Dean and Sam waited a few hours for Baby and Michael to arrive. They gave them the name of the hotel they were staying in and did what Baby told them to. Sam was looking through his father's journal but couldn't find anything about it. He just noticed paged that were ripped from the seams and he wondered if those pages were the ones about the Harrisons.
Dean hung up his phone after talking with Bobby and sat on the bed throwing his phone. "The only thing to do is to send Agramon back to hell with an exorcism unless the Harrison's know something we don't."
"Do you think this is the demon was the demon that dad saved Charlie from?"
"Could be? I mean did you hear Baby's panicked voice?" Sam nodded and looked at Dean to find him staring at nothing and knew he was thinking.
There was a knock on the door. Sam and Dean grabbed their guns, Sam opened the door and there was Baby, Michael and Kat. "Kat?" he asked surprised. He opened the door more letting them in.
"Hey, Baby," said Dean and she nodded towards him.
"She begged," said Baby turning to Sam as he closed the door and fixed the salt line at the door. He turned to Kat and hugged her. "Why would you come? Have you ever hunted before?"
"Duh," said Kat letting go of Sam and grinning at him. "I was hunting my whole life; I just like the behind the scenes stuff now."
"Ok, now that we have the happy reunion out of the way, can we figure out what we're going to do?" asked Dean.
"Well, if you guys haven't figured Agramon is the demon that almost killed our father," said Baby and she sat down across from Dean on Sam's bed. "Agramon uses your worst fear and kills you with it."
"Sounds like Charmed," said Kat remembering her dads fear and shuddered.
Baby smiled. "Sort of, Charmed, kind of got the idea right but Agramon is a real demon not a scary weird looking man that creeps the hell out of me." Dean raised his eyebrows.
"Our father came home to find us all tied up and Agramon there taunting him. He wanted to start with Baby, just to see our father's broken heart over his baby girl." Baby grimaced glancing at Dean then back at Michael who was telling the story. "But Agramon wasn't expecting John to be there and was caught off guard."
"From what I remember it was a very messy exorcism," said Kat. She was sitting at one the table with Sam. "It took them over six hours to perform it because Agramon is a very powerful demon. He knows everyone's weaknesses and fears. He'll try everything he can to win."
"We're going to have to try and stay away from our fears and defeat them," said Baby looking at Kat.
"Well, Dean, you don't have to worry about any airplanes," said Sam.
"It sucks that he can pull clowns out of a hat for you Sammy boy," said Dean he grinned and Sam glared at him.
Baby turned to Dean. "Clowns are scary! Did you ever see Rob Zombies House of a 1000 Corpses or The Devils Rejects Or even Steven Kings IT.? Those are scary ass clowns." Baby shivered and Dean smirked at her.
"We just have to make sure we stay together," said Michael crossing his arms. "No one gets left behind. I'm pretty sure that Agramon knows we are here."
"You think he'll remember us?" asked Kat wrapping her arms around herself.
"Have you ever seen a demon that didn't remember?" asked Baby getting a little defensive. "They have a lifetime of vengeance and memories. Of course they'll know."
"Don't Baby me. Baby, Baby, Baby." She mocked Kat in her tone.
"Stop it. I remember your face, we all do, what he made you see, made you think…"
"Just stop it! I don't want to remember it." Baby growled and started grinding her teeth together. She leaned against the headboard of Sam's bed with her arms across her chest. She didn't want to remember but it was too late the memory came at her. That night Agramon came. After he tied them to the chairs waiting for her father to come home, he made her see her fear. She cried and pleaded for him to stop. Baby was brought out of her memory from Dean scooting over on his bed and looking at her.
"You ok, Baby?"
"Sure, yeah, fine." She glanced at him. He could tell she was lying, she wasn't fine at all. She didn't want to have to see Agramon again.
Once the five of them had a plan to get to Agramon, Baby and Dean went towards the back of the building where the deaths were found near and the other three took the front. "So you want to talk about what Agramon made you see?" asked Dean as he opened the basement door. He looked around and ushered for her to go in.
"Not really," she said taking out a flashlight and turning it on as she started down the stairs into the dark basement.
"Then how exactly are you going to fight him, if he has you paralyzed in fear again?" asked Dean. He was getting a little annoyed with Baby's stubbornness towards this case. He was attracted to it all at the same time.
Baby turned around sighing. "Ok, fine. I never told anyone about what he made me see. You will probably laugh at me for it."
"Depending on what it is…yeah I probably will." He grinned at her and looked around for a staircase that led upstairs.
"Prick…ouch!" she yelled feeling something scrape up against her arm. She turned her flashlight over to what it as to find a pitch fork. "Oh yeah, that's safe."
"So what did you see?"
Dean sighed irritated. He wasn't going to have Baby paralyzed in fear and not be able to help him. They needed to watch each other's backs. He turned around and he was annoyed. "I thought you were going to say."
"I did just say it. I saw nothing. There was nothing around me. I was alone. I'm afraid of being abandoned, I'm afraid of being alone. I can't take it. When I was younger my father wanted me not to go into this business but I felt like I was being left behind, abandoned. So Agramon gave me my fear. He made me see the world as if I was a spirit trapped watching everyone around go by not even noticing me. I was invisible." She took a deep breath and then said, "That is the most honest I've ever been about my fears to anyone…ever. And if you laugh so help me God I will beat you!"
Dean smirked. "Sounds kinky." Baby rolled her eyes and put her free hand on her hip. "How you feel?" Dean knew it had to be hard for her to break down the wall and finally tell someone her fear, especially to someone she barely knew.
"A lot better actually." They heard a door open and they took out their guns and leaned against the wall. Dean tried to look around the wall but couldn't see anything. That's when the two of them felt themselves black out.
Kat, Sam and Michael walked inside the building waiting to hear anything from Dean and Baby. It has been a few minutes and they still haven't heard anything. Sam picked up his cell and tried calling Dean. That's when he heard Deans cell. It was coming from the second floor. The three of them ran upstairs and the sound got louder when they reached a door. Michael kicked it open and went in first to find Baby and Dean tied up and unconscious to chairs.
"Baby!" said Michael running over to her and untying her ropes.
Dean and Baby started waking up from the others saying their names and shaking them. "Dean," said Sam. "What happened?"
Dean blinked a couple times and looked around. "I have no clue. We heard a door open and the next thing I know I'm waking up here."
"What about you Baby?" asked Kat. Baby shook her head.
"Alright let's get out of here," said Sam.
"Good idea," said Michael.
The five of them went back to the hotel and to their rooms. Baby sat on the edge of the bed trying to figure out what the hell happened in the basement. She couldn't remember. She couldn't remember a thing. There was a knock on her door and she opened it to find Dean.
"Oh, hey, you ok?" she asked letting him in. He closed the door behind him and locked it. Baby didn't even notice.
"Yup, I'm fine. Where's Kat?"
"Over in Michaels room doing some more tracking on Agramon." She turned around finding Dean a couple inches from her. "Uh, Dean…" She felt his hand on her throat and covered her mouth with his hand. He slammed her against the wall behind her. "Shh, it's ok sweetheart, I'm just doing this to protect you. I'm sorry." Baby tried screaming but his hand around her throat tightened.
"Dean, please, this isn't you," she said through coughs.
"My one fear is for me to get too close to you, Baby. The only way I am able not to get close to you is to kill you."
"Dean, you don't want to kill me." She had to do something to try and get out of his grip. "Please, I won't hurt you…"
"It's not you that is going to do the hurting; it's me and my demons. They'll hurt you and I can't let them. I can't get close to you. Don't you see? If I get close to you, if I start breaking down my walls and letting you inside like I want, they will use you as my weakness to get to me." He seemed to have tears in his eyes while saying this. He kissed her forehead and leaned his against hers. "I'm sorry, I have to do this."
The door broke open and Dean turned around still holding her neck in his grip. Kat, Sam and Michael came in holding guns to them. "Let her go, Dean."
"I have to kill her, I have no choice."
"Yes, you do," said Sam walking over to him slowly. "Just let her go, you're not doing anyone good by killing Baby. Let her go."
Baby felt Dean's hand loosen on her neck and then dropped his hand by his side. He shook his head and looked around. "What…what the hell is going on? Did I…" He couldn't finish his sentence and looked at Baby whose neck was all red. "Baby, I-I am sorry."
"Dean, it's not your fault," she said rubbing her neck.
"Why did you go after my sister?" asked Kat. "You afraid of her or something?" She went over to Baby and checked her neck to make sure it was ok. Baby glanced at Dean and then looked at Kat. "Exactly, his fear was to be out hunted by a girl."
"Now, all we have to know is what Agramon did to you," said Michael but before he could fix the salt lines in the room the door blew open causing him to fly back. A tall man came walking in. He was balding and wearing a suit. He closed the door with his mind and looked at Baby. "Baby's fear is to lose everyone she cares about, starting with you four." He grinned. "But first, in order to play our little game…" He flung the guns out of their hands and into the back of the room where Michael laid unconscious. "Good, now it's fair game." He looked at Sam. "Sammy, Sammy, your fear is to lose Kat and have her family hurt in the process." He turned to Kat. "You're biggest fear is to lose your sister." Baby felt herself slide towards Agramon and into his grip. "Why don't we have some fun, eh?"
Baby found herself being thrown up at the ceiling. She screamed in pain and tried to get off the ceiling and then felt herself being thrown against the wall and then right into the kitchen table and chairs causing her to go unconscious.
"Baby!" yelled Kat. She was trying to run over to Baby but felt herself stuck. She was frozen, paralyzed, she couldn't move. Her biggest fear was coming true. She was letting it concur her. Dean kneeled down next to Baby and rolled her over. Her head was bleeding and her breathing was shallow. He looked up at Agramon. "You son of a bitch."
"Don't mourn Dean," said Agramon. "It's very unattractive. Too bad, Baby had such potential." Agramon grinned and looked at Sam. "Sammy, you wanna watch as your girlfriend and her sister die, very slowly?" Kat held onto her stomach feeling a tortuous pain build up inside her. She whimpered in pain and tasted copper in her mouth. She spit on the floor to find blood.
"Bastard," said Kat.
"Kat!" yelled Sam watching Kat fall to her knees clutching her stomach.
Michael woke up behind one of the beds he was thrown behind. He heard Sam yelling Kats name. He looked around finding the guns near him but one caught his eye. He couldn't believe it. The colt? He always thought that it was a tall tale. He heard his sister crying in pain and that gave him the strength to stand up and point the gun at Agramon. Agramon turned and before he could do anything, Michael pulled the trigger and the bullet went right into Agramons head. They watched as the body started shaking and what appeared to be lights flickering inside the body and then the body fell to the floor. Michael wanted to congratulate himself but didn't. He rushed over to Kats side the same time as Sam.
"You ok?" asked Sam and he whipped the blood from her mouth. Kat nodded. She just felt a little sore but knew that the pain stopped once Agramon was gone.
"Yeah, everything should go back to normal since he's gone."
"Then why isn't Baby waking up?" asked Dean who still had Baby on his lap. The three looked over and Sam moved over to Dean and Baby.
"Baby, come on," said Kat shaking her shoulders but Baby didn't move. "Baby, this isn't funny, sweetheart." Sam opened her eyes to find that they were just staring up at nothing, they weren't moving like in a dream. They seemed soulless.
"We have to take her to the hospital, she may have hit her head to hard," said Sam. Dean picked her up and the five of them headed towards the hospital.
Kat sat at Baby's side holding her hand and just staring at the breathing tube in her mouth. Baby had a concussion and was in a coma. She had gotten a few stitches in the head from hitting the wall pretty hard. Kat hasn't spoken since they brought Baby in. Sam walked in with some coffee for Kat and handed it to her. He pulled a chair next to her and held her hand. Kat looked up at him and couldn't help her lip tremble and the water in her eyes start to build up.
Dean leaned against the threshold looking at the sight in front of him and couldn't help but feel the heartbreak. He looked down the hall to see Sharon, Charlie, Cutter and Michael rushing down the hall. They went by Dean and stopped in their tracks seeing Baby lying there. Sharon was the first to walk over to her other side. She caressed her head. "Hi, Baby, it's Mama Bear." Sharon had tears falling down her cheeks.
"Baby girl," said Charlie. He was at the foot of the bed. "Come on you can beat this. You've had worse."
Baby found herself walking around what looked like to be a hospital. She turned the corner to see Dean leaning against a doorway. "Dean!" yelled Baby and she ran up to him. She scrunched her face up in confusion. "Hello! Dean!" She put her hand in front of his face. He couldn't see her. She looked into the room he was looking in to see her family. They were surrounding a bed and they were all crying. Baby looked around Michael to see herself lying there with a breathing tube down her throat and a few stitches in her head. "No." She shook her head and looked at her parents. "Daddy, mom, I'm right here!" She looked around at them all. They couldn't hear her, they couldn't see her…her worst fear was coming true. She looked over at the door way to see Dean walk away. There had to be a way for her to get some ones attention.
Baby ran out the door and followed Dean. "Dean, come on. You have to help me." She stopped when he stopped to sit on a bench in the hallway. He sighed and ran his hands over his face. Baby sat next to him. She felt her emotions running high. She wasn't dead, she could still feel. Maybe if she felt an emotion strong enough, she could get someone to hear her, maybe even see her. She thought about seeing her family in her room crying. She felt her emotions getting deeper. She turned to Dean and touched his face. He saw him twitch and turn his head. If she were there, he'd be staring straight at her. She concentrated on the emotions again. This time she put her hand on his and he looked down.
"Baby?" he asked. No, maybe. It had happened to him, why not to Baby. When he asked if it was her he felt something cold on his cheek. The same spot where she had kissed him the night of the party. "We have to find a way for you to get back in your body Baby Girl." He felt coldness on his hand again.
Baby loved how this was working. Dean was going to help her back into her body. Everything was going to be great. Baby heard an exclamation of curse words and then running feet.
"Dean!" yelled Sam coming through the door. "Baby's awake!"
"You did it Baby," said Dean and hopped off the bench and ran into the room. He saw her sitting up and pulling the breathing tube out of her mouth. She was panting and smiling at her family.
Baby stood at the door of the room watching the scene in front of her. She wasn't in her body, then who was?
