Flufftober Day 19: Past
Magnus comes home to the odd sight of Alec, Cat and Raphael seated together in the living room.
It’s a strange picture; Alec is on the floor sitting against the armchair while both Cat and Raphael are sitting on the couch.
All three of them seem to freeze in place when they see Magnus looking at them from the doorway.
“Hey,” Cat says with a brilliant smile. One that Magnus knows means she’s been caught doing something she wasn’t meant to.
Hi,” Magnus replies, looking at each of them slowly.
Raphael looks terribly amused though he’s hiding it well, Alec looks like he’s trying not to laugh, and Cat is smiling innocently back at him.
“What are you guys doing?” He asks and Alec actually laughs, apparently unable to stop himself any longer..”
He quickly quiets himself and bites his lip, still smiling.
“Cat and Raphael were telling me about how you got banned from Peru,” he says, looking at Cat as he says it.
Magnus feels his eyes widen and he turns on Cat and Raphael.
Raphael just shrugs, seemingly unfazed by Magnus outburst. Cat laughs and raises her eyebrows.
“What? He was curious. Who were we to deprive him of such a great story.”
Magnus glares at his so called friends and turns back to Alec, who is now leaning on his hands and watching the three of them with poorly concealed amusement.
“Whatever they told you, it’s all lies,” he says, throwing another glare over his shoulder at his friends.
Alec laughs and nods, “of course.”
He’s doing that face. All raised eyebrows and wide eyes. Magnus knows he’s lying.
“Liar,” he mutters and moves to sit on the ground next to Alec.
“Traitors, all of you,” he says, and groans when all they do is laugh.
Two can play this game though. Magnus feels his lips quirk up into an evil grin as he turns to Alec delightedly.
“If you liked the Peru story, you’d love to hear about that time in 1877 when Cat-“
He’s cut off when Cat jumps on him and slaps a hand quickly over his mouth.
Raphael rolls his eyes and Alec starts laughing so hard he can’t stop, as Magnus wrestles Cat off of him and mouths a ‘later’ in Alec’s direction.
He loves his friends. Even if they do like to tell embarrassing stories about him.
