The sound of the city woke Echo up from her sudden slumber. She jolted awake when a loud car horn sounded. As she slowly opened her eyes she noticed she wasn't in Magnus's lair, but in her room at the Institute. She slowly pushed herself up to a sitting position and took in her attire. She was changed out of the dress, and back into sweats.

Echo was confused; She didn't remember what had happened. She pushed the blanket from her body and swung her legs to the edge of the bed. She kept her head low in fear she would witness the room spinning.

There was a quiet tap on the door and Alec peeked his head in, "Hey, your awake."

Echo lifted her head and blinked, "What happened?"

Alec entered the room, "You passed out at Magnus's."

Echo suddenly remembered, "The demon."

Alec shifted his weight, "Clary killed it."

Echo let out a sigh, "Clary killed the demon? What about our memories?"

Alec folded his arms and shook his head, "They're gone."

Echo lifted her head a little higher, "What do you mean gone?"

"When Clary killed the demon, your memories died with him."

Echo clenched her eyes shut, "Fabulous. Where is she? Clary."

Alec shrugged, "I don't know. Her room maybe? Or with Jace?"

Echo cringed at the mention of Jace.

Alec gave a snort, "What, you don't like Jace?"

Echo shook her head and slowly stood up, "It's not that I don't like the guy, it's that Clary is getting close to him."

Alec just rolled his eyes and Echo caught onto a shift in the room's atmosphere, "You have feelings for Jace?" She spoke this as a question.

Alec shot his head up, "What? No, I don't."

Echo swallowed, "Sorry, I just felt a changed in the air around you."

"A change in the air?"

Echo nodded, "Yeah, it was like I felt an emotion."

Alec's expression softened, "It's fine. Come on let's go find Clary."

Echo followed Alec down the hall until they heard Clary's voice.

"—He said your mother for the cup."

Echo and Alec entered Clary's room, "Who said that?" Alec asked.

Both Jace and Clary looked over, "Valentine. He's with my mother."

Behind Alec, Echo tensed, "And he can speak to you through that?" Echo asked pointing at the necklace in Jace's hand.

"Here in the institute?" Alec took a step forward.

Clary nodded, "It was like when I saw Dot."

Jace looked back at the necklace, "It's a portal shard. That's why your mother made sure you had it."

Echo sword under her breath, "Where are they?"

Clary just shook her head, "I don't know."

"You said you saw them."

Alec took a step forward, "Where there any identifying characteristics?"

Clary was fed up, "I don't remember, it was awful."
