E/O Challenge: Water.
A/N: This challenge is written in loving memory of my stepmother, Melody-Ann. She passed away this past Tuesday, 3-13, just two days shy of her 63rd birthday. She was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer early last March. The doctors only gave her about seven months to live, and she proved them wrong. I knew the day would come when I would have to say goodbye, but I never thought in a million years it would come so quickly. For this challenge, I want to focus on Dean, and the loss of Bobby, as Dean considered Bobby a "stepfather" or second father.
They laid Bobby to rest next to his wife's memorial, in Sioux Falls. It was what he would have wanted. Sam went right to bed when they got back. Dean made his way to the bathroom to take a shower. Throwing his dirty clothes in the corner, he turned the hot water on and slipped into the shower, letting the water cascade down his tense shoulders. It would be a long while before he could completely heal. It had been just the other day that he and Bobby were having beers, laughing. Now, he was gone, and never coming back.
