E/O Challenge: Slip

A very Happy Birthday to Dizzo & CFEditor - hope you both had an awesome day!

As Always

It should've been me. And it would've been if Dean hadn't pushed me outta the way; gotten between me and that crazed werewolf; my life more important than his – as always.

By the time I'd fired a full barrel of silver bullets into the slathering creature my brother lay badly wounded on the cold, hard ground.

I knelt beside his blood-soaked body; lifted him into my trembling arms.

"What d'ya have to do that for?" I murmured, already headed for the Impala.

"S'my job ... S'mmy ... always ... gotta ... keep you safe," Dean answered, before slipping into oblivion.
