warlock of brooklyn

the kind of conversations and kisses we need

Magnus picked up the freshly brewed pot of coffee and brought it over to the dining table where Alec was already seated with a plate of pancakes. Alec looked up at Magnus as he sat down next to him.

“More?” asked Magnus, holding up the pot of coffee.

Alec nodded. “Yeah, thanks,” he said as he held the cup steady. Alec took a sip and immediately felt more awake than he already was. He took a bite of the brilliant pancakes Magnus had conjured up, amazed that he was able to have breakfasts like this everyday.

Smiling contently, Magnus sipped his coffee and let his free hand play with Alec’s. He could feel every callous and scar on Alec’s hand. And Alec relished in the soft, smooth texture of Magnus’ fingers, playing with the man’s many rings. Alec’s smile widened as he wiggled his fingers and dodged Magnus’ attempts to hold his hand. Finally giving in, Alec let Magnus take a hold of it.

Putting his coffee down, Alec tried to pull his right hand back in order to continue eating but Magnus only held on tighter. Alec looked up at Magnus with a questioning look. Magnus just buried his smile in a mouthful of pancake. Sighing, Alec tried to pick up his fork with his left hand, his non-dominant hand. Sure, Alec could slay a demon with ease, but use his left hand? Forget it. Struggling for what felt like ages, Alec managed to get a grip on the utensil but failed almost immediately.

“No!” Alec exclaimed as the fork fell out of his grasp and cluttered loudly onto the ceramic plate. Magnus let out a laugh and also let go of Alec’s hand, allowing the boy to finish his breakfast in peace. Alec threw Magnus a playful glare through squinted eyes and Magnus smiled smugly while reaching for a pile of his mail.

While he was sifting through it, Alec cleared his throat. “So,” he said. “What’s on today’s agenda for Mr High Warlock of Brooklyn?” He loved teasing his boyfriend with his esteemed title.

Magnus rolled his eyes and smiled at Alec. “Look who’s talking, Mr Head of the New York Institute.” Magnus loved to do the same back.

Alec smile faltered slightly. “Acting Head of the New York Institute,” he corrected with a gesture of his fork. Magnus shrugged in dismissal before taking another bite of his breakfast.

“Speaking of which,” Alec spoke as he checked the time on his phone and sighed. “I should get going.” Magnus pouted but Alec got up and pulled his jacket on, pushing his phone into his back pocket.

He began to walk towards the front door but stopped when Magnus spoke up. “Forgetting something?” he asked, a smirk playing on his lips.

Alec turned around and cocked an eyebrow at his boyfriend. Magnus stared at the boy and tilted his chin upwards. Alec grinned widely and leaned down to give Magnus a quick peck on the lips before pulling apart but staying close.

“Yeah, I am,” he murmured with a sly smirk as he picked up his stele from the table top, twirling it in his fingers.

Magnus scoffed at Alec and pushed his chest away to which Alec laughed. “Love you!” he called, beginning to walk away from Magnus. “I’ll call you later!” he shouted, opening the front door.

“Love you, too!” Magnus called back, licking his lips and smiling to himself.
