"How long are we going to just sit here?" Castiel asked.

"I don't know, depends how long it takes for Sam to get inside." Dean twisted the binoculars to focus the lenses but found no sign of his brother.

"I'm cold," Castiel muttered next to him and Dean let out a sigh, his breath coming out in foggy puffs.

"I know its freezing."

"Can we turn on the car?" Castiel reached for the ignition but Dean slapped his hand away.

"No, we can't draw any attention to ourselves." They go back to sitting quickly, Dean stared out the house down the street through his binoculars and Castiel flexed his fingers in a poor attempt to keep the blood circulating through them. One of the lights in the house flicked on in the house but Dean couldn't tell if it was Sam or the witch in the living room.

"I've never been cold before." Dean looked away from the house and over to Castiel who was studying the frost that had formed on the window. Sometimes Dean forgets that Castiel wasn't an angel anymore, that there are still things he doesn't really understand. This is his first winter being human and everyone else in the world is getting ready for Christmas while Castiel was just trying to figure out why his fingers kept going numb.

Dean reached back and rifled around in the back seat till he found a threadbare blanket. "Come here."

Castiel slid down the seat over to Dean, not looking completely trusting of the hunter who was suddenly paying attention to him. Dean gathered Castiel's hands in his, they were stiff and icy, definitely colder than he expected. He ran his thumb over Castiel's knuckles and breathed hot breath over the frozen skin. "Is that better?"

"Yes," Castiel nodded, "thank you."

"Sam might be awhile. Why don't you try to catch a few z's while we wait?" Dean pulled Castiel down, pushing his head down against Dean's shoulder and wrapped an arm around him. Castiel seemed a little unsure but when Dean put the blanket over his shoulder Castiel curled up next to Dean trying to stay warm.

"I want to help," Castiel said trying to suppress a yawn.

"You will," Dean assured him. "But there's no point both of us trying to keep watch if we only have one binocular. I'll wake you up in a bit so we cans switch."

Castiel nodded silently and pulled the blanket tighter around himself. When Dean felt Castiel's breathing turn slow and even he grabbed the binoculars again, he rubbed his hand up and down Castiel's spine. He was glad that at least they didn't have to worry about freezing to death while they waited for Sam.

vane 3071: This book taught me so much and I even began to think, no wait know, it's important that people of all ages learn more about it. I may only be 14 but all we've always been told is that there the "special kids" that they have "issues", basically that they weren't normal. If we were to associate wi...

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

WildFlower Fire: I have only read the first chapter and I LOVE the writing style. I am excited to meet the characters and want to find out more. Looking forward to the rest.

Hadley Swiss: I loved the way you wrote this story. It was easy to recognise the characters, and it was a new plot I hadn't read ever (as in, it was different to any other, without any cliches as far as I'd read.) The dialogue was good; your characters seemed realistic. I also enjoyed the action and the settin...

Deleted User: An unusual story, well worth reading. Good conversations, excellent prose, and keeps my interest, maybe because I was there, back in the day. You won't be able to pt this book down.

Ariel: First book from the Author I've read, and am extremely impressed and very much satisfied that this story was a short-story, yet, filled with great writing, fantastic characters, and all I'd like is more, please. Malice, she is my favorite!!

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

ngonisiga: I am at loss for words in my attempt to descibe the sublimeness of this story. Kudos to you! I am so impressed at the way the story weaves itself from Navarre to England and back and finally to Sicily. You left me wanting more for this is the stuff dreams are made of in book lovers.

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl. I especially love the idea of dwarves being seafaring folk instead of...

I hesitate to write exactly what she parodies but anyone reading her book will know in a minute. Just think large-...
