LAW OF FIVES
WOW: Stall. Bad things happen when Dean refuses Sam's help.
Disclaimer: Own nothing but a twisted imagination. Want evidence? Then read on ...
Five little syllables that meant Dean's life was hanging in the balance;
Five days since the wendigo hunt;
Five gashes raked across Dean's back;
Five times Sam offered to help; five times Dean pushed him away;
Five hours since Sam found his brother collapsed outside the shower stall, fever-racked body seizing on the bathroom floor;
Five times Sam prayed beside the parchment grey, unconscious form buried beneath a terrifying lattice of tubes and wires;
Five long, silent days and nights watching, waiting, hoping;
Then; a blink, a whisper ... "S'mmy, y'look like crap."
Five words which showed everything was going to be alright.
