Life I Left Behind


Charlie Asher has stayed true to her small town roots, despite her new big city life. All that changes though with the onset of the "epidemic"...aka the zombie apocalypse. She's forced to deal with loss, loneliness, and the grueling challenge for survival every single day. She doesn't have much left to remember her old life besides an old, dinged up i-pod that doesn't even work, and of course her memories. Until one day, she comes face to face with an important piece of her past. Her long lost childhood friend, Daryl Dixon. After almost ten years of zero contact, preceded by a bitter fallout, how will these two handle their unexpected reunion?


Charlie Asher

Charlie Asher

Charlotte Asher was born in a small, southern town just outside Atlanta, Georgia. She's twenty-eight years old, just shy of twenty-nine but is sincerely hoping no one remembers. Something about twenty-nine being just shy of thirty scares her. Anyways, she went to school to become a high school teacher and has spent the last few years teaching in Atlanta. When the outbreak started, she was living in an alright apartment with her twenty year old brother, Gabe. She's independent, honest, and very sincere. She likes being able to take care of herself, and is very, very stubborn about it. Back in her childhood, she lived next door to none other than Daryl Dixon. The two were best friends, inseparable, until Charlie was eighteen years old. Until now, they haven't seen or heard from each other since.

Daryl Dixon

Daryl Dixon

I think we all know Daryl Dixon...our favorite hunter! For the sake of my story, Daryl is going to be two years older than Charlie, making him thirty-years old. They grew up in the same small town. Daryl comes from a broken family. He never had much of a relationship with either of his parents, and relied a lot on himself to get through life.

Gabe Asher

Gabe Asher

Charlie's younger brother.

Merle Dixon's love interest. She saved his life after the Atlanta rooftop incident. Enough said.

Daryl's older, rough around the edges brother.



Wow! Thank you all a ton! Your comments made me grin like an idiot. It's so awesome to hear that people love Darlie as much as I do...and I also love hearing that my writing is 'compelling' and 'amazing'....these are compliments I never in a million years expected to get when I started this story just as something to do for fun. I take them all to heart and appreciate them more than you know.

I'm in love with this story! Charlie and Daryl are perfect for each other! If you have the time, would you mind checking out my story? ;)

love this story so much please update soon, so sad about Merle's girl :(

I have to say, I am in love with your story. I remember stumbling upon it when you only had 50 chapters (technically 51 with an author's note), and I binge read it. I remember falling in love with Daryl and Charlie as a couple. They are believable and realistic. You captured Daryl's rough gruffness perfectly. When I get left with that cliff hanger though, my heart broke! I was so scared for Charlie! You are an amazing and compelling writer. Please keep the story coming!
