Hello again :) First I wanna thank everyone of you for the reviews and the faves and alerts, you guys are awesome :') and the sweet anon with the great ideas for Will's child, I can't tell you yet if I'm going with a baby boy or girl, but I'll take your suggestions in consideration, thanks a lot :3
Now as for the story, you see, this chapter has played out differently from what I originally planned, but I liked it as much, and I hope you do as well :))
You already know I own nothing, Cassie does... poor me *sighs*
It took every ounce of persuasion that Tessa had to convince Will against running around London telling people that his wife was pregnant.
Right after Tessa told Will the news, which was a week ago, he had kissed her and danced around with her in a manner that would put little happy kids to shame, and Tessa was thrilled with it. Except that when Will wanted to deliver the news to Charlotte and the others, Tessa had stopped him, saying that he may want to wait for a couple of days before he did just that.
At first Will was confused by his wife's request, but then he went with it, if a little skeptically.
Of course, Will didn't know by then what Tessa new, and honestly this one wasn't her news to deliver, so she kept quiet, knowing that he'll find out by evening.
Leaning back in her seat and closing her eyes, Tessa remembered clearly how her husband was shocked for the second time that day.
Will and Tessa were heading to the dinning room to have a very special meal. That day the shadowhunters' mission of an entire year was finally completed: James Carstairs was now officially cured.
It all began a year ago, when Magnus has burst into the institute shouting that he "Figured it out", he kept running around like a singing mad man, until William managed to have him seated and talking properly. Only then did Magnus let out that he had tricked a cure for Jem out of some demon, and all they had to do was catch the right amount of that demon's species and "charm" a medicine out of their blood.
Catching the demons has proven utterly hard, and making James drink whatever potion Magnus made was even harder, but after an entire year, the silent brothers have examined Jem and told him that the sickness was out.
So now they were all celebrating that miracle by making the fanciest dinner the institute can afford, and having a ball afterwards.
Normally William was besides himself because his Parabatai was cured, add Tessa's pregnancy to that and he almost took flight.
If only he knew what else awaits him, Tessa mused to herself.
Once they made it into the dinning room, Tessa felt her stomach growl in a very un-lady like manner.
William chuckled and looked at her "Are you hungry love?" he asked
And in defense of her, Tessa whisper- hissed at him saying "It's because of the baby"
In an instant Will flew to the table and started fishing for a plate.
"William, I can wait for a few minutes" Tessa said laughing, as she headed to him and eased the silverware out of his hands.
"Nonsense," contracted Will "you need your strength, you have to eat something"
He was so earnest and worried that Tessa had the urge to kiss his frown away, but giving how they were in the dinning room and someone may walk in on them, she settled for stroking his cheek and smiling up at him.
"I'm fine—" Tessa began to say, when the rest of the party arrived and walked into the room in a mass of noises.
"I've confirmed to you numerous times that the cure would work" Magnus was saying in an offended tone to both Charlotte and Henry.
"Oh dear Magnus, we believed you alright," answered Henry "Still, seeing it happen, it was just…so…" and Henry was a loss for words, which was completely understandable.
Charlotte has joined the conversation by then, but Magnus's mind was elsewhere: he was watching both Tessa and Will closely, trying to guess if Will knows yet.
Tessa smiled at him and gave him a nod, and in a matter of seconds he was beaming back at her and Will.
At the same time, Cecily and Jem arrived to the room, arm in arm.
"Let the celebration begin," sang Gideon as he brought the last of the dishes out of the kitchen, his wife Sophie emerging behind him.
An hour later, the dinner was done and the ball about to start, when a flushing Jem cleared his throat.
"Um, William" he addressed Will, "may I speak to you in private?"
Will raised an eyebrow, then got up and went out of the room with his blood brother.
Everyone at the table looked curious, except for Cecily who ducked her head to hide a fierce blush, and Magnus who winked at Tessa.
James was asking William permission to propose to Cecily.
Opening her eyes, Tessa chuckled at how shocked, yet happy, William seemed that day.
Tessa has known that this was going to happen, since Cecily trusted Tess with her secrets. However Will didn't even know that Jem and Cecily fancied, or loved, each other until that very night. So when he and Tessa went back to their chambers, he had accused her of plotting with his sister, James and Magnus behind his back, and she had laughed at how childlike he sounded.
A light click sounded as the door opened and Will walked in. He held a book in one hand, and an apple in the other. His hair was tousled, locks as dark as night brushing his lashes, and his blue eyes shone like the ocean at its finest.
"You're awake," he mused, as he got closer to Tessa.
"I had to dress up for breakfast," she smiled at him "Charlotte said we're all to have it downstairs with Henry and her"
Will brushed a light kiss on Tessa's forehead, making her heart flutter, and then laid down the book and the able on the small table near the window.
"So we're ready?" Will pulled Tessa out of the chair, hugging her close to him. She knew he wasn't talking about the breakfast or their appearance but she stalled anyway.
"Not until you fix that hair of yours," she pulled away slightly and smoothed his hair out of his eyes "you look like Henry on a bad day"
That was a lie, Tessa adored how her husband looked at all times, and especially when he had his hair messily covering his eyes; it gave her an excuse to brush it away with her hand.
"You know that's not what I'm talking about," said Will as he softly caressed her cheek.
"I know," she said, blushing beat red "It's just that I'm embarrassed" saying this, she buried her face in his shirt: making sure he can't see her.
Will laughed softly: a heavenly sound that made Tessa flush with something other than embarrassment.
"You're embarrassed of telling them you're pregnant?" guessed Will in an amused tone.
"Yes.." mumbled Tessa in his shirt.
"Oh. Darling, most of them are married," winked Will "I believe they're familiar with the process: nothing to be embarrassed about"
"William!" hissed Tessa, feeling her face burning that much hotter now. One look at this and Will will be laughing like the devil he is.
"Fine, I apologize" said Will, who didn't sound sorry in the least, if anything: he sounded on the verge of laughing.
"You're terrible," accused Tessa, still buried in his chest.
Reaching a warm hand, Will lifted Tessa's face to his.
"And you're adorable" he said, then kissed her.
Devil's spawn or not, William Herondale knew how to make a girl swoon.
Pulling away and seeing his wife's dreamy gaze, Will smirked. Offering her his arm, he said "Shall we?"
"I hope Charlotte invited Magnus" Tessa muttered, and Will chuckled again.
"Easy Tess," he whispered to her "it's alright. We're ready to tell them"
"We're ready" repeated Tessa. If only her reddening cheeks would agree to this.
There goes another chapter! At first I thought I'll have flashbacks of the wedding night and other things in this chapter -oh god, I meant the being a warlock issue you pervs, not that "other things" xD - but I ended up writing about Jem's happy ending, because let's face it: he totally deserves one :3
Next chapter however we'll have more Will/Tessa fluff ;) oh and do you guys wanna know more about the other shadowhunters? or should we stick to Tess and Will only?
So, tell me what you think :)
now, reviews? pretty please? :3
