The Walking Dead: Noah’s Story

Part Three

by

Jay Mills

Atlanta-Survivor Camp:Inside Noah’s,Ali’s, and Jonah’s tent

[Noah is inside the tent sitting down, he’s rubbing at his face where Ed had punched him. It was still stinging, and it felt sore, but he didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. Suddenly, Amy pops in the tent, holding a wet cloth. She looks worried.]

Amy

Hey Noah, are you okay?

Noah

*He pops up and see’s her, he is a little intimidated having another “girl” in his tent, but he tries to play it off* Oh, uh yeah yeah, I’m just fine, just a little bruise.

Amy

*She smiles, she can tell he’s nervous, she goes over and sits down next to him* You don’t have to be tough to impress me, Noah.

Noah

*Drops his act* Okay, then yeah it kinda hurts.

Amy

*She laughs* Okay, hold still. *She takes the cloth and rubs his eye with it, he whence’s* Sorry.

Noah

No, it’s-it’s just a little sore.

Amy

*Smiles* I just wanted to say thanks for what you did earlier, standing up for Carol. *Wipes at his face with her hand* I’m sorry you got hurt in the process though.

Noah

*Smiles* I thought being overly apologetic was my thing Amy?

Amy

*Smile* Well, I guess your just rubbing off on people.

Noah

*Feeling kinda awkward, he sits up more and clears his throat* *Ahem* So, um... you and Andrea seem close.

Amy

*Frowns* Well, it’s not something I’m use to.

Noah

What do you mean?

Amy

*Moves over next to him* Andrea was already grown up by the time I was a teenager, so we never really had many “sister” moments, you know? And when she went off to college, we practically never saw each other. While she was studying and getting her degree, I was back home just wishing I could have my sister at my sweet 16. Then she became a civil rights lawyer, and that just made it worse. But then, she had the idea for this road trip; she would drive me back to college and on the way we would just... have fun.*Her eyes start to water* I just think it’s funny, that the moment we actually start trying to get to know each other, all of this has to happen.

Noah

*He feels sad for her, he reaches over and puts his hand on hers, she looks at him, tears starting to fall down her face* I know this may sound weird, but hasn’t all this brought you two closer? *She looks confused* Now that you two are together, going through all of this together, haven’t you two become closer then you’ve ever been?*She looks down, it never really crossed her mind, but she realizes he’s right, her and Andrea have never been this close, and realizing this brings a smile to her face* I know that probably sounded really dumb, but--

Amy

*She leans over and kisses him on the cheek, he just freezes, this is the first kiss he’s ever had, and he’s at a loss for words* Thanks Noah, your really sweet. *She stands up and walks out of the tent smiling*

Lori

*Just as Amy leaves the tent, Lori pops in, looking extremely worried* Oh Noah, sweetie are you okay?

Noah

*He’s still a little dazed* Huh? *Realizes Amy’s gone and Lori’s there* Oh, uh yeah it’s just a little bruise.

Lori

*Angry* Oooooh, I have half a mind to take a knife and cut that assholes ball’s off I--*Notices that Noah is blushing, she is confused for a second and then remembers Amy just left* *She smiles* No...

Noah

What?

Lori

You like Amy don’t you?

Noah

*Bucks up* No!!! It’s not like that she’s just-- *he gives up* maybe a little.

Lori

*Rushes over and sit’s down next to him* She just kissed you didn’t she?

Noah

How did you--

Lori

Because when she walked out she looked like a little school girl.

Noah

*Blushes* Really? *His happiness quickly fades* It doesn’t matter though.

Lori

*Confused* Why not?

Noah

Well, she’s 24 and I’m 18. It’s just a little...weird.

Lori

*Laughs* Noah, if 65 year old men can hook up with with girls in their twenty’s, then I think 6 years apart isn’t gonna be a problem.

Noah

*Looks sad* It’s not just that,*She looks confused* What if... what if something happens to her? I don’t wanna go through that Lori...I don’t think I could.

Lori

*Realizes what he means, she wraps he arm around him and pulls him in to where she can put her head on his* Noah, I know it’s scary, being in love for the first time usually is, especially if your in the situation we’re all in now.*Takes her hand and puts it underneath his chin, to where she’s got his head turn to her eyes* But let me tell you something... love is NEVER easy. It’s a lot of hard work, commitment and learning to have faith in people. Me and Rick, we’re not a perfect couple, we have our up’s and our down’s, but in the end... we always know we can count on each other.

Noah

*He feel’s a little better, but hearing this makes him think of the conversation he overheard between Shane and Lori. He’s fighting the urge to tell her he heard them. But realizes that it would probably just make things worse. But he decides to ask a question that he thinks may give him some answers about this* So... what did you do to get through the time you thought he was dead?

Lori

*Pauses* I tried to find comfort in the people around me, and I tried to find something that could give me a sense of...happiness. *She now looks a little mad*

Noah

*Notices this and takes the opportunity* And what did you find?

Lori

*A long pause occurs, and when she speaks her eyes water and her voice slightly breaks* Nothing...but a lie. *She wipes at her eyes and laughs, Noah just looks at her, sad but is hiding it* Well, I’m gonna go, if that man tries to give you any trouble let me know, okay? *He nods* Okay. *She gets up to walk out but as she gets to the opening Shane walks in. They look at each other for a split second and Lori walks on out*

Shane

*Looks at Noah and immediately his demeanor changes from rough and angered, to concerned. He walks over and kneels down to Noah* You okay? *He reaches out to Noah’s face but Noah turns his head and looks down* *Huff* Look Noah, I know you said that apologizing to you wouldn’t fix anything...but your wrong. *Noah looks up* I can still apologize for bringing you in to this, I never meant for things to get this bad.

Noah

*Said smart* As do most of the men that sleep with a women, *stresses the rest* who tells her that her husband’s dead when he’s not.

Shane

*Agitated* Noah, I told you that the machines cut off and I couldn’t--

Noah

He was in a coma Shane, what did you think that if you shook him a little he’d jump outta bed?

Shane

*Looks down in shame* I just... there was so much happening all at once.

Noah

*He looks at him intensely, then he looks down and then sighs, he pulls at Shane to sit next to him* Look Shane, what bothers me is not the relationship itself, *Shane looks confused* it’s what you did to start it that does. I mean if Rick WAS dead, then yeah I would understand it and it would be okay, but the fact that you weren’t sure if he was dead or not isn’t enough reason to do what you did.

Shane

*Scoff’s in annoyance* Why do you keep saying that?

Noah

Because, Shane, You BETRAYED Rick when you started all this. You two are best friends, practically brothers. But when you started this thing with Lori you betrayed that friendship, that trust. And traitors don’t make good friends Shane.

Shane

*Silent, but then lifts his head up* I didn’t mean to betray anyone Noah. I just... it just happened.

Noah

*Sighs, he knows that Shane’s not a bad guy, that he didn’t do this to hurt anyone* I understand Shane, I do, but there’s only one way you can make this right. *Shane looks at him* You have to tell Rick the truth, if you tell him what you told me he will--

Shane

I can’t tell Rick Noah...*Noah falls back, he looks disappointed and sad* not yet. *Noah sighs*

Noah

Fine, but you will tell him, right?

Shane

Yeah, when the time is right. *He gets up and helps Noah up with him* Well, if you have any more trouble with Ed, let me know.

Noah

I don’t want him dead Shane.

Shane

I know, I know. *Walks out* Later.

[Noah decides he’s gonna walk up the hill and see how Jim is doing and if there’s anything he can do to help with the R.V. However, when he gets to the to of the hill, he doesn’t see Jim anywhere. Dale pops out of the R.V.]

Noah

Hey Dale, have you seen Jim?

Dale

He left a little bit ago, said he had some business to take care of,*gestures to it* he headed off over their to that field. *Noah starts to walk off towards the field* Noah, can I talk to you for second?

[Noah is confused, but knows Dale is someone he can trust. He follows Dale inside the R.V. Dale motions for him to come to the back and they each sit on a separate bed]

Dale

I heard about the incident at the quarry, that asshole didn’t hurt you too bad did he? *Puts his hand under Noah’s chin and turns his head to look at Noah’s eye.*

Noah

No, just a little bruise I’ll be okay. *Dale smiles* So what’s wrong?

Dale

Oh nothing’s wrong I just wanted to talk to you. *pats the part of the bed next to him, Noah smiles gets up and sits next to Dale* I’ve noticed that while your not the most *Struggles to find the word* uh “macho” of the men in this group, you have something that I feel is what this group needs more of.

Noah

*Confused* What’s that?

Dale

*Looks at him, with a very loving, fatherly look* Compassion, patience, things I’ve tried to instill in everyone, but I fear that it’s just going right over their heads. You however, you have a way of making people listen to you. So I was thinking, if we worked together, in a sense, maybe we could be the voice of reason for these people, the ones who help keep everyone from doing something that could end up getting us all killed. I know it may seem like a lot to place on a kid like you but--

Noah

*Smiles but say’s it straight forward* I’m not a kid anymore Dale, and I agree with you. These people are all going through so much, and I agree that they need someone to tell them when someones gone too far. But you have done a good job so far Dale, I mean I don’t wanna sound weird but how can someone not like you. *Dale grins and chuckles, Noah laughs with him* I’m being serious, your nice, your respectful and your able to help people get through tough situations.*Leans over on him with his shoulder nudging him* It’s people like us that keep the hot-heads alive, huh?

Dale

*Chuckles, he pats Noah on the shoulder and they stand up* You got that right. Well, I’m glad that I’m not alone in this anymore. Thanks for the talk Noah.

Noah

Anytime Dale! *He leaves the R.V. He now decides to walk off to the field Dale mentioned and check on Jim. After a few minutes of walking, he reaches the field. That’s when he notices Jim digging holes. He approaches Jim* What are you up to?

Jim

*Jim whirls around with his shovel and accidentally startles Noah* Oh, Noah its you. *Notices his eye, then turns and goes back to digging holes* Heard ‘bout your little scuff down at the quarry, hope Ed didn’t hurt you too bad.

Noah

*Noah is now a little concerned, he never saw Jim this jumpy* Yeah, It’s just a bruise. *Confused* What are the holes for?

Jim

*Said flat* Can’t tell you.

Noah

*Now he’s even more worried and confused, he approaches Jim closer* If you want, maybe I can help you--

Jim

*Turns around* No! *Noah is taken back, and nearly falls over into one of the holes. Jim drops the shovel and grabs Noah before he falls in, and pulls him back to his feet* I’m sorry.

Noah

It’s-It’s fine. *Dale comes up from behind Noah and see’s the holes*

Dale

What’s going on here?

Jim

*Picks the shovel back up and continues digging* Nothing.

Noah

*Walks to Dale, whispers* I’m getting a little worried about him Dale, what should we do?

Dale

*Thinks for a second, sighs and nudges his head back to camp* Come on.

[Noah and Dale walk back to the camp, Noah looks back one last time to see Jim still digging and he keeps going. They reach the camp and see that everyone is happy over the fish Amy and Andrea have caught. Amy see’s Noah and they share a smile. Dale breaks the excitement]

Dale

Guy’s, I think Jim has somethin’ going on with him?

Shane

*Sits up* Why did you say that?

Noah

I went to go and see if Jim wanted me to help him with the R.V., but when I found them in the field he was... digging holes.

Jaqui

*Confused* Holes?

Amy

Why would he be digging holes?

Jonah

*Thinks for a second* Did you see how deep they were?

Noah

*Thinks* I don’t know maybe... *shocked* six feet. *Realizes* He’s digging graves!

Carol

What?

Andrea

Why would he dig graves, we don’t have any dead?

Shane

*Stands up* Yet.

Noah

Wait, where are you going?

Shane

To have a little friendly conversation with Jim.

[Shane walks past Noah and Dale and towards the field. Everyone gets up and follows. They reach the field to see that Jim is still digging holes]

Shane

HEY JIM? *Jim keeps digging* Wanna tell me what your doing there?

Jim

No.

Jaqui

*Concerned* Jim, please just tell us what your doing.

Jim

I can’t.

Lori

*Carl is holding Lori, She looks over to see that Sophia is doing the same to Carol* Jim, pleas your starting to scare the children.

Shane

*When Jim doesn’t respond back, Shane approaches Jim, Noah tries to stop him but Jonah comes up behind Noah and grabs his hand. Noah looks at Jonah and see’s he’s shaking his head, Noah looks back in worry* Okay that’s it, I don’t care what your reasons are, I’m TELLING you to stop that right now!

Jim

*Turns around with his shovel ready* And if I don’t then what, *approaches Shane* you gonna be the crap out of me like you did Ed!?

[Jim swings the shovel at Shane, and the group reacts. Shane dodges the swing and tackles Jim to the ground, they begin to tussle. Noah breaks free from Jonah and runs toward them]

Jonah

NOAH, DON’T!

Amy

Noah! *She starts to run too, but Andrea stops her*

Noah

*Gets to them and pulls at Shane’s back, seeing that not work, he then puts himself between the to forcefully and pushes Shane away] THAT’S ENOUGH SHANE! *turns to Jim and see’s that he’s crying, he runs over, kneels down and turns him over on his back* Jim, are you okay?

Jim

*Crying* I... I couldn’t... I could-couldn’t save them. *Noah looks confused* The only reason I got away... is because those things were to busy eating my wife and kids!

Noah

*Shocked, he remembers Jim talking about his family and that they were dead, but he never thought that they died like that* Jim...

Jim

*Sits up and looks at Noah, he looks at him for a second and slightly smiles* You remind me so much of my oldest, he always wanted to make people smile, *breaks down* make everyone...happy. *He breaks down with his face in the ground. Noah starts crying a little, he picks Jim up and hugs him, Jim remembers hugging his son like this when he was younger, doing this made Jim feel like a father again, it made him feel at peace* I’m sorry.

Noah

*Fighting back tears, he wants to let Jim feel happy again, show him that he’s not alone in this battle of sanity that they’re all going through* It’s okay Jim, It’s okay.

[The group looks on, they are all reacting differently, but they all feel for Jim.]

Ali

*Breaks the silence* So... what now?

Shane

*Sighs, he walks over to Jim and Noah* Noah, move.

Noah

*Looks up* Why?

Shane

Like it or not, he did try to attack me, we can’t be sure if he’s just not gonna do it again. We’re gonna have to restrain him for now, until he’s appeared to have calm down.

Noah

restrain him!? Shane he’s not one of your criminals, he’s just...he’s just scared.

Shane

I know that Noah, but until he’s calmed down he’s a danger to the group.

Jonah

The poor man has been through enough Shane, I don’t think treating him like this is gonna help him.

Andrea

No, Shane’s right. *Everyone looks at her, Noah is shocked* If I was acting irrationally I wouldn’t want to be it to where I could get everyone else killed. *Looks at Noah* It’s not a permanent thing Noah, just until he’s calmed down.

Noah

*Looks at them all, and then at Jim who is still crying somewhat* But--

Jim

Noah, *Noah looks at Jim, who nods his head* It’s okay.

[Jim stands up. Shane takes Jim back to the camp and everyone else follows...except for Noah and Amy, who see’s that Noah is still standing where he was, but has turned around to look at the sky. She walks over to him]

Amy

Noah, you gonna be okay?

Noah

I don’t know Amy. I mean, I’m trying to do the right thing and make everyone happy but--

Amy

*She sits down next to him* That’s where your problem is Noah,*He looks over confused* you can’t make everyone happy. You can try, but it’s impossible because everyone’s different, what one person likes another person won’t, and then making that person happy will make another person unhappy. It’s nice and sweet for your to try, but all your gonna do is drive yourself crazy. *She leans in close and takes his hand* I have to admit though, you have helped me find something that I thought was gone forever when this all started.

Noah

*Blushes a little, but realizes that he feels the same about Amy, he looks her in the eyes* And what’s that?

Amy

*Smiles* Hope *Leans in* and love. *She kisses him. The kiss lasts for about half a minute. Once it stops, they look at each other and smile* Sorry if that was a little sudden.

Noah

Oh no, no that was *ahem* I agree with you completely. *Amy raises her eye brow and laughs* You know, about finding hope and um, love. *He takes her hand and they lace their fingers* Are we crazy... trying to do this with all that’s going on?

Amy

I think in times like this is when it’s most important, you know? *He nods his head. She stands up and he goes up with her* So, wanna head back now?

Noah

Yeah.

[Noah and Amy walk back to the camp together. Once they get there, they now see that Shane has tied Jim to a tree. This makes Noah mad]

Noah

Jim!? What the-- *he stops and looks up in frustration* SHANE!?!? *Shane comes up from the campfire area* What the hell is this? You said you were gonna restrain him.

Shane

I did.

Noah

*Said dramatically* Not by tying him to a tree!

Jim

Calm down Noah, it’s okay. *Noah looks at Jim and see’s he’s okay with this and let’s it go*

Noah

*Walks over to Jim and sits down* Fine, can I at least keep you company? *he nods* *Noah Smiles* Wasn’t gonna leave even if you said no. *Jim huff’s a laugh*

Shane

*Goes over to Jim and helps him drink some water* Drink up buddy.

Dale

Just one question: Why were you digging holes?

Jim

Honestly, I can’t remember. I had a dream last night, that’s all I CAN remember.

Noah

*Confused* So... your dream told you to dig holes?

Jim

Something like that.

Amy

Well, I’m gonna see what Andrea’s doing, I’ll see you later *She bends down and kisses Noah on the cheek and he they say goodbye to each other.

Noah

*Once Amy walks away, Shane, Dale, and even Jim all smile at Noah* What?

Shane

*Shane walks over and ruffles Noah’s head* Good catch!

Noah

*Tosses Shane’s hand away* *Said blushing* Shut up! *Shane, Dale, and Jim all start laughing. Shane and Dale walk away*

Atlanta-Survivor Camp Night Time

[Noah has stayed with Jim the entire day, keeping him company and just talking about different things. Shane approaches them and comes starts untying Jim]

Shane

Well Jim, I’d say you’ve been there long enough. Feel up to joining us for dinner?

Jim

Yeah, I think I’m good. *Looks to Noah to help him up* Thanks, Noah... for everything.

Shane

*Jim walks towards the campfire* You coming?

Noah

*Smiles, he feels like things may start getting better now, with him and Amy, To Shane making things right with Rick and Lori, everything seem’s to be getting better* Yeah, I’m coming.

[The group is gathered around the campfire, eating fish and talking. Amy and Noah are sitting together with Ali on Noah’s other side. The rest are seated in their normal fashion.]

Morales

So Dale, why would you bother with rewinding your watch when all this is going on. Isn’t time basically useless to us now?

Dale

*Chuckles* My friend, it may just be my age, but I’ve always felt that it’s important to keep track of things. *Dale starts paraphrasing Faulkner*

Noah

*Laughs* Faulkner? Really?

Dale

Oh, you caught that?

Noah

They’ve been covering everything in school lately.

Jaqui

*Huffs a laugh* I don’t know why, seem’s like all kids these days do is gossip and make MORE kids! *The group laughs*

Amy

*Laugh* You two are so weird. *gets up* I’ll be right back, just gotta use the bathroom.

Noah

*After a few minutes Noah gets up too, he wanted to talk to Amy about some things. He walked up the hill and meets Amy as she’s coming out of the R.V.* Oh, hey!

Amy

Hey Noah, something up?

Noah

No, um yes, I mean *sighs* I’m sorry I’m new to this whole “relationship” thing.

Amy

Well, you don’t have to go too far to impress me Noah. I like the way you’ve done things so far just fine. *They smile*

Noah

I know it’s just-- *all of a sudden a Walker appears behind Amy* No! LOOK OUT!!!

[Amy is too late, and the Walker gets a hold of her arm and bites her. Her screams fill the forest. Noah is surprised, but when the Walker bites Amy in the neck he goes into a frenzy]

Noah

GET AWAY FROM HER YOU SON OF A BITCH!!!

[Noah Rushes the Walker and Knocks it to the ground. He proceeds to beat it in the face as hard as he can. The Walker is stunned long enough for Noah to grab Jonah’s bat out of the R.V., comes back out and bash the Walkers skull in. Noah is now covered in blood, but when he see’s Amy laying on the ground bleeding out his eyes start to water, but out of rage instead of sadness. He looks down into the camp to see that Rick and his group have arrived back with the guns. He goes into a blind rage and runs down the hill screaming. Everyone quickly looks up to see him and then the Walkers in Noah’s way. Shane starts to shoot at them, but Noah reaches them first, Hitting them all in the head with his bat, killing some and stunning a few. People are either fighting or protecting others. He then see’s Ali on the ground holding back a walker, but Jonah quickly comes behind it and stabs it in the head with his knife. They see Noah and Jonah nods to him as he pulls Ali away to safety. He then see’s Sophia and Carol cornered by a couple of Walkers. He then Notices the gun bag. He runs to it and pulls out two dual pistols. His face is completely in a state of killing rage. He aims the pistols at the walkers and shoots them in their heads. Carol and Sophia are stunned by this but Carol acknowledges her thanks and pulls Sophia to safety. Noah is stunned that he was able to do it, he had never shot a gun in his life, but he figured that now was the best time to hone his new skill. He proceeds to shoot every Walker in his sight, with a completely blank face. Then, it’s all over. The group looks around to see that all the Walkers are dead.

Rick

*Rushes to Lori and Carl* You two alright? *They both nod their heads*

Dale

Anybody hurt?

Noah & Andrea

*Both look to the top of the hill and start crying* Amy! *They both begin running up the hill with the rest of the group following them. Andrea reaches Amy first and takes her in her arms*

Andrea

*Crying* Amy!? *Amy is starting to fade away* No no no no, come on Amy stay with me, don’t leave! *She starts breaking down* Don’t-- Don’t leave please don’t.

Amy

*Blood is running from her mouth, but she musters enough strength to speak* It’s--It’s okay Andrea, It’s okay. *Looks up at Noah he collapses on the other side of her, tears pouring down his face* Hey Noah, you okay?

Noah

*Crying* No...No I’m not, this--this isn’t fair *takes Amy’s hand* I just found you Amy *breaks down* you can’t leave me yet. Please don’t leave Amy please.

Amy

*Everyone is reacting to this either by crying or showing that they are deeply saddened by this event* Noah, look at me *He looks at her* Kiss me ... please. *He’s still crying, but he lean’s down and kisses her* Now, I can die happy, knowing I had you and my sister here. *Noah continues to hold her hand. Amy looks over at Andrea and lifts up her other hand to touch her sisters face* I’m sorry Andrea, that we won’t get to finish our trip *Andrea shakes her head, not wanting to except this* Please take care of Noah, and everyone else...for me, promise?

Andrea

*She’s is balling her eyes out* I--I promise.

Amy

*Starts to cry a little* Don’t-- Don’t let me become one of them...please. *Andrea is scared to think about that right now, but she nods her head accepting Amy’s request* Thank you Andrea. I...love you. I’m proud to call you...my... big sister...*Her hand falls from Andrea’s face and she passes away in her arms*

Andrea

*Completely loses herself* AMY!!! NO, PLEASE AMY!!! NO AMY NO! *Noah too shares this with Andrea as they both cry out for Amy*

Jim

*With a sad, solemn look on his face* Now I remember what the dream was. *Dale looks over at him* Why I dug the holes.
