Luke Winchester - 19 years old (June 17th 1977)

Dean Winchester - 17 years old (January 24th 1979)

Sam Winchester - 13 years old (May 2nd 1983)

"Hey, kiddo." Luke smiled, walking through the doorway into the bedroom. He immediately noticed the tears that were trickling down his little brother's cheeks, despite Sam's attempts to quickly wipe them away without him noticing. "Sammy?" He asked softly, closing the distance between them and sitting down on the edge of the bed.

Sam looked up at him, revealing as he did, a large black and purple bruise around his eye.

Luke reached out and gently lifted Sam's chin up so that he could get a better look at his black eye. "Who did it?"

"Luke..." Sam began.

"Who did it?" He asked again.

"Josh Hemmings."

"Josh Hemmings as in Dean's grade Josh Hemmings?" Luke furrowed an eyebrow.

Sam nodded.

"Dean." Luke shouted.

"No! Don't..." Sam's eyes widened in panic.

Dean walked in, his expression emotionless. "What?"

Luke scoffed. "What do you mean 'what'?! Have you seen his eye?"

"It was his own stupid fault." Dean mumbled.

Sam lowered his head.

Luke took a deep breath as he tried to remain calm before getting up from the bed and walking over to Dean. "Watch your mouth." He warned. "Now are you gonna' tell me what happened?"

"Why don't you ask him?"

"I'm asking you." Luke responded. "Now I happen to remember you telling me that you're friends with Luke Hemmings."

"Yeah I am." Dean then looked across at Sam. "Care to share with the class what happened, Sam?"

"Stop being a dick, Dean! You know I didn't do anything!" Sam shouted.

"Oh were totally innocent in the whole thing..." Dean stated sarcastically.

"Right that's it...I want!" He stated sternly. "One of you two better start talking, cause' otherwise you're gonna' be explaining it to Dad and I'm sure you'd rather I sorted this than him!"

That shut them up.

"Luke punched him." Dean stated.

"I can see that..." Luke took another deep breath. "Why did he punch him?"

"Because he's annoying and never leaves us alone."

Sam got up and walked out of the room.

Luke watched his youngest brother leave before turning back to Dean. "What has gotten into you, huh? Because the Dean I know would have flattened the guy who punched his little brother, not defend him." He paused, his anger gone now, instead replaced by a soft tone. "Look, Dean, I know that the age gap between you and Sammy isn't proving ideal to you right now, but you gotta' remember that he doesn't make friends as easily as you do. He doesn't have your confidence, so yeah he'll go to his big brother at lunch. By the sounds of it, he doesn't have anyone else. It's ultimately up to you, Dean, but I'm worried about the kids you're hanging out with. You've been different ever since you made friends with them, and don't try and deny it." He paused. "It's ultimately up to you, Dean, but think about the long term. Sammy's always gonna' be your little brother, but those kids aren't always gonna' be your friends."

Dean walked out the room.

Luke heard the sound of the motel room door closing. He sighed.

The door then closed a second time.

Luke furrowed an eyebrow and walked into the main room to find it empty.

Walking round the back of the motel, Sam followed Dean's tracks to a large field. He then located his brother lying amongst the tall, golden wheat. Sam slowly walked closer.

Dean flickered an eye open to see his little brother stood awkwardly a few steps away from him with a saddened expression.

"Dean..." Sam spoke up in a cautious tone.

"'re not allowed to leave the motel."

"Just listen for a minute...please."

Dean nodded.

"I'm sorry..." He began.

"Sam..." Dean sighed, but was cut off.

"I'm sorry for being clingy and annoying. I don't mean to be it's just..."

"Sam you're not the one who should be apologising. That's me. I was being an dick and I'm sorry. I should have protected you...I should have kicked Josh's ass..."

"Dean, he's your friend."

"He is, but he shouldn't be. Not after what he did to you."

"It's fine."

"No, it's not." Dean shook his head. "You've got a shiner the size of Russia and bruises all over you."

"Doesn't hurt anymore."

Dean winced in guilt at 'anymore' before he patted the space next to him.

Sam was hesitant at first before he walked over and lay down on his back beside Dean. "Sorry for getting you in trouble."

"With who, Luke?" Dean asked.

Sam nodded.

"Dude, I'm not in trouble with Luke. Luke is forever my kicking my ass. That's his job. He keeps me right when I'm being a dick." Dean paused. "It's cool, man, honestly." He smiled. "Luke was just being protective of his little, little brother, that's all." Dean ruffled Sam's hair.

Sam smiled. "So you're not mad?"

Dean shook his head.

"Thanks, Dean."

"You're welcome, Sammy."

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

Vidânia Macossa: continue Forward.I hope you get a publication. Congratulations on your book.

Katy Blair: This is definitely a must read!!! I am not saying anymore, because I do not want to give away anything related to the story. Just read and find out how truly amazing this story is!!!

David Ramati: An unusual story, well worth reading. Good conversations, excellent prose, and keeps my interest, maybe because I was there, back in the day. You won't be able to pt this book down.

David Ramati: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Hayley: Beautiful story that has been well written. Something I will definitely read again. I loved how you could feel the tension between them and I loved the ending because It left it open to our imagination. I look forward to seeing to reading further stories by the same author.

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

ngonisiga: I am at loss for words in my attempt to descibe the sublimeness of this story. Kudos to you! I am so impressed at the way the story weaves itself from Navarre to England and back and finally to Sicily. You left me wanting more for this is the stuff dreams are made of in book lovers.

Radecki: This is one of the freshest stories I've read in a while. Author (Thetawave) has accomplished that rare feat of creating something original. If I had to label his writing style I would call it "baroque LSD".

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl. I especially love the idea of dwarves being seafaring folk instead of...

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

Tina Hacker: Lindsey Martin=Bowen blends humor with satiric takes on modern life. Her characters are introduced seamlessly and tell the reader their stories--if we can read them between laughs! I hesitate to write exactly what she parodies but anyone reading her book will know in a minute. Just think large-...
