Summary: Drabble on "Almost" for supernatural100.
Not in Kansas all those years ago—it doesn't collect its many children when they're young.
Not in Chicago, though it would have happily taken the father or brother then. Fierce souls are nearly as succulent as those of innocence.
Not in the hospital, where John Winchester gave his life for the other son and never knew that it was a wash either way, where Fate was concerned.
Just now, it walked around inside the dark-bright boy for awhile, blackening his soul with the Hunter's blood that covered his hands.
But not yet. So close. But not yet.
