A Family Shattered
A/N: sammy wasn't the special kid in this, someone else was. John dies leaving Dean to take care of his brother and sister. As far as I know the town of Westmount south Dakota does not exist. I named the town after a Mall in the city that I live in.
Dean Winchester sat in the run down motel room watching his siblings sleep, dad had been gone for nearly a month leaving 15 year old Dean, to take care of the kids, he hadn't checked in since and Dean was getting worried.
Sighing he got up and moved over to the bed that his 11 year old brother Sam was sharing with their 9 year old sister Katy or 'Kitten' as Dean and Dad called her. Both brothers were fiercly protective of the little girl, noone messed with her, he sat beside his sleeping sister and brushed his hand through her long blonde hair.
"Dad's gunna be ok Kitten. I promise"
Earlier the little girl had had a freak out claming their father was dead, she'd had a dream but the boys convinced her that it was a nightmare. Nothing like this had ever happened to her before, soon as Dad got back Katy would be fine, he was sure about it. He had been almost asleep When there was a loud knock on the door that woke both of the younger kids up, as he got up to get the door he cursed under his breath.
"Sammy...get Katy and Take her into the Bathroom. Lock the door and don't come out until I say so"
The younger boy groaned and nodded taking his little sister into the bathroom while Dean went to check the door, he didn't answer it he just called out.
"we're Paid through til the end of the month!"
Another knock and then a gruff voice from the other side of the door greeted him.
"This is the Police"
Dean swallowed hard, either dad got busted on the fake credit cards finally or something was wrong, he slowly opened the door looking into the faces of two very sympathetic looking police officers.
"Are you Dean Winchester?"
The boy nodded numbly not wanting to hear what was coming next.
"Y-yeah I'm Dean"
The smaller of the officers, a woman with Red hair stepped forward frowning slightly.
"There's been an accident....I'm afraid your father was..."
Green eyes stared the woman down daring her to say it, though he didn't want to believe it.
"my dad is not dead"
The redhead frowned and placed a gentle hand on his shoulder
"I'm sorry son. But he is"
He shook his head again
"no...I'd know if he was...I'd KNOW!"
The woman frowned
"Are there any family members we can call for you"
Dean shook his head
"I can do it. I don't need your fake sympathy....Where's the car?"
The woman looked at him Confused
he sighed and nodded
"black '67 Impala? That's his car. If its him you found then you found that car not far from him"
"its been towed to a singer's salvage yard"
Dean's breath hitched, the car was with Bobby, he knew and he didn't tell them...that didn't make sense...Bobby wouldn't....do that....he just looked at the cops
"I have to call my uncle and tell my brother and sister...so you should just go"
The female officer shook her head
"I'm afraid you and your siblings will have to come with us. Without an adult present you'll have to go to..."
Dean's look turned Deadly
"I said I was gunna call my uncle. Its my uncle's lot that the car was taken to. We need to pack. And I need to take care of my brother and sister. I will NOT be separated from them. Not now."
The woman nodded slightly, it was clear she worried about these kids whereas the man just wanted the hell out of there so he could go have a beer with his buds, he felt sympathy for these kids but the older brother seemed to have everything under control. They weren't needed here. After giving him her card the female officer told him to call if they needed anything and she'd come help them, surprisingly Dean took the card and didn't come back with a smartass comment when she told him that he could call her, he just nodded sadly and closed the door as they left, before calling Bobby he decided he needed to tell the kids, goddamnit how could Katy's dream be right, he sighed and knocked on the bathroom door.
"you can come out now Sammy"
he listened for the click of the lock to tell him that his siblings were walking to him and turned looking at them with sad eyes.
"That was the cops"
Katy moved over to dean and he picked her up hugging her tight as Sam frowned
"What'd they say?"
Dean frowned but held back his tears
"Katy was right. Dad's dead"
Sam looked down determined not to cry but he couldn't stop the tears from falling, he didn't protest when Dean pulled him toward himself and Katy and just held his siblings, they were all they had left, sure Bobby or Pastor Jim would help but honestly the three winchester kids were all that they had left in the world. They stood there for what seemed like hours just holding eachother. Katy finally looked at Dean and frowned.
"I'm sorry I dreamed about daddy dying. I'll go back to sleep and dream him alive...and he'll come back to us"
the older boy kissed his little sister's cheek and shook her head
"You can't Katy. What's Dead is Dead. We can't bring him back. I'm gunna call Uncle Bobby to come get us"
he nodded a little tears starting to well in his eyes as he put Katy back down
"Go on and sit with Sammy ok. Sammy...go watch some tv while I call Bobby"
Sam nodded and took his baby sister's hand then led her to the couch, the two sat there curled around eachother while Dean made the call to Bobby.
Dean wanted to cry when he heard the Man's voice but he didn't, he just cleard his throat a little and spoke.
Bobby perked a brow
"What's wrong Boy?"
Dean couldn't help the tears that fell
"D-Dad's dead Bobby. we..we need you to come get us"
Bobby frowned grabbing his keys and his old trucker hat
"I'm on my way boy. Where ya at?"
Dean sighed softly
"Red Roof Inn. Room 32. not too far from you. We're in Westmount."
"Be there in an hour. Get yourself and the kids ready you're comin' to stay here"
Dean nodded and whispered
when both men hung up Bobby headed for his truck while Dean started packing up their gear amongst other things, he knew that Bobby would take care of them it wasn't the first time, but now Dad wasn't coming to get them at the end of the summer, Dad was never coming back again. The elder Winchester packed in silence while his siblings pretended to watch TV, everything was different now, They were truly alone in the world, they couldn't even get to Dad's body to salt and burn, sooner or later they'd have to find a way to get around to it.
An hour later Bobby got there and they were off. The ride to bobby's was made in Silence, and none of them could bring themselves to speak.
Once everyone was herded into the house Bobby went to make Supper and the Winchester kids all cluttered into the spare room that Sam and Dean usually shared, Bobby knew it would be dangerous to try to send Katy to her room at this point, so he left it be, grumbling slightly as he made dinner for the winchester children.
"Never even gave them a second thought did ya Johnny?"
Bobby hadn't noticed, didn't even jump when a man's voice softly whispered
"they were my only thought"
The Spirit quietly made its way to the children's room and sat watching Katy curled up on the bed between Sam and Dean, the older boys didn't hear it but she heard the voice.
"I'm sorry. I love you"
She just smiled softly and curled into Dean not letting her brother's know that Daddy was right there with them.
