Summary: E/O Drabble Challenge. Continues from "Desert Walk." Sam's done all he can to help Dean. When all else fails, this is the only answer he has left.

Challenge word: Worn

A/N#1: Apologies to Platinumroselady, rather than sick!Sam, this is more like angsty!Sam. Hope you are feeling better! Also, apologies to everyone for its lateness. I hope you like it. Lastly, If I haven't answered your review from the last drabble, it's not because it wasn't cherished, hugged and petted thoroughly! I appreciated each one…and I'll be checking tomorrow for those I've missed.


Sam rubs gritty, bloodshot eyes, blows out a sigh. In the next bed, his brother finally sleeps. It's been a real long week and Sam's feeling threadbare—worn within an inch of his life. Dean's nightmares have punctuated every single night since Sam released him from that coffin—with no end in sight.

There has to be an end in sight. For both their sanities. But he doesn't know when and each night that passes brings him closer to the end of his rope. Frustration has finally won and he's given in, broken his promise to Dean.

"Hello? Bobby?"


A/N#2: Reviews are deeply appreciated even though it's quite possible this sucks rotten eggs threw a moldy straw. And, yes, it's quite possible I've misused sanities...but, I'm tired and determined to get this posted before I get the new word...so this is me throwing myself on your mercy, dear readers.
