Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Summary: Sam's at Stanford, and there are so many things Dean swears he doesn't miss...
Author's Notes: A birthday drabble for black_regalia, who wanted Dean pining over Sam. I hope this hits the spot!
Also for supernatural100, this is "Glass."
Nights in the cold north, Dean doesn't dream of Sam's warm skin there beside him, he doesn't lie half-asleep waiting for the sounds of Sam breathing.
In the southern heat, Dean doesn't think of Sam off in California with beaches and sun, smiling for someone else.
It's better, he tells himself, better this way. He never should've—they, they both did—crossed that line. Sam'll find something real now.
He doesn't miss Sam's laughter, his quiet kisses.
Yet when he calls the dorm a year later and it's Sam who answers, the sound of his voice shatters Dean like glass.
