John Winchester had attended the funeral, but had stay out of sight so that his sons would not see him. He watched as they lowered his baby brother and his sister in law into the ground. He saw his young niece sitting there not a tear in her eyes.
After the funeral he went to the gathering, but again he stayed out of view of his sons. He saw Abby walk away from the group of people onto the path that lined the park.
He followed her keeping out of sight from the group still. When he was sure that no one would see him, he called out to her "Abby"
He watched her turn around and spot him. A shocked look appeared on her face.
Abby stood there looking at her uncle who she had not seen in a few years. "Uncle John...what are you doing here?" She asked him after the shock of seeing him subsided.
"I came to say good-bye to my brother and to see how you were holding up."
"I am doing ok" She replied looking away from John.
John walked up to his niece and lifted her chin so that her face was looking up at him. "It is ok to cry Abigail." He said to her.
Abby then let the cries and tears she had been hiding from everyone else out. She put her arms around her uncle's whist to form a hug.
John held Abby in the hug while her thin body shook with the sobs that came out.
Abby cried in his arms for what seemed like hours, but was only twenty minutes, until she could cry no longer. She pulled away from her uncle "Are you going to see Dean and Sam?" Abby asked him wiping the linger tears from her eyes.
"No I don't want them to know I was here. So when you go back don't tell them ok"
"Yes sir." She replied "Uncle John what am I going to do now? Where am I going to go?"
John hugged her tight one lasted time, and then said, "That is for you to decide." He turned and walked away. He hadn't walked very far before he turned back around, "I love you, Abby." He said.
"I love you, too, Uncle John." She watched as her uncle walked away. Then she collected herself and walked back to group of people.
When she arrived she found her two cousins standing next to a table that had food on it. She walked up to them and hugged them both. The brothers returned the hug they received.
"What was that for?" Dean asked as he pulled away from the hug.
"It was to say I love you." She replied with a smile.
"Well we love you, too, Abby." Sam said giving her another hug which Abby returned.
"Good." She said as she pulled out of the hug and left the confused brothers.
"What was that about?" Dean asked Sam
"Just because I have those premonitions doesn't mean I know everything. My guess is as good as yours." He said with a smile.
"Whatever man," Dean replied.
Later that night that three of them sat in the room. Sam was on the laptop looking for a new hunt that the brothers would go on. Dean searched the papers.
Abby lay there on bed thinking about how she was going to tell and convince her cousins to let her go with them.
"Guys," Abby said sitting up. The brothers look over at her. "I have been thinking."
"About what?" Dean asked
"About what I am going to do now," She replied, "I was thinking...that I...I could go with you guys."
"Nope, no why, Abby, it is too dangerous." Dean replied looking back at the paper.
"Listen Dean, I have no place to go. My house is gone and my parents are dead. What else am I going to do?" she asked. She was on the verge of crying again.
"I said no." Dean replied not looking up from the paper.
Sam got up because he saw the tears that threaten to fall from Abby's eyes. "Abby you can't come with us. We don't want you to get hurt." Sam said placing a comforting arm around his cousin 'or lose you like Uncle Jonah and Aunt Riley' he thought to himself.
"Well I don't have to go on the hunts. I can stay in the motel or hotel room we happen to be at. Please let me go with you." Abby begged.
"Dean, can we talk outside a minute?" Sam asked walking over to the door and opened it. Dean sat down the paper, with a sigh, got up and walked out the door.
Abby sat there waiting for them to come back in. She heard the muffled voices of her cousins outside the door. Five minutes later the brothers came back in.
"Abby," Dean and Sam walked over to her, Dean doing the talking, "Are you sure you want to come with us?" Dean asked her.
"Yes, Dean, I am positive." Abby replied.
"You do understand that it will be dangerous even if you just stay in the room?"
"Sure I do, but I want to be with you. You guys are my family."
"Alright, you can come with us, but you will learn how to use a gun so that you can protect yourself."
"Thank you Dean, thank you," Abby replied giving both brothers a hug.
"Well how about we get some rest. We have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow." Sam said.
"Where are we going?" Abby asked.
"New Mexico." Sam replied.
"Oh this is going to be fun." Abby said as he climbed under the covers.
