Straight Outta the Cage

Chapter 3

I wasn't sure how long I'd been alone for or when I had drifted off to sleep, but I found myself in a very vivid dream. Everything that was going on looked and felt so real. The dream was in first person, so it was like looking at it out of my own eyes. A middle aged blonde man was walking towards me and it was not until he got about two feet from me that I became fully aware of who it was. He was no longer bloody and destroyed.

"Lucifer." I heard a voice say. I was very surprised when I realized it was coming from the body I was seeing out of. My surprise turned to confusion as my next discovery was I was seeing out of someone else's eyes. But whose?

"You're alive too?" Lucifer asked.

"Yes. How are you here?" The voice answered. Why did it sound familiar? Who was it?

"You know Gabriel got the human out. He had to pop the cage open to do so. He forgot to close it."

"So you and Michael escaped?" the voice questioned. Lucifer nodded.

"What do you want with me?" it questioned again.

"You are looking for that human's half brothers... the Winchesters. So am I. Perhaps we can help each other." Lucifer smiled.

"Why would I help you?"

"Because I need to find the Winchesters before Michael."

"Why? So you can get Sam to agree to you first? This is over Lucifer." the voice said, annoyed.

"It's not over. We are back and we must finish what we started." Lucifer said.

"Even if that is true, what would make you think I would help you?"

"Because I do not know if Michael is going to try to get Dean to say yes or if he's going to go after your little boyfriend again." Lucifer's blue eyes seemed to bore into mine.

"He's not my boyfriend." the voice argued, even more annoyed. "And the Winchesters will just find a way to get you locked in the Cage, if not the both of you. This time, Adam stays out."

"You know you cannot fight fate little brother. Michael refuses to go down without a fight. Trust me, I tried." Lucifer replied.

"He's right." Came another familiar voice. I felt the person I was watching this from about to turn. He didn't get a chance to and this agonizingly real pain came over me. The guy looked down and I saw a bloody hand protruding from his lower abdomen. He looked back up at Lucifer, whose eyes were slightly wide.

"Michael!" He exclaimed, then the guy collapsed.

I woke with a start, jolting up in a cold sweat. I breathed heavily, my heart racing.

"Adam? You okay? What happened?" Gabriel appeared from the dark of the hotel room. A dull pain rested in my stomach and winced as I looked over at the archangel. It was then I remembered who that voice belonged to.

"Samandriel." I said weakly.

"What? What about him? He hasn't come back from his search for your- are you bleeding?" his voice went higher as he hurried closer to me. I looked down at my stomach region. Bright blood was soaking through my white t-shirt.

"Agh!" I hissed in pain.

"Wait, don't move." Gabriel told me, pressing his hand to my wound. I yelped in pain and Gabriel made a face.

"Maybe my powers have disappeared... I don't think I healed it. You are still in pain."

"You think?!" I asked angrily, fighting the urge to punch him in the face. He recoiled, then stared at me sort of awkwardly.

"Um... do you mind?" he asked, motioning to my shirt. I shook my head, gritting my teeth.

"Anything to stop the pain."

"Okay, take your shirt off." Gabriel ordered, then disappeared into the bathroom. I did as he asked, struggling to get the shirt off and not cause myself more discomfort. Finally, I got it off and tossed it to the floor with an irritated yell. Then Gabriel returned with a damp towel.

"Let me try to clean off some of the blood..." he said, beginning to work.

"I had a dream, Gabriel." I murmured, my eyes dancing dizzily across the ceiling.

"Uh huh."

"No really it was..." I trailed off as I noticed Gabriel had stopped working and was staring at my abdomen.

"There's no wound..." he said quietly. I followed his gaze. He was right. The archangel had cleaned off the blood, revealing my unharmed flesh. I looked up at him and saw he was staring at me.

"What did you dream about Adam?" he asked somewhat anxious.

"It was like I was seeing out of Samandriel's eyes..." I murmured.

"What happened?!" Gabriel pushed, his voice growing more and more frantic.

"Uh... I don't ... I can't remember..." I said.

"Come on Adam! It's important!" Gabriel grabbed my shoulders and shook me.

"Wait... what's going on?" I asked, confused.

"Samandriel's your guardian angel kid, he can make you see things he sees, feel things that he feels. It's a connection you two have now. You have to tell me what happened in your dream!" Gabriel explained. I tried to think. All the thoughts in my head were scrambled now and my mind was racing.

"I..."

"Adam. This could be life or death..." Gabriel whispered. I tried to go back into the dark depths of my brain, but not too far. I didn't want to poke at what I remembered from the Cage. Finally, something came to me.

"Uh... Lucifer. Lucifer was there." I remembered. I looked up at the archangel. He'd gone white.

"Did he hurt Samandriel?" Gabriel asked hurriedly. Before I could respond, there was a rush of air.

"No!" We turned to the voice and saw Lucifer with Samandriel in his arms.
