And, now back to our story ...


oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Daryl's POV -

We sat in silence for the first part of the drive. It was about another hour until we made it back to the prison, and it would be dark by the time we got there.

Glenn finally spoke up. "So, that was intense. Had a few close calls."

I wiped the sweat off my brow and ran my hand through my hair brushing it back.

"Yeah, a couple."

"The pharmacies were so easy." He paused. "Damn, I really thought we were gonna have a simple run." Glenn laughed nervously. "Whew! Definitely wasn't plannin' on all that."

"Yeah, well … I wasn't plannin' on gettin' all friendly with that professor either."

We both laughed. It felt good to laugh and take my mind off of everything … even if it was only for a second.

"Yeah … you two looked pretty cozy there."

"Haven't had another person on top of me for a while. Didn't think the next time was gonna be a 300 lb dead guy!"

Glenn burst into laughter. "Oh my God … I bet ya didn't…"

The miles kept bringing us closer and closer to the prison, and I noticed that the sun was already starting to set.

"Should only be another half hour or so …"

"Yep …"

Eventually, the sun slipped away and was replaced by an eerie darkness. I was startin' to get real anxious and found myself gettin' lost in my thoughts.

The closer we got, the more and more I started to let my mind drift to thoughts of Beth.
Thoughts of everything I had wanted to say to here last night, and this morning. I started to get upset with myself for being such a damned fool.

I shouldn't have pushed her away the way I did.


I shoulda told her how I felt … when I had the chance.


I hoped that I would return to the prison and that she'd be fine, but I couldn't help fearing the worst. In this world … no one was safe, nothing was for sure anymore. I had run from her and my feelings cause I was scared … scared to be that close to someone, scared of what people would think … scared I might lose her … just like I lost Merle. And, here I was … rushin' back medical supplies and just hopin' that God had some sort of mercy on us … just this once ….
And, that Beth would be okay.

I hadn't prayed in God only knows how long … but I prayed in my heart that she would be okay and that I'd at least get the chance to tell her how I felt, and maybe even get a chance to show her how I felt …if she'd have me.

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

It was night when we rolled up to the gates of the prison. The gates opened and I could see Maggie and Tyrese. We pulled up to the entrance of the prison and jumped out with our bags of supplies in hand.

Maggie ran up and immediately threw herself into Glenn's arms.

"Oh my God, Glenn! I'm so glad you're back … that you're okay."

She kissed Glenn and then started to place dozens of kisses on his face.

"Alright you two. Enough already."

Maggie smiled and walked over to me; wrapping her arms around me and hugged me.

"You too, Daryl. I'm glad you're back safe too."

She paused and I could barely make out her face since it was so dark, but it looked like she
was smilin' a little.

"She was askin' for ya, Daryl."

My heart lit up like a flame.

"She was askin' for ya, Daryl …" Maggie paused. "She's been in and out of consciousness all day … and … she's still havin' a real hard time breathin'."

I could feel the panic rush through my body as I realized she said Beth hadn't been conscious all day and wasn't breathin' well.

"Well, then what the hell are we standin' here for? Let's get this stuff over to Hershel already."
I started to run towards Cell Block A.

Maggie and Glenn followed right behind me; Maggie made her way to my side; giving me and Glenn the run down of what had happened since we left.

"The older couple … Harold and Ester." She paused. "They didn't make it. Died about 3 hours ago."

"Jesus, Maggie! … It's that serious?!"

I started to run faster.

No! I'm not gonna lose her now. Not like this …


We made it to the entrance and then ran through the hallways until we finally made it to the entrance to Cell Block A.

I rapped my fist against the door and the glass.

"Hershel! … Hershel! Goddamnit … open the door!" I yelled out.

Maggie stood there holding onto Glenn.

"Carol's come down with it; she's in there tryin' to help out with Beth, Judy … Mika and Lizzie."

"How's Judy? She alright?"

Beth, Little Asskicker, Carol … this worryin' was drivin' me insane …


Maggie nodded. "Her fever spiked earlier, but Nick made it back to the prison not too long after. Daddy was able to get her fever down and she was able to take some of those medicines he brought back."

"So, she's gonna be okay?"

I exhaled deeply, my head lowered; I just stared at the ground in front of me. I just couldn't believe things had escalated so fast.

"I dunno, Daryl." She paused and started to cry. "I thought that Harold and Ester were gonna make it." Here came the tears. "Daddy got them medicine too … but it didn't work. They died
anyways. So …"

"Shit!"
I pounded on the door again and yelled at the top of my lungs. "Hershel!"

Finally, Hershel came to the door and opened it.

I grabbed the bag from Glenn and walked towards the door.

"The hell,
Hershel?" He stood there blocking my entrance.

"Ya shouldn't expose yourself to this sickness, if ya don't have to."

I shoved the bags towards Hershel, pushing my way past him.

"Ain't no way you're keepin' me out, old man. No way!"

Hershel stayed at the door, making sure no one else came through.

"Maggie, Glenn. You two stay here. I'll give ya an update soon."

"Alright, daddy." Maggie's faint voice then disappeared as the door locked to Block A.

I walked into Block A and saw there were a few more people in there. And, then I saw Carol in one of the cells with Mika and Lizzie.

I ran over to the cell.

"Ya alright, Carol?"

She walked up to me and wrapped her arms around my neck.

"Glad ya made it back in one piece." She coughed a little. "Beth's over there …if ya wanna see her."

"She alright?"

Hershel finally caught up with me and he motioned for us to leave the cell. Hershel obviously didn't want to talk about this in front of the girls.

"Can I talk to you two for a minute … outside."

Carol leaned over and kissed Mika on the forehead.

"Girls, I'll be back in a little while. You two stay here, okay?"

As we walked away from the cell, Hershel continued what he was sayin'.

"No, she's not alright, Daryl. Her fever is still real high. I gave her the anti-virals earlier when Nick got back … even gave her some anti-biotics in case there was a secondary infection."

"So, why's it not workin'?"

Hershel rubbed the back of his neck.

"I'm not sure. Like I said, I think she may have gotten a secondary or bacterial infection. These infections are caused by the primary flu virus symptoms. One begets the other." He paused. "I think that blood she was coughin' up was an infection in her upper respiratory tract; in her lungs."

Coughin' up blood doesn't sound good …this was more serious than I ever could've imagined.

My heart literally ached with the thought of Beth bein' so sick … the thought of possibly losing her … it was just too much.


Hershel paused and wiped the sweat from his brow.

"Were ya able to find everythin' on that list I gave ya?"

I nodded and lifted up the bags to show Hershel. "Yeah, sure did."

"There was a really strong broad spectrum anti-biotic called Procaine-benzylpenicillin on that list; its injectable and slow release … ya found that?"

"Hershel, we got everythin' on the list. If it was on the list, its in one of these bags.

"Alright. Well … she hasn't been awake the last two hours, so I think its time I give that a try. Might do her some good."

He started walking to the cell where Beth was laying down in. We got to the door and I could see her. It's the closest I'd been to her in days. Her eyes were closed and she didn't move at all when we walked in.

Hershel laid the bags down on the ground and started to rummage through them. He first pulled out some other medicine and some sort of inhaler.

"Carol? I want ya to bring this over to Judy. Have Rick give her this Salbutamol inhaler. Make sure she gets several puffs of the medicine. It'll help with that wheezing sound in her chest and help her to breathe a little easier."

"Alright, Hershel. I'll take care of it."

"Thank ya, Carol. I'll be over in just a bit to check on her again."

Carol smiled at me; I know she could tell how worried I was. She was one of the only people that really knew how I had been feelin' about Beth. She knew this had been hard on me, real hard on me.

Then, Hershel looked up at me.

"Daryl? Can ya help me turn her?"

I must've had a questioning look on my face, because he immediately followed up with an explanation.

"It's an injectable. It needs to go deep in the muscle."

"Just help me turn her; ya can leave after if ya want."

What, the hell is he talkin' bout?


I leaned down and carefully helped Hershel turn Beth on her side.

"I'm gonna need ya to hold her jus like this, okay?"

I nodded. "Alright. Whatever ya need."

I kept Beth on her side, while Hershel pulled her pants and underwear down, exposing the top part of her butt.

I wasn't expectin' that …


Hershel must've known what I was thinkin'. He looked at me and smiled.

"It's gotta go deep in the muscle tissue; right in the cheek here." He paused and took the cap off.

"It's gonna hurt like hell, but she's gotta get it."

Hershel pulled the cap off the pen.

"I'm gonna need ya to hold on tight to her in case she moves."

I nodded and got a better grip on her hips and shoulders.

Then he jammed the needle into her … she didn't even flinch.

"I thought ya said it's supposed to hurt?"

Hershel pulled her pants back up, and I slowly laid her back down on her back.

"Thanks." He smiled and wiped his brow and I helped him get back up on his feet.

"Is she gonna be okay?"

"I hope so, Daryl." He paused and I just couldn't help but keep my eyes on her.

Hershel grabbed one of the bags I had brought in.

"Well, I gotta go take a look at Judy and the others … ya mind keepin' an eye on Bethy here for me?"

I nodded yes and immediately sat down next to her.

Hershel put his hand on my shoulder as he walked out. "Thank you, Daryl … for everything."

I had wanted to talk to Beth alone for the last 24 hours, and here I was … alone with her in the cell but unable to talk to her.

I just looked down at her; her eyes closed so peacefully; her blonde locks strewn over her pillow. She looked like an angel … as usual.

I reached over her and tucked some of the blankets around her. I felt her forehead and it felt warm, but it's always hard to tell how hot someone's temperature is with just your hand. So, I leaned over her and pressed my lips onto her forehead. I probably kept them there longer than I should've ... bein' that we hadn't talked yet. But, I could feel her forehead was definitely still hot; her skinned burned against my lips.

There was a bowl of water and some washcloths beside her bed. I made a compress with the cloth and dipped it in the water, pressing the cool compress to her forehead. I wasn't much of a caregiver type; but I would do my best to help make her more comfortable if I could.

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Everyone else was feelin' better thanks to those anti-virals we picked up. After about an hour, I heard footsteps comin' towards the cell. I looked up and there was Carol. She already looked like she was feelin' better.

"Just wanted to let ya know, Judy's already soundin' better. I think she's gonna be just fine."

"That's good. That's real good news, Carol."

I looked up at her as she looked down at Beth.

"She doin' any better?"

"Dunno. She still felt hot just a little while ago."

"Carol leaned down and felt her forehead.

"I dunno, Daryl. I think it may have gone down a little. Feels better than it was before."

"Really?"

She nodded and smiled. "Yeah it does."

She put her hand on my shoulder and sat down next to me.

"I know she's not conscious right now … but ya can still talk to her if ya want."

"What d'ya mean?"

"They say people can still hear ya … even if their unconscious. They say it can help people pull through; help their will to survive."

I looked down at Beth. She was so helpless right now. And, I knew I would do anythin' to help her get better … anythin'.

I could feel tears welling up in my eyes. I tried my best to hold em back.

"Talk to her, Daryl."

A tear slipped down my cheek, which I quickly wiped away. I didn't look to Carol to see if she caught it. She didn't say nothin' bout it, but I'm sure she did. She always did …

"Go on, now!" Carol insisted before she stood and left; leaving me and Beth alone in the cell together.

"Well … guess its jus me and you now …"

I reached down and grabbed her hand and placed it between the two of mine.

"So, Carol's got this crazy idea … that maybe you can hear me or somethin'." I paused and gently caressed her hand. "Ya know? You really scared the shit outta me today, Beth. Been worried like all hell bout ya."

She continued to lay there silently. I looked up at the ceiling of the cell that was only dimly lit by the one lantern Hershel had left in the cell with us.

"There's so much I wanna say to ya … jus don't know really how to say it." I paused and shook my head. "Damn! Here ya are and your unconscious and I still can't get the words out."

I exhaled and tried to relax. I figured this was a good trial run; I could tell her everythin' I'd been holdin' in.

"Ya see … I'm sorry. I'm sorry for actin' like such a damned fool. I shouldn't have said those things to ya. I shouldn't have pushed ya away. I was so wrong, and I hope ya can forgive me Beth."

I leaned in closer to her and brushed some of the hair that was near her face.

"I was scared is all … and, I jus didn't know how to tell you. So, I jus pushed ya away, and it was wrong of me to do."

I looked at her beautiful face and smiled.

You'd never know she was sick by just lookin' at her.

"Ya see … you were right. I did feel somthin' the other night … and I still do."

I couldn't help the tears that started; I tried but they just kept comin'.

"And, now you're sick and ya can't even hear me say it, but I'm gonna say it anyways …" I paused and leaned down close to her ear. "Ya see … I think … I think I'm in love you, Beth."

I closed my eyes tight and imagined her lookin' at me like she looked at me the other night; the night when we kissed. "I … I know I'm in love with you."

A whimper escaped me. "I jus didn't know how to tell ya til now."

How could I be so blind? I loved this woman, and she had tried to get me to see it; see how good we were together. And, all I did was hurt her. I was so fuckin' mad at myself for hurtin' the way I did. I wasn't raised to show emotions like that, and they just seem to come so easy for her. I wished things had been different; I wished I could take it back. And, when she woke up, I'd tell her how sorry I was.

I'll never let her feel like that again, I swear it.


And, tell her I don't just want her … I need her. I didn't realize it until all this shit happened, but I needed her. She's the light to my darkness, and the sweetness to offset my sometimes bitter or sour taste. And, bein' with this group has shown me that I can be a good man. But, when I'm with her … I wanna make sure that that I'm a better man … for her. Cause she deserved that from me.

I kissed her on the cheek. "Now … I jus need ya to wake up, so I can tell ya." I leaned over and gently placed a kiss on her lips and found myself wrapping my arms around her, putting my head on her chest and holding on to her. "Wake up, Beth! Please … wake up!"

I tilted my head up to look her. I cupped her face with my hand and gently rubbed her cheek with my thumb; tryin' anythin' to get her to respond to me. "Beth … did ya hear me? I need ya to wake up for me. Please, darlin' … wake up."

I pulled myself up close to her face.

She was so close yet so far away.


I could feel the empty dull ache inside the core of me, as I looked down at her. I needed her to wake up; I needed to be able to hold her again, touch her again … and kiss her again. I looked down at her lips, and rubbed the edge of my thumb over them. I leaned over and kissed her gently.

I looked at her and continued to gently caress her face.

"Come on, Beth. It's me. It's Daryl. Please wake up." I let out a sob and tried to hold back all the tears that were tryin' to escape. "Damnit, woman. Wake up!" I could feel the hot liquid run down my cheeks. "I can't lose anyone else … I can't lose you, Beth, okay? So, ya gotta wake up for me …!"

There was no response. She wasn't movin'. I felt so helpless, so desperate. I'd never felt so much longing before in my whole life; my heart literally ached for her.
My head dropped and fell into my hands as I cried beside her bedside. She continued to lay there; not moving, almost lifeless. It was just too much.

I can't lose anyone else. Not, again. Especially, not her …


With all my cryin', I hadn't heard his footsteps as they approached the cell; not until they were almost to the doorway. I quickly sat up, when I realized someone was there.

I wonder if anyone heard all of that.


"Ya alright, Daryl?"

Hershel had come back. I quickly wiped the tears from my face before turnin' to look at him.

I just nodded yes.

I didn't know what to say to him; he'd just caught me cryin' and holdin' on to his daughter. I really didn't know what his response was gonna be.

He walked in and leaned over and felt Beth's forehead. Her face had beaded up with sweat. He used a washcloth to wipe it off her face.

"Looks like her fever broke." He motioned for me to feel her head, and sure enough … it felt cooler.

"I think she's gonna be just fine. With her fever goin' down, she should be wakin' up anytime now."

"Should I go then?"

"Nah … you stick around. I'm sure she'd like to see ya when she wakes up."

It made me feel real good that Hershel was alright with me stayin'. Cause I probably wouldn't have left even if he had wanted me to.

"Alright. I'll jus stay with her til she wakes up."

"Stay with her as long as ya like. When she wakes up, I'm sure she'd like some company."

I bit my bottom lip and nodded. "Alright. Then I'll jus stay with her tonight." I looked up at Hershel.
"If that's alright with you?"

He smiled. "Yeah … it's alright with me." He laughed a little. ""You're a good man, Daryl. Sure am glad you were around to help."

"Thanks Hershel. Jus doin' what I can."

"No, you do a lot more than you take credit for." He paused. "We owe you our lives … every last one of us."

It was a nice compliment; but I was never any good at taken compliments.

"And, I'm sure glad you were here for my little Bethy here. I'm not sure she would've have made it without ya."

"Sure she would …she's a fighter."

"I know she is, but it's nice to know she's got someone like you lookin' after her. You're like her guardian angel, Daryl."

"Me? An angel?" I laughed.

"Yeah! You are!"

"Nahh … I ain't no angel."

He smiled. "Well, you were certainly Beth's today."

"Thanks, ole man. I'd have done it for any one of ya."

"But, ya didn't do it for just any of us … ya did it for Beth." He paused. "Nick told me … ya made sure to go to the college to get the rest of the supplies. Ya made sure to get everythin' … Beth might need." He smiled. "Ya risked your life for her, son … and I'm certainly grateful."

I looked back down at Beth.

"Well, I guess … I do just about anythin' for her."

"I know ya would, son. I know ya would …"

He patted me on the shoulder and walked back outta the cell.

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Hours passed by and I just sat; keepin' watch.

Finally, I could see her eyes movin' behind her lids. Her lips parted and she started to breathe a little deeper. She seemed to be comin' to.

I rubbed my palm along her forehead; coaxing her to wake up.

"Beth? Can ya hear me?"

Her voice was nothin' more than a whisper.

"Daryl? … Daryl?"

"I'm here. I'm right here, Beth. I'm not ever gonna leave your side."

Finally, her eyes opened; blinking to adjust to the little light bit of light in the room.

"Hi." She smiled.

"Hi …" My smile was ear to ear; so big I got shy for a moment and couldn't help but look away.

I was so happy; my heart felt like it was going to explode …


I had been so desperate for her to wake up; to feel better, and now there she was lookin' at me and smilin' … I couldn't stop the tears from wellin' up in my eyes, as I continued to talk with her.

"I … I was so worried, Beth …" I paused and held on tight to her hand. "So, worried you … hell, I can't even say it …"

I looked deep into her eyes, and she squeezed my hand.

"I don't know what I woulda done if I'd lost you …"

I could barely get the words outta my mouth; I was so choked up.

"Daryl …" She said in a whisper. "But, I'm here … I'm okay."

"It's not jus that, Beth." I looked down at her hand and caressed it. "I …I'm sorry bout everythin' I said. Ya know? Before …"

"It's okay …" She tried to reassure me.

"It's not … I pushed ya away, and I've spent the last couple of hours wantin' to tell ya …"

"Tell me what?"

"That I was wrong to do that to ya … And, I'm never gonna do that to ya again."

I could feel the sadness creep up from within me; feelin' all those feelings … feeling like I might lose her … I might lose the woman I loved … and, I never even told her.

"It's okay, Daryl. Please …"

"No, it ain't okay … cause … I …" My stomach felt sick and I felt light headed, but I had to tell her already. If I didn't tell her, I felt like I would just die.

"What's wrong, Daryl?"

I laughed. She was so sweet. Here she was lyin' in bed sick, worryin' bout me. I could feel the nervousness start to slip away and I just looked deep into her eyes.

"Beth, I … well, I …" I paused tryin' to get the words right. "I love ya, Beth."

Her eyes widened and she smiled back at me.

I continued. "I mean … I'm in love with you."

It felt like a weight had been lifted from me …


"I'm in love with you. And, after all this … I realized … I don't wanna spend another day tryin' to deny it or tryin' to hide it from you." I looked at her. "And, I know I messed up real bad and I don't know if it's too late, but I had to tell ya. I need ya to know how I feel."

Beth's eyes filled with tears and she smiled and started to get choked up.

"Daryl!"

She reached up to grab a hold of my arm; she caressed it as she spoke and looked deeply into my eyes.

"Daryl … I'm in love you too … I'm so in love you." She started to cry.

"Don't cry, Beth."

I reached over and wiped the few tears that had made their way to her cheeks.

"I wanna cry … they're tears of joy. I'm happy, Daryl." She laughed. "So happy."

I reached down and cupped her face with my hand, and caressed her cheek with my thumb.

"You're happy?"

"I am."

"So, you're not mad at me?"

She smiled. "I know ya didn't mean it, Daryl." She looked up sweetly at me. "And, ya saved my life; you're my hero … how could I ever me mad at you?"

I jokingly responded. "Your hero, huh?" I laughed. "I like that …"

"You are! You're my hero … and, I love you … God! It feels so good to say that finally. Ya don't
know how badly I wanted to tell ya how I felt."

I smiled. "I know exactly how ya feel …" I paused and could feel those damn tears again. "I thought I was gonna lose ya … all I wanted was for ya to get better … so, I could tell ya."

She reached her arms out for me.

"Come here …"

I leaned over and she brought my face closer to hers; tears slipped down her cheeks.

"Well, ya told me … now what the hell are we gonna do?" She laughed.

"What I've been waitin' do to for the last couple of days."

Sick or not sick … I didn't give a damn. I couldn't take another second without feelin' her lips on mine.


I leaned in and kissed her softy as she wrapped her arms around my necks and ran her fingers gently through my hair. I felt a yearning in my entire body, it was like an ache; somethin' I'd never felt before. I needed to be close to her, as close as possible. I kissed her deeper; feelin' our lips and tongues collide and exchanging hurried breaths; I lost myself in her arms; in her kiss.
She then slid her hands to my back bringing me even closer to her, and my hands found their way to her face, gently cupping both of her cheeks.

I slowly pulled away.

"I love you … and, I wanna be with you … I wanna give this shot." I paused. "That okay with you?"

She smiled and nodded excitedly. "Of course, it's okay with me! It's more than okay with me …!"

I found my tone get a little more serious and thoughtful. "I want ya to be my girl, Beth. Only mine."

She sweetly replied. "Then, I'm yours, Daryl Dixon." She smiled and then bit her bottom lip.
"And, you're mine."

"Sounds bout right." I paused and I just looked at my beautiful girl. "God, you're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen …"

She smiled and then whispered. "Lay with me?"

I wasn't sure if Hershel was comin' back or if anyone happened to see us. In this moment, I really just didn't care.

And, I wanted be next to her too … The hell with it!


"Sure." I smiled mischievously. "Scoot on over …"

I climbed over her and found a spot next to her on the cot and then reached my arm underneath her neck and head. She pulled herself in next to me; wrapping her arm around my chest. I pulled her in close to me; putting my arm around her; we then let our bodies intertwine with each other. There was a blissful buzz throughout my entire body; I couldn't tell where my body stopped and hers began. She nuzzled her head into my chest and I closed my eyes and rested my face near the top of her head; I could smell the sweet scent of vanilla and honey in her hair.

Finally, we found peace in finally telling each other the obvious … that we we're in love. And, I promised myself I'd never deny her that truth again.

It didn't take very long after that before I started to fall asleep; taking a much needed rest with the woman I loved in my arms …

END CHAPTER THIRTEEN

Notes

Ahh ... so it's official ... they're in love :))!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to make him come face to face with it; he needed to face the possibility of losing her, which forced him to get over any hang ups he still had.

As Norman Reedus has said in interviews, if Daryl were to have a relationship, he would be a "hard nut to crack." It would take Daryl a long time to trust and get to a place where he was ready for a relationship of any kind with a woman. So, I had to play it slow and complicated with him ... forcing him to make decisions and putting him in a situation where he had to tell Beth how he felt ;) He's also said that "Once Daryl falls in love with a woman, he's going to love her forever." Ahhh ... So, him and Bethy are in it for the long run ;)

Every chapter they take one more step closer to each other, and the next couple of chapters they will be making bigger and bigger steps!

That being said ... I'VE GOT A QUESTION TO ASK ALL OF MY READERS ... I NEED YOUR OPINION :))

They've kissed, they've admitted they are in love with each other ... how long do you think it should take before they take it to the next level? I don't want it to take too long, but I figured I'd poll you all to see how long you think the couple should wait ...

* As soon as possible
* 1 week
* 2 weeks
* 1 month

Keep in mind, they are in love; she's technically a horny teenager, and it's been a while since Daryl's gotten any ... I imagine it's going to be very hard for them to keep their hands off each other. However, I wanna get your input on the time frame ;)

Also, definitely let me know what you think; like it, love it, hate it ... let me know your thoughts. If you've got a moment, please leave me a note or comment on your way out ... I'd love to hear from you all :-D

** I've got Chapter Fourteen half way done ... So, as soon as this chapter gets 10 reviews - I'll get the next chapter up within 24 hours! I know, I know ... I'm a sucker for comments and reviews. But, every time I see a new comment ... it literally puts a smile on my face (swear). Plus, they keep me motivated and inspired to keep working on the story, so I'm hoping to hear from all of you out there reading this story ... l love you all ;-)

Here's a Teaser Chapter Fourteen:
Daryl and Beth get woken up by a surprise visitor. Daryl decides that he doesn't want to leave Beth's side until she is feeling better, so there are more intimate moments and feels in this chapter. While the rest of the group tries to get back on their feet after this wave of illness, Daryl and Beth discuss when and how they are going to tell everyone about their relationship ...

Looking forward to hearing from you!

xoxo,
Dahlia

OMG... this has to be one of the very best TWD fanfics I have ever read. I love Beth and Daryl so much and I so want to see where this story goes! I really hope that you are inspired to continue this... and soon. I will keep my fingers crossed for this. You are a wonderfully talented writer! I really do hope that all is well in your life these days...

Oh my goodness,
Even though I started reading this yesterday. I could NOT stop. I LOVE THIS! You are so great at writing. I love Beth and Daryl together. I thought about it since like the beginning of the third season. I started to read another story about Bethyl and it just didn' t feel like them. Your 'lemony' scenes are so detailed and in the moment everything (at least what I think itm) it is just so great. Thank you so much for putting it in writing. When I think of how much I miss the oppurtinty.... spelled that wrong....of Beth and Daryl getting together I am going to read this again. Please keep going Please. It is too good to stop. I know with her gone it seems....impossible. But I know you can do it... they changed the story from the comic book in the shows and they are still good. I am sorry I wrote such a long and creepy comment but..... it was too amazing to not.
Thank You
