Supernatural Gen Drabble: Player

Title: Player
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: Dean (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Drabble on "angle" for slodwick's drabble tree, and for 100_ghosts' "Nature vs. Nurture."
Author's Notes: A different take on "Nature vs. Nurture"-- this is what the life John chose for the family made Dean, even if John never would have raised him that way on purpose.

x-x-x-x-x

It's almost like a game— how far Dean can get, how fast, without making the girls angry. Pushing too hard usually leads to crashing and burning, or starting up again with someone else. If there's time…

He could take it slower if they were staying in town for awhile, but it's been years— Sammy in high school— since their lives laid anchor that long.

He didn't learn this from his Dad, still hung up on their mother twenty years gone. Sam knows, but Dean hopes Dad didn't.

Dean works the angles, knowing he'll never have the chance at anything else.
