  • Alec, at the institute: *working in his office*
  • Magnus, pushing the door open: Alexander?
  • Alec, looking up: Magnus? What are you doing here? Is everything alright?
  • Magnus: No. It's not.
  • Alec, getting up and walking over to him: What? What's wrong?
  • Magnus: You didn't kiss me this morning before you left. You always kiss me on the forehead if I'm asleep.
  • Alec:
  • Magnus: Always, Alexander. Why not today?
  • Alec: How do you even know if I'm kissing you if you're asleep...?
  • Magnus: If something's bothering you-
  • Alec: No! It's just, you had trouble sleeping last night and I didn't want to risk waking you today. You needed the sleep, Magnus.
  • Magnus: Really, that's why?
  • Alec, kissing him on the forehead: Yeah. Better?
  • Magnus, smiling: Yes, much better.
