The Biker was leaning against the jamb in the kitchen doorway, a cigarette hanging from his lips and a bottle of beer in his hand. He didn’t typically stand around staring at chicks but this one caught his eye the minute she came in the door. He’d had his eye on her ever since.
Daryl/Beth.. AU – no zombies. He smoked and rode a motorcycle and spoke as if he chewed on gravel. He was everything none of her ex-boyfriends – all two of them – had ever been and Beth knew she probably wasn’t the only woman in this bar with a crush on the surly, handsome bartender.
As the building manager in a newly renovated apartment building, it’s Daryl Dixon’s job to make sure that things are working properly for all of the tenants. It’s his job to unclog the shower drain in apartment A2. It’s not his job to wonder where her boyfriend or husband is when she asks if he can help her put a baby crib together.
After the prison falls, Beth and Daryl are on their own. When they find the funeral home, they think they have found a safe haven. But then Beth is taken and Daryl will do anything to find her. But will he be able to help her after the trauma she’s been through? Will they ever be able to find their way into each other’s arms?
Beth works as a nurse in residence Rosewood, and she’s one of the very few people who Mrs. Dixon seems to tolerate, but when the management threatens to expel the old woman if her behavior doesn’t improve, Beth starts looking for her relatives and runs into Daryl Dixon.
