Breathe in. Hold. Breathe out. Hold. Repeat.
This is not a specific character of the Hunger Games Universe.
Just something that came into my mind.
(I was listening to Lily's Theme a Harry Potter soundtrack, so you can partly blame it on that)
Magnus wasn't too thrilled about going to the Institute.
But he didn't expect that in the end he enjoyed himself there.
His family was an old one. They had a long bloodline of lords and ladies of royal blood. The Lightwoods were important people with important friends. Robert Lightwood was the current Lord of the Lightwood-lands. It was a big territory with many citizens living there. The Lightwood-lords weren’t known for their warm heart and for easy forgiveness. Besides that, since the Lightwoods ruled over the lands there was peace, so nobody wanted to rebel against the family. Yes they were ruled by a hard and cold hand, but there was no war and they could live safe and many saw that as a pretty good deal.
This chapter is to explain the situation and to unterstand the setting better.
Malec is only hinted in this one, but don't worry it is more than hinted in chapter 2 ;)
