A/N - So all those pictures of Magnus’ new look got to me and i had to write something and this is what came out. I could of gone further but i wanted to keep it short. Hope you like it.
Alec stood on the raised walked way to give the morning address to the rest of his Shadowhunters. Today couldn’t go fast enough for him because Magnus was due back this evening. He’d been away for two days a special council meeting in Idris to wrap a few things up since Valentine’s death. It was their first separation since they had gotten back together and Alec was taking it hard.
Being away from the man he loved so soon after their break up had been harder than he thought to deal with. It felt like losing him all over again, even though he knew it was completely different this time and that he was going to be coming back to him. It had still left him with a panicky feeling deep within him, a remnant of those horrible days of their separation.
Magnus had been sympathetic, knowing that Alec would have a hard time with his departure and he’d been sending comforting messages of reassurance to him for the entire two days. But last night’s messages had him intrigued.
“I have a surprise for you when I get back tomorrow night. Hope you like it.” It simply said. Alec had laid awake for a long while in their half empty bed, his face buried into Magnus’ pillow, taking in the last vestiges of his exotic scent, trying to think what the somewhat cryptic message could mean. At least he only had till the next evening to find out.
Alec had just begun to speak when movement at the back of the room caught his eye. It was Magnus. What the….? He was back early. Any more coherent words died in his throat immediately at the sight of him. Magnus had casually strolled in to lean against the door frame like it was something he did every day of the week. The way he looked however, was as far away from every day as he could get.
Alec’s wide hungry eyes took in the magnificent sight that was the man he loved. His usually carefully styled hair, moussed into its soft raised spikes had been replaced with the wide wave of a mohawk. A few magenta strands stood out at the front of it, giving him an edgy look. His eye liner looked darker as well, more defined, making those deep brown eyes pop. Alec swallowed hard, trying not to think about what those golden cats like orbs of Magnus’ demon mark would look like in their place. It made his knees weak just thinking about it. And what was that on his ear? He had a new cuff. A moan nearly escaped him as he recognized what it was. A arrow; it fitted the outer curve of his ear.
He wore a long fitted black jacket, a silver chain looping from one shoulder and under his arm. One button fastened it to waist, defining his muscled upper torso in a way that made Alec’s mouth water. A dark printed silk shirt in a deep red showed beneath it and Alec had visions of what that soft whisper of material would feel like in his hands as he removed it from his body and let it fall to the floor of their bedroom.
His lower body was hugged in a pair of black pants and he wore a pair of pointy toed black boots on his feet. Dear God, the man was trying to kill him. He was smiling softly at him, arms crossed over his chest. Alec had been silent long enough that everyone had turned to see what his gaze had been trapped by and a soft murmuring of understanding ran through the crowd.
Alec shot out a hand to grab the rail of the walkway, using every ounce of his will power not to rush down the step and go to the warlock, who knew exactly what he was doing to him.
Jace stepped closer to his parabatai, feeling the tremors of his need running through his own body.
“I’ve got this, man. Go to him.” He whispered to him. Alec turned his face to his and smiled. He put a hand on Jace’s arm in a thankful gesture before starting down the steps. As he passed Izzy he heard her say. “Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do, big bro.” He shot her a grin over his shoulder as he moved through the parted crowd.
Magnus saw him coming and stood up straight, his arms dropping to his sides.
“Hello, Alexander, I…” but he got no further than that as Alec grabbed him by the hand and took him out into the quiet hallway.
He pushed the warlock up against the wall, grabbing both hands and pushing them up either side of his head. He looked deep into his eyes with a look so hot it was making Magnus start to sweat.
“Do you have any idea what the hell you’re doing to me right now?” He growled, his voice deep and breathy. Magnus smiled. Of course, he did. He blinked slowly and when his eyes returned to him Alec saw those two golden orbs with their split pupil looking back at him. By the Angel, he couldn’t breathe anymore.
“You’re gonna be the death or me Magnus Bane.” Alec said in a hoarse whisper and he slammed his mouth down on to his, feeling the warmth and comfort that he had been craving for two days retuning in a rush, flooding every inch of him. He left his lips, only because the need to take a deep breath became overwhelming and trailed soft kisses down his jaw and to his neck. Magnus hummed in delight as he tilted his head to give him access to that irresistible spot on his neck that he knew would drive him wild.
Alec was well versed in finding it now and he clamped his mouth over it in a hungry yawn. Magnus moaned softly, feeling his knees buckling underneath him. He couldn’t take this any longer, he had to have him. Now.
“Alexander, can you spare an hour or …” Alec pulled back to look at him with a need that was almost palpable. They stood facing each other, eyes blown wide, chests heaving.
“Make a portal. Get us home.” He growled and he let go of his hands. Magnus beamed back at him, his dark brows arched elegantly on his brow.
“So, I take it you like my new look?”
Alec growled and kissed him hard yet again.
“Yeah and I think it would look even better crumpled on the floor of our bedroom. Just make the damn portal and get us out of here before I explode.”
Magnus gave a chuckle, waving his hands to create the shimmering disc of light a few feet from them.
“I missed you too, my love.”
They took each other’s hands and stepped into the portal.
