After the Bridge Part Three (Jem/Tessa)


A story for those who might have wondered what Tessa and Jem did after they met on Blackfriars Bridge in the epilogue of Clockwork Princess.

Those who do not like Tessa&Jem together or Jessa sexytimes probably should skip this. (You will not miss anything that will affect your understanding of later books.) Those who like that sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.

After the Bridge alternates POV between Jem and Tessa. It will be posted in installments. This is Part Two. It is not the whole story. There are more parts. As this is one short story and not chaptered, each post will contain the whole story from the beginning up to the point where that part ends so that new readers or readers who don’t remember what happened won’t have to hunt down the previous post(s.)

I don’t want tea, I want to find my mother. And then I want to find out who took her in the first place, and I want to kill them

He must be really lonely,” Isabelle said. There was no sympathy in her voice; it was only an observation. Clary thought of him, of the face that she’d been trying to forget, that haunted her nightmares and waking dreams. You asked me who I belonged to. “You have no idea.”

Simon… She called you? Why didn’t you pick it up?
If I’d known it was serious, I would’ve picked up!
Well, how would you know if you didn’t pick it up?!

“There’s no need to clarify my finger snap,” said Magnus. “The implication was clear in the snap itself.”

It was hard to chose between Tessa and Jem! I ended up picking Tessa. ”Men may be stronger, but it is women who endure.”
