Chased

SPN100 Challenge, word: leg.

The boy could feel his heart punching against the ribcage like an animal trying to escape. His lungs were crying for air and still his skinny legs knew what to do, dodging rocks, jumping over mossy branches, zigzagging around shrubs like rabbits, knowing they were chased, and beneath the pain and fright there was wild joy and excitement.

Then something hit, hunter and prey falling to the ground intertwined.

"Gotcha!"

"I almost beat you this time."

"With those sticks? In your dreams, Sammy."

"Someday I'll be bigger and faster than you."

Dean smiled.

"I hope so, grasshopper."

And he did.
