Still a Big Brother

By: Vanessa Sgroi

Frowning in concern, Dean Winchester looked over at his younger brother, Sam, who was just entering their motel room.

"You feelin' okay?"

"Yeah, I'm fine. Why?"

"I dunno. You look…tired." In fact, to Dean's critical eye, Sam looked exhausted, hollow. Almost faded. A pale version of his usual self.

"I am tired. Aren't you? We've been hunting almost non-stop for a month."

Dean couldn't disagree; he was tired too. But he didn't think he looked as bad as Sam. "Why don't you lie down while I go get us food?"

Sam snorted. "I'm not five."

Sometimes I wish you were.
