'Stitches and Ice Cream'

The first time Dean really saw Sammy bleed, he was seven and Sammy was three.

Dad was busy arguing on the payphone in the motel lobby while they were tossing a ball around out front. Dean let it fly and Sam jumped too high too soon and missed. Nothing new there. But this time he went stumbling back into the grass at the edge of the lot. Flailing wildly, he caught his toes on the kerb and landed on one knee, a pudgy hand coming down squarely on a shard of shattered beer bottle.

He didn't scream. He didn't cry. Instead, he held his hand out to Dean, tiny droplets of blood kicking up the dust around his scuffed black sneakers.

"Dee? Hurts, Dee. Fix it?"

Dean's stomach rolled over and threatened to evict his lunch, but he was made of stronger stuff than that. He was older, and Dad trusted him to take care of Sammy and, oh yeah, Dad was going to kill him for this for sure.

He tried not to look at the blood on the ground, tried not to step in it. He tried not to let the fear in his heart paint shadows on his face. He failed.

Dean was across the parking lot and scooping his brother up in shaking arms almost before Sammy's bottom lip had time to tremble. He hugged the toddler close, swallowing a jerky sob as Sammy wrapped his uninjured hand around the back of Dean's neck and grabbed onto a handful of collar, his usual method of holding on for the ride.

After making sure that Sam was properly settled in his arms, Dean began the slow return journey over the crumbling asphalt, half-convinced the building was sliding backwards with every step he took.

A shaky breath signalled insipient tears from Sammy and Dean scrambled mentally for a distraction.

"Wanna know something cool?"

Huge wet eyes met Dean's as Sammy studied him, his steadily dripping hand held out away from both their bodies. He nodded.

"U-huh."

"I bet you're gonna need stitches to close that up."

Sam's eyes got even wider and his mouth formed a perfect 'O' of shock.

"But that's good, see? When I fell off Josh Petersen's skateboard in Omaha, I had to go to hospital so they could stitch my knee back on."

Sam's eyes bugged and he twisted in Dean's arms, trying to look down to check out Dean's knees. Dean wrestled him back into position and kept on walking.

"Well, okay, maybe it wasn't that bad." He winked. "But, see, after I got stitches, Dad and Mom let me have ice cream, with cherry sauce and chopped nuts and sprinkles and jelly beans!"

A love of all things sugar-filled and frozen dairy glinted in both pairs of hazel eyes, and they shared a grin. And then Dean was nudging open the sticky metal door and watching as their dad dropped the payphone into its cradle with a curse that Dean knew better than to repeat ever again… after the last time.

I love babywinchester fics. This one was so cute and I really liked how Dean couldn't stand to see Sam hurt even when they were little. I also love that Sam called him "Dee" Too cute.

And yeah, you just know that Dean was one of those kids who would pick the curse word out of a 300 word speech and parrot it back at the most inopportune moment. *g*

They're the sweetest thing ever! I love how you've written Sam's gestures, expressions and the utter trust and admiration towards Dean.
darkhavens: sn damaged [literati]darkhavens on April 10th, 2006 01:25 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm sure that Dean was Sam's hero for a long time growing up. Dean took care of him and always had tall tales to tell, of lost knees and such. ;)

Aw my heart just broke when Sammy called him 'Dee.'

'Wanna know something cool?' Ah you've got young boys down to a T. Really liked this.

Thank you!

I was 'Gee' for several years, so I wrote that from experience. And the culprit was a baby bro, so I got that covered too. Blood and gore was aaaaaalways cool. *g*

"Dee? Hurts, Dee. Fix it?"

*dies of cuteness* I love Baby!Winchester fics more than I love chocolate! And you wrote them so adorably and true to character, and, and, and I just love it so much!

And Sammy calling Dean "Dee" reminded me of how my little brother used to call me "See" 'cause he couldn't say "sister." And... yeah. Precious mini- Sam and Dean moments just make me go all gooey inside...

That just about killed me!

Dean, always the protector.
darkhavens: sn damaged [literati]darkhavens on April 10th, 2006 01:36 am (UTC)

Dean was Sam's hero for a long time, I'm positive. I see little sparks of hero worship and denial in Sam every so often and it makes me squee. *g*

I'm sure baby Sam had a huge case of hero worship on big bro Dean and Dean totally lived up to it.

Aaaaaaaand now i'm picturing wee!Dean in Superman footie pyjamas. Oh god, someone stop me! *g*

I reviewed this already, didn't I? Anyway, I loved lil Sam and lil Dean.
But what brought me here now was something that I realized. I've been checking your fics, and thought, hey, I wonder if I add darkhavens it will be okay. Anyway, I'm friending you. So you know.
Hugs.

Ok my first ever Supernatural fic and now I'm hooked. This was just too uber cute for me to turn away from. I need more now, I'll have to go out and find out about the series so I can understand it. Guh!

Nonetheless awesome story, loved Sam calling Dean 'Dee', too cute for words. Kid!fics are a weakness of mine, and this was above and beyond kawaii! *grins* *glomps* *waves*
darkhavens: rodney adorkable [literati]darkhavens on April 10th, 2006 01:51 am (UTC)

lovetheboys: Dean -- Herolovetheboys on March 29th, 2006 01:52 pm (UTC)
...with a curse that Dean knew better than to repeat ever again… after the last time.

It's all adorable, cute little over-reactive!Dean and still as-innocent-as-he-wants-to-be!Sam, but that line was just perfect. Why is it so amusing to hear/think about little kids swearing, especially when they're immitating their parents?

Adorable story.
darkhavens: sn eyefuck [literati]darkhavens on April 10th, 2006 01:54 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I just know that Dean was the kid whose eyes lit up when he heard a curse word and he would hoard it until it could do the most damage and then drop it like a bomb in the middle of the room. *g*
