Dean still wasn't use to taking care of Rev. The baby, now a month old was cooing at his fathers that were watching from a nearby couch while Sam held him. Exhaustion was clear on their faces while Sam cuddled his nephew. Had it not been for Sam and Bobby they were sure that he and Castiel would have been more tired. Castiel, even with his angel powers could not keep up with the demands of a newborn. It was slowly becoming easier to handle but the help of friends and family really helped them.
"If I didn't know any better I would say that there was some leviathan in him." Dean grumbled, resting his head against the back of the couch, his hand intertwined with Castiel's. Bobby was researching with Gabriel for the possible location of the tablet that was mentioned. Gabriel had decided to stick around since he and Sam had started a romantic relationship. Balthazar had left once he had discovered that Rev had passed on but promised everyone that he would return to visit, with presents even.
"Don't even joke about that." Castiel rumbled next to him, causing Sam to chuckle. Rev began to fuss in Sam's arm which led the younger to stand to prepare his nephew a bottle. "But it may be possible since you…" Dean turned his head to look at Castiel. The angel looked upset as he thought about the changes that had taken place to Dean. Part of him blamed himself for Dean's pain, especially at night when Dean would wake up screaming. The worse was when he just cried in his sleep. Dean would only calm down and go back to sleep is when he would check on Rev, making sure that his child was still there as well as Sabbath, whom was a loyal companion to Rev. Said hellhound was currently curled up on the floor beside the couch looking pitifully up at Dean.
"We haven't seen any changes since Rev but if there are any more we'll deal with them." Dean promised, lifting their intertwined hands and kissing the back of Castiel's hand. "Of course." Castiel agreed, smiling happily at his lover. Sam returned with a happy Rev, going to town on his bottle just as Bobby and Gabriel returned. "Did you find anything?" Dean asked, sitting up a bit more.
"We think we found something. We got a lead with the help of a contact that has been keeping an eye on Roman's activity. He found a sight where they have been digging, thinks that this might be where the tablet is." Bobby told them handing Dean a slip of paper that had the address of the dig site.
"Doesn't look like it's too far. What do you say Sammy? Up for a road trip?" Sam looked down at his nephew rather pointedly. "Ah! You're right, we can't be taking Rev someplace where leviathans could be around." Both Sam and Dean turned to look at Bobby. The older man glared at them all.
"Oh no you don't! I can't take care of a baby!" Gabriel chuckled as he wrapped his arm around Sam's waist, making faces at his nephew. He pouted when he got no response from the child. Bobby glared at the brothers as Dean gave his father figure puppy dog eyes. "I aint doing it!" He declared firmly, giving the boys a firm stare.
"I'll do it." Gabriel volunteered, getting surprised looks from everyone except Castiel. "What?! I can look after my nephew. It's not like Castiel is planning to go with." He motioned towards his brother, whom nodded in agreement. Dean looked a little conflicted until Castiel leaned up and kissed his cheek.
"Go. Have fun." Castiel grinned as Dean smiled brightly, squeezing his hand then standing up. "Well what are we waiting for? Let's go!"
Kevin Tran was just like any hard working, straight A advance placement student. He worked hard at his grades and followed his schedule as best he could. That being said, he was not exactly prepared for a man appearing in his room mid-cello practice. Kevin yelped, standing up quickly as he was startled by the man, knocking his chair back in the process.
"Who, how?" Kevin asked the stranger as he turned to face him. Kevin held his bow out as if to use it as a weapon against the man. "Stay away from me!" He shouted, watching the man.
"Oh calm down. I'm not here to hurt you. A little birdy told me about you, says you are going to be special." The British voice was actually a surprises to hear from the stranger although it did go well with his appearance.
"What are you talking about?" Kevin asked, slightly panicked. The man sighed, rubbing the bridge of his nose and muttering something along the lines of 'drink' and 'not my bloody job'. "Look my mom is right down stairs she can come up at any moment." This got a laugh out of the man.
"I know that is a lie, your mother is out doing errands so I highly doubt she'll be up here. Look, Kevin, I'm not here to hurt you. I'm here to help you and trust me when the time comes you'll be very thankful I came here. Name's Balthazar by the way." Balthazar greeted, giving Kevin a grin. Kevin shook a little as he tried to back away, knowing the man's name did help but not enough.
"How do you know all of this?" He was starting to panic again as the man took a step closer.
"That's easy, it's because I am an angel." Balthazar declared, looking pretty proud of himself. Kevin let out a laugh, dropping the bow a little bit.
"Yeah right. Prove it, if you can." Kevin laughed, not really believing the man in front of him. That last for all of a minute when Balthazar's eyes glowed and shadow wings appeared on his bedroom wall. "Oh." Was all Kevin managed before promptly passing out.
I'm back! More or less. More chapters to come.
