Back at the Sanctuary…
“Get her to bed…” Negan ordered as Jacoby had Bella in his arms.
Desi was quick to gasp out and Negan placed a hand over her mouth.
“Shhh… Baby-girl has been through a great deal and she needs her rest.” He whispered.
“But she’s okay?” she practically whimpered.
He smiled and nodded. Desi hugged him and started to cry.
“Bringing her back… I knew you would.”
“How’s the new fort holding up?”
She frowned a bit.
“It’s not the Sanctuary…”
The man nodded with a touch of a frown as well.
“It’ll take sometime but we’ll get there.” He said whilst moving a strand of hair from her eyes.
Jacoby waved them off as he exited the house. Negan reached over and locked the door.
“On your knees…”
Desi didn’t so much as question it and did as she was told. Negan whipped himself out and grabbed a fistful of Desi’s hair.
“Suck that dick.”
The moment her mouth came into contact, he threw his head back. There was a twinge of guilt on Bella not being included, but the man was backed up and needed the release. He wouldn’t put his ‘baby-girl at risk. He’d more than make it up to her later.
“Mmmm just like that, Desi. Choke on that fucking cock!”
Desi opened her mouth and looked him in the eyes. Negan let out a growl as she jerked him off and had him shooting a load into her mouth. Once she finished she licked him clean. Negan helped Desi back to her feet. He took a kerchief from his pocket and wiped her face clean.
“We gotta talk…” he murmured afterward.
He knew he had to cover what all Bella went through. It was going to take the both of them in order to bring Bella back. And just as he assumed she would, Desi broke into sobs. It took a few minutes to calm her down. He let her know they were still on the hunt for the one responsible. Negan cleared his throat as he was hugging her and kissed the top of her head.
“We’re to keep this in mind, during…”
Desi nodded gathering the hint.
“I know the two of you are pretty close. So do whatever you gotta do. I just want my baby-girl back. I’m hoping you have something to offer, being a woman and all.”
“And what if it requires getting a bit touchy feely?”
This had the man narrowing his eyes in question.
“You mean as in without me?!”
She nodded and he frowned but looked to be in thought.
“If you think it’ll help. I don’t particularly like the idea. But I can see where you’re coming from and know it may be needed, if we’re to gain her trust again. Just no fucking… I mean it, Desi. That pussy is mine. Other than that… you’re golden.”
She lay against his chest and Negan ran a hand along her back. Just as he closed his eyes, Desi shot up with a gasp. Negan sighed, already knowing. They could hear Bella screaming from the bedroom.
“Easy… It’s just another night terror.” He murmured and came to his feet.
Sure enough, they entered the room and Bella looked as if she were fighting someone in her sleep. Negan slunk on over and planted his hands along her wrists.
“Come on now…” He called out and Bella shot awake.
“Daddy?!” She said and in such a way that tugged at his and Desi’s heartstrings.
The young blonde clamped a hand over her mouth and she quietly observed Negan’s response. He went about it like it was routine. He rolled onto his side and pulled Bella into his chest. He gestured for Desi to join them. She lay on the other side of Bella and they held her throughout the night.
“Good morning, sug.”
Desi softly giggled as Bella grabbed ahold of her and was hugging her close.
“D’aww, none of that now. Everything’s gonna be just fine.” Desi assured as Bella started to cry.
Negan stretched his arms about and turned towards his wives. He merely observed as Desi loved on Bella. She kissed the wounded area on her abdomen and ran a hand along her thigh. Bella looked over with slight alarm. Negan gave a simple nod and kissed her. This was his way of letting her know it was alright. She was fine up until Desi reached the area of her sex. Bella froze and Negan was quick to move Desi’s hand. Once Desi saw the look on Bella’s face she apologized, profusely. Bella nodded but crawled on out of the bed and threw her robe on. She left the room and Negan let out a frustrated sigh.
“I didn’t mean to hurt her.”
“You didn’t. It’s all in here…” Negan pointed to his head.
“That’s the part we gotta work on.”
“Bella knows we’d never hurt her, right?!”
“I’m sure she does, Desi. But that doesn’t take away what that prick did to her. You didn’t see what I saw. It won’t happen overnight. We got a long road ahead of us.”
Negan pecked her on the lips and went to check on Bella. When he opened the bathroom door however, he reared back. Bella was sitting on the counter with her legs spread apart and examining herself.
“Everything alright?” he questioned causing her to jump.
Her entire face flushed over and she was quick to close her legs. Negan made his way over and nodded upon her reflection.
“You wanna tell me what you were doin’?”
“It’s nothing. I’m fine.”
He shook his head, seeing the lie written all over her face.
“Come on now… What’s going on in that fucked up mind of yours?”
She closed her eyes and that blush returned.
“I was just checking on something, that’s all.”
“On…?” He probed as he kissed along her shoulder.
“I wanted to make sure I wasn’t… well you know.”
This had him tilting that head of his and raising his brows in wonder. He hadn’t a clue where she was going with this.
He shook his head no.
“Gross…” she whispered with a scowl.
Negan had a good laugh at this and that only added to her misery.
“Why on earth would you that?!”
“Um hello? I had a fucking bat shoved up my ass!” She snapped and he nodded.
He pried her legs apart and took a gander.
“You’re a little swollen still but that doesn’t get my dick hard. It’s that pink pussy of yours.”
“And what if it were that instead of my ass?!”
“Then I’d have to fuck that sexy mouth of yours instead. Now are you done?!”
“NO!” she snapped but with a tearful giggle.
Negan shook his head but with a touch of a smile.
“Batshit crazy… is what you are.”
She nodded and wrapped her arms around his neck.
“You’re not getting all needy and fucking clingy on me, are you?”
He chuckled and pecked her on the lips.
“Daddy’s going on a little trip.” He said as he put his forehead to hers.
“And I’m guessing I’m staying behind?”
“Let’s face it the little road wife is sidelined.”
She frowned and for whatever reason that had the man smiling.
“It won’t be for long.”
“And what am I supposed to do? Laundry? Scrub fucking toilets?”
He arched a brow on this.
“You don’t strike me as the type but it’s whatever floats your boat…”
“This sucks ass!”
“God damn. You are fucking cute as HELL!” He expressed and looked to be in longing.
He drew back the deepest of breaths, doing his best to shake it off.
“I’ll be back before you know it. You and Desi keep out of trouble and watch your fucking backs. I mean it. I had better not come back to find you two gone or worse… Hold up the fort and I’m saying that in the sense that I’ll be taking my best men with me. So you’re pretty much the weight around here if something goes south.”
“Aye, aye cappytain.”
“That being said… It’s time I show you around. Get you familiar with a few things. And you need to know where to go if under attack.”
“Are you expecting a war?”
“Not sure what to fucking expect. But I don’t see your uncle letting this one go. It might take a bit, but he’s making plans. We both know that. As to why I’m taking the boy with me. Now I need you to listen to me. I’m not fucking around when I say that you cannot trust ANYONE from New Haven, especially that of your uncle. I mean it baby-girl. From here on out, Rick Grimes is the enemy and even you are not safe. He will kill you first change he gets.” But as he said this Negan looked pissed.
“You’re gonna make me regret not killing him. I just know it. This is why I HATE breaking the rules.”
“So it’s my fault?”
“More or less… You would’ve cried like a little bitch if I killed him, but it’s what should’ve taken place. That’s the problem with you baby-girl you want it all or nothing! And I can’t very well give you that.”
“But I’m the baby-girl…” She teased.
Negan tilted his head and let out a sigh.
“That you are, spoiled little shit. Hell, I can’t even argue with that fucking logic.”
“Hmmm” Negan hummed as he kissed Desi and Bella goodbye.
“You two behave…” he hinted with a smirk.
He gave them both a firm smack on the rear and headed on out the door.
“You coming?” he hollered once he spotted Carl outside.
The boy reared back then looked behind him as if Negan was referring to someone else.
“I’m talking to you, kid.”
Carl rolled his eyes and shrugged. He was still bitter about being there in the first place. Negan walked on over and looked him dead in the eyes.
“We’re gonna hunt down the bastard that did this to your cousin, you in or not?”
Negan nodded as the boy said nothing but climbed on into the RV.
“Are you sure about leaving them…?” Jacoby gestured towards the house where the wives were.
“Baby-girl’s got this…”
Jacoby sighed as he regarded the few men Negan had keeping guard. It didn’t seem near enough and it wasn’t like Negan to leave his wives unprotected. Jacoby wondered what the hell Negan was up to.
“I sure hope so…” he muttered under his breath.
“Better?” Desi asked once they had Bella’s bandages redone.
Bella nodded as Desi handed her a pain pill.
Desi smiled then pecked her on the cheek. Bella lowered her tank top and Desi helped her off the counter.
“I just wanted to apologize.”
“This morning. I…”
Bella put a finger along the blonde’s lips and shook her head.
“Don’t. Seriously. We’re good.”
“Did I hurt you?”
“No. It’s just…”
Bella drew back a breath and let it out before answering.
“I’m not sure I can even explain it. I have these flashes… and from time to time it all replays itself. I haven’t any control. It just happens. But you didn’t do anything wrong, Desi.”
“He had no right…” Desi said with unreserved anger.
“You belong to Negan. That man… he hasn’t a clue what’s coming for him. Negan will destroy everything about him.”
Bella nodded but hadn’t a clue what to say to that.
“Are you hungry?”
“You don’t have to wait on me hand and foot…”
“But I want to.”
The young woman sighed as Desi took her by the hand and led her into the kitchen. Desi opened up one of the cabinets and brought down a can of SPAM and some beans.
“Feels weird, don’t it?”
Desi regarded Bella in question as she got their food prepared.
“And what’s that, sug?”
“Being the only ones left…” Bella hinted and Desi laughed but was quick to cover her mouth with this guilt-ridden expression.
Bella smiled and propped her feet up on the table.
“Sorry… I shouldn’t have laughed.”
“When it comes to THAT… I believe we’re on the same page. No offence to Tracy of course. She was sweet and all, but…”
“She wasn’t ‘wife’ material, at least not in the means of Negan.”
“Exactly. And don’t even get me started on Sherry and Amber.”
“Speaking of which… Amber had the most irritating fake orgasm ever.”
Bella’s eyes widened on this.
“I’m not kidding. There were times Negan had me keeping her mouth shut, during…”
“Yep. I think that’s why Negan’s got such a soft spot when it comes to you. You’re like anti-all wives, myself included. You’ve got the looks, the brains, and you kick ass. He tends to smile and laugh more I’ve noticed too. He’s so genuine around you. It’s refreshing. Even I got tired of the same ole same ole. It was like they were putting on a show after too long and even Negan saw past it. I think his only appeal to Sherry was those fake tits of hers.”
Bella snorted on this.
“Desi… Negan loves you. I hope you know that.”
“He does. But nowhere near like that of you. He’s never had anyone like you. Neither have I… Like I said, it’s refreshing and that’s why the three of us click. So much so I heard him telling Jacoby he wasn’t sure he wanted another wife.”
“Now that I gotta call bullshit on.”
Desi cut her an odd glance.
“This is Negan we’re talking about. Sorry Desi, but we don’t need to kid ourselves. Hell for all we know that’s why he went off on his own this time.”
“You should give him more credit.”
Bella drew back a breath and looked to be in thought.
“All I’m trying to say is not to give your hopes up. I’m sure he might’ve felt that way at the time he told Jacoby this. But Negan… well his mind is all over the place. And that could change soon enough. So we need to be prepared.”
Desi nodded in understanding.
“Well either way we’re still the favorites!”
“Oh absolutely!” Bella replied with a smirk.
“Whatever bitch Negan decides to bring home won’t have a fucking clue.”
“I think I love you.”
Bella had a good laugh at this.
“The feeling is mutual… so do me a favor and stick around for a bit.” Bella did her best to hint.
The two wives shook on it and laughed afterward.
“You’re kidding…” Negan uttered with a chuckle.
“Nope… the man calls himself Jesus.”
Negan nodded and exited the RV. The Saviors brought the longhaired man to his knees and Negan tilted his head.
The man nodded.
“Well hell, Jesus… I suppose that makes me your father!”
The Saviors had a good laugh at this and Negan circled the man with Lucille in hand. He leaned into Jesus’s ear.
“Word is that you have a new member back at the Hilltop Colony…”
The man sort of laughed.
“And what is it you wish to know.”
“What’s this?” One of the Saviors questioned as Bella handed him a blue print.
“The new Sanctuary.”
The man had a good laugh at this. But she just stood there with this unamused look about her.
“You’re kidding… you are aware of the amount of lumber and…”
“I’m well aware.” She interrupted and the man shook his head.
“No can do. You’re fucking nuts. Besides, Negan calls the shots around here. And I don’t remember him making this announcement.”
“I know a place that has everything you need. So it’s really all about getting off your lazy asses. You want to build on to this community, or not?”
The man rolled his eyes and Bella gritted her teeth.
“You will do this.”
Bella ignored his little challenge and went on.
“This…” she tapped her finger along the blue print.
“Isn’t for me, but for Negan. And after everything he’s done for us, it’s the least we could do. He’s out there busting his ass so let’s give him something positive to come home to.”
“You had better do whatever the lady asks… You don’t want her daddy on your ass.” One of the other Saviors remarked but with a playful grin.
He patted her on the back and handed her a beer.
“That’s just the thing. I’m not asking.”
“Well now… I believe she’s made her point.”
The other Savior sighed and rolled his eyes.
“Fine, but this isn’t something that can be done overnight and Negan’s sure to arrive before we even truly begin.”
“Then I suggest you get started.”
“Carl?!” The all too familiar man hissed and the boy gave a simple nod.
“What are you doing with…”
“With…?” The boy challenged and with a snarl.
Shane let out an exasperated sigh “them…” Negan raised his brows on this and brought the man to his knees. The boy stared him down and was shaking all over. As for Jacoby and Negan… they looked to be in some sort of silent conversation.
“Why?” Carl demanded.
Shane rolled his eyes and sort of laughed.
“Why does it even matter now, kid?”
Negan reared back as the boy socked the living shit out of him.
“Dad welcomed you into the family! We trusted you and so did she! I can’t believe you were sleeping with my cousin! This is Bella we’re talking about. You should’ve known better. She’s not the kind of girl that’s going to cry on your behalf. No. She gets even. And she had every right… and what you did in response. Only proved what a whiny little bitch you truly are. She bruised that pathetic ego of yours and truth of the matter… You had it coming. This… All of this is because of YOU!”
Negan had a good laugh at this and Jacoby nodded in full agreement.
“I hope you suffer to the max for what you did to my cousin. I hope he takes that barbed wire bat of his and fucks you in the ass! And when he’s done… I’m going to kill your walker!”
Negan looked to his precious Lucille then back to Shane.
“I think there are places even Lucille won’t go. But I’ll do my best to achieve something of the sort.”
“I want to be the one that ends it…”
This had Negan raising his brows.
“Hmmm… I tell you what. You can have his walker but this bitch is mine until then.”
Carl nodded in agreement.
“Load him up, boys.”
The Saviors did as they were told and Negan patted Carl on the back.
“I didn’t think ya had it in you, kid. Nice to know you got a bigger set of balls than that of your old man.”
“Don’t you talk about my father!”
“Why? Because the truth hurts? Or do you feel guilty in the sense that you feel more ‘at home’ with us? Admit it. I’ve seen it and so have you. Face it. You’re one of us, whether you wish to admit it or not. You and that sexy cousin of yours, you were born with Savior blood.”
“I’M NOT ONE OF YOU!”
Negan had this wide grin about him.
“Is that why you’re carrying yourself differently?”
Carl whipped back around and Negan laughed.
“Look at you… Where was that confidence back in New Haven?”
“He’s got a point… I’m taking a likin’ to you myself.” Jacoby added.
“Yes. It seems there’s a reason as to why you’re baby-girl’s favorite. You don’t reek of pussy like the others. And it damn sure isn’t due to muff divin’, which is a god damn shame. Muff divin’ is fucking awesome! Speaking of pussy… Aren’t you about that age?” Negan nodded towards Jacoby.
“What’s the fucking age now?”
Jacoby laughed and rather shrugged.
“Hell if I know. He looks like he’s ready though.”
“Hmmm… I’m sure there’s someone back home that can help you with that. We got a few about your age or older if that’s what you’re into.”
Carl curled his lip in disgust.
“Or men… Hell, I ain’t judgin’ kid. You want Jacoby to suck your dick?”
“Dude!” Carl scolded causing both men to laugh.
“There’s someone here to see you.”
Bella turned as one of the Saviors approached her.
“He’s at the gate.”
“Do I even want to know?”
Bella sighed like she already knew and followed. The moment she caught wind of him she laughed. She waved her hand about letting the Saviors know to send him on his way.
“Wait!” he hollered out.
“It’s just me Bella, I promise. I’m unarmed and just here to talk.”
“I have nothing to say to you…” she murmured through gritted teeth.
“I was wrong. Denise… she told me the truth behind Maggie. What I didn’t see. I’m so sorry. Bella. I…”
“You what?” She spat as she pivoted back around.
Rick sighed and lowered his head.
“I screwed up and can admit it.”
“A little late for that, isn’t it? And let’s not kid ourselves. We both know the reason behind you being here and it hasn’t anything to do with me. He isn’t here… Try back another day.”
“I’m here for both of you.”
“Like hell you are. If Carl hadn’t agreed to Negan’s terms, you wouldn’t be here. You’d have written me off like you originally did. I’m your last hope on getting your son back.”
“I came back for you, remember?”
“Oh I remember alright… And did I or did I not wake up in a jail cell?”
“I already explained my reasoning!”
She’d this certain look about her and shook her head.
“It’s bad enough, he took you. But now my son? Even you have to realize just how FUCKED up that is!”
“It was me.”
Rick narrowed his eyes and regarded her in question.
“I’m the one passed the suggestion over to Negan. In fact it took some convincing.”
“What are you saying exactly?”
“That it was me that took your son. I figured it best considering you’re all about to die anyhow. Why should he suffer? This isn’t his war, it’s yours.”
“You… You took my son?!”
Bella nodded assuredly.
“And even with his hatred for Negan, he was so easily convinced… also your doing. Face it, you’ve lost everyone’s respect – even that of your own son.”
“YOU’RE WRONG! NEGAN’S DOING THIS! HE DID THIS TO YOU AND NOW HE’S GOT MY SON!”
Bella marched on over and jabbed her finger into Rick’s sternum.
“He is mine.”
Rick reared back on this.
“Keep up and pay close attention to what it is I’m saying. Carl… he belongs to me now. He was my gift from Negan. And you’re not getting him back, not ever. I will fight for him, every step of the way.”
Rick nodded with this crazed look in his eyes.
“Then you’re right. This war is mine. And you are first on my list.”
“Now that’s the uncle I know. Until then… do have yourself a wondrous day.” And on this note she had the Saviors escort him off the property.
“You’re worried about him, aren’t you?”
Desi questioned as Bella was soaking in the bath. She lifted her eyes and gazed her direction.
“It’s been a few days…” Bella replied with a shrug.
“Now you know how it feels…” Desi replied with a smile as she got undressed and joined Bella in the tub.
“You took your bandage off…” Desi said with slight alarm.
“Don’t need it. In fact the stitches should be ready to come out soon.”
“Your bruises are starting to fade as well.”
Bella nodded and dunked her head beneath the water.
“No one’s ever done that for Negan, you know.” She heard Desi say as she came back up.
“And what would that be exactly?”
“The rebuilding of the Sanctuary I mean. I think it’s going to mean a lot to him. See? It’s things like that – that make you the favorite.”
Bella said nothing but looked to be in thought.
“Something on your mind?”
“A lot actually, just having a hard time pinpointing one at a time.”
Desi smiled and cuddled up against her. Without even thinking on it, Bella wrapped her arms around her. Once she realized what she’d done, she sort of laughed.
“Nothing…” Bella murmured but was shaking her head.
They jumped however as they heard gunshots coming from outside. Bella was quick to lift Desi off her and hopped on out of the tub.
“Please be careful!” Desi called out.
Bella gave a simple nod and threw her robe on. She grabbed one of Negan’s guns and headed on out. She narrowed her eyes once she spotted where the ruckus was coming from. It was the area in which the Sanctuary was being rebuilt. She drew back an irritated breath and walked on over.
“There a problem?”
There were a handful of Saviors standing in the middle while the others were still working. The one causing her trouble earlier was amongst them. She looked over seeing that one of them had been shot in the arm.
“You do that?”
The guy nodded and his buddies were laughing.
“We fuck bitches. We don’t work for them…” He made clear and Bella nodded as his buddies laughed once again.
“You guys been drinking?”
The one that defended her earlier gave a simple nod and tossed her the bottle of whiskey.
“Since about noon…” he added.
Bella opened the bottle and took a decent plunge herself.
“What about you guys?” She motioned towards the others with the bottle.
“You got a problem?”
They shook their heads no and went back to work. Bella drew back a breath and walked on over towards the man causing so much trouble. She handed him the bottle of whiskey. Just as he went to take a swig, she buried her gun into his stomach and fired. His buddies were quick to respond, but she was quicker. She used the man as a human shield and took out the other three. She caught the bottle of whiskey before it hit the ground and tossed it back over.
“Clean this up before Negan arrives. I’ll take full responsibility. Now back to work. I’d hate to take another one of you idiots out. I’ve lost count as it is.”
The one that came to her defense died of laughter.
“Well you heard the lil darlin’ let’s clean this shit up.”
“Don’t tell Negan, but I think I’m in love.” One of the other men called out as they watched her walk away.
“You and me both, brother. You and me both…”
(Be a good sport by leaving your comment/review or a simple ‘like’ if you dug the chapter. I will be wrapping this story up soon and working on a contest piece. Once I get caught up on those, I will be getting back to my other works starting with A Webcatcher’s Dream, Restealing Twilight’s Swan, and Whistling Dixon. Thank you for your patience and support! I will be posting a blog with a few pics from the con I was at sometime this weekend.)
