I was pissed to be woken up in the middle of the night. I was having a dream about my life before the world went to shit. I was with my boyfriend at that time, Josh, and our dog and we were happy as fuck. I missed that life until I looked up at the person who woke me up; Daryl. I smiled at the sight of him. I barely listened to what he said. I was too bust thinking about how happy I was to have him.
"Maddie! C'mon, get up!" he shouted. "There are walkers in the prison yard!" My eyes went wide. Walkers? IN THE PRISON YARD?!
I got out of bed and dressed and fast as I could, before grabbing my gun and my gun and knife and following Daryl outside to the prison yard. There were walkers all over the place, and everyone - except Hershel, Beth and Judith of course - were out, killing the walkers. I ran around a killed walkers. There were just so many, and many more outside, all trying to get inside as well.
It was so scary. All those walkers. Of course I had killed walkers before, but it wasn't like I enjoyed doing it. I was looking around, trying to see if I could see any walkers near me. There weren't any near me, but one was getting close to Luke. It was so close, I wasn't sure if I could make it to him before it got him, but I tried. I ran as quickly as my legs would let me, screaming as it grabbed his shoulder. "That's it," I thought, "that's the end of Luke Hemmings life." Luke was screaming as the edge of the walkers rotten teach touched his shoulder. But before they sank into his shoulder, Maddie stabbed a knife into the walkers head and pulled it away from Luke and onto the ground, and without saying a word she ran off to kill more walkers. I ran up to Luke who clearly was in shock after what had happened.
"You're okay, mate?" I asked him.
"Uh, yeah, sure," he said quickly as he ran off as well.
About half an hour later all the walkers were dead. I sat down and let out a sigh. The prison yard was a mess. There were hundreds of bodies. I decided that I would volunteer to help move all of the dead walkers out of the court yard and burn them. But before I could even finish that thought, I felt something grab my wrist, and before I could react to it, a walker sank its teeth into my wrist. I was too in shock to do anything, and just screamed as the walker tore the flesh and skin off of my wrist. Soon an arrow was in its head and it let go of my wrist. Carol, Calum, Daryl and Mason all came to me. Carol and Calum sat down next to me.
"We'll have to cut off his hand," Carol said. Calum and I both looked at her like she was crazy. "It's the only way he'll survive this bite! Otherwise the infection will spread and he'll die." I saw Calum nod, and I felt a belt being tightned around my arm, and seconds later a knife made contact with my wrist, just above the bite. I screamed in horror. The pain was unbearable, worse than one that when the walker bit me, and I quickly passed out.
I woke up later in Calums and my cell. Yes, RIck let us have cells. We'd been in the prison for a month and we got to move into the cells with the others after 10 days, which Merle seemed pretty pissed about, because he'd been there for so long and still didn't have a cell.
"You're awake!" I heard Carols soft voice say. She was sitting next to my bed, reading a book. "How are you doing?"
"I'm fine," I said, looking at my arm. "Guess I'm done with drumming."
Carol chuckled. "So you were the drummer?" she said. I nodded. "Were you good at it?"
"I guess. Otherwise I don't see why all those people came to see us," I told her.
"Well, you did tour with One Direction. That's a pretty big deal."
"Yeah. They were great guys. I miss them."
"My daughter loved them. I never really got why."
"What's your daughter's name?"
Carol's face went sad. "Her name was Sophia."
"Oh. What happened?" I asked her. She told me about what happened at Hershels farm and how Daryl and gone out to look for her and got himself shot in the process. She looked so happy when she was talking about Daryl. "So, you like Daryl?"
She nodded. "He was there for me when no one else were."
"But what about him and Maddie?"
"It's wrong. She's so young! He could be her father!"
"But they're happy. Doesn't that mean anything to you? I've never seen Maddie this happy. Not even with Luke." Shit. I fucked up.
"What do you mean?" she asked.
"Nothing. Nothing at all," I said. She kept asking me. She wouldn't stop. Luckily Maddie walked in.
"Hey Ash! Just wanted to see-" She saw Carol sitting by my bed and frowned. "Oh, hi Carol." She rolled her eyes at Carol. "Anyway, I just wanted to see if you were awake and you are so-"
"Hey, can I talk to you alone for a moment?" She furrowed her eyebrows. "About the thing."
"What thing?" both Maddie and Carol said.
"Michael, uh, birthday," I said, fully aware that Michael's birthday wasn't for another 3 months. Luckily Carol didn't know that. Carol walked out and Maddie came and sat on the bed.
"Michael's birthday is in November, Ash. It's August," Maddie said quietly.
"Ugh, I know, I just needed to get Carol out of here," I mumbled. "I kinda let it slip that you and Luke-"
"Wait what?" Maddie said. "You told Carol that Luke and I had a thing?" I nodded. "Ashton Fletcher Irwin, you are one dead man!"
"I didn't mean to!"
"Why did you tell her, anyway?"
"She was telling me about how Daryl went looking for her daughter back then and that she wants to frickle frackle with him-"
"She said frickle frackle?"
"Okay, no, she just said that she likes him, but anyway, I told her that I've never seen you be as happy as you are with Daryl." Maddie smiled.
"I forgive you."
"Because you told her that I've never been happier. And I also have a feeling that she's going to confront Daryl and tell him about Luke and I and Daryl already knows, so no one can get hurt, maybe except her." I chuckled at her.
She sure was one weird girl.
A/N - So this is the 'new' version of this chapter. I wrote another one, but before I finished it the wi-fi crashed and I lost everything, so I had to re-write it all.
