Cas and Dean spent the most part of the day wandering around the forest, Dean showing Cas really pretty and fairy-tale like areas he’d never seen before. Cas was amazed by the beauty of the forest, while Dean was in awe of Cas. Seeing the smile on Cas’ face became contagious as Dean found himself smiling, tail wagging softly behind him. After spending a good hour by a small waterfall and another weaving through trees that bristled in the gentle wind, the two found themselves a clearing and sat down, close to each other. Cas pulling out some sandwiches from his basket, passing one to Dean, who was quick to scoff it, and took a bite of his own. The pair laughed and talked through sunset and only after a while did they realise it was beginning to get dark. Cas shuffled uncomfortably, not used to being this deep into the forests, let alone at nighttime, and scooted a little closer to Dean. After hearing a low, growl like sound Cas first thought that it was Dean who had made the sound. His face dropped a little bit, a confused expression sweeping over his features as he scooted away again, wondering if it was that to have caused the growl.
“Sorry, that was an invasion of your personal space, right?” Cas guessed, looking up to a very alert Dean.
“Uh. That wasn’t- Cas!” Dean yelled as he leapt to his feet, spotting a bigger and badder wolf than himself approach the boy, just latching it’s paw onto Cas’ cloak as Dean had yelled.
Dean grabbed Cas and yanked him up with quite a big force, the cloak falling off as Cas stumbled behind Dean.
“Cas, do me a favour and hide behind that tree and.. Don’t look for a minute.” Dean said and Cas nodded quickly, rushing behind it, leaning his back on the bark as his chest heaved.
Pained yelling came from Dean and even though Cas wanted to run to his side and check he was okay, he trusted Dean and Dean said not to look. He had to kept repeating that it was okay to himself as the yelling continued for a few minutes before it faded away. Then Cas slowly peeked his head around the tree, his eyes widening at the sight. Dean was… Huge. And a fully blown wolf. His legs were about twice as big as Cas who was now tiny compared to Dean, and the massive wolf made the ground almost shake as it took a step towards the now puny looking wolf that had once looked threatening. Well, at least now Cas knew why his title was “big bad wolf”. With one, low warning growl which made Cas cover his ears the wolf was sprinting away, realising it was no match at all to go against Dean and Cas was timidly and cautiously stepping around to the front of Dean.
Once he reached the front of the wolf his head leant down, the big green eyes staring down at him with a gentle gaze. Cas offered a little smile, as a shiver ran down his arms. He glanced around the flood and spotted his cloak, swiping it up and placing it back around himself. Facing back to Dean, Cas slowly reached out his hands and placed them on Dean’s nose, which was alone bigger than his handspan.
“Wow,” Cas breathed out finally.
Dean didn’t respond but from his expression Cas could guess if he was currently human, he’d be smiling. Probably proudly.
“Thank you, Dean.” Cas said gently, looking up into his eyes before leaning forewords and placing a light kiss on his nose.
Dean just slightly nudged his nose forward to show his affection before stepping back and laying down carefully, keeping an eye on Cas as he did. Slowly motioning next to him with his nose Cas took the hint and lay down with him, more than happily accepting the body heat Dean was emitting. Cas curled up slightly, pulling his cloak around himself for a makeshift blanket, taking another look up at Dean. He was maybe slightly in disbelief at how amazing Dean looked in his true form, but he was still super grateful that he managed to save him.
Despite being happy curled up to Dean like this, he was awaiting the moment to wake up next to him in his human form so he could give him a proper thank you kiss.
