He Left To Keep Me Safe || Clalec || Book On...
"Alec! Please, I can't lose you." I pleaded with tears streaming down my face. "Not when I just got you back," I whisper when he cups my cheeks.
"Clary, I need you to be strong. You have to be, okay?" He says and I swore I saw tears building up in his eyes. "I will find my way back to you, I promise." Alec says and he stares into my eyes. He wiped away the tears running down my cheeks with his thumbs and I only felt more roll down.
"Don't die, Alec. Please, don't die." I whisper softly.
"I won't die. Not as long as I know your alive and safe. I'm doing this to keep you safe." Alec explains.
"Wrap it up, you two!" Valentine shouts from behind us. We chose to ignore him and Alec held me as I cried into his chest.
"I love you, Clary Fray." Alec whispers in my ear kissing the top of me head.
"I love you, Alec Lightwood." I whispered back breaking out of the hug. "Come back to me," I tell him. I didn't want him to go, I wanted to go through with what I had planned with Izzy, Jace, and Simon but I can't seem to. If I do then everyone I love would suffer and if I don't then Alec would be the one suffering.
"I will." I hear Alec whisper just before he disappears with Valentine and Sebastian. I fell to the floor sobbing, Jace came over to me and helped me up. I cried into his chest while Izzy and Simon went to get the van. I didn't want to this to be true, I wanted all this to be some sick dream that I wake up from with Alec lying there right besides me to comfort me. But unfortunately this isn't a dream, this is my reality.
"Come on, Clary." Jace whispers softly. "Let's get you in the van." He lifts me up bridal style and carries me into the van setting me on a seat. Simon started to drive and continued to cry into Jace's chest causing his shirt to get soaked. My sobs finally became quite and I listened to the sound of Jace's heartbeat letting sleep consume me...
