Open up to Me

Chapter 3


After their first evening alone together. Things became easier for both Dean and Castiel. They'd managed to establish some boundaries. Even stretch them out a little as they got to know one another. They never did watch the movies in the end but neither seemed to mind too much. They'd spoken long into the night before Dean hurriedly headed home before Sam came back and noticed he was gone. He asked with a shy blush whether he could see Castiel again. The other had grinned and nodded eagerly.

Meanwhile on the other side of town, Sam had just driven Gabriel home and they were both sat in Sam's car outside his apartment. A respectable looking neighbourhood. Not too far from Castiel's but also close enough in town to get to work. Gabriel was a baker by trade. Being his own boss helped a lot. If Castiel had a problem, he could get someone to cover for him without any hassle and go help his brother with whatever it was he needed. Still, like nights like these. Gabriel enjoyed having time to himself. Taking a break from babysitting his baby brother. Gabriel had realized he was rambling the usual speech. "I had a great time. We should do this again…" Something neither wanted to say but it had to be said. It was almost tradition in the dating world. Sam, however, cut him off, dipping his head forward and kissed Gabriel firmly.

"W-What are you doing?" Gabriel breathed with a slight gasping hitch to his voice. He pushed the other away gently but didn't leave the car. Not yet. He just stared at Sam in wonderment and quickly looked around to see if anyone was watching them.

Sam smiled sadly, cupping Gabriel's cheek to turn him back to face him. "He's not here, Gabe. It's just us," he assured, stoking the other's cheek with his thumb.

Gabriel sighed, leaning into the touch. "I'm sorry, baby. I'm just worried he'll find out some how."

"You're gonna have to tell him eventually," Sam pressed gently, scooting a little closer to Gabriel.

"I know. It's just..he's only just acclimatising to the fact we're dating. I have no idea what'll happen if I tell him we're engaged. I don't wanna freak him out. He had so much fun with Dean when you guys came around. I just wanna see where that goes before I drop a bombshell on him. I'm all he's got, Sam. I can't just leave him when we go on our honeymoon. I need to know he's got someone watchin' his back."

Sam nodded, leaning close enough to kiss Gabriel's temple and rub his arm soothingly. "I know, honey. It'll be tough. But it's not like you're alone. I still haven't told Dean about you. He still thinks I'm dating some blonde from work."

Gabriel frowned, looking up at Sam. "What, why?"

"Same reason. I don't wanna make him feel like I'm leaving him behind. I'm all he's got too. Sure he's had friends and dates before but nothing that stuck. The excitement of being friends with a mute wears off pretty quickly. People just don't seem to want to keep up the effort to talk to him."

Gabriel pressed his left hand over Sam's. "That's really sad," he sympathised.

Sam nodded. "Yeah. So you see why I haven't said anything?"

Gabriel stretched his neck up just enough to kiss Sam tenderly. "I understand."

Sam kissed him back and smiled sadly against his lips. He pulled away just enough to raise an eyebrow at Gabriel. "Where's your ring?" he asked, looking down at Gabriel's hand which was still resting lightly over his. Gabriel looked down at his hand and smiled sadly.

"I think I left it in here the last time you decided to pull me out for a quickie in the backseat before I went to go see Cas." Sam made a face of recognition and smirked, leaning over Gabriel to get to the glove box. He routed around a little before finding a plain silver band hidden inside an empty condom wrapper. He laughed a little, looking over at Gabriel.

"You really were in a rush, weren't you?" Sam chuckled to which Gabriel grinned, taking the ring and putting it back on his finger with ease. He sighed happily, glad to have it back on his finger. He hated taking it off to go see Castiel. It felt unnatural not to wear it. He felt naked without it.

"What can I say? After royally screwing my brains out I didn't have much time to think," Gabriel smirked, squeezing Sam's hand a little and tangled their fingers together. Sam grinned, leaning in close to Gabriel and kissed his cheek.

"So am I gettin' lucky again tonight or what?" he smirked, to which Gabriel laughed and swatted Sam's arm playfully.
