He couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw her. It was her, it was really and truly her. Almost a decade had gone by since he last laid eyes on her and she looked as beautiful as ever.
She was Y/N. His Y/N.
He swallowed hard. She was definitely going to see him, she was the only waitress on the clock by the looks of things. She would have to come over and take their order. What was he going to say to her after almost ten years of being gone? Would she understand that he left to protect her? Would she still hate him as much as he hated himself for leaving her behind? She was the best part of him. She made him happy.
“Welcome to Julia’s, what can I get for you- wait, Dean?” her voice cracked. He could hear her breathing hitch the second she laid eyes on him. He smiled softly. Her eyes were as bright as he remember.
“Hey, sweetheart,” he breathed out. “’s been awhile.”
“Yeah,” she whispered. “awhile indeed. What can I get for you and your friend?”
“Coffee, and a bacon cheese burger for me and for my brother, Sam,” he paused.
“I’ll take a coffee and your garden salad,” Sam stated, smiling awkwardly. Dean knew he was wondering what was going on.
“Y/N, will you sit with us?” Dean asked kindly.
“I’ve gotta work, Dean.”
“Take a break, join us.”
“Okay, but only because it will wipe that goofy looking grin off your face, Winchester,” she giggled. “You look good, Dean.”
“Not as good as you look, sweetheart.”
“Yes, but not all of us age like fine wine,” she laughed.
“Alright, that is my cue to get out of here. You two clearly have history and need some time to catch up so I will be back at the motel,” Sam stood up, shaking his head with the widest smile on his face.
“So Y/N, what time do you get off?” he asked nervously.
“I get off whenever you-”
“Whoa, okay,” he laughed. “I mean work. I guess I’ve got a lot of explaining to do before I get you off.”
“You haven’t changed a bit, Dean Winchester,” she smile genuinely. “I can meet you out back in fifteen.”
“I’ll pull the impala around,” he stated.
“Oh and Dean!” she called out. “I missed you!”
