Okay, my second story is finally up! I'm sorry it took me so long to publish this. My parents won't leave me be long enough to type it out. The story has been written out for weeks. Anyway, on with the story!
"Hey, Izzy, it's Alec. I-"
"It's about time you called! Where are you? We've looked everywhere!"
Alec flinched. Isabelle was royally pissed. 'And she has every right to be," he thought wih a small grimace. He hadn't exactly been the responsible big brother he usually was. No, he was too busy being the caring boyfriend for that.
"Look, I'm really sorry I didn't call earlier, but Magnus was throwing a party and he accidentally grabbed someone else's drink. The drink had some kind of magical drug, a powerful hallucinogenic, that messes with his magic so the effects of it can't be removed until the drug has run its course. Well, at least, that's what one of Magnus's warlock friends told me before I kicked everyone out."
"Is he alright?" Alec could tell she was concerned about the warlock. Ever since he and Magnus had started openly dating, she had become very close to him to the point where she pactically considered him family.
"He'll be fine in the morning, but he's really loopy right now. I feel kinda bad about laughing, but- well, you'll see what I'm talking about in the morning," Alec said wih a dark laugh. "Maia showed up for a little while and I talked her into letting me borrow her camcorder for the night."
Isabelle laughed. "You do realize he's going to kill you for that, right?"
"Yes, but he deserves it after what he did a few weeks ago."
"Ah, yes, I remember that. Go for it. I'll send Jace over in the morning to wake you two up. Bye," Isabelle said, then hung up. Alec closed his cell, slipped it I to his pocket, and went back to the living room where he had left Magnus. The sparkly warlock was sitting upriht on the couch with his head craned back so that he could see the ceiling. His neck rolled in a circle following the perimeter, his eyes constantly trained upward. Alec peeked over to where he had the camera hidden, relieved that the red light was still on.
"Magnus, honey, what are you doing?"
"I'm watching the babies racing on the ceiling," he declared as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.
"I see. And who's winning?"
"Well, the one in the green diaper's winning for now, but the purple one's catching up, and he's cheating."
Alec snorted, then walked over and plopped down next to Magnus, who was, apparently, completely oblivious. After about fifteen minutes of this, with Magnus occasionally updating Alec on what was happening, Magnus stopped and looked mournfully at Alec.
"The one in purple won..." He sighed and rested his head on Alec's shoulder. Suddenly, he perked up. "I'm thirsty!"
"That glass of water is for you," Alec said, then pointed at the cup sitting on the coffee table.
"Oh, thank you!"
He reached for the glass, but his hand closed on thin air just a few inches from it. He glared, then snatched at it again, but only succeeded in moving farther away. The drugged man slid his arms across the table as if the cup was running away. Somehow, he managed to end up halfway in the floor before looking up at Alec with pleading eyes.
"Sweetie, would you please..."
Alec reached over and snatched the glass while Magnus reseated himself. He actually contemplated holding the drink for Magnus, but the warlock grabbed it before he could and downed the whole thing. He sat it down again, then laid down with his head in the Shadowhunter's lap. Alec blushed, but had to smile at the doped-up grin Magnus was giving him, even though the pupils that had grown much larger than normal creeped him out a little.
"You look so pretty tonight. Oh, and I love what you've done with your hair!"Alec looked confused. A quick glance at the mirrored surface of the table told him that his hair looked just like it always did."It looks great now that it's blue. Purple. Green. Yellow. Blue. Red."
Alec wasn't sure what to say to this. Was he arguing with himself? He pondered this until Magnus made a disgruntled noise and grabbed Alec's chin.
"Hold still! I can't tell when you keep wiggling around like that!"
For the first time that night, Alec obeyed Magnus's orders, even though he wasn't moving. If he moved much, with Magnus's strong grip, he might leave bruises. The bruises wouldn't actually bother him, but Magnus would have a fit of self-loathing if he knew he had harmed Alec in any way.
Magnus was apparently satisfied, for then he got up and grabbed the cup before stumbling off to the kitchen. As soon as he was out of sight, Alec jumped up and turned the camcorder off, snickering quietly to himself. He had just finished packing the camera and putting the memory chip in a hidden pocket when a thought hit him that almost stopped his heart. He had just let Magnus, drugged and hallucinating, go into he kitchen, with lots of sharp objects and things he could burn himself on, all alone with no way to heal himself if he was hurt. Alec raced to the kitchen, silently beating himself up for being so careless. When he swung open the kitchen door, he felt his heart turn into a little puddle in his chest. Magnus had somehow managed to climb up onto he counter , curl up, and fall asleep. Alec snuck over, careful not to make any noises that might disturb his sleeping boyfriend, and smoothed his spiky hair away from his face. Jace may be the one with angel blood, but, to Alec, Magnus looked more beautiful than even Raziel himself, even with his clothing wrinkled and his makeup planted a soft kiss on Magnus's forehead before scooping him up.
"Thank he Angel you're so light," Alec muttered inder his breath. He carried Magnus into his bedroom- 'our' bedroom, Alec corrected himself with a smile. He laid the warlock down and slowly undressed him, so that he was wearing nothing but underwear since he was afraid moving him put something else on might wake him up. Alec blushed as he looked at the thin chest that moved in such a small, smooth pattern. He had seen Magnus in less (and vice versa), but he couldn't help but blush every time. Maybe it was something about that smooth, tanned skin, perhaps, or those small but oh-so -strong muscles...
Alec shook himself. There was no way he was going to let himself get turned on while Magnus was sleeping. Alec stripped down until he was wearing just as much (or as little, depending on how you look at it) as Magnus was, then curled himself around the unconscious man and pulled he blankets over both of them. He was asleep before he knew it, thinking about nothing but the sweet warlock cradled in his arms that he loved so dearly.
That was the first thought that came to Magnus's mind when he woke up. His whole body ached, a side effect of the drugs. Another side effect wa s complete loss of any memory involving what happened while the drugs were in effect.
'What happened last night? I must have gotten totally wasted.' He groaned and tooled onto his stomach, burying his face in the pillow. A cool hand was placed on his back. Warm breath blew gently against his ear.
Magnus smiled. "You're here, aren't you?" he turned his head and placed a passionate kiss on the surprised Shadowhunter's lips. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't his Shadowhunter that he saw when he opened his eyes.
He jerked away, rubbing at his lips and cursing while Jace tried not to keel over with laughter. Magnus immediately regretted the sudden movement when it sent a lightning bolt of pain through his skull. He moaned and held his head tightly. Jace, however, was still laughing so hard he had to sit down on the floor. I'm sure you can imagine Alec's surprise when he walks back into the bedroom with water and an asprin to find a red-faced Jace on the floor and Magnus clutching his head and looking like he was ready to fall over dead after killing Jace.
"What did you do this time?" Jace breathlessly explained what had happened when Alec left while Alec himself gave Magnus the pill and drink. After all this, Alec gave Jace a well-deserved chewing-out, then sat down next to Magnus and wrapped his arms around the warlock's bare shoulders.
"Really, Jace, could you at least try to be nicer? Especially after what happened last night..."
"Speaking of last night, what happpened?"
Both Shadowhunters turned to look at Magnus.
"You mean, you don't remember?" Magnus shook his head. "Well, do you remember what you did a few weeks ago? While I was asleep? You covered me I'm glitter while I was asleep? Well, this is revenge for that," Alec said, and Magnus felt a chill go up his spine from the look Alec was giving him.
"Okay, but what does that have to do with last night?"
"Oh, you'll see. First, though, you have to do something for me. How do you set up a YouTube account?"
Magnus sat in front of the computer with his head in his hands."One million views," he murmered to no one in particular. "One million views, and he posted it yesterday."
Note to self: do NOT piss off Shadowhunters.
And there we have it. The whole "babies racing on the ceiling" thing actually happened to someone I know, but she had codeine instead. Wow, I think I see a bit of fluff in there. I'm not quite sure where it came from... What do you think? I would love to hear about anything I may have done wrong in the story or any ideas yu would want me to do. The little green button misses your mouse so very much. So please, do it for the button. Thank you so much to everyone who reviewed my last story.
