"Healthy Choice" (birthday fic for yesterday4!) - SPN gen, G
dean has simple pleasures
Tiny birthday ficlet for yesterday4, who prompted me with an icon of Dean and an apple. Happy birthday, sugar!

The apple sits heavy in his hand. Heavier than he remembers, and he knows what the weight should be, from years of swiping them from crowded school cafeterias so Sammy would have something crisp and sweet to eat after school. Even then, Sammy had usually liked it best when they swapped the apple back and forth, bites overlapping each other, and they were both sticky with juice.

Sammy's been looking out for him for a long time.

If eating this damn apple is going to make Sam happy, make him see that Dean believes that Sam's got the smarts to beat the deal, then there's no choice, really. He won't even do his luau-pig impression.

"Here's to living healthy, Sam," he says, raising the apple like he's hoisting a beer. He crunches down on it, white flesh parting beneath his teeth. Man, he'd forgotten just how sweet it could be.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.

oh! i love how you've taken a tiny slice of an unremarkable action and made it so eloquent. it feels very much in character for dean to avoid chick flick expressions of love and trust, but those emotions just pour out from his choices big and small.

Thank you very much for this feedback - it's so wonderful to read.
