Notes: E/O Challenge – Prepare. Spoilers for season 7 finale are in this drabble, so if you haven't seen it, do not read.

You're on your own.

Nothing could have prepared Sam for those words, especially from Crowley's mouth. The house was quiet, as if nothing had just happened there. He needed help, but there was no one to call. Everyone he cared about or trusted was gone.

He shakily put his cell phone back into his coat pocket and slowly turned to leave. There was no reason to stay here any longer. He had no one to call, and no way to find his brother. He was completely alone. Maybe it was time to leave hunting behind, and finally start his life.
