The Million Dollar Question

E/O Drabble Challenge, word: Stall

Set: After 6.14, "Mannequin 3: The Reckoning"

Summary: There is always a first time. Even for certain questions.

A/N: I just couldn't get rid of that question – it haunted me. Has Dean ever thought about it? What is it that he wants? Can he ever get it? And do we even want him to get it? :-) Hehe, now it's your turn – think about it.


"What do you want?"

Her voice spun through his mind like a merry-go-round gone nuts, faster and faster, until he thought his brain gained enough speed to lift and leave this limited space.

What do YOU want?

Simple question, yet he was stalling for time, not able to answer it.

He knew how to do what had to be done.

With passion, with a sense of responsibility, with fear and desperation.

It hadn't given him what he wanted.

His family. All of them.

Lisa. Ben. And Sam.

This was his second life.

Maybe it was time to answer the question.
