Jinx stared at the road in front of her; she looked over to Ace sitting next to her and used all of her self control not to take a picture of her friend slumped in the seat and drooling. She turned the heater up and rolled her window down.
Jinx knew something was going on, something big and she knew it was something bad. She had been debating for the last couple of days whether to tell Ace or now. She didn't want to worry her with her suspicions, but she felt it in her bones.
The sign ahead of her read, "Noble's Diner 10 miles." Jinx chuckled, her hand on her stomach; if she didn't eat soon, she was going to restore to cannibalism.
"Don't even think about it." Muttered Ace as she shifted in her seat; Jinx smirked.
"I have no idea what you are talking about."
"Uh huh," Ace finally opened her violet eyes and wiped the drool off her mouth.
"I am starving."
"Well, I guess it's a good thing we are about to eat like royalty."
"Yum." Ace said unenthusiastically as Jinx rolled her eyes.
"Its that or we eat Baby, and we're not eating Baby." Jinx looked in the rear view mirror and smiled at Baby, her very big mutt who took up the entire back seat.
Ace groaned. "Diner food it is. Again."
"Well I am." Jinx looked at her.
"Hello, hot guys."
"How about gross? Unless you consider hill billies with missing teeth and beer guts hot."
Jinx moaned. "You know me so well." Ace made a face as she grabbed a clean shirt from the bag at her feet.
"How long till we get there?"
"Couple more miles."
"K." Ace pulled off her t-shirt and changed into a clean non drool covered one. She then tossed her bag in the back.
She heard a yelp. She winced and looked at Jinx. Jinx was glaring at her.
"Sorry, Baby. Keep forgetting you are back there," she muttered.
"So, you always say."
"I just might." Jinx laughed as Ace stuck her tongue out at her.
They pulled into the diner and Jinx swung the jeep into a space. Ace held on and cursed at her friend's driving.
"Just once, I would like it if you didn't try to kill us."
"Kill us? I'm just trying to kill you."
Ace grumbled and climbed out of the jeep. She walked towards the door as Jinx let Baby out for a walk and a pee. She opened the door and walked in.
Her heels clicked on the wood floor and her skirt flowed around her knees. She looked around pushing her sunglasses on her head. She moaned inwardly when she saw the only available seats were next to a table with two guys sitting at it.
One was already giving her the once over. 'Dude, not today.' she thought walking over and taking a seat. "Hello, sweetheart," he said.
"Look, I usually would let you off easy but... I am having a crappy day so how about this. You turn around and go back to stuffing your face to that diner crap that is going to give you a heart attack before you hit forty and leave me the hell alone. Because we both know I am out of your league," she said looking into his green eyes her violet ones hardening.
"Excuse me?" he asked.
"Dean, come on," the other one tried.
"Excuse you what? For being an idiot? Sure, but there is no cure."
"Ace, I see you are making friends," Jinx said walking over.
"Friends, I wouldn't even-"
"Jinx?" the other man asked his blue eyes widening.
"Sammy? Dude, is that you?" Jinx yelled as Sam stood up and hugged her.
Ace looked at the one called Dean. He was looking at Jinx shocked. He then smiled and stood up to hug her too.
"Dude, did I miss something?" she asked.
Jinx pulled back smiling. "I thought I told you to play nicely Ace?"
"Ace?" Dean questioned as Ace was about to start saying something, Jinx stepped between them.
"Play nicely you two. I still haven't eaten and I am not getting kicked out of here cause you two want a throw down." Ace looked at her and Jinx returned the look.
"Yeah, fine." Dean muttered as Jinx sat next to him, and Ace next to Sam; a safe distance from Dean.
Jinx hummed as she looked at the menu, Ace on the other hand was getting impatient about who these two guys were and how Jinx knew them.
Once Jinx put her menu down and raised her hand at the waitress. "You know what you want?" she asked as Ace glared at her; Jinx should know better then to fuck with her when she was mad.
"Okay." She muttered as the waitress came over and smiled widely, at Dean and Sam.
Dean smiled as Jinx looked at him. "Down boy," Jinx smiled at the waitress. "Doris, would you mind getting my friend here a Greek salad, onion rings and a diet coke, and I would love the deluxe pancake thing you got going on and a cup of coffee." Doris forced a smile.
"Coming right up."
Once Doris was out of ear shot, Jinx smiled at the boys. "Dean and Sam Winchester, meet my good friend Ace Nirvana."
"Ace Nirvana?" Dean questioned again as Sam intervened this time.
"I'm Sam, please ignore my brother. I am pretty sure he was dropped on his head."
"And I know you where." Sam looked at his brother, making a face.
"Ace as in lucky Dean."
"Really, how lucky?" Ace snorted.
"Not for you." The entire table laughed as Dean tired not to turn colors.
"So, Jinx, what are you doing around here?"
"Well, we just got off a job and-"
"Wait a damn second. She's a hunter?"
"I am not-"
"Yes, she is."
"I can speak for myself Jinx." Jinx dropped her head to the table, groaning.
"Yes I am a hunter, and a pretty good one I think."
"Sure sweetheart." Ace ground her teeth together.
"Don't call me sweetheart." Dean smirked; he found something to annoy her, and boy was he going to use it as long as he was going to be around her.
"Would you two just scamper off to the bathroom over there and fuck now? Get it over with? Please?" Jinx plead as both looked at her in horror.
"Right, like you two don't wanna. Its called sexual tension."
"Its called an STD." Ace scoffed as Sam and Jinx laughed again. Jinx looked at Dean.
"Its okay Batman."
"Yeah, cause you know I don't do priss anyways."
"That's cause we're out of your league."
Before a yelling match could ensue, the girls food showed up. "Oh thank god." Jinx said as she grabbed the plate from the waitress and started chowing down.
Ace rolled her eyes at her. "You know, we're in public Jinx."
"And your point?" she asked with her mouth full. Ace rolled her eyes again.
Sam chuckled. "Its okay. You get used to it, Dean eats the same way." Ace looked over at the pair. "I can tell."
Sam looked at the brunette with purple streaks and smiled; she was definitely something different, and any chick that talked to Dean like that was on his good list.
"So, you're a hunter then?"
"Yeah, about three years now. You?" Sam shook his head a bit.
"Been hunting my whole life."
"So like Jinx then?" she asked as he nodded.
They were silent a moment before Sam spoke again. "So, what were you doing before that?"
"Cool." Sam said as they started into a deep conversation about ancient artifacts.
Jinx looked at the two and smiled, then she looked at Dean; she knew something was up with him.
"So, what happened to your forehead? I mean, I knew you were ugly before, but why add more insult to injury darlin?" Dean looked at her, then over to Ace.
"I don't want to talk about it right now."
Jinx gave him a look. "And why not?"
"Jinx, don't fucking push it."
"But we both know that's what I am good at." Dean's jaw locked as he tried to control his anger.
"Jinx, just for once-" Jinx stood, catching Ace's and Sam's attention.
"You know what, that bathroom idea was such a good one, Dean and I are going to use it. You two can fuck in his back seat later. Come on Dean." She said as she grabbed his arm and tugged him up. They were gone before Sam or Ace could say anything else.
"I so don't wanna know what they are doing in there," Ace said eating an onion ring.
"Me neither. So, museum work?"
"Yeah. I was getting my history degree. At Harvard so-."
"Wait, you went to Harvard?"
"You're right. You are out of Dean's league."
"You know, Sam, I think I like you."
Sam smiled. He looked at Ace and nodded, "Likewise."
Jinx shoved Dean in the women's washroom and locked the door behind them. Dean leaned against the counter and smiled at her. Jinx crossed her arms across her chest.
He was giving her his cocky smile. "If you wanted to have sex all you had to do was ask," he said.
"What happened, Dean?"
"Can we not do this? I mean how long has it been since we saw each other?"
"Doesn't matter. I know you. Now talk to me."
Dean looked at the tile floor. He looked up at Jinx. If anyone would get it, she would. She had also lost her father to this life. He ran a hand over his face. He took a deep breath.
"There was an accident," he started.
"You mean besides your birth?"
"Very funny. I am trying to tell you what happened."
"I was banged up pretty bad. We were all in the accident. Sammy, me and... Dad. We were at the hospital. According to Samantha I almost died, but we both know he can be a drama queen. Anyway, I recovered and... We think the demon got Dad."
"What? Dean, what do you mean got Dad?"
"He's dead, Jinx. Dead and gone."
Jinx looked at Dean. She turned and looked at the door. She would not cry. John Winchester had been like a second father to her. She couldn't believe that she had lost him too. She blinked her eyes and told herself she wasn't going to cry. She was tougher than that. She turned back to Dean.
"I'm sorry, Dean," she said.
"Thanks. Now, it's just Sam and I."
"Come on, Dean. Just think about. It could be like the good old days. Me, you, Sam-."
"You forgetting about Prissy? I don't think I could stand hunting with her. Tell me the truth, she has almost gotten herself killed like a million times, right?"
"Why don't you come with us and find out?"
"I hate you."
"Oh, I know you do."
Ace looked towards the bathroom door; now this was just getting ridiculous.
"Remember how I said I didn't want to know?" she asked as Sam nodded. "Well, now I am wondering what is taking them so damn long."
Sam snorted. "You really don't want me answering that."
"Ha ha Sam." He smiled as Jinx and Dean walked out of the bathroom.
One look at her and Ace knew something was wrong. She knew that what she said she dragged Dean into the bathroom for wasn't what happened.
Sam looked at the pair, causing both to nod at him. Sam got it. Ace was still confused. "You okay Jinx?" Jinx nodded.
"Yeah," she said, then cleared her throat.
"Dean was just such a downer. I mean come on."
"Well I know I did."
"What Sammy?" he asked with a cocky grin.
"I don't even know how we are related." Dean chuckled as Ace ignored him.
"Yeah. You promise not to kill me." Ace did not like the sound of that.
"I mean, you know you love me right?"
"I think I know the next part and can I watch?" Jinx glared at him and he backed off.
"What is it?" Ace asked carefully as Jinx smiled.
Ace knew that smile; nothing good ever came of it. "Oh no, I am really going to hate this, aren't I?"
"Just fucking tell me."
"Well, remember how you told me we needed more help and I was thinking-"
"The outcome isn't going to change doll." Ace crossed her arms over her chest, glaring at Dean before she looked at Sam; he would make this bearable.
"So, we're hunting with them?" Ace asked as Jinx nodded.
"Yep." Ace groaned then looked at Dean.
"He sleeps in the car."
"Well, I was going to make him sleep in the bathtub, but the car works to."
"Now wait a second,"
"Don't fight it." Sam chuckled.
"Yeah Dean, remember the last time you two disagreed on something."
"Shut up Sam."
Ace rolled her eyes. "You two are adorable. Are we done now?"
Dean wanted to smack her, but he knew Jinx and Sam would gang up on him and kick his ass for hitting a girl.
Dean muttered a string of profanities under his breath as Jinx looked at her plate.
"But my pancakes-"
"We can take them with." Jinx sighed.
"I'll just feed Baby."
"You still have that old thing?"
Jinx looked at Dean confused. "Huh?"
"The jeep?" Jinx backhanded him.
"Course I still have Lila."
"Then who's Baby? Please don't tell me you've reproduced." Sam teased as Jinx's jaw dropped; it was Dean and Ace's turn to snicker.
"Yes Sam, and its Deans, congratulations both of you." Her tone was deadpan as she looked at him. "Its my dog." She said as Sam bit his lip to keep from laughing.
"Wait, not that mutt thing you found on the side of the road five years ago."
"So what if it is Dean?"
"Dean, I would advise you not to talk shit about Baby, I've seen her knock a dude out for it." Ace smirked.
"Actually, please continue to. It'll make this whole thing more pleasant if you're unconscious."
"Why, so you can take advantage of me?"
"Only in your dreams."
"Try nightmares sweetheart."
Ace was about to reach across the table and smack Dean, but Jinx shook her head.
"Okay troops," Jinx put some money on the table and stood.
"We'll meet you at the road house."
"You still drive like a crazy homicidal maniac?" Sam asked as Ace nodded.
"Oh no officer, I wasn't going over a hundred miles an hour." Ace said, imitating her.
Dean chuckled. "In that case, we'll meet you there. Gotta filler her up."
"I love when you talk to me dirty Dean." Jinx said with a wink as she walked towards the door, Ace following her out.
When she felt Dean's eyes on her ass she turned, about to say something when Jinx grabbed her arm and pulled her out. "You two either play nicely or I am handcuffing you together."
Both of their eyes widen. "You wouldn't."
"I would, cause then I'd get to pat your ass down for paperclips." She said with a smirk as Dean's eyes narrowed.
"Get going before I change my mind."
"Bye Sammy." She said as they walked out.
Ace slipped her sunglasses back on when the light hit her. "So, who's idea was this?" Ace asked as they climbed into the car, Ace making sure her seat belt was on tight before Jinx even had the chance to switch gears.
"It was a mutual thing." Ace nodded, staring at her friend.
"You going to tell me what's really going on?" Jinx shifted into reverse, slipping her sunglasses on.
"Didn't think so." Ace said as she turned the radio on; this was going to be a long drive.
A/N: Tell us what you think and we put out, and we put out real good. ;)
