Title: From The Clan
Summary: John has a sister..
Disclaimer: All characters are mine except for Dean, Sam, John, Mary and Pastor Jim.
I am a huge fan of the show and I decided to write this family fic, its my first so please be kind and review and let me know if you think that I should continue..
Hi my name is Samantha Winchester; I am 40 years old and an FBI agent based in Washington DC. I recently lost my father, my last parent so have been using my connections to try and find the rest of my family, my brother, John and my nephews, Dean and Sam. I need to find my family for two reasons. I want him to be godfather to my twins (due in May) and to pass on an inheritance to my nephews. Yes, we are those Winchesters; my father cut John off when he married a young woman named Mary Murphy in 1974, but he did leave an inheritance to all his grandchildren.
Although, my father disinherited my brother, we kept in touch and I was at the birth of both my nephews, Dean in 1979 and Sam in 1983. In November 1983, the family were attacked by a Demon. Yes, I know about Demons, and the other things that go bump in the night. I tried to warn John that something was coming but he didn’t believe that I could see what was coming. Since an early age, I have had visions of things that were going to happen. Shortly after the attack, John took the boys and disappeared and I have not heard from him or them since.
The FBI is reporting that my brother died nearly two years ago, and that my nephews died in a major explosion two months ago. My other contacts are reporting that although John is dead, the boys are very much alive. I have therefore taken time off from work before my maternity leave starts to track down John, Dean and Sam. I won’t be doing this alone however; my husband, William Talbot a hunter is coming with me. We decided to head west and will start with the best hunter that Bill knows, Bobby Singer. Bill has known Bobby for a while, but the hunting world is so secretive that William hasn’t asked him about the Winchesters yet. I am taking along my proof of identity and my documentary evidence on my links to John, Dean and Sam just in case.
Whilst trying to track down John and the boys, I have been researching both sides of the family and found out something interesting. Running down the Winchester side of the family, in every generation there is a Sam, I think that this is more than a generational thing of passing on the name. I also discovered that the youngest child in our family inherits a gift, I don’t know if this has passed to John’s Sam. I do know that I received a gift as did my Uncle Sam, my grandfather Sam and going on back through the family. The gift in my case as I have stated before is visions, my uncle was telekinetic (could move things with his mind), and my grandfather was both. My gut feeling is that Sam has inherited his great grandfather’s gifts; he may not know how to use them as wasn’t around the family to learn how.
On Mary’s side of the family, all of her relations died within three years of her death it was as if someone was trying to hide or cover something up. On further investigation, I discovered that my Sister-in-Law was related to a long line of hunters. I don’t know if Mary was aware of this, and that this is the reason for the attack on her life and the lives of all her relations and close friends. The first in the line of hunters was given a revolver by Samuel Colt. The revolver was built to kill anything Supernatural, and was intended to be passed down the family line to the oldest child who was to become a hunter.
Two years after the revolver was given to Dominic Murphy, he went into hiding and the current whereabouts are a mystery. Hunter history shows that Dominic Murphy was one of the greats, and the reason for his disappearance is not clear. There has been speculation as to what happened to Dominic when he disappeared but what is most likely is that as he started a family he felt that he should settle down, do the occasional hunt and raise his family and pass the mantle onto the next generation. One of the theories is that Dominic met and fell in love with his guardian angel, and that this has been passed on down the line of the Murphy’s.
Dominic had a son, and two daughters, his son become a hunter (Frank Murphy), Frank had a son (Glenn) and a daughter and the son became a hunter. In each generation, to keep them safe the daughters knew nothing about what their brothers where doing just that they left home at the age of eighteen and they saw them again at family gatherings (sometimes a little worse for wear) but very rarely apart from that. Glenn married and had a son (James) and a daughter (Mary). James went on to become a hunter and a pastor.
As far as I can tell, John never knew that his Pastor Jim was Mary’s brother James. John and Mary had a very small wedding and family was not invited (I didn’t speak to him for a six months for that.) We did however talk again, he was angry that Dad had cut him off and thought that I was siding with Dad, he didn’t ask me just assumed, by brother can be incredibly stubborn. We got past that and had a really great relationship and I adored Mary and loved my nephews.
Bringing together the Winchester / Murphy family bloodlines, the hunters in the family, the angelic bloodline and the special gifts has lead to the attacks on the family. I am convinced more now than ever that these will continue until we can find the Colt and bring down the Lucifer’s agent on Earth. At this point, William tells me that Lilith has risen again and if she has we are in real trouble as not only will she go after John, Sam and Dean but she will come after me, Will and my twins.

Chapter Two - Recollections
After arranging to take leave from our respective jobs, mine at the FBI and Will from the Naval Criminal Investigation Service, and locking up the house we set off for South Dakota to meet with Bobby Singer. We packed up the Ford Escape (Hybrid), I know not the kind of car you expect a hunter to drive, but with two additions coming into the family we had to think space and accessibility and a SUV made more sense. We still have the ’67 Impala I inherited from my father. He gave it to me when I passed my driving test. Years before he had given one to John when he passed his test, and I absolutely fell in love with the car so my dad got me one as well. It’s in storage while we go across country, but Will uses it when we are in town. I intend to pass it down to the kids.
As we drive cross country, my thoughts drifted to John, and how I missed my big brother. There was a large age gap between John and myself, John is 13 years older than me, and my parents had given up hope of having any more children. My mother suffered several miscarriages between the time my brother was born and when I was born in 1967. Unlike my parents who were incredibly overprotective (understandably so, some people have said) John allowed me to be myself to go outside and play. He would take me to the park and allow me to climb trees, and fall over and graze my knees; I was a real tomboy when I was young.
In 1970, John joined the marines and left for Vietnam, this was the first time I remember him and my dad fighting, Dad shouted things about him running out on his family and his responsibilities and how could he do that if he loved us. I ran out of the room crying and went and hid in my bedroom closet, John found me later, and took me out for ice-cream and explained that he still loved me but that he needed to leave so that he could protect us. He came back in 1973, and there was another screaming match between him and my father, John didn’t want to join the family business and dad was insisting that if he came home he needed to join the ‘firm’. John told him that he wasn’t going to join the family business as he had seen the damage that our family business could do, and until my father was willing to counteract some of the damage then he didn’t want to know. Dad told him that if he left, then he was to stay gone. It broke my heart and again I ran and hid in the closet, again John found me and took me out in the impala, told me he would always love me and that whatever dad said about him I should never forget that, and I never did.
We kept in touch, he would phone when Dad was at work and he knew I would be around. In 1974, John told me was getting married he had met a great woman Mary and that he would be settling down in Lawrence Kansas, and he wanted me to attend the wedding. Mum knew what was really going on, so she told my Dad that I was going to camp for the summer; she was sad that she couldn’t go as well but knew that she couldn’t up and leave without telling him the real reason and if she did he wouldn’t let her go. John picked me up at Topeka airport in the Impala and we drove together back to his apartment in Lawrence. I met Mary and instantly fell in love with her, I hadn’t been sure that I would when he told me about her; I didn’t think anyone was going to be good enough for my big brother. John, Mary, Mum and I decided that I would spend my summers for the next few years, ‘at camp’ in Lawrence Kansas which would allow me to spend time with my big brother and his wife.
In 1978, a got a call to tell me I was going to be an Aunt, I didn’t feel old enough to be an Aunt, I was 11 years old for goodness sake. In early 1979, Mum and I visited John and Mary, whilst Dad was away on an overseas business trip. During the visit Mary went into labour and my nephew Dean arrived kicking and screaming, and I immediately fell in love with the new addition to the Winchester clan. After, Mum and I went home; John and I continued to keep in touch. Over the next 3 summers, I would visit with the Lawrence Winchesters and I could tell how happy John was, he had started a local business, he co-owned a garage, he was in love with Mary and they had Dean.
During my yearly visit in 1982, he told me I was going to me an Aunt again and I could tell that the whole family was really happy about this. Sam’s entrance into the world was an altogether different experience than Deans. Whereas Dean came in very loudly and let everybody know he was there, Sam came in very quietly and the whole room were concerned for a while that he was alive. Sam, took in a deep breath and opened those wonderful brown eyes, yawned and fell asleep in Mary’s arms. Three months later I started seeing Mary on the ceiling, blood dripping from her stomach and fire surrounding her, I phoned John and told him what I had seen and he told me to stop being silly, that it was just a nightmare. Three months after that Mary was dead, and John had dropped out of sight.
As we pulled up to Bobby’s Salvage yard, I still recall our last conversation as if it was yesterday and tears start to fill my eyes. John had phoned me a couple of days after the fire wanting to know how I knew what was going to happen, he wanted to know what had I done to Mary and why would I do that to him and to her. I was 16 years old at the time, and I couldn’t understand why the brother I adored and spent so much time with could think that I had something to do with Mary’s death. That was the last time I heard from him or the boys. Over the years I had other dreams but never again about a member of my family, and will never know why I received that particular vision, and why I couldn’t help save Mary when I have been able to save so many others. As the car stops, Will looks at me he sees the tears in my eyes leans over, kisses me and tells me that everything will be alright.

Sorry it's been a while, back at work.
As the car stops, Will looks at me he sees the tears in my eyes leans over, kisses me and tells me that everything will be alright.
Chapter Three – Will and I
I love the way that Will supports and cares for me, and as he is reassuring me that everything will be alright my mind goes back to how Will and I met. We were introduced by a mutual friend. I work for the FBI in the Behavioral Analysis Unit at Quantico, and a case several years ago, took me to Baltimore where I met a young officer in the homicide division, Tony (Anthony) DiNozzo, we kept in touch over the years and when he transferred to NCIS based in Washington I helped him settle in. We both came from wealthy slightly dysfunctional families, so had a lot in common. This meant that we were more like a brother / sister, and therefore we would celebrate birthdays; act as ‘the stand by date’ in case of emergency and also as the other ride when needed.
As has become our tradition, Tony and I went out to celebrate his birthday and on this particular occasion we brought along colleagues from our respective offices, this was the first time I met Will. Will was my age, he was 6ft 4” tall with dark blonde hair and intense blue eyes and was he appeared to be the heart and soul of the party. I thought that he was the complete opposite of me and therefore I thought that he wouldn’t look in my direction so I sank into the background at the bar, nursed my glass of Pinot Grigio wished Tony a happy Birthday and left. A couple of days later, Tony called me asking me if we could get together, he needed to talk to me about something. As I walked into the bar where we were meeting I noticed that Tony wasn’t there but Will was. I walked up to the booth he was sitting in and asked “where’s Tony? “, Will responded “he’s not coming, it’s just me”. I couldn’t understand what was going on. “I didn’t know that NCIS needed the BAUs help” I asked, Will replied “We don’t, I wanted to talk to alone”.
I sat down ordered a drink, and we started to talk, he told me that he had seen me walk into the bar and had been totally blown away, he thought that I was beautiful, the last person to tell me that was John and I almost fell apart there and then, that I was confident and that as I worked at the BAU I must be smart. He therefore couldn’t understand how I drifted into the background at the bar and didn’t actively take part in the party. I told him that I had seen him when I walked him that I thought he was incredibly handsome and that he was a live wire and that he wouldn’t want to talk to me, the shy geeky BAU agent. I couldn’t believe how quickly time passed during that first meeting; we talked for hours getting through a bottle of wine and two very large Chicken Caesar Salads.
We then started talking on the phone regularly, taking things slowly to start with as Will had been badly hurt by his last relationship. We had been dating for approximately three months when I told Will about the Winchester family history, my abilities and the abilities of the members of the family. I expected him to run for the hills, but he then told me that he knew all about the ‘Supernatural’, that he had been raised by a hunter, when he heard about something in the DC he would go investigate and kill the evil sons of bitches that were causing the problem and that he wasn’t going anywhere.
For our six month anniversary, Will invited the gang to the bar where we all met, ordered Champagne all round, as we were drinking I noticed that there was something in the bottom of my glass. It was a diamond and amethyst platinum ring, I looked at Will and mouthed “Are you sure”, he mouthed “Yes”, I mouthed “Yes, I will”, I took the ring from the glass and slide it onto my ring finger. Tony turned around at that point; slapped Will on the back gave me a hug and told the rest of the bar that “Congratulations were in order”. The wedding was going to be the following year, and this was the first time I tried to track down John, Dean and Sam as I wanted my big brother at my wedding, but we had no luck.
We set the wedding for the 18th August; the venue was this stunning place on the edge of Chesapeake Bay. The day started out with a great sunrise, I watched as the sun came up with butterflies in my stomach this was something that I never thought that I would have. The day for me was bittersweet, I was marrying the man of my dreams but my brother and his family were not there to celebrate with me. I remember seeing Will as I walked into the hall for the ceremony and thinking ‘how did I get so lucky’, Will confessed during our first dance that as I was walking down the aisle he leaned over to Tony, who was his best man and said “how did I get so lucky”, Tony replied “I don’t know, but you had better treat her right or all hell will break lose”. John may not have been there but my surrogate brother was looking out for me.
To celebrate our 2nd Anniversary Will arranged a trip to the Lawrence, Kansas so I could see my brother’s old house and see if I could find any clues as to where he might be. I started feeling really ill during the trip; we both put it down to being back where I spent such happy times and where everything had gone really wrong. When we got home I was still feeling awful I made an appointment to visit the doctor, Will had to work so was unable to come with me, the doctor took some blood and told me he would get back to me within the next couple of days with the results. Will and I were anxious for the next couple of days, waiting on the results of the tests, in turned out that we had nothing to worry about. The doctor called on the evening of the 3rd day and told me that I was pregnant; I thanked him and arranged to go in and see him again the following week. At the appointment the following week, the doctor did the scan and that’s when we found out we were having twins.
Will and I knew then more than ever before that we needed to track down John and the boys; I needed them to be connected to the newest family members. We both requested a sabbatical from work and set off for South Dakota. I came back to present day, and as I looked up again, into the eyes of the man that had stolen my heart, he knew what I had been thinking about, and it was almost as though at times he could read my mind.
We opened the doors to the SUV, walked up the stairs to Bobby’s front door and knocked. The front door opened and Bobby Singer was standing in front of us, this was the first time I met the man, but the next thing I know he has thumped Will on the arm and then pulled him into a big old bear hug exclaiming “Will Talbot, how you doing?, where you been?, what you been doing?, why haven’t you contacted me recently? “, Will told him to “Take a breath, I’ll explain everything. Do you think we can come in and grab a drink, it’s been a long drive.” At this point Bobby turned and spotted me for the first time. “Of course, come in, come in and I’ll get you some water”..

At this point Bobby turned and spotted me for the first time. “Of course, come in, come in and I’ll get you some water”..
Chapter Four – Bobby
Bobby presented Will and I with shot glasses of water, I looked at Will and he picked up on what I was thinking “How is this supposed to quench my thirst?” The look in his eyes said everything is ok, just drink the shot, and Bobby will get us a longer drink. We both drank down the shots and Will turned to Bobby and said “Satisfied, can I get a beer now and Sam will have tea if you’ve got it, if not regular water ‘not holy water.” I looked quizzically at Will, and mouthed ‘holy water’.
Bobby said “Sure and disappeared into the kitchen to get what we wanted”. Will turned to me and explained that this was a test Bobby did with everyone that he hadn’t seen in a while. The shot glasses contained a shot of holy water and that this would detect if the person had become possessed since the last time he had seen them, and more so with me as he had never met me before.
While we were waiting for Bobby to return with the drinks, Will told me that he had met Bobby when he was nineteen and he had just lost his parents to a demon attack. Will’s parents were killed in what the local police referred to as a B&E gone wrong, he didn’t know at the time that it was a demon attack. It was a couple of weeks after the accident and a FBI agent called ‘Robert Plant’ turned up at the house asking a series of what he thought were very strange questions. The police never solved the case, and this led Will to studying Law at Stanford and then at Northeastern. He joined the police in Bisbee, Arizona where he worked his up from beat cop to Homicide Detective and then joined the FBI and later NCIS. During his time as a Homicide cop in Bisbee he discovered that there was no FBI agent ‘Robert Plant’ and there never had been. This sent Will off trying to find who this person was and why he had turned up impersonating an FBI agent asking those strange questions.
At this point Bobby returned with the beer and tea, I was dying for a coffee but was avoiding caffeine whilst I was pregnant. Bobby handed us the drinks, moved some of the books off the sofa and asked us to sit down. At this point Bobby took up the story; he said that through his contacts he had heard that William Talbot was trying to track down an FBI agent ‘Robert Plant’. Bobby knew that this was one of the names he used when investigating and he recognized Talbot from a case he had investigated years earlier to avoid red flags being thrown up, he called William Talbot and arranged to meet. Will and Bobby met and Bobby explained what had killed Will’s parents, and about hunters. At first Will was unsure, however after Bobby showed him what he found out about his parents death Will started to believe.
Will took the chance at the natural break in the history to introduce Bobby and myself. As soon as Will started to explain who I was, Bobby’s whole composure changed, it was though he appeared to crumble in on himself. Will picked up on this immediately and asked ‘What’s up?’ Bobby said he wanted me to prove I was a Winchester, this was not entirely unexpected and I reached for my bag and my paperwork. Bobby looked it over quickly and said he wanted to validate everything, again not unexpected in order to give him a chance to run the paperwork we excused ourselves and left to stay at a local hotel. We said we would be back in a couple of days to give him the opportunity to check that I was in fact who I said I was.
We got to the hotel, about 30 minutes away, checked in and went out and found a really good local restaurant grabbed something to eat and went back to the hotel where we crashed out, it had been a long day after all. I woke up a couple of times in the night the twins were moving around more than usual and kept kicking my bladder, I was also starting to think that something major was about to happen but I didn’t know what. We spent the following day, investigating Sioux County, South Dakota where Bobby’s salvage yard was based.
After we left Bobby was on the phone to Sam and Dean asking them whether or not they had an Aunt Samantha. As the boys had both been so young last time we had met, and after their father had taken them on the road we were no longer in touch their response was “NO!” Bobby hung up and started to do the background checks that hunters do, he checked birth records, college transcripts, employment history, and security clearance. Two days later, Bobby phoned Sam and Dean back and told them that he thought that they should drop by the salvage yard as there was someone that they needed to meet, who had information about their father. He then phoned Will and told him that he had run all of his checks and that I had “checked out” as he phrased it and that we should drop by the salvage yard in a couple of days.

Chapter Five – The First Meeting
Whilst we were waiting to drop by Bobby’s house, Will and I were doing some research of our own. I was looking into the Winchester family background and Will was researching the Talbots. We were trying to answer the questions that had been raised over the past 30 years for both of us.
Why was it that I families had been ‘cursed’ for want of a better word? What abilities did I have? Did I have any dormant abilities? My grandfather after all was precognitive and telekinetic, my precognition was apparent but was the telekinesis laying dormant or just not there. As I was having twins what would happen to them? Would the youngest one continue the pattern or would the abilities be passed to both of them? My earlier research had shown that this was the first set of twins in the Winchester line. Will needed to know why his parents had been targeted, as far as he could tell he didn’t have any abilities. However, it was strange at times how we could look at each and know exactly what the other was thinking without having to say anything. Will told me that on more than one occasion this had happened on a case as well, he said he had been working with Tony and they would look at each other him and he would know what Tony was thinking.
We would take breaks to investigate the town, grab a meal and start researching the best possible items to fill a nursery with. We were making a list so that as soon as we returned to DC we could purchase the items and decorate the nursery, I now had a little less than 3 months to go. We both decided that we would need to demon proof the nursery but needed to do this as subtly as possible (a bright red devils trap on the ceiling might raise some questions with colleagues). We found a carpenter (also a hunter) who could make us a crib and he would add all the needed protections. We decided to lay a hardwood floor and make a devils’ trap in lighter wood by the door and window and then cover this with rugs and lastly on each corner of the ceiling we would paint angels.
As we were packing up on one of our research sessions, and getting ready to go out and get something to eat, Bobby phoned and asked us to drop by the following day. He said it was important but wouldn’t tell us anymore than that. My stomach flipped, would I finally to be getting some information about where John, Dean and Sam were? We headed out to eat but my heart really wasn’t in it, Will looked across the table at me and said “Everything is going to be alright” in the calming way that he has. I knew immediately that he was right, that there was no reason to worry as I could not affect the outcome of the news.
We arrived at Bobby’s at about 10 the following day, and as we pulled up I saw it. It was John’s car, I couldn’t believe he still had it my heart leapt into me throat and tears came to my eyes. I was going to see my brother after 25 years, I was going to be able to introduce him to my family and hopefully see my nephews again. As I walked past the car, it was still how I remembered it, sleek black and spotless, I laid my hand on the hood, and I was hit by the old memories of him driving me around Lawrence with Mary and Dean during my summer vacations. As I stood there with my hand on the hood, a voice came from the house “Hey lady, get your hand off my car”, it wasn’t Johns voice it was too young. A rush of thoughts flooded my brain. Why did John get rid of the car he loved it so much, whose car is this and why did Bobby want us back if John wasn’t here. My knees went out from underneath me, and the next thing I remember was Will and Bobby leaning over me in his living room. I turn to Will who was fussing over me making sure that I was alright, that I was not hurt, and that the babies were ok, I took a sip from the glass of water he handed and then sat up.
As I look around the room, I see two men standing in the corner of the room, one who is looking slightly sheepish Will must have laid into him when I passed out. They step out of the corner, and as I get a better look at them I can see who they are without having to be told, they look so much like their mother and their father. I attempt to stand up and Will pushes me back down telling me I need to rest. I tell him I am fine, that I can rest later and that I need to do this now. Will helps me up, and I turn to the two men I have a lump in my throat is has been 25 years since I have seen either of them.
Bobby tells them that it is ok, that he has checked us both out we are not possessed and that Will is a hunter and that I am his wife. The men slowly step further into the room. The oldest one starts to apologize, I put my hand up and stop him saying “Dean, it’s ok; I understand totally, you must love the car as must as your father does.” He glances at the younger one and mouths ‘what the f…, is going on’, Sam mouths back ‘I have no idea’. I realize at this point that Bobby has got them here but hasn’t told them who we are. I move towards them and shortly I am standing in front of my nephews. I take in a deep breath, I know that this is going to be hard for me and them, and begin “my name is Samantha Winchester, and I’m your aunt”. They look at the each other and then back at me and Dean states “That’s a load of bull lady, we don’t have an aunt.” Bobby interrupts at this point as he can see that this is about to get heated. He tells the boys that it’s true, I am Samantha Winchester that I arrived a few days ago, and that he has done all the usual and several other checks to verify me details.
Will and I tell Dean and Sam that we understand that they probably need sometime. That they will want to read through Bobby’s research and verify this for themselves. We tell them that we are staying at a local hotel tell them Bobby has the number and that once they are happy that everything is ok and they want to talk some more to get Bobby to give us a call. I reluctantly left, as I knew nothing else was going to be accomplished now and until Dean and Sam were secure in the knowledge of who I was they wouldn’t tell me anything about John.

Thanks Sammy's Girl I wasn't sure if I had managed to present the boys properly. Glad you like the story so far and I hope to get another chapter up over the weekend.

Hope you like, I have taken a slight shift and this from the boys perspective, will get back to Samantha towards the end of the chapter.
I reluctantly left, as I knew nothing else was going to be accomplished now and until Dean and Sam were secure in the knowledge of who I was they wouldn’t tell me anything about John.
Chapter Six – Should we or shouldn’t we?
As Will and I drove away I looked in the rear view mirror hoping against hope that this wouldn’t be the last time that I saw my nephews. I had so many unanswered questions about John and Dean and Sam could hopefully fill in the blanks. We arrived back at the hotel and waited for a call from them.
At the salvage yard, Dean and Sam turned to Bobby and started with the questions “What do you know old man?”, “Who the hell is that?”, “Where’s the evidence?”, “Are you sure it’s true?” Bobby put his hand up and got them to sit down and started to explain what he found out. Bobby stated that he had verified all the paperwork that I had left with him. He past this over, both John and my birth certificates, John’s and Mary wedding picture with me as a flower girl, my school transcripts, and the Winchester family tree. The more he said that he was able to verify the story, the more Dean and Sam started to calm down and their faces went from shock to calm to annoyance.
Dean turned to Sam stating “Dad and his secrets, I can understand why he hide the storage lock up from us, but why would he hide family?” Sam in turn turned to his brother and stated “I don’t know Dean, but what do we do now? Do we ring her back and get to know her or do we follow Dad’s lead and keep her shut out of our lives?” They seemed to be working themselves back up into a state.
So Bobby jumped in and said “You don’t need to make any decisions this minute, take some time, do some research”, he knew this was how Sam worked things through in his head, “fix a car”, knowing that this is how Dean worked out his issues, “there isn’t a shortness of cars that need to be repaired in the yard”.”You can come back for dinner and decide at the end of the day, I’m sure that Samantha is not going anywhere and will totally understand that you need to take the time to process all of this.”
Dean turned to Sam “Sounds like a plan” he declared and walked out the front door across the salvage to a Red and White ’67 Chevy Impala that he had been fixing up on and off since he had turned 16, originally it was going to be his car, then when John gave him the Impala the plan changed. He decided to do the car up and give it to Sam. Once Sam had dropped out of Stanford and joined Dean back on the road this idea had been put on the back burner, but he still loved working on the car and knew at some point that he would give the car to Sam. He knew that his love of the car came from his father but he didn’t know how much of a family tradition it truly was. He turned on a radio, picked up a wrench and started on the carburetor, this had been acting up last time he had turned on the car. As he started on the car, Dust in the Wind started on the radio and he slipped down the side of the car head and his hands and screamed out to no one in particular “Why Dad, Why do you keep doing this to me..”
In the house, Sam set up his laptop and started researching ‘Samantha Winchester’ he wanted to see if he could find out any more information. He knew how he felt; this was someone he needed to speak to. He had so little family and if someone could fill in some of the blanks for him then he needed to speak to them. He was also sure that Dean wouldn’t want to speak to them, to find out anything about their family. This threw him into turmoil as he didn’t want to go against his brother, every time that happened one or both of them suffered, he had been possessed, Dean had been kidnapped by Gordon and he had then been blown up and both of them had been shot up, but he really wanted to find out more about his family.
The evening drew in and Bobby shouted out at Dean to start clearing up as dinner was about to be served. Dean packed the tools away, turned the radio off and headed in; he went upstairs to the bathroom and washed up. As he walked downstairs he still wasn’t sure what they would be doing. He thought that they should at least speak to this ‘Samantha Winchester’ and find out if she knew more about the family, he was concerned about Sam and his promise to both him and Dad. He didn’t know if Sam would want to speak to her though, family could be a sensitive subject to him sometimes he wanted to know more and other times he just shut down. Which way was he swinging today? He walked into the kitchen and asked “What’s cooking, Bobby”. Bobby turned to him, handed him plates, knives, forks, spoons and as he went to hand him the glasses Sam walked in. He passed the glasses to Sam and Sam and Dean set the table for the three of them and they sat down and started to eat.
Following dinner they made their way outside with a beer each and Bobby broached the subject that had been hanging there all through dinner, but hadn’t been mentioned ‘Samantha Winchester’. “So boys, what are you going to do?” Sam and Dean answered at the same time “I think that we should get her back here, so we can ask her some questions” they then turned to each other “You do”. Bobby laughed it was uncanny he thought how they could do that, at times they were so in tune that if you didn’t know better you could swear that they were reading each other thoughts. Sam started “I need to know what she knows about Dad and Mum, she has memories from when they were young, before he started down this track, you have those memories to Dean but I don’t and really need to know about Dad before demons and other supernatural things came crashing into our lives.” Dean continued “I know and I need to know what she knows about the supernatural? She is married to a hunter after all.” “That seals it then” Bobby said “I’ll call them and get them back here in the morning, 10am ok for the both of you?”
It was about 10pm when the phone rang in the hotel; Will answered it in a hushed voice as I had just drifted off. Bobby told him the news and Will said we would be back in the morning. He gently nudged me awake and told me that Sam and Dean had made a decision that they wanted to talk to me and that we should swing by Bobby’s around 10am tomorrow. I leaned up and kissed him, he put his hand to my stomach and the twins moved around they knew that I was happy and so it would seem were they, I was going to get my answers and my family was growing again.

I leaned up and kissed him, he put his hand to my stomach and the twins moved around they knew that I was happy and so it would seem were they, I was going to get my answers and my family was growing again.
Chapter Seven – My Family
I woke early the following morning with butterflies in my stomach this was the day that I had been hoping for, since John had walked out of my life and took my nephews with him. I had to deal with my parents’ deaths on my own, the wills and the disappointment from my father when I didn’t join the family business but went into law enforcement instead. My mother’s disappointment that I hadn’t married and had children before she died, all of these things are much easier to deal with if you have someone you can talk to around you and this had been John. Even though there was a large age gap, we could always talk about things. He would tell me about things that had happened to him during the war, his relationship with Mary and how he was frightened that he wouldn’t be a good father. I told him that he would be a great dad; he had been like a father to me more so than my own dad. My father was cold and distant at times and very rarely around spending lots of time at the office or on trips for business.
I came out of my reminiscences, as Will woke up. We went and had breakfast, he could tell I was nervous and he leaned over grabbed both my hands in his raised them to his lips kissed them and said “You know how much I love you, that whatever happens today our family is going to be great, the kids will be loved and they will know who they are, who their family is and what they have done to keep the world safe.” I lent across the table drew his face to mine and kissed him deeply, he always knew what I needed to hear and how to make me feel safe and I loved him for that. After we finished breakfast we headed back to the hotel room where I collected some of the old family pictures as I wanted to be able to show Dean and Sam their family and we left for Bobby’s salvage yard.
As we pulled up in the yard, Dean was out front leaning against the Impala and my stomach flipped, once with butterflies and then the babies reacting to the butterflies. I couldn’t get over the fact that Johns’ car was in front of me and I could reach out and touch it. I needed to know where my brother was and what had caused him to give away his pride and joy; I just hoped it wasn’t for the reason I that come to my mind. He had once told me when I asked if I could have the car that the only way I would get the car, “was over my dead body”. Will and I got out of the SUV, and I slowly approached Dean and put my hand out hoping that I would get a better reaction than two days ago, he stared and me but took me hand in his and shook it. With that we headed inside.
We were greeted at the door by Bobby and Sam, Bobby offered us a drink. We moved into the living room and sat down drinking our drinks in an awkward silence. No one knew who should start or even how to start the conversation. Eventually I reached into my bag and pulled out the photo album I had brought with me and asked Sam and Dean if they wanted to see pictures of John when he was young. The album covered John’s life from the beginning to the last time I had seen him at the hospital when Sam was born. Sam took the album and a smile came across his face, I could tell how much he wanted to see these pictures it was as though he had never seen pictures of when his father and mother were young. Dean was slightly more apprehensive but they sat next to each other flipping through the album and every now and then would look up at me and ask a question about who was in the photo. As they were viewing the pictures I could see so much of John and Mary in the boys, my heart was filled with joy. A hand touched mine and I looked up and Will was smiling at me, “I know our kids will have your kind eyes and my smile” he said to me and I smiled back at me “I hope so” I replied.
When the boys reached the last picture in the album they both looked up and said “is this it?” I took the album back and knew that the hard part of the conversation was about to start. “Yes that’s the last photo that I have. It was the last time I saw John. I was on my annual visit to John and Mary’s, when Mary went into the hospital to have Sam. Whilst John was with Mary in the delivery room I stayed in the waiting room keeping Dean occupied.” Sam looked at Dean who shrugged his shoulders and said “I was four dude, I don’t remember anything”. I continued telling them what I remembered about the day that Sam was born how much he weighed and how long he was. This caused Sam to move uncomfortably in his chair and Dean to smirk slightly. I turned to Dean and said “I was there the day you were born as well”, and told them his height and weight which caused the reverse reaction.
By the time we had finished looking through the album it was lunchtime and we all headed for the kitchen were Bobby had prepared lunch for everyone and we sat down to eat. As we eat a leisurely lunch, the twins were moving around a lot and I couldn’t work out what was either upsetting them or making them happy, I hadn’t worked out how their movements changed according to mood yet. I excused myself from the table telling everyone that I needed to take a walk. I left the men at the table and went outside as I spotted the Impala, and walked slowly towards it I had sudden rush of emotions. It was though I had started to pick up on what the twins were feeling, at first this was unsettling and I started to feel dizzy and reached out to steady myself. The next thing I knew was Will’s arms were around me, and I was leaning against the Impala. This time there was no “lady get your hands off my car”, instead there was “are you alright, do you need anything, we need to get you inside”. We started back towards Bobby’s; on one side I had Will and one the other Dean who were both keeping me upright and steady. I don’t know what had brought Will and Dean outside but at that moment I was just glad to see them.
We stepped into the house and I moved to the sofa and sat down, Bobby appeared with a glass of water and Sam brought in a damp flannel, which he put around the back of my neck. They all stood over me with concern on their faces. I turned my face to each of them in turn and said “I’m OK, just a lot of emotions all at once and the twins were dancing up a storm”. Sam and Dean turned back and said “do you want to take a break; we have time we can get together again tomorrow and pick up from there”. I turned to them and said “No, I’m OK. Give me a couple of minutes I just need to get the twins settled again, I’m not sure what set them off”. I sat there quietly watching the concern on Sam and Dean’s faces and saw John during Mary’s pregnancy, it was amazing how like their dad they were, I just hoped that my children would be like that with their dad. The twins settled right down, and my emotions leveled off I no longer felt all the emotions coursing through them, this was something new and I would need to look into it but not now.
As I was feeling more like myself and the twins were now calm, I asked Sam and Dean if they had any questions about anything they had seen in the album or in general. Sam started by asking “Where have you been and why didn’t Dad tell us about you?” I responded “Well, I’m not sure why your Dad didn’t tell you about his family. We had a falling out when you were about 5 months old Sam, I phoned your Dad to tell him about a vision I had had of Mary on the ceiling with blood dripping from her stomach and him leaning over your crib.” As I was talking about my vision, Sam turned to Dean, his face dropped, and he stood up and started pacing saying “He knew, he always knew, why didn’t he stop it” Dean turned to Sam and said “He didn’t believe, any more than I believed you when you first told me, I told you it was a nightmare, that’s probably what he thought”. They were having the discussion as though Will and I weren’t in the room. I looked at Will and we both whispered, another youngest Winchester with a gift.
I interrupted the boys as I could see from the body language that this was about to get very vocal. “Sam, Dean’s right, John thought that they were just nightmares. He didn’t know about our family’s history. He didn't know that the youngest member in each generation of the Winchester clan has a gift. I have visions and have had them since the age of 14, my uncle John’s younger brother was telekinetic (could move things with his mind), and my grandfather was both.”
This made Sam’s eyes go even wider and he exclaimed “That explains so much” we all looked at him in puzzlement and he proceeded to tell us about what the demon had said to him whilst he was trapped in Cold Oak, “I am looking for the best & brightest of your generation, that there were other generations, let’s just focus on yours at the moment” and how at the time he had tried to get the demon to tell him what he meant but how he was also focusing on trying to find a way get out of there alive. Dean in turn said “What the hell, dude, when I asked you after if he told you anything else, you told me no. You didn’t think that I needed to know this? That this wasn’t important, that maybe we could have used that information for research purposes.” Sam looked back at this brother slightly forlornly and whispered “I didn’t know how to tell you, it turns out that it was my fault that Mum died after all, I couldn’t bear for you to look at me with disgust.” Dean pulled Sam towards him, grasped his face between his hands and said “How could, you think that, that I would ever blame you for Mum’s death. This is not your fault; it has never been your fault” The boys were both deep in their own thoughts and had obviously forgotten where they were and who they were with.
Will and I left as we were both starting to feel uncomfortable at being here during a deeply personal moment between Sam and Dean. We turned to Bobby and said “let the boys know that I am sorry, I didn’t mean to bring up bad memories or cause problems between them. That we will be at the hotel and if they want to get in touch again you’ve got the number.” Will and I left the salvage yard, and I looked into the rear view mirror hoping that this wasn’t the last time I would see the boys, they had found out some of their history but I still had unanswered questions. We arrived back at the hotel and I started to feel unsettled again, and the twins were moving around a lot again. I really needed to work out why all of a sudden at 6 months I was picking up the twins emotions, it hadn’t happened before and as far as I was aware this wasn’t one of the Winchester gifts..

We arrived back at the hotel and I started to feel unsettled again, and the twins were moving around a lot again. I really needed to work out why all of a sudden at 6 months I was picking up the twins emotions, it hadn’t happened before and as far as I was aware this wasn’t one of the Winchester gifts..
Chapter Eight – Another Day in Sioux Falls
As it was still early Will and I decided to walk around town, I was hoping that this would calm the twins down and also help me work through the thoughts flooding my brain. AS Will and I walked through town hand in hand I instantly found myself comforted, this was the pattern whenever I had my hand in Will’s hand it comforted me and after we had found out I was pregnant, it had also calmed the twins down. Will and I didn’t have a direction in our heads as we walked we realized we had been walking around just enjoying each other’s company for just over an hour and that it was close to dinner time.
We started to head back towards the hotel, and stopped off at one of the local restaurants that did incredible food. As we sat waiting for our order to arrive Will turned to me and said “What’s been upsetting you all day, and before you say nothing I know something is not right with you”. I took hold of his hands across the table and replied “I’m not sure, things are happening but I don’t know how to explain them to you.” He raised my hands up to his lips kissed them and said “You know that you can tell me anything and I won’t think you are crazy. You know that I love you, the twins and will do so no matter what happens now or in the future.” Our food arrived and as we ate our meal I tried to explain to Will what had been going on over the last couple of days.
I told him that at lunch today the twins had been kicking up a storm and that I thought the best thing would be take a walk and calm them down as this always worked in the past and this was why I had left the house. That as I stepped off the porch and I had seen the Impala I was flooded with the memories of John & I in the car, John and Mary and finally John, Mary and the boys coming back from the hospital to the house in Lawrence. The emotions that these memories brought up seemed to be escalated threefold, it was as though the twins were picking up on my emotions and feeding into them as well and at this point I had found it all so overwhelming I had almost passed out and this was when you and Dean had found me. As I came to in the living room I had tried to work out what had brought you both outside at that exact moment that I needed you. I told him that the connection with the twins had gotten stronger over the last couple of days since we had been in South Dakota and I was starting to get the answers I had been looking for.
Will responded “I came outside as I heard a young female voice in my head telling me that you were in trouble and that you needed me that I needed to bring someone else with me as I would need the help to bring you back inside.” Will continued “I don’t know whose voice it was just that the urgency of the voice meant that I got up from the table and asked someone to come with me as you were in trouble”, Dean got up and told Sam to grab a cloth and the first aid just in case and asked Bobby to grab a drink as well. We looked at each other, not with concern as most people would do in this situation but with slight bemusement, we did after all know about the Supernatural, so this would be yet another thing that we would need to add to our lists of items to research for the Winchester / Talbot family trees.
We had finished our main meals and ordered drinks and desert and continued our discussion on our new family and our ever expanding abilities. Every time we seemed to an answer more questions came up. We had discovered that the youngest member in each generation of the Winchester clan possessed some kind of mental ability, but we didn’t know how having twins would affect this, was the way my emotions were being affected another ability, did both of the twins have the ability or only one, why did Will hear a young female voice and who was she. We discussed it and agreed that we needed to speak to Dean and Sam again to see if they knew anything about the abilities especially after Sam’s comment about Cold Oak.
After we finished our meal we headed back to the hotel, by this time the twins were calm and so was I. As we walked back we discussed what we knew and what we thought might be happening, we knew that I had visions and by the sound of it so did Sam, that it may be possible that Will had a latent ability, possibly telepathy and empathy and that he too was being affected by the twins. In order to confirm Will’s abilities and where they were coming from then we agreed that we needed to learn more about his family’s history and Bobby could definitely help us with that. We decided with the birth of the twins approaching we needed to know the potential abilities that they may have.
When we got back to our hotel the light was flashing on the phone, I hit the voice mail button and there was a message from Sam “If it is no trouble could you both stop back at Bobby’s in the morning as Dean and I wanted to talk with you some more about Mum & Dad” the message ended and I hit the play button again, I couldn’t quite believe it they actually wanted to see us again I had convinced myself that after the heated discussion at the end of our second meeting that they would decide to follow their father and cut me out of their lives.
At 10am the following day we were again pulling into Singer Autos Salvage Yard to meet with Bobby and the boys and to discuss the Winchester family. I was feeling calm and so were the twins I just hoped that I could keep our emotions under control that whatever I was presented with I could hold it together because I wasn’t sure if I could deal with another episode like yesterday. As we opened the car doors Dean stepped out from behind a red and white impala, what is it about impala’s and the Winchester’s it would appear that we really do have a love of the cars; he approached wiping his hands on a rolled down set of overalls and said “Hi, Aunt Samantha” that seemed so weird to me, firstly that someone was calling me Aunt and secondly calling me Samantha. I hadn’t been Samantha in such a long time, most people I knew called me Sam, and the only time I was called Samantha I knew I was in trouble. I replied “Hi, Dean just call me Sam”. He looked at me quizzically and said “this could get confusing really quickly” and it suddenly registered that during our discussions there would be two Sam’s in the room and could get confusing as to who was being expected to answer the question. I replied “call me Toni, my middle name is Antoinette”, “Ok, Aunt Toni” Dean replied lets go in, I’ll get cleaned up and we can continue our conversation from yesterday. As the door opened to the house I turned to Dean and said “You don’t need the Aunt, Toni is just fine” at that moment Sam walked past and looked at the pair of us perplexed, I told Dean that I would fill Sam in whilst he went and cleaned up.
I told Sam about the agreement to call me Toni, to avoid any confusion whilst we were together and that as they were both old enough I didn’t think that they needed to call me Aunt. As I was explaining the origin of the name, Dean walked back into the room. I explained that this was in honor of his great grandmother’s, she was Antoinette Dubois who had been born in a small town on the outskirts of Richmond, Virginia and was descended from a group of Huguenot immigrants who settled in what is now Powhatan County. Sam seemed fascinated that I had researched the family back that far I told him if he wanted I would give him the family trees and the research that I had done on the Winchester family tree. He said that he would like that and I went out to my car to grab my laptop and cables to link my laptop to his. We turned on our computers and Dean, Will and Bobby looked at us and almost in unison said “Geeks of the world unite”, Sam and I turned to them and said “Yeah, they do” we very quickly transferred the family tree files from my PC to his PC. At least now there would be someone else who could help me work up the family history if we took a branch each, maybe we could get it done quicker.
Bobby, Dean and Will brought in a tray of drinks and selection of snacks (peanut brittle, chocolate chip, macadamia nut cookies, brownie squares and doughnuts) so we all settled down to start up where we had left off yesterday. Before we began I turned to Dean and Sam and said “I need to know you’ve not mentioned John once, you are driving his Impala, where is he, what’s happened to him”. Will leant over, put his hand on my stomach and pulled my face around to his and said in a whisper “stay calm, remember the twins are picking up on your emotions” this calmed me down. I replied “I need you now, can you sit beside me and make sure that you we stay calm”. As I turned back to the boys I noticed that their faces had dropped, Dean started and Sam was sat next to him mirroring Will’s attitude with me and Bobby was behind him with his hand on his shoulder, I suddenly knew that this was going to be bad.
Dean started “I don’t know how to say this other than to just come straight out and say it. Dad is dead; he died in November 2006, he was killed by the same demon that killed our Mom.” Dean took a deep intake of breath and Sam picked up from there “He made a deal with the yellow eyed demon to save Dean, the yellow eyed demon is the one who killed Mum, this demon is now dead Dean killed him a year ago at the Devil’s gate in Wyoming”. Although I had known deep down that this was the case what with the Impala sitting outside it was still a shock but my emotions were staying calm. Dean picked up on what I had been thinking and said “No, I’ve had the car since I passed my driving test and Dad realized that he needed more room for the weapons, said it was a family tradition, and brought himself a truck.” I said “Yes, it is a family tradition, your great granddad set up the tradition that whenever a Winchester passed their driving test they got a car. Your dad picked the Impala, and when I passed my test I got one as well, it reminded me of all the good times I had with your Dad. I was surprised he had passed it on that was all as he told me he would never part with the car.”
I asked but knew the answer “Where is he buried?” Dean replied he’s not buried anywhere, he was cremated, and Sam said “We took his dog tags and put them with Mum in Lawrence”. Dean turned to him and said “They are?” Sam said “Yes, it seemed like the right thing to do” Both boys turned to me and said as one “Toni are you ok?” I turned to them and replied “Am I ok, are you two ok? How are you dealing with all of this? I can only imagine how hard this must have been for you on your own. Dean if you are anything like your father, and from what I’ve seen so far you are then you must have been feeling like this was your fault. I can tell you from knowing your father that this is not your fault that he wouldn’t want you blaming yourself and that if he had to he would do it again. I also know that as a parent you do anything to keep your kids safe, and before you say it making a deal with a demon is extreme but if you know about the supernatural and you can use it, then making the deal is a no brainer” As I was talking looks were being exchanged between Dean, Sam and Bobby I thought that I need to get at the bottom of that later but now I turned to the boys and said what else do you want to know..

As I was talking looks were being exchanged between Dean, Sam and Bobby I thought that I need to get at the bottom of that later but now I turned to the boys and said what else do you want to know..
Chapter Nine – A family starts to come together
Whilst we had been talking the full implications of what the boys had told me hadn’t had the chance to really sink in. During a break in the conversation, Bobby and Sam went to get everyone a drink and Dean and Will started to talk about hunting and the monsters that they had tangled with. As the room became suddenly quiet I felt the need to get out and getting some fresh air. , I was finding it hard to breathe, I had lost my brother, and he wasn’t coming back this time. I made my way outside and sat on the porch swing. I sat there swinging slowly, rubbing my stomach and thinking about what I had lost. As I was sat there I noticed that my cheek was getting damp, I looked into the sky expecting to see rain but the sky was clear and I realized that I had started to cry and soon I was sobbing so hard that I was having a hard time catching my breath. I started to scream at the heavens “How could you do this to your sons? How could you leave them alone fighting this fight?”
I had told Dean I understood but he wasn’t here now and I was angry at John, had he realized the damage and the pain he would cause doing what he did. I then yelled at the heavens “How could you do this to me, you left me with Dad and Mum, you cut off communications with me for over 20 years, what did I do to deserve that, you cut me out of my nephews lives, you never got to meet my husband a great man who loves me, you never got the discover the family secret, and you blamed me for Mary’s death I was 16 years old how could you think that I was linked to that”. As I was yelling I was getting angrier and angrier at John, the tears dried up and suddenly from the pit of my stomach I could feel the anger boiling up and as it reached its peak the windshields in some of the cars in the salvage yard exploded. I turned around and found Dean and Will looking at me in astonishment and concern.
Will said “Bobby’s back with the drinks and after that display I really think that you need a drink and so do we”. We made our way back to Bobby’s living room and began to drink in quiet Sam picked up the obvious tension and asked “What’s going on”. I said “I was a bit upset by the news and had to go outside for some air and to vent”. Dean jumped in with “A bit upset, what happens when you are very upset, and why did Dad blame you for Mum’s death?” As Dean was talking Will was moving himself into the space between Dean and me and he turned to Dean and said “Back the hell off. You don’t know what you are talking about. You’ve had a year to deal with the news of Johns’ death, your aunt has had 20 minutes, so if she needs to vent at your Dad then she will vent at your Dad. Bobby by the way we owe you half a dozen windscreens, sorry about that”. Bobby looked at Will in response and said “Don’t worry about it, there all Junkers and only used for spare parts so windscreens are not important.”
As the tension was growing in the room I could feel a pressure in my head building. It was the same feeling as I had just before all the windscreens went bang and I knew I couldn’t let that happen in here, so I started to hum (Stairway to Heaven) in the hopes that it would calm me down. Everyone in the room turned to look at me and in unison said “Led Zepplin” I said “Yes, it calms me down. It’s a trick John taught me and this was the song he used to use.” Dean said “I know, he taught me the same trick. Remember Sam I told you about it on the flight from hell” Sam and Dean exchanged a knowing glance and turned to me and said “We’ll tell you about it someday”.
Will stepped away from Dean and came and sat next to me on the couch and said “Are you sure you’re ok, you got quite a shock today. I know you really hoped he was still alive.” As he was talking to me in the quiet manner that he has I was becoming calmer and so were the twins. I said “Yes, I’m fine. It was a shock to find out about John and I hadn’t really prepared myself as well as I thought I had, but I’ll be fine. As to the other thing that’s new and I’m not sure how I feel about that, the visions I can deal with but being telekinetic is a whole new ball game. I’m wondering however whether it’s my power or the babies. Do you think it’s possible that one of them is empathic and the other is telekinetic? You know I have been picking up on their emotions over the last month and that may explain what happened outside.”
I could see from the corner of my eye Dean, Sam and Bobby looking at each and mouthing “What the hell is going on?” I turned to them and told them that they all needed to sit down as I had something to tell them, Will took my hands in his and asked me “Are you sure you want to do this?”. I said “They have a right to know, it’s their family too”. Dean, Sam and Bobby sat down and I began to tell them what I knew about the Winchester history. How the youngest in every generation was named Sam or a variation thereof ‘Samuel’ and ‘Samantha’ and that yes they were related to those Winchesters and had an inheritance coming to them of close to $5 million each. I assumed that as John had not told the boys of my existence and as Dad had cut him off then he hadn’t told him about his parents either. I told them about my parents and the huge argument that Dad and John had had when John wanted to do things his own way. Dean looked at Sam and said “I told you, you two were more alike than you ever wanted to admit”.
I reminded them of the conversation about the last time I had spoken to their father, but included everything that I hadn’t told them last time. I told them how after Mary had died John had phoned me and asked me “Why did you do it, why did you hurt Mary, I thought that you loved her. “ I told them that I had pleaded and begged him and tried to explain to him that I had nothing to do with Mary’s death, but either he didn’t believe me or he needed someone to blame and at that time I was as good as anyone. Both of the boys jumped in “It wasn’t your fault and I am sure as soon as he spoke to Missouri he realized it to but the stubborn son of a bitch wouldn’t know how to apologize. He probably thought that he had done too much damage for you to ever forgive him. He may also have thought when he knew about the demon that he was keeping you safe, he was really great a keeping things secret to keep people safe.” I asked “Missouri, who’s Missouri”, Sam replied “She’s a psychic that Dad met in Lawrence shortly after Mum died. She told Dad about what’s really out there and put him on the path to find the demon that killed Mum. “
We had been talking for about an hour and I asked Bobby if I could get another mug of tea and asked the boys if we could take a break from the family history for a couple of minutes. The boys said “No problem” and headed into the kitchen with Bobby. I needed to get my head straight after the last revelation. John had know all this time that I wasn’t involved, he knew what had killed Mary and he hadn’t bothered to ring me and tell me he was sorry. I could feel the anger growing again and I then felt a hand reach for me and I started to calm again. Bobby and the boys came back in with the drinks, I took my tea and as I slowly started to drink it I was getting calmer and calmer. It was strange even after all this time how my big brother could get to me as though I was a teenager who needed his love and approval.
I started to tell the boys what I had found out when I researched the family tree, how the youngest Winchester in each generation had inherited a gift and that I was unsure what this meant for the twins. That in the whole Winchester history there had never been a set of twins born to the youngest in a generation. Sam almost leapt up with glee, he could see the potential for research and a wide smile brightened up his face, this was something he could do to help. His smile reminded me so much of John at that age, how one smile from him and I could feel everything would be ok. I could see so much of John in both of his boys, I wonder if they knew how alike they really were.
We also discussed what I had found out about Mary’s side of the family and the links to the Colt. How she and Pastor Jim were related and how the oldest male in her family had all been hunters so with or without her death, Dean was destined to be a hunter. What was not destined was for Sam and John to join the group as well. Dean should have received the Colt on his 18th birthday and along with it the ability to create bullets for it. The Colt however had disappeared many years ago along with the ability to create the bullets. Dean came back with “We have it we have the colt however all the bullets are gone. Bobby has been trying to get it working again.”
Sam and Dean sat there in quiet and shock, I could sense the thoughts being passed between them. 'How did we not know any of this, why didn’t Dad ever tell us and why was Mum targeted, was it my fault.' I looked Sam square in the face and said “It was never your fault, anymore than it was my fault. Whatever that thing told you, you are not too blame for anything, Your Mum’s death, Jess’s death or your Dad’s death and that goes for you to Dean. Your Dad was so focused on finding the demon that killed your Mum he didn’t spend anytime researching her family, he wouldn't have thought that it was important. I did it to try and find him; I was trying to see if there were any relations he would go to after Mary’s death. I contacted Jim Murphy and explained who I was and he told me he knew John Winchester and that he would pass on my contact details and get John to get in touch. John never did. As for our family history, I was just coming into my powers when he left and it was then that our parents told me what was happening, if he had been around he would have been told. I was also told how to control them, this gives me the ability to manage the pain when a vision strikes and also to call one when required.
As I was saying this I looked at Sam and in unison we both reached for our heads, I could tell from my experience what was affecting him. He hadn’t been shown how to manage the visions and the pain. I would need to sit down with him and show him the exercises my uncle had shown me to control the visions and manage the pain. As I was clearing all thoughts from my head to focus on the vision as I had been taught, I got a clear picture of Sam laid out on a bed in what come across as an old town from a western TV series and Dean sitting in a chair talking to his non moving brother in complete agony. He got up kicked a chair and left the house, got into the Impala and drove to the nearest crossroads where he summoned a demon and made a pact with him. The next thing I was back in the room with Sam, who was looking at his back and Dean came into the room and grabbed him into a hug. After this the vision broke and I was back at Bobby’s looking at my nephews wondering if this had already happened or did I need to stop this from happening. Then I remembered something that I had seen in the vision as Dean was leaving the town, it was a bell with an old oak tree on it. This was Cold Oak, North Dakota and I recalled the conversation when Sam had mentioned Cold Oak and what the demon had told him. This had already happened, why was I seeing something that had already happened and had Sam seen the same thing. Had he felt the pain his brother was in that forced him to the crossroads? Was the deal the reason for the tension between the two boys? Sam turned to me and said “Yes, it did” and he then turned to Dean and said “I get it now, I may not have got it before but I get it now, I get why you did what you did. I still don’t like it but I get it now.”
I looked at Sam and said “we need to talk some more, but I need to go and rest now. If you boys and Bobby don’t mind we will swing back tomorrow and we can talk some more.” Sam looked up worried, do the visions really take that much out of you when you control them, I said “No, being pregnant takes that much out me”. He replied you are definitely a Winchester, you’ve got the snark down completely”.
Will and I left Bobby’s with a plan to return the following day at 10am, Will would talk to Bobby and Dean about hunts they had been on and I could talk to Sam about controlling his visions. We also said that we would need to do some more research into old ‘Yellow Eyes’ as Dean referred to him and his links to Lilith if any.

This takes the view that the Winchester abilities are not demonic in nature and that the demon was trying to manipulate those with abilities to his own ends.
Will and I left Bobby’s with a plan to return the following day at 10am, Will would
talk to Bobby and Dean about hunts they had been on and I could talk to Sam about controlling his visions. We also said that we would need to do some more research into old ‘Yellow Eyes’ as Dean referred to him and his links to Lilith if any.
Chapter Ten – The lessons
When Will and I arrived at the salvage yard the following day, Bobby and Sam were sitting on the porch reading and drinking coffee and Dean was taking the opportunity to give his baby a good once over. We walked up to porch and greeted everyone whilst Bobby offered us a drink Sam went and checked with Dean if he wanted a drink, Dean told him a coffee would be great and that he it would be another hour before he was finished working on the car. Sam said that would be okay as Will and Bobby were going to catch up, and that he and I would be sitting down talking about family stuff and ways to manage his visions.
As the weather was so good, we all decided that we would take the opportunity to sit outside in the sunshine. Whilst Sam and I sat on one side of the porch, Will and Bobby made themselves comfortable on the other side. Bobby and Will were taking a trip down memory lane and discussing old hunts and looking through some of Bobby’s texts.
Sam and I sat in an awkward silence for a couple of minutes trying to work out how to approach what we both knew would be a difficult subject. Sam started to fidget in his seat so I reached over put my hands on top of his and said as soothingly as I could manage “it’s going to be alright, I know that this is scary but we will get through this together the way family does, and we are family”. Sam looked at me and replied “I know, it’s just that it’s only in the last two years that anyone has known about my visions and I thought that they were demonic and so as far as they are concerned I have not wanted to look any deeper.”
I looked him straight in the eyes and told him “It’s going to be alright, our powers are not based in good or evil, it’s what you do with them that make them that way and from what I know about your father and therefore you and your brother you would only use these powers for good. You have been hunting evil and from what I heard about Cold Oak, you chose not to kill Jake and lost your life instead. That’s definitely coming down on the side of good.”
Sam responded “I know, but the demon showed me something in Cold Oak and I am not totally sure what’s true anymore.” As Sam said this Dean stepped onto the porch, and said “what are you talking about Sam, when we spoke in Cold Oak you never said anything to me about any of this.” Sam looked sheepishly at his brother and said “I didn’t know how to tell you what he had shown me and then what he told me. After what Dad told you and the events in Minnesota I didn’t want to add to your stress and we already had other issues to deal with.” Dean said “this isn’t over but you need to talk to Toni and I need to wash up. Do either of you want anything whilst I’m in the house.” I had a tea, Sam went for a coffee and Dean went to check with Bobby and Will and disappeared into the house to clean up and get the drinks.
I looked at Sam and said “are you ready to start or do you want to clear this up with Dean first.” Sam replied “No it’s ok we should continue. I can speak to Dean later when you’ve gone.” “Ok, let’s get started then” We started talking about the family history and how I had been told about the Winchester gift by my father. That we came from a long line of powerful and exceptional people and that I could show him how to manage the pain that the visions bring and how I was able to tap into my visions on demand and how with some help he might be able to do the same thing. That ultimately the powers that we had were not good or evil only what we decided to do with them. How that at any one time across the world a percentage of the population possessed some kind of psychic ability. That the Winchesters seemed to have this focused in their bloodline but that this was not necessarily a bad thing.
I explained to Sam that as I came into my gifts I had been scared, and my Dad sent me to spend time with my Uncle Samson who also had the gift and that he could help me as my powers emerged. Uncle Samson or Son as he was referred to by the family told me how he had learnt to control his powers that his Uncle had taught him the same way he was teaching me and that I would be responsible for teaching John’s youngest child. I told Son about my dream and John’s reaction and how he had now disappeared. Son told me that “Don’t worry Toni, I’m sure he and the boys are fine and will be fine for many years to come.” Son and I started the lessons, they started with learning how to control the pain, and this was to not fight the visions when they hit but to go with it. Son didn’t have visions himself but he had learnt the same lessons for his telekinesis and to stop the pain associated with moving things. I learnt that if I allowed a vision to open up and didn’t fight it there was no pain and I was actually able to delve deeper into the vision and keep the vision open for longer. This meant that I could find out more information which would steer me in the direction where I would be able to help people.
I turned to Sam and said “are you sure that you are ready to learn what Son taught me, or do you want to take a break and go clear things up with Dean?” Sam said “No, I’m ready. Anything that will mean that I’m not in pain when a vision hits, I haven’t told Dean but the pain is getting unbearable and it is taking longer and longer to get over.” Right easy start, what do you feel when a vision is coming? He told me It’s like a really bad headache, the pain builds behind my right eye and slowly rolls backwards and across my head, could be compared to the start of a migraine. I said OK, do you have this pain at any other time or just when a vision is starting. “No” Sam said only when a vision is coming, “Great I said” and Sam looked at me with bewilderment, “That’s not quite how I meant it, but if this is unique identifier then we can set up ways of working with the trigger. When you feel a vision starting sit down breathe slowly in and out and clear your mind of any other thoughts, I know that’s easier said than done but it really works. As we were sitting there talking I could tell from the change in Sam’s demeanor that something was starting. I looked him squarely in the eyes and said remember what I told “Breathe”. Sam started breathing slowly and I held his hand and said “Clear your mind and let the vision come, don’t fight it”, close your eyes empty your mind, remember don’t fight what you are seeing.
As this was happening Dean came back with the drinks and as he approached Sam he could tell what was happening, he started to rush towards his brother. I got up and got between the boys, took hold of Dean and told him calmly everything is alright, he needs to breathe and clear his mind of all thoughts, if he hears you it will bring him back to the present and thoughts will rush in and the pain will start. Dean looked at me, not totally convinced and “I told him, this has been working for me for the past 20 years” he relented a little didn’t leave Sam’s side but didn’t open his mouth. Slowly Sam came out of his latest vision and looked between Dean and I, I asked him how he was feeling and he said “OK”, Dean turned to him and said “Tell me the truth, how are you really feeling, no lying, no hiding information from me because you think I can’t handle it or you think it will stress me out”. Sam turned back to him and said “I’m really OK, the information that Toni gave me totally helped, my head isn’t pounding as it usually does and I am much clearer on what I could see.” Both boys looked at me and smiled, Sam got up from where he was sitting and came and gave me a huge hug whilst Dean put down the mugs of drink and came up and took my hand in his and said “Thanks for that”.
Sam called Bobby and Will over and told everyone that we needed to go inside and he would tell us what he saw.

Sam called Bobby and Will over and told everyone that we needed to go inside and he would tell us what he saw.
Chapter Eleven – The Vision
We all walked into the house and took seats in the living room. Dean stood beside Sam looking very concerned and resting his hand on Sam’s shoulder. Sam looked at Dean and said “Everything is OK; there is less pain than normal. The lesson appeared to have worked. I’m sure with more time and lessons the pain will go away completely. So stop worrying about me.” Dean could tell from the look in Sam’s eyes that something was really up and said “It’s my job, I am never got stop worrying about you,” and to lighten the mood threw in “Bitch.” Sam replied in their normal banter “Jerk”.
Sam started looking around the room at each one of us in turn, I suppose you want to know why I called you all inside. As one we turned back to Sam and said “If you are ready to tell us”. Sam grabbed a six pack and a glass of juice from the fridge and handed them out and said “Ok then let’s start. He looked at Dean with concern in his eyes and said “I know who holds the contract and I think that I know where they are.” Dean looked at him with hope in his eyes; this suddenly disappeared as he realized that there had been a break in Sam’s voice as he said this. “What is it Sam, this is good news isn’t. If we know who holds the deal, then we can take them out and break the deal.” Sam took a deep breath looked at Dean, then at everyone in turn around the room ending with me. “Sam” I said “what is it, you need to tell us everything you saw so that we can work out what we need to do.” As Sam went to say something the breath he was holding caught in his throat, and his eyes started to fill with tears. I took his hands in mine and said “It’s going to be alright, you need to let us help you.”
Sam said in a low voice “If we go after this thing, then you all die, I saw it. One by one, you all die and I’m left alone with the twins. We don’t get to the thing until it’s too late for Dean and the hell hounds take him to hell and it’s all my fault.” At this Dean moved towards his brother took hold of his shoulders turned him to face and said “When will you get this into your head, this isn’t your fault. I knew what I was doing when I made the deal and I will never regret it.” Sam retorted “I know but if I had killed Jack when I had the chance he wouldn’t have been able to kill me and you wouldn’t have had to make the deal” Dean took a step back as Sam’s words hit him; he hadn’t realized that Sam had been thinking that. “Listen to me, you didn’t kill Jake until there was no choice and other people lives were in danger. It’s not in your nature to kill someone. You only took him out at the Devils Trap when he was no longer human and had threatened Ellen after all, and then proceeded to let Hell lose. I don’t blame you for being who you are, who do you think kept me in check all this time. Why do you think that the demons try and keep us apart we are two sides of the same coin. The Yin and Yang so to speak.” At this point he clipped the back of Sam’s head and said “Now look what you made me do, total chick flick moment and you know I don’t do chick flick moments” A small laugh left Sam at this and the tension that had been building in the room dissipated.
“Right then” Bobby pitched in “Who holds Dean’s contract and what did you see?” Sam took a long swig from his bottle of beer and started to tell us everything he had seen. “Bobby, Dean and I are camped out in a cabin somewhere in the woods. Dean is reading and Bobby tells us he has found a way to find Lilith.” At the mention of Lilith’s name I felt the blood drain from my face, Will grasped my hands and told me “It’s going to be alright Toni. We always knew that she might be back and that we may need to deal with her. Between the four of us we will make sure that she doesn’t get her hands on the twins.” I looked Will square in the eyes and said “You mean five of us don’t you.” Will said “No, I said four and meant four, you and the twins are sitting this one out. I will not let you put yourself in danger.” “You won’t let me! I am old enough to make those decisions for myself. These are my children too and if I need to do something to keep them away from her then I will.”
As Will and I were having our heated conversation, Dean was tensing up and mumbling under his breath “What have I done? What have I brought down on the Winchesters?” I could hear the words clearly in my head, stood up and walked towards him, clasped his hands in mine looked him straight in the eyes and told him “You did the only thing that you could do with the information that you had at the time, you saved your brother. You didn’t bring anything down on the Winchesters that wasn’t already after us. Our family has always been a target, I just don't know why. What we have to do now is work out how to get you out of this deal and take down Lilith.”
We turned back to Sam apologized for the interruption and asked him to continue what he could remember from his vision. Bobby starts to scry for Lilith and the pointer of the device comes to rest on top of the name of a town. I can’t see the name of the town. Dean starts to say that we aren’t going to go after Lilith as we have no proof that she holds the contract. The vision then jumps to the basement and me calling Ruby and Dean and Ruby getting into a fight and he grabs her knife from her. Then we are outside houses in a suburb, Bobby drops up a rosary into the sprinkler system and sets it off. This holds back groups of what I can only assume are demons as they start screaming when the water hits them. Dean, Ruby and I enter one of the houses and try to find Lilith, we walked through the house and found the residents and placed them in the basement. We discovered that the daughter of the family was no longer being possessed by Lilith but we did not know where she had gone. As we wandered around the house, the clock started to strike midnight and Dean saw the hell hounds. We moved into the dining room blocked the entrances with goofer dust to keep the hell hounds at bay. Too late Dean realizes that we in the room with Lilith and not Ruby, whilst she has me pinned to the wall she opens the doors and lets the hell hounds in and they tear Dean to pieces and I am forced to watch. As Sam finishes his vision, he has tears streaming down his face and Dean fully understood why he had appeared so shocked after the vision had ended. He knew what it felt like to watch your brother die and he walked up to Sam looked him square in the eyes and said “We are going to make sure that is doesn't happen.”
I turned to Sam and said “I know that this is tough but can you recall where this happened, the town on the map?” Sam replied “I can’t see it clearly enough to tell which town she is in, I wish that I could remember as it mean that maybe I could save everyone and myself.” I said “OK, let’s take this slowly and I’ll walk you through the vision and we can see if we can jump back into it before everything hit the fan. Sam we need to go sit outside on the porch away from everyone and where it is quiet, Sam and I walked outside leaving Bobby, Dean and Will instead reeling from the information that had been landed on their laps.
OK Sam I said let’s get started, close your eyes and breath slowly in and out. I need you to put your feelings of guilty to one side for the moment and focus on the scrying device that Bobby is using. Can you see it? Sam nodded and said “I can see it, it’s moving backwards and forwards over the map.” Focus on the top right hand corner of the map, is it a map of the whole US or just a section of the US. Sam replied “It’s the whole US.” Great, Sam whereabouts on the map is the scrying device. “It’s in the middle of the map”
A couple of more questions and we should be able to find the location. “We are in the middle of the US, are we in the north or south of the mid part of the US.”It’s the north”. Can you see any major land marks like lakes, mountains, or rivers? “I can see a Lake, it looks like Lake Michigan” That’s great Sam; it means that we need to focus on Indiana or Illinois.
Do you think that as it is narrowed down to two states that you can actually focus in on where she is? “I should be able to” Sam replied. Sam started to breathe in and out slowly following the lesson that I had shown him earlier in the day. As he was doing this I noticed the expression on his face was changing from one of peace to one of pain I reached out to him, laid my hand on his arm and said “Sam you need to stop pushing, let the information come of its own accord.” Sam replied that he would try, it was just important that he find Lilith as so much was hanging on him tracking her down. I said “I know Sam but pushing yourself is not going to make the answer appear and it will only hurt you.” Sam let go and started to breath more slowly and his expression relaxed and I could tell that something was happening, all of a sudden he jumped up and rushed inside and I followed along behind him.
Whilst Sam and I had been working on the porch, inside Bobby had declared “its research time. We need to find out who this Lilith is and why she is after the Winchester clan. Dean take Binsfield Classification of Demons and see what that says, Will take the net and I’ll take the Key of Solomon.”
As everyone had been deep in thought researching, Sam bursting through the door had disrupted everyone. Sam exclaimed “I know where she is, or where she is going to be. She’s in New Harmony, Indiana. We can go stop the bitch before she hurts anyone in our family or in that little girls family” As Sam attempted to leave Bobby caught hold of him and said we need to know who and what we are up against before we go after her. Dean, Will and I have been researching and we can discuss what we have found and develop our battle plan.

Sorry it's been a while, hope you enjoy.
Bobby caught hold of Sam as he attempted to leave and said we need to know who and what we are up against before we go after her. Dean, Will and I have been researching and we can discuss what we have found and develop our battle plan.
Chapter Twelve – The Aftermath
With his hand still on Sam’s arm Bobby said “Sam you need to calm down, rushing off half cocked is only going to get you hurt. Dean, Will and I have been researching Lilith and we need to discuss what we have found out and why she is after the Winchesters.” Sam visibly relaxed and said “I know we do, it’s just that I can’t let what I saw come true. We need to stop her before she takes Dean to hell and she and her demons hurt all those people in New Harmony.” As Sam finished his statement Dean had reached his brother and turned him so that they were looking at each other and said “We will Sammy, but we need to go in smart or everyone is likely to get hurt in the process.”
Whilst Bobby and the boys were having this discussion, I had moved into the living room and sat on the sofa along with Will “I need you to tell me that it will be alright, that the twins will be safe, and that Lilith is not going to take them and in the process kill you.” Will looked me in the eyes rested his hands on my stomach over the top of the babies and said in his calming voice “Everything is going to be fine, no-one is going to get a hand on anyone in our family that includes Dean and Sam. I won’t let them.” I leaned in and kissed him forgetting where we were until I we were brought back to the present by heavy coughing noises behind us. I turned around to see Dean and Sam looking a little awkward, after all the last thing a family members wants to see is a relative kissing especially if it is one they have only just met.
We all decided that as it was getting late in the day we would get something to eat and discuss Sam’s vision and what Bobby, Will and Dean had found out about Lilith and her possible reasons for wanting Dean’s soul, Sam and the twins over the meal. We all worked together to get the meal ready, Will and I made the salad and fries, Dean and Bobby grilled the steaks on the barbecue and Sam sorted the drinks. We went outside to the porch and ate our meals in relative quiet knowing that the upcoming conversation was going to be tense and no-one was really looking forward to it. We finished the meal, and turned to the matter at hand, Lilith and what her plan was and how we could stop her and save Dean and everyone else in the process.
Dean started “Descriptions of Lilith appear in Iranian, Babylonian, Mexican, Greek, Arab, English, German, Oriental and Native American legends, although the most of the legend originates from Jewish lore.” Bobby took up from there “In Jewish lore Lilith was the first wife of Adam who left the Garden of Eden when she would not be subservient to Adam. Adam asked God to bring her back to him and he sent 3 angels after her. Whilst she was away she become a lover with demons and gave birth to 100 children a day. When the angels came to take her back she refused to go and her children were taken away from her. That following the killing of her children Lilith became attracted to children and launched a reign of terror against women in childbirth and new born infants. Lore states that to protect the children against Lilith children were given amulets bearing the names of the angels sent to bring her back to Adam. ” Will continued “In medieval Europe she is the wife, concubine or grandmother of Satan. There is no lore on how to kill Lilith, but as she is a demon the Colt is our best bet along with ‘Rituale Romanum’”
“OK” Sam said “now we know who she is. I think we can understand why she wants the twins. She is trying to replace her missing children. Do we know what she wants Dean and” Before Sam had a chance to finish his thoughts, I yelled “They aren’t her children, they are my children and she can’t have them.” I could feel myself getting angrier at the idea of this thing taking my children for hers and killing my family. The cup in my hand started to tremble and the drink which had cooled down a while ago started to bubble up as though it was boiling again. I felt an urgent need to get away from everyone as it felt that I couldn’t breathe and that the walls were moving in although we were outside. I stood up and as I did so there was this incredible pain in my side, I screamed and collapsed as I was going down I noticed out of the corner of my eye that Will was going down as well. As we went down, Bobby raced to Will’s side, Sam and Dean came rushing to me before I tipped off the porch. They moved us back to the chairs on the porch and Dean ran into the house to get two glasses of water. When he returned Will was by my side and the colour was slowly returning to his face. Dean handed him one of the glasses of water which he drank and passed the empty glass back to Dean, he took the full glass and handed it to me. As I slowly sipped the water, Will moved himself into the seat next to me and placed his hand over my bump and leaned my head against his shoulder and said “It’s OK, nothing is going to get the babies I won’t let it” as he said this I felt the twins moving around and the pain in my side subsiding slightly but not going away completely.
“OK” I said “We know where she is and when she is going to be there, what do you say we go stop the bitch before she hurts anyone”. Will looked me square in the eye and said “You aren’t going anywhere; I am not risking you and the kids. We are going to take you back home, I want you near your obstetrician you are getting closer, and it’s only 8 weeks now before the babies are due. Bobby, Dean and Sam can head to New Harmony to start things off while I take you home and set up the nursery, I’ll catch them up in a couple of days once I know that you and the twins are safe.” I started to respond and another voice from across the room pitched in “Toni, I know you saw what I saw. You have so much to teach me about my gifts and about my Dad, I need you to be safe.” At that Sam glanced at his brother and rephrased the last sentiment “We need you to be safe. You are family and that something that we have had very little of and we have missed so much.” As Sam finished I launched in before Bobby could interrupt as well, “I know you all want to keep me safe, but I need to be there. I need to be a part of keeping my children safe and if the last few days have shown me anything it is that I am slowly becoming more powerful and I may be needed. I just need to work out what is causing the surges and how I can control them otherwise I could be a danger to the obstetrician and anyone else in the hospital, the best place for me to learn how is somewhere I can do very little damage to anything or anyone.” I glimpsed at Bobby and said “Sorry Bobby, but if I continue blowing things up when I get upset a salvage yard is as good a place as any.” Bobby laughed and said “I agree with you. You need to come and you need to learn how to use your new found gifts.” I was shocked as I had expected Bobby to side with Will, Dean and Sam and not me.
Will, Dean and Sam all turned to Bobby and in unison said “You cannot be serious, we are not taking Toni with us” the four of them continued the discussion and as it went on it got more and more heated. As I sat there I could feel a pain in my head growing and suddenly car windscreens started to blow out one after another across the scrap yard, the only cars to remain safe were Bobby’s truck, Dean’s Impala, my SUV and the car that Dean had been working on for Sam. After the last windscreen went, Bobby turned to Will, Dean and Sam and said “That’s why Toni needs to come, after she has learnt how to control her new gift it will be powerful weapon against Lilith, and one that she may not know about and will therefore give us an element of surprise.” Will and the boys finally relented and said “OK, we will all go to New Harmony. How long do we have before Lilith gets there and how long does Toni have to control her gifts and teach Sam more about his gifts.” Sam answered “Lilith took Dean to hell on May 2. This gives us just under 8 weeks.” When Sam finished, I said “I am so sorry Sam there is no way we will let Dean go anywhere and especially not on that date.” Will and Bobby looked at me quizzically and Dean said “I didn’t appreciate it. Why didn’t it register what the day was when I brought you back? Oh god, what have I done.” Will and Bobby were still looking between the three of us wondering who was going to tell them what was going on. As Dean had moved to Sam and was talking to him in a huddle, I turned to Will and Bobby and said “May 2 is Sam’s birthday. Dean is due to die on his birthday.”
As I finished telling Will and Bobby the latest revelation, Sam turned to me and said “You’ve got 8 weeks left, the babies are due on May 2 aren’t they?” I looked from Will to Sam and told him “Yes, they are. It would be a great Birthday present.” Sam looked at me, and asked “Is your birthday May 2?” Before I had the chance to answer him, Will jumped in and said “No, it’s mine. Toni’s birthday is in February.” and in an attempt to lighten the mood threw in “I’m her toy boy.” I reached over and lightly thumped his arm and told Dean and Sam “He’s kidding, I’m only 3 months older than him.” Bobby, Dean and Sam all started to laugh at this and the tension was gone. The pain in my side had subsided completely and the babies were silent again. As we had reached the decision on what we were up against and who would be going, Will and I decided to return to the hotel for the night and agreed that we would be back the following day to come up with a game plan. Dean, Sam and Bobby escorted us back to the SUV and as we were closing the doors to the van Dean and Sam said in unison “We’ll see you tomorrow, we’ve got work to do!”
