Ciara's POV
I know it sounds silly but having Jordan brush my hair it's the best unexplainable feeling ever..
As time passes by, I love him more...

When we reached the garden, everything looked so beautiful. It seemed like angels moving around....Since the colour theme was white,black and gold the men had to wear white shorts, a white button up shirt and a pair of loafers. Loafers could either be black or white . We ladies had to wear a loose fit, light weight sleeveless summer dress with back lace straps and boat neck...
Not forgetting a pair of black strap ankle heels...

Sophie had dressed the sitting table with a gold table cloth and arranged filing vases, tea lights with dark coffee beans and crepe paper flowers in line on the middle of the table... There was also bottles of wine,beer and champagne in silver buckets for guests to serve themselves. We had to maintain a special vibe...

Beside the sitting table, there was white dressed tables filled a mouth watering aroma. The first table had appetizers followed by a separate table with soup and salad selections. The next table had a choice of entrees followed by side dishes and bread. Finally different desserts were nicely displayed in a catering trays with a chocolate fountain in the middle of the table...There was also a small table with silverware and napkins...

There was also a table decorated with Baby items at the front of the tent where the guests were to place their gifts...

There were alot of guests from the music, art and business world

. From the fashion world they were only two.

Jordan and I walked around  greeting the guests until one made a funny comment...
"Jordan, no one is taking her from you. Let her mingle with us..." He teased and that's when we realised we have been holding each other's hand all along...

I expected him let it go only for him to squeeze it.
"I rarely see her since I am busy with work so when I do I never wanna let go..."

I could feel my heart pounding foolishly at his statement...
Calm down Ciara, it's just a statement. Don't get so excited that your heart will drop to your stomach...

"I forgot to say you look beautiful.." He whispered to my ear after we were done with the guests..
I placed my hand on my mouth and looked down giggling foolishly...
"Are you seriously blushing????"He lifted my chin up and I couldnt look into his eyes....

"I will go help the guys with the barbeque. You can go to your girls..."He winked and pulled his hand away...That instant my hand felt cold and lonely....Don't go please. My heart cried out...

I felt like going after him but I was held back with imaginary chains...
"Ciara???"I heard Chloe behind me...
"Yes???"I turned to her and the unexpected happened. She hugged me...

"Thank you for saving my little angel. I don't know what would have happened if you didn't get there in a nick of time..."She stuttered and all I could was stroke her hair....
"I already fired that careless nanny. She is lucky I didn't call the police..." She thundered...

"I am glad she is okay...." I replied and pulled back. It really felt weird seeing Chloe all sweet and kind. Honestly it doesn't suit her...

"I owe you one...."She smiled before walking away.

Even before I could even internalise what had happened,Jane and Sophie were beside me...
"What in the name of sweet bicycle happened????" Jane asked, her mouth wide open..
"The snake has hidden her fangs...." Sophie joked and we all laughed...
"Did Chloe just hug you???? Trust me it's the end times..." Ariana teased and the air was filled with laughter once more. I don't know what I would so without these girls...

"Ladies, I am starving. Can we eat????" Ariana retorted and we were all shocked. She literally had a wing of chicken in her hand....

When we were done eating,we sat comfortably on our seats enjoying our drinks as the couple unwrapped the gifts....Jaxon had the fun to open the baby toys and baby-boy related surprises whereas Ariana opened family oriented gifts...

After that it was time to reveal the baby's gender to Jaxon. A big box full of balloons was placed on the table. They were either blue or pink...
When Jaxon opens the box if the balloons are pink is a girl if they are blue she is a boy...

He seemed tensed since his hands were shaking...
He gently shut his eyes and opened the box....
He slowly opened his eyes only to see blue balloons on the air. 

Immediately he screamed excitedly and lifted Ariana off her feet twirling her around.
"Guys, it's a boy..."
The happiness on his face was unexplainable...No words could explain it.

Just when I thought I could take my heels off, it was time to play Don't break mama's water contest
It involved throwing and catching water balloons at increasing distances...
If you drop the ball, you give Ariana one thousand shillings and kiss your spouse for a minute..

Everyone at a certain point dropped the water balloons and those lucky to have their spouses with them got to be kissed passionately for a minute...

The fun went on and on until 9 pm...It was time for the guests to leave so as we can have an intimate after party. .The ladies were sent home with a box full of homemade chocolates whereas guys were given a box full of chocolate cigars....

When all the guests had left, we sat by the bonfire next to our spouses. Since Sebastian's girlfriend and Alpha were not around, Sebastian and Sophie had to act like a couple...

We were all busy talking and joking while Mason walked around serving us his special punch in baby drinking bottles. It was hilarious...

"What madness is this???Are we three???" Jordan looked at the bottle weirdly.
"Stop being a party pooper bro, let's have fun. It's Ariana's day..." Jaxon spoke calmly and Jordan lifted his hands up in surrender.

Luckily there was a straw passing through the teat or his ego wouldn't have allowed  him to drink from it.
Every drink offered seemed like a better and better idea...

"Damn, I want to kiss those lips so bad..." Jordan whispered onto my ear..
"All you have to do is kiss them..." I giggled foolishly...

I also wanted to kiss him and make love under the stars...
He took my hand and stood me up from my chair and sat me on his laps...

"Jordan can't keep his hands to himself..."Mason teased him and everyone writhed in laughter.

"Why don't we play never have I????" Sophie suggested and we all nodded in agreement.

"Ciara you go first. Never have you????" Mason asked.

"Never have I kissed a girl..." I replied...

"And you Jordan???" Mason asked.

Read " Pierced Rose " by the same author ( Fideh Mwangi )

. Why did it feel like it was planned???

"Kissed Ciara infront of you guys..." He cupped my face and awarded me with a slow drugging passionate kiss. I didn't want him to stop...

I begun unbuttoning his shirt when Mason pulled us apart...I don't know how many bottles of punch I had drunk and didn't care. All I needed was Jordan to hold me in his arms...

"I think we should all dance, what do you think???" Mason asked but no one replied. Jaxon was been cossy with Ariana,Sebastian and Sophie were taking selfies, Chloe was just there counting the stars,Mason was walking around giving refilling people bottles and Jordan and I were there unable to keep our hands to ourselves...

"Shall we dance my love???" He brought my hand on his lips and kissed it..
It felt like my heart would explode with excitement.
"It would be my honour my darling..." I kissed him on the lips and dragged him from the rest..

Just as when we moved closer to each other, Thinking out loud by Ed Sheeran begun playing on the background. It like Sebastian had sensed I needed to be close to this man...

I rested my head on his chest and allowed him to sway my body round and round. Nothing else mattered.

"I love you Ciara..." I heard him whisper softly to me. He finally said the three letter words, it's your turn Ciara. Tell him you love him too.
No matter what I did, I couldn't bring myself to open my mouth...

When the music slowed down, I looked up into his eyes and cried. What did I do to deserve this man??? Please God, give me the courage to confess my love to him. I don't wanna lose him especially now that him and my dad have begun having a good relationship...

"Why are you crying???" He asked, wiping the tears away with his thumbs..
"I told you, I don't deserve your tears because I would never make you cry..." He said softly making me cry more.

I wasn't sad dummy, I am just happy that I have you. I am the luckiest woman in the whole world ...

I begun feeling my head heavy and spinning around...
