I KNOW THAT FACE

WOW sly. Patching up once again after a tough hunt; Dean's adamant it doesn't hurt.

But Sam knows better …

Sam's POV.

Disclaimer: I own nothing but an overworked laptop and a disturbed mind

I know that face.

The one that says 'it doesn't hurt',

The one that says 'do your worst, I can take it',

I've seen it before and wasn't convinced by it then …

And I'm not now.

Bloodless lips pressed hard into a plastic smile,

Eyes looking everywhere except at me so I can't see his pain,

A gasp slyly disguised as a cough …

I know it hurts, dude.

It tears me apart to see the scars across his back,

Especially when I'm adding to them,

He calls me 'bitch' and says it doesn't hurt …

but I know that face.

xxxxx
