One of the Weirdest Days Ever
Sam and I were 4 hours in on our trip to Louisiana and we had another 14 hours to go. I was barreling down the highway with Journey on the radio.
“You seem to go on a lot of trips by yourself.” Sam spoke up.
“Oh yeah, you have no idea. My mom used to keep me home all the time, she wouldn’t let me go anywhere unless I text her every five minutes and it was approved. Also, I wasn’t allowed to hang out with just boys alone. Well, texting doesn’t exist yet and I’m hanging out with you. Now Bobby says I could take trips as long as I call. I feel free when I’m zooming on a dead highway.” I tell him with a blissful look, and he chuckles at me.
“Lucky, my dad and Dean only let me drive the car sometimes, that's only when he and Dean are hurt.” He said and I smiled mischievously.
“You want to drive?” I ask Sam. He dropped his jaw and I pull to the side of the road with a small smirk.
“Are you serious? I only drove a couple times before. I-” I cut him off.
“Sam it is an empty highway with no trees or anything for miles.” I say with a shrug.
“I don’t even have a license…” he said lowly. I rolled my eyes and got out of the car to go to the other side.
“Move over.” I ordered and he complied. “Do you think I first drove when I had a permit or license? Hell no. It is real simple, just put the car into drive and go straight.” He took a deep breath and did as I said. “See nothing bad, now drive a little faster grandma, I saw a tumbleweed pass us.”
“I’m going the speed limit, though.” He said. I shook my head and chuckled.
“Think of those pesky signs as a… suggestion.” I said innocently with a shrug. “plus how are we going to get to Louisiana in time if you are going 60?” Sam went faster a bit, we were at 80 and I wasn’t going to push him anymore. It was probably 6 hours later and we were getting tired so I told Sam to pull into the next small town and find a motel.
I walked into the motel to get a room while Sam stayed outside. A nice woman checked me in and I got a room for the night.
“Okay Sam our room number is 12, let's get some sleep. We are getting up bright and early just warning you.” I told Sam as we walked into the room. There was two beds, a tv, and a mini kitchen. I set my bag onto the bed and start looking for my pj’s.
“That's fine with me.” He replied. I turned to look at him with a surprised expression. “What?” he asked.
“What no arguments or complaints?” I questioned him, he furrowed his brows and shook his head. I look towards the ceiling. “Thank you God, a Winchester who doesn’t argue with me.” Sam looked at me funny. “What? Last time when I was on trip with your brother I had to spill cold water on him, in order to get him up.” I explained with a shrug. Sam sat on his bed.
“Yeah, I never got to ask you about that. How was that?” Sam inquired curious. I sat down on my bed too.
“Well he was... Dean.” I shrugged. “ The only time we had a problem was in the mornings and when he wanted to eat in a bar.” Sam nodded.
“You know Dean was unusually happy after that trip you guys took.” Sam revealed. I look at him and smirk.
“Well before he hitched a ride with me, he had spent the weekend with a bendy yoga instructor.” I told him. Sam’s eyes widened, I chuckled and made my way to the bathroom.
“He told you that!” Sam exclaimed appalled. I chuckle.
“Oh Sammy, I already knew. That was his “Five states in five days” trip, when he met Lisa Braeden.” I explained with a shrug.
“I thought you don’t know the events that happened on that show.” Sam asked confused.
“I only know facts and events that already happened.” Sam nodded and I went into the bathroom.
A half hour later I come out in my pj’s, on old shirt and a pair of shorts. I jumped onto my bed face down and snuggled into the pillow.
“You know sometimes I wonder who the older one is.” Sam joked and I looked at him mock offended. We laughed and slowly I fell asleep.
“Kat wake up.” I hear in the darkness and I open my eyes. Sam was at the side of my bed already dressed and ready to go.
“Sam?” I look at the clock, 5:03. “You know Sam I didn’t mean this early.” I tiredly explained to him. He raised an eyebrow at me.
“Kat I believe you said that we were to wake up bright and early.” Sam recalled from last night. I look out the window, the sun wasn’t even shining yet.
“Well it is early, but isn’t bright so wake me up then.” I told him and turned away. Suddenly I’m being picked up and dropped onto the bed. I sit up with a panicked expression. “What the hell Sam!” I exclaim. He just sat on his bed and crossed his arms with an innocent look. Grumbling I walk to the bathroom. “And Dean calls me the controlling one.” Sam chuckled behind me. In the bathroom I took my sweet time and by the time I got up Sam was looking at me pointedly. “What?” I ask him innocently as I pack my bag. He just smiled and shook his head. I picked up my bag and went to the door. “You are riding shotgun Sammy.” I told him.
Fast forward about 6 hours and we were by New Orleans, but the safehouse wasn’t in there, it was outside of it. Driving up the driveway I see an old southern mansion. This was the safehouse? What the hell?
“Kat what is this?” Sam asked, just as confused as I was.
“This is apparently my family’s safe house in Louisiana state.” I said as I parked in front of the place. I get out of the car and look around. The grass was cut and clean. The front porch had a light. I walk to the front door and grab the key that had an “L” on it. After I unlocked it, I slowly walked inside. It was beautiful and updated. Looks like my family was still around I just had to find them at the right place and time.
“Kat this place looks new, I thought your parents died.” He said bluntly, mesmerized by the look of the inside.
“They are. This isn’t just their place, the entire Lawrence Family owns this. By the looks of my journal, so many more places like this.” I explained.
“Awesome.” Sam said. We look around, the kitchen was amazing. The living room was huge with a fireplace. There was pictures of family members. I recognized a lot of them, like my uncles and cousins. There was a library full of lore too. Upstairs there were many bedrooms, I took the master because I could and Sam took the one across from me. I called Bobby and told him we were fine and I continued to look around the place.
“Kat check this out!” I hear Sam yell from across the house. I run to him and see him standing in front of a doorway. He opened the door and my jaw dropped. Inside there was weapons of every kind and bottles of unknown substances.
“Holy crap. Your family is the real deal.” Sam said dumbfounded. I picked up a sword and weighed it in my hand.
“Well they have been doing this for centuries. This is some serious family business.” I explain. After looking around that room for a while, I try to find the attic. When I do there is boxes of old journals and dresses from the 1800’s. Along with pictures from a long time ago.
We spent the rest of the day exploring the mansion and seriously it was amazing. In the morning I wanted to go to New Orleans since I had never been there.
When we got into the city, I immediately wanted to go to the French Quarter. It was really beautiful and it had such a rich history. Sam had been here before so he was showing me around. We bought lunch in a little restaurant and just had fun. I wanted to go to Bourbon Street because there was some cool shops around it. There was a stand with some funky sunglasses on it. Sam and I were trying different ones on. Then suddenly Sam stared off into on direction. I followed his gaze and found a black impala with a license plate that read “KAZ 2Y5”. We looked at each other with panicked expressions and try to hide. I bought the glasses and we tried to get out of there unnoticed.
“What the hell are they doing here?” I ask Sam, he shrugs.
“I don’t know, they kind of didn’t tell me anything after the whole situation.” He explained as we were walking away. As we were walking back to my car, we were so close to safety until Dean steps out in front of it. Busted.
“Well I have got to say this was a little unexpected. I imagined that you would have brought him to California or something, but here.” He gestured around him. “Was this your trip you had in mind?” Dean said calculated. I stood up straight and put my hand on my hips.
“No this was just a pit stop. Now come on Sam, we’re going.” I say to Dean with a sickly sweet smile and try to get to my seat, but he moved in front of me.
“What are you doing here Kat?” Dean asked me sincerely. I raised an eyebrow at him and pushed past him.
“I wasn’t here for you sweetie, if that's what you’re thinking.” I said to him from the side of my car. “Come on Sam, let's get out of here.” Sam got into the car. Dean went beside me and leaned on the door so I couldn’t get in.
“I’m serious Kat. What are you doing here?” he asked once more with a soft expression. I tilted my head and smirked. I always wanted to say this.
“Well that’s for me to know and for you to dot dot dot. Now move Winchester.” I ordered and he did. He leaned down to the window and I cracked it.
“Kat I’m sorry. I-” I cut him off.
“Dean save it. Plus you shouldn’t be apologizing to me.” with that I drove off. Once we left the city I let out a breath.
“Kat I got to say you can be pretty calculating and vindictive when you want to be.” Sam spoke to break the silence. I turn to him and shrug.
“It’s a bad quality, I know. But it sure comes in handy sometimes… But that was pretty bad ass.” I admit. Sam laughed.
“Yeah, I mean when you said those things I’m surprised that Dean didn’t do something.” Sam expressed.
“He felt sorry for the other fight and he didn’t want to start another one. I really hope he doesn’t tell your dad that we’re here though. That would suck.” I said with slightly worried.
“No he wouldn’t, but he will try to find us.” Sam explained. I sighed as I pulled into the driveway. As I drive over it though, I see a rail at the beginning of it. I stopped the car and got out to examine the rail.
“No way.” I breathed as I looked in either direction to see that it continued on.
“Kat whats a matter?” Sam asked from behind me.
“This property is inside on huge devil’s trap. I only heard of this being done by Samuel Colt, but this is amazing.” I explained to Sam.
“The ultimate safe house.” Sam utters amazed. “Your family is seriously awesome.” I nod.
We got inside the house and I realized that there was no food here. So I was going to buy some fast food.
“Hey Sam I’m going to go to the store and buy some food. I’ll be right back.” I yell into the house.
“Okay!” he yelled back and before I closed the door I swear I could have heard Sam’s cell phone ring.
I came back with chinese food and walked into the kitchen to place it down.
“Sam come on I got chinese.” I heard footsteps behind me and I turn around. “I got you lo-” I stopped because it wasn’t Sam in front of me. It was Dean, then Sam walked in behind him with a guilty expression. I narrow my eyes at him. “Sam you traitor.”
“Kat he apologised, we’re good. Now you two have to make up.” Sam conveyed. I raise my eyebrows and scoff.
“Are you kidding me, Sam. I have nothing to say to him.” I cross my arms.
“You don’t have to, Kat.” Dean spoke up. “Listen I was being a jerk-” I snort. “ I was afraid that I was going to lose my brother.” he admitted. I had a deadpan expression on my face and saw that Sam left. Dean stepped closer. “Kat I was afraid that you were going to tell him to go to college and he would have listened. I’m afraid of not being able to protect him.” he stepped closer with every word.
“You didn’t have to tell him no immediately, you could have said that to him. Instead of having him believe that you were disappointed in him. He looks up to you Dean and having you say no, hurts him.” I explain to him. Dean sighed and sat on a chair behind the counter.
“I know…” he whispered almost to himself. He looked at me. “I’m sorry Kat. Sam told me about the whole road trip though. He also told me that you said it was his choice if he wanted to go.”
“I told you, you ass. Why couldn’t you believe me. All I do is make sure that you two are alright. I make sure that you guys keep having smiles on your faces because I feel like one day, it will be a rarity.” I express with sad eyes. “Do you think I like being upset with you? I hate it because I know I can be a real bitch-” he smiles and snorts. “ and do things that hurt you. Don’t ever think for a second that I would want to hurt you because I don’t and never will. Believe me when I say it hurts me more than it will ever hurt you.” I finished, he looks at me with this unreadable expression on his face. He gets up and comes up to me. Then he takes my face, leans down, and kisses me. I stood there frozen and Dean broke it as fast as he began it, then looked for my reaction. My eyes were wide and I forgot how to breathe.
“Kat breathe.” Dean ordered amused. I hit my chest with my fist and I took a deep breath. Then I looked up to him and frowned.
“You stole my first kiss, you ass.” I pouted and Dean chuckled. “That was quite unexpected though. Also that was the best thank you ever!” I utter with a laugh. “Just don’t do that again.” He rolled his eyes and we stand there for a few moments. He kept looking at me and I was starting to get uncomfortable. “Um... Dean can you let go of me.” he looked down and looked like he didn’t realize that I was still in his grasp. He let of me like I was on fire and rubbed the back of his neck.
“Sorry and thanks Kat.” He said awkwardly. I pat his back and move to go towards my room.
“Okay chick flick moment done. You can stay for dinner Dean, I’m just glad you made up with your brother.” I express to him and he nods. I quickly make it up to my room and shut the door behind me. Holy freaking crap! Note to self: if you ever get Dean emotional he might kiss you. Can’t do that again.
I come back downstairs to see that Dean and Sam had started to eat without me.
“What the hell guys!” I exclaim and they look at me. “Why did you start without me?” I pouted and Sam rolled his eyes.
“You were taking way too long Kat.” Dean said and I rolled my eyes.
“I was gone for five minutes.” I assert as I grab a chair and grab my pork fried rice.
“You know Kat this place is awesome.” Dean mentioned and I laughed.
“Yeah, no kidding. I was probably as surprised as you were.” I replied and grabbed a spoonful of rice. The rest of the dinner was full of laughter and smiles. When we were done Dean had to go back to John. “See you at Bobby’s Dean.” he nods, then leans down and looks to the side so his cheek was right in front of me face. Confused I grabbed his face and positioned his head so he was looking at me. “What are you doing?” I asked him.
“What? No goodbye kiss.” Dean says mock upset. I chuckle and pat the side of his face.
“Not today buddy.” I told him. He smirked and stood up.
“So next time?” Dean guessed and I pushed him out of the house.
“Goodbye Dean.” I yelled at him through the door. I took a deep breath and went to find Sam. “Sam we should hit it pretty early tonight. We got to head out in the morning, if we are going to make it home before your dad and brother.” I explained as I saw him in the library. He nods and comes up to me too. Before he reaches me I hold my hands up and stop him. “You’re not going to kiss me, right?” I ask him seriously. He furrows his brows and shakes his head. “Good, because a hug sounds real good right now.” He rolls his eyes and hugs me. Then he let go and looks at me.
“Did Dean kiss you?” He asked with wide eyes.
“Yeah, it was pretty weird way of saying thank you and sorry.” I say with a laugh.
“So are you and Dean…?” Sam trailed off. It took me a few seconds to realize what he was implying and my eyes widened.
“No!” I exclaim. “Just no. Never ever going to happen… like ever.” I say appalled. Sam smirked.
“Just tell me when to send out the wedding invites.” He mentioned and I narrow my eyes at him.
“Not funny.” I told him as I walked away. He laughed.
“Come on it was a little funny.” Sam told me, as he caught up with me and I punched his shoulder. “Ow, damn you can pack a punch.” he rubbed his shoulder.
“See you in the morning Sam.” I yell as I quickly walk to my room.
