“I have a major addiction to these,” Aaron said presenting forward a box of Reece’s Pieces.
Daryl looked at him and snorted.
“I found them during my recruitment for you guys,” he stated opening the box and offering some to Daryl.
Daryl shook his head.
“What about you? Any secret addictions?” Aaron questioned taking a handful of candy.
Daryl Dixon didn’t consider himself to have any addictions, at least he thought he didn’t. He wasn’t very attached to any sort of food, just kinda ate to survive. He was never really into drugs and alcohol like his brother, he smoked but that was certainly something he could live without. He didn’t have the adrenaline addiction his brother seem to have either, constantly running from trouble gave Merle some sort of thrill. Nowadays running from trouble meant praying for your life and outsmarting whatever was after you.
Daryl shook his head again, “nah not really.”
“What not even a certain someone?” Aaron asked waggling his eyebrows.
Daryl looked at him in confusion although he had a rough idea of who he was talking about, “what?”
“Come on Daryl,” Aaron laughed, “you’re not exactly discreet.”
“Who?” he asked.
“Carol,” Aaron said simply, “lord knows you’re complete opposites but, you just, I dunno you just gravitate towards her.”
Daryl stared up at him with a frown, “I ain’t addicted, addiction sound like a bad thing. Not that I’m saying I gravitate towards her cause I don’t, that’s just bullshit.”
“Yeah okay then,” Aaron responded raising his eyebrows.
“Nah I’m serious,” Daryl grunted getting defensive.
“Yeah and so am I, I call it how I see it Daryl, there’s something, whether you’re willing to admit it or not. Hell you don’t owe it to me to admit anything, but you owe it to yourself at least, you should know that time is precious.”
Daryl glowered at the floor letting his hair fall forward, “you don’t know us, you don’t know what we’ve been through, what she’s been through, you’d gravitate towards her too if you realized, if you knew.”
Aaron smiled, “she gravitates towards you too you know, it’s like you support one another, it’s nice to see, most people in here believe that anyone out there has turned into a savage, unable to feel or to love.”
Daryl’s head snapped up towards him, “hey no I never said love.”
“You didn’t have too.”
