TID couples (2/6)
Gabriel Lightwood (worm) and Cecily Herondale
❝Why are we bringing him along, again?“ Will inquired, of the world in general as well as his sister.
Cecily put her hands on her hips. “Why are you bringing Tessa?”
“Because Tessa and I are going to be married,” Will said, and Tessa smiled; the way that Will’s little sister could ruffle his feathers like no one else was still amusing to her.
“Well, Gabriel and I might well be married,” Cecily said. “Someday.”
Gabriel made a choking noise, and turned an alarming shade of purple.
Will threw up his hands. “You can’t be married Cecily! You’re only fifteen! When I get married, I’ll be eighteen! An adult!”
Cecily did not look impressed. “We may have a long engagement,” she said. “But I cannot see why you are counseling me to marry a man my parents have never met.”
Will sputtered. “I am not counseling you to marry a man your parents have never met!”
“Then we are in agreement. Gabriel must meet Mom and Dad.❞

People saw us as an object to control. As a means to get what they want. They thought they could treat us as something less human. Intensively trained, and conditioned, to be a killing machine, created to be a monster… …but no one is beyond redemption. (@rock-and-rollins)
