Author’s Note: This is for the Supernatural100 Drabble Challenge. The current challenge is “Pictures”.

Chasing Contentment

The only picture in Dean’s wallet is worn at the edges, from being taken out and touched too many times.

In it, Sam is unaware, his face pensive as he studies the sky.

Sam spent his childhood longing for the home he never had, chasing a dream more elusive than the demons his father hunted.

Dean was different, always content so long as Sam was with him. Everything was always fine... until one day it wasn’t.

Dean understands Sam’s brooding now, for it is inside him now that Sam is gone. This picture holds the happiness Dean lost.
