Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Summary: (2x01, "IMTOD") Sam looks for answers in his brother's face.
Author's Notes: Written for spn_drabble's "Kiss" challenge, this is a little different than I expected.
Three days now, and Dean still hasn't moved. Sam watches close enough that he'd see it, his heart hanging on Dean's every breath.
Come back, Sam whispers, as if Dean can hear him—or maybe someone else is listening who can. Part of Sam still hopes that's true.
The doctors offer little comfort, and Dad's given up.
Dean… Sam looks for answers in his brother's face, in those curving lips that so recently found his in the dark. Thank God Dad doesn't know.
Sam leans forward and kisses Dean, soft as a wish. If prayers won't work… maybe fairytales will.
