A few weeks later Jade and Mark said their vows in front of their closest friends and relatives. Like promised her mother had organized a small and intimate wedding. Jade figured her husband made sure Camilla understood she needed to listen to their wishes. Mark, after all, wanted a small wedding too.

"What's wrong?" Mark asked her quietly.

They were seated in the backseat of a car, heading back to Mark's penthouse. Jade was lost in her mind and her husband noticed. She couldn't break free though. Without her knowledge or her mom's, the guy who her dad asked to watch over her appeared. Scott Taylor. He was apparently Mark's right hand. While everyone tried to talk to Mark, Scott asked of her to meet him in her dad's office. He told her things about her husband which made her want to run, but she couldn't. Her mom was too deep into it. Like hell, she'd leave her mom to fend for herself. So she decided to stay beside her husband while Scott watched over them. At least he promised he would. Scott's appearance did mean that her father had been right about Mark all along. Mark did have underworld ties and according to Scott, he did provide his close friends at the station evidence they needed to lock Arthur away.

She glanced at her husband, "I was just thinking."

"You seemed far away."

"How did you meet Scott?"

He frowned, probably confused by her question which came out of the blue.

"Scott?"

She nodded, "Yeah, he is your closest friend, right?"

His lips curled up to a smirk, "Should I be worried that you're that interested in Scott? I did notice you two slipping away at the reception."

"He is your closest friend."

Mark chuckled, "Scott and I met four years ago. He works for an ad agency and ended up working on one of my projects. We've been friends ever since."

She was certain her father made sure Mark and Scott met. It also meant that Scott had been spying on Mark for years. Her father should have seen Mark's betrayal coming. Next time she paid him a visit she'd ask him about it. She didn't dare to spend more private time with Scott since Mark even though he joked about it, seemed worried.

"So it was faith."

"I've told you before, I don't believe in faith. We were just fortunate that we got along."

"I guess."

She tried to relax when he suddenly placed his hand on top of hers. Thankfully he didn't notice her discomfort.

"Your mother did a wonderful job."

She couldn't agree more, "She did. I'm also glad she kept it small just like I asked of her." She glanced at Mark, "I have a feeling you have something to do with it."

Mark tightened his grip on her hand, "I just told her I felt the same way about the wedding as you."

Jade was getting ready for bed while Mark was answering some emails on his laptop in bed. She dreaded going out because it was their wedding night. She knew Mark wouldn't pressure her into anything, but she still felt awkward. Patting on her night serum she ran her fingers through her hair to fix it and left the bathroom.

Mark was still working, she thanked the lord he was a workaholic. Crawling into bed beside him, she rolled to her side and faced him.

"You beat?"

She actually was, "Yeah."

Softly running his fingers through her hair he flashed her a smile and focused back on his screen, "Night, Jade."

She was glad he didn't say anything which would make things even more awkward. He just focu

aced Betty. She took the picture of them together and send it to Mark. They had dinner together and snuggled up on the couch to watch a movie together while eating dessert.

"I won't be able to come home early tomorrow. I actually have a lot of catching up to do."

"Sorry."

"Don't apologize, it's not your fault." He sounded upset and when she glanced at him she could see he was actually getting angry at her for apologizing, "I had a great time, Jade. I actually loved spending so much time with you. Am I wrong to assume you also had a great time?"

"No." She didn't waver when she locked eyes with him, "I feel like we've gotten a lot closer. And I've missed you too."

She could see the surprise in his eyes, then his eyes warmed and his anger faded when he realized she responded to his earlier statement.

Grabbing her empty plate he placed it on the coffee table along with his. Carefully he reached for her and cupped her face in his hands while he kissed her. The kiss was soft at first as if he was afraid she'd pull away. When she kissed him back he deepened the kiss, slipping his tongue into her mouth. Then the kiss turned heated and wet. Her breathing hitched in her throat when his hands started to explore, slowly slipping under her shirt. She got so lost in the moment she didn't even realize when he picked her up and started walking to their bedroom. She snapped out of her daze when her back hit the mattress and she bounced a little. Mark stood at the end of the bed, his eyes intensifying as he took her in. It made her feel pretty and wanted. Mark started to unbutton his shirt while she sat up and kicked off her heels. Sitting up on her knees she reached for his belt and pulled him closer to her, her lips pressing against his neck while she listened to their breathing. Mark placed his hand on the back of her head, lacing his fingers into her hair and pulled her gently back. Covering her lips with his he gave her a quick kiss and pulled away. He stepped back and took off his shoes, tossing them beside hers. Smiling Jade laid back against the pillows and watched him crawl on top of her. She let her hands wander over his bare chest, exploring his heated skin. That night he made her forget about everything else and she loved every second of it.
