"What's this, Dean?" Dad asked, pointing to a picture of a demon he'd fought the year before.

Dean sounded the word carefully, one he'd whispered in the dark. "Huataparang."

They'd nearly lost Dad to it that night, and Dean couldn't forget any more than the lie they'd invented for Sam.

"What's this?" Mrs. Thetelbaum asked, searching the classroom before stopping in front of Dean. "Well?"

She was old and incredibly boring, and Dean rarely paid attention.

"What?"

"This word."

"Happen." He wondered if Dad was home and whether they still had food.

"Very good!"

God, what a waste of time…
