Summary: E/O Drabble Challenge. Continues from "When All Else Fails." Bobby has something to say.
Challenge word: Twitch
A/N: The most important thing I want to say is that I'm extremely apologetic to all those who have reviewed my drabbles that I haven't yet responded to. I still have them in my inbox and I still hope to get to each one. Thank you so much to all of you who have taken the time to read and review. It means a lot.
I'm going to try and make this the last drabble in the "Buried" series. It's been brought to my attention that a series of drabbles are usually posted together as chapters are, but I feel these could also stand on their own and since it's a little late to worry about it, I'm posting this as a standalone, too. Besides, like I said, I'm going to try to move on from this series so, hopefully, this will be the last time I do that.
Sorry I haven't been keeping up with the challenges, I've missed being a part of them. But real life and muse don't always cooperate. Thanks for reading and much gratitude to all who review. I love getting feedback and I'm happy to be honored by those of you willing to take time out for me :).
"Your brother tells me you ain't doin' so good, kid."
Dean's eyes lift; take in the fading glow of sunset. He says nothing, but looks like he's about to bolt.
Bobby lays a hand on his neck. "After what you been through, there's no shame in it. Doubt any of us would fare better."
A twitch in Dean's cheek says more than the words that aren't coming.
"Yeah. Well, I think you're wrong about that. John woulda been proud of you, son. To Hell with him. I'm proud of you."
Dean's lips tick up at the corners ever so slightly.
