Author’s Note: This was written for the 2015 round of spn_meanttobe, where I claimed a prompt called, "The Hooker." So, yeah, not a lot of subtlety happening with that one. Thank you forever to quickreaver who accidentally mentioned on Twitter, where I could see it, that she would be up for working with an author on this fest. I calmly replied, "DIBBS!!!!!!" and she didn't even TRY to quietly backtrack. :D She did this BEAUTIFUL WONDERFUL ART that includes JENSEN'S TUMTUM and little hurt bb!Jared being all rain-soaked and, well. Just. LOOK AT IT. In the interest of full disclosure, this fic has NOT been betaed because I finished it while in the middle of moving and I still don't have internet, so apologies if it's a hot mess. I did my best to read it over.
Summary: AU: Jared is an injured kid wandering down the side of the road the first time Jensen meets him. He brings Jared back to Baby's, his father's diner, to help. As they grow up, they become close friends, but just when Jensen is beginning to realize his feelings for Jared may be more than friendly, Jared disappears.
Years later, Jared returns to his diner, but he's not alone. Every night, he comes in escorted by a different john, and Jensen quietly aches for the boy he fell in love with.
