Alec snapped out of his thoughts as the teacher called his name. Panicking Alec skimmed the page in front of him, looking for an answer. Then he realized he didn’t even know what the question was.
“I…uh” Seeing his panic Magnus who sat besides him whispered the answer under his breath loud enough for Alec to hear.
“217!” Alec yelled the answer as Magnus gave him a glare.
“Yes, Mr. Lightwood you don’t have to yell it.” The teacher glared at Alec while Magnus shot him a ‘wtf’ look.
Cowering, Alec mumbled a sorry as he looked down at his table.
Sighing besides him Magnus shook his head at his classmate’s stupidity.

Drawing the last lines on his drawing, Alec scratched his head as he looked the drawing over. It didn’t look quite right.
A poke in his side caught Alec’s attention. Meeting Magnus’ eyes he realized that once again he had failed at paying attention.

The problem was that he hadn’t even opened his book.
“Mr. Bane what do you think you are doing?” Stopping wide eyed, Magnus met the teacher’s angry gaze as he realized they had been caught.
“Detention! Both of you.” Both of the boys dropped their heads on the table groaning simultaneously.
Great. Just great. Alec thought while meeting Magnus’ eyes. At least they were together
