“I have galaxies hidden between my bones and I will love you until the stars burn out.”
In the soft light of the bedside lamp, Cas trails his fingers slowly over Dean’s skin. He makes tsking noises as he discovers each new scar, where the skin puckers from being hastily stitched up by Sam, or worse, Dean himself. Where bone breaks didn’t heal cleanly, bumps rise up beneath Cas’s fingertips, and he clucks his tongue against the roof of his mouth.
"What?" Dean asks, his voice soft and sluggish. He’s sleepy, but Cas refuses to turn off the lights.
Cas presses an open mouth kiss to Dean’s collar bone. “So many scars. I only just rebuilt you.”
Dean huffs a laugh. “Six years ago, man. In the life of a Winchester, that’s like 80 years worth of bumps, bruises and cuts.”
Cas frowns. “You should be more careful. I can’t heal you anymore.”
Dean rolls over to face his friend, and cups Cas’s face between his palms. “I’m always careful.”
Cas snorts, the corner of his mouth ticking up. “Uh huh. What’s that new mark on your shoulder then?”
Dean looks at the mark in question and begins to laugh. “Dude. You did that. Last night.”
Cas leans closer to look at it. “I did?” He tilts his head to the side and notes that it does kind of look like… “I bit you?”
Dean scoots towards Cas’s body so they’re lying flush together. “You were a little distracted at the time.”
Cas flushes, a pretty bright red spreading from his cheeks down to his shoulders. He buries his warm face in the crook of Dean’s neck, so what he says next is muffled. “Sorry.”
Dean wraps his arms around Cas. “I’m not. It was definitely hot.” Dean takes the opportunity to lean over Cas and turn off the lamp. “C’mon. let’s get some sleep. Maybe in the morning you can find some other way to mark me.” Dean’s glad the light’s off now, because now he’s the one blushing.
"You like that?" Cas asks, turning over so he’s snuggled into Dean’s chest.
"Hm. Maybe," Dean replies, his tone coy.
Cas butts his head lightly against Dean’s chin. “You’re such a liar.”
"Yeah, and you’re an assbutt, so it’s even. Now go," Dean’s interrupted by a yawn, "to sleep."
Cas hums, his eyes drifting closed. “G’night Dean.”
Dean and Cas are cuddling on the couch on Christmas Eve. Cas is resting his head in Dean’s lap and Dean is gently carding his fingers through Cas’s hair. The only light in the room is from the orange glow of the fire and the twinkling Christmas lights from the Christmas Tree in the corner of the room. Sam went to bed an hour ago, but Dean wants to stay up until midnight so he can give Cas his Christmas present.
The moment the clock strikes twelve Dean nudges Cas’s head with his hand, motioning for him to get up off of his lap. Cas obliges and turns to face Dean, tilting his head in confusion and curiosity.
"Yes Dean?" Cas asks quietly.
Dean smiles at him, slowly reaching out and taking Cas’s face between his hands.
"Merry Christmas Cas," Dean says softly, leaning in and gently pressing his lips to Cas’s in chaste kiss.
Cas freezes in surprise at first but then slowly kisses back, reaching up to wrap his arms around Dean’s neck.
"Merry Christmas Dean," Cas breathes when they break the kiss, bringing his forehead to rest against Dean’s.Their noses are touching as they stare at each other adoringly, their eyes saying what words can never convey. This is their first kiss but only a fraction of the thousands of kisses to come.
