Taking the Long Way Around (a Walking Dead One Shot, Caryl).
So. Sorry for the completely uninspired title, lol, but I hope you enjoy this little story of mine anyway. Apparently, you’re going to get lots of these while I work my way through the horrendous block I’m suffering through with my other stories. I hope you don’t mind too terribly much.
Inspired by this dialogue prompt: “Take the long way around."
A post-Season 7 fluff piece. Probably post-Season 8 or 9 or Series Finale with the pacing on this maddening show, lol, but I hope it gives you the happy feels, nonetheless.

world. All the bullshit is stripped
