"Wow, you paint too?" Dean said admiring the ceiling of Luna's bedroom.
"You paint too?" Luna asked back. Her wide eyes genuinely curious.
"I just asked-- never mind. Yeah, I paint sometimes," he said, sitting awkwardly on her bed.
She took a place by his side. "Why?" Luna inquired lying back over the dusty mattress.
"Because I like art?" He said with a frown. "Because people can't live without art and it's a way to express myself?"
"Alright. But why do you paint, Dean?"
Dean turned to look at her. Her tangled, long hair spread all over the place as she gave him a small smile. He sighed in surrender, lying next to her.
"My dad was a painter. My biological dad," he confessed with a sigh.
"That is nice."
"I guess..." Dean turned his head to look at her blue eyes. "I feel like I bring him to life when I paint. I feel alive when I'm painting."
"I see." She sighed. "Art is life," she reasoned.
He looked at her silently, smiling softly, for a few seconds. "So is love." And with that, he leaned over to kiss her full on the lips.
