So I have felt really bad for a while leading so many of you on. Although, I think it is out of character for Clary to choose Sebastian I felt that I should at least give my Sebastian x Clary fans out there an ending they would be proud of. If this had been the ending I had chosen I would have added some more bonding moments in previous chapters to help support that idea that Clary was actually falling in love with Sebastian. However, you are already aware of what ending I choose. Though this one was so much more fun to write!
I hope you enjoy this alternate ending. I will not be writing anymore for this story. I have a few other projects in the works that are consuming my brain. Which should be focusing on writing report cards...ugh! So I hope you enjoy! Leave a review and let me know what you thought! I like reading reviews :)
Clary twisted Heosphoros in her hands as she looked out the window. Isabelle had left to head down to the wedding. She was all alone which is what she wanted. She needed some time to think; to process everything that was about to happen. She touched the Morgenstern ring around her finger as she gazed out of the window. A lot had happened in the last month. Sebastian had created trees, a lake, and beautiful flowers across the hillside. There was now a beautiful blue sky with clouds and a light breeze. Edom seemed to be coming to life. He created it to please her. She made him happy and the truth was that deep down she knew, he made her happy as well.
There were only two options; kill Johnathan or marry him. Running wasn't even an option. He wouldn't let her go; not ever. There was no where she could hide in this world or any other where he would not find her. A part of her didn't want to run away and that unsettled her. She remembered the look on his face when he handed her Heosphoros. Not knowing that he was giving her the only weapon that could kill him. Her heart felt like it was about to beat out of her chest.
I should hate him, I should want to destroy him! Why am I hesitating?
She remembered his face kissing her awake this morning. Her brother's happy face was prominent in her mind. She smiled and that was when the realization hit her. She was in love with her brother. Despite everything he had done to her, Jace, and the world. She was romantically in love with him. When the time came she knew that she wouldn't be able to do it. She couldn't kill him anymore than she could kill Jace…..
"Jace," she cried. She loved him too. What was she going to do?
The truth was she didn't know what to do, so she locked the door and refused to come out. After much hassle she finally heard the endarkened leave. She finally released the tears that she had been holding back.
Some time had passed before there was a knock on the door.
"Clarisssa?" Sebastian's voice inquired behind the door. "What is wrong?"
He paused and waited for an answer. When none came he knocked again.
"Clarissa, Let me in!" He spoke angrily.
Clary walked across the room and opened the door.
Her brother stood there in the doorway. Surprise covering his features. He obviously hadn't expected her succumb to his demands so quickly. He didn't have a minuet to recuperate before he saw his brides downcast face. Clary looked at him as tears fell down her cheeks. She couldn't help herself. She rushed to him and hid her face in his chest.
"Clarissa," he whispered wrapping his arms around her. "What's wrong?"
"I.." she looked up at him.
"I love you," she whispered letting another tear fall down her face.
He looked at her. Many emotions flashed through his eyes before they returned to their normal darkness. This time full of vulnerability. He smiled and caressed her face.
"If you love me so much then why are you hiding in here instead of coming out to marry me?" he chuckled affectionately.
"I…" she stuttered. Telling him that she was planning on putting a blade through his heart at the alter didn't seem like the right thing to say at the moment.
"I don't want to hurt Jace anymore." She whispered. It wasn't completely a lie. She was tired of hurting Jace.
He pressed her chin up and kissed her passionately. She felt her heart soar into her chest. How could someone she hated so much a month ago make her feel this way? He broke off the kiss and looked down at her.
"If I make you happy than Jace will grow to understand." He smiled.
"And if he doesn't than I have many methods to make him understand."
Clary knew he meant torture, making him drink from the cup or both.
"I love Jace," she whispered. Sebastian's body went rigid.
"but I love you too Johnathan and…..I choose to be with you."
She learned up, closed her eyes, and kissed him. He returned the kiss back cautiously. He was dumbfounded. Was this some sort of trick?
"You choose me?" he asked confused.
"Yes" She whispered.
Clary looked up and gazed into his eyes. She could see the uncertainty. She took his steel out of his belt. He didn't flinch; just continued to gaze into her eyes.
"Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death." She spoke placing an asking hand on top of his shirt; over his heart. He stared at her as if not believing what was happening. After a few seconds he undid the top buttons of his shirt.
"Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death." He repeated back to her.
She placed the ruin for love onto his chest. He then placed that same ruin on top of her heart. After marking their arms Sebastian leaned down and kissed his wife.
The kiss deepened as she felt the rune on her heart burn. He caressed her body and suddenly she couldn't get close enough to him. Every touch made her crave him even more. She seemed to be having the same effect on him.
She hoped Jace, her friends, and family would understand. She would find a way to get them back to their own world so they could move on. Her place was here with Johnathan. She could lie and say that he forced her or that she was doing this to save the world. However, deep down inside she knew the truth. She did have a dark heart and it now belonged to Johnathan. There was no going back now.
She heard a rip as her husband tore her wedding dress from her skin.
