Magnus can’t quite believe his ears. Alec just told him that he loved him and that he was terrified of losing him. There is evidence, of course - in his posture, in his ragged breath and in his eyes, roaming all over Magnus’s body to make sure he is really there and unhurt.
Magnus shakes his head disbelievingly, taking a short moment to comprehend that the person he was falling in love with over the past few weeks,
so surely and intensely, finally reciprocates his feelings. This, Magnus thinks, is the best feeling in the world.
- “I love you.” - “I love you too.”
This moment is beautiful and not even the ugly fear of losing one another, the fear that is still creeping in the back of their minds, can make it lose its beauty and warmth.
Their hug feels like home. Being in each other’s space, breathing each other in. Magnus smells like perfume and his magic, Alec smells like sweat and something which is so Alec.
- “Shall I portal us home, Alexander?”
Alec is needed at the Institute. He needs to get back to the few survivors of the attack, they need to count bodies, report to the Clave, strengthen the wards, contact other Downworld leaders. His sister is in there, suffering from her drug addiction. His parabatai is blaming himself for the deaths of the Downworlders.
Okay so this is part of a cover of The One That Got Away by Katy Perry. This was a few years ago at a singing show thing and it’s the audio from my dad’s video of it so it’s not the best quality. It cuts off halfway through so this the link for Part Two
After unpacking for what felt like maybe ten years, I’m thinking of heading to this park I’ve heard about for some football. Hopefully there’s someone around to join in. And I mean football like soccer, I don’t like to tackle on the first day. I’m Bradley, by the way.
