Hey guys! So, about a year or two ago I read this fanfic on FF.net and I’ve been looking for it for a few months now to read again but I can’t find it. Here’s what I remember:
Teen Sam and Dean.
Dean was hurt on a previous hunt, something is wrong with his leg (I don’t remember if is a broken ankle or something like that), he has a few broken ribs among other things and John needs to hunt again, so instead of waiting for Dean to get better, he decides to leave Dean alone in this house that it’s falling apart (it’s what he could afford for) to heal and takes Sam to hunt with him. Sam gets angry at his dad for leaving Dean alone in such a state, but goes with his father anyway.
After they leave, even being injured Dean does what he can to leave the house in a better state, cleaning it up and fixing a few things – even though in a lot of pain. After that, he feels even worse and tries to rest. No long after, a couple of thug teenagers enter the house and beat Dean up, leaving him in a really bad state and with even more broken bones. I’m not sure how he managed to ask for help, but bottom line Bobby and Caleb are made aware he’s hurt and Caleb run to help his friend.
Caleb is horrified to find Dean in the trepid house bleeding out and with the teenagers still beating him. He makes sure the teenagers won’t hit his friend anymore and then I don’t remember if he calls an ambulance or if he takes Dean himself to the hospital, but when he gets there Pastor Jim calls to say that he found John and Sam hurt and that a helicopter it’s taking them to the same hospital Caleb just got in with Dean.
Things go down hill for Dean from there, because although John and Sam aren’t that bad and are expected to make a full recovery, Dean is really bad off, and when he finds out, John feels guilty for what he put his two sons through.
There is a point when the adults have to send Sam home to rest properly after being discharged, and even with him refusing to leave his brother, they still manage to take him.
Sam has a nightmare, and so does Dean. While John consoles Dean in his arms on the hospital bed, Bobby decides to take Sam to the hospital to give both kids some peace of mind. But when he gets there, the night guard on Dean’s hospital door refuses to let Sam in while Sam cries out for Dean, and hearing his brother’s distress, Dean takes off his ventilator before John can stop him, and throws up blood – leaving the men in the hospital room livid.
Dean’s doctor helps him, and says that he hurt his throat, so they can’t put the ventilator back, but the teen seems to be doing well enough to go on without the equipment.
After that, they don’t try to separate the boys anymore, and even in ICU Sam in allowed to visit his brother. From there, they get progressively better with the help of Bobby, Caleb and Pastor Jim.
I think I found this story in a community of fanfiction.net, but I’m not sure. I looked on a few and did research on google but couldn’t find it again.
