“Jace told Clary once you’d walk all over me in high-heeled boots.”
“That was then. You’re different now.” She eyed him.
“You’re not scared of me.” He touched her face. “And you’re not scared of anything.”
And I realize now that I won’t be anymore ready to lose you then than I am right now. Which is not at all.
