Chapter 1: Revealed

A girl hid out of view, watching as the tall brunette male – Sam, she recalled from observing the older group of gifted– limped towards the shorter, yet slightly older, brunette male - who he called Dean – who was holding a gun pointed towards the ground. There was another man, older than both Sam and Dean, wearing a cap with his own gun standing slightly behind and, to the girl's, right of Dean.She watched in awe at the care clearly shown along with relief on Dean's face having seen Sam. The girl guessed they were brothers.

Her heart constricted. She longed to have someone care for her that strongly, and someone she could return that care to.

Out of the corner of her right eye, she saw the dark-skinned man that tried to kill Sam – Jake – get up and make his way to Sam at a run. It wasn't until he was closer that she noticed the knife he held in his hand.

Her heartbeat sped up incredibly. Adrenaline raced through her body. She reacted on instinct, she had to protect Sam, he was the only true hearted she had ever seen. Running at a flat out sprint towards them, the roaring of blood in her ears was drowned out by the panicked yell of "Sam!" from Dean. She leapt towards Jake's middle.

Half way to colliding with Jake she felt as the invisibility fades so that she was revealed. She smashed into Jake barely a second before the knife would have gone through Sam's back. The power behind the collision sent the pair several feet away before they landed with the girl straddling Jake's chest with her hands either side of his head as his hands were flung back with enough force to break his hold of the knife, sending it flying to the girls left, causing it to be closer to Sam on the ground.

Dean watched in shock as the girl who appeared out of nowhere recovered quickly, jumping closer to himself, Sam and Bobby. As she jumped sideways, she rolled to grab the knife before regaining her footing. He watched as the girl stood in front of his little brother protectively. Seeing her protectively in front of Sam spurred him and Bobby into motion. Dean grabbed for Sam, supporting him and leading him to the car quickly. Bobby rushed past towards the girl with the knife to help her.

Bobby stood by the girl's side. He rested his hand on her shoulder, feeling how tensed she was. The knife was still outstretched in front of her as she glared at the dark-skinned man who just tried to hurt, possibly kill, one of the young men which he considered family. He lifted the gun with his left hand, pointing it at the head of the man in front of him. As he did this, he said to the girl."It's ok, Girl. He's goin' nowhere now."

The girl looked to her left, towards the oldest man, the one with the cap. She saw his gun pointed at Jake. The cap man, as she will call him till she learns his name, she decided. He still had his right hand rested on her left shoulder. She had a gut feeling he would protect her, so she let her guard down, allowing her terror to shine clearly in her eyes and her ghastly pale face to go from being blank to tear streaked fear and relief at not having to hide. She tossed the knife as far away from everyone as she could, using a bit of left over telekinesis she sensed from Sam in his panic, to send it further. Then she hid herself behind the cap man, clenching her fists around his jacket tightly and let her tears flow.

"I'm givin' you ten seconds ta run. Then I shoot." Bobby said to the dark-skinned man at the other end of his gun as he felt the young girls hands clenched round his jacket, as well as, her tremors of fear and relief at his back.

Jake was still confused as to where that young, pale, dark-haired girl came from, but understood he didn't have chance at surviving if he didn't use those ten seconds he had been given to run for his escape. He turned and ran as fast as his feet would carry him into the trees to get away from the man with the gun, and to stay alive. He still had hope he would see his mom and sister again, but he wouldn't if he was shot dead. So he ran for them.

Dean had just placed a freshly unconscious and injured Sam into the backseat of the car. He wanted to thank the mysterious girl for saving his brother, and perhaps beat the guy with the knife that was the reason for the girl having to save Sam till he was a bloody mess.

As Dean grew steadily closer to where he left the other three people, he noticed not all three were there. Bobby was holding a shaking and crying girl, while the person that tried to kill his brother was missing. He slowed to jog after noticing the would-be assassin was nowhere on sight. He started to make out what Bobby was saying to the hysterical girl.

"It's alright, Girly. Ya're safe now." He gently stroked her dark hair down and patted her back three times slowly before rubbing circles in between her shoulder blades. "That's it, let it all out."

As the girl calmed down, she pulled back from the cap man, and began to wipe furiously at her cheeks and eyes with hands in fists, almost like a baby would. She hiccupped occasionally. Bowing her head she noticed shoes of to her right. She raised her head slightly, and saw Dean through her lashes. He looked worried. And not just for Sam.

"I'm sorry. I don't know what came over me." She whispered hoarsely. Her voice cracked due to tears and lack of use.

Bobby and Dean felt as if their hearts broke. She was so young. They both thought to themselves. 'She's just a kid, she shouldn't be here.'Dean reached towards the broken girl, and gently pushed a lock of dark brown her behind her ear. She looked up at him through her eyelashes, and it was the most innocent look of confusion, hope and a need for love he had seen since him and Sam were just kids themselves, and Sam would ask where dad was at Christmas time.

Dean wrapped his arm around the girl's shoulders, giving her a half hug as he said, while leading her to the car; "Come on, sweetie. Let's get you somewhere warm, and something to eat."

Bobby took a quick look around their surroundings before following Dean and the unnamed girl back to the car and Sam.
