happy birthday @softshadowmoon! it’s late but you know how much love i put into it ❤️ i love you buddy.
there in the forest, above the heavy foliage, twilight had fallen in a strange hazy way, darkness curling around the base of the trees. for a while it was just that thick blue green kind of darkness that made everything a little obscure, although the sky was still light with the last of the sun. then at some point as the sound of the crickets in the brush rose, little dots of yellow light rose with it, fireflies hanging in the air and making it look like the forest was lined with tiny droplets of gold.
their boots were quiet on the path as they made their way carefully over small fallen logs and past twisted tree roots. their fingers were entwined and had been the entire time, alec’s hand slightly cool to the touch against the warmth of magnus’s palm. every time magnus glanced back, the look on alec’s face was one of awe and confusion, following after magnus carefully, his black boots searching for footing on the uneven ground.
“can you tell me where we’re going yet?” the trees were thicker here and alec’s voice was quiet, hushed almost in the reverent stillness of the forest. the birds were nearly quiet by then too, small animals still rustling in the brush and magnus smiled to himself as they continued, the beaten path trailing off and around a stand of trees.
“not much further,” magnus replied, just as hushed, similar to all of the enigmatic replies he’d been giving alec since they stepped through the portal into the middle of the forest.
That shine on my face is sweat 😭 there was way too many people at the gym to take a selfie 😏 so I took one right when I got home (excuse the messy room)
A accomplished a few things today. I did 5 mins on the stair master (a personal best!) and I did legs after 💪 and for a non-scale victory, this sweater used to be really tight, but now it’s got some give 😁
