Summary: Sam's only been himself again for a few months when an old enemy threatens to end his life for good. Can he trust Dean to save him, or is it better to just let go?

Reccer's notes:Yet another way the tension between the boys could have been resolved…Sam’s thoughts are wrenching to experience, and what Dean does is heart-breaking.

[Short excerpt] Sam watches the waves for a while, slowly advancing with the tide, crashing farther and farther up the rocky beach. When he checks his watch again, he sees four hours are left. He pulls his phone out of his pocket and looks at it for at least the fifth time since Abaddon and her henchmen left. He hasn't spoken to Dean since kicking out Gadreel two months ago. Calling him to tell him his little brother's about to die, and there's really, truly, nothing he can do about it, is more than a little cruel.

But keeping silent is also going to keep Sam safe, just in case there is something Dean can do about it. "Not this time," he says quietly, pocketing the phone. The price of his life has been too high, too many times. It's going to end here.
