Dusk had fallen over Brooklyn as Magnus returned to his apartment. He was greeted by Chairman Meow, rubbing against his legs. The warlock gentle scooped the tabby fur-ball into his hands and walked around his room. Some things were missing. Alec must've came for his things while he was out. Deep in his heart, he wished to go back and re-write what he had done, but what's done is done. When he walked to the kitchen area, he noticed the spare key he had given to Alec, that still held the key-chain with his name he had bought as a little gift when they were traveling, was sitting on a folded piece of paper. Magnus set down the tabby, taking the note and unfolding it to see a letter written in familiar handwriting.
I know whatever I say now won't change your mind, but I want you to hear what I have to say. I love you, too. I know it is late to say it now, but I wanted you to know that no matter where we are and who we meet, I will always love you. I made the biggest mistake to let Camille to get to me, but I was afraid. Afraid of dying alone, without you and I felt like another "pawn" in your life. But now I can see that it shouldn't matter anymore because I love you and I am deeply sorry for what I have done to you, to us
I'm not asking you to take me back. All I ask is if you can forgive me. You made my life great, especially when we went traveling. I may have been a bit "awkward" in more ways than one, but those were the happiest times of my life and I wanted you to know. So now I bid farwell and I wish you great happiness in your future.
I will always love you,
Magnus' hand was shaking, still clenching the letter, almost crumpling it. Tears stung the back of his eyes, but using all his will to not let them through. He wobbled to his bedroom and practically fell on the mattress. His body felt like lead and could barely lift a finger, as he stared at the photos on the ceiling of him and Alec, visiting the different areas of the world. Had he done the right thing? Why was he having second thoughts right now?
Chairman hopped onto the bed and curled at Magnus' side, hoping to try and comfort his master. Magnus absent-mindlessly started scratching the cat's head, deep in thought of his time with Alec. Every relationship he has been through seemed nothing, compared to what he had for Alec. He blinked the tears that kept coming and a sudden jolt of electricity in his body caused him to jump out of bed and go to his stack of books.
Chairman meowed at the sudden movement, but stretched and went to his water bowl. After a while of searching, he found what he was looking for. The Book of the White. His jaw clenched, feeling the books content in his hands, and his mind racing of his current thoughts. A small scarlet ribbon laid between a couple pages and Magnus turned to where the ribbon lie. The ribbon was marking the page he had been staring at for weeks and he had read its contents over and over. The Spell of Making an Immortal, Mortal.
