A Necessary Evil

The body that had been Famine's vessel lay sprawled on the floor, a mass of blood and bone, hardly recognizable as human; a testament to Sam's re-awakened powers.

The younger Winchester looked dejectedly at his horrified brother.

"I'm sorry," he murmured, swaying slightly. "I let you down again."

"No," Dean replied softly. "I saw what you did. You resisted ... beat down a Horseman." He moved to his brother's side, wrapping Sam's arm over his shoulder for support.

Sam, gratified by his brother's words, smiled weakly.

"You know what you have to do," he whispered before collapsing into Dean's arms.
