Ciara's POV
I was still in shock of what had happened in Jordan's office...

I didn't like the direction he wanted my life to take. I couldn't stand him as a human being how would I even think about dating him???

Thinking about the kiss and him made me wanna throw up...He was nothing like his grey and black  themed bedroom which had a king sized bed with table lamps on each side, Recessed lights on the ceiling, a staircase book shelf, a walking in closet with mirrors on its door,  and the unique furniture pieces that complemented the room.

Yes it was a beautiful room for a selfish man...

"Ciara, did you manage to take the measurements???" Sophie asked the moment I got into the mansion..
"No, your brother was busy..." I whispered..

"What??? do you know how much the party means to me???? Nothing can go wrong..I am a very influential being. I host the best parties in the country." She begun being dramatic.

"So what should I do about it???? Yes i went there and found that he was busy. Should I have dragged him by the ear???" I sounded harsher than intended....

"Oooh....."
"Oooh nothing....Here take the tape measure," I took her hand and placed the tape measure on her palm," maybe he will listen to you..."

She looked offended but I didn't care. Real people had real problems and here she was acting like a spoilt brat. Who cared about her silly parties???

Her big brother just proposed to me, I think I like the other and there she was thinking she was the queen of the universe...Foolish girl...

Without looking back, I walked to the studio and found Natalie laughing out loud on the phone, her feet on the table...

In anger, I dropped them down and snatched her phone... I was going through a rough time and it wasn't fair she was happy...

"Did you come here to work or flirt???" I sneered.
"Ciara, what is...."
"What is nothing, we should be working... We are done with the sketches but now we have to design clothes for that spoilt brat's party...."
I run my hands on my face trying to calm my nerves...

"Are you okay???" She asked calmly...
"No, I am losing my mind...." I sat down trying to come up with ideas but I was blank...

I tore paper to paper trying to focus but the dilemma I was in was draining me...

"Ciara, you need a break..."
"No Natalie, we have alot of work to do.. Not only should we focus on  Jaxon looking stunning during his album launch, we also have to cater to the needs of the small sister who nobody wants to say no too..."

"Ciara," She shouted taking the pencil from my hand," go and get some fresh air before you burn this place down..."

"You are right and sorry for the attitude. I am just having a bad day..."

"I understand now go...." She pushed me out of the studio.

Natalie was right, I needed some fresh air before my brain exploded due to the pressure...

I walked to the garden and it's full glory was revealed as I idled past the suede soft flowers...They were tingling my fingers with the nature's electricity as I touched them....

I loved the smell of fresh air. It felt amazing and surprisingly I was so calm until I spotted Jaxon at the end of the garden...

He was laughing like a fool and it bothered me. I only wanted him to laugh like that at my dry jokes...

"Bye Ariana, I love you too..." Those were the words I heard before he ended the call..

Jealousy took over my functioning  organs and I wanted to slap the madness out of him but what right did I have??

I was a mere designer...

"Hey, so you also love the sweet smell from the flowers???" I tried to bring out something like a smile...

"Yeah, How do you look okay??? I thought you would have a killer headache..." He chuckled...

"Was that your girlfriend??? I have never met her. Is she beautiful??? Is she a Latina???"

Once again I crossed all limits. Who cares about a stupid hangover, I wanted to know who Ariana was.

"Is Ariana her name or her pet name???"
I couldn't stop asking....

"Ciara, calm down. I will answer all your questions..."

"Never mind, it's none of my business...."

How was it not my business and deep down I wanted to die...

"But...." I raised my hand and stopped him from talking, "Don't explain. I don't care..."

Luckily he caught my arm quickly before I could get away....

"Ariana is my cousin..."

"C'mon is that the explanation you want to go with..." I rolled my eyes at his statement...

"We can call her if you want too. I wouldn't lie to you...I love my biggest fan..."

My heart skipped a beat and I didn't know how to react...

"You are lying..." I turned away from him...

He reached out, wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me to him...
"I wouldn't do that...." He whispered, his lips barely touching my earlobe...

"Okay I trust you..." I said nervously unable to tame the wild monster in me...
"Thank you..." He rested his chin on my shoulder," So how was your day???"

"Whenever I bump into your big brother, my day just becomes a nightmare...." 

"Don't let him ruin your day. He has just being through alot for the past five years..." He explained twisting me around...

"But with you here, I am fine..." I rested my forehead on his and wrapped my arms around his neck...

"And I will always be here...."

"Do you think we can ever be a couple???" I bottled up the courage to ask the question that  had been haunting me...

Instead of responding, he held my head on his hand  and pulled me into a fiery passionate kiss...
It was full on, open mouthed almost s-xual kiss.

I loved the way our bodies melted into each other.... I bet I got the answer I wanted...

But the kiss didn't last for long as we were rudely interrupted...

"Excuse me guys..." Chloe said making us turn to her embarrassingly...

"Hey sis, I was just getting something from her cheek..." Jaxon gave out the stupidest excuse ever...
"Mason is looking for you...Don't keep him waiting..." She spoke boldly and Jaxon nodded.

"See you around Ciara..." He smiled and kissed my cheek...

When he walked away, I saw Chloe looking me with murderous eyes...

"If you wanna say something, just say it..." I hissed...

"Are you and Jaxon dating???" She shamelessly asked making me laugh...

"Dear miss interrogater, that's none of your business. He is a big boy..." I emphasized as we stood nose to nose...

"If you mess with him, you mess with me..."

"It's evident you don't like me but don't ever fool yourself that I tremble over mere threats..."
I pushed her aside and walked back to the house...

She looked like bad news and I had to be careful not to get burned with a fire I didn't light... But she wasn't important. All that mattered was I was left full of curiosity and passion after our kiss...That meant he also liked me....
