happened?” Gage smiled. He then added, “Do you remember, Father? Your actions led to my wife’s death. You pushed her to hang herself. You manage to tear us apart for good.”

“So, your return today isn’t to celebrate my birthday but to seek justice?” Christopher was unsure of his son’s motives.

Gage’s smile faded. “Father, if you repent and admit your mistakes, perhaps I’ll forgive you.”

“Gage, how could you!” Edgar burst out in anger, slapping Gage across the face. He said, “Today is Dad’s birthday. You can’t do that. Apologize to Dad right now!”

“Apologize?” Gage laughed. He wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth.

Calmly, he continued, “Christopher Murray was responsible for my wife’s death. He destroyed my life and turned it into a living nightmare. Do you really expect me to apologize to him? Are you serious?”

“Dad did nothing wrong back then. It was all your fault. Don’t be stubborn. Drop to your knees and apologize!”

Edgar’s anger level was rising. He was well aware that things would only get worse if Gage resisted.

“Edgar, you’re as submissive as ever. You’re terrified of Christopher’s glare and tremble in fear. You’re so pathetic.

Gage shook his head sadly. “You… You’re hopeless! I’m going to teach you a lesson!” Edgar was outraged and raised his hand to strike. Suddenly, Gage drew a knife and ruthlessly plunged it into Edgar’s chest.

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?
