Being Strong

Being Strong

Author's Note: When Dean said that he hates shots, this triggered an idea for a wee!chesters story. Enjoy! :)

"Dean, you need to have this buddy, it's gonna' make you feel better."

Dean, sat with his legs hanging over the side of the bed in one of the hospital rooms, looked at his father. He was offering a soft, gentle smile of reassurance to his nine year old son who was currently trying to hold back tears at the prospect of having to have a shot.

He'd been sick for a while now, most medication either not working at all, or simply being thrown back up. The doctors had told John that shots were probably going to be the best solution, but knowing his son's fear of shots, he had talked the doctor into trying the other possible solutions first. Now however, they had no choice.

"Now, Dean..." The doctor began. A man in his late sixties with prickly white stubble under his chin, and a pair of golden framed, round glasses hanging from a black cord. "...you will only feel a little prick, there's nothing to be worried about."

"No..." Dean whimpered quietly, feeling pathetic for doing so.

"Dean..." John out on his son's shoulder.

"No..." He shook his head. "Please..."

"Dean, you will only feel it for a second and then it's all over." John attempted to reassure, but Dean was too scared to be listening.

The pitter patter of small feet could be heard before Sam burst into the room, Bobby rushing in behind with an expression which apologised for the little kid managing to get away from him.

"Dean!" Sam beamed upon seeing his brother.

John watched as Dean's tears dried up instantly, his boy immediately putting his shield up against emotion for his little brother. Apparently Dean still believed that he couldn't be weak in front of Sam.

Sam titled his head to the side as he looked up at his brother. "Are you upset?" The kid had a sixth sense when it came to his brother. Dean wasn't the only protective one.

"No." Dean shook his head. "I'm fine, Sammy."

Sam then noticed the doctor with the syringe. "Is that gonna' make Dean better?" He asked in his childlike tone.

"Yes." The doctor nodded.

He then turned to their Dad. "If Dean gets better, can I play with him again?"

And right there, Dean knew what he had to do...or allow them to do. The expression on his little brother's face was so hopeful at the thought of having his big brother back. Because Dean had been absent the past few weeks, sleeping through most days, and generally not being strong enough to even walk around, so it was understandable why Sam was so eager to have him back. Sam himself had been banned from bothering his brother, which he had respected, despite John's concerns. Bobby had however come to stay with them after he received a call from a tearful Sam telling asking him how to make Dean better. Sam had been so lonely, and Dean felt guilty as hell about it.

"I'll do it." Dean stated, turning to the doctor.

The doctor smiled before grabbing an antiseptic wipe and dabbing it on Dean's arm.

Dean tensed in fear, his stomach churning. And then he felt a small hand lightly grasp his.

Sam looked up at his brother, offering a toothy smile.

Dean smiled back. He then felt the prick in his arm before the cool sensation ended.

"All done."

"Is he better now?" Sam asked, in his childish tone.

John smirked. "Not yet, Sammy, it needs time to work, but he will be soon."

"Yay!" Sam grinned.

Dean hopped down from the bed and lifted his little brother into his arms.

"I've missed you, Dean."

"I've missed you too, Sammy."

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

Dave Allen: Well-rounded. well-detailed story. Bull's done a thorough job developing her characters. An intriguing read!

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.

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong. Being originally from Yorkshire myself the story resonates with me personally, but this is good writing. I look forward to com...

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
