At the center of the mountain was a hand, fingers splayed, clawing at the dirt. ”Simon!” Clary tried to rush forward, but Raphael yanked her back. “Let me go!” She tried to pull herself free, but Raphael’s grip was like steel. “Can’t you see he needs our help?” “He should do this himself, ” Raphael said, without loosening his hold on her. “It is better that way.”
