Day Eight of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
 Inspired by an event during the Ride Home (see my motorcycle diaries elsewhere in my LJ), here is yet another 100-word drabble for today's 41 Days of Metallicar post.

And I don't care WHAT idiotic MS Word says:  an ellipsis (that's the "..." thingie) does NOT count as a word in my book!

“What could it hurt, John?”
“No offense, Padre, but I’m not much of a believer. Not any more.”
Jim just smiled. They’d stayed with him for a week while John learned more about the evils that hid beneath the surface of the world. The peace Jim exuded affected them all; Sammy was sleeping better, and while Dean was still silent, his eyes had regained a little sparkle. For the first time since Mary died, John felt less … stretched. He sighed.
“Go ahead.”
Jim sprinkled the hood with holy water.
“Oh Lord, bless this car and those who ride in her …”

ROTFLMAO! Okay, I don't know that this one was supposed to elicit such a response (especially since I read backwards, and thus Sam's prank first), but OMG! Very nice contrast between the ambiance and "action," Mary. It almost makes me want to forgive Toady for the fanfic that you wrote to "make her cry." BTW, I particularly LOVED the first installment too (ah, Dean...). Looking forward to another twenty some-odd days of your tributes.

Great to see you, and glad you've been enjoying the drabbles, in whatever order! They've been a fun challenge to write; 100 words make for a very odd discipline. I hope that I can keep them up; I really want to!
