It was another sleepless night for you and the only sound in the dark motel room was ticking of a little clock. Nights like these were the worst, the ones in which you would toss and turn in your bed, but despite being exausted from a long day, you could for some reason never fall asleep.
You picked up your phone to check what time it was. It was 2 am. You threw your phone across the room, at this point not caring about the sound that you assumed was the screen of your phone breaking.
As you were lying there on your back, staring at complete darkness, sudden flash of light got your attention.The light was coming from the hallway and was peeking trough a crack of your not completely closed doors.
You noticed a figure walk by, going towards the doors that lead outside, and even though you were sure it was either Sam or Dean you picked up a handgun that you were keeping under your pillow just in case, and decided to check on this misterious person.
Just as you opened your door someone was standing right in front of you, making you back off in surprisement. Using this moment of weakness the person snatched the handgun from you grabbing you by your wrist.
“Let me go” you screamed out trying to get out of this person’s tight grip.
“Whoa hey calm down”
“Dean?” You finally stopped struggling and he finally let you out of his grip. Dean reached over to the light switch pressing it carefully.
“Hey (Y/N) are you okay?” Dean smiled at you “Why are you not sleeping?“
He pulled up the zipper of his jacket obviously planning to go outside.
“Well i don’t know, maybe because someone keeps walking down the hallway back and forth at 2 am” you huffed at him “Where the hell are you going?”
“I cant sleep so i thought about taking baby for a drive” he said “Sorry for waking you up” he turned around going towards the door.
“Hey” you quickly grabbed the end of his jacket, making him turn around giving you a confused look “Can i come with you?” you asked
“I thought you wanted to sleep” Dean smiled looking at you with curiosity.
“Well i lied, i have not been able to fall asleep for hours now” you said. “So?” You asked again “Can i come?”
He looked at you for a moment “Alright, you can come, but get a jacket or something, its pretty chilly outside”
“Its summer Dean, how chilly can it be?” You didn’t want to change your clothes if you will have to get in your pijamas again anyways, so you decided to ignore his advice.
“Mkay, but i won’t be giving you my jacket once you freeze your ass off” he said jokingly.
As soon as you left the motel you could understand why he was telling you to get a jacket. Even on this summer night, the weather was drastically different than what you have been used to, cold wind gave you chills but you droped the idea about getting a jacket once again.
You followed Dean as he was walking towards the impala, shaking slightly but trying not to show that you were cold. After he finally unlocked the doors, you sighed happily sitting in the warm seat of the old but magnificent car. You could understand why Dean loved this car so much. It was like a home that he never had. No matter what happened, no matter where he went, he knew that he could always return to this car, blast some loud rock music and continue with life.
As the 2 years you have spent with the Winchesters slowly passed, you were getting more and more attached to this car. And now once again you were appreciating the warmth and the comfort of it.
“Buckle up gorgeous” he said as he was getting the engine on. You did as he said.
The inside of the impala smelled like a mix of leather, liquor and Deans perfume which was the smell that gave you comfort and the smell you could never get enough of.
You had a thing for Dean, and that was really not a secret, or at least you thought so. Sam knew, for sure. He would sometimes make comments about the way you looked at Dean, and most of the times would get a ‘shut up’ from either Dean himself or you.
You were sure Dean knew too, he notices the way you look at him, and from time to time you could swear on your life he was looking at you in the same way. He would also give you nicknames like ‘cutie’ ; ‘beautiful’ ; ‘gorgeous’, and you would call him ‘handsome’ but he never made a move on you, not directly at least, so you just assumed that he liked you as a friend
He cared about you, there was no doubt about that, but it was hard to figure out if he cared about you like a brother cares about his little sister, or if there was something more than that. You never really tried to figure it out though, you enjoyed Dean’s company and you didn’t want to ruin everything by telling him that you love him straight into his face, if you weren’t sure he felt the same way.
Dean was driving in silence, which was a little bit unlikely for him. He would usually turn on the radio and sing to the old clasics, but he seemed different tonight.
“Hey Deano” you stretched your arms out waiting for an answer. “Hey (Y/N)” he imitated you flashing you a quick smile. You laughed at his imitation.
“Are you okay?” You asked after finally stopping the laughter.
“Yeah, why would i not be?”
“I don’t know, you just seem different” you answered honestly.
Dean looked at you for a moment,looking back at the road imediately. He let out a sigh before finally answering
“I feel good” he said “Im glad you came with me”.
You felt your cheeks getting red and you chuckled at your own reaction to his words.
“What’s so funny?”
“Nothing, im just really glad i came with you too” he flashed you a smile once more and you could swear on your life that he gave you the lovey dovey look you always give to him.
“Okay then im gonna try to fall asleep now” you said, Dean nodding in aproval.
You were driving in silence for a while, the whole time you couldn’t keep your eyes off of him. With an excuse of trying to sleep you had a chance to count his freckles and look at him breathe from so up close, and that was a chance you would never let go to waste. Dean sudenly moved his gaze from the road looking straight into your eyes.
You didn’t want him to catch you staring so you closed your eyes pretending to be asleep.
“I saw that” he laughed at loud “You know, you staring at me”.
Your face got that red color again and Dean noticed that too. “Are you blushing?”
“Hey are you hungry maybe? I am hungry.”
‘He thankfully changed the subject’ you thought to yourself.
“Honestly yeah, i kinda am”
Your eyes were getting more and more tired and you were slowly drifting away as Dean was driving to the nearest take out restourant.
When you finally opened your eyes after what you thought was couple seconds, Dean was still driving.
“Are we close?”
Dean jumped a bit, breathing heavily “You scared the crap out of me i thought you were asleep.”
“What? Im not asleep but i am hungry.” You said.
“You have a burger and fries in that bag over there and i bought couple bottles of beer if you are thirsty” he pointed at the bag on the back seat.
“When did you get this? I had my eyes closed for like 5 seconds” you gave him a confused look.
“5 seconds? Try half an hour” he answered
“What? Where are we going Dean?”
“To the motel”
“I mean not yet, now im even less sleepy then i was”
“Mkay, what do you wanna do?” He asked
“Stars are pretty tonight” you said flashing him a smile
“Okay? And?” he gave you a confused look
“You remember that night, two years ago, when you and Sam saved my ass from that ghoul i was hunting?”
“The night we met?” He asked
“Yes” you answered “Do you remember how we wraped up the night?”
“Um i think so? We drank beer?“ Dean guessed
“Yes Dean, we drank beer siting on the hood of impala”
“You want to relieve the memories?” He asked smiling at you.
“Yeah, i mean if you want to” you added quickly
“I’d love that”
Dean drove for a couple more minutes before pulling over to a grass field near the road.
“Whoa, this looks awesome” you whispered “Where the hell are we?”
“Not that far away from the motel actually” Dean answered.
You both got out of the car you handing him the bottle of beer and keeping one for yourself. Dean climbed and sat at the front part of the impala.
You were a bit shorter than Dean and climbing the impala was not as easy. Just when you jumped up, your hand slipped and you ended up with your ass on the grass.
“Fuck” you groaned in anoyance, trying to get up.
“Oh shit (Y/N) are you okay?” Dean asked helping you get up.
“Peachy.” You said trying to clean off the dirt from your pijamas.
Dean helped you get on the hood of impala and he sat next to you, opening your beer.
“Here” he handed you the bottle.
For a while both of you were just sitting there,siping the beer and looking at the sky.
The sky was really astonishing, you could see all the stars perfectly.
Everything was perfect. You felt like you could just fall asleep, here next to Dean, next to person you loved, and you were sleepy, but you couldn’t take your eyes off of him and you sure as hell didn’t want to. He caught you staring at him once more and he smiled at you.
“You know (Y/N) i was thinking”
Dean started suddenly
“The truth is i was thinking about this one thing for a very long time”
You had a feeling you knew where this was going but you just sat there hoping that you were right.
“I have no idea how the hell to tell you this-”
“I love you Dean” you saidFor a moment he was silent. He looked at you with a confused look on his face, and you imediately regreted saying anything. You could feel tears form in your eyes, until he finally answered.
“I know” he smiled at you “And i love you too”
Before you could have said anything else he pulled you into a kiss. He cupped your face with his hands kissing your lips softly.
You were sitting there, on the top of impala making out with Dean Winchester.
You were repeating those words in your head while your heart was beating faster than ever.
Minutes have passed. Was it minutes? You weren’t entierly sure. Every now and then he would give you another soft kiss and pull away with an adorable look on his face. It was a nice reminder that what was happening was really happening.
After he finally pulled away he took his jacket off putting it over your shoulders. Again you were just sitting there in silence, your head on Deans shoulder until you finally drifted away.
When you woke up in the morning, you were in your bed in the motel.
Scared that everything was just a dream, you jumped out of the bed. You had to see Dean, you had to know if last night happened and just as you were rushingly running towards his room, you ran into someone once again.
“Hey (Y/N)” he whispered before leaving a small kiss on your lips.
“Are you okay?” He asked noticing your reaction to his kiss “Morning breath huh? I was just on my way to brush my teeth just so you kn-” before he could finish, you hugged him tightly.
“I love you” you whispered
“I love you too” he smiled at you leaving a kiss on your forehead.
