Sam looked over at his beaten brother who was thankfully asleep in the hospital bed. He couldn't believe what Uriel and Castiel had put his brother through, no way God could've given the angels the order? He also felt that Castiel knew Dean couldn't handle it, he could see in the angels expression, but yet the angel still ordered him to torture Alistair.

He looked up to see Castiel in front of him, "Cas, please tell me what to do, I don't know…I'm lost and…I don't know if Dean-"

"Sam, your brother will be fine, but I need to talk to you"

"About what? If it's about Dean I'll listen" Sam said wiping a tear away from his eye.

"Your brother…he needs you to help him"

"But how? How am I supposed to help him if he won't even let me try?"

"He'll let you….Don't worry about it, the important thing is--"

"Dean is in the hospital because of you and Uriel can't keep a trap sealed, any you want me to stop worrying?"

Castiel sighed, "No Sam, that's not what I meant. Stop worrying about him not letting you and worry about what's to become of him"

"What do you mean?" Sam asked.

"Sam…Alistair told you brother some shocking information….about the apocalypse"

"What is it?"

"Your father…held on for one hundred years…never agreeing to except Alistair's offer,

but…your brother he broke after thirty years"

"C'mon Cas, get on with it"

"It is written that the first seal shall be broken when a righteous man sheds blood in hell,

and as he breaks, so shall it break, and bring forth the apocalypse"

"Wait…Cas, I don't get it" Sam said with a weary look.

"Sam, this was hard for your brother to hear, so it may be hard for you, but your brother broke the first seal while in hell, he is the righteous man who started it, and he will be the righteous man who ends it"

"Cas, I believe you, but I don't think Dean is strong enough to do this by himself"

"I know" the angel nodded simply, "That's why I'm asking you to help him Sam"

"But what if I cant?"

"You can, I know it"

Sam looked down at Dean and then back to the place where Castiel was standing, which was empty, he took his brothers hand and squeezed it tightly, "I'm going to get you through this, I promise Dean"


The sound of the machine they had Dean hooked up to was starting to take it's toll on Sam, making him fall asleep. His phone rang playing a melancholy tune that reminded

him of sadness. He picked it up and looked at the callerID. Caleb.

"Hey… Caleb"

"Hey, heard deuce was in the hospital is everything okay?" Sam could hear the worry in the hunters tone.

"He's sleeping"

"What happened runt, I don't want no lie either, I want the damn truth"


"The demon? From hell?"

"Who else" Sam wasn't really in the mood to talk to anyone.

"Was thinking Lilith, so what did alistair do to your brother?"

"Caleb…I'm sorry but…I'm not really in the mood right now, I'm….tired"

"Fine then." Sam could hear the slight hesitation in the hunters voice, "But as soon as you wake up, you call me right away with all the details you got that?"

"Got it"

"Alright, get some sleep runt, everything will be alright"

"Yeah bye"


Sam hung up the phone and laid his head back in the chair, he hoped that Caleb was right…that everything will be okay.
