ImageCas wrung his hands nervously as Phoenix asked him to wait, his mind reeling as to what he could possibly be getting. A rather strange expression overtook his face as of all things Phoenix came back with his tea and cookie placing it into his hands, ordering him to sit on the bed. He took a few moments staring hopelessly between the tea to the witch before nodding and allowing himself to sit down. It was surprisingly comfortable and he made sure to sit as close to the edge as possible.

"Okay" Cas had never heard himself sound so hopeless, so quiet. He took a quiet deep breath as he tried to calm his nerves, taking a small sip of the tea relishing the he instantly felt color flush to his cheeks. So he sat, quietly, as Phoenix began to gently clean out his scars - or what had become of them. A few seconds he would let out a sharp gasp as the cloth brushed over a specifically tender spot, murmuring a slight "sorry" for no reason other than he didn't want Phoenix to think he was hurting him in any way. Cas nodded to the small warning griping the soft cloth of the comforter as he felt the familiar stinging sensation of alcohol along his back. He grit his teeth and closed his eyes as he focused on breathing out of his nose. From being desensitized to pain for so long, even the slightest sensation was tough for him to endure.

His eyes opened as Phoenix's voice spoke from behind him, every word bearing more weight on to his shoulders. It was something he'd always wanted to hear but they didn't settle with him like he always thought they did because as he thought more about it, the answer practically swallowed him whole. He did this to himself, and he had been running from his choices ever since. Maybe he was just embarrassed by that fact - ashamed of it.

So he stayed quiet, his head hung rather low as he passed the bandage back and forth until Phoenix had secured it tightly. Cas felt the bed shift as Phoenix moved to sit beside him, that expression of worry in his gaze making Cas's heart wrench. Even after everything Phoenix still cared about how he was doing, maybe even more than himself. It was something he couldn't quite wrap his head around, or possibly he just refused to believe that it was true. He suddenly found that he couldn't meet Phoenix's gaze as he instead settled on a small loose string of the comforter. "Phoenix, I-" He paused his face pent up in a mixture of emotions as he let out a deep breath meeting the witch's gaze. "Thank you. For helping me and, and for the tea. I just-" This time he was clearly wracked with frustration as he couldn't figure out how to get the right words out. "I think it would be best to get some rest. Tonight was something no one can just take in stride and I think you - we both would benefit from some sleep" He instinctively took Phoenix's hand in both of his and gave it a small comforting squeeze, "tomorrow morning you can make some of that jam and we can talk, okay? I promise" He felt a small bit of himself return as smiled softly. At Phoenix's offer to sleep on the couch, Cas was frankly too exhausted to say no. So he found himself laying on the couch, the living room was quiet and dark but the warm haze from a lamp in the corner cast a comforting glow over the room. He had laid himself stomach down on the couch as his scars where still tender and sore. Cas was a little to big for the couch and his arm hung off the side his fingers grazing the carpet. Instead of thinking about the night he instead closed his eyes and willed himself to sleep. He knew the longer he thought about it the more he would begin to regret everything he had done.
