AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OOOOOOOOH MYYYYYYYY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDD I JUST- I LOVE HIS OUTFIT????? HE LOOKS SO DAMN GOOD IN IT HOLY CRAP I NEED TO SCREAM MORE!!!!!!!!!?????????
Beekeeper Cas sells honey at a sort of farmers market or something, at weekends maybe (guess who has no clue how that stuff works) and Dean is dragged there by Sam and…
And he can’t get over the cute blue eyed beekeeper in the ‘ugly’, adorable sweater. And soon it is Dean who is dragging Sam along to see Cas and… and they become friends. And exchange numbers.
But they meet for coffee and Dean buys Cas lots of adorable stuff with bees and bee puns like t-shirt that say “🐝 happy” and says things like “When a bee is in your hand, what’s in your eye? Beauty. Because beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder.” and compliments Cas which gets him all shy and blushy and Cas bakes Dean pie and they love the same books and cartoons and they’re HAPPY.
So when one day, Dean doesn’t find Cas’ stall anywhere, he is worried as heck and texts, and then calls him. Turns out Cas isn’t too well.
An hour later, Dean’s at his doorstep, with soup and comfort food and and a cute mug that says “Vitamin Bee” and has two happy bees frolicking on it.
And Cas just squints at him, blue eyes bleary amd droopy and dark circles under his eyes. He looks actually relieved when he sees Dean, and somehow guilty too. And utterly pathetic.
And Dean tells him he really can’t be trusted to take care of himself, which is why Dean is here. And Dean heats soup while Cas lies on the sofa, talking to him, telling him about the crazy things that happened in his day and then they drink soup and cuddle and watch a movie, well Dean watches the movie. Cas just leans into Dean and enjoys the feeling of Dean’s fingers stroking his hair and the slow rise and fall of his chest as he breathes and when laughs. Cas doesn’t even realise when he falls asleep.
Dean wakes him up a while later and guides a still disoriented Cas to his room, neater than he’d left it, Cas will realise only later, and tucks him in.
He’s a really kind and attentive friend all weekend, nursing Cas throughout, reading to him, cooking for him, cuddling and petting him and being so caring and patient.
Cas keeps thanking him over and over but Dean just smiles softly at him and brushes his thumb against Cas’ cheek or ruffles his hair or squeezes him tighter and asks him what else best friends are for.
And Cas, under the influence of cough drops and cold meds and half asleep is utterly adorable. And, as Dean hands Cas his tea- and honey, and Cas smiles at him, red nose crinkled, eyes watery and scrunched and just a hint of gums, it hits Dean with such force he almost drops the cup.
He’s in love with Cas.
He’s fallen in love with the shy, dorky, adorable beekeeper. Which is rather fortunate because right at that moment, Cas is thinking about how he loves Dean so very very much.
Still takes them another couple of weeks to admit it, somehow. But it’s so worth the wait.
