Open up to Me

Chapter 16


Gabriel had spent the remainder of his afternoon on a high. He'd picked up Kali's dress, talked to the baker, and had time to swing by Sam's office just in time for his gorgeous husband-to-be to finish work and walk him home.

"You're in a good mood," Sam smiled, his and Gabriel's entwined hands swung gently between them as they walked back to Gabriel's. Sam was still dressed in his work attire; Grey dress pants, tailor made for his extra long legs, and a crisp white open collared shirt with a tailored grey jacket. He usually didn't look this smart, but they had a board meeting today about their funding and Sam had represented their firm.

Gabriel was whistling a jolly tune as they walked home. He hadn't even noticed the slight spring in his step, but now that Sam had noticed it he couldn't help but chuckle. "Sure am, babe. You'll never guess what happened today," Gabriel smirked, squeezing Sam's hand a little more.

"What?" Sam grinned, Gabriel's cheery mood was infectious. Despite spending the last eight hours in boring meetings, Sam could already feel his mood lightening just by being around his Gabriel.

Gabriel stopped walking, making Sam look back behind his shoulder and step back to Gabriel's side on the sidewalk. He gave him a curious look. Gabriel looked like he was about to explode with joy.

"Cas came to the tailors," Gabriel beamed, practically jumping on the spot. Sam's face dropped in surprise letting out a huff of a breath as he shook his head.

"W-What?" he chuckled in disbelief.

"He and Dean surprised me at my fitting. He... he was actually there, Sammy. I still can't believe it."

Sam face broke out into the biggest of grins. "Gabe, that's amazing. So, what? He just showed up?"

Gabriel nodded, fishing out his phone and handed it to Sam, showing him the photo he'd taken of Dean holding Castiel so lovingly and protectively in the store. "I guess they're just good for each other," Gabriel murmured happily, taking his phone back and put it in his pocket as he reclaimed Sam's hand and continued to walk home with him.

Sam just shook his head, unable to grasp the concept. "That's amazing. I'm so proud of them."

He was so glad his brother had found someone to call a friend and just be happy for once. His life hadn't exactly been easy. He of all people knew that. And he was happy Castiel had someone too. Being his therapist, he understood that life wasn't exactly easy for him either.

They got back to Gabriel's, and Sam wrapped his large hands around Gabriel's waist and squeezed lightly. "Hmm, are you sure you just talked to the baker?" he asked with a teasing grin.

Gabriel pouted, swatting Sam's arm. "Listen you. I'll have you know I'm on a diet. No snacks for me."

Sam snaked his hands around to rub over Gabriel's belly as he tilted his head down to kiss his temple. "Mm, that's too bad. I like my shorty with a little meat on him." Gabriel giggled, squirming in Sam's arms as he tried to push Sam away.

"No. Stop. I'm ti-ticklish," Gabriel protested between laughs.

"I know," Sam grinned, continuing to tickle over Gabriel's belly, sneaking his fingers beneath the fabric to touch his skin, making Gabriel jolt and flail about the place. Gabriel managed to wriggle free, running up the stairs only to have Sam run after him. Both laughing carefreely.

They'd ended up in a pile of limbs on the bed, laughing idiotically when Gabriel's phone went off. Sam's laughter subsided into a brief chuckle as he pressed his lips to his fiancé's forehead, brushing the hair from his face. "You should probably get that," Sam murmured quietly. "Could be important."

Gabriel looked up at Sam with soft eyes and smiled brightly. He stroked his hand over Sam's cheek, admiring his beauty. Wondering how he'd ever gotten so lucky. "Nothing's more important than this."

Sam couldn't help but smile back, dipping his head down to kiss Gabriel passionately. Holding his fiancé close as he cherished him, kissing him so sincere and slow as Gabriel's phone rung out into voicemail.

"G-G-Gabriel?" Castiel croaked down the phone, but no answer came. Just the automated woman that infuriated Castiel even more. "G-Gab-Gabriel. Please."

This is Gabe. I can't answer the phone right now. If it's you, Cas, phone Sam. BEEP.

"G-Gabriel," Castiel said again, tears streaming down his face. He was currently curled up under the stairs with the phone pressed tightly against his ear. He swallowed thickly, unsure how to explain himself. He was so embarrassed. He didn't want to have to tell Gabriel but he'd never felt like this before. So humiliated.

"I-I-I-I did something stupid," he said, letting out a low sob in to the phone. "A-And Dean's gone."
