( Part 1 of 4 )
How long had it been?
Dean paced back and forth impatiently, desperate for the son of a bitch to show their face. The cracked earth beneath his boots formed the intersection of two roads off in the countryside.
How long since Sam had disappeared? How long since Dean had glanced away for one second and lost sight of his brother forever?
The one person in his life he’d never wanted to let down. The one person he’d do anything for.
The person he’d failed when they were kids. The person he’d failed again when they reunited.
You’re a fucking failure. He deserved better and he always did.
The insidious voice whispered in Dean’s mind constantly. Every day he sat at that same table, praying his brother would reappear. How long had it been? Days? Weeks? Months? Considering that Bobby had chased him out of the house, it had to have been a long time.
There’s nothing you can do for him now. He’s gone and you need to accept that.
Had it been a year?
How long would Bobby let Dean stay in his house? The days had blended together. All he did was read, and research, and delve into lore he’d never known existed.
Anything to get his brother back.
Tears pricked at Dean’s eyes as he paced angrily across the crossroads.
“Ain’t you a sight for sore eyes, sugar.”
