Life had been pretty quiet over at the Milligan-Winchester abode over the past few weeks. Adam had turned to his studies and his internship at the hospital with incredible fury. It was something he didn't think he would ever get to do again, and it was only the memory of his mother that pushed him forward in this quest. If this really was his second chance, if he could actually have the type of life his mother always wanted for him, then Adam could consider himself a success. It didn't matter that in some other universe he was roasting away in the pits of hell. And while that thought still woke him up at night in cold sweats, for the most part, he was able to push it away and focus on his studies.
Lately, even Sam was looking a bit more upbeat than usual. He seemed almost carefree and excitable. Adam didn't know what was the cause, but he had a feeling it was Gretel's influence on him. And that was a good enough reason for Adam. Hell, both of his brothers had been through a world of pain and suffering. They deserved to be happy, even if this was a fake universe of sorts. In some way, they were all being given a second chance at life, and he was glad that at least Sam was taking up the offer. Now, it was Dean that worried him. He knew his brother had a problem with that Mark, something he eventually grew to understand.
A lot of things had been explained to him over the past few weeks, and apart from his regular college studies, Adam was also learning how to use a gun. He practiced with Sam and also learned as much as he could about hunting and monsters. Not that he ever thought he would need it, but it never hurt to be prepared, right? It gave him an excuse to blow off some steam if he was ever feeling anxious about his future in Hell, and it made him feel stronger, like he could protect himself better now instead of letting himself get taken over by whatever supernatural creature had a taste for him. And with Ruby running around, there was no telling when he would need to put those new skills to good use.
All that aside, Adam realized it was time to emerge from the ashes of his home and his studies. He had to get out into the world and actually live while he still had the chance. So, despite it being a bit of a crazy idea, he enlisted the help of Sam, and they were off looking for a car for their older brother. That would go off pretty normally, wouldn't it?
