Open a Tab in the Favor Department - Ch. 2
Crowley didn’t have the wherewithal to go far; he found himself in one of the upstairs bedrooms in Bobby’s house, curled into a ball in the corner and trying not to think of dark cells in leaky rooms with screams echoing off the walls.
He’d never been claustrophobic before. Snakes liked small spaces. But there was something about the panic room that reminded him of Hell’s chambers. He’d spent plenty of time down there in the early days.
And the fourteenth century.
A warm hand touched his own and Crowley looked up into Aziraphale’s worried blue eyes. “My dear.”
Crowley didn’t realize he was crying until Aziraphale removed his glasses and swiped his thumbs against his partner’s cheeks. “I was trapped,” he choked out.
“It’s okay,” Aziraphale soothed.
“I haven’t been trapped like that since- since-”
“I know, love, I know,” Aziraphale gently pulled him into a hug. “It’s okay. You’re okay. He won’t do it again.”
Crowley shuddered. If it was anyone other than Aziraphale, he’d be mortified. He had been a demon, for Satan’s sake! He was cool, suave, and didn’t panic. He certainly didn’t cry, except when Aziraphale was concerned.
And apparently this.
“’M okay, Angel,” he finally managed.
Aziraphale leaned back to look at him closer. It was clear he didn’t believe him, but to Crowley’s relieve his partner didn’t press. “I’m going to go make sure the sigil is completely gone.”
Crowley nodded. “I’ll just… stay here for a minute.”
Aziraphale kissed his forehead and left, casting a last concerned glance over his shoulder.
Crowley sighed and stretched his legs out in front of him. His head thunked back against the wall. Deep breaths.
The floor creaked and Crowley’s eyes snapped open. Dean was leaned against the door frame, arms folded and an unreadable expression on his face.
“What do you want?” Crowley snapped. Or, tried to snap. It came out more an exasperated sigh. He closed his eyes and leaned his head back again. Aziraphale needed to stop taking his glasses when they weren’t at home, especially when they were with the Winchesters, since his already horrifying eyes seemed to be even worse for them.
“No shit.” No use denying it now; Crowley was certain his eyes were puffy and there were likely clear tear tracks down his cheeks.
Crowley cracked one eye open to peer at him. “You’ll figure it out when you’re contract’s up. What kind of dumbass hunter sells his soul to a demon?”
Dean stiffened slightly. “I already served my time, asshole. Forty years, before Cas came and got me.”
Crowley lifted his head and looked at Dean fully, appraising. For a human to spend such a long time in Hell and come out again… he’d expect him to be in the same kind of state Sam was currently in. It certainly explained the drinking. “Forty years,” Crowley repeated slowly. “Why would Heaven…” Throwaway comments created a timeline, dots connected, and Crowley’s eyebrows rose. “You were the Righteous Man?”
Dean looked away jaw working.
“You were,” Crowley said. It wasn’t quite a gasp, but it was a near thing. “There was an Armageddon, which means you…”
