Clary looks down the very long line outside the club Pandemonium and tries to contain her impatience. They've been waiting nearly an hour and they still aren't anywhere near getting entry.

"Maybe we should have gone somewhere else." She tries not to pout.

"We could come back later. I know the bouncer that comes on at ten."

"My mom is expecting me back before then. I think she wants to throw me a little party - which you are super invited to, by the way."

Permalink

"I know I'm invited, she asked me a month ago. But still, I'm pretty sure we can just wait a little while longer. The line is moving."

Permalink

The line is even longer than it usually is at Pandemonium, filled with people looking forward to seeing the band playing tonight. It's moving at a fair pace, but there's still a ways to go before Clary and Skye reach the front. 

Permalink

Some people seem to be ignoring it, though. Three people, specifically, two of them young men wearing dark clothing which covers most of their skin, and the third a young woman wearing a long, flowing dress. As they pass Skye and Clary's place in the line, Clary can make out a number of thick black tattoos peaking out from beneath the hems of the guys' clothes, though it's hard to tell if the girl has them as well.

"I guess we're not hot enough to get into the express line like they are." She most definitely is checking them out.

Permalink

Skye looks.

Skye blinks back at Clary. "Who are you talking about?"

Permalink

Skye's not the only one who doesn't seem to notice them. They move past the line without stirring any protests or interest from anyone else - and even if this was an unusally calm crowd, they really should be getting more interest like Clary's. 

They don't seem to find this odd, either. Their eyes skim over the crowd disinterestedly, when they aren't focused on their destination.

Clary isn't about to point, her mom raised her better than that. Instead, she moves Skye physically and faces him at them.

"The two blonde guys and the hottest girl I've ever seen in my life in the white dress."

Permalink

Hottest-girl-she's-ever-seen leads the way towards the door, ignoring everyone else.

Permalink

"Clary, I'm not seeing what you're seeing."

Permalink

Just before they go through the doors, one of the guys glances in their direction, a slight frown touching his lips as he notices where they're looking. He stares at Clary for a moment, before his companion taps his shoulder and asks a question. He shakes his head, dismissing it, and they vanish inside.

"They just went inside. I don't know how you missed them though, they stuck out like a sore thumb."

Permalink

Skye looks towards the door and frowns. "Point them out again when we get inside?"

Permalink

"Oh, I'm going to ask them to dance. We can both get to know them then."

Permalink

Skye blushes and nudges her softly.

"Of course you are."

Permalink

Onward goes the line, and eventually they're passing through the doors as well. The air inside the club is hot and humid, and the sound of the music almost a physical presence pressing into them. There's no telling where the three who'd caught her attention have gone - the dance floor is flooded with people, and the area around the bar and the tables are nearly as crowded. She'll have to search if she wants to find them, or else hope she comes across them at some point.

So sad. She guesses that she will have to keep an eye out for them on the dance floor. She keeps a steady grip on Skye's hand and pulls him through towards it.

"But first I wanna boogie with my Skye. And because it's my birthday you have to indulge me. That's the rules."

Permalink

"I'll stand next to you and make you look even better. How about that?"

Permalink

Clary laughs and starts to dance.

"Acceptable! Keep an eye out for our mysterious hot-people. You'll definitely know them when you see them."

Permalink

The dance floor welcomes them! It's a very warm welcome, like the crushing hugs of an overly affectionate great-aunt. The band is just as good as the line had suggested it would be, too. Even if they don't run into the mysterious trio again, they look set to have a good time. 

Permalink

Luckily, however, they don't have to settle for that. A few minutes into their expedition into the wilds of the dance floor, Clary can catch sight of both guys hanging out at the edge of the crowd, both their eyes on someone inside it - presumably their third. 

Permalink

Clary gets Skye's attention and then follows their line of sight.

Permalink

Their third dances close with someone - a boy with blue hair. It's a very sensual sort of dance. She's good. She's also leading the blue-haired-boy off to the side and off the dance floor.

Skye... notes where Clary is looking and spots the blue-haired-boy.
