Day Thirty-Eight of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
We're coming to the end of the countdown!  Here's my contribution to day 38 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration.



********************************
The Gift
 
“Be gentle with her, Dean. Smooth and slow. Lift off the brake; now press the accelerator. Gently! That’s it. Keep her straight.”
 
Even with the seat pulled all the way forward, ten-year-old Dean could barely reach the pedals and see over the dash. The tip of his tongue protruded from the right side of his mouth, betraying the intensity of his concentration. He focused single-mindedly on getting everything exactly right, the same way he’d approached caring for Sammy and learning to shoot.
 
Watching Dean vibrating with delighted determination, John was humbly grateful that the best birthday presents sometimes were free.

**********************************
On an empty country lane in the middle of nowhere ... that's how I picture it, anyway!

I'm just gonna sit here and smile and enjoy the picture you have lovingly placed in my mind today of my favorite father and son.

Somehow, I just knew you'd quietly love this one ... so did I.

And he deserves it, too!

Some times, it's possible to really love John.

And I take every possible opportunity to indulge!

Well, enjoy this one to the max, because all the rest are going to demand tissues, I'm afraid ... I actually finished the rest of them tonight, so I know what's coming. Tomorrow is Bobby, Wednesday is Dean, and Thursday ... is Sam, all alone.

But right after that drabble will come the season four premiere, so the grimness of the drabble will hopefully be allayed by seeing the boys again!!

Ahhh happy days! Not a tissue in sight, thank you :)

Glad you enjoyed the break - it's going to be unremittingly dark from now until the season four premiere.

Uh, sorry?
