A/N: This was the only title I could think of, and maybe it does fit. Things never turn out the way we think they will. There are many more of us in the E/O Drabble Challenge. Check out Enkidu07 and Onyx Moonbeam's profiles for the complete list, or to join in!

Summary: E/O CHALLENGE. Drabble word: shudder. Two drabbles, one funny, another one full of tortured Dean in hell angst.


1. Too Close Quarters

"Fugly's on the roof," John said tersely. "Stay here with her, Dean, no matter what."

Nineteen year old Dean did what he was told. John and Bobby left.

The roof collapsed with a loud groan, and the last thing Dean remembered was shielding the old woman with his body. It took four hours to dig them out.

Dean stood there blinking in the cold sunlight. John clapped him proudly on the shoulder. "Good job, son."

She was old enough to be his friggin' grandmother, for God's sake. She had grabby hands, and Dean couldn't quite suppress that full body shudder.


On to drabble #2.
