Ciara's POV
I stood there stumping my feet angrily on the floor...For once in there I was weak, I felt his closeness having an effect on me...

I placed my both hands on the cheeks still unable to breath well...
What was happening to me???Why did my heart beat so fast when Jordan came so close to me???

I was beginning to feel different...Just thinking of him made me realise how handsome he was...

"Focus Ciara, he is a bad man..."I slapped myself so hard but the moment I told myself those words it felt like I didn't mean them.

I just wanted to say them for the sake of feeling better...

I didn't mind the cold as long as I didn't have to see him...I should have hated him for forcing a kiss on me..But did he???Or I wanted him to kiss me...

I was busy thinking about him, rubbing my arms so hard when I felt a shawl on me...

"What will people think that I don't care????"Jordan retorted and I froze..

What was he doing there???I needed some time to think straight and him standing beside me wasn't helping...

"I am not cold..." I stated between closed teeth..

"You can't fool me, just look at how you are shivering...."

Do I say thank you or let him be???No Ciara, don't be nice to him. Play it cool..

As much as I tried to remain calm, my knees behaved like cooked noodles..

. One more second beside him and I would fall...

"Excuse me!!!!" I turned around ready to run from there when he grabbed my arm and pulled me so close to him.

Yes we were at the terrace but the air felt warm and suffocating...

"Till when we will keep running from each other???It was only a kiss..." He said as he pulled me inches closer...His arm was snaked around my waist tightly..

"You are my wife and it's normal for a husband to kiss his wife..."

I thought I was only a wife on paper....The old me would have put him in his place but the one standing there was just lost deep into his mysterious eyes...

They felt home....I wasn't irritated been in his arms, weirdly I loved it....

"Ciara,are you okay????" His question snapped me back to reality...

"Yes it was just a kiss...It meant nothing, it's not like we are in love or something. It was a mistake..." I laughed hilariously...

"So with you stop acting like a teenage in love when you see me????" He asked and I just nodded...

"Can I go now???I wanna pee..." I shook my legs...
"Okay...."

The moment he freed me from his arms, I ran back to our room in a supersonic speed and immediately locked myself in the bathroom...

"What's happening to me???"I cried out while I rinsed my face...I didn't recognise the girl on the mirror..

Who was she???Why was she growing a soft spot on Jordan???He ruined my life, I should hate him but lately I don't understand myself...

Yes, I should sleep before he comes back...
Just as I was walking out of the bathroom, I heard the door knob turning...

Shit!!!Why did he come back so soon???

I jumped in bed so fast and pretended to be asleep...

His pacing to and fro the room made me nervous...Can't he just sleep??? The pacing became more unbearable that I threw the duvet off me...

"Jordan, can you just sleep???Stop moving around, it's irritating..." I yelled...

"I thought you were asleep and this is my room..I can do what I want with it..Even if I decide to burn it down, it's my room..."

He was back to his old self...That was fast...Where did the sweet charming husband ran away to???The one who couldn't stand me feeling cold..

"It's is also my room, I am your wife...." I told him, creating a fort of pillows between our sides of the bed,"Mr arrogant, I don't want you stealing kisses from me tonight. Everyone should sleep on their side of their bed.."

I was also glad my old self was back...

"Nobody places a fortress on my bed!!!" He shouted as he threw the pillows from the bed,"If you can't sleep beside me like a normal lady would then you are free to sleep on the sofa Missy..."

He got to bed, took a pillow from the side of my bed and lied on it...

"That's my pillow???"I cried out only for him to turn the other side.....
"I bought it so I have the say..."

"Foolish man!!!"I whispered beneath my nose...

"I heard that Ciara..."
"Yeah, you were to hear it arrogant mafia..."

The rest of the night, I just kept tossing and tossing..I should probably have my revenge on him..

He needs someone putting him in his place...
But what should I do????

I begun thinking hard tapping my chin when an idea popped up...

I slowly stood up from the bed and tiptoed to the closet...I begun ransaking his suits when I felt someone tapping my shoulder..

"Turn around and act all bitchy..."My subconscious yelled at me but I was paralysed in fear...

"What are you doing in the Arrogant Mafia's side of the closet????" He ordered...

Dear heavens, make me disappear...Please only this one time...
My brain was basically functionless, I couldn't formulate any lie...

"Did you want to steal something????"He twirled me around to face me,"You haven't answered me..."

"What, can't I go through my husband's suits???I have rights you know..."

"Which husband???Do you have a husband???"

How could my idea to teach him a lesson fail???My ancestors why did you abandon me???Now here I am been humiliated..

"Fool!!!" I murmured and walked past him...

"I heard that too!!!"
I stuck my tongue out at him before leaving the closet and heading back to bed...

Few minutes later, he also savoured into the duvet..
"Next time just touch those your things you think are clothes. Don't touch my designer suits..."He barked and I just made faces inside the duvet...

As soon as the sun rose, I was up and ready to go see my friends...I needed a break from all this drama...I couldn't keep up...

*****
"Girlfriend, I am sorry about all you went through when we were away..."Jane sobbed as she hugged me so tight like her life depended on it...
"It's okay atleast now people are more calm and the dust has settled down..." I tried making her feel better.

"Why are you not asking about the juicy details???What did Jordan do???"Max asked excitedly..

"Friend, he walked in and found Jaxon and I talking. Hell broke loose while the begun fighting...."I narrated the whole story to them and Jane looked sympathetic while Max was laughing his lungs out.

"Bae, why are you laughing????"Jane slapped his arm...
"It's funny...Who would have thought the arrogant Jordan can fight for a woman???" Max continued laughing and Jane just shook her head...

"What I don't understand is why you still chose Jordan???Girlfriend you have the chance to finally be happy..."Jane questioned...

"Have you forgotten about Ariana???"I reminded her...

"As long as they are not married, it doesn't matter.

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

. You are the one he loves..." Jane replied looking unbothered....

Suddenly she takes my hand and looks at my ring,"Damn girlfriend, this ring is so beautiful and expensive...Bae I want one like this???"

Max scans the ring before replying to her,"Love I am an African man. I get you pregnant and boom we are married...Unlike these interracial men who try to corrupt our values..."

I found myself laughing at that statement because that's how it works...

"Can you remind me what I saw in such a stingy man????" Jane folded her arms...
"The things he does on you in bed, is why you are still here..." He winked, forcing a kiss on her..

"You ladies continue talking while I freshen up..." He kisses her once more before going to their room...

"Bae you look bothered...What happened???" Jane asked after she noticed the worried look on my face...
"Jordan kissed me...No, we kissed since then I can't think straight. He is everything, I think off.." I confessed, looking away...

"Then why are you bothered???He is your husband and you are his wife..."

"My husband???"I laughed,"He only said I am his wife on paper..."

"As long as you have that ring on girlfriend he is yours no matter what he says. You are lucky unlike us who have typical men for boyfriends..."

I stared at my ring, feeling it when it dawned to me I owe him and he owned me...

As long as I had this ring on, I was a Marcias and I wasn't ready to let anyone step on my head..

"Thinking about him????" Jane raised her eyebrows with a smile..
"He isn't worth my time..." I faked a sad face.

"If you say so but just be careful you don't fall for him..Let me make us some coffee..."

The moment she stood and walked to the kitchen, my thoughts were back to Jordan..

I remembered how he got me going through his suits and I just laughed at myself. What was I thinking???

I was dragged from my thoughts with a phonecall from my mother...
Has she heard about the love triangle drama???Is she mad at me????
What If she disowns me too???

"Yes mama???"I stammered...

"How is my girl doing???Mama hears has some good news..."

"What news mama???" I could finally breath properly. She sounded happy...

"I am in Nairobi at your sister's place. Can you please come and say hello to me???I have missed you so much..."

I know the last place I ever wanna step my foot is in that house but this was our mother we are talking about. I have to swallow all pride in me...

"Okay mama, see you later..Love you.."

"Girlfriend, mama is in town but guess what???" I said sadly and sniffed..
"She is at your sister's place and she wants you to see her..."

How did she know???Was that obvious???

"How did you figure that out???"

"It's obvious, she has no other place plus she can't stay at your house. So what are you going to do????"

"Go and act like I can tolerate that girl even if its for an hour or so..."

"All the best girlfriend, your sister is a female version of a devil. Don't forget some pepper spray...."Jane commented and we couldn't help but laugh...

Hey loves, sorry for the delay. I am now okay so more episodes let's get this book done..
