It had been a little over three weeks since Dean, Sam, Chloe, Kaylee and Madilyn left Bobby's house and come back home to North Carolina. In those three weeks, Dean and Chloe had begin the process of adopting Madilyn and getting the nursery ready for their new baby, who was expected to arrive any day now.
Chloe stood in the middle of the room and smiled with her hands resting on her pregnant belly, as she glanced around the nursery for the first time. The day before, Kaylee and Sam had painted the room a light blue color, while Dean put together the dark brown crib and changing table. Kaylee had hung up pictures of monkeys, giraffes and other animals on the wall as well as placed different stuffed animals on shelves and any other flat surface all around the room. There was also a huge brown chair in the corner by the crib and brown curtains above the windows.
Chloe had wanted to help out, but Dean, Sam and Kaylee had insisted she take it easy as they decorated and surprised her, and she was surprised. She loved the room and she knew LJ would too.
Dean stood in the door way and watched his wife glance around the newly decorated nursery before walking into the room and wrapping his arms around her waist.
He lightly kissed the top of her head then asked,"so how do you like the room?"
"I love it. You, Sam and Kaylee did a amazing job." Chloe answered with a smile.
"Madilyn helped a little. She picked that out." Dean said, as he pointed to a small stuffed giraffe sitting in the crib. It was dark brown with light blue polka-dots.
"It's adorable." Chloe said, as she picked up the giraffe and hugged it to her chest before sitting it back down in the crib.
"She's really excited to meet her little brother." Dean said.
"I know, it's all she talks about. She even wished he would come on her birthday a few days ago." Chloe said.
On October 25, they had had a small birthday party for Madilyn, who for her wish had wished for LJ to be born so they would have the same birthday, she was disappointed when her wish didn't come true.
"Is that why she was sad that night? Cause her wish didn't come true?" Dean asked.
"That would be the reason. But i told her, he will be here soon." Chloe said, as she smiled and rubbed her stomach.
"Which is why I don't think I should go with Sam on this case." Dean pointed out.
The day after Madilyn's birthday, Sam had come across a case in a near-by town. Dean was unsure on if he should go, but Chloe had been reassured him it would be ok.
"Babe, I told you, everything will be fine." Chloe said, as she laid her hands on either side of Dean's face.
"But what if you go into labor before I get back?" Dean asked.
"Then I'll call you, the town you're going to isn't that far away and I bet you can make it back here ten minutes flat." Chloe pointed out.
"Ten? No, my baby can make it in five." Dean argued, he knew his Impala could get him where he needed to go fast.
Chloe laughed then said,"yes, you are right, your baby could get you here in five. So see no problems."
"I don't know." Dean said with a sigh, then added,"I just hate leaving you here alone."
"I won't be alone. I'll have Kaylee and Madilyn with me."
"Maybe Kaylee should go with Sam, it's just a simple salt and burn case. She had been asking to go on a hunt and to learn more." Dean suggested.
"I don't think Kaylee is ready for that."
"You jumped right into it and become a great hunter."
"That's cause I'm a bad-ass." Chloe said with a laugh.
"That is true." Dean said laughing back.
"But seriously, she still has some things to learn. Sam is still teaching her how to hit a target without jumping every time she pulls the trigger."
"Ok you're right, she should stay here." Dean said, then added as he wrapped his arms around her and held her close,"I just hate leaving you."
"I know, but me and baby will be ok." She promised him.
"You'll call me the minute you think you're in labor?" Dean asked.
"I'll call you the second I'm in labor, I promise."
"We'll finish this case as soon as we can, then I'm coming home to you ok?"
"You better." She joked with a smile.
He leaned forward to give him a long sweet kiss, then whispered,"I'm going to miss you babe."
"I'll miss you too." She whispered back.
"Ok I'm going to go grab my bag, say bye to Madilyn then we'll hit the road." Dean said, as he begin to walk out of the room.
"Have you told Madilyn you're leaving yet?" Chloe asked, before he left the room.
"No." Dean answered with a sad sigh, then added as he turned around to face her,"I was putting it off till the last minute cause I'm not sure how she will take it."
"You want me to talk to her with you?" Chloe suggested.
"No I got it, besides you need to go lay down." Dean told her.
"I can't even walk you to the door?"
"Fine, I'll go rest if I can get a kiss." She said smiling, as she walked toward him and wrapped her arms around his neck.
"I can do that." He said smiling back before he gave her another long kiss.
"Alright, time to rest." He said after the kiss was over.
He laid a arm around her shoulders as they walked across the hall to their bedroom. Chloe sat down in the king-sized bed, as Dean picked up his duffel bag.
"Be back soon, don't have that baby until I get back." He warned with a smile.
"I won't." She said, then joked,"I'll keep my knees squeezed together till you get here."
He laughed then said,"bye babe, love you."
"Love you too, be safe." She said, as she laid back on the bed and got comfortable.
Dean smiled at her then turned around to leave the room, if he stood there any longer he would never leave. He hated leaving his family for a few days, but deep down he knew he needed to. There were people out there that needed his and Sam's help, he was just thankful he had a wife who understood and didn't make him feel more guilty then he already did.
He slowly made his way down the stairs and walked into the living room, where Kaylee and Madilyn were sitting on the couch watching cartoons.
"Hey, where's Sam?" Dean asked, as he walked further into the room.
"In our room, packing." Kaylee answered.
"Daddy guess what?" Madilyn called out to Dean.
"What?" Dean asked with a smile, he would never get tired of hearing her call him 'Daddy'.
"Aunt Kaylee is taking me to get a halloween costume today." Madilyn answered with a huge grin on her face.
"Really?" Dean asked.
"What can i say, the girl loves halloween." Kaylee said with a shrug.
"You sure she didn't get it from you and Chloe?" Dean asked, then added,"Chloe told me how much you two loved to dress up and go trick or treating when you were kids."
"We may have told her some stories." Kaylee answered with a innocent smile.
"I'm going to be a princess." Madilyn called out, then added,"or a witch."
"Stick with a princess." Dean told her, then said quietly to Kaylee,"she can dress up, but no trick or treating. You know what goes bump in the night."
"I know." Kaylee said, then added,"but don't worry, no trick or treating. We're just going to eat candy and watch movies here."
"Sounds like fun." Dean said softly. He hoped he and Sam can make it back home in time for Madilyn's first halloween with them.
"Are you leaving?" Madilyn asked Dean, as she noticed him holding a bag for the first time.
"Um...yeah." Dean answered slowly, he was dreading this conversation.
"Why?" Madilyn asked sadly.
"I'm going to go help Sam." Kaylee said, as she stood up from the couch and left the room to give Dean and Madilyn privacy.
Dean sat down on the couch beside Madilyn as he tried to think of the right words to say. Before he could say anything she spoke.
"Do you have to go save someone?" She asked.
"Yes." Dean answered, then added,"people are getting hurt in a town near-by, so we have to go save them."
"Ok." She whispered.
"You understand that the last thing i want to do is leave you right?" Dean asked her.
She nodded her head then said,"I know, but they need you and Uncle Sammy."
"Yes they do, but we'll be back very soon."
"I know, you and Uncle Sammy will stop the evil then come home."
"That's right." Dean said, as he kissed the top of her head.
"I'm going to miss you daddy." Madilyn whispered before wrapping her arms around his neck and hugging him.
While Dean hugged her back, Sam and Kaylee walked into the living room. They smiled at the touching scene in front of them.
"Ok, I'm ready to go." Sam said softly to Dean, he hated to ruin the moment, but he knew they needed to hit the road soon.
Madilyn pulled away from Dean, then ran over to Sam and jumped into his arms. He quickly dropped his duffel bag to catch her before hugging her tight.
"I'm going to miss you too Uncle Sammy." She whispered.
"We're going to miss you too." Sam said to her.
Dean stood up from the couch and walked over to Sam, he took Madilyn from him before asking her,"do you want to walk us to the car?"
She nodded her head as Dean begin to walk toward the front door and walk outside. Sam put his and Dean's bag into the trunk, then he gave Kaylee a kiss and held her close to him, he hated leaving his girlfriend behind.
Sam waved 'bye' to Madilyn before sitting down in the passenger seat. Dean walked over to Kaylee and handed her Madilyn, he gave Madilyn another kiss on top of her head.
"Bye baby girl, love you." Dean said to Madilyn, then added to Kaylee,"take care of my girls ok?"
"I will." Kaylee promised.
"If anything happens, we're only a phone call away." Dean said to Kaylee.
"I know, don't worry Dean, everything will be ok." Kaylee said to him.
"Alright, be back soon." Dean said, as he opened the driver side door and sat down.
"Bye." Kaylee called out.
"Love you." Madilyn added.
Sam and Dean gave the two girls a wave before driving down the long driveway and out of sight.
Kaylee looked at Madilyn's sad face then said,"don't worry baby, they'll be ok."
"I know, I'm not worried about them." Madilyn said.
"Then what are you worried about?" Kaylee asked.
"My brother." Madilyn answered sadly.
a/n- Hey all, here is the first chapter for the newest Chloe story. I know it's kinda dull and slow moving, but it will get better, i hope lol. If any of you reading, haven't read the first story, i would suggest reading 'Her Haunted Past' first or you might be confused about all the new characters. Anyway I hope you liked the first chapter, please review. I'll try to get another chapter posted soon.
Oh also i started a new story called 'Hard to Love You' it has new characters in it and has nothing to do with this saga, but it should be a good story. Thank you all for reading :)
