Lightning's POV

I woke up in Carls arms. I sighed remembering what he said to me last night. I love him I know I do. I'm going to tell him today I just don't know how.

I got out if bed softly climbing over Carl trying my best not to wake him. I put on a fresh pair of clothes and walked out of the cell.

"Morning guys." I said softly.

"Morning Lightning." Everyone said back.

"How ya feelin?" My uncle asked.

"Fine. How's Jake?" I asked looking at the ground. I didn't have to look up at my uncle to know he had an angry look. Not at me but at Jake.

"The lucky basterd is fine.....

For now." My uncle whispered the last part and walked away. I chuckled and went to grab an apple.

I bit down into the apple and almost moaned at the delicious taste. I opened the door to outside and immediately shielded my eyes from the sun.

"Damn it." I muttered. I had forgotten my sunglasses inside.

I walked down to the garden but passed the pig pen first. I threw my apple core in there and sighed as I saw Violet laying there on the ground.

I walked over to the part of the garden that Rick uses to get the food for the pigs. I took a bucket and started to fill it up.

"Hey..." I heard a voice behind me. I turned around and took a small step back when I saw who it was.

"H...hi Jake." I stuttered.

"Look.... I'm really sorry for earlier. I really didn't mean to hurt you. I....I was just lonely. Please forgive me Lightning. I really like you." Jake looked at me with sad eyes and I almost believed him until I saw the lies in his eyes. The way they screamed at me not to trust him.

"Lier...." I said calmly. He looked shocked for a second but soon recovered and took out his knife. I knew he was going to do that so I dodged his attack and grabbed my knife.

I had managed to stay one step ahead of Jake. I swung my knife towards Jakes side and sliced his hip. He groaned in pain and looked at me. Jake tried to stab me with his knife again but failed as I dodged and jumped over him. I landed behind him and stabbed him in the back. I stabbed my knife as deep as it could go and than twisted it.

I sat there crying as I dropped the knife. No one was outside so I just sat there and cried.

It must have been maybe 20 minutes and I didn't notice Jakes hand twitching. I screamed as he grabbed me and tried to eat my flesh. He was a walker now. I watched as walked Jake climbed over my knife leaving me unarmed. I screamed again hoping someone would hear me. So I was backed up against the horses pen with a hammer and a block of wood beside me. I saw Rick and Carl and uncle Daryl and everyone running towards me.

I quickly grabbed the hammer knowing they wouldn't make it in time. I smashed the hammer into the walkers head and slammed my head back causing a tiny pain to go through my head. A single tear ran down my face.

"LIGHTNING!" I heard everyone yelling.

"IM OKAY!" I yelled back and everyone started to jog instead of run besides Rick, uncle Daryl and Carl. I smiled at this and because of that I probably looked crazy.

"I told you guys I'm fine." I smiled softly at them.

"What the hell happened?" Rick asked.

"He came out. Tried to apologize but I saw the bull shit behind his eyes and I called him out and than he attacked me. I managed to stay one step ahead of him and ended up killing him. I stabbed him right in the back where his heart would be if I was facing the front. Put my knife as far as is could and than twisted. Sat there crying for maybe 20-30 minutes and I didn't notice his hand twitching. He turned and he climbed on top of my knife so I could reach it. I back up and had two options and that was hammer or a wooden board so I chose hammer. I knew you guys wouldn't be here in time so I killed him.... again." I said. I was know standing and had my knife in my hand. I wiped the blood off and onto my pants and than put my knife into its holster.

"Wow.... I'm so sorry you had to go through that Lightning." Rick said as Carl came over to me and hugged me tightly but not to tight.

"It's fine. I've had to do a lot worse before meeting you guys. Anyway... we should get rid of the body. We are lucky that Jake didn't have relatives here. Only friends and dumb girls swarming him." I sighed looking at Jakes dead body. I saw my uncle kick his side and yell.

"DUMB SON OF A BITCH! I HOPE YOU ROT IN HELL YOU FUCKING PRICK!" I ran to him and wrapped my arms around him telling him that it's okay and that he's dead.

After he calmed down everyone went inside while I started to dig his grave next to the others.

~Quick Note From The Author~

I finished digging just in time because uncle Daryl walked I've for me.

"Done." I sighed and wiped the sweat from my forehead. I went to pick up Jakes body and uncle Daryl helped me.

After Jakes body was in the grave I started to put the dirt over his curtain covered body. (The White Sheet That They Use On Dead Bodies)

"Carls inside making a cross for him." Uncle Daryl explained.

"Okay. I'll wait out here I guess."

"Okay." With that uncle Daryl started to walk away but I stopped him.

"Hey! Can you take me to get my bike? Or was it destroyed during the accident? Also I need to go on a run. I need some clothes." I said.

"Yeah. We leave tomorrow. It's gonna get dark in a few hours. I don't wanna be stuck in the dark." Uncle Daryl said.

"Okay. Thanks!" With that he started walking towards the prison and Carl came out holding a cross.

I waved my hand at Carl and once he was over he gave me the cross and I placed it at the top of his grave.

"Let's go." I said and walked to the prison with Carl holding my hand the whole time.

Once in the prison I have Carl a quick kiss and went to my cell. I took off my jeans and my shirt and my shoes and climbed in bed. I sighed and fell asleep from a long day. I didn't care if it was still light out. I was exhausted.
