Reynolds posted a Facebook Live video showing the moments after the encounter between Castile and Yanez. Reynolds’ daughter, who was 4 at the time, was in the backseat of the car.

“We got pulled over for a busted taillight in the back,” Reynolds says in the beginning of the Facebook Live video. “The police just, just … he’s covered.”

“He’s licensed to carry,” Reynolds explains of Castile. “He was trying to get out his ID and his wallet out his pocket, and he let the officer know that he had a firearm, and he was reaching for his wallet, and the officer just shot him in his arm.”

Dean’s POV

Dean wakes when he hears muffled footsteps in the bunker hallway. Fumbling in the dark, he reaches for the pistol in the top drawer of his nightstand. It’s highly unlikely that there’s an intruder in the bunker, but it never hurts to be careful.

Cautiously making his way down the hall, he pauses and opens Sam’s door quietly. Sam is out like a light, snoring softly. The next door is (Y/N)’s. Silently he twists the knob and peeks in. (Y/N) is not in her bed.

Moving a little more rapidly, he makes it to the library just in time to hear the outside door open. The door is heavy and groans loudly in protest. It slams shut as Dean makes his way up the stairs, two at a time.

He makes it out the door just in time to see the taillights of (Y/N)’s disappearing down the drive.

———-

Reader’s POV

I’d like to say I was stoic about the whole thing, stiff upper lip and all that. I thought I was made of sterner stock, but I just parked the car at the end of a long, dusty road and sobbed. For hours. Sobbed until I couldn’t breathe. Until my ribs hurt and my lungs felt like they were going to explode.

My heart aches as if it’s splitting into little shards of glass, splintering and fracturing, tiny lines cracking through it.

I am not strong enough for this.  

I am terrified.

———-

The sun is just breaking over the horizon when I pull up in front of the bunker. Pinks and oranges wash over the clouds, the rays of the sun promising a warm and sunny day.

Despite the weariness in my bones, or maybe in spite of it, I take a moment to appreciate it’s stunning beauty. I close my eyes and imagine for a moment that the sun is melting away all my pain and fear.

But I open my eyes and the dream fades and disappears.

anonymous asked:

Can you write something where you and Niall have broken up and she contemplates going to his party for his single and she sees him with another girl and she gets really upset? You can end it however you please, thank you! :)

Six months.  Six months since you’d last felt his hands on your skin.  Six months since you’d heard his breathy giggle close to your ear.  Six months since you’d been happy.  He’d tried to warn you that the distance would be hard.  That his time would be stretched between the studio and promo.  You’d assured him it would be fine……until it wasn’t.  Looking back, the actual break up was completely unnecessary.  You’d been too stubborn.  Too hurt.  You’d wanted him to run after you, beg you to come back, promise things would get better.  He’d been hurt and confused, analyzing every last word you’d spoken trying to figure out where he went wrong.  In the end he’d let you go.  Not because he wanted to, but because he thought a little space to cool down would put things in perspective.  

Neither of you picked up the phone.  For six months.

Now you were in the back of an Uber, sat outside his sprawling LA house.  You could see the house ablaze with light over the wall and hear the faint sounds of splashing water and lilting laughter from the party guests around the pool.  You picked at the corner of the invitation in your hands.  Simple beige cardstock with his new logo embossed in the center.  He was throwing a party to celebrate the success of his latest single.  When you’d pulled the piece of paper out of the envelope it felt like all the air was sucked from the room.  You hadn’t even listened to the song yet, too afraid of the emotions it would dredge up.
