Ciara's POV
I don't know why but I didn't want my mother having the wrong impression about Jordan. He might be the worst husband at times but he deserved respect...

While in the kitchen I couldn't help but overhear his conversation with Alice and Mama. I couldn't fight the smile, he defended me like a husband would and stood up for me like a friend would.

Maybe he is not such a bad husband after all....
I was happy, my heart was doing somersaults in my chest...

I felt lighter like helium and wanted to dance like there was no tomorrow . Off late everything he did had an effect on me...Why was I feeling like this??? Why was he getting to me???

Maybe he just lied to my mama so that she would like him. He said I was only his wife on paper right then why was he been sweet with words????

Stop thinking about it Ciara, he is just thinking about himself.
But why was he here??? Why did he think I was having an affair??? He is always confusing me, it's like he is bipolar...

He silently did what I told him to as I finished up with chopping the vegetables...

"Jordan, I am done. You can now go to the livingroom and chat with mama and Alice." I suggested but he just remained silent.

"Jordan, are you deaf????"

"You can go if you want to as for me, I will stay here in the kitchen and cook..." He retorted...

"It's your wish...Just hand me the cooking stick and move aside..." I grabbed the cooking stick from him and pushed him aside...

"Ciara, that's mean..." He cried out and I just winked at him...Suddenly I felt his arms wrapped around my waist from behind...

"If I can't help you cook then I can hold you so close to me

. You said I should act all loving and caring..." He  whispered seductively into my ear sending shivers all over my body...
I wanted to pull away but I felt home. I felt safe with his arms around me.

It was a new feeling that I couldn't explain....

"Jordan what are you doing???" I stammered, unknowingly placing my hands on top of his...

"Holding you so close..."

I was losing control..My brain was feeling a little bit fizzy. All of a sudden I begun remembering the kiss we shared on the bathroom floor.

Why did it feel like the best thing that has ever happened to me????
Control yourself Ciara, he is just teasing you...

"Surprise!!!!" I slapped his face with a handful of flour that he staggered back..

"What the f*ck Ciara????" He cursed and I just laughed while he struggled to wipe it off..

"If I catch you, you are a dead woman..." He threatened as he begun running after me around the kitchen...

"Why are you two so playful????" Mama asked and made us halt...
"Why are you playing like kids???? The food almost got burned up..." She scolded and we just stood there looking down embarrassingly...

"Can you two go clean up and I will continue from here???" She ordered and we both nodded like loyal servants...

I thought the game was over until Jordan ran to the counter took a handful of flour and also slapped it on my face...
"Now we even pretty face...." He smiled...

"You two are still playing???" My mother lifted the cooking stick threatening to hit us only for me to hold Jordan's hand and get us out of there...

"That was crazy...." He laughed the moment we got into the bathroom,"Holy bicycle who is this????" He laughed more after seeing his reflection in the mirror...

Since his laugh was contagious, I found myself laughing too...We laughed so hard, my head on his shoulder...

Suddenly I realised what was happening and quickly lifted my head from his shoulder and he begun rinsing his face like nothing had happened.
That felt weird..Who would have thought Jordan and I would laugh so hard together???

"How do I look now????" He asked immediately, he wiped his face dry...
"You look like yourself...."

I wanted to tell him even with flour slapped  all over his face, he was still the most handsome man in the planet.
What are you thinking Ciara??? he is not that good looking...I tried to convince myself  otherwise.

The moment I rose my face from the sink, he handed me the towel...
"Here, I don't want you to say I am a bad husband...."

"But aren't you a bad husband????"

"What do you think one can do when married to a crazy wife????"

"Take that back!!!" I ordered as I splashed water on his shirt...

"I won't take it back..." He also splashed some water on my face...

"How dare you????" I was almost getting back at him when he took hold of my hand and pulled me closer to him," That's enough. No more splashing water on each other, is that okay????"

I tried taking my eyes away from him but I couldn't...He moved his head closer and closer and so did I....

"Jordan????" I called out his name as I rested my forehead on his...
"Yes Ciara????" He replied softly...

"Pl......" Just before I could embarrass myself, Mama knocked at the door.

"Come out you two, food is ready...." She shouted...

"Let go and eat..." I pulled back and headed to the door. Did I just want to plead a kiss from him???? Where is my sanity???

I held the door knob and when I was about to turn it open, he held my hand.
"Ciara, what did you want to say???"

"Nothing...." I quickly opened the door and ran out of there...

Jordan's POV
Immediately Ciara left the bathroom, I rinsed my face once more...

"Jordan, don't let your emotions control you. What happened now and in the kitchen is just a game. She is pretending..." I told my reflection in the mirror before rinsing my face again..

The room felt warm and suffocating..If only she knew how bad I wanted to kiss those lips.

Read " My only addiction " by the same author ( Fideh Mwangi )

. I breathed in deeply, composed myself and walked out of the bathroom like I own the place...

When I got to the dining table, everyone was waiting for me...

"Finally you are here son, get rid of the apron and come sit next to your wife..." My mother in-law stated and I just nodded doing as told...

Immediately I sat down, Ciara served me food. I was surprised, she has never done that since I can remember...

Why are you surprised Jordan, she is just acting...

"My love is that enough???" She asked, placing her hand on mine...
"Yes darling, thank you..."

Dinner was going on so well until Alice decided to ruin it...

"Jordan is it true Ciara and your brother had an affair right before your wedding????"

I almost choked on my food...Did she have to ask that infront of Mother...

I hated to even think about those two and here she was rubbing salt into the still bleeding wounds...

"What are you talking about????" I faked a smile...

"Stop pretending. It was all over the news and websites...." She huffed...

I looked at Ciara and I noticed she seemed unease. If she thought I would snitch in her then she was wrong. I will always have a back...

I took hold of her hand and squeezed it, "Ciara loves me so much and all that were rumours just  to ruin me...She is my wife and people will always target her to ruin me...." I kissed her hand and continued eating...

Since the little conversation between her sister and I she barely touched her food again...

"My love why aren't you eating???.." I asked...
"I am not hungry anymore...."
"Okay.....I am also not hungry..." I pushed my plate aside....

I don't know what I was thinking but I just did it.
Before she could say anything, Alice's phone rung....

"Why is dad calling me???" She asked excitedly before answering it.

"How is my old man doing???" She asked...They laughed and talked while Ciara just  stared sadly at her...

"Dad, will you talk with Ciara??? She co...."
Before she could even finish what she was saying, he ended the call...

"It seems dad doesn't want to talk to you..." She said arrogantly going back to her food...

Now it was loud and clear, the siblings didn't get along...

Ciara tried so hard to act happy and composed but her eyes were teary...

"Mum is getting late, I think Ciara and I should get going...." I said and all my mother in-law did was nod. It was like she had read my mind, the atmosphere had become toxic for Ciara...

Ciara stood up for the table, took her purse that was lying lazily on the sofa and intertwined our hands...

"Be safe my girl, I love you..." Her mother said while cupping her face,"Jordan take care of my little girl...."

"Yes mama..."

We walked down the estate to where my car was parked, our hands still intertwined...I wanted to hug her, tell her I was there for her but I was scared she would push me aside...

When we got into the car, her eyes were stuck on the window. She would secretly wipe her tears away and that broke me...

"Ciara, why don't you get along with Alice????" I asked....

"Jordan we are done pretending. So don't act like you care, just drive and get us home..." She replied rudely, her eyes still stuck on the window.

"I was....."
"You were nothing. I am just your wife on paper and that's it. Don't ask about things that don't  concern you..." She snapped at me...

I unknowingly swallowed hard. Couldn't she see what I feel for her???? Why was she pushing me aside??? I wanted her to let me in, to share her pain and be there for her....

"Laxima club is still open, do you wanna grab some drinks before we go home????"

"Do what you want Jordan...I just don't care....."

"Okay...." It was kinda useless trying to talk to her, she would never open up to me...

I firmly held onto the steering wheel, focusing on the road when her phone begun ringing...
It was Jaxon.

Why would he be calling my wife at 1am?????

A/N Why would Jaxon be calling????
