Kissed : The beginning (Chapter 4)Chapter 4 : Back to reality
Alec was waiting for the elevator to bring him up to the Institute. He looked at his watch and it said 5h40. He couldn’t help but be impressed by Magnus’s efficiency. The portal had opened directly in the chapel, inside the institute, leaving him with only few steps to go back to his room. Now that the crisis was escaped, Alec felt the dull headache pulsing in his head. No more wine. Ever.
He sighed and closed his eyes for a brief minute, hoping he could get some rest but of course, that wouldn’t happen. He heard a faint sound letting him know he had arrived at the top floor. Grimacing, he gently opened the door, trying to not make the door grate as it usually did. He didn’t have such luck but at least, he felt like the sound didn’t echo throughout the hall... or so he believed.
As he walked to his room, contradicted emotions from the last evening invaded him and flashes of what happened between him and Magn

I can barely make out the voice from my foggy sleep but somehow it warm me up from the inside and I can't help but fidget and slowly I open my eyelids. My sight adjust with difficulty but it's already filled with gorgeous sparkling blue. My heart swell at the sight and my consciousness come back swiftly as I feel my heart starting to race... oh gosh, this 'love' thing is getting rather embarrassing.
- "Magnus babe... I'm leaving, it's 4, I have to get back." My Alec look hesitant a bit and blushing and it's such a feast to the eye that I barely register that he just sweet-named me. "Well... you told me to wake you so... I hope you haven't change your mind now that I woke you up." He chuckles, a little nervously.
I smile, all fuzzy and putty inside, and just sit up in the bed, realizing that Alec's already up and dressed, ready to go. I feel a little disappointed as I had hoped to coax him into another make-out session before
The After-PartyYou ready to go? Jace asked.
Clary looked over at him. They were sitting at the bar in Magnuss house at a party for something. She couldnt remember exactly what the occasion was. She nodded and got down from her chair.
What about Izzy and Alec? she said as she scanned the room. She saw Izzy talking to a faerie knight and Alec and Magnus were on the other side of the room.
They can take care of themselves, Jace said following her gaze. He turned back to her. Lets ditch this joint.
He placed his hand at the small of her back and guided her towards the door. He grabbed her light coat off the coat rack by the door and helped her put it on. Then he held the door open for her as they exited the building.
The streets were practically empty and the Institution wasnt that far away, so they decided to walk rather than take a cab. Jace laced his fingers through Clarys as they walked down the street. He glanced at her ou
Clary opened her eyes and sighed. Why was he always right? Slowly, so slowly, she rose from her bed. A hiss of pain escaped her lips and she stood rigidly. Every muscle on her body pulsed and ached, but she had to get into more comfortable clothes. She couldn't sleep in jeans. He knew that this was going to happen. He had told her not to come. Her mind went back to the beginning of the day, in the kitchen of the Institute.
"Absolutely not." Jace hissed.
"It's not your decision Jace!" Clary yelled back. Isabelle cut in.
"Jace, it's just one demon that snuck into the city. Besides, she has to start sometime, she is a Shadowhunter, and she' s been training." Clary smiled at Izzy, thankful for the support.
"She.... is... a..... novice," Jace growled. "She is not ready."
"And how would you know what I'm capable of?" Clary practically screamed. It had hurt how much he hated the idea of fighting along
