Alex laid in his bed, staring at the ceiling. A laptop, some folders, and scattered paper surrounded him. He let out a sigh.
“I’d recommend sitting with them, but don’t let them talk shit about witches or Cas,” Rain said from the other side of the room, in the process of removing their makeup. “They should know better than that at this point.”
“Of course.” He kept staring at the ceiling. He could definitely defend Cas’s honor; he’d sing his praises to high heaven, if he believed in heaven. Oh, Cas… He missed him so much already. Their date couldn’t come any sooner. Where would they go? What would they do? Ah, it didn’t matter. As long as he was with his pequeno brujo…
Snapping fingers took him out of his thoughts. “Do your homework,” Rain said sternly. Alex pouted at her, but sat up and grabbed his laptop.

instead of sleeping and resting up for the next day as he had promised, Cas spent the next hour fixing up the little care basket he had made for Alex and worrying himself half to death. He prayed the reverse love potion would work, or at the very least lessen the effects so that Alex could focus on what was important rather than solely his infatuation. Cas paused from arranging the tinsel strings he had buried up from his stash of trinkets and keepsakes. As much as Cas wanted all this to be real and true, he couldn't help but be reminded that all this wouldn't have happened without the love potion. Maybe they would have confessed, and maybe they'd be dating months down the line, maybe Cas would have been brave enough and come out of his shell to have told Alex his feelings first, or maybe, and most likely, none of this would have ever happened without a little push from some magic. It took essentially tricking Alex into drinking a love potion for Cas to be comfortable enough to admit his feelings for the vampire had had a crush on for ages, something everyone seemed to have noticed except to the person whom it mattered most to.
He set aside the basket, promising himself first thing in the morning that he'd finish sprucing it up before the date. And the first thing he'd do on the date was give Alex the potion. What happened afterward would simply have to play out, but at least the emotions, whether good or bad, wouldn't have the effects of a potion. All he knew was that he loved Alex. He wanted to be with him even after the potion to prove as much. He only hoped that Alex would give him another chance.
Cas made his way to bed near midnight, barely letting himself sink in before he was overtaken by blissful sleep.
Only to be awoken by his phone going off across the room a few minutes later. He groggily got up and stumbled over to find his glasses and phone by his desk.
"Rise and shine Cas! we gotta prepare for today!" read the text from Jeckle. Cas sometimes wondered if his friend was somehow a mutant of the vampire species, seeing as he was always so energetic in the early hours of the morning.

(no worries at all, ngl I sorta forgot about this😅 take your time if you're still up for this rp at all)

Alex managed to complete one assignment and start an essay, which he considered an accomplishment. Eventually it became too late to work, even for a vampire, at which point he started getting ready for bed, thinking of tomorrow and Cas all the while. Rain patiently listened to him ramble about his dearest love from her bed before soon dozing off. And eventually, even Alex had to stop as sleep overtook him.
If Jeckle ever texted Rain or Alex, they never saw it. They both slept into the later hours of the morning, like they usually did. When she woke, Rain was up and at ‘em, yawning as they went through their normal routine. Alex had to lay in bed and let his brain catch up with his body before he could start his day.

"You're positive you're not a vampire?" Jeckle asked as he settled into the seat beside Cas who was resting his head on his arm and doodle in his notebook while eating lunch. "M'not a vampire, just tired." He replied, forcing himself to pick his head up and take a few bites of his left over breakfast from this morning
Jeckle narrowed his eyes and frowned "You did go to sleep after we left the store, right?"
Cas kept his gave on the pages of the notebook, suddenly now really interested in finishing his little doodle. "mhm, I just had to tidy up a few things…." he muttered quickly, flinching away as Jeckle lightly smacked him. "Cas! I told you to sleep! After all the magic you used, and how long we stayed up, you stayed up longer when you know you have morning classes" He chided, shaking his head and angrily biting into his sandwich.
"I know! But I wanted to ensure everything is perfect, especially if this is the last time we spend together." Cas put his face in his hands, having abandoned his breakfast and his sketch. "After he takes the potion and when it works, I'll be the last person he'll want to be around. And even if we do stay friends somehow, it won't be the same. I'll always be the witch who gave him a love potion and lead him on for a month (gonna pretend it's been longer than a week :3)."
Jeckle relaxed slightly and shook his head "How many times do we all have to say it, it's not your fault. I was the one who asked you to make the damn thing and then gave it to Alex. You just happened to be there at the right time. I don't think you led him on either. You like him, right? You both feel the same even without the potion. I don't see why he wouldn't want to be with you afterward." Jeckle reasoned, gently nudging Cas's shoulder in encouragement. "Maybe you should ask him what he thinks about all this instead of lamenting to me about it.

@Fenrir

(hi! It technically was for a week in the original plot but I think we extended it for at least a month to make it a bit more realistic when they fell in love)

@Fenrir

(no worries, I don't think I ever said it changed at any point, sorry about that)

@Fenrir

(no worries at all respond when you can. They're just hanging out in a dining hall in between classes)
