“Hey (y/n), you want one of your stupid fruity drinks or a beer?” Dean called from the boardwalk as you lounged in your lawn chair in the sand. You sent him a flat glare along with an answer.
“A beers fine!” You turned back to the book in your hand. “Winchester….” The sound of the waves crashing onto the shore and children laughing happily filled your ears, in turn spreading a smile to your face.
“Beer my lady.” Dean plopped down in the chair next to you. You took your beer from his hand and put it in your cup holder. He dropped his sunglasses from the top of his head over his eyes. He took a sip of his beer.
“You know how long it’s been since I’ve been to a beach?” You humored him.
“How long?” He let out a curt laugh.
“Never. That’s how long.” He turned his head toward you. “I’m glad it’s with you, (y/n).” You blushed at Deans kind words.
“Yeah, it is nice. To bad Sam’s not here too.” Dean shrugged.
“Hey he’s the one that wanted to go see some historical landmarks instead.” You ran a hand through your hair as a small breeze picked up.
“Not that I don’t love my history and shit but…if it’s between that and the beach. Give me the damn beach any day.” Dean nodded. You opened your beer with a hiss before taking a long sip, letting the taste wash across your mouth and down your throat. Dean leaned down and grabbed a handful of sand just to let it run through his fingers. His eyes seemed dewy.
“We…need to come to the beach more often.”
This is my homage to the original benders (during the Era of the Avatar, of course since during the Era of Raava people would request bending abilities from the lion turtles). I always loved the fact that people learned bending from animals, since I know first-hand how much people can learn from observing animals. This is a project I’ve wanted to do for so long and is hopefully the first of many!
