When Dean and Andie got upstairs; they spotted Ruby standing guard outside the door to the little girls' room. She glanced at them as they neared but didn't dare speak. Dean peered into the room and saw his brother with Ruby's knife poised over the body of the young girl; preparing himself to stab her. Dean glanced at the little girl and saw nothing but her sweet face. Then he knew. Dean bolted into the room and grabbed his brother's arm just as he was about to plunge the knife into the little girl's chest.
"It's not her!" Dean yelled as the little girl woke up and screamed at the top of her lungs. "It's not in here anymore!"
"Mommy!" The frightened little girl screamed as she looked at the strangers standing over her bed.
"It's ok!" Her mother grabbed her and hugged her tightly. "It's ok, Mommy's here."
Dean calmed his brother down before they ushered the mother and daughter out of the bedroom and downstairs towards the basement. "Alright, no matter what you hear, stay down in the basement with your husband and daughter." Dean told the mother as she clutched her daughter in her arms and headed for the lower floor of the house. She thanked him and then disappeared below.
"Well, I hate to say "told you so"." Ruby said as she, Andie, Sam and Dean headed into the living room. They'd searched the house; Lilith was nowhere to be found.
"Alright Ruby, where is she?" Sam asked bitterly.
"I don't know." Ruby replied vehemently.
"Could she get past the sprinklers?" Sam continued.
"Her paygrade, she ain't sweating the holy water." Ruby replied.
"Ok, you win." Sam sighed. "What do I have to do?"
"What do you mean?" Ruby gave him a quizzical look.
"To save Dean." Sam told her as his brother came up behind him. "What do you need me to do?"
Dean grabbed his brother's shoulder. "What the hell do you think you're doing?"
Sam pulled free from his brother. "Shut up for a second." He turned to Ruby. "Ruby!"
"You had your chance." She told him. "You can't just flip a switch. We needed time."
"That's crap." Andie spoke up from behind Dean. "There's gotta be something."
"She's right; there's gotta be some way, whatever it is, I'll do it." Sam agreed frantically as his brother grabbed for him again. "Don't Dean! I'm not gonna let you go to hell, Dean!"
"Yes, you are!" Dean yelled back. Then he took a deep breath. "Yes, you are." He said more calmly. "I'm sorry. I mean, this is all my fault, I know that. But what you're doing, it's not gonna save me. It's only gonna kill you."
Sam looked away as tears pricked his eyes. "Then what am I supposed to do?"
"Keep fighting." Dean smiled sadly as tears misted his own eyes. "Take care of my wheels. Sam, remember what dad taught you... ok?" His brother nodded as he held back tears. "And remember what I taught you." Dean swallowed hard and looked over at Andie. She was biting her lip and had her arms tightly folded across her chest. He took a few steps towards her. "I'm sorry, Andie." He said honestly.
Andie shook her head slowly. "This can't…" She said unable to stop her voice shaking. "This can't be it." Dean continued walking towards her but she met him halfway and wrapped her arms tightly around his neck squeezing him hard. "I…" Her voice cracked as the enormity of what was about to happen struck her like a steam train. "I can't just let you go." She sobbed into his shoulder. "I don't know how."
Dean buried his head in her neck and kissed her soft, skin one last time as tears slipped out of his eyes and into her hair. He then had to pull away from her and physically detach her arms from around his neck. He smoothed the hair off of her face and held her head in his hands for a few seconds. "I love you, Morgan." He smirked through his tears.
Andie smiled through her cries. "Don't call me that." She said tiredly as she kissed him firmly on the mouth, drinking in her final moments with him as the grandfather clock in the corner struck midnight.
Dean pulled away from Andie but gripped her hand as he looked over at the clock. He then turned to his brother who had tears falling freely from his eyes. Dean gave him a small smile as he tried to hold back his own tears as best he could.
"I'm sorry, Dean." Ruby spoke up. "I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy."
Dean's ears suddenly picked up the sound of the Hellhounds howl behind him. He face fell. "Hellhound." He muttered.
"Where?" Sam asked looking around frantically.
"There." Dean nodded towards the sound of the howl that came from the doorway to the living room.
Gripping Andie's hand, Dean bolted with Sam and Ruby into the other room where Andie used her power to close the doors as fast as she could to keep the Hellhounds out. It worked. The demonic dogs could be heard snarling and scratching at the closed doors. They wouldn't keep. Sam, Dean and Andie took out the hex bags Ruby had given them months before back at the sheriff's station and poured the dust in the doorways and windowsills.
"Give me the knife," Ruby said to Sam. "Maybe I can fight it off?" He looked skeptical. "Come on! That dust won't last forever!" Sam sighed, took out the knife and handed it over.
"Wait!" Dean screamed. "Sam, that's not Ruby. It's not Ruby!"
Sprung but no longer caring, Ruby flicked her head towards Sam and flung him up against the wall pinning him against his will. The knife dropped to the floor. Ruby then shoved her hand at Dean and tossed him on his back onto the table. Andie waved her hand at Ruby to toss her away but she barely flinched. Her head snapped back a little but that was all.
"Uh-uh, sweetheart." Ruby snarled with a smirk as she straightened her neck. She then threw both hands out towards Andie and directed them into the wall smacking Andie heavily against a mirror. She collapsed to the ground with the mirror shattering all around her.
All Dean could manage to do was hold up his head but even that was difficult. "How long you been in her?" He spat at Ruby.
"Not long." She replied, Ruby's demeanor disappearing and Lilith's taking over. She looked down at her new body. "But I like it. It's all grown up and pretty." As she looked up her eyes turned shock white.
"And where's Ruby?" Sam asked from up against the wall.
Lilith's eyes turned back to normal. "She was a very bad girl. So I sent her far, far away." She tilted her head and cracked her neck a few times.
"You know, I should have seen it before..." Dean spoke up angrily. "But you all look alike to me."
Lilith ignored him and focused on his brother. "Hello Sam." She moved towards him. "I've wanted to meet you for a very long time." She grabbed a hold of his chin and kissed him against his will; her lips sizzling as they touched his skin. "Your lips are soft." She purred.
Sam tried to pull away from her grasp. "Ok; you have me. Let my brother go.
"Silly goose." Lilith tutted him. "You wanna bargain, you have to have something that I want. You don't."
"So, is this your big plan, huh?" Dean spoke up. "Drag me to hell. Kill Sam. And then what? Become queen bitch?"
"I don't have to answer to puppy chow." She retorted.
Andie pulled herself up off the floor so she was on all fours and tried to use her power on Lilith but nothing even remotely happened. She cried out in exasperation as she tried to use it again with no result.
Lilith turned to her. "Andie, Andie, Andie," She said in a sing-song voice. "You think that little power of yours is gonna hurt me?" She shook her head then flicked one finger at Andie, knocking her back off her feet so she was slumped against the wall. "If I could kill you; you'd be dead already…as it is…" She smiled and walked towards the door that was holding back the Hellhounds. "This'll do just as well." She took a hold of the doorhandle. "Sick 'em, boy." She smirked as she yanked open the door.
"NO!" Sam hollered.
The door crashed open as the invisible dogs snatched Dean off the table and dragged him to the floor. Andie watched in horror as slashes and cuts appeared in Dean's arms and legs as he screamed in pain.
"Stop it!" Andie screamed at Lilith. She just laughed in response. Tears poured out of Andie's eyes as Dean's chest was ripped to ribbons right in front of her. Blood was gushing everywhere as Dean screamed at the top of his lungs. "Stop!" She watched as Dean stopped screaming and just fought for every breath.
"STOP IT!!" Sam screamed in heartache as he watched. "NO!"
"Yes." Ruby told him gleefully.
Suddenly Dean's body stopped being eaten. He stopped moving. He just lay there. Gone. Andie realized she could move her arms and legs again so she scrambled across the ground towards Dean. "Dean." She said earnestly as she grabbed what remained of his jacket. "Dean." She sobbed as she saw the glassy, hollow look in his eyes. "No, no, come on," She lifted him onto her lap and hugged him tightly to her body. "Come on; don't do this to me…please."
The next thing she knew she was shrouded in a blinding, white light. The force of it made her let go of Dean and she was once again tossed back off her feet and across the floor until she slid heavily into the wall. When the light dissipated Andie could see a terrified looking Lilith staring down at Sam who was huddled in a corner.
"Back." Lilith warned Sam though she looked scared as hell. Sam got to his feet and took a deep breath. "I said back!" Lilith cried.
A determined Sam bent back down, picked up Ruby's knife and walked towards her. "I don't think so." He spat hatefully. He reared back to stab her but wasn't quick enough; Lilith expunged herself from Ruby's body in one blood curdling scream that was followed by a demonically black plume of smoke. Ruby's used; dead body fell limply beside Dean as Lilith disappeared to points unknown.
With tears building up quickly in his eyes, Sam slowly walked over to his brothers' body. As he knelt down next to him, his tears broke free and poured from his eyes. "No…no…Dean…" He hugged him to his chest. "Dean."
Watching Sam mourn his brother, Andie lent her head back against the wall breathing heavily. Her tears streaked her face but no more fell from her eyes. She swallowed her sadness into the depths of her soul and pushed her back against the wall to get to her feet. Her eyes were glued to Dean's body. It was strange. Barely moments before she'd been holding him so tightly and now…all that was left was a shell. Dean wasn't in there anymore. She'd made him a promise; she'd told him she'd save his life. And up until this moment she'd wholeheartedly believed she could. But as she stared at her husband's lifeless body she saw how wrong she was.
