At some point after the outbreak, Nick's mother became a member of William Carver's community at Howe's Hardware, along with Nick, Pete, Luke, Rebecca, Alvin, Carlos, Sarah, and Reggie. Although the camp initially served as a safe haven for Nick's Mother and her friends, Carver's leadership grew harsher and more tyrannical over time. Carver also clashed with Luke, who had different ideas about how the community needed to be run. When tensions continued to rise, Nick and some other members of the camp hatched a plan to escape. With the help of Reggie, they managed to make it out, though they left Reggie behind when he fell, causing him to be recaptured.
Following their escape, the group gathered at Parker's Run, a Civil War site, before moving on. Eventually, they stumbled upon a cabin, which they decided to use as their temporary home until they could be sure Carver was not looking for them. One day, the group found a female survivor who had been bitten and attempted to treat her injury, believing they could control the infection. Despite their efforts, the survivor turned and attacked Nick's mother, who was later shot by Nick to prevent reanimation. Her death led Nick into a deep depression and set a seed for mistrust to every other survivor outside of his group.
