Dean groans, eyeing the disc Sam holds. “Braveheart?! Dude, that is the last time you go pick us up a movie!”
“Dean,” Sam returns tensely, “shut up.”
Dean pauses, his mouth slightly agape. Then he sees the unshed tears in his brother’s eyes and suddenly understands. Growing solemn, he asks softly, “It’s today, isn’t he?” He almost wishes Sammy would say “no”, that he would lie to him, but his answer comes in a grave nod of his little brother’s head. “Damn.” But then Dean nods too. “Okay. Put it on.”
“She was a brave heart,” Sam whispers as the movie starts.
“The bravest,” Dean agrees and looks away before his brother can see his tears. Their brave Charlie had been killed on this day, but her memory would never be forgotten. She may not be mourned by a nation like Braveheart, but she was mourned.
