The Life Of A Winchester
Chapter 1 Chipmunk, Scratches, Dead Boys Oh My!
"Come on Sammy, we don't really need to tell him do we?" I asked slightly nervous of what he might say.
"We have to. If we don't and he find's out, then we're just in for more trouble." Sam gave me the answer I really didn't want to hear.
"But he'll never let me drive it again! I mean it's only a teeny scratch, I can easily cover it up with black nail polish! I have plenty of it. Please Sammy." I gave my older brother the best 'boo boo' face I could muster.
Sam just glanced down at me. Standing 6'5" it's the only thing he can do. He gave me a that 'Sammy Smile' that I know and love.
"Ok. We won't tell him, YET, but sooner or later he's going to find out and then what?" Sam asked. Before I could answer my phone rang. "Hello. Oh hey Dean. No we're on our way back now. Ok. Ok. It went fine. Ok. Bye." I put my phone down and looked at Sam. "Bet you couldn't guess who that was?"
"Um well let me think...Dean? So what are you planning on telling him anyways?" Sam asked.
"Well I can tell him that a satanic, evil chipmunk was about to attack you while you were kindley getting gas and I thought quick to run it over. I was only thinking about saving my dear, sweet, older brother from the clutches of the evil chipmunk. Then the chipmunk jumped to try and escape and it scratched the car! But the good news is that I killed it and stopped it's reign of chipmunky terror." I said with a huge grin.
"Chipmunky terror?" Sam rolled his eyes and smiled as we pulled up to the motel we were staying at. I could only imagine what Dean would say if he found out I scratched his "baby".
"Ok go and get your nail polish while I stall Dean, but hurry up or we're both dead." Sam gave me a wink and I took off for the motel.
"Love ya Sammy!" I yelled before I entered the room to see Dean.
"So did you do good?" Dean asked as soon as I entered the room.
"I..um..well." Damn I couldn't get the words out. How was it on the phone I could lie no problem, but face to face? Nope not happening. Luckly Sam was right behind me and covered.
"She did better than I thought she would."
I gave Sam a quick smile and went to go get my nail polish when Dean stepped in front of me.
"Ok spill it. What happened?"
'Fuck almost made it' I thought
"Nothing happened. She did well." Sam spoke up.
Dean just looked down at me. True he wasn't as tall as Sam, but compared to my 5"3' midget ass he was a giant none the less.
I managed to get around him and went to my bag and began to rumage for the polish when I heard it...
"Well I'm going to get something to eat. You guys want anything?" Dean asked as he was pulling on his leather coat.
'Oh crap what do I do? He's going to see the scratch then Sammy and I are both dead! Crap, crap, crap!'
"Dean I scratched the car."
I looked up at Sam who just took the fall for me. 'That Sammy for ya. Always willing to die for his baby sister! I'll miss ya Sammy.' I thought.
"You what? And you were going to tell me this when?" Dean didn't look as mad as I though he would.
"I didn't mean too, we were pulling in for gas and I was driving because Kira was afraid to pull into the gas station and I guess I took the turn to wide. I'm sorry." Sam explained looking at the ground.
"Well I guess it's better than the evil chipmunk story." Dean said with a smirk.
"Wha? You knew? How the hell..?" I was starting to say.
"Watch your mouth. How do I know well it's simple." Dean started.
"Well..." Sam and I just wanted him to continue.
"You two talk WAY too loud and hang up your cell phone after I call next time. Now lets go get some food." He said as he was leaving. "But I do have to tell you something."
"What?" I asked.
"It's a good thing you stopped it's reign of chipmunky terror." He told me putting his hands on my shoulders..
"Bitch. Now let's go. I'm starving so I'll forget about the scratch for now."
Sam and I just looked at each other in amazement. Sam just shrugged and followed Dean. I was still in shock. (How could I forget to hang up my phone? God I'm a moran!) For one my oldest brother knew I scratched the car, not just any car, THE CAR. The car in which he loved more than life itself. And I was still alive. Not just me, but Sam too.
'Ok somethings wrong I know it.' I thought as I followed my older brothers.
Background Time Yay!
My name is Kira Winchester and I'm 17 years old. As you already know my older brothers are Sammy and Dean. What you probably don't know is that I'm adopted. Yup! Turns out that the same thing that killed Mary also killed my birth mother. John came to try and stop it, but was too late. He saw me lying in my crib and rather than making me go from foster home to foster home with people thinking I'm crazy for waht I saw, he took me in. He told me when I was 10 about my real mom, but no matter what he'll still always be my dad and Sammy and Dean will always be my big brothers! They kinda look out for me and I help them hunt the things that go bump in the night. They came and got me from school after Sammy's girlfriend Jessica was killed by the same thing that killed our mother. I was in a private school for the past 3 years. Dean thought I would be safer with them on the road so here I am. Sammy was teaching me how to drive and as you guessed I scratched the car. Yes THE CAR, SCRATCHED! My bad. We just got done hunting a shapeshifter and Dean thought we could use a little down time. I think it freaked him out a bit that he had shot, well himself. Ok know it weirded me out, but I'll get over it I guess. Anyways we're still looking for our dad who is god knows where and we're killing things along the way. I don't really mind not having a life as long as I get to spend time with my big brothers.
"Kira you comming?" Sam yelled from the pasenger seat of the 67' Impala. Dean was just drumming away to Matallica.
"I'm comming." I yelled as I broke into a sprint to the car. I climber into the back seat (as usual) and started humming along to 'Enter Sandman.' 'God I love this song.' I thought.
We got to the little cafe around 2:30 or so and sat in the booth at the far end of the cafe. Dean and I sat on one side while Sam sat across from us. The waitress came and took our orders and looked at us like we were crazy. I can't blame her we ordered enough food to feed a small town, but hey we're Winchester's and we have big apatites.
"Sooo what are we going after next?" Dean asked as he took a sip of his coke.
Sam looked up from his labtop.
"Well... we have a house in Mississipp that is said to show you your greatest fears, there's also a lake in Maine that some say a monster inhabits, oh there's a..."
He was cut off by the waitress bringing us our food.
"Well I like the way the lake monster sounds." Dean said taking a bite of his hamburger.
"Do we have to do the lake monster one?" I asked sounding a little more scared than I would have liked.
Dean and Sam just looked at me with well slight concern.
"Why don't you want to hunt the lake monster?" Dean asked all the while shoving french-fries into his mouth.
"Well...I..um..I don't." Why couldn't I tell them.
"Well?" Dean asked again.
"I um keep having this dream where I'm trying to grab something under water and..." my voice started trailing off.
Sam was looking from Dean to me.
"Ok so your reaching for something and..." Sam finally spoke up.
"Well something pulled me under and I couldn't struggle free. What ever it was kept pulling me farther down and I couldn't breath or see or hear and then everything goes dark and..."Dean cut me off
"Woah woah woah. Slow down." He said as he placed a hand on my shoulder.
"Ok so just because you have a dream doesn't mean that it's going to happen." Sam added looking just as concerned as Dean.
"Yeah. Sammy's the psychic here not you." Dean smiled at Sam.
"It's Sam, and that's not funny. Maybe there is something to this lake monster. I mean we should at least look into it don't you think." Sam was asking Dean who was still focused om me.
"Well I guess. We'll go back to the hotel and see what we can find out about this lake ok."
"Ok" I mumbled.
We got back to the hotel room and Sam went straight to his computer and starting doing research about this so called lake monster and what not. Me on the other hand went to lay down. I haven't been sleeping so well lately. Gee I wonder why?
Dean was laying next to me watching T.V. (no not Oprah:) He kept glancing at me to make sure I was ok, but I was out like a light as soon as my head hit the pillow.
"Kira! Kira! What are you doing!"
I could hear Dean and Sam yelling for me, but I couldn't see anything. I couldn't breath. Soon I wasn't able to even hear their voices anymore. I felt so cold, so numb. I managed to look down and I say a little boy holding onto my leg, dragging me deeper into the merky water. I tried to swim to the surface, but I couldn't move.
"No I can't die like this! I don't want to die like this! Hell I don't want to die at all! Not now!" I kept yelling in my head.
"Your going to die! Just like all the others!"
I looked and saw the little boy was talking to me. That's when I realized who it was, 'Jason.'
"You can hear me?" I asked
"Of course I can. It's your fault and you'll die like all the others." He was grinning at me and for some reason it made me feel sick.
"NO NOT LIKE THIS! NO PLEASE! DEAN, SAM PLEASE HELP ME! PLEASE!" I was screaming at the top of my lungs.
"Kira! Kira! Kira wake up! Please wake up!" Dean was shaking me trying to wake me up. Sam went to get a cold towel.
"NO LET ME GO! I DON'T WANNA DIE! LET ME GO!"
Suddenly I was jerked awake. I was breathing hard and sweating well like a pig. I was struggling to get away from Dean not really knowing who he was.
"Kira it's ok." he said while hugging me. "Your ok. Just calm down baby girl."
By this time Sam was at my other side gently rubbing my back to calm me down.
"It's my fault!" I was saying in between the tears. "Oh god it's my fault. I killed him! How did I forget? How COULD I forget?" I think I was mumbling at this point.
Sam and Dean just looked at each other (Ok I dare you to try and keep count of how many tines they look at each other. Bet you can't do it.) trying to understand what I was talking about.
"Kira, who did you kill? What are you talking about?" Sam asked softly. So softly that I barley heard him.
"Jason. I killed him! Oh god I killed Jason." I started crying again, but this time I was crying into Dean chest, hanging onto his shirt sleeve like it was my life line.
Sam got up and yes Googled Jason's name. Dean just held me and stroked my hair telling me it was going to be ok.
"Well...According to a local newspaper in Maine, a boy by the name of Jason McDonald drowned at Crystle Lake when he was 12 years old. Turns out his body was never found. There have been about 10 drowning's at the lake since then. No bodies have been recovered." Sam finished and looked at Dean and I. I was just staring off into space while Dean still held onto me.
"Kira, why do you think you have anything to do with this Jason's death?" Dean asked looking down at me. (I was laying with my head in his lap at this point.)
"Do you remember when I went with dad for that two weeks a couple years ago?" They nodded, "That's where we went. There was a haunting at a local cemetery and dad wanted to check it out by himself. I was staying at the hotel alone when I heard a knock at the door. I asked who it was and it turned out to be Jason, well I didn't know him at the time. We talked for a while untill dad came back. I asked him if I can hang out with Jason and he said yes. He was staying in the room next to us with his parents and older sister. We hung out the entire two weeks we were there. He somehow even convinced his parents to stay for a couple extra days so we can hang out together. Dad was happy that I got to hang out with someone my own age and have fun." I stopped to take a drink of water that Dean offered me.
"Ok so you made a new little friend and what you got pissed and killed him?" I know Dean was trying to be funny, but now was so not the time.
"Not exactly. It was two days before dad and I were going to leave. Jason said something about this lake that he wanted to go swimming in. I wasn't that great of a swimmer then."
"Hell your not that good now!" Dean said with his trademark grin.
"Anyways..." I continues shooting a look at Dean. "So I asked dad if I can go and he, to my surprise, he said yes. I just had to be back by dark. So we went and were having a good time. This lake was only like 10 minutes away so we walked. We were there for about an hour when I saw Jason struggling. Again I wasn't that great a swimmer, but I tried." I was crying at this point. "I tried to grab him, but he sank like a rock. I went under trying my hardest to save him, but I knew it was too late.
Somehow dad showed up and tried to help. How he knew Jason was in trouble I still don't know. He pulled me from the water and I was struggling aginst him. I just wanted to help Jason. Dad just wrapped his arms around me telling me there was nothing I could do. He called the police and I tried to explain what had happend, but I didn't know. To make matters worse I had to face Jason's parents and sister. The police broke the news to them as dad and I were leaving. The said that they couldn't find his body no matter how much they searched. It's my fault! If only I was stronger I could of saved him." I finished my story and looked at Sam and Dean. I was sitting on the bed by myself now. Both Dean and Sam were at the table looking at me.
"Well I still don't see how it's your fault?" Dean asked breaking the silence.
"Because I couldn't save him. I let him die!" I yelled not really meaning too. I was just angry at myself. I'm not sure if I was mad because I killed him or that I forgot. Sam got up and sat next to me.
"It's not your fault you know that. There's nothing you could of done." he said in a very calming voice.
"Well that settles it. We're going to Maine." Dean said as he started packing.
"Wait! What? I can't go back there! Not after all that!" I said kinda pushing Sam out of the way to get to Dean.
"You have to face this. You have to get over it and realize that it wasn't your fault that this Jason kid drowned.
"But Dean..." I was cut off yet again by Sam.
"Dean's right. I think we should go to Maine."
"Sammy! Come on! No!"
"Sorry sis two beats one. Maine here we come." Dean said leaving the room.
I looked over at Sam with pleading eyes.
"Sorry Kira, but I think this will be good for you."
"Sammy did we forget about the dream in which I um well DIE!"
"Don't worry." He said as he wrapped his arm around my shoulder. "Dean and I will be there to keep you safe you know that."
"I guess, but still. I just have a bad feeling about this." I said as I followed Sam out to the car where Dean was waiting.
ONE WEEK LATER MAINE
We got to Maine in one week. Not bad time if I do say so. We all took turnes driving even thought I still don't have a licence yet, but Sam and Dean were tired so they didn't have a choice, but to let me drive. I did good though.
"Ok so where is this lake located?" Dean asked as he got out of the back seat. (Yes Dean was in the back seat of his baby HAHAHA!)
"Well there is a path right behind the motel we're planning on staying at." I said walking away. I really didn't want to be here, but if it'll get rid of these mightmares than it's worth a shot as long as I don't die.
"Wow aren't we the lucky ones." Sam said.
"Kira your turn to get the room." Dean said as he tossed me my bag.
"Fine." I said as I walked to the office.
"One room, two beds please."
I looked up and saw a man about 35 or 40.
"You!" He said rather angry.
"What? Me what?" I was a little confused so I began to back away.
"You killed him! It's your fault he died you little bitch!" The man screamed at me.
"I..um...do I know you?" I was still confused untill...
"You killed Jason! You killed my only son and now you've come back!" He was still screaming at me. He grabbed me by the shoulders and pinned me aginst the wall with such force that I let out a yelp. Dean had seen what was happening and him and Sam came running to the office. The man reached over and locked the door so they couldn't get in. He quickly turned his attation back to me.
"Because of you so many have suffered and died! Why couldn't it have been you and not my Jason!" After he screamed that in my face he threw me aginst he wall on the far side of the office.
'For an old guy he's sure as shit strong.' I thought getting back to my feet. I can see Sam and Dean still trying to get into the office.
"They can't help you! The glass is unbreakable so your all mine." The man said with a smile. He started walking to me. "I've been waiting for this day for a long time. Time for you to feel what it's like to die like, just as my son did." I backed up as far as I can and since I was close to the wall already I only took like 3 steps.
'Come on Kira think. Your a hunter, you've killed things stronger than him. Just think.' but my mind was blank.
By the time I knew it I was being kneed in the stomach and punched in the face. I fell to the ground and felt the blood comming from my nose where he backhanded me. He began kicking my ribs and there was nothing I could do. I could hear Dean shooting the glass, but nothing happened.
'What the hell. I'm gonna be killed by an old guy. Wow this sucks.' those thought kept going through my head untill a kick to the face made me a little woozy. Everything's kinds fuzzy after that. I remember looking up at Sam who was well safe to say PISSED as was Dean. Then I heard the glass shatter and the old guy just went flying. Dean was at my side in a split second. That's the last thing I remember before everything went black.
I woke up in a hotel room. I tried to sit up but the pain was to much. I looked over and saw my brother Dean laying next to me with his arm draped around me pertectively. I looked over and couldn't find Sam anywhere. He came out of the bathroom a second later.
"So how do you feel?" he whispered.
"I've been better." I smiled at him. "What the hell happened? How did you break the glass?"
He just looked at the floor.
"Sammy come on, just tell me how you did it." We were still whispering so not to wake up Dean.
"Well to put it an easy way...like Max."
I looked at him and he almost looked ashamed.
"So you broke it with your mind?" I asked a little shocked.
"Uh-huh." He answered still looking at the ground.
"Thanks." I said finally being able to sit up.
"What?" He said a little shocked as he helped me up.
"If you didn't do that, that old guy would of killed me. Death by old man, so not the way I want to leave this world." I said with a smile.
"I guess your right." He said smiling back.
"No more chick flick moments! I'm begging you!"
We looked over and saw Dean was awake pretending to cry at Sam's and mine "chick-flick moment" Sam just tossed a pillow at him and I just laughed.
"Don't be mad that you couldn't share in the moment dick." I said
"Yea ya jerk." Sam said.
"Bitches." Dean said with a smile as he sat up.
"So we still going to the lake or not?" I asked.
My brothers just looked at me like I was insane.
"You still want to finish this?" Sam asked.
"Yea. Now more than ever."
"Well after mister 'I beat the crap out of my baby sister' was arrested we had to find this motel so we're about a half hour away from the lake." Dean said getting a cup of coffee. "You want any?" he asked me.
"Do we have any Mt. Dew left?"
"Nope. Sam drank the last one while you were sleeping." Dean said with a smirk pointing at Sam.
I looked up at Sam, "Sammy you didn't?"
"Well.." he said rubbing the back of his head, "If you want I can go to the store a grab you one."
"Oh will you? I can so go for the dewey goodness." I said excited.
Dean and Sam just smiled at me.
"You break it, you buy it. Kira already has to pay for a new paint job" Dean said as he tossed his keys to Sam.
"Oh come on I'm injured here! Can't we just let that slide?" I said.
"You weren't injured when you scratched it." Dean smiled.
"Evil, killer, satanic chipmunk remember?" I said as serious as I could, but talking about a evil chipmunk it's a little tricky. Dean just rolled his eyes at my story and tossed Sam his keys.
"Yea yea yea. I'll be back in a little while." Sam said as he left.
I did some research while I waited for Sam to get back with my Dew. Dean just watched Oprah.
Dean looked up from the tv, "What?"
"Nothing dude. It's just funny that you watch Oprah!" I said with a huge grin. Dean just threw a pillow at me and continued watching Oprah. "You know for a guy who hates these so called "chick flick moments" you watch a show that's full of them."
"Whatever. Does dad know you watch this?" I asked sitting on the bed next to him.
"Nope." He said not taking his eyes off lil' ol' Oprah, "And if he finds out I know you told."
"Me? What about Sammy? He knows too."
"Yeah, but he won't say anything. I know you will."
"Whatever." I said as I rolled my eyes. About 5 minutes later Sam came in and tossed me a 2 liter of the dewey goodness.
"What took you so long?" I asked not even bothering to get a glass, but drinking right out of the bottle.
Dean and Sam just rolled there eyes.
"There was a road block. Someone else died at the lake."
At that I stopped drinking. "So we should get there soon then?"
"Yup." Was the only answer Dean gave.
"I guess we'll go tomorrow then. Are you up for it Kira?" Sam asked as I started to drink the Dew again.
"Yea I'm good to go."
The next day we got to the lake at around 6 in the afternoon.
"Ya know Dean, we could of been here eariler, but nooo you had to go and meet a girl." I said as we made our way to the dock.
We were near the dock when I felt something and stopped.
"Hey Kira. You ok?" Sam asked as he waved his hands in front of my face. "Kira. Earth to Kira." Sam glanced at Dean who didn't really know what to do.
"I can't." I snapped out of my happy little trance. "I can't go there. Near the water." For some reason I was shaking.
"It's ok. Sam and I can do this. You just stay here." Dean said in a calming voice.
Sam and Dean went down to the dock and began to search the water.
"So Sammy, and idea how we're going to get rid of this one?" Dean asked as he glanced at Sam.
"It's Sam and nope, no idea."
"I have too. He wants me. I can end this." I was mumbling to myself so low that Dean and Sam couldn't hear. I began to walk down to the water not even realizing that I was moving. I made it to the shore and started to enter the water. I felt the coldness and for some reason never stopped. I remember hearing my brother's yell for me to stop, but I never did. I just kept going untill I was completly under water. I felt something grab my ankle and drag me farther away from shore and deeper under water.
"Kira! Kira! What the hell are you doing! KIRA!" Dean and Sam were both screaming at me.
I could barley make out their words.
'Wait. Whatt the hell AM I doing? I don't wanna die not like this. Not now!' I was thinking. Then I began to struggle aginst whatever or whoever was holding me. I knew it was Jason, but aside from that I had no idea what I was going to do. My lungs were burning from the lack of oxygen. 'I'm so cold! I can't do this! I can't hang on! I can't fight this!' I looked down and saw Jason, just how he was when we were younger.
"Your going to suffer just like me! You going to die just like me! You left me to die! You never cared! You never tried to help me!"
He was so angry at me, but wait I tried to help him. I dove in and tried to save him.
"I'm sorry Jason. I tried to save you, but I wasn't strong enough to help you. Your right, you died because of me and I deserve this! I deserve to die just like you."
Jason looked up at me and almost looked sad. He then let go of my ankle.
"No. I never knew you tried to save me. My parents kept visiting this sight and kept saying that it was your fault that I died. I just started believing it. I'm sorry Kira. I hope you'll be ok." And just like that he was gone. I just didn't have the strength to swim to the surface.
'I'm gonna die like this? Wow that sucks doesn't it. First the old guy and now a kid! A dead kid none the less' Then I felt something wrap around me and pull me to shore. I couldn't feel anything after that. I was so cold, so numb.
"Kira, come on baby girl. You can't leave us! You can't die on us! Please open your eyes!" Dean was begging me to open my eyes, but I just couldn't.
The paramedic's showed up 10 minutes later and began working on me. The put me in the ambulance and Sam rode with me while Dean drove to the hospital where the doctors continued to work on me. They told my brother's to wait in the waiting room and that someone would be out when they knew something.
ONE HOUR LATER
"She has to be ok. She just has to be." Dean was mumbling as he paced back and forth.
"She will man, but you have to sit down. Your starting to make me sick." Sam said, but just then a doctor came into the waiting room. Sam and Dean jumped at the poor guy and began asking tons of questions.
"Guy's hang on and I'll tell you all I know." The doctor began. "I think you two should have a seat."
Sam and Dean sat down and waited for the doctor to continue.
"Well it turn's out that, Kira is it?" Dean and Sam nodded. "Kira was under water for a prolong peroid of time. A human brain can't take that long without oxygen. I'm sorry, but I'm afraid Kira's in a coma and the chances of her comming around are pretty slim. Her lungs were damaged as were her kidneys. It doesn't look good. I'm sorry." and with that he left. Sam and Dean just sat there in shock.
"How can this happen? I'm supposed to protect her and I let her down." Dean layed his head in his hands and for the first time in a long time he cried. Sam just hugged his brother and cried along with him. They stayed that way for about a half hour when a nurse came out and said that they can see their baby sister. Dean got up first and Sam slowly followed. They went into the room that was filled with machines that were keeping Kira alive. Dean pulled up a chair and grabbed his little sister's hand and began to speak softly to her.
"Kira? I don't know if you can hear me, but you have to pull through this. Your strong, hell your a Winchester you can do this." He spoke so softly as tears rolled down his eyes.
Sam just stood there looking at his younger sibling. 'How can this be happening?' was his only thought at that moment. He looked at the machine that was monitering her heart rate and her pulse. He glanced at the tubes that were placed in her mouth to help her breath. She just looked so helpless, so small. He slid up a chair so he was sitting on the opposite side of Dean. He could barley make out what Dean was saying to her.
"Please baby girl. I know you can do this. I know you can. Please Kira please."
ONE WEEK LATER
"I'm sorry, but her condition hasn't changed. Maybe you should consider letting her go." The doctor said to Dean. Sam saw it comming a mile away and quickly took action stepping in between the doctor and his older brother. He knew Dean was about to rip off the poor doctors head for suggesting that they kill their sister. "It would be better for her. I don't think that she'll ever wake up."
"SO YOU THINK WHAT THAT WE SHOULD JUST PULL THE PLUG AND FORGET ABOUT HER! JUST FORGET THAT THAT'S OUR BABY SISTER LAYING THERE AND JUST GIVE UP! NO! SHE'S GOING TO WAKE UP! I KNOW IT! SHE WOULD NEVER GIVE UP AND NEITHER ARE WE!" Dean screamed at the poor man so loud that the whole hospital heard him.
"I'm not saying that your killing her, it's just..." The doctor was cut off by Dean again.
"You do realize that if you finish that sentance that you'll regret it right?" Dean had fire in his eyes. The doctor saw this and quickly walked out of the room after mumbling a "sorry". Dean sat down again next to his sister's bed. It's true she was still the same as she was when they first arrived, but he couldn't let her go. He would gladly give up his own life if it would save her, but he knew that wasn't an option. He glanced over at Sam who had quickly fallen asleep in a chair after the doctor left.
"Maybe it would be better." he said as he looked at Kira. Little did he know that Kira heard everything.
INSIDE KIRA'S HEAD
"Um ok this is weird." She said aloud as she looked around. "I know I heard that. They're going to kill me! No I'm still alive! Oh crap I can't let them pull that plug, but how the hell can I let them know?"
"Kira? Kira baby is that you?"
I looked up and saw my mother. "Mom? Is that you mom?"
"Yes baby it's me. You have to listen to me because there's not alot of time."
"Tell me about it! They're going to kill me!" I told my mom.
"I know. They don't think you'll ever wake up, but I know you will. You just need time."
"How do I let them know?" I asked my mother.
"Sam." Was her answer.
"Um Sam? Ok you lost me there." I said a little confused.
"You and Sam are extreamly close. I know he has a gift and you can use that to talk to him, but you can only do it while he's asleep. You can do it now."
"All you have to do is concentrate hard and he'll hear you. I have to go baby, but I'll always be watching over all of you. I love you all so much." And with that she was gone. (And yes it was my birth mother. She had a blurry face though since I was so young when she died that I don't remember her face. Weird huh?)
"Mom? Mommy? Don't leave! I'm scared! Please!" After a while of begging her to come back, I tried to talk to Sam. "Wait Ok just concentrate. Ok"
I closed my eyes and thought hard about talking to Sam.
"Sammy? Sammy? Can you hear me Sammy?" I said aloud. "Sammy you can't let them turn off those machines! I'm still alive! I'm still here. It's just..I just can't find my way back. I need time, I need help. I'm lost Sammy. Please Sammy don't let them kill me! Please!"
IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM
I looked over and saw Sam. I guessed he was having a nightmare just by the way he was moving around. I looked back at Kira. "Kira I'm sorry, but maybe it's for the best to just let you go. I just don't want you to suffer anymore." I felt like crying just thinking about letting her go. I was about to get the doctor and tell them to turn everything off when Sam grabbed my arm.
"What the hell man? Was your dream that bad?" I asked.
"No you can't let her die. She's still alive! She's still here." He as sweating and crying. "She's just lost and can't find her way back. We need to help her Dean. We have to."
"Um You wanna slow down a little bit here Sammy. What do you mean she's lost?" I ask a little confused.
"She came to me while I was sleeping. She said that she know's your going to pull the plug on her, but she's still here. She can't seem to find her way back. She's so scared Dean." Sam confesed to me.
"Ok so if she's still alive than how do we help her?"
"I...um..don't know." Sam said looking sadly at the floor.
"I do." They heard a voice and turned to the door to see...
"Dad?" I asked already knowing the answer.
"Hey boys. I found out what happened from Missouri. I've been looking for a way to reach her since she's been here. I'm just happy you didn't do anything rash." My father said to us.
I think Sam was still in shock that our father was standing there.
"So how do we help her?" I finally asked.
"Only Sam can." He said and looked at Sam.
"What? Why me?" Sam finally said something.
"Because of the gift that you have. Yes boys I know all about it, but we'll talk about that after we save your sister."
Dad explained that Sam was going to lead Kira back to this plain and that I had to be his ancore so he wouldn't get lost along with Kira.
"Ok so let's do this then." Sam said wanting to get his sister back as soon as possible.
"I'll keep a look out while you boys get her back, but you have to hurry. There is a time limit on this ok." Our dad said as he took a seat by the door. Sam and I just looked at each other and began doing what we were supposed to do. Sam grabbed Kira's hand and I grabbed his. Sam closed his eyes and began concentraiting on what he was supposed to do. I watched nervously as Sam began talking to Kira.
INSIDE KIRA'S HEAD
"KIRA! KIRA! WHERE ARE YOU KIRA!" I was yelling for her, but I got nothing back. I could feel Dean holding me to make sure I came back. I was wondering around for what felt like days and then I saw her. She was curled up under a tree and she was shaking. I quickly ran up to her and lightly touched her on the shoulder.
"Kira can you hear me? It's Sam. Kira?"
"Sammy?" She asked as she turned twords me.
"Yea Kira it's me. We're getting you out of here ok."
She just nodded her head.
"Sammy I'm tired and cold. I just want to sleep." She whispered to me.
"I know, but you can't. Not yet ok. Can you walk?" I asked. She shook her head no. She looked like she could barley keep her eyes open let alone walk on her own. "Ok Kira I'm gonna carry you then. Just hang on a little longer and then you can sleep as much as you want I promise. When you wake up dad's gonna be there."
She turned her head and looked up at me, 'God she looks so pale.'
"Dad's there? Really?" She said with a slight smile.
"Yup. Come on it's time to go ok." She nodded and I began to carry her.
"Um Sammy, How do we get out of here?" She asked.
"Shit good question. Dad never told me that." 'Maybe I shouldn't of said that out loud.'
"Ha so you have no idea." she laughed, but it was weak.
"Well I have one so just bare with me ok." She nodded. "DEAN! HEY DEAN MAN! I THINK NOW IT'S TIME TO DO YOUR JOB AND PULL US OUT!" I waited fo a minute and tried again, "ANY TIME NOW WOULD BE GREAT DEAN!"
BACK IN THE HOSPITAL ROOM
"I know I heard him. Ok guess it's my turn." I looked up at my dad and he just nodded.
"Ok Sam time to come back ok! I know you can hear me so it's time to wake up now. Time to bring her home." Right after I got done saying that I saw Sam open his eyes and look at me. "How you doin' bitch?"
"Fine jerk. Did she wake up yet?" He asked. We both looked at Kira and she hasn't moved.
"Dad do you think it worked?" I heard Sam ask, but my eyes were fixed on Kira's sleeping form.
"It should boys. Just give her time ok." He said as he placed his hand on Kira's.
THE NEXT DAY
I slowly opened my eyes, but the bright sun made me close them quickly. I felt something in my hand so I squeezed it and to my suprise it squeezed back. I slowly opened my eyes again and came face to face with my father. I tried to talk to him, but I couldn't. Something was in my mouth and I started to panic. I didn't know what it was, but I wanted it out. I wanted to speak to my father. I felt something on my head and looked up to see Sam placing his hand on my forehead. (He always used to do this when we were younger to calm me down and it still works.) I looked around the room and saw that Dean was there too.
"Hey Kira. Nice to know your still with us." Sam said with tears in his eyes, but I couldn't take my eyes off Dean. I know he was crying and I guess I was just pissed that I didn't see it. 'Damn a chick flick moment and I missed it!' I thought.
"Baby girl you ok?" Dean finally asked.
I slowly nodded and motioned for a piece of paper and a pen. Dad quickly got me one and I began to write.
Can you get this tube out of my mouth any time soon? I wrote.
"Not yet baby girl. They have to check you out first and make sure you can breath on your own." Dean answered. 'Why is it that it doesn't feel weird when he calls me baby girl, but if anyone else does it's just odd.' I thought.
How long have I been out?
"Well about a week or two." Sam answered.
Wow. So Dean looks like you were crying. Oprah getting that emotional?
"Funny bitch." He said with a smile.
"You watch Oprah?" My dad asked.
"I...a well...Kira's up!"
Nice cover dick :)
"Hey watch your mouth young lady." My dad scolded me and just laughed.
Sammy What's wrong?
"Nothing. Just happy your awake." He said with tears in his eyes.
Dean you were going to pull the plug! Oh when I get out of here your ass is mine!
"Oh bring it on!" At that point the doctor came in the room.
"Well I see your awake! That's amazing! What do you say we take that tube out now huh." He said
"Ok your going to have to take a deep breath and hold it, then on the count of three let it out ok."
I nodded again. He grabbed the end of the breathing tube and started counting.
"Ok ready one, two, three!" And with that he pulled out the tube and I started coughing. Dean hurried and got me a glass of water and helped me take a couple sips.
"Ok now no talking just whispering for now ok. I'll be back to check on you later ok." The doctor said and then he left.
I tries sitting up and Sam saw me struggle so he hurried to help me.
"Thanks Sammy." I whispered.
"No problem little sister." He said with a smile.
"Hey Sammy?" I motioned for him to lean down so I can whisper to him.
He listened, nodded and then said he'll be back. Dean and dad just looked at each other and then back at me.
"What?" I whispered.
"Nothing." they both said.
About ten minutes later Sam came back with a bag of stuff.
"What the hell did you get?" Dean asked. Sam opened the back and dumped out two 2 liters of Mt. Dew, two bags of plain and peanut M&M's, some Kit-Kats, and a container of cheese fries extra cheese. Everyone just smiled and looked at me.
"What? I've been asleep for how long? I'm thirsty and hungry so sue me." I said with a grin as I started to eat my cheesy fries. YUMMY!
TWO WEEKS LATER
I was able to leave the hospital and was in good health. I never told Dean, Sam, or my dad about seeing mom. I was wondering how they found me and brought me out, but I'm too scared to ask. By noon we were on the road again. Dad left again at least this time he said good-bye.
"So where are we off to this time?" I asked Dean from the driver's seat. Yes I said the driver's seat. (OH YEAH KIRA GETS TO DRIVE DEAN'S BABY EVEN AFTER SCRATCHING IT! GO ME! I guess almost dieing has it's perks!) I do still have to pay for the new paint job, but hey Sammy'll chip in I know it.
"Well there are signs of vampire's in Idaho and signs of werewolves in Texas so take your pick." Sam said from the passanger seat. (Oh yeah you guessed it again DEAN'S IN THE BACK SEAT OF HIS BABY! AGAIN!)
"Well when Miss Kurt Busch tones it down a little bit maybe I'll answer you." Dean said from the back seat. (HAHA Dean's in the back and I'm scareing him! My life rocks!)
"Oh I think someone's a wee bit nervous back there." I said as I glanced over at Sam. He just gave me a look like 'Oh-I-know-what-your-thinking.
"Hey Dean hows this." I said and I pushed down the gas petal down to the floor. Dean was freaking out in the back and Sam was reaching for his seat belt. Me I was just laughing at my two older brother who will do anything for me and I would do anything for them. I lifted off the gas and Dean calmed down. "So how bout the vampires then." I said with a smile. They both nodded and we were off to Idaho.
