While the Winchesters were away, Castiel would often come to the bunker to check on you. He knew how much you hated being alone in the bunker. The angel put time aside to come see you, even if it was only for a few minutes. He knew how much of a difference it made.
When he came into your room, he could hear you crying. He approached your bed slowly so he wouldn’t startle you. “[Y/N], what’s wrong,” Castiel asked.
“Cas, I made a big mistake,” you sobbed as you got up from your bed. You turned around, a broken CD in your hands. “I broke Dean’s favorite Metallica CD. He’s going to kill me. This isn’t like any other mistake I’ve made. They’re gonna be back in five minutes and I don’t know what to do.”
Castiel thought for a few seconds. The two of you spun around on your feet when you heard Dean shouting from down the hall. The Winchesters were back earlier than expected. Without thinking, Castiel yanked the broken CD from your hands.
“Cas, what are you doing,” you asked in a wispy voice, your eyes growing wide. “I can’t let you take the fall for this!”
Dean pushed the door open, holding a bag in the air. “I brought you the chips you-,” Dean’s words were cut short when he saw the CD in the angel’s hands. “Cas, is that my Metallica CD?” His smile quickly faded as he dropped the bag at his feet.
“I wasn’t sure what to do with it and I accidentally broke it,” Castiel falsely confessed. “I’ve never handled one before. I’ve only had experience with your cassette tapes. I’m sorry about breaking it.”
Dean sighed heavily as he took the CD from the angel’s hands. “This was my favorite CD,” Dean mumbled, disappointment heavy in his tone. “I guess I have to do some online shopping.”
When Dean left the room, you threw your arms around the angel and thanked him a million times. Cas knew that Dean would take it easier on him than he would you. He didn’t mind taking the fall for a broken CD.
