"I can't remember the last time I had a full table." Phade commented glancing around the round dining room table. She had a warm smile as she looked at each man. The last couple of days had been very different from the abnormal routine at the Hyperion and Angel Inc.
"Yeah, well." Dean shrugged a bit embarrassed. "It's been a while since we had home cooked meals." A slight blush crept up his neck to his hair line. Ordinarily Phade would have teased him but she was feeling quite peaceful at the moment and everyone was enjoying themselves.
"I don't think I could've dealt with another diner burger." Sam grinned patting his full stomach.
"I might've been a little off…" Phade began her brow furrowed in apology. "I haven't cooked like this since-." She stopped, the words sticking in her throat as she realized what she'd been about to say. For 6years she'd only cooked for herself and Sebastian… the familiar ache threatened to choke her voice and Phade cleared her throat pasting a smile on her face. "In big quantities."
Ryan lay a comforting hand over hers. "You don't hear us complaining." He said then turned to the Winchester's. He was outwardly polite and friendly not that it was difficult with Sam because the guy was genuinely nice but Dean… oh, he just had a smart mouth. "You should see the lunches she packs. They're huge!" he exclaimed knowing she'd protest.
Phade laughed and shook her head at Ryan's exaggeration. He turned to her with a smile. 'Mission accomplished.' He congratulated himself.
She didn't miss Sam's hopeful look and pushed away from the table rising.
"Don't worry. You guys can find out for yourselves." She opened the door next to the kitchen counter and reached down. Dean got up when he heard her start to drag something heaving intending to help her.
"This one is all yours." Phade moved aside revealing the large blue igloo ice chest. The lid wouldn't completely close which meant she'd really stuffed it to capacity. Phade noticed Ryan's surprised look and laughed.
"How come I never got one that big?" he complained more than a little disgruntled. The little green eyed demon surfacing again in a bout of jealousy.
"Because there's two of them and only one of you." She answered then in an effort to placate him she reminded. "Besides you're not leaving yet. I have enough time to make yours."
Sam could sense the sudden undercurrents and thanks to her help he could pick up on certain feelings emanating from Ryan. He stood up abruptly and cleared his throat as he walked to where Dean was busy inspecting the food.
"Come on." Sam tapped his shoulder. "Let's put in the car before Ryan decides to take it off our hands."
"Ha! He can try." Dean scoffed closing the lid quickly and crossed his arms. "Have you seen what she put in here?" he asked Sam.
Phade shook his head more than a little amused at their antics. A sudden sadness overwhelmed her at knowing the brothers would be gone. She took a little comfort in knowing that the vision or dream she'd had of them being attacked had only been that, a dream. The warning had been for her, for what was to come.
Phade went to Dean's side and gave him a hug. She hadn't thought to do it, just felt it. She could tell he hadn't been expecting that because he stiffened for a moment before relaxing under her warm touch. The startled look fell away but before he could return the embrace she slipped away.
Phade looked up at Sam with a soft smile, head tilted slightly. She reached up tugging him down so she could place a peck on his cheek. She stepped back with a sigh and shook her head again.
"You guys be careful out there."
Once more the brothers sat in the Impala both staring out the windshield.
"So." Dean heaved a breath. "Where to?"
Sam shrugged still staring ahead at the bright patch of sunlight waiting for them. "North?"
Dean tilted his head acknowledging the choice and slowly pulled out of the Hyperion's parking garage. "How do you feel?"
"Good." Sam replied. "You?"
Sam glanced at Dean who wove through LA traffic with ease until they got on the freeway. He could see the slight droop of his shoulders and sighed turning to the window again.
"You're gonna miss her."
Dean didn't respond. He thought about the girl he'd loved back in school, always looking for ways to catch a glimpse of her but never saying a word. He tried to merge the smiling image of that innocent girl to the woman she now but somehow the image wouldn't fit. He wasn't a teen any more and neither was she, they weren't the innocent kids from 11years ago not that he'd ever consider himself innocent not for a long time. But Phade…
'I fell for her twice.'
AN: Aah! I'm done! Yay! This is great so how many of you thought it would end like this?
Or the freeking end of the season episode! What the hell was that all about? A year? That's all Dean's getting? How freeking fair is that! Now, the whole time I'm watching the next season I'll be waiting for the episode when he dies and the entire time I'm going to keep thinking why? Why'd you have to go and do that! They can't kill him off! –insert crying tantrum here- 'they cant! they cant! they cant!'
