Daryl wasn’t sure when it was he’d made the mental note that Beth loves tinned peaches, but he had, squirreling it away in the back of his mind with other important facts like don’t wipe your ass with poison oak. From that moment on he was on the lookout. His eyes subconsciously zoned in on tins and he checked every label, even detouring down the canned goods aisle when they were on a run for something else. Just in case.
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.
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.
