Walking into the factory, everything was dreary and silent. Using the torch to illuminate areas of the room, I looked around for any signs of life. Suddenly, something caught my eye. Directing the beam of light at it, my eyes widened. "Daniel!" My eyes widened.
His head was lolled forwards as he sat tied to one of the wooden beams standing vertically and stretching up to the ceiling, with blood dripping down the side of his head from a gash on his scalp. Daniel's hair was matted together and his blue and grey plaid shirt was ripped open, the buttons scattered across the floor. This meant I was able to see the mass of dark blue, green and purple bruises on his stomach. He was currently unconscious.
Dean walked over to Daniel and knelt down in front of him.
"Daniel!" I screamed before running towards him.
"Sappho!" Sam shouted before grabbing my and holding me back.
"Sam, please!" I begged. "He's hurt, I gotta' help him." I stated desperately. "Let go of me!" I kicked and squirmed against his hold. "Sam!" Tears rolled down my cheeks.
Dean too noticed the bruising. Gently pressing his fingers against his chest, he sighed before turning to Sam and shaking his head.
"No! No! No! No!" I screamed tearfully. "There must be something we can do."
"His body is too damaged." Sam stated softly.
"There's gotta' be a way to help him." My vision was blurry due to the amount of tears cascading from my eyes.
"I'm sorry, Sappho..." He apologised. "The best thing for him is to stop the pain." Sam slowly let go of me.
I walked over to Daniel and knelt down beside him. Turning to Dean, I put out my hand. "I need your knife."
Dean nodded and took it out of his pocket before handing it to me.
Flipping up the blade, I carefully cut through the ropes tied around his wrists. His body was a dead weight as he fell forwards.
Dean was there to catch him as he fell before he gently lowered him to the ground.
Stroking back his soft brown hair, the tears continued to fall. "I'm so sorry, Daniel. This is my fault...I didn't protect you...But I can make it right." Leaning down, I pressed a kiss to his forehead for a few seconds before sitting upright again and breaking down in sobs.
I felt a hand on either shoulder as Dean and Sam knelt beside me.
"Go into the other room, and cover your ears." Sam whispered softly.
Taking one last look and Daniel, I nodded before standing up and slowly walking off further into the factory.
Upon reaching a room away from the other, I leaned back against the wall and drew my knees up to my chest and buried my head in my heads. I didn't cover my ears though, Although it was painful, I wanted to hear it. I wanted to be with him till the very last second of his existent. I owed him that much.
Everything was silent for a few seconds, before the sound of the bullet echoed through the factory.
