Happy Reading! :D

Previously…

WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED? Clary's mind was screaming at her.

"WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED" Jonathan's voiced roared.

Clary was glad that Jon said it for her. She was to busy running away with tears in her eyes.

Chapter 6 – Bomb Drop

Jace didn't know what to say or do. He just turned around and went to look for Clary.

But then he stopped in his tracks.

He turned back around and slammed his fist into Sebastian's jaw.

"You just have to be a dumbass don't cha Sebby? Well man, you have another thing coming at ya bro." Jace sneered and headed back in the direction Clary ran.

Sebastian was smirking. Hell. He waited forever to kiss Clary and now he pissed off his dipshit cousin. It was like killing two birds with one stone. He just didn't understand why Clary stormed away. Was she mad at him? Surprised? Upset? Ha…

"Well hell Seb, what the fuck was that?" Izzy shouted, bring Sebastian mind into reality.

Sebastian growled in frustration. He barked, "Izzy, hush… You don't know what's going on and it's none of your business. I have loved Clary since I met her and now you guys move here and Jace thinks he can just toy with her and come in here and steal her away from me and! And! And! And I fucking hate that dick!"

"Seb. Shut the hell up for number one. Number two, don't talk to my sister like that again or I'll snap your neck, and three, don't talk about our brother like that. He may be adopted, but Jace is Jace. And you have no right to claim that poor girl to be yours when she clearly isn't. Play fair with Jace or this will end up messy for all of us." Alec said with a stern voice. How the hell are we in such a mess and we haven't even been here for less than 24 hours…. Alec thought as he mentally rolled his eyes.

Izzy and Alec left the living room to find Clary and Jace. With this stuff going on, they still had to go to dinner with their parents.

(This is a none-existent line that doesn't exist but it's here anyways… O.o)

Clary roamed the open hallways. She didn't care if she didn't know where she was going, and it didn't matter. All she wanted to do was get away from everyone. Why did Sebastian kiss her? Did Jace want to kiss her? Clary was so lost in her thoughts, she didn't notice a blond angel sneak up on her.

"Do you know where you're going?" Jace asked quietly, testing the waters to see how Clary would react to him after what had just happened.

"Nope. And I don't care. I don't see why you care either! Jace… I just met you and I'm so confused about you…" Clary said with her voice strained with frustration.

"I wanna show you something…" Jace said as he grabbed Clary's wrist and led her down the hallway.

"Jace, what are…."

"Clary, just please follow me. Please." Jace begged. Clary didn't reply but she remained silent as Jace led her to their wanted destination. As they moved through the hallways, they made their way to a door on the third floor of the house. When Jace opened the door, Clary was greeted with a blast of fresh air and the soft scent of flowers. Clary's senses were on high alert, but then she realized that she was in a green house.

"Right when we started moving into the house, I wanted to explore and I found this place. I have only been up here a few times, but I love it here, and I guessed you would too." Jace chuckled nervously hoping Clary liked it as much as he did.

"I… Oh god Jace, this place is magical…" Clary whispered. She felt as if she was in a whole different whole. A world where nothing but peace and beauty existed. Her mind was zooming by like the speed of like but she needed to know something.

"Jace, what are we? I mean, I barely know you and you don't know me but it feels like we are creating this maze that doesn't seem that we can get out of." Clary asked, trying to make sense of her thoughts and feelings.

"Clary, I know we don't know each other at all, but don't tell me you don't feel a connection. Don't tell me that you look at me like every other guy you've seen. I want to get to know you better Clary, but I don't just want to be your friend either…" Jace felt like his shields were slipping. How does a little red-head that he's know for about 5 hours get stuck in his head like wallpaper that won't come off? Jace felt like he could be himself around her, and he wanted her to know now. Not a second later.

"Jace… I want to get to know you as well. But I own it to Sebastian to find out his feelings first. I just need to know Jace. I'm sorry." Clary tried to talk with as much confidence as possible, but it hurt. It hurt to see sadness in Jace's eyes, and it hurt even more when they glossed over.

"Do what you want Clary. But know this, I won't wait for you." Jace's tone was ice-cold, and Clary took this as a sign to leave. As she walked out the door, she felt a small but warm tear fall on down her cheek.

Jace was broken. He wanted to burn the world down. He had never been denied before and Clary being his first, hurt like hell. He ripped a rose from a rose-bush next to him, and threw it as hard as he possible could and as far as he possible could. Jace couldn't feel anything now but empty. But he knew one thing. He would make Clary regret her decision, even if it was the last thing he did.

(This is a none-existent line that doesn't exist but it's here anyways… O.o)

Clary found the others soon enough and so did Jace. They all went to lunch with the lightwood house hold. Lunch was extremely awkward.

Maryse and Robert were stern people but nice enough to feel comfortable around.

Max was a cute little bundle of joy, wearing his over sized glasses and his head stuck in a manga book.

Jace and Clary didn't make eye contact at all, avoiding each other at all costs. Clary sat in between Izzy and Sebastian, with Sebastian's hand entwined with hers.

Sebastian was grinning like he won the lottery. He knew was soon as Clary found him before they headed out to lunch, that he won over Jace when she came up to him and kissed him on the cheek.

Jonathan sat next to Izzy, hoping for them to become better acquainted.

And Jace? Well Jace was sitting next to Max waiting for hell to break lose. He turned his A game on. Everyone thought he was an ass before? Well they had something coming for them…

How was this chappy folks? I know this is a lot of stuff to take in but I wanna get the ball rolling for a better plot. I am SO SORRY for the long wait. I hope you guys forgive me :/ Please tell me what you guys think! I read every one of your reviews and I try my best to reply to them.

I also take the comments you guys write and put them to use. For example, I know you guys want a story that's different for all the other fanfics out there, no Seb cheating on Clary right? Note taken!

Can't wait till the next time!

Love you guys,

J
