Daryl Dixon is the Number One Driver on the NASCAR circuit when Beth Greene wins the big contest. A chance to meet him and see him race in the Daytona 500.
Okay, so it wasn’t just some reason. The reason was he made friends with Beth Greene and ended up falling in love with her. That girl meant every damn thing to him. She was his best friend. That girl came into his life and somehow became the most important thing to him.
It’s the summer of 1969 and with a draft card looming over his head like a cruel joke Daryl makes the most of the time he has left with the girl he plans on spending the rest of his life with, the girl whose heart is breaking at the thought of losing him to a war they don’t understand half a world away. AU No zombies in this one!
In a dim hospital room, Daryl is seriously ill. Beth and their four grown children are gathered around his bed. Encouraged by a nurse to talk to him, Beth begins telling their children stories of when her and Daryl first met, back in the fifties. And Daryl remembers Like it happened Yesterday.
