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.

It hits you deep down in the gut, because you just know that Dean is like a lost little boy inside, scared of the proverbial monster(s) in the closet--only this time, the monsters are real, and they're coming for him.
It says everything about Dean to me that as scared as he is of what's coming, the idea of him living while Sam was dead was unimaginably worse.

He'd still make that choice again even now.
