A Simple Thing

The body that had once been Alistair's vessel lies lifeless at my feet, a testament to my newly discovered power.

I kneel beside Dean, holding him as he struggles for breath.

"Easy," I whisper, "easy big brother."

Castiel stands close by – silent.

"What happened?" I growl.

He nods in the direction of the Devils Trap, at a simple leaking pipe that continues to drip onto compromised defences.

"I don't know how it happened," he mutters. "I am sorry."

Dean bucks violently in my arms, losing his battle for life.

"CASTIEL," I yell, "HELP HIM!"

Instantly the room dissolves around us.
