The door slammed shut, soon followed by thumps of feet and frustrated sighs.
“You what?!” John’s voice echoed through the entryway.
“I…said…yes.” Sam replied, saying each word slowly.
“You said yes? To a guy you barely know.”
“To a guy you barely know. I sat and talked to him all lunch hour.”
“So? That doesn’t mean you know him.”
“John, drop it.” Sam said.
“I’m not gonna drop it, Sam! You don’t know him and you’re going to the Fall Festival with him?”
“Yeah, I am. If you a problem with it, deal.”
“No. I don’t trust him.”
“Why not?” Sam scoffed.
“Because I hang around guys like him and I know what they’re looking for. A pretty girl and a good night.”
“Oh my god, John!” She yelled. “Matt isn’t like that!”
“You don’t know that he isn’t!” John yelled back at his twin.
“You don’t know that he is!”
“HEY!” Dean’s voice sudden came. Both twins’ heads whipped around and looked at him.
Every time Dean looked at them, he was appalled by how much the fraternal twins looked alike. Same blonde hair and bright blue eyes, the same bone structure in their face. Despite the obvious gender difference, and the fact that John stood about three inches taller than his sister, there was no doubt Samantha and John Winchester were twins. And, though Sam wouldn’t admit it, there was no mistaking that they were their mother’s children.
“What the hell are you two arguing about?” Dean asked them.
“This random guy asked her to the dance and she said yes.” John said, returning his gaze to his sister accusingly.
“He’s not a random guy.” She shot back. “He’s in my math class and we talked all hour and at lunch and he asked me. What the hell is wrong with that?”
“Nothing. But you don’t know him!” John said.
“By the time the dance comes around, I will!” With that, Sam walked from the room and up the stairs. When he heard her door slam, John bowed his head and sighed.
“Why do you do that?” Dean asked. John’s head shot up and his jaw all but hit the floor.
“Me?!” He asked. “She’s the one who -.”
“Exactly.” Dean said, interrupting him because he knew what was coming. “You know she’s a stubborn ass so why do you push her?”
“I was trying to look out for her.”
“John, when has she ever let you look out for her when she knew about it?”
John rolled his eyes. Sam wasn’t the type of girl who needed protection. Well, not the kind she knew about anyway. Being the oldest, even if it was only by two minutes, John was as protective an older brother as he could be.
“It’s just…Dad, I don’t trust him. He’s new, for one. Never date the new guys. God knows what the hell their track record is. He could’ve been expelled. He could do drugs or…worse. C’mon, do you really want her dating someone like that?”
“Or he could be perfectly harmless and like her.” Dean said. He clapped his son on the shoulders and shook him slightly. “Gotta start lookin’ on the good side of people, dude.”
“If this guy has a good side. He could be a player, dad.”
“Hey.” Dean said warningly. “Don’t bash the players. I used to be one.” He looked John in the eye and smirked and then pushed him once John smirked back. His son had a smirk that could actually compete with his own. “Go do your homework.”
“Yeah, yeah.” John said as he trudged up the stairs to his room. Dean smiled after him thinking how much John reminded him of himself at that age. Reluctant and protective. Dani’s arms suddenly around his waist from behind brought him from his thoughts.
“Hey, babe.” He said, interlocking his fingers with hers.
“Did they have a bad day?” She asked.
“Sam was asked out and said yes and John doesn’t trust him.” Dean shortly explained.
Dani sighed. It was the usual drama between the two of them. Sam thought John was being overly protective and John thought Sam was being overly…well, let’s just say she had had more boyfriends in the past three years than Dani had had her whole life.
“So,” Dean said, turning around in her arms and putting his own around her neck. “What’s planned for this weekend?”
“I, um…” She hesitated. “I think I’m gonna see…Kali.”
Dean was stunned. Dani hadn’t heard from or seen her twin sister in sixteen years and he could only imagine why she would now.
"Are you gonna ask her about the…?” He trailed off.
“Yeah.” She said quietly. “Seems to be my only chance, doesn’t it?”
Dean didn’t answer. He didn’t want to think about Dani’s chances. He pulled her into a tight hug and laid his chin on the top of her head and sighed.
“Yeah.” He finally whispered. He forced the tears back and kissed the top of her head.
The next morning, Dani watched him sleep for a moment. Dean hadn’t changed a bit in sixteen years. He was still cocky and stubborn and his smile still made her go weak at the knees. He really didn’t look like he was almost fifty, but he was. Not if you asked him, however. He said it was forty-nine going on thirty.
She looked at the picture next to the bed. It had been their family trip to the Grand Canyon three years ago. Sam and Laurie hadn’t changed much either. Sam, still taller than the rest of them with his big brown eyes and wavy, messy brown hair, was smiling as big and bright as he had the day she met him. Laurie, still blonde and innocent looking, was standing next to Dani. You’d never know beneath the sweet shell she was a badass hunter nowadays.
Settled between the four adults, were the four kids. Well, ‘kids’ wasn’t the right word. ‘Adults’ was more like it. Little Dean wasn’t so little anymore. Dean, now twenty-one took after his father is almost every way. He was tall just like Sam and he had the same eyes and hair as well. Though, Dean kept his hair short and spiky. He had gone to Stanford on a scholarship to be a doctor. Melissa, eighteen, was going to UCLA on a tuition waver from passing her standardized tests in high school. She was studying to be a journalist, but her passion for writing had moved past that to creative writing as well.
After reminiscing, Dani turned back to Dean and woke him up with soft kisses on his cheeks and his lips. He smiled at her with his eyes still closed and pulled her close to him and kissed her deeply. He didn’t know how many more times he would be able to do that.
“I’m getting ready to go.” She whispered between kisses.
“Go where?” He asked, opening his eyes and pulling away.
“Kali’s.” She said. She saw his facial expression change into the depressed, saddened look she had seen so often since they found out. She could never respond to that look, so she kissed him again and said she’d be back soon before leaving the room.
“Dani.” Kali said quietly. She leaned down and put her hand on her sister’s cheek and forced her head towards her body. “Honey, wake up.” She said softly. All anger and all frustration was gone and it had been replaced by anger towards herself and guilt. This had been her fault, she was sure of it. “Dani.” She said, this time louder.
She stood up straight and looked towards the other driver and pointed at him.
“Call 911!” She yelled at him.
“Already done!” He said back. He ran over, apparently relieved Kali wasn’t going to kick his ass. “Do you need help?” He asked.
“Do you have a knife? Like a pocket knife?” She asked. He reached into his pocket and pulled out his keys and handed them to her after opening the knife on the keychain. “Thanks.” She said, taking it and beginning to saw on the seatbelt.
“She…she looks like you.” He said uncertainly.
“She’s my twin sister.” Kali explained.
She had managed to cut through the belt when she finally heard the sirens blaring in the distance. She didn’t dare move Dani in case there was something broken but she cleaned the blood away as best she could.
After a few minutes, she was shooed away by the paramedics so they could get her out and once they had Dani on a stretcher, Kali climbed into the ambulance with Dani.
She called Jason once they were at the hospital and told him what happened and he told her he and Alex were leaving the DMV. He said he would get Kali’s car and meet her at the hospital.
Then she called Dean.
Two hours after Dani left, Dean got the phone call.
“Dean?” Kali asked.
“K-Kali?” He said, recognizing the voice.
“Y-yeah.” She said. Her voice was breaking up from her tears.
“Honey, what’s wrong?” He asked concerned.
“Dani was in a car accident.” She said, finally breaking down as the realization hit her.
Dean stopped breathing. Dani was in a car crash? No. No, that wasn’t possible. She was safe at Kali’s.
“W-what?” He asked.
“She was leaving my house and she got into a really bad car accident.” She explained.
“W-where are you?” Dean asked, eyes welling up with tears. “Are you with her?”
“Um, no, I’m at Burbank Memorial. They took her back.”
“Is she ok?”
“I-I don’t know. They haven’t told me anything yet. But, Dean…I-I don’t think she is.”
“Um, alright.” He said, trying to calm himself down. “J-just hang tight, ok? I’ll be there soon.” And then he hung up. After panicking for a moment Dean called Sam. He needed his brother to keep him from falling apart.
“Kali!” Jason’s voice came from the main door as Kali hung up the phone. She looked up and saw him and Alex running towards her and she stood up and met them halfway. Jason immediately took her in his arms and she began to sob into his shoulder. “Shh…it’s ok.” He said into her ear. “It’s ok, she’ll be alright.”
“Dad -?” Alex started but once her father shook his head she quieted.
“I d-don’t think she’s gonna be ok.” Kali said, pulling away. Jason shook his head and ran his fingers through her hair.
“Don’t say that. Be strong for her, Kali.” He said. He kissed her forehead and then ushered her and their daughter to the waiting area. Keeping an arm around Kali, they sat down and she leaned her head onto his shoulder.
It was twenty minutes later when Dean showed up, Sam, Laurie, and four very much grown up children behind them.
“Dean.” Kali said, seeing them. She stood up and Dean hugged her as soon as they were close enough.
“Have you heard anything?” He asked.
“No.” She replied as they pulled away. “They’ve haven’t come out yet.”
“Well, how bad was it?”
“Hit on the passenger’s side. The car is totaled, Dean. She was unconscious when I got there.”
Dean nodded and held back tears at the thought that the time Dani had left before the accident was even less now.
“How bad did she look when you got there?” Sam piped up. Kali looked over at him and shook her head.
“Um, some cuts and bruises on her face and arms.” She said. Sam nodded and rubbed Dean’s back to reassure him Dani would be fine.
“Well, we got some guys here who wanna see you.” Sam said, smiling, trying to make the scene less morbid.
“Aunt Kali?” A deep voice said behind him. A tall man, vaguely familiar, stepped out behind him.
“Dean?” Kali asked. Dean walked up to her and hugged her like he had seen her last week. “Oh my god.” She said into his shoulder. They pulled away and she looked him up and down and looked at Sam. “Well, how the hell are we gonna tell them apart now. We can’t call him ‘little’ anymore.” She joked.
“That’s the curse of being named after my uncle.” Dean said.
“Hey, ‘Dean’s an awesome name.” Dean said defensively.
“Yeah, you weren’t named after someone else.” His nephew replied. The two glared at each other for a second and then cracked up. Apparently the ‘being named after your uncle’ thing was a very common argument between them.
“And, no, that’ can’t be…Melissa?” Kali asked, noticing the beautiful brunette.
“Aunt Kali.” She said, hugging her aunt.
“You are so beautiful.” Kali said once they had pulled away. “Oh my god.” She said. Melissa laughed and then went with her brother to say hi to Jason. Kali turned to the girl and the boy standing behind Dean with Laurie. “No.”
“Yep.” Dean said.
“They cannot be the adorable twin babies that I held.” Kali said. Dean nodded and she walked up to John and hugged him. Then she hugged Sam and then looked at Dean. “They’re all grown up.” She said.
“Yeah. Dean takes after Sam. He’s goin’ to Stanford on a scholarship for his master’s and Mel is at UCLA. Sam and John are graduating this year.”
Kali nodded and pointed to Alex.
“My baby girl.” She said. Dean smiled and wrapped an arm around Kali’s shoulders.
“She’s beautiful.” He said. “Looks like Jason.”
“Yup. Spittin’ image.” She said.
“Winchester!” A voice roared through the room. The entire family whipped around and Dean and Kali ran towards the doctor.
“How is she?” Dean immediately asked.
“Husband. How is she?”
“She’s still unconscious but she’s stable.” The doctor said. Kali and Dean both exhaled the breath neither knew they were holding. “She has a broken rib and her right arm is broken in several places but other than that, some pretty deep cuts, that should heal fine, and some bruises. She has a pretty large concussion from where she hit the window and a smaller concussion where her head hit the steering wheel. She’s very lucky. Had the driver hit her on her side, she’d be dead.”
Lucky? She was lucky
? It didn’t seem like luck to Dean. Dani was still in the hospital.
“Can we see her?” Kali asked. The doctor thought about it and then eyed the family.
“Alright, but be quiet. We’re not allowed to let in more than three people but I’ll make an exception.”
“Thank you.” Dean said. He turned and motioned to the others to follow them and they did.
The doctor led them down the pasty white corridor, through a blue double door and down another hallway lined with doors into other rooms. They reached room 3178 and the doctor pointed to it. They all filed into the room and Samantha, who was the last one in, closed the door behind them.
Dean gasped when he saw Dani on the bed. He walked up to the bed and sat down in the chair by it and took her hand.
“It’s ok, babe. We’re here.” He whispered to her. He kissed her hand softly and rubbed his thumb over the spot.
