Dad walked to Michonne.
Michonne " so we're clear. That look wasn't a " let's attack that man " look. It was a " he seems like an okay guy to me" look. "
Dad ignored her " we got to secure him. Dump his pack . let's see what this guy really is."
Michonne " Rick"
I looked at her.
Dad " everybody else, we need eyes in every direction. They're coming for us. We might not know how or when, but they are."
Maggie " Me and Sasha, we didn't see him. If he had wanted to hurt us, he could've. "
Dad ignored her " anybody see anything?"
Glenn " just a lot of places to hide"
Dad " all right. Keep looking"
Me " Dad"
He looked at me.
Me " That guy was annoying me with his talk but he seemed okay. He ain't looking like a killer or something like that"
Dad ignored me and walked to Carl.
I rolled my eyes.
Aaron woke up and held his jaw " That's a hell of a right cross, Rick. "
Dad " Sit him up."
Maggie " I think it's better if-"
Aaron " It's okay "
Dad " He's fine. Sit him up."
Michonne sat him up. They had chained his hands together behind his back.
Aaron " you're being cautious. I completely understand. "
Dad " how many of your people are out there? You have a flare gun. You have it to signal your people. How many of them are there?"
Aaron " does it matter?"
Dad nodded " yes. Yes,it does. "
Aaron " I mean, of course, it means how many people are actually out there, but does it matter how many people I tell you are out there? Because I'm pretty sure no matter what number I say...eight, 32, 444, 0. No matter what I say, you're not going to trust me. "
Dad " well, it's hard to trust anyone who smiles after getting punched in the face. "
Aaron " how about a guy who leaves bottles of water for you in the road? "
Daryl " how long you people been following us? "
Aaron " long enough to see that you practically ignore a pack of roamers on your trail. Long enough to see that despite a lack of food and water, you never turned on each other. You're survivors and you're people. Like I said, and I hope you won't punch me for saying it again, that is the most important resource in the world. "
Dad " how many others are out there?"
Aaron " one. "
Dad shook his head.
Aaron " I knew you wouldn't believe me. If it's not words, if it's not pictures, what would it take to convince you that this is for real? What If I drove you to the community? All of you? We leave now, we'll get there by lunch. "
Dad " I'm not sure how the 16 of us are gonna fit in a car you and your friend drove down here in. "
Aaron " we drove separately. If we found a group, we wanted to be able to bring them all home. There's enough room for all of us. "
