Chapter 37

Ciara’s POV

I stood there stumping my feet angrily on the floor…For once in there I was weak, I felt his clos£ness having an effect on me…

I placed my both hands on the cheeks still unable to breath well…
What was happening to me???Why did my heart beat so fast when Jordan c@m£ so close to me???

I was beginning to feel different…Just thinking of him made me realise how handsome he was…

“Focus Ciara, he is a bad man…”I sl@pped myself so h@rd but the moment I told myself those words it felt like I didn’t mean them.

I just wanted to say them for the sake of feeling better…

I didn’t mind the cold as long as I didn’t have to see him…I should have hated him for forcing a k!sson me..But did he???Or I wanted him to k!ssme…

I was busy thinking about him, ru-bbing my arms so h@rd when I felt a shawl on me…

“What will people think that I don’t care????”Jordan retorted and I froze..

What was he doing there???I needed some time to think straight and him standing beside me wasn’t helping…

“I am not cold…” I stated between closed teeth..

“You can’t fool me, just look at how you are shivering….”

Do I say thank you or let him be???No Ciara, don’t be nice to him. Pl@yit cool..

As much as I tried to remain calm, my knees behaved like cooked noodles..

. One more second beside him and I would fall…

“Excuse me!!!!” I turned around re-ady to run from there when he gr@bb£d my arm and pu-ll-ed me so close to him.

Yes we were at the terrace but the air felt warm and suffocating…

“Till when we will keep running from each other???It was only a k!ss…” He said as he pu-ll-ed me inches closer…His arm was sn-ked around my w@!st ti-ghtly..

“You are my wife and it’s normal for a husband to k!sshis wife…”

I thought I was only a wife on paper….The old me would have put him in his place but the one standing there was just lost de-ep into his mysterious eyes…

They felt home….I wasn’t irritated been in his arms, weirdly I loved it….

“Ciara,are you okay????” His question snapped me back to reality…

“Yes it was just a k!ss…It meant nothing, it’s not like we are in love or something. It was a mistake…” I laughed hilariously…

“So with you st©p acting like a teenage in love when you see me????” He asked and I just nodded…

“Can I go now???I wanna pee…” I shook my legs…
“Okay….”

The moment he freed me from his arms, I ran back to our room in a supersonic speed and immediately locked myself in the bathroom…

“What’s happening to me???”I cried out while I rinsed my face…I didn’t recognise the girl on the mirror..

Who was she???Why was she growing a soft sp©t on Jordan???He ruined my life, I should hate him but lately I don’t un-derstand myself…

Yes, I should sleep before he comes back…
Just as I was walking out of the bathroom, I heard the door knob turning…

$h!t!!!Why did he come back so soon???

I jumped in be-d so fast and pretended to be asleep…

His pacing to and fro the room made me nervous…Can’t he just sleep??? The pacing bec@m£ more unbearable that I threw the duvet off me…

“Jordan, can you just sleep???St©p moving around, it’s irritating…” I yelled…

“I thought you were asleep and this is my room..I can do what I want with it..Even if I decide to burn it down, it’s my room…”

He was back to his old self…That was fast…Where did the sweet charming husband ran away to???The one who couldn’t stand me feeling cold..

“It’s is also my room, I am your wife….” I told him, creating a fort of pillows between our sides of the be-d,”Mr arrogant, I don’t want you stealing k!sses from me tonight. Everyone should sleep on their side of their be-d..”

I was also glad my old self was back…

“Nob©dy places a fortress on my be-d!!!” He shouted as he threw the pillows from the be-d,”If you can’t sleep beside me like a normal lady would then you are free to sleep on the sofa Missy…”

He got to be-d, took a pillow from the side of my be-d and lied on it…

“That’s my pillow???”I cried out only for him to turn the other side…..
“I bought it so I have the say…”

“Foolish man!!!”I whispered beneath my nose…

“I heard that Ciara…”
“Yeah, you were to hear it arrogant mafia…”

The rest of the night, I just kept tossing and tossing..I should probably have my revenge on him..

He needs someone putting him in his place…
But what should I do????

I begun thinking h@rd tapping my chin when an idea popped up…

I slowly stood up from the be-d and ti-ptoed to the closet…I begun ransaking his suits when I felt someone tapping my shoulder..

“Turn around and act all bit-chy…”My subconscious yelled at me but I was paralysed in fear…

“What are you doing in the Arrogant Mafia’s side of the closet????” He ordered…

Dear heavens, make me disappear…plea-se only this one time…
My br@in was basically functionless, I couldn’t formulate any lie…

“Did you want to steal something????”He twirled me around to face me,”You haven’t answered me…”

“What, can’t I go throu-gh my husband’s suits???I have rights you know…”

“Which husband???Do you have a husband???”

How could my idea to teach him a lesson fail???My ancestors why did you abandon me???Now here I am been humiliated..

“Fool!!!” I murmured and walked past him…

“I heard that too!!!”
I stuck my ton-gue out at him before leaving the closet and heading back to be-d…

Few minutes later, he also savoured into the duvet..
“Next time just t©uçh those your things you think are clothes. Don’t t©uçh my designer suits…”He barked and I just made faces inside the duvet…

As soon as the sun rose, I was up and re-ady to go see my friends…I needed a break from all this drama…I couldn’t keep up…

*****
“Girlfriend, I am sorry about all you went throu-gh when we were away…”Jane sobbe-d as she hvgged me so ti-ght like her life depended on it…
“It’s okay atleast now people are more calm and the dust has settled down…” I tried ma-king her feel better.

“Why are you not asking about the juicy details???What did Jordan do???”Max asked excitedly..

“Friend, he walked in and found Jaxon and I talking. Hell broke loose while the begun fighting….”I narrated the whole story to them and Jane looked sympathetic while Max was laughing his lungs out.

“Bae, why are you laughing????”Jane sl@pped his arm…
“It’s funny…Who would have thought the arrogant Jordan can fight for a woman???” Max continued laughing and Jane just shook her head…

“What I don’t un-derstand is why you still chose Jordan???Girlfriend you have the chance to finally be happy…”Jane questioned…

“Have you forgotten about Ariana???”I reminded her…

“As long as they are not married, it doesn’t matter.. You are the one he loves…” Jane replied looking unbothered….

Suddenly she takes my hand and looks at my ring,”Damn girlfriend, this ring is so beautiful and expensive…Bae I want one like this???”

Max scans the ring before replying to her,”Love I am an African man. I get you pregnant and boom we are married…Unlike these interracial men who try to corrupt our values…”

I found myself laughing at that statement because that’s how it works…

“Can you remind me what I saw in such a stingy man????” Jane folded her arms…
“The things he does on you in be-d, is why you are still here…” He win-ked, forcing a k!sson her..

“You ladies continue talking while I freshen up…” He k!sses her once more before going to their room…

“Bae you look bothered…What happened???” Jane asked after she noticed the worried look on my face…
“Jordan k!$$£d me…No, we k!$$£d since then I can’t think straight. He is everything, I think off..” I confessed, looking away…

“Then why are you bothered???He is your husband and you are his wife…”

“My husband???”I laughed,”He only said I am his wife on paper…”

“As long as you have that ring on girlfriend he is yours no matter what he says. You are lucky unlike us who have typical men for b©yfri£nds…”

I stared at my ring, feeling it when it dawned to me I owe him and he owned me…

As long as I had this ring on, I was a Marcias and I wasn’t re-ady to let anyone step on my head..

“Thinking about him????” Jane raised her eyebrows with a smile..
“He isn’t worth my time…” I faked a sad face.

“If you say so but just be careful you don’t fall for him..Let me make us some coffee…”

The moment she stood and walked to the kitchen, my thoughts were back to Jordan..

I remembered how he got me going throu-gh his suits and I just laughed at myself. What was I thinking???

I was dragged from my thoughts with a phonecall from my mother…
Has she heard about the love triangle drama???Is she mad at me????
What If she disowns me too???

“Yes mama???”I stammered…

“How is my girl doing???Mama hears has some good news…”

“What news mama???” I could finally breath properly. She sounded happy…

“I am in Nairobi at your sister’s place. Can you plea-se come and say hello to me???I have missed you so much…”

I know the last place I ever wanna step my foot is in that house but this was our mother we are talking about. I have to swallow all pride in me…

“Okay mama, see you later..Love you..”

“Girlfriend, mama is in town but guess what???” I said sadly and sniffed..
“She is at your sister’s place and she wants you to see her…”

How did she know???Was that obvious???

“How did you figure that out???”

“It’s obvious, she has no other place plus she can’t stay at your house. So what are you going to do????”

“Go and act like I can tolerate that girl even if its for an hour or so…”

“All the best girlfriend, your sister is a female version of a devil. Don’t forget some pepper spray….”Jane commented and we couldn’t help but laugh…

Ciara’s POV

As I approached her ap@rtment, tension begun caving in. Alice and I were two sides of the coin.

How was she going to react when she sees me??? Is she going to be happy or disgusted???Till when should I wait for her to be there for me as a big sister like she should???

I rang the bell the third time before she finally opened the door..

“I thought you wouldn’t come…” She rolled her eyes and paved way for me to get in…

“Why shouldn’t I come to see my mother???”I sneered and followed the sweet aroma upto the kitchen…

There she was my African goddess preparing my favourite, Chapatis…On the counter laid a cabbage, some onions,tomatoes, carrots that seemed were being chopped as the beef meat boiled vigorously on the cooking g@s…

“How is the best mother in the whole world doing???”I wra-pped my arms around her w@!st from behind and rested my head on her back…
Instantly I feel at ease, all the pain and sorrows inside me suddenly went away. My heart felt lighter.
That’s what we call the power of a mother’s t©uçh…

She took hold of my hands and turned around,”How is the married girl doing????”

“Oooooh Mama!!!” I tried fighting my tears but the moment she hvgged me I broke down…

“I am sorry mama for been a bad daughter, I wish you were there as I got married..To have you and dad’s blessings…”

“Why are you crying???You should be happy to see me…” She pu-ll-ed me back and wiped my tears away with her thumbs,”You look so beautiful and cl@ssy

. How does it feel married to a billionaire????” She wiggled her eyebrows..

I wish I could tell her it was hell on earth..I wish I could open up of how I got married, why I got married but the last thing I wanted was my mother angry at Jordan…

Yes at first he was a mean man but off late I don’t know why I don’t want anything bad happening to him…

“He makes sure am happy and he is the best thing that has ever happened to me…I love him so much….”

I know it was a lie but in my mind it felt like i meant it

. What was Jordan Marcias doing to me???

“That explains why you got married so fast!!!”She pinched my cheek lightly and I just laughed…

“Mama, why are you ma-king her think she did a good thing????Dad was disappointed at her…” Alice thun-dered..

“Alice be gentle on her. She is your small sister, she made a mistake. All you have to do is guide her, the mess alre-ady happened…”Our mother replied softly…

“You see, you always taking her side…Mama, she did a mistake???We should all be giving her silent treatment but no, you can’t see your baby hurt….” She yelled, slamming the counter which was situated at the middle of the kitchen…

I was done with her always acting up like a victim…What was her problem????We begun war of words to see who could hurt the other more…

It was like hungry dogs fighting over dominance….

“I bet you married the Jordan Marcias because of his money. Does mum know you had an affair with your husband’s brother????”
Alice was crossing the lines and I didn’t like it….

“Enough, Do you know the hell I have been throu-gh???The torture, sadness with no one there ap@rt from Max and Jane…”I snapped, tears trick-ling my cheeks…

“Dad disowned me, I got married to the most arrogant successful CEO in the country, scandals surrounding me, my name in every one’s ton-gue..Do you think I wanted this????” I asked while I shook her so h@rd,”Why do you hate me so much????”

“I don’t hate you. You just out of character. I will always call a spade a spade not a big spoon…”She dropped my hands off her shoulders,”And st©p acting like a baby, we all go throu-gh $h!t. Its not about you…” She snarled and walked out of the kitchen…

“Its okay baby,”My mother rubbe-d my back soothingly,”What is she talking about???”

“People tried to ruin my marriage mama, they begun spre-ading rumours about me and my brother in law having an affair but it isn’t true..I love Jordan so much and the only thing I ask is for my sister to be there when I needed a shoulder to lean on…” The more I talked the more I sobbe-d…

“Don’t cry anymore, your mama is here…Don’t mind your sister, she is your dad’s daughter…”

Although I was sad that statement made me laugh so h@rd…

“I will go for a walk around the estate Mama to feel slightly better…” I said weakly and she just nodded…

“I hope you are not coming back..” Alice said behind me as I reached for the door knob.

I wanted to turn around, gr-ab her by the hair and teach her a lesson but I chose to ignore…

When I opened the door, I stood frozen with wi-de eyes…
It was Jordan looking all cold and angry…

I could help but throw myself at him for a comforting hvg. I really needed a ti-ght hvg right now….

“Where is he????”He gr@bb£d my arms and pu-ll-ed me back…

“Where is you????” I asked surprisingly…
“The man you c@m£ to see…” He said almost in a loud voice…

“What are you talking about????”

“I know you want to distract me so that he can escape but I will get him…” He threatened and pushed me aside..

Sweet heavens, what do I do???My mama will finally realize he is not the man I made her believe he was….

“Calm down!!!!” I tried to hold his arm but he drew it away like it was on fire…

“Where are you j£rk @ss????Come show yourself???Don’t you know she is a married woman???”He begun shouting like a mad woman in a market place…

“Who has the guts to shout in my house????” My mother asked walking from the kitchen…
If only the floor would open and swallow me alive….
Alice instead of helping me, she was there smiling evilly…
She enjoyed seeing me get embarr@ssed…

“Madam, I respect those older than me. But where is your son???” Jordan asked walking towards my mother who looked all confused..

“Young man, I only have two daughters and they are standing behind you…”My mother replied,”And you are???”

“He is Jordan Marcias, your daughter’s husband…”Alice laughed…

By now, my right hand had covered my mouth. I was so embarr@ssed, how was I going to face my mother now???Think fast Ciara…

Jordan’s POV
Ciara had been acting weird…It was like she was avoiding him…I wanted to hate her, feeling disgusted by the mere sight of her but no I couldn’t…

The more I tried to hate her, the more I fell for her.

. I wanted her always beside me.

At the terrace, I almost lost my grip and told her how much she means to me. That the k!sswe shared was the most sweetest thing that had ever happened to me…

I want to shout on t©p of my voice how much I have grown to love her but I can’t. She loves another and all I can do is admire from afar…

I can never be sweet to her..

When I got home everyone was in the dining table ap@rt from her…

“Where is Ciara???”Granny asked…

“I thought she was home with you guys…”

“No son, your wife hasn’t been here since morning…Maybe she is alluring another rich man…” Mum commented and her statement angered me..

“Mum, I am requesting you respect my wife if you still want to have me as your son…” I warned…
“But……”
“No but…” I cut her off,”She is my wife and deserves respect from everyone in this family. Is that clear???Let me go and pick her up from her friend’s place, I remember she said that. It must have sli-pped my mind…”

I alone had the right to talk Ill about my wife, I alone had the right to look down on her nob©dy else…

I was restless. I hope she is okay, has she eaten???Is she happy????Why do you care Jordan, that girl has nine lives like a cat..

The first place I went to look for her was at her old place…

“Is Ciara here???”I asked Jane the moment she opened the door.

“No, she left hours ago and went…..”
“She went to see her new b©yfri£nd, you know the one who didn’t f0rç£ marriage on her…”Her crazy b©yfri£ndbu-tted in…

“Max???” I saw him, squee-ze her hand not to say anything…

“What b©yfri£nd????” I still couldn’t believe what I heard…

“Yes, she is there right now…Do you want the address???Thieme estate, Suari..House number 15…So it’s upto to you to either go get your wife or divorce her…” He added

When I was about to ask his name, he slammed the door on my face as usual..

Should I go or not??? A p@rt of me wanted to to go and confirm the allegations and another p@rt of me didn’t care.. Was mother right???Was Ciara just there for the money???But how I am the one who f0rç£d her to marry me not the other way round…

My Ciara is a good girl. She would never cheat on me…But why would her friend lie while he hates me so much????How sure am I he is not lying??

Where there is smoke, there is fire..How low can she scope???Did she hate me so much that she had to look for another man???

Is it S-x???We have been married for months now. We have never had S-x but that is not a reason to cheat on me.

I will go to that house and if I find it’s true, I will burn them alive…

I got into the car and drove angrily to Thiema estate…
The more I thought of another man on t©p of her, the more I got mad.
Nob©dy messes with my woman…

I parked my car slightly far from house 15 incase she was standing at the window…I secretly walked towards the house as if I was in a mission….. At the door I wasn’t sure whether to knock or break the door..

Just as I was thinking of it, the door swung open..There was my woman looking all sad…

At the sight of her vulnerability, I forgot that I was mad and wanted to engulf her in my arms..What had happened???Did that man l@yhis hand on her???

C’mon Jordan, ask her what’s wrong???

She threw herself at me, hvgging me so ti-ght. For a second, I was tempted to hvg her back then I remembered she was there to see her b©yfri£nd…

I pushed her back and got in where I created a scene infront of my sister in-law and my mother in-law..

Jane’s crazy b©yfri£ndduped me..He wanted I make a fool out of myself…How could I doubt Ciara???

He was going to pay for this…Ciara is never going to forgive me…

I may be starting a new story soon alongside this one.
