The Walking Dead: Noah’s Story
Part 6

Jay Mills

Rooftop Overlooking Atlanta
[Rick overlooks the city of Atlanta and starts to talk into the walkie talkie]
Rick
I’m guessing you still can’t hear me Morgan, but I gotta keep hope in something right? Seem’s the only thing that anything is based off of anymore is chance. I’m trying to do the right thing, keep people alive and protected... I tried Morgan...I tried. *We then see flashes of the group preparing for their trip* We’re losing people, more and more day by day. The last one we lost... she made the choice, and I can’t say I don’t understand it. *We then see a flashback of Jacqui saying goodbye to T-Dog and Noah* She lost the hope for a better future. And the C.D.C. didn’t give us nothing but more troubles, but at least it reunited a mother with her lost children, Noah and Ali found a light in this dark world, one that I hope they don’t lose. *We then see a flashback of Noah, Ali, and Laura’s first reunion at the C.D.C.*. We also met the man that was the reason Noah’s immune to whatever’s going on... and of course neither him or Laura were able to figure out how and make a new cure, but that’s not what bothers me... what bothers me is what he said before I left. *Hesitates* He told me that... that *Breaks off from the conversation* It doesn’t matter right now, what matters is that we’re leaving Atlanta. There’s nothing left here but the Walker’s. We’ve decided to try Shane’s idea and head for Fort Benning. *We then cut to where we see the group preparing for their trip. Noah walks up to Ali and Laura who are carrying in supplies into the R.V. Everyone else is preparing in other ways] We’ve gotta long road ahead of us, and I’m worried about what is waiting for us at the end of it. But it can’t be any worse then what we’ve already been through can it? *Daryl and T-Dog carry over gas to the other cars and fill them up* We got 125 miles to travel, and I’m trying as hard as I can to keep faith that we’ll all make it. I can’t lose faith, if I do then how can I expect anyone else to? That’s why I’m glad Noah’s here now. He’s always been a strong-willed boy. *We cut to seeing Noah, who is walking around asking people if they need help, even though he is still injured from the last fight* He’s someone that I know can handle even the most violent people, either from talking them down or *chuckles a little* taking them down. I’m more worried about Ali though,*We cut to Ali, she’s helping her mother and Andrea with putting supplies in all of the vehicles* the poor girl’s not a fighter, but I made a promise to Jerry, and I will keep her and Noah safe. With me and Shane protecting them we won’t lose them... we can’t. *Looks away with his eyes watering* Everyone we have left, my family, there’s just so few of us now. *We then cut to where Shane is looking at Lori and Carl getting ready to leave. Noah looks over to Shane and see’s this, he know’s what he’s thinking about. He walks over to him and pats him on the arm. Noah smiles, and this causes Shane to look at him and smile too. But then Rick goes over to Lori and they share a kiss. This causes Shane’s demeanor to change suddenly back to what it was, Noah see’s this and looks sad. Rick then looks back at them, Shane quickly looks happy and Noah plays along*
Dale
*Looks over to Shane and Noah* Come on you two *They look over to Dale*, time to go. *They nod and head inside the R.V.*
Rick
Morgan... if you can hear this, please just be careful, you and Duane. Don’t get on the roads, and never stop. Just...*his eyes start to water* be safe.
Noah
*Comes up behind Rick* Rick? *Rick turns around and see’s Noah* *Said in a content voice* We gotta go.
Rick
*Nods his head, and Noah turns and leaves* This is Rick...signing off.
[We then see everyone getting into the cars. They all drive off. We then go to where we see the city of Atlanta, and then the cars driving out of the city.]
Road: Near Abandoned Highway
[The group has been driving for a good bit of time, now Lori is sitting in the passengers seat and Rick is driving the R.V.. Laura is talking with Jonah while their sitting at the booth seats in the R.V. Carl and Ali are playing a game of checkers, Ali is losing. Sophia is sitting next to Noah, her mother wanted her to ride with them in case something happened, while she drove with Glenn, T-Dog, and Jonah. Noah Is sitting on floor near the drivers seat, he got tired of laying down in the bed the whole time. He is watching Carl and Ali playing checkers, Shane is in the back checking his gun, and Dale is with him doing the same. Andrea is sitting in the back next to Shane, just watching them and she looks really depressed]
Lori
*Looks back and see’s Carl and Ali, she smiles* You know what this reminds me of Rick? *Rick raises his eyebrow in question* That trip we took to the Grand Canyon?
Rick
*Laughs* You mean the trip we tried to take to the Grand Canyon?
Carl
*Huffs* It’s not my fault I got sick.
Noah
*The group shares a laugh. He looks to Ali* Hey Ali? *She turns around* Remember that one time we went on vacation, and we got the wrong luggage?
Ali
*Laugh’s and cringes a little* Ew, don’t remind me.
Jonah
What?
Noah
Let’s just say that the luggage we got belonged to a “very loving” couple. *All the adults realize what he means* Yeah we learned about a lot of things that year. *Everyone shares a little laugh*
Carl
Why? What was in them?
Rick
*Turns around with a smile* I’ll tell you when your older. *Carl slumps over, he’s apparently heard this before*
Sophia
*Looks sad* I’ve never been on a vacation before.
Noah
*Looks at her and is sad, he can guess why she’s never been on a vacation. He pulls her in and she leans on his shoulder. He smiles, he has an idea to cheer her up* Well, then I’ll make you a promise Sophia; when this is all over you and your mom can come with all of us on trip. Rick’s family, my family, all of us can go. *Looks around and see’s that everyone is somewhat touched* I think we’ve earned a vacation.
Sophia
*Smiles and beams* Really? We could go?
Rick
*Turns around and looks at Sophia* Of course Sophia. We wouldn’t go without you or your mom...I promise.

[Hearing this makes Sophia smile. She leans her head on Noah’s shoulder and he puts his head on top of her, rubbing her shoulder. He isn’t gonna let the Walkers get her, no matter what. The group is happy that they were able to find time to think back on the good days before all of this happened. It gives them some hope that maybe one day things will be back to normal. It’s at this time that Andrea and Shane have their conversation about her gun and Amy]
Rick
*All of a sudden, when they reach the highway, Rick see’s all of the abandoned cars that are blocking they’re path* Oh no. *The group gets up and see’s this, and they are all distressed by this. Then all of a sudden, the front of the R.V. starts to smoke again, and they are forced to stop* No! Dammit!
[Everyone get’s out of the vehicle they were in and goes over to the R.V.. Dale opens the hood and see’s that the radiator hose has broke again.]
Dale
Well that’s just great.
Jonah
Again? I thought we fixed it the last time?
T-Dog
We did.
Glenn
Okay, so what do we do now?
Rick
*Thinks for a second, and then turns back to the others* Well, while we’re here we should look through the cars and see what we can find. *Looks over to Glenn and T-Dog* Glenn, T-Dog, you think you two can siphon gas out of some of these cars, Shane, Jonah*Looks over to Shane and Jonah and they look back* Go with them in case the Walkers show up.
Shane
Got it.
Jonah
Of course.
T-Dog
Yeah, no problem.
Glenn
We’ll do our best.
Rick
*Smiles and nods, and they proceed to do so* Alright.
Lori
*Steps forward* I’ll go and look through the cars, with luck maybe I’ll find something useful.
Carl
I’ll hep too. * Rick smiles and nods’, Lori puts her hand on Carls shoulder and smiles*
Carol
I’ll help you.*Looks over to Sophia* You wanna help too, Sophia? *She nods* Okay.
Rick
*Watches as everyone goes, he turn’s and looks at Andrea, she looks extremely depressed. She head’s back in the R.V. Noah starts to go after her, but Rick stops him* It’s okay Noah. She just needs time.
Noah
*Nods* I just don’t think it’s fair, Rick. I mean, Amy was all she had. I know I lost her too, but I still have Ali, Jonah, and my mother. She... she has no one now.
Rick
*He smiles, he always admired Noah for having a big heart* She has us. *Noah looks up* She may not really know it yet, but she’s not alone in this. When one of us suffers we all suffer. *Noah looks down and extremely sad, but Rick lifts his head back up* But you can’t blame every loss on yourself, Noah. None of this is your fault, you hear me? *Noah nods, but he still looks sad* *Rick smiles* It seems like only yesterday that you and Ali were running around in our backyard.*Noah smiles* Noah,*Noah looks up* I haven’t forgotten my promise... I’ll keep all of you safe, I promise.
Noah
*Smiles, he has always had a deep family bond to Rick and his family, and will always consider them as such* I know Rick, and I promise you the same thing, those things will have to go through me before they so much as breathe on Carl.
Rick
*Rick smiles, he is happy to see that Noah has grown to be a strong young man* Thanks, Noah.
Noah
No problem Rick.
Dale
*Rick looks on top of the R.V. and see’s that Dale is looking out on the horizon with his binoculars* We’re clear.
[At this time, while Glenn is trying to remove a radiator hose from a car, Shane notices a water supply truck. He manages to get the shutter open, and is amazed by all of the water the truck was carrying. Glenn looks over and is amazed as well. Shane then proceeds to open one of the jugs and pours it all over him. Glenn is grinning from ear to ear, finally something good is happening to them. Shane and him share a laugh and whoop of excitement. Dale is watching this and smiles a little too. He turns around and then notices something. He pulls his binoculars up and looks through them, and a look of shock crosses his face. Rick and Noah notice this and look out towards that direction. Rick looks through his scope and then he sees it; a walker, slowly moving up the road through the cars]
Noah
*He notices it too, but he isn’t sure if it’s a good idea to fire a gun in this big of an open space* What are you gonna do?
[Rick thinks for a second, but then he cocks his gun slowly and readies it to fire. Noah stands next to him, waiting to hear the shot ring out. Suddenly Rick sees another one... he lowers his scope and then see’s it, and so does Noah; a herd of Walkers is coming up the road. Dale see’s this too, and he is in shock]
Noah
*In complete terror* Rick?
Rick
Oh my God!*He and Noah duck behind a car. Rick looks over his shoulder and then nudges at Noah* Go! * They run back to the others. Dale proceeds to lay down on top of the R.V.. They make it to where Lori and Carol are* Lori *She whirls around* Under the cars, now! *She doesn’t waste time*
Noah
*Looks over to Sophia and Carl* Sophia! Carl! Get under the car, now! *They proceed to do so*
[Carol tries calling out to Sophia, but Lori covers her mouth and shushes her. They get underneath the car and hide. Noah looks over to Ali, Laura, and Jonah who are with Glenn and Shane getting water, and motions to Shane for them to hide. Shane then motions for Ali and Laura to get underneath the water truck, and He, Glenn, and Jonah get underneath the car Glenn was taking the radiator hose out of. Noah then gets underneath the car with Rick and they both get to where they are completely hidden. Noah is keeping eyes on Carl and Sophia, in case they are noticed. At this time, we cut to Andrea back in the R.V., she notices the herd, falls to the floor and hides. Sophia is whimpering, but Noah puts his finger on his lips to her, telling her to calm down and be quiet, and she is trying to do so. Carol is covering her mouth to silence her sobs, and Lori is doing so to her as well. Rick motions to Lori to stay put and don’t move, and she nods. We then see T-Dog, trying to hide from the Walkers, and gets himself cut. He then quickly rushes away to another car and hides there. A Walker makes it’s way into the R.V., and Andrea gathers her stuff and hides in the bathroom. At this time, the Walkers have finally reached them, and they proceed to walk on not noticing them. Rick looks over to Carl and Sophia and tells them to be quiet by putting his finger to his lips. Carl looks very scared, but he nods his head, Sophia is trying her best not to make a sound. T-Dog then proceeds to move on, leaving a trail of blood. Andrea is trying to put the gun together, but then stops when the Walker reaches the door to the bathroom. The walker walks all the way to the back, and then proceeds to leave, but Andrea tries to finish putting the gun together and drops part of it making a loud sound]
Andrea
*Said in a whisper* Shit!
[The Walker hears this and makes its back to the bathroom door. Andrea puts her feet up and pushes against the door. The Walker then proceeds to pry the door open. Andrea is whimpering and crying. Dale hears this and looks through the vent over the bathroom, Andrea notices him and looks up. Dale then takes a screw-driver, pries the vent open and drops it down to her. She catches it and readies herself. At this time we see T-Dog become cornered by a Walker, but Daryl comes up behind it and drives one of his arrows into its head, killing it. Andrea is crying her eyes out, but has the screw-driver readied in her hand. She pulls her feet back and the Walker tries to grab her, but she pushes it back and drives the screw-driver into the Walkers eye, he is still alive and she continues to drive it in and out of its eye until they fall to the ground. She rears back and plunges the screw-driver into its eye one last time and and falls backwards, crying and sobbing. Daryl then tells T-Dog to be quiet and places the dead Walker on top of him. He then goes over, takes a dead Walker out of one of the cars, and lay’s down on the ground and places it on top of him as well. Shane, Jonah Glenn are watching as Walkers go by, they then look to see that Ali and Laura are both holding on to each other and looking around, Ali is holding back her tears and Laura looks completely terrified, but she is remaining silent. We then go back to Noah and Rick’s group of people hiding. Then, the Walker’s walking by seemed to have stopped coming. Everyone is looking around and they all start to relax a little, hoping that it’s all over. Andrea slowly makes her way up, her breath stuttering from crying. Daryl takes off his “shield” and then goes over and pulls the body off of T-Dog as well. He pulls him up and checks on his arm, but they appear to be fine for the most part. Rick looks to Carl and nods his head, Carl smiles and nods back. Noah breathes in a sigh of relief, They all made it, they’re all okay. Sophia then moves over to the edge of her car and peeks out to see behind her. Suddenly a Walker appears next to her and tries to grab at her. she starts to whimper very loudly and moves back under the car. She screams, the walker gets down on the ground and grabs at her. Noah see’s this and starts to yell for her]
Noah
SOPHIA, NO!
[Sophia looks to her mother crying, but Carol is still being held by Lori, keeping her from getting her and her daughter killed. Sophia proceeds to crawl out from under the car]
Noah
*Starts to get out from under the car* It’s gonna get her Rick, we gotta do something and we gotta do it NOW!
[Rick pauses for a second but then he grabs his gun and follows Noah out from under the car. Sophia crawls out from under the car, she gets out from the other end, crawls underneath the railing and runs down the hill into the woods. The walker and another one that appears chase after her. Noah runs and jumps over the railing, and Rick follows behind him but he falls down the hill. Noah checks on him right quickly but Rick motions for Noah to go on and Noah does. The rest of the group runs to the edge of the railing and watches as Noah chases after Sophia and her Walkers]
Carol
*Rushing over to the Railing* Oh my baby, Lori their after my baby!
Ali
*See’s Noah* NOAH! *She then tries to get over the railing but Shane stops her* Let me go!
Shane
Ali, stop it, there’s nothing you can do.
Laura
*She looks on... scared to death of what may happen to her son. She walks over to Ali and holds her, they are both crying* He’ll be okay Ali, he’ll be okay. *She starts crying. Jonah comes over and consoles Ali. Laura goes over to Carol and holds her, as a mother she can understand her feelings* He’s gonna save her Carol, I know it. *Carol is crying but she is hoping the same thing*
Shane
*Shane looks on, with a look of intense worry on his face, he want’s to run after Noah and help, but he knows there’s nothing he can do right now* *Said in a worried voice* Noah...
The Woods
[While running, Noah and Rick spot the Walkers chasing Sophia]
Rick
Noah, you keep running straight ahead, I’m gonna go around so that we can flank them. Don’t try to fight them off, leave that to me. You just focus on getting Sophia. *Noah nods* okay GO!
[Noah runs on ahead as fast as he can. He’s not sure about splitting up, but he knows that Rick knows more about that kinda stuff then he does so he listens. He keeps running]
Noah
*Looking around and running through the woods* Sophia! Sophia where are you!? *He keeps running, he’s not gonna lose her, he’s not gonna let her get infected* *Yells with worry and fear in his voice* Sophia! Sophia where are you!? SOPHIA!!!
[He then hears rustling in the woods. He looks over and sees Sophia running away from the Walkers]
Noah
*Said in a worried whisper* Sophia...
[He runs on ahead of her. We cut to Sophia running from the Walkers, and she stumbles to the ground. She gets back up, but she is grabbed...by Noah. He holds her in his arms. They are both crying.]
Noah
Shh, It’s okay I got you, it’s okay. It’s okay, your okay. *She continues crying*
Sophia
*See’s Noah’s pistols and grabs at them* Kill them!
Noah
No, that’ll just bring the rest back and then we’ll really be in trouble! *He looks over his shoulder* Come on we have to hide!*He takes her hand and they run on. He doesn’t see the Walkers but they keep running. They then reach a small creek. They stop there* Okay, *Looks around and see’s a place to hide* Okay, come here. *He takes her over to the hiding place* Sophia listen to me okay. Your gonna hide in here and and not move unless me or Rick gets you, or if you think you can make it back on your own, you hear me?
Sophia
*Crying* No, Noah please don’t leave me!
Noah
I’m not leaving you Sophia, but I need to make sure your safe. *He thinks for a second, then he takes out the knife he carries, the one Jonah gave to him* Take this *She looks unsure, but he puts it in her hand* Listen okay, if one of them finds you, don’t let them get ahold of you, just use this to keep them at a distance okay? *She is crying but she nods. He then looks up and hears the Walkers approach* Okay, I’m gonna try and distract them, when you think you have the chance I want you to run, run as fast as you can and don’t look back. Run the opposite direction we just were and you should make it back to the highway okay? *She nods* Okay, *he hugs her* Your gonna be okay, now go. *She runs and hides in the hole. As soon as she is in the hole, The Walkers spot Noah, he looks up and see’s them. He hopes Rick will hear them and find his way to them so that he will have a better chance of stopping them* Hey, you two. You don’t want that little girl, you want me. Come on!
[The two Walkers rush down the hill towards Noah. The first one lunges at him, but Noah just dodges him. He then takes one of his pistols and holds it, he knows he can’t shoot or he’ll bring the hold herd down on them so he can only beat them with it. The second Walker makes an advance towards him. Noah turns around and sweeps it’s feet, knocking it to the ground. He then gets on top of it and jabs the barrel of the gun into one of it’s eye sockets, killing it. He breathe’s a sigh of relief, but then he remembers the other one. He quickly whirls around, but the other Walker gets on top of him, pinning him to the ground. Noah’s helpless. He can’t fight back due to him keeping the Walker from biting him in the neck, because immune or not, that would kill him. He looks over and see’s that Sophia is still hiding in the hole, clutching the knife close to her chest]
Noah
*Yells in desperation* Sophia, RUN!!!
Sophia
*She’s scared, but she doesn’t want to just leave Noah here alone. She then becomes very angry. She’s not gonna let the Walker hurt someone she cares about* *She lunges towards the Walker* LEAVE HIM ALONE!
[She runs and jabs the knife into the Walkers back. It turns and looks at Sophia, who then becomes frightened. She turns and starts to run away, but she doesn’t make it far before she trips and falls in the water. The walker then advances towards her. Noah is still stunned from the Walker, but hurry’s towards them. All of a sudden, Rick runs out of nowhere and hurdles a large rock at the Walkers head, stunning it. Noah runs and checks on Sophia, who is fine. Rick then takes the rock and gets on top of the Walker. Noah shields Sophia’s eyes, and Rick bashes the Walker in the head]
Rick
*Get’s up and runs over to Noah and Sophia* Sophia, you okay?
Sophia
*She is sobbing her eyes out* Yeah. *She clutches on to Noah* That was so scary!
Noah
*He holds her close* I know sweetie, I know.
Rick
*He puts his hand on Noah’s shoulder* Come on, we need to head back.
[Noah nods. Sophia lets go and holds on to Noah’s hand as they walk off with Rick]
The Abandoned Highway
[Rick, Noah, and Sophia make their way back up the hill. Carol see’s Sophia and runs to her, Sophia then runs to her mother and they embrace each other. Laura and Ali run to Noah and they hug him. Lori and Carl rush over to Rick and see that’s he’s fine as well]
Carol
*After hugging Sophia, she looks up to Noah and gets up to hug him* *Said crying* Thank you, thank you! *Noah simply nods his head*
Laura
*Walks over to Noah and takes him in her arms* Good job, Noah. *Smiles through her tears* But next time, don’t rush off like that please?
Noah
*Smiles* I don’t know if I can promise that. *They share smile. Ali and Jonah look on smiling*
Shane
*Walks up to him, takes him under one of his arms and rustles his head* Way to go kid. *Noah smiles. Everyone is happy that they were able to save Sophia from the Walkers*
Daryl
Yeah well we aren’t home yet. *They all look to him* We still gotta lotta work to do. *Points to the congested highway* Might wanna hurry up and get back at it incase they decide to turn around.
Rick
Right. *Sighs and then turns to the group* Okay everyone, we dodged a bullet just now, but we can’t let our guard down. We still have to find what we can here and then clear a path. *The group nods* Okay, lets get to work.
[Rick walks off to help move cars with Daryl and Jonah. Glenn walks off to continue looking for a radiator hose. Laura takes T-Dog inside the R.V. to patch up his arm. Ali joins with Sophia and Carol to continue looking through the cars as does Lori and Noah. Dales returns to his perch in case more Walkers show up. Shane however stands where he’s at for a minute with an intense look on his face, and he then proceeds to looking for a radiator hose]
Carl
*Noah has paired up with Carl to look through the cars and Carl is blown away by what Noah just did* That was awesome Noah! The way you just ran off and killed those Walkers, your so cool.
Noah
*Smiling* Well, your dad killed the other one Carl. If anyone’s awesome it’s him, if hadn’t shown up when he did I don’t think me or Sophia would have made it.
Carl
*Wowed* Really!? *Noah smiles and nods* Cool. Well, your cool too Noah. I mean, with you, Dad, and Shane here there’s nothing to be afraid of!
Noah
*He smiles, but he then becomes slightly sad/afraid, but he doesn’t want to bring Carl’s spirits down* Yeah, you right Carl.
Carl
*At this time, the find the car with the body that has the knife collection* Hey Noah, look at this. *Noah looks in the window and smirks* Think those could come in handy?
Noah
*Smiles and pats Carl on the shoulder* Well, it wouldn’t hurt to take them just in case. *Carl opens the truck door and tries tugging the bag off* You need some help?
Carl
*Struggling* No *Grunt* I got it.
[Noah just smiles and stands back. Carl then climbs into the truck and proceeds to tug at the bag. He then gets it loose but he falls back and the corpse pulls up hanging over the side of the seat. Noah gets down to check on Carl, and they then both share a laugh]
Carl
*Noah and Carl then rush over to Shane, Lori see’s them and walks over* Shane!
Lori
What’s wrong, are you two okay?
Noah
*Smiles* Yeah, we’re fine.
Carl
*Smiling* Check it out Shane. *He gets down and unrolls the bag to show a small arsenal of knives, machetes and axes* It’s an arsenal!
Shane
That’s nice Carl, take ‘em to Dale.
Carl
*Doesn’t listen to him and proceeds to take out the hatchet* Check it out, a hatchet!
Lori
Carl, don’t play with that.
Noah
*He is amazed by the blades to, and takes out the Survival Series Parang and looks at it* *Smiles and chuckles a bit* Come on Lori, you gotta admit this is cool.
Lori
*Looks over to Noah and gives him a “Mom” look* Don’t encourage him. *Noah make’s a “Sorry” face and then puts the blade back in it’s holster*
Carl
Check out how sharp they are.
Lori
Carl, were you listening to me? I said put it back.
Carl
*Said in a hopeful tone* Can I keep one?
Lori
*Takes the hatchet away* *Said in a stern motherly tone* Was that a serious question?
Carl
*Hates that his mom won’t let him keep one* Aw, come on mom. *Looks to Noah for support* Noah?
Noah
Sorry Carl, but I have to agree with your mom. These things can be really dangerous if you don’t know how to use them.
Carl
*Turns to Shane* Come on Shane, tell them I can keep one.
Shane
*Turns and looks at them with a stern/angered look* Hey, I just told you to take them to Dale and I’m not gonna tell you again, go!
Noah
*Carl then becomes sad/angry. He thought that Shane would stick up for him. Lori hands Carl the bag and he runs off. Noah and Lori both look at Shane confused and irritated* *Said in a serious tone* That was a little harsh Shane. Was that really necessary?
Shane
What?
Lori
*Said in a hush, but serous tone*You just blew him off Shane, you really hurt his feelings. *Shane doesn’t respond to them, and proceeds to continue what he’s doing* *Becoming angry*You can’t seriously-- What are you giving me the silent treatment? *Noah is starting to sense the same intensity he felt back at the C.D.C. library, and readies himself*
Shane
That’s what you want isn’t it? Didn’t you tell me to stay away from you and him?
Lori
*Becoming more and more angry* And I suppose you don’t remember what you did at the C.D.C. and how you--
Shane
*Walks towards her* How I what, what do you think that was?
Lori
I don’t think I have to tell you what it was Shane-
Shane
A mistake *Noah is shocked* I know that Lori and I’ve even said it to you. I’ve had my share of mistakes Lori, *Looks to Noah, who then turns his head in sadness* believe me. But I’m not the only one now am I?
Noah
*Steps in the gap between them* Okay, you two just need to calm down before you make scene--
Lori
*Walks past Noah to Shane, they both ignored him* You think I don’t know that? I’ve never forgotten that Shane, but... Shane we can’t do this anymore.
Shane
Why do you think I’m fixing my ride up? *Lori and Noah look at the car to see that he wasn’t looking for a radiator hose, but fixing it to where it would run* I’m not staying anymore, I’m leaving.
Noah
What!?
Lori
Leaving?
Shane
Yep, for good. Gonna slip out while no no ones lookin’ and head off. *He gets into the car and cranks it. The radio in the car then turns on repeating the message heard in the episode*
Glenn
*Glenn, Dale, and Andrea walk over hearing the radio* That has to be close right?
Dale
Yeah, I’d say *thinks for a second* within 50 miles of here.
Noah
It’s not right. *They look at him* Can’t you tell? That recording’s probably been playing for who knows how long. *He looks at Shane with a mad look on his face*
Shane
*Shane see’s this but doesn’t respond. He gets in and turns the car off* Asshole. *Looks at everyone* Okay people, back to work.*Everyone stands for a second and walks off, Lori looks at Shane for a few seconds and then turns and walks away. Noah just stand’s there looking at Shane. Who puts a suitcase in the car’s trunk. When he comes back around he see’s Noah* You too Noah, go on and help.
Noah
*Pissed off* Okay, but let me do this first. *He then takes out his knife and proceeds to cut the cables in the cars engine*
Shane
*Shane see’s this and become furious* What the hell are you doing?
Noah
I was just about to ask you the same thing. *Shane steps back* What the hell are you thinking about leaving us. Don’t you see that we need you.
Shane
Well, from what I’ve been seeing it appears you can take care of yourself just fine.
Noah
*Pissed off and somewhat shocked* You think that that was me taking care of myself? I’m a complete mess Shane, it’s taking everything I have to not have mental breakdown in front of everyone!
Shane
Well if you need me so much help then why do you keep going off and getting yourself hurt or putting yourself in danger? How am I suppose to protect you if you keep running into harms way!?
Noah
*Gets closer to Shane* Everything I’ve done so far was to make sure that everyone else was safe! The Camp attack, the C.D.C., Sophia, I wasn’t thinking about me any of those times Shane I was thinking about you and everyone else.
Shane
*Almost yells* Well, if you don’t care whether you live or die, then why should I!?
Noah
*Almost screams* Because that’s what a father does! *Shane is taken back by this* They are there for they’re children. They stay by them through their struggles, they hold their hands to let them know that their not alone in their pain! *He starts crying, he is saying what he feels he has missed out on in his childhood due to his fathers job* Their suppose to say that they know what your going through, that know how it feels to be lost. *Shane is ashamed of making Noah feel so sad* But most importantly Shane, they’re suppose to be there. Just so you know that in the end you’ll always have someone waiting for you at home.
Shane
*Lowers his head in shame* Noah I... *Noah is still crying somewhat* I-- I don’t know what to say.
Noah
*Gets closer to him and hugs him* Say you won’t leave. Say that no matter what you’ll be here. Say that I’m not gonna end up alone... that I won’t have to watch you all die.
Shane
*Shane is shocked, now he realizes what Noah means. It’s the same thing he said back the camp after Amy died, that he’s afraid that due to the fact that he’s immune he will end up being the last person on the planet. Shane had forgotten about this, but now that he remembers he understands why Noah is scared for him to leave* *He holds Noah and lets him cry on his shoulder* I promise Noah... I won’t leave you alone *His eyes start to water a little as well* I promise you. *We pan over to show that Lori has been watching from a distance. She sheds a few tears, and then walks on to the others*
[Time passes on to where it’s later in the day near sundown. The group has been busy all day either moving cars, siphoning gas or looking through the cars. We then see Rick walk over to Laura who has been working with Lori look through the cars]
Rick
Laura, can I talk to you for a second?
Laura
*She looks at Rick confused for a second, but nods her head, Lori walks off to join Carol, Sophia, and Ali* What?
Rick
How’s T-Dog?
Laura
He’ll be fine, I had to use some of Dales fishing line to sew the wound close. Doesn’t look like there was an infection or anything so he should be fine by tomorrow... but that’s not what you really want to know is it?
Rick
*He has been thinking about what Jenner told him back at the C.D.C., and he wonders if Laura would know anything* Back at the C.D.C. before we left, Edwin told me something that *Hesitates* that I’m not sure what to make of.
Laura
You mean about the outbreak? *Rick is shocked, he didn’t think it would be that obvious what he was about to ask her* We were working together on that project Rick, so everything he knew I knew too. *Rick looks like that he should have figured that out by himself* And yes, what he told you was true. How it’s true I’m afraid I don’t know.
Rick
I was afraid of that.
Laura
Trust me, if I knew how to fix this I would have done it along time ago.
RIck
*Put’s his hand on her shoulder* I know Laura. *Hesitates to ask* Have you heard any word on Jerry?
Laura
*Her demeanor quickly changes to a depressed sadness* No... before everything went dark I tried to contact him, but he wouldn’t tell me where he was. Just that he *He eyes start to water* That he loved me and the kids, and he hoped we would all be okay. *She looks over to where Ali is* I don’t know what I’ll do if he’s--
Rick
He’s not Laura, he’s alive. *She lowers her head* You know Jerry, he’s more stubborn than a mule and has just as much fight in him.*She smirks* If anyone can live through this it’s him. *She looks up and smiles* Okay? *She smiles and nods*
Noah
*Noah goes over to Shane, who is working on a new car* What are you up to now?
Shane
Just getting me another car. *Noah looks confused, wondering why Shane is doing this after the conversation they just had* Don’t worry I’m not going anywhere, it’s just in case we need another one.
Noah
*Breathes a sigh of relief, he was worried for a second* Well, can I help you?
Shane
*Looks up and smiles* Sure, come on over. *Noah smiles and walks over to the front of the car. At this time we cut to show Dale looking down at Noah and Shane from his perch. He is still weary of Shane, but is trying to keep faith that Noah knows what he’s doing*
Rick
*Said to the group* Okay people, we’ve gotten a lot done today. But it’s time to get some rest, I’ll take the first watch, Dale you take second *Dale nods* and Shane you take third *Shane nods* Everyone else... good night. *The group nods. They then split off and prepare for the night*
Abandoned Highway/Morning
[The group wakes up. They all had managed to get some sleep last night. We see Carol, Lori and Laura going through any food that they had left, and handing it out to people. Everyone looks happy for the moment, they are still relieved that they were able to rescue Sophia, who is staying by her mothers side. We then see Shane, Noah, Glenn and Daryl approach Rick]
Shane
Rick, I think we have a problem.
Rick
What?
Glenn
We’re starting to run out of food.
Rick
What!? *Looks over to the women and see’s that they’re rations are starting to dwindle. From what he can tell, they may have enough for a few more days*
Daryl
There’s a simple solution to our problem though. We go huntin’.
Noah
*Sighs* Daryl, just because you found that one deer doesn’t mean that theirs a whole bunch just running through the forest.
Glenn
That would be a lucky break though. *Noah looks over to Glenn and they just smirk*
Rick
Well... if you guys think we could all make it back in one piece, then I guess there’s no problem. Let’s let everyone else know. *They walk over to the rest of the group* Okay everyone, we’re gonna make a sweep through the woods to find any food we can. Be sure that you all stay close, never lose sight of anyone. If you do then do your best to make it back here. *Looks over to Dale and T-Dog* Dale, T-Dog, you two mind staying behind and keep working on the R.V..
T-Dog
No prob, *Looks at his arm* wouldn’t want mess anything else up right? *he smirks*
Dale
Sure, we don’t wanna stay any longer than we need.
Rick
*Pulls over Carl* You mind looking after Carl and Sophia too?
Carl
No I’m going. *Rick looks at him with uncertainty* You need all the people you can to scan a bigger area don’t you?
Lori
*Rick looks over to Lori* Don’t look at me I can’t keep being the one to say no.
Dale
Well, to be honest he’d probably be safer with all of you. *Carl smiles at Dale, and Dale winks back, showing his support*
Noah
Dale’s right, Rick. *Goes over and puts his arm on Carl’s shoulder* Don’t worry. I’ll keep an eye on him the whole time.
Ali
I’m gonna stay. *They look at her* I’m not a big fighter, I’ll do more good here helping them and keeping Sophia safe in case some of them show up.
Laura
Me too. Plus, I’m not a bad shot. So if they do show up we’ll have three people to pick them off.
Noah
*Looks over to Jonah* What about you?
Jonah
I’m going with you guy’s. Like Carl said, the more people we have the better.
Rick
*He still doesn’t like it, but he realizes he’s outnumbered* Okay, but you stay close to us at all times, no exceptions got it? *Carl nods*
Rick
*We then cut to where the group opens the blade bag* Everyone take a weapon Noah takes out the weapon he fumbled with the day before and claims it*
Andrea
*Pissed off, she’s still mad at them for not giving her her gun the night before* Knives? This isn’t what we need, we need the guns.
Shane
We’ve already had this conversation, sweetheart. Only one’s carrying are Dale, Rick, and myself. Which means *Walks over to Noah* Noah, hand ‘em over. *He is reluctant, but he understands. He’s grown attached to his pistols, but realizes that right now he needs to have a more silent approach to defending himself*
Noah
*Said in a humorous, yet serious voice* I can have them back eventually, right?
Shane
Hopefully so, sharp shooter like you. *They share a laugh, Noah hands Shane his pistols, and Shane gives them to Dale who puts them in the R.V. and comes back out* *looks to the rest, but lands his eyes on Andrea* We wouldn’t someone to just be shooting up rustling bushes.
Andrea
*Said in a sarcastic, but resentful tone* I’m not afraid of a bush.
Shane
Say some pops a shot off while a herds walking bye, then we’re all screwed. So what you need to do is just forget about, ‘cause it ain’t happening. *He throws his bag over his shoulder and walks off*
Daryl
I’ll head over to the creek first, if I’m lucky I may catch one while it’s drinking.
Rick
*Rick looks to everyone else* Be quiet, and keep your eyes open. Don’t keep bunched up but don’t lose eyes on each other.
Shane
*Walks back over to the center of the group* Everyone get your packs ready.
Dale
*Andrea walks over to Dale, he already knows what she’s gonna ask* Andrea please.
Andrea
I’m not leaving without my gun, I’m even willing to beg.
Noah
*He understands Andrea’s pain to an extent, and he tries to comfort her* Andrea, please just try and understand-
Andrea
Noah, pleas stay out of this it has nothing to do with you. *Noah is taken back by this*
Dale
Don’t take this out on him Andrea, he’s done nothing wrong. And you may not see it now but I’m thinking about you by doing this--
Andrea
*Becoming irritated* No Dale your only thinking about yourself, *Looks over to Noah* And I don’t want your sympathy.
Noah
Excuse me? I lost her too Andrea--
Andrea
*Snaps* No not really, you didn’t Noah. You knew her for what, three days? What you two just magically fall in love and that makes me and you best friends? Grow up.
Noah
*Doesn’t mean to, but he retaliates* Oh of course, I’m the one needing to grow up when all you want is a gun to blow your brains out.
Andrea
You don’t know what I’m gonna do--
Noah
Someone in your situation Andrea, it’s kinda obvious.
Dale
Please, you two need to calm down before--
Andrea
And who told you you could make all of my decisions? Jenner gave us a choice and I made mine.
Dale
You chose suicide!
Andrea
I made my choice, Dale. And I would have died the way I wanted, but instead you had to force me out. What did you think I left because you convinced me it was the wrong call? I only left because I didn’t want everyone here to blame me for your death.
Noah
So let me get this straight, your mad at him for keeping you from killing yourself? Explain to me how that makes sense.
Andrea
*Snaps at Noah* It wouldn’t make since to you, you still have your sister and mother. I have nobody now. *She starts crying* You said your afraid your gonna end up alone, well I beat you there Noah. I’ve felt alone the moment I pulled that trigger to Amy’s head. I appreciate your support through that time I do, but don’t think you know me enough to judge me.
Noah
*He understands what she’s saying, but he want’s her to know that he DOES understand how she feels* *His eyes start to water* I loved her Andrea. *She looks at him, somewhat taken back by this. Everyone turns and looks at them* I know it’s strange for me to say, I only knew her for three day’s like you said. But I’m not the one who started it, it was her. *Andrea is shocked, this is something that she didn’t know* She told me that I gave her hope again, that I *He is fighting back his tears* That I made her believe again. Then... she kissed me, she was the first girl I’ve ever kissed Andrea and I wouldn’t just let her do it. I loved your sister more then you can understand and more than I can understand too. But we did love each other. And for that small amount of time... I felt normal again. I can’t say I understand how it feels to lose a sister, but I can understand how it feels to lose someone your connected to. *Andrea has a slight breakdown in tears. Noah goes over to her and holds her*
Andrea
I’m sorry Noah.
Noah
I’m sorry too, Andrea... for everything.
Dale
*Smiles, he goes over to them, and he helps pull Andrea up* You gonna be okay? *She wipes off her eyes and nods. he heads back in to the R.V. and comes out with Andrea’s gun* Here, it yours if you want it.
Andrea
*She looks at it for second, but then she shakes her head* No, I’ll be fine. Don’t worry. *Dale smiles and heads back into the R.V.I
Rick
*Feels that the situation has been diffused* Alright, lets head out. *The group heads over the railing and into the woods. Ali, Laura, Sophia, Dale, and T-Dog look on, wishing them all luck*
The Woods
[We cut to the woods to show that everyone has split into the groups they are in from this part of the episode. Noah is with Rick, Carl and Shane. They are walking through the woods looking around for anything they can find]
Noah
Well, if we don’t find anything at least we can say we gotta good work out.
Shane
I’d rather just go the gym.
Carl
I think it’s cool!
Rick
*Chuckles* Well, at least your having some fun.
[They then hear twigs snap. Rick puts his hand up telling them all to stop. Shane lifts up his shotgun, and Noah readies his blade. Carl stays next to Rick. They slowly walk towards where the sound came from... and they see a deer, a big one too. It’s just eating at the leaves, completely oblivious to what has happened to the world]
Noah
*Said in a soft whisper* *Smiles* Well how about that.
[The deer apparently hasn’t noticed them, and he walks into the clearing just in front of Rick and his group. It stop and looks around.
Rick
*Shane readies his shotgun at the deer, but Rick stops him* Shane, wait. *Shane is confused at first, but he then looks at Carl, who appears mesmerized by the deer. Shane smiles and lowers his shotgun back down*
[Rick, Noah, and Shane watch as Carl slowly approaches the deer, close enough to where he’s only a few feet away. The deer looks up and looks up, but doesn’t notice anything, and continues to pick at the ground. Carl is grinning from ear to ear, he never believed he would see something like this in the World he’s now living in. Carl looks back at the others, and they all just smile and nod, saying it’s okay for him to get closer. Carl gets just a little bit closer, and he accidentally steps on a twig. The deer snaps up and stares at Carl, it’s ears moving back and forth trying to focus on everything around it. Carl is just smiling, he is amazed that he has made it this close and it hasn’t wondered off. The deer continues to start at Carl and Carl just stands at the deer. Suddenly, at shot rings out through the woods, and both Carl and the deer fall to the ground. A bullet wound is starting to bleed from Carl’s lower chest. The guys are in shock]
Rick
*In shock and disbelief* No, no no no no, CARL! *The all run to Carl’s side. Shane looks out to where the shot came from with his shotgun ready*
Noah
*Lifts up Carl’s shirt to see the wound, and it’s bad, he checks for a pulse, and see’s that Carl is still alive* Carl, come buddy wake up!*Carl doesn’t respond* Wake up Carl, come on! *He starts to cry* Carl please wake up, please.
Rick
*Sitting on the other side of Carl, he is crying his eyes out in fear* Carl! *He shakes at Carl* CARL!!!
