Pairing: Alec Lightwood x Reader
The last few days at the Institute had been terribly boring. Nothing had happened, the city was calm and there was no sign of demons. It didn’t happen much so you had been told to enjoy those little moments but it was hard to do such thing when it was so dull. Izzy and Clary had gone shopping, Jace was training and Alec was probably training too or at the library being a nerd as usual. It wasn’t until the middle of the afternoon when you came up with an idea.
“Where were you? I’ve been looking for you all around the Institute”, Alec said walking into your room hours later.
“Shopping” you smiled widely.
“I didn’t know you had gone with Izzy and Clary” he commented.
“Oh no, no that kind of shopping” you chuckled. “I bought a Wii!” You told him excited.
You had a lot of money from your heritage and you never knew how to spend the money since everything was given to you by the Institute. But finally you had found a perfect investment. You used to play Wii at your cousins’ place when you were little, before your parents told you about the ShadowWorld and your life changed.
It had been a long time since that moment but you still loved these games as much as Jace loved his looks. Probably you were a little rusty since it had been a long time since the last time you played, but you were probably still good.
“A what?” Alec frowned confused.
“You gotta be kidding me” you laughed but his face didn’t change. “Are you seriously telling me you don’t know what the Wii is?” You asked. He thought for a few moments but finally he shook his head. “X-Box? PlayStation? Nintendo DS?” All the time he just shook his head. “Oh my God, you’ve been living here in New York for how long? And you don’t know anything about videogames! That has to change. Now” you told him and took his hand.
You had convinced the head of the Institute to place the video console in one of the computer rooms with the condition of stop playing whenever the room was needed. And of course, after making you promise that playing wouldn’t interfere with your duties as a Shadowhunter. You didn’t have a problem with that. Fighting demons was much funnier than every single videogame in the world.
When you two arrived at the computer room you closed the door and started explaining Alec how the console worked. The only game you had bought was Wii Sports because you weren’t able to choose one so you would just wait for Simon to come to the Institute to decide since he would probably know some good games.
“Ok…so I move this and my…well, that thing that is supposed to look like me moves at the same time?” Alec asked when you finished explaining how to play tennis.
“That’s right, Lightwood” you smiled at him. “Are you ready?” You asked.
“I guess so” he shrugged.
“Don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you” you chuckled.
Alec rolled his eyes with his eyes fixed on the screen while you started the game. Of course he missed many times, giving you so many victories to brag about.
“Once again”, he said after the third time.
“Really? I’ve kicked your ass three times in a row. Have some dignity Alec” you teased him. He narrowed his eyes at you.
“Now” he commanded.
You laughed and shrugged before starting the game again. This time, Alec was agiler, like he knew what he was doing all of sudden instead of moving the console like he was killing flies.
“Ready?” You heard him say.
“For what?” You laughed.
“This” he said.
Suddenly his game became fierce and fast, almost impossible to follow, like he had been playing his whole life. It was impossible for you to catch the balls and before you could realise it, you had lost.
“What was that!?” You exclaimed. He turned to look at you with a huge smirk on his face.
“As you said…I’ve been living in New York for too long. Did you really believe I didn’t know what the Wii was?” He asked.
“You cheated!” You exclaimed making him laugh.
“No, I didn’t. You were just too innocent” he smiled cocky. “Let me introduce to the three times winner of the Institute Championship of Wii Sports” he added.
“You’re kidding right?” You asked.
“Jace has one in his room” he laughed out loud. “But hey, you’ll improve” he winked at you before he walked out of the room, leaving you completely speechless.
