BEAR WITH ME I’M ON MOBILE AT WORK
27: “I’m pregnant. “
“I’m pregnant,” Dean says casually.
He chances a glance over at Castiel and sure enough, the older man is still engulfed in his textbook, eyes skimming the pages and lips moving slightly as he mouths the words he reads. Dean has been talking for the past ten minutes, only just realizing it’s been a one sided conversation.
“Doctor says it’s twins,” he continues, looking down at the pile of books in front of him. They’ve been studying for two hours. Two. Dean’s tired, he’s bored, and he wants his boyfriend to pay attention to him, damn it.
“I also had sex with Gabriel,” he tries again, looking up hopefully.
Nothing. Not even a hint of acknowledgment.
Dean sighs, grabbing one of Cas’ literature books and lifting it up. Edgar Allen Poe is staring back at him. “What do you think, Edgar? What are the chances they’re not Cas’ babies?” he asks.
He tilts the book to the side and nods in consideration, “Yeah, you’re right. Maybe we won’t be able to tell? They are brothers, after all-“
Dean gasps dramatically and pulls the book towards his face, “Edgar, is that you? Speak to me Edgar-“
“Wait! Wait Edgar, I think,” Dean peeks over the book and his eyes lock with his boyfriend’s unamused face, “Yes, Edgar look!” Dean turns the book around so it’s facing Castiel, “It’s Cas!”
Castiel looks at the book and then to Dean, “What are you doing?” he asks in a bored voice.
“I’m talking to the only thing that will listen to me.” Dean says, sitting the book down on the table and putting a hand over it, definitely not pouting.
Castiel sighs, “Dean, you know how important this exam is. If I even-“
Dean holds up a finger to cut him off. He turns the finger around to point at his own chest, “Boyfriend,” he says, “Boyfriend is important too.”
Castiel sighs again, but there’s a small smile crossing his lips, “You’re needy, you know that?”
“I’m neglected,” Dean argues.
Castiel laughs, but it’s cut short. He looks back at Dean, tilting his head and squinting, “What’s this I hear about you and Gabriel?” he asks.
It’s Dean’s turn to laugh.
