Sam was nothing if not persistent, he always had been, but now Dean was the sole focus of the beam of his intent. And Dad's old trick of stashing a new (to Sam) book or a candy bar beneath the car's seat didn't work now he was grown.

He wanted answers, and he didn't let Dean dissuade him. Not that Dean fought so very hard to keep his silence. Every time he tried to argue, to refuse, the scar that traced the curve of his left hipbone seemed to burn and throb, felt warm and damp beneath his jeans, and he smelled tears. He thought perhaps he should remember why.

For every scar and broken bone that he'd not witnessed, Sam insisted Dean tell the tale - he hung on every word. He pulled out details, probed the corners of Dean's memory, insisting on a clear, complete retelling of events.

He marked the pages of the journal to remind him which demon, ghost or beast had harmed his kin. Tiny pinprick spots of Sam's own blood smeared in the corner - penance and payment - a promise for the future.

The bench seat in the Impala appeared to shrink with every journey, bringing elbows, knees and thighs together much too much. Neither brother ever mentioned it or moved away.

The motel rooms seemed to grow ever smaller, twin beds forced closer to leave room for all their gear. A yard apart and then a foot, and then an inch was wasteful. Soon they took to renting doubles where they could.

The bathroom doors no longer closed the way they used to - warped by steam and years of misuse, they surmised. It wasn't worth their time to register complaints. They made the best of it.

The hot water for their showers grew ever scarcer and it seemed unfair to make one finish up his wash with cold. With a tilt of eyebrow and a small, crooked grin, they made a pact to share it equally.

Dean woke sometimes, in the fullness of the night, and listened as Sam whispered soft apologies. Fingers, feather-light and worshipful, traced the scars and bumps of broken bones he'd learned the truths of. And Dean smelled tears.

Dean caught his inner cheek between his teeth and bit down hard, holding back the sinful secrets he had still to share. His tongue traced the line of scar tissue the trick had brought him, and he smiled.



Part Five

Ohhhhh yes, just, using the crappy ass rooms as an excuse to drift even closer.

Loves this.

Oh, wonderful. This was, again, incredbly hot without actually being explicit. The way the boys are dancing closer and closer together, in that slow, sexy way, is breathtaking. I especially love this: Every time he tried to argue, to refuse, the scar that traced the curve of his left hipbone seemed to burn and throb, felt warm and damp beneath his jeans, and he smelled tears. Wow.

Thank you!

I wanted to show them getting closer without actually having them get groiny. I liked the suspense of it.

I love LOVE the whole space getting less. This story is just beautiful in all ways. Beautiful love, characterizations, writing, and plot.

Argh. Is it bad to know the ends coming up and that I don't want it to? I want this tory to just keep going...
darkhavens: sn blues bros [literati]darkhavens on March 8th, 2006 05:16 am (UTC)
Aaaaaaaaaw. {{{hugs}}} Well, it's over now. I just finished it off. and they're just about as close can be now. ;)

thanks!

Yes, yes, hell yes.
:)
Yes.
Lovely.

Thank you!

I just couldn't have him folding corners or scribbling notes, I have too much respect for books, but blood seemed like a suitable sacrifice. ;)

I'm in tears by how beautiful I found this piece. The emotion it evokes is powerful. I like the subtle changes and excuses. But I especially like how Dean thinks he should remember why.
darkhavens: sn blues bros [literati]darkhavens on March 8th, 2006 05:19 am (UTC)
Thank you!

These boys are just full of excuses. And they fool no one! :D

Oh I love it.
Slow build is good build.
darkhavens: sn blues bros [literati]darkhavens on March 8th, 2006 05:21 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I love a slow build myself, the anticipation, the tension, the 'get on with it, dammit, now!' of it all. :D
belleimani on March 8th, 2006 04:45 pm (UTC)
You're welcome.
While I love the final get it on, the anticipation makes me tingle.

It's a terribly addictive fandom, I warn you now. But they are such pretty, pretty boys... :D
