A Gambler's Soul

E/O Drabble Challenge, word: card.

Musketeer word: fair.

Set: in season 6.

Summary: There's a time for playing and a time for fighting – and there may come a time for both, cuz the devil loves playing...

A/N: Happy Thanksgiving my friends, and may no turkey's ghost come to seek revenge :-)

A strange sentiment melted the familiar features. "Last time I gambled for your life, remember?"

Dean nodded. He knew. And he'd do anything to win Sam back. By his rules!
