Rating: PG-13 (language)
Summary: S3 drabble on time running out.
Author's Notes: Happy late birthday to sierra_foxx, who wanted a Dean drabble along these lines. I'm glad you had such a good birthday!
Also for supernatural100's "Insomnia" challenge.
In Abilene, Dean lies in the dark and counts the days left.
Sixty-seven now— today spent on driving and a truckstop beer. Tomorrow will be demon possessions and research, and please no fights with Sammy—there's been too much fighting lately, both of them tense and scared and no closer to finding an escape.
Dean can hear Sam's sleep-heavy breathing, a sound he's listened to nearly every night of his life. Those horrible hours where there was no breath, no Sam were what drove Dean to the choice that'll claim him soon.
Fuck the consequences—he'd do it all again.
