Author's Notes: Happy Birthday to velvetine01! I hope this helps add to a wonderful celebration for you. Sorry this wound up Gen- I was aiming for something else.

It was never this bad before, not day in and day out. Dean used to know what he should be doing, knew his purpose. It all changed after Hell, too much demanded without a foundation of trust, and now…

Now he and Sam are running, because Dean wasn't there in time to stop what Sam began. All they can do is run.

"Where—" Sam asks.

"As far away as possible."

It's not an answer or a solution, but it's all Dean's got besides Sam here with him.

After the past two years, Dean thinks it just might be enough.
