Weechester. Sam is 3. Dean is 7. John was out doing research and was gone longer than he meant to be.
Inside the motel room, John found a massive configuration of blankets, pillows, and...was that a mattress?
Dean emerged from behind a woolly wall.
"You want to explain?" asked John.
"You were gone a long time. Sam got scared."
John felt the familiar twinge of guilt. "So, you decided to…..?"
Dean shrugged. "Build a fort. Keep him busy."
John noticed something on the floor. "You poured a salt line for it?"
Dean smiled proudly. "Yes, sir."
Sam came running, hugging John around the knees. "Daddy! Come play with us!"
John laughed. Sleep could wait a little longer.
A/N: I've not written a drabble in 3 years. Haven't really written too much of anything. Things happened. That's life. Some of you have continued to encourage me to write. I hope to do more of that this year than I have in the past three. This drabble is the first step in that process.
