Dean heard the growl before Sam did. He jumped in front of Sam as a black dog leaped towards them, jaws open. Dean's raised arms protected his face, but the creature bit his exposed side as they toppled over.

"DEAN!" Sam yelled, firing point-blank at the black dog. He pushed the dead dog away from Dean with his boot, then knelt by his brother. "Y'okay?" Sam yanked open Dean's bloodied jacket.


Sam extracted a field bandage from the medi-kit in the weapons bag he'd been toting. "You will be," Sam bandaged Dean's wound, then patted his stomach. "Let's go."

A/N: Taking a small step towards my New Year's resolution to organize things. From now on, my drabbles will be posted by chapter under one title: Drabbles 101. (This is, not coincidentally, my 101st story posted here.) The Stanford drabbles will continue to be posted under A Door Opens, whenever the challenge word fits;)
