for the writing prompts: "i adore you" for malec 🕊
“i adore you.”
the expression on alec’s face changed from a happy, playful grin to a look of utter shock, as if he wasn’t aware of the fact that magnus was madly in love with him. they were sitting on the couch, the tv flickering almost lazily in front of them. magnus’ reading glasses were sliding off of alec’s nose slowly, almost comically, alec having been in a rather cheeky mood and plucking them off of magnus’ nose and trying them on for himself. The sight of seeing alec blinking rapidly as he tried to adjust his eyes to the prescription, the round frames making alec look even more precious than he was and magnus had let out a giggle, shaking his head in astonishment and disbelief as alec scrunched up his nose adorably, a smile on his face.
“me too,” alec replied quietly, almost a whisper, but his eyes widened, the glasses making them look even bigger, and he added on rapidly, “i mean, not that i adore me as well, but that i adore you. so, so much.”
magnus chuckled and slowly, almost intimately, reached out and removed the glasses on alec’s faces, his fingers brushing against alec’s skin and causes the younger man to shiver. magnus set them down on the table and snuggled into alec’s side, who put his arms around him.
“i’m so glad i met you,” magnus sighs, tracing a rune on alec’s arm absentmindedly and alec inhales sharply through his nose. it takes him a moment to respond with, “yeah.” a simple, short reply but it holds so much meaning and there’s so much sincerity in his voice that magnus’ heart melts.
“i’m really glad i met you, too.”
