( Part 3 of 6 )
When he reached two inches, they drove to Bobby’s.
Sam’s heart pounded in his chest, fluttering like mad as the Impala’s engine roared through him. Everything was huge. He’d just gotten sort of used to his new size, and he’d woken up smaller. Real fear was beating in his heart. His entire life was a ticking time bomb. Soon he wouldn’t be able to even interact with Dean. It wouldn’t be safe.
That thought scared Sam more than anything.
The thought of having to stay away from Dean or Bobby, the thought of losing some of the last important people in his life…
He’d lose his brother more completely than when he’d first shrunk.
Even Bree would tower over him now. He was the same height as Kara. But slimmer, and far more out of place.
He tried to prepare himself when the engine of the Impala stopped. But there was really nothing that could prepare him for the immense movements of Dean.
The pocket swayed from side to side, almost knocking him over even where he was sitting. Gravity pushed him down as Dean stood up, and again as Dean went up the stairs to Bobby’s. Thunderous knocks shook Sam’s world right before a creaking door opened up.
“Boys.” Bobby’s gravely voice filled the air.
“Hey.” Dean pushed into the house, in too much of a hurry for formalities. Sam could hear every beat of Dean’s heart. He could hear how it sped up now that there were no distractions from their problem.
Sam was gathered out of the chest pocket by careful fingers and lowered to the table between the two giants. His massive family.
He caught his balance, clutching his satchel close as he stared up at them both. Dean’s face had new stress lines as he looked down at Sam. Bobby’s eyes were crinkled, but not with a smile. He was the one to lean down first.
“How you holdin’ up, Sam?”
Sam’s mouth was dry as he yelled up, “I’m fine!”
They all knew he was lying through his teeth.
