Last Day On Earth
heyy, can I request an imagine based off of 6th season’s last episode,
but put Daryl and the reader instead of Rick & Maggie
This was so much fun to write! Enjoy xx
Pain. Fear and more pain.
These are the words that shoot through your mind when you suddenly felt like someone stabbed a knife into your uterus and is cutting you from the inside out.
You can’t even quite remember what happened but Enid cut your hair a little shorter for you to handle and suddenly you felt this sharp pain inside of you and fell to the ground screaming while holding on to your stomach with your unborn child inside.
Daryl.”, you cry out in pain while you try to find a position that
makes the pain a little less awful.
Enid looks at you with a shocked look on her young face and stands still before you yell at her again an she makes her way out of the house while you curl up in the fetal position and cry silently in pain.
You never meant for her to see something like that, to shock her like that.
She just wanted to cut your damn hair.
Daryl storms in after a few minutes and falls on his knees to look at
you with a worried look on his face.
The two of you have been in a relationship ever since the prison and you being pregnant was a big surprise for the both of you.
But you managed to adjust to the fact and were truly happy, as well as your friends.
seeing you on the ground now just makes his face turn into a worried
one and panic reflects in his eyes as he doesn’t know how to handle
“She needs a doctor. We should get her to the Hilltop.”, he mumbles and carefully picks you up.
“Get the others that are still here. Aaron, Abraham, Sasha, Carl. Hell, get Eugene but get them. NOW!”, he looks at Enid and she nods before running back outside.
gonna be fine, you hear me? The baby’s gonna be fine. Nothing bad is
gonna happen today.”, he whispers more to himself than to you and
you can feel yourself starting to sweat in heat and to shake in cold
at the same time.
Daryl quickly carries you over to the RV and lays you down on the bed before placing a blanket over you and giving you a kiss on the forehead.
“Try to stay awake, ‘kay?”, he looks at you before he heads out again and talks to the others.
can’t quite catch what they are talking about but suddenly everyone,
including Eugene and Carl, climbs into the RV and they close the
The engine start to howl and you can feel a presence next to you.
“How are you feeling?”, Aaron’s voice rings out and your eyes start to flatter while you try to speak.
“Ssh. You don’t have to talk.”, he wipes some hair out of your face and you nod before closing your eyes again.
“What the bitch?”, you can hear Abraham speak out and he slows down the RV before Daryl’s voice sounds up.
“Enemy close.”, Abraham answers and suddenly Daryl is by your side, looking down on you.
“We’ll check this thing out and then we will get you to the Hilltop, I promise. Yo”, he presses his lips on your sweaty forehead and leaves the RV with the others.
don’t know how long you have tried to stay awake but it obviously
didn’t last for long because you slide into a painful and sweaty dram
while your whole body shakes in chills and fever.
Suddenly you can hear shots and open your eyes in fear for your friends, when the door is suddenly opened and all of them reenter the RV again.
“Are we close?”, you whisper and Daryl nods while you try to find the strength to talk.
“Yeah. We’re..we’re getting there.”, he assures you and you close your eyes before continue to talk.
“Where there – I heard gun shots.”
“Yeah, the Saviors. But they’re gone. We are.”, he takes your hand and the two of your hold on to each other while you look at each other.
“We’re gonna get you there.”, he mumbles and you nod. “I know.”
“You’re gonna be okay. The baby’s gonna be okay. This isn’t it. This isn’t it. There’s more. There’s gonna be more.”, he looks down on the ground and you squeeze his hand.
“I believe in you, Daryl.”, you smile sadly before closing your eyes again.
what seems like another lifetime you open your eyes again and realize
it’s already dark outside.
“We have to get you out of the RV and get to the Hilltop without it. I promise you, we will make it.”, Aaron shows up next to you and wraps you in more blankets before he and Daryl both take one end of the makeshift litter and carefully carry you out of the RV where Eugene gives you a warm look and Sasha and Abraham support them by carrying you into the woods.
You can feel the coldness around you crumbling under your blanket and making you shake even more.
“Aaron please. Let me walk.”, you look over to him and he shakes his head. “Relax. Just a few more miles.”, he reassures you and keeps on walking you through the woods with the others.
Suddenly there is whispering around you and you can feel the others around you starting to tense.
Confused you try to understand but they just keep walking faster with you through the foggy woods.
that’s when it happens. Within a few seconds there are lights shining
down on all of you and Aaron, Abraham and the others look around in
panic while Daryl reaches out for you immediately.
“Good. You made it. Welcome to where you’re going. We’ll take your weapons. Now.”, you can hear someone speak up but you’re too weak to find the person who is talking.
You also hear Eugene between them and try to get stronger.
“We can talk about.”, Aaron tries to talk but is quickly shut down.
“We’re done talking. Time to listen. That’s yours, right? Yeah, it’s yours.
Let’s get her down and get you all on your knees. Lots to cover.”, the voice talks again and suddenly someone is approaching your litter.
“Hold up. We got it.”, Abraham growls and they carefully start to put you down.
“Sure, sure. Gonna need you on your knees.”, you finally see a face to the voice and spot a man with a mustache and a lot of other people around him. Hundreds. Saviors.
Still in pain you do what you were told and try to keep your body away from falling to the ground.
“You got people to meet.”, a blonde guy with a burned side of his face walks towards a car and opens it’s back door to release whatever is in there.
Within seconds Rick, Michonne, Glenn, Maggie and Rosita fall on the ground next to you.
right. We got a full boat. Let’s meet the man!”, the guy with the
mustache knocks on the door of the RV and it’s door is swung open
before a man in a leather jacket and a baseball bat wrapped in razor
wire on his shoulder walks out of it.
“Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we’re getting close.
It’s gonna be pee-pee pants city here real soon.
Which one of you pricks is the leader?”, he smiles and you can barely keep it together but you try to be strong for the others.
“This one.”, another savior points at Rick and you’re still trying to get your shaking body under control.
“Hi. You’re Rick, right? I’m Negan.
And I do not appreciate you killing my men.
Also, when I sent my people to kill your people for killing my people, you killed more of my people.
Not cool. Not cool.
You have no idea how not cool that shit is.
But I think you’re gonna be up to speed shortly.
You are so gonna regret crossing me in a few minutes.
Yes, you are.
You see, Rick, whatever you do, no matter what, you don’t mess with the new world order.
And the new world order is this, and it’s really very simple.
So, even if you’re stupid, which you very may well be, you can understand it.
You ready? Here goes.
Pay attention.”, he smiles and walks around in front of you while sweat is dropping from your face to the ground.
“Give me your shit or I will kill you.
Today was career day.
We invested a lot so you would know who I am and what I can do.
You work for me now.
You have shit, you give it to me.
That’s your job.
Now, I know that is a mighty big, nasty pill to swallow, but swallow it you most certainly will.
You ruled the roost. You built something. You thought you were safe.
I get it.
But the word is out. You are not safe. Not even close.
In fact, you are pegged, more pegged if you don’t do what I want.
And what I want is half your shit.
And if that’s too much, you can make, find, or steal more, and it’ll even out sooner or later.
This is your way of life now.
The more you fight back, the harder it will be.
So, if someone knocks on your door you let us in.
We own that door.
You try to stop us and we will knock it down.
You understand?”, he walks back to Rick and points with the bat at him, making all of you gasp in fear.
no answer? You don’t really think that you were gonna get through
this without being punished, now, did you? I don’t want to kill you
Just want to make that clear from the get-go.
I want you to work for me.
You can’t do that if you’re dead, now, can you? I’m not growing a garden.
But you killed my people, a whole damn lot of them.
More than I’m comfortable with.
And for that, for that you’re gonna pay.
So, now I’m gonna beat the holy hell outta one of you.
This…this is Lucille, and she is awesome.
All this, all this is just so we can pick out which one of you gets the honor.”, he shows you his bat a little closer and you immediately start shaking more because you are more than afraid of what might happen next.
Ugh, I gotta shave this shit.
You got one of our guns. Whoa. Yeah. You got a lot of our guns.
Shit, kid, lighten up. At least cry a little.”, Negan laughs ans looks over to you with a raised eyebrow.
“Jesus. You look shitty. I should just put you out of your misery right now.”, he laughs and Daryl suddenly jumps over to you while you’re trying to stay strong in front of him.
As you look in the faces of your friends you can see fear and panic in their eyes.
For the first time, they are really scared to death.
“No! No!”, he gets beaten down by one of the saviors, making you cry out in fear for him.
it! God! Nope. Nope, get him back in line.”, he sighs and Daryl
gets thrown in the dirt at the spot where he used to kneel down
“All right, listen. Don’t any of you do that again. I will shut that shit down, no exceptions.
First one’s free.
It’s an emotional moment, I get it.
Sucks, don’t it? The moment you realize you don’t know shit.”, he smiles again and walks around in front you and your friends again, while all of you shake in fear.
“I simply cannot decide.
I got an idea.
Eenie meenie miney mo catch a tiger by his toe.
If he hollers let him go.
My mother told me to pick the very best one and you are it.”, he points at all of you with his bat while he says his stupid poem to decide who is going to die.
Afraid you stare over to Daryl in fear for you, your baby and it’s father.
But also in fear for anyone else.
And then suddenly he is done.
picked his victim and someone is going to die now.
So you close your eyes and say your prayers while you hope that everything maybe will be okay after all.
That all of you will make it home safe and sound.
