5.10 Abandon All Hope…
Two idiots getting married (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
this has probably been done a million times over already, but it was too tempting
(prompt: more kindergarten teacher au)
They’ve been dating for six months and two days, and Cas knows Dean is the one. He doesn’t want to wait any longer to have Dean be his on a more permanent basis so he makes a reservation at the nicest restaurant in town, the kind you need a suit and a tie for. He has to prepare weeks in advance, but it’s going to be perfect. He just knows it.
He gets there early, too nervous to hang around his apartment, and sits at their table. He orders a water and waits. And waits. And waits. Dean tends to run a little late, but after twenty minutes of no word, Cas starts to worry. Five minutes later, he’s frantically scrolling for Dean’s number.
The phone rings three times, each rattling Cas’s insides until he feels sick in the stomach. When Dean finally answers with a soft, “Hey,” Cas is far too relieved to be angry.
"Dean," Cas says. "Thank God. I thought something happened to you."
"Oh, no. No, no. Crap, I knew I should have called but I… well…" His voice trails off into silence.
Cas waits for a moment before prompting, “Dean?”
"I mean, I was there, but… I didn’t have a tie, Cas," Dean says.
"I’m sure they have one you can borrow."
"They did, and it was huge and polka-dotted and I… I looked like a clown," Dean says.
"I don’t care what you wear," Cas starts to say, but then the meaning of the words slowly creeps into his mind. Dean was here. Dean’s no longer here. Dean left. Dean left him.
“Good times.” “Yeah, they were.”
I can find your halo. Guides me to wherever you fall.
"You know why God cast me down? Because I loved him. More than anything."
