Jordan's POV
The more the phone rung, the angrier I got.....

Ciara  just looked at it, letting it ring..Finally he hanged up. When I thought it was over, he called again and she still didn't bother to turn it off..

It beginning to get irritating and  a part of me wanted to throw it out of the window...

"Ciara, If you ain't gonna pick that phone up then switch it off!!!!." I ordered the second he called again  and she just ignored me....

"Ciara, I am f*cking talking to you!!!!" I slammed the steering wheel...

"Here," She threw her phone on my face,"you can pick it too. I bet you don't have food in your mouth and you can talk properly..."

"What's wrong with you????" I asked, getting my eyes off the road.

"Just leave me alone Jordan!!!"

We begun arguing and I forgot I was driving.
"Jordan watch out!!!!" Ciara screamed suddenly snapping me back to the fact I was driving.

When I looked what was infront of us, panic took over all my functioning organs.
Sweet heavens, are we going to die????

It was a truck heading very fast and directly towards us honking....It's bright headlights  shone so much, blinding me...

When trying to avoid the truck, I lost control and went off the road the car moving in a zigzag motion....Ciara was screaming, her eyes shut in fear...

I couldn't let her die like this, we needed to first have babies, grand babies, great grand babies then think about dying...

C'mon Jordan you can do this...

There was a sudden screeching of tyres as I struggled to stop the car but ended up hitting a tree...Ciara flew forward and hit her head but I was okay...

"Ciara!!!" I shouted as I unbuckled my seatbelt only for her to slap my hand away...

Thanks heavens, that was close...
I sighed, calming my nerves when I realised her head was bleeding....

"Ciara, you are bleeding...." I cried out while she groaned in pain.

"Leave me alone Jordan!!!!" She slapped my hand, the moment I lifted my hand to check it out...

"You are bleeding and all you can say it's I leave you alone..." I scolded but she was stubborn.

"It's your fault we are in this mess in the first place, you can't drive Jordan!!!" She pushed the door open and staggered out...

What was wrong with her???? Why can't she just let me nurse her injury????

"Ciara????" I called out, getting out of the car but she didn't look back.
"Ciara???? Stop!!!! What are you doing????" I ran after her and quickly caught her arm before she could take another step...

Her left side of the face was bloody and also her left hand which she had placed on the injury. . Some drops of blood had also dripped on her T-shirt.

"What's wrong with you??? I need to get you to the hospital

. You are bleeding profusely..." I stated softly...

"I want to get home Jordan. Let me take a cab home..."

"I am not letting you go until you tell me why are you like this. What has gotten over you????" I twirled her around so that she could face me and placed my hands on her shoulders...

"I am not okay!!!!" She yelled while pounding my chest with her bloody fist.. She dropped my hands from her shoulders and went to stand in the middle of the road waving at the approaching car.

"Ciara, get out of there!!!" I ordered but it fell on deaf ears.
When the cab stopped infront of her, she got in and left...

I tried running after it, requesting her to stop but it didn't. What did I do that made her so sad??

Did she not care that she left me there with a useless car???? Where was her humanity???I know she doesn't love me but atleast she can pretend she does...

I reached for my phone and called Sebastian to come pick me up..I took my briefcase and her purse from the car and waited for him by the roadside....

When I got home, I found mother waiting for me so worried...

"What happened???" She ran to me the moment I walked into the hallway...

"Where is my wife????" I asked...

"You are scaring me... Did you two have an argument???" She cupped my face...

"I don't want to talk right now mum!!!" I took her hands together, kissed them and ran upstairs...

If she couldn't be with me, she couldn't talk to me atleast I wanted to know she was fine...

I slammed open the door to our room, there was no sign of her. I checked the bathroom and it was okay...There was no stain of blood.

I went to Sophie's room, neither of them were there. In Jaxon room, neither of them were there...

Where else could she be???? The terrace, yes...

I ran to the terrace only to find her crying on Jaxon's shoulder, her head all bandaged up...

"I can't take it anymore Jaxon..." She sobbed...

There and then I felt my heart break and the pieces fell on my stomach causing a piercing pain...I swallowed hard the tears that were threatening to burst out...

For once I didn't want to fight for what wasn't mine, I just wanted to retreat. I turned around and dragged my feet to our room.

I am her husband, she should be crying on my shoulder. I am the one who has the right to nurse her wounds, wipe her pain away...

Jealousy was such an ugly feeling and I hated it. I hated Ciara for making me feel like this....

Maybe it was time, I pulled back. I was fighting a losing battle and as a wise soldier I had to back out...

I sat on the bed, my hands on my head...In how many forms is she going to Rio my heart out????

I wanted her to love me, chose me. Is that much to ask???? The thought of losing her brought tears to my eyes that I had no idea when they started trickling down my cheeks....

I give up....I was wrong, love is not like a business deal...

Ciara's POV
I am not okay, I wasn't okay.
Was it fair to be mad at Jordan???? Yes, he is partially to blame for all the misfortunes in my life...

I was jealous at that girl who is carrying David's baby, I am jealous because Ariana is with the man I love, I am jealous because Alice is in good terms with dad.

Everyone seems perfect apart from me. I had been dumped, disowned, embarrassed  and forced into marriage. What wrong did I do in my past life to deserve this????

I wish I had died when the car hit that tree. Maybe then those who mean alot to me would know my worth.

I know it was immature to leave Jordan behind but I was so mad at him that if he was on fire I rather drink that water...I felt like he was incharge of my destiny, he was the writer of my fate and I hated it.

I wanted to hug him, tell him what I felt, the pain inside of me but I was only his wife on paper. I never understood him, one moment he is all caring and the other he is angry..I needed him as much as I wanted him away from him.

It felt like he was the drug I needed but I wasn't willing to swallow....

When arrived at the mansion, the driver didn't ask for money. I guess he pitied this bloody human being.

I got into the house only to find Jaxon walking in circles around the hallway. The moment he saw me, he froze...

"Ciara, what happened??" He ran to me but I pushed him back and ran upstairs.
The best place to lock myself up would be our room but I just had to go to the terrace....

I was in so much pain but that didn't matter...
Surprisingly it was soothing....

"Is this the life you have decided to live???" I heard Jaxon's voice behind me...

"Ciara, why are you doing this to yourself???" I heard his footsteps getting closer and closer, "Where is the tough Ciara who conquered the world without fear???"

I wiggled my eyes not to cry when I felt his hands on my shoulders. His hands there was comforting, it was like a catalyst I needed to break down.

He twisted me around and slowly dropped my hand from the injury...

"What happened???"

"Your brother almost killed us..." I said in a whisper.

"Is he okay????" He asked in a worried tone and I nodded.

"Let me clean this, it doesn't seem serious." He said and I just nodded..

"I will be back...." Minutes later, he came with a bowl filled with water and a first aid kit...

He placed them on the floor and knelt down,"Please sit here...."

I sent him what looked like a smile and sat infront of him..
He gently wiped my face and the wound...

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

. I felt the pepperish power  of the methylated spirits and pulled back..

"I am sorry, I will be more careful..." He blew over the wound and finally covered it with a bandage....

I know I shouldn't be worried about  Jordan but I was. Did he get help????Where is he??? Focus Ciara, don't care about him...

"Ciara, what happened that led to you two having an accident???"He asked dragging me from my thoughts.

"You happened Jaxon...." I replied dryly....

"I am sorry I called but I was just worried...." He explained himself and I just stood up and walked away from him....

If only he did that two months ago, if only he fought for me  then he would have had the right to worry about me.

Why is love so difficult??? Why can I never understand it???

"Ciara, I know it's wrong but I still love you. How was I supposed to react when I don't know where you are??? Talk to me, tell me what's wrong. What really happened???" He twisted me around so that I could face him...

"What's bothering you???" He took both of my hands, "I am still your friend and you can trust me..."

I sniffed to try and fight my tears but they dripped on my T-shirt...

"I can't do it anymore Jaxon. I can't help but be angry at him , I didn't ask for it. Why is life so unfair????" I broke down...

"Come here...." He took me in his arms...

"I can't take it anymore...." I sobbed as he rubbed my back soothingly..

"I know it's hard but you have to be strong. You have to fight this head on or else you gonna break..." He consoled me...

"If only you fought for me, if you only loved me more then this wouldn't have happened..

"What was I supposed to do????" He pulled back and held me by the arms...

"If you claim you love me then you should have done everything to be with me. You should have fought harder..." I stuttered...

"But....."

"Nothing Jaxon but for Ariana You did everything. You said you love me right but why didn't you fight for me????" I dropped his hands from my arms,"Why didn't you???You were just using me right????" I wiped the tears from my cheeks with the back of my hands..

"I love you so much but Jordan had been through alot. What would I have done????" He asked softly.

"Go to hell, no go to Ariana..." I walked away but I could hear him calling me out...

When I got to the room, Jordan was seated on his side of the bed looking stressed....

Even though I was still mad at him, I was happy that he was home safe...

"You win Ciara...." He whispered....
