don’t give up on love. fight for it, like your brother
“Isabelle.” Maryse grabbed her daughter by the arm, stopping her. “Have you seen Alec? I’ve been looking all over and I can’t find him. Max has been asking for him.”
“He’s…not up to talking to anyone right now.” Maryse knew Isabelle was covering for Alec by the way she wouldn’t look her in the eye.
“Something happened with Magnus. I don’t know what, he won’t talk to anyone, not even Jace. He locked himself in his room and is refusing to come out.”
That wasn’t the Alec Maryse knew. The Alec she knew never let anything get to him, he just brushed it off and kept going. To know that he was holed up in his room, not talking to even his parabatai threw her for a loop. Maybe she didn’t know her son as well as she thought she did.
“Well, I’m going to make him talk to me.”
She started to walk off, but Isabelle grabbed her arm before she could get very far. “Mom, wait. I know you tend to use our full names when you want us to listen to you, but please don’t call him Alexander.”
