“Dean! Oh my - ”
Dean storms right past Sam and dumps Jack’s bloody knife in the sink. He doesn’t look at him as he turns on the water, but it doesn’t matter. Sam’s already up out of his seat and crowding against him along the counter.
“I knew you were in bad way after Cas but, Dean, I thought you were dealing - ”
Dean rolls his eyes. “It’s not mine,” he snaps, turning over his shoulder. Bright red blood pools in the sink as the faucet rushes over it.
Sam, still gaping, manages to narrow his eyes as his alarm fades away. “What did you do?”
Dean frowns. “Nothing. Why do you think that I - ”
Sam sags then, his body collapsing into itself all at once before he pulls himself to his full height. His eyes melt into that deplorable sad puppy dog look, the kind of look that’s going to turn into guilt some day. “Oh no. Oh, Jack…”
Dean shakes his head. “He’s fine, Sam. Obviously. You know damn well something like this couldn’t do any serious damage.”
Just like that, the puppy look slips away. Sam glares. His lip curls and his eyes narrow and he leans forward in the meanest way that Dean has ever seen from him. For a second he actually wonders if Sam’s going to hit him.
“You think I only care if he’s hurt? You think - Dean, that kid is suicidal now. He’s not even a week old and he - ”
Sam suddenly cuts off and wipes his face with his hand.
“You know what?” he says. “You’re seriously messed up, man. You have a problem, and - don’t look at me like that - and you need to stay the hell away from Jack from now on.”
Dean lets the water run. Low and dark, he murmurs, “I have a problem?”
“Yeah, Dean, you do,” Sam snaps. “You didn’t see him out there, terrified and alone. He thinks you hate him. I’m starting to think that maybe you’re the one with no soul around here.”
He leaves the room, stomping away in a huff, and Dean knows that he’s headed off to Jack’s room. He’s going to clean up the mess, he’s going to try and soothe all the wounds that aren’t visible. Sam’s good like that, and he just doesn’t know when to quit.
Dean stares down into the drain, pink-dyed water circling the abyss.
“I don’t have a fucking problem,” he insists, but it’s only to an empty room.
He shuts off the water and leaves the knife in the sink.
