First Encounter

SPN100 challenge, word: sour

Summary: It's not always easy to save your brother from trouble. Pre-series.

A/N: It's been a time, guys. Trying to flex my fingers and get a grip again

"Balls". The stranger started chuckling, bending down.

"It's 'uncle Bobby' for you, kiddo. Anyone in for some burgers?"

Suddenly the house felt warm.
