My breath caught in my throat as I realised who he was, the warmth of his body caressing mine as my unsteady breaths fogged up the space around us.
'Are you okay?' he whispers as the moment just seems to stop time around us. Oh god this feels like a Romantic movie but I didn't want to move away from him. Butterflies spread up from my stomach, igniting my cheeks as I made eye contact. Up close, I could see the beginnings of stubble on his young face, his hair messy and really untamed but I find a nerdy cute.... I cleared my throat.
'Uh yeah sorry I um had a nightmare..' I trailed off as the images came back into my head. Who were they? Was that woman my Mum? How come they didn't capture me? Thoughts whirled my around my head as Cas stroked my head, calming me from this new change in events. I can't believe how I've managed to deal with everything, finding Mum again and then having to go through this transformation from my Introvert self.
We sat there for awhile in a comfortable silence, our breaths synched as the calls of the birds outside soothed the situation. I leant my head against his chest, his arms still around me. Wait.
'How come you were in my room?' I asked, sitting up and looking at him properly.
'I uh came to apologise about earlier but I heard you sounding like being in distress so uh I came in and well..' he awkwardly scratched his head as he did so. I watched the light filtering through the strands of hair he disturbed, the moment seeming to slow down as my breath caught in my throat as I realised what I wanted. We made eye contact as we kinda realised what was about to happen. He bit his lip, seemingly at war with himself about what to do. My heart beating faster as I wait to see if this could happen. I lean in closer, trying to see if this could happen.
After what seemed like several minutes I carefully untangle myself from his arms, smiling apologetically.
'I should probably go get us some lunch,' I look at him embarrassed before walking out, closing the door behind me before sliding down and resting my head in my hands sighing. I could of kissed him but I guess I'm not as confident as I thought I was.
