Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen, Angst)
Summary: Post "Mystery Spot" angst.
Author's Notes: For supernatural100, this is "Tolerance."
Dean wakes to the sound of wheezing, apparently his own. Sam's arms are wrapped around him, tight enough to bruise, and it's a damn good grip for someone who's still asleep.
A quick check of the other bed, and Dean can see it's Sam who moved during the night instead of him. Thank god—because he hasn't done it yet, no matter how much he wanted to that first week after bringing Sam back.
He eases Sam's hold, able to breathe now. Dean remembers that desperation like yesterday.
He wishes he'd known Sam would have understood that need to cling.
