My Brother's Keeper: Ch 1"It's gonna be ok," Sam urged in whispered tones as he drew in tighter around the trembling bundle in his arms. Small fingers curled into the soft material of his t-shirt and he tried not to think about how dirty and grungy that t-shirt was honestly as he scooted further into the open sewer drain he was currently hiding in.

The afternoon sun was beating down on the weathered old street outside without so much as a single cloud in sight. Strange then that the power outage seemed to have affected the whole strip.
Dean looked up to find Sam giving him a meaningful if concerne
