Description: Death was decidedly dissatisfied with the care being shown by certain bacteria towards his favorite one. He would have preferred to just reap the impertinent apes responsible, but unfortunately, that option was off the table. Luckily, a bit of research showed a different option just in time for Dean Winchester to catch up with him in a little pizzeria in Chicago.

Chapter 1: Rings & Pizza
Needs & Wants
Chapter 1:? Rings & Pizza
(^^)¡°There are conditions,¡± Death said in the same even tone that he had been using the entire conversation. The words were nearly drowned out by the rain that continued to pound against the glass.Dean swallowed the snarky comment that immediately formed on his tongue at the declaration. There was no doubt in his mind that Death had not been exaggerating when he had mentioned that he would one day reap God. The other Horsemen hadn¡¯t felt as immense as Death. If the most powerful thing that he had ever met wanted to put conditions on his gift-wrapping the end of the Apocalypse, then there were conditions that would be met.¡°Okay. Like?¡± Dean asked hesitantly when it seemed like Death wasn¡¯t going to continue unprompted. Death frowned down at his hands holding the ring. Dean¡¯s insides squirmed at the displeasure being shown. He shifted in his seat, making his leather jacket drag against the vinyl upholstery on the chair. The scent of pepperoni and mozzarella made Dean¡¯s stomach twist as much as the anxiety did.¡°The first is obvious,¡± Death continued after swallowing his bite. ¡°You will do whatever it takes to put Lucifer in his cell. Whatever it takes.¡±Death glared at the ring between his fingers, as if it had personally offended the entity.¡°The second is of more importance than ending this tantrum.¡± Death lowered his hands to the table completely. His long fingers rubbed the bisected triangle cut into the ring¡¯s band as if to soothe himself. Dean swallowed against the nagging worry growing in his gut. What could make Death anxious when the Apocalypse was barely even a blip? ¡°I have arranged for a package to be delivered to the Sioux City bus depot tomorrow afternoon. This package must be delivered to your Robert Singer and remain in his custody until such a time as I come to collect it personally.¡±¡°Just a package? How will I know which one?¡±¡°You will know,¡± Death replied. ¡°It will be obvious, even to you.¡± Death made eye contact, his frown deepening even further. ¡°It is very important that the package stays with your Robert Singer. It will prevent any unnecessary messiness.¡±¡°Messiness?¡± Dean asked before he could stop himself. Death sighed deeper than he had heard anyone other than Bobby do ever. He then rubbed one bony hand over his face just like Bobby tended to do when Dean and Sammy were annoying him more than usual.¡°Messiness,¡± Death agreed without explaining. ¡°Now, do I have your word?¡±¡°Okay, yeah,¡± Dean said. He licked his lips. ¡°Yes.¡±Focusing on keeping his hand steady, Dean put out his hand, palm cupped upwards to receive the ring. Death still hesitated to let the ring drop. His dark eyes burned with something that Dean would have called love in anything younger than the start of the universe. There was no way that something that was willing to spare Chicago because of the pizza would ever feel that way about anything.¡°That had better be a real yes, Dean,¡± Death warned as he lowered the ring to Dean¡¯s waiting hand. The tips of Death¡¯s finger felt like ice or something even colder. ¡°You cannot cheat Death, after all, and I will make you suffer, leash or no, if something happens to that package. Do you understand, Dean?¡±¡°I do,¡± Dean agreed, silently wondering what was so important about this package that trumped the end of the world. Death closed Dean¡¯s fingers around his ring and held the newly formed fist for a moment before releasing it. Then he turned his attention back to the slice of deep dish on his plate.Without segue, Death began to explain how to open Lucifer¡¯s cage using the Horsemen rings.
