“She is not going. She is not a weapon, mom!” Alec shouts. “Too many people are aware of her abilities, every time she goes out there she is put in danger!”
“There are demons attacking mundanes, Alec. All our soldiers are out there, but it is not enough. We already lost ten people, we’ll loose ten more by the end of the night without her! Shadowhunters are dying while we’re discussing this!”
“Our teams are well trained, we dealt with this before we knew about her. Death is a part of our job, and as much as I hate loosing my people, I am not putting her life in jeopardy. This is not her battle” he states, ready to leave.
“What is her battle, Alec. What is she worth of if she doesn’t use her magic to save people? Right now, she’s useless. There’s no need for her to stick around if she doesn’t serve a purpose for our cause.”
“Don’t you ever speak about her like that. Never again” Alec turns around, his eyes sending daggers. If looks could kill. “She is here because of me. Because she linked my life to hers in order to save me. People like you are the reason why she stays under radar, you use her. She steps in when I ask her to, when I am sure I can protect her. And right now, I can’t. There’s too many demons, to many witnesses.”
“You need to be realistic. Last night she literally sat a whole group of vampires on fire with nothing but a glare. Y/N is powerful.”
“You need to stop doing that!” Alec shouts at me. “I get that you are powerful, but you can’t put your life in danger just for the sake of it!”
“Alec calm down! I’m not a kid, I can take care of myself!
"You are not immortal Y/N! I can’t have you die on me, just go back to your old life and stay of supernatural business.”
“Do you want me to leave, to go back to London?” I ask, hurt.
“No. I-” he calms down, his eyes turning soft. “I don’t want to you to go back to London. I want you to get a job, I want us to argue about me coming home late, you coming home drunk, boys flirting with you. I want us to go back to normal. I want us to be normal.”
“But we can’t, Alec. Our entire relationship is not normal!” I exclaim.
“Don’t say that. It sounds like you regret saving my life, linking our lives” he whispers.
I sigh, put a hand on his cheek in order to force him to look at me in the eyes. “Don’t you ever say that. I regret nothing, baby. I would do it all over again if I had to. I love you. The fact that we are linked probably helped the process of me falling in love with you, but let’s face it: I would have fallen in love with you if we had met under other circumstances. We are meant to be. Don’t you ever doubt our love.” Alec wraps his arms around me, pulling me to his chest. “I love you, I can’t loose you” he speaks quietly, his chin resting on my head.
Two years passed since I saved his life. Since I linked our lives. Since he changed my life. We fell for each other pretty quickly, the link probably helping. At first I had try the old method: having a job, going out with friends, not getting involved in the supernatural world. But I always that feeling. I felt when Alec was hurt. When he was scared. And I just couldn’t concentrate on a normal life while he was out there fighting demons I could get ride of with a blink of an eye. So I got involved, and he hates it. Alec is a protector, he just can’t help it.
“Come on, they need us out there.”
As we step into an alley, dozens of demons appear out of nowhere. Alec steps in front of me, ready to fire his arrows. I stay behind the group, only stepping in when needed, as agreed. As the group steps closer to the demons, more of them appear behind us, we are trapped. I look up and notice demons standing at the edge of the buildings surrounding us. “Do you mind if I do my thing? I am not carrying your corpses back to the institute, dead bodies are heavy as shit” I speak. “Mind your language” Alec says, “do your thing but stick with us. Make a circle around her” he commands. I sigh, raising a brow. “Done, where to now?” I ask, turning to Alexander. He rolls his eyes, leading the way out of the alley. “I’ll never get use to this” Jace sighs. Jace tends to feel useless when I’m around, everyone knows how much he loves to show off with his ninja moves.
It had been eventful. You had roamed the streets all night long, killing demons after demons. The shadowhunters bodies were hurting from all the fighting and my energy was all gone. I kiss Alec’s jawline, waiting for Maia to bring our orders back. “Get a room, you two!” Jace laughs. I kick his leg under the table and he mocks me pretending to be in pain. “You have something” I mention to Simon, pointing to the blood on his chin. He quickly swipes it off, smiling, his fangs showing. As he places a hand over his mouth I can’t help but giggle. Simon is so bad at all this vampire stuff, I never met a baby vampire before, they are not as lethal as they are said to be.
“Yes, thank you Maia!” Clary shouts, causing mundanes to turn to us. “Sorry, I’m just really hungry.”
“I can see that. So, you’re off to Idris tomorrow?” Isabelle asks her brother.
“Its just a week” he responds, eyeing me. “Just a week” he repeats after my displeased grunt.
“And of course you’re leaving me in charge of the grumpy one! When is Theo coming back anyway, my ears could use some rest” Jace speaks, swallowing his food. “I am telling you, if you think Simon talks a lot, you never witnessed this one when you’re not around. She can’t stop complaining.”
“I wouldn’t complain if Alec sticked around” I defend.
“Yeah, and the whole empty feeling is not nice either! Quick reminder that I feel it too, if you don’t care about her think about me!”
“Hey!” I say, throwing my napkin at him. “And Theo is coming back in a few days. I bet Izzy can’t wait.”
“Alright, we need to go back mom just texted me” Isabelle says, getting up.
“No she didn’t, you’re phone is in my pocket” Alec speaks up.
“Shut up” she mentions, slapping the back of his head.
“Who is this?” a woman asks Maryse, pointing at me.
“I’m right here, talk to my face. I don’t know who you are, Mrs Uptight, but you may want to take that stick out of your ass when speaking to me. I respond to no authority” I bark, stepping in front of Alexander.
“Alright, we’re headed bed. I’ll talk to you later” Alec mentions his mother, dragging me to the stairs. “You can’t yell at people like that, Y/N. She is a part of the Clave.”
“Being a member of the Clave doesn’t make her unattainable. I could make her burst into glitter. Oh! Or I could make glitter burst out of her ass!” I says, as excited as a child on christmas.
Alec laughs, opening the bedroom door and gently pushing me inside. “I won’t do it if you don’t go to Idris” I challenge. He smiles and kisses me deep and slow. “Bed, baby. You’re getting out of control” he pushes me down on the mattress. “I love you.”
