He comes to slowly, watching the clouds drift lazily far above his head. In them, he sees smiles and warm bodies embracing. He sees the past. He sees the bright light of a lover’s smiling eyes and the car he used to drive. He sees a life he loved but held for too short a time, a life that can no longer be his.
Or so he thinks until he hears a smooth, deep voice calling to him. “You gonna sleep all day, Benny? We got more monsters to fight.”
There are always more monsters to fight, but as he turns to face the man he talks to him, Benny’s heart leaps for joy. Maybe it wasn’t all just a dream, or maybe it is and always will be. Maybe this is a trap, and it isn’t really Dean looking and smiling down at him.
But Benny doesn’t care. He also doesn’t care about the fluffy cloud he sees far above his head, snarling with two drifts of darker clouds that look like fangs. The clouds don’t matter nor do the monsters. He’s got Dean; that’s all that matters. He rolls to his feet, ready to face his life again.
