"Happy Birthday bro'"

Dean handed something flat and heavy, clumsily wrapped in newspaper, to Sam. "It's nothin' much," he added, chewing his lip in a manner suggesting that, far from being nothing much, this was everything and a little bit more to Dean.

Sam took the parcel with a surprised smile.

He unwrapped it and his heart froze.

Suddenly, everything made sense. For weeks now, Dean had been squirrelling himself away, poring over his desk for hours on end, sometimes working through midnight and into the small hours, evasively covering his work up whenever Sam approached.

Now Sam knew why.
