Is it a figment of my imagination, or could I be losing my mind? ~ Rihanna

Sam startled awake with a gasp at the sound of someone calling his name.

Instinctively, he turned toward his brother.

But Dean was sleeping; facing Sam but sprawled on his stomach and softly snoring.

Sam sighed – his heart still pounding in his chest with a vague sense of dread and fear and anxiety – and glanced at the clock on the bedside table; the red numbers of 2:18 glowing in the dark.

Sam sighed again – it was going to be a long night – and shifted on the mattress; turning over to find a better position and coming face-to-face with what – or rather, with who – had woke him.

Lucifer smiled, his head nestled on the pillow next to Sam. "Hi, Sammy."
