The vision came when she was focusing on regulating her breathing, ears on high alert for wandering footsteps, eyes closed. It was if suddenly after being alone for all this time, someone was panting right along next to her. Tears trickled down her cheeks when visions of angel wings and crossbows fluttered through her thoughts.
The apocalypse hasn’t really played out the way the preacher used to say it would.
Set some time after “Coda”, the group eventually finds haven in a safe house and starts moving on, while Daryl tries to come to terms with what happened. Little did they know, Beth was still alive…
Beth wants to get hurt in more ways than one.

“He had missed this most of all; feeling safe with her. He’s rarely ever felt truly safe anywhere his entire life. He was on the brink of actual sleep when he heard her. “I’m not gonna leave you.” And it all came rushing back that she was dead.” Daryl is Negan’s prisoner, but he’s not alone in that room.
“Can’t move,” Beth slurs. “Y’got your crossbow nearby?”
“Yeah.” The “Fuckin’ duh” is unspoken by implied. “Why?”
“Was gonna ask you t’shoot me in the eye an’ put me outta my misery.”
“Don’t be such a pussy, Greene.”
…his voice sounded harsh even to him, “Yeah Hun, coffee, black. Thanks.”
He was caught by surprise when no sooner were the words out of his mouth than a small pale hand covered his. He immediately looked up and into the face of a sweet and sexy looking blue-eyed blonde. She smiled when she said, “Don’t call me Honey, okay? Please. I’m Beth.”

Daryl doesn’t need a magazine. The object of his fantasies is a living breathing girl named Beth Greene. And apparently, his moral compass is broken.
Out on the road, constantly moving from place to place, things look pretty bleak for the family as every day the weather gets worse and Lori’s belly grows bigger. With dark clouds gathering overhead, they find shelter from the storm just in time. But as tough as things are right now, Beth knows that every cloud has a silver lining.
Life comes down to making choices. Daryl has spent his life making all the wrong ones. Can a blonde angel save him from himself? Or will he make the wrong choice again?
