Now, back to our story ....



Glenn’s POV –

Ten minutes ago the love of my life was … taken.

I started to literally lose my mind …

I could see Michonne … was trying to say something to me, but I couldn’t hear what she was saying.

Everything started spinning around me …

Next thing I knew I was slumped down on the ground, with my back against the prison wall. My face buried in hands.

Ten minutes ago the love of my life was taken and all I could do at this very moment – was just cry.


Glenn – POV earlier that day

“Mornin’, Carol.”

“Good afternoon,
Daryl.” Carol quietly replied.

I watched as Daryl sauntered over to the table Carol and I were sitting at.


“Nice of you to join us, Daryl.” I laughed.

Ha ha … you two. Very funny. I slept in an extra hour and now I got the two of you givin’ me a hard time?” Daryl brushed his hand through his messy hair. “Figures.”

“Ya hungry?”

“Sure am.” Daryl replied, while he rubbed his eyes; still trying to completely wake up.

“I’ll be right back then.”

Carol stood up from the table and walked over to where she had a plate fixed for Daryl.

I knew for a fact that Beth kept him up this morning after our night guard watch, so I thought I’d mess with him a bit.

“Hey? Trouble sleeping?”

“You could say that.” Daryl couldn’t help the smirk that came over his face.

“Uh, huh.” I laughed. “Beth keep ya up this morning? Cause it sure as hell sounded like it.”

Daryl looked up and rolled his eyes at me.

“Maybe. None of your damn business though.” Daryl grumbled jokingly.

“Yeah, well you two better keep it down. I know Maggie and I are only a couple of cells away, but … well … let’s just say you two gotta work on being a little more quiet if you’re gonna go at it all morning.”

“Give me a break, man … you know I don’t like to talk bout that kinda stuff.”

“I’m just sayin’ … you oughta keep it down. We got kids runnin’ round here ya know?”

“Come on … now you’re jus fuckin’ with me.”

Daryl shot a couple of quick nervous glances at Carol as she started to walk back over to the table and put a plate with fruit and an egg in front of Daryl.

“Here ya go. Breakfast.”

“Thanks, Carol.”

We all sat there quietly for a minute, until Carol finally interrupted the silence.

What, Pookie?” Carol pursed her lips, making a fake frowny face. “You don’t think I know what you two were talkin’ about over here? That I don’t know why you’re so tired. Give me a break!”

Carol rolled her eyes.

Daryl looked over at Carol surprised; his eyebrows raised high. “What d’ya mean?”

“Come on!” Carol jabbed Daryl with her elbow. “Who do you think Beth had get up with Judith this morning and baby-sit while the two of you had at it?”

Daryl gulped loudly and looked down at his hands that were folded on the table. All of this talk still had a way of making him feel really uncomfortable. He was funny like that.

Carol had a huge grin on her face while she continued to talk to the two of us with her voice no louder than a whisper.

“Yeah, she told me she wanted to have some quiet time with you … but … quiet is really not the word I would have used.”

Carol and I both burst into a fit of laughter. Carol had just as much fun joking around with Daryl about him and Beth; his reactions were priceless.

Daryl grumbled and stood up from the table about to take his plate over to the wash bin.

“Alright, that’s enough you two. You’ve had your fun …”

Then, our laughter was interrupted when gunfire erupted outside. We heard the rapid fire of gun shots … and lots of them!!

“The hell?” Daryl looked down at me and Carol.

“Too many gunshots – that ain’t for walkers.”

Daryl immediately dropped the plate on the floor, grabbed his crossbow and started to run towards the prison yard. Carol shot off in the opposite direction; immediately getting the kids and residents towards our emergency exit route.

I was right on Daryl’s heels as he ran for the door to exit the prison; we each grabbed a semi-automatic rifle and ran into the prison yard. A barrage of bullets hit the ground and wall next to us. The stucco from the walls came flying off around us; we both shielded our faces from the debris.

“Over here!” Daryl yelled and motioned for me to follow him.

We ran for cover behind one of the buildings. I could hear Rick yelling, but with all of the gun fire

I couldn’t understand what he was saying.

“It’s him!” Michonne’s voice came from behind us; her katana sword drawn.

Daryl looked back at Michonne confused. “Ya mean The Governor?”

She nodded yes. “They’re comin’ in through the main gate.”

Then, a loud explosion erupted behind us. Debris and smoke filled the air.

“Come on.” Daryl waved for us to follow him.

Daryl, Michonne and I ran up towards the front gate, when all of a sudden the gunfire just … stopped.

Rick yelled out, “Don’t shoot! Don’t shoot!”

I turned and looked back and could see that Rick was in breezeway over the prison yard;
hunched down with a gun in his hand.

“There’s people out there!” He waved towards the garden in front of the prison.

Daryl, Michonne and I ran towards Tower One … and that’s when I saw what was happening in the yard just outside the gate.

And, I froze …

There were about a half dozen vehicles that had driven in through the first gate, and had now circled around something. Someone.

Daryl reached out for me and yanked me to the ground and behind the tower.

“The hell? You tryin’ to get yourself killed?”

Daryl started to get frantic. “Jesus Christ! We gotta do somethin’. We can’t just sit here.”

Rick ran up and hunched down beside us.

“Listen guys …” He exhaled deeply; preparing us what he had to say next. “Ya can’t shoot … they got Maggie. Got a gun to her head.”

What! We gotta do something, Rick!” I yelled at him.
“How can we do nothing!” The blood rushed to my face, my hands started to shake.

I looked over at Daryl; his eyes bore intently into the yard. His face was contorted; he looked desperate.

Then, just as quickly as it started they began to leave. And, then I heard her … Maggie. She screamed. I started to run for the gate; I couldn’t hear anything else but her scream and the thud and pounding of my heartbeat in my ear.

A few of the vehicles started to drive away.

“Maggie!” I yelled out for her; I couldn’t see her in the yard.

By the time I got to the gate, Daryl was right behind me. He was yelling for Beth, as he helped me open the large metal gate.

As we entered the main yard, Beth screamed and I could see her now. Two men had a hold of her; one grabbing her under her arms, the other grabbing her legs.

Daryl and I ran for the vehicle; we got so close that Daryl was able to reach the vehicle and he grabbed a hold of the back; barely hanging on. He tried to steady himself on the back, but the vehicle swerved suddenly; shaking him off. Daryl flew off hitting the ground violently.

I ran over towards the vehicles, but they moved farther and farther away down the road; until I couldn’t see them anymore.

I was in shock. I stopped running and just stood there. The only thing I heard was whimpering on the ground near me. Daryl had rolled over onto his back; his hands in his face. He started to cry; something I had never seen him do. He sobbed; the tears streaked down his dirty face.

All I could think was that this was a dream; no … it was a nightmare. This couldn’t be real. This couldn’t have really happened. Maggie couldn’t be gone; she couldn’t be.

I walked back up to the prison yard – I wanted to look for Maggie.

I thought out loud. “She would be inside right now; preparing dinner maybe.”

I wanted to give her a hug and tell her how much I loved her.

I got to the top of the prison yard; I could see there was a commotion. Everyone was running around. People were yelling, but I didn’t know why. I could see smoke coming from the back of the prison. Maybe there had been a fire? Maybe walkers got in? Michonne walked up to me and asked if I was alright. She continued to talk, but I just couldn’t understand what she was saying.
I felt a pain in my chest that radiated through my body, my face burned, and my body started to tremble. I could feel my legs starting to get weak and buckle underneath me.

Everything was spinning around me …

The commotion, the people, the yelling. What had just happened? It couldn’t be real – this was a nightmare and I needed to wake up.

I hit my face several times hard; trying to wake myself. Michonne grabbed my hands and I fell to the ground; hard onto my knees.

My vision was fuzzy and I started to lose it. I could feel Michonne put my arm underneath hers and she dragged me over to the prison wall and dropped me there.

Everyone was running around, there was so much commotion. Rick and the others seemed to be preoccupied with something …

What had just happened? I started to cry; the tears poured down my face. I buried my head in my hands. My body shook with every breath.

Rick finally walked over to me and hunched down beside me.

“Glenn …” Rick grabbed my arm; holding me steady. “We’ll get her, but … they’ve got her hostage right now. But, we’ll get Maggie back.”

I looked up at him and I just felt so hopeless, so helpless in that moment.

Rick shook me. “I need you to get it together. We got people inside that need you. I need you.
We gotta get the gate secured, so the walkers don’t get in, alright.”

I just stared back blankly.

Rick shook me. “Glenn! Get up! We got a fire in the back of the prison; we might have a breach with walkers. I need you!”

“But … they took her.”

Rick lowered his head. “I know.” He put his hand on my shoulder. “I know … but, if he wanted her dead, she’d be dead already. I know that’s not much of a condolence, but … for now they’re alive.”

I started to cry again; tears welling up and spilling over one by one.

“I’m sorry, but we’ll get her back. We can track em, alright? But, I need ya here first.”

I nodded in agreement. I wiped the tears off my face with the back of my sleeve and took a few deep breaths.

“She’s gonna be okay Glenn; they both are - we’ll get them back … I promise.”

I felt defeated, but I knew the people here needed me too. “Alright.”

And, then I realized Rick had said ‘them.’ Them … he had taken Maggie and Beth. I could remember now.

“They grabbed Beth too.”

I know … I know they did. We’ll get em back.” He patted my shoulder again. “Ya alright?” Rick helped me to my feet. “Now I need your help on getting the prison secured.

I looked around at the mess that had been left behind and I realized …

Ten minutes ago the love of my life was … taken.

We’d get her back, but for now … he had her … and he had Beth.

This was a fucking nightmare – it made me sick.


I made my way down to the lower yard, where Tyrese and a few of the other men were quickly trying to repair the fencing. The vehicles had ran right through it; taking down a large portion. They quickly managed to get it upright again and I could see someone was driving a bus down into the yard. They parked in front of the damaged portion of the fence to block it off. Tyrese thanked me for my help and everyone was quickly running back up towards the prison.
I found myself walking slowly; the events of what just happened ran like a movie reel in my mind. I just couldn’t believe that this could happen. He didn’t just attack us this time; he took hostages. He was out for blood and Maggie was his leverage. My stomach churned and doubled over and threw up in the grass beside me.

I threw up until there was nothing left to throw up; eventually, just dry heaving until my stomach cramped.

I wiped my mouth and found my way back up through the main gates, past the tower. I could see Rick, Daryl and Hershel in the distance. Daryl was yelling, pacing back and forth.

I walked up and I could see in his eyes the same devastation and desperation that I was feeling; except, there was something else too. Daryl was like a caged lion, growling, his head down, pacing – Rick was trying to calm him down.

”We need ya here right now.”

“Don’t care.” His eyes leered up quickly then back to the ground.

“We got the fence up, but I need ya to go with us and secure the back of the prison. There was an explosion. We need to make sure no one’s comin’ in the back, make sure the rest of the people here are safe. If they’re attackin’ from the back of the prison too, we need to get these people outta here.”

Daryl got in Rick’s face and growled. “Don’t Care … I’m goin’ after em.”

Daryl started to walk off.

“Can’t let you do that, Daryl.” Rick ran up to him and tackled him to the ground.

Daryl wrestled with Rick and ended up on top of him. Daryl railed off several punches right into the side of Rick’s face.

“Daryl! Stop!” Carol ran over to break up the fight; Sasha was right behind her. “Daryl! Stop it!”

The two women pulled Daryl off of Rick and dragged him to a safe distance.

“Get off me!” Daryl shook them off.

“Daryl, stop it!.” Carol continued. “I’m sorry bout Beth, but we’ll get her back.”

Carol tried her best to reassure Daryl, but nothing worked. Daryl looked over at me, his eyes red and face stained with dirt.

“He took em, Glenn.” Daryl whimpered. His face contorted; his eyes filled with tears.

“We’re gonna get em back.” I tried to convince him … just as much as I was trying to convince myself. “We’re gonna get em back.”

“I’m so tired of losin’ people; I can’t lose her too. I can’t!” He cried.

We would get them back … or die trying, I thought to myself.

Everyone just stood around in silence for a minute; just in total shock as we took in the gravity of the situation. He had been out there the whole time – waiting. Waiting for us to get comfortable; to feel secure; to let down our defenses. And, when we did – he attacked. I’d never forgive myself, and I wondered if Maggie would ever forgive me for letting this happen to her again. Who knows what that sick fuck would do to her and Beth while we worked on a rescue mission?

I didn’t even want to think about it; I couldn’t or I would just lose it again. Rick was right. We had to get the place secured and then we’d go after them. And, this time … we’d kill him …we wouldn’t stop until that monster was dead!
