Thank you for staying with me.
#i hate you guys #and your breathlessness when it comes to each other #castle’s crinkled brow and the tears brimming at the edge of beckett’s eyes #the way you both visibly swallow hard like it’s the most painful thing in the world that’s happening to you #because honestly it is #and the way beckett anchors herself to castle with her arms wrapped around his neck #settling herself against his hips and creating this little cocoon of safety and warmth and desire and love #and the way that castle clutches at her back #holding her tightly right around the middle so she can’t go anywhere else #and she just clings to him desperately like this is the only thing she’s needed all day #the safety and strength of him #and she tucks her head in probably closes her eyes and buries herself in being surrounded by him #and they sway a little with it with each other #like they can’t hold still because they have to remind themselves they can move and they’re alive #how long do you think they stood like this? #wrapped up in each other before they went outside #no one else was in the building by then but do you think people came rushing in after the time expired? #and after the precinct sent the all clear #do you think she shed silent tears on his shoulder while they held each other #and maybe he made a joke in her ear #and she whispered i love you into the juncture of his neck and shoulder over and over #and maybe when they went to pull apart at last he cupped her face and kissed her one last time #and reached up to kiss her gently on the forehead next and down to her nose and across her wet cheeks #and back again to her mouth with one final devouring kiss that spoke to his desperation #and a pair of slow tears spilled from her eyes as he did and her hands balled into the chest of his shirt #and when they finally got home that night their sex was desperate and needy at first #clothes thrown off all over the apartment #but they collapsed into a heap on the bed gasping roughly at each other until that need slowed #and they savored every second #slow but rough with claims staked in the form of bite marks and needy scratches
Okay. Irene is Moriarty, you think she’s here to do something terrible, you have a hole in your shoulder; we have a dead assassin in the third floor of our home. So where would you like to start?
I could’ve kicked Castle to the curb years ago. Anytime I wanted to. Only reason I kept him around this long was because I saw how good he was for you. Kate, you’re the best that I’ve ever trained, maybe the best I’ve ever seen. But you weren’t having any fun before he came along. We speak for the dead. That’s the job. We are all they’ve got once the wicked rob them of their voices. We owe them that. But we don’t owe ‘em our lives.
I don’t look. I hunt. And trust me, you don’t want that.
