The boys follow them when they reach the edge, from enough of a distance that the blue-haired boy doesn't notice them. While Clary watches, first the couple and then their followers disappear through a door marked Employees Only.

Well, that's very suss. Clary holds on tight to Skye and they both walk towards the door.

"You saw then this time, right?"

Permalink

"No. But I saw someone else and it looked like they were seeing them."

Permalink

"I love a good birthday mystery. And it's like catnip to you."

She opens the door and peaks through.

Permalink

"Not a cat."

Permalink

With the door open, they can now hear what sounds like a fight going on inside. 

"Will you just- die already-" someone says, his annoyance ringing clear in his tone. 

Permalink

-- well that takes all of the fun out of it.

"Skye, go get the bouncer. Quick."

Permalink

He doesn't question it, though he does squeeze her hand before he leaves.

Permalink

Clary squeezes back, then gathers the rest of her courage and runs into the room.

"Hey, get away from him!"

Permalink

One of them spins around to look at her when she speaks, eyes widening as he takes her in. 

"Who the hell-" 

Permalink

"Alex, watch your side!" The other boy says, sliding in between him and the blue-haired one to catch a- sword? On his own blade. 

Permalink

The girl has a ?whip? and uses it to lash out at the blue-haired-boy.

"Kay, now!"

Permalink

What the hell.

"No!" She rushes forward and - punches the closest person she can to the blue boy.

Permalink

Alex reels back at the punch, not having been expecting it, and falls straight into Kay. 

Permalink

Who curses, stumbling, and only manages to knick the blue-haired boy, leaving a cut on his chest. A stream of black ichor wells up out of it, slowly soaking his shirt a darker shade. 

Permalink

She struggles to keep the blue-haired-boy in her grasp.

"What are you doing?!"

Permalink

"I don't know what you think you're playing at. But you're not killing him!"

She attempts to push past them and free the boy.

Permalink

Alex gets in her way, leaving their quarry to Kay and Isabel, "Look, I don't know what you think you've walked in on, but that thing isn't some innocent victim in need of saving. Back off before you get someone killed." 

Permalink

Kay, meanwhile, steadier on his feet again, quickly presses forward and scores another hit along the boy's side as he thrashes, trying to get out of the whip. 

Permalink

She pushes him.

"That's what I'm trying to stop. My friend is already calling the police. Leave him alone and get out before the cops arrive."

Permalink

He stumbles back, but catches himself before he can fall into the fight, "The cops?" He snorts, "What are you, a mundie? They won't see anything."

Permalink

"Any time you want to cut in," Kay grunts at him, baring his teeth at their quarry as it escapes and brings its sword down on his. 

Permalink

"Fuck-" Alex tugs a knife out of a hidden pocket in his coat, stepping back out of her reach and tossing it at the blue-haired boy. It sinks into his side, and he shrieks - an inhuman, piercing noise which causes Kay to flinch as he disengages. 

Permalink

Clary - freezes and covers her ears.

She looks between them and at the boy and -

Isabel disengages from them and throws out her whip at Clary.

"What are you doing? You could have gotten us all killed."
