CHAPTER 57

I wanna start by saying sorry for not updating. It's hard to end a story. This story is finally coming to an end but ill talk about that and a few other things after the chapter. K story time!

Clary's heart was pounding out of her chest. Did Jace hear all of that? She wasn't listening to a word that was being said around her until Jace stood a few feet away.

"How long where you standing there?" Clary asked.

Jace shrugged. "Long enough" he said.

"I thought everybody went to look for Jon" she said.

"They did, but I stayed here in case he came back which he did" Jace said.

Clary couldn't tell if Jace was angry or not. He sounded like it, but if he was then he was being really calm about it. Maybe he didn't hear us, she thought. Her hopes were crushed when Jace looked at Jon.

"You should go clean that hand Jon. You do know that those windows are supposed to be there right? They don't break either so you're lucky you didn't break your hand" he said.

Jon looked at Clary and she nodded. She sat on the bed as Jon left the room. Jace closed the door and took a seat next to Clary. They sat in silence for a few minutes and Clary couldn't take it anymore.

"Why aren't you saying anything?" she asked.

Jace shrugged, but didn't make a sound.

Clary sighed. "I'm sorry Jace. I won't do it again, but please don't be mad at me" she said. Tears were welling in her eyes and she blinked furiously trying to force them away.

Jace finally made eye contact with Clary. "You think I'm mad at you for going to that prison?" he asked. Clary bowed her head. She nodded and gave up trying to stop her tears. Jace reached out and wiped them away. He lifted her chin up so that they were looking at each other.

"Clary, I'm not mad" he said. He opened his mouth to keep talking, but the door opened. Jon walked in.

"Sorry to interrupt, but I thought you should know what's going on. Since everybody is safe we are all kind of doing our own things. Simon and Izzy went out and so did Alec and Magnus. Mom and Luke are going to take me to the doctor to make sure my hand is okay. I told them that I got it caught in the car door so stick to that story. Do you two have plans?" he asked.

They both shook their heads. "Do you want us to come to the doctor?" Clary asked.

Jon shook his head. "I'm fine, but mom insists. You guys should do something fun together. Just be careful" he said.

Clary and Jace nodded as Jon left the room. "Any ideas?" Jace asked. Clary shook her head. It was late and they couldn't think of much to do.

"I want to know what you were saying. You're not mad?" she asked.

"Of course not. I was scared to death Clary. I thought I lost you and I was driving around thinking about what I would do and I just couldn't-" he stopped talking. Clary could hear him holding back tears.

"I can't ever lose you Clary" he said.

Clary hugged him. "You won't ever have to" she said.

Jace smiled and leaned forward. He pressed his lips to hers and wrapped his arms around her back, pulling her closer. Clary's hands found their way to Jace's hair and she gently tugged at the loose strands. Slowly, they fell back onto the bed. Their breaths came faster as they deepened the kiss.

Clary's hands traveled up Jace's shirt. She playfully tugged the hem. Jace pulled her hands up telling her that it was okay and Clary smiled as she pulled the shirt over his head. Her eyes were glued to Jace's body. He really was perfect. She hesitantly dragged her fingers across his abs as they kissed.

Jace's hands stayed on the small of her back holding her against him. Clary was felling impatient as she moved his hands to the hem of her shirt. His eyes widened, but he didn't reject when Clary continued moving his hands up her stomach taking her shirt with them until it was on the ground with Jace's. Clary noticed Jace staring at her chest and she blushed.

Trying desperately not to look awkward, Clary leaned forward and continued their kiss. Jace's hands were still resting on her back. "Move your hands Jace" she mumbled against his lips. Jace was hesitant, but did as he was told. His hand roamed her skin and stropped to trace the top of her pants. Clary knew he wouldn't move without permission so she placed his hands on the button and helped him pop it open.

Jace broke away from their kiss. "Are you sure?" he asked. Clary nodded and kissed him again. Jace tugged at her jeans until they joined the shirts on the ground. Clary figured that Jace would start something, but he only moved when she told him to. Feeling bold, Clary unbuckled Jace's jeans and he didn't object when she threw them on the pile of clothes on the floor. Clary moved closer to kiss him again.

"Wait" Jace said. "I don't think we should do this" he said.

Clary felt extremely embarrassed as she struggled against her tears. "Oh" was all could say.

Jace's eyes grew wide. "Oh God I didn't mean it like that! I meant that I won't be able to stop if we go much further and I don't want to push you Clary" he said.

Clary sighed in relief. "You're not forcing me. I want you Jace" she said.

Jace shook his head. "Clary you were just ra-"

"I know what happened Jace!" she screamed. Jace was silent. "I'm sorry I didn't mean to yell at you. I just really want to forget about it" she said.

Jace sat up a little. "Then why did you go to that prison?" he asked. Clary sighed.

"I knew that I wanted you. Let's face it, I would have given myself to you the first day I met you. Sebastian stopped being important to me even though I never would have admitted that. It was always you Jace and it always will be. I was thinking about you last night and I knew that I had to go. I would never have been able to be with you completely if I never knew what caused all that betrayal and heartbreak in the past. I kind of just needed to move on and I did. I'm yours Jace. Anything and everything I have is yours" she said.

Clary waited anxiously for Jace to respond. "So what I'm hearing is that you want me? Even before I said a word to you? Man, I am so much better looking than I thought" he said.

They both laughed. "Jace?" Clary said.

"Yes?" he asked.

"Kiss me please" she said.

Jace smirked. "As you wish" he said. They returned to their previous position and Clary noticed that Jace still refused to make moves by himself. "If I have to take my own bra off I might kill you Jace Lightwood" she said in between kisses. Jace's mouth froze on hers and Clary pulled away.

"I'm serious Jace. I want this. Stop worrying and just pretend that you really want it too" she said.

Jace laughed. "You think I don't want you?" he asked.

Clary shrugged and hid her face. "Clary I want you so bad it hurts" he said.

Clary looked him in the eyes. "Prove it" she said. Jace smiled as he connected their lips. His hands reached around Clary's back and unhooked her bra. Clary broke away so he could slide the straps off her shoulders. Jace threw it with their other clothes and stared at Clary.

"You can touch me Jace. It's okay" she said shyly. Jace gulped and reached out to touch her. His hand started at her hips, but made their way up to her chest. His touch was so gentle. It was unlike any felling Clary had ever known.

Clary's mind could not keep up as her underwear and Jace's boxers joined the clothes pile. Jace's eyes were glued to her body. She noticed that his gaze wasn't predatory, but amazed.

"You're so beautiful" he said. Clary blushed.

"Are you sure about this Clary?" Jace asked her.

She nodded. "I'm sure" she said. Jace smiled and he got up from the bed and threw on his jeans. "I'll be right back" he said. He returned a minute later holding a small wrapper.

"It's a good thing that I know where Jon keeps his condoms" he said.

"Ew Jace! That's my brother!" she yelled.

Jace shrugged. "Are you-"

"I'm positive Jace" she said.

Jace smiled as he rolled the condom on and joined her on the bed. Soon, they were both laying under the sheets out of breath. Clary turned her head to see that Jace was propped up on his elbow looking at her.

"Well that was fun" she said.

Jace laughed. "Yea it was. We were just following Jon's orders" he winked at her.

Clary giggled. "I don't think that that would've qualified on Jon's list" she said.

Jace shrugged. "Well it's on my list" he said.

Clary agreed and snuggled into Jace's chest. She lazily traced circles on his muscles. "I love you Jace" she said.

"I love you too Clary" he said.

Clary blushed. "I mean it. I really love you. I was on such a bad place and I didn't know if I was going to make it, but you saved me. You're like some angel that fell from Heaven to come save me and I love you so much. I think that's why I drew you with angel wings a while ago. You're my fallen angel Jace"

AWWW corny ending I know sorry. I had to make the title important! Anyways this story is sadly over. I really appreciate all of the favorites, and follows, and reviews and all that stuff. They mean a lot more than you know. I'm sure some of you understand as you write you own stories.

I have had a few people ask if I am going to write another story. I would love to write more. I need a short break first, but let me know if you have any suggestions and I'll see if I can make a story out of it!

I have a recommendation for you! My friend introduced me to a story on wattpad. It's not about mortal instruments. It included some characters like Tessa and Jace, but it is an AU fanfic and it also involved some members of one direction. It all happens in the normal world mainly at a college. I thought I would hate it, but try not to judge it because it is the most amazing fanfic I have ever read. It's really long like there are three separate books and they are all being published and made into movies. It's that good! Anyways, if you are looking for a good read I highly suggest it. Give it a chance! It's on wattpad and it's called After. Theb author is imaginator1D.

Thanks again for reading my story. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
