Chapter Sneak Peek:
Castiel anxiously fiddles with the clasp of the leather notebook between his hands. He uneasily bounces his knee up and down, his ankle occasionally hitting the bench. He knows that he is displaying typical human signs of anxiety; when he’s unable to use his weak grace to stop the emotion, he tries not to be disappointed.
“Are you sure this is a good idea?” Anna asks beside him, looking no less nervous than he feels.
“No.” Rubbing sweaty palms against the rough denim of his jeans, he admits, “But I have no other ideas.”
“You’re not going to—“ With a hesitant glance around the empty hallway, Anna hushes her voice to a whisper. “You’re not going to tell her about your feelings for Dean, are you?”
“You can’t possibly think I’m that stupid.”
She throws exasperated hands into the air. “I don’t know, Castiel, you’ve been stupider in the past!”
The door to their left opens, and a grey-suited angel pops his head out of the office. “Naomi’s ready to see you now.”
Castiel rises. Anna’s urgent grip on his wrist stops him. “I’ll be fine,” he says with a false smile down at her worried eyes.
“Just promise me that you won’t do what you normally do,” she says.
“Piss her off.”
