I pull up the big brown wooded and white house we call home. I get out of the tiny Prius and run inside. I run into the living room to see Peter, Jacob, Cornelious and April on the couch talking. I run up to Peter who stands up and hug him. "I missed you so much Peter. I'm sorry I left you. I can't stop thinking about you and I feel like such a jerk. I'm sorry for hurting you and blaming what happened to Chelsea on you. I feel so stupid. I want -."
"Airaya calm down. Come with me so we may speak in private." Peter says holding me close.
I nod and we head to my room, Peter and I sit on my bed. I turn towards Peter and open my mouth to speak, but Peter silences me.
"Why are you so upset? What happened out there?" Peter asks with a concerned caring tone.
I take a deep breath. "Well first we got surrounded by a lot of biters, so John and I had to lure them away while Ross and Dr. Hodgens drove the car a bit ahead while we were in the woods. John and I were talking and he asked if I liked Dr. Hodgens and I said I did and he heard and so he said I was disgusting and to never speak to him again and I got upset and so we drove to the house and I had one of my melt downs and I got attacked by a walker, but it didn't bite me just so you know, and anyway, Ross came in and told me that he told Dr. Hodgens that you told him that the only reason I dated you was for protection and so I got mad and so I got mad and ran out and John made Xara and me talk out our issues and while he and I were talking Ross got bit and so Xara made me leave the room and he cut off his arm and so we went to a hospital and there were these people there and they had a baby and they wouldn't fix Ross until we cleared out like 10 zombies and so we did that and then we left and here we are." I say sniffling.
Peter holds me close. "I was so worried about you. I'm so sorry about everything. I just want you to be mine again. I promise I will treat you right."
I look up at Peter, "I'll be yours okay?" I pull away and smile up at him. I suddenly frown. "I have something to tell you and I don't want you to get mad."
Peter smiles, "I promise I won't get mad."
"I killed the people from the hospital." I say with a sigh.
"What?" Peter asks looking at me with a concerned voice, "Where they going to kill you?"
I take a deep sigh, "I don't know if anyone else saw, but they were bitten, They were dying whenever we got there and when we explained that we amputated Ross's arm they were in a hurry for us to clear out the hord of biters that were on the the third floor, my assumption thinking back now, was that while we were gone, which was about an hour, because we had to go find the little suckers, was they amputated part of their neck because when we got back Krysta was wearing a turtle neck. That's when I knew something was up because I mean, It's in the middle of July, who wears a turtle neck in this weather? I haven't told the others yet because they would hate me. We actually got supplies."
"Oh Airaya, I am glad you did that because if I lost you I don't know what I'd do." Peter says pulling me back into his arms.
"And a baby."I say nonchalantly.
"Wait what?" Peter asks pushing me away so he can see my face.
"They had a baby and I couldn't just abandon him like that, Peter. Can we take him in please? He will be our own. I know he won't replace Chelsea, but he will fill the void in my heart." I ask looking up at him with a puppy dog face.
Peter groans and slicks his brown and grey hair, "I don't know Airaya. You can't just kill people and take their baby sweetheart. I know it was for the greater good and I know the opportunity was perfect, but."
I frown and start to walk out of my room
"Joking, of course we will claim his as ours." peter says with a chuckle and takesw my hand. "I want to see him."
I smile and lead him down to the living room to see Xara holding Kaydeth. I tap on Xara's shoulder.
Xara turns around, "Oh hey Airaya." He smiles and hands me Kaydeth.
I turn to Peter, "Peter, this is Kaydeth." I hand Kaydeth over to Peter.
Peter smiles and holds Kaydeth close. "I adore him already."
John runs in, "Oh my god, Airaya, Xara come quick!" John runs to the back room and we follow to see a hord of biters attacking our members.
"Oh my god." I run back to the living room. "No one come back here! Peter make sure no one comes back here. I am shutting the door." I shut the wooden door and run through the hallway to the back room. I take my machete out from the holder around my waist. I quickly turn to the left and hack my machete at the biter. After killing 10 biters and more coming through the shattered window I groan. "Run! We won't be able to control it!" John, Xara, Kathy Roman and I all run back into the living room. I slam the door shut, "Grab everything you can and run for the cars. Go to the meet up spot! Stay there until we all get there!" I yell. I look over at John, "John where is your brother? Where is Ross?" I yell struggling to keep the biters on the other side of the door.
"He's in our room upstairs." He runs up stairs.
In a matter of a minute, everyone is out the door except Xara and me. Xara runs up to me. "Airaya let me hold the door. I can hold them back while you two escape. I'll be right behind you. I promise."
"Xara no! We can escape all at the same time!" I start tearing up knowing what is to come.
Xara grabs my face and kisses me gently on the lips. "I wanted to do that the minute I laid my eyes on you Airaya. I am in love with you, I've never been in love before and I'm glad I got to kiss the love of my life."
"Xara plea-" I start.
"Shut your mouth and listen to me, I will make it out alive. Everything will be fine. Go outside and go. Don't turn around for anything. I will find you." Xara says starting to tear up.
I start crying, "I love you. I can't loose you Xara. I will wait for you." I caress his face and kiss him with such passion I forget about the life threatening situation he and I are in. "I love you Xara." I let him get the door and I grab my stuff and run towards the door and let my hand linger on the door.
"I love you too Airaya. Now get out of here." Xara says with a hint of struggle.
I open the door and see that all of the cars are gone. I run back in, "Xara! They're gone! Come on! Make a run for it!"
"I can't believe you were actually going to leave me!" Xara yells letting go of the door and running towards the door that leads us to safety.
I take his hand. "I'm sorry. I love you Xara."
