Jordan’s POV

Only a miracle could get me out of this mess… I tried to say something but my words were stuck on my throat….

Flames of anger seemed to surround my mother in-law’s eyes….
Congratulations Jordan, you ruined your first meet up with your mother in-law.

If I ever put my hands on that good for nothing thing that Jane calls a b¬©yfri¬£nd, I will break his jaw…

The room was filled with weird silent tension. If only I could disappear.

“Surprise mum!!!!” Ciara said excitedly behind me…

I don’t know what she was doing but I hope it’s a plan to get me out of this embarr@ssing mess..

“What surprise??? That your husband is disrespectful….” My mother in-law furrowed her eyebrows…

“No, that it was all a prank…Right Jordan????” She caught me by surprise…
“Were we????” I asked all surprised when I felt a sharp pain on my arm….

Ooooh!!!! This is where I go with the flow of the story…Damn, that pinch was pepperish..

“Yes, we literally planned all this to prank you…” I stammered…

“Mum, why do you think I lied about going for a walk??? I knew Jordan would come and boom we would prank you on believing he is a bad man…” Ciara explained while intertwining our hands…

I could feel my heart hammering foolishly…..
I could ba-rely focus on what was happening anymore.

All I wanted was her close by me, her hands wra-pped around my n¬£¬Ęk as I pour my heart out..

“You two n@√Ľghty children,” Those were the words I heard before I felt my left ear being gr@bb¬£d…

“How can you two pl@ysuch a prank on me???” My mother in-law asked as she pu-ll-ed both of our ears so h@rd…

I am glad everything was un-der control

. Courtesy of my smart wife..

“Mama, we are sorry…We won’t prank you again…” Ciara cried out…
“Sorry mum, we won’t do that again

. plea-se forgive your son in-law…” I pleaded too and at that moment she freed our now paining ears and hvgged us…

“Be blessed my children, may you always be happy in your marriage….”

Ciara and I said Amen in unison before Mama pu-ll-ed back…

“Mama, I will go and finish cooking. I know you wanna talk with your son in-law more and know him better…” Ciara beamed and walked away to the kitchen.

But why did she help me???? She had the best change to humiliate and embarr@ss me. Why did she not do that???? I was now confused but happy at the same time…

“Son, let your wife go to the kitchen. We can talk as she prepares us dinner…”

Just great Ciara, what am I supposed to talk about with your mother?????? I wanted to follow her but it was too late…

“My son plea-se sit down,” She took my hand and walked me to the sofa, “Some tea???”
I nodded….

“Alice get your brother in-law some tea plea-se and go help your sister in the kitchen..” She ordered.

“Mum, I am tired. Why can’t Ciara just cook alone???? I also want to know more about him too…” The girl who I guess is my wife’s sister gro-an ed….

“Can you shut up and go help her???” My mother in-law yelled that I almost flin-ched. Now I see why Ciara got her temper from…

Alice sneered and just when she was about to stand up, Ciara walked in holding a tray…

“Mama, Jordan loves coffee…He hates milk.” She explained confidently pouring me some coffee…How did she know about this??? She had never served me coffee before….

I couldn’t help but smile at the corner of myl-ips, I loved the Ciara who was standing infront of me…Even if I wanted to look away I couldn’t, I was heart struck….My eyes only danced around her face…

“My love, here is some coffee for you…Food will be re-ady soon, I know you hungry…” She ca-ressed my cheek smiling and all I did was smile too. I was speechless for the time she really called me my love…

I know it was all an act but my heart was pounding like madness….

“Jordan, drink up before it gets cold…” My mother in-law snapped me back to reality..

“So how did you and my daughter meet????” She asked….

Well that was a funny question. If only I could tell her how the crazy mud girl smeared mud on myl-ips after I accidentally made her fall in the pool of mud.

I unknowingly found myself laughing so loud remembering that day earning weird looks from Alice and my mother in-law….

“I am sorry, I got carried away. So me and your daughter meet at my company. She had come to deliver a suit I had ordered and the typical her didn’t knock before getting into my office…I reprimanded her and instead of her being apologetic she spilled the coffee all over my suit. I was mad and the same time amused…I needed that kind of craziness in my life. People feared me but her she didn’t care…”

I know I lied but there was some truth in it. She always comes to my company, she ever spilled coffee on my suit, she never knocks when getting into my office so yeah the story is 20% false…

“That crazy but what can we do if destiny wants us to be together…Did you know that she changed her course and that her father disowned her???” My mother in-law asked before she sipped her tea…

I loos¬£ned my tie trying to think of the best possible answer…Ciara, is a very smart woman. If this was her way of punishing me then she won…

She managed to place me between a h@rd place and a rock. There was no way I was getting out of this one…

C’mon answer Jordan, say No…Just say No..
But how can I say No, I have to stand with her no matter what….

“Mama, I know it was irrational but I believe someone should always do what they love. My wife loves fashion and that’s all that matters. I will hold her hand and support her where I can…About her father, I tried to help solve it but just made him more mad. We can’t f0r√߬£ things but all I can do is be there when she needs me…”

That’s it Jordan…Speak your heart out, your wife might have made some mistakes in her past but she shouldn’t be convicted…

Was I speaking about them or me???? Why am I always convicting her???

I want her to love me but I know that’s impossible. Her heart belongs to Jaxon and Ariana and I are just stumbling blocks…

Although it hurts, I am satisfied with just looking at her from afar….

When I turned to look at my mother in-law, there were tears in her eyes…
“Mum, did I say anything wrong????”

“No my son,” She took hold of my hand, “I am just happy my little girl had someone beside her at her lowest moments. She might act all strong and full of attitude but she still has a kind heart…” Tears trickled down her cheeks..

“I love your daughter so much and if it were upto me I would turn this world up side down so that she never knows pain. That’s how much she means to me…” I @ssured while squee-zing her hand.

“Does that include you getting married to her without her family cons¬£nt and without following the right procedures???? Do you how much shame you brou-ght upon our family??? We were the laughing stock in the village…” Alice yelled, slamming the table…

Jesus, who hurt this lady???? Why is she so bitter???

“Alice where are your manners????” My mother in-law asked calmly…

“Mama, st¬©p praising them. They made a mistake, we should not make them feel like they did a good thing…” She said frustratedly..

I was almost losing my nerve with this girl…

“Mama,” I turned around and faced my mother in-law,”I am half latina, half Kenyan…I am not familiar with the customs and traditions from different communities. I was a guy in love who wanted to make the woman of his life his wife.

. I know I made a mistake by getting married to her so fast, secretly but that’s what we wanted that moment and we didn’t think of the consequences…We are sorry….” I said in a irritatively calm manner…

“You both made a mistake and I un-derstand. All you have to do is fix your errors. No one is condemning you two…” My mother in-law spoke softly as she cu-mpped my face…

“Thank you, let me go check if my wife needs help…”

I stood up and walked to the kitchen…
Ciara was rolling the ball-like shaped dough in a circular shapes before placing it on a h0t pan while humming….

“I didn’t even think you know how to boil water,”I tea-sed her, putting on an apron that was just lying lazily there…

“Jordan what do you want after embarr@ssing me earlier??? If I had the opportunity, I would hit your head with this h0t pan…”

“How was I to know??? That good for nothing Jane calls a b¬©yfri¬£ndlied to me you were here to see your b¬©yfri¬£ndand even gave me the address…” I told her and instead feeling sorry for me, she begun laughing ma-king me feel more silly…

“Mr CEO, since you have your apron on. What do you wanna cook????”

“I am at your service my wife…” I tickled her w@!st that she jumped,” Jordan, do you want to burn me???”

“How was I to know you will jump???” I laughed hilariously…

“I hope you didn’t get it twisted after I called you my love…I just want my mother to think we are this happy couple. So can you act loving and caring just for tonight????”

“Why should I do this???? We both know I can’t stand you.” I lied, my heart jumping with excitement. I thought she would never ask…Yes my love, I don’t need to fake it, what I feel de-ep inside is genuine…..

“So as I can forgive you for embarr@ssing me earlier, Mr Marcias..Or do you want me to cause a scene and make my mother hate you????”

This girl is so intimid@t!ng, the last thing I wanted was three women ganging up against me, “Okay your highness, I will act so loving and charming….”

Jordan this is your opportunity you need to spend time with her. She will think you are pretending hence your feelings are safe…

“Foolish man, you can be chopping those vegetables for me. I am almost done preparing Chapatis anywei….” She said….

I begun chopping the vegetables silently, secretly looking at her once in a while as she continued preparing the Chapatis…

When she was done, she rubbe-d the back of her hand on her forehead unknowingly smearing flour all over her forehead…

I raised my hand re-ady to wipe it off when it dawned at me, I was letting my emotions control me…

I st¬©pped myself, leaving my hand hanging in the air for some seconds…

“Ciara, you have flour all over your forehead…”I said dryly pretending not to care…

“Thank you…”
She wiped the flour on her forehead using her apron, washed her hands and begun working on the stew….

Today there was something different with her, she wasn’t all angry or acting like I wasn’t in the room. For once we actually acted like a couple…

“Jordan p@ss me the onions and garlic you have chopped???”She asked sweetly and I just nodded…

“Do you know how to grate carrots or should I do it???”She confirmed and I nodded again…

She gently poured the onions and garlic on the cooking pan, adding some cooking oil…I was so focused on admiring her cooking that I accidentally cut my f!nger….

“Ouch!!!” I cried out…
“What’s wrong????” Ciara asked and took hold of my hand,”Jordan it’s bleeding,let me get the first aid kit…”

She c@m¬£ back with the first aid kit and walked me to a stool,”Why did you have to act like a super hero??? Look at your f!nger, you are now bleeding…”

I didn’t care been scolded…As long as it meant having her close to me…

She applied the disinfectant on the cut and when I hissed in pain,”Be gentle. It hurts!!!”

“I am sorry, I will be more gentle…” She blew on it before gently wra-pping up an elast¬©plast on it.

I never took my eyes away from her. What was she doing to me??? Why couldn’t I hate her??? I wanted to forget her, let her go but she had become my add!√ßtion.

“Just sit here Jordan, I will manage….” She requested, pouring me a cup of coffee….
“Thank you…” I could tell by the shocked look on her face that she was surprised with my reply…

She got back to chopping the vegetables as she still checked on the both…It seemed like cooking was something she loved to do, her attention was all there…

“Let me help you,” I requested, placing my hand on hers…
I could feel sparks all over my b¬©dy just by tou-ching her…

“But Jordan……..”
“No Ciara, you will be chopping the vegetables and I will be here following your instructions….”

“Okay…..”
