The next morning.
Meg lay with her head on Cas chest, when the car started vibrated. “Cas” she whispered. “Cas, wake up. There’s someone in the car”
Cas opened his eyes and saw a silhouette. He quietly gave Meg his shirt and he put on his trousers. “Dean?” he asked, though he knew it wasn’t Dean.
“No” the driver replied.
“Kevin!” Meg panted. “What are you doing? Are you going to try and kill us again?”
“No” Kevin answered. “Listen, I’m sorry for trying to kill you, but I promise I had good reason. Crowley had to think I was on his side. Ever wondered why I didn’t hit you in the head or the heart?”
“Where are you taking us?” Cas wanted to know.
“To the tablets” Kevin said. “Well, not directly. They’re guarded by demons and hellhounds and other things”
“And how are we supposed to get them?” Meg asked snappy.
“Have you ever seen the Saw series?” Kevin asked.
“Yes” Meg answered. “No” Cas replied at the same time.
“It’s a little like that” Kevin continued vaguely. He parked the Impala in front of an abandoned building. “When you open the door, you will find two bags. You each take one of them. You will also see two doors. That’s where you have to split up. There’s not enough time to stay together. I can only keep Crowley away for so long”
“Why can’t you just use your angel powers to get the tablets” Meg asked confused.
“I’m the one who set the traps” Kevin explained. “Crowley expects me to take you here, and he expects you won’t make it through the maze. Don’t let him be right. You have to be out before Crowley returns, for he will kill you himself”
“Oh, so, no pressure there” Meg scoffed.
“Now, listen careful” Kevin said. “In every room you will find a message on where you can find the tablet”
He stepped out of the car and opened the door to the backseat. Cas and Meg stepped out unwillingly. “Start walking” he ordered. Cas and Meg walked to the door and Cas opened it.
“Go on” Kevin said and he pushed Cas inside, Meg being next. Kevin closed the door and locked it. Meg slowly looked around the room and saw the bags. She poked Cas and pointed at the bags. Cas walked to them and picked them up, handing one to Meg.
“You think it’s wise to split up?” Cas asked.
“No” Meg shook her head. “This is Kevin. He’s tried to kill me three times. I don’t trust him”
“Ssshhh” Cas hissed.
“What?” Meg hissed back.
“You hear that?” Cas whispered.
“What?” Meg asked nervous.
“Growling” Cas answered. They listened carefully and could hear clear growling and claws scraping over the floor.
“Hellhounds” Meg realized as she saw long, white lines appearing on the floor. She put her hand on the latch of the door on the right side, while Cas did the same on the door on the right. “I’ll see you outside”
They opened the doors at the same time, entered the next room and shut the door, just in time to avoid the claws and canines of the hellhounds.
