Lilly's given her staff a day off and is lounging on the couch under the pretense of doing work, but really hiding from her children. There is paperwork and a drink nearby, but... well. She's hardly in danger of overdoing it.

When he shows up at the brothel door, Sam looks incredibly awkward, but still determined.

"Um. Lilly? You around?"

Date: 2008-01-09 04:10 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (you did not just say that)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Of course," Sam mutters, more to himself than anyone else. "The brothel side, right."

He steps in and glances around.

gavemea_45: (you have got to be kidding me)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"No! No, that's not-- that's okay, really," he says, hastily.

Very hastily.

"I was looking for you."

Date: 2008-01-09 06:20 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (give me a break)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"... yeah, okay, that's not why. Sorry."

Sam's looking now even more like he'd really rather be somewhere else, but instead he lets out a short, sharp breath, looks down at the floor, then back up at her.

"I wanted to say thanks, first. And then to ask you something."

Date: 2008-01-09 06:44 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (brothers - nothing's wrong)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Yeah, that. It, um."

Silence. He's not exactly meeting her eyes.

"It helped. I don't know, maybe-- it could be that-- if you hadn't--"



"Anyway, I owe you. A lot."

gavemea_45: (hm?)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
He darts a quick look at her, and whatever he sees is evidently enough for him to leave it at that.

"Okay."

A beat, and then,

"You know, as long as you don't take it as solicitation or whatever, I could buy you that drink after all."

"Fair."

He looks around and spots the bar, then heads over, calling back over his shoulder,

"What do you want?"

Date: 2008-01-10 05:03 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (you did not just say that)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"... right."

It doesn't take him long to find the pitcher, the ice, and two glasses. Sam walks back and hands one to Lilly, then takes a drink of his own--

--and promptly makes an odd face.

Date: 2008-01-10 05:38 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (simple prayer to sail her by)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Yeah. Um. About that."

Sam goes silent for a second.

Several seconds, in fact.




"I, um. Hear you have some sort of thing with dreams."

gavemea_45: (brothers - nothing's wrong)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Yeah, Dean told me."

Unconsciously, he squares his shoulders as if bracing for a blow, then meets her eyes.

"He said he told you a few things, too."

Date: 2008-01-13 04:55 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (find us in another place)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Stick with creepy," Sam advises.

A beat.

"It's close enough."

Date: 2008-01-13 05:31 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (looking down in darkness)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
The look he gives her is more than a little guarded.

"Yeah."

By the time she finishes, Sam's shaking his head.

"See, no, I don't think you do."

There's no animosity in his tone, although there is frustration, and something else.

Something a lot like despair.

He grits out, "This wasn't -- you know what, I shouldn't have come. Sorry to bother you."

Sam turns away and takes two steps before stopping. He's staring at the floor; there's tension in the line of his shoulders, as though he's struggling with himself.

A few seconds pass.



"It's not just dreams, Lilly. That's the thing."

Slowly, Sam turns back around and forces himself to meet her eyes again.

"It's more than that." A beat. "Dean won't admit it, but there's something wrong with me."

Date: 2008-02-15 01:34 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (haunted)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Yeah."

It's a little too level. Sam's standing very still, watching her steadily.

"They got in the way... my plans for you, Sammy. You, and all the children like you."

"Dreams. Nightmares. Visions."

A beat.

"Sometimes they come true."

Date: 2008-02-17 04:57 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (take a moment)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
Strangely enough, the tension around him eases up on hearing this.

"... yeah. Yeah, it is."

Date: 2008-02-17 05:13 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (brothers - there's tension in the air)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"I've gotta say, I don't know how it'd work either. But ... I'm not going to turn down the help, if you want."

There's a very wry twist to Sam's sudden small smile.

"That's, um. Kinda why Dean and I started trying to get back to this place again after our first few times here, a while ago."

Date: 2008-02-17 06:04 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (the edges fade to black)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"I haven't here yet, come to think of it."

He looks a little surprised at this realization.

"Nightmares, yeah, but not -- not the other."

Date: 2008-02-17 06:36 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (easy-to-trust smile (the suit helps))
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"It's something, anyway."

Sam gives her a little grin.

"Thanks."
