Word Count: 319 (Once again, very short, I apologize)
Authors Note: Yes, I realize its very short but I’m starting to go through writers block UGH so it’s better than nothing!
You were on a case with Dean Winchester, a man you’ve known for years; but until only recently, you were just friends. After months of thinking, you finally decided that just wasn’t enough for the two of you; you needed someone to love, and he did to. As you’d walk around stores with him, he would often gently take your hand, and it meant the world to you. Sometimes he’d give you a quick peck on the lips or he’d wrap his arm around you while the two of you binge-watched Making a Murderer. To him, these were big steps; he’d never liked a woman as much as he loved you.
You’d never exchanged those three special words, and you never expected him to. He wouldn’t even say them to his brother. And you were okay with not having to say those words, because, it’s sad to admit, but you were scared. You’ve done so many horrifying things before, but those simple words scared you the most.
But today was different… you weren’t scared anymore. You really, really wanted to say it; so you went for it. You sat down at the table in the diner and stared at him, shaking slightly from the anxiety.. maybe you were scared after all. He looked up from his plate, a normal burger and fries on it (like any other day) and smiled small, “You look beautiful,” he said simply. You blushed, looking down at your hands. He pushed his plate toward you, “Want a bite-” but you interrupted him before he could finish his sentence, “I think I’m in love with you,” you said quickly.
He chuckled and looked down for a moment before back to your face, “I know.” Your eyes widened, ‘he knows?’ you thought. “You talk a lot in your sleep” he smirked. Instantly, you stared at the table, completely embarrassed.
“Don’t worry, (Y/N), I love you too.”
