Now, back to the conclusion of Chapter Fourteen ...

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

CHAPTER FOURTEEN: PART TWO

Maggie’s POV –

I opened the prison doors; the sun was bright on my face. It was already midday – and being that summer had just begun (or so we thought) it was already hot outside. Midday Atlanta sun – hot and muggy. Not really the most ideal weather for a woman that was nine months pregnant. Thankfully, Glenn had picked up some maternity clothes on his last run, which were a lot cooler than the winter ones I had been wearing.

Beth turned and tugged at my arm.

“Geez, it sure is hot out today. Sure you wanna be outside, Maggie?”

“Yeah. I’m fine.” I smiled and tried to reassure my little sister. “Plus, it’s basically just as hot inside – not like we have air conditioning or anything.”

“I guess. It’s just that the heat and the sun can kind of be overwhelming, that’s all.”

“I know. I’ll be fine. Let’s just get down to the garden and get what we need. Won’t take too long and the boys won’t even know we’re gone.”

I smiled mischievously. “Come on.”

I grabbed Beth’s hand and pulled her towards the prison yard towards the first gate.

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


“Gosh, the garden is doin’ so well. Daddy and Rick sure have done a good job, haven’t they?”

“Sure has. Well, who would’ve thought all that work we did on the farm would come in so handy one day.”

“I know … Hey, Maggie. This is the sage, right?”

Beth held a bunch of Rosemary in her hand.

“No, that’s Rosemary. The sage is over there.” And, I pointed to the row of herbs behind it.

“Oh!” Beth giggled. “Well, do we need some Rosemary? Cause I already picked it.”

“Just throw it in the basket already.”

“So, Beth … how ya been feelin’ lately? The nausea gone yet?”

“Yeah, I’m feelin’ better. Only been sick once or twice in the last two weeks.”

“That’s good. Bet you’re glad that part is over with.”

“Heck, yeah! That was the worst.” Beth giggled. “How about you? Daddy said you’re due any day now. Are you and Glenn ready?”

“Well, I guess we gotta be. I mean … I know I can take of the baby, I know that we’ll be fine. It’s just … well, you know...” I paused. “But, I actually had a really nice talk with Rick this morning and he gave me his perspective on everythin’ … and, I feel a lot better to tell ya the truth.”

Beth looked up at me with her big doe eyes and smiled.

”What’d he say?”

“Well, he just said that … well … he’s really not sure if Judith is his or Shane’s baby. And,, Rick just said that it didn’t matter to him. Lori was his wife, he loved her, and Judith was his daughter in his eyes.”

“Wow.”

“Yeah. And, it just didn’t matter if he was her biological father or not – he’s Judith’s daddy and that’s all that matters.”

“Well, I’m sure Glenn feels the same way, don’t you?”

“Of course! I know Glenn does; he loves me and he’s gonna love this baby – we both are. It’s just somethin’ that’s been in the back of my mind. You know?”

Beth nodded her head in agreement.

“Well, one thing I do know for sure is that you’re gonna be just the best momma.”

“You too!”

“Thanks, Maggie.”

“So … when you and Daryl gonna tell the Council about the baby?”

“Well, Daddy and Daryl are already on the Council and Carol already suspects. So, in reality … the Council already knows.”

“Yeah, but you two haven’t told Rick or the rest of the group. You thought about when you might do that?”

“Yeah. Actually, Daryl has been havin’ a hard time keepin’ it a secret. He’s such a private person, especially, when it comes to me and him. But, he’s kind of burstin’ at the seams to tell everyone … it’s really cute.”

“So, badass Daryl is actually just a big softie.” Beth and I laughed.

“No, he’s just excited to be a dad, I guess. I mean, he was real nervous bout it at first whereas
I’ve been pretty calm about it the whole time. It just is what it is, ya know?”

“He’s nervous about havin’ the baby?”

“No, he’s excited to be havin’ the baby – nervous about bein’ a dad.”

“Oh, I can see that.”

“Yeah, with the experience he had with his father; he’s just a little anxious.”

“Well, Daryl’s gonna be an awesome dad. I hope you tell him that.”

“I do tell him that – everyday. I think he’s gonna be a great dad. I know if my baby has a chance to make it in this world; Daryl’s gonna make sure that happens.”

“He will.”

“Yeah, I know …”

Our sisterly bonding was quite rudely interrupted by the increasing groaning and moaning coming from beyond the main fence.

“Gawd … these freakin’ things are seriously piling up!” Beth looked up angrily towards the fence.

“I know – it’s gettin’ bad. I think the Council is working on some better solutions to the build up. Nothin’ to worry bout.”

“I hope so.”

Then, I heard something in the distance …

I turned to Beth. “Do you hear that?”

Beth perked up her head and strained to listen. “Yeah. Are those cars? Trucks?” Beth’s face got serious as she continued. “We’re not waitin’ for anyone to get back from a run, are we?”

“No …”

Before I could get the rest of the sentence out of my mouth, I saw them … Humvees and trucks barreling down the road; heading straight for the prison.

Beth ran over to me and tried yanking me by my arm to my feet.

“Get up, Maggie!! Run!!”

We started to run up the hill towards the main gate.

“Come on, Maggie. Run!!”

Beth continued to pull on my arm as we ran; trying her best to help me up the hill. And, then came the gunfire followed by a loud explosion. I saw smoke and fire rise from the back of the prison.

With all the commotion, I could hear Rick’s voice yelling to someone. “Open the gates! Open the gates! Maggie and Beth are out there!”

Then, we heard a loud crash; the vehicles had run through the first gate. Gunshots rang through the air; shots were being fired from Rick and the rest of the guards. There was a lot of yelling, and there were so many guns being fired … but, the funny thing was I could barely hear them – just sound of my breath as I desperately ran towards the gate.

I could only focus on running and the sound of my breath, the rest was silent. That was at least until Beth screamed and fell to the ground, bringing down to the ground with her. I fell hard on my hands and knees, and looked back to see the vehicles closing in on us.

I looked to Beth and screamed. “Leave me – Run!!” I knew she wouldn’t make it if she had to drag me up the hill.

“I’m not going to leave you, Maggie.”

She pulled herself over to me, and then I saw that she had been shot in the leg. She was bleeding.

“Oh, my God, Beth! Come here!”


She must have been in shock, because she wasn’t even crying.

“Come here; it’s going to be okay.”

I reached for my head and pulled off the handkerchief that had been holding my hair back. I rolled it tight and then tied it quickly on Beth’s leg; just above where the bullet entered.

The vehicles pulled up around us; circling us. The gunfire stopped from the prison and I could hear Rick yell out, “Stop firing! Stop firing! Beth and Maggie are there, we don’t have a clear shot.”

Some one jumped out of one of the vehicles and ran up to me. I looked up but I couldn’t see him because the sun was so bright in my eyes. He yanked me to my feet, put his arm around my neck and I could feel the muzzle of the gun in my temple. My mind was racing.

I tried to escape, I jammed me elbow into the man’s stomach; he let out a loud “Oomph!” and released me. I tried to run but I quickly had several sets of hands on me dragging me back towards the vehicle. I was then pulled into the back of the vehicle, and the door to the vehicle closed shut. As they began to bind my arms behind my back, I could see two men had grabbed Beth and were dragging her back towards their vehicle. My eyes welled up with tears that began to overflow uncontrollably down my cheeks.

The men in the vehicle began to yell “Let’s get out of here!”

I could feel the vehicle speed off and I could hear it peel out as it kicked up rocks and gravel. A linen cloth was then pulled tight over my eyes, but I could still hear her screaming. Then, I heard Glenn’s voice in the distance; he was screaming my name. Daryl was screaming for Beth.

My heart beat thumped loudly in my ear.

What was going on?

My breath became short and shallow; I started to hyperventilate.

It was all such a blur … how did this happen?


I started to feel dizzy and felt myself start to go … everything went to black and I passed out.

END CHAPTER FOURTEEN: PART TWO


Notes

So, it has begun! Dun, dun, dun ... The Governor made his move ... and he got to Maggie. Poor thing, she just can't catch a break ;)

This story is amazing! I love the way you're having The Governor be more like he was in the comics... poor Maggie! I also like that while this is mainly about Maggie and The Governor, you've put some Bethyl in there. Can't wait for the next chapter!
