whats up with the Lightwoods
Father.... Father is a worm.
What do you mean, Gabriel? What did Father do?
He's a worm
I know. He has brought shame on the name of Lightwood, and lied to both of us. He shamed and destroyed our mother. But we need not be like him.
You're not listening to me, He's a worm. A worm. A bloody great serpentlike thing.
He's a rat
Did he do something to you? did he touch you? if he tried anything...
No Alec, not like that. he's a rat.
