Because it’s Valentine’s Day, and the day wouldn’t be complete without Cas and Dean
It would’ve so easy to forget what day it was, if not for Dean.
His head pops up over Cas’ cubicle wall. “Hey man, what’s going on?”
“Nothing. Just trying to look like I’m doing my job,” Castiel says as he hits alt-esc and flips from Twitter back to the company website.
“Yeah, same here,” Dean chuckles, folding his arms beneath his chin and earning an impassive look from Castiel. “You got any plans for after work?” This question strikes Castiel as odd. Normally they go out for drinks or dinner on Fridays, but it’s only Tuesday.
“No,” he says, looking up at Dean curiously. “Why?”
“Well, It’s Valentine’s day-” Castiel groans, his whole form sinking in response. He’d somehow managed to forget that the holiday was coming up but now Dean brought it right back into focus.
“What’s that look for?” Dean asks. “You some sort of Valentine’s Scrooge or something?”
“That isn’t a thing,” Castiel points out. “I just don’t get the holiday, ok?”
“So I can add this to the list of things you don’t get.” Dean chides.
“Don’t exaggerate,” Castiel says as he stands from his desk and grabs up his coffee cup. “I just don’t understand why people feel the need to be superfluously romantic on a single day of the year-”
“Ugh, this again,” Dean groans, following behind Castiel.
“I mean, if you’re in a committed relationship, should you need the excuse of a single day to buy them flowers or make them breakfast or tell them you love them?” Dean shakes his head and chuckles.
“Total Valentine’s Scrooge,” he says, grabbing a styrofoam cup from the stack and pouring himself a cup of coffee from the pot. “Well, it’s a good thing you are single and their are a whole slew of available, desperate women willing to comiserate with you then.”
“I’m gay, Dean. You know this,” Castiel sighs, pouring his own cup.
“Guys, then.” Dean replies. “Look, what I’m getting at is do you want to hit the bars tonight and try to find someone to hook up with?” Castiel lets his head fall against the cabinet in front of him. Why does Dean always do shit like this?
