Maggie's Nightmare

Maggie's Nightmare: Chapter Three

Governor's POV – present day

I watched Maggie as she walked back up into the prison, beyond the fields … I watched until she disappeared back behind the walls of the prison. I wanted to make sure she got back in safe; I even smiled while watching her waddle as she tried to walk. Something stirred in me that I hadn't felt for a long time – hope. This world had gone to shit, and when I lost my wife and then Penny – life just didn't make sense anymore; it hadn't for a long time. But, the thought of new life; the thought of what once was … well, it made me feel like a human again. Yeah, human … that would be the best word to describe it. I couldn't help but let another smile crack as I bowed my head and waved my men back.

"Alright boys, let's head on home. Got enough intel for today."

Everyone got back into their trucks and cars and drove off, leaving me and James behind.

"Can you drive, James?" I tossed him the keys; I needed some time to think.

"Yeah, sure can, boss." James eagerly jumped in the driver's seat and I sat down.
As we drove back to the base, I tried to remember Maggie and the night I spent with her. I closed my eyes and thought back … I could still remember the smell of her hair and how soft her skin felt underneath my rough hands. I remembered how brave she was; although I know she must have been scared. She truly was a rarity these days - my rare bird. So, much had been lost in this world, but life would go on it appears … even for me.

Maggie's POV – her memory of when she told Glenn about what really happened at Woodbury

Maggie sobbed with her head resting on Glenn's shoulder. Glenn wrapped his arms around her to soothe her. He had known she had been terrorized, and he had prayed that she was telling the truth when she told him that the Governor hadn't raped her. But, in the back of his mind, he always knew she was more upset than she was leading on. She wouldn't even let him touch her for quite a while after the incident.

"Oh, Glenn … I'm so sorry, I should've told you." I could barely speak, I was crying so hard at this point.

I had wanted to keep this from him, but there was no escaping the awful truth now. I had been raped. I was now pregnant, and the Governor was the father of his child. Words cannot really do justice to the shame and guilt I felt, and I didn't even know where to start.
"It's okay, Maggie. I'm here for you. You don't have to tell me everything if you don't want to. But … I want you tell me the truth … Did he rape you?"

Glenn's eyes were glossy and red; filled with tears … tears and desperation. I could see that he was not mad at me for not telling him, he was just so incredibly worried about me. He wanted to be there for me, like always. I couldn't keep any more secrets from him. Not now; not with the reality of the situation. So, I decided I would tell him everything. I had tried so hard to pretend it didn't happen. I had become so good at the illusion, that I actually believed it myself. I had known the timing was a bit off, but I had deluded myself into thinking that the baby was Glenn's. But, I think deep down I always knew it wasn't, I just couldn't face it. But, I've got to face the truth. So, I just started at the beginning.

"When we were separated, I could hear you being beaten in the room next to me." Glenn closed his eyes for a moment; I guessed he was remembering the beating Merle had given him.
"It was all I could do not to just scream out and tell him everything he wanted to know. It was so terrible to hear what was happening to you … I just wanted to just make it all stop, but …" I explained as I reached over and held his hand.

"But, we agreed not to put the others in danger. So, I kept my mouth shut. I just tried to think of everyone at the prison that we'd be putting in danger … my father, Beth, and everyone else."
I continued, "And, at first … he was so calm, almost friendly. He tried to explain that he wasn't going to hurt anyone. That he didn't want to hurt any of us. It was all so innocent. He just wanted this simple piece of information, the location of the prison, and everything would be okay. He would bring everyone back to Woodbury. That everyone here would all be safe. That we would be safe!"

Glenn nodded, "Yeah, he told me the same thing right before Merle beat the shit out of me."
I was starting to really sweat now. Nerves, I guessed. So, I wiped some of the sweat back from my brow, and ran my hand back through my hair. "Yeah, well … after hearing you getting beaten … I knew he was lying to me …

… Everyone was going to be safe, what a crock of shit! And, if he was lying about not wanting to hurt us! He was definitely lying about not wanting to hurt anyone here at the prison!"

I was starting to become really agitated, so I took a deep breath and continued. "I knew that if I told him, he might just kill us right then and there …

… So, I just sat there in silence, you know? Hoping that he would just leave us alone once he realized we weren't going to talk. And, maybe if you and I kept our mouth shut, if we held out … it just might force them to let us go."

"I mean, if we didn't talk and Merle really just wanted to see his brother again, then they would have to let us go, right? I just kept thinking to myself, just let us go, please just let us go … then we can just drive back to the prison, get Daryl and just straighten this whole thing out with Merle."

As I was talking to Glenn, I thought back to that moment. That moment right before everything went really south. As I sat there in silence, starring back at The Governor …I had felt hopeful. But, I had been so wrong, and so unaware of what a true monster I was in the room with. The Governor wasn't interested in Daryl, he wanted to break me, he wanted to break Glenn, and he wanted to locate the prison and break everyone that I loved. I knew I had to be strong for Glenn and for everyone else. I couldn't let The Governor break me … no matter what.

I continued; finally getting to the part of the story that I knew Glenn would be most disturbed by. "Then, he told me to take my top off." Glenn exhaled deeply and lowered his head down.

"And, I told him no; that I wasn't going to do that. And, then he told me to take my top off or he was going to cut off your hand and bring it back to me." I paused. "He said it so calmly … he was so cold, you know?

… And, I knew he would do it. He would hurt you like that. So, I did what he asked."

Up until now, I had been able to keep my composure when explaining everything to Glenn. I had been trying to fight back the tears, but I just couldn't keep it in anymore. Maybe it's all these hormones; I don't know. But, couldn't help it; tears just stared to well up in my eyes and began to slowly overflow down my face.

"So, I took my shirt off and threw it on the floor. And, I just stood there. And, then he told me to take it all off." The memories began to flood back, and I started to get really nauseous. This had been the first time I had spoken about this and it was all becoming very overwhelming. I just couldn't take sitting by Glenn anymore. I couldn't be that close and tell him what happened next. So, I quickly stood up, facing the wall of the cell … away from Glenn.

"Maggie, please look at me." So, I turned around and faced him. He looked up at me from the small prison cot and reached for my hand. "Maggie, it's okay. You can tell me."

I took a deep breath. "You know, at first … I just thought he was trying to scare me." I laughed nervously. "But, as I took my bra off; he stood up …" I paused.

"And, then he … he began to unbuckle his pants." I couldn't help but shudder at the thought of it.
Then, I closed my eyes as I explained, "That sound … that sound is like … burned into my brain." That sound god awful clanging of his belt buckle. It made me sick to my stomach then, and was causing me to get really nauseous now retelling it. I tried to compose myself, and fought back the food that was trying to make its way back up from my stomach.

"He walked over to me … stood behind me, and then he pushed my head down onto the table in front of him." I could see Glenn's eyes widen and brows furrow with concern.

"I could hear him, you know? Unzip his pants … and … I just kept telling myself that this information … the information about where the rest of our group was … might really be the only thing keeping the two of us alive right now. We might be as good as dead if he got what he was looking for. So, I just told him to do what he was going to do … and, then I told him to go to hell."
I smiled a little; remembering my defiance. I had known I couldn't betray Glenn and the rest of the group by revealing the location of the prison. Not even if it meant that something really bad was going to happen to me. There were just too many people's lives at stake.

I could tell Glenn was getting more and more uncomfortable. When Glenn is upset, he fidgets a lot. And, he was starting to get real antsy. "I can tell this is making you uncomfortable, Glenn, maybe I should stop."

Glenn looked deep into my eyes, "I mean, yeah, it's uncomfortable for me to hear. But, I'm more concerned about you. This happened to you … Please, don't worry about me right now, okay?"
I could tell he just wanted to help. And, although he was getting upset, he really wanted to focus on making me feel better and dealing with this finally. He caressed my face. "I love you, Maggie. If you can, please tell me what happened next."

I looked deep into Glenn's eyes, and tried to think of what I was going to say next. What is the best way to tell your husband all the details of your rape? What details should I tell him? Is there anything that maybe he just doesn't need to hear? I took a few deep breaths and continued my story.

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!
