Being a husband was turning out to be more of a challenge than Dean had expected it might, and the challenges were coming far sooner than he had ever expected they might. In one swoop, ABC, Nathan, Heidi and their sons were gone, and though the notion of so many people closely related just disappearing was unsettling, the one thing that Dean DID know, the thing that Claire herself had taught him, was that you had to focus more on the victories, on taking each day at a time. Right now, his sister, Megan Winchester, was being brought into the world, and Dean wanted Claire to go with him and Ben to meet the baby when she arrived.
At the moment, though, Claire didn't look capable of even being near the people who loved her , much less enjoying something that should be a victory like adding to their numbers. He frowned at the door of the room where she had been holed up for hours, a decision slowly turning in his head. He could go alone, or with Ben, and make excuses for Claire not coming, or he could practice some tough love. It might backfire, or the slight shock to her senses might be just what Claire needed all along. His shoulders setting in determination that was normally only seen on a hunt, Dean walked into the room and looked down at her, careful to keep any hint of flexibility from his voice and his face.
“Come on, Claire. Get dressed, it's time to get out of here.”
