Chapter 1

A/N: Hey! I'm back! I had an idea for a Malec fic, so here it is! And right after I finished Soul Mate too, lol. So this takes place about two years after CoHF.

I don't know if there are any other fanfics out there like this, and if there are, then sorry if you feel like I'm copying it, just let me know.

If I don't get too many good responses, then I might just drop it, but we'll see. Anyways, here goes :).

Magnus pov

"C'mon Magnus, we have to go! You yourself said that -"

"You can't rush perfection, darling!" I sang, grinning at Alec's exasperated sigh. I added the last touches of glitter to my spiked hair before stepping back to admire my reflection. It was perfect, as always. Putting on a smirk, I stepped out of the bathroom.

Alec was waiting in the living room, sprawled on the couch. He was dressed in all black, as always, but he was wearing skinny jeans and a tight shirt.

He was staring off into space, unaware of my presence. I snuck up behind him wrapped my arms around him. He jumped.

"Magnus!" Alec squeaked. I chuckled and kissed the top of his head.

"Ready to go?" I asked.

He nodded, smiling up at me. "Care to tell me where we're going?"

"Nope. That would take the surprise out of 'surprise'."

"Well, let's get on with it then," he grumbled, sitting up and brushing off his jeans.

I turned to the wall and started creating a portal.

I then took his hand before stepping into the portal, our bags not far behind.

We landed smoothly in a hotel room. A small kitchen sat in the corner, and the far wall was made entirely out of glass. An amazing view of the ocean greeted us through it. Alec, regaining his balance, was slowly moving closer to the glass wall, a look of pure astonishment on his face.

"It's - it's beautiful!" He looked up at me, mouth open. His blue eyes shone. I smiled. "Where are we?"

"Hawaii. Maui, to be exact."

"Wow. This is just... wow." Alec was moving a little closer to the glass, step by step. Finally, he reached it, and stopped right in front of it. His hand hovered in front of it, as if he wasn't sure whether to touch it or not.

"It's so clear, like it's almost not there," he whispered. He cautiously touched it with the tips of his fingers, and finding out that there was glass there, he put his whole palm on it.

I couldn't help but chuckle. "You're adorable," I said, sliding up to him and putting my arms around his waist. He blushed a little and turned around to kiss me, tearing his eyes away from the view and burying his hand in my stiff hair.

"So what's the plan for today?" Alec asked, pulling away.

"Whatever you want. We could stay here, or go to the beach, or hang out in town." I frowned. "Although there's not much to do in town."

"The beach it is, then," Alec announced. "I'm gonna go change." He started towards the bedroom, where the bags had landed after we portaled here. I quickly followed him.

We made it to the beach in record time. It was fairly empty, with a few people scattered here and there. Palm trees swung in the light breeze. The sun was high and bright in the sky, and the blue waves gently lapped at the shore.

Alec took off his shirt, exposing his pale, toned chest. I couldn't help but stare as he picked up a tube of sunscreen and started rubbing it onto himself.

He glanced at me and smirked, catching my stare. "See something you like?" he asked playfully.

"Of course, darling," I answered smoothly. "Don't you have a rune or something for protection against sun?"

Alec shrugged. "I doubt it," he sighed. "Maybe Clary could create one for me," he added thoughtfully. "That would be nice."

Suddenly, he tossed the sunscreen to me. I caught it before it hit my face, and looked up at him, confused.

"Can you put it on my back, please?" he asked, moving closer.

I nodded and squirted some on my hand. I rubbed it into his back, causing him to shiver. Smirking, I moved my hands faster, massaging him. Then I started placing light butterfly kisses down his back, along his spine.

"Magnus!" he moaned, turning around. "There are little kids here!" Bright red splotches colored his cheekbones. I laughed.

"Do you need some?" he asked, holding up the sunscreen.

I shook my head, and wiggled my fingers. Blue sparks jumped off of them. He mumbled something incoherently.

"What was that, love?" I asked.

"Nothing. Let's go into the water." Alec stood up and held his hand out. Sighing, I let him help me up.

"I don't like the water," I muttered. "It'll ruin my makeup."

"We're at the beach, Magnus. What else is there to do?" Alec was already halfway to the ocean.

"Not mess up my hair."

"Come on," he moaned.

"The things I do for you, darling," I sighed, shaking my head.

By the time I reached the water, Alec was already knee deep. "It's warm-ish!" he called. I stood at the edge, not wanting to go in.

Alec was already on his way back to me. When he was close, he kicked out suddenly, splashing my legs and my rainbow swim shorts. I looked down in astonishment, and back up at him.

He took one look at my face and sprinted off.

"You are going to pay!" I yelled, racing after him. I barely felt the water lap around my knees, and soon, my waist. Alec was far ahead, his Shadowhunter speed giving him the advantage. Finally, he stopped to catch his breath, and I reached him, splashing water all over his torso and face. Laughing, he raised his hands in surrender, and I stopped.

"See, the water isn't that bad," he said, swallowing his giggles. I looked down. The water was at my chest.

Unable to resist, I started laughing too, and I leaned forward to kiss Alec. He smiled into the kiss, and I drew myself closer, exploring his mouth with my tongue. He sighed and tugged at my wet hair.

Suddenly, he pulled away, looking embarrassed, cheeks red. He glanced around. No one had noticed us kissing.

"Sorry," he sighed, leaning into my chest. "I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable."

I smiled and pressed a soft kiss on his head. "I know."

We hung around the beach all day.

"You've never built a sandcastle?" I had asked in astonishment when he asked what I was doing in the sand.

"No. We never really had time to go to the beach when I was young. My parents weren't home often, and I preferred reading books," he replied, watching me carefully as I patted wet sand into a lump.

"And I'm guessing you didn't exactly read Harry Potter, or something normal," I said sarcastically. But he missed it, of course.

"No, more like weaponry and demonology and stuff." He shrugged. "And whatever I could find in the library."

"Shadowhunters," I muttered. "Now help me build this castle."

Alec had gotten down on his knees, wrinkling his nose in distaste as the sand clung to his wet skin. But he started to help me pile up sand.

The sand wouldn't stay; the castle kept collapsing. Finally, I had enough, and I allowed some blue sparks to jump from my fingertips. The sand jumped to life, assembling itself into an amazing sand castle. I stepped back to admire my handiwork. Alec gave me a look.

"Really, Magnus? You're making the little kids jealous," he said. I looked behind me. There stood two kids, twin girls, and they were staring at my castle in awe. They had tangled, curly hair as black as ink, and freckled, pale faces. Both had identical green eyes,

I turned to Alec and laughed. "Watch."

I walked up to the girls. "Do you want me to teach you?" I asked gently. They had glanced back at their parents nervously, but the adults hadn't noticed a thing. Slowly, one nodded.

"Come here," I had said, patting the damp sand next to me. I sat down, and they copied my movements.

"What are your names?" I asked.

"Jasmine," one said quietly. I looked expectantly at the other.

"Emily," she whispered.

"Those are pretty names." I smiled. "I'm Magnus."

"That's a weird name," Jasmine exclaimed.

Emily elbowed her. "That's rude," she whispered.

I chuckled. "It's fine. I'm told that a lot."

Jasmine looked at me with wide eyes.

"How old are you guys?" I wondered aloud, started to collect the damp sand in a pile in front of me. The twins followed suit.

"Five," said Emily. "But we're gonna be six soon!" She smiled at me.

"How old are you?" Jasmine asked, her eyes curious.

"Jasmine, that's rude too!" Emily complained.

"But he asked us first!" she whined.

I laughed again. They were too adorable. "I'm 800 years old," I said, smirking slightly. Both the twins stopped their arguing and stared at me with identical awed expressions on their faces.

"Really?" Emily asked, slightly astonished. "You don't look that old. I thought really old people have wrinkles? And lots if gray hair."

"Nah, I'm joking, I'm not 800. And yes, old people do have wrinkles. Although I've seen some with white hair." I winked.

Jasmine giggled. It was bubbly and cute, the kind of laugh you would expect from a five-year-old girl.

"Now c'mon," I said. "Don't you want to learn how to build a sand castle?"

I returned back to Alec half an hour later. I had glanced at him from time to time while teaching the girls sand castle tricks. Every time, he had a strange expression on his face, and something glinted in his eyes.

His expression cleared when I reached him, but the glint in his eyes were still there.

"What?" I asked.

He shook his head. "Nothing." I didn't look away. Finally, he squirmed under my gaze. "Fine. I just noticed... you're really good with kids." He looked up at me, squinting in the sun. "It gave me this strange feeling... I want this in life." He gestured to Jasmine and Emily. They were happily building another sand castle next to the first. I was proud to see that it was staying up.

Alec continued. "I want kids, Magnus." My stomach flipped. I opened my mouth to say something, but he cut me off. "And I know that's saying a lot because we aren't even married or anything, and usually I'm the one afraid of the future, and I'm not saying that we'll get kids now or anything, it's just... this feeling passed over me, seeing you with them, and I -"

"Alec," I interrupted. "You're rambling." He swallowed, and nodded. "I totally get it. But you're right, we aren't even married, and I don't know how kids will work, with our situation."

Alec looked a little defeated. I sighed. "Listen. We'll cross that bridge when it comes. Right now, we're gonna enjoy this nice Hawaiian beach."

He nodded and lifted his head, smiling slightly. Then he kissed me lightly and raced towards the ocean screaming "Catch me if you can!"

Of course I couldn't; his Shadowhunter training made him as quick as lightning, even on the smooth white sand of the beach.

Soon, the sun started to set, sinking beneath the calm waves. The sky was full of brilliant reds and golds and blues. The light reflected off the dark blue ocean. Alec and I stood hand in hand, watching the water swallow up the glowing orb. It was picture-perfect, and romantic. Finally, as the last rays disappeared over the horizon, I turned Alec's head, kissing him full on the mouth. He groaned and pressed closer, opening my mouth with his. I slipped one arm around his waist as he traced my lips and teeth.

We broke apart only when air became necessary. "Thank you," Alec whispered, catching his breath. "for another perfect day."

I could only nod in response.

A/N: Hey! So what did you think? Cute and fluffy? I do know where this story is going (kind of), I have a vague idea of how it's gonna end.

And I don't know why, I absolutely loved writing Jasmine and Emily. I should do more kid fanfics. Hmmm...

So I'll try to update as often as possible, but I just started high school, and things may get a little busy. But don't leave me! I won't abandon my stories, I promise.

I might change the title in the future, but I'll let you know before I do, of course.

Anyways, review please! I'll update ASAP, and reviews = (hopefully) faster updates.
