Castiel got out of the car. It was so hot. He lifted his hat with one hand and with the other he grabbed a paper he had in his pocket and dried the sweat in his forehead. He sighed.
There were rumors that this new bakery was a gift from heaven for everyone who liked those kind of treats. He wasn’t really a fan, but his partner had insisted and he had lost at rock-paper-scissors so here he was, crossing the road to enter Mary’s Bakery.
The bell rang as he got inside. The counter was filled with donuts, croissants, pies… He had to admit everything there looked amazingly good, it smelled great too.
“I’m coming” He heard someone say from inside the store. “Sorry, it’s been kinda busy.”
A man appeared at the other side of the counter. He was more or less his height, blond, beautiful green eyes, freckles… Maybe the treats weren’t the only interesting thing in this bakery…
“Hello officer” Said the baker grinning at him. “What’s gonna be?”
“Umm” Castiel didn’t really know, what would make his partner shut up for a while… “I don’t really know. Surprise me, I guess…” He smiled politely.
The man made a soldier-like salute and went inside. He reappeared moments later with a box. “I’ve just made this. I hope you like them.”
“Thanks” He grabbed the box. “How much it is?”
“This one’s on the house officer.”
“My name’s Castiel” He smiled, it seemed impossible not to.
“Castiel huh? Angel of thursdays, interesting…” He didn’t know what to do, be impressed because this man knew about his name, or melt because he was giving him a smirk. “My name’s Dean by the way.”
‘Dean’, Castiel thought, ‘I like Dean’. “Nice to meet you Dean”.
Once he was in the patrol car his partner inquired him. “Damn, it took you long enough.”
“Sorry Charlie” He sighed and gave the treats to her, who put them on her lap.
“What have you bought.”
“I don’t know, it’s a surprise.”
Charlie send him a look he didn’t want to decipher. “O-kay, let’s see.” When she opened the box a sweet aroma filled the car “Oh. My. God. This smells amazing.” Castiel thought so too. Inside a few cream croissants were disposed in perfect order. Charlie grabbed one of them and took a bite. She moaned. “This are delicious.” She said with a full mouth.
Castiel chuckled and grabbed one, and when he started eating it he could not refrain a moan himself.
Three days later Castiel was once again in front of the bakery, This time he didn’t really mind to be the one in charge of buying.
Dean was cleaning the counter when he opened the door.
“Hi Cas” Dean greeted him with a wide smile.
“Hello Dean” He smiled at the baker too.
“What’s gonna be today? Surprise?”
“Yes” Cas nodded. “Your last surprise was very satisfactory.”
Dean chuckled. ‘Oh dear lord’, Castiel thought, he was irremediable enamored with that man. The baker disappeared once again inside the kitchen and reappeared, once again, with a box in his hands.
“Here you are, on the house officer” Dean winked. Cas blushed.
“Oh, umm, thank you Dean.” He cleared his throat. “Bye”
The exchange was repeated for weeks. Cas and Dean entered in a routine without realizing.
“You got it bad man” Said Charlie once, when they got out to a bar one day.
Yes, he got it bad.
Castiel opened the Mary’s Bakery door and the bell made a familiar sound. But the man who was in the counter was not so familiar.
“Hello Sir”. This man was shorter than Dean, he had brown hair and a very strange accent, maybe french.
“What will it be?”
Castiel frowned. All this time it was Dean who choose for him. “I don’t really know.”
“You must be Dean’s Cas, aren’t ya?” It couldn’t be true, he must have misheard him. ‘Dean’s Cas’.
“Yeah, I guess I am.” He smiled shyly.
The man nodded. “Wait a minute.”
Castiel frowned but still waited.
Dean emerged from the kitchen, all covered in flour. “Oh, hey Cas, it’s time already?” He asked. Had been Dean paying attention at the time he usually visited the bakery?
“Yes, it’s time.” Castiel answered smiling.
Dean grinned at him and grabbed a box from the counter giving it to him. “Hope you like it officer.”
“Thank you Dean.”
Cas gave the box to Charlie when he reached the car.
“Aaaw” Said his partner.
When he was seated he asked “What’s the matter?” Charlie simply put the box on his lap. There was a phone number written on it followed by a ‘Call me?’.
Cas couldn’t smile wider. Dean made him heart-shaped chocolate cookies.
