SPN drabble: 'Glitching Up the Evil-dar'

Title: Glitching Up the Evil-dar
Characters: Dean, Sam
Rating: G
Author's Notes: Written for supernatural100 challenge #265: No harm, no foul.
Length: 100 words, and I sweated blood to get this one down to drabble-length.
Disclaimer: The boys belong to the CW.
Summary: "This guy's gotta be evil, right?"

A man rushed out of the McMansion carrying a limp black cat under one arm and a head-sized object wrapped in rust-stained newspaper under the other. Dean rested a hand on his Colt and angled the silent EMF detector as the guy roared by in a fancy black SUV.

Hours later they’d tossed the house, all twenty rooms. Nothing.

“No bodies, no hex bags, no sulfur, and I even checked the medicine cabinet in case he’s -” Dean swirled a finger near his temple.

Sam shrugged. “I don’t know, man. Maybe he’s just … normal?”

Dean made a face. “Freakin’ suburbs.”

oooh, I liked this a lot, keerawa. Love the feeling of disdain we get right from the first (McMansion - great word). It's all just pitch perfect.

You really captured a lot with just 100 words!

I replaced SEVEN words with McMansion. It's a great one, isn't it? Thanks, mizface!

I really liked this, how much you packed into such a short piece of work - bet that was a challenge to press down!
I enjoyed.
thanking you.

Suburbia is a hotbed of unnatural, but not necessarily evil, things. Love the McMansion(I know the joy when the right word finally comes) and the swirling finger.

I want to know what he was doing with the limp black cat and the newspaper wrapped object though. The imagination boggles!

SO SO TRUE! I was actually inspired by a very peculiar jogger I saw the other morning carrying a mysterious newspaper-wrapped object. And I thought, 'Oh! The Winchesters would think he's EVIL!'
