“Look - we want to gank this Abaddon bitch, right?” Dean arched an eyebrow in askance, looking over and you and Sam with clear annoyance lacing his tone at the both of your persistence to be hesitant about the plan.
When the two of you nodded your heads slightly, he rolled his eyes and added, “Great, and this is the only way in which we can do that, so we stick to the plan. Crowley will hand Abaddon over to us, more specifically - me, and they’re in that very building,” He jerked his head to the side, referring to the 5-star hotel that stood tall next to the three of you.
“But, Dean, the mark-” You started, worried for the outcome of this so-called ‘well thought out’ plan that Dean had conjured, but, your excuse was severed short by Dean’s hand reaching out for yours as he gently tugged you away from Sam and closer to himself.
“I know, (Y/N/N). But this is our only option, okay? I gotta do this. You have to trust me,” He let out in quiet mumbles, his deep green eyes that you loved so much peering down into yours as his thumb gently ran back and forth across your knuckles.
You hesitated for a moment, still uneasy about letting him go through with this. However, you knew that he was right, you were defeatedly running out of options on how to kill the Knight of Hell who so desperately wanted to begin her crusade to take over and rule Hell and Earth.
Eventually, you looked up at him with loving, (y/e/c) eyes and let a quiet sigh escape. “Okay, I trust you,” Your whispered words brought out a small twinkle in his eyes and a smile playing at the corner of his lips as you sent him a little shrug of your shoulders.
“Thankyou,” He pressed his lips to yours softly in a short but sweet and lingering kiss, his hand coming up to lightly cup your jaw and a wave of heat blossomed over the apples of your cheeks, settling you aglow due to the gentle PDA that he so rarely showed.
He pulled away slowly, his eyes casting over at Sam - catching his younger brother’s attention as he spoke up, “Crowley mentioned that he saw some demons head into the basement for whatever reason so (Y/N), you and Sam go check that out. I’ll take the main floor.” Then, he grabbed the First Blade which was currently wrapped in a thin, brown cloth from the Impala before turning on his heels to face you once more.
“Be safe,” He mumbled, pecking your lips gently one last time before he took his entrance through the hotel doors.
You glanced over at Sam, your features clearly showing your apprehension and concern but your legs carried you towards him, nevertheless. “Let’s just get this over with,” You let out in mutters, sending him a tight-lipped smile before pushing open the glass doors and trundling casually down the corridors with your best friend, unwillingly searching for the basement.
“Nothing out of the ordinary, no traps, no signs of struggle, no traces of sulphur - nada,” You let out a huff in exasperation after checking over every inch of the dusty room three times consecutively; your mind reeled with confusion as you wondered why Crowley had told Dean that he saw demons venture down into the basement when there clearly hadn’t been any in this vicinity.
“But…” Sam’s voice trailed off as his eyes darted over the basement once more, his eyebrows furrowed quizzically until eventually, he seemed to connect all the dots in his head and he spun to face you quickly.
Sharing instant worried looks with Sam’s hazel eyes through the darkness of the desolate basement, you knew that you had both been struck with harsh realisation that Dean had lied to the two of you about his conversation with the King of Hell and if that was the case, he was probably doing something regrettable and rash at that very moment.
“Crap,” You cursed and the two of you pivoted rapidly on your heels and turned to the stairs, your feet taking every other step until you reached the top with Sam hot on your trail. You flung the door open and rushed into the lobby, not perceiving the odd looks that were thrown your own as you ran to the stairs, knowing that there would be no time for the elevator.
