Ciara’s POV

I don’t know why but I didn’t want my mother having the wrong impression about Jordan. He might be the worst husband at times but he deserved respect…

While in the kitchen I couldn’t help but overhear his conversation with Alice and Mama. I couldn’t fight the smile, he defended me like a husband would and stood up for me like a friend would.

Maybe he is not such a bad husband after all….
I was happy, my heart was doing somersaults in my che-st…

I felt lighter like helium and wanted to dance like there was no tomorrow

. Off late everything he did had an effect on me…Why was I feeling like this??? Why was he getting to me???

Maybe he just lied to my mama so that she would like him. He said I was only his wife on paper right then why was he been sweet with words????

St©p thinking about it Ciara, he is just thinking about himself.
But why was he here??? Why did he think I was having an affair??? He is always confusing me, it’s like he is bipolar…

He silently did what I told him to as I finished up with chopping the vegetables…

“Jordan, I am done. You can now go to the livingroom and chat with mama and Alice.” I suggested but he just remained silent.

“Jordan, are you deaf????”

“You can go if you want to as for me, I will stay here in the kitchen and cook…” He retorted…

“It’s your wish…Just hand me the cooking stick and move aside…” I gr@bb£d the cooking stick from him and pushed him aside…

“Ciara, that’s mean…” He cried out and I just win-ked at him…Suddenly I felt his arms wra-pped around my w@!st from behind…

“If I can’t help you cook then I can hold you so close to me

. You said I should act all loving and caring…” He whispered s£dûçt!velyinto my ear s£nding shivers all over my b©dy…
I wanted to pu-ll away but I felt home. I felt safe with his arms around me.

It was a new feeling that I couldn’t explain….

“Jordan what are you doing???” I stammered, unknowingly placing my hands on t©p of his…

“Holding you so close…”

I was losing control..My br@in was feeling a little bit fizzy. All of a sudden I begun remembering the k!sswe shared on the bathroom floor.

Why did it feel like the best thing that has ever happened to me????
Control yourself Ciara, he is just teasing you…

“Surprise!!!!” I sl@pped his face with a handful of flour that he staggered back..

“What the fv¢k Ciara????” He cursed and I just laughed while he struggled to wipe it off..

“If I catch you, you are a dead woman…” He threatened as he begun running after me around the kitchen…

“Why are you two so playful????” Mama asked and made us halt…
“Why are you playing like kids???? The food almost got burned up…” She scolded and we just stood there looking down embarr@ssingly…

“Can you two go clean up and I will continue from here???” She ordered and we both nodded like loyal servants…

I thought the game was over until Jordan ran to the counter took a handful of flour and also sl@pped it on my face…
“Now we even pretty face….” He smiled…

“You two are still playing???” My mother lifted the cooking stick threatening to hit us only for me to hold Jordan’s hand and get us out of there…

“That was crazy….” He laughed the moment we got into the bathroom,”Holy bicycle who is this????” He laughed more after seeing his reflection in the mirror…

Since his laugh was contagious, I found myself laughing too…We laughed so h@rd, my head on his shoulder…

Suddenly I realised what was happening and quic-kly lifted my head from his shoulder and he begun rinsing his face like nothing had happened.
That felt weird..Who would have thought Jordan and I would laugh so h@rd together???

“How do I look now????” He asked immediately, he wiped his face dry…
“You look like yourself….”

I wanted to tell him even with flour sl@pped all over his face, he was still the most handsome man in the planet.
What are you thinking Ciara??? he is not that good looking…I tried to convince myself otherwise.

The moment I rose my face from the sink, he handed me the towel…
“Here, I don’t want you to say I am a bad husband….”

“But aren’t you a bad husband????”

“What do you think one can do when married to a crazy wife????”

“Take that back!!!” I ordered as I splashed water on his shi-t…

“I won’t take it back…” He also splashed some water on my face…

“How dare you????” I was almost getting back at him when he took hold of my hand and pu-ll-ed me closer to him,” That’s enough. No more splashing water on each other, is that okay????”

I tried taking my eyes away from him but I couldn’t…He moved his head closer and closer and so did I….

“Jordan????” I called out his name as I rested my forehead on his…
“Yes Ciara????” He replied softly…

“Pl……” Just before I could embarr@ss myself, Mama knocked at the door.

“Come out you two, food is re-ady….” She shouted…

“Let go and eat…” I pu-ll-ed back and headed to the door. Did I just want to plead a k!ssfrom him???? Where is my sanity???

I held the door knob and when I was about to turn it open, he held my hand.
“Ciara, what did you want to say???”

“Nothing….” I quic-kly opened the door and ran out of there…

Jordan’s POV

Immediately Ciara left the bathroom, I rinsed my face once more…

“Jordan, don’t let your emotions control you. What happened now and in the kitchen is just a game. She is pretending…” I told my reflection in the mirror before rinsing my face again..

The room felt warm and suffocating..If only she knew how bad I wanted to k!ssthosel-ips.

. I breathed in de-eply, composed myself and walked out of the bathroom like I own the place…

When I got to the dining table, everyone was waiting for me…

“Finally you are here son, get rid of the apron and come sit next to your wife…” My mother in-law stated and I just nodded doing as told…

Immediately I sat down, Ciara served me food. I was surprised, she has never done that since I can remember…

Why are you surprised Jordan, she is just acting…

“My love is that enough???” She asked, placing her hand on mine…
“Yes darling, thank you…”

Dinner was going on so well until Alice decided to ruin it…

“Jordan is it true Ciara and your brother had an affair right before your wedding????”

I almost choked on my food…Did she have to ask that infront of Mother…

I hated to even think about those two and here she was ru-bbing salt into the still bleeding wounds…

“What are you talking about????” I faked a smile…

“St©p pretending. It was all over the news and websites….” She huffed…

I looked at Ciara and I noticed she seemed unease. If she thought I would snitch in her then she was wrong. I will always have a back…

I took hold of her hand and squee-zed it, “Ciara loves me so much and all that were rumours just to ruin me…She is my wife and people will always target her to ruin me….” I k!$$£d her hand and continued eating…

Since the little conversation between her sister and I she ba-rely t©uçhed her food again…

“My love why aren’t you eating???..” I asked…
“I am not hungry anymore….”
“Okay…..I am also not hungry…” I pushed my plate aside….

I don’t know what I was thinking but I just did it.
Before she could say anything, Alice’s phone rung….

“Why is dad calling me???” She asked excitedly before answering it.

“How is my old man doing???” She asked…They laughed and talked while Ciara just stared sadly at her…

“Dad, will you talk with Ciara??? She co….”
Before she could even finish what she was saying, he ended the call…

“It seems dad doesn’t want to talk to you…” She said arrogantly going back to her food…

Now it was loud and clear, the siblings didn’t get along…

Ciara tried so h@rd to act happy and composed but her eyes were teary…

“Mum is getting late, I think Ciara and I should get going….” I said and all my mother in-law did was nod. It was like she had re-ad my mind, the atmosphere had become toxic for Ciara…

Ciara stood up for the table, took her purse that was lying lazily on the sofa and intertwined our hands…

“Be safe my girl, I love you…” Her mother said while cupping her face,”Jordan take care of my little girl….”

“Yes mama…”

We walked down the estate to where my car was parked, our hands still intertwined…I wanted to hvg her, tell her I was there for her but I was scared she would push me aside…

When we got into the car, her eyes were stuck on the window. She would secretly wipe her tears away and that broke me…

“Ciara, why don’t you get along with Alice????” I asked….

“Jordan we are done pretending. So don’t act like you care, just drive and get us home…” She replied rudely, her eyes still stuck on the window.

“I was…..”
“You were nothing. I am just your wife on paper and that’s it. Don’t ask about things that don’t concern you…” She snapped at me…

I unknowingly swallowed h@rd. Couldn’t she see what I feel for her???? Why was she pushing me aside??? I wanted her to let me in, to share her pain and be there for her….

“Laxima club is still open, do you wanna gr-ab some drinks before we go home????”

“Do what you want Jordan…I just don’t care…..”

“Okay….” It was kinda useless trying to talk to her, she would never open up to me…

I firmly held onto the steering wheel, focusing on the road when her phone begun ringing…
It was Jaxon.

Why would he be calling my wife at 1am?????

The more the phone rung, the angrier I got…..

Ciara just looked at it, letting it ring..Finally he hanged up. When I thought it was over, he called again and she still didn’t bother to turn it off..

It beginning to get irritating and a p@rt of me wanted to throw it out of the window…

“Ciara, If you ain’t gonna pick that phone up then switch it off!!!!.” I ordered the second he called again and she just ignored me….

“Ciara, I am fv¢king talking to you!!!!” I slammed the steering wheel…

“Here,” She threw her phone on my face,”you can pick it too. I bet you don’t have food in your mouth and you can talk properly…”

“What’s wrong with you????” I asked, getting my eyes off the road.

“Just leave me alone Jordan!!!”

We begun arguing and I forgot I was driving.
“Jordan watch out!!!!” Ciara screamed suddenly snapping me back to the fact I was driving.

When I looked what was infront of us, panic took over all my functioning organs.
Sweet heavens, are we going to die????

It was a truck heading very fast and directly towards us honking….It’s bright headlights shone so much, blinding me…

When trying to avoid the truck, I lost control and went off the road the car moving in a zigzag motion….Ciara was screaming, her eyes shut in fear…

I couldn’t let her die like this, we needed to first have babies, grand babies, great grand babies then think about dying…

C’mon Jordan you can do this…

There was a sudden screeching of tyres as I struggled to st©p the car but ended up hitting a tree…Ciara flew forward and hit her head but I was okay…

“Ciara!!!” I shouted as I unbuckled my seatbelt only for her to sl@p my hand away…

Thanks heavens, that was close…
I sighed, calming my nerves when I realised her head was bleeding….

“Ciara, you are bleeding….” I cried out while she gro-an ed in pain.

“Leave me alone Jordan!!!!” She sl@pped my hand, the moment I lifted my hand to check it out…

“You are bleeding and all you can say it’s I leave you alone…” I scolded but she was stubborn.

“It’s your fault we are in this mess in the first place, you can’t drive Jordan!!!” She pushed the door open and staggered out…

What was wrong with her???? Why can’t she just let me nurse her injury????

“Ciara????” I called out, getting out of the car but she didn’t look back.
“Ciara???? St©p!!!! What are you doing????” I ran after her and quic-kly caught her arm before she could take another step…

Her left side of the face was bloody and also her left hand which she had placed on the injury.

. Some drops of blood had also dr!pp£don her T-shi-t.

“What’s wrong with you??? I need to get you to the hospital. You are bleeding profusely…” I stated softly…

“I want to get home Jordan. Let me take a cab home…”

“I am not letting you go until you tell me why are you like this. What has gotten over you????” I twirled her around so that she could face me and placed my hands on her shoulders…

“I am not okay!!!!” She yelled while pounding my che-st with her bloody fist.. She dropped my hands from her shoulders and went to stand in the middle of the road waving at the approaching car.

“Ciara, get out of there!!!” I ordered but it fell on deaf ears.
When the cab st©pped infront of her, she got in and left…

I tried running after it, requesting her to st©p but it didn’t. What did I do that made her so sad??

Did she not care that she left me there with a useless car???? Where was her humanity???I know she doesn’t love me but atleast she can pretend she does…

I reached for my phone and called Sebastian to come pick me up..I took my briefcase and her purse from the car and waited for him by the roadside….

When I got home, I found mother waiting for me so worried…

“What happened???” She ran to me the moment I walked into the hallway…

“Where is my wife????” I asked…

“You are scaring me… Did you two have an argument???” She cu-pped my face…

“I don’t want to talk right now mum!!!” I took her hands together, k!$$£d them and ran upstairs…

If she couldn’t be with me, she couldn’t talk to me atleast I wanted to know she was fine…

I slammed open the door to our room, there was no sign of her. I checked the bathroom and it was okay…There was no stain of blood.

I went to Sophie’s room, neither of them were there. In Jaxon room, neither of them were there…

Where else could she be???? The terrace, yes…

I ran to the terrace only to find her crying on Jaxon’s shoulder, her head all bandaged up…

“I can’t take it anymore Jaxon…” She sobbe-d…

There and then I felt my heart break and the pieces fell on my stomach causing a piercing pain…I swallowed h@rd the tears that were threatening to bur-st out…

For once I didn’t want to fight for what wasn’t mine, I just wanted to retreat. I turned around and dragged my feet to our room.

I am her husband, she should be crying on my shoulder. I am the one who has the right to nurse her wounds, wipe her pain away…

Jealousy was such an ugly feeling and I hated it. I hated Ciara for ma-king me feel like this….

Maybe it was time, I pu-ll-ed back. I was fighting a losing battle and as a wise soldier I had to back out…

I sat on the be-d, my hands on my head…In how many forms is she going to Rio my heart out????

I wanted her to love me, chose me. Is that much to ask???? The thought of losing her brou-ght tears to my eyes that I had no idea when they started trick-ling down my cheeks….

I give up….I was wrong, love is not like a business deal…

Ciara’s POV

I am not okay, I wasn’t okay.
Was it fair to be mad at Jordan???? Yes, he is p@rtially to blame for all the misfortunes in my life…

I was jealous at that girl who is carrying David’s baby, I am jealous because Ariana is with the man I love, I am jealous because Alice is in good terms with dad.

Everyone seems perfect ap@rt from me. I had been dumped, disowned, embarr@ssed and f0rç£d into marriage. What wrong did I do in my past life to deserve this????

I wish I had died when the car hit that tree. Maybe then those who mean alot to me would know my worth.

I know it was immature to leave Jordan behind but I was so mad at him that if he was on fire I rather drink that water…I felt like he was incharge of my destiny, he was the writer of my fate and I hated it.

I wanted to hvg him, tell him what I felt, the pain inside of me but I was only his wife on paper. I never un-derstood him, one moment he is all caring and the other he is angry..I needed him as much as I wanted him away from him.

It felt like he was the drug I needed but I wasn’t willing to swallow….

When arrived at the mansion, the driver didn’t ask for money. I guess he pitied this bloody human being.

I got into the house only to find Jaxon walking in circles around the hallway. The moment he saw me, he froze…

“Ciara, what happened??” He ran to me but I pushed him back and ran upstairs.
The best place to lock myself up would be our room but I just had to go to the terrace….

I was in so much pain but that didn’t matter…
Surprisingly it was soothing….

“Is this the life you have decided to live???” I heard Jaxon’s voice behind me…

“Ciara, why are you doing this to yourself???” I heard his footsteps getting closer and closer, “Where is the tough Ciara who conquered the world without fear???”

I wiggled my eyes not to cry when I felt his hands on my shoulders. His hands there was comforting, it was like a catalyst I needed to break down.

He twisted me around and slowly dropped my hand from the injury…

“What happened???”

“Your brother almost killed us…” I said in a whisper.

“Is he okay????” He asked in a worried tone and I nodded.

“Let me clean this, it doesn’t seem serious.” He said and I just nodded..

“I will be back….” Minutes later, he c@m£ with a bowl filled with water and a first aid kit…

He placed them on the floor and knelt down,”plea-se sit here….”

I s£nt him what looked like a smile and sat infront of him..
He gently wiped my face and the wound…

. I felt the pepperish power of the methylated spirits and pu-ll-ed back..

“I am sorry, I will be more careful…” He blew over the wound and finally covered it with a bandage….

I know I shouldn’t be worried about Jordan but I was. Did he get help????Where is he??? Focus Ciara, don’t care about him…

“Ciara, what happened that led to you two having an accident???”He asked dragging me from my thoughts.

“You happened Jaxon….” I replied dryly….

“I am sorry I called but I was just worried….” He explained himself and I just stood up and walked away from him….

If only he did that two months ago, if only he fought for me then he would have had the right to worry about me.

Why is love so difficult??? Why can I never un-derstand it???

“Ciara, I know it’s wrong but I still love you. How was I supposed to react when I don’t know where you are??? Talk to me, tell me what’s wrong. What really happened???” He twisted me around so that I could face him…

“What’s bothering you???” He took both of my hands, “I am still your friend and you can trust me…”

I sniffed to try and fight my tears but they dr!pp£don my T-shi-t…

“I can’t do it anymore Jaxon. I can’t help but be angry at him , I didn’t ask for it. Why is life so unfair????” I broke down…

“Come here….” He took me in his arms…

“I can’t take it anymore….” I sobbe-d as he rubbe-d my back soothingly..

“I know it’s h@rd but you have to be strong. You have to fight this head on or else you gonna break…” He consoled me…

“If only you fought for me, if you only loved me more then this wouldn’t have happened..

“What was I supposed to do????” He pu-ll-ed back and held me by the arms…

“If you claim you love me then you should have done everything to be with me. You should have fought h@rder…” I stuttered…

“But…..”

“Nothing Jaxon but for Ariana You did everything. You said you love me right but why didn’t you fight for me????” I dropped his hands from my arms,”Why didn’t you???You were just using me right????” I wiped the tears from my cheeks with the back of my hands..

“I love you so much but Jordan had been throu-gh alot. What would I have done????” He asked softly.

“Go to hell, no go to Ariana…” I walked away but I could hear him calling me out…

When I got to the room, Jordan was seated on his side of the be-d looking stressed….

Even though I was still mad at him, I was happy that he was home safe…

“You win Ciara….” He whispered…. “I give up.”
