I'm Not Worth Saving - Carl x Reader
Prompt: Carl Grimms x reader where he had been ignoring reader after his eye is shot.
Pairing: Reader x Stiles
Warning: screaming/ cursing
It’s been 3 weeks since Carl’s…..incident. At least that’s what everyone’s calls it. Every night you wake up screaming, reliving it. And what sucks worst of all was that you didn’t have Carl to talk to about it. Every time you tried he would run away.
Maggie says it’ll pass, that he’s just in a difficult spot. But 3 weeks was more than enough. You had enough. You had a plan to trap him and force him to talk to you. You were his girlfriend for gods sakes. The plan was set. Enid was helping you with it. She was gonna tell him that Rick needed his help in the living room than you were going to be waiting to lock him in.
As you went over the plan in your head, you heard his steps on the porch. You got ready by the door and lunged to lock it behind him. He turned fast and looked ready to kill. You held your hands up, “ It’s me! It’s me!” You said in a panic. He went from scared to annoyed. You walked over to the couch and he followed you. He sat at the far end of the couch, you tried hard not to yell at him right now. He looked to the floor, avoiding your eyes. “I guess I’m speaking first.” He didn’t give a reply. Your voice cracked as you said, “Carl! Please I’m trying here.”
He finally turned to you, his one eye in a bandage. But his other eye was full of emotions. You held your breath as you waited for him to talk. “I told you a million times (y/n). I. AM. FINE.” He said it in a stern and cold voice. This wasn’t the Carl you knew. Your anger grew. You stood over him. “Then why the hell have you been dodging me!” He stood up in one swift move. He towered over you by a couple inches. You had to look up to look at him. “Maybe because I’m scared. Because I got shot in the fucking eye to protect you!” “You think I don’t know that! You don’t think I don’t feel like shit. That I’m losing sleep over it. Because I know I’m not worth saving, Carl” You sat down in tears as you finished. Carl stood there struck. A couple seconds went by with you in tears and Carl frozen. He crouched next you and makes you look at him by putting a finger under your chin. “You think I regret saving you?”
You were now in hiccups so you just nodded. He sighed before holding your face in his hands. “I love you. I would give my life for you, (y/n).” You looked at him in awe before saying,“ Them (hic) why (hic) are you mad at me (hic).” He gave you a sad smile. “I’m not mad, I’m scared.” You gave him a puzzled look. “That you won’t want me anymore…… now…..that this happened.” He pointed at his bandaged eye. Your anger got the better of you and before you knew it you were yelling at him. “YOU IDIOT! WHY THE HELL WOULDN’T I WANT YOU? YOURE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE CARL. I WANT TO KILL-” He cut you off with a kiss. He looked up at you and for the first time today he laughed. “God I love you.”
