Supernatural AU: Episode 2 - Phantom Traveler
They’d spoken to all but one survivor – flight attendant Amanda Walker. And she was returning to work tonight. Bravo, Bobbie thought to herself. You wouldn’t catch her on a plane again if she were her, especially after just a week. Her plane was going to go down tonight. They needed to move fast.
Dean pressed the gas pedal of the Impala into the floor, racing down the highway in an attempt to get in touch with Amanda Walker before she got on the plane. While Dean drove, Bobbie and Sam called her phone over and over again to no avail. Either it was off or they were getting busy signals. If they didn’t get a hold of her soon, that entire plane was going to go down in a ball of flames.
With just 45 minutes until her plane was going to take off, Dean, Sam and Bobbie peeled into the parking lot of the airport, loud screeching of tires against tar stirring up the biting scent of burning rubber. They ran through the cloud of smoke that came with it and into the airport.
In their panic, they hadn’t discussed how to get in touch with her once they got here. On instinct, Dean ran through the crowd of people and toward a phone.
“Who can I connect you to?”
“I need to get in touch with Amanda Walker at gate 13,” Dean said. Good idea. With so little time left, she was likely already there. “Hello, Ms. Walker. This is Dr. James Hetfield. Now there’s no need to panic, but a Karen Walker was just admitted to the hospital after a car crash.”
Bobbie and Sam listened in closely as Amanda panicked momentarily. “Wait, that can’t be. I was just on the phone with her a few minutes ago. She was at home and completely fine.” None of them had thought of that. “Is…is this one of Vince’s friends?”
“You caught me,” Dean said sheepishly as he stared at the ground at his shuffling feet. That’s how he’d looked whenever he got caught ever since they were kids.
