Alec sank down onto the wall beside Jace. “Have you been out here waiting for me all
“Who says I’m waiting for you?”
“It went fine if that’s what you were worried about. I left Simon with the Inquisitor.”
“You left him? You didn’t stay to make sure everything went all right?”
“It was fine,” Alec repeated. “The Inquisitor said he’d take him inside personally and send him back to—”

he doesn’t). Yet, it’s a really weird way for her to do that. This actually makes it seem that Jace sees Simon as more than a tool to be used or as competition. I don’t know about you, but this really adds to the Jace/Simon ship in my opinion.
Now, there is another option that I might have to talk about. I honestly don’t think Jace cares one little bit about Simon. If Simon died that very day, Jace would shrug his shoulders and keep on rolling. He probably tries to put a facade of sadness in front of Clary, but otherwise? One more vampire dusted! I think he doesn’t want Simon alone with the Inquisitor or The Clave because it’s quite possible that Simon will spill the beans about everything and then he would be in deep shit with The Clave.
And honestly, this also shows that Jace doesn’t really trust his soul-bondmate all that much, because he could have easily taken Alec aside and tell him to not leave Simon alone. Apparently, Alec is supposed to read his mind. Honestly, as much as Clare likes to tout Alec and Jace’s supposedly deep relationship, I have yet to see any real evidence of it at all.
