A knock on the bedroom door
MICHELLE: Go away Sam.
CASTIEL: Its not Sam. May I come in ?
Sits up on her bed.
MICHELLE: It's unlocked.
Castiel opens the door and walks in and notices her swollen hand
CASTIEL: Are you okay ?
MICHELLE: Well the good news is I didn't break a nail, bad news I think I broke my hand.
Walks over and takes her hand.
CASTIEL: Let me see.
Michelle winces in pain.
CASTIEL ( apologetically }:Sorry
He closes both his hands around Shell's momentarily before releasing it.
CASTIEL: Better ?
Michelle looks at her hand wriggles her fingers.
MICHELLE: Thanks Cas.
Shell walks over to close door then sits back down on the bed.
CASTIEL: You know you really shouldn't pick fights with a table..
MICHELLE:That's very funny. You really shouldn't develop Dean's sense of humor.
Throws her pillow at Cas.
Castiel catching the pillow sits down on the bed beside Shell
CASTIEL: Do you want to talk about what just happened out there ?
Michelle sighs then gets up and walks towards her dresser keeping her back to Cas.
MICHELLE: I love my brothers, I really do, but I'm tired of being in between those two. Do you have any idea what that's like Cas ?
CASTIEL: I think I have a pretty good idea..
Michelle turns around and catches a smile on his face. She puts both hands on the dresser and leans back.
MICHELLE: Yeah, I guess you do don't you. You're always here for us when we need you and you have your own family problems.
CASTIELl: You guys are my family. Sam and Dean are like brothers to me and you're
( pauses )
Michelle raises her eyebrows
MICHELLE: I'm what ?
Castiel getting up from the bed, walks over and takes her hand.
CASTIEL: You're very special to me.
MICHELLE: ( looking amused ) Really ? More special than Meg and April ?
CASTIEL ( looking worried): Are you upset with me ?
MICHELLE: I don't know. Guess I'm upset with everyone.
CASTIEL (still looking worried ):But you said before that you understood. You know I never had sex with Meg and April was a mistake. I was scared and alone.
MICHELLE: Well since she killed you April was definitely a mistake and yes I said I understood,but I never said it didn't hurt.
CASTIEL: I'm sorry I hurt you. I still have a lot to learn about about human emotions. Sometimes they are so confusing.
Michelle looks at Castiel again and smiles
MICHELLE : Yes, they can be.
CASTIEL:They were interesting, but not special. They weren't you.
Castiel smiles at Shell
MICHELLE: You know you should do that more often, it looks good on you.
Lays her head on Cas's shoulder
MICHELLE: Do you ever think about us being together ?
Castiel now looking puzzled
CASTIEL: We're together all the time.
Michelle looks up into Castiels eyes and laughs
Castiel catches on.
CASTIEL: You mean together together like a normal couple ?
MICHELLE: I don't know about normal. I mean being in love with an angel is pretty abnormal and very complicated, but then again so is my whole life.
Castiel stands silently for a moment Michelle still looking at him.
CASTIEL: As complicated as an angel being in love with a human ? I didn't realize until recently what that word actually meant. I just knew that everyt ime I saw you upset like now, because of your brothers or ( takes a deep breath ) or because I hurt you, I lost a piece of myself. I didn't know how to tell you or even if I should.
MICHELLE: Are you telling me now ?
Castiel puts his hand on her cheek
Castiel: Yes I am, but I don't want to hurt you again.
Michelle moves in closer to Castiel and whispers
MICHELLE: Then don't
Wraps her arms around his neck and pulls him in for a kiss.
