It was in the middle of the night, and Sam and Dean were in the Impala, driving to South Dakota, when someone ran out in front of the car. Dean swerved and ended up driving into a field of grass.

"Who the hell in their right mind would run out into a street like that?" Dean asked as both he and Sam got out of the Impala. They walked over to the person who ran out in front of the car and saw that it was a boy.

The boy was sitting on the ground, his knees brought up to his chest and his arms clutched his knees close to his chest as he rocked back and forth and sobbed at the same time. The boy looked to be around seven or eight. The street light provided enough light to see that he had light brown hair and light skin. He was wearing a dirty shirt and pajama pants. They probably got dirty from him running through the woods.

Dean kneeled down next to the boy causing the boy to glance at him for a second. The boy had light blue and bright green eyes. "Hey kid, didn't your mother ever teach you to look both ways before crossing the street?" he asked the boy.

"Dean." Sam chided his brother.

He ignored his brother and just continued looking at the boy. "Well, why were you running?"

The boy whimpered and looked at Dean. "I was being chased." he whispered.

"By what?" Sam asked.

The boy looked up at Sam and shook his head. "I don't know." he murmured softly.

Dean rolled his eyes and stood up. "Alright kid, we're taking you home. We're not fooled by this."

The boy's head shot up and his eyes were wide as he stared at Dean, his eyes watering with unshed tears. "N-no! Please don't! I don't know exactly what was chasing me, but I know it wasn't good!" he wiped his eyes before he continued to speak. "I was in my room sleeping and I was woken up by my mom and dad screaming. So, I ran into their room and I saw someone standing over my mom and dad and when it looked at me, the person's eyes turned black. That's when I ran out of my house and into the woods. Once I'm in the woods, I stop and look back at my house, and I see the person running out of the backdoor and heading toward my direction so I ran again and here I am."

Dean and Sam glanced at each other before looking down at the boy. "What's your name, kid?" Dean asked.

"Cooper Harrison."

"How old are you?" Sam asked.


Dean sighed as he scratched the back of his neck and looked down at Cooper's light blue and viridian eyes. "Alright kid, you're coming with us." he told him. Next thing he knew, Cooper was hugging him, his arms around Dean's waist.

"Thank you!" Cooper said then he backed away from him.

Dean grinned. "No problem."

All three of them made their way to the Impala and they all got in.

"If you want, you can sleep while we are heading to our destination." Dean said as he started up the Impala.

"Ok." Cooper murmured as he laid down on the seat, putting his head on his arm.


They made it to South Dakota and to Bobby's house in six hours. Cooper was still sleeping, so Sam carried him to the door with Dean following closely behind him and when Bobby answered the door, he didn't bother saying hi to the brothers.

"What in the hell is this?" Bobby asked, glancing at the brothers and the boy who was in Sam's arms.

"A demon was in his house while he and his parents were sleeping. He said he was woken up by them screaming, and when he went to go see why, the demon made itself known, and its eyes changed to black. He ran out of the house when he saw that and it chased him until we almost ran him over."

Bobby sighed and took off his hat and ran his hand through his hair and put the hat back on. "Alright. Come in and put him down on the couch." he said, walking away from the door so the brothers could get in the house.

Once they were in the house, Dean closed the door as Sam put Cooper on the couch gently. Cooper stirred slightly but didn't wake up. Sam sighed before going to the kitchen where Bobby and Dean were.

"So, what are we gonna do now?" Bobby asked.

"We're going to help him. But first, we have to figure out what the demon wanted with him. Since it chased after him, there has to be something unique about this kid." Dean said with a sigh. "So we'll have to figure that out first."

They stood in an awkward silence after that. They didn't know what else to say. But then a new presence made itself known.


Dean, Sam, and Bobby looked toward the entrance to the kitchen and saw Cooper standing there with a confused expression.

"Hey, kid." Dean said, grinning sheepishly.

"Hi..." he said confusedly. "I'm sorry for asking, but where are we?"

"Oh! Um, well for starters. I'm Dean. This is my brother Sam," Dean said, pointing to himself and then to Sam. "And this here is Bobby. He's like a second father to us." he said, pointing to Bobby. He looked back at Cooper. "Bobby, this is Cooper."

"Hiya, Cooper." Bobby said with a slight smile.

"Hi." Cooper said with a small wave. "So, where are we?"

"We are in South Dakota." Sam replied. "And we are hunters. We hunt the supernatural. The thing that was in your house was a demon. We have decided that we are going to help you, but we first have to figure out why the demon was in your house and why it was chasing after you."

"Oh." Cooper mumbled. He was speechless, he didn't know how to reply to that.

Dean walked up to Cooper and kneeled down and put a hand on his shoulder. "We'll figure this out. You're in good hands." Cooper nodded and smiled.

"So, Coop! I bet you're hungry. I believe I've got enough food for ya." Bobby said with a smile.


"What do you mean he got away?" Lucifer asked, clenching his fists dangerously.

"He was running away from me and I was chasing after him, but he ran into the Winchester brothers." the demon minion replied.

Lucifer growled. "So, you literally lost him?"

"I guess..."

Lucifer stormed up to the minion and slapped him. "Go find him." he ordered darkly.

"Yes, my lord." the minion said as he rubbed the cheek Lucifer slapped.

Before the minion left Lucifer said, "And don't come back without him or you will suffer dire consequences."

A/N: :o! Oh boy. Wonder what Lucifer wants with Cooper! :O Lol. I came up with this idea while sitting in English class on Friday. O.o I hope you liked the first chapter. And review if you want to. :)
