Summary: Somebody has a sick sense of humor.
Notes: Response to the prompt #25 - ‘ace.’

Dean was well aware of the fact that he was on borrowed time.

He heard frustration and guilt in Bobby’s voice when he called to report he hadn’t found a way to get Dean out of his deal.

Every demon he exorcised gleefully stated they were eagerly anticipating his arrival in Hell.

He caught Sam looking at him like the hellhounds were going to appear any second and rip him to shreds.

He did not need reminders.

So it really annoying that every time he played poker for the last six months, at least one hand contained aces and eights.
