AN: Wow, what a week. I had finals, the school year was ending, and my computer crashed. The thing DIED man, we had to buy a brand new computer! I didn't think I was going to get this up in time. I will, but not all 4 parts. This is chapter 1 or 4, and all the parts are separate oneshots, you don't have to read the one before it to understand the next one. They will be in chronologic order, and I HOPE to have all 4 posted by fathers day. (keyword is hope)
By the way, if you like John, I don't think you're going to like this story much. I redeem him a bit in the last one but…heh…
Anyway, hope you enjoy. Dean is 11, Sam is 7. It's a short one, and no real angst…this time, MUWHAHAHAHA!
Disclaimer: If I owned my boys I wouldn't have to work hard to get enough money for my play station 2.
Chapter 1: You're my father
Rain pelted the dingy motel rooms window softly. If one listened extremely hard, they could hear a small rumble of thunder in the distance. A lone bird gave a good morning chirp then retreated to the safety of its nest.
It was seven AM. A seven year old Sam had rose from his place in bed with a happy smile on his face. Making sure Dean was still asleep he quietly moved into the small kitchen area and began searching for a bowl. Finding one with a small chip at the top, he placed it on the counter.
Their dad had left last night on a hunt. He had told them to stay inside and that he would be home in two days.
That's when young Sammy had formulated his plan. It had taken a little while, but he knew what he was doing.
The seven year old put two slices of bread in the toaster and pushed the knob down. Satisfied the bread was being successfully toasted, he moved to the small fridge and took out an almost empty tub of butter, a half empty carton of milk, and a juice box he had opened yesterday so that Dean wouldn't take the last one. He carried all three items to the counter and put them down (a little harder then necessary). He cringed at the sound and looked at Dean, who had turn towards him but was still sound asleep.
Breathing a sigh of relief, he poured the lucky charms in the chipped bowl and poured some milk in them. He grabbed a spoon and carefully walked the cereal to his brothers bedside table. He set it down and jumped when the toaster went off. He moved silently to the toaster.
The toast was a little burnt, but still edible. He dropped it on a paper plate from the night before and spread butter on it. Satisfied, he took the toast and set it beside the cereal.
Now came the tricky part. Sam took a paper cup from the dresser and slowly tipped the juice box so the juice would run through the hole and into the cup. When he was done he set the juice on the table and smiled. He was done.
"Dean!" Sam said, poking him hard in the chest.
Dean instantly sat up, defensive until he saw his little brother standing there and smiling.
"What is it Sammy?" Dean asked, yawning.
Sam's grin widened and he pointed to the table. Dean turned his gaze to it and froze when he saw the kind arrangement.
"Sammy? What's this for?"
Sam just kept grinning and quietly ran to his own bed. He pulled something out of his bag and rushed back to Dean, holding it out.
On the front was a picture of a yellow sun and two boys smiling and standing next to each other. The taller one had 'Dean' written under it and the shorter one said 'Sammy.'
Dean opened the card to the words "I love you Dean," in sloppy handwriting. Under that it said…
"Happy fathers day Dean," Sam said.
This caused Dean to look up at his little brother. It took a moment before he could speak. "Sam, I'm not dad."
"Well, the teachers before never told us about a brothers day and you act like a dad so I thought…" he trailed off, unsure if he had done something wrong.
Seeing this, Dean reached up and pulled Sam into a quick hug. "Thank you Sammy."
"Happy fathers day Dean," Sam said quietly.
"Happy fathers day."
Because even though their father wasn't there right now, they had each other, and that was good enough for them.
AN: Yes, my very short one, the next one will be longer. I love brother moments, and I love young Dean and Sam. Hopefully I'll get another one up in the next couple days. Please review and tell me how it was.
