You glance around the area, your eyes land on a large tree near the waterfall. It's large roots sticking just out of the water you slowly walked over towards it the cool mist of the waterfall just touching your skin. You climbed onto the nearest large root just at the edge of the water and sat down right next to the trunk of the tree your feet touching the top of the water.
You glanced over to see Castiel walking towards you his eyes never leaving yours. You could feel your face heating up and the urge to hide your face in your hair becoming stronger with each step he took. Castiel placed his foot on the root and started to unlace his shoes. "This place is really beautiful" you whispered as you ducked your head down to look at the almost crystal clear water you could see small fish swimming around and the rocks on the bottom. "Yes sometimes I come here to think. It's quiet and very few humans have even laid their eyes on this place."
Castiel sat down beside you just a few inches away so your legs weren't touching. His feet went in the water as he was bigger then you. "So..." You were a little hesitant to say anything, you weren't sure what Castiel wanted to talk about and that worried you a little. You were hoping it had nothing to do with your drunk flirting, you still can't remember what you said and you probably didn't want to know.
"Relax babysitter I just wanted to talk about us nothing too exciting" Castiel started kicking his feet lightly in the water your heart started to slow down and you let out a breath you didn't know you were holding. "What do you mean by us?"
"Well I understand that we each care for one another. And I thought it would be nice to really get to know each other." Castiel reached over and lightly took your left hand in his "we have been around each other for half a year and yet I don't know a lot about you."
"That's true I don't know much about you either pizza man, just what Dean and Sam like to tell me". Castiel gripped your hand a little tighter "please don't believe everything they say...you know Dean well...enough to know..." You laughed interrupting what ever Castiel was trying to get out "Dean can be evil when he wants to be. It's alright Cas I take anything he says about you or even Sam with a large grain of salt."
"I knew you were a smart one." Castiel whispered as he laced his fingers in yours, you glanced over through your mess of [h/c] hair and could see a small blush creep up on Castiel's face. You opened your mouth getting ready to say something but stopped short when Castiel looked over at you his bright blue eyes staring into you [e/c] eyes with such conviction that your heart felt like it had stopped.
"I have a hard time explaining how I feel so please bare with me." You nodded as your heart started beating again "I have watched you these last two months, you being on my every thought when I was away from you. I was horribly distracted when you weren't in sight and it got even worse when the boys would take you out on hunts. I watched over you as much as I could and everyone you got hurt it felt like a hole was being ripped in my chest. I've never felt like this before and for the first few weeks it confused me but soon I realized I had actually fallen for you."
Castiel looked down at your intertwined fingers and took a deep breath before continuing "It scared me how easy it was for me to think about you and how easy it was to get lost in those thoughts. Then you said all those things to me that night at the bar" you swallowed the lump those words caused "I know you don't remember but I also know that when people are drunk they usually say what they have hidden, their true feelings."
"Cas?" He looked up at you his eyes soft and hopeful "even if I don't remember what I said I do know how I feel for you. Since the moment I met you I couldn't get you off my mind. My life has never been easy and it seems to get worse every year but since I met you and the boys my life has turned around. I actually smile and laugh, I hadn't done that since my family died. It's not perfect the boys and I argue like real siblings when we are on a hunt or just around each other too much. But your always there to help when we need you and it's a wonderful life to know I'm not alone."
Castiel reached his free hand over and cupped your right cheek "you'll never be alone with me" he brought his lips down on your softly both of you closed your eyes as your lips met. The kiss was gentle almost comforting, when he pulled away you felt safe almost like the dark could never touch you as long as Castiel had a hold of your hand.
Castiel released your hand and picked you up quicker then you thought possible. He scooted on the root taking over your spot right next to the trunk of the tree. He leaned his back against the tree putting a leg on each side or the root his toes still in the water. He set you on the root with your back against his chest and his arms wrapped around your waist keeping you flush against him. Castiel leaned his chin on your head as you brought your hands up running them along his strong arms. "Does this mean I have a guardian angel now?" You chuckled.
"You could look at it that way if you so chose, or you could say you have a pizza man that happens to be an angel." You let out a small laugh and settled against his hold your eyes slowly started to close as you relaxed. As your eyes fully shut you could feel a peaceful unconsciousness creeping into you. Even though you had only woken up a couple hours before you felt so safe held in your angel's arms that you just couldn't help feeling sleepy. You fought to stay awake but it was a losing battle in this warm, quiet setting.
Your last conscious thought was strange; you thought you felt feathers wrap around your arms and slowly block out the light that had tried to seep into your closed eyes. You didn't get a chance to think much of it as sleep took over. You didn't sleep long maybe an hour at most, when you woke up you were in the same spot you had fallen asleep in. Groaning as you forced your eyes open and brought your hands up to rub the sleep from them.
"Why did you let me fall asleep?" You grumbled as you tried to stifle the yawn trying to escape "you looked so peaceful and you haven't slept well in weeks." You smirked at the last comment you handy slept well for the last 3 weeks. Since the last demonic possession case you went on by yourself. You refused to talk about what happened with anyone it had been a horrible case and you still had nightmares from time to time about it.
"We should head back, the boys are probably wondering where you took me." Castiel unwrapped his arms from you as you scooted away from him back towards dry land. He followed suit grabbing shoes in one hand and taking yours in his other.
You two were standing in the library back at the bunker, Dean and Sam were sitting at a table researching a new case from the look of all the books and the laptops. They both looked up at you, Dean's face lit up with a mischievous smirk. "So where did the two love birds run off to?" You gripped Castiel's hand a little tighter before you worked up the courage to say something. "Jealous Dean? I'm sorry but pizza man is all mine and where we went is our little secret."
Dean's face fell, Sam tried to cover up a loud laugh with a cough causing Dean to glare at him "you told her! You told her about those fan girls didn't you!" Sam hunched over trying to hold in his laughter as his shoulders shook. Sam and you had talked about different things while out drinking or when you were just alone in the bunker he had become a close friend and you both enjoyed sharing old hunting tails, especially if they bothered Dean.
You pulled Castiel out of the library and away from the boys. Dean's yells and Sam's laughter echoed through the whole bunker as you walked towards your room with Castiel in tow. You stopped in front of your door turning around and on top toes placed a kiss on Castiel's cheek. "Thank you for showing me your secret place." Castiel blushed a little, he nodded as you released his hand. You left him there as you opened your bedroom door and walked in. You leaned against your door as you closed it you heard Castiel's bare feet walk away from your room.
You had been dating Castiel for 5 weeks when a large case had come up. It was supposed to be a simple salt and burn case but turned out to be three cases in one; you had dealt with the lady in white by burning her bones, a witch had caused the woman In white and was taken out with a bullet to the heart, the last part was a demon causing all of the chaos it took all three of you to finally exorcise it.
When you had finally gotten back to the bunker the following day all three of you were dead on your feet. The only good thing about the whole case is no one got hexed and you all had only minor cuts and bruises so no need for medical treatment. You drug your feet straight to your room, you wanted to sleep for a month. You walked into your room and were surprised as soon as you closed the door you were pinned against it strong hands held your face as soft but demanding lips met yours. Your [e/c] eyes met the blue ones of your angel, worry and fear filled the blue pools in front of you.
Castiel pulled his lips from yours leaving you almost breathless "Cas?" He didn't say anything as he looked you over, he let his hands slid from your face and down your arms. He took ahold of your hands and lightly pulled you towards your bed, you could see he had laid out your favorite comfortable bed cloths. He released your hands and picked them up handing them gently to you then in a woosh he was gone.
You were a little shocked at his reaction but you really wanted to change out of your hunting cloths. So as quickly as your slightly sore form would let you that's just what you did. As you climbed into your bed too tired to do much else another woosh and Castiel was standing beside your bed. He grabbed your covers and tucked you in placing a soft kiss on your head before you were out.
You jumped awake not more then 30 minutes later your nightmare had returned and it had gotten worse. You were sitting up on your bed sweat pouring down your face and tears pooling in your eyes. You looked around your dark bedroom making sure you were safe you grabbed tight to your blankets and tried to calm yourself "Pizza man..." You whimpered and in a small woosh Castiel was standing at the foot of your bed. "Yes [y/n]..." He was by your side in an instant seeing your face twisted in fear.
Castiel crouched down so he was eye level with you and touched the side of your face and you didn't hesitated you dove into his chest and grabbed his overcoat tightly. The nightmare all but forgotten as his warm strong arms wrapped around you. Castiel picked you up and sat down on the bed with his back on your headboard and you tightly wrapped up in his arms. Neither of you spoke you just sat there together, finally your body started to drift back off to sleep against Castiel's shoulder.
Castiel watched you for awhile as you slept in his arms your face peaceful. He wanted to stay with you like this but he couldn't get your fear covered face out of his mind. You were one of the strongest hunters he knew then again he only really knew the three of you. So Castiel slowly climbed from the bed and placed you back in it, you whimpered a little. Castiel shrugged out of his overcoat and covered you in it and you settled back down. He looked down at you one more time before leaving.
Your dreams now filled with the beautiful waterfall and Castiel your nightmare gone and your sleep peaceful. You awoke the next day to loud knocking and Sam's voice yelling through the door "get up now or Dean is going to eat everything!" You groan sitting up in the bed "coming" you started to bring your hand up to move your hair from your face when you noticed your blanket was an odd color and had sleeves. You realized quickly that the familiar overcoat of your angel was draped over you like a blanket. You smiled down at it he was horribly awkward when it came to your relationship most of the time but sometimes he just does the sweetest things.
You climbed from the bed swinging the overcoat over your form and shoving your arms in the sleeves. It was big on you but it felt perfect as it touched your skin. You walked out of your room and straight to the kitchen. A smile plastered on your face as you say down at the table in your normal seat a plate full of scrambled eggs toast and some bacon your normal after hunt breakfast with the boys. Dean sat a crossed from you his fingers laced together under his chin, his elbows on either side of his empty plate. "So what's with the...creepy smile?"
You brought your head up "what creepy smile?" You grabbed your fork and stabbed at the eggs "the one on your face right now and why do you have Castiel's jacket on?" Sam who had been grabbing his food at the time sat down beside you "you do have a weird grin on your face you could say your glowing!?" Dean's eyebrows jumped up "don't tell me you two finally...?!" He didn't finish but you knew what he was getting at "no! I mean we aren't....come on...why does it..." You could finish a sentence you looked between the two boys before panicking "pizza man!" A woosh echoed in the kitchen as soft hands touched each of your shoulders "is something the matter [y/n]?" You grabbed your plate "poof us somewhere!"
In an instant you were back in your room your plate held in a death grip "care to explain?" You looked up at him a small amount of worry crept into his eyes, you shook your head before walking over to your bed and sitting down "just the boys being nosy." Castiel nodded "yes they seem to do that a lot with you lately." You started eating your breakfast "did you sleep well?" Castiel hadn't moved and was watching you curiously "yes thank you."
"What had you so frightened?" You froze your fork in mid air "it's nothing really just old wounds...you know the ones that never heal." Castiel cocked his head to the side "if you are injured I can..." You let out a loud sigh "not that kind of injury, you see the things we deal with every day right?" He nodded "sometimes those things never leave you and sometimes they infect your mind even when your asleep i.e. Nightmares."
"Well you seemed to calm down when I am here do you want me to stay with you at night he?" You blushed you knew he meant it innocently but your mind because of Dean was so far in the cutter you doubted it would ever see the light of day again. "That um...would be..." You were failing English for a second time today you could figure out what to say that didn't sound creepy or over sexual now.
