Summary: Sam and Dean watch a fireworks show.
Sam sat on the old, worn blanket looking up into the darkened night sky. A few stars twinkled down at him, as his eyes darted from one to the other. He watched and waited. Anticipation ran through his body and he inched himself closer to Dean until their thighs were pressed together. He felt Dean knocking his shoulder against his and peeked up at him to see Dean smiling at him. He returned the smile and then a loud whistling sound caught his attention, forcing him to take his eyes off his older brother as he looked up to see a white light shooting straight up into the sky. Instinctively, he reached out and grabbed onto Dean’s hand and held his breath as he waited to see what would happen next. He jumped when the black sky exploded into shimmering white light seeming to cascaded down over them.
“Wow!” he breathed out in awe, his hazel eyes darting around as he watched the sparkling light begin to disappear.
“Pretty cool, huh?” Dean comment, not taking his eyes off the sky, waiting for the next firework to go off.
“Yeah,” he whispered and then he felt Dean tugging at him, pulling him to lay down.
“Come on, lay down. It’s even better like this,” Dean explained as he lowered himself onto his back.
Following Dean’s lead, he lay prone, looking up into the sky as another firework shot up with a loud bang and exploded overhead into multicolored lights that scattered off into different directions before fading away.
“Is there more?” Sam asked quietly, not wanting to ruin the moment.
“Yeah, Sammy, they’re just getting started,” Dean responded in a hushed tone as he turned to look at Sam and smiled at the look of awe on his face at seeing fireworks for the first time. If their dad found out that he had snuck out of their motel room, with Sam, to watch the fireworks, he knew he’d catch hell. But their dad was off on a hunt and wouldn’t be back for a few days. What he didn’t know, wouldn’t hurt them, and as far as he was concerned, Sam deserved to watch the fireworks like a normal kid.
