Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Clary looked at Jace. At any other time they would have laughed together at Isabelle's moodiness, but there was no humor in his expression, and she knew immediately that whatever they had had between them-whatever had blossomed out of his momentary lack of control-it was gone now. She could taste blood in her mouth and wasn't sure if she had bitten her own lip or he had.
"Jace-" She took a step toward him.
"Don't," he said, his voice very rough. "I can't."
And then he was gone, running as fast as only he could run, a blur that vanished into the distance before she could even take a breath to call him back.
~From Page 189 of City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
