35. “I waited and waited, but you never came back.”
Lucille didn’t die by some miracle and joins Ricks group. When Negan comes and speaks of his other wives, Lucille is heartbroken.
Negan, the name was one that haunted me. I was married to him, still am but I lost him a long time ago. He killed two of my group and I wanted to see him. I wanted to see what happened to him, I wanted to just see him, he is my husband after all.
I was watching Judith while Rick and Aaron were out on a run. I noticed Carl hadn’t been around much but I let it be, he’s old enough to take care of himself. Judith was so much bigger than when I first met Rick’s group.
“What’s in here?” I heard a familiar voice.
Chills ran all over me and I closed my eyes. Negan. But it couldn’t be him.
“It’s just a water heater” Carl lies for Judiths protection.
No one knew I was married to Negan, they didn’t need to know. I was told Negans bat was named Lucille but I played it off as a coincidence. I never bothered Rick or the others to see when he’d visit again or if I’d ever get to see him. I couldn’t seem desperate.
“Cut the shit, kid” He answered and I heard the door open.
I sat on a chair facing away from the door, Judith in the crib.
“Damn” he whispered.
I knew it was him now, by his presence, just everything, I had a tear falling.
“Me and Amber could never have a kid, wouldn’t want Sherry and the other wives getting jealous” he spoke to Carl but mostly to himself.
I felt as if I was just stabbed.
“Lucille, you okay?” Carl asked me.
“Lucille?” Negan questioned.
“Yeah, she’s right there”
I felt footsteps approaching and then felt a hand on my shoulder. He came to eye level and looked at me, his mouth agape.
“Lucille, baby?” He asked stroking my face.
“You don’t- I, you have other wives, Negan. You don’t need me”
“Baby, I waited and waited, but you never came back”
“It’s fine Negan, I’ve got a life here anyways, you can be with your wives if that makes you happy a-”
“I still wear my ring, I named my bat after you, not a day goes by when i don’t miss you. Even if I see a woman who looks any bit like you, I think of you. Why won’t you take me back? Not even givin me a chance”
“Because we lead different lives and I’ll leave it at that”
Part two? Let me know pls !! I bet no one will want a part two but I’ll probs write one anyways. lol.
