Emma Clark tossed and turned in her bed as memories from her childhood invaded her dreams. It has been a long time since she had dreamed or even thought about living in South Dakota. Her and her parents lived there until she was 8, now 15 years later she was dreaming about her old next door neighbors, Bobby and Karen Singer.
"Uncle Bobby, Uncle Bobby." A young Emma cried, as she ran to the front door of the house.
"What is it Little EJ?" He asked, as he opened the front door.
She threw her small arms around his waist and begin to cry,"daddy says we are moving."
He patted her small back and sighed,"I know sweetie, your parents called us earlier and told us the news."
She looked up at him,"I don't want to leave. I want to stay here with you and Aunt Karen."
Bobby squatted down till he was face to face with the young girl then he said,"I wish you could stay, but you need to go with your parents. They would miss you a lot if you didn't go with them."
"Nuh uh," She yelled as she placed her hands on her hips, even at a young age she was full of attitude.
He chuckled at her before saying,"Yes they would, they love you very much."
"How? They are never at home." She cried.
He honestly didn't know what to say, she was right, her parents were gone all the time. Which was why the young girl was always at their house. It was going to kill him and Karen when they had to say 'good-bye' to little Emma. She had become like their child, but at the end of the day, she wasn't theirs and she had to go with her own parents.
Bobby looked at the little girl and felt his heart break at the sight of her. Her tiny shoulders were slumped and her lower lip was poked out in a pout as tears silently fell down her face.
"Hey, look at me." He said, he waited till she looked up at him before he continued,"I promise you, Karen and I will keep in touch with you. And maybe your parents will let you come visit us one summer."
Just like that her tears went away and she gave him a huge grin,"really? You think they will?"
"If you are a good girl, maybe they will."
She clapped her hands,"Oh i really really hope they do."
He chuckled as he hugged her,"I'm really going to miss you EJ."
"I'm going to miss you too, Uncle Bobby." She said with a sad smile.
Emma opened her eyes and sighed, it had been a long time since she dreamed about 'Uncle Bobby'. He wasn't really her uncle, that's just what she had always called him cause him and his wife were more like family to her then her own parents. Bobby and Karen were the ones who fixed her dinners,tucked her in at night, checked under the bed for monsters and read her a bedtime story while her parents were busy working or going to office parties. They were both lawyers and thought a career was more important then family. Even moving all the way to California didn't change things.
Unfortunately, she lost touch with the Singers through the years and hasn't seem them in 15 years. Last time she heard anything about them was some years ago, she heard Karen had died and Emma had locked herself in her room for few a week to grieve. Her mother didn't understand why she was so upset about some woman dying, what her mother didn't understand was Karen was like a mother to her and it broke her heart that she was now gone.
Emma sat up in her bed and wiped the sleep out of her blue eyes. She glanced at her alarm clock then sighed, she was running late. She quickly jumped out of bed and ran to the small bathroom. She had to hurry if she was going to make it to her parents house before work. Once a week, she drove over to her parents house for a quick visit. Now that they were both retired from work, they both wanted to be a part of her life.
"It's a few years to late, but at least they're trying." She thought to herself, as the warm water rained down on her body.
She quickly bathed then jumped out of the shower, threw on a pair of jeans and a nice shirt then put on a little make-up. She left her shoulder length blond hair down to dry on it's own while she ran out the door. After making sure the door to her apartment was locked she ran to her car and made the short drive to her parents house.
She looked at her watch and cussed out loud, this visit was going to have to be a short one if she was going to make it to work on time. She was recently hired to work at the third best newspaper in town, which would be good if there was more than three newspapers in town. But, she didn't care, she loved her job. Her parents wanted her to be a lawyer like them, she even went to Stanford University for awhile to please them till she realized she didn't want to end up like them. She quickly quit Standford,registered at a journalism school and never looked back. To this day she was still happy with the choice she made.
She turned into her parents drive way and parked her older Honda accord beside her dad's brand new sports car. Her dad always had to have the newest cars while she drove the same car she had in high school. Since she went against the career they chose for her, they refused to help her financial, but she hope they would change their minds when she asked them for a loan today. She was falling a little behind with her bills and student loans.
She used her key to let herself into the house, she walked into the kitchen expecting to see her mother cooking breakfast and quietly humming to herself. She was surprised to see a empty kitchen, she walked into the living room expecting to see her father sitting in his favorite chair watching CNN. She was surprised again to see a empty living room.
"Maybe they're still sleeping." She thought to herself, as she walked up the stairs and headed to their bedroom.
She knocked lightly on the door before calling out,"mother? Father? You awake?"
After not receiving a answer, she slowly opened the door and looked inside. She cried out in shock at the scene before her, her parents were laying flat on their backs in their bed, their hearts were ripped out of their chest.
Emma covered her mouth with her hand and slowly backed out of the room. She turned around and quickly ran out of the house. She grabbed her cell phone out of her car and quickly called 911. She leaned against her car and looked at her phone, she tried to think of someone to call but her mind went blank.
Suddenly she had a idea, she would call the one person who was always there for her when she was younger. Even though it has been a long time, she knew in her heart that he would still be there for her.
She quickly called 411(information) on her cell phone.
"City and state please?" The computerized voice said on the other end.
"Sioux Falls, South Dakota" She said.
"Bobby Singer." She said, with a small smile on her face.
a/n-Hey everyone :) I decided to start a new supernatural story with a new original character, this story takes place around season 2 but it doesn't really follow the season. I hope everyone enjoys it and don't worry the Winchester brothers will be in this story too. Also i wasn't sure what year Bobby's wife died so I'm kind of guessing when it happened to go along with my storyline. I will be doing a lot of guessing on things for this story, so if i ever make a mistake, please forgive me and just go with it lol Anyways please let me know what you think and thank you for reading :)
