Dean slowly inched his way through the kitchen, still gripping a cast iron skillet. It had been the closest thing he’d been able to grab when the fight had gone down, but he still wished he had one of his father’s other weapons instead. But would normal weapons even work against an enemy like this one?
Sammy followed behind him, grinning widely and not staying behind no matter how many times Dean waved frantically at him to do so. Finally, they reached the scene. As Dean looked down through wide, terror-filled eyes, Sammy crooned. “That’s my boy! I told you he was a good boy, Dean! Cats are great protection!”
The cat in question studied Dean with intent, unblinking eyes. He belched, then swallowed the little, cotton tail that had still been hovering on his feline lips.
Dean’s air left him in a woosh of relief. He collapsed back against the wall and finally laid the skillet down on the nearby counter. He didn’t know which he found most surprising: the cat’s swift, unhesitating protection or the fact that the damn bunny had been a Vampire after all! He wasn’t surprised at all, though, when his kid brother rushed pass him, gathered the stray up into his small arms, and gave the cat the biggest hug of his life. “Can we keep him?”
“He saved your life,” his father said, coming into the room. “Of course we keep him.”
Sammy whooped and swept the cat up higher toward the ceiling. The cat mewed, as if to say he could handle a Vampire bunny just fine but a little boy with too much sugar might be another thing altogether. Dean grinned, but his smile vanished at his father’s glower. Oh, well, if he got Sammy a pet, it was worth it!
