“Man it seems quiet today.” “And yer complaining? I rather it be like this then..yanow th’ walkers out and about.” “Gee thanks Kaiti..lets head to the river to get some food.” She sighs blowing her bangs as she follows her aussie friend down the dirt road, it was a cool day as leaves fall around them littering around the ground. Mick climbs down the hill and walks to the rushing river as Kaiti slowly climbs down. “Stinkin hill..” “Don’t get mad at land because your short as hell.” “HEY! If i get down there I’m gonna beat yer ass Mick!!"
He laughs grabbing a spear as he looks at the water, Kaiti huffs finally getting down as she walks over to him. “Yer a real piece of work ya now that?” “Thanks, now get to fishing. We’re burning daylight.” Kaiti rolls her eyes and she looks around as Mick keeps staring at the water looking for fish. She bends over a tree trunk looking around for some rope when a loud splash is herd and Mick yells, Kaiti raises up seeing him hanging on the edge his gun laying away from him as a walker was groaning trying to pull him into the water. She grabs her gun and runs over trying to shoot the walker off as it squirms around having a grip on the man. “Hurry up Kaiti!!” “I’m trying!!!” She cocks the gun aiming as she finally shoots it in the head knocking the walker into the water as it sinks and she pulls Mick up to land, they pant and Kaiti looks to him noticing his tank top was ripped at his hip and blood was seeping through it. “Mick..what th’ hell is that..” He raises the shirt up and a silence fills them as they see a bite mark resting on his hip.
“I…I’m bit..” Kaiti’s eyes widen as she tries to comprehend what he said, she shakes her head and tries to cover the bite. “I-It’s okay! Th’ wound may be okay enough t’ heal!!” “Kaiti don’t..you know what will happen. I’ll be fine..” “FINE!? Yer not fine!! Yer gonna be one of those…thing!!! How can this be fine t’ ya!?” “Because..your here with me.” Kaiti feels her tears soak her shirt and she hits Mick seeing his sadden stare. “MICK SHUT TH’ FUCK UP!! Ya can’t do this t’ me!!! W-We’re supposed t’ be together! Not me fucking burying ya!!!” Her voice was cracking as she adds pressure the wound, Mick sighs and grabs her chin making the girl look to him. “Look..we don’t have much time together. Let’s just spend what time I have left okay..” She hits his chest crying as she lets out a yell and he hugs her close to his slender form. “IT’S NOT FUCKING FAIR! I LOST MY FAMILY I CAN’T LOOSE YA T’!!” “Shh..” He rubs her head as she sobs hard gripping his shirt.
Silence fills the air sometime later as Kaiti helps Mick back to the base, she was bitting her lip trying to keep her emotions in as the tall man was looking a bit tired. She kicks the base door open and bring Mick inside as it closes behind them. Kaiti leans him agains’t the wall as she sits by him. “How…does it feel?” “It burns darling.. like real bad.” He grunts moving and Kaiti looks worried as she feels his forehead softly, Mick closes his dark blue eyes and sighs feeling Kaiti damp a cool washcloth on his forehead. “Thanks you Kaiti..You mean the world to me.” “P-Please Mick..jus rest..please..” She wipes her burning eyes and feels Mick wrap his arms around her again. “Let’s..just sit here. Funny..you smell wonderful even if were covered in walker blood.” “M-Mick..” “It’s True sheila..you smell like flowers. Im gonna miss being with you, even if you do snore.” Kaiti laughs dryly and lightly hits his shoulder as she moves her head underneath his chin. “It isn’t fair..I..I ain’t ready t’ loose ya..” “I know sweetheart..but things happen for a reason. I need you to be strong for me. Can you do that?” She nods and sniffles hard. “O-Okay Mickey..” “Good.” He coughs and lays back as he closes his eyes going limp for a second, Kaiti’s breath hitches in her throat as she waits for what seems like painful minutes as Mick opens his eyes again.
“Please don’t do that Mick! Y-Ya scared me..I thought..” “No Im still kicking Kaiti..” Painful hours pass as Mick started to look worse, Kaiti sees his pale form as his breathing seems raspy. He looks to the girl and he grabs her hand with his cold one. “Kaiti..it’s time. I feel myself going..” She bites back a cry and nods helping him up, she grabs her gun and takes him outback to a little apple tree. She sits Mick down and makes a grave for him as he watches. “I don’t like the fact your being quiet..Kaiti nows the time to tell me you know.” “I-I know Mick..” She finishes the hole and sits by him holding the gun, he looks to her and gives a tired smile as he leans in to her. “I was waiting to tell you..but I have to now. I..love you Kaiti. I always have..We can’t spend our days together but I’m happy knowing I got to tell you.” She feels her heart hurt and she and Mick slowly kiss as dark clouds roll above them. His cool lips press against her warm ones as rain slowly falls down over them. “I-I love ya t’ Mick..I-Im gonna miss ya..” “Im gonna miss you to sheila..now..shoot me. I promise I’ll see you soon.” Kaiti gets up feeling the rain soak her clothes that was sticking to her body, she aims the guns shaking and Mick smiles as rain drips of him. “Love you Kaiti…” A loud bang is herd and Mick’s limp body falls backwards into the hole as Kaiti sinks to her knees screaming and sobbing.
