Lonely Road of Faith - TYG

Title: Lonely Road of Faith (413 words plus a song quote)

Author: Bodgei

Series: Ten Years Gone

Parings: Sam/OFC

Declaimer: Sam Winchester isn’t mine, and none of his world is.  Lonely Road of Faith is a Kid Rock song.

Authors Notes: I don’t think you need to know anything about Ten Years Gone to get this, except to know that Sam and Dean are married to sisters.


This was written for the surprise challenge at [info]spn_het_love  it was supposed to be “touch”.  


Kate doesn’t come out to greet us when we come home from the Hunt.  I have to go looking for my wife.  Wife.  I never thought I would say that about anyone.  But then again I never thought I’d end up living on a dairy farm either. 


I find her at the big Victorian desk that she and I share in the ‘farm office’; it sits back to back with the desk that her sister Mare and my brother share.  Well they share it ‘in theory’ I don’t know that Dean has ever sat at it.   Kate has moved my work over so she can have the whole top for the huge check book for the farm.  She’s nodding in time to the music coming out of her poison green ear buds. 


I touch her hair, the music is way too loud for her to hear me, her dark hair is like silk.  I know that sounds stupid, but that’s what it feels like, or maybe cobwebs.  She turns slowly and kisses my hand.  I feel her touch.  I really feel it.  Her soft lips, warm and slightly moist. 


She stands and holds her arms out to me and I pull her close.  Jess was thin, but soft.  Kate is rounded, but hard from a lifetime of work and dancing.  She rocks against me in time to the music she’s listing to.  Her hands slip up under my shirt, calluses scratching against the skin of my back, reminding me that she is a girl who can take anything we could possibly put her through.  This girl who shoots rats with my brother.  She’s singing now.   


“And if you just hold on, I won’t let you fall – I won’t let you fall.  We can make it through the storms and the winds of change,” I feel it against my chest.  I feel her breath and the words themselves as they press into my skin.  Kate presses them there.   I feel her turn her head against my chest and kiss me through my shirt and we sway together in the office for a second before she slips one of her ear buds out and slips it into my ear, her fingers caress my jaw and her fingers send a feeling a bit like touching the electric fence through me. 


I may have loved other women, but I can’t imagine trading the touch of my Kate for any one of them.  


And if the wind blows east, would you follow me

And if the wind blows north, would ya stay your course

And if the wind blows west, would ya second guess

And if it blows to the south, would you count me out

And if the sun don't shine, would you still be mine

And if the sky turns grey, would you walk away

Would you say I do, if I say I'll be

And walk this road through life with me

You know I love you

I Finaly did that index I was working on! I couldn't find one story that I know of, "Walking Fence" I may have to repost it...sigh*

Thanks. I don't know if the 'touch' thing worked so well - but Kate is kinda multi media for Sam.

and, oddly enough, Kate is saying "let me take care of him, let him be sick or hurt so I can take care of him"

i don't like hurting them too much more than they already have been.....

And Kate isn't all that maternal - I mean other than when he was shot she's kinda like "Just don't puke in the bed, I'll put a trash can next to the bed if you can't make it"

She seems fine with takeing care of him when he is emotionaly broken - she'll spend days cuddling him if he's depressed and is just saying he's sick - cause he's a guy.

She's wierd. But I guess that's why they fit together.

Now she's telling me a story about going to see him at Stanford for christmas and him having the flu (and he so seems liek the kinda person who woudl get sick right after finals)
