Chloe Winchester looked at her mom, Grace in confusion, while she tried to make sense of everything that had just happened. Suddenly everything came rushing back to her, Kaylee making a deal with a demon, sacrificing herself, Crowley shooting her and lastly dying in Dean's arms.
"I'm dead, ain't i?" Chloe asked her mom.
"Yes you are." Grace said sadly.
"What is this place? Is it hell?"
"So where am i?"
"You're in between."
"In between what?"
"Heaven and hell, i brought you here."
"Cause heaven needs your help." Grace said.
Grace took a deep breath before saying,"there's a little girl in Virginia, that i need you to find."
"How? I'm dead."
"I'm sending you back."
"What?" Chloe asked in shock, then added with a hopeful smile,"really?"
"Yes, it's not your time."
"Wait, are you my guardian angel?"
Grace smiled before saying,"yes i am and have been since i died. I've been protecting you and the Winchester brothers."
"You know about Dean and Sam?"
"Of course i do, do you think meeting Dean was a coincidence? You two were meant to meet, fall in love, fight evil and raise a family together. You're sole mates."
"So you brought us together?"
"No, some people are just destined to be together. Like Dean's parents, your dad and i, and of course you and Dean." Grace explained.
"So Dean and I are suppose to have a long, happy life with kids and everything?"
"Yes that was the plan. I already had to save Dean once and now it's your turn."
"When did you save Dean?"
"At the old house."
Chloe looked at her with a confused look, then she remembered, the house fire when he was trying to destroy the ghost, Taylor Blake.
"That was you?" Chloe asked.
"That was me, i pulled him out of the fire."
"Wow." Chloe whispered, then added,"so can you send me back now? I need to get back to Dean."
"Soon, but first i need to tell you about the little girl. You and Dean need to protect her, she's really important."
"Important to heaven?"
"No hell, she's the key to releasing Lucifer."
Sam walked out of the library and paused when he saw Kaylee sitting on the couch, she had her knees pulled up to her chest and was looking out the window with a sad look on her beautiful face. It's not the first time Sam has found her like that since Chloe died two days ago.
While Kaylee's been sitting around crying, Dean's been sitting alone in the basement with Chloe's body. One minute he's crying, the next he's swearing revenge and the next he's yelling at Kaylee, blaming her for losing Chloe. Needless to say, things have been tense in the house since losing Chloe and Sam feared they would get worse.
Bobby walked up behind Sam and nodding his head toward Kaylee while asking,"is she doing any better?"
"No, she's hardly sleeping or eating. All she does is cry and blame herself." Sam said sadly.
"Your brother still in the basement?"
"Yeah, he said he won't leave her."
Bobby sighed before saying,"we're going to have to bury her soon, it's not healthy keeping her down there."
"I've tried to tell him that, but he swears he's going to find a way to bring her back and when he does he'll need her body." Sam said, then added,"speaking of which, have you found anything yet?"
"No, I've looked in every book and talked to every contact i have. I don't think there's a way we can bring her back."
Sam pinched the bridge of his nose and sighed as he tried to keep the tears away, he too was devastated at losing Chloe but he was trying to be strong for his brother and Kaylee.
"We need to talk to your brother, he has to bury her, it's the right thing to do." Bobby said.
Sam sighed again before saying,"alright let's go talk to him. But it's not going to be easy."
As Sam and Bobby walked further into the living room, Kaylee looked over at them before asking,"what's going on?"
"We're going to talk to Dean, it's time to say good-bye to Chloe." Sam said sadly.
Kaylee's eyes filled with tears at the mention of her sisters name. She slowly stood up from the couch then said,"I want to come too. I need to say good-bye."
Sam lightly grabbed her hand as they followed Bobby down the stairs and into the basement. Chloe's body was laid out on a long wooden table, Dean was sitting in a chair beside the table, staring at Chloe with tears in his eyes.
Sam stood beside Dean and cleared his throat, Dean looked up at him, as if seeing him for the first time. He moved his eyes over to Kaylee and lowered his eyebrows in anger.
"Why are you here?" Dean asked her.
"I-I wanted to say good-bye to Chloe." She answered him quietly.
He stood up then said angrily,"no i mean, what are you still doing here? Haven't you done enough?"
"Dean, don't start." Sam warned him.
"No screw that, she's the reason Chloe is dead." He walked toward Kaylee and pointed his finger in her face before yelling,"if you wouldn't have made that dumb ass deal, none of this would have ever happened. You killed your sister, congratulations."
"I'm sorry Dean, you have no idea how sorry i am about all of this." She whispered with tears in her eyes.
Dean scoffed before saying,"just get out of here, i can't stand to even look at you Kaylee."
"Get the hell out of here." Dean yelled at her.
Kaylee turned her head to the side to look at Chloe's dead body, she whispered,"I'm sorry sis."
She looked at Dean one last time before turning around, walking up the stairs and out of the basement.
"Look Dean, I know you're upset, but you shouldn't take it out on Kaylee. She's hurting too." Sam said.
"Just leave me alone." Dean whispered.
Sam sighed before walking away from his brother, he walked up the stairs in search of Kaylee. He found her upstairs in the bedroom they shared.
"What are you doing?" Sam asked her.
She had her back toward him as she threw her clothes in a duffel bag. She turned to look at Sam before answering his question,"I'm sorry Sam but i can't stay here anymore."
"Of course you can. I'm sorry that Dean yelled at you, he just needs someone to blame for all of this and your the closest thing."
"No he's right, it is my fault." Kaylee sat on the edge of the bed then cried out,"why would she do this? Why would she sacrifice herself to save me? She should have let me die."
Sam walked across the floor and kneeled in front of her before saying,"she did it cause she loves you and was willing to do anything to save you."
"We have to find a way to get her back, we can't just let her rot in hell."
"I know, we're working on it." Sam said, as he pushed a lock of blond hair behind her ear then added,"so will you stay?"
She took a deep breath then blew it out before saying,"i don't know Sam. Me being here is making things worse for Dean and he's already going through so much. Besides i need time to grieve too, in the last week I've lost my mom and my sister."
"But you shouldn't be alone." Sam said, as he laid his hand on the side of her face.
She placed her hand on top of his and said,"I'm not alone, no matter where i go i have you."
Sam leaned forward and lightly pressed his lips against hers before whispering,"just promise me you won't do anything stupid."
"I promise." She whispered back.
After Kaylee and Sam left the basement, Bobby looked at Dean before saying,"son i know you're going through a hard time, trust me i know how it feels to lose a wife. When i lost Karen..."
"You were married to Karen for years, I only had Chloe for a few months. It's not the same." Dean interrupted coldly.
"When you love someone, the time doesn't matter. It's all the same, but there comes a time when you have to let go."
Dean sat down in the chair beside Chloe before saying,"I can't do it Bobby, i can't tell her good-bye. I can't let her go."
Bobby laid a comforting hand on his shoulder, as Dean placed a hand over his mouth to hold in a sob. A stream of tears ran down his cheeks as he looked at Chloe laying in front of him.
He still couldn't believe that she was gone, he kept thinking this was a nightmare and he would wake up laying beside her in bed, but every time he opened his eyes he still saw her lifeless body laying in front of him.
Bobby cleared his throat before saying,"listen i know you don't want to talk about this, but i think it's best if we bury Chloe now."
"No." Dean said quietly.
"It would be best for everyone, like closure. You can't move on until you let go."
"I said no." Dean yelled.
"J-just think about it ok?"
Dean ignored him as Bobby turned around and walked up the stairs. Dean leaned forward and lightly touched Chloe's cold face before saying quietly,"God i miss you so much. I miss your beautiful blue eyes and smile, i would give anything to see them again." He sniffled before continuing,"Why did you do this? Why did you do something so stupid?"
He chuckled angrily then said,"of course you can't answer that cause your dead. You left me Chloe, you left me all alone and i need you. I need you so bad baby."
Chloe and her mom Grace were standing in the corner listening to every word, Chloe looked at Dean with tears in her eyes before saying to her mom,"i never should have made that deal, not being with Dean is worse then death."
"Don't worry my sweet girl you will be back in his loving arms soon, besides someone had to save Kaylee and you did. Now she'll live a long life cause of you."
"Can you send me back now?"
"Of course." Grace said with a smile.
"I love you mom."
"I love you too Clover." Grace said before placing a finger on Chloe's forehead.
Dean wiped a tear off of his cheek then grabbed Chloe's cold hand, he tightened his hold on her hand as he looked down at the floor while new tears filled his eyes.
Suddenly he felt her hand twitch, he quickly looked up at her face in surprise. He chuckled softly to himself before saying quietly,"i must be going crazy."
He quickly stood up from the chair when he felt her hand twitch again, he slowly laid a finger against her neck and cried in joy when he felt a slow pulse.
He pushed a lock of her hair out of her face before softly calling out her name. She slowly opened her eyes and looked up at him before whispering,"Dean?"
Dean leaned down and rested his head on her chest, happy tears fell from his eyes when he heard her heart beating. He wrapped his arms around her before asking,"is this real?"
"It's real, I'm really here baby." She said with a smile.
He raised his head to look at her then leaned forward to softly kiss her lips. After the kiss he rested his forehead against hers then whispered,"I thought i lost you."
She smiled again before whispering back,"you won't ever lose me, your stuck with me forever."
