GENRE: Gen
RATING: G
WARNINGS: Nope.
SPOILERS: Not really.

“What is the emergency?” Castiel asked as Dean invited him into the motel room. The hunter pointed at a young female seated at the foot of one of the beds.

“Her folks are on the way to pick her up, but Sam’s stuck at the police station trying to convince them we’re not kidnappers, and I need to go back him up. Can you watch her?”

“I-”

“Thanks, man!” Then he was gone.

“Tell me a story?” she asked. “No ghosts,” she added.

“Are you familiar with the story of the trespassing blonde child and the ursine family?”

“You’re weird.”

More fairy tale butchery...

A/N: This follows immediately after "How Not to Talk to Children."

“Do you know ‘Little Red Riding Hood?’” the girl asked hopefully.

“Yes. An allegory intended, I believe, to instill mistrust of unfamiliar adults.”

“Are you going to tell it all in big words like the last one?”

“My apologies,” Castiel said with a sigh. “I don’t notice the difference.”

“It’s okay.” The little girl patted his leg. “Little Red Riding Hood was kind of stupid, anyway. Couldn’t she tell it wasn’t her grandma?”

“Perhaps she needed corrective lenses? My primary issue with this tale is the ability of the wolf to speak. Surely this was atypical behavior?”

The girl shrugged.

Sam snorted as he entered the library. "Well, it's finally happened. You've lost your mind and become me."

"Shut up," Dean growled, turning the pages. "Blame Cas, he drove me to this."

"What did Cas do that's got you buried in the dictionary?"

"Said he found a whole channel of morality plays. So I'm lookin' up morality plays."

Sam nodded. "Tableaus that teach moral lessons through story. What kind of channel has those?"

"He said it was channel 124. I don't go up that high, I have no idea what that is."

Sam blinked. "........that's CMT."

"Son of a bitch...."
