Warnings: None for the time being
Disclaimer: I do not own any characters of the Supernatural series
AN: Well I finished 'The Blue Eyed Librarian and the Green Eyed Hunter' so might as well start a new story as soon as I did. This is a TeacherXStudent fic so if you don't like that then leave, this is also a Male X Male fic if you didn't know already. I've learnt that my schooling is different to anyone who lives in America I think. For example from what I've heard you guys have your first semester halfway through the middle of the year and finish the semester the next year before moving up levels. My school works that the first beginning half of the year is Semester One while the other half is Semester Two and we go up to the next year level the next year. I'm going to adapt the school style to fit my own school so if you get confused or have a question just ask me. :3
Anyway enjoy reading! Tell me what you think of it.
Chapter One: Pay Attention Dean Winchester
Castiel Novak stormed into work on Monday morning in an incredibly foul mood. He had been on a short holiday during the ending two weeks of the first term and had come back only now a week into the second term. His holiday was pleasant and he relaxed but he forgot about how many dicks there were in his neighbourhood. His neighbour, Zachariah, had accidentally run into his car and hit the back of it, his other neighbour's dog took a shit in his yard and Castiel stepped in it staining his newest pair of shoes, his cousin Anna called him up roaring drunk and said he should be getting laid and he had to deal with a bunch of rowdy students in the last period of the day. Castiel was an English and homeroom teacher at Lawrence high, he'd managed to get a teaching job so early due to his brother Gabriel who worked there, he was a math teacher. Twenty six years old and about to flip someone to the freaking moon Castiel stormed into his office. He sat down and sighed wistfully.
"Cassie!" A familiar voice sang out to him. The nickname made his eyebrow twitch in irritation.
"Gabriel, you know how I hate that nickname." Castiel snapped as his brother pulled up a chair beside him.
"What's got your panties in a bunch?" Gabriel huffed sticking a red lollypop in his mouth.
"This day sucks." Castiel replied shaking his hand in a dismissive way.
"Well, do you want a lollypop?" Gabriel asked holding out a lollypop, where he got it from Castiel had no idea but he declined the sweet anyway.
"No, I'm alright." He said. "I just wish I didn't have such irritating neighbours."
"I hear Zachariah got fired so he's moving." Gabriel said poking Castiel's face when he started to smile at the news.
"Really?" Castiel asked trying, and failing, to keep the joy out of his tone. "Maybe that's why he backed into my car this morning."
"What a dick." Gabriel huffed. "And yeah he is, big bro told me."
"That is the best news I've heard all day." Castiel breathed with relief. "So what do you have first?"
"Year seven boys math." Gabriel replied. "I think all the kids are scared of me." He laughed, why anyone would be scared of Gabriel was beyond him. Gabriel was nothing but a joker…that is until students repeatedly forgot to hand in their work with no or a poor excuse.
"Double period?" Castiel asked. Gabriel nodded.
"Then I have a single of year eight girls, they're still trying to get lollypops off me." Gabriel chuckled.
"Well maybe if you stopped plucking them from thin air they'd leave you alone." Castiel replied. Gabriel only laughed in response. "I have to grade last terms essays, do you remember what teacher took my class during my vacation?"
"Some cooky old guy who left them on my desk, I put them in a folder." Gabriel said holding up a pale yellow folder.
"Thank you Gabriel." Castiel said sighing with relief. He reached for it but Gabriel held it out of his reach. Knowing he was taller than the other male he continued to reach for it but Gabriel was fast with his hands. He pulled the folder away faster than Castiel thought he could.
"Gabriel!" He exclaimed. He had thirty minutes until he had homeroom and then his first class, he had no time to mess around.
"Promise you'll come to visit Lucifer and I." Gabriel said. Castiel frowned. Technically Gabriel was Castiel's half-brother same with Nick, more commonly known as Lucifer, but Nick and Gabriel were brothers. Castiel didn't particularly like Lucifer, he was a bit extreme, but he was pleasant to hang around occasionally.
"Fine." Castiel growled. Gabriel grinned and passed him the folder. He quickly thumbed through the names of the essays to see if all the students had handed them in. He raised an eyebrow as he came to the end of the stack and Dean Winchester's essay sat among them. It had quite a few papers with messy handwriting. It wasn't going to be as hard to read as others but Castiel was already dreading reading through it to mark it. Dean Winchester, that narcissistic, disruptive fool who spent more time talking than he did working.
"What do you have today Cassie?" Gabriel asked.
"I have the first two free but I have homeroom, then year nine boys English and another free, and then a double of year twelve English." Castiel replied. "I dread ending the day seeing Dean Winchester."
"Hey Dean-o's okay." Gabriel defended. "His younger brother is so different from him. Have you taught him yet?"
"No, I…" Castiel looked at a paper on his desk, he had to fill in for a year eight boys Science class. "I have to fill in for a Science class today."
"Year?" Gabriel asked.
"Eight boys." He told his brother. "Eight C."
"That's not Dean's brother's class. Oh well. I bet you'd find that they're very different. Like you and I." Gabriel relied. "Anyway, I gotta go see Kali."
"Are you still trying to fornicate with her?" Castiel asked. Gabriel frowned at him.
"Nah, she's too angry for my taste." Gabriel replied. "I'm going cruising with Lucifer later. But we have to start putting together the year ten math exam for midterms."
"Ah, alright. I will see you later Gabriel." Castiel said waving to his brother as he walked out the door. Castiel sighed and started to gather his things. He walked up the stairs to the science block where his homeroom was situated. It wasn't a science room but it was still in the block which contained them. He unlocked the door and walked into his class adjusting his trench coat. No one was in class at the time which gave Castiel time to prepare himself so that he didn't snap at the students.
Midway through grading another essay, students started to forward in. He packed up the essays and leaned back in his chair watching as the seats filled up with chattering students. The bell for homeroom to start sounded and all the students started to quieten down. Castiel scanned the room noticing Dean Winchester hadn't walked through the door yet. He sighed irritably.
"Good morning class." He greeted.
"Good morning Mister Novak." The class chimed. Castiel couldn't resist smiling. He remembered that they did that but he had forgotten it over his vacation.
"I will start with the attendance role." Castiel said grabbing a pen and the role sheet. He started calling out his students names and marking them down as present and absent, something he hadn't done in a while. He came to Dean Winchester's name and sneered briefly.
"Dean Winchester." He called. The door opened and the infamous Dean Winchester walked in wearing his usual jean, black shirt and leather jacket combo.
"Here." He said with his trademark smirk. Castiel glared at him.
"You're late Mister Winchester." He remarked.
"Well I'm here now." Dean replied with a shrug. He walked to his seat at the back of the class with his friends. Castiel sighed and marked Dean as present before telling the class they could talk as there were no more announcements. He sat back in his chair and packed his things waiting for the bell to ring in the next five minutes.

Period five came and Castiel had calmed down somewhat, his classes with the lower level kids were enjoyable as the listened to him and weren't that distracted. But then he had to teach his year twelve class and he just knew they would be rowdy…well not all of them. Just a few certain people. Not to name any names. Nope. Not at all.
'I am not looking forward to teaching that arrogant Dean Winchester.' Castiel thought as he waited for lunch break to be over in the classroom. Nope. Not naming names at all.
"Heya Cassie, stop looking so constipated!" Gabriel called from the door of the classroom. Castiel scowled at his brother and resist all urges to say anything derogative towards his brother.
"Get to class Gabriel." Castiel replied in a clipped tone.
"Psh." Gabriel hissed. "You make it sound like I'm wagging."
"I'm going, I'm going." Gabriel said waving at him dismissively. The bell rang and Gabriel walked off waving to his younger brother. Castiel sighed and organised his papers as students started to forward in. His eyebrow twitched in irritation as Dean Winchester walked in talking loudly.
'Does that boy ever shut up?' Castiel thought as the irritable eighteen year old sat down the back of the room still talking to his friends. Thirty minutes in to the double period Castiel started to get very irritated at the students chatter. Dean hadn't shut up since he entered the classroom. Castiel was trying to explain the work for those who wanted to listen and do their work but it wasn't happening. Castiel slammed his textbook down on the table shutting up everyone with the motion.
"Alright assbutts, since you think you can disrupt my class as you like you can stay back and finish the work afterschool!" He snapped. He glared at Dean directly to get his point across but the boy kept his face blank and gave a curt nod. Castiel felt confusion cross his features briefly and went back to explaining the lesson. Dean didn't speak at all and looked to be paying attention. Had his outburst caused a sudden change? Was all he needed to do was yell?
'I bet this punk isn't even listening.' He thought banishing any good thought he may have had for the student.
Castiel continued on with his lesson and Dean worked somewhat diligently. Occasionally he would turn to a friend and speak to them briefly before going back to work. Castiel hadn't realised he'd been watching the kid for the majority of the sixth period until the bell signalling the end of class rang. He saw the Winchester tense and grip his pen harder before he looked up to collect the worksheets from class.
"Good afternoon." He said to multiple students who had said it to him. After the cluster of teens fled the room Castiel sighed. He raised an eyebrow at the sound of a scribbling pen and looked up to see Dean Winchester had remained in his seat. He had failed to notice the rowdy boy hadn't left. He knew he told the boy to stay behind and finish his work but he didn't think the kid would actually do it. Most of the students like him handed in half done work and were out the door before he could stop them. All they got the next day was a disappointed sigh and a bit more homework which they never did anyway.
"Call me Dean." Dean said abruptly.
"Sorry Mister Novak, gotta finish this." Dean said shortly again. Castiel tilted his head to the side slightly.
"What question are you up to?" He asked the student.
"Fifteen." Dean replied. "I got two more to go." Castiel sighed through his nose and nodded before leaning back in his chair to grade more essays. Fifteen minutes passed and when Dean presented his paper he looked somewhat nervous.
"I've finished, can I leave now?" He asked. "I have to pick up my little brother and I have work in half an hour."
"Yes, you may leave." Castiel answered with a nod of his head. Dean quickly rushed out of the room and down the hallway. Castiel raised an eyebrow before looking over the answers he had written. More than half of them were correct which was surprising considering the 'no good scoundrel' vibe he gave off most of the time. He had been watching Dean as he worked so he knew the boy hadn't copied or bullied someone into doing his work for him. Castiel hummed and marked corrections on the work before adding it to the pile he had already collected off the students.
'I wonder how he did on his essay.' He thought as he started to pack his things. Gabriel swung by again with a small frown.
"Lucifer's working late tonight so it'll just be you and me for dinner unless you wanna do this some other time?" Gabriel asked.
"Not to reject your dinner offer I think it'd be better to do it on a day we're all free and I have to correct these papers." Castiel said. "Perhaps this weekend?"
"Yeah maybe." Gabriel said with a grin. Castiel smiled back happy that his decline hadn't made his brother mopey or angry. "I'm free on Saturday afternoon, I have to go and see Kali about the midterms."
"Alright, I'm free then as well." Castiel told him. "Will Lucifer be free?"
"Yeah, Saturday and Sunday are his days off." Gabriel answered. "Anyway I gotta go, see you soon baby bro."
"Stop calling me baby bro as well." Castiel hissed. Gabriel only winked and walked away.

That night Castiel sat grading the essays that had been written during his vacation. He had finished the last one. Dean Winchester's essay. He read it and corrected it but he was surprised that there were only a few amounts of red ink on the boys paper while his friends had more crosses and notes from him on the structures of essays and various other things.
"Hmm." He hummed tapping his pen against his knee staring at the stack of essays. "I suppose that Dean isn't that bad, he does his work at least." With that said he went to get a cup of coffee before he marked the worksheets.
