My attempt at a Bethyl one-shot is no longer that.
“It took a while to get here, it’s been a long hard road and I’m still bouncing back, heaven only knows, how I came out Like a Rose”
Beth gets taken from Daryl nearly a year earlier at the funeral home. She’s taken to Grady Memorial Hospital but from there she’s taken once more. The people that take her, they’re viscous and vile and they can no longer be considered human in a world like this. She has been gone for a year, more or less, and has had unspeakable things done to her. She soon realizes she’s on her own and takes it upon herself to escape and when she finally succeeds she sets off on her own. She’s broken and a completely different form of herself.
With her family living at Alexandria what will happen when their lives intertwine with hers again. Does she still love them? Will she stay? Is she too broken to even heal and come back to herself? Or will new romances brew as the new Beth continues to surprise herself and others.
Daryl doesn’t know if it’s bad luck on his part, or karma on Merle’s, when he gets wind of a rumour that the local sheriff is looking for a hunter. He decides to move on. Stay as far from this kingdom as he can, where thoughts of Merle and his plans for greatness don’t make his heart hurt. He can’t rely on anybody for anything.
