AU where sleep-deprived college student Dean tried to pull an all-nighter in campus library and accidentally dropped his student ID card when he went to buy his 10th cup of coffee of the day. Cas found the card after Dean’s gone and posted the picture of the card on their college’s “lost and found” facebook group.
Sam saw the post Cas posted and tagged Dean in, so Dean contacted Cas and arranged the two of them to meet somewhere and get the card. To his surprise, Cas wanted to meet at a coffee shop downtown a day after. Dean didn’t want to stay for long and chat with the guy, since who the hell has a cartoon bee for facebook icon? And what kind of name is “Castiel”?
However, when Dean got to the shop and saw a dark haired guy waving at him from a window table, he did not expect the guy to be this cute.
He sat down on the table and noticed the guy—Castiel, right, that’s his name— had a cup of London Fog in his hands, and didn’t seem to be in a hurry to leave, so he asked him in a half joking half serious tone: “did I accidentally agree to go on a date with you?”
The dark haired guys’ eyes widen at the question (blue eyes, Dean noticed), and blushed a little. He quickly explained that he’s gonna study here anyways and that Dean is welcome to stay at the table with him if he wanted to. Dean thought about leaving, but he decided against it, so he went to the counter and ordered a cup of a hot chocolate
“No coffee this time?” Castiel raised an eyebrow at the cup of hot chocolate Dean came back with.
Dean asked, “why do you think I should get coffee?”
Castiel blushed even harder this time, and went on rambling about how he always sees Dean at the library pulling all-nighters and Dean always goes down to the snack shop at the lobby around the same time he goes down to get his coffee, it’s just on the day Dean lost his ID card, he went down half an hour after Dean went down for his coffee.
Dean took a sip of his hot chocolate and was a little amused at the way the blue eyed guy rambled on. After a while the guy finished his explaining, and shifted uncomfortably in his seat, looking obviously Embarrassed.
“Well, if you have to know, I had 10 cups of coffee yesterday, so I figure a change of beverage should do me good.” Dean wiped off the whipped cream on his mouth with a napkin and grinned at Castiel. The darked haired guy pulled a small shy smile at him.
Eventually they got into a casual chat, and Dean was surprised and impressed to learn that Castiel was in fact, “Black Bird”, Dean’s favourite author on their university’s literary journal.
One thing lead to another, neither of them actually get to study at the coffee shop and this meet-up did turned into a date.
