There was no need for chasing, she’d run low on hope. So many circles surrounded her in this place. Beth sniffled as she pilfered through the remaining signs of life here. The attack on the prison had done more than disrupt their lives, it had left wounds so big they’d never heal.
Beth finds herself unexpectedly pregnant in the apocalypse but does not want everyone to know who the father of her baby is. After finding out about the pregnancy, Daryl offers to take on the role as father and help Beth raise the baby. The two grow close and feelings start to reveal themselves.
Daryl finds he can’t sleep behind bars. He discovers that Beth isn’t getting much sleep either. Beth has some suggestions for how Daryl might solve his problem.
They’ve been out on the road too long, he knows that. Too much time out in the wild, and he’s begun to forget what safety feels like, begun to forget how to be around people – how to be around anyone but her.
