Characters: Sam and Dean (Gen)
Summary: Season 3, and all Dean's choices are running out.
Author's Notes: For the "Star Motel" challenge at 100_ghosts, and for tsuki_no_bara just because.
Seems like they've been on this lonely stretch of road all day, though it's only five when Desert Flats shows up ahead. It's a sorry-ass excuse for a town, one combination gas-station/general-store, and the godforsaken Star Motel.
If the map showed anything closer than two hundred miles, they wouldn't stop. But Dean hasn't slept much lately, and he's whipped. This dump is it.
The beds sag toward the middle, but the AC in the other unit was broken.
"Shower?" Sam offers.
"Yeah. If it works."
One month left.
Dean promises himself his final motel won't be anything like this one…
