On the drive there, Katie glanced at Jimmy as the fever was taking over putting him in-between both worlds.
“You won’t find any answers.” Katie replied turning another page of her book and looking up at Shane through her reading glasses.
“We might.” He replied watching his sister with interest. “You never know.”
“Believe me Shane I know this world we live in this is the new society we live in this is our history.” She said turning another page. “We can’t escape this we either die will we live or live than we die.”
“What happened? Back in England with your Uncle.” Shane asked. “That made you cry.”
Putting her book down she sighed and watched him. “I don’t want to talk about it, the world had just turned and I came back to create a cure for all this”
“You and Long John? What’s going on there?”
She laughed this time shutting the book. “Nothing is going on there he just gets me.”
“And I don’t?”
Andrea’s head shot up at the little argument going on between the half siblings and Dale looked through the mirror at his daughter who returned the glance while they locked eyes for a little bit finally breaking it she looked back at her brother and opened her book again returning her eyes back to the page she left. “No you don’t.”
The group arrived at the CDC by dark time hoping to get in Rick was arguing with the camera and Daryl and Katie locked eye contact switching her eyes away from him and turn around to take guard she kept her eye intensely locked on the street.
“Guys.” She said suddenly, stiffly aware of what was coming. “Guys we have to go NOW.”
“What?” John said suddenly aware of what was happening he got his sword out and ready and stood beside Daryl and the female. “Shane.” Katie called hoping he could hear her. “Shane.”
“Oh god.” She said under her breathe before she could shoot a walker a bright line shone and she turned around surprised by the blinding light following her path she walked in deeply surprised a voice stopped her.
“Yes.” She said stepping forward.
“Any of you bit?” He asked.
“One of our group was…” Rick said but Katie blocked out the sounds around her she was staring at him surprised it was only when Shane tapped her she snapped out of it and found herself running with them.
“Are we underground?” Carol asked, just as everyone started talking the world spun around in circles for Katie and everything went blurry.
“She’s in shock.” Jenner said putting his hand on her forehead.
“What do we do?”
“Get her hydrated, rested.”
“Katie stay with me.” Shane said looking down at his younger sister.
“Shane.” She whispered feeling the world continue to spin; she tried not to think about it but made it worse.
And then like that the lights went out.
When Katie woke up everyone was drinking, showering even and Katie didn’t miss the opportunity to have a shower walking out she took a bottle of scotch off Rick tacking a swig of it she walked into the kitchen only to see Long John standing there with a full bottle of Jim Beam playing Never Have I Ever with himself.
“Having fun there?” She asked walking over to him.
“Sure lots of it.”
“Nice.” She said a smirk on her face.
“Play with me?”
“No I’m more of an adult than you I don’t play games.” She said feeling her mood darken.
“Okay.” She said as she began circling him. “Never have I ever fooled around in my parents bed.”
“Never have I ever called someone the wrong name while ‘Doing it.”
“Never have I been pregnant before.”
“Never have I ever flirted to get what I want.”
“Never have I ever broken someone’s heart.”
“Never have I ever done body shots.”
“Never have I ever had a one night stand.”
“Never have I ever had… sex.”
John’s eyes immediately went up to meet hers looking her body up and down he felt the control go and immediately brought his lips up to hers, pushing her against the cold counter top the kisses deepened as her arms found their way around John’s neck her hands tangling in his short dark curls pulling him even closer to her as if they depended on each other to survive.
John groaned wanting to feel her skin against his, his hands trailed up to her thigh and lifted her up onto the metal table.
It was less than a minute they separated so she could pull off her top and he unbuttoned his, his lips found hers again and she used her hands to push his shirt off him. John handled her with care but also like she was as weightless as a feather.
Next thing she knew she was pressed against the wall both of them eager to explore the other what soberness they had were now both gone and they both lost control as John kissed down her collar bone stopping there his lips finally returned back to her lips and everything melted.
Groaning Katie woke up to a throbbing headache, sitting up with full force her head felt brainless and she struggled to sit up right it was only than she realised there was a sleeping figure next to her confused she turned around slightly despite her body’s protests to sleep through the day and as if her hands had a mind of their own covered her mouth so no one could hear her gasp.
Standing up she struggled to find her clothes finding them scattered everywhere she quickly sat them on and ran out before anyone could notice she made her way to the small area and sat down next to Glenn who was groaning with his head in his hands.
“Don’t ever let me drink again.”
“Same.” She said flicking her hair back.
“Is that a bruise on your neck?” Carl asked Katie, confused she looked at her neck and stopped when she saw it.
“Is that a love bite? “Her Dad asked her protective.
“Feel like playing Dad all of a sudden do we?” Katie snapped at him suddenly forgetting about the hangover standing up and storming past John who grabbed her arm making her turn around to face him.
“Nothing okay.” She snapped turning around and walking into the small area she glanced at the clock and closed her eyes.
