"Everything's been different since our mom died," Dean said. "Growing up was different—and even now, things are weird."

"I know how that feels," Tony said thoughtfully. "I still feel that way sometimes too,"

Sam looked over at Dean, who stared at Tony for a moment.

"Your mom die when you were a kid too?" Dean asked.

Tony nodded. His eyes grew cloudy.

"She died of cancer when I was 11," he said. "And my father changed completely when it happened. In fact, a year after we lost my mom, he disowned me and sent me off to prep school,"

"Ouch," Sam said, wincing slightly.

"Yeah, that's kind of how I felt at the time too," Tony said, shrugging. "Now, I guess I see it as a good thing. I wouldn't be at this job if I hadn't been trained so early."

"At least you knew her," Sam said. "I was six-freakin'-months old! I barely remember my own mother, and I still only know what I know about her through photos and what Dean and my dad have told me,"

Only Tony saw the pain flicker through Dean's eyes as he looked away from his younger brother's wistful face.

"On the upside," Tony said, faking cheerful. "At least your father didn't remarry a woman who was a barracuda!"

The brothers looked at him, and Sam was the one to crack a smile first. Dean shot Tony an oddly grateful look. Tony smiled slightly.

Abby came into the room then and looked at the three men, who were quick to avoid each other's glances.

"Whoa!" she said. "Awkward!"
