You're a big ol' wuss if you don't jump in the water. ~ Brad Paisley

"Alright, Sammy..." John called and clapped his hands.

Four-year old Sam stood at the side of the motel pool; shifting from one small foot to the other – from both apprehension and the heat of the cracked concrete – and stared at his father in the pale blue water below.

"Come on..." John encouraged.

Sam glanced at Dean; his big brother standing beside John in the shallow end and nodding his own encouragement. "You can do it, Sammy!"

Sam swallowed; anxiously twisting the bright orange water wings around his thin arms.

"I'll catch you," Dean promised.

So, Sam closed his eyes...and jumped.
