A couple of Months later.
I walked outside and looked at what we've created.
It was like safe heaven. Thanks to dad and Daryl our population grew. Dad even turned into a farmer. We have some pigs and a horse. It's great.
I felt a hand around my waist and smiled.
Daryl " you hungry?"
I nodded " yeah "
We walked to the outside kitchen were Carol was making food.
Everyone was greeting us.
Daryl has become the favorite of some women but I wasn't bothered.
i smiled " smells good."
Daryl took a minibowl with some roasted deer flesh.
He ate one. I ate one too.
Carol smiled "They love you"
Daryl "You know, Rick brought in a lot of them too."
Carol shook her head " not recently. Give strangers sanctuary, keeping people fed, you're gonna have to learn to live with the love"
I nearly choked on the flesh.
Daryl rolled his eyes at me "right"
Carol " I need you two to see something."
She looked at Patrick "Patrick, can take over?"
Patrick walked to us " yes, ma'm"
I quickly wiped my hand on a towel.
Patrick " Mr. Dixon, I just wanted to thank you for bringing that deer back yesterday. It was a real treat, sir"
I smirked at Daryl.
Patrick " and I'ld honored to shake your hand"
He held his hand out.
Dad looked at it and I held back laugh. Then he licked his fingers clean and shook his hand.
I grabbed Carol's shoulder and we held back and laugh.
Then we followed her. We walked to the spot from who we could see the whole field and the fences.
Carol " about today, I don't know if we are gonna be able to spare a lot of people for the run. "
Daryl " that place is good to go. We're gonna move on it."
Carol " yeah. The thing is, we had a pretty big buildup overnight. Dozens more towards tower three. It's getting as bad as last month. They don't spread out anymore"
Daryl " with more of us sitting here, we're drawing more of them out. You get enough of those damn fence-clingers, they start to heard up."
Carol " pushing against the fences again. It's manageable, but unless we get ahead of it, not for long."
She looked at the bowl and then at him " sorry, Pookie"
Daryl nudged her and scoffed " pf"
He gave the bowl back and then we walked to the he cars.
They were packing the truck for the run.
Beth came out and walked to her boyfriend. I stood next to Daryl. He kissed her.
I smiled " how cute"
He looked at me and rolled his eyes.
She kissed him again and he called after her " ain't you gonna say goodbye?"
Beth " no"
Daryl " It's like a damn romance novel"
He grabbed my waist and kissed me.
I kissed back and smiled. I was happy.
I broke the kiss " You sure you don't want me to come with you?"
Daryl nodded " I'm sure."
Me "i Love you "
He got on his bike " love you too, babe"
Then he and the others drove to the field.
I walked after them and saw Michone. Daryl stopped in fornt of her.
I smiled at her and hugged her.
Me " Welcome back"
She smiled at me. She looked take Daryl " didn't find him"
Daryl nodded " glad to see you in one piece"
Michone " i'm thinking of looking over near Macon. It's worth a shot."
Daryl "70 miles of Walkers. You might run into a few unneighborly types. Is it? I'm gonna check out the Big Spot.the one I was talking about, just seeing."
Dad nodded" yeah I got to go out and check the snares. i don't wanna lose whatever we catch on the walkers. "
Michone nodded " I'll go"
Carl " You just got here."
Michone smiled at him " and I'll be back."
Then she left.
Me " come on, dad "
I nodded to the gate.
We ran to it and opened it. They drove off.
Dad had left for God knows what.
I stood outside and saw 4 kids standing by the fence and waving at the walkers. Carl and Patrick made their way to them. I walked to the kids.
Carl "--they had names when they were alive. They are dead now"
I walked to them.
Lizzy " no, they're not. They're just different. "
Carl " what the hell are you talking about? Okay, they don't talk. They don't think. They eat people. "
Me " alright alright alright, kids. "
They looked at me.
Me " Don't give them names and don't wave them. Don't get attached to them, okay?. And don't go near the fences. They will build up and then we'll have a problem with the fence."
Lizzy " but-"
I shook my head " no buts. I don't wanna see any of you here again. "
Lizzy " They are just different "
Me " you're right, but bad different. They don't love anymore. They don't have a heartbeat like we have. They are dangerous. Besides, weren't you supposed to be at read?"
Lizzy looked at her crew " come on"
Then they walked away.
Daryl came into our shared cell.
I smiled at him " hey. How was it?"
Daryl sat down on the bed and took his shoes off.
I was sitting behind him on the bed.
Daryl sighed " Zack is dead"
My jaw dropped " You tell Beth?"
He nodded " didn't even lost one single tear. "
Me " Oh boy"
Daryl laid down.
I was leaning against the wall. He put a hand on my thigh.
Me " you alright?"
He nodded " You?"
Me " yeah
Daryl yawned " good"
I smiled and laid down. He put his arm around me and I put my head on his chest.
Me " night"
Daryl " night, Ken"
