Summary: Sam's still here…
Author's Notes: Season 2 drabble for the "Gift Horse" challenge at 100_ghosts.
Sam's still here.
Even after a year, it's a surprise to Dean each time he wakes up and it's still true.
Sam says he's here by choice now, that this is his life. He plans to hunt down the Demon that took everything from them— first Mom, then Dad, and always, always Jess.
The demon wants their future as well, and Dean doesn't forget that whenever Sam leaves his sight.
Whether Sam really wants this or is too angry to turn away, he no longer talks about leaving.
Dean reminds himself every day not to question that choice too much.
