Summary: “Let’s split up,” Dean said.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

Sam signed the rental agreement with an angry flourish that ripped the paper. The Ford Taurus was a dull blue-grey the exact shade of a drowned corpse. Sam shoved the seat as far back and down as it would go. His hair still brushed the roof when he got in.

“Let’s split up,” Dean’d said. “We’ll cover more ground that way.” As if that were normal. As if Dad had raised them to cover ground, instead of each other’s backs. ‘It’ll be good practice for when I’m gone,’ Dean didn’t have to add.

Screw that. Sam wouldn’t let it happen.

Sammy's not a happy camper. Thanks for the feedback, nitro26!

As if Dad had raised them to cover ground, instead of each other’s backs. What an excellent line! I do love drabbles that can pack a punch so vividly. Thank you for this.

Thank you for reading and commenting, callistosh65! Drabbles are a great challenge - you have to make every word count.

I'm amazed that you packed so much into a drabble. The ouch and the determination Sam feels at the end. Thanks also for writing stuff that took place a while ago and for labeling it clearly as such - I'm still catching up with the show on DVD, so I'm afraid to read much fic for fear of spoilers! Very nice.

Thanks tinzelda! It feels terribly awkward to me, writing in an open canon, so I tend to work in the earlier seasons. Almost everything I've written is set during season 1 or 2.

Wow. This is just perfect. Short and to the point and I'm a fan of that same line, As if that were normal. As if Dad had raised them to cover ground, instead of each other’s backs. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, alphabet26. That's the heart of the story, so I'm glad it hit you.
