Carl grimes: a love story

Got bit. Fever hit. World gone to shit. Might as well quit.

Carl p.o.v.

It had been just over 4 months when I last saw my best friend Maddie. She had left school early. The day it happened. The day the world had gone to shit.

I remember that day like it was yesterday. A day like to other.


My math teacher was going over how to find the volume of a sphere just like we had learned the year before, and before that, and so on. I am going to ask her out today. I thought to myself. When I see her in English I'm going to.


"Hey grlllll!" I said. Because..well. We're best friends.

"Hey Carl." She had a gloomy kind of look on her face.

"What wrong Maddie?" I asked concerned for my friend.

"Nothing. Just have a stomach ache."

"Well that's not good." I said with a frown.

"Yah. I think I might go home."

"O. Ok." I said kinda disappointed.

"Something wrong?"

"No. Hey if you want I can drop by later. You know make you feel better with my." I pause a moment. Stare at her intensely but jokingly "dashing looks." I narrow my eyes at her.

She laughs "ok. Sounds great." She goes to the teacher and asks to use the phone to call home.

I already knew my dad was in the hospital. but by the time it was time to go home. I decided to walk home. But as I walked home I noticed a lot of people leaving thief houses. I don't know what for though.

As I reach the house my mom quickly pulls me into the house.

"What is it mom? Is everything ok?"

She looked at me with frantic eyes. "It's happening she whispered."

I knew exactly what she meant. And I realized, I had no time to pay a visit to my dear friend. I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye. Lets just hope she's still alive is the only thing I could think of.
