“Mom!” Clary shouted into the phone. “Mom, are you all right?”
A loud bussing noise came from the phone. Clary’s mother’s voice cut through the static: “Just promise me you won’t come home. Go to Simon’s and call Luke - tell him that he’s found me - ” Her words were drowned out by a heavy crash like splintering wood.
“Who’s found you? Mom, did you call the police? Did you - “
Her frantic question was cut off by a noise Clary would never forget - a harsh, slithering noise, followed by a thump. Clary heard her mother draw in a sharp breath before speaking, her voice eerily calm: “I love you, Clary.”
The phone went dead.

Two headlights shine through the sleepless night
And I will get you get you alone
Your name has echoed through my mind
And I just think you should think you should know
That nothing safe is worth the drive
“Ally.” Peeta says the words slowly, tasting it. “Friend. Lover. Victor. Enemy. Fiancee. Target. Mutt. Neighbor. Hunter. Tribute. Ally. I’ll add it to the list of words I use to try to figure you out. The problem is, I can’t tell what’s real anymore, and what’s made up.” - Mockingjay

“Don’t you think, then…” Ian paused and leaned closer to me so that I couldn’t seem to see anything around his face, just snow and sapphire and ink. “That maybe you should make the most of what time you have? That you should live while you’re alive?”
“And I started to cry again, realizing that it must be changing him, too, this man who was kind enough to be a soul but strong as only a human could be.” - The Host
Happy Birthday Ashley! Just a fair warning, I am terrible at writing birthday cards and the like, so this may be incredibly awkward. I am so so so happy we got to know each other this year. You’re the only one who understands my obsession with anime and I always feel so comfortable talking you. Having you in my life is something I love very much. You are so kind and helpful and a great listener. Anyone who is lucky enough to know you, should know they are blessed. You are, truly, a great friend to have. Remember to smile and laugh often and to always try and look on the bright side of things. I hope you find this year full of joy and love. Have a beautiful birthday, you deserve it.
