It had been about two months since the prison fell apart, the screams and the blood was all I remembered from that day. The group got split up and we all had to go our separate ways, from what I could see everyone split off with someone from the group, unfortunately I had nobody to go with so now I was left to survive by myself … and protect mine and Daryl’s baby that I was carrying. I had such high hopes of being reunited with the group and with Daryl especially but now with each moment passing I was completely loosing hope.
I gripped my stomach as I felt my baby stir and kick harshly. “Jesus, you’re one strong kid, take after your father.” I whispered to myself smiling as I continued on the main road heading to god knows where. I kept my gun raised at all times always on alert, I’d occasionally hear noises in the bushes hoping Daryl would step out but usually it’ll be a walker or some animal. I stopped and drank the last bit of my water making a mental note to get more. I heard another rustle in the bushes and turned around with my gun raised at the noise, “Hello? Daryl?” I said. ‘Don’t be stupid Y/N, Daryl isn’t there.’ I kept telling myself. I wiped the tear that I didn’t know fell and picked up my bag to carry on walking north.
For hours I kept thinking about Daryl, I was scared I’d forget what he looked like after so long, I kept the same image in my head of his face. His rare but beautiful smile he only showed me.
After a few hours I came across a little village that I hoped was abandoned so I could do a quick supply run. I saw a small grocery store on the corner and walked stealthily towards it, “Pray that no walkers are in there kiddo.” I said rubbing my stomach. With my gun pointing in front of me I quietly opened the door and briefly inspected the surrounding area. It all looked fairly normal for now. “Okay, water.” I whispered to myself as I saw a few bottles on the floor and packed them in my bag. I already had enough food so I continued looking for batteries and such.
I heard a massive bang from behind me and before I knew it I was being pulled down by my shoulders, a heavy weight was weighing them down followed by a sharp growling noise. I tried to grab my gun that fell on the floor but I couldn’t. “Help!” I screamed. The walker kept trying to take a chunk out of my neck, I used my hand and pushed its forehead back til I heard its neck snap and bend backwards. I gagged at the sight but carried on, its head fell on the floor still snapping it’s teeth.
I put my hands on my knees and took a deep breath then I heard a gunshot and the walkers head stopped snapping. I quickly drew my gun at the person who shot the walker and he raised his hands in defense.
“Woah, Woah.” The man said stepping back. “Who’re you?” I whispered, my voice still shaky. “My names Aaron, look I mean you or your baby no harm at all. I see you’ve been struggling, I want to help you out. I live in a community safe zone called Alexandria, please come back with me and all of us can take care of you and your baby.” Aaron said, I couldn’t tell if he was lying or not, his eyes seemed so genuine and harmless but you can’t trust people nowadays, Daryl always told me that. “You could be lying.” I bluntly replied. Aaron nodded, “I could be, but I’m not, I wouldn’t come out all this way out of Virginia to look for survivors in need of help. Please come back with me.” Aaron pleaded, I knew I shouldn’t trust him but I did, he looked harmless and so eager to help a pregnant woman so I decided to go with him, what else have I got to lose?
~~Months into Alexandria~~
“Whats mommy got? Is this your favorite little bunny?” I said playing with my baby girl. I shook the bunny in front of her and watched her crystal blue eyes light up with joy. She was beautiful, she had Daryl’s blue eyes and his nose, she had my face shape and my mouth.
I stroked her soft skin thinking about Daryl, will I ever see the love of my life again? or any of the group for that matter, I hoped and prayed Judith was okay.
I heard a gentle knock on my bedroom door and invited the person in. “Hello sweetheart, hows the little one?” Deanna whispered smiling down at my baby. “Shes okay, spent the last hour staring at her eyes, there like his.” I said a tear threatening to fall. Deanna placed a hand on my shoulder and squeezed. “Shes beautiful you know. We’ll find Daryl, I promise.” She said. “We have new guests arriving here, would it be too much to ask if I asked you to greet them and show them round?” Deanna asked me. I shook my head and stood up, Deanna told me she’d look after my baby whilst I went to greet everybody.
I left my house and started walking towards the main gate to greet the new people. I squinted and saw in the distance Aaron talking to them … then I saw … no … what?
Aaron turned around and smiled at me, I put my hand over my mouth as the tears from all those months came crashing back. “Daryl!” I screamed. I saw him turn around, he instantly dropped everything even his crossbow and sprinted towards me. “Y/N!” He shouted. We both ran as fast as possible and met in the middle where he picked me up by the waist and brought me into a crashing hug.
“My girl … god I missed ya’” He whispered in my ear, his voice shaking. “I missed you too baby.” I said back crying. The rest of the group surrounded us and engulfed me in a massive hug. “I can’t believe this.” I whispered.
“Wheres our baby?” Daryl said holding my hand as he placed a kiss on my lips, the kiss i’ve been craving. “Right here.” A voice said, we both turned around and saw Deanna holding our baby, I smiled as Daryl took her from her hands and cradled our little blessing. “What’d you call er’?” He asked looking down at her. I paused for a bit and looked up at Carol. “Sophia.”
“You have not lived until you’ve seen The Breakfast Club. I can’t believe you never even seen one movie with Molly Ringwald in it. What were you doing with your life before it went to hell?” “Who’s Molly Ringwald?” “Man you have a lot to learn, after this it’s Pretty in Pink. You’re going to love them and be thanking me for this.”

You should keep your gates closed. Why? Because it’s all about survival now. At any cost. People out there are always looking for an angle. Looking to play on your weakness. They measure you by what they can take from you. By how they can use you to live. So bringing people into a place like this now… Are you telling me not to bring your people in? Are you already looking after this place? Aaron says I can trust you. Aaron doesn’t know me. I’ve killed people. I don’t even know how many by now. But I know why they’re all dead. They’re dead so my family, all those people out there, can be alive. So I could be alive for them.
