Beauty and the beast ‘I keep hearing about this curse what is it about, what does it do to Magnus?’ Alec asked wanting to know more, maybe this was the reason why Magnus was so upset, ‘Is this the reason why he is so upset?’
Catrina sighed ‘I can’t tell you much, you will have to ask him yourself’ she spoke softly, Alec understood what she meant.
‘Do you know where I can find him then’ He asked wanting to know he felt bad that he didn’t stop Magnus and properly made sure he was ok, he seemed so sad yet angry
‘I’m sorry I know where he is but you can’t go there, he doesn’t like people going in there sorry’ Catrina spoke softly looking at Alec.
Alec looked as his stew poking around at ‘Ah okay if you see him can you tell him I’ve been looking for him’ Alec got up and walked back to his room he knew that Magnus doesn’t want people near him but couldn’t help feeling like he needed to see him.
He opened the door to his room and closed behind making sure he locked it and slide down the door covering his mouth trying to muffle the sounds of crying that came from him, he felt guilty is it because what he said to him? Was he the reason he was upset? Is it his fault? Questions filled his head, blaming himself for Magnus’ state. Tears hit the floor in pools streaming down his face.
Magnus walked back from the room wiping his face trying to get rid of any evidence that he had been crying for a long period of time. He walked along the corridor where Alec was staying and passed his door, he stopped at his door trying to decide whether to go in or not, he went to knock on his door but could hear muffled cries come from the other side or the door. Magnus sighed and knocked on the door.
‘Alexander? Are you ok?’ Magnus asked gently trying not to scare the boy any more than he did.
He could hear shuffling behind the door and the door unlocking and Alec standing in front of him red marks covered his face from where he had been crying.
