Final Chapter! Remember, I only own Jenn Santos and I co-own Mia Alexander and her unborn baby with Bree!
Dean sat in the room, staring at Sam and Jenn as they laid on two cots. Bobby walked in the house to see Mia sitting at the table, staring into nothing and noticed Dean staring at his brother and girlfriend.
"Dean? Mia? Brought you this back." Bobby said, showing them a bucket of chicken.
"No, thanks. I'm fine." Dean replied.
"You should eat something. Especially you Mia, you need to feed the baby."
"I said I'm fine." Dean said.
"Ditto." Mia added.
"Guys...I hate to bring this up, I really do. But don't you think maybe it's time...we bury Sam and Jenn." Bobby said.
"No." Dean replied.
"We could maybe..."
"What? Torch their corpses? Not yet."
"I want you guys to come with me."
"I'm not going anywhere."
"Would you cut me some slack?"
"I just don't think you should be alone, that's all. I gotta admit, I could use your help."
"He's not alone..." Mia said quietly.
"Somethin' big is going down- end-of-the world big."
"Well, then let it end!" Dean yelled.
"You don't mean that."
"You don't think so? Huh? You don't think I've given enough? You don't think I've paid enough? I'm done with it. All of it. And if you know what's good for you, turn around, take Mia and get the hell out of here. Go!" He pushed Bobby on the shoulder in anger as tears formed in Bobby's eyes. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Please, just go."
"Come on Mia." Bobby said to the pregnant hunter. Mia knew better than to fight with Dean, so she quietly walked out the door. "You know where I'll be."
Dean heard the door close as he continued to stare at Jenn and Sam's bodies, allowing a tear to fall from his eye. He slowly walked back into the room and sat back on the chair.
"You know, I remember the first day I met you, Jenn. I know all I wanted from you at that time was sex, but the more I got to know you, the more my feelings began to grow. I never thought I was capable of having feelings like the ones you give me. I thought I found love with Cassie, but it didn't compare to what I have…had with you. For the first time in my life I considered something normal with you. I love you so much, so how am I supposed to let—" Dean started before he cut himself off.
"Sammy, you know, when we were little, you couldn't been more than 5, you just started asking questions. How come we didn't have a mom? Why do we always have to move around? Where'd Dad go when he'd take off for days at a time? I remember I begged you- 'Quit asking, Sammy. Man, you don't want to know'. I just wanted you to be a kid...Just for a little while longer. I always tried to protect you...Keep you safe...Dad didn't even need to tell me. It was just always my responsibility, you know? It's like I had one job... I had one job... And I screwed it up. I blew it. And for that, I'm sorry. I guess that's what I do. I let down the people I love. I let Dad down. I let Jenn down. And now I guess I'm just supposed to let you down, too. How can I? How am I supposed to live with that? What am I supposed to do? Sammy. God. What am I supposed to do? What am I supposed to do?" Dean yelled as he repeated the question one final time, kicking the side of the bed.
Dean walked out of the room and grabbed his jacket and keys. He took off from the house, driving like a mad man. He stopped in the middle of a dirt road, rounding to the trunk of the impala. He took a box and threw some things inside of it, including a photo ID of himself. He walked to the center of the dirt road and buried the box.
He looked around the crossroads, waiting for something to happen.
"Oh come on already. Show your face, you bitch!" Dean yelled.
"Easy sugar, you'll wake the neighbors. Dean. It's so, so good to see you. I mean it. Look at you. Gone and got your family and girlfriend killed. All alone in the world. It's too sweet. Excuse me, you're gonna have to give me a moment. Sometimes you gotta stop and smell the roses." The Crossroads Demon said appearing behind him.
"I should send you straight back to hell."
"Oh, you should. But you won't. And I know why."
"Yeah. Following in Daddy's footsteps. You wanna make a deal. Little Sammy and Jenny Santos back from the dead, and-let me guess- you're offering up your own soul?"
"There are a hundred other demons who'd love to get their hands on it. And it's all yours. And all you got to do is bring them back. And give me ten years- ten years, and then you come for me."
"You must be joking."
"That's the same deal you give everybody else."
"You're not everybody else. Why would I want to give you anything? Just keep your gutter soul. It's too tarnished, anyway."
"You keep going, I'll keep saying no."
"Okay, five years. Five years, and my bill comes due. That's my last offer- five years or no deal."
"Then no deal."
"Fine." She turned and walked away. "Make sure you bury Sam and Jenn before they start stinking up the joint."
"Wait." Dean called.
"It's a fire sale, and everything must go."
"What do I have to do?"
"First of all, quit groveling. Needy guys are such a turnoff. Look...Look, I shouldn't be doing this. I could get in a lot of trouble. But what can I say? I got a blind spot for you, Dean. You're like a... puppy. You're just too fun to play with. I'll do it."
"You'll bring them back?"
"I will. And because I'm such a saint, I'll give you one year. And one year only. But here's the thing. If you try and welch or weasel your way out, then the deal is off. Sam and Jenn drop dead. They're back to rotten meat in no time. So...it's a better deal than your dad ever got. What do you say?"
Dean took a moment to think it over. He looked at the demon and grabbed her, kissing her to seal the deal.
Sam's eyes opened wide as he sat up on the mattress. He looked around as he breathed heavily. First thing he noticed was Jenn laying next to him. Suddenly, he got started when she woke up the same way he did.
"Where are we?" Jenn asked as her breathing slowed.
"I don't know." Sam replied. "What happened?"
"Um…I remember Jake, the fight…he stabbed you and then me. That's it."
Sam got up from his bed and went over to the mirror. He lifted his shirt and examined his back, noticing a scar on his back. Jenn checked her chest and found a scar there too. She then went over to Sam to look at his scar for a moment.
Before they could question it further, they heard the door open and saw Dean walk into the room.
"Sammy. Jenn." Dean said as he walked up to both of them.
"Hey." Sam and Jenn said in unison.
Dean pulled both of them into one tight embrace.
"Ow. Uh, Dean…" Sam started.
"I'm sorry. I'm sorry, man. I'm just...I'm just happy to see both of you up and around, that's all. Come on, sit down." Dean said as he let them go.
"Okay. Dean...what happened to us?"
"Well, what do you remember?"
"I-I saw you, Mia and Bobby, and...I felt this pain. This sharp pain, like...like, white-hot, you know, and then you started running at me, and...that's about it." Sam replied as they sat down.
"Yeah, that- that kid, stabbed you in the back and stabbed Jenn in the chest. You guys lost a lot of blood. It was pretty touch and go for awhile."
"Dean, you can't patch up a wound that bad." Jenn said.
"No, Bobby could. Who was that kid, anyway?"
"His name's Jake. Did you get him?"
"No, he disappeared into the woods."
"We got to find him, Dean. And I swear I'm gonna tear that son of a bitch apart." Sam said, standing up and heading to the door.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Easy there, Van Damme. You just woke up, all right? Let's get you something to eat. Huh? You guys want something to eat?" Sam and Jenn exchanged a look and nodded. "I'm starving. Come on."
The table was filled with various food, ranging from Chinese to pizza as Sam and Jenn told Dean what happened.
"And that's when you guys showed up." Sam said, finishing the story.
"That's awful. Poor Andy." Dean replied.
"That's not all Dean..." Jenn said.
"What do you mean?"
"I have abilities...like him..."
"The demon got to me later in life, but I have abilities like Sam."
"What can you do?"
Dean looked around the table before picking up a plastic spoon.
"Then break it or whatever."
Dean watched as the spoon was bent far enough to break. He put the other half down as he stared at it for a moment.
"Well, I'll be damned." Dean said to himself.
"The demon said he only wanted one of us to walk out alive." Sam said, changing the subject.
"He told you that?"
"Yep. He appeared in a dream."
"He tell you anything else?"
"No. No. That was it. Nothing else. You know, what I don't get, Dean, is if the demon only wanted one of us, then how did Jake, Jenn and I get away?"
"Well, I mean, they left you guys for dead. I'm sure they thought it was over. So now that Yellow Eyes has Jake, what's he gonna do with him?"
"I don't know. But whatever it is, we gotta stop him." Jenn said.
"Well, hold on. You guys need to get your rest. We got time."
"No, we don't."
"Jenn, oceans aren't boiling, okay? Frogs aren't raining from the sky. Let's get you your strength back first."
"Well did you call the roadhouse? Do they know anything?"
"What is it?"
"The roadhouse burned to the ground. Ash is dead. Probably Ellen…a lot of other hunters, too."
"Demons?" Sam asked.
"Yeah, we think so. We think because Ash found something."
"What did he find?"
"Bobby and Mia are working on that right now."
"Well, come on then. Bobby's only a few hours away."
Sam and Jenn got up but were stopped by Dean.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Stop, Sam, stop. Damn it. You and Jenn almost died there. I mean, what would I have- you just take care of yourself for a little bit, huh? Just for a little bit?"
"I'm sorry. No."
"Fine." Dean said.
Sam knocked on the door to Bobby's place. And sure enough, Bobby opened the other side, looking at Sam and Jenn in surprise.
"Hey, Bobby." Sam and Jenn said in unison.
"Sam...Jenn... It's good to see... you up and around." Bobby replied slowly.
"Yeah, well... thanks for patching me up." Sam said, walking in the house as Bobby moved over.
"Don't mention it."
"Thanks Bobby." Jenn said, hugging him before going inside.
"Well Sam and Jenn are better. And we're back in it now, so...what do you know?" Dean said, following Jenn and Sam as Bobby glared at him.
When Dean walked into the library, he saw Mia hugging the two of them.
"Well, I found something. But I'm not sure what the hell it means." Bobby said as he walked into the room.
"What is it?" Sam asked.
"Demonic omens...like a frickin' tidal wave. Cattle deaths. Lightening storms. They skyrocketed from out of nowhere. Here. All around here, except for one place...Southern Wyoming."
"Yeah. That one area's totally clean…spotless. It's almost as if..." Mia said.
"The demons are surrounding it."
"But either of you don't know why?" Dean asked.
"No, and by this point mine and Mia's eyes are swimming. Sam, Jenn, would you take a look at it? Maybe you could catch something I couldn't." Bobby said.
"Yeah, sure." Jenn replied with a shrug.
"Come on, Dean. I got some more books in the truck. Help me lug 'em in. Mia, would you mind helping too?"
"Yeah." Dean said.
Dean followed Mia and Bobby into the junkyard. He was surprised by how fast Bobby angrily turned to face him.
"You stupid ass! What did you do? What did you do?" Bobby yelled as he gave Dean a push. "You made a deal...For Sam and Jenn, didn't you? How long did they give you?"
"Bobby..." Dean started.
"Damn it, Dean." Mia said, pinching the bridge of her nose.
"Which is why we gotta find this yellow-eyed son of a bitch. That's why I'm gonna kill him myself. I got nothing to lose now, right?"
"I could throttle you!" Bobby said angrily, grabbing Dean by the collar of his jacket.
"And send me downstairs ahead of schedule?"
"What is it with you Winchesters, huh? You, your dad. You're both just itching to throw yourselves down the pit." Bobby said as he let go of Dean.
"That's my point. Dad brought me back, Bobby. I'm not even supposed to be here. At least this way, something good could come out of it, you know? It's like my life could mean something."
"What? And it didn't before? Have you got that low of an opinion of yourself? Are you that screwed in the head?" Mia said, grabbing Dean this time.
"I couldn't let them die, Mia. I couldn't. They're my family." Dean replied as he almost started crying.
"How're Sam and Jenn gonna feel when they know you're going to hell? How'd you feel when you knew your dad went for you?" Mia let go of Dean with tears in her eyes.
"You can't tell them. You two can take a shot at me. Whatever you got to do, but please don't tell them." Dean pleaded.
Bobby and Mia began to cry, Bobby sadly grabbing Dean's chin. Before anything else could be said, they heard a noise from a distant part of the junkyard. Immediately, the three hunters hide behind a car, grabbing the intruder as they passed by. Dean turned the intruder to face him, recognizing her.
""Ellen? Ellen. Oh, God." Dean said, hugging her as she cried.
Bobby poured some holy water in a shot glass, pushing towards Ellen.
"Bobby, is this really necessary?" Ellen asked.
"Just a belt of Holy Water, shouldn't hurt." Bobby replied.
Ellen took the shot before setting it down, having no effect on her.
"Whiskey now, if you don't mind."
"Ellen, what happened? How'd you get out?" Dean asked.
"I wasn't supposed to. I was supposed to be in there with everybody else. But we ran out of pretzels, of all things. It was just dumb luck." Ellen replied, drinking the shot of whiskey Bobby poured her. "Anyway, that's when Ash called. Panic in his voice. He told me to look in the safe. Then the call cut out. By the time I got back, the flames were sky-high. And everybody was dead. I couldn't have been gone more than fifteen minutes."
"Sorry, Ellen." Sam said.
"A lot of good people died in there. And I got to live. Lucky me."
"Ellen, you mentioned a safe." Mia said.
"A hidden safe we keep in the basement."
"Demons get what was in it?"
Ellen pulled out a map from her jacket pocket and unfolded it, setting it onto the table. They noticed several blacks lines and X's on it. Bobby immediately went to his book shelf and pulled out a book.
"Wyoming. What does that mean?" Jenn asked.
"I don't believe it." Bobby said after he looked into one of his book.
"What? You got something?" Sam asked as Bobby set down the book.
"A lot more than that. Each of these X's is an abandoned frontier church- all mid 19th century. And all of them built by Samuel Colt."
"Samuel Colt-the demon-killing, gunmaking Samuel Colt?" Dean asked.
"Yep. And there's more. He built private railway lines connecting church to church. It just happens to lay out like this."
Bobby grabbed a sharpie and connected the points on the map.
"Tell me that's not what I think it is." Jenn said.
"It's a Devil's Trap. A 100-square mile Devil's Trap."
"That's brilliant. Iron lines demons can't cross."
"I've never heard of anything that massive." Ellen said.
"No one has." Bobby said.
"And after all these years none of the lines are broken? I mean, it still works?" Mia asked.
"Definitely." Sam replied.
"How do you know?"
"All those omens Bobby found. I mean the demons, they must be circling and they can't get in."
"Yeah, well...they're trying."
"Why? What's inside?" Ellen asked.
"That's what I've been looking for. And, uh, there's nothing except an old cowboy cemetery right in the middle." Dean said.
"Well what's so important about a cemetery or...what's Colt trying to protect?" Mia asked.
"Unless what?" Bobby asked.
"What if Colt wasn't trying to keep the demons out? What if he was trying to keep something in?"
"Well that's a comforting thought." Ellen said.
"Yeah, you think?"
"Could they do it, Bobby? Could they get inside?" Sam asked.
"This thing's so powerful, you'd practically need an A-bomb to destroy it. No way a full-blood demon gets across." Bobby replied.
"No." Jenn said before pausing and looking over to Sam. "But I know who could."
Sam's brows unfurrowed in realization. Jake.
Ellen, Bobby, Jenn, Dean, Mia and Sam his behind tombstones as they heard the gate to the cemetery open. They heard footsteps head towards the crypt.
"Howdy, Jake." Sam said, as the rest of the hunters surrounded Jake, their guns aimed at him.
"Wait...you were dead. I killed you." Jake said in shock.
"Yeah? Well next time, finish the job."
"I did. I cut clean through your spinal cord, man. And you." Jake said to Jenn. "I punctured your lung. You should have drowned in your blood." Sam and Jenn looked over at Dean. "You can't be alive. You can't be."
"Okay, just take it real easy there, son." Bobby said.
"And if I don't?"
"Wait and see." Sam warned.
"What, you a tough guy all of a sudden? What are you gonna do? Kill me?"
"It's a thought."
"He won't do it, I will." Jenn added.
"You had your chance. You couldn't." Jake said.
"I won't make that mistake twice." Sam said, causing Jake to laugh.
"What are you smiling at, you little bitch?" Dean asked.
"Hey ladies, do me a favor. Put those guns to your heads." Jake said, watching Ellen and Mia struggle not to put their guns to their heads. "See that Ava girl was right. Once you give in to it, there's all sorts of new Jedi mind tricks you can learn."
Jenn figured she would try and use her telekinesis to help Mia and Ellen, but she found that Jake's power was too strong.
"Let them go." Sam warned, cocking his gun.
"Shoot him." Ellen said, voice trembling
"You'll be mopping up skull before you get a shot off. Everybody, put your guns down. Except you, ladies. You too, Jenn." Jake said, causing Jenn, Sam, Bobby and Dean to reluctantly drop their guns. "Okay. Thank you."
Jake quickly turned around and pulled the Colt out of his pocket. When he inserted the Colt into the hole on the crypt door, Dean and Bobby quickly grabbed Ellen as Jenn grabbed at Mia before they could shoot themselves. Sam picked up his gun and shot Jake four times in the back. Jake fell to the ground, watching helplessly as Sam walked over to him.
"Please...don't. Please." Jake pleaded.
Not hearing it, Sam shot Jake 3 more times in the chest, killing him. The six hunters watched as two separate engravings on the crypt spun in different directions before stopping, matching up.
"Oh, no." Bobby said.
"Bobby, what is it?" Ellen asked.
Dean pulled the Colt out of the hole in the Crypt.
"Take cover, now!" Bobby called.
Everyone ran and took cover behind a tombstone as the doors of the crypt burst open. A large black cloud erupted from the other side, shooting outward. The demons broke the Devil's Trap, escaping.
"What the hell just happened?" Dean called out.
"That's a devil's gate. A damn door to hell." Ellen called back to Dean. "Come on. We gotta shut that gate."
They all got up and went for the door. Jenn stopped and turned around when she noticed Dean wasn't next to her. He opened the barrel, checking for bullets.
"Dean what are you doing?" Jenn called to him as she ran over to him.
"If the demon gave this to Jake...then maybe..." Dean replied, stopping himself.
Thunder crashed behind Dean and Jenn. Suddenly Dean turned around, the Colt aimed and cocked at the Yellow Eyed Demon. Before Dean could fire off a shot, the Colt flew out of Dean's hand and into the Yellow Eyed Demon's.
"A boy shouldn't play with Daddy's guns." The Yellow Eyed Demon said.
With the flick of his wrist, Dean and Jenn flew into the air, Dean hitting his head on a tombstone as Jenn landed next to him and barely missed it.
"Dean, Jenn!" Sam called out.
Sam let go of the gate door and ran to Dean and Jenn. Suddenly, he flew towards a nearby tree and was pinned to it.
"I'll get to you in a minute, champ. But I'm proud of you-knew you had it in you." the Demon called out to Sam before turning to Dean and Jenn, pinning them to their spots on the ground. "Sit a spell. So, Dean...I got to thank you. You see, demons can't resurrect people unless a deal is made." Jenn looked over to Dean in surprise…she knew it. "I know, red tape…it'll make you nuts. But thanks to you, Sammy and Jenn are back in rotation. Now, I wasn't counting on that, but I'm glad. I liked them better than Jake, anyhow. Now the final battle between the two can take place. And it's a battle to the death. Anyway, tell me…have you ever heard the expression, 'If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is'?"
"You call that deal good?" Dean replied.
"Well, it's a better shake than your dad ever got. And you never wondered why? I'm surprised at you. I mean...you saw what your brother just did to Jake, right? That was pretty cold, wasn't it? How certain are you that what you brought back, is 100 percent pure Sam? And same goes for Jenn. How do you know that's really Jenn? You of all people should know, that's what's dead, should stay dead. Anyway...thanks a bunch. I knew I kept you alive for some reason. Until now, anyway. I couldn't have done it without your pathetic, self-loathing, self-destructive desire to sacrifice yourself for your family."
The Yellow Eyed Demon cocked the Colt and aimed it at Dean when he was suddenly grabbed behind by the soul of John Winchester. The body that the demon possessed fell to the ground, the gun still in his hand as John and the Yellow Eyed Demon struggle with each other.
The Yellow Eyed Demon managed to get free of John's grasp and re-entered the body once more. He stood up, realizing that he didn't have the Colt anymore. He looked over to Dean, who cocked the Colt and shot him in the head.
Bobby, Mia and Ellen finally got the gate doors, turning around in surprise to see John nearby Sam, Jenn and Dean. Dean helped up Jenn and they walked towards John.
John proudly put his hand on Dean's shoulder, tears brimming his eyes. He turned towards Sam, who offered a nod, giving him a nod in return. He looked over to Mia, offering her a small smile.
He walked over to Jenn and placed his hand along side her arm. She gave him a small smile as a tear fell down her face. John then grabbed her hand and joined it when Dean's, showing them he approved of their relationship.
Dean looked down at his and Jenn's hand before looking up at Jenn, who looked back at him. They gave each other small smiles as John back away, smiling before he disappeared.
Dean, Jenn, Mia and Sam stood over the Yellow Eyed Demon's dead body, amazed that it was over.
"Well, check that off the to-do list." Dean said with a small smile.
"You did it." Sam said.
"I didn't do it alone."
"Do you think Dad really...do you think he really climbed out of hell?"
"The door was open. If anyone's stubborn enough to do it...it would be him." Jenn said.
"Where do you think he is now?"
"I don't know." Dean replied.
"I kind of can't believe it, Dean. I mean...our whole lives, everything...has been prepping for this, and now I... I kind of don't know what to say."
"I do." Dean leaned in closer to the body. "That was for our mothers...you son of a bitch." Dean said, referring to Mary Winchester and Camille Santos.
"You know, when Jake saw me and Jenn...it was like he saw a ghost. I mean, hell, you heard him, Dean. He said he killed us." Sam said.
"I'm glad he was wrong." Dean said, earning a look from Jenn and Mia.
"I don't think he was, Dean. What happened...after I was stabbed?"
"I already told you."
"Sam, we just killed the demon. Can we celebrate for a minute?"
"Did we die?"
"Oh, come on."
"Did you sell your soul for me and Jenn, like Dad did for you?"
"Oh, come on…no."
"Tell me the truth….Dean, tell me the truth."
"How long do you get?"
"One year. I got one year." Dean replied, earning a really hard punch in the arm from Jenn.
"You're lucky that's all you get. You shouldn't have done that. How could you?" Jenn asked in a mixture of anger and sadness.
"Don't get mad at me. Don't you do that, Jenn. I had to. I had to look out for you, Sam. That's my job."
"And what do you think our job is?" Sam asked.
"You've saved our lives over and over. I mean, you sacrifice everything for us. Don't you think we'd do the same for you? You're my big brother. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you, same applies with Jenn. And I don't care what it takes, I'm gonna get you out of this. Guess I gotta save your ass for a change."
"Well...Yellow Eyed Demon might be dead. But a lot more got through that gate." Ellen said as she and Bobby approached the four younger hunters.
"How many, you think?" Mia asked.
"Hundred. Maybe two hundred. It's an army. He's unleashed an army." Bobby replied. "Hope to hell you kids are ready. Cause the war has just begun."
"Well, then..." Dean started, heading to the trunk in the impala. "We got work to do."
