Okay, you guys wanted me to let you know when the sequel started posting... well, it has. The prologue went up this afternoon! So, look under my name for Long Journey. And enjoy! Now, onto a short snippet that was requested.

"Cassie, how nice of you to join us," Balthazar spoke up as Cas walked out into the sunlight. Balthazar always chose open, bright, happy places to hold meetings. He said they needed it to counteract the tedium of a bunch of angels debriefing. Cas would have to agree.

"I was under the impression you didn't require my assistance with this," Cas responded as the angels began to wander off, the meeting obviously concluded.

"You were definitely under something," Balthazar muttered.

Cas raised an eyebrow at his brother, a habit he'd picked up from Dean.

"Actually, if you must know, I wasn't under anything. Dean, however..." Cas trailed off as Balthazar broke out into raucous laughter.

"Leave it to you, little brother. I'm proud."

"Thank you. Now, we really do need to make some decisions," Cas started, moving towards the bench in the middle of the clearing. He really did like this little corner of heaven, so calm, so peaceful.

A/N: short and sweet, yes, I know, but my muse is a little tired at the moment. Thanks for reading!
