Beth Greene is sixteen years old and Daryl loves her, but he isn’t supposed to love her like he does.

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.
Over time finding her family had begun to take a back seat to just surviving and living to see another day. She had to face the fact that she may never find them. She had to put herself first. Over time the hope she’d carried deep in her bones eventually dwindled until she could hardly feel it anymore.
