anachronistique asked: TRICK OR TREEEEEAT!
[I got distracted by scary movies and gin and now I’m too tired to look at this anymore. WOO!]
"When’d she get so big?" Kaylee whispers. She leans her head against Cas’s shoulder as they watch Bobby lead Hannah by the hand up his neighbors front steps. Last year she had been too young to really understand trick or treating, but Bobby couldn’t resist showing her off to the neighbors as she giggled and ran along in her pumpkin costume, the rest of them barely able to keep up.
This year, despite talking non-stop about trick or treating since the first costume display appeared in the store, Hannah had hesitated at the first house until Bobby went with her.
Cas turns his head and laughs into Kaylee’s hair before pressing a kiss there.
Hannah bounds down the steps ahead of Bobby, waving her sack at them. “They had big ones!”
Diane waves to them from the porch, and Cas raises his hand back. Sometimes Diane watches Hannah while Kaylee is at the bakery and Cas is off on a hunt. Sometimes Cas spends an exhausting afternoon chasing after Diane’s son Jakob who Cas really thinks might be possessed by demons despite all assurances from Kaylee to the contrary.
Sometimes Cas catches Dean smirking at him like he’s an idiot while Cas struggles with daycare and playdates and earaches and favorite stuffed toys gone missing, and sometimes Cas catches Dean making very somber deals with a three year old about saving him two KitKats from her Halloween stash for when he gets back from his hunt.
(“And don’t think you can hide ‘em from me and act like you didn’t get any, all right? I worked these streets when I was a kid. I know who gives out the good stuff. Got it?”
"But only if we play Princess and Batman."
No one has ever quite figured out how playing Princess and Batman works, but as far as Cas has been able to figure out it involves a lot of climbing trees, a lot of yelling, and Dean as the princess more often than not.
"Deal," Dean said.)
Hannah digs around in her sack until she produces a full-sized KitKat. “Look!”
"Wow! You gonna save that for Dean?" Kaylee asks as she brushes Hannah’s hair out of her eyes and adjusts her witch’s hat.
Hannah drops it back into her bag with a cheerful “Nope!” before taking Bobby’s hand and heading toward the next house.
"Atta girl," Bobby laughs.
sort-of-self-reblob - put “trick or treat” in my askbox and you’ll get a thing!
I won’t get to these until tonight probably, but doo eet, yo!
