Word Count: Around 1400.
Three years ago, you met a man named Sam Winchester. He rolled through town on business with his brother in their Impala, staying for only a few days. You met him in the local library and shamelessly flirted for a while, Sam eventually asking you out. You went out to a cheap dinner that same night, the talking and laughter not faltering for a minute. For the first time in your life, you felt like you had met someone really special. As you were leaving the restaurant, however, that’s when things got weird. A woman had attacked you and Sam, and he had somehow known exactly how to fight her off. He took you away to the back alley of the street, making sure you were safe. Turns out, the woman had been a demon. Straight from hell, black eyes and everything. He was a ‘hunter’, he told you, and explained the existence of creatures lurking in the dark. Find your soulmate and he turns out to kill monsters for a living. Whadda ya know?
You spent the rest of that evening with Sam back in your apartment, talking into the early hours of the morning. The conversation topic was ever changing, from books, to movies, to life experiences, even preferences in pasta sauce. Hell, you even lent him a copy of ‘The Stranger Beside Me.’ You found yourself wondering how such a kind-hearted, sweet, intelligent and all around incredible guy was interested in you. You had lounged on your apartment couch for hours, staring into his eyes and feeling like the luckiest person in the world.
All that came crashing down when the next day rolled around. Sam and his brother Dean had to leave town. Your heart broke to watch him drive away, and it pained you to wish him well and send him off with a kiss. You spend the next three years alone, Sam crossing your mind constantly. Your biggest regret was not leaving town with him, and you vowed that if you ever saw him again, you’d not make the same mistake. The only thing keeping you in this town was your job, and you’d never been happy with it anyway. You couldn’t help but wonder if you wandered through his thoughts like he did yours. If not, you at least wanted the freakin book back.
