A/N: beta’d by the ever amazing @just-another-busy-fangirl. Laura, I don’t know what I would do without you and I hope I never have to find out! I listened to and channeled some Louden Swain for this. Although it is not inspired by ‘She Waits’ it felt like a fitting title. A huge shout out to @zeppo-in-a-trenchcoat and @mandileaphotography for the amazing photos of Rob. Thank you for feeding my soul. Also, all my love to Nicole, @iwantthedean, for her never ending support and for enabling the crisis.
Written for: @d-s-winchester and her 2 Year Blogiversary Challenge. My prompt is in bold below. Ash specifically asked for Rob, and tbh, who I am I to say no! I just adore him so much!

To say you and Rob Benedict had a complicated history was an understatement. Some days it felt like Goldie and Kurt, then other days it felt more like Whitney and Bobby. It was wonderful and it was tumultuous, but it was always passionate.
You had first met Rob on the set of Supernatural in 2009. He played a prophet and was slated to appear a few times and you were nothing but an extra. But the reaction between the two of you was a Chem professor’s dream. It was palpable from the first greeting. As you were doing a series of guest spots for the CW, you were in Vancouver for a few weeks which allowed you and Rob get to know each other. You spent all of your spare time in his room or yours. Passion was never the problem.
But then he left and you felt like you would fall apart. He had promised you a future. You felt foolish for believing him, but felt it in your heart, even if your head was screaming ‘NO’ at a thousand decibels. You retreated into yourself when you didn’t hear from him for almost two months.
You found yourself in Los Angeles to audition for a new series. You wanted to call Rob, just to hear his voice. It was one of the things you loved about him, one of the many. His voice was always so soothing and calming to you after a rough day. When he sang to you, it gave you life and you felt like you could accomplish anything and overcome any obstacle in your path.
