Maggie's Nightmare

Maggie's Nightmare: Chapter Two

Maggie's POV
It's been god awful hot lately. Maybe it's me or maybe it's the pregnancy, but I swear I've never felt a spring this hot in my life. I spent just a half hour picking vegetables with Carol, and I'm literally covered in sweat. It was worth it though; Carol and I were able to cook dinner for everyone tonight; wasn't the best in the world but was the worst either. I never really was that great of a cook, but with this big belly I've been put on kitchen duty. Although I'm more comfortable working shifts guarding the prison gates, once I got to about 5 months everyone insisted I lay off the 12 hour watch shifts and switch to a lighter work load. I protested at first, but even at 5 months I felt huge and I knew it was only going to get worse so I agreed to take it easy.

Glenn has been the best with all of this, always checking on me to see if I'm hungry, seeing if I'm comfortable, and asking me if I need anything. He's a bit of a hovercraft, but I think it's sweet. He's always been so protective of me. Even considering the circumstances, Glenn has been nothing but supportive. Early on in the pregnancy, we had some difficult times. I remember when I first told him that I was pregnant. At first Glenn was stunned, in shock I guess. It really shouldn't have been too much of a surprise. We had been having unprotected sex and we weren't using birth control. I guess contraception never really crossed our minds in those moments when we were able to steal a brief moment or two alone together.

Maggie's POV: Memory of when she told Glenn she was pregnant.
I brought Glenn up to the top of the prison, to a section of the cells that we sometimes used when we wanted to be together. I sat him down on one of the prison cots, and sat down beside him. "What's wrong, is there something wrong Maggie?" Glenn was genuinely concerned. I don't what he thought I was going to say, but it certainly was not what I was about to tell him.
"Glenn, I'm pregnant." Then, I just paused and waited for his response. He looked back at me with his mouth agape – stunned. It was pretty funny at the moment. I guess even in this world, there are things that can still surprise you.

Finally, Glenn processed what I said and I could see his eyes widen. He looked excited at first and then a little scared, I must say. "Pregnant? Are you sure? I mean, how can you be sure? Have you taken a pregnancy test, yet?" Glenn rattled off questions so fast I could barely understand him. "Geez, Glenn! Calm down!"

I smiled and placed my hand over Glenn's hand to reassure him. Glenn shook his head, as if to wake himself up from a dream; to get some focus. "I don't mean anything by that, Maggie. I just wanted to know … how can you be sure?"

"Well, it's been three months and I haven't gotten my period. So, either I'm pregnant or something is seriously wrong with me."

Glenn looked confused, "Wait a minute … you've known for three months and are just now telling me?" He seemed a bit hurt. "It was never my intention to hurt you by waiting to tell you. I just didn't quite believe it myself the first month or so. Well, that is until I started getting sick in the mornings; that pretty much confirmed it for me though." Glenn nodded, "So, that's why you were getting sick. Makes a lot of sense now."

"Yeah, well. As I said before, I'm sure … I'm pregnant!" I smiled softly at him and he leaned in and hugged me. "I'm so happy, Maggie." He kissed me and held my face in his hands. "I love you so much, Maggie." He kissed me again and pulled me close to him and just held me. I felt so safe with Glenn, and I have always known that he loved me and would protect me. I also knew that although this baby would be born into a world very different than the one me and Glenn were born into … I knew one thing; this child would be always be loved and protected. That's the most any mother can ever hope for. The future of us all may be unknown, but it is our bond, our love, our family that we've created here that makes any future possible.

Glenn held onto me for what seemed like an hour, before my father called out looking for us. Everyone kind of knew this was our secret part of the prison, and if we couldn't be found elsewhere that we could be found here. Trying to keep things from people was a hard task when you are living in such close quarters, I always told myself. No more room to be shy, no more room to have secrets. My father called out again, "Maggie? Glenn? You two up there? It's time for dinner, come on down now. "Yeah, Dad. Up here, be down in a minute." Glenn got up and then yelled down to my father. "Actually, Hershel … can you wait just a minute, Maggie and I need to talk to you?" I grabbed Glenn by the arm, pulled him down towards me and whispered, "What the hell do you think you're doing?" Glenn looked deep into my eyes, "Maggie, if you are pregnant, we need to have your father at least take a look at you and make sure everything is okay." He had a point, I guess. I really wasn't sure how far along and it certainly cannot hurt for him to take a look at me.

We met my father at the base of the staircase. My father looked concerned, "Well, you two … what is it? Everything alright?" Glenn motioned towards one of the empty cells, "Can sit down for a minute and talk?" My father made his way into the cell and flopped down onto the cot. "So, what's going on with you two?" I sat down next to my father, put his hands in mine. "I'm pregnant, Dad. Glenn and I are having a baby." My father's face lit up, I hadn't seen him this happy in ages. "I'm gonna be a grandpa? Oh, well, this is definitely a cause for a celebration!" My father leaned in, hugged me tight and kissed me on the cheek. "I'm so happy for you two, really I am."

Glenn smiled back at my father and then leaned in towards the cot and spoke quietly, "You see, Hershel. Maggie just now told me about it and she doesn't even know how far along she is or anything like that. Do you think you take a look at her and hold off on telling the group for just a bit?" My Dad of course said he would; in fact, he insisted on doing so that very moment. My father asked Glenn to fetch a few things from the infirmary so he could examine me properly. Glenn returned in minutes, and my father went to work …checking my blood pressure, temperature, and finally giving me a pelvic exam. "You know sweetheart … by the feel of the size of your uterus, I would guess you were a little more than three months. You sure you got your dates right?" I looked at him as if he were crazy, "Yes, I'm sure. I know the date of my last period, September 4th." My father did his calculations in his head, "Well, that would mean conception happened between September 12th-October 2nd. Means you are about three months along now and the baby will be due sometime between June and July. Hmmm …. still doesn't explain why the baby feels so big so soon. Let's definitely keep a close eye on things, okay sweetheart?" I thanked my father, and asked if he would send Glenn back into the cell with me.

When Glenn returned, I told him that everything looked good and that by the date of my last period that would have meant we conceived our child sometime between September 12th and October 2nd and would be due sometime between June and July. "So, your father said the baby was conceived when? Some time between September 12th, right?" I nodded. "And, October 2nd?" I nodded again. "Yes, why?" Glenn closed his eyes and rubbed his hands on his face, and kept them over his mouth. "What's wrong, Glenn?" Glenn stared back at me intensely, "Maggie, that was during the time that we were imprisoned at Woodbury and during the war with the Governor. You and I … you and I weren't together like that during that time, remember? We went out for supplies on September 13th, the day after Judith was born. Merle kidnapped us on the 13th and we were at Woodbury for over a week." I knew where he was going with this, but I just was not going to say it out loud. "Maggie, look at me. We were not intimate during that time. You would have been on your period the week before, we were at Woodbury the week after your period, and you wouldn't let me touch you for almost a month after we got back." All I could do was stare back at him. He shook me as if to awaken me from my nightmare. "Maggie, is there something you want to tell me? What the hell is going on here? What really happened at Woodbury?"

My mind was racing. I couldn't respond, I couldn't even look him in the face. Tears began to flow from me eyes and I thought to myself 'I had withheld information from Glenn when we got back from Woodbury. I figured what good would it do to tell my boyfriend that I had been raped; really what good would it have done under those circumstances? I just wanted to forget it ever happened. And, by telling Glenn it would just make it all too real. I had to experience what that vile man did to me once, and I did not want to relive it again and again by telling Glenn all about it. But, here we are … months later, and I am going to have to tell Glenn what really happened, what "The Governor" had done to me to try and break me and get me to tell him the location of the prison.'

Glenn sat beside me, "I'm not mad Maggie; I'm not upset. I just want to know the truth and I want to know you are okay. Trust me, I love you so much all I want to do is to just want be here for you. Please ... please will you tell me what happened in Woodbury?" I burst into tears and wrapped my arms around him and began to tell him the one secret I had been keeping from him the last few months, the one secret that could ruin everything.

END CHAPTER TWO

Notes

Reviews and comments keep the chapters coming - good, bad or indifferent. All constructive crtiques are welcome.

And, to answer your question, yes, my name is Dahlia ... and I'm a review-a-holic, but I've made my peace with it ;)

It just makes me sooooo happy to hear what readers think about this story and how I've turned TWD tv version of the Gov into the evil one from the comic books.

So, the more reviews, comments, and ratings ... the faster I write!

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!
