F is for “First”
Fandom: The Walking Dead
Note: This was written for the @simons-thirst-squad ABC writing challenge! My prompt was F is for “First” and I hope you enjoy this little fluffy-angsty one shot.
Pairing: Simon x Reader
Warnings: Angst, loss of a loved one, degenerative illness, mentions of a depressive state. NSFW due to the warnings but there is no smut.
