Chapter Text

There were times when Jared hated having a twin, when his favorite shirts would go missing or even worse, end up in the dirty laundry, girls used to mistake Sam for him and ask Sam out on dates that were meant to be for him and of course Sam turns them down. Then there were times Jared hated living with his brother, when he'd come home and trip on his brother's big ass shoes, he'd miss calls because his brother doesn't answer the phone, or like now, when there were dirty dishes strewn all over the living room.

"Sam!" Jared fumed as he slammed the apartment door shut.

Sam came out of the bedroom and looked at him.

"Look at this mess; you don't think for once you can clean after yourself when you use some dishes?"

Sam sighed and began to clean up the dishes. Jared sighed and followed his brother in the kitchen.

"Sam, I mean come on man, you gotta at least help me out. You live here too and I can't be doing all the work around here."

Sam made some motions with his hand and pointed to the front door before pointing back at himself. Jared frowned.

"Are you saying you'll leave?"

Sam nodded. Jared shook his head.

"No Sam, where on earth will you go? Back to Mom and Dad's? I don't want you to leave Sam, all I'm saying is to please help around the house. I'm not trying to treat you like you're a maid or something but you gotta at least clean up after yourself."

Sam nodded and Jared clapped his hand on his brother's shoulder, "Good. Now I'm gonna take a nap. I'm completely beat."

Sam chuckled as he sat on the couch and put on a movie while Jared went to his bedroom and took a nap.

"This is all your fucking fault Dean!" Jensen roared.

"My fault, how is it my fault?"

"Because you use my car and then don't put gas in it."

"Dude, why the fuck would I use you're wacked out, girly as car when I have my own?" Dean frowned.

"Whatever, can you call a tow? I left my phone at the house."

Dean shook his head, "Battery's dead."

"What the fuck, you are so freaking useless! Didn't you charge it?"

"I'm useless? Who the fuck decided to leave their phone at home? And yes I charged it, but you know this phone doesn't hold a lot of charge."

Jensen sighed, "Great, we're in the middle of nowhere with no gas and no phone. I'm gonna fucking be late. Can this day get any worse?"

"Hey look," Dean pointed to the little townhouses, "Maybe someone over there will let us use their phone to call for a tow."

Jensen looked to where Dean was pointed and scoffed, "Right, you wanna go over and knock on some random person's door asking to use the phone?"

Dean glared, "You got a better idea asshole?"

Jensen shook his head, "Nope, let's go."

Jensen and Dean climbed out of the car and walked across the street to the townhouse community and picked a random house and knocked on the door. Little did they know it would change the rest of their lives forever.


Sam paused his movie and went to answer the door knowing he should've woken Jared. He opened the door and stared at the two men standing there.

"Sorry to bother you, but is there any chance we can borrow your phone to call a tow truck for my car? My idiot brother forgot to put gas in my car and his battery died and I accidentally left my phone at home," Jared said.

Sam looked between both boys and then back again frowning. Dean chuckled.

"Yeah, we're twins. So can we use your phone or not?"

Sam nodded and let the boys in the house and handed them his cellphone and looked back toward Jared's room.

"Thanks," Jensen said swiping the phone from Dean and called the tow truck.

Jared walked out of his bedroom in his t-shirt and boxers, "Sam will you please turn that down-Holy shit! Who the fuck are you guys and what are you doing in my house?"

Dean wanted to laugh, "Um sorry about that dude, we just needed to borrow a phone."

Jared frowned and looked at Sam, "You let them in?"

Sam nodded and Jared sighed, "You should've woken me up. Let me put some clothes on."

Jared headed back into the bedroom and shut the door behind him. Dean turned to look at his brother who had a glazed over expression on his face.

"Jen? Jenny!"

Jensen shook his head, "Huh?"

"What did the tow company say?"

"Oh uh, they'll be here in about half an hour."


Jared came back out fully dressed, "Sorry about that," he said and stuck his hand out. "I'm Jared Padalecki and this is my twin brother Sam."

Dean took Jared's hand, "Dean Ackles and my twin brother Jensen."

Jared nodded and Jensen cleared his throat, "Um, sorry about that."

"Really it's no problem, when are the guys coming for your car?"

"Half an hour. We'll get out of your way," Jensen said.

"Nonsense. You're fully welcome to wait here for the tow truck. I imagine it's better than sitting in a car for so long."

Dean frowned looking at Sam who was sitting on the couch. He wondered why he hadn't said a word. He walked over to him and handed him the phone back, "Hey, thanks for letting my brother use your phone."

Sam just nodded and took the phone from Dean causing their hands to brush slightly. Sam panicked and jerked back. Dean frowned again but decided not to comment.

"So you are the Padalecki twins," he said.

Jared frowned, "You heard of us?"

Jensen chuckled, "Dude everyone talks about you two. Jared, the older twin who is so sweet but talks a lot and Sam, the younger twin, who is also sweet but incredibly shy."

"Wow. I never thought we'd be famous," Jared chuckled.

Dean laughed, "Yeah, you boys are pretty famous alright," he said glancing at Sam again.

Dean wasn't sure what it was but there was something about Sam that just caught his attention. Maybe it was the fact that he hadn't said two words since they been there or maybe it was the way he was sitting on the couch with his hood pulled over his face trying to be invisible. It definitely wasn't because Dean thought he was cute. Nope, not at all. Well…maybe a little.

~J2/W 2~

"Well, it was nice meeting you guys. Hope to see you guys around," Jared said to Dean and Jensen shaking their hands.

Dean nodded, "Thanks for letting us chill here while we wait. See ya Sam!"

Sam just waved causing Dean to frown. Jensen waved and pulled his brother out of house and too the car where the people were hooking it up to the tow truck. Jensen glanced at his brother and knew something was on his mind.

"What's up Dean?"

Dean shrugged, "I wonder why Sam never talked to us."

"Maybe he just doesn't like us," Jensen shrugged as they climbed into the tow truck.

"Nah, because he didn't talk to his brother either."

Jensen shrugged, "Dean, don't worry about it. Chances are we'll probably never see those two again, so it's no use fretting over it."

Dean sighed, "You're probably right," he said as he settled into his seat.
