“Hope we’re not disrupting anything”
I heard Alex voice and quickly pulled away from Brian.
I was trying to compose myself but heaven knows it’s not working. I’m sure Alex saw everything but pretended as if she didn’t.
“Hi.” I called
“Hello” Jake said holding Alex by her shoulders and pulling her closer to himself.
“How are you guys doing?” Brian asked shaking hands with Brian while Alex smiled at me.
“We’re cool. sorry for today. Alex was really down so I had to take care of her.” Jake explained
“no it’s okay”
“So how did it go?”
“It was alright.” I said smiling sheepishly.
I was thinking about everything that happened earlier before they arrived.

Alex excused herself from Jake and walked into the room with me while the guys talked about random stuff.
“So.. ” she trailed off after shutting the door behind her “how did it go?”
“it was alright. how are you feeling now?” I ask
“I’m good. I am never drinking again”
“Classic” I teased
“I feel so sad that we missed today’s fun. I wanted to come but Jake insisted that I stay” she say.
“it’s okay. he’s only looking out for you?”
“I feel like a child” she whines
“Of course you are. To Jake” I say and he smiles
“I know you guys had fun last night. the alcohol was literally in your head” she say causing me to laugh.
“I wish that happened cause we didn’t.”
“He didn’t touch you?” she asked
“Sex? No. I don’t think I’m ready for that” I say.
“But you guys are married. you should be planning on having kids or aren’t you?”
“Nope we’re not. at least not now. you see Brian was a bit of a player before we got married. I don’t think he’s changed” I tell her
“so you mean you don’t know that he likes you?”
“Likes me? what are you talking about?”
“Haven’t you noticed the intense stare he gives to you or the way he behaves. he likes you” she tells me.
“Alex I think I’ll know it when I see it. I’m scared of opening up and getting my heart hurt in the process. I don’t want to experience that kind of pain” I explain to her
“I hope you’re right. For all you know Brian could be your MR RIGHT. ”
“I doubt that” I say and just then we heard a knock on the door.
“Who is it. we’re having a girls party in here” Alex half yells while I laugh
“Oh sorry but I think your husband is going to suffer a heartache if he doesn’t see his wife soon” Brian says and she quickly gets up
“Alright we’re coming” Alex says pulling me up from the bed “Let’s go” she orders and I follow behind her.
We arrive at the living room where the guys were obviously having another drink without us.
“Hey” Alex shouts grabbing the glass from Jake “You forgot about me”
“Not really” he says taking it back “I just don’t want you getting drunk. you barely survived yesterday’s round” Jake teases causing us to laugh.

My eyes caught Brian’s and he was giving me multiple signs I couldn’t understand.
First he would grab his hair and Pat a seat next to him.
I nodded no after realizing that he actually wanted me to seat right next to him on the couch.
What’s wrong with him.
I sighed and glanced at Alex or Jake to see if they were watching the drama but thankfully they were lost in their romantic conversation.
“Come here” Brian whispered softly to me.
“No I don’t want to” I whispered back.
this was turning to a whispering competition.
“don’t make me kiss you” he threatened
“Duhhh as if” I said sticking out my tongue like a three year old.
“please Ciara or I’m gonna—” he said holding onto his throat as if he’s gonna strangle himself.
I started smiling sheepishly.
like a little girl who’ve just been offered candy.
“Why are you smiling?” Alex asked breaking Into my thoughts
“Nothing” I lied
“So” Jake trailed off “How about we go hiking in the woods for a couple of days, maybe two”
“Hiking???” I half yell “Why do we need to go hiking?”
“to spend some time in the wild. trust me you’re gonna love it” Alex adds
“Not unless you’re stuck with the heat and all the freaky bugs” I tell them.
“I love it. the idea of being in the wild is going to be amazing, right Ciara” Brian asks.
can’t he just say no.
what’s his problem.
I hate him.
“Okay then I’m coming too.” I say
“So when are we leaving?” Brian asks
“Tomorrow and don’t try to chicken Ciara. you’ve got us” Jake tells me and i smile
“Thanks Jake” I say
“welcome. we’ll be going now” Alex says before finally shutting the door behind her.

I was already feeling uncomfortable again. is he going to kiss me again? What if he tries to?
He stood up from the couch and my heartbeat has increased ten times the normal rate.
He walked towards me and I tried to hold it back together and just then he walked inside like I was invisible or something.
Is he mad because I didn’t sit close to him like he wanted?
I really wanted to but I wasn’t sure. I’m really not used to this side of Brian at all.
It’s too different for me and everything is moving so fast and it’s seems as if I’m falling for him. And I don’t want him to think that or he’ll end up using me just like the other girls he had dated.
For all I know, He could be in love with Janelle.
Should I fight for Brian? is he worth it? I know I have all the right in this world to do so cause he is my husband but what If???

He walked out of the room and came back sitting on the couch.
“Brian?” I call
“Should I make you dinner? are you hungry?” I ask
“Not really?” he replied then looks at my face like he’s forgotten something.
“What’s wrong?”
“Come on. let me show you something” he says grabbing my wrist in one hand and his jacket in the other.
We head out the door to a place only he knows where.
We arrived at the beach and sat down on the sand.
The place was a bit dark. I was scared that Brian was trying to kidnap me. Although I saw some human figures walking too.
“Is this what you wanted to show me? The water and the sand?” I say in a, sarcastic manner.
“Okay I need you to close your eyes.” he tells me
I gave him the close-your-eyes-for-what look but he only smiles
“you’re going to love it trust me” he tells me and I close them.
“Now can I open them?” I ask but he replys know
“Alright you can open them now” he said giving me a light shove on my elbow and I let out a laugh before finally opening them.
was all I could say. the entire sky was filled with fire crackers that reflected numerous colours in the sky.
“You like it don’t you?”
“I love it. look at that one over there” I say pointing at the sky.
“it looks more like Ciara” he teases and I gave him a, slap.
“Oh look there’s a shooting star” I say “let’s make a wish” I tell him
“Wishes don’t come true. it’s pointless” he says lying down on the sand.
“Okay to make it interesting. Whoever’s wish comes true owes the other a free meal” I say and just then I noticed a smirk on his face.
somehow I’m regretting what I just said
“I like that but to make it more interesting, the loser has to kiss the winner” he says
“Alright” I nod in agreement
“Great. here’s comes another shooting star” he says pointing at the sky and we both close our eyes to make our wishes.
“What did you wish for?” he asks me
“You can’t ask what I wished for or it won’t come true” I say
“Have it your way then” He says standing up and pulling me up as well.
“Let’s have dinner” he tells me and we walk into a restaurant to have our meal.
After eating, we decided to go back home.
On our way, Brian bought me the biggest candyfloss I’ve ever seen.

We walked to the direction of our home when we saw a cart on the roadside.
There was a lady selling different kinds of Jewelries and accessories.
Most people stood there to buy one thing or the other.
Brian decided that we take a look.
He scanned the entire jewelry and settled for two matching necklaces.
“Give that to the person you love and you’ll be together forever” the lady tells him.
He pays for it and takes both.
He wore one and put the other one in his pockets.
“Let’s go” he tells me and I nod.
Who’s the other one for?
Is he in love with someone else?
Is it Janelle?
I mean it has, to be right. he’s even thinking of how and bought matching necklaces for the two of them.
I should’ve known.
Am I getting jealous?
“Ciara?” I heard him call
I stopped licking the candy and looked at him.
“come here” he ordered
I walked up to him. I couldn’t believe he’s walked that far.
“Hold up your hair” he tells me and I did.
He stood at my back and the next thing I knew. He wore me the necklace and hooked it on my neck.
I opened my mouth to say something but words weren’t coming out
“I’ve not seen the person I want to be with yet so please hold onto it till she comes” he tells me
I couldn’t help but smile
“Thank you” I tell him “And thank you for also bringing me to watch the crackers that lit up in the sky” I added
“You’re welcome.”
I can’t believe this is happening
“Yes Brian” I reply.
He didn’t say anything but came closer to me. He leaned foward and placed his lips on mine while pulling me closer to him.

We finally pulled away.
I didn’t say anything cause my cheeks were turning red.
“Looks like I won” he muttered amidst laughter
“Won what?” I asked clueless of what he was talking about
“Our bet. my wish was to kiss you and I finally did so you owe me a kiss and a free meal as well”
“That’s… that’s not possible. for all we know, you could be lying”
“That’s why I asked you to tell me what you wished for but you said it won’t come true and looks like I won so Mrs Ciara Salter. I believe you owe me a kiss now” he says while I stood there like a statue staring at him in disbelief as he started laughing hysterically…
