Malec + 41 💕
41. “I had a nightmare about you, and I wanted to make sure you were alright.”
Magnus wakes up with a jolt, sweat making his pyjamas stick to his body, his mind clouded with panic, and his only coherent thought being a single word, over and over again. AlecAlecAlec. He barely registers opening a portal, barely puts enough thought into thinking of Alec’s office in the Institute. He steps through the portal, thankfully finding himself where he wanted to go.
But when he looks at the desk, Alec isn’t there. Magnus can now feel even his magic starting to panic, can feel dread rising like bile in his throat, and the fear is so all consuming that he almost jumps out of his skin when he feels a touch on his shoulder.
He turns and finds a pair of hazel eyes looking back at him, a sea of love and concern. Alec. Magnus throws his arms around him without a word, clinging to Alec’s body like it’s his lifeline. Alec tenses for a second, before wrapping his arms around Magnus, and when he presses his face into Magnus’ neck, like he always does, Magnus lets out an almost sobbing sound of relief.
