Song fic chapter five
Jace and Clary continued.
It’s been a day since Clary left. She texted me after she got settled. She said thanks for the flowers and I forgive you.
I’m glad she forgave me or I wouldn’t be able to give her, her, surprise when she comes back in 13 days. I was working with the others to try and pull this off. Izzy, Simon, and I were picking out the song. I already had the outfit picked out and it was approved by Magnus, Raphael, and Izzy.
“Hey what about ‘When I say I do’ by Matthew west?” Simon asked from where he was sitting on the floor across from the couch.
“No that songs to slow and doesn’t fit the purpose.” Izzy replied.
“Okay that songs out.” Simon said going back to his computer.
“Oh what about ‘Marry me’ by train.” Izzy said jumping up and down on the couch.
“No Clary hates train.” Simon said looking up from his laptop. “A song of theirs was playing during a time she fell when we were younger and now anytime she hears anyone of their songs it reminds her of that.”
“Okay well that’s plan 12 out the window.” Izzy said crumpling the paper and throwing it away in the trashcan.
I was pacing back and forth in the living room between the two of them thinking of all the different songs I could use.
“What about ‘Marry you’ by Bruno Mars?” I asked biting my nails.
“That is a good choice but it does say ‘we’re looking for something dumb to do’.” Simon replied.
“Oh that’s right. This isn’t a dumb thing to do. You don’t want to give her the wrong message.” Izzy said crossing her arms in front of her.
“You’re right. Ugh!!!! This is hopeless I’m never going to find the right song.” I said falling into the arm chair behind me.
“Don’t say that. We’ll find the perfect song you’ll play it for her and then you guys will live happily ever after with a big family.” Izzy said.
“Wait I think I may have the perfect song.” Simon said typing at his laptop.
“What is it?” I asked looking at him.
“A song by Jason Derulo called ‘Marry me.’ Ahh here it is.” He said and started to play it. We listened to it play and I’m pretty sure we all fell in love with it. After it finished playing Simon said, “That’s her favorite song from him. I can’t believe I didn’t think about it before.”
“I don’t care I’m just glad you thought about it now. I’ll have to change a few of the words but it’s perfect. Thank you Simon.” I said.
“Well you know all in a day’s work.” He replied while putting his hands behind his head and leaning backwards which caused him to fall. Izzy and I laughed than his phone rang. He answered it and said with a groan. “Hello?”
“Simon, necesitas ir a los dormitorios lo antes posible. Los miembros del clan están peleando y ninguno de ellos me dará una respuesta directa y juro Si alguno de ellos tirar otra almohada o cualquier cosa voy a rasgar sus cabezas de sus hombros y utilizarlo como una pelota de bolos.”
“Raphael calm down you’re speaking too fast. I can’t understand you and you’re speaking in Spanish.” Simon replied sitting up.
“Oh I’m sorry but what I said was, Simon, you need to get to the dorms ASAP. The clan members are fighting and none of them will give me a straight answer and I swear if any of them throw another pillow or anything I’m going to rip their heads off their shoulders and use it as a bowling ball.”
“Okay then what are they fighting about?” he asked standing up with his laptop.
“I don’t know. I ask one person they tell me one thing then someone else jumps in and says that’s not right!!!” Raphael said exasperated. “All I need is you to come down here and figure out what’s wrong so we can stop it.”
“Alright I’ll be there soon just picked out the song. See you soon love you.”
“Please hurry.” He said with what sounded like a whimper.
“Hey got to go you guys going to be okay?” he said walking to the door.
“Yeah we’ll be fine go make sure that your boyfriend doesn’t commit murder.” Izzy said
“Alright I’ll let you know what happens. Later!”
No one POV
The fight was about who the best Star Wars character was and which movie was best. Simon and Raphael got it under control relatively quickly after they found out what the problem was which took about 3 hours. Jace was fixing the song with Alec making sure it was perfect.
Clary was having a relaxing vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine with her mom and dad. She’d been gone a week so far. She talked to everyone back home every day.
Magnus and the rest of them had got the decorations for the beach party. They’d also made a list of snacks for the party as well. Everything was coming along perfectly.
Magnus had reserved a beach for them to use. Jace was in charge of trying to figure out how to get Clary to the beach before going to the loft.
“Alright so everything’s planned you know the song the beach is reserved for us have all the things we need to set it up and pull it off. Carly’s flight comes in at noon on Friday you’re gonna pick her number we’ll make sure of that. Don’t want a repeat of last time.” Alec said with a chuckle.
“Yeah, yeah I get it. I know I messed up last time. I have like five alarms set for me to pick her up and I’m gonna make sure my phone is charged.” I said roll in his eyes playfully.
“Look you got the ring you got your outfit that’s been approved by ya know everyone. There’s just one more thing you gotta do.” Izzy said looking directly at me.
“What’s that?” I ask with a raised eyebrow.
“You need to ask her parents.” She says leaning closer to me. “They have forgiven you many times for the stuff you’ve pulled over the years. Her parents adore you, but this is one thing that they would not forgive. I’m sure they’re expecting this to happen at some point I mean you two have been dating since freshman year. It’s been six years. If you want to keep having the relationship you have with them you should ask them.” She says putting her hands up and leaning back on the couch.
“You’re right. I should ask her parents that should’ve been the first thing I did.” I say nodding my head.
“So when are you gonna call them?” Alec asked as he got up to get a drink.
“I’m not sure I think I’ll text them to make sure she’s out of the house and I’ll video chat them.” I say as I lean back in the chair.
“That sounds like a good plan.” Alec muses as he walks back in with a soda.
Just then Izzy’s phone goes off, she looks at it and realizes she’s going to be late.
“Shit.” She says standing up and grabbing her jacket. “Alec can you give me a ride to the park across town. I’m supposed to meet Meliorn over there in 15 minutes?” She asks as she gets the rest of her stuff.
“Sure. I should be getting home anyways.” He was stretching as he gets up.
“Oh thank you big brother. Love you Jace don’t forget to call them.” Izzy reminds me as she practically runs out the door.
“I won’t I’ll text them right now. Thanks guys.” I say as they walkout of the loft. After they left I shut the door and went to sit in the couch again. I pulled out my phone and debated on either texting Luke Jocelyn or both. I decided to go with texting Luke.
Idiotblonde started a private chat with werewolf dad.
Idiotblonde: Hello Mr. Garroway.
Werewolf dad: Jace? What’s up with the formalities?
Idiotblonde: I would like to ask you a question regarding my relationship with your daughter, but it is a question that would be better if we could do this face to face. Can we start a video chat?
Werewolf dad: sure one moment.
Werewolf dad started a video call with Idiotblonde
“So Jace what is this question you want to ask me?” Luke asked when I answered the call.
“Is Mrs. Garroway there?” I ask dodging the question for now.
“Yeah she’s here. Jocelyn can you come in here?” He called out to her and she walked in.
“What’s up?” she asked standing behind Luke.
“Hello Mrs. Garroway. You both know that Clary and I have been dating since freshman year of high school. We are going into our second year of college and thank you for the courtesy of letting me live with her for the past six months.” I said then took a breath as the both looked at each other and nodded along with what I was saying.
“We have been dating for five years and I was wondering if you would let me ask her to marry me.”
They looked at each other and smiled. “Well Jace if you promise to continue to make her happy then yes you can ask Clary to marry you.” Luke said smiling.
“Thank you. You won’t regret this.” I say smiling. “Now I have it planned out I was just waiting for you so we could put it into motion. I would like the two of you too be there when I ask her.” I said wringing my hands.
“How do you suggest we do that?” Jocelyn asked.
“Well I was thinking that after she leaves you two have a flight booked and I’ll have someone pick you up at the airport. You should get there right before I start the song.” He says telling them the plan.
“You’ve thought this out haven’t you?” He asked smirking.
“Yes I have sir.” I said my earlier hesitation gone.
“Alright then it looks like you have yourself a plan.” Luke said nodding
“Thank you sir.” I said once again and we started talking about how they were going to get here and who was going to pick them up.
Friday morning Clary’s POV
I woke up on Friday morning and stretched. Today was the day I was finally going back to Brooklyn. Don’t get me wrong I love my parents but Maine isn’t my home. I went to take a shower and got changed then went down for breakfast.
“Morning sweetie.” Mom said as I walked down the stairs.
“Morning Mom. Morning Dad.” I say kissing them both on the cheek.
“I see someone’s excited.” Dad said smiling at me as he handed me a plate.
“I love you guys and these past two weeks have been a blast Brooklyn’s my home and I can’t wait to get back.” I say sitting down.
“So I take it you have everything you need?” Mom asked sitting across from me.
“Yup I packed everything that I didn’t need this morning last night. I’ll go through and double check before I leave.” I say taking a bite of food.
After breakfast I went upstairs and made sure I did have everything then I took my bags downstairs and called a cab. “Well I guess this is it.” I say on the front porch of my parents’ house.
“Well it’s not like we’re never gonna see you again.” Dad says hitting my shoulder playfully.
“I know I’m just gonna miss you.” I say wiping my eyes.
“Don’t worry you’ll see us soon enough. We’ll come visit before summer ends.” Mom says pulling me into a hug.
“You’re right the time will fly by. Well I gotta get going. See you guys later.” I say waving to them as I got in the cab.
The drive to the airport was quiet as I watched Maine go by. It was sad leaving my parents but I’d see them soon enough. I got to the airport and paid the cab driver then took my stuff inside and waited for my flight to be called.
I sat in one of the chairs and started to sketch. If sketched a lot of the scenery in Maine when I was our wig my parents. Thirty minutes later my plane was called I gathered my stuff and boarded the plane. I texted Jace and told him I was just boarding and that I’d see them all soon.
“Alright Clary just texted me and said that she’d be here in a few hours. They got a few stops to make before her plane lands here.” I say walking into the room.
“Alright well Magnus and I will set up the beach Alec’s going to pick Luke and Jocelyn at the airport in an hour and take them to the beach. You’re going to stay here with Simon and practice the song just a little more.” Izzy says as she looks at her clipboard.
“It looks like you got everything down to a tea.” I say chuckling.
“Well it’s not every day that your brother is going to ask the love of his life to marry him.” She said giving a pointed look to Alec, who judged kinda blushed and excused himself to get a glass of water.
“Thanks Iz. I don’t know what I’d do without you.” I say pulling her into a hug. She hugged back then pulled away.
“You’d probably die.” She said shrugging.
“Wow thanks for the vote of confidence.” I say rolling my eyes.
“Alright enough chit chat. We’re going to start on the beach while you three work on the song. Then Alec will pick up her parents and Jace don’t forget to pick up the bride to be.” Magnus said standing next to Izzy.
“Don’t worry I got five alarms set.” I say putting my hands up.
“Plus the ones Alec and I have.” Simon said piping up from where he was sitting on the couch.
