Author's note: I do not own anything having to do with Supernatural, only Leah belongs to me. This story is going to be different from my other sister fic. I'm not really going to do a prologue but I'm going to try and work all details into the story itself. I'm going to skip around a bit before we get to the pilot in the next chapter but I will put ages before each segment, hope you enjoy! Remember to read and review!
"Dean, I know you think the cheerleaders are hot but did you really have to sneak into the school? I mean come on they are like jailbait!" Sam asked as we made our way into the small apartment we were renting at the time.
"What are you talking about?" Dean asked as he flipped through the channels.
"Dude it was all over school that Winchester was making out in the janitors closet!" Sam exclaimed.
I quietly made my way to my room trying to hide the smile on my face.
"I'm not the only Winchester…" Dean said before getting interrupted by Sam.
Crap, I thought to myself before turning around and smiling, "What?"
"We have been here a month and already you are making out with random guys?!" Sam yelled.
"He wasn't some random guy," I argued.
"What was his name?" Dean asked smiling at me.
"Mark?" I answered not really sure if it was right or not.
Dean laughed but Sam didn't think it was so funny.
"Dean are you really encouraging our little sister to hook up with random guys? I mean what if she catches something or gets pregnant?"
"Oh please Sammy I'm not some whore," I said showing him what I had in my purse, "I'm on the pill and always have extra condoms on me."
"Dean!" Sam yelled again.
"What Sam…No I don't like it but she knows how to take care of herself and you've seen her temper, you know I'm right," Dean answered and then noticed I was walking towards the front door, "Where do you think you going?"
"I have a date," I said as I stopped in front of the mirror by the door to fix my hair. I was lucky enough to have long dark brown hair that naturally had waves in it.
"I don't think so, dad is supposed to be back by tonight and how are you going to explain to him why you weren't here?" Dean asked.
"I'm not you are going to cover for me."
"Like hell, I'm not covering for you."
"Hey I covered for you when you snuck out to be with the O'Malley twins and I cleaned the weapons like you were supposed to!" I reminded him.
"Am I the only one who knows it's wrong to sleep around?" Sam yelled as he went in his room and slammed the door.
"You should have given him one of the twins maybe he wouldn't be so moody all the time," I joked.
"Just go…and bring me back pie," he sighed and went back to flipping through the channels.
I went out with Josh, or maybe it was Jason. I was never good with names. Whoever it was we ended up going to the drive-in. I have no idea what was playing but we grabbed food at the diner afterwards, making sure I grabbed pie for Dean, before he drove me back to our apartment. I snuck in the front door and was surprised to see all the lights on.
"He isn't back yet," Sam said not taking his nose out of his book.
"Oh good gives me time to shower and change quick," I said making my way to the bathroom after putting the pie on the counter.
I quickly finished my shower putting on sweatpants and one of Dean's old Black Sabbath t-shirts before heading to the living room to watch TV.
"Hey that's mine!" Dean said as I sat down next to him.
"Yeah and… I did laundry and needed a new sleep shirt," I said grabbing his fork and taking a bite of pie.
"That's mine too!"
"It was going to be yours if you covered for me but dad isn't home yet so now it's our pie. What are you going to say I stole your green eyes next?" I laughed as we heard the door being unlocked.
"Shouldn't you be in bed, you guys have school in the morning you know. I'm not staying in one place for more than a month at a time so you can fool around," my dad said as soon as he walked in.
"Daddy it's Friday night," I said softly.
Not even a hello when he walked in the door, great he is drunk again, I thought to myself.
"Leah maybe you and Sam should go to bed," Dean said not taking his eyes off my father.
We both got up and went into Sam's room he shared with Dean leaving the door cracked so we could hear what was going on.
"I hate when he does this," Sam said as he fell back on his bed.
"Me too," I whispered and then sat by the door.
"Dad maybe you should go sleep it off," Dean suggested.
"Don't tell me what to do; I am still the parent around here!" Dad nearly growled at him.
"Yes sir," Dean replied.
My dad stumbled into his room anyway and I waited to hear him snoring before I gave Sam the all clear to go back out in the living room with Dean.
"Why does he have to do it every year?" I asked sitting down next to him on the couch.
"I don't know angel," he sighed and put his arm around me.
"It's not like we don't miss her too," Sam added.
"Sam please don't," I said.
"Why not Leah? Why won't you ever talk about mom?"
"I'm going to bed," I said getting off the couch and heading to my room.
I climbed into bed, curled myself into a ball and let the tears silently fall as I did every year.
"Happy birthday Mom," I whispered before allowing myself to fall asleep.
6 months later
"Aren't you excited about graduating?" I asked jumping on Sam's back while he was walking down the hallway of the last high school we would ever attend.
"I'm actually shocked you took advanced classes to be able to graduate a year early," he replied as he held onto my legs so I wouldn't fall.
"Are you kidding me, without school to worry about I can focus on hunting full time," I answered.
"What about college?" he asked and I slid off his back.
"What about it?"
"Leah you are so smart, imagine all the doors it could open for you," he tried as we made our way out to the parking lot where Dean was waiting to pick us up.
"Sammy stop, I'm a hunter and I love it. There is no way I would ever go to college just so I can sit in some cubicle all day."
"You can at least think about it," he tried to rationalize.
"Are you two arguing again, I swear to God it's worse than when we were kids," Dean groaned as we got to the car.
"I'm not arguing about anything," I said as I got in the backseat.
"It was just looking out for your future," Sam said turning to look at me from the front.
"I already told you no, now drop it!" I shouted.
"Did you even think about it?!" Sam shouted back.
"Stop yelling in my car!" Dean hollered then turned the music so loud you couldn't hear yourself think.
When we got home the tension between Sam and me was gone. We always had something to fight about but we never stayed mad at each other for very long.
"Leah Marie Winchester you better get your ass in here now!" my dad yelled from the kitchen.
"Well that doesn't sound good," I mumbled. Dean must have heard me because he shook his head.
I walked into the kitchen and he threw a letter at me, "Do you want to explain yourself young lady?"
"What is this?... An acceptance letter…but dad I never even applied!"
"Don't lie to me Leah," dad growled.
"I swear on everything holy I didn't!"
"Well colleges don't randomly send out letters!"
"SAM!" I screamed.
A minute later he came into the kitchen with Dean right behind him, "What?"
"Did you do this?!" I shoved the letter into his hands.
"You got in! That's awesome we can go together!" he smiled.
"Together?" Dad asked.
"I got my acceptance letter from Stanford a few days ago, I was just waiting for Leah to get hers," Sam explained.
"I'm not going anywhere! Damn it Sam we have been through this! You have a responsibility to this family!"
"Your sister is right neither of you are going anywhere." Dad said in a tone that we knew it was the end.
"Well if she chooses to stay then that's her choice, I'm going."
I locked eyes with Dean who was on leaning against the counter. I couldn't believe what I was hearing.
"You are going to turn your back on your family?" Dad hollered.
"This isn't the life I want!... I'm already packed, I'm leaving tonight."
"You walk out that door, don't you ever come back!" Dad screamed.
Sam went to his room, threw his bag over his shoulder and walked out the door. I couldn't understand what was happening.
"Sam!" I ran after him.
"You change your mind?" he asked turning around in the parking lot.
"What? No but you can't just leave!"
"This is something I have to do…I'll miss you…take care of Dean," he said before turning and walking away.
"I hate you!" I screamed.
I ran back into the house not stopping to talk to anyone until I got to my room and slammed the door.
"Leah?" Dean knocked.
"Go away," I answered as I pulled on my sweatshirt but he came in anyway.
"Dad said he had an errand to run so I was going to order pizza…where are you going?"
"Out, I'll be back before dad gets back," I answered as I pushed by him.
"Where are you going?!" he asked again with more volume.
"For a run," I said as I slammed the front door.
I always had a temper which usually got me in trouble at school as well as at home. My dad suggested I go running whenever I got worked up so I wouldn't hurt myself. A couple times I punched the wall so many times I ended up with a few broken knuckles and a hole in the wall.
About an hour later I returned to find I beat my dad home.
"Feeling better?" Dean asked as I downed a bottle of water from the fridge.
"Not really," I admitted before going to take a long hot shower.
That was the best thing about when we rented apartments instead of staying in a motel somewhere, the hot water lasted so much longer. I got out of the shower to see my dad back in the apartment packing things up.
"We leave in the morning so be ready."
Sam-20 (although he isn't in this part since he is at college)
"You going out?" Dean asked as I put my sneakers on.
"Yeah I have a date with Kevin," I replied.
"Wait, you mean you are going out with someone more than once?" he asked with a shocked expression on his face.
"It's been three weeks to be exact…and he is really sweet," I answered smiling.
"Le, we're leaving tomorrow to go meet up with dad. So make tonight count," he winked at me.
"You're such a perv," I said as I left the motel room we were sharing.
Kevin was waiting for me in the parking lot and we walked to a nearby park.
"Where's that smile I love so much," he asked as we walked hand in hand down a path by the lake.
"I've had a lot of fun the last couple of weeks but my brother and I are leaving tomorrow," I answered as we sat down on one of the benches.
"How long are you going to be gone for?"
"I don't know if we will be coming back."
"It's just our job, it's like a family business and it's my whole life."
"We have never really talked about what your family does for a living…"
"Because it's not important," I answered.
I remembered when we were in Ohio not too long ago and Dean had fallen for a girl named Cassie. He told her what we did and it ruined their relationship. I knew we were leaving tomorrow either way but I didn't want to chance ruining what Kevin and I had.
"What are you bank robbers…mafia…gypsies?" he laughed.
"Trust me you don't want to know."
"Leah come on it can't be that bad," he pressed.
I thought about it took a deep breath and looked him in the eyes, "Do you remember the kids that went missing?"
"Yeah…but what does that have to do with your family…"
"My brother and I are the ones that killed the thing that took them," I answered.
"My family and I hunt the things that go bump in the night…" I started until he cut me off.
"Stop those kids went through enough you don't need to be making a joke about it," he said getting angry.
"I'm not, I know what they went through we are the ones that saved them! I know it's hard to believe but there are things out there your worst nightmares couldn't compare to," I tried.
"You're fucking insane you know that," he yelled as he got up and went to walk away.
"Don't ever call me again you freak!" he called over his shoulder.
I ran all the way back to the motel not caring that my mascara was running down my face from my tears. I was a great hunter and proud to be a Winchester but one thing I could never do was hide my tears when I was upset. I got back to the room and Dean was sitting on his bed cleaning the weapons.
"You're back early," he said not looking up from the .45 in his hands. He must have heard me sniffle and he looked up, "What the hell happened?"
I just shook my head and started crying all over again sitting down on my bed. He came over and put his arm around me running his hand up and down my arm in a comforting way.
"Everything will be ok angel," he reassured as he rested his head on top of mine.
