Disclaimer: Once again Supernatural does not belong to me.

Sorry for the delay in posting. I was on vacation all last week. This is the last chapter but there will definitely be a sequel at some point in time.


Bridget's POV

When I woke I wasn't sure where I was. I nearly panicked at the feeling of someone's arms around me but suddenly remembered that it was Dean and that I had asked him to stay with me after that nightmare. I shifted slightly and he pulled me closer burying his face in my hair. Instead of remaining in that position I turned around in his arms and found myself nose to nose with him. His eyes opened and he smiled.

"If I could wake up like this every morning for the rest of my life I'd die a happy man," he said half seriously. "How did you sleep?"

"Better," I admitted. "No nightmares."

"Good," he pulled away slightly. "Hey listen. I was thinking, I need a break from all of this, hunting I mean, and I thought that maybe I could stay here, with you."

My eyes widened, "With me?"

"If you don't want me to that's fine, just tell me. I'm just, tired. I'm tired of living out of my car and eating nothing but crap."

I smiled, "I'd like it if you stayed."

He grinned and I suddenly felt his lips on mine. The kiss only lasted a second before he pulled away looking apologetic. I barely registered his apology and before I could decide against it I kissed him. I was clumsy but he quickly responded and I soon found myself lying on my back with him leaning over me.

"Dean," I moaned as his lips moved to my neck. His hand found bare skin between the shorts and tank top I had worn to bed and his nimble fingers easily slipped underneath the tank top. My hands quickly found the bottom on his shirt and I pulled it up over his head. He quickly relieved me of mine as well and he kissed his way further down. Things escalated from there and before long I found myself unable to form a coherent thought.

"That was fantastic," I said a while later once I had caught my breath.

Dean turned on his side facing me and propped his head on his hand, "You were fantastic Sweetheart."

I grinned, "I'm going to shower."

He smirked, "You want me to join you? You know I wash your back, you wash mine."

I laughed, "Sorry Dean not this time."

"Damn. I guess I'll just have to convince you to stay in bed then." He leaned down to kiss me and I found myself responding eagerly.

I eventually regained the ability to think and pushed him away firmly but gently. "As much as I'd like to stay in bed with you I have class in an hour."


Dean's POV

She put on her glasses and easily slid off the bed grabbing her robe from the chair in the corner. I watched her with a lazy grin as she left the room. Her hips wiggled slightly as she walked and I wondered why I hadn't realized she was that sexy before I had seen her naked. Because she was sexy, and extremely smart. A deadly combination that I didn't think I could resist.

She came back a while later and started rummaging through her dresser. I watched her get dressed in a pair of jeans and a long sleeve black shirt. She added a maroon ball cap to the outfit and I couldn't stop the grin from spreading across my face.

"You know I didn't think it was possible for a girl to look so good wearing a ball cap," I said.

She blushed, "I've got to go. I'll be back around three. Make yourself at home."

Once she was gone I got out of bed and took a quick shower. The day was pretty uneventful which was exactly what I was looking for. The rest of the week went by like that. I stayed in the apartment for most of the day and when Bridget got back we would work on her vette.


Bridget's POV

Dean had decided to stay until I graduated and we had a pretty good month. He was great and I was pretty sure I had fallen in love with him at some point. We worked on my car together and actually managed to finish it in that time. The day of my graduation I woke up to find Dean stuffing his things into a bag.

"What are you doing?" I asked sleepily.

He cringed at the sound of my voice. "I'm leaving. I thought I'd be gone by the time you woke up."

I sat up clutching the sheet to my chest, "What? You said you would be here for my graduation."

"Dad called," he said. "I have to go now. Listen Bridget, it's been fun."

I scowled at him, "You son of a bitch! That's all I am to you? A bit of fun? A nice little break from hunting? God Dean I thought we had something here. You sure made it easy for me to fall in love with you."

His eyes softened for a moment but they hardened again so fast that I thought I had imagined it. "That's right, it's been a nice break but I've got to get back to the real world. And you know what? I really hope I never see you again Bridget."

I was stunned into silence as he threw the rest of his things into the bag and headed for the door. I flinched as the front door slammed and I didn't bother to stop the tears from flowing as I heard the unmistakable sound of him driving away in his '67 Impala. I curled up in my bed and cried myself back to sleep. I missed graduation and that was how my friend Rachel found me that evening.


Dean's POV

I pulled over as soon as I was a good distance away from town and slammed my hand against the steering wheel before resting my head against it. It hurt, leaving her like that, but it was for her own good. The further she was from me the safer she would be but that didn't make it hurt any less. I felt like I had just stabbed a knife into my own heart and by the look she had had on her face I had done the same to her.

"Oh God," I whispered. "I'm sorry Bridget. I love you."

I wasn't sure how long I saw there but I eventually started off again. I was headed for Montana where I would meet up with Dad. We had work to do I wasn't going to let a woman get in the way of that even if I was in love with her. I'd miss her like crazy but at least she would be safe.
