Why You? Why Now?

*Rosalyn POV*

I walk downstairs into my living room, my answering machine light comes on. I have 2 new messages. I click the play button and the first one is about beauty products. I ignore that one, it's not important right now. The second one catches my ear though.

"Rosalyn....this is mom. I don't know where dad is but something bad has happened. Your father was eaten or something...I don't know." I turn around quickly and run the answering machine."I just want you to know that we both love you very much." Then I hear glass breaking. "NO! STAY AWAY FROM ME! GET AWAY! AHHHHHH!"


11. Drama on the Farm

Joey POV:

We pull up to this awesome farm. You have farm animals, a great fence, this place is amazing. I just sit there in utter shock. It looks like no walkers have ever came across this farm. If they have, they must of walked right past. There's an old lady standing on the house's porch.

Wait...who's standing next to her? Wait? Is that Ashton? No, it can't be, it's not.

The man stops the truck and we all pile out. Calum, Mike and Luke run up to Ashton, while Rosalyn and I take our time to get to him. I'm quite pissed that he left us for dead at the motel while he was staying here. Like how the hell did he get here? He didn't even tell us that he left. Ashton doesn't say anything. He just stands there. I might as well start off this soon to be argument.

"Did you plan on leaving us for dead back at the motel?" He rolls his eyes. "I'm being serious Ashton. We could of died while you were sitting on your ass here? Where did you even go?"

He doesn't answer me and I roll my eyes. He never answers a single fucking answer that gets thrown his way. He doesn't care about anybody but himself. All he cares about his getting out of this, which I can understand. But could he at least try to answer a simple fucking question for once?

"And of coarse, there's the silence." Says Luke. I'm surprised he said that. He never acts annoyed around Ashton. Never.

"Excuse me?" Ashton looks up at Luke with the devil in his eyes. I stand back a little and so does Rosie. I've decided to call Rosalyn either Rosie or Rosa.

"Ash...he didn't mean it like that." Calum try's to stop something before it starts. To late, Ashton grabs Luke's shirt and pushes him against the wall. Mike tried to break Ashton away but it doesn't work.

"Do you really think I have time for this shit?! Well? Do you?" Luke shakes his head no.

"Exactly. So why don't you hop the fuck off my shit and leave me the fuck alone?!" Ashton let's go of Luke and I look at Rosie. She looks like she's gonna cry. I rub her back and Calum grabs her hand.

Ashton looks over at them holding hands and he walks right in between them. Since Rosie didn't expect it she took it harder than Calum because Calum saw it coming.


"What was that?" Ashton walks away and Calum makes this sad face. Rosie falls to her knees in agony.

"I think I know" says Calum he turns Rosie to her side. Her shoulder popped out of place.

Alright. I'm done with this fucker.

I run after Ashton to talk some fucking sense into him.

Ashton POV:

I walk off after seeing Rosalyn and Calum hold hands. I walk in between them because... I didn't like it. I didn't like what I saw so I ended it then and there. I hear someone start to run up toward me. I look over my shoulder and see Joey.

For Christ sake! Just leave me alone!

"Hey! Dick face!" I ignore her and light a cigarette. I inhale deeply and close my eyes. I like the feeling of the smoke in my lungs and body. It makes me feel warm and cozy inside. I could forget about all this zombie shit from a cigarette. But then you need to come back to reality.

"Dick head. Answer me already?!" I look at her. She just slaps me across the face. Hard. I grab her hair and I pull her down to the floor. I sit on top of her. I restrain her arms with my left hands and I grab my gun with the other.

She knows what I'm gonna do, so she screams like a baby. I'm not gonna actually shoot her. I'm just gonna scare her. I lost all my bullets from all the walkers walking around the motel.

"Listen to me. Don't fucking touch me again. Do you fucking hear me?" I put the gun to her head and I pull the trigger.


I look down at Joey. She's still alive! For a second there, I thought I actually shot her. Everyone would of thrown me on the street for dead. Tears fall down her face as she tries get free. I finally stand up and kicks me in the balls. I expected it though. I mean I might of just given her a concussion. And I threatened to shoot her too so....consider us even.

Calum POV:


I here this loud popping noise from next to me. I look at Rosalyn, who's on the floor with tears in her eyes. Her arm doesn't look right.

Wait! I thought. No way Ashton could of done that!?

But he did. And now we have an injured with us. We can't keep injured people for so long because we can't take care of them. Like my mom decided to come on the trip with us to the United States of America. Lucky to find out that there was an infestation going around and that the planes couldn't take us home. I always knew that was bull shit because you still see them flying around.

My mom and everyone else were walking around, looking for a place to stay, when we met Joey. Man did Luke like her or what?! They were always flirting and everything. Now they act as if they are married.

My mom didn't see that walker coming. Maybe if I yelled at her to run, she could of made it in time and she wouldn't of gotten bitten. My mom didn't want to become one of "them". So I had to shoot her. I'm not my old self anymore. I'm a lot different. Ashton's probably had it the worse though. No words can describe what he's been through.

I take Rosalyn inside so mrs. Donner, the lady who owns this farm, can take care of her. I sit in a chair right out front of the door. I put my head in my hands and I think about mom.


"Honey, it has to be done." I look at her with pleading eyes. She looks back at me with yellow eyes instead of her normal ones.

"Mom....I'm not shooting you." She doesn't look at me. She's looks at the stars above instead.

"Do for me. It's my final wish."

"But I can't."

"But you can."

"Soon, I'll be up there in the stars and you'll look up at me every night."

"No mom. We'll do it together."

"Please son, I don't want to me one of......them...." She closes her eyes. "I'm gonna.....miss.....you..................Ca-" her eyes close and her body slumps against the tree stump.

"I love you." I whisper in her ear. I hold up the gun and I try my best to shoot. I couldn't. Ashton did it for me.

*end of flashback*

I walk into living and I plop down on the couch. I can't stop thinking about her. Rosalyn comes to sit next to me. Her arm is in a sling. Mrs. Donnner goes into the kitchen to finish her dinner cooking. Rosalyn looks at me and pouts.

"I can't talk about it."

"You can." Her eyes beg for me to tell her. I tell her the whole story, my voice constantly cracking for revenge of my tears not being set free.

She takes my head and puts it on her good shoulder. I sit my head in the crock of her neck. It's comfortable. She takes my hand and we hold hands for what feels like and eternity. That is until Joey came in crying. She told us all about Ashton. I didn't bother looking for him though. I have enough on my mind.
