Thank you so much for 85k reads. It means a lot. I love you all.


After getting Magnus to portal me to my room, I collapsed onto the bed, tired. Can a moment of peace ever happen in the life of a shadowhunter? No.

I rolled my eyes at myself before standing up, hoping to find Kane and get this over with as quickly as possible.

I found Judy, and I smiled, glad my friend was back. "How was Canada?" I asked.

She shrugged. "Hated it. That stupid Jared boy was there."

I raised a brow. "Or maybe you secretly loved it." I teased her. "You two had some history, right?"

"Regretted history," she corrected.

"Well, as much as I would to keep talking to you, love, I'm a woman on a mission today. Have you seen Kane?"

She snorted. "As a matter of fact, I have. He's tending to Lindsey and a few others. Idiots apparently walked blindly into a trap. They're lucky they all survived."

"Thanks," I nodded.

Kane was bandaging the arm of a dark blue haired female when I entered the infirmary. I waited until he was done and for the woman to leave.

She left as quickly as possible. Good thing. No way would I want rumours of this circling around the Institute.

"That lot ran into a place full of Ravenor demons," he began. "Some of them needed a transfusion. A bloody iratze wouldn't be enough."

I hopped onto the bed. "I of all people knew that. Not so long ago, I needed one as well if you'd recall."

Kane hopped onto the bed opposite mine. "Enough of this, Ames. I know that look. What happened?"

I sighed. "I need you to take my blood, Kane."

"You don't—"

"There's a possibility that I'm pregnant, and I need to find out if it's true."

His eyes widened, immediately hopping off and I watched as he puts on gloves and searched the cabinet.

He pulled out a syringe, and I inwardly cringed. I wasn't necessarily afraid of needles. I was afraid of the fact that the medic would sometimes be unable to find a vein and would have to repeatedly insert the needle back in.

But... I trusted Kane, but I'm still gonna hope it'll all be done in one go.

He started dabbing a cotton filled with alcohol on my skin. "Try not to move, alright. Trust me, this'll all be over soon."

I nodded and shut my eyes, and before I knew it, it was over.

He pressed a cotton ball onto the skin were the needle once was. He then used medical tape to tape the cotton to the inside of my arm. "I'll call you when I have the results." Kane said, transferring the drawn blood into a vial.

"Kane, thank you." I breathed out.

"No problem, Ames."

I dialled Alec's number and told him that Kane would call me when he got the results.

"That's good," he said. "Anyway, we found to try and fix Jace."


"Magnus is going to cast a spell. Put us in Jace's mind. We know he's trapped in there somewhere."
