Seven Months and twelve schools later, Kara couldn't take it anymore. She had attended almost two schools a month and she hated the constant moving. She never told John or Dean about it, but she constantly called Sam and Angel and ranted to them, who always listened.
It was June and she just got out of her twelfth school for Summer. The second school finished, John packed them up and sent them on two different hunts before Kara couldn't hold it in anymore.
It was around eleven at night and they just finished another hunt when John told them they were going half way across the country again.
"No." Kara said simply and defiantly.
"What did you just say?" John asked, turning to look at her.
"I said no." Kara repeated.
"Never talk back to me. You're my child and you'll do as I say." John said as calmly as he could before heading for the motel door.
"Dad, I'm still in school. Just one more year and I want to finish it in one school. Sam and Dean got to attend all four years at a school, why can't I?" Kara half yelled.
"Because we can't stay in one place for too long." John said.
"Okay, how bout I stay in one place and you leave every other week." Kara said angrily.
"Kara, don't use that tone with me." John said, raising his voice.
"Why the hell not?" Kara yelled.
"Okay, lets all calm down." Dean said, trying to calm his father and his sister, like he'd done before.
"Because I'm your father." John yelled back.
"Then start acting like it instead of acting like my fuckin drill sergeant!" Kara yelled, unable to keep the words from coming out. John moved to strike his daughter but Dean stepped between them.
"That's enough!" Dean yelled. John lowered his hand and Kara just continued glaring at him.
"Just because Sam left doesn't mean you can keep ordering me around, thinking that I'll just drop out of school if you move us around enough." Kara said in a slightly quieter tone. "You got to graduate, they got to graduate, why can't I?"
"Because I said so." John answered.
"It's not fair you son of a…" Kara was cut off by Dean covering her mouth with his hand.
"I said that's enough." Dean said, mostly to Kara.
"Fuck this." Kara muttered, getting away from Dean and moving for the door.
"Where the hell do you think you're going?" John yelled, grabbing her arm.
"Away from here!" Kara yelled, running out of the room and away from her father as fast as she could. She ran about half a mile she guessed before coming to a stop at a park. She sat on a bench that was hidden by a few trees and pulled her knees up to her chest. She started crying against her will and tried to push the tears back.
"Crying's for kids. I'm not supposed to cry. Stop crying damnit." Kara muttered to herself. She felt a hand on her arm and immediately flinched away.
"It's just me." Dean said, sitting down next to her.
"How'd you know where I'd be?" Kara asked, wiping the tears away.
"You've loved parks since you were four. Figured you'd look for one, far enough away from dad but close enough so you didn't have to go far." Dean shrugged.
"Great, I'm fuckin predictable." Kara muttered, looking down. "I can't do all this moving anymore. I can't. Don't yell at me but I won't just a small bit of normalcy. That's not too much to ask at my age."
"It's not." Dean said, hugging her. "You shouldn't have to be a hunter."
"But I like hunting, I just want to take a year off. Not even a whole year. We can hunt on the weekends, like we used to." Kara said.
"I'm sorry you can't." Dean said, wishing he could let his little sister have a demon free life. He had a plan forming in his head, though. He would call Angel and then she could stay with him for the year. He didn't like the idea of Kara living with her ex, but it was the only thing he could come up with. "We should get back."
"Of course we should." Kara said bitterly, standing up and walking back toward the motel. She didn't want to go back but she knew she didn't have a choice.
When they got back, they found John sitting at the table. Kara ignored him and moved to her bag, looking through it for some pajamas to change into.
"You're right." John said softly.
"About what?" Kara asked, not looking up.
"I should start acting like your father, not your drill sergeant." John told her.
"Well no shit." Kara muttered. John just ignored that little comment.
"So after our next hunt, we'll settle down for a little while, somewhere where you can finish high school." John finished.
"Really?" Kara asked, looking up. John just nodded. Kara smiled and ran over to her father, hugging him. "Thanks dad." She pulled away and looked up at him with a small smile. "Where's the next hunt?"
'Please say California.' Kara hoped.
"Pennsylvania." John told her. Her smile fell slightly but not much.
"When do we leave?" Kara asked.
"In two days. After the hunt, we'll see if we can find an apartment." Kara's smile widened, happy that there'd be no more motels.
"Kara, down." Dean yelled. Kara instinctively fell to the ground as Dean shot the werewolf that was behind her. It fell down dead beside her and Kara scrambled to get away from it.
"Son of a bitch." Kara muttered, dusting off her clothes as Dean came up beside her.
"You okay?" Dean asked.
"No, my leg hurts now." Kara said, touching the spot she was sure would be bruised in a while.
"Sorry to hear it. Lets go." Dean said, grabbing his gun and walking back to the Impala.
"I heard you sister complain. I'm guessing you got it." John said, standing next to his Chevy truck.
"Hey, I take offense to that." Kara muttered, crossing her arms.
"Yeah, I got it." Dean said, standing by the driver side door.
"Alright, lets get back to the motel and then tomorrow we'll look for an apartment." John said, making Kara smile. She couldn't believe that he was actually going to go through with this.
The next afternoon, the three of them went to apartments, trying to find a place where they could all live where no one would bother them.
They found a small one about a mile away from the high school Kara would be attending. It was a three bedroom apartment on the third floor of the building. They were told they could move in in about a week. John sighed the papers and then they left for Bobby's house where they left all their stuff from the old apartment. They decided to stay with him for a few days before heading back. Kara was happy that they were finally going to settle down for a bit. She wished it would've been in L.A. but she could deal with Philadelphia.
So yeah, that's the end of this story. There will be a sequal up, hopefully by this weekend. It's gonna be called Boy Meets Girl and if you put two and two together, you'll know what it'll cross over with.
