Pairing: Dean x deaf!Reader, Sam
Word count: 642
Request: @littlehotmess26 Thank you! I was wanting something with Dean and Reader. Where the reader is deaf and a hunter. Dean asks Sam to teach him sign language so he can talk her better. Lots of fluff. Please :)
A/N: I looked up the couple signs on google, as the app that I looked up is Apple only. -_- I planned to use more, but they were difficult to describe lol. I hope this is okay
It was rare that Dean was flustered by a woman, but you made it feel like he was blushing all the way up to his ears. He’d met you through hunting, and couldn’t get you off his mind. Now and then, you’d text, but nothing too much. A question about a case here, checking in there. Dean would have loved to text with you more, but was afraid of making an ass of himself. So, he left things as they were.
Dean had stayed back while Sam went to help you on a case. Sam saw how his brother looked at you, and the last thing he wanted was someone distracted. He was currently eating a burger, and enjoying a beer. “Dean!” Sam’s voice carried through the halls. “Dean!” He sounded panicked.
Getting up, Dean rushed towards Sam, and saw him carrying you. “What the hell?” He motioned to your leg. “You’re supposed to gank the monster, not her damn leg.”
Giving Dean a dirty look, he sighed. “Can you just get the first aid kit? I stitched her up at the motel, but I think it pulled, or it’s infected.” He sounded worried as he moved around Dean, towards a spare room.
When he heard that, Dean’s stomach dropped. Cas had been flaky lately, so he couldn’t even rely on him. Turning, he took off towards the bathroom to grab the first aid kit. He hoped that you’d be okay.
You were resting in a spare room, leg cleaned, and bandaged. The two Winchester men were sitting in the library, quietly sipping their beers. Finishing his, Dean licked his lips and looked up at Sam. “Teach me sign language.” He said quietly.
“Wait, what?” His eyebrows went up, a confused look on his face. “You want me to teach you sign language?”
Dean rolled his eyes. “You’re cheaper than an app.” He shot back. “Will you teach me, or not?”
Sam chuckled. “Sure, Dean.” He nodded. “Surprised you’re doing this for a girl. Normally all you do is buy them a two for one jello shot.” He smirked, teasing him. “Or maybe you’ll splurge a bit and get her a mixed drink.”
“You’re an ass.” Dean chuckled, getting up. “When do you wanna do this?”
“How about now? I can teach you a couple things for when she wakes up.” He offered, watching his brother’s face soften before he sat back down.
They took turns checking on you, making sure you weren’t getting a fever or anything. One of the times Dean went to check on you, you stirred awake. You gave him a soft smile, and were surprised when he signed ‘how are you?’. He put his knuckles together, turned his hands until they were upside down, and pointed to her.
It took her a moment to register that, as he’d never signed with her before. Smiling, you signed by putting your thumb on your chin, fist out, and turning your fist in.
“Sore, Dean. She’s sore.” Sam’s voice made him jump. He turned, seeing his brother leaning on the doorframe. “Figured I’d come save the day if she confused you. Don’t want to overwhelm you too soon.” He chuckled, his hazel eyes went to you, and you could see the amusement in them.
That’s how it went for a few days, or Dean would look bashful before texting you that he was unsure of a sign, or just didn’t know it. More and more, Sam found the two of you together, both grinning, and signing or texting.
At first, Sam was surprised how quickly Dean caught on, but the more he watched, he understood why. He’d been teasing Dean about liking you, now he was seeing more. Dean was putting more effort into being near you than he’d ever seen him do with anyone else.
