229: “Somebody’s in love!”
magnus had barely stepped inside the institute and had the chance to take a breath before alec saw him from across the room, giving the weekly report to a group of shadowhunters only moments before. a dopey, insanely happy grin spread across his face that made magnus’ heart flutter like a hummingbird’s wings and he felt a smile of his own tug at his lips as alec excused himself from the conversation and practically sprinted over to magnus.
“hi.” alec said breathlessly, his eyes wide and he was looking at magnus as if had hung the moon and all the starts in the sky and had mapped out the constellations by hand.
“hi there.” magnus replied flirtatiously, laughing in surprise when alec suddenly grabbed his waist and pulled him flush against him, that stupidly enamored smile on his face.
“i missed you,” alec’s hands came up to frame magnus’ face, his fingers cold and soothing and famillar. magnus hummed and leaned into the touch and he wrapped his arms around alec’s waist. “i’ve been thinking about you all day.”
“i missed you too, love.” magnus shook his head, a look of wonder on his face and alec kissed him tenderly, like drinking coffee in the morning, the light casting an ethereal and warm glow on your face. magnus pulled back, his eyes still closed and an almost sleepy smile on his lips as he rested his hands on alec’s chest, but made a startled noise when alec pulled him back for one kiss after one, his hands moving from magnus’ face to his back to his waist to his shoulders.
“alexander, there are people staring.” magnus giggled in between kisses, turning his head to look, an attempt to deter alec but this only prompted him to start peppering kisses on his cheek. and there were people staring, not that magnus minded, but he wasn’t so sure if alec shared the same opinion. alec huffed and glanced over at the other room, the few people who were, in fact, staring quickly avoiding eye contact and hurrying off to do their jobs.
“i’m the head of the new york institute. if i want to kiss my beautiful boyfriend over and over and over again,” he responded, punctuating each “over” with a kiss to magnus’ lips. “i can. especially when said beautiful boyfriend is the high warlock of brooklyn.” magnus scrunched up his nose when alec poked his chest to emphasize his point.
“well, you’ve won me over with that argument.” magnus said and he pulled alec in for a kiss by the back of his neck, thier lips meeting like waves crashing but muted, passionate but still gentle.
“somebody’s in love!” a gleeful voice shouted and they pulled apart to see jace and isabelle watching the scene, smirking triumphantly.
“jace, have you ever seen anything so beautiful?” isabelle turned to jace and pretended to wipe a fake tear away.
jace sniffled loudly and put his arm around her, acting as if his body was being rocked with sobs. “no, it’s just-WHAT WAS LOVE BEFORE ALEC LIGHTWOOD AND MAGNUS BANE?!” alec rolled his eyes but he smiled, knowing that his siblings’ teasing only indicated how truly happy they were for him.
“of course i’m in love with magnus. have you met him?” alec asked and magnus looked at him adoringly, tucking himself into his side and putting a hand on his lower back. alec kissed his temple and he made a face at isabelle and jace, who had just erupted in shrieks of “ooooooooh!!!!!!” as if they were five year olds.
“very mature, your brother and sister.” magnus chuckled when they rounded the corner and his heart skipped a beat when alec intertwined his fingers with magnus’.
“they’re just jealous cause i have you.” alec replied and magnus stopped him suddenly, wrapping his arms around his neck, a cheeky grin on his face.
“i think somebody’s in loveeeeeee.” he taunted lovingly, using the same tone of voice jace had when he had shouted out to them a couple of minutes ago.
“well, you’re not wrong.” alec shrugged and captured magnus’ lips in his only, beaming against his lips when magnus murmured “that makes the two of us” and pulled him closer by his jacket, the stain glass window in the hallway casting a colorful, heavenly glow on the couple so lost in each other and in love.
