“You know,” said Alec, “I always got that our job was saving the world, but it’s way more terrifying now that Max is here.”
“Excuse me,” said Magnus, “maybe your job is saving the world. My job is harder to summarize, but a significant portion is just about looking good.”
“That’s my sister,” said Alec. “I didn’t need to know that.” He looked over at his mother, who was, or was pretending to be, deep in conversation with Kadir.
“At least you didn’t have to hear it,” said Clary.
The corner of Jace’s lip twitched. “I guess Simon has realized that rather than dwelling on life’s uncertainties, you should spend quality time with people you love.”
“Dear God,” said Alec, “I am removing myself and my baby from this conversation.”
“If you’ve decided that Sammael, of all people, is not powerful enough for you…” Magnus shook his head. “You’re one hard-to-please lady, you know that?”
Magnus looked at the woman. “Now what?” he shouted over the roar of the fire and the exclamations of the crowd.
The woman goggled at him. “Now what?” she yelled. “This is your rescue!”
“I’ve never done this before!” he yelled back.
“How about we run?” the woman suggested. Magnus stared at her stupidly for a moment, and she shook her head. “Good God, I’ve been rescued by an idiot!”
Magnus could barely find his voice. “He said—she called me—they said I was cursed.”
Ragnor came closer. “And do you always let other people tell you what you are?”
Magnus was silent.
“Because they will always try.” said Ragnor.
Jace said, “Did it give you any insight? Into what we should do?”
Alec was looking at Magnus. “Not fail.”
“If you want to fight,” said Magnus lightly, “I’ll have to put you on my calendar. I can’t possibly do anything before I’ve eaten.”
“I’m sure Max will be fine,” said Maia.
“Honestly, I’m more worried about my mother,” said Alec.
“Everyone,” Tian went on, “these are Gan Jiang and Mo Ye, the greatest living faerie weaponsmiths.”
“Nonsense!” said Gan Jiang. “We’re also better than any of the dead ones.”
“Can we see the glowing fissure in your chest?” Simon asked.
“Simon, it’s rude to bring up glowing fissures in other people’s chests” said Clary.
