Damaris watched alongside Dean, watching Sam pretending to be drunk and playing pool with a man. Her arms were crossed as she tried to figure out the point of doing such a thing.
"Brian, come on, man, just one more. Just - just give me a chance to win it back." Sam pleaded, trying to get the man to continue playing.
"It's your cash."
"Excuse me. My brother's a little sauced to be making bets." Dean said coming up to where Sam was.
"Yeah, but you've already taken, what, two bills off him? I'm just saying."
"Hey, shut up, Dean. I'm fine." Sam said as he looked at his brother.
"No, you're not fine. You're drunk!"
"Let's make it five hundred."
"Sure." Brian said with a shrug of his shoulders.
Sam put the money down onto the pool table.
"Five hundred. Your break."
While Brian looked down, Sam raised his eyebrows at Dean. For a second there is no trace of drunkenness.
Dean raised his brows at Sam.
Sam then broke, sinking several balls, then saw Ruby across the bar. "Keep the money." Sam put the cue down on the pool table and walked towards Ruby.
"Keep the money? What -" Dean suddenly followed Sam, noticing the look on Damaris' face knowing that it wasn't a good sign.
"Hey." Sam said softly to Ruby.
"Well, you got a lot of nerve showing up anywhere near me." Dean said, narrowing his eyes.
Damaris narrowed her eyes as Dean kept his hand out, keeping Damaris back from attacking Ruby.
"I just have some info, and then I'm gone." Ruby said, looking at them.
"What is it?" Sam questioned looking at Ruby.
"I'm hearing a few whispers."
"Ooh, great, demon whisperers - that's reliable."
"Girl named Anna Milton escaped from a locked ward yesterday. The demons seem pretty keen on finding her. Apparently, some real heavy hitters turned out for the Easter-egg hunt."
"Why? Who is she?"
"No idea. But I'm thinking that she's important, 'cause the order is to capture her alive. I just figured that whatever the deal is, you might want to find this girl before the demons do."
"Look, maybe we should check it out."
Dean looked at his brother like he had gone insane. "Actually, we're working a case, but thanks."
"Uh, we've got leads, big leads."
"Yeah, well, it sure ain't goose-chasing after some chick who, for all we know, doesn't even exist, just because you say she's important."
"I'm just delivering the news. You can do whatever you want with it. Far as I'm concerned, I told you, I'm done."
"Wait, wait, wait. This hospital Anna escaped from - it got a name?" Sam questioned softly.
Damaris looked out the window with a look of irritation on her face as Sam was on the phone and Dean was driving to the place where they were going to see if they could find Anna.
"Can I get a copy of the missing persons report? Great. Okay. Thanks." Sam hung up his phone. "Well, Anna Milton's definitely real."
"Don't mean the case is real. And this hospital's a three-day drive." Dean said, letting out a scoff.
"We've driven further for less, Dean. [ DEAN shakes his head ] You got something to say, say it."
"Oh, I'm saying it - this sucks."
"You're not pissed we're going after the girl. You're pissed Ruby threw us the tip."
"Right. 'Cause as far as you're concerned, the hell-bitch is practically family. Yeah, boy, something major must've happened while I downstairs, 'cause I come back, and - and you're BFF with a demon?"
"I told you, Dean, she helped me go after Lilith."
"Well, thanks for the thumbnail - real vivid. You want to fill in a little detail?"
"Sure, Dean, let's trade stories. You first. How was Hell? Don't spare the details."
"How about you two knock it off. I can't believe that I'm going on something that a demon says… and Anna Milton…" Damaris pursed her lips in thought. "The name doesn't even ring a bell for me."
Dean looked back at Damaris and saw the worried look on her face. "You're certain."
"I know all names… that's what is so concerning… there is supposed to be no Anna Milton."
Dean let out a breath as he knocked on the door. "Maybe they're not home."
"Both cars in the driveway."
Dean tried the door and it was unlocked. The three of them entered the house. "Mr. And Mrs. Milton?"
"We're from the sheriff's department. We just wanted to ask you a couple of questions."
They stopped when they saw two bodies on the floor dead. Their throats had been cut.
Sam kneeled down and checked some powder that was on the floor near the bodies. "Sulfur. The demons beat us here. Whatever the deal is with this Anna girl -"
"Yeah, they want her. They're not screwing around. All right, so, I'm "Girl, Interrupted," [ DEAN picks up some addressed envelopes ] and I know the score of the apocalypse, just busted out of the nut-box... Possibly using superpowers, by the way. Where do I go?"
Sam looked at the family photos and picked one up. "Hey, you got those sketches from Anna's notebook?"
"Let me see 'em. Check this out." Sam picked out a drawing of a stained-glass window.
"She was drawing the window of her church."
"Over and over. If you were religious, scared, and had demons on your ass, where would you go to feel safe?"
Sam, Dean, and Damaris entered the attack of the church with guns and angel blade drawn.
"Dean." Sam pointed with his gun towards the person that was hiding. "Anna?"
The three of them put their weapons away.
"We're not gonna hurt you. We're here to help. My name is Sam. This is my brother, Dean. And our friend Damaris."
"Sam? Not Sam Winchester?" Anna questioned softly looking at him.
"And you're Dean. The Dean?"
"Well, yeah. The Dean, I guess."
"It's really you. Oh, my god. The angels talk about you. You were in Hell, but Castiel pulled you out, and some of them think you can help save us. And some of them don't like you at all." She looked at Sam. "They talk about you all the time lately. I feel like I know you."
"So, you talk to angels?" Dean questioned his brows raising as he looked at her slightly confused.
"Oh, no. No, no way. Um, they probably don't even know I exist. I just kind of... overhear them."
"You overhear them?" Sam questioned, confused.
"Yeah, they talk, and sometimes I just... hear them in my head."
"Angel Radio." Damaris said, looking at Anna.
"Like... right now?" Dean questioned hoping that the Angels weren't talking about them at the moment.
"Not right this second, but a lot. And I can't shut them out, there are so many of them."
"So, they lock you up with a case of the crazies when really you were just... tuning in to angel radio?"
"Yes. Thank you."
"Anna, when did the voices start? Do you remember?" Sam questioned hoping that she would be able to give some sort of answer to them by wondering how long the voices had been going on.
"I can tell you exactly - September 18th."
"The day I got out of Hell."
"First words I heard, clear as a bell - "Dean Winchester is saved.""
"What do you think?"
"It's above my pay grade, man." Sam said letting out a breath shaking his head.
Damaris pursed her lips together as she looked at Anna with her brows slightly raised.
"Well, at least now we know why the demons want you so bad. They get a hold of you, they can hear everything the other side's cooking. You're 1-900-angel."
"Hey, um, do you know - are my parents okay? I - I didn't go home. I was afraid." Anna questioned softly causing the three of them to go very silent.
Ruby suddenly came into the attic in a rush.
Damaris let out a groan narrowing her eyes at the demon that came busting into the room.
"You got the girl. Good, let's go."
"Her face!" Anna said, hiding herself behind Damaris gripping the women's beige coat.
"It's okay. She's here to help." Sam said softly trying to get Anna to calm down.
"Yeah, don't be so sure." Dean said, rolling his eyes.
"We have to hurry."
"Because a demon's coming - big-timer. We can fight later, Dean."
Damaris's hand went to where her angel blade was.
"Well, that's pretty convenient - showing up right when we find the girl with some bigwig on your tail?"
"I didn't bring him here. You did."
"He followed you from the girl's house. We got to go now."
"Dean." Sam said softly pointing to a statue that was bleeding from the eyes.
"It's too late. He's here."
Damaris took Anna carefully by the arm and quickly hid her into the closet. "Alright. Stay here. Don't move until we tell you it is safe to come out."
Anna's hands shook a little and nodded her head weakly. "Okay." She said softly.
Damaris slowly closed the door and turned her attention to the group. She saw Sam pull out a flask of holy water.
"No, Sam, you got to pull him right away." Ruby said, shaking her head.
"Whoa, hold on a sec." Dean snapped looking at Ruby with narrowed eyes.
"Now's not the time to bellyache about Sam going to the darkside. He does his thing, he exorcises that demon, or we die."
Sam put his flask away again.
Suddenly the demon entered the room and Sam tried to exorcise him, but it didn't work. "That tickles. You don't have the juice to take me on, Sam." He threw Sam down the stairs.
Dean attacked him with Ruby's knife and the demon won their fight.
"Hello again, Dean."
Damaris quickly moved to where Ruby was as she pulled Anna out of the closet. "Oh you've got to be kidding me."
"We don't have time for this."
"Says the demon harlot that pretty much brought Alastair here."
"You know him?"
"I know most demons… and he's not the kindest one to mess with… but not impossible to defeat." Damaris looked at Anna and then let out a breath gripping the two of them. "Steady your feet."
"Wait what?" Anna questioned looking up at Damaris with wide eyes.
In a flutter of wings the three of them vanished from the church and landed in a cabin.
Damaris landed hard on her knees panting softly.
Ruby's brows raised as she looked at Damaris. "You can do that?"
"Yes… a perk of being an angel." Damaris said, looking up at Ruby shakily getting up to her feet. "Bad thing is I haven't taken too many people with me before to go the distance as far as I did."
Anna hugged Damaris. "Thank you."
Damaris nodded her head weakly. She then turned her attention to Ruby. "Think you can bring the boys here? At least let them know where we are and tell them to ditch the car at the motel for now…"
Ruby nodded her head. "You got it."
Anna looked at Damaris biting her lower lip softly. "You're different from the other angels."
Damaris let out a soft chuckle. "Of course I am." She said softly as she rested on one of the chairs. "I've been on Earth for a little longer than I care to admit, and I've grown accustomed to the things here than in heaven."
Anna nodded her head softly. "Do you know why the demons are after me?" She asked softly.
Damaris let out a soft breath. "Honestly, I'm not fully sure of why they are after you. Just because you can hear what the angels are saying doesn't mean that is something that they would fully want to know…" Damaris trailed off in thought.
"You think there is something don't you?"
Damaris rubbed her temples. "I don't know why demons would want to know where the angels are unless there is something much much deeper than what my own brothers are telling me…"
Anna nodded her head weakly knowing that this wasn't a good sign if another angel who had saved her life didn't know what to think of what was going on.
Ruby's head shot up when she saw Sam and Dean come into the cabin. "Glad you could make it."
"Yeah, thanks." Sam said softly before turning his attention to Anna. "Anna, are you okay?"
"Yeah. I think so. Ruby's not like other demons. She saved my life. Damaris got us out of there by flying I think?"
Dean rolled his eyes at what she had said about Ruby. "Yeah, I hear she does that. I guess I... You know."
"What?" Ruby questioned slightly confused.
"I guess I owe you for... Sam. And I just wanted... you know…"
"Don't strain yourself."
"Okay, then. Is the moment over?"
Ruby nodded her head firmly.
"Good, 'cause that was awkward."
"Hey, Sam, you think it'd be safe to make a quick call, just to tell my parents I'm okay? They must be completely freaked." Anna questioned softly.
"Anna, um... Your parents…"
"What about them?"
"Look, I'm sorry."
"No, they're not…"
"Anna, I'm sorry."
"Why is this happening to me?"
"I don't know."
Damaris's head shot up.
"Back room." Dean told Anna softly.
Sam took Anna to the back room and then came back.
"Where's the knife?" Ruby questioned looking at Sam.
"Uh... about that…" Dean trailed off.
"You're kidding." Ruby said with a groan.
"Hey, don't look at me."
"Thanks a lot." Sam muttered softly.
"Great. Just peachy. Impeccable timing, guys, really."
The door rattled violently before bursting open. Castiel and Uriel entered the cabin.
"Please tell me you're here to help. We've been having demon issues all day." Dean said softly.
"Well, I can see that. You want to explain why you have that stain in the room?" Uriel said, narrowing his eyes at Ruby.
"We're here for Anna." Castiel said calmly.
Damaris blinked a few times, why were they here for Anna?
"Here for her like... here for her?"
"Stop talking. Give her to us." Uriel demanded.
"Are you gonna help her?" Sam questioned softly.
"No, she has to die."
Damaris's eyes went wide. They wanted to kill Anna? Perhaps this was much deeper than what she thought it was other than knowing that Anna really shouldn't be alive.
This is the end of Chapter 9. I hope you guys enjoyed this chapter. I kind of tried my best with trying to write it. There aren't too many chapters left of this story I believe anyways. I kind of lost track of how many episodes there were. Please leave a review and let me know what you think. Hopefully it won't take me too long to update with the next part. Until next time.
