TOOTHACHE (Negan x Reader imagine)

Summary: Y/N has toothache but is scared of the dentist. Negan tries to comfort her"

(English is my third language but I tried my best. Sorry for possibly grammar mistakes:)

…………………………………………………………………..

Pain, the only thing she felt was pain. The pain was so strong that Y/N was already awake at 06:00. She sat up in bed. She got up and went to the mirror. When she saw herself she got a fright. Her right cheek was thick as if a golf ball were placed in it.
Her fingers wanted to touch the fat cheek, but it hurt terribly and she shrank. Y/N slowly opened her mouth to look what was causing her pain.
Great!!! There was a lower molar on the right side. It had a cavity and a very large cavity. She had the complaints for two weeks.
2 weeks ago the cavity was already small, but now it was huge and it hurt. But she could not imagine going to Dr.Carson because she was very afraid of it. She was also very reluctantly went to the dentist before the apocalypse. She hated all the dentists. They fumbled in her mouth and hurt her. When she was 8 years old, the dentist pullee her tooth eith a small cavity without anesthesia and with much effort. The dentist controls later she always carried out with the constraint of their parents. Y/N was happy when the zombie Apocalyose broke out because there were no more dentists.

In the drawer, she found painkillers and took them directly into her mouth and drank a glass of cold water from the fridge. But it was a mistake. She had a very severe pain on the tooth. She pinched her eyes and with her fist she hit the wall. Just then, someone knocked at the door. It was Negan

“Doll can you please open the door, what are you doing in there. I could not see you for 3 days because you did not go out of your room”

“Negan please go I am not feeling well”

“I’m not going anywhere until I’ve seen you and I know you’re doing good.”

Y/N had no other choice and slowly opened the door. Negan stood with Lucille in her hand right in front of her. His eyes widened as he saw her cheeck.

“Holy crap sweetheart what happened to your face???????!!!!!!!

She looked at him with tears in her eyes.

“I have toothache”, She said in a trembling voice.

She began to cry and hugged Negan. She buried her face in his upper body. He hugged her back.

“Ssshhhh honey calm down, I’m here, I’m with you”

He let go of her and held her chin so that she looked into his eyes. He wiped his tears with his fingers. 

“I don’t like it to seeing tears in this beautiful eyes, come to my room and we can talk about ok?”

She nodded her head. He held her hand tightly and they went into his room. They sat down together with Negan on the huge bed next to each other

“Come on honey show me your cheek”.

He easily touched her fat cheek.

She jerked

“Ouch,”

Negan immediately took his hand away


“Ou I’m sorry, I’m sorry……How long did you wait like this?”

She didn’t give an answer and looked at the floor. He asked again.

“Since when do you have this pain?”

“Since 2 Weeks”, she said quitely

“Since 2 weeks??????!!!!!” He asked shocked.

“Why didn’t you tell me anything”

“I was ashamed”

“Honey you don’t have to be ashamed”

“I don’t know, I’m like a little child, I have toothache”

He began to laugh

“Honey we can have toothache too that’s normal. Come on show me this tooth”

“What?”,

“Come on just open your mouth doll, daddy wants to see your tooth”

She slowly opened her mouth

“Good girl”.

He touched her chin and looked at her tooth

“Holy crap sweetheart that’s a big cavity, no wonder you’re in so much pain, come on we are going to Carson he can make a filling or something”

He took her hand and wanted to take her, but she did not get up. 

“I’m not going to Carson”

“O come on don’t be childish Y/N he can help you”

“No he’s going to hurt me”

Negan sighed

“Are you scared?,” he asked

“No no I’m not I-I-I I’m just careful”

That was a big lie but Negan knew the truth she was scared. He sat down beside her again. 

“Tell me why are you scared?”

She took a deep breath and began to speak

“When I was 8 years old a dentist puled my tooth without novocaine”

Negan became angry

“Do you know what sweetheart if I would find this damn dentist, I would kill him right now. When Carson will hurt you I will hurt him too”, he said angrily

“Look I will be there the whole time when Carson works on your tooth”

“Can you hold my hand?”

“Of course I can honey you know that. I love you. And I can tell you a story, 3 years ago I had to pull two teeth of Simons mouth out because he was in so much pain and look at him now he is the happiest man in the sanctuary” he was smiling but Y/N was more scared right now

“I do not know if this experience will make me lighter or more afraid…you know what I have an idea, we don’t have to go to Carson you can do it!”

“Do what?”

“You can pull my tooth”

“Honey I think the pain makes you a little bit funny. I will not pull your tooth, come on”

When they went out the door Negan stopped and turned to Y/N.
 
“Do you know what?”

“What?”

“You’re so cute with this cheak, you’re looking like a hamster”, he began to laugh

She rolled her eyes and hitted him a little on his arm.

“Negan you’re so mean………Do you thing he is going to pull my tooth?”

“Of course not honey so come on”
……………………………………………………….

Carsons room:

Y / N sat on the treatment chair and shivered. Negan brushed her hair slightly 

“Don’t worry honey I’m with you”

“You can open your mouth Y/N”

She looked at him and didn’t open her mouth

“Come on Y/N be a brave girl”

She felt safe because Negan was there and she slowly opened her mouth. Negan held her hand. Carson examined with a mirror and another instrument.
When he came at the cavity tooth, she pinched her eyes and said "Ouch”

He stroked her forehead slightly 

“I'ts okay honey it’s almost over”

“I’m sorry Y/N but the cavity is too deep, I have to extract the tooth”

She opened her eyes and got panicked.

“No you can’t do this come on Negan we are going”

She held Negan’s hand and wanted to get up. But Negan did not move 

“Doll we are not going anywhere.
He’s going to pull this tooth now because I want my old Y/N back,
come on if you don’t do this for yourself do this for me please”

“You told me that he does not pull my tooth but he would make a filling" 

“Well I lied to you”, he smiled

She looked at him angry

“I hate you”

“You will love me after all this is over”

She waited

“Ok I will do this for you”

“Thank you honey”, he smiled at her

Carson took the injection and Y/N became scared

“No you don’t have to, I don’t want a needle” , she said and was holding Carsons hand.

“Honey that would hurt if he would not do that" 

“Ok just do it”, She sighed and opened her mouth.

Carson did the injection . She closed her eyes and didn’t breath.

“Breath through your nose Y/N”

Negan said calmly. She breathed through her nose.

“Good girl you are so brave”

Then Carson took the other medical instrument. It was a dental plier.

“If I won’t make it you have to know I love you Negan”

“Honey come on don’t be ridiculous”


“You will feel a lot of pressure and hear some crack but nothing else, that’s normal ok?”

She nodded her head
Carson began to pull the tooth. Y/N closed her eyes and a tear fell down. It does'nt hurt her but she was scared. Negan wiped her tears away.

Negan went to her down

“You’re doing so good sweetheart”

She was holding Negans hand so tightly that he thought it would be broken.
She had just a very little pain and she felt the pressure but she could handle it because Negan was by her side.
After 4 minutes the tooth was out and Carson put something
inside of her mouth

“You have to bite down”

“You see honey it was not that bad” he said

“Yeah I had so much fun” she said sarcastically and rolled her eyes

“Holy crap look at this hige tooth and this big cavity what made you the pain. You wanna take it with you?”

“Are you kidding me I don’t wanna see this thing again”

They went back to the room. Negan always had to support Y/N because she felt very dizzy. She dropped onto the bed and closed her eyes.

“Thank you Negan I love you”, she said slowly

“You’re welcome honey I love you too”

He realized that she was deeply asleep

“I would leave all of my wives for your beauty”, he said and kissed her forehead.

The decision was made a long time ago, before any of us knew each other.  We were all strangers who would’ve just passed each other on the street before the world ended.  And now we mean everything to each other.  You were in trouble.  You were trapped.  Glenn didn’t know you, but he helped you.   He put himself in danger for you.  And that started it all, from Atlanta, to my daddy’s farm, to prison, to here, to this moment now.  Not as strangers, as family.  Because Glenn chose to be there for you a long time ago, that was the decision that changed everything.  It started with both of you, and it just grew.  All of us.  To sacrifice for each other.  To suffer, to stand, to grieve, to give, to love, to live, to fight for each other.  Glenn made the decision, Rick.  I was just following his lead.

ok but the fact that glenn started team family.  maggie was right and i never explicitly thought about it that way until now.  glenn didn’t just save rick’s life back in atlanta - he put into motion every event that would lead these characters to meet and come to care about each other so much.

team family wouldn’t exist without the selfless, compassionate, caring, pure heart and soul of glenn rhee and everything they do to protect each other honors him and his memory and everything he risked and sacrificed and that’s honestly the most beautiful thing i’ve ever heard.

You were in trouble. You were trapped. Glenn didn’t know you, but he helped you. He put himself in danger for you. And that started it all. From Atlanta, to my daddy’s farm, to the prison, to here. To this moment now. Not as strangers, as family. Because Glenn chose to be there for you that day a long time ago, that was the decision that changed everything. It started with both of you, and it just grew. To all of us. To sacrifice for each other. To suffer, to stand, to grieve, to give, to love, to live. To fight for each other.
