Day Twenty-Three of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
I'm still on a John kick. It's funny, but the John ones have mostly come on their own, without planning on my part. Hmm -- maybe I'm haunted.  Anyway, here's my contribution to day 23 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration.

This one's for my friend originalcindyr .

The car was haunted.
He’d known it for a while, but he also knew that salt and fire weren’t required. There was no disembodied spirit trapped in the metal.
There were only memories and dreams, and he clung to them.
In the rearview, he saw tousle-haired Dean playing cars with Sammy in the back seat. From the corner of his mind’s eye, he saw Mary beside him, eight months pregnant, eating an ice cream cone and laughing about cravings. If he tried, he could almost put both scenes together, imagining his happy family in the car.
He’d never sell her.

I think -- I've been thinking about my Dad lately, so it's not that far a reach to bring up John. Of course, considering the Impala, it's never a far reach to bring up John ...

I'm sniffling for John again.

As I smile through my tears, my heart has been honored ... my soul has been touched.

Bless you my friend.

Your comment on yesterday's entry put the boys as boys in the back seat. I just took it from there ...

... and you did it most beautifully.

This is truly the best way to pass each day counting down to the 18th.

*hugs back*

I'm torn between desperately wanting 9/18 and wishing it would never get here so that your drabbles won't go away... I request you find a solution for me, Mary, because it's starting to stress me out in a potentially health-deteriorating way! **wink, wink, nudge, nudge**
*hugs the Impala tightly*

Hmm, I can't promise to keep up the "drabble a day" pace, but I can try to write more fanfic ...

Don't be torn! We'll be in transports once 9/18 arrives!!
