Dean loves the way he feels with the Impala’s wheel in his hand. When he’s driving her, it’s easy to imagine his father doesn’t control them. It’s easy to envision taking to the road and driving wherever he chooses. It’s easy to think he dictates his and his brother’s futures, not John or the monsters they fight. Their future never looks brighter, or freer, than it does when he’s cruising with the Impala’s steering wheel in his hands.
He calls her Baby when no one’s listening. She means more to him than any girl he’s ever known except his mother, and she loves that. She loves him. She has ever since John first set him in her backseat. She’d loved Mary too, but Mary’s gone now. John’s mind isn’t right. She can’t heal that boy, but maybe she can heal this one.
She switches on her radio and lets his favorite song play. He’ll think it’s a glitch he has to fix later, but right now he’s smiling, drumming his fingers along with the rock music, and singing. She loves his voice, the way he touches her, the way he cares for her. Their future is going to be bright!
