Midnight Sun.

I awoke to the god awful sound of my brother Alec singing completely out of tune to the song 'so what' by Pink. To be fair it's not his fault he's completely tone deaf. But it was seven in the morning for god sakes. Dragging myself out of bed I drifted to the wardrobe and scanned around it for my favourite shirt.

Ten minutes later I was washed and dressed. Alec was still singing. I walked down the stairs to tell him to shut the hell up but Isabelle my sister beat me to it. She began screaming like a banshee at Alec who just stood there to dumbstruck to do anything. I sometimes wonder if Isabelle is actually part banshee but I wouldn't dare ask her. I'm not that stupid.

"Jace WAYLAND!" Isabelle's attention turned to me "What time do you call this?"

"Seven in the morning" I replied "Isabelle darling you shouldn't shriek like that you might lose your beautiful voice." I slid past her into the kitchen.

"Good-morning Jace." Said Clary. Clary had been staying with us since Luke kicked her out. I didn't approve of course but it was nice to have a good cook around. And she helped us with our course work at college.

"Morning Clary, how long have you been up?" she looked tiered like she had a lack of sleep.

"Dunno. I have been up since the crack of dawn trying to get this essay done!" she let a yawn out before continuing to type on her laptop.

"Hey Jace," Alec grinned at me and handed me a plate of toast.

"Thanks Alec." I took the plate gratefully from him.

After breakfast I headed out to the shop to buy some new college stuff. I took 100 dollars with me I prayed I wouldn't 'bump' into Aline and Becky again it wasn't a pretty sight when Clary seen Aline last week. Oh god that was awful. Aline was bragging about going out with Dylan Mckeith the senior who was like almost as popular as me and Clary lost it cause Aline was trying to flirt with me in front of her. Well it's not my fault I'm hot and every girl sooner or later likes me.

Anyway I was at the checkout and I heard Becky's voice "Hiyaaaaaa Hotttttie" I ignored her and continued placing my items on the checkout then Aline chirped in.

"Jace? Where's your little pet?" Aline wasn't one to just let a conversation drop. Oh no she had to have every little detail.

"Aline go away before I seriously slap you. And Clary is not my little pet." I began to move faster putting my things on the checkout.

Aline continued to talk "Well I was wondering... Are you free on Sunday night?" She flashed her eyebrows at me.

"No! I'm going to a wedding. It's Isabelle's and Simon's." The girl at the checkout asked me to pay $54 pounds, so I threw $100 at her and yelled "KEEP THE CHANGE!"

I grabbed the shopping and darted out the shop. As soon as I was about half a mile away I slowed down into a steady walk to the Institute.

When I finally got to the Institute I banged on the door Clary opened it "Wow what happened this time was it Aline trouble again?" I nodded "Well what did she say this time?" I explained what had happened at the shop and Clary began the get steadily angrier after I finished she bolted out the door in the direction of the shop.

I laughed and walked to my room. I had been up half the night and I was shattered. I fell on the bed and sighed I had a text of Simon.

TEN YEARS LATER

Well I'm a dad now. So is Simon. Clary wants us to get MARRIED! But I keep saying no what the point of it? Last night we had the biggest argument ever. Clary went to Luke's. I was screaming "I'LL BUY YOU THE BIGGEST AND FLASHIST RING FROM IDRIS IF U REALLY WANT!"

She said softly "Well I don't want a flashy ring I just want to know you love me."

Then I really began to scream "WHAT? SO THE 6 YEARS WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER HAVE MEANT NOTHING TO YOU? EVERYTHING I'VE DONE MEANS NOTHING? WELL THANKS CLARY!" her eyes began to water

She grabbed a bag and pulled items of clothing into it. "I'll be here to collect Alfie in the morning."

"Where are you going?" I asked in a softer voice

"Luke's but that doesn't need to bother you," she said in a sickly sweet voice.

"No! You can stay here!" I said in a attempt to make her stay

Her eyes narrowed "So now you're saying I have you permission to stay here well I should be HONURED SEEMING I ALSO OWN THE DAMN THING!" then she grabbed her bag and stormed out.

This morning she came back.
