I do not own Twilight or TWD. Friendly reminder: this is AU and there are a couple familiar quotes taken from the TWD comic books. I couldn’t resist lol.
“When needed… And that’s your own doing. You killed my nephew. It’s only fair… Now would you please decide? I’m getting a bit antsy and I might just go for broke and see what comes of it.”
Bella looked upon her fiancé and father in a panic. There was no way out of this. They were severely outnumbered and literally at this man’s mercy. With gritted teeth…
“What is it you want?!”
The man tilted his head and smiled.
“You really want to know?”
She nodded. He pointed “Lucille” her direction. But his eyes widened like he’d done something wrong. He brought the bat towards him and caressed it, lovingly.
“Now Lucille, I didn’t really mean it…” He whispered with a wink Bella’s way.
“She tends to get a little jealous…”
Bella rolled her eyes,”I’m not an option…”
“Are you sure about that? I bet I could change your mind…”
“Not interested so name something else.”
He sighed with true disappointment.
“Why would I want anything else? You’re the whole fucking package; a little spitfire with looks to kill for.”
“She’s taken, asshole!”
Negan turned towards Daryl with an amused look.
“Not if I rid of the competition…” he said with a shrug.
He twirled Lucille about and nodded upon the chief.
“And what about you, pops? You’re awfully quiet over there, considering this is your little girl and all… Are you a fucking coward? Is that it?”
“That’s enough…” Bella scolded.
“Damn, you’re fucking cute as hell, you know that? Here you are outnumbered, outgunned and still you have those ladyballs of yours dragging across the floor.” He motioned towards Daryl and her father.
“Last chance… Pick or Lucille does…”
Bella nodded and stepped before her father and Daryl.
“You feel the need to make someone pay… It might as well be me.”
“But that’s the easy way out. You don’t have to deal with the pain of losing a loved one then. How’s that fucking fair?”
“You want them? You gotta go through me. So bring it, you demented son of a bitch!”
The man sighed.
“I can’t do that…”
“Why the hell not?”
He reached out and jerked her back behind him. He swung his bat Daryl’s direction and the chief shoved him out of the way, taking the hit and right in the face.
“DAD!” Bella screamed.
Charlie staggered back and Michonne struggled in the men’s hold, trying to get to him.
“That was meant for you!” Negan spat towards Daryl.
Daryl was in bad shape as it was. He couldn’t up straight and was pretty sure his back was broken, along with a few ribs. Some of the flesh had peeled back along his stomach and back where the barbed wire caught. But even through the tremendous amount of pain he was in. He had Bella in his hold, doing his damnest to hold her back.
“NO! PLEASE!” She cried as her father was sent another blow, this time hitting along his upper arm.
The barbed wire literally ripped the flesh off and it was oozing blood.
“STOP! PLEASE, JUST STOP! I’LL DO WHATEVER YOU ASK!” Bella shrieked with tears in her eyes.
“THE HELL YOU WILL!” Daryl spat.
Negan brought the bat over his shoulder and gazed upon her.
“Anything?” he asked with stars in his eyes.
She nodded broke out of Daryl’s hold, rushing over to help her father. She cupped his chin and sobbed back even harder as his cheek was split open, revealing the inside of his mouth.
“Dad!” She called out in a panic as he went limp in her hold.
Negan rolled his eyes as she was rocking him and doing her best to stop the bleeding.
“Oh please, what a couple of fucking pussies! That wasn’t even my hardest. They got off light!” He scoffed.
She cut him a go to hell look and he chuckled.
“Eh, he’ll be fine. They’re lucky I gave Lucille a good bath beforehand. You wanna talk about gettin’ Walker jizz all over you! That’s some nasty fucking shit. And that’ll do a real number on ya! So back to our discussion…”
Daryl shook his head already knowing where this was going. What was it with everyone wanting what was HIS?!
“You’ll do whatever I ask of you?”
“If you agree to leave them alone and leave this prison at once!”
He nodded as she ripped a good chunk off her shirt off and held it to her father’s cheek.
“Done! I think it’s time you join us Saviors anyhow.”
He nodded once again and motioned towards his men.
“Never had a woman on the team. This could prove to be somewhat interesting. Maybe even beneficial…” He hinted with a wink.
“Our women usually stay back home in the little community I told you about. They look after things while we’re gone. But you… You don’t belong there or with these fucking losers. You belong right alongside of me!”
“You can’t be serious…”
“Do I look like I’m fucking joking?”
“You expect me to leave my father and fiancé behind?”
“Oh sweetheart, I’m doing you a fucking favor. Your chances with us are by far greater than if you were to stay behind and risk your neck for this bunch of fucking sad saps. I mean look at them!”
“I’ve had just about enough of that drivel coming from your ignorant mouth of yours! You speak of things you know nothing about! If they were a bunch of losers they wouldn’t here. Now would they?”
“They’re here because you managed to keep them alive. Tell me I’m wrong.”
“Hmmm… Either way, we had a deal. So I suggest you say your goodbyes and get to packing.”
Daryl shook his head and looked to Bella in disbelief. She regarded him and the others in thought. She knew if she argued this either Daryl, or her father would die, possibly both, along with everyone else…
“I have no choice…” She murmured as if reading the redneck’s mind.
“The hell ya don’t! You don’t have to go anywhere with this son of a bitch!”
Daryl took his vest off and tossed into a nearby corner. He motioned Negan over.
“If it’s a life ya need then take it. But you’re not takin’ my girl.”
“You so much as lay a hand on him and it’s no deal.”
Negan chuckled on Bella’s words.
“You know… I think I’ll go with what the lady wants on this. No hard feelings of course.”
“Wait… what are you doing?” she asked as he had some of his men leading everyone, but Daryl and Charlie into the cells.
“For mere insurance purposes… Surely you understand. They’ll be fine.”
“You can’t lock them up! How will they get out?!”
“Easily, if your friends have truly earned the amount of faith you put into them. They’ll fucking find a way, now won’t they?”
“You’re insane!” she hissed.
“Like I’ve never fucking heard that before. Now would you be so kind as to hurry the fuck up. I could change my mind, you know. Hell daddy looks like he like he’s begging for a mercy killing and you’re testing my god damn patience.”
Bella reached out as they grabbed her father and started to drag him away.
“NOOOO!” She shouted as they grabbed Daryl as well.
“Hold up…” Negan called out.
“Let her say goodbye. After all… she’ll never see them again.”
Her heart raced in thought. Her father was out cold and there wasn’t a way to say a proper goodbye. So as the men had him braced up against them, she merely cupped his wounded face.
“I’m so sorry, dad.” She kissed his forehead and Negan motioned for them to go ahead with locking him up.
Daryl rolled his eyes as she started on over. He held up a hand.
“Nah… I ain’t doin’ this. If yer gonna go, then go. I’m not tellin’ ya fuckin’ goodbye.”
She staggered back on his words and Negan laughed.
“Well isn’t he just a fucking ray of sunshine? I can see what you see in him.”
“THE HELL WITH YOU, ASSHOLE!” Tears were streaming down the redneck’s face and he angrily wiped them away. His entire face was fiery red and he was shaking all over.
“Daryl…” Bella whimpered and in such a heartbroken manner – it actually gathered Negan’s attention.
She came to her knees and hard.
“WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?!” she cried.
“I already told you. Now wrap it up, and you…” He pointed to Daryl. “Quit being such a whiny little bitch and give her a proper goodbye! She just saved your god damn life!”
Daryl’s only focus was her at the moment. He’d really hurt her this time and could see it in her eyes. And he hated himself for that. It wasn’t her fault and he deep down he knew that. She was doing what she could to keep everyone alive. But he’d much rather die than to have her leave with that asshole. He couldn’t bear the thought of saying goodbye. This was killing him and he hadn’t a clue on how to go about putting a stop to this. This could be the last time he’d ever set eyes on her again. Then there were the numerous scenarios he had going through that head of his. She was one woman amongst a group of over forty men; being led by a ruthless man, one that showed a little too much interest. This was Merle over again. And here she was on her knees, literally broken and he was just standing there, unable to move. He couldn’t protect her now. Everything was out of his control. What he wouldn’t give for things to go back to the way they were, when it was just the two of them. He knew it was selfish but he felt as if she were better protected that way. None of that mattered now. This son of a bitch was taking her away. Something ignited within and he found himself pushing past the pain. He rushed over and brought Bella to her feet. The redneck wrapped his arms around her and hugged her close.
“I know you haven’t a choice…” he whispered and she cried against his shoulder.
He nodded and closed his eyes for a brief moment. He’d have done the same thing in her position and knew it. As he cupped her chin he drew back a breath. With his thumbs, he wiped her tears away. Daryl leaned into her ear… “I’ll never give up. You know that, right?”
She nodded and Negan was doing his best to hear what was being said.
“Every day, I’m gonna be out there, lookin’. And you had better keep truckin’. I mean it, sweet thang. Don’t you even think about pullin’ somethin’ stupid, like givin’ up. I love you, never forget that.
Negan rolled his eyes as he picked up on the last part. Daryl put his forehead to hers.
“Fuck it… When I find ya. We’re gettin’ hitched. So ya better prepare.”
She sort of laughed and he forced a smile.
“This talk of waitin’ and for what? Look around us, little bunny. This is it. The world’s gone to shit and damn near everyone we ever loved is gone. They ain’t comin’ back. And it’s not about to change anytime soon. So if we’re gonna face this hell. Then we might as well do it together, all the way.”
“Are you really falling for all this sappy lovefest shit? He’s gonna move on and be just fine.” Negan interrupted. Daryl flipped him off as he hugged her once again.
“Take care of them…” she hinted as to her father and the others.
He nodded. She gave him one last kiss and Daryl fought for it to linger, even after she went to pull away.
The leader pointed to Maggie.
“I’m sure he’ll be fucking her first chance he gets!”
They ignored him and locked eyes one last time.
“I …” He put a finger along her lips.
“Don’t… Ya just save that for when I’ve earned it. Cause I damn sure don’t at the moment…”
“Daryl…” She went to argue this but Negan’s men were already locking him up in a cell beside her father’s.
Bella regarded everyone within the room once last time. Glenn was holding Maggie as she continued to cry on her father’s behalf. He gave Bella a simple nod as if to let her know he understood. She nodded in return. Tyreese, and Michonne had guilt ridden appearances about them. Bella cleared her throat once they got Daryl situated. He had his hands wrapped around the metal bars.
“I still say we get a dog…”
Negan had this confused look about him as Daryl managed to laugh.
“Hey, whatever you want, little bunny.”
She nodded and pivoted around, facing Negan.
“We leave last. I wanna make sure you keep your end of the deal.”
“Fair enough…” He motioned for his men to go on.
“Um no… Their weapons and supplies stay right here.” She said as one of the men started to load them up in a bag.
“That wasn’t the fucking deal…”
“You want me to go or not?!”
“Do you want me to kill your pussy of a redneck lover or not?”
“They need those!”
“And so do we…”
He handed her Daryl’s crossbow and winked.
“Think of it as a parting gift! See, I can be pretty god damn accommodating! Now he’ll be a part of you and everywhere you fucking go! And I’ll even go as far as to take just half of their supplies, happy now?”
Daryl didn’t argue this. He actually agreed with the sick son of a bitch for once. If anyone was going to take his crossbow, it might as well be her. He gave her the go ahead and she shook her head in disagreement.
“Go on, little bunny. Show them motherfuckers what a little ass-kicker ya are.”
“And I do believe that’s a wrap. Time to go!”
The moment Negan left with Bella, Daryl lost it. He was throwing whatever else he could get his hands on. Glenn sighed as he looked on from his cell. Daryl growled out as he sent several punches at the wall. “HEY!” Glenn hollered as Daryl blacked out and hit the ground.
“Awe now, it’s gonna be okay. You’ll see…” Negan said once they left the grounds of the prison.
Bella wiped her eyes with the back of her hand and kept walking. Negan shook his head and sort of laughed.
“Where’s that tough act of yours now, eh?”
She spun around and quickly popped him one. He raised his brows and rubbed his cheek.
“Who says it’s an act?!” she barked and pivoted back around and started walking once again.
Negan smiled and put a hand over his heart.
“Damn that fucking woman…”
One of his men chuckled and nodded in agreement.
As they were heading to the trucks, a few of his guys were scooping her out. He smacked one of them in the back of the head.
“Consider this one taken…” he made clear and the guy nodded with a bit of a nervous twitch.
Negan patted him on the back and leaned into his ear.
“Look at her that way again and you’ll be having close encounters… of the Lucille kind.”
The guy swallowed back as Negan playfully kissed him on the cheek.
“And the lady calls shotgun!” He announced as he opened the passenger door for her.
She couldn’t believe how many trucks there were. Each of them was lined up along the road leading to the prison. It was enough to fit all forty of his men and their weapons/supplies. Of course many of them were piled in to the beds of the trucks, but that didn’t stop them. Bella glanced towards the prison once again.
She narrowed her eyes upon him.
“Looking back… you don’t ever look back. You just keep truckin’. It’s about moving forward. The life you once knew back at that fucking prison is now over. Welcome to the Saviors!” she gasped out as he lifted her up and placed her inside. He slammed the door shut after and headed on over to the driver’s side.
Bella ran her fingers along the necklace Daryl had given her. There was no describing the amount of hatred flowing through her. She’d just got her father back and she never dreamed she’d find love during the fucking apocalypse of all things, but she did. And even though she would keep her promise to Daryl, that wouldn’t stop her from unleashing HELL, the moment she had her chance. In fact she was already making plans to destroy Negan and everything he worked so hard to build. That would include his precious community, his “Saviors”, and whatever else came her way. And when she was done, she’d stand back and watch the look of horror on his face as his entire “empire” came crashing down. He’d live to regret this very day…
Daryl eyes batted about as he came too.
“You alright there?”
He nodded but groaned out a bit as he started to rise.
“Easy…” the woman said with a grimace as one of his ribs was trying to puncture its way through his chest.
“…fuck…” he grunted as she had him lay back down.
“You’re in no shape to be getting up anytime soon. Let me get the others out and I’ll see what I can do about your back and those ribs.”
He nodded but had this confused look about him.
“You left…” he murmured bitterly.
The woman smiled.
“I only made you think I did. I was just waiting for the right opportunity. Couldn’t have us all getting locked up, now could we? As to your girl… I know where they’re headed.”
“Like I said… I never left. I have my ways…”
Daryl managed to smile.
“She was right about you…”
“That she was… for the most part. But a betrayer. Well, I suppose I have no way of proving myself until we find her. And we will find her…” She did her best to assure.
He nodded and Carol smiled. She scurried off and quickly unlocked everyone else’s cell.
“Jesus…” she whispered once she opened the chief’s.
He was lying in a puddle of blood. She rolled him over and Michonne recoiled as she entered the cell.
“Charles…” She murmured looking ill.
“Let’s get him patched up before he winds up bleeding to death…”
“We got a bit of a trip ahead of us. If you feel the need, you can curl up in my lap and take a nap.”
“I’d rather spoon with a walker.”
“Well I suppose we all have our odd fetishes… And I could certainly arrange that.”
Bella rolled her eyes and looked out the window.
“So what’s with that nasty scar on your forehead? You’d be perfect, if it wasn’t for that hideous thing!” She recoiled as he reached over and lifted her bangs.
“What’s the “M” stand for?”
“One dead motherfucker… ”
He cocked a brow at this and observed her more closely.
“He rape you?”
She didn’t comment, just stared out the window. Negan gritted his teeth and shifted gears.
“All the more reason you don’t belong with those fucking slackers. Let me guess, your pussy of a man let it happen?”
Her hands balled up into fists and tears were streaming down her face.
“Once again, you speak of things you know nothing about.”
He shifted gears and adjusted the rearview mirror.
“Some dickhead beat and raped you, when he was done the bastard left his mark, just to prove a point. And what did the “redneck fiancé” do about it?!”
“Beat the living shit out of him and made a kabob out of his brain.”
Negan reared back at this.
“And the M was for Merle… his brother…”
“Huh, well I’ll be fucking god damned…”
“You haven’t any idea…”
Negan chuckled and went to remark on this.
“STOP THE TRUCK!” She shouted.
He sort of laughed but she opened the door and was about to leap on out. He snatched her back and slammed on the brakes. He sighed and shook his head.
“Now why’d the fuck…” he started to ask.
She shoved him back and broke out of his hold.
“Damn woman…” he uttered as he put the truck in park and took off after her.
Bella huffed it on over to the boy she saw in the distance.
He was on his hands and knees and crawling along the ground. She grabbed ahold of him and braced him against her. Once she managed to pry his hand away from his face, she gasped back in horror. Someone had shot him in the face and his right eye was gone. You could see clear through the socket.
“Oh my god! Who did this to you?!”
She ignored Negan and his men and picked Carl up.
“I got you, hun. Just hold on…”
Negan grabbed her by the arm.
“I never said the boy was welcome.”
She shrugged out of his hold. Bella headed on over to the truck and laid Carl down. She took his hat and tossed it into the back seat beside Lucille – who usually rode shotgun. Bella took her vest and shirt off. She placed the shirt along Carl’s eye. Negan wiggled his brows once he saw her to be in nothing but a black bra and blue jeans.
“Stay with me, Carl…” She called out as she got into the truck.
Bella had the boy in her lap.
“He’s gonna be one happy little shit…”
She cut Negan an odd look as he was peeking in through the open door.
“Waking up to a face full of tits…”
“You’re such an asshole!”
He smiled and shut her door.
“We need to take him back.” She ordered once he got back into the truck.
“Now that was fucking hilarious. How are they gonna help? You must be a god damn comedian. I knew one of those once…”
Negan looked over and curled his lip in disgust.
“That boy lives through that shit and he’s gonna be one fugly little dude.”
Just as he was to start the truck. She gritted her teeth and hopped back out. Negan pinched the bridge of his nose. “No Lucille, we can’t kill the bitch… No matter how god damn tempting it might be.”
Carl whimpered out. Negan rolled his eyes as the boy was getting blood everywhere.
“Damn boy, you’re messin’ up my motherfuckin’ upholstery!”
He lifted his eyes Bella’s direction and died of laughter.
“Now that’s what I’m talking about!”
He grabbed Lucille and rushed on out of the truck. Negan made his way over to see her beating the living shit out of another man. She hadn’t a weapon on her, yet she didn’t let that stop her. But the moment the man got a good hit in, Negan pulled her back and handed her off to his men. He motioned for the man to come at him instead.
“I bet you don’t have the guts! I’ll even let you have the first punch!”
Shane cut Bella a pleading glance. She flipped him off and eyed him down. Negan and his men died of laughter.
“Oh she really fucking hates you. I’m gonna go on a hunch and say you were the one that was unsuccessful in blowing that kid’s brains out? You know… The one that’s ruining my god damn truck?!”
The man dropped to his knees.
“Please. It was an accident. I was only trying to get him to listen!”
“I told you to take a free shot, not to get on your knees and act like you wanna blow me! Is that what you want? To suck me off like a little bitch?!”
Shane’s entire face flushed over as Negan acted as if he was going to unzip his pants. But he took Lucille across his face instead.
“Fucking pussy! STAND THE FUCK UP!”
He came to his feet and started to cry.
“Bella please…” Shane begged.
“You act as if I have some sort of say in this…” She scoffed, “and even if I did… I’d gladly sit back and watch you DIE!”
“Isn’t she fucking adorable?!”
Bella shook her head on this.
“Now last chance… are you going to take that shot or not, cocksucker?”
Negan gritted his teeth and tightened his hold around Lucille. Shane had turned his back to him and was walking away. Without warning, Negan hurried over and used everything he had in one good swing. And Bella actually heard the difference as there was a loud THWACK. He had meant it when he said he held back with Daryl and Charlie. Shane grunted out as the impacted brought him to his hands and knees. Negan didn’t stop there. He made his way around and took his boot to his face. Shane fell back and Negan beat the man within an inch of his life. By the time he finished, he had him disemboweled. The Saviors laughed as Bella gagged at the sight of Negan holding the man’s intestines.
“Looks like I was wrong. You got guts! See?! Lots of em!”
Negan laughed and as Shane’s eyes came to a close.
“Awe lookie there, he’s all tuckered out!”
His men joined in on the laughter. Negan cocked a brow however as Bella was already heading back to the truck.
“The little pistol… fuck I’m hard as hell.”
Bella grabbed a first aid kit from the glove compartment and started to work on Carl’s eye.
“We don’t have time for that shit. Get your ass in the truck. You wanna waste your time and energy on a dead kid, fine. But we’re hauling ass so get yourself situated!”
She ignored this and continued. The cocking of a gun was heard and Bella turned to see one of his men aiming the gun Carl’s direction.
“Now I like you. But I if you don’t do as you are fucking told. I’m gonna have to give my guy the go ahead and take that fugly little boy out of his misery.”
Bella rolled her eyes and bitterly climbed on in. He nodded and shut the door once again.
“Alright, no more stops!”
Negan reared back in damn near shock. Bella looked down and brushed the boy’s hair out from his eyes.
He groaned out and reached to his eye.
“Easy now…” Bella said as he was running his hand along the patch she created. She had his eye stitched up and had made a patch out of the gauze from the first aid kit and had it all wrapped up.
Carl began to panic once it truly dawned on him.
“He shot me! He fucking shot me!”
Bella winced and ran her fingers through his hair.
“I’m so sorry, Carl…”
The boy shook his head and gritted his teeth. Bella swallowed back as he had tears coming from his left eye. She wiped them away and he knocked her hand out of the way.
“Why didn’t you kill me?! I could’ve turned into one of them!”
“But you didn’t and you won’t. You’re gonna be just fine.”
“A good chunk of my face is missing and my eye is gone. You call that fine?”
“As a matter of fact, yes… Considering the alternative.”
Carl grabbed her by the vest.
“He killed him! It wasn’t the coma that killed dad, but Shane! He admitted it just before the gun went off!”
“Jesus…” Bella whispered.
The boy froze however and cleared his throat. Negan chuckled and patted the boy on the leg.
“See, I knew it. I bet he’s feeling a lot better now. Hell boy, you might as well give them a good motorboat.”
“Shut it…” Bella hissed.
Carl blushed and lowered his hands.
“He says he is but he’s still looking. Wipe that drool from your chin, boy. That’s gotta be god damn embarrassing. This one’s off limits but I’m sure we can find you a good lay back in DC.”
“DC?” Bella questioned.
“I talk about getting the boy laid and you question where it is we’re going? I’m beginning to like you more and more. Fuck, I bet you’re an animal in the sack. Can’t wait to find out.”
“Not happening… Like ever!”
“We’ll just see about that… I can be very convincing…” he said with an egotistical grin.
“Rape is not the same as being convincing.”
She gasped back as he slammed on the brakes. The guy behind him almost slammed into them.
She held Carl in order to keep him from rolling out of her lap. Negan turned to her with a curled lip.
“I might be a lot of things, sweetheart. But a motherfucking rapist is not one of them. I detest such scum and have been known to make such men choke on their own dicks! If we end up fucking, it’s because you WANT IT! And believe me you will… They always do.”
“Then you’ll be sorely disappointed.”
“You’ll be eating those words when you’re crawling into my bed and dry humping my god damn leg like a bitch in heat.”
“Such the charmer!”
“Quit staring you little bastard or you’ll go blind! Fuck, you’re halfway there already!”
Carl quickly turned his head and his face was flushed over.
“That’s if you play with it…” Bella witted.
“Haha! Now we’re talking!” he started the truck back up.
“If the boy wasn’t here I’d rub one out. Hell, I’m so hard I could wrap barbed wire around my cock and name it Lucille two!”
“Don’t need to use much barbed wire, huh?” Bella scoffed, knocking him off his game.
“How would your dick feel about that? Being named after a chick? Are you trying to admit he’s a bit of a pussy?”
Carl managed to laugh even through the sheer amount of hell he was in. Bella smiled and cut him a wink. She knew Negan would give him hell for it; so she hid the fact that she was holding his hand in order to give Carl some sort of reassurance. She wasn’t about to let anything happen to him.
