Ciara's POV
I know you all think when I called Jordan Marcias a driver that I didn't know he was actually the boss...

He looked like the boss, from his expensive Italian suit, his shoes, the watch and the similarity features between him and the twins...

I just wanted to put him into his place. I could see Mason and Natalie signalling me to shut up but I didn't care..He think he runs the world when actually he just runs the business his father left behind for him
when he died...

If his  grandfather did not steal so many lands after our independence or used his smart brains to better the future of his descendants to come he would probably be a fruit vendor.. . He might act all mighty and arrogant but the bottom line was his  grandfather was a thief...

Back to things that mattered, working for Jaxon was fun but pretty tiresome as well..In his album he had twelve songs and in those twelve songs he needed a different outfit to perform three songs...In short I needed to design four unique sets together with his dancers and backup singers...

I was under a good kind of pressure but my personal problems were a barrier to me keeping up. I missed my parents and David so much...

I walked through the gate only to bump into arrogant man and Emma..

. To me she seemed beautiful and seductive, something to be admired from a distance... When he saw me, he quickly dropped her hand like it was on fire.. I wish he knew I didn't care even if he dated the Pope...

"Hey Ciara," she hugged me and before I could respond she continued, "I hope you will consider me as your model in your next project..."

"Okay..." I walked past them ignoring the sculpture beside her...

When I walked inside the fashion studio and found Natalie busy perfecting her sketches...

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

. Half of me was proud of her and another half was jealous of how hard-working she was...

"Natalie, this is perfect. I am glad you followed what I suggested..." I smiled looking at the perfect sketches in front of me...

"Thanks Ciara..."

"So what do you say, you accompany me at the Fashion show this weekend???I really need a plus one..."

"Are you sure???" I nodded and she begun jumping up and down excitedly, dancing me around, "You won't regret it..."

"Okay enough with the dancing, I am getting dizzy..."

We were so busy with work, finishing up with the sketches, trying to put rough designs together when I smelt a familiar cologne...It was Jaxon...

By the thought of him, my heart pounded foolishly....

"Good morning beautiful ladies???"
"Good morning Jaxon..."Natalie responded with a smile whereas I tried to get the words but couldn't...

"Are you okay Ciara??" He placed the hand on my shoulder and I could feel fire all over my body... I eyed him from top to bottom, admiring everything I saw... Damn I wanna rest on that chest, sweet lips mamammia...

"Ciara???" I  shook my thoughts off..

"Excuse me." I turned around and ran to the washroom. Yes, he was my celebrity crush but I didn't know he had such an intense effect on me...

I rinsed my face severally but my heart still sang in delight as my mind drove my thoughts to weird places...

Picturing him shirtless, his lips on my lips, him serenading me and how perfect I looked into his arms...

Lord what was happening???

I looked myself in the mirror and slapped myself so hard...

"Focus Ciara, he is your boss..."

I got out of the washroom and found him waiting for me," Are you okay???"

"Yes, No, No, Yes....I am fine..." I finally shot him cold eyes after much struggle...

"I know what you need, some motivation..." He said, grabbing my hand and pulling me out of the studio...

"Where are we going???" I asked but didn't get an answer only wild hormones...

In the car, the silence was very weird..All he did was sing  melting my heart away... I was drowning in his sweet voice and couldn't help it...

"Here we are..." He snapped me out of my fantasies....

"What are we doing here???" I asked when I got out of the car. We were in the middle of nowhere...

"I want you to find your motivation and i think I might help you..." He got his guitar from the back seat, held my hand,"Come.."

We silently walked for a while until we reached a river... The place looked beautiful with the trees, the still water and the chirping birds...

"This place is beautiful," I smiled looking around...

"I know, so sit down and I will take your sorrows away..."

I sat at the rock beside him and listened to him as he sung my sorrows away. Indeed music is always the medicine...

His golden voice carried me away that I begun moving my head side to side, snapping my fingers as my eyes welled with tears...

I love you my honey
I don't want anyone but you
You make me feel perfection
All I want is you by my side

"That was beautiful," I fanned myself not to cry...

"Yeah, it was a song I was to sing to my ex the day she dumped you. I was....."

"You were going to meet her at the Parki gardens after you recorded this song only for her to tell you it's over..." I butted in..

After realising that I had unleashed my parrot side, I covered my face with my hands.
"I am sorry i talk too much..."

"No, I am just surprised of how much you know me...." He dropped my hands from my face,"How do you know me so much???"

"I am your biggest fan.." I blurted out smiling like a fool..
"And I am also your biggest fan..." He kissed my hand making my cheeks warm with embarrassment...

"So let me sing another song for my biggest fan..."

Guess which song it was...
Left behind by Jaxon Marcias

You knew I loved you but you left anywei
I am a sad song on repeat
How am I to heal my broken heart??
When I didn't want you to leave me behind

The song he released after Tabby dumped him.. When he sung that song, memories of me and David flooded my mind and I couldn't hold back my tears...

I felt the person understood my pain, his voice was meant to sooth my broken heart and the words were to make me cry...

I couldn't hold back...

"Ciara, why are you crying???"

"He left too..."

Those were the last words I said before he imprisoned me in his arms....
