When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you
don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not
doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or
less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have
problems with our friends or family, we blame the other
person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will
grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive
effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason
and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no
reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you
understand, and you show that you understand, you can
love, and the situation will change

Tray full of fresh lettuce. Ideally you would sow successively, but I only have so many containers I can use in my greenhouse. Only this one is available for lettuce in fact. However, if I would invest in 4, 6 or 8 containers, I could have lettuce ready every week.
ok but did you guys ever just sit there and have realisation slap you really aggressively like yuto is going to be rapping in japanese and i’m going to be choking on my tears and possibly growing lettuces with said tears.
runs into the reader after her boyfriend has hit her. Daryl loses it and confronts
the guy. He comforts the reader and they become close. Smut ending of course…
Daryl watched from the guard post point above the wall as
Mike lead you around by the small of your back, down the street of Alexandria.
He watched your eyes sparkle as you greeted everyone you met on your way, which
Mike didn’t seem to like. He watched as you stopped to talk to Carol, trying to
get into a conversation, before Mike grabbed your hand and led you away, to
disappear into your house. Carol’s eyes furrowed a little at this and she waved
goodbye to you as you apologetically look at her as Mike drags you away.
Daryl scoffed a little and rolled his eyes. He had no idea
what you saw in that asshole. He was always talking down to you and making you
feel small. Daryl hated how he tried to dim your shine. Daryl had noticed Y/N ever
since his group had arrived in Alexandria, the very first moment he met her his
heart fell. The way she smiled at him, the way her eyes sparkled when she
talked, the way her body seemed to call out to him, wanting nothing more than
to touch her and kiss her all over every time he saw her. She had an effect on
him he thought he had long since lost in this world.
He had noticed how she would cover up her bruises, sliding
her sweater sleeves down just a little longer whenever anyone noticed or came
close to noticing the marks. She would sometimes stay inside for days, another
sign that she was waiting for something to heal. Daryl knew all too well of the
signs, he himself had done similar when he father would hit him as a child. It
took everything in him not to kick Mike’s ass every time he noticed these
things. But the way she looked at Mike sometimes… He knew they had been
together since before all this and he was her first love. They met way back in
college and had been together ever since. Daryl’s heart broke every time he saw
her smile up at Mike, how badly he wanted to be the one she looked at like
“I don’t like how that’s going.” Daryl snaps his head up,
after being lost in deep thought, and sees Carol looking up at him with
concern, her arms crossed and her face contorted with worry.
Daryl scoffs again a little and shrugs, “She’s a big girl.
Don’t know why she is even with that asshole.” He says to Carol harshly
outreaching his arm to point to Your and Mike’s house, were you have now
Carol nodded and looked down, “A man like that can have
influence over you like you wouldn’t believe. Sometimes it is hard to imagine
how I became who I did with Ed too.” She admits, staring at the ground.
“I guess…” Daryl admits, nodding his head down, feeling bad
for making Carol feel that way.
“I just don’t get why she’d rather be with him, when she
could have…” He trails off and stays sadly looking at his feet.
Carol nodded again and pursed her lips.
“She’ll realize it someday…” She says and looks up at Daryl’s
sad face. She knew how he felt about Y/N and how for months since they had been
here he had been pining for Y/N.
She loved her sweet Daryl, he was always so much more loving
and passionate than anyone assumed. She saw right through his tough act and she
could see the way his face lit up whenever Y/N was around.
Daryl nodded slowly, as if trying to believe Carol’s words.
He looked up at her, pained.
“I just don’t see how she can stay like… I would never lay a
hand on her…” He trails off again.
Carol climbs up the guard post and wraps Daryl in her arms
for a minute.
Daryl sighs, closing his eyes sadly, and hugs her back,
trying not to feel the tears welling up in his eyes.
Carol rubs the back of his hair a little as she hugs him.
“One day, she’ll see you, Daryl.” Carol says and the stands
back a little to look him in his eyes.
“One day, she will see what a great man you are and after
that, there will be no stopping her from loving you back.” She says, her eyes
piercing into his softly, trying to make him hear her words.
He takes a ragged deep breath, composing himself again, and
“I’ll see you at home for dinner.” Carol says. “Don’t be
late.” She used her serious voice and smiled a little, causing Daryl to smile
back for the first time since their interaction. He nods in agreement.
Carol climbs back down and heads to the house her and Daryl
shared, going to start preparing something for them to eat.
Daryl sighed a little, looking back at Y’/N’s house and then
turned his feet to stand back toward the open space over the wall. His eyes
narrowed and he tried to focus on his task at hand.
Daryl chomped and chewed his food roughly, pushing the
homemade bread into his mouth. Carol had been growing some tomatoes and lettuce
in the backyard, so homemade sandwiches were the best idea that night. Carol
had found a little bit of mayo she was allowed to bring home, making it as
close to a BLT as she could make it.
Daryl chewed on the food happily and looked over at Carol
and smiled through his chomping lips. She laughed a little at him and placed a
napkin neatly on her lap before picking up her own sandwich and taking it to
her lips. She takes a small bit and savors the food. They both sit in
comfortable silence, enjoying their dinner.
Suddenly, they both hear a frantic knock at their door.
Daryl look over at Carol puzzled before plopping his mostly eaten sandwich down
onto his plate and pushing his chair back. He stands up and walks quickly over
to the door, swinging it open. He sees Y/N standing in front of him and his
heart stops. Her face was swelled up so much he barely recognized her. She had
a big black eye, that bulged out due to swelling. He noticed a few cuts on her
face and bruises everywhere. She was shaking like a leaf and looked up at him
with fear in her eyes. Carol walks up behind Daryl and also takes in Y/N’s
“Honey!” She cries out in shock.
“What the hell happened Y/N??!” Daryl asked his voice
becoming loud and angry instantly.
“I… I don’t know… I just… I didn’t do what I was supposed to
do and he came after me… He has never been like that. I thought…. I didn’t
think I was going to make it…” You say lips trembling as you feel the hot sting
of our own tears run down your bruises.
Daryl opens the door to you and steps aside, Carol walks up
to you and wraps you in her arms, with tears in her eyes.
“Come in, Y/N.” She says softly as she leans back and looks
at you with care. She rubs her hands up and down your shoulders trying to
You nod and smile a little, wincing at the pain even that
You walk in to Carol and Daryl’s house and they lead you to
their couch in the living room, where you sit down and stare forward. You had known
Carol’s past with this kind of stuff, since meeting them a few months ago. You
always knew she would be the one you would run to if you had to. But you never
imagined it would ever get this bad.
You sit on the couch trembling and you feel Daryl wrap a
blanket around you, gently. He walks to the kitchen and grabs an icepack that
had been there since they moved in. He brought it back into the living room and
kneeled down in front of you, lifting his hand up gently toward your face.
“Here…” He says softly as he applies the pack to your eye,
putting pressure on it. You wince a
little at the feeling.
“Sorry.” He says apologetically as he keeps the pressure on
“Not your fault.” You say to him looking down.
“It’s my own damn fault.” You say feeling like you should
have known or done better.
“Hey.” Carol begins, sitting next to you on the couch. “It
is never your fault when someone hits you. You did nothing wrong. Nothing.” She
says, staring at you with strong, kind eyes.
You look at her and nod smally, looking back down at your
You notice Daryl taking your reactions in and you can see
him getting more and more upset as he watches you chastise yourself on the
“Damn. Asshole!” Daryl says and you can feel his arm shake a
little in anger as he holds the ice pack to your eye.
“I should go over there and give it right back to him, prick.”
Daryl’s voice growls. He drops his hand and hands you the ice pack, standing up
and pacing the room a little with adrenaline pumping.
“I’ll be back.” Daryl growls and storms out of the house
slamming the door.
You look over at Carol who has her lips pursed and worry in
her eyes. You match the worry she shows.
“Do you think he’ll be okay?” You ask smally.
She smiles a little and nods, “Daryl isn’t the one I would
worry about…. He’ll be okay. Come on, let’s get you cleaned up. You are going
to stay with us for a while.” She says, standing and offering her hand to you.
You take it and nod gratefully, feeling safe for the first time since you
didn’t even know.
Daryl heard his feet slamming against the pavement but
couldn’t feel the impact, he was lost in his head, angry as hell, he pushed
past everyone he passed on the street until he came to Y/N and Mike’s house. He
slammed his feet down and climbed up the stairs, knocking harshly on the door
with his open palm. He thrashed onto the door’s surface over and over until the
Mike answered, with a sloppy grin on his face, and a bottle
of whiskey in his hand. His body swayed loosely and he smiled at Daryl,
oblivious to Daryl’s angry face in his drunken haze.
“Hey, man! What’s up?-“
Before Mike could finish Daryl drew his arm back and
propelled it forward, easily knocking the drunk man to the ground. Mike held
onto the bottle even as he fell and went down with a slow, surprised look on
his face. It took him a minute to realize what just happened.
“What the hell, man!?” He shouted, gripping his eye.
“What you can do it to Y/N, but you can’t take it?” Daryl
asked angrily, with a low voice.
“Mike groaned and grit his teeth, putting together the fact
that Y/N had ratted him out.
“Fucking bitch.” He muttered to himself.
“What’d you say?!” Daryl asked, shouting loudly and getting
on top of the man, hitting him a few more times, as his chest heaved with
“Don’t you fucking call her that, ya prick!” Daryl said
hitting him again.
He straddled the man easily and looked down into Mike’s eyes
seriously, raising his fist again in warning.
“I ever hear that you do anything like that to her again and
I will make sure you end up outside those walls alone, with nothing.” Daryl
said pointing toward the outside world.
“People like you only survive because of people like me. You
ain’t nothin but a fucking coward.” Daryl spat, hitting him one more time, for
good measure, before standing up over the man’s body.
“Don’t you ever fucking touch her again.” Daryl says lowly
before turning his heels and walking away.
Mike heaved in pain as he held his face in agony, he
whimpered a little to himself and rocked back and forth in pain on his
You were sitting in the back bedroom with Carol, which you
assumed was Daryl’s as you noticed clothes and items messily thrown around. You
heard Daryl walk back inside the house, slamming his feet on the ground with
every step, still angry as ever.
“Fucking, prick.” He said to himself as he walked through
the house, trying to find where you two had went. He noticed the door to his
room open, down the hallway, his heart rate began to slow a little as he tried
to calm his breathing. The last thing he wanted was for Y/N to be afraid of him
too. He calmed himself a little before opening the door to his room.
He saw you on his bed, with your arms wrapped around your
legs, rocking a little, as Carol sat next to you on a chair, rubbing your back.
Carol looked up at Daryl when he walked in, with concern in her eyes. Daryl
looked at Carol with a worried face.
“How is she?” He asked Carol, who nodded slowly, looking at
Y/N, who was quietly crying as she rocked.
She moved a hand to Y/N’s face and pulled her hair back a
“She’ll be okay, she’s tough.” Carol says looking at her.
Daryl nodded and looked over at Y/N, who sat there crying.
He walked over and stood over her, looking at her concerned.
“He’s never gonna do this to you again, Y/N.” Daryl said,
looking down at you.
Your breath hitches as you try and regain your breathing, looking
up at Daryl with an innocent fear in your eyes.
“I’ll make sure of that.” Daryl said, wanting to reach out
and wipe the tears that fell on her skin.
You nod, feeling relief at his words, and not even caring
how he had come to such an outcome. You stared back down still in shock over
the events that had played out today.
“I figured you wouldn’t mind her staying in here for a
while, until we can figure out a more permanent place for her to be.” Carol
said to Daryl, who nodded.
“No problem. I can stay out on the couch.” He said, nodding
his head back towards the living room.
“Thank you.” Was all Y/N said, as she stared down at her
“That’s what we do, take care of each other.” Carol smiled
at her, rubbing her back a little more.
“Why don’t you try and get some rest honey…” Carol said to
Y/N nodded and sighed in agreement, “I am pretty tired.” You
Carol and Daryl leave the room and you feel the emotion
pushed back to the front of your eyes. How could he do this to you? How did you
let him? How did this happen? You think to yourself and begin to sob. You cry
and sob for a while before finally falling asleep in exhaustion.
Daryl listened at the door and heard you crying, Carol
looked up at him and put her palm on his chest, as she could tell he wanted to
go back in.
“This is something she’s gotta feel alone Daryl… Let her
feel it.” She pats his chest a few more times, before heading upstairs to her
Daryl sighed and listened at the door until he was sure
you’d fallen asleep. His face grimaced, the last thing he ever wanted was for
you to be in so much pain. His heart broke as he plopped himself on the couch
and thought of your crying face. He didn’t sleep much that night, listening for
sounds from his room, wanting to be there for you in case you woke up. He shut
his eyes and visions of your broken, tear filled face, flooded through his
mind. How could anyone ever hurt you?
Over the next few days Y/N started to heal, sleeping a lot,
and eating when they forced her to. Daryl sat in the corner of the room most
days as you laid there, half awake and half asleep most times. He watched over
you as you rode out your shock and he always made sure that you iced your
wounds every so often as they began to heal.
You had never known what it was like to have a man just sit
there with you, for the sake of your own well-being. You had not had a true family
even before the world ended, Mike had become the only family you had known. You
were an only child and your parents divorced when you were young, neither being
very good at stability or love. You knew very well how to deal with a world where
people were cruel to one another, but Daryl? He was something different.
You looked up at him through the corner of your eye as you
thought about the man. He is staring at a magazine, only half paying attention
to the content, as he haphazardly flips through the pages, his knee shaking as
he reads. You take in his body, letting your eyes roam up his strong, exposed
arms, and to his face. He stared down at the magazine, unaware of your eyes on
him. You smiled to yourself as you watch him nervously shake his leg and lick
his lips. You had always found Daryl attractive, who wouldn’t? But with Mike
you could never ever let that secret out, so Daryl became one of your few
secrets as you stole glances at him anytime you felt was safe. You licked your
lips a little as you watched him, feeling a longing you had long since
He notices your eyes on him and his head snapped up and looked
“Ya need somethin’?” He asked with concern in his eyes.
You smile at his response and drop your eyes.
“No. I’m okay… Thanks.” You say, staring at your hands
Daryl walks over to the bed and stands over you, he reaches
his hand out to grab your chin, gently pulling your face up. His eyes roam your
wounds, that are now healing nicely, thanks to him, and he peers at them
“Looks like it is finally healing. But we should ice it a
few more times.” He said, looking at the yellow bruising around your eye. His
finger reaches up to slightly trace the cut below your eye where Mike’s ring
had hit you with the impact. You lean your head back a little at the sensation
of his touch, he doesn’t seem to notice.
“I’m gonna go get one.” He says and drops his hand, walking
out of the room.
You watched him leave and sighed a little yourself,
disappointed he was out of your view.
He came back a few moments later, with a cold pack in his
hand, he looked over at you and began to hand it to you. You don’t reach for it
and instead pat the space on the bed next to you, signaling for him to sit down
next to you.
He looks at you curiously for a moment before plopping down
beside you. He sits up next to you and angles his body sideways to reach your
healing wounds better. He presses the pack down softly, as he looks at you with
admiration in his eyes, his face is so close to yours you can feel his breath
You feel yourself get shivers when you feel his breathing on
you and try and push the thoughts out of your mind. This was honestly the last
thing you should be thinking about, but he made it so hard not to think about
it. He looked at you with a look you had never known, something so soft and
sweet about it. You loved the way he looked at you. He pressed the pack to your
eye for a moment longer before moving it down to your lip with was also healing
from a cut. You wince a little when he presses it into you and he winces in
response, pulling back on the pressure, trying not to hurt you.
After a moment he retracts the ice pack and looks your face
over again, moving his hand up to your hair, pulling it back and out of the way
of his view.
“There.” He says satisfied at his work.
“Sun’s going down… You should probably get some rest Y/N.”
He said, looking over at the window, where you can see the sun setting in the
Daryl’s body begins to twist to the side, dropping his legs
back to the floor, his back to you. Before he can stand you put your hand on
his back. He stops and looks back at you, puzzled.
“I want you to stay.” You say, feeling your stomach drop
He looked at you with pure shock at first, before slowly
“Okay… I’ll just sit over there till ya fall asleep.” He
said and again tried to get up.
“No. I want you to stay here.” You say softly and you look
over at the bed.
Daryl couldn’t believe your words and his heart began to
race as he entertained the idea. Was she really asking him this? He couldn’t
believe his ears. He chewed on his lips nervously for a moment, lost in his
thought, his leg shook a little and he nodded to himself.
He kicked his boots off on the side of the bed and laid his
body back onto the pillow in the spot next to you on the bed. He laid back and
put his hands behind his head, staring up awkwardly at the ceiling.
You smiled at how cute he was when he was shy. You look down
at him, smiling, before laying down next to him. You turn your body timidly and
look at his chest, you smile to yourself again and slowly lay your head onto
it. You hear his heart beat going crazy and fill his nervous vibration at the
feel of your head on his body. He tries to compose himself and takes a few deep
breathes. You put your hand over his heart and trace it a little.
“I don’t know how to thank you and Carol enough for this
past week…” You say, absentmindedly tracing his body through his shirt.
He looks down at you, watching your hand on him, trying not
to feel the feelings that surged through him at your touch.
“It’s no problem, Y/N. You deserve someone who’s gonna take
care of you.” He said matter-of-factly and moved his arm down that was closest
to you, running his hand up and down your back a little before hugging you into
his body a little.
You smiled to yourself at how gentle he was with you. You
stop your finger and look up at him, from his chest. You smile softly and stare
Daryl moves his other hand down and traces your wounds with
his fingertips, starting under your eyes, moving across your cheek, and down to
your now, only slightly cut lip. He stared into you as his finger moved around
your face. Even covered in bruises you were still the most beautiful thing he
had ever seen.
“I don’t know how anyone could hurt you…” He said softly, as
if to himself, continuing to trace his finger around your face, memorizing you.
You tilt your head up further toward him and peer into him
curiously. Is he really saying this right now? You ask yourself, feeling a ache
for him, you had not felt that in quite a while. You bite your lip a little and
shyly look down, shrugging, before glancing back in his direction.
His eyes never left you as he took your shy smile in. He
loved the fact that you didn’t even know how damn beautiful you were, he loved
the way you traced you fingers around him, and how you closed your eyes when he
ran his fingers over you. His heart thumped louder in his chest as he
contemplated a move, he did not want to take advantage of you or move too fast.
But it seemed that you kind of wanted him to. He took in your eyes, he saw
confusion and a hint of something else that he couldn’t quite put his finger
You look into his eyes, that made you feel like you were
suddenly on fire. You move your hand back down to his chest and rub it up and
down a little. He moves his hand up and down your back in return, making you
lean your head back and close your eyes for a moment. He rubs it more
feverishly and you do the same to him.
“Daryl…” You say with a tone that is half moan and half
“Yeah?” He asks in a low growl.
You force your eyes up into his, “Kiss me.” You say, forcing
the words out of your mouth and staring into him, revealing your hungry eyes.
It takes him a split second before his hand comes up and
tilts your chin up, moving it closer to his face. He looked at you, scanning
your face for any hesitation, he found none. He licked his lips and smiled a
little at you as he moved in. His hand softly cupped the side of your face as
he moved his face towards yours.
You moaned a little, feeling his hot breath so close to your
lips. He slowly placed his lips on yours, for a quick kiss, watching your
reaction. You smile and part your lips, wanting him inside your mouth. He
slowly licks along the top of your lip and slightly tongues inside your mouth,
flicking your teeth a little as he retracts.
“Mmmm.” You say to yourself softly and close your eyes,
leaning your head up further to him.
He stares as you, his thumb caressing your cheek, before
crashing his tongue into your mouth and taking your tongue along a ride with
his. He swirls around your tongue, licking and sucking on it. And you swirl
yours anxiously around his, trying to take all of him in all at once. You hear
him groan a little, feeling your rush, he grabs your face into his a little
more and swirls around your mouth even harder.
Your hand reaches up and you begin to run your fingers
through his hair as he makes love to your mouth. You feel yourself getting more
turned on with every circle he made inside your mouth and you began to tug
lightly on his hair, pulling him harder into you. He roughly slams his tongue
into your mouth, over and over with more urgency, when he does this he hits the
small cut on your lip and you cry out a little into his mouth.
He detaches his lips and looks down at you concerned,
“Sorry. You alright?” He asked.
You smile and nod, “Yeah. Don’t stop…” You say, with lust in
And he smiles in return before carefully plunging his tongue
back into you.
You run your fingers through his hair and sigh a little into
his mouth as he swirls around you, making you feel so good. He detaches his
lips from you and begins to move them down your chin and to your neck, he
grunts a little, not being able to kiss you the way he wanted to at the angel
you were in.
He stops and looks down at your smiling face.
“Come here.” He said, pulling your body into him.
You lift your body up and swing one of your legs over his body,
straddling his stomach. You smile down at him, feeling your core become wet at
the feel of his body underneath you. You rock a little into his stomach and he
quickly moves his hands down to your hips, softly rubbing them. He looked up at
you with a smile that showed pure happiness, you stare at him the same way
before lowering your body down to rest your chest on his and push your tongue
back into his mouth, wanting to feel him again.
You swirl your tongue around him over and over, slowly
sucking on his tongue every once in a while, which always causes him to push
your hips into him harder. Your kiss becomes more and more hungry as you feel
his hands on you. You reach down with a hand and put your hand over one of his,
slowly guiding it to your ass, he groans in pleasure and arches up into you, as
he grips your ass tight with his hand.
You moan out into his mouth, in response, loving the feeling
of his touch.
You detach your lips and sit back up on his stomach, looking
down at him playfully. You smirk and rock into his body a few times, watching
his reaction. He loved watching you on top of him. You grab both of his hands
and move them slowly up your sides and down again. You bite your lip and moan
softly at the feel, never dropping his hands from yours. You stare into him and
you use them again to move up you again, but this time you shove his hands
under your shirt, closing your eyes as you feel his hands on your bare skin.
You move them up your sides and then over to the front of your shirt, where you
make them cup your breasts, you massage yourself with his hands a few times.
Your eyes still closed, loving the feeling.
“Damn.” Daryl growled lowly as you made him caress you. He
fucking loved the feeling of your skin underneath his hands.
You look down at him with a smile and drop your hands,
allowing his hands to take over. He rubs his palms up and down your breasts,
rubbing hard, and swirling his palms around both breasts. You lean back and
ride him slightly, loving the feeling. His fingers pinch at your nipples a few
times, causing you to shoot your head back and cry out to him, “Daryl!” You
scream and rock into him.
He smirks, watching what he does to you, and his hands start
massaging your skin faster and harder.
“Yes!” You cry out again, lost in pleasure.
Suddenly his hands move down to your stomach, rubbing it
harshly for a few moments before moving them to small of your back. He rubs
your skin all over as he watches you writhe in pleasure on top of him.
You slowly move your hips down so that your core is lined up
with his, as you grind on top of him. You feel how hard he is and you snap your
eyes to him in reaction. You move your hands up and down his chest a few times
before moving one of them down to his pants, you force your hand underneath
your bodies and palm his throbbing dick from outside his jeans.
He stares into you as you do this, growling like a wild
animal. You stare back at him and smile at his reaction.
“Do you want me, Daryl?” You ask, cocking your head to the
side and staring at him as you palm him.
He licks his lips and moves his hands to your hips, gripping
them tightly, as he nods. “Yeah.” He says shortly, trying to control himself
from pinning you down right then and there.
You smile and lean
back down, moving your hand, to kiss him. Before you touch his lips again, you
peer into his eyes and say, “I want you to make love to me, Daryl.” You say
sweetly and take his lips back into yours for another long, slow kiss.
He moans into your mouth, in response to your words. His
hands move your hips up and down into him as you ride him, making love to his
mouth. He pulls his lips away and looks up at you softly for a moment, pulling
the hair away from your face and tucking it behind your ear.
“Are you sure, Y/N? We don’t have to do anything you don’t
want to do…” He asked concerned that it would be taking advantage of you.
You smile at his sweetness and caress the sides of his face
with your hands,
“You are so sweet… I’m sure. I want you all over me…” You
say running your hands up and down his face faster as you feel him grow harder
Daryl nods and smiles, he softly pushes you back to your
original position over him, and stares up at you. He moves his fingertips to
the bottom hem of your t-shirt and begins to dance them along the sides,
sticking his fingers underneath, rubbing your bare skin ever so slightly.
You close your eyes, feeling goosebumps explode suddenly all
over your body at his touch. He growls a little as he feels them too, because
of his touch.
You stare back down at him and reach your hands down,
grabbing the hem of the shirt and pulling it over your head, throwing it on the
ground next to the bed. You rock your hips into him a little and feel the cool
air hit your exposed breasts.
“You are so beautiful.” He says, staring in awe for a moment
before bringing his hands up to caress your breasts again.
“Daryl…” You cry out as he caresses you, rubbing his palms
around your breasts over and over again.
He groans at the sight of you crying out in pleasure at his
touch and writhes up into your core harder.
You slam your hips down onto his harder, in response, making
He moves his hands off your breasts and they run back down
to your hips, pushing you into him a little harder, before moving his hands to
the middle you our stomach. He rubs the skin slowly and looks up at your
reaction. You bite your lip and close your eyes, needing to feel him just a
little further down, you rock your hips into him and feel his fingers pop open
the button and unzip your zipper.
You open your eyes and look down at him longingly, begging him
with your eyes. He smiles and moves one of his hands down into your pants,
rubbing along your pussy, which is soaking wet through your panties. He moans a
little at how wet you are, looking at you completely turned on now.
He licks his lips and moves his fingers up and down your
folds a few times over your panties a few times before forcing his fingers
underneath the fabric. He moves his fingers down and thrusts one into you.
“Yes!” You moan and look at him, still begging. He thrusts
his finger into you a few times, before thrusting in another, seeing how much
you love him being inside you.
You stare at him as you rock onto his fingers, his palm
begins to put pressure on your clit, as he rubs it up and down your pussy
harder and harder, as his finger thrust into you. He groans a little, trying to
push his hand into your pants further, he is unsuccessful. He retracts his hand
and you look down at him sadly.
He smirks a little and grabs your hips, twirling both your
bodies over, so that you are laying on the bed and he is now leaning over you.
You run your hands up his chest outside his shirt. “Take
this off.” You complain, needing to feel his skin under your fingers. He leaned
back on his knees, inside your open legs, and ran his fingers down to the
bottom of his shirt, he crisscrossed his arms and pulled the shirt easily over
his head, using his big, muscular arms. You gasped a little as he revealed his
big strong chest and broad shoulders. You absentmindedly run your fingers up
and down your stomach, getting more turned on by the sight of him.
He leaned his body back even further and jumped to his feet
at the bottom of the bed. He grabbed your ankles down so that you were laying
flat and he began to tug at the bottom legs of your jeans. You lifted your ass
up, to help him, and he pulled the fabric off your body, leaving you only in
your soaked panties.
“So fucking beautiful.” He said to himself, staring at your
nearly naked body on his bed.
He slowly pushed your ankles up again, and spread your legs
apart using his big, strong hands. He kneeled down in between your legs on the
bed, he looked up at you and saw you touching yourself as you watched him. He
looked back down and focused his eyes on your aching wet pussy.
“I’m going to make you feel so good, Y/N.” He says, staring
down at your core, licking his lips.
You run your hand up to your breast and cup it, pleasuring
yourself and thinking about how good he is making you feel. You arch your hips
up at his words and he growls a little.
“So good…” He says and he slowly lowers his head down to
He moves his tongue slightly up and down your folds, outside
your panties, making you cry out and arch up into his face. He does it again
and then swirls his tongue up you your clit where he plunges his big tongue
down onto it and sucks and swirls around it.
“Oh Daryl!” You cry out and massage yourself harder.
He sucked and swirled on your clit a few more times before pushing
himself off the bed again. He grabbed your ankles and pulled your body down the
bed, so that your legs were hanging over the bed and your ass was at the bottom
of it. He nudged your legs apart and stared at you for a moment, before
reaching both his hands onto the sides of your panties.
“Let’s get these off.” He says to you and you arch you your
ass off the bed, allowing him to pull them off and down your legs. He pulls
them off you very slowly, gently tracing his fingertips along the outside of
your thighs as he does, until he reaches your ankles. He gently pushes the
fabric down to the ground, letting them fall with gravity. He traces his
fingertips all the way back up your thighs and you moan out to yourself, loving
the feeling of his touch. His fingers trace their way over to your knees and
pull them apart.
You open your legs to him and you feel his big, strong hands
take one of your legs and prop it on his shoulder. You can feel his soft hair
tickling the inside of your thigh as he leans down and slowly plunges his
tongue into your glistening pussy.
“God! Yes!” You cry out loudly again.
He plunges his tongue in and out of you a few times,
wiggling the tip of his tongue up toward your clit a little as he does. Causing
you to cry out to him again. He darts his tongue into and begins to wildly
swirl it all around inside you, as he moves in deep circular motion. He looks
up at you and sees you have your eyes closed and have both hands on your
breasts, pulling them into you harshly.
“Mmmm.” He growls into you, creating a vibration inside you,
and making you feel so good.
His tongue moves up and down as he swirls around inside you
over and over. He moves on of his hands up your inner thigh and slowly pressed
his palm into your clit, moving it up and down for a moment.
“Baby!” You cry out and buck into his face, feeling yourself
so close to feeling everything you wanted to.
He moans at your words, he loved you calling him that. He
moved his hand down and took his lips out of you, kissing the side of your
thigh sweetly a few times, before bringing his hand over and tracing his
fingers down your folds a few times before shoving one inside you. He begins to
thrust his index finger into you over and over, watching as you rock your hips
down into him over and over. He thrusts another inside you, thrusting his
fingers into your pussy as you rock onto his fingers in pleasure.
“Baby! Please, don’t stop!” You cry out in pleasure, rocking
your hips faster, feeling so ready for release.
“Cum for me baby.” He says with a growl and slams his lips
back onto you clit. Sucking on it harshly and swirling his tongue around it, as
his fingers darted in and out of you.
You bend your leg on his shoulder and pull his head into
your pussy as hard as you can, loving the feeling of his fingers fucking you.
He flicks his tongue over your clit a few times and starts to swirl his tongue
around it faster and faster, with each pass putting more pressure onto it. He
slams his fingers into you and sucks and swirls on your clit.
“Right there!” You cry out and grab your breasts, harshly
pulling at your nipples, as his tongue fucks you.
His speed and intensity increase even more and he swirls
around and around, he flicks your clit a few more with his tongue and feels
your hips arch up and tense up as you cum all over his thrusting fingers.
“Yes!!” You cry out, climaxing hard.
He sucks hard and slow onto your clit, prolonging your high.
“Fuck! Daryl!” You cry out in surprise and rock your hips
into his lips harder.
He groans at the sight of you cumming for him and he pulls
up his fingers, moving his lips back down to your folds and plunging his tongue
into you again and laps up your cum. He licks and swirls around inside you and
gathers all he can find.
“That feel so good.” You say breathlessly as his tongue
swirls around inside your pleased pussy.
He pulls his tongue out after a minute and kisses the side
of your thigh gently again, sucking on it a little.
You drop your leg from his shoulder and look down at the
gorgeous man in between your thighs, dangling your feet. He looks up at you and
smiles. He slowly moves up your body, leaving little kisses up your stomach,
your breasts, your neck, your cheek, until he plunges his tongue back inside
your mouth, and taking your tongue on another adventure.
His lips play with yours as his hands come up underneath his
body and rub their way up your stomach to your breasts. He takes both of them
in his hands and begins to rub them roughly, making you moan out into his
mouth, as he swirls around inside you.
After a moment he detaches his lips again and looks down at
you, still rubbing your breasts with his hands. He stares down into you, with
piercing lustful eyes. He fucking loved the feel of you cumming for him, his
dick throbbed in his pants as he rubbed his hands on your breasts, flicking
You stare up at him, loving the feeling of everything about
him. You try and bring your legs up to wrap them around him, but gravity won’t
allow it, so they dangle helplessly, toward the ground.
“You are so beautiful when you call out my name, Y/N.” He
growls, still rubbing on you. You again try and raise your legs to him futile,
as you stare him down, wanting to feel him inside you. He notices your legs
twitching underneath him and he moves his hands from your skin and props
himself up over you, in a push-up stance.
“Scoot up.” He said lowly and you quickly scooted up the
bed, eagerly awaiting what was to come. Your head hit the headboard and you
laughed a little at yourself.
Daryl slide his body back down the bed and to the floor,
standing at the foot of the bed again. You laid on the bed, your legs swaying
back and forth, as you watched him reach for the button to his pants. His
fingers popped it open and unzipped the black denim jeans. He took one of his
hands and slowly reached inside his pants, pulling out his huge cock. He moaned
a little when he took himself in his hand and then let go long enough to wiggle
the pants down to the ground. He kicked them behind him, roughly, and then
looked back at you. You were biting your lip, looking at him like he was the
only thing in the world.
You stare down at his big cock that he holds in his hands.
You lick your lips and arch your hips up a little at the sight of it, your
pussy already soaking wet again for him.
He stares you down as you look at his cock, “All for you…”
He growled and eye fucked you from the end of the bed.
You bite your lip harder and open your legs to him, “Come
here.” You say in a soft, lustful voice.
He lets go of himself and stares you down as he climbs up to
your naked, awaiting body. He walks up your sides like a jungle cat ready to
pounce and your breath quickens as you feel his naked body come so close to
you. You heart races and every cell in your body feels more alive the closer he
comes to you.
He climbs up until both of his rippled arms are propped up
on either side of your head. His chest heaves above yours and you feel his hard
cock throbbing on the inside of your leg. You stare up at him and caress his
cheek, softly staring in awe at him for a moment.
He leaned into your hand and nuzzled it a moment, before
turning to kiss it shortly. He turned back to your eyes and slowly lowered his
head and thrust his tongue into your mouth, pushing his tongue in harshly,
making more room for him. He swirled his tongue around inside your mouth and
you darted yours after his, trying to keep up with his intensity. He sucked and
swirled his tongue around yours faster and faster, until he accidentally bit
you in the process.
You moan out into his mouth and arch your hips up in
response. He stares down at you and begins to swirl his tongue around yours
even faster. He then takes your tongue in his lips and slowly sucks down it,
pulling his tongue out of you.
“Baby…” You say breathlessly, your breasts heaving up into
his chest. You move your hands up and down the sides of his body and slowly
around and down his back. You rub his skin roughly, wanting to feel all of it
“I need you.” You say, looking up at him with pleading eyes.
He stares you down, loving how much you wanted him, he
kisses you shortly on the lips and slowly lowers one of his hands back down
your bodies, until it reaches his dick. He grabs himself into his hand again
and groaned a little as he pumped up it slowly a few times, causing it to grow
Your hands rub around his back, over to his chest where you
rub on him up and down, with more intensity each time.
“I need you too.” He said and guided his cock over to your
awaiting pussy. You open your legs farther for him and stare into his eyes
above you as you feel the tip of his dick run its way up and down your folds,
slightly entering you. You shoot your head back in pleasure, arching your hips
up, trying to force him inside you.
He smiles and leans down to pull your lips back into his. As
his tongue swirls around you, you feel his cock run up and down your pussy a couple
more times and then feel him push himself inside you, slowly filling you with
the biggest cock you have ever had. You moan and groan into his mouth, feeling
both pleasure and pain as his pushed himself into you, to the hilt.
His head shoots back and out of your mouth as his cock
plunges into you.
“So fucking tight.” He moaned to himself, with his eyes
You look up at him and watch him as he pulls a little out of
you again, and then slowly pushes into you again, this time slamming his hips
up a little, causing your body to bounce.
“Fuck!” You cry out and arch your hips up to meet his,
loving the feeling of his big cock inside you.
He looks back down at you, hearing your reaction. He pushes
into you again, this time a little faster, and hits into you a few times,
watching as you bounce with his cock.
“You like that, Y/N?” He asked thrusting in and out of you
You look at him and moan, “You feel so good!” You cry out a
little and he smirks.
“I’m gonna fuck you so good, Y/N.” He said lowly and he
began to slam his cock inside you, faster with each thrust.
His hands reached up so that they gripped the headboard,
giving him more traction to push into you. He watched as you cry out over and
over to him as he slams into your pussy.
“Wrap your legs around me, baby.” He said breathlessly as he
You comply and wrap your legs around his waist, digging your
heels into his back.
“Fuck!” He cries out, closing his eyes for a moment, feeling
you pushing him into you.
You arch your hips up into his, thrusting onto his cock,
finding his rhythm. He looks down at you, eye fucking you again, as you fuck
him just as hard back. You rock and arch up onto his cock and he slams down
into you over and over. You can feel the groan of the headboard squeaking back
and forth as Daryl’s hands grip into it as he slams into you.
You stare up into him as you rock onto him, concentrating on
his rhythm. You ride his cock and put pressure down on your clit as you arch
up, trying to hit It over and over. He groans a little feeling you slam your
clit onto him. He begins to thrust faster and with more urgency, making your
body bounce up and down, you hit the headboard over and over as a result, but
feel nothing but pure pleasure as he fucks you, hard.
“Take it, baby!” He said growling down at you as he watches
your body and your breasts bounce up and down as you ride his cock, loving
every minute of him inside you. You cry out to him and close your eyes, loving
the feeling of him fucking you.
“Yes! Right there!” You cry out as he slams into you and
swirls his hips around, putting pressure on your clit.
He smirked as he watched you cry out, he does it again and
adds it to the rhythmic pattern you are creating.
“You like when my cock fucks you?” He asked slamming into
you harshly loving to watch as you ride his cock in pure bliss.
Your eyes shoot open and you look up at him and nod rapidly.
“Yes! Don’t stop.” You say with urgency, letting him know you were getting close.
He growled and his pace picks up. He fucked you into the
headboard harshly, slamming in and out of you, swirling his hips, and putting
pressure on your clit. He noticed your legs trying to hold him inside you as he
slammed into you, he knew you were close. He looked down at you and saw your
eyes closed and your head thrashing back and forth, licking your lips, and
moaning to yourself.
He concentrated and continued his pace, he slammed his cock
into you, holding himself in you for a moment and hitting your clit long and
hard. He did this over and over until he saw your eyes shoot up and your head
shoot back as you exploded onto his cock.
“Yes! Daryl!!” You cry out, looking up at him as you cum all
You arch your hips up and down grinding your body onto his
roughly, as you ride out your high. Daryl thrusts into you as far as he can go
and stops, putting all the pressure he can on your pussy.
“Fuck Yes!!” You cry out, digging your nails into his back
at the feeling.
“Yes, baby!” You cry out again as he slams into you one more
time, again, holding himself.
Daryl groaned and whimpered a little at the feel of you
cumming over his cock.
Your breathing is heavy as you come down, your sweat covered
body ached in pleasure as you ride out your high. You look into Daryl’s eyes
gratefully and arch your hips up into him a few times, showing him that it was
He groans, his eyes rolling back in his head a little,
feeling you rocking onto his cock that made you feel so good. He stares down at
you and just starts going wild inside you, slamming you into the headboard
harder and harder as he slammed his cock into you. He thrusts into you wildly,
going faster than the speed of light, he moans and groans as he stares down at
you while he fucks you. He looks down at your bouncing breasts and up to your
eyes as you stare up needily at him. His hips rocks into you, slowing a little,
and then picking up speed again. He begins to thrust short and wildly fucking
you into the headboard as he explodes inside you.
“Fuck!! Y/N!” he cries out, shooting his head back and
closing his eyes as he holds himself into you, cumming all over inside you. You
wrap your legs tighter around him, clenching your pussy a little over his cock,
causing him to whimper in pleasure.
“Damn!” He cries out to himself and hits into you a few more
times as you prolong his high.
His heaving body falls down on top of yours and he lays his
head on your shoulder for a moment, trying to regain his breathing. Your sweat
covered bodies heave breathlessly together as you wrap your arms around him.
You unwrap your legs and let your legs fall to the sides of his body, in
exhaustion. Your hearts beat rapidly together for a few minutes as you lay
there together, with him still inside you.
After a while, your breathing returns to normal and you both
come back down to earth. Daryl lifts his body up again, pulls out of you and
lays on his back beside you, still soaking in the experience. He looked over at
you and smiles a playful smile you had never seen from him, it was fucking
You smile back and lean over to him plant your mouth on his
again, lovingly swirling your tongue around his a few times before pulling your
lips away and looking up at him. You caress his cheek softly and stare into him
His eyes soften when he sees your face looking at him in a
way he was sure he’d never seen. He reaches back over and pulls you into his
lips for a long passionate kiss, before detaching his lips, and peering into
your eyes again. His eyes roamed over your almost healed face, looking at you
like you were the most beautiful thing in the world, and to him you were. He
rubbed the side of your face with his thumb and smiled softly at you.
“I’m never gonna let anyone hurt you ever again.” He said
softly before pulling you in for another kiss.
That night you fell asleep in the arms of Daryl Dixon, in
the arms of a man like none other you had known, a man you hoped you’d fall
asleep next to every night for the rest of your life…
The weather remains wet. Wet wet wet. The temps have risen, at least - Easter Sunday it was a lovely 20C in the afternoon. This return to seasonal temperature norms has kickstarted growth on several things.
First, the peas - at about 8" high these sprouts have just about doubled in height over the course of a week!
The wildflower and poppy planters are thickening up and setting out true leaves. The wildflower boxes (rectangles) are never evenly sown, because I just sprinkle the seed mix over the top of the soil willy-nilly. I like the rambling look. Constraining wildflowers to tidy rows would dampen much of their charm, to my mind.
The centre photo is one of the marigolds we planted at Sparks at the beginning of March. Some of the girls missed the meeting, so I was left with a few to take home myself. This one is the closest to blooming, but the interesting thing here is the dark purplish colour of the lower leaves. Normally green leaves turning purple are a sign of a phosphorus deficiency. This can be caused by a simple lack of phosphorus in the soil, or some environmental factor interfering with the plant’s ability to take up or use the nutrient. In this case it’s probably both - low temperatures can cause this problem for marigolds, and they were just planted in a basic sterile potting soil. I’ve amended the soil with a bit of slow-release fertilizer and the temperature is improving so with a bit of luck they’ll rebound. I just used some bog-standard Miracle Grow, because I’m not babying these guys.
Last but not least, my reseeded mesclun and chard are slowly establishing themselves. I leave this planter uncovered most of the time now, but I do keep my sheets of acrylic close to hand in case of violent downpours. If you look closely at the chard (left) you can see the various stem colours characteristic of the rainbow variety. Unlike with the sad marigolds, the purplish colouration on the tiny lettuce (right) is not a sign of a problem. This type just grows like that!
The Lettuce slug is a species of Sacoglossan
sea slug, the sap sucking sea slugs. As the name suggests, they suck the juices from various species of green algae. They are found in tropical areas of the Indo-Pacific and Caribbean. Lettuce slugs grow to a max length of 5 cm (2 inches).
My lunch: couscous salad (just throw some couscous into a salad you like and you’re done, mine consists of lettuce and rocket from the balcony, chives, semi sun dried tomato preserved in oil and rip-off feta cheese).
I would have liked to add mint, but the plant isn’t really growing yet so i figured i’d better wait.
Also it looked way better in real life than on the photo.
Latuca Serriola AKA Prickly Lettuce AKA that one-weed-you-see-growing-on the-street
Prickly Lettuce is not actually fatal. It’s technically poisonous but it is a very useful plant! It contains Lactucarium which is a sedative, it is a less powerful alternative to opium (which I’ll be discussing later). It is a good painkiller, and if eaten in large amounts can be used as a laxative. If you hold it for too long then it can irritate your skin, but it’s not even that bad. Pro? It can be found ANYWHERE!
Toxic rating: 1/10! It is just as bad as grass but twice as useful!
It literally can be found anywhere! It is pretty easy to spot, check the belly of the leaves for small prickly “thorns”.
salad can be so much more than green lettuce drenched in oil - this colourful bowl of goodness contains four different kinds of red and green lettuce, red spinach and beetroot leaves, rainbow radishes, spring onions, arugula and baby carrots.
I like to eat my salads with a garlicky french dressing and a chunk of freshly baked bread - that’s what summer tastes like!
