Straight Outta the Cage

By SPN_UntilDawn_Queen

Fantasy / Action

Chapter 1

P.O.V. Of Adam

My eyes popped open as I heard the morning battle cries of my noisy roommates. I sighed, knowing I'd be in for yet another day of the running from fire and other things. Hiding had become a daily thing for me. I was nineteen, but my roommates weren't the normal college roommates that could maybe get a bit irritating. They were Lucifer and Michael, angry siblings that would fight day after day. I was quite fearful of them and I had been in what was called Lucifer's cage for what felt like an eternity. I peered around the rocks I'd been sleeping behind and saw Lucifer in his old vessel he must have had before Sam and Michael in some poor sap I'd also never met. They were fighting each other with their supernatural powers. They would do nasty things to each other from making the other cough up blood to even cutting off each others limbs. At the end of each day, one of them would kill the other, but by the next day they would both be back at full health to do it all over again. Maybe dying in Lucifer's Cage for angels was impossible, but I wasn't sure about for humans and I sure as Hell wasn't going to test it out.

But as I watched the brothers tearing each other apart, something grew inside me... an anger and sadness that just exploded. Before I could stop myself, I was running out of my hiding spot and into their views.

"HEY! Luci, Mikki!" I spat. The two stopped to stare at me.

"What do you want Maggot?" Michael hissed.

"I want this to stop! You two are brothers! How can you just kill each other over and over?! YOU ARE FAMILY!"

"Once. We were family once." Michael's eyes burned into mine.

"You still are! You'll always be! Just like I'll always be Dean and Sam's brother." I had to work hard to keep my voice from quivering at the utterance of their names.

"He is right Michael. We-" Lucifer tried to step closer to Michael, but the archangel quickly threw him down.

"No. It doesn't matter. Let's see how you react when your brothers try to kill you." Michael said, snapping his finger. Dean and Sam appeared in front of me.

"Sam? Dean?" I questioned.

"Adam?!" Sam exclaimed. He ran towards me and I looked up at him as he put a hand on my shoulder. Dean joined him.

"Good to see you Adam." Dean murmured.

"You too..." I said carefully, feeling like this could be one of Michael's tricks. I was correct, because a blade appeared in Dean's hand and he attempted to stab me in the abdomen as Sam held me tight. I squirmed out of Sam's grip and jumped back at the last second. I ran, the fake Dean and Sam chasing after me as I ducked in and out of rocks. I got to one of my hiding spots and stopped to catch my breath, closing my eyes.

Oh God what was I thinking? Someone please come and save me... I'm begging... anyone...

I was about to look out from where I was when I got pinned to the rock. No one was in sight. But then Dean and Sam appeared with Michael following close behind.

"See? Not so easy now is it?" Michael asked.

"Go to Hell!" I growled. Michael looked around.

"Oh look. I'm already there." Michael looked at Dean and Sam. "Kill him."

I struggled against the rock and my brothers stalked closer. No, these weren't my brothers.

"No!" I shouted. I flinched away, trying to not watch as my brothers tore my heart out, physically and emotionally. But there was a blinding flash of light and when I looked, a short brunette man stood between me and my brothers. He flicked his hand to the side and the two went flying. The man smiled at Michael.

"You!" Michael hissed.

"Hey bro!" he grinned.

"How are you here!? How did you get-" Michael rose his hand to do something to the man, but was cut off by Lucifer's bellow.

"MICHAEL!" Lucifer appeared and jumped Michael with an angel blade, stabbing him in the chest. Michael lit up and fell to the stone floor.

"Bro... did you do that for me?" the man asked. Lucifer turned to him.

"I don't know how you're here or how you got here, but get the human and get out before I kill you again." Lucifer didn't look him directly in the eye and the man nodded. Then he came closer to me and looked up at me.

"Wow. You do look a lot like Sam and Dean." he greeted.

"Thanks...?"

"It's alright. I don't know if it's a compliment either." he said, touching my forehead.

When I opened my eyes we were in a dark, open area. I had no idea where, because it didn't look familiar at all.

"Crap. Wrong place. Oh well, we can book a night or two just to get you used to being above ground before we head off to visit... you alright kid?" he stopped mid-sentence when his eyes fell on me. I felt weak and shaky.

"I... I don't feel..." I collapsed, fainting on the spot. The last thing I saw was the darkening figure of my savior.

"Kid! Kid come on!" he cried out.
