Ciara's POV
There was something different with Jordan...The warmth in his eyes was no longer there...

I don't know why but I just found myself helping out with the issue involving the minister...I didn't want him ruined..He might be a jerk but he is still my husband...

Did I say husband??? You losing it Ciara...

He did a very good job in convincing the minister that everything was good between us.. Once in a while he would place his hand on mine and i could have this weird feeling...

If not that he would say good things about me to the minister and that made me feel nice . I know he didn't mean them but they had a special effect on me...

"Mr Marcias, I am glad the situation is under control..." The minister stated as he stood from his seat..
"I am a Marcias and we always have everything under control..." Jordan smiled also standing up and i followed suit...

"Thank you Minister for hearing us out. This deal is very important to my husband..."

Why do I keep defending him??? Why can't I control myself???

"Mrs Marcias you are indeed a very good wife, he is very lucky...I will get going, I have a lunch meeting with president..."

Jordan walked right beside me and wrapped his arm around my waist, "No sir, I am the one lucky to have her..." He squatted and kissed my belly, "And the being inside her is the best gift ever..."

He might think he was acting but there was this glow in his eyes when he kissed my belly...It's like he had this urge to be a father....

"I will leave you two now..."

We tried our best to be in our best behaviour but the moment the minister left, the real Jordan was back...

Ladies and gentleman, the cold arrogant man is back...

"Why did you come here???" He drew his hand back...

"Is it not obvious??? To save you from destruction..." I boasted but he didn't care...

"I would have controlled the situation..." He shoved the hands in his pockets tending to pass me and get back to his seat but I stood in his way..

"Why was your secretary with your ring????" I don't know why but I was kinda hurt when I saw the secretary trying his ring on her finger...

"I don't answer to anybody..." He tried to walk past me but I placed my hands on his shoulders, "Are we going back to this road??? I thought we were friends..."

"Ciara, leave my office...I have work to do...Unlike you I have a real business to run..."

He took a step back and looked away...

"I don't know why but I can't do this anymore...This marriage can't work.....It's useless trying to reason with you..."

I couldn't take it anymore...I was the victim, I am the one the Marcias brothers are treating like a ball..

I didn't have to choose him but I did and here he was acting all ungrateful...

He walked closer and closer to me and grabbed my arms, "You are just my wife on paper...From today mind your business and I will mind mine...And you are right, it can never work...There is nothing special about you, you are a gold digger..."

It seemed his words had begun getting to me as slow tears trickled down my cheeks...

He then pushed me out of his office and slammed the door at my face...

"Mrs Marcias are you okay???" The personal assistant asked and I just nodded..

"I really hate you Jordan Marcias..." I said to myself as I walked out of the company..

If only I had a time machine I would go back in time and run away from the Marcias brothers as fast as I could...

I have been called names before but hearing Jordan call me a gold digger broke me..

More than ever, I was sure that leaving the Marcias mansion was not a good idea...

I walked into the mansion and directly went to the fashion studio to pick some of my things...It was time to look for a new job and maybe then I would have the courage to leave all this behind me...

I sat down and buried my head in my palms when I felt hands on my shoulders...The pressing on my shoulders was soothing...

"It feel good..." I let out a soft mo*n...

"You don't have to live with him Ciara...We can always leave..."

Jaxon with his silly ideas again. When will he ever grow up...

"Leave me!!!" I slapped his hands off my shoulders...I stood up from the chair and turned around to face him..

"Jaxon, just grow up will you??? I can't leave if not for myself then for my career...Stop being stubborn..." I snapped at him..

I was ready to walk away when he held my arm, "Are you falling for him Ciara????"

Me falling for Jordan??? Even if he was the last man on the planet, never...

"Jaxon, I don't have to explain myself..." I tried to shake my hand off his grip but all in vain..

He pulled me closer to him and wrapped his arm around my waist, "What are you doing???" I stammered...

"Ssssh!!!!" He begun c*ressing my cheek, "Ciara you are like a drug that I can't live without...

I was feeling weak on my knees...I hungrily wanted to kiss those lips...I was almost giving in...

"Jaxon, I am a married woman..." I cried out but he chose to ignore me and reached out for my dress lifting it up...

His hands moved up to my waist that I trembled and tried to pull back but I couldn't...

"Ciara, I want to remind you of whom you love...It's me my love..." He whispered to my ear that I shivered...

Yes I loved him but this wasn't the way to go...

"Jaxon, let me go...What if someone sees us???" I tried reasoning with him but all he did was trail kisses down my collarbone....

"Jaxon I am begging you..." I sobbed but it feel on deaf ears...

He lifted me up and as a fool I wrapped my legs around his waist..

"Now you are cooperating..." He beamed pinning me on the wall," You need to get pregnant if you want Jordan to leave us alone.."

Now this son of a mother had lost it...Did he want Jordan to bury both of us alive???

"Jaxon leave me!!!" I ordered and bit his ear that he had no choice than to drop me...

"Are you crazy???" He staggered back while touching his ear...If that wasn't enough, he didn't see the slap coming...

For a moment I wasn't sure if I loved him or felt disgusted...Instead of helping me out, he chose to make things worse...

"Jaxon, if you ever come an inch close to me I will kill you..." I warned and all he did was stare at me shockingly..

"Don't look at me as if you have seen a ghost, I will pluck those eyes out

. If you loved me as you claim you would have stopped the wedding..Stop acting all laviedavey right now...Fool..."

It actually felt right telling him those words...He wasn't worth my love...Him and David on one side, he pushed me to this misery and I won't let him to also ruin my life...

If I need to survive in this house, I have to face my enemies head on...

I walked out of the Fashion studio and bumped into the mother of all snakes...

"Well well, if it's not the most hated person in the country right now???"

I looked around to see if there was anybody around there, Ooooh!!!She was speaking to me...

"Chloe, I don't have the strength to argue with you right now..."

"How can you have the strength to argue while you looking for tactics to trap the Marcias brothers???"

She was beginning to get on my nerves..

"Lucky me, I have two...What about you, the only one you have is a pain in the neck..Always drinking, coming home late..Poor girl, do you need a hug???"

She raised her hand to slap me but I held it in mid air..

"Chloe, don't bite more than you can chew. I am watching you..." I brushed my shoulders with her and continued with my business...

I missed my family, girl talks with my mother and funny thing I also missed my big sister...I needed a hug, some motivation to keep going since all of this was draining me...

It had been long since I had a bubble bath in the bathtub...I needed to sooth myself and let go of all negativity...

I removed my clothes and wrapped a white towel on my body when my phone begun ringing...

Truly the devil was at work, it was David...

"What do you want????" I yelled...

"Ciara Kimani making the Marcias brothers turn against each other...How is my favourite ex doing???".

His favourite ex??? My goodness what drug is this good for nothing high on???

"I don't think it's your business...Why did you call or you joined the gossip mongers association???"

"Don't dare insult me Ciara...I made you..." He snarled..

"Who made who??? Nigga have a good look at yourself...i am now a Mrs Marcias and I just need to make one phone call to ruin you..." I boasted..

"I don't wanna fight with you...I just really miss you..Can we have coffee....."

Before he completed his sentence, I hanged up..
I know he just needed cheap publicity...

What kind of guys do I fall for like seriously???

A/N How was the chapter so far?????
