What if it was Andrea who got shot instead of Carl. What if Andrea almost dies when they meet the Greene family. What if Maggie falls for Andrea.

4. How to Save A Life

Previously

Well let's go. The Greene's won't wait for long." Rick says.

They all pile into the cars and head to the Greene farm following Rick as he drives. When they pull into the driveway Sophia runs up to the Grimes' car and when her mom gets out quickly hugs her. Maggie walks outside and toward the group as they gather around mother and daughter.

"Welcome to the Greene's family farm." Maggie says with a smile.

It had been almost six hours since they arrived at the Greene's farm and almost eight since Shane and Otis left for supplies. Rick was getting worried Herschel said that if they don't operate soon Andrea will die. Rick doesn't know what to do so he sits down with the rest of the group for a meeting.

"I need to know who thinks we should do the surgery now or wait for Shane and Otis." Rick says in a calm voice.

"I think we should do it now. I can't lose my sister she's all I have left." Amy replies tears still falling down her face.

"I'm with Amy." Dale says.

"I think we should wait." Glen replies.

"I say we do the surgery now." Lori says and Carl nods along with Sophia and Carol.

"I say we do it now." Daryl says,

"What about you T-dog?" Rick asks.

"I think we should wait." T-dog says.

"Well I think its really up to Amy. So I'll go talk to Herschel." Rick says standing up and leaving the room.

When Rick leaves the room Beth walks in with another tall blonde. Glen loses his breath right away.

"Guys I would like you to meet Samantha mine and Maggie's sister. She is 24 and um she doesn't really talk." Beth says with an arm wrapped around her sister.

"Hello." Everyone says.

Samantha quietly says hi then leaves the room with a limp.

"What happened to her?" Carl asks.

"She used to be in the military and when she got shot they wouldn't let her back in. She used to always talk but after that she just stopped talking. Sometimes she will talk but it's in a whisper." Beth replies.

"Oh.. Is she alright nothing to serious." Carol asks in a motherly nature.

"She is fine. While she was rescuing some of the men on her team she took bullets to her legs and stomach." Beth whispers.

"Oh dear." Carol says as Glen looks like he may cry.

"Boy you gotta toughin up." Daryl says hitting Glen on the back.

Rick then walks back into the room and sits down with a sigh.

"What did Herschel say?" Amy asks.

"He said even with the surgery Andrea might die." Rick replies.

Amy covers her mouth to stifle a sob along with the rest of the girls and Glen. Then they hear a car pull up outside and everyone rushes out there even Samantha and Patricia. Shane steps out of the car.

"Where's Otis?" Patricia asks.

"He saved my life. Said I needed to save Andrea. I stopped and looked back for a second and they had him. I'm so sorry Patricia." Shane lies.

Patricia, Maggie, Beth, Jimmy, and Samantha look down.

Maggie walks inside and sits down in the chair next to Andrea's bed as her dad and everyone else brings the stuff in. Then they start the surgery, getting all of the pieces out of Andrea's stomach and lower chest. Maggie looks on with tears in her eyes even though she doesn't know Andrea she feels a connection with the blonde.

"She should be stable now." Herschel says as he wraps Andrea's waist with gauze.

"Thank you Herschel we should be out of here after she heals up." Rick replies.

As everyone except Maggie leaves the room Maggie grabs Andrea's hand and holds it. As she lays her head down on the pillow and thinks she feels eyes on her. Looking up she sees the hazel/blue eyes of the blonde whose hand she is holding.

"Where am I? Who are you?" Andrea asks.

"You are at my father's farm. My name is Maggie Greene. You were shot but my dad managed to save you." Maggie replies getting lost in Andrea's eyes just as Andrea gets lost in Maggie's eyes.

"Where's the rest of my group? Sophia!" Andrea shouts sitting up to fast. This causes her to cry out in pain.

Everyone rushes into the room and sees Maggie trying to coax Andrea to lay back down.

"Andrea, calm down. Sophia is fine she is here with her mom and the group is here also. I need you to lay back so I can make sure you didn't pull your stitches." Maggie says as she gets Andrea to calm down and lay back.

After checking that Andrea didn't pull her stitches Andrea is slowly sat up with a lot of pillows behind her back. Then Amy brings in the guitar that Andrea asked for. When Andrea starts playing everyone knows the song.

Step one, you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through

Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

Everyone looks at Daryl surprised but he just shrugs it off.

CHORUS:
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
'Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And I pray to God he hears you


CHORUS

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed

He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

CHORUS (x2)

How to save a life
How to save a life

CHORUS (x2)

How to save a life
How to save a life

Everyone smiles and looks at Andrea who is now asleep.

"Well that was fast and looks very uncomfortable." Maggie says.

"That's normal she can fall asleep anywhere." Amy replies.

"Really like where?" Beth asks.

"Well there was this one time when we were on the road before this happened and she fell asleep in the backseat with her head out the window." Amy replies.

"Oh I remember that. We were on our way back to the camp and she was riding with us." Glen says.

"I still remember the time when we ran into the horde and she was on my motorcycle with me and she fell asleep and was still holding onto me tightly." Daryl says.

"We should let her get some rest. Come on guys." Rick says and everyone leaves the room to let Andrea rest.
