Its just destiny
I'm pretty sure we've established by now that I don't own any of the characters mentioned in the below work of fiction, I merely take them, use them and twist them to suit my own entertainment purposes.
Right here's the next chapter for you all to read!
I've actually really enjoyed writing it so hopefully you'll enjoy reading it
Dean Winchester was completely normal or at least he thought he was. Apparently he's actually a big deal in the supernatural world; a world he didn't even know existed until today. Dean's goal is simple, ignore his new position, ignore his gorgeous new bodyguard Castiel who won't go away and just act like nothing has happened… I mean what's the worst that could happen right?
Run little Rabbit run…
Castiel / Dean Winchester
I don't think romance is quite what is on Dean's mind during this chapter…
Dean breathed out shakily, glancing around him with narrowed eyes as his brain swiftly kicked into action.
There was no way in hell that he could win this fight, not with the odds currently stacked against him as they were. He had his gun on him, tucked away safety in the waistband of his jeans covered by his shirt but by the time he had his hand on it, pulling it out and cocking it at them they would already be on him, swiftly disarming him and probably kicking the shit out of him for his troubles.
It was pretty clear to him that whoever these guys were they had been following him, probably for at least a month if they knew his route home and the fact that he always took this alleyway when he was running late. Had they been staking the alley every evening waiting for him to use it?
Questions moved around his head, making it hard for him to concentrate on what was happening around him. Why were they waiting for him? Who were they? How did they know his name? It wasn't as though Dean was anything special in the grand scale of everything. He was simply a guy who worked in a garage, raised his brother and looked after his sick father on a daily basis. He didn't owe anyone money, he didn't gamble. Hell he went home every day straight from work to cook for his family before working on the house. What interest could four men, all dressed in expensive looking suits have in him? It didn't make any sense to him.
For a moment he wondered whether this was simply a terrible case of mistaken identity and they had confused him with someone else but he swiftly pushed the thought out of his mind as being extremely unlikely. They had known him by name and that was the sign of them knowing exactly who they were looking for.
Whoever they were, they were there for him which meant that Dean was in deep shit, shit that he was pretty sure he couldn't talk of fight him self out of this time.
He could throw the bag of food at two of them and make a run back down the alley towards the main street but he had the distinct impression that not only were all of them strong enough to break him over their knees if they chose to but that they were faster then he was, he could see from their eyes that they wanted him to run.
Dean nervously licked his lips, his eyes flickering between their impassive faces.
If he stood his ground and fought he was screwed. If he ran he was screwed. There didn't seem to be a way that Dean was getting out of this situation unscathed.
"We have no desire to hurt you at present time Dean" one of them said, breaking the silence which had fallen between them. Dean shot him a quick glance before he continued to move his gaze across all of them. The last thing he wanted was to get distracted giving them the chance to grab him. "We just want to take you somewhere to talk."
"Why don't I believe that" he replied, adrenaline pumping through his body making him feel on edge. "If you've got something to say to me then say it now because there's no way in hell I'm going anywhere with the four of you. I'm not stupid."
Dean's eyes flickered to the side of him quickly, focusing on a fire escape ladder which stopped just out of reach on the wall. There was a chance, however slight the chance might be, that Dean could reach it in time before the men realised what he was doing and use it to make his escape. He had always been a fast, natural climber. He edged slightly towards it, ignoring the way the four men began closing in on him. The sight reminded him of a nature show which Sam had made him watch one evening. It had showed a animal being hunted down by a predator in exactly the same way, almost toying with the prey before it attacked, making the kill.
"You know we have been looking for you for a very long time Dean Winchester. You have led us in quite the chase around the world. It has been… challenging trying to locate you."
Dean frowned, his eyes widening when he saw the speaker's grey eyes suddenly turn completely black, there was nothing left but darkness, even the whites of the eyes were gone.
"What the fuck is wrong with your eyes" Dean exclaimed, the words bursting from his mouth before he could stop them as he took another step to the side towards the ladder. "Why the hell would you be looking for me? Who are you exactly? The CIA or some other strange government organisation because I pay all my taxes, I've no criminal record, I'm not on the run, I-"
"Are you sure about that?" One of the men interrupted him, cocking his head to one side as he stared at Dean with a considering look on his face which made Dean's skin crawl. He swallowed taking another step away from them, even being looked at by them made him feel dirty and queasy as though the touch of their eyes on his skin and face was tainting him in some way.
"Am I sure about what exactly?" Dean countered, taking another step to the side. He was almost directly beneath the ladder now, it was high up, beyond the reach of most people but Dean knew without a shadow of a doubt that he could reach it. He had always been a good jumper, able to jump higher then any other kid in his old school; he had even held the long jump record, a record which he still held onto to this day, no other kid coming close to it. He would be able to make the jump; it was what happened to him after he made the jump which was his biggest concern at that moment in time.
"Are you sure that you aren't running from something Dean" the man replied softly, he was clearly the one in charge since the other three looked towards him clearly waiting for some instructions. Dean swallowed when the man continued to speak. "You've been running for a very long time Dean and yet I can tell from your face that you have no idea about what we're talking about. You are genuinely confused. They must have wiped out your memories or somehow managed to block them, making you believe that the life you have is the one you are meant to have but it isn't. You are made for greater things Dean Winchester. Doesn't that thought leave you angry?"
"I've no idea what the hell you're talking about" Dean stated flatly "But it sounds to me like you might be a little crazy in the head, perhaps you should consider getting some professional help or something."
"Well Dean" another one the men said as they stepped into a horizontal line in front of him creating a barrier of human flesh, with them in front of him and the brick wall behind him they clearly thought he had no way of escaping them. "When we take you to see our master he will soon make you realise what had been done to you and then you can get your revenge."
"Yeah that's not gonna happen dude and seriously for the record you need to work on your sales pitch because you just sound creepy" Dean said. The man in question smirked at him, his black eyes flashing at Dean making him shudder beneath the gaze.
"Well you see Dean you-"Dean didn't wait to hear what the man was going to say, he flung the food bag at them, hitting the man speaking directly in the chest forcing him back a few steps with the impact. He used the moment of confusion and surprise the act had caused to make his move, turning to the wall and bending his knees before he jumped, his hand reaching up above him.
Dean didn't hesitate, the moment his hand curled around that lower metal rung of the fire escape ladder he was scrambling up it, racing up the fire escape. He was aware of angry shouts from beneath him and the sound of metal hitting flesh meaning they were in pursuit of him but he didn't pay attention, running and climbing instead for all he was worth.
He had to get away from them and quickly, he didn't know who the hell they were but he knew enough about them to know that he didn't want to go anywhere with them. Dean pulled him self over the edge of the building on to the roof top, gasping when he felt a hand grab his ankle tightly bringing him down to his knees. He didn't think, he just reacted, kicking back hard with his free foot and connecting directly with the man's face. He felt the exact second the man's nose crumpled under the impact, forcing the man to release him with a cry of pain and anger mingled into one.
Dean scrambled away, sprinting across the roof top and jumped, for a moment he was weightless before he landed on the building opposite, landing hard and gasping at the pain which shot up his arm.
He forced him self to get to his feet, his eyes going directly to the roof he had just been on.
Two of the men were on it, standing at the edge, pacing and snarling in fury, their enraged black eyes fixed on Dean intently. Dean glanced down at the gap between the buildings, his eyes widening as his mouth fell open in shock when he saw was wide the gap actually was. How the hell had he made that jump?
Pushing the thought from his mind as one to think about later, he turned away from them and ran across the roof to the other side of it, cursing out loud when he realised the roof door was locked, he rattled the handle for a moment, slamming his shoulder hard against it but it was hopeless. The door wasn't going to budge any time soon.
Dean ran his hand over his mouth and turned, his eyes already seeking out the fire escape. If he could get down it without being caught then he could reach Main Street. The minute he hit those rush hour crowds then he would be safe, able to mingle in them and get lost from view. He would escape them, hopefully long enough to get home and grab Sam and his Dad. He doubted the place was safe anymore, if they knew his routine well enough that they knew the alley way he occasionally used then they would definitely know exactly where he lived as well.
God what if he was too late and someone was already there with them? Sam and his Dad wouldn't stand a chance against these people. What if they were hurting them or torturing them. Dean had to get to them.
He brought his eyes up, his mouth fell open when he realised with a sinking feeling of horror that the other two men were now standing on the same roof top as him, something which should have been impossible.
"There's no fucking way" Dean stated, breathing hard through his mouth, barely believing his own eyes at what he was seeing. "You couldn't have made that jump, it's impossible" he said.
"And yet you made the jump" one of the men said coolly "Enough of these games Dean, you will come with us now or we will kill everyone who means something to you one by one starting with your father" Dean's eyes widened at the coldly spoken threat.
"You're bluffing" he said slowly.
"Are we?" the man answered, tilting his head to the side and raising a dark eyebrow. "Are you sure enough that you are willing to take that risk? What if you're wrong? What then?" Dean took a step away from them, his back colliding with the cool metal of the locked door behind him.
They were right, he couldn't risk the chance that they did have his dad, he would have to go with them and pray that they'd kill him quickly once they were finished with him.
He swallowed and forced him self to take a step towards them.
"If you harm them in any sort of way then I'll kill you. I don't know how I will do it but I promise you I will. I'll hunt the four of you down and make you wish you had never been born into this world" he threatened them, surprise coursing through him when he saw a glimmer of fear enter both their eyes at his words.
"Enough talk, our master doesn't like to be kept waiting, not even by you" the other man said causing Dean to snort.
"Yeah well your master can kiss my ass" he said, forcing him self to take another step towards them.
Dean blinked, glancing around him in confusion when he heard another unfamiliar male voice speak to him, a voice which had sounded as though it was coming from directly inside his head.
"Hurry up Dean, our patience grows thin" the man said, a trace of anger to his voice as he took a step towards him, his hand already outstretched to grab on to Dean's arm.
*Go to the ground Dean, cover your head and keep your eyes close. Do it now*
Dean didn't hesitate, throwing him self on the ground, his eyes closing as he threw his arms over his head just as a massive bang broke through the air as though a loud gun shot had been fired directly by his ear, the ground beneath him rumbled as a flash of intense white light surrounded him causing him to cry out in pain before the darkness took him.
