Hi everybody! This is my second ever fan fiction. If you like this story then check out my first story, Bluebird. This is based off Clockwork Prince, the second book in Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices series. WARNING: May contain spoilers about Clockwork Prince. If you have not read it yet, read at your own risk. In this fan fiction, I was playing around with the idea(which I'm sure plenty of Infernal Devices fans have done) if Will had expressed his love for Tessa before Jem did. So read and enjoy! Please leave reviews, I do take what you guys say into account. So.. here it is!
(Introduction Starting from Page 462 in Clockwork Prince)
"I can't wait to tell Jem about our meeting," he said as they mounted the stairs. "He'll never believe that scene- for Gideon to turn on his father like that! It's one thing to tell secrets to Sophie, another to renounce your whole allegiance to your family. Yet he cast away his family ring."
"It is as you said," Tessa said as they turned at the top of the stairs and made their way down the corridor. Will's gloved hand was arm on her arm. "Gideon's in love with Sophie. People will do anything for love."
Will looked at her as if the words had jolted him, then smiled, the same maddeningly sweet smile he had given her in the carriage. "Amazing, isn't it?"
Tessa made as if to answer, but they had reached the drawing room. It was bright inside; the witch light torches were high, and there was a fire in the grate. The curtains were drawn back, showing squares of leaden sky. Tessa took off her hat and gloves and was just laying them on a Moroccan table when she saw that Will, who had followed her in, was drawing closed the bolt on the door.
Tessa was about to inquire why Will had followed her into the drawing room and locked the door, when she saw him turn to face her. She opened her mouth in surprise and shut it again. Again in surprise she watched as he in two long strides, caught her in an embrace. Cautiously, Tessa whispered, "Will, what are you doing?" Tessa received no answer though, as Will walked her backward until they nearly collided with the wall. "Will," she said in surprise as he pinned her to the wall with his body. Suddenly, he kissed her, his mouth hot on hers. Surprised, Tessa kissed him back. He ran his hands through her wet hair, as she did the same to his. His lips were soft and electric against hers, his body hard against her. She knew they had to stop. This time they were not under the influence of warlock drugs.
"Will," she murmured "we need to stop." He slowly looked at her, his bright blue eyes looking at her as if he could see into her heart. He looked hurt as he whispered, "I have something to tell you, Tessa," he paused for a moment before continuing, "I love you Tessa, and I have loved you, since almost the moment I met you." His blue eyes gazed at her as he said it alight with the truth behind his words. "I love you, Tessa. I will never love anyone else like I do you." Shocked into silence, Tessa could only stare at him.
"You…..don't believe me?" he whispered, the hurt in his eyes was almost too hard for Tessa to bare.
"I…..I'm not sure if I can believe you, Will," she whispered,"after all the things you've said and done to me; How can I trust you?" Tessa began to shake as a tear rolled down her cheek. Will took his thumb and moved it away.
"Don't cry, Tessa. Don't you ever shed a tear over me," Will whispered softly into Tessa's ear. "I never meant to hurt you in any way, Tessa,"
Now Tessa was mad. "You never meant to hurt me? How do you explain what you said to me, when you treated me like rubbish?" She was fuming now. "You call that love?"
"No. I know I was horrible to you, but I can explain," Will said grabbing Tessa's hand in his. "I'm cursed, Tessa, or I thought I was."
