Shelby's Guide On How To Survive

I listened to the gun shot going off in the distant. I didn't want to get caught in the middle of it. It was a zombie horde I could tell. I creeped quietly making sure I couldn't be seen. I saw one women, one man, and one little girl. The little girl was on the ground.
"Come on she's a lost cause!" said a male voice.
"We can't leave her Jake!" said a female voice.
"She's going to get us killed Lauren!"


16. La Vie En Rose

Seeing Liam taking charge was refreshing. He understood me. He understood everyone. When we got back to Alexandria Rick questioned why we were back. When he heard the story Rick offered to let us stay in the safety of Alexandria's walls. Reluctantly we all agreed. Night came upon us as we settled into our temporary house.

"This place is way better than our camp," Sam said.

"Definitely," I agreed.

"I'm going hit the hay guys," Same said stepping into his room.

"Are you going to bed?" Liam asked.

"Not yet," I answered.

"Okay I might," Liam said, "unless you want to talk."

"Liam what if they're tricking us."

"Tricking us? You worry too much."

"I've always worried too much, but I'm serious."

"They aren't tricking us. You've got nothing to worry about."

"What if they are!"

"Then at least we're getting tricked together."

"Shelby, do you know what la vie en rose means?"
"Life in pink?"
"Yeah that's the real definition, but I have my own definition of it."

"What is it?"
"It means to be in love."

I froze. I didn't know what to say at that moment.

"But i-it's nothing," Liam said turning away.

"Liam," I said, "D-do you like me?"
"Shelby! It's nothing," Liam said walking away.

"Liam tell me!" I demanded. 

"Do I love you when I say you can always talk to me, I put your emotions ahead of mine, the other girls are nothing compared to you, your smile lights up the entire room to me, and overall I would give my last drop of blood so you can live, so you can make what this world has turned to a hell of a lot more bearable. Does that sound like I love you?" Liam asked.

"Liam," I said shocked.

"Shelby I-i'm sorry," Liam said.

I pulled him into a hug. I didn't know he felt that way. I was so blind.


"Liam I-i didn't know," I said.

"Shelby I understand if you don't like me back," Liam said.

"No! Liam! I-i like you," I said nervously.

"Really?" Liam asked.

"Yeah," I said nervously, "La vie en rose."
