“I don’t know what will happen in the future, but if something dangerous comes along, I don’t want to be a burden, I wanna help! I want to be there for Steven, to fight by his side! The Earth is my home too, can’t I help protect it?”
Minutes after he’d ended the call, he could still hear Maryse’s voice in his head, and her scoff that he was once again at Magnus’. He had assumed that the three months would have been enough time for her to get over the fact that he’d chosen Magnus, but his mother was nothing if not persistent in telling him the many reasons why he shouldn’t waste his time with Magnus Bane.
“Still asking you why you’re with Magnus,” Izzy asked when he sighed.
Alec nodded. “Now, she’s asking me what I see in him.” Alec made a face. “Like seriously. What kind of question is that?”
“You should have just told her he has a big dick,” Jace said, with a casual shrug of his shoulders.
“Jace!” Alec exclaimed, not like it did anything for Jace who just stared calmly right back at him.
