When Alec’s phone pings loudly in the afternoon quiet of the loft, he sighs with relief, the message a welcome distraction from the Institute’s financial reports. The pen clatters onto the coffee table from Alec’s hand as he picks up his cell, swiping eagerly across the screen.
“I’ll be home in 15, see you soon,” reads the message signed under Magnus’ name; Alec smiles, lips pressing into a curved line. He throws the phone haphazardly onto the pillows, then disentangles himself from the plush blanket that kept him company for the last hour or so, along with the now empty cup of green tea. He carries the mug into the kitchen, eyes drifting over the adorably wonky drawings stuck to the fridge, each held up by animal magnets. His favorite is right in the center - three people, one with a bow, one with blue around the arms, holding hands with a smaller figure smiling wide.
