Jordan's POV
I felt like her and I were the greatest plans ever made...I had this amazing gift but I wasn't sure if I needed to be happy or sad...

She was everything I never knew but always wanted. For the past three months, we were more of friends..We  understood each other, shared each others' joys and sorrows, stood by each other and I  can't believe how fast time went by. it's now only one week before I sign the divorce papers...

There has been signs in her showing me she might actually feel something for me even if it's tiny bit but I can't accept that fact..

The way she looked at Jaxon in the past, rubbed her love for him on my face I know it's not that easy to forget him...

I was happy that I took part in helping  my wife fulfill her dream...I gave the fashion house plan the first priority, hired more than enough contractors,ensured everything needed was in place and before we knew it, it was all done.

The 1200sqft space was set over two floors to offer an electric mix of women wear,resort wear,active wear,jewellery and accesories . There was a private lounge and creative studio on the third floor...The runway room and offices being on the fourth floor...How could we forget a terrace for the ladies to have some fresh air after a long day of work??? By ladies you know I mean my wife...

The minister and I will not be seeing each other for a while now since my work with the ministry is also complete...It seems nothing is stopping the divorce planned to take place in a week's time...

The lawyer has been working on the papers and everyday I pray that Ciara would run into my arms and tell me how much she loves me..Or should I??but what if she rejects me...Her heart only belongs to Jaxon ..

Yesternight was the opening of Varuna fashion house and Ciara didn't look happy at all.  She seemed tired and dehydrated... Not even once did I see her having any drink...She just  beautifully sipped from the blue water bottle she was holding around...Why am I even surprised??? She has been eating weird food of late, lost alot of weight and maybe she is just keeping fit...

After the fashion event, she didn't want to go to the after-party....She just wanted I drive her home...Was she okay????

The ride home was awkwardly silent

. She has this habit of making me sing along with her as we drive home but today something was different. She seemed low and stressed..

When we arrived home,she was already asleep and so I carried her bridal style to our room and diligently placed her on the bed...I wish she could tell me what was going on...

It was already 8am and she wasn't awake yet...For the past three months, she has been the one helping me get ready every morning but today it felt different..Something wasn't right somewhere...

I walked to her side and noticed she was still dead asleep...Should I wake her or just get ready and go to work???No, I can't leave her like this..I will have to stay home today and look after her..

"Ciara are you okay????" I shook her lightly and she just nodded..
"Are you sure???"
Instead of responding, she pulled the duvet over her head and there I was left all confused.

Read " Binded by friendship " by the same author ( Fideh Mwangi )

. What did I do now????

Ciara's POV
I am pregnant....Yes, I lied about the family planning...I wanted to have a baby with the man I love atleast when we go our separate ways I will still have something that holds us together..

Call me desperate but I am desperately in love..I wish I could say everything was going well with this pregnancy but I would be lying....

I have hyperemesis gravidarum...The persistent severe headaches,abdominal pain, the severe nausea,vomiting and dizziness were driving me crazy...

I have done a good job in hiding this from Jordan but am not sure for how long I can do it alone...I am losing a lot of weight and I can only eat mashed potatoes, dry toast, bananas and baby shake...People think I am on a diet if only they knew what am going through...

I know I should be happy that the opening of Varuna fashion house was a success but It was the last thing on my mind...

I woke up ready to go throw up all my energy out when I realised Jordan hadn't left for work..

Shit maybe he was waiting I help him  get ready...Sorry Jordan but I can't, the abdominal pain is killing  me..

I didn't know for how long I could bite my tongue and hold them in...I really needed to throw up...

"Are you okay???" I felt him shake me lightly...I just had the energy to nod..
"Are you sure???" He asked once more...
Can't he give up already???I pulled the duvet over my head and began rubbing my stomach...I wish I could scream the pain out...If he knew how much I ached to being his arms wherever I felt I couldn't do it...

I tried my best to hold it all in until he got into the bathroom...I hurriedly got off the bed with a hand on my mouth, ran out of the room to Sophie's room...

I didn't even look at her...I slammed the bathroom door open,knelt Infront of the toilet, placed the hands on the tank Infront of me and begun throwing up...

I felt her rubbing my back soothing as she held my hair back for me..
"It's okay dear, it will all be fine..." She spoke softly....

After I was done, I sat on the floor and her beside me...
"I can't do this anymore..." I sobbed unceasingly into her chest, hands clutched on her blouse..All she did was rub my back...

The moment I stopped crying, I could feel a headache spread to my temples...
I stood from the floor and walked to the sink to rinse my face...

"I think Jordan needs to know about this..."Sophie stated in a commanding tone, handing me a towel...
"You know our marriage is just on mere piece of paper .."
"But you have had s*x twice or is it thrice???Come on Ciara you can't fool me. You love him and he loves you .." She tried convincing me...

"But he knows I am under family planning..How do I explain I got pregnant intentionally???" I whispered in a hoarse voice....
"You should rest in my room for a while...Ariana and Chloe will be here soon, I have texted them..But in one way on another Jordan needs to know..."

How could I explain it to  her, the reason I can't tell Jordan is because we are divorcing in one week's time..That I wish it was a one big night mare but it's really happening...

"You should avoid stress Ci...I will tell Maria to prepare you some dry toast and baby shake.And also text Jordan you are here before he calls the FBI to check on you.." She said as she walked me to the bed and I just nodded...

Just when I was about to lie down, Ariana and Chloe slammed the door open angrily...
"Till when will you torture yourself????" Chloe scolded...
"That thing is bound to finish you...Look at yourself...You are all dehydrated and weak. To top it all, you can't even tell Jordan.."Ariana added...

How dare she call my baby a thing???

"Don't dare call my baby a thing!!!!" I warned her as I stood from the bed," I don't care about what you all say..."

"Just look at you...Please just abort it...You can always get another one. Aren't you worried about yourself???" Ariana just doesn't know where to stop...
"We don't want anything to happen to you, we love you so much..." Chloe continued...

I could feel myself getting weaker and weaker and  didn't have the strength to argue anymore..

"That's enough ladies, I think we should let her rest. She doesn't look so good." Sophie suggested...

She tried taking my hand but I drew it back...

"I stopped worrying about me long ago...You are going to be a mother in a few days, how can you ask me to abort mine???I can literally feel it grow inside me...I don't care how much pain I go through even if it's the last thing I do on  this earth I am keeping  my baby..." I have never been so real in my life..I could feel pearl-shaped tears roll down my cheeks ..

"Then at least tell Jordan the truth???You need him by your side????" Chloe spoke calmly walking  towards me...
"I can't..." I shook my head and placed my left hand on my belly.

"I think you should Ciara..." I heard Jaxon's voice behind Ariana and heavens knows I almost got a heart attack..I can't believe Ariana and Chloe were so careless to leave the door open..

"What have you heard???" I stammered...
"Everything that I needed to hear. I can't believe you are this selfish...." Jaxon shook his head in disgust...

"If I were you, I wouldn't judge without hearing the whole story..."Sophie warned as she walked towards him and I followed her,"She has hyperemesis gravidarum and with the option to carry out an abortion she chose to persevere the pain..To me she is strong and not selfish...So dear brother choose your words wisely..."She spoke between her closed teeth..

"Please don't tell Jordan..." I took his hands into mine and pleaded with him...
"Ciara you need him by your side..."
"Can't you hear what I am saying????" I am begun shouting,"I don't want him to know...."
"Jaxon please tell her you won't ...." Sophie tried to plead with him on my behalf...
"Sophie is right, she can't be under stress right now..." Chloe seconded her....

All of a sudden I felt like my innards were being replaced by a kind of black hole. Then nausea crept from my abdomen to my head and the world went black...

Jordan's POV
I walked out of the bathroom and Ciara was nowhere to be found...

"Ciara???"I called out in the closet even looked her under the bed but she was nowhere to be found...Once in a while she loves hiding under the bed and scares the wit our of me..I am going to really miss her after the divorce...

"Maybe she is at Sophie's, let me check...." I was about to go look for her when I got a text from Sophie saying Ciara is in her room..
I shrugged and walked into the closet...

This girl can be very untidy, her side of the closet was hell of a mess and I couldn't give it a blind eye...

I was busy arranging her clothes when I heard Jaxon screaming my name...I dropped the blouse I was holding and ran out of the closet only to see my Ciara weakly carried in his arms..

"What happened???" I stammered as I helped him place her on the bed...
"It's all your fault...If anything happens to her I will kill you...Fool.." I could hear Sophie scolding him. What actually happened???I hope   he didn't say hurtful words or I am gonna skin him alive???

"Sophie what do you mean???What did Jaxon do???" I asked her .
"The doctor will be here soon...." She ignored my question and slapped Jaxon at the back of his head... If only I wasn't so worried, I would have sucked the truth out of him..

Jaxon stood from the bed and tried to talk to Ariana and Chloe who were standing beside the bed but they all ignored him...Can someone for the love of God tell me what's happening????

"Please wake up love..." I cried out to her as I rubbed her hands..I wish I had called the doctor yesterday when I realised she wasn't looking so good..

Seeing how weak and dehydrated she was made me realise how ignorant of a husband I am...All the signs were been pointed out to me but I did nothing about it. If anything happens to her, I will never forgive myself. She is my everything and I can't imagine what  would happen to me if she dies....I would probably die too..

Finally the doctor was there and she asked all of us to leave apart from Sophie....I didn't understand why I couldn't stay while I was her husband...
"I am not leaving I am her husband.  I need to know what's wrong with my wife???" I yelled at the doctor that she flinched..

"I am sorry Mr Marcias but those were your wife orders..That incase this ever happens only her family, Jane and Sophie are allowed in...So please leave us alone, I need to check on my patient .." She explained calmly..
"Okay but I will be outside waiting for you..."

What was happening???...Why didn't Ciara want me inside there???What was she hiding????The only way to find out is through Jaxon..

"What did you do to her????" I held Jaxon by the collar the moment we left the room...
"I did nothing..."He cried out...
"You are lying...." I shook him vigorously...

"He is not...If you want to know what's happening ask Ciara...Jaxon fault is poking his nose where it shouldn't be...Trust me, she will be fine...." Ariana dropped my hands off his collars and dragged him to their room...

I tried looking at Chloe for answers but she looked away.....

I was going crazy being on the other side of the wall...I needed answers or else I would go crazy...Did she have a terminal disease and was scared to tell me???

"Doctor,open up I want to know what's wrong with my wife????" I begun knocking at the door violently...Chloe tried to stop me but I pushed her away...

After some few seconds, Sophie opened the door angrily and slapped me before getting back  inside....Someone please have mercy on my sanity and tell me what's going on ....
