Waking up at the prison for the first time was a great feeling. Actually getting a decent night's sleep for once was something we all really appreciated. It was a bit scary at first though. I was so tired the night before that when I woke up, I couldn't really remember how we ended up there in the first place, but I quickly regained my memory and smiled to myself. We were safe.
I got up from the mattress that I shared with Luke and ran my hand through my thin, blonde hair. My eyes went wide as I saw a young girl sitting on a chair, holding a baby. I was standing there in nothing but my underwear and a tank top. She smiled when she saw me, and giggled as I fumbled around to find a pair of black, skinny jeans to put on. Even after the world went to shit, we were all still most comfortable in those black, skinny jeans. As I found a pair, I put them on and went to sit on the chair.
"Mornin'" she said sweetly, flashing a smile.
"Good morning," I said awkwadly. That was the first time I had actually talked to a girl after the world went to shit, and to make it even more awkward I couldn't help but thinking that she was really beautiful.
"You're one of the guys Daryl and Mason brought home yesterday, right?" she asked me quietly, probaly not wanting that guy, Merle, to wake up. He was quite scary. And he had that blade-hand-thing.
"Y-Yes. I'm Michael. The other guys and I used to be friends with Maddie and her siblings when we all still lived in Australia a few years back," I answered, also trying to keep my voice low. I really didn't want to know what Merle did to people who woke him up - even if it was an accident.
"I heard Daryl and Maddie talk about you yesterday, so, yeah, I know you used to know each other," she said. Oh God. I wondered how much of that conversation she'd heard. And how much Maddie had told Daryl. "Anyway, I'm Beth."
"So, how did you end up here?" I asked her, getting more and more comfortable around her.
"Well, I used to live on a farm with my family and a few others, mainly friends of the family. But most of them turned. We were only 6 when the group found us. We all lived together for some time until a herd of walkers attacked us and we had to get away from the farm. Only the ones we are now and a few others made it out alive. But I'm thankful to have my dad and sister." Her face dropped. She lost many people. She'd probably see them turn. I had only seen my mom turn. It was awful. But besides that, the toughest thing was to kill our fans. Like, it's not excatly easy to kill a girl wearing a 5sos t-shirt.
"I'm sorry. I can't imagine losing that many people."
"Haven't you lost anyone?"
I let out a sigh. "I.. I saw my mom turn before I even knew about the whole apocalypse-thing. The same day I did see someone turn and bite people, but I didn't excatly know those people." For a moment I replayed that day in my head. My mom turning, the concert with those people turning and biting others. It's something I have nightmares about at times.
I heard the sound of a baby's soft cries fill the room, making me snap out of trance. "Oh my God," Beth excaimed. I looked at her, to see that her shoulder was covered in baby vomit. "Can you please hold her for a minute while I change?" she asked, walking around the table and handling the baby to me. My eyes were wide as I took her from Beth. She quickly got went to her cell, leaving me with the little girl. I heard someone chuckle behind me and I turned around, seeing Calum smiling at me.
"Even in this shitty world you manage to get the girls," he mumbled as he got dressed.
"Shut up, Hood," I muttered back. Calum came up to me and sat down on the chair next to mine. Just then, Beth came back, wearing a white, clean shirt that looked really good on her. She took the baby from me and sat down again.
"Who's baby is that even?" I asked Beth.
"It's Rick's," she quickly said. "Or, we believe it is." Calum and I both looked at her, confused. She lowered her voice and leaned closer to us. "You see, Rick's wife, Lori, and his best friend, Shane, had an affair, because they thought Rick was dead-"
"Then is wasn't an affair, right? If they thought he was dead?" Calum asked quietly, interrupting Beth.
"Shut up, Calum!" I snapped, hitting his arm, making Calum roll his eyes at me.
Beth smiled at us before continuing; "Anyway, when they found Rick, Lori stopped sleeping with Shane. Either could be the father."
"Yeah, I already don't like this Lori person," I said.
"She's dead," Beth said. Awkward.
Soon everyone were up and Rick introduced us to the rest of the group. All eyes were on us as we told all of them our names.
"Where are you guys from? Your accents are weird," the boy with brown hair, who was introduced as Rick's son, Carl, asked.
"Carl!" Rick said loudly.
"It's okay," Ashton said. "We're from Sydney, Australia, but we were on tour here in America when all those dead people came back to life and began to, you know.. eat other people."
"On tour?" Beth's sister, Maggie asked.
"We have a ba- We used to have a band," Luke said, his face dropping. "We were touring with One Direction. It was awesome."
"Wait..." the chinese-looking guy, Glenn, said. There was something about him that made me think I'd seen him before. "You toured with One Direction?" We all nodded. "Oh, so that's why you're so familiar!" he exclaimed happily.
"Okay, someone's a little too excited about One Direction," Glenn's girlfriend, Maggie, said, laughing at Glenn.
"No, it's just, I used to be a pizza delivery boy before all this! I remeber delivering, like, 10 pizza's to One Directions support act, 5 Seconds Of Summer, right?"
"OMG YES!" I shouted. "I KNEW I'D SEEN YOU BEFORE!" Everyone seemed shocked at my sudden exclamation. After introducing ourself to everyone Glenn and I bonded over pizza. He was my first real friend at the prison.
A/N - Idk if the boys were in Atlanta on the WWA tour, but let's just pretend they were.
