Ciara's POV
When I woke up, Jordan and I were tangled to each other...

I don't know why I screamed maybe I panicked, maybe I was confused but he also joined  in jumping from the bed...

"Wait, why are you screaming???" I asked and he paused, looked around and ran his hand through his hair...

"I don't know..."
"Why are we together in your bed??? Yes you took advantage of me..." I retorted...

"My friend do you have s-x with your clothes on???" He rolled his eyes.

..He wasn't even tempted??? My ego is crushed, he should be head over heels for me after seeing what am made of...This gorgeous body didn't just fall from Mars..

"But you were tempted to kiss me, just admit it..." I wiggled my eyebrows..

He remained silent for a while and faked a laugh," I rather kiss a rabbit than you..."

This nigga is good. He is a very good actor . I know I am irresistible...
"So if I kiss you right now, you won't run away????" I stood from the bed and started walking towards him as he took moved back until he pinned himself on the wall...

"Ciara, I need to get to work..." He stammered.

"Just one kiss lovely husband. It's my conjugal rights..." I teased...Seeing him trembling and scared was priceless...

"I think you are still high

. You should go back to bed..."

"Jordan do you like me????" I looked him straight into the eyes and could see his muscles twitch....

"Whaaaaat???" He seemed uncomfortable rubbing his neck...

"You are very handsome...." I began running my hands down his chest to his waist," I would love to kiss you right now.." I whispered into his ear, letting out soft mo-ns...

He pushed me aside and ran inside the bathroom in a lightning speed...

He is an arrogant man and for me to get back at him, I had to use every man's weakness seduction....Jordan I am going to have fun teasing you...

But wait, what about yesterday??? He was there for me when I needed a shoulder to lean on...

Maybe he isn't that bad after all. No, I know it was guilt eating him up, Jordan Marcias is not known to be remorseful....

"Jordan, can I come in we shower together??? I can really scrubbed your back???"

For a moment there was silence, I bet he was collecting himself together...

"I am a man, I know how to scrub myself..."

"But couples shower together love???"

"Ciara, go get some coffee...You are not okay..."

I was really enjoying this, let's see for how long he will be arrogant to me...I am going to make him go down on his knees everytime he is near me.....

But I should tell him thank you for yesterday so as he can see I am now a good wife. What if  he mocks or teases me??? What if he gets all angry and cold again????

My tongue was gnawing on the inside of my cheek...It can't be so hard to say a simple thank you, I do that every time...

Yes I will do it, I bottled up all the courage in me but the moment he got out of the bathroom, looking s-xy, his wet messy hair just perfect  I just went gaga...

"I thought you left to go take breakfast???" He asked looking like his old self. Dear husband that isn't going to scare me...

"I wanted to help you get dressed..."

Hearing that, he almost choked on his saliva...

"Are you sure you are okay???" He placed his hand on my forehead to feel my temperature...
"Why????"
"The Ciara I know drives me crazy, she doesn't even know where I put my suits..."
"On the left side of the closet near your shoe rack..." I boasted...

"No on the right side, near my shoe rack it's where my ties are..."

Were we this distanced???

"But I am a changed woman, willing to be a good wife..." I gave him the puppy eyes and he just stood there his teeth tugging at his lower lip..He wasn't buying it.

"No, you are either sick in the head or her clone...Wait, are you her clone???"

He begun pinching me, squeezing my mouth, shaking me and I just faked a smile...

I didn't wanna react or else all my hard work with go to waste...
"So you have really changed???" I nodded, wrapping my arms around his neck.

"Yeah love and only heavens knows how I want to kiss you so bad...."

I rested my forehead on his and he gently closed his eyes," Ciara what are you doing???" He stuttered...

"I just want us to act like couples. Kiss in the morning, make love at the balcony, sleep in each other's arms..." I whispered, brushing our noses," I want to be a better wife.."

When I was sure his lips were so close to mine, I pulled back...
"Get ready...."

Step one of my mission was successful, leaving him craving for more....

I walked to the door and realised that I hadn't said my thank you yet. But why was it so hard???

"Jordan????" I called him but his body was his functionless after my move...

"Jordan???" I walked back to him and snapped my fingers at his face...

"Yes, don't kiss me...." He said it out loud and slapped his mouth immediately he realised what he had said.

Good job Ciara.... I tucked my lips in so hard not to laugh and tried to put up a straight face...

"Have you seen my phone????"

"No, yes....It is on the left side of the bed on the table lamp..." He replied avoiding my eyes..

"Thank you..." I mumbled beneath my nose...

"Did you say something????"

"No, I am just singing..."

"No, I heard you say thank you..."

"I was singing Thank you, next by Ariana Grande. And why would I say Thank you????"

"Because, yesterday I was there for you..." He grabbed my waist and pulled me to him...

What's is happening??? Don't let my mission backfire on my face..

Ciara don't freak out, just act along...

"Firm arms darling. Too bad you already showered but you can shower again after I make your morning fun????.." I winked and he pushed me back...

"Let me get ready and go to work..."

"But i wanted you scrub my back???"

He ignored me and got into the closet...

That was close...

I brushed my teeth and went downstairs to get myself some coffee...I had a killer headache..

When I walked into the kitchen, I found Pashmina(Chloe's and Mason's daughter) having her cornflakes...

"Hello beautiful princess????"

"Hello aunt Ciara...You promised to read bedtime stories for me..."

I lifted her chin up, "I promise soon I will. Right now Auntie is just a little busy but she will soon." I kissed her on the forehead," Hurry up, so that you don't get late for school."

"Ciara, don't promise what you can't fulfill???" Chloe stated walking into the kitchen and I just rolled my eyes...

"Nanny, take Pashy to brush her teeth before she gets late for school..." She ordered and the nanny nodded taking Pashmina from the kitchen...

"Ciara, very good. You are turning the Marcias brothers against each other..." She clapped her hands handing me the tin of sugar..
"You drink with one of them and sleep with the other..." She continued and I just ignored her...

"How do you do it??? Or you want to turn them against each other so as you can take over the Marcias' properties??? Smart woman..."

"Chloe, are you jealous that you got to marry the boring Marcias brother??? I would teach you how to jiggle brothers but I don't think you would keep up."

"And are you gaining weight???" I pretended to be shocked, faking a sob. "You look fat girlfriend, I don't think they would even look at you twice..."

She wasn't even fat, I just wanted to get on her nerves.

"How dare you....." She tried slapping me but I held her hand.
"Mind your own business and I will mind mine. You don't want me as an enemy..." I sneered dropping her hand...

"You two should learn to get along, you are like sisters now..." Mother reprimanded.
"I will go check on Pashmina....." She walked past her and I followed her but Mother held my hand..

"Yes mother????"
"Dear, what you did yesterday was wrong...I know you and Jaxon are friends but remember you are know married to Jordan...You should start behaving like a married woman...I love my son's and I don't wanna see them fight because of you..."

"I will remember that..."
I walked back to my room, my mind heavy with thoughts...

My love story has stopped being about me and its affecting other people too...I don't want to be the reason that brothers fight...I need to start acting like a wife and stay away from Jaxon. This is my harsh reality for two years plus we already said our goodbyes...

"Jordan, I am going out to see some friends???" I found myself telling him when he got out of the closet...He was also shocked..

"You don't tell me about your whereabouts.."

"I know. I will be at my old place...Let's have a morning selfie so that my fans can see I am a good wife. You know I gained 100k followers just from posting our rings...I am famous..."

He just shook his head adjusting his tie..

I took the selfie with him and surprisingly he smiled....The most gorgeous smile I have ever seen, it made him look more handsome...He didn't even care if I was in my pyjamas and him in a suit...

"You should make it a habit to keep smiling. You have a gorgeous smile..."

Why was I complimenting him??? He will be so full of himself...

"Ciara, make the bed."
I knew complimenting him was a bad idea..
"Why me???"
"You woke up last."
"But you screamed last..."

"Be a good wife like you claim you are.."

He used my words against me now I can't get myself out of this argument...

"Let it breath...."
"But the room is so messy and also is the closet..Your clothes are a mess..."

"Jordan just go to work you bitter melon. Before I squeeze your eyes out..." I barked.

"I thought you said you had changed. And I was right, you are the same crazy girl..."

Wait, I snapped right back to being temperamental. But who can't while having Jordan for a husband??

"I hate you..."
"You wanted to kiss me a while back..."

I knew he would mock me... I growled, pushed him aside and went to the bathroom...

"Be home before seven..." I heard him shout...

****
At my apartment, I felt like home...Max preparing my favourite meat stew and Jane beside him cooking those chapatis I love like a PRO....
Brian, well he was just at the couch been full of himself...

"So my best friend got married in her pyjamas??? Baby we should try that, it's not costly. If a billionaire can do that so can we..." Max begun teasing me...

"Baby it's not funny, we were like prisoners in our own apartment...Jordan is a very mean person. Dear, how is it as a husband???"Jane asked and I shook my head..

"But your love story is crazy. In love with one married to another...How do you survive in that house????" Brian butted in joining me at the counter..

"Horrible and I keep messing up.

Read " Binded by friendship " by the same author ( Fideh Mwangi )

. I am always with Jaxon at the wrong places and fighting with Jordan..Chloe their sister in law is a snake, that house is full of drama. Everyone in everyone's business. I miss you guys alot..."

"Girl, your life is hell of a movie...But we are here for you...."
"I wish I was there that day, I would have beaten those guys black and blue. How can they manhandle my baby and best friend like that???" Max boasted but Jane wasn't ready to let him be full of himself..

"I am glad you weren't there or else you would be six feet under right now. Those guys were thrice your size..."

We tried our best not to laugh but it was contagious...

"One nigga even broke my bedroom door..."
"Tell him..."Jane added..

Max just shrugged and continued to do what he does best cooking..

We had our lunch and sat on the carpet, eating popcorns as we watched the movie everyone is crazy about. Bird box....

"Guys, I want to seduce Jordan until he can't take it anymore???"

"That's my Ciara..."Jane high-fived me..

"Do you know what we go through down there??? It's like you are on fire and can't put it off.." Brian sobbed...

"That's the thing...." I shrugged..

"Ciara just sleep with the brother. Don't tease him, I can't wish that pain on any man..."Max suggested throwing some popcorns on my face..

"Are you telling me to cheat on my husband???" I asked Max and he replied boldly, "You don't love him, he doesn't love you. So what???"

"I will try seducing you one time..." Jane told Max and his reply was savagery.

"This is Africa and I am an African man... I will pin you on the bed and do what you have never seen before..."

"But yesterday he was there for me and it felt nice..." I said in a low tone not sure I had done the right thing..

"Don't dare like him Ciara, make his life a living hell...He pushed me that I almost fell, locked us in our rooms, married you by force. Tease him until he can't walk my sister..." Jane shook me by the shoulders..

"You girls are animals...." Brian shook his head.
"I even bought a red lingerie, it's going down..." I kissed Brian on the cheek, "Do I give you the details???"

"Gross, Ciara...."

We were busy talking about the Marcias brothers that we didn't realise it was late..

"Someone is knocking at the door..." I  muted the television.

"Let me see who it is..."

Max opened the door and the slammed it closed.

"It's your husband..."
"Why did you slam the door on his face???" I asked.

"He locked my baby the whole day. Revenge..." He smiled and sat down like nothing had happened...

What was he doing here??? It seems my charm was working way fast than I imagined...

Did you love the chapter???If so give a thumbs up...
