Weird wacky cryptid roadtrip AU to good home
Jesse’s just a normal human hanging out with all these strange beasties. He’s got a knack for noticing strange things (turning Deadeye into the Sight), but that’s about it. Jesse ran into Gabe because of some sort of hazing ritual–the other ranch hands stick you out in the fields next to a goat and say, “The chupacabra’ll eat either you or the goat, buddy,” and then run around in the dark to scare the newbie.
Except this time the chupacabra did show up, and Jesse had a half-hysterical but very polite ramble at it while it ate the goat and eyed him the entire time. At the end of it, the chupacabra licks its chops and says, “you’re just a kid, aren’t you?"and for a split second Jesse forgets he’s terrified and yelps very indignantly, "I AM SEVENTEEN!”
That’s how Jesse ends up with a chupacabra following him around in the fields and chatting with him to while away the day.
