All of them spent the next 3 weeks looking through every resource they could find and
talked to every hunter they knew. They always found more of the same. Any angel warding for the bunker would keep Castiel out to and the cloaking symbols were only good as long as an earth -bound angel didn't spot you. Michelle had painted Enochian warding symbols on Mary Grace's crib so they could rest peacefully at night. On the night before Mary's 1 month birthday Sam had been up all night looking back at all the files and books at their disposal Finding nothing he had knocked all the books off the table in frustration. How in the hell were they going to figure this out. Michelle was right, they couldn't keep Mary Grace locked away, but at this point, it was the only way to ensure her safety. Sam thought of how screwed up their own childhood had been and he didn't want that for Mary Grace. She was a month old and already had a price on her head. Sam's thoughts were interrupted by Castiel coming into the room.
"Everyone is asleep Sam, you should do the same. I'll take over for awhile. "
" There is nothing else to go through Cas. There's nothing here that's going to keep the angels of our ass permanently and nothing we can use without expelling you. "
Castiel could feel his frustration, his searches had turned up nothing as well. They had been searching night and day and neither he, nor Dean, or Sam had been successful.
" You still need sleep Sam, I'll just look over everything again, maybe there's something we missed. "
Sam got up from his chair looking doubtful.
" I don't think anyone can solve this problem but Chuck. " ( yawns )
" Goodnight Cas "
Sam walks out of the room leaving Castiel standing there in deep thought.
" Sam's right. I need to talk to Chuck. Hope he's listening. "
Castiel falls on his knees and begins to pray
" Father, you have given me so much but I need one more prayer answered. Michelle and Mary Grace mean so much to me. I don't want to see harm come to them. Please, help me protect them. Please don't make them pay for my sins "
Castiel waits on his knees for hours waiting, but no reply. He gets up and walks over to the books on the floor. He picks one up and as he reads tears begin to fill his eyes. He would fight to the end, but there were too many and the other angels would eventually get what they wanted. Castiel laid the book on the table and walked towards Mary Grace's room as he got closer he felt a presence. He drew his angel blade as he stepped into Mary's room and saw a shape standing near her crib.
"Get the hell away from her " Castiel yelled
The figure didn't turn around as it begun to speak.
" I'm just checking on my granddaughter Castiel. "
Castiel is stunned as recognition fills his face.
" Chuck ? "
Sam, Dean, and Michelle, hearing, Castiel yell had appeared in the room beside him. ready for battle.
Chuck turns around to face them
" We need to talk about your prayer Castiel. "
Michelle looked at Castiel and asked
" What prayer ? "
Chuck walks up to Castiel looking intently into his eyes while he answers Michelle
" The prayer about saving his family, but first I have to know who exactly that is, so I need a word with Cas alone. "
Castiel turns to look at Michelle
" I'll be back as soon as I can. "
Michelle grabs Castiel and hugs him tightly as she whispers in his ear.
" Don't you dare do anything stupid. "
Castiel kisses Shell and looks into her eyes
" I'm going to do whatever it takes to keep you 2 safe. "
Castiel turns around and looks at Chuck
" Okay, I'm ready. "
Castiel and Chuck disappear from the nursery. Michelle starts to cry as Sam and Dean walk over trying to console her.
