❛ it is difficult to live up to
my high standards. ❜
tackling the readhead over, his arms lock around her frame &
let the pillow fall from grasp. serves them right—after whacking
him down below. he topples to the ground, trying his best not
to squash clary, but rather failing miserably as the ground rushes
up to meet them. they’re in a mess of tangled limbs & pillows.
❛ i’ll have to tell them that. ❜
there’s a loud gasp, as her laughter stops for a moment
and suddenly they’re both toppling onto the ground with
left over pillows to break their fall. the gasping from a
quick loss of breath, turns into another giggling fit. next
thing clary knows, she’s coughing and spluttering, turning
away from jace first, of course. it’s a bit of a delayed
reaction, but she was laughing too much to concentrate.
now she’s stopped. finally. but with her brows furrowed.
❛ ….. i think i ate some of your hair
————— disgusting. ❜
The sun inside of him
rages like wildfire
and he is
and he is
scorching the skin of my heart,
yet still he pretends
that he is safe for me to love,
that his hands are gentle,
that his fingerprints won’t be
seared into the notches of my spine.
The sun inside of him
could set the kingdom ablaze;
he knows this, he does.
And he still asks me to love him,
to face the flame.
Find me in the ashes."
his eyes flickered over her as she looked more than uncomfortable
with the situation at hand. his sister over the past few months had
shown all signs of control when it came to their interactions, always
keeping her eyes open and one step behind him. that was the role of
a queen, he thought to himself, and that was the role she had signed
up for. as she moved to the bed, he couldn’t help but smile at the sight.
she was gorgeous, even as a little devil, it only made her shine all the
❛ — no matter then, i’m more than content to simply dazzle
you with my brilliance on the side.. ❜
the words falling from his lips in his usual sarcastic wit. within two steps
he joined her on the bed, sitting on the side next to her he couldn’t help
but extend his arm out around her. sebastian in no way was a loving and
kind person to snuggle up to at night, but he was clever and charming,
something of which would extend into actions such as this. the more
comfortable he could make his little sister the more he could find himself
about to rely on her more. his dark orbs flickered down to her with a smirk.
❛ — i suppose you’ll tell me now that i can’t hold you
and whisper sweet nothings in your ear.. ❜
❛ don’t get too cocky. ❜
she laughs, completely out of the blue. she hasn’t laughed in
weeks but this comes naturally. clary is shocked at herself for even
thinking to. her eyes flutter close and all she can feel is his arm
around her shoulder. coldness and steel. but his skin hot on hers.
still they think as one in war, as they fight, as damned blood runs
hot in their veins. sebastian has stolen her heart away putting only
ice in its place. something that can never be forgiven. in time it has,
however. she loves him. that is enough for clary now. in time she
has realised that she has wanted this from the very start. this throne.
—— this darkness. rising up
from the flames with her red hair.
giving them all hell.
her smile fades as her laugh diminishes. settling in his arms and
resting herself against the cold wood of her bed, the dark heart
comes to know reasons behind his actions, as she had months
ago. clary knows him. clary knows him better than anyone. though
the weight of the devil hangs low on her collarbone, she still has
him to keep herself from breaking again. splitting apart from the
cracks formed, by her brothers own fault. they can’t love, they will
never know how to love, but they have their own way. have their own
reasons. it may not be real, but it’s all they need to trust each other.
❛ something like that. ❜
’ Didn’t he? It’s all that beats
against my chest. My own failures. ‘
❛ he was the one that failed, sebastian.
you’re still alive aren’t you ? besides,
i know of one person you haven’t failed.
me. if that means anything to you. ❜
” Perhaps father was right,
perhaps I was born useless. “
❛ father didn’t know what
he was talking about. ❜
there he stood, judging the life that swarmed
around his skeleton. jaw muscles twitched as
cobalt optics scanned the manor. shoulders
formed a shrug to follow effortless words.
❛ how long have
you been here ? ❜
it’s an honest question. clary had
only just arrived, coming from luke’s
of course she was going to be just
a little curious. her nimble fingers
play with the strap of her bag as her
eyebrows furrow a little in interest.
❛a little after one
i was going to head out,
go see your mom. if you’re
up for it, we could go
we could grab something
from java jones on the
way, too ; you look like
you could use a couple
doses of caffeine.❜
❛ i’d like that. i only visited

—— do you know how
she’s doing ? have they
told you anything… ? ❜
”A new recruit. Or are you lost?”
Judging by her choice of clothing, the
brunette looked the part of a Dauntless
born, yet he hadn’t any prior knowledge
of her existence. Nonetheless, Eric
provided his familiar creepy smile.
❛ a new recruit. ❜
words are sharp to her ear, and all
clary can do is frown. there would
be nothing wrong with telling the
truth, but the stubborn set of her
shoulders is telling a different story.
