Dean stood in the doorway as Bobby threw together a bag. “You agree with all this?”

“It’s straightforward, logical, “Bobby looked at him, “and simple. I thought you liked it.”

“I’m not simple. I just think there are so many ways it could go wrong.”

“It’s a good plan, Dean. I still don’t trust him, but as long as he’s helping us, I’m okay with that. You’re a pretty good judge of character, so trust your gut.”

“Thanks, Bobby.” Dean debated telling Bobby about Alan’s brother but figured it was too personal.

He followed the older hunter down the stairs and into the study where Alan was flipping through one of the many books in Bobby’s collection.

He stood when he saw them coming. “Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.” Alan replaced the book on the shelf. “I knew there were lots of books on the subject, but this is amazing.”

“Years of work,” Bobby said roughly, though he did sound a little pleased. “How’re we gonna work this?”

“Have you decided who’s taking care of the fifth body?”

“Jo Harvelle. Bobby’s got a location in Oklahoma.”

“You have coordinates?”

“Can’t you just…” Bobby wiggled his fingers by his head.

“Yeah, I can, but Dean’s gotta use the machine to get to Jo while I take you back to Connecticut.”

The look on Bobby’s face made Dean laugh. “It’s really not so bad, not as disorienting as going with Cas.”

“With such a glowing endorsement, how can I refuse?”

“Coordinates?”

Bobby gave Alan the coordinates he got from Jo’s phone GPS. Dean watched as Alan tapped in more numbers than required for coordinates.

“It’s an override code,” he explained. “Normally only works when I wear it.” He handed it to Dean. “It’ll work for you now.”

Dean carefully strapped the device to his wrist. It reminded him of a very small, thin smart phone. “So I press that one, right?” He pointed to one of the larger buttons.

“Yeah, that’s it. You’re good?”

“Fine.”

“Remember, I’ll meet up with you once Bobby’s settled.” Alan looked at the other hunter. “Ready?”

Bobby gripped his bag tightly in his right hand and set his left on Alan’s shoulder. Then they were gone.

Dean looked at the machine on his wrist. He hadn’t seen Jo in almost two years, back when Meg had hijacked Sam. He talked to her a couple times, but only briefly and about work. Seeing her again, especially when needed a favor, was going to be a little tough. He pressed the button.

Upon arrival, he staggered and almost fell against a giant dumpster. He checked the machine and the screen told him he was where he wanted to be and it was a little after 8:00am. He rolled his sleeve down to hide the machine and walked to the mouth of the alley. At the corner was a small diner and Dean’s stomach growled reminding him he hadn’t eaten since yesterday. As he reached for the door handle, he spotted her in a corner booth by the window reading a newspaper.

He slipped into the booth across from her. “Hey, Jo.”

“Dean.” She looked up. “You look like crap.”

“Thanks.”

“Where’s Sam?”

“Doing research.” He grabbed a piece of toast from her plate. “Bartending again?”

“Gotta pay the bills.” She crossed her arms “Quit the small talk. Why are you here?”

“Got a job that needs another hand and thought you’d want in on it.”

“Wow, Dean Winchester asking for help from a girl.”

“You should be flattered.” He grinned and finished her orange juice.

“Do you want to order something?”

“Don’t have time.” His stomach growled again and he hoped she didn’t hear it. That would totally blow the cool factor he was working. “So?”

“How are you, Dean?” Jo looked at him in a way that reminded Dean of her mother. “After what happened, I mean. It’s enough to give anyone issues.”

“I’m fine!” he said harshly. “Really, I’m fine,” he said normally. “I don’t know why everyone keeps asking.” Though he did know. Ever since he had told what happened down below, everyone had been treating him differently. “You in?”

“You haven’t told me what it is.”

“Salt and burn in five different locations. We need another hand.”

“Five? That’s ambitious, even for you. There’s you, Sam, Bobby, me. Who’s the other? Is it Mom?”

“God, no. She still blames me for you going solo. He’s new, Alan Kelly.”

“I guess I could call out sick for a few days.” Jo smiled. Her eyes then traveled behind him and took on a certain gleam he wished would be directed at him. “He looks a bit lost.”

Dean turned and saw Alan gazing about and lifted a hand to motion him over. With a nod, he joined them at the table. Dean quickly made the introductions.

“A pleasure,” Alan said in that damn accent and Jo practically giggled.

“I’ve always been a sucker for men with accents,” she said flirtatiously.

“It’s a good thing you don’t live in Britain, then. You’d never get anything done.”

Great, now he’s flirting back! “Jo, don’t you need to pack a few things?” He stood and headed for the door.

Jo settled her bill then caught up with him as Alan walked a bit more slowly as if to give them a moment that wasn’t really needed. The sooner they got this thing done, the sooner everything would be fine and back to normal.

Thank you! I'm glad it held your interest to do it all at once. I was nervous about entering such a devoted fandom. 10 is being beta'd and I'm working on 11 right now. I think it'll be about 13 installments. (Oh, and feel free to check out my other fics!)
