Ciara's POV
I would admit I was slightly jealous that Ariana moved into the mansion. Maybe because I would have loved if Jaxon had fought as hard for me but the milk already spilled..

Each day I got disappointed in him and he kept proving me right that it was the best decision to choose Jordan. But today he acted like a man for her, perhaps he is still the man every girl wants but it wasn't meant for me to experience it...

I don't mean that I wish I had a violent good for nothing but David was no difference . He was also a boy in man's body..

All that matters is Ariana is safe and Jaxon is by her side. After helping Ariana get settled in the guest room,Sophie and I got back to our rooms..

It was 10 o'clock and Caro had told me that Jordan was in his office. That was some good news, for the past few days we were acting weird.

We never spoke or even looked at each other. I guess he felt as I felt...Weird..

I had planned to take a shower and get to bed before he came but destiny had other plans..

Jane called the moment I wore a bathrobe and for an hour or so we just talked about The love triangle saga as people were calling it.

She was on a vacation with Max and I didn't see it fit to bother them. The moment she landed and heard of what was happening,she immediately called me...

"Honey, I will call you back in five minutes

. Let me shower first..."

I ended the call and took a shower like a soldier. Very quick..I didn't want Jordan finding me still up...

After I was done, I wore back my bathrobe and called back Jane...

I walked out of the bathroom confidently only to see Jordan standing there...

I wanted to run back to the bathroom but that was cowardice...My heart was beating so fast that I was afraid it would burst out...

Don't say something Jordan, just walked out of the room and come back after a few minutes. I promise I will be asleep..

I tried controlling his mind like I had seen in the movies but instead he begun picking the dresses from the bed...

Wait did he hit his head???This is not the Jordan I know...

Just tell him, you were not done with the dresses yet..
C'mon he is just Jordan, an arrogant man...

He will just throw the dresses on the bed and that's it.. I thought...

I tried to talk but words were stuck on my throat...All of a sudden I was scared to even speak to him...

Since the kiss, I don't know if I was embarrassed or shy..

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

. He didn't say something to me, he has just being avoiding me. It was like we were playing hide and seek, are we five or what???

But I wouldn't lie when he kissed me, I want to stop...Everything seemed right but was it???

The last time I checked I didn't love him then why were my thoughts hijacked by him since the kiss??? My brain was clouded with his image...

Why was he avoiding me??? Does he feel disgusted???I guess I will never find out and I don't want to find out...

Suddenly I had an idea, yes his phone was in the left pocket of his sweatpants. So if I text him, I would have said what I want to say...

I got out my phone and boom I was trembling. Will it seem rude??? It's not like I am dumb or deaf...

Why do I care??? As long as he gets the message...

>>I am not done with the dresses...

The moment I sent the message and heard his phone ping I looked down...

"Who texted someone at 12am??? Where are their manners???" He said angrily to myself..

Calm down Ciara, everything is okay...

I peeped at him and he seemed shocked..Immediately he begun typing...

Oooooh!!!! God let him be gentle on the insults...

I shut my eyes when I saw him press sent..

>>I am tired and sleepy...That was his reply..

He didn't care what I had just said..You see that kiss was a big mistake now I can't even argue with him...

He was finally done with picking my dresses and threw them at the sofa...Atleast he could have been kinder enough to put them away in the closet..

I really can't deal... I placed my phone on the table lamp and begun walking towards the door when he held my hand...

My heart skyrocketed....I inhaled deeply to calm down before turning to look at him..

As much as I tried, I couldn't. What was happening to you Ciara???

"Before you go, can you put your dresses in the closet???" He asked coldly...

That was it, we were not to talk about the kiss. We have both had s*x in the past, why was a kiss getting to us???

"Just sleep...I don't feel like..Or you do it yourself..." I said still looking away...

Suddenly he just there staring at me, did I have something on my face??? I could feel hot on the cheeks..

Jordan please stop staring at me, I don't know why I am shivering..

"What???" Atleast I managed to stammer...

He furrowed his eyebrows, "Are you blushing??? Why are you not looking at me???"

"What???" I acted surprised..But it was more of a question to me. Was I blushing???

"Why are you blinking so much, biting your lip and not looking into my eyes???" He asked..

I hadn't realised I was doing all that....I tried running from the embarrassment but he grab my arm and pinned me on the wall..
His hands caging me...

"Why are you acting like a child and you are the one who stole a kiss from me????" He retorted...

Wait, what??? Stole a kiss from him but he was the one who kissed me...

"But you are the one who kissed me..."

"You fell on top of me and kissed me!!!"

"Then you kissed me passionately like there was no tomorrow...."

I immediately closed my eyes when I realised what I had blurted out. Now he knows I enjoyed the kiss..

"So you mean you enjoyed the kiss???" He drew close and whispered into my ear..

Sweet mother, I almost fell on my knees...

"Excuse me!!!" I dropped his hand and ran out of the room..

The moment I got to the terrace, I fanned myself with my hand...

What had happened in there??? My head was twirling in a unusual form...

Jordan POV
As Ciara stood there, I wanted to start off a conversation and finally speak about the kiss but I couldn't...

I once in a while slightly raised my head and could see she was also restless.

How was I to talk to her??? Maybe she didn't like the kiss...

You are a man Jordan, how are you scared of talking about a kiss??? Marcias aren't scared of anything...

Just as I was about to speak up, my phone pinged with a message...
Who had the guts to text me at 12am???

Looking at it, It was from her..What kind of childishness is this?? Can't she talk and she is here right beside me..

If this is the game she wants we play and then I am in...

I was ready to play her game but I needed to hear her speak. Even if it's just an insult...I missed her voice..

I know what, let me throw her clothes on the sofa...Wait for it, nothing...
She didn't react..

This is getting out of hand, I have to man up and talk to her. But what do I say???

Suddenly she begun walking towards the door and I just held her hand..What do I say???

Anything that comes to mind...Silly subconscious..

One silly comment let to me talking about the kiss and while at it, I could see her try so hard to be composed..

At first I though she was angry but it slowly dawned to me that I was making her blush...I was finally having an effect on her...

And the fact that she didn't deny and ran out of the room, proved it all..

A/N What do you think about the chapter???Don't forget to give a star...
