And I'm suppose to sit by while you date boys and fall in love with someone else, get married...?His voice tightened.
And meanwhile, I'll die a little bit more every day, watching.
And now I'm looking at you,he said,
and you're asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before - bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it - but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.
I am a manhe told her,
and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone woman, and bring me something brown.
Is this the part where you say if I hurt her, you'll kill me?
If you hurt Clary she's quite capable of killing you herself. Possibly with a variety of weapons.
I don't remember the Clave inviting you into the Glass City, Magnus Bane.
They didn't,Magnus said.
Your wards are down.
Really?the Consul's voice dripped sarcasm.
I hadn't noticed.
That's terrible. Someone should have told you.He glanced at Luke.
Tell him the wards are down.
Not everything is about you,Clary said furiously.
but you do have to admit that the majority of things are.
People aren't born good or bad. Maybe they're born with tendencies either way, but its the way you live your life that matters.
There is no pretending,Jace said with absolute clarity.
I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.
You could have had anything else in the world, and you asked for me.
But I don't want anything else in the world.
You said you were going for a walk!? What kind of walk takes six hours?
A long one?
I feel like I just have such the blood and bones of a New Yorker that I can almost imagine better, like, giving up the fight and not being able to afford the city and going out West, keeping a small place here, and then when I'm like 80, coming back here, living on the park and going to the theater.
