This is my last chapter of this, guys. I'm not incredibly happy with this one, especially with the showdown. This mostly goes through the finale so that's why I named the chapter what I did.


"I wish I could be there to hear you scream!"

Jay waited until he was sure that Dean and Sam had left. He heard Ruby yelling at his father, and for a second he worried about this plan. Dean had seriously pissed her off. He didn't have to glance at his watch to know that he had no time, though.

"Hey, Ruby." He stepped into the room and glanced briefly up at the Devil's Trap that his dad had trapped her in. She turned angry eyes on him.

"What do you want, kid?" She growled. He shrugged and crossed his arms.

"Not much time left," he said after a moment, glancing briefly up the stairs to where his father and uncle had disappeared.

"It doesn't matter now. Dean is going to die, from stupidity."

"They're going to leave me here. Maybe get one of Bobby's friends here and probably put all kinds of protections on this place so nothing can get to me while they're gone fighting Lilith."

"What's your point?" She asked, still angry.

"Sam won't do what you want him to. Dad will never let him. Too much risk of Sam losing himself or whatever." Ruby raised one eyebrow.

"Oh, and what? You will?"

"No," Jay shook his head, a small humorless smile forming, "I'm not gonna be the one to kill this bitch. Question is, are you still willing to help?"

"Why should I?" Her voice turned harsh again, and she looked up the stairs one more time where Dean and Sam had disappeared. "Maybe I'm thinking that he deserves to die."

"That's bull," He watched her, "well, maybe not, but I know you want to kill her. I'm willing to give you the opportunity." He shrugged again. "I know what I am."

"So, you're willing to use it? Go against daddy's wishes?" Jay shook his head.

"No, I'm not. Like I said, I'm not going to be the one to kill Lilith." Ruby crossed her arms.

"Should I repeat myself? What's your point?"

"I want to save my dad. You want her dead, right? Let's make a deal."


Sam fought against the power holding him against the wall, watching in horror as his brother was being ripped apart, as blood appeared on his legs.

"Back them off!" A new voice said harshly from the doorway. Sam looked over to find Jay standing behind Lilith. Lilith turned to him.

"I don't think so." She raised her hand but faltered when nothing happened.

"Back them off." Jay repeated. "Or you die with him." Sam looked over at Dean. The hellhounds did back off and Dean lay there, breathing harshly and holding his bleeding chest but still breathing.

"Jay?" Jay's eyes turned briefly to him and he saw the small smile on Jay's face. Lilith started to back up. She started to leave the body but Jay held up a hand.

"I don't think so." He said calmly. Lilith backed up even more and Sam saw the fear in her eyes. Jay knelt down and picked up Ruby's knife.

"Thought you got rid of me?" Jay asked. Sam's eyes widened when Jay's turned black.

"Ruby." He said, not a question. Ruby's smile widened and she turned her gaze to Sam again, winking at him. She stepped up to Lilith.

"Say goodnight." She said before lashing out with the knife. Sam watched as she fell and the power holding him still faltered and died. He watched warily as Ruby looked down at the body. She cocked Jay's head to the side.

"Pity. I did like that body." She looked over at Sam and walked over to him.

"What are you doing?"

"The kid and I have a deal, Sam. You leave me alone, I leave you alone. I save your worthless excuse of a brother, he helps me kill Lilith." She reached a hand up and slapped it to Sam's chest. "The contract belongs to you now." She stepped back. Sam watched as she left Jay's body and Jay collapsed back, unconscious.

Sam's legs gave out and he sat hard on the floor. He stared at Jay. The boy lay on the floor, eyes closed. What the hell just happened? How did this happen?

Sam was brought out of his daze by Dean's labored breathing. He hesitated for a moment, chewing his lip and went over to Jay first. Jay seemed fine, just unconscious. He scrambled over to Dean next.

Sam lifted Dean slightly in his arms and looked over the wounds on his chest. Sam got his jacket off and pressed it against the worst ones. Dean's eyes were clenched shut and he let out a cry when Sam pressed down on the wounds. Sam glanced over at Jay again.

"It's over, it's okay." Sam said quietly. He kept his gaze on Jay, though. He knew that he might be lying. That it might not be over. What had happened...Jay had done what Sam had refused to. He had saved Dean, but at what cost?


Jay stepped into the hospital room, letting out a small sigh, his gaze focusing on his father. Dean was asleep in the hospital bed, bandages covering his chest. Sam was sleeping in one of the chairs beside the bed, looking like he'd be hurting when he woke up.

Jay walked over and sat down next to Sam. He still couldn't believe that it had worked, that his dad was okay. When he had come up with the plan, he hadn't really been sure that it would work. Plus, he hadn't been sure that Ruby would go for it either. Not to mention the fact that this plan had involved tricking Lilith.

There had been a very big risk when Lilith had taken over the body that Ruby had been using. Ruby had gone there for that very risk. She had shown Jay how to make sure that she didn't get sent back to hell when Lilith forcefully expelled her from the body.

The power that Ruby used to kill Lilith was slightly frightening. Jay hadn't been sure if he could bring himself to use it. But Ruby...she could.

Jay slouched down further in his chair and laid his head on Sam's shoulder. He could still feel it. That power that Ruby had woken up inside of him. It was still there, below the surface, and it scared the hell out of him.
