Clary pov

  I was brought back to the light. I could see more clearly. I wasn't stuck in a black room. I open my eyes to see Izzy only 2 inches away from my face. I'm still fuzzy but decide to look around her to see Alec holding Magnus. He looks drained and tired.

  "You're- you're awake." Izzy says breathing heavily. She latches on to me, giving me a big hug. "Iz...can't...breath" I harshly say and she lets go. "I'm just so glad you're okay." She says with tears forming in her eyes. She doesn't really strike me to the crying type.

  "Thank you." I say and I hold her hands. "And I felt you there. The whole time, all of you." And they all look down at me. "Where's Jace?" I say hoping he's okay. "Sleeping... he hasn't slept in days. He's been so worried." Izzy says.

  "And the war? Tell me we won." I say desperately. Izzy stands up and walks next to Alec and Magnus. "Do you know? I haven't been really thinking about it; I've been so worried about clary." Izzy says to them. "No we don't know." Magnus says shrugging.

  "So you're all telling me... that we could literally be run over by demons as we speak and none of you have any idea on what's going on?" I say flabbergasted.

"I mean... I'm sure we would know..." Izzy says and turns around and mumbles "maybe". I get up slowly, trying not to cause myself more pain from where I was stabbed. "Find out if we won, if Jonathan is still alive, who killed him... I want to know everything." I say looking at them and they nod.

I slowly walk to jaces room and see him sleeping. You can tell he hasn't slept in days. He rustles in his bed and tosses himself into different positions every few minutes. You can tell he is having a hard time sleeping. I sit in a chair on the other side of the room and watch him sleep while sketching him.

I sit there for about an hour sitting there, waiting for him to wake. Magnus has given me some gross concoction he had made to help with the pain and healing process.

I suddenly hear him grown and look up to see his eyes slowly opening. "Jace." I whisper to myself and go to where he is laying. "Red... you're okay. You're really okay." He says sounding relieved and holding my face.

"None of us thought you would make it. And here you are..." he says.

"Here I am. And I'm not going anywhere. I'm right here." I say back and he kisses my forehead.

"Let me take you somewhere tonight." He says into my hair as he holds me. "If you're up for it. I know you must be in so much pain." He adds. "I'm up for anything with you." And we lay there in silence, just holding each other, and laying there in his bed not saying anything and listening to each other breath.

A/N okay, okay, yes I know this is hella short. And I also said this would be up like 3 days ago. But it's only easy for me to write when I know where I wanna go with the story. And I finally do. So I PROMISE the next (and most likely last) chapter will be up later today. I love you, and thank you for reading this book.
