E/O Challenge: "Steady"

Stranger

After the first gunshot, Dean turns immediately to Ellen, expecting the worst. But when he hears the other shots fired – five, six, seven – he faces his brother, who is standing over Jake. His aim is true, his hand is steady. Jake… who wasn't all that different, really, from Sam.

But the expression in his innocent brother's eyes is totally alien to him. Blind rage, but with a satisfied half-smile that just looks wrong. For a moment, he doesn't see Sam at all; he sees Gordon Walker, Anson Weems, Meg…himself, even. He blinks, but the stranger is still there. Perhaps for good.
