[Hello everyone! I am so sorry that I haven't uploaded for a quite long time. It is because college has started again, so it makes it harder to be active... I hope that all of you can understand that... Please make sure to vote and comment!]


Alec and I were both walking towards the centre of the institute. That was the place where mostly everyone got together but by the looks of it no one was there yet. I guess, they were having breakfast.

"Let's go eat before we go our ways." I said as I looked up to Alec. He nodded with a smile as he twinged his fingers into my hands. I smiled at the kind gesture or more a romantic gesture. I guess by now everyone knew that we were together.

As we got in the hall where almost every shadowhunter had breakfast, I saw Isabelle and Jace already sitting down. Alec and I both got our breakfast before sitting with them. Alec decided to sit next to his sister and I sat down next to my brother.

Isabelle looked over at Alec and then at me. Somehow, she looked angry and I had no idea why. Maybe she just had a bad morning...

"Finally, you are here." Jace said as he hugged me. I smiled. I saw he had some bacon in his plate and I took it quickly off him.

"Hey! Hands off my bacon!" He shouted playfully and I laughed softly. I was glad to see that Jace looked happier. I guess the conversation I had with him was needed... We needed it.

We still did not really hear something from Luke but Simon said that he would look into it. I guess I had to trust him on it.

As I was talking to Jace, I could tell that Isabelle and Alec were arguing. I had no idea why but it looked like Isabelle could take off Alec's head here and now. I have never seen her this angry since I have met her and that says a lot. I tried to not pay attention to them and it looked like Jace was trying to do the same thing but when Isabelle slammed her hand hard against the table and left, Jace and I both looked towards Alec.

Alec looked like he was going to blow up. The anger was seen in his eyes. I could see that he tried to calm himself but it didn't look like something or anything was helping him.

"God, what have you done to piss of Isabelle?" Jace asked and I knew that he was joking but looking at Alec's face, he wasn't up for it.

"Really?!" He shouted angry before he stood up and walked away.

"Alec! Wait!" I called but he ignored me. He did not look once behind him to see what I was saying or whether I was following him. I wanted to stand up but my brother, Jace held my wrist and pulled me back.

"Looking at Alec's state, it is better that you stay here. He is angry right now and he might say something that will hurt you. He might regret it later. Just give him time to cool off." Jace said and I just nodded.

I sighed. I had no idea why they were arguing but I couldn't help but to think if it was about the conversation they had before in Alec's room. I knew that Alec was hiding something from me and it wasn't just clave business.

"What is it?" Jace asked as I was again gone into the world of my mind. I looked at him and just shook my head with a smile on my face.

"Nothing, just what happened now." I said and Jace gave me a small smile.

"I know that Alec is difficult but believe me when that guy loves someone, he won't let go." Jace said and I smiled. It made me think... What did Jace mean with that? How does he even know this? Did he ever had someone else before me? It wasn't like he mentioned to me but yet again he was lying to me.

"Did he loved someone else before me?" I asked and I was a bit scared to know what the answer was to my question. What if he did? I don't know if I could live with my jealously then...

"He didn't tell you?" He said but he was asking it more than telling me. It looked like Jace was confused and my face dropped. I was disappointed. I felt the instant urge to cry... I can't believe this. Jace looked at me, still waiting for a reply.

"No..." I whispered and Jace instantly laughed as if he had heard the most funniest joke.

"I am just messing with you. I don't think Alec had a girlfriend before. No, I am sure he hadn't. He doesn't even know how to act with you. Don't worry, you are his first." Jace said and I looked angrily at him.

This was the moment when I wanted to slap Jace.

"I hate you." I muttered underneath my breath. Jace was still looking at me as he was smiling.

"No, you don't hate me. In fact, you love me." He said and I sighed.

"I wish I didn't." I said and Jace chuckled.

"I love you too, little sister." He said and I smiled. Jace pulled me into a hug and both of us left the canteen where we had breakfast.

"Are you going on a mission?" I asked Jace and he nodded.

"They may found some leads that could lead us to Agramon." Jace said and I looked at him. The anger was again underneath my skin, trying to escape and to break out as always.

"I am coming too." I said and I could tell that Jace did not agree with it. He slightly frowned and before he could even say something, I shook my head.

"I need this, Jace. Alec is acting weird. I have nothing to do and perhaps, I want to kick Agramon's ass." I said and I saw Jace smiling.

"I will cover you the whole time. You will listen to me." Jace said and I nodded with a huge smile on my face.

"I will." I said but I knew if Agramon would be there, I would probably try to do something that would hurt him and that would involve Jace trying to stop me. So, yes, I might not.

"Let's go little warrior." He said and I rolled my eyes as he called me little. He wasn't the first one to do so.

I knew that getting out of the institute again would be refreshing for me. Especially when Alec acts weird. I just needed something that would distract me and this was an excuse to do so.
