The Walking Dead: Noah’s Story
Part 5
by
Jay Mills

Inside the C.D.C./Front Lobby
[The scene is still the same as it was before the end of Part 4. Noah is still holding his gun in Jenner’s face, and Jenner looks shocked and confused. The rest of the group is also shocked and confused]
Noah
*Said through clenched teeth* You... you did this. This is all your fault.
Jenner
*He realizes that Noah remembers him, but is confused as to why he is behaving this way* Noah please just let me--
Noah
SHUT UP!
Rick
Noah, what is going on? How do you know this man?
Noah
*Said in rage* He’s the one who started all this, it’s because of him I’m immune and it’s probably his fault that all of this is happening! *The group is in shock, they don’t know what to say*
Laura
Noah, that’s enough, let him go! *She breaks free from Shane and runs to Noah. He is still in a frenzy, but once she touches him, he turns around and sees that she’s worried for him. He snaps out of his rage and gets off of Jenner and walks away. Laura helps Jenner off the floor*
Rick
So your the man that was in charge of the experiments they did on Noah and those other people?
Jenner
*Said in a pained voice* Yes. I’m Jenner, Dr. Edwin Jenner. I’m guessing you already know Laura? *Rick nods his head*
T-Dog
Wait, Noah I thought you said your mom was in charge?
Laura
Not directly in charge, me and Edwin here were both leading the project at the time. I handled the actual virus modification while Edwin here took care of administering it through different treatment--
Daryl
*Pops up* In english please!
Jenner
She remade it, I made it to where it could be compatible with the human body, that better? *Daryl smirks*
Dale
So, is their anyone else here?
Laura
*Looks down* No... we’re all thats left. Everyone else died or...
Jenner
They opted out of waiting for help, let’s just say that. *This makes the group react with worry. Hearing this makes them feel like there’s no hope left* But you are all welcome to stay here, provided you comply to a blood test.
Noah
*Steps up* I don’t think so, “Dr.”.
Laura
Noah, please. Edwin here isn’t going to hurt you.
Noah
You mean more then he already has? *Walks over to Jenner, the group readies themselves for another fight* The last time I let you guys stick something in me I ended writing in pain on the floor.
Jenner
Noah, please I not going to--
Noah
*Gets angry* You don’t have the right to talk to me after what you’ve done to me. *Gets up close, causing Jenner to back up some* Give me one good reason why I should trust you.
Jenner
Because right now, like it or not, you have no choice. I’m not asking you to trust me, I’m asking you to cooperate okay?
Noah
*Stares at Jonah for a second, and then backs off* We’ll see.
Jenner
So, besides Noah, I’m still gonna need a blood test from the rest of you.
Rick
*Looks at everyone and they all nod* Okay.
C.D.C. Basement Control Center
[The group reaches the basement, they all passed the test, and are shown around. They are excited to see that the place has beds, showers and food. Everyone but Noah, shows signs of happiness and hope]
Jenner
Please make yourselves at home, but please try not to waste electricity. We lose that and we’re finished. *Looks around to see the excitement everyone has* I bet your all hungry, huh? *Everyone smiles, they haven’t had any good food in a long time* Laura, why don’t you help me get some food ready? *Laura nods and they walk off and the group follows, except for Noah, Carl see’s that Noah isn’t coming and rushes back*
Carl
You coming Noah?
Noah
*Looks down at Carl, he tries to hide his anger and smiles* Yeah, sure I’m right behind you. *He follows Carl off with the others*
C.D.C. Basement Control Center/ Dining Room
[Everyone is enjoying themselves, eating and drinking. They are all smiling and happy. Noah, on the other hand is sitting Next to Jenner (unwillingly since it was the only seat left). He hasn’t stopped staring back at him every few minutes]
Jaqui
I never thought that I was gonna get to eat like this ever again.
Carol
Me neither, you like it Sophia?
Sophia
Yeah, it’s really good.
Rick
*Raises his glass to Jenner* Thank you Ed, if you hadn’t let us in we’d probably be dead now *Jenner raises his glass but doesn’t look as happy as Rick does*
Noah
I wouldn’t thank him just yet.
Laura
*In a stern mother voice* Noah. *Noah just shrugs*
Shane
So, when are you gonna tell us how the hell this all happened?
Laura
*Looks at Jenner who looks ashamed to talk* We’re not really sure, *Scene fades to show a flashback of Laura walking down a hall in the C.D.C., before the outbreak started* I was on my way to look at some new disease samples when the alarms started going off, they said they were evacuating the building due to some sort of outbreak that was going on in the city. It wasn’t long before I was pushed out of the way by everyone. They all were trying to make they’re way outside, When the hallway cleared out I made a run for it too. *We see all of this happen in the flashback, and then we see Laura run down the hallway and turn a corner, and then we see a walker grab at her* That’s when I ran into one of those things. I was in shock, I didn’t know what to think...it was like the past had come back to kill me. That’s when Edwin found me and saved my life. *The flashback fades back out to present time* When we got here the majority of the staff had been killed when they got out before the building locked down, only a few of the head researchers made it here.
Jenner
We knew that we were stuck, but we at least we were stuck in a place with ample supplies of food and water. However, it didn’t take long before people started giving up hope and... well, like I said they opted out.
Lori
That’s terrible.
Glenn
Too bad that cure you guy’s made didn’t work. *Noah gives Glenn a look* Sorry.
Jenner
That cure didn’t work, and neither did the rest.
Noah
*Shocked* What?
Laura
During the outbreak, a few of those Walkers made it inside. One of them... attacked Jenner’s wife, Candace.
Jenner
Before she died, she told me she wanted me and Laura to use her body to research a cure.
Dale
And?
Laura
We tried everything, but no matter what the virus wasn’t even phased.
Jenner
Two hours went by... that’s when she woke back up and... *Looks down* I had to *His eyes start to water*. Noah, there’s something you should know. *Laura looks shocked*
Laura
Edwin, don’t.
Jenner
He’ll find sooner or later. *Laura looks away, ashamed and deeply saddened, Noah just looks confused* It wasn’t Candace’s blood we were using as the basis for our cure. It was TS-19’s blood that we used... it was your blood.
Noah
What!?
Jenner
We took blood samples from you before you left with your mother. When the project was terminated, a new one was created, one to find out what was in your blood and D.N.A that made your body compatible with the cure we created, and isolate so we could use that to make a new cure. It seemed as if you were this diseases “Typhoid Mary”. *Everyone is in shock to hear this*
Noah
So your saying that this whole thing is my fault!?
Laura
No, Noah! None of this is your fault. We don’t know how this all happened but we know for sure that it wasn’t caused by us.
Shane
So what? If it wasn’t you guys that did this then who did?
Jenner
We don’t know, but whatever it was it’s very similar. We had to destroy all the samples we had not long ago though, due to my clumsiness.
Noah
Why would you tell me all that if it had nothing to do with what’s going on?
Jenner
To gain your trust, I figured that if I told you the truth then maybe you would trust me.
Noah
*Noah is shocked, he can’t believe that Jenner would do all that just to gain his trust. He decides that maybe he jumped the gun a little with Jenner, and that maybe he should try to be more understanding* Well, you’ve earned a little bit more than you had.
Jenner
*Chuckles* Well that’s better than when I had none a second ago. *They share a laugh, the group see’s that the tension has been removed and that they can really relax now*
Noah
And thanks Ed, if you hadn’t had let us in here, we’d probably be dead.
Laura
Well, I had to talk him into it, but I was gonna let you in regardless. *Ali, Laura and Noah share a smile*
Jenner
Don’t worry about it. *He looks down with a solemn look* It’s all gonna be okay.
C.D.C. Rec. Room and Library
[Lori goes into the rec. room to see that Noah, Ali, and Carol are watching Carl and Sophia play a game of checkers. They are all smiling and having fun. Lori joins in on the fun, and they all enjoy feeling “normal” for the first time in a long time. Carl and Sophia start to yawn]
Carol
I think that’s enough fun for now you two. *They nod* come on kids, lets go to bed. *They get up and go with Carol* Lori, Ali, Noah you coming?
Lori
No, I think I’m gonna look around the library a bit.
Noah
That sounds good to me too, I could use a good book to put me too sleep.
Ali
I’m coming Carol, don’t stay up all night you two.
Noah
*Grins* Mom’s back you know. *They share a laugh*
[Noah and Lori walk to the Library and begin thumbing through books]
Lori
Am I the only NOT surprised that most of these books are about science.
Noah
Why do you think I said “a book to put me to sleep” *They share a smile* *He gets up, he’s glad to see Lori happy, but then he remembers the conversation he overheard. He doesn’t think he can keep it a secret anymore* Lori?
Lori
Yeah, Noah?
Noah
Can I ask you something?
Lori
Sure, what’s up? *She looks at Noah and see’s that he looks uncomfortable* What’s wrong?
Noah
*He decides that now’s the time* While we were back at the camp, before me and Ed got in a fight, I was going to check on you when you came down to the quarry. *She doesn’t understand* But when I made over to where you were, you were talking... with Shane. *She then realizes what he means and is speechless* Yeah, I heard everything.
Lori
*She doesn’t know what to say, she’s ashamed that he found out the way he did* Noah, I--I don’t know what to say I-
Noah
It’s okay Lori, I’m not angry at you. I was angry at Shane, though. *Lori then looks angry* Don’t get mad at him Lori, I told him I wasn’t gonna say anything, but only if he promised to tell Rick the truth.
Lori
*Pissed off* And you honestly think that he will?
Noah
*Content* I don’t know, but I know that he’s not had many good things in his life Lori. *Lori is taken back by this* Save for me. I just can’t hate him Lori, it’s not in me you know?
Lori
*Understands what Noah’s saying, she and Rick always knew that Noah and Shane had a special connection* I know Noah, but still--
Shane
*Said drunk* Mind if I interrupt?
Noah
*Noah and Lori look at the doorway to see Shane, he has a whisky bottle in his hand and he is obviously drink* Shane! Are you drunk?
Shane
Maybe. *Walks forward* Anyway, I needed to talk to you Lori...alone.
Lori
Shane, Noah told me he overheard us at the camp. *Shane looks at Noah with an upset look* So what ever you need to say to me you can say in front of him too.
Shane
Very well, but I’m gonna talk and you are just gonna listen *Lori crosses her arms in frustration, Noah walks forward to shane*
Noah
*Grabs the bottle* I don’t think you need anymore of that, Shane. *Shane just rolls his eyes*
Shane
Whatever.
Lori
You know what, forget it. I don’t wanna hear anything more from you. *Walks to the door*
Shane
*Grabs at Lori’s arm and stops her, he then turns and shuts the door. Noah gets close in case things get really bad* Lori please just listen to me, don’t talk just listen please? *Lori is reluctant, but looks over to Noah and see’s he’s there for her. So she nods her head* *Said all in a drunk voice* How can you just talk to me like you have been, treating me like I’m the worst person you’ve ever met? I told you that I checked on Rick every way I knew how, I checked for a heart beat I... I didn’t know what to do and then I thought about you and-and Carl. *He leans in close to Lori* You know it was the thought keeping you safe that...gave me hope to-to do what I’ve done.
Noah
*Shane then tries to kiss Lori, grabbing onto her and pulling her in close, but she resists. Noah gets behind Shane and starts pulling at him* That’s enough Shane, stop! *Shane is still in a bit of a drunken daze that he simply doesn’t hear Noah. Lori then scratches Shane in his face and throat. Shane is taken back by this, Noah rushes over to Shane* Shane!
[Shane is ashamed of what he just tried to do. He looks at Lori, who looks sad and appalled, and he runs out of the room]
Noah
Shane, wait! *He runs after Shane. Lori is still in shock but then she starts to cry* *Noah follows Shane who is back in his room, with his head in his hands, he seems to be crying a little. Noah is saddened by this, he has never seen Shane cry in his whole life. He walks over to Shane* Let me see. *Shane turns his head away* Shane let me see. *Shane just stays silent for a moment, but then he raises his head to Noah, and Noah sees that, although it’s not really bad, Lori did scratch him pretty good* Hold on. *He walks over to the sink, he takes one of the wash cloths near the sink and wets it. He walks back to Shane’s bed, and sits next to him* Hold still, this may sting a little. *Shane whence’s a little* Sorry.
Shane
Why? *Noah looks at Shane* Why are you doing this? Helping me, taking care of me when all I’ve seem to do for you is disappoint and hurt you?
Noah
*Noah has a very solemn but content look on his face, he’s scared to say what he feels, but realizes that he needs to* I’ve told you several times already Shane, *Wipes at Shane’s wounds* I love you as if you were my real father. *Finally say’s it* And you were around a lot more than he was. *Shane is shocked by this* You know how his job was always calling him away, even when me and Ali had something important going on. He never made it to any of mine or Ali’s plays, he’s been to only a handful of our birthday parties... he didn’t even make it to my graduation. *Shane looks sad, he didn’t Noah felt that way* But you know who did make it to my plays, he did make it to every single one of my birthdays, and who was in the front row during my graduation ceremony... it was you Shane, you were always there for me. *Shane’s eyes start to water up a little, seeing this makes Noah start crying* I’ll always love my father, but like you said before Shane, “If you had to pick a son it would be me”? *Shane nods* Well... if I had to pick a father... it would be you.
Shane
*Hearing this causes Shane to break down in tears. He never knew that Noah had felt this way, he knew he thought of him as a father, but not as much so as he real one. He leans over and takes Noah in his arms, who is also crying* I’m sorry Noah. I’m sorry for everything.
Noah
*Noah is crying to, but more so tears of relief, finally telling Shane how he felt. He will always love his father, he knew he hated missing everything and was always sorry that he never made it to anything. But Shane has been there through everything for Noah; the good, the bad, and the worse. Noah will always love Shane like a father...even through everything that’s happened* I know, Shane... I know.
[We then see a brief flashback of Shane sitting in his house watching T.V in a white shirt, and a pair of pajama pants. Then a younger Noah(About 11) comes running through the room in Pajama’s. He is happy and excited]
Younger Noah
Come on Shane, you promised me you’d tell me some of your police stories before I went to bed!
Shane
*Smiling* Okay Noah, I’m coming *Noah runs off happy. Shane gets up and follows Noah to Shane’s spare room; The room Noah usually stayed in whenever he slept over. When Shane walks in the room, he sees Noah is already underneath the covers, ready to listen. Shane walks over and sits on the side of the bed. Theres no audio, but we see scenes fades in and out of Shane telling Noah some of his cop stories. Then we cut to where Noah is about to fall asleep* Okay Noah, I think that’s enough for now. *He leans over and kisses Noah on the forehead* Goodnight.
Younger Noah
*Before Shane can get up, Noah grabs at his hand* No, don’t go please. *Shane looks back at Noah* Can you stay please, at least until I fall asleep? Daddy can never stay and sleep with me because he has to leave for work at night, please Shane?
Shane
*He smiles, he can’t help but say yes to Noah* Sure, Noah...scoot over. *Noah smiles and scoots over, Shane pulls the covers up and pulls Noah in close to him, like a child would cling to their parent when they slept with each other at night* Just don’t ask me to sing.
Younger Noah
Okay. *Shane laughs* goodnight Shane, I love you*Starts to fall asleep* sometimes I wish you were my... daddy.
Shane
*Shane is shocked of what Noah just said, he didn’t know what to say. He smiles though, and his eyes water a little* I love you too Noah, always will. *He leans his head back and falls asleep*
[We angle to where we are looking directly above them so that we see both of them sleeping in the bed. The flash back fades in the same angle so that we now see that Noah and Shane (present day) are just like they were in the flashback. Noah has fallen asleep on Shane’s chest and has his arms wrapped around him like he did in the flashback. Shane has his armed wrapped around Noah where its going behind his shoulders, and the other hand is laying on his stomach. They are lying like they did in the flashback; like a young child clinging to his father while they were asleep. They are peacefully asleep, like everything that has been happening is far away, and the world is at peace once more]
C.D.C. Basement Control Center/Cafeteria: The Next Day
[The group has gathered in the Cafeteria to eat breakfast. Shane and Noah walk in together, Shane’s face still looks a little cut up, but he seems to be fine. Rick approaches]
Rick
Shane, what happened to your face?
Noah
*Thinks quickly* I think he just had a bad dream, he woke me up actually. I guess he just scratched himself while he was asleep.
Shane
*Looks over at Lori, who looks over and looks away in shame and anger* Yeah, I’ll be fine don’t worry.
Rick
*Feels like he’s missing something, but let’s it go* That’ a little strange.
Shane
*Said in a flat, sad tone* Yeah, not like me at all, huh? *Looks over to Noah and they walk on. Noah goes over and sits with Ali and Jonah, and Shane goes and sits with T-Dog and Daryl.
Jonah
*Looks over and see’s Jenner and Laura approach* I’ll be right back you two. *They nod and go back to talking. He approaches Jenner and Laura* Dr. Jenner? I was wondering if I could talk to you.
Jenner
Sure.
Jonah
*Looks over at Laura* Preferably alone. *Laura looks confused and looks to Jenner, but he just smiles and nods. Laura walks on and joins with her kids. They walk to the outer hallway* It’s been a while Eddy.
Jenner
I was beginning to think you didn’t recognize me, Jonah.
Jonah
Hard to forget your college roommate. I’m sorry about Candace by the way.
Jenner
*Nods his head* Thanks, Jonah... I appreciate it. I was just about to take everyone to the Control Center, there’s something there that you all should see.
Jonah
What?
Jenner
*Pause* Answers.
C.D.C. Control Center
[The group enters the Control Center, there are giant monitors as well as small computers in rows throughout the room]
Ali
What is this place?
Jenner
The Control Center, this is where control of the entire building is, as well as where all of our research data is monitored and archived by Vi.
Rick
Who’s Vi?
Jenner
*Turns to the monitors* Vi?
Vi
*A voice then is heard out of nowhere* Yes, Doctor Jenner?
Jonah
*The entire group is shocked, they can’t believe that the computer can talk* You have an A.I. built into the system?
Laura
Yes, she has been a huge help in keep this place running. *Walks forward looking at the screens* Originally, she was just used to relay messages and record the data we collected, but lately she has become the only thing keeping us up to date with the outside worlds events.
Vi
I am always happy to be of assistance Doctor.
Jenner
Remember last night when we told you about my wife, Candace and her becoming TS-20? *The group nods* Well, this is what we found. Vi, show the brain images of TS-20.
Vi
Yes, Doctor Jenner.
Jonah
*The image is shown. The virus spreads throughout the brain until it goes completely dark* That can’t be. *Jenner and Laura look over to Jonah, who walks over to where they are, looking up at the monitor* No virus, engineered or other wise, can possibly spread that fast.
Laura
That’s what we thought too, until we saw this.
Jenner
That’s not the worst part...*The group is confused* Vi, show the image of reanimation.
Vi
Yes Doctor Jenner.
Lori
*The group then sees the image showing the virus restarting the brain, and see’s the body start to move* Your saying that it kills the person and then brings them back to life?
Laura
Not the entire brain, Lori.
Jenner
Just the brainstem, whoever the person was before...is gone. *The group is stunned to see how this virus works, they are also now somewhat more afraid of this infection*
Daryl
This still doesn’t explain why this cure you made only worked on one person.
Jenner
*Puts his head down in shame* I wish I knew, and before you ask we don’t know what caused this outbreak either.
Laura
We also lost contact with our other facilities, as far as we know... we’re the only facility with living staff left.
Dale
*Looks over and see’s that a monitor is displaying a timer counting down* Uh, Ed, Laura? What does that clock over there mean?
Laura
*Looks over and see’s it. She then goes into shock* Edwin, is that...what I think it is?
Jenner
*Sighs* Yes.
Rick
Wait, what does that mean? *Jenner doesn’t respond* Jenner!?
Jenner
When the timer reaches zero the facilities generators in the basement will run out of fuel.
Rick
Shane, Glenn, T-Dog, come with me.
Glenn
Where are we going?
Rick
To check on those generators, maybe there’s something we can do to fix them. *Rick and the guys walk out*
Laura
*Walks over to Noah* How are you feeling Noah?
Noah
I’m fine Mom, how about you?
Laura
*Scared about what she thinks is about to happen, but she plays it off* I’m okay honey. *Checks his arm that was bitten the other day* Did you have another attack after your last incident?
Noah
I don’t think so. Is that a bad thing?
Laura
Actually, no it’s good. It means that your body is becoming more and more resistant to the infection. I guess that what I did *her eyes start watering* wasn’t all bad.
Noah
*Realizes she blames herself for what he’s going through* Mom, listen to me: There’s no way you could have known what was going to happen.
Laura
*Wipes away her eyes* I know, I know. I still can’t help but feel responsible. *Looks at Noah, and see’s he looks worried for her* But at least I still have you and Ali here.
Ali
*Joins the conversation* What about daddy? Do you have any idea where he is?
Laura
*Looks away* I don’t know. I was able to get a hold of him before the lines went down, but the only thing he told me was that *Her eyes start watering again, showing that she fears the worst* He loved me, and that he loved you two. And that what ever happens... to stay together. I tried to ask him where he was, or how he was doing if-- if there was anything I could do, but I lost him before I could say anything. I don’t know maybe he’s okay, maybe he got out before things got bad but *She starts breaking down* I don’t know... I don’t know. *She falls to the ground. Her husband and children are the world to her, the thought of losing any of them just tears her apart* Oh God please let Jerry be okay.
[Noah and Ali join her on the floor, holding on to her in comfort. They to start to cry a little too. They are all afraid that he didn’t make it, but they are trying to hope for the best... something that is becoming more and more impossible these days. We then fade to Jenner in his office, looking at the picture of Candace, begging her to understand. We then cut to where Rick and his group make it back to the Control Room]
Dale
Well?
Rick
We don’t know, but the air just went out.
Lori
What!?
Jaqui
Why would the air go off?
Jonah
*Turns to Jenner* Eddy, what’s going on? *Jenner doesn’t respond*
Rick
*Starting to become frustrated* Vi? What’s going on? What does that timer mean?
Vi
The timer is the amount of time until total facility decontamination is initiated.
Laura
What!? But that would mean *Realizes what’s going on* No.
Ali
What?
Laura
This facility is built to purge itself so that all contaminants in the facility are destroyed.
Carol
What do you mean “purge”?
Jonah
*Shocked* No, you don’t mean--
Vi
Once the timer reaches zero, this facility will self-destruct to ensure that any chances of possible contamination is destroyed.
Laura
*The entire group goes into an uproar, they are in complete shock and terror* Why didn’t you tell me that this started?
Jenner
*Said in a flat tone* Because I knew you’d want to leave... and I would be alone.
Laura
What do you--
Jenner
Don’t you see, it doesn’t matter what we do we’re gonna die eventually. Why not let it be a peaceful death.
Ali
No, I’m not staying here! *She runs to the door, but before she can open it Jenner pushes a button and all the doors lock shut. She tries to open it but the door doesn’t even budge* It’s locked, it won’t open. *Other members of the group run to the doors, and try to get them to open, but to no avail*
Jonah
Eddy open the doors!
Jenner
Why do you want to fight the inevitable . Wouldn’t you rather die peacefully then in pain?
T-Dog
I’d rather not die at all.
Rick
Ed please open the door.
Jenner
Why? Didn’t you just tell me last night that you knew that soon everyone you loved would be dead?
Rick
You KNOW that’s not what I meant.
Shane
*Approaches Jenner and puts his shotgun barrel in his face* OPEN THE DAMN DOOR RIGHT NOW!
Noah
*Rushes over* Shane, stop don’t do something your gonna regret.
Shane
If we DON’T do something then we’re all gonna be dead in twenty-five minutes.
RIck
*Gets Shane away from Jenner* Why, why are you doing this. Why not just open the doors and come with us?
Jenner
*Stands up in retaliation* Because I promised Candace! *Everyone stops and looks at Jenner* I promised her that I would keep going as long as I could. That woman was my life! Not only was she one of finest scientists in this entire world, she’s also the only woman I’ve ever loved. When ever people looked at her they saw a smart, beautiful talented woman. Me? They just saw Edwin Jenner.
Laura
*Approaches Jenner slowly. Rick tries to stop her but she brushes him off. She walks over and looks Jenner in the face* What do you think Candace would say about what your doing right now. You may have accepted death, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us have to. You know as much as I do that this isn’t what Candace would wan’t you to do.
Lori
*Walks over to Laura and Jenner* Edwin, please. *Tears are forming in her eyes* Please, let us have our chance to live, let us at least try to make it through this. *looks back to Carl, who is standing with Sophia* Please, they don’t deserve this.
Jenner
*A long pause occurs, and then he turns around and presses a button. A loud mechanical click is hear and the doors unlock* Go, but know that the lockdown upstairs is something I can’t override. Your gonna have to figure out another way to get out.
Rick
*Walks over and shakes Jenner’s hand* Thank you, we really appreciate this.
Jenner
Soon the day will come when you wished that you stayed. *He pulls Rick in close and whispers something in his ear. A look of shock crosses Ricks face*
Shane
Rick what’s wrong?
Rick
Nothing... come on we gotta go.
Noah
*See’s that Jaqui isn’t leaving with them* Jaqui come on we gotta go.
Jaqui
*She looks down and then back up to Noah* I’m not going. *T-Dog hear’s this and rushes over*
T-Dog
What do you mean your not going, of course your going.
Jaqui
No I’m not. I’m not ending up like Amy and Jim. If I’m gonna die it’s gonna be how I want.
Andrea
*Goes over and stands next to Jaqui* Me too.
Ali
Andrea you can’t be serious!?
Dale
*Walks over to Andrea* You guy’s go on. I’ll handle this. *They look confused but Ali runs on with her mom*
T-Dog
Jaqui please, we’re gonna make it through this you just have to--
Jaqui
I’ve made my decision Theodore... don’t let it effect yours. Now go! *He hesitates but he runs off. Jaqui looks at Noah who looks angry and is starting to cry* Sweetie look at me. I know we’ve had some good times, but I’m ready to move on. You have your mother and sister to worry about. *He shakes his head, he’s tired of losing people and he doesn’t want to accept it. She see’s this and pulls him in* I know it sucks Noah, but it’s my decision not yours. *She kisses him on the head* I’m gonna miss you too baby. *He finally respects her decision to move on to a better place, and he turns to leave*
Noah
*He turns and looks back and smiles* Jaqui? *She looks at him* Will you tell Amy I miss her?
Jaqui
*She smiles and tears run down her face* Sure thing baby. *He smiles and runs off. Hearing this catches Andrea’s attention, and she starts crying too*
C.D.C. Front Lobby
[Noah reaches the front lobby to see that the group is stuck inside like Jenner said. That’s when Carol pulls out the grenade and hands it to Rick]
Carol
I found this in your cloths when I washed them back at the camp. Think it could help?
Rick
*Pulls the pick* Let’s find out! *He throws it at the doors* Everybody down! *Everyone runs for cover, and the grenade explodes. The turn and see that the grenade blew a hole in the wall. They are at first excited... but then they see the herd of walkers has grown since last time* Oh no.
T-Dog
What now?
Glenn
You wouldn’t happen to have any more of those would you?
Lori
There’s no way we can all make it through there.
Jonah
We need something to distract them, something that can keep them occupied while we make a brake for the cars.
Shane
What do we have that could distract that many Walkers without getting ourselves killed.
Noah
*There is chatter among the group, but Noah stands silent in thought. He realizes what he needs to do, and that it’s the only way to make sure everyone can make it out alive* There is something we can use.
Rick
*Everyone looks back at Noah, Rick breaks through the group* What, Noah?
Noah
*He looks down. Then he pulls out his pistols and cocks them* Me.
Shane
What!?!
Ali
Noah, no.
Laura
You can’t be serious.
Daryl
Are you suggesting we let you get torn apart, just so we don’t?
Noah
*Walks past the group with a blank face* You have any better ideas?
Shane
*Grabs Noah’s arm* How about we all make it out of here alive.
Noah
You know as well as I do that if we all run out there... some of us aren’t going to make it. If I get their attention long enough for you all to make it to the cars, then I’ll run and catch up.
Laura
*Runs over* Noah *Starts crying* Baby, please don’t do this.
Ali
*On the verge of tears* Noah please.
Noah
*He pulls them both in and hugs them* Goodbye. *He rushes over to Rick* Take care of everyone. *Tries to say something but he rushes over to Shane and hugs him* Goodbye Shane, I’m sorry.
Shane
*Tries to stop Noah* Noah please don’t--
Noah
*Runs off to the herd outside* Go, Now! *Rushes outside and grabs the herds attention* COME ON YOU BASTARDS! I’M RIGHT HERE, YOU WANNA FIGHT WELL HERE I AM!!!
[The herd all turn their attention to Noah, and they forget about the rest of the group. He starts picking off Walker by Walker. The group starts to file out the hole, they all make a brake for the R.V.. Noah looks back to see they are making it safely to the R.V., but when he turns back around he is bitten in the arm by a Walker. He is taken back by this, but he keeps shooting at the Walkers. It’s not long before another Walker bites him in the leg. This causes Noah to topple over. He doesn’t stop shooting. He drags himself away from the herd, but a Walker gets on top of him and starts to bite at him. Noah thinks that this is the end, and that he is sorry that he won’t get to keep his promise to Jim, Amy, and Jaqui. Then all of a sudden, The Walkers head explodes. Noah looks up and sees that Shane came back for him]
Shane
*Picks Noah up* I told you... I’m not gonna let you get yourself killed.
Noah
*Smiles, but then he see’s a Walker approach Shane from behind* Shane look out!
[Shane doesn’t get to it in time, but then the Walkers head explodes as well. They look back to the facility and see that Dale was able to convince Andrea to leave. Dale managed to get a shot at the Walker and killed it before it could bite Shane]
Dale
Nice shot, if I say so myself.
Andrea
*Yells to Shane and Noah* Come on, we’ve only got ten minutes left!
[Shane carries Noah off and Dale and Andrea catch up with them as they all run to the R.V.. When they get inside, Laura and Ali Get Noah and take him to the back bed. Shane Looks and see’s Rick is ready to drive away]
Shane
Rick, we’re ready go!
[Suddenly, The C.D.C. building explodes in a ball of fire. The herd outside the building is completely engulfed by the flames. Rick is in shock but he starts the engine and they drive off. Shane goes to the back and see’s that Lori and Ali are already looking at Noah’s wounds. Shane walks over and sits next to Noah]
Shane
*Smiles* Now what did I say about running off and getting yourself hurt?
Noah
*Chuckles* I guess your starting to rub off on me.
Shane
*He pats Noah on his shoulder* For what it’s worth... you really did an amazing thing back there. Your a amazing kid Noah.
Noah
*Laughs* Well, it doesn’t hurt hearing it.
Shane
So you think your gonna be okay for now?
Noah
*He looks around and see’s that everyone is here, except for Jaqui and Jenner, but he respects their decision. He feels like everything is right for the first time in a long time. He looks at Shane and smiles* Yeah, I think I’m gonna be fine... for now.
[Shane smiles, he gets up and goes back to the others. Laura and Ali both smile too. They finish bandaging Noah up and they go as well. Laura kisses Noah on the forehead and smiles. He looks out the window and looks at the stars. He smiles, closes his eyes and falls asleep]
