“Is one of the Lightwoods. You can’t go over there. The moment they see you, they’ll tell
the Clave you’re here. And then you won’t be the only one in trouble with the Law. Luke
will be too.”
But the Lightwoods won’t betray me to the Clave. They wouldn’t do that—
The words died on her lips. There was no way she was going to be able to convince
Amatis that the Lightwoods she’d known fifteen years ago no longer existed, that Robert and Maryse weren’t blindly loyal fanatics anymore. This woman might be Luke’s sister, but she was still a stranger to Clary. She was almost a stranger to Luke. He hadn’t seen her fifteen years—had never even mentioned she existed. Clary leaned back against the, feigning weariness. “You’re right,” she said. “I don’t feel well. I think I’d better sleep.”
“Good idea.” Amatis leaned over and plucked the empty mug out of her hand. “If you want to take a shower, the bathroom’s across the hall. And there’s a trunk of my old clothes at the foot of the bed. You look like you’re about the size I was when I was your age so they might fit you. Unlike those pajamas,” she added and smiled, a weak smile that Clary didn’t return. She was too busy fighting the urge to pound her sts against the mattress in frustration.

Chapter 5: A Problem With Memory
Okay, another slightly big passage, but once again you needed to see this shit for yourselves. In this passage, Clary really racking up the sue levels in this chapter. First off, Clary is being very bratty and very arrogant to think she knows more about The Lightwoods than a woman who has known them close to fifteen years. Also, if she used her tiny peanut brain she would realize that what Amatis is saying has not in one way contradicted what Clary and the audience has seen so far.
Due Valentine betraying them, The Lightwoods are very pro-Clave Any one with eyes could have seen that. You all you have to look at the actions of the Lightwoods during “City of Ashes” to know that. Yet, surely since Clary is the headsue, this means that they wouldn’t rat her out.
Clary never for once thinks that keeping her presence from The Clave could jeopardize everything for the Lightwoods. Not only would they lose control over The New York Insititute (which is the only home Alec and Isabelle have ever know), they could quite possibly sacrificing their lives and the lives of their children over this bullshit. I have yet to see The Clave act moderately when it comes to dispensing justice.
But oh no, it’s all about Clary Fray and what she wants. And just like Clary suddenly opened a portal to Idris, she is going to stamp her foot and wail that she can’t have her way. I have three and a four-year-old, and the way she is acting to not getting her way is very similar.
Honestly, this chapter, hell this bit of passage here makes me hate Clary even more than I already do!
