Characters: Sam/Dean (Slash, Drabble)
Summary (Season One): Just this once, Dean was in no kind of hurry.
Author's Notes: A drabble meme offering for gunznammo2, who asked for Sam/Dean and "listen."
Also for supernatural100, this is "Reflection."
In a field washed with moonlight, Dean lay next to Sam and let the night-sounds rise around them.
Cicadas and crickets, smooth and steady, rode the rhythm of Sam's breathing until it went from labored to lazy. Big-rigs shuddered on the highway, and vibrations from a distant train rolled through the earth in waves so strong they made Dean dizzy.
Out here in the night—the peaceful night—nothing threatened in the shadows. No monster or mission waited.
Dean ran his hand along Sam's arm, thinking.
"Again?" Sam asked.
For a little longer, Dean could pretend this was forever.
