Author's Notes: A late birthday drabble for tsuki_no_bara!
Also for the writerverse prompt of "Nightmare," and my 5_prompts table ("this was all a trick")
Dean is gone again.
The screams and blood were the proof, and Sam saw it all—including the part where Dean's life just vanished. That was months ago, empty months of darkness where simply existing just felt like a lie.
It should have been Sam.
Dean would have wanted him to keep hunting, so Sam acts the world's savior with the weight of a wooden heart. He can't stop remembering what should've been, even now barely noticing the familiar knock at the door. He jumps up to answer it—
It is morning, another hopeless morning…
Dean is gone.
