3rd Person POV
Kat drove into the Singer’s Salvage after about two hours of driving, it was now the middle of the night. Blood had started to pool on her seat and she was getting drowsy from the blood loss. She couldn’t go to the hospital knowing that she would be even more vulnerable there. She parked in front of Bobby house and got out of the car.
When she stood up, she swayed a bit and vision started to get blurry. She reached the steps and tried to push herself up. Once she reached the top, she start to bang on the door then lean against the frame. After a minute, the door opened showing a very grumpy Bobby.
“Kat?” He asked concerned, she was really pale.
“Christo.” She breathed, when nothing happened, she took a breath in relief. “Thank god.” Then started to fall over but Bobby caught her before went to the ground.
“What the hell happened to you Kat?” He asked as he brought her in.
The Winchester boys arrived at the Salvage in the afternoon, they needed help and the only other person they could trust was Bobby. They knocked at the door and waited.
“Bobby.” Sam greeted as Bobby opened the door.
“Sam? Dean?” Bobby asked as he opened the door. He looked at them both before giving them both a big hug. Then splashed them with water. “Had to make sure.” He opened the door so the boys could enter the house.
“It’s fine. Bobby we need your-” Dean said but stopped when he saw Kat on the couch. “Kat?” Sam went to Dean’s side quickly and saw Kat there too. She was a bit pale and and a bandage on her neck and leg. The boys quickly went to her side.
“She came in the middle of the night and mumbling christo then passing right out. She lost a lot of blood. I’m just wondering what happened to her.” Bobby said as he came beside the boys.
“She was kidnapped by a demon.” Dean said a little angered, that he couldn’t help her. The boys had thought the worst when Meg didn’t mention Kat on the phone earlier. Dean had almost went ballistic. Sam had to calm him down, although he was a mad too.
“A damn demon! I’m surprise she got away with all the damage she did. She could have died! Stupid girl, thinking she can handle a demon herself!” Bobby exclaimed, although he didn’t know how false that statement was.
“Kat was ambushed, along with Caleb. He wasn’t as lucky as her.” Sam said. Dean approached her and went to her side.
The darkness started to fade and I heard voices in the background. I kept hearing my name, but I couldn’t make out the voices. Then something touched my arm and I panicked a bit. So I opened my eyes and punched whoever was right there.
“Son of a bitch!” I heard Dean grunt. Looking around I saw Bobby, Sam, and Dean, who was on the ground.
“Kat are you alright?” Sam asked as he slowly approached me, ignoring Dean on the ground. But he got up and stayed behind Sam
“I’m fine.” I lied. “Just have a headache.”
“How did you escape?” Dean asked, holding his nose.
“She left and there was sharp things on the ground so I kind put two and two together thought it was the perfect time to escape.” I told them, then looked around. “Where’s John?” The boys looked at each other.
The boys explained what happened with the boys when I was gone. They said John went to give Meg the gun, but now the demon is keeping him. They saved a family from being destroyed by the demon. Sam had almost killed it but he wasn’t quick enough. So they came to Bobby for help to look for John.
“So all the action happens while I’m away.” I commented to Dean as Sam walked away.
“Looks like you didn’t miss much.” He gestured to my neck and leg.
“Just another Tuesday.” I pushed it aside.
“I’m really happy you got out of there Kat.” Dean said after a while. I looked at him, his eyes heavy with worry and restlessness. “I don’t think I could handle you gone too.”
“I’ll never be gone, Dean, I’m too stubborn for that and I will always find you. You and Sam.” I told him remember my first hunt and he was there with Sam. He smiled a bit probably remembering that too.
“But you’re still leaving though.” Dean remembered. My face dropped and I looked down. There was no way John was going to force me away from the boys. I couldn’t tell him that because I don’t want to bad mouth his father while he is presumably dead.
“Well not anymore, you guys need me with ya. I’m not leaving, only if you don’t want me to.” I told him and he smiled.
“Well it looks like you’re staying.” Dean proclaimed and I smiled at him. Then with a sudden thought, I got up and limped over to the bookshelf.
“Kat you shouldn’t be walking around.” Dean said staying behind me, just in case I fell. I ignored his comment.
“Bobby where’s that book, the one with the Key of Solomon?” I yelled. “Also good to know that all my organizing went to crap when I left.”
“I have it, right here.” He yelled from behind me. I turned to see him with the book in his hand. “Sit down, I got this Kat.” I was about to argue but Bobby gave me a look. “Sit or I’ll call her and she’ll make you sit.” Really, he had to bring Ellen into this. I huffed then went back to the couch and sat down with my arms crossed.
“Wow she must be scary if she can make Kat sit.” Dean joked and I gave him a look.
“I try not to get on her bad side.” I muttered. The book was given to Sam and then Dean and Bobby started to talk. It kind of seemed like the time before all this demon bull shit before Bobby kicked John out. I tried to get more sleep, but then I heard a dog barking. I furrowed my brows. When the hell did Bobby get a dog?
All of a sudden the side door was kicked open. I could see who it was since I was in another room, but I had a pretty good impression that it was Meg.
“No more crap, okay?” I heard Meg say. I was right and she sounded pissed. A moment later it sounded like she threw someone, so I got up hid against the wall so if she came in, she wouldn’t see me immediately. “I want the Colt, Sam – the real Colt – right now.”
“We don’t have it on us. We buried it.” Sam told her. I saw Bobby and Sam back into the room I was in, with Meg following shortly behind.
“Didn’t I say no more crap? I swear – after everything I heard about you Winchesters and that Lawrence, I got to tell you, I’m a little underwhelmed. Kitty Kat bleeding dry in a basement. Johnny tries to pawn off a fake gun, and then he leaves the real gun with you two chuckleheads. Lackluster, men. I mean, did you really think I wouldn’t find you?” She stopped in the middle of the room. Dean stepped in the room.
“Actually, we were counting on it.” Dean said and she looked back at us. Her eyes found me then went to Dean. I looked up to look at the symbol she was under and so did she.
“Gotcha bitch.” I told her.
“You know I should have known better than to leave you alone. Should have finished you off myself when I had the chance.” Meg said. “But I gotta say, you’re lookin’ pale there.” . I walked away from the room.
Sam had just finished the exorcism and she was sitting still in the chair. The demon had told us what city John was in so Dean ordered Sam to finish the exorcism. Then when the real girl came out, she told us a little more information, then died. So now Sam and Dean were off to Jefferson City… without me.
“There is no way you two are going alone.” I told them stubbornly, Sam and Dean looked at me.
“Kat there is no way that you are fighting like that.” Sam said to me.
“I’m fine Sam and I’m going to help you.” I retorted stubbornly. Sam looked to Bobby and he sighed.
“Kat come on. Before you bust a vessel and start bleeding again.” Bobby started to pull me back into the other room.
“Bobby they can’t go without me. Please I have a bad feeling that something is going to happen.” I begged him when he forced me back down on the couch.
“Well you aren’t going to do much good limping around everywhere.” He reasoned.
“I don’t limp.” I told him and he gave me a look.
“That is complete bull shit and we both know it.” Bobby told me.
“Please Bobby I have more experience with this. They’ll have a better chance with me there.” I begged him.
“I’m sorry Kat.” He told me then left the room.
The boys left about ten minutes later and that's when the cops arrived. While Bobby had been talking to the cops, trying to give a story, I had called a cab because Bobby took my car keys. Plus I didn’t want to ruin my car and hotwire it. My angel blade in my jacket and the bag of supplies from the back seat of my car. When Bobby and the cops weren’t looking I jumped into the cab and told him if he drove to Jefferson City as fast as he could he would get a hundred dollar tip. Lets just say I was clinging to the back seat, but I was preparing too.
When I had arrived at the city, I saw a bunch of fire trucks and two fireman go into a building with jeans on. Wow how did nobody see that? I made my way to the side of the building so I could see if they were going to escape from the fire escape.
As I rounded the corner to the back of the building I saw three people coming down the. Then I saw I figure running towards them, so I started to run to, ignoring the pain in my leg. The figure was about to jump Sam but I was close so I threw a holy water balloon at him. Not one of my best ideas but hey I’m not in a position to be making good decisions right now. He stopped and turned towards me, his eyes onyx. I was thrown against the wall… again.
“Kat!” I heard Sam yell. The boys started to run towards me but the demon threw them into a car.
“Wasn’t Meg suppose to bleed you dry?” The demon taunted as he got close to me. I stayed on the ground and my hand by my boot, carefully putting the blade in my sleeve. Looks like I’m taking a page from the angel book. He stood right in front of me and kicked me in the gut, he laughed. Then I slowly stood up and looked him in the eye.
“Why don’t you ask her, when you see her back in hell.” I said as I let the blade slip from my sleeve. About to reply, I plunged the blade into his chest, he flickered then fell. When he did I saw Dean pointing the gun at it and looking confused.
“How-” I was already running towards them.
“No time. Get John and let's get out of here.” I told him as he and Sam helped John. “At least you saved a bullet.” I grabbed my bag from the ground .
“Actually I used one inside the building.” Dean mentioned and I looked at him. That wasn’t suppose to happen. “There were a lot more than we thought.” We approached the impala and they placed John in the back seat. I went in the back too and they drove off. The whole time sitting back there with John, I was really cold.
Sam was taking John inside the safe house as Dean and I were getting the bags. Inside I placed my bag on the ground and sat in an old chair.
“So you want to tell me how you wasted that demon?” Dean asked me as he finished helping his dad. I sighed and took out my blade from my inside jacket pocket. I raised it then gave it to Dean.
“It’s called an Angel Blade. It has the capability of killing demons and a lot other things. Sadly, it cannot kill the demon you’re after, it’s too powerful.” I told him as he twisted the blade around in his hand.
“How did you get it?” Dean asked me as he gave me it back, I pocketed it.
“My family has a lot of old things.” I lied and he nodded. Sam came into the room with the salt.
“How is he?” Sam asked.
“He just needed a little rest, that’s all. How are you?” Dean asked Sam.
“I’ll survive. I wasn’t hit badly.” He paused. “Hey, you don’t think we were followed here, do you?”
“I don’t know. I don’t think so. I mean, we couldn’t have found a more out-of-the-way place to hole up.” Dean guessed.
“Yeah. Hey, uh.... Dean, you, um...... you saved my life back there, in the building.” Sam started. Well so did I Sam when I freakin’ saved you from that demon but whatever.
“So, I guess you’re glad I brought the gun, huh?” Dean said and Sam gave him a look
“Man, I’m trying to thank you here.” Sam broke in.
“You’re welcome.” Dean told him and Sam walked away, but Dean numb look on his face.
“Dean?” I called and he looked at me. “Are you okay?”
“ You know that guy I shot? There was a person in there.” Dean mentioned and I gave him a sympathetic look. It was the first thought I had when I killed my first demon, a long time ago.
“You didn’t have a choice Dean, there were too many and I didn’t either.”I told him and I saw Sam listening in the corner of my eye.
“Yeah, I know, that’s not what bothers me.” he confined.
“What does?” I pushed and he looked at the ground and I glanced at Sam.
“Killing that guy, killing Meg. About to shoot the guy in front of you. I didn’t hesitate, I didn’t even flinch. For Sam, Dad or you, the things I’m willing to do or kill, it’s just,” He paused for a moment at looked back at me. “It scares me sometimes.”
“That’s what love Dean, it makes you not think straight. You think when I’m saving your ass from something dangerous that I hesitate. I’m willing to put my life on the line for you and Sam without a second thought. So don’t you think for a second that only you have done things for the sake of people you love.” I told him and he just looked at me. Behind me I felt a cold chill and someone walk.
“It shouldn’t, Dean. You did good.” John said from behind me. Dean looked up to John while I turned in my seat.
“You’re not mad?” Dean asked surprised and I was a bit too.
“For what?” John countered.
“Using a bullet.” Dean clarified and John shook his head.
“Mad? I’m proud of you. You know, Sam and I, we can get pretty obsessed. But you – you watch out for this family. You always have.” John told him. Did he really admit that?
“Thanks.” Dean said. The wind suddenly picked up and the lights flickered. I stood up from my chair and reached for my blade. John and the boys went over to the window.
“It found us. It’s here.” John announced and that cold feeling got a little worse.
“The demon?” Sam asked and John turned around.
“Sam, lines of salt in front of every window, every door. Kat help him.” John ordered us.
“I already did it.” Sam told him.
“Well, check it, okay?” John said. Sam went to check the and I followed him. But when I realized that cold feeling went away when I stopped looking at John, I stopped and my eyes widened. Turning back I see John asking for the gun, and I see Dean hesitating.
“He’d be furious.” Dean mentioned and I started to walk back towards him.
“What?” ‘John’ asked confused.
“That I wasted a bullet. He wouldn’t be proud of me, he’d tear me a new one.” Dean reasoned as he raised his gun at him. “You’re not my Dad.”
“I finally realized why I kept getting that cold feeling. It’s because of you and you’re not John. Only an impure soul can do that, so who the hell are you?” I added, blade in my hand.
“What the hell’s gotten into the two of you?” John asked.
“I could ask you the same thing. Stay back.” Dean warned and Sam came back into the room.
“Dean? What the hell’s going on?” Sam questioned seeing our defensive stances.
“They’ve lost their mind’s.” John advised Sam.
“He isn’t John, Sam.” I told him.
“What?” Sam asked confused.
“I think he’s possessed. I think he’s been possessed since we rescued him.” Dean guessed still pointing the gun at John.
“Don’t listen to him, Sammy.” John ordered him, but Sam looked at us.
“How do you know?” Sam asked.
“He’s .... he’s different.” Dean answered and I looked to Sam.
“He’s colder… well colder than usually. But I can feel it, it’s like ice. Only something an impure soul can do. Something big and nasty.” I told him.
“You know, we don’t have time for this. Sam, you wanna kill this demon, you’ve gotta trust me.” John begged Sam. I look at Sam as he glances between John and us.
“No. No.” He finally answered as he walked towards Dean and I. John looks at us.
“Fine. You’re all so sure, go ahead. Kill me.” John suggested. Well we could do that, but he probably won’t stay dead. He put his head down waiting for the shot. Dean held the gun in his hand but he didn’t pull the trigger. “I thought so.” He raised his head back up and his eyes are yellow. Sam and I go to lunge but we are all thrown against different walls. The blade and gun are knocked out of our hands. I tried to move and get it but find myself pinned against the wall. John picks it up the gun.
“What a pain in the ass this thing’s been.” He gestured to the gun.
“It’s you, isn’t it?” Sam asked and the Demon looked at him. “We’ve been looking for you for a long time.”.
“Well, you found me.” The Demon said with a sick smile.
“But the holy water?” Sam remembered.
“You think something like that works on something like me?” He told him. Sam tries to fight off the force keeping him pinned but failed.
“I’m gonna kill you!” Sam exclaimed and the Demon smiled.
“Oh, that’d be a neat trick. In fact,” He put the gun on the table. “here. Make the gun float to you there, psychic boy.” Sam looked at the gun but nothing happened. When the Demon saw he couldn’t do it, he picked up my blade from the floor and tossed it between his hand.
“Not even something like this can kill me.” The Demon mentioned as he walked up to me. “I’m just wondering where you got something like this. Oh and by the way a hello from mommy and daddy from the basement.” I struggled in the grip of the force but said nothing. “You being here messed with my plans a little bit. I had to put more guards up, because of little old you.” He sighed and looked at the blade in his hand. “I didn’t see why, though at first. Then I saw you use this and it became clear. You were the hunter, who killed a lot of my kind over the last few years.” He plunged the blade into my side.
“Kat!” I heard the brothers yell as I gave a short yell.
“Payback’s a bitch.” He told me with a sick smile.
“And so was your daughter.” I snarled at it and he twisted the blade in my side. I saw Dean struggle in front of me as I gave another short shout. He walked off to the window.
“Well, this is fun. I could’ve killed you a hundred times today, but this...... this is worth the wait.” It mentioned then sighed. Dean struggled in his hold and the Demon looked at him.
“Your Dad – he’s in here with me. Trapped inside his own meat suit. He says “hi”, by the way. He’s gonna tear you apart. He’s gonna taste the iron in your blood.” It taunted Dean.
“Let him go, or I swear to God –” He struggled against the hold again.
“What? What are you and God gonna do? You see, as far as I’m concerned, this is justice.” The Demon walked right in front of Dean. “You know that little exorcism of yours? That was my daughter.” It paused. “The one in the building? That was my boy. You understand.” Then it glanced at me. “The one in the alley. My boy too.” Then it turned back to Dean.
“You’ve got to be kidding me.” Dean complained.
“What? You’re the only one that can have a family? You destroyed my children. How would you feel if I killed your family?” It said and I struggled against my hold. That son of a bitch. “Oh, that’s right. I forgot. I did. Still, two wrongs don’t make a right.” Then it turned away from Dean.
“You son of a bitch.” Dean told it.
“I wanna know why. Why’d you do it?” Sam asked it, turning its attention away from Dean and to Sam.
“You mean why did I kill Mommy and pretty, little Jess?” It asked.
“Yeah.” Sam answered and the Demon turned back to Dean.
“You know, I never told you this, but Sam was going to ask her to marry him.” It mentioned and I looked to Sam. He never told me that. The Demon then went to Sam. “Been shopping for rings and everything. You want to know why? Because they got in the way.” It hinted.
“In the way of what?” Sam pushed.
“My plans for you, Sammy. You... and all the children like you.” It said and suddenly I saw a flash of what seemed like a old western town.
“Listen, you mind just getting this over with, huh? Cause I really can’t stand the monologuing.” Dean complained and the Demon went up to him.
“Funny, but that’s all part of your M.O., isn’t it? Masks all that nasty pain, masks the truth.” It close in Dean’s face and I struggled against my hold again. The blade in my side making it painful.
“Oh, yeah? What’s that?” Dean questioned.
“You know, you fight and you fight for this family, but the truth is they don’t need you. Not like you need them. Kat - she can clearly take care of herself. Leaves anytime she wants, leaving you alone. Because that’s what everyone does Dean. They leave you.” I struggled again, that is complete bull shit. “Sam – he’s clearly John’s favorite. Even when they fight, it’s more concern than he’s ever shown you.” It taunted.
“I bet you’re real proud of your kids, too, huh? Oh wait, I forgot. I wasted ‘em.” Dean added and smiled at the Demon. It stepped back away from him and put it’s head down. When It looked back up at Dean, he started to yell in pain. My eyes widen in horror
“Dean! No!” Sam screamed, struggling.
“You bastard! Leave him the hell alone!” I yelled at the Demon. Dean’s chest started to bleed and tears started to build in my eyes. The damn Demon was killing him and I couldn’t do anything about it.
“Dad! Dad, don’t you let it kill me!” Dean begged but the Demon just smiled at him and he just started to scream in pain again.
“Dean!! No!!” Sam yelled again. Blood started to drip from Dean’s mouth and I struggled harder, tears falling freely from my eyes.
“Dad, please.” Dean begged blood running from his mouth, then passes out.
“Dean!!” Sam yells and I looked at Dean in horror. Then I turned to the Demon with one of the angriest glares I could muster.
“You son of bitch. I’m gonna kill you. I’m gonna kill the rest of your family. I’m going to kill anyone that has ever been by your side. I’m gonna kill every fucking one of you demon bastards.” I yelled at it seeing red. You mess with anyone in my family or people I love and you’ll get the horns freshly sharpened. It looked at me and smiled liking my reaction. That son of a bitch. But when it turns back to Dean something happens.
“Stop.” I hear actually John whisper. Sam is let go of the hold. “Stop it.”
Sam jumped up to get the gun and when John turns to him, it the demon again. He aimed the gun at the demon.
“You kill me, you kill Daddy.” It pointed out to Sam.
“I know.” Sam answered then fire the gun in John’s leg. As the demon fell the hold was taken away from me and Dean. I dropped down with the rest of them. Sam went to Dean. On the ground I ripped the blade from my side, which was probably a bad idea but I didn’t care. Then forced myself up to Sam and Dean’s side.
“Check on Kat. Where is she?” Dean struggled to get out, still coughing some blood.
“I’m fine, I’m right here Dean.” I said as I kneeled by Dean and I looked at Sam. I put Dean’s head on my lap.
“You good?” I asked Sam and he nodded. Then he glanced at my wound that was already spilling blood.
“Kat-” He started concerned.
“I know.” I nodded with some tears still in my eyes. I had already lost enough blood earlier, this wasn’t going to help me.
“Check on dad.” Dean said. Sam looked at me and I nodded. Then he went over to John.
“Stay with me Dean.” I ordered, my voice shaky with tears, his head still on my lap.
“Sammy! It’s still alive. It’s inside me, I can feel it. You shoot me. You shoot me! You shoot me in the heart, son! Do it now!” John yelled as he struggled to keep the demon.
“Sam, don’t you do it. Don’t you do it.” Dean begged and Sam held the gun in place.
“You’ve gotta hurry! I can’t hold onto it much longer! You shoot me, son! Shoot me! Son, I’m begging you! We can end this here and now! Sammy!” John continued to yell.
“Sam, no.” Dean whispered.
“You do this! Sammy!! Sam.....” Black smoke started to erupt from John’s mouth then it disappeared in the floor boards. Dean relaxed in my lap and Sam looked at me.
I was in the backseat with Dean while Sam and John were up front. Sam and I had struggled to get everyone in the car.
“You stay with me Dean.” I told him as I held my hand against his bleeding wound, struggling to keep my own eyes open. “Because I’m not going anywhere.”
“You promise?” Dean asked, weak from the blood loss and I nodded.
“I promise.” I proclaim, with a teary smile. “You just gotta stay with me.”
“Look, just hold on, alright. The hospital’s only ten minutes away.” Sam announced from the front seat.
“I’m surprised at you, Sammy. Why didn’t you kill it? I thought we saw eye-to-eye on this? Killing this demon comes first – before me, before everything.” John guessed. I glanced at Sam only to see him looking at me and Dean from the rear view mirror. It was only then I realized what was playing. ‘Bad Moon Rising.”. This couldn’t get any worse.
“No, sir. Not before everything. Look, we’ve still got the Colt. We still have the one bullet left. We just have to start over, alright? I mean, we already found the demon.....” Suddenly we were all pushed to the side and everything went black.
