Uncle Richard took him in after the fire in Lawrence.

Sam was just a baby. The last one left.

"Them's the breaks." Uncle Richard winked dark gold at him, years later. "It's unfortunate, but that's life, kiddo."

The life Sam has now, full of blood and magic and wild weather, it's all he's got left.

That, and Uncle Richard.

Uncle Richard dies one day, his face frozen in disbelief.

"Hey, Sammy," Dean says softly. He lowers the special Colt to his side. "I'm here, bro'. I'm here."

Sam forgets how to breathe.

Everyone leaves Sam, but sometimes they come back.
