“Or you can just move into my room.” I smiled up at Sam, whose hair had fallen into his face as he picked up one of my boxes.
“You’re already half moved in, Y/N.” He pressed his lips to my forehead before taking the box down the hall.
Sam and I had been together for six months now. I had always been worried that things might get a little weird, since we already lived together, but we had decided to keep our separate rooms until now, only staying in each other’s rooms a few nights a week. My relationship with Sam was everything I had ever wanted and more, nothing had changed except for the fact that I could act on wanting to lean over and kiss him, and hug him from behind when he was reading or on his laptop, and I could tell him that I loved him and have him know what I really meant.
I picked up my pillows off of my bed and carried them over into Sam’s room. “Sammy, I might need help, these are so heavy.” I pouted jokingly at him. He smiled walking over to me, taking the pillows from my arms.
“I’ve gotcha.” He grinned, wrapping his other arm around my waist, pulling me closer to him.
“My hero, how will I ever repay you?”
“You can repay me by not being so damn disgusting and cutesy, and turning my brother back into a girly man he was.” Dean said, walking past the open door.
“Don’t mind him.” Sam leaned down, and pressed his mouth to mine. This kiss sent shivers down my spine, all of the nerves in my body now on end.
“YOU TWO NEED TO GET OUT HERE.” Dean shouted from the library.
Sam tossed my pillows onto his bed and grabbed me by the hand, dragging me out into the hallway behind him. When we got the library, Dean had Sammy’s laptop open, and had a video playing with the volume turned all of the way up.
*This is the third body that we’ve found in the last week, the skin completely missing. It’s been sent to the lab, like the other two, for the police to identify.*
“What is that?” I asked, stepping forward to get a better look at the screen.
“Three bodies found completely skinless in Oregon in less than a week. I don’t know about you guys, but this sounds like something up our alley.”
I looked from the computer, to Dean, then to Sam. “I have never heard of anything that does this.”
“Well, you guys can start the research, and I’m going to do some shopping. You guys want anything?” Dean asked, picking his car keys up off of the table.
“Coffee, two cranberry redbulls, and one of those caffeine chocolate bars with the cute little owl on it.” Sam looked at me, eyebrow cocked.
“Make that two redbulls and a few regular chocolate bars, I’ll cook some real food.” He told Dean. I glared at him playfully and pouted. He made his way over to me, wrapping his long arms around my body. “I don’t want you to overdose on the caffeine.” Sam pressed his lips to my forehead before disappearing towards the kitchen.
I walked around the library, pulling books off of the shelves, and curled up in front of my laptop. After flipping open a notepad, I got started on my research.
After what seemed like hours of the three of us sitting in silence, one of us occasionally making runs to the kitchen for refills on coffee, beer, or snacks, Dean’s voice finally broke the silence. “What time is it?” He asked, standing to stretch his legs.
“3:49.” I answered, not breaking eye contact with the screen. I had somehow found my way to some Japanese monster database and things were getting very interesting.
“Already? How long have we been working on this?”
“15 hours, since you’re up would you mind bringing me more coffee?” Dean grabbed Sam’s cup and walked across the library.
“I think I found something.” I said aloud, my eyes still scanning over the article.
“What is it?” Sam bolted up from his chair to stand behind me, reading the article over my shoulder.
“She’s called a Nikusui. She’s a Japanese monster that looks like a young girl, and she eats human flesh.”
“Well that’s disgusting.” Dean said, as he reentered the room. “How do we gank this bitch?”
“It says that we have to show her the bones of one of her victims, and she turns to dust.” Sam read out loud.
“That’s going to be difficult, and gross.” I said shutting my laptop.
“We’ll figure it out on the way, in the meantime, we all need to get some shut eye. We roll out in about four and a half hours.” Dean ordered, before turning and heading to his room.
Sam lifted me in his strong arms, and carried me to his, now our, bedroom. Very gently, he set me down on the bed, walked over to his closet, and tossed one of his plane grey t-shits at me. He stripped down to his boxers, while I removed all of my clothing except my panties, and slide his large shirt over my head. Sam shut off the lights and got into the bed with me, pulling the covers over us, and me closer to him.
“Try and get some sleep Y/N, you’ve worked very hard today.” He placed a light kiss on my forehead.
In return, I pressed my mouth fully against his, put my head on his shoulder, and said, “Goodnight Sam, I love you.”
“I love you.” I closed my eyes, not realizing how sleepy I actually was until this moment, and sank into the darkness.
“This is seriously gross,” I peered over at the skinless body laying out on the silver table. “In all of my time, I have never had to remove bones from a body.”
“Good thing you’re not, Sammy is, now get your butt back over to that door and keep watch.”
I rolled my eyes at Dean and walked back over to the door, looking down the hallway to make sure that the coast stayed clear. After what seemed like far too long, the boys came out with a bag full of bones.
“Okay, now let’s find this freaky bitch and end this.”
“Maybe you shouldn’t get so close to her Dean, she might look like one of the girls from your porn stash.” I laughed.
“She does have a point.” Sam said, a smile on his lips.
“Ha ha, very funny guys.” He hitched the bag up onto his shoulder and kept walking, Sam and I following suit.
We didn’t know exactly where she was going to hit, so we had just been circling where she had attacked before. It’d felt like we’d been driving around for hours, before out of the corner of my eye, I saw something. “Dean, stop.” I nearly yelled, pointing out of the window on Sam’s side.
There was a girl walking around, aimlessly it seemed. She was hunched over, her dark hair falling into her face, slowing trudging forward.
“So what’s the plan? It’d seem a bit easy to just walk over there and flash her with the bones.” I asked, looking back and forth between the boys.
“Not going to be so easy,” Sam said, unbuckling himself, “Looks like she’s going to be a little distracted.” Sam bolted from the car, I looked at what he was running towards. The Nikusui was gaining pace, towards a couple that was walking down the street, holding hands, and looking up at the sky.
“Come on.” Dean jumped out of the car next, I had to fight with the seat to get out. “SAM, STOP!” He grabbed the bag of bones, and I reached for the metal pipe in the back seat and we both shot after Sammy, who was running and screaming towards the monster, and the couple who were looking at him, and the monster, and scared frozen.
I almost couldn’t believe what had happened next. The Nikusui jumped Sam, who was completely weaponless, and tackled him to the ground. I pushed harder as I ran towards them, Dean now behind me, Sam choking the monster.
I smashed the pipe into her head, knocking her off of Sam, then grabbed a fist full of her hair, and shoved her head towards Dean. “Do it, show them to her.”
He opened the bag and spilled the bones onto the ground in front of her. She screamed and started to turn to ash, I could feel her hair crumbling in my hand. Sam got up off of the ground and came to wrap his arms around me, pulling me to him tightly.
“Okay, okay, that’s enough. Let’s get home.” Dean said, tossing the bag onto the ground, and making his way back to the car. I pressed my mouth to Sam’s before grabbing his hand and following his brother.
“This is the last one.” Sam walked into the room with my last box, kicking the door shut behind him, and placing it on the floor in the corner.
“Thank you.” I smiled up at him. I was sitting cross legged on the bed, fresh out of the shower after the long drive, only in underwear and a baggy t-shirt. Sam crossed over to the bed and stretched across it, pulling me into him, wrapping his arms around me.
“So this is real, huh?” He asked, looking down at me.
I pinched him lightly, and then kissed his jaw. “Yes, very real.”
“And to think, a little over six months ago we weren’t even together. I’m so happy that you’re here with me.” Sam brushed his fingers across my cheeks.
“Six months can be a long time for people like us.” Time was never guaranteed for hunters, especially the Winchesters and anyone close to them.
“It really is. You know, with us time isn’t promised, and we don’t know if we’re going to make it past tomorrow, but whether I don’t make it past next month, or I live for the next fifty years, I want to be able to say that I got to spend every minute from here until the end, knowing that you were mine.” He was staring into my eyes, his face serious.
“I’ll always be yours, Sammy, always have been.” I tried to reassure him.
“I know how dangerous it is, but, it can’t be any worse than what we’ve got going for us now. Y/N, will you marry me?”
My pulse quickened in my veins as my heartbeat sped up, my entire body tingled. I pulled his mouth to mine, kissing him hard. “Yes, Sammy. Yes, yes.” I said in between kisses.
