The sun was starting to set. The people were long gone and all you could hear was the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. Dean woke up with a start. The sunglasses fell into the sand and he blinked a couple of times before he realized where he was. He was alone. Sam, Eileen and Jack seemed to have disappeared. He checked his phone and there it was a message from Sam.
Went to grab somethin to eat. Didn't want to wake you. Jack's w us.
He texted back with a simple 'ok'. Then he looked for Cas. He was sitting not too far from him, watching the sun disappear over the horizon. Dean stared at him for a long time, like he was deciding if it was a dream or not. He could not believe they were finally there, after everything they'd been through together. He was hungry too but something was stopping him from breaking that moment. He wanted to stay as long as he could, maybe forever. When Cas felt his gaze, he looked back at him and smiled. Dean felt his heart skipped a bit. A warm feeling started to grow in his chest. He got up and walked over to him. The sand tickled his toes. He dropped down beside him, shoulder to shoulder. Cas's blue eyes looking at him like he was the sun that just had disappeared.
-Hey-he said choking a little under Cas's blue stare.
-You fell asleep, we didn't want to wake you up-Cas said as he looked at the water again.
-Yeah, I really passed out huh?-a half smile spread across Dean's face.
-You really fall asleep anywhere- Cas really loved that part of him, as if he had something not to love. It constantly gave him the opportunity to watch him sleep. From watching him sleep in the passenger seat on a long trip to there sleeping on a beach chair with his sunglasses on. Cas thought the image was funny, he couldn't help but smile as he watched him sleep with his glasses crooked, his mouth slightly opened, drooling a little. God, he felt like his heart could explode.
-What were you thinking?-Dean asked, leaning on him a bit.
-I was just saying goodbye-Cas said, shrugging.
-To the sun?- Dean felt the melancholy in Cas's voice.
Cas didn't answer. He seemed to be lost in his thoughts. After a little while, when the light had almost disappeared from the sky, he spoke again.
-It makes me sad...-he finally answered. Dean waited.- I spent thousand of years watching him disappear and come back again the next day, perpetually alone...
Dean felt the depth of Cas's sadness. He wanted to comfort him in every possible way and yet he found himself searching for the right thing to say. All the unsaid words hanging in the air between them.
-You're not alone anymore- Dean said taking his hand and lacing their fingers together.
