Jordan's POV
I was ransacking the closet to try and find something she could wear when Jaxon stormed in.

"Jordan, the doctor is here...."
"Okay I will be there...."

I walked back to the room with one of my baggy T-shirt on my hand and found everyone looking so worried surrounding the bed...

"Doctor Leshan, is my wife going to be okay????" I asked, worry evident in my voice...

"Kindly excuse us so that we can do our job..." He requested and I nodded letting everyone out but not before I told the nurse to change her clothes and gave her the T-shirt...

"Jordan, please tell us what happened to my girl????" Granny asked as tears threatened to fall from her eyes...

"Someone tried to r*pe her...." I explained, anger seeping through me by the mere thought of what would have happened if I didn't get there on time...
"I hope you killed that bastard!!!" Jaxon raged, palm fisting himself...

"I wish I did....." I replied dryly...I was so worried that I hadn't noticed that Mason was back from his art show in Paris...

"I am sorry bro, I didn't see you there. I was so worried about Ciara..." I placed my hand on his shoulder.

"I understand...I hope she gets better

. This house is boring without her..." He tried making me feel better but it felt indifferent to me...

"What happened to you???? You need to also get checked by the doctor..." Mum sobbed as she looked at my bloody bruised knuckles...

"It's nothing..." I pulled my hand from her, looked at it and just shook my head.
What was taking the doctor so long???? Is she in danger????

"Sir, the police are here for your statement..." Caro said.
"Tell them, I will be there..."

"Everyone should go to their room or even in the living room. I will tell you when my wife finally wakes up..." I ordered and they all refused to move an inch from there.

"How can you ask that of us when one of us is fighting for her life in there???" Sophie stuttered...

"We don't mind standing here until the doctor comes out...." Mason added and I  had no choice but to adhere..

"I will go and make some soup. She will be hungry when she wakes up...." Mother suggested and we were all surprised...

"What??? She is still my daughter in-law...." She rolled her eyes and we both headed downstairs...

"Excuse me si......"The constable walked to me the moment I got into the hallway..

"How dare you ask for a statement while my wife is still unconcious??? Get out of my house, I will come to write a statement when my wife is okay...." I snarled more than I spoke...

"But???"

"But nothing....I will be polite and ask the maid to show you out. Don't force me to kick you out..." I warned, "Caro, show the gentlemen out..."

"No need, we know our way out. We will be expecting you at the station soon..." The constable retorted and I just have him what looked like a smile before following my mother in the kitchen...

"Caro, a glass of water now!!!" I ordered as I shook in rage...I felt useless, my wife was in there with the doctors and I was here doing nothing...

"Here is the water sir..." She trembled, handing me the glass of water but on sipping it I smashed it on the wall and she screamed...

"When I said water, I didn't mean warm water. How can you give me warm water on a hot afternoon???" I slammed the counter and she flinched...

"Caro, leave. I will take it from here..." My mum bossed  and the poor girl ran from the kitchen.

I didn't want to yell at her but I couldn't help it. I wanted to vent my pain out in form of anger...

Everytime I could see how helpless Ciara was and that bastard on top of her.

What if I didn't get there on time???? What if he r*ped her or killed her??? How would I have lived without her??? 

"Jordan, calm down!!!!" My mother spoke softly.

"Mum my wife is badly hurt and you want me to calm down?????" I yelled and slapped the bowl of fruits from the counter.

"Son, please don't beat yourself up...." She tried to touch me but I pulled back, "I don't need your pity..."

"I know how you feel, I also lost my husband but you don't  see me cause a mess in my kitchen...." When she mentioned  dad, I calmed down. She lost the one she loved but I was lucky mine was still here with me...."

"I wish you saw how helpless she was. How could I live without her??? The thought of losing her, scares me...." I realised tears dripping from my eyes...

"You love her, don't you???" She asked and I just nodded silently....

"Then be strong. Put yourself together because when she wakes up, she is going to need her husband by her side not a violent angry man..."She walked to where I was and placed her hands on my shoulders.....

"What if I didn't get there on time??? What if......." She placed her finger on my lips, cutting me off.

"Enough with the what ifs...Our Ciara is home and that's all that matters. We just have to be there for her when she wakes up..." She wiped the tears from my eyes before hugging me,"She will be fine, she is not a normal girl..."

"Thank you mum...."

"Anytime, now go and look if the doctor is done. As I prepare the soup for her...."

I smiled and headed upstairs....Everyone was still restless and the doctor was still in there with my wife...

"Why are they not done yet????" I walked to the door when the knob shuffled and they both came out.....

"Doctor, how is my wife????" I asked...

"We have cleaned the wounds and taken care of them. I have sedated her but she shouldn't be left alone.

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

. She might experience a traumatic experience when she wakes up and through the night..."He explained and we all keenly listened to her.

"Doctor, she will be okay right???? My Ciara...I mean our Ciara will be fine soon, yes???" Jaxon stammered...He looked scared out of his wits for his love..

Wait did he just say my Ciara??? some nerve he has there...

"Yes Jaxon, luckily the wounds were not that deep....I will get going.." He replied but before he left, he handed me a list of medicine to help with pain...

When we got into the room, she was lying peacefully...Her wounds were all covered up and the torn up clothes were replaced with my T-shirt..

"Ciara????" Jaxon cried out, ready to run to her but Ariana held him back...Indeed he loved my wife...

"I think you should all leave, my wife needs to rest..." I said calmly...

"But...."
"But what Sophie?? She is resting when she wakes up, I will let all of you know...." I snapped...

"Please leave..." I pushed them all out and locked the door...

I tried shaking the thoughts off but I couldn't.

"I am sorry that you had to go through that...I promise never to let something like that happen to you again...." I brushed my hand over her forehead...

I kissed her on the forehead before going to the bathroom....I took off my bloody clothes and had an ice cold shower...Everytime I closed my eyes, I could just see that stupid bastard on top of my wife...

He messed with the wrong woman. Nobody harms Jordan Marcias' wife.....
After the shower, I changed into a pair of grey sweatpants and a white v-shirt...

I called the office and told my PA to send the reports and files to my house...

I was seated on the sofa very busy trying to understand what I was reading when I heard sharp screams... I threw the papers I was holding and ran to her...

"Love, wake up!!!It's just a bad dream..." I lifted her off the bed and into my arms...

" Leave me alone... Stop!!! stop!!!! Don't hurt me, please..." She screamed, slapping me so hard...

"Jordan help me!!!! Help me!!!!" She begun throwing kicks and I had to hold her so tight so as she doesn't get hurt.

"Love wake up!!!!I am here. It's just a bad dream baby....." I held her so tight and she finally opened her eyes...

"Jordan is that you???" She stuttered, holding my T-shirt so tight...
"Yes, it is me my love..."

"Why did you leave me??? He was here, he came back..." She was shaking and sobbing so hard. Seeing her in that state, broke my heart...

I needed that girl back. The one who causes havoc in my life...

"I will never let him hurt you again my love. I am here and will never leave you..." I soothed her and after a while she was relaxed....

"You promise, you won't leave??"
"I will be here for you, I promise......"

She intertwined our hands and rested peacefully on my chest...
"I know you are hungry, let me tell Mom to bring the soup she made you..."
"Please, don't leave me..." She begun crying again...

"It's okay love, I am going nowhere..I will just call her..."I wiped her tears away and rested my cheek on the upside on her head....

For the first time, I realised I called her love and she didn't mind...

After some few minutes, the whole family was in the room.

"Uncle Jordan will Auntie Ciara be fine???" Pashmina asked.
"Yes darling, your aunt is a very strong woman..."

I placed some pillows and gently sat her upright so that I would feed her...

"Mum, where is the soup??? I want to feed her..."

"Don't worry, I will feed her...." My mum beamed and sat beside her...

"I am glad you are okay, thank you for being a strong woman..."Mum cupped her face and I could see Ciara fight her tears, "Thank you mum..."

Mum begun feeding her the soup, granny sat beside mum looking at her feed Ciara, Sophie was holding Pashmina and they were seating at the middle of the bed, Mason was at the sofa teasing Ciara with Ariana and Jaxon beside him..

Chloe just came in, checked on how my wife was doing and left...

I tried standing up from the bed only for Ciara to squeeze my hand so tight, "You promised you won't leave...."

"Okay, I will be here always and forever.....I promise..." I kissed her hand not caring about those people who were in the room...

"Awwwwww!!!! Atleast wait until she can feel better..." Mason teased...

I looked away shyly only for granny to make it worse, "So when is Pashmina getting a cousin to play with????"

Ciara almost choked on her soup.

"Granny, do you want to kill my wife??? This is not the time to talk about this. Let her first get better...."
"Okay...." She lifted her hands up in surrender, "But I need a grandson though.."
"We would name him after your dad...." Mum added...

When mum was done feeding her, everyone left the room.

I gave her some medicines before putting her to sleep. It was a real struggle but I managed finally...

"You promised you won't leave...." She rested her head on my chest, holding my hand so tight before she asleep...

For once I was happy, she wanted me by her side. I felt like she trusted me and finally begun recognising me as her husband.
