It's been an... interesting few days for Lilly. She's hanging out at bar a little warily right now, and definitely not saying anything bad about her spouse(s).

There's some other things she's not thinking about, too.

It's funny how that works, sometimes. Sam's come to Milliways tonight partly to try to figure out a few things without triggering either Dean's or Bobby's suspicions.

He stops by the bar to pick up a beer-- but when it's served along with a letter, he picks that up first.

"Hey, Lilly." Sam tosses her a quick grin as he unfolds the paper.

"And I don't know, not too --"

As he speaks, he glances down at the letter, and his words die in his throat.

"... I have to find Jess."

He's already turning away, scanning the room.

That brings his attention right back to Lilly.

Fast.

"Just what the hell did you say to her?"

gavemea_45: (haunted)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
He starts to answer, then stops, instead looking down at the letter-- which is now crumpled in his hand.

Very deliberately, Sam starts smoothing it out, keeping his eyes on it.

It takes a moment, but then Sam looks up from the paper and meets her eyes.

"Yeah. Okay."

An uncomfortable beat.

"Sorry - it's just that --"

gavemea_45: (watch me)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
Sam makes sure to take the side with a better view of the room and the stairs, just in case.

"So."

gavemea_45: (haunted)

"Not really, no."

He takes the other shot glass, turning it around in his fingers.

"I don't just think it's my fault, Lilly."

Sam looks up and holds her gaze.

"It is my fault."

"No, I didn't kill her," Sam says, after a tense silence.

"She was murdered because of me, and she died right in front of me, but I didn't kill her. I just couldn't save her."

A beat.

"And I'm sorry about what happened to you, Lilly. Did they catch the guy?"

Date: 2008-04-08 04:07 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (looking down in darkness)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"You want to know why? Because they got in the way."

"...I know I'm not responsible for her afterlife," Sam says, after a moment.

It's all he's willing to admit.

"But I can't just not at least try to help--"

Date: 2008-04-08 04:30 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (take a moment)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
He's still frowning slightly, but he's listening.

"Logan-- your boyfriend?"

"Lilly..."

Sam looks awkward now, but determined all the same.

"It's not-- I mean, I know that, but -- I can't just abandon her--"

Date: 2008-04-09 03:34 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (haunted)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
He opens his mouth, then closes it again without saying anything.

The awful thing about it is-- she's right. Sam knows she's right. He's known since the beginning, and it's only gotten clearer over time.

"I'm gonna have to let go, won't I?"

"I think we're both gonna have to."


In silence, Sam reaches for the bottle of tequila. He pours a shot, downs it, then sets the glass on the table and looks back at Lilly.

"Sucks all around, doesn't it?"

Date: 2008-04-14 03:43 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (take a moment)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Is that what you were trying to tell her? That it doesn't have to suck?"

Date: 2008-04-15 04:05 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (worried)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"I don't know."

Sam looks down at the paper, then up at Lilly.

"It's, um. It's a goodbye letter."

Date: 2008-04-15 04:23 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (haunted)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
He doesn't say anything for some time.





"... you really don't think I can do anything to help her, do you."

Date: 2008-04-15 04:43 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (haunted)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
Sam nods.

Without meeting her eyes, he picks up Jess's note and shoves it in his jacket pocket.


"I, um." He glances up, finally. "I should probably get back."

Date: 2008-04-15 04:46 am (UTC)
gavemea_45: (from before and into now)
From: [personal profile] gavemea_45
"Sure."

He slides from his seat and stands up, then turns toward the door... and stops.



"Thanks."

That makes two of them.



The front door closes behind Sam with a quiet 'click.'
