Summary: Okay, not really Apathy but I always wondered why Sam didn't seem more guilt ridden at the end of 'Faith'. It just felt a little odd. Dean's a little out of character here but I think he'd be a little bit unerved by the fact someone died for him...


"I was trying to save you," Sam argued.

Dean didn't turn his head as he turned the key in the impala's ignition. He didn't want to discuss it any more. He just couldn't get the picture of that poor man out of his head.

"Dean please, I can't take you being angry about this."

Dean sighed. "I'm not angry with you. I'm angry with the whole freaking thing."

"Then why won't you talk to me?"

Dean sat back and finally looked at his brother. "Sam, we are supposed to save people not be the tools in which to kill them. That man died from the heart attack that was meant for me."

Sam swallowed hard. "You can't save everyone Dean."

"Sam, we didn't save anyone. We killed a person in order to save ourselves. We let that preacher's wife use us to kill an innocent person. I don't understand why you don't have any guilt about this!"

Sam smiled. He leaned in and with his lips inches away from Dean's he said: "Because no one else matters but you big brother."
