Chapter 01: We've Got a Problem


Morning's early light found the Winchester's once again cruising down open back roads…this time through Iowa. Sam had relieved Dean, but with only one car and the same scenery to amuse for the past several hours, he'd found it rather dull. A quick glance at the gauges showed a near empty tank and as Sam touched the knob to turn the heat down, that's when the trouble started.

"Hey, Dean." He finally had to smack Dean awake.

"Wha? Whatchya want Sammy?"

Sam hid his smile at Dean's sleep-slurred response before Dean's sudden awareness reminded him.

"We've got a problem."
