How You Grow Up

The Beginning

1983...

Dean and Angie raced through the house to get outside! They always did this, every day. Dean beat Angie there by a one second. "Ha! I win again! "Dean boasted as they recovered from the exertion. "That isn't even fair! Your legs are longer!" Angie argued, it was this way almost every time. Dean almost always beat Angie…almost.

"Come on, we have a game to finish." They bolted outside to continue their game of tag from earlier (Dean had to help his dad with something so Angie sat and talked to Mrs. Winchester) Angie tackled Dean to the ground "Got you! Your it!" She scrambled off of him jumping out of his reach before he could touch her. He chased her around the tree and all the way around the yard until he finally got to her. They were both laughing so hard by the end that they could hardly breathe! "Dean?" Angie said from her spot on the ground where they were now lying calmly looking up to the sky. "Yeah?" He noticed she had that thoughtful expression on her face…"Do you think will always be friends?" Dean thought a second before bluntly replying "No." Angie snapped her head towards him with this hurt look that he almost felt bad about, but he continued. "I think will always be best friends." He gave her a bright smile before she returned it she nudged him sharply with her elbow. "Hey! What was that for?" "Don't scare me like that!" They both laughed slightly before continuing to look at the clouds.

They stayed like that until Dean's mom came out and told them lunch was ready. They quickly got up and scurried to the kitchen table. (They both really liked Mrs. Winchesters sandwiches) They both took their usual seats before Mrs. Winchester came over and set their assigned sandwiches down. "Alright turkey and salami for Dean and ham for Angie." She smoothed back Angie's hair as she sat the sandwich down. "Did you give my son a run for his money during tag?" Mrs. Winchester asked Angie as she walked back to the kitchen. Angie smiled brightly at this joke that had become a bit of a usual thing at lunch...and sometimes dinner. (Angie was at the house a lot) "You betcha Mrs. Winchester." The two laughed while Dean commented on how he could still beat her any day at racing.

It was about that time when Mr. Winchester came down the stairs with an adorable Sam in his arms. He went into the kitchen giving Mrs. Winchester a kiss before sitting the baby in his booster seat at the table. "How are my three other favorite people in the world?" He came over patting both Angie and Dean's heads before plopping down next to them. "Did your parents have to work again Angie?" She gave him a nod before replying "Yeah, I don't really mind though. You guys are my family too."

They weren't technically related but Angie had pretty much become a permanent member of the Winchester household. Her and Dean both went to Kindergarten together and became almost instant friends, they had been inseparable. She lived right next door and came over whenever she could (which was basically every day). It was basically the same thing at the other house too. Dean had basically become a son and brother to the Lanes family. John smiled at her response telling her how she was basically his daughter anyway.

They ate their dinner in pleasant conversation that never ceased to end (both Angie and Dean were chatter boxes). Once they were finished Dean turned to his parents excitedly "Could me and Angie go outside and look at the stars! Please!" His parents smiled at him before looking at Angie who was doing the exact same thing "Alright but make sure that you take Angie home when you're finished." They both jumped up and ran outside after thanking her for the food. They grabbed the blanket they always grabbed (a superhero blanket) and laid it out across the grass right next to the tree. They situated themselves the same way as always, Angie on the left and Dean on the right. They would both grab each other's hand and give it a light squeeze to see who found the first constellation.

They waited in intense concentration before Angie felt Dean lightly squeeze her hand "Found Orion's belt!" Angie smiled at him for being so excited before focusing once again on the stars. This time Dean felt the squeeze "There's Gemini!" "Do you remember the story Mrs. Waltz told us about it?" Angie nodded thinking back to the fond memory. She loved mythology as did Dean.

"They are the brothers Castor and Pollux. Their mothers name is Leda and they had a sister named Helen. They had different dads though…you finish." Dean smiled knowing Angie loved to hear the ends, she didn't really like to tell them. "Pollux was immortal while Castor was not. They went off to find the magical fleece (Dean made sure to use exaggeration in his voice since he knew Angie loved it so much) they then went to fight in the Trojan war so they could bring their sister back to her husband so they could once again be reunited. (Hey, Dean may not be into the mushy stuff but Angie was. He would put up with it for her.) At some point Castor died and Pollux was so overcome with grief and sorrow that he begged for his brother to gain immortality so that they would always be together. His wish was granted and they were reunited in heaven and we now see them as the stars next to each other…the end." Angie curled up next to Dean so that her head was right next to his shoulder. He allowed himself to curl up next to her as well.

"I hope you, me and Sam are like that when we're older." Angie smiled at this. "But I'm not your brother." Dean shrugged (being careful to use his other shoulder so he wouldn't nudge Angie) "That doesn't matter. I just hope were all close." Angie took a second before replying "We will be."
