****Jace's POV****

He had been pacing the training room floor for the past five minutes now. The wide panel windows let in the rays of sun from outside, lighting the room without the artificial lighting. The staff he has in his grip had been twirled a great many times now, his skilled hands noting every divot and scratch in the adamas endowed wood.

He had been training since the early hours of the morning, so much so that sweat clung to him like a second skin. Training had always been a form of emotional release for him. Jace could always count on a hard work out session to relieve the tension he had riddling his tired frame.

But that had not been the case today.

Jace had thought long and hard about what he was going to say to this person. He could only hope that they would be able to help him.

Jace was uncertain that they could.

"Jace, you wanted to see me?"

He turns to see Simon walking in. His friend was decked out in casual wear: a Star Wars logo t-shirt, some skinny jeans and an old pair of white tennis shoes. There were plenty of runes covering the new Shadowhunter's arms already, despite the fact that he'd only been one for a little over two months now.

"Yea, there's something I need to talk to you about." Jace walks over to the bench, grabbing up his water bottle to take a big gulp from it. The cool liquid was refreshing to swallow. It satisfied the dehydration from all the training he had been doing. Though it did little to solve the problem of his sweaty pa

n his hand was covered in dewy moisture. Some of which was sliding down onto his hand. Usually, he would not be using a regular, plastic water bottle. In his haste to get to the training room this morning though, he had forgone his normal metallic bottle.

"I think it might be best if I just show you." What Simon pulls out next sends Jace into a surprised sort of shock.

The object turns out to be a small, velvet box. And when that box is opened, there is a ring inside. And not just any ring....

An engagement ring.

"That-that's....." Jace is at a loss for words.

"I never knew how much I needed Isabelle in my life until I had her. I-I...Jace, I want to marry her. I want to marry Izzy. It's all I want. So what do you think?"

Jace may be uncertain about how he will propose to Clary, but he knows how Simon's confession makes him feel.

"That's wonderful news Simon." He murmurs. His heart bursts with happiness for Isabelle and Simon both. He only wants the best for both of them.
