Supernatural Gen Drabble: The Unopened Door (John)  
Title: The Unopened Door
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: John (Gen)
Rating: PG
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.

*sighs with you* Probably why Sammy plays so close to the vest about women, too. He's not built for one-nighters like Dean, and we all know what happen the last time he let himself go for another woman ... Gad, Sam gets more like John every day, in a myriad ways!

Yes-- just the wrong emotional makeup for that. Which I very much like about Sam. ;)

The irony! It burns! :D

LOL! Yeah, I've wondered if he's aware of the irony, or if Sam's just past the point of caring, dammit, he's got a job to do. ;-)
