Hollow

Title: Hollow
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating/Pairing: PG, gen
Summary: Double-drabble tagfic for 4x21: Dean, after.




By the time Dean gets back, he feels completely empty inside, and numb. It doesn't hurt any more. Any of it.

Bobby takes one look at his face, and sees too much. "Dammit, Dean," he says, but it's more exhausted than angry.

"I tried to get him back," Dean says. His voice sounds as hollow as he feels. "He's too far gone." And, unspoken: I let him get that way. I failed.

"It's not your fault," Bobby says.

Dean explodes: "He was my brother!" There's a moment of brittle silence, and the was hangs between them.

"He still is," Bobby says finally, quietly.

"Is he? Really? Can you honestly tell me he's been himself since--" Since hell, but he can't say it. Dean shrugs. "Both of us died last summer. Difference is, I came back."

Bobby's expression is a strange cross between furious and sympathetic. "Dean. You can't blame yourself for--"

"Yes," Dean interrupts, the word slicing like a knife through Bobby's platitudes. "I can." He takes a breath and lets it out slowly. "And I'm going to fix it."

"How?"

Dean looks at him with a blank, hollow expression. "I'm a hunter," he says finally. "It's what I do."
