Wrong Answer

Simon and Izzy had danced most of the night away with very little stopping between. She grinned happily at me as she and her boyfriend slipped out without saying good-bye to anyone. Lily had kept an ever watchful eye on Ant until someone approached her and she was off in an instant dealing with whatever…

Dancing

When we finally got up and left the room Izzy had grabbed my hand and was leading me towards the door. She grinned back at me, “The others won’t go dancing with me, but you will. Won’t you?” The smile was seductively sweet and I fell into step with her. I wrapped my arm around…

The Clave

I had eaten everything else that I’d made. Jace had come back for seconds disappointed. Our night progressed slowly with nothing really to do. Jace and Clary were snuggled up on one of the frilly couches that adorned Magnus’ apartment. Simon and Izzy were luring on the floor entwined in each other’s arms. Alec and…

A Way Home

We’d been less than successful at figuring anything out. Other than the fact that our mere presence seemed to trigger demon portals. Magnus was down. I was spent. I could hear Ant in my ear, “You stupid stupid boy.” But he was helping me stand while Alec took care of Magnus. We wouldn’t be portalling…

Kill Them All

The same group of people that had gone to the warehouse the day before went today – minus one dead mage. It was still troubling thinking that someone from this world wanted me dead. It made me wonder what sort of problems I was causing back home too that I was crossing dimensions like that….

Stupid Mage

Magnus portaled us into the institute with ease. I wasn’t the only one losing my lunch. Though I had come prepared this time, my own trash can. Alec had laughed at me. He wasn’t laughing now while they cleaned up blood. He commented. “Must be your world.” He took me down to the cage with…

Waking Up

I woke up in his so-called room back in Brooklyn. I saw the familiar form of Ant sitting by the door. I rolled my eyes, “No one is going to hurt me in my own bed.” Ant turned to look at me with his dark eyes and pointed a finger at me. “You’ve been gone…

Greater Demon

Magnus shook his head. “We need to find it first.” Ant asked from the shadows, “What am I looking for?” Everyone looked around for him and he released the obsfucation and was standing just behind me with a flaming sword in both hands. He continued. “I can search quickly in the shadows, if it’s here…

Dead Summons

Alec stood up and made me as well in one swift motion. “Go get something warmer to wear.” I looked at him but the one the blue eyed archer returned was one I wasn’t about to back talk. He had that I am leader hear me roar look on his face and I did as…

Losing Hope

Days crawled by. Everyday pretty much the same – reading dry books, waiting on Magnus’ friends to finish the translation only to have to get another reference piece to move forward. At first, Alec did his best to distract me, but there had been more demon attacks, and each one for no apparent reason. The…

Brooklyn Loft

Alec had sent his siblings a text. I hadn’t realized that the blonde was his brother as well. Looks could be deceiving I supposed. But neither of them replied, which meant one of two things – they were hell deep in high water, or they were off making out someplace. Since if they were in…

Jumping

Alec was off in the bedroom as I heard Max starting to stir. I went in to start getting the little blue man ready for his day. I assumed he’d be going to the Institute with his grandparents but I really had no clue. He squirmed as I pulled clothes on to him and changed…

Can We Keep Him?

We stopped by the Institute and picked up Max. I waited outside the run down cathedral as I didn’t really want to run into Alec’s parents. Magnus came out carrying a few books and Alec the little boy wearing his favorite glamour. I grinned as Alec played with his son as he carried him. I…

Alpha v Alpha

The music flowed through me keeping the best of the depression away. I was grateful for the distraction when a woman sat down next to me despite the look she was giving me. It wasn’t friendly, but it wasn’t aggressive either. She leaned over and spoke loudly. “What do you think you are doing?” I…

Pandemonium

Isabelle nearly dragged me through the crowded streets and subways of New York City. It wasn’t until I recognized some stares that I realized all five of the others were hidden from view. I looked like I was talking to myself. I veiled myself and I heard Isabelle gasp. I grinned and released it, “I…

Another Attack

Clary muttered to herself as she translated the Latin. She didn’t sound like she had found anything important either. I pushed the books away. “This is going to take forever.” I whined.

The door burst open and the nerd that was Simon came in waving shreiking, “We gotta go Clary, there is another attack and it’s in progress.”

Training

I did only a little wandering before the sounds of fighting drew me towards the training room I’d passed earlier. I stood below the platform and watched Jace and a few other’s I hadn’t met yet sparring with staffs. Nothing glowed like when I had seen them fighting before. They moved quickly but not faster…

The Institute

Alec was finishing up getting the baby ready, I wondered how that worked. The boy was blue and it wasn’t something you could hide, but Magnus stepped into the nursery bleary eyed and waved his hand over his son with affection and the child’s appearance flickered. I stood outside the nursery watching them while I waited for Alec to finish up. Magnus smiled with sparkling eyes still undone from sleep. Golden-green cat eyes flashed quickly before he covered them up. I smiled, “I still saw. I’m not going to judge.”

Late Nights & Early Mornings

I wasn’t going to sleep, but I made my way to the offered bedroom. I was pretty certain they wanted alone time. And I completely understood that. The room was still extravagant in comparison to what I was used to myself. The curtains on the windows were probably more expensive than anything I owned. Every…

Warlocks

I leaned against the sink and washed the used bottles and placed them in the drying rack. I felt eyes watching me and I turned around to see magic and flamboyance standing in the kitchen doorway watching me. “Bored? You can clean the rest of the house. We won’t mind.”
