“Didn’t mean it like that,” He laughed a little. “I mean them raising a kid. I can’t even picture Dad talking to him. He’s….a handful from what I saw,” He shrugged. “He said he would. I guess…I’m gonna be here a long time now. He’s immortal. I’m probably the same as long as no one decides to hunt me. So…We got time. Am I selfish for wanting him to? I mean I got Mom and Dad. Why do I think I need him too?”
“All the time in the world…” Dean replied, voice quiet. The truth was he pitied the immortal, his brother. Nobody should have to live forever, still, he was family and as long as he stayed on the straight and narrow he was good in Deans book.
“You’re not being selfish, Jace.” He reassured him. “He’s your family, you deserve to be able to get to know him.” He paused. “Though, I don’t want you thinking you need him. You did just fine without him.”
