Dean awoke grudgingly, well-trained eyes seeking out Sam, scanning the room, squinting at the alarm clack, in that order.
He started to stretch but bruises pulled hard across his back, making his breath catch.
When he reopened his eyes, Sam was peering back.

Sam's hands worked gently, then deeper into the sore muscles.
Dean awoke grudgingly, eyes seeking out Sam, scanning the room, checking the clock.
Time to hit the road.
