Summary: For 100_ghosts "Skeletons in the closet" challenge.

x-x-x-x-x

In a library in Tallahassee, John notices for the first time in years that a woman's pretty. He'd forgotten what that was like.

Her eyes are silver, almost eerie beneath raven hair. But the effect becomes beauty when she smiles at his stack of books. "That's a lot of reading."

"Just browsing through."

They get to talking about the weather and other chit-chat, and she's bold enough to show her interest: "I'm Tessa and I'm single. How 'bout you?"

My wife burned to death on the ceiling, and I'm hunting whatever killed her. "Widowed," he says darkly.

The conversation's over.

Poor John. At least Sam and Dean have each other, he has no one.

At least Sam and Dean have each other, he has no one.
Not after losing Mary-- and I wonder, the boys and the whole lifestyle aside, if he wasn't afraid to, long term. Both for his own feelings, and also for wondering if what happened to Mary had to do with him. :(
