To Only Have You Near by Schwoozie

Beth is skinnier than she should be after all the time they’ve spent safe in the funeral home, and that isn’t helping her keep warm in the depths of winter. Daryl is there—and willing—to give her all he can.

Digging in by wallflow3r

The snow has Daryl pacing the prison like a caged animal, until he finds something that stops him in his tracks.

Christmas Kittens by gneebee

Beth. He knew her name was Beth. He’d seen it on her I.D badge the day he fixed the scrub sink. That was the day, standing there with her, that something happened to him. He was 32 years old and he had never experienced anything like it in his life.

They met at the bar, but she’s nothing like the women he’s met in bars in the past. Then again he’s no longer the man he was back then either. He knows that if this is gonna go anywhere he’s gonna have to come clean. She doesn’t even want to be here until she is. And she doesn’t know she wants someone like him until she does. And then she isn’t sure how she ever lived without him.
