Ciara's POV
From the outside, the house looked very elegant...
The driveway circled past the entrance that is flanked by a pillar and there was a carriage house to park the cars..

I didn't believe that human beings lived there. Talk about gods perhaps...

I walked so uncertain to the door where I rung the bell and I could hear someone running towards it.

"Hello madam welcome to Marcias mansion." A maid bowed down to me.
"Okay, can I see Jaxon Marcias??? He is expecting me.."

"Of course Madam, you must be Ciara Kimani. I will walk you to his fashion studio..."

Wait he had a studio????

I looked around the hallway and I couldn't believe the work of artistry and creativity done on it.

Read " Bloody Fog " by the same author ( Fideh Mwangi )

. The hallway was decorated with antiques and art pieces and it was surrounded by large leaded glass windows  which provided endless views...

It also had a central grand stairway which I believed lead to the other rooms.. I wanted to look around the house to satisfy my curiosity but I had to focus on what had brought me there....

The maid led me to his fashion studio and trust me it was everything I have ever dreamt off..

The North west lights, Blonde wood floor, white walls, fabrics and accessories lying on the table, mannequins waiting to be used, a girl working on some sketch designs...Wow it was a dream come true...

"Love what you see???" A familiar voice asked behind my back...

I could feel my palms getting sweaty, my knees shaking by the thought of working with Jaxon Marcias...

"I...l.....o...v...e...I...t" I stammered turning around to face him.

"You must be Ciara, I have had alot of good things about you..."

He was busy talking and I was busy ogling at him...His body was warm and toned, his rugged features were alluring, he had skin people of poetic bent called cafe or lait, dark brown eyes, hair dyed amber and very perfect height.

. 5 inches 9cm  if not wrong...

"If you done looking at me can you look at the designs???"

I embarrassingly looked down rubbing my forehead," Sure, I would love to see them..."

"So this is Natalie my designer and this is Ciara the celebrity fashion designer I have been talking about.." Jaxon introduced us as we shook our hands...

"Ciara, there are some sketches Natalie is working on. I would love your view on them???"

"Can I give you a hug???" I said it out loud..

"Excuse me???"

"I mean I have wanted to meet you all my life...Like who doesn't love your music. You are like a god, nobody can never beat your voice, your dancing skills and sty...." I suddenly covered my mouth with my hand when I realised I had talked too much...

"I am sorry, I talked too much..."

But Jaxon didn't seem angry, he just looked at me with admiration...

"Come here, let me give you a hug..." He smiled enfolding me in his arms... His cologne and firms arms were enough reason for me to collapse on his arms...

"I bet now you are fine..." I smiled nodding like a fool...

"I think the sketches are fine but look plain. Don't worry I will help you work on that..." I stated in a serious tone ready for real business...

"Okay..." Natalie said with no objection...

"Today we will focus on perfecting the sketches and you showing me the sample of fabrics you wanna use..." I bossed...

"I am glad to have you work for me...I loved what you did on Degi Sodo on his latest single, he looked amazing. I want something better than that..."

"Don't worry Mr Jaxon I got you..."

He smiled and placed his hand on my shoulder,"I will go and continue working on my new song and leave you guys to do your thing..."

"Girl, is there anything to eat here???I am starving..."I turned to Natalie when I was sure Jaxon had left....

"Yeah, there is a fridge in the dressing room..."

"Let's grab something and talk more about each other..."

"What about perfecting the sketches???"

"I can do that with my eyes closed..."I bragged..

"Okay.." She shrugged and we headed to the dressing room...

The lights, two mirrors and the fridge was enough to convince me to work for him forever...

We spent like an hour talking about Jaxon's likes, his first albums, his songs that we didn't realise there was a third being standing there...

"I thought your hair was amber. When did you dye it back to black???"

I wasn't even scared that he found us gossiping instead of working but I couldn't understand how he dyed his hair so fast...

"And did you lose weight???? You had on a pair of skinny jeans and a Gothic vest, why would you change to a pair of plain trousers and a T-shirt you look plain..."

"Hey I am Mason Marcias, the twin to your boss..."

I slapped myself in the brain, fool how could I not remember they were twins... They looked so much alike apart from Mason's hair was black, he was slimmer and he had poor sense of fashion...

"Oooh, nice to meet you..." I smiled trying to ease the weird tension.

"You must be the celebrity designer Ciara, it's a privilege to have you in our house your highness.." He bowed down...

"Trust me working with the Marcias is a life time achievement.."

"I just love the creativity in your designs.. You should probably visit my art studio when you are done here...You may give me some ideas in one or two..."

"I will try..."

We walked out of the dressing room and guess who was infront of us..

Jaxon and Mr Arrogance.....
