Chapter 2 Growing and remembering I felt myself older as me and Alec quickly left. We where going to see an old friend/cousin that lived in the institute of Tulsa, we would go to...Where is that freakin'list?! Oh...there. Tulsa, Oklahoma: To visit old friends and family Lima, Ohio : To get a special rune book for Clary Paradise, Ohio : To meet some old boyfriend of Izzy( Oh there is an invasion of them! So much exes!)that could give us a ride Port Angeles, Washington : To visit that gypsy...Sadly Montepulciano,Italy : To check the institute Rome, Italy : Maybe some shopping some girl stufs for Clary and the insitutes+ sight seeings Gouda, The Netherlands : To get those faerie earrings that Iz has asked for Rio De Janeiro, Brasil: To get on the way back and visit the institute, please don't forget to go to some parties and visit the jesus statue. Heard it's lovely Chihuahua, Mexico: To buy that dress...Hate Izzy's shopping list!Can't she go herself?! Home,Sadly: Because we can't run away forever...Again sadly I giggled a little when i saw that he had thought about me and laughed hysterically about the Isabelle comments.I am SO lucky she isn't my sister. (Sorry Iz) " What are you laughing about?" He asked very curiously." Didn't they told you that curiousity killed the cat." He laughed. " Has anybody ever told you that you can't take those sayings TO serious?" I felt the flood coming up again. " Yeah. Jace once told me." " Ow Clary i'm sorry!" He knewed Jace was a sensitive subject. He got me into a hug. Alec had been such a good friend.I burried my had into his big,muscled chest. His strong arms where raped around me, making sure i didn't ( really) fell apart. " One day, you are over him and have a guy that truly likes that doesn't treat you like crap. You will have kids and all and Jace will regret that stupid mistake. You saved his life several times and still he dropes you like dirt...I hope you can ever get over that betrayal. I mean you choose him over your own boy still is a psychopathetic massmurderer, planning to destroy us all, but he still is your will always be. And you thought Jace was more important then are very sweet and talented. You know, if i wasn't gay i surely would knock on your door." He gave me a nice smile. " Thanks. You really are nice." " You probably are the only one thinking that." " No. Come on. Your parents, Jace, Isabelle..." " they are are supposed to love they would have left me a long time ago." " Whatever. I just think you are special Alec. Trust me on this one." Then we drove to country music was a little bit...Anyway. It kind off got to me and in no time i was singing along. The lyrics of this song where easy. It was ver easy and infecting. In no time Alc just HAD to join. Ever heard of the two of us singing? Believe me when i say it is hilarious.

" Red solo cup.

I fill you up.

Let's have a party.

Let's have a party.

I love you red solo cup.

Red solo.

I fill you up.

Let's have a party.

Let's have a party.

Solo cup.

Solo cup.

Solo cup."

I laughed. Laughing was easy when you truly got to was really nice when you got to know him. " You know Clary..." " Shut up! One of my favorite songs is starting!" I belted it out together with Fun.

" Give me a second.

I need to get my story straight.

My friends are in the bathroom getting higher then the Empire State.

My lover, he's waiting for me just across the bar.

My seat's been taking by some sunglasses 'bout a scar and..."

" Is this really one of you favorite's" He raised it's browes. " Yes, and now shut it!"

" So if by the time the bar closes.

And you feel like falling down.

I'll carry you home.

Tonight.

We are young.

So let's set the world on fire.

We can burn brighter.

Then the sun.

Tonight.

We are young.

So let's set the world on fire.

We can burn brighter then the sun."

And that ladies and gentleman, is how this crazy journey started.
