A/N: This is written as a continuation of New Discoveries. This is the tie-in to a series. If you have not read that fic yet, go read it first or start reading under the cut. This is for @frenchybell ‘s 500 Follower Celebration. Happy Birthday, girl! My prompt is “Did I just hear you correctly?” and I was given the gif that is below the cut to use.

You try really hard to not treat the boys any differently now that you know the truth, but after finding out what they are like behind closed doors; it is impossible for things between you not to change.
Now you know that Sam isn’t just this sweet, adorable guy that you see on a daily basis. He has a dark side that he keeps hidden from you. You try to forget, try to ignore it. But every time you think you have forgotten, you catch a look on his face that reminds you of how dark Sam can be. His eyes darken for a moment and his face becomes very serious, reminding you how much in control he truly desires to be. To say the least, it makes you uneasy. You are both turned on and terrified by the man hidden from the world.
You have found yourself avoiding interaction with him as much as possible. Your conversations have become very short, clipped and business oriented. You used to talk to Sam about everything and you are positive that he has noticed the change, but for some reason is choosing to not address it with you. In all honesty, you are glad he is being so cooperative about your shift in interactions. You aren’t positive which Sam you would be confronted with if he ever did bring it up and aren’t sure you want to find out.
Dean is a completely different side of the coin. Knowing that underneath Dean’s hard, egocentric exterior lies a soft, gentle heart, makes it hard to stay truly mad at him for anything. Honestly, it makes it difficult for you to dislike him at all. Your walls are coming down around him and it is happening at an alarming pace. You find yourself playfully bantering with him instead of arguing. Just the other day, you actually laughed at his jokes and even played along with his pranks on Sam. More than once you have realized, after the fact, that you weren’t just being friendly with Dean, you were being outright flirtatious. You hope that Dean hasn’t noticed this, but if you are truthful with yourself, you know that he has.
Then, there is what happened just fifteen minutes ago.
