Lightning's POV

I woke up and heard nothing. No one talking. No one moving. No one laughing. I didn't hear Beth singing or Judith crying. I just heard silence.

I got up out of bed slowly remembering everything. The accident. Jake trying to rape me. Carl beating Jake. Carl coming in and comforting me and than I cried myself to sleep in his arms.

I look out the small window that had bars and saw it was night time. I quickly got a glass of water and than went back to my cell.

After a long while of trying to get back to sleep I finally gave up and went to Carls cell.

"Carl." I whispered lightly shaking Carl.

"Hmm?" Carl muffled slowly waking up.

"I can't sleep. Do you mind taking me outside?" I asked softly.

"Yeah... Sure. Just give me a second." Carl said groggily.

"Okay." I walked out of his cell and waited by the door.

"Ready?" I heard Carl say behind me but he scared me a little so I jumped.

"Haha. You scared me. Yeah I'm ready." I looked at Carl and realized he wasn't wearing a shirt. I blushed and turned around and walked out the door.

Once outside I heard all of the walkers. I looked around at all of them but one of them caught my attention. I walked over to where the walker was so I could get a closer look. Soon I started running. I heard Carl whisper yelling my name and running after me. I stopped right in front if the gate. I started to brake down crying.

My sister... Stood there as a walker. Trying to get to me and rip me open and eat my flesh.

I heard Carl drop beside me and he started yelling at me and shaking me. I couldn't hear him though. All I heard was my sisters moaning.

I got up from where I was sitting and ran over to the gate. I opened the tiny door instead off the big one which lead outside. I ran between the two fences over to my walker sister. Carl was right behind me.

I started crying even harder as I was right next to her. All that was separating us was the fence.

All of a sudden the fence was starting to bend and was starting to come down. I quickly backed away and yelled Carls name.

He started shooting some of the walkers and than we both held up the fence. I took my knife that I kept with me at ALL times and stabbed some of the walkers except my sister. I didn't always have a gun but I always made sure I had a knife.

I heard some of the others screaming and yelling and running towards us. Once they were with us I backed away but Carl stayed and helped. Carol took me into her arms as I cried.

"NO! LEAVE HER ALONE!" I yelled as Rick was about to kill my walked sister. Daryl knew why I didn't want Rick to kill her and he knew who she was of course and I'm guessing he told Rick because he whispered it into his ear. Rick looked back at me with sad eyes and than continued killing different walkers.

After they were all dead I got out of Carols grip and ran for the big gate. I opened it and ran over to where my walker sister was.

I watched as she came at me but I dodged her. I heard everyone yelling my name and running over to the gate and around the other side to get me.

I took my bloody knife and dodged another attack. I quickly stabbed my sister in the head as we both fell to the ground me on too of her. I kept stabbing her in the head and crying. Soon my crying stopped and I was just stabbing her out if pure anger.

I felt strong arms wrap around me and I started to cry again.

"Shh. It's okay. It's okay." Uncle Daryl said soothing words trying to calm me down. I flipped over so that I could face him but all I did was berry my face into his neck and cry.

Me and my sister were always close. We had small fights from time to time but nothing serious. We were super close but when the world when to shit we survived together for a while but she got bit while getting more supplies. We waited it out but eventually she turned and I didn't have the guts to out her down so I just ran. Took all our shit and ran. I survived on my own than until I found these guys and my uncle.

I soon stopped crying and we all went back inside. I told everyone I was fine and I had a glass of water and than everyone went back to their cells except Carl.

"I'm so sorry you had to go through that." Carl said to me.

"It's fine. It's not your fault anyway. I should have put her down when she first got bit and turned but... I.... I just couldn't do it Carl. She was my sister." I started to cry again. God why am I crying so damn much lately. I'm becoming soft. I really need to up my game.

"Hey. It's okay now. It's all okay. Just go back to your cell and get some rest okay?" Carl said giving me a hug.

"Carl. Can I stay with you tonight. I don't wanna be alone." I said trying to give him my puppy eyes.

"Yeah of course. Come on." Carl said.

We walked to his cell and I lid down facing the wall. My pyjama shorts and my tank too suddenly felt really cozy. I felt Carl get in next to my with only his boxers. I blushed and pretended I was asleep.

I felt Carl play with my hair and than kiss the back of my head.

"I know your asleep so I'm gonna say this now... I love you Lightning. I loved you when I first laid eyes on you. That day I punched you I felt so bad. You started to ignore me and I got depressed. I started to date and sleep with Claire to try and fill the giant hole in my heart but that hole just wouldn't go away. When I saw you get into that crash on your motorcycle I felt like shit. I wouldn't be able to live with myself knowing that you died hating me. I wouldn't have been able to live with myself knowing that you died and the last time out skin touched was when I punched you. I just want you to know I love you and someday I might find the courage to say that to you when your not asleep. I love you." Carl finished and I realized I was crying. I soon heard his soft snores and I to soon fell asleep.
