Come Back to Me
Rowena fell to the ground as Dean let her go. She was afraid of Dean Winchester though she wouldn’t have admitted it. A soft little growl of annoyance as the handcuffs were once again in place. She looked at the older Winchester and then her eyes flickered to Sam. “Bringing Dean’s precious Aurora back was not part of our bargain” As much as she was afraid of the Winchester’s and what they would do. She was more afraid of what Aurora would do if she saw Rowena. Sam opened his mouth to speak but Dean grabbed Rowena once more and pushed her back up against the tree. “Well, the bargains changed. You don’t get what you want until my wife is alive and breathing again.” The red-haired witch chewed on her bottom lip contemplating it all. “Very well, but I don't think your precious Aurora will be happy to see I have been a part of all this.”
The witch tried to straighten herself up waiting for the brothers to haul her away to where Aurora was buried. “Well? Let's get on with this.” Dean nodded and grabbed Rowena’s arm practically dragging her to where Sam had left the Impala. He opened the back door and threw her into the seat. Rowena landed practically on her head and she huffed. “Take it easy I may be a powerful witch, but I’m also delicate.’ Dean just rolled her eyes and held out his hand to Sam. “Sammy keys.” Sam held the keys out hesitantly. “I don’t know Dean...you just came back...” Dean rolled his eyes again and yanked the keys from his brother’s hand. “I’m fine Sammy now let's go.” He slid into the front seat and turned the key in the ignition. “There we go...did you miss me, baby?” Once Sam was in, he started driving. Rowena leaned forward. ‘Do you two idiots even know where Aurora's body has been kept?” Sam’s mouth opened he had no idea. “I... I didn’t there wasn’t a funeral....” Dean looked over at Sam. ‘What do you mean Lucifer didn’t even give his own daughter a funeral??” His anger growing even more. “Dean....they aren’t exactly human they don’t do things the same way we do.” Rowena sighed exasperatedly. “Honestly you two... I don’t know how either of you surv....oops.” she looked at Dean. “Sorry forgot you did die.” She smirked. Dean gripped the steering wheel barely containing his desire to kill the damn witch, but he needed her to resurrect Aurora. “So, what do we do Sammy? We can’t go to Lucifer, he will try to stop us from bringing her back, he knows the consequences for magic like this.” Rowena looked at them through the rearview mirror with a smug look on her face. “What if I told you boys, I know exactly where she would be kept?” Dean slammed on the brakes and turned his head to look at her. “You better tell us NOW,” Rowena smirked at him. ‘I will but, the deal is going to have to be sweetened a little bit more for that.” Dean hated that the witch had to bargain for every little thing but If he was alive, he needed his wife here with him too. “What do you want?” Rowena shrugged. ‘Oh, just that you will help me when I need it next, no matter what it is I need help with.” Sam growled. “No, we can....” Dean looked over at him. ‘Shut up Sammy, this is my WIFE we are talking about I don’t care what the price is......” He looked back over at Rowena. “Done now where is my wife’s body?” Rowena sat back. “Just keep driving I will give you directions as needed.”
The impala continued driving away from the cemetery and towards the middle of town. But Rowena had not once told them to turn or anything. Dean was getting impatient. “Rowena where the hell are we going?” The redhead just shook her head. “Patience, love, Patience.” He growled and turned his attention back on the road as they left Lawrence. The streets of other towns passing by until they came to a dirt road. “Turn here.” Dean made the turn onto the dirt road. “Just keep going til the end.” Dean looked at her through the rear-view mirror wondering if this was some sort of trap, but he could sense the uneasy tension coming from Rowena as they drew closer and knew she wasn’t looking forward to what was at the end of this journey. As the road continued to get narrow, Dean noticed Mausoleums. Why would Lucifer keep her body way out here away from everyone He wondered. The road dead-ended into a large white Mausoleum with the words Valentine written across the front.
“Aurora’s family are all demons, she’s the only one with different blood why would there be a crypt?” Sam asked out loud. Rowena looked at him. “Dear boy, all your questions will be answered once you get me out of here so we can go in and get this over with. “Dean and Sam got out of the Impala Dean opened Rowena’s door and yanking her out. ‘Good lord, don’t you do anything delicate? I guess your little princess must have liked being manhandled. ‘Rowena smirked. Dean growled and shoved her towards the entrance to the mausoleum. “You don’t speak about my wife like that.” Rowena tripped and almost fell as right at the entrance there was a long staircase that led down. ‘So rude and rough.” She started down the stairs. Sam just remembered something. ‘Um Rowena, won’t we need blood from Aurora’s family?” Rowena just smirked. “Don’t worry giant. I have that covered.” The three continued down what seemed like an eternity before there was another door. “Aurora’s behind there? There’s no way through that Rowena!!” Dean glared at her. Rowena chuckled. “Oh, yee of little faith.’ She started chanting and the door slid up and she walked in towards where Aurora’s body lay in a glass-encased coffin. Her body had been perfectly preserved inside of it no wounds apparent. She turned to see Dean and Sam still at the entrance. ‘Well come on then, I haven't got all night.’
Dean saw the coffin and he was frozen, his heart hurting seeing his wife so lifeless laying there. With a choked sob he moved forward to stand next to it his hand touching the top of the coffin. “I'm so sorry baby, But I am going to make this all right again. I promise.” Rowena chanted again and the coffin opened. Somewhere in the back of his mind, Dean wondered how Rowena knew the spells that protected Aurora’s burial place, but they didn’t make it to the surface all that mattered was bringing his wife back to him. When his wife’s body was exposed to him Dean placed his hand in hers tears spilling down his cheeks as he felt how cold and limp she was now. Rowena looked at Dean and her cold heart almost broke him for him but she cleared her throat. She started to chant the same spell she used in resurrecting dean and she took the knife from Sam and she sliced her wrist as her own blood poured out over Aurora’s. Sam’s eyes raised in wonder. “Rowena your blood...but.” Rowena shushed him. “I need to concentrate, all your questions I am sure will be answered when she wakes.”
Rowena continued to chant and suddenly there was movement on the table. Dean leaned forward and squeezed his wife’s hand. “That’s it, baby. I’m here come back to me please baby.” His voice cracked with emotion. Rowena’s chanting got louder, and Aurora’s eyes popped open. She quickly sat up a little disoriented at first. Her eyes settled on Dean” Dean? I... you’re dead.... wait a minute...I’m dead......” Dean grabbed his wife up sobbing with relief and happiness. ‘We were dead baby, but when you killed yourself which by the way I ain’t happy about.... Sam knew he needed to bring me back because Nadia needed her father, but I couldn’t live without you, baby....”
Rowena tried to sneak away so Aurora wouldn’t notice her. ‘Where do you think you’re going?” Sam called after her. Aurora looked to see who Sam could be talking about and she saw the shock of red hair and as the woman turned, Aurora felt the blood drain from her as she was face to face with the one woman, she had vowed to never let anywhere near her again. Anger started to build up in her and she jumped from the coffin grabbing her mother by the collar. ‘What the f*** are you doing here?? Didn’t I tell you, MOTHER, to never come near me or my father again??? You cause nothing but heartbreak and misery and I loathe you!!” She was screaming directly into her face. Rowena still as calm as ever looked to Sam and Dean. ‘Will you two kindly get my daughter to let me go please.” Dean’s eyes blinked a little.” Daughter...?” Sam made the move to loosen Aurora’s hold on Rowena’s collar so she could step back. “Without me dear daughter, your husband would still be six feet under, and you would be dead and your father’s heart would still be breaking.” Aurora didn’t answer her and turned to look at her husband. “Baby, meet my mother Rowena.”
