Fic: Hedgehog Rescue Allies I

 Hedgehog Rescue Allies I
By PaBurke
Summary/Challenge: Dean went to Hell and was hauled out of Perdition only to be turned into a 4/5-year-old version of himself. Now a ‘Verse.
Disclaimer: So not mine
Rating: teen-ish


Pediatrician and General Practitioner Dr. Dave Gingerich was a head and a half shorter than Bobby, but had wider shoulders. Those shoulders were leftover from Dave’s first career as a landscaper. Dave had slimmed down since finishing his residency and opening his family clinic. He now biked marathon distances to keep in shape. It was during one of those marathon bike trips that Dave had been chased by something decidedly not human. Dave had been smart enough not to stop and stare and die. He had also been smart enough to remember all the gossip concerning Bobby and to call him for a rescue with his cell phone.

Bobby had driven out to the stranded bicyclist, speeding the whole way. The hunter had used his shotgun to keep the bank-robbing cowboy ghost at bay while Dave reacquainted himself with his shoulder muscles and dug up the corpse. One of the first things Bobby had done when he had discovered the supernatural was to locate every boneyard in the state and know the histories of as many of their inmates as possible. That research, as over-the-top as it had been at the time, had saved his life several times over and that time, it saved Dave’s life.

Dave preferred to live his life as if the supernatural didn’t exist. He didn’t hesitate to offer help to Bobby whenever asked, but he didn’t want to know details.

That changed when Dave held up Dean’s chest x-ray to the light and his jaw dropped open. The Enochian words that Castiel had said he had etched onto Dean’s ribs were there, as promised. “The hell? Bobby? How did this happen?”

“You don’t want to know,” Bobby told him. “Really, this time, you don’t want to know.”

“The bones show no sign of healing indicating that these are brand new… injuries? But Dean has no corresponding scars or cuts on his skin. How could this happen? And does it have anything to do with that handprint scar on his shoulder?”

Ah, the scars that defied reason. Bobby had been as awestruck as Dave about the handprint scar, but he had hidden it better. “You really don’t want to know,” Bobby repeated. “How are his lungs?”

“Ahhh.” Dave tried to see, he really did, but he kept getting distracted by the letters carved into bone. “Now I know why you insisted that I take the x-ray myself.”

“Lungs?” Bobby grumbled.

“Lungs are clear, but I expected as much from listening to them,” Dave reminded Bobby of who actually was the doctor here.

“The coughing?”

“He has an infection in his ears and it’s draining into his throat. I’ll write out a prescription for both the ears and the cough. It’s for two weeks worth of pills, finish them.”

Bobby looked at Dean. “I think we can handle that.”

Dean nodded. He reached for his x-ray and Dave handed it over.

“We’re taking the x-ray with us,” Bobby told Dave.

Dave laughed. “I don’t want that in my office.” He handed Bobby the script. “Call the office if you have any problems or if Dean doesn’t improve. You have my cell number if it gets really bad.”

“Thanks, Dave.”

“Take care of yourself,” Dave told Bobby. Then he turned to Dean, “You too. You obviously have enough going on that you don’t need ear infections on top of that.”

Dean nodded, hopped off the examining table, put on his t-shirt and then held out his hand to shake Dave’s. The look Dave sent Bobby said that he was impressed, but he shook Dean’s hand solemnly, as if he were a man.

Bobby knew that Dean appreciated that.
