Shorts based on The Mortal Instruments.

These are shorts or snippets that I wrote inspired by the book The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.

The bases for the shorts are about a girl named Aimee who lives in the institute with Jace, The Lightwoods, Clary, featuring Magnus from time to time and many other Characters with make appearances.


1. Not My Mother

“Aimee will you please slow down”. Jace yelled as he jogged down the hall to catch up to me. Stopping I turned around to face him.

“What now?”

“Why did you walk off like that?”

“I just found out that that women in there.” I pointed at the door at the end of the corridor. “Is my Mother.”  I just need to be left alone for a bit to let this sink in and workout how I feel about it, that’s all.”

“I get that your angry and must be hard for you process right now but I think you should at least let her explain.”

“What if I don’t want to hear why she lied to me? Don’t I get a choice whether or not I let this affect me? Maybe I just want to forget she ever told me.”

“But she’s your mother.”

“No she’s not. Well she is but…” I looked down at the stone floor feeling the tears make wet tracks down my face.”

“But what.” Jace asked gently.

“I had a mum even if she wasn’t my biological mother she still loved me like I was her own and when she died I grieved and moved on. I actually can’t believe that they never told me the truth or how they kept it a secret for all these years. Even my older brother never hinted that we didn’t have the same mother.”

I waited for Jace to say something. But he just remained silent.

“Jace can I ask you something?”

“What is it?”

“How do you forgive someone that you know had an affair with a married man and then you have a baby with that person. She left and took Clary and allowed me to believe for all these years that Jane was my mother. It makes me feel like I was the mistake she didn’t want to deal with that she didn’t love or care enough, so why should I be nice and give her the chance to explain her reasons when it seems pretty clear that she just didn’t want me.”

“If you think about it if this had been different you would have been raised like Clary. Having a blocked placed in your mind with no contact or understanding of the shadow world and you wouldn’t have…” he trailed off and looked down.

“And wouldn’t have what?”

“You wouldn’t have lived in Idris and you wouldn’t have lived next to me.” He sighed and held my hands in his. “And you never would have met me till now, we would have been strangers.”

“Meeting you, growing up with you, having you by my side that makes me glad that she left me because I was able to find people that care and love me. I would never change anything that happened I just wish Jocelyn had never told me the truth.”

“So you don’t want to go back and talk to her about this?”

I let go of his hands my heart aching as I did and starting backing away. “Maybe one day I might be able to listen to what she has to say but right now I’m going to go up to the green house I need time to clear my head.”

“Do you want me to come with you?”

I smiled as a tear rolled down my cheek and kissed him on the forehead. “No, I think you should get back to the others.”

“What do you want me to tell Jocelyn?”

“To go home.”

“And Clary?”


“Yes you know your new found sister.”

“Tell her that I’ not mad at her and that if she wants to talk to me that she can come see me later in my room.”

“Why don’t you come with me and tell them yourself? I have a feeling that It might sound better coming from you.”

“No I can’t go back down there and face her or the sympathetic looks the others are bound to give me.”

“Are you sure that you are going to be ok by yourself?” he asked as he took my hand in his again, not taking his eyes from mine.

“Yes Jace, I’ll be fine.” I forced a smile. “I think that I just need to be alone right now.” And with that I squeezed Jace's hand once before letting go. I turned around and made my way up the black spiral stair case up to the circler rooftop green house. Not daring to look back at Jace but I could still feel his blue eyes on my back as I disappeared out of site.
