Dean groans as he peels his t shirt off. That 'geist was one vicious bastard. The bite in his side hurts like a sonofabitch, but hell, he's not gonna cry about it.

Holy water on the wound. He re-checks the salt-lines.

Dad's two states away. Sam's at Stanford.

It's all good.

Dean showers until his lean, freckled skin prunes. Weapons check after that. Then, bed.

On the edge of sleep Dean smells baked cookies warm from the oven. A soft kiss on his forehead. Slim fingers brush lovingly through his hair.

Mom, Dean murmurs softly.

I'm here, sweetie. I'm here.
