Bang!--Chapter Four

Fandom: OC
Title: Bang! Chapter Four (AKA, the one in which nothing happens…all over again)
Author:cianconnell
Rating: R for language and violence
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the mistakes that remain after continuously futzing with this. The OC and the characters portrayed therein are solely the possession of Josh Schwartz & Co., which is entirely a pity IMO, but…whatever, no one asked for my opinion anyway.

*pets Trey*

Author's Notes: This is completely AU as Papa!Atwood! is not, in fact, played by teh Sorbo. Beta thanks go out to overnighter and crashcmb. I bow and avert my eyes, whenever I’m in their cyber-presence and I suggest y’all do the same.

This chapter is dedicated to cereselle, to whom I promised a belated birthday crack!Winchester!fic!, but this one seemed kinda lonely (sorry, dude, I’m kinda a sucky present-giver)…and to katwoman76, who kept reminding me that Ryan was still standing in the middle of the sidewalk in a crappy part of Chino, all beat up and shit. Which? Hee!

It’s been a while, so I’m a bit rusty, please be kind.

Other chapters can be found here Chapter One, Chapter Two, and Chapter Three

The toolbox was heavier than it looked and Ryan gave a slight, involuntary gasp as he struggled—first in an attempt not to pitch forward and unceremoniously face-plant into the concrete—and then to actually straighten up under its weight. A weight, which put unwanted strain on the already excruciating tenderness that comprised the muscles in his stomach and thigh. Ryan was seriously debating whether he’d be able to carry the damned thing the 20-odd feet to his brother’s front steps without causing any further damage to himself when Paulo came back from securing the gun in his car and took the box off of him, lifting it easily out of Ryan’s right hand.
