Day Thirty-Two of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
And -- here are another 100 words, my contribution to day 32 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration ...



**********************************
Rosetta Stone
 
He’d often joked with Sam that she spoke to him.
 
Dad started teaching him her language when he was still little, but he’d picked up most of it on his own. The split-second hesitation that meant her transmission needed attention, the ghost of a stutter that called for a tune-up, the slight change in pitch asking for a new muffler or exhaust pipe – he knew them all. Every change in shift, steering, or pedal response was part of their dialogue. He felt her.
 
Mechanical aptitude aside, he wondered whether he could teach Sam to listen to her with his heart.

A boy & his best girl.

Thanks. I so saw Dean not only trying to make certain that something he loved would be well kept, but that Sam would still have something of him close by to hold on to ... (speaking of which, I think I know what I'm going to write for the last day ...)

Seeing as how these boys talk from the heart without really using words, I can definitely hope that eventually Sam would learn to HEAR her talking.

But he would never truly FEEL her talking.

Some things just can't be learned.

Cindy, I do think you're right!

A very haunting bunch of words. Dean's girl and his brother. I can understand why he'd want Sam to be able to listen to her - to me at least, Dean wants Sam to be as much a part of his life as he possibly can. I want to cry. :0 Lovely. :)

Thank you! I see Dean not just wanting to know that something he loved will be well cared for, but that his brother will still have an avatar of him still close by to hold on to ...
