Dean hadn't meant to get so distracted. It was just that he caught a glimpse of a baseball game on the TV in the window and had to stop to see who was winning. His dad was a fan of the Royals, but he had taken a liking to watching the Mariners and they were playing against the Yankees. It was something both he and Dad agreed on, the Yankees were evil.
But now Sam had run off and Dad was going to kill him. Or feed him to a ghoul. Either way, he had to find his brother now.
Dean pushed through ladies with heavy bags as he called his brother's name. He had to force himself to think that Sam was just lost, and not something worse. If he had been kidnapped or killed...
He hoped Sam was still somewhere in the mall and didn't go outside. It would be harder for him to find his brother in that case, so he hoped for the best. Of course, the best scenario was Sam not being stubborn and getting lost, but Dean worked with what he had.
He spotted shaggy brown hair in the distance and he bolted.
Dean practically tackled his brother in a tight grip of a hug when he reached him. He muttered nonsensical things into his brother's hair, not letting go even when Sam tried to squirm away.
"Why'd you leave me? You know you're not supposed to leave my sight." Dean grunted. "You're lucky I'm not telling Dad about this."
Sam pressed his face into Dean's chest and said nothing. Or maybe he did and Dean didn't hear him over the pounding of his heart. "Not going to let you go, Sammy. Hear me? Not ever."
He led Sam away towards the exit.
