SPN Gen Drabble: "The Dark Hours" (PG)  
Title: The Dark Hours
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: Sam (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary (S1): Sam only sleeps in the car…
Author's Note: For violet_eyes and the prompt of "Sam, 3am."

x-x-x-x-x

Sam only sleeps in the car, if he can help it. By nighttime he's worn down and ready, but that's when the worst of the dreams always come.

Sometimes it's Jess, dying on the ceiling or standing by the roadside while he passes her like he's already forgotten. Other times, it's nightmares or visions (he can't tell them apart, which is torture of its own).

In the dead-black night, he reads by flashlight in a chair, or runs cold water on his face to stay awake.

Tomorrow, they'll drive. He'll doze while Dean and daylight help keep the darkness away.

Thank you! I so miss the early seasons, and all those complicated emotions over lost futures and vanquished dreams. :)

I sure miss them-- the family history and relationships, and how they all pull in different directions, was really all the drama I ever needed. So rich!

I imagine Sam would make it through the night better if Dean were awake too, but that would be both admitting and asking too much.

Dean and daylight are a nice combination.

standing by the roadside while he passes her like he's already forgotten - A sad, memorable image from that one episode.

I like. ♥

I see you know exactly which image of Jess I was talking about there. It still sticks with me, all these seasons later.

Thanks for reading!
