The First Time the Angel Castiel met the mortal Dean Winchester was when the mortal had just been born. Castiel had felt the pull immediately and knew his new charge had been born. He went over to the hospital and found the room Mary Winchester was staying at. Hiding behind a veil so the humans couldn't see him he entered the room.
Both Mary and John looked exhausted and Castiel whispered in their ear that they did well. Both parents smiled as they gazed down at the sleeping baby boy in in Mary's arms.
Castiel softly touched the newborn's head with his hand to confirm the bond between them. Whenever this child needed him he could call him and the angel would be right next to him to offer protection. He couldn't appear in Dean's world so Dean couldn't see him but he'd know someone was there to protect him.
The first time Castiel touched the small boy he knew there was something different with him, he'd recognized it immediately. This boy was meant to be a guardian.
There were too many people and too little guardian angels. Some humans would become a guardian. They all had one charge, unlike guardian angels for they had many. The charge would be someone from their family usually a younger sibling.
It wasn't often a guardian was born, on this special occasion Castiel blessed the child. In the coming few years he would need to keep a closer eyes on the child for demons would try to take his soul. A guardian's soul was a special soul and if demons got a hold of it... well, let's just say it wasn't a good thing.
"But don't worry," Castiel told the sleeping infant. "I will guard you."
