and it's you and me
The Impala fit him a lot better than it fit Sam. There was just something about it that screamed Dean and watching him drive it, it was almost as like it was a part of him. He loved this car. Couldn't help but be a little jealous of it. Even though it was an inanimate object.
This had been the best birthday ever. Thinking back to all the subtle questions that Cordy had asked me or that everyone was rushing off and no one told me where they were going. It made a lot of sense now. At the time I thought I was paranoid thinking that it was me that they didn't want anything to do with. But, in fact, it was quite the opposite.
After my parents died I had no one until the Xander of my own world had come along. Even then it was more like he was stuck with me. After time I could tell that he cared a little about me but no where to the extent that he had cared about Buffy. This Xander, it was almost like he was the older brother that I had never had. Without all of the sibling rivalry bullshit and stuff like that.
I'd definitely been surprised tonight. Was surprised even more how into it everyone seemed to be but most of all I was surprised by Dean. Before he left to go get Sam it was like he wanted nothing to do with me because I had reminded him so much of the other me. Maybe while he was gone he was able to except me. Even if I was just a substitute for the original.
We were almost there and even though it was dark I could see the trees. Watched as Dean leaned forward and turned up Plant's Thank You. He was singing along to the words and I leaned back and listened. Didn't think that he'd be into a ballad like this but I smiled as we turned into a Camp Ground. We were going deeper and deeper into the forest. I didn't think there was anyone besides us staying at this camp ground.
We made it to a stop and he turned off the engine but left the lights on as we set up the tent. After that we gathered wood and made a fire in a pit that hadn't been used in a while. Once it was lit I sat down in the grass next to him and I leaned my head on his shoulder. "This was the perfect birthday."
