Dean stared at the lifeless reflection in the mirror.
They said it was normal. They said the pain would eventually fade.
But they were wrong. The doctors didn't know nothing. The stupid exit counselors they'd forced on him didn't get it. Hell, even Sammy couldn't understand.
This wasn't just pain. It was something more, something sinister, something that crept through him, eating away at the fringes of whatever was left of his soul. It spread like a cancer, through his blood, his bones, pulsing just beneath his skin, as it consumed him whole.
Soon, there would be nothing left. He could feel himself slipping and the worst part was he didn't even care.
All he was left with was a shell, an empty husk staring back at him through the glass, waiting for the day death finally caught up with him.
Until then, he would deal with the surging numbness the only way he knew how.
He'd keep hunting.
