A beautifully written fanfic from Jared's pov growing up witnessing neighbour Jensen's abuse by his sadistic father. Jared is one year older than Jensen, spans the period from Jared aged eight through sixteen.
"Someday we’ll leave here and never come back again and you won’t ever have to think about him. Not ever again. And if he comes near you, I’ll be big enough that I’ll kill him.” They’re big words, harsh words but Jared shakes with how much he means them, with the iron-clad conviction behind them.
