“Lightwood, you have petitioned us for a… stay on the kill order to be placed on your parabatai, Jonathan Morgenstern,” the Inquisitor starts, and Alec has to stop his flinch at the name they use for Jace now. “The Clave has decided to grant your request… but there will be a cost.”
It is almost without hesitation that Alec says, “Name it.”
“There is word of a… faction of downworlders who are considering an alliance with Valentine,” the Inquisitor says. She’s surprisingly cautious in how she says it, especially when she’s probably going to send Alec in to deal with it. He can’t think of any other reason for her to bring it up like this. “We need someone to go undercover amongst the downworld and report back to us whenever anything is discovered.”
Alec sees the subtext. It’s a suicide mission, and as a gay man and Jonathan Morgenstern’s parabatai, you’re expendable.
