Chapter 22

Then

{After the Bloody Mary incident}

"Hey Sam?"

"Yeah?"

"I heard it all" Dean said and Sam paled "I don't understand"

"Come on Sam!" Dean yelled and stood up "Don't play dump with me! You dreamed about Jessica's death? What the hell does that mean?"

Sam slowly stood up and stared at Dean "I dreamed about Jessica dying, days before it happen"

"So what? You are a psychic?" Dean asked "Don't answer that. Why didn't you tell me?"

"I was…I don't know!"

"I'm your brother Sam! You can't keep things like this to yourself!"

"Just give me a chance. Ask anything you like" John desperately said

"Okay" she said and crossed her arms over her chest "Who's that 'he' you are talking about?" she asked and John sighed "He came to me that night and told me that he wanted you dead and he was determined to kill you Louann"

"What? Why?"

"Apparently if you live, your brothers die"

"Who was that man?" Louann asked and John said his name "He introduced himself as Zachariah"

"Oh my god" she gasped and covered her mouth with her hand "I-I- I've met him"

"I understand" John said nodding "Look I'm staying in town for a few days so…" John started but Louann understood where he was going at

"Just stop" she said and raised her hand "You can't barge into my life like that after all these years and think that we are going to have a nice father-daughter reunion. I understand now what you did, why you did it! I'd probably do the same thing to protect a loved one. But what've been through all these years…I-I mean, what I mean is that…give me some time and space. I need to think" she said and turning her back at John, she walked away


Now

Dean and Sam had return to their motel after a long days work. They had talked to Sam friends Rebecca. They had watched the security tape that showed Zack (Rebecca's brother who's been charged of killing his girlfriend) entering his house. But the time wasn't right because his girlfriend was murdered about the same time that meant that he had to be in two places at the same time

"His eyes" Sam pondered

"What?" Dean said while anxiously glancing at his watch

"Zack's eyes were silver in that security footage, remember?" Sam asked "I'm telling you there is definitely something supernatural here"

"Yeah, yeah…"

"Okay, what is the matter with you?" Sam asked as Dean checked his watch for the fifth time

He sighed "Louann's not back yet"

"Dude she just texted saying she was grabbing some food, relax" Sam replied

"I'll relax when I'll see her, thank you very much" Dean said sarcastically and then both brothers fell into an uncomfortable silence. Sam hesitantly spoke

"You can't ignore it forever Dean" Sam said

"I don't understand"

"We have to talk it about sooner or later. Please" Sam said referring to the Bloody Mary incident where Dean heard all the things his reflection said about Jessica and the dreams. Dean stood up abruptly "You want to talk about it? FINE! Please explain why you lied to your own brother?"

"Dean come on man! I was scared; confused…I didn't want it to be true"

"That doesn't change the fact that you lied to me Sam. I could help" Dean said calming down a little. Sam laughed "How? Were you going to hold my hand and say that Jessica's death wasn't because of me and that I'm not really a freak of nature?"

"She didn't die because of you Sam" Dean said while shaking his head "It wasn't your fault"

"I saw her death DAYS before it happened Dean! I COULD HAVE WARNED HER!" Sam shouted interrupting Dean while tears were ready to fall from his eyes

"Come on man, you can't blame yourself. It wasn't your god-damned fault" Dean said again and Sam stared at the floor "Tell that to her" he said quietly and slowly walked towards the bathroom and closed the door behind him. Dean just stood there awkwardly scratching his head "Man things are messed up" he said and at that moment the motel door opened and Louann walked inside

"Hey what's up?" she greeted her twin and closed the door behind her

"Not much" he said and shrugged

'Where's Sam?" she asked as she put the food she bought on the kitchen counter

"Bathroom, what did you bring me?" Dean asked excitedly "Is it pie?"

"Sorry they only had cake" Louann said and almost laughed at the painful expression Dean had "Just kidding, here's your pie" she then said and handed him the pie

"You are the best!" Dean grinned and kissed her on the cheek. A minute later Sam came out of the bathroom, obviously distressed. Louann noticed that but she chose not comment on that "Sammy since the pie is all for our pig brother over there" she said and pointed at Dean who had already devoured half the pie "want some fries and a burger?" she asked him smiling, trying to forget what happened between her and John. Sam looked over at Dean who nodded instantly. They were not to tell Louann about what happened

"I'd love that"


{The next morning}

Louann was pissed. If Sam and Dean weren't her brothers, she'd grab a gun and shoot them right in the head. She hated waking up so early in the morning. She thought 10am was early enough, imagine 5:30am

"Alright, so what are we doin' here at 5:30 in the morning?" Dean asked while leaning on one of the cars. Louann remained silent, glaring at her siblings

"I realized something. The videotape shows the killer goin' in, but not coming' out" Sam explained

"And you dragged me here for this?" Louann said and Sam raised an eyebrow "What is wrong with her?" he asked Dean. Things were still a little awkward between them but they decided to leave the matter for now "Well you've heard of the mean drunker, right?" Dean said and Sam nodded "She's a mean waker. Wake her up in the morning and you have to deal with the consequences. Right sister dearest?"

"Fuck you Dean"

"I love you too. See?" he said and turned to Sam, who whispered "Why didn't you warn me?"

"Don't talk to her directly and you'll live" Dean whispered back

"I can still hear you…jerks" she said as she yawned

"As I was saying, there should be a trail to follow. A trail the police would never pursue" he explained and Louann couldn't stand her brothers talking about the case. She went and leaned on a nearby telephone pole, still yawning like crazy. But after a minute or so she felt touching something…sticky. She turned around and saw that her right arm was smeared in blood "COME ON!" she shouted making her brother stare at her "What happened?" both brothers asked

"I just found your stupid trail that's what! UGH!" she complained

"Blood! So somebody came this way" Sam stated "Aw good job Lou!" Dean said and went to ruffle her hair but her voice stopped him "Ruffle my hair and I'll gut you"

Dean went to reply to her comment but an ambulance driving past them made him stop. They exchanged a look and followed the ambulance

The sibling's were quickly at the crime scene. Sam, Dean and a less cranky Louann observed the police shoving an Asian man in handcuffs into the car

"What happened?" Dean asked a nearby woman

"He tried to kill his wife. Tied her up and beat her" the woman replied and shook her head "I used to see him going to work in the morning. He'd wave, say hello. He seemed like such a nice guy"


When the police and the crowd had left, it was up to them to investigate. Sam searched the garbage cans in the back while Dean searched the front and Louann was keeping an eye out for any unwanted company

"Hey!" Dean shouted at his brother and sister "Listen to this. I just talked to the patrolman who was first on the scene, heard this guy, Alex's story. Apparently the dude was driving home from a business trip when his wife was attacked"

"But he couldn't be at two places at the same time" Louann said catching up

"Exactly! Then he sees himself in the house, police think he's a nutjob" Sam said, slowly all the pieces falling to their place

"You are the experts, what creature can do such a thing?" Louann asked

"Maybe a shapeshifter?" Sam guessed and Dean shrugged "Why not? Every culture in the world has shapeshifter lore. You know, legends of creatures who can transform themselves into animals or other men" Dean explained and looked at Louann

"Did you just…dummied it down for me?" she asked and Dean's smirk was her answer I gotta start reading stat she thought

"But something is bugging me" Sam said "The trail suddenly stops, at both houses, how can this happen? Do shifters fly?"

"Nah…but you know Sammy, there is up and then…there is down" he said smirking and nodded towards a manhole

"Please tell me you are not going-" Louann started

"Climb down the manhole and enter the sewers? Of course we are" Dean replied

"Wait…we?"

"If there is a shifter on the loose, I don't want you out of my sight"

"I don't think it's a good idea Dean" Louann said as she glanced at the manhole

"Relax, what can possibly go wrong?"

TBC


After a last big gasp of clear air Louann followed her brothers into the manhole "I can't believe I'm doing this" she said mostly to herself

"Re-"

"Tell me to relax one more time and I'll scratch the Impala" she threatened. Dean's eyes widened "You wouldn't!" "Try me" Louann challenged

"Come on guys focus" Sam said and pointed at a bile of blood and skin on the ground "The shapeshifter is definitely using the sewer systems to move around"

"I think I'm going to throw up" Louann said while looking at the bile of blood and skin "I second that" Dean said and a thought crossed his mind "You know, I just had a sick thought. When the shapeshifter changes shape—maybe it sheds"

"That is sick" Sam said and Louann agreed

"We need guns" Dean said and made their way out of the sewer


By the time the siblings exited the sewer it was night. Dean was loading his guns with silver bullets while Sam was talking on the phone with Rebecca and by the sound of it something was wrong

"What happened?" Louann asked when Sam disconnected the call

"Uh Rebecca knows that we lied to her and that Dean wasn't really a detective" he said with a sad face

"I hate to say ' I told ya so' but I told ya so" Dean said "You lie to your friends because if they knew the real you, they'd be freaked"

"And what am I suppose to do? Act like you?"

"Hell yeah! I'm awesome" Dean said cocking his gun and taking a flashlight out of the trunk "Uh guys? What am I supposed to do?" Louann asked

"Well we can't leave you alone" Sam said "We are going blind here; the shifter might not be in his lair"

"Yeah. You are coming with us" Dean agreed with Sam and handed Louann a small silver gun "But I don't know how to shoot"

"Just in case, we'll have your back if anything happens" Dean said and Louann after eyeing the gun for a minute she grabbed it and shoved it in the back of her jeans

"Okay let's do this" she said and in the rabbit hole they went


"Guys I think we are close to its lair" Louann announced, her nose and mouth covered by a scarf because she couldn't stand the smell

"What makes you say that?" Dean asked who was leading the way

"Because there's another puke-inducing pile next to your face brother" she said and both she and Sam laughed when Dean nearly fall to the ground

"Cute" he commented and turned to look at his twin

"Who knows how many murders he's gotten away with?" Sam said and suddenly a pair of silver eyes appeared when Sam shined his flashlight

"DEAN BEHIND YOU"! Sam shouted drawing his gun and keeping Louann behind him to protect her "LOOK OUT" she shouted when the shapeshifter raised his fist and punched Dean hard making fly towards the wall. Sam shot at the shifter a couple of times but he had started running

"Oh my god are you okay?" Louann asked and helped Dean stand up. His left shoulder was injured

"Get the son of a bitch!" Dean yelled at Sam, who quickly run behind the shapeshifter "Are you okay?" Louann repeated the question

"Yeah, yeah come on" he said and both he and Louann run behind Sam


"Lou you have to stay here" Dean said when they got out of the sewers. He fished into his pockets and drew his car keys "Take the keys and lock yourself into the car, okay?"

"Yes what about you?" she asked

"We are going to split up" Sam said and Dean nodded "Alright. We meet at the Impala. GO!" he said and everyone started heading at separate directions unaware that the shapeshifter was watching them with an amused grin on his face "Eeny meeny miny mo, catch a tiger by the toe, if he hollers, let him go, eeny meeny miny mo…" the shifter said and he pointed his finger at a certain Winchester's direction
