A/N: Website posting issues day 10 ... this is an EO Drabble which never saw the light of day, but I'm using it to try out a trick for posting new SN stories while the website is still doing ... well, sweet nothing basically!

Thank you Yohko Bennington for the tip - heck, there's some clever people on this site ...

Disclaimer: I own nothing, it's pitiful ... really!

APPLE PIE LIFE

Dean's apple pie life is missing one vital ingredient … Spoilers for 6.1 - Exile on Main Street

Xxxxx

So here I am; square peg in a round hole.

Lost without Sam.

Empty without my brother.

We eat lunch; Lisa kisses me as she sits beside me.

I love her, I think she loves me.

I play ball with Ben; the kid needs a male role model. I hope I'm a decent one.

I love the kid, I think he's fond of me.

I've got friends now … and a paycheck.

I like to spend it on Lisa.

But I still don't fit.

I promised Sam I would taste the apple pie life.

But the apples are sour.
