You guys remember in the last chapter when we all facepalmed that Maia didn’t immediately notice that Simon didn’t have a freaking heartbeat or to realize that Simon smelt like a corpse. I did give Maia little credit, because that it was quite possible that she was just too focused on the pain of her injuries and that is why she didn’t immediately pick up Simon’s recent changes.
Yet, no that wasn’t the reason. It’s obvious by this fuckery that Clare was waiting to write Maia to finally get a clue in the most melodramatic way possible. I facepalmed so hard when I first read this shit. This is just so stupid and honestly, this just makes everyone from Maia to Clare on down like a complete and utter dumbass .
