Max helped with the wheat, helping Crank best he could. He was mostly there for Abby, making sure she didn't need anything. Plus he wanted to watch Sarah, make sure she stayed with it. They couldn't have her break down now, they needed a strong set of of leaders. Plus he didn't want Becky coming back. He didn't think she would, but him being there may prevent another fight.
He leaned against the counter. "We have enough Louis," he asked the man, "quite a bit in here."
The cook nodded. "This is good. I have a recipe for a homage tortilla. We can make a lot with this. Lasts longer than bread too."
"Alright. Think we can store the rest, make some a different..." His words were cut short by a scream. It was male, followed by a few females ones. The scream came from outside, toward the barn.
Max stood up. "What was that? He moved out of the room toward the front door. From the window he saw a few of the girls running from the barn. More screams could be heard from the barn again.
The last few hours had been rough. Now with the sun set Tyler was gone beyond done. He sat alone in the sectioned off room he called his. He was on his Cot, holding his arm. Sam's bunk Afros from him was empty, the young man not in the barn. Tyler ran a hand over his arm and looked out what resembled an open door.
He was but, sweat dripping off his face. His hand was missing a chunk, piece's on bone visible below. He was done, gone for. He felt weak, hot. He closed his eyes leaning back. He couldn't move, it hurt to much. He let his eyes remain closed, and slowly just drifted off. Sleep felt good right now.
Like that he had turned. He awoke faking off the cot. Movement was all around, his head empty filed with only one thing, hunger. He stumbled through the tarp and down the walkway the tarps made. He came into a room, someone shouted at him.
Tyler dropped to his knees, sinking his teeth into the chest of the person below. His mouth filled with blood as he looked up. He tore in again, chunks of meat hanging from his face. The person her tore into screamed but Tyler just ignored it. He tore in again, hearing the person's scream silence.
Turning around he saw another person. They were young, female. Tyler tore into her neck and she screamed before faking to the floor. Other people ran and tried to get out. He grabbed another, biting a chunk out of a running girl's leg.
Cory had spent the rest of the day in the barn. He didn't have to work on the wall and wanted to rest a little before his shift. Cory also wanted to avoid everything that happened during the day. Personal conflict and relationship fights weren't for him.
He looked up from his bunk and saw Tyler. But it wasn't Tyler. He had changed, was a zombie. Tyler came at him and Cory jumped up to push him back. Tyler's weight fell on him. He felt it take home down. Cory was pinned underneath, pushing up against him. He struggled under his weight but it was no use.
Tyler's teeth sank into his chest. He felt the sharp pain and screamed out. Looking down he saw the blood, coming, gushing. He had no energy to move, felt it draining him. Tears were on his cheek as he made one last effort to push the no dead Tyler off.
"Not like this... Not like this," he cried, "help, help." He felt his blood fill with mouth, causing him to cough. And then he was gone, dead. It was blackness, nothing, then a light. Hunger.
Bethany woke up, although she wasn't comfortable in a bed like many others. She had come inside, overnight, to warm up. During the afternoon she had decided to take watch, which was what she did the entire night. There was a nap here and there to keep herself alert throughout the night and she was in the midst of another nap before waking up at sunrise to get some breakfast and possibly take to the watch tower today. There wasn't a whole heck of a lot for her to do. They seemed to have a good handle on things and it seemed like they were so remote, walkers may just never find them. That was about to end.
Her eyes snapped open as she lay on the couch next to the fireplace as she heard Corey's cries for help outside. At first she thought she was imagining the yelling, but then she heard another cry that cut across the farm. Immediately she shot up, grabbed her gun on the floor and raced out the door, struggling to unlock it. She heard the commotion in the barn and raced in, although the cries had already gone silent. When she slid the heavy barn door open, the blood bath was apparent.
"Holy christ!" Her eyes raced from left to right, looking to see the cause of all this and that's when she saw Tyler gnawing on a very dead Corey. "Oh no." If there was any life left in any of these people, they would all have to be put down. It was probably too late for amputation and she had no idea how long Tyler had been turned into a biter for.
"Oh Tyler. What the hell?" She watched as he looked up to her with dead eyes that were milky from turning. She stepped in a little deeper, wondering if any of the others had turned, but he was the one to get the first bullet to the head. In one shot, she aimed at his head before she would be forced to go through the barn and do the same to the others.
Paul heard the yell from inside the barn. He had opted to give up his cot, next to Cory's, in order for one of the other members to get some sleep. He was outside, in one of the two person tent's Thaddeous had set up beside the barn. They were the temporary sleeping quarters, until the found trailers to move people in to.
Paul sat up grabbing his pistol. He quickly exited the tent, forgetting to pull on shirt. He saw Bethant go to the barn and quickly follwed. Seeing Tyler he nearly dropped the gun. The man had been quiet coming back from the run, was this why he was quiet? He was bit, they could have saved him. Bethany shot dropping the walker that had once been one of their own.
Paul raised his gun. There was a girl behind Tyler, just having turned from the bite to the neck. Paul shot, aiming at her head. He missed, the bullet hitting the ground. Firing again he shot her head, killing the girl. He heard growling from the tarp next to her, his room. There was a loud crash and more screaming.
Paul watched as the tarps started to be pulled down. There walkers were walking into them, pulling them with them as they went for what ever target was next. Paul fired his gun, missing again at a walker.
There were half a dozen walkers now, some eating the corpses on the ground, soon turning more.
"How did this happen," Paul asked, stepping back a bit as the walkers moved toward them.
Sarah stood at the sink washing the bowls and the grinders they had used. She was listening to Louis and Max talking, when the scream rang out. She moved to the back porch, grabbing Jay and keeping him behind her. " dear god, what's happened?" She glanced at Max," go, I will get Dean and send him," she glanced at Abby," you are staying here!" She glanced at Max as she waited to shut the door behind him," I'll watch her."

Amber heard the scream as she finished the last repair on her truck. Moving around to the door she grabbed her Rifel. She sprinted to the barn, running along side Bethany and Paul. Amber flipped the safety off as she entered the barn. She aimed at the walker, looking to fire. But she couldn't. She couldn't make the shot.
It was Tyler, his eyes milky, life gone. "Tyler, No," she called out, "why, why. Why." She screamed. Why did everyone she loved died? He was supposed to be different. How did this happen? She watched as the bullet entered his head, dropping what had once been Tyler. Her knees felt weak, she wanted to collapse, hold his body. But she didn't fall.
Amber fired a shot, taking out a walker. Seeing the corpse crumple to the grind she looked at the others. "Let's clear this place," she said firing again. "Every one else move back out of the barn. Don't get to close."
Lloyd was not expecting what the situation he stumbled upon. A handful of survivors getting over run by a barn full of walkers. "Bloody hell..." He muttered, a cigarette dangling from his mouth as he pulled out his pistol. "Looks like things are getting exciting already." He fired off a few shots at the crowd of walkers. "Which one of you unlucky sods is in charge, and how did you all wind up in this mess?" He dropped another walker and joined the survivors in fighting back.

Max nodded at Sarah. "Tell Dean to wait a bit. I'll come back if I need him. Both of you stay safe," Max said moving out the door. He ran across the yard heading toward the barn. Stumbling a bit do to the brace on his leg he made sure the revolver he had was up and ready.
He saw another person, someone who was not one of them heading that way too. How did he get in? They had walls all the way around? Guards were in towers watching at all times. Who was supposed to be on watch right now? He looked back at the flood light, lighting up the farm yard. He moved close to the barn.
He had the nerve just to tackle this man, send him to the ground. The stranger shot into the barn and Max walked up to him. Pressing the barrel of his gun to the mans head he spoke.
"On the fucking ground asshole," Max spat, "drop the weapon." If he didn't Max would take out the mans legs. He could deliver pain most people couldn't even begin to imagine.
"How the fuck did you get in? Who are you," Max said rasing his voice. That's why he wanted a prison. This was the second time they could have used it. Build some bars and throw the fucker in. He saw a few of the farm people coming to help, Jack and Joseph aiming guns at the man. He knew that Amber and Bethant could handle what ever was left in the barn.
"Answer me you fuck," Max said pressing the gun eve harder, "I will pull the trigger. Wouldn't even faise me."

Bethany finished off Tyler and she walked up to Cory, firing off one shot in his head. The other walkers that had been 'created' were taken care of by Amber. Looks like there was going to be new vacancies in the barn. She found herself suddenly tired and she didn't want to have to tell Thad about this. They had saved Cory from the mall. She even took a grazing bullet to make that happen and down he went due to Tyler not telling anyone he had been bit.
"He didn't tell any of us he was bit. We could have helped him."
Just as much as she let her guard down, it went right back up again as she heard a Lloyd, a stranger's voice in an accent she didn't recognize. The gun went right back up again as Max shouted at him. She went back to the barn doors, pointing the gun at him as if he were a walker ambling in.

Amber helped clear out the rest of the other walkers. She gunned them down, and threw her gun to the ground when she was done. These were her people, her friends. She shared meals with them, protected them. It was all for nothing. She gunned them down with out even a second thought. She felt sick, she didn't want to go on. So much death, the Fort, here. Why was there always so much death? She didn't want to lead, she never asked to. It just fell upon her. She didn't even have the highest rank.
Amber looked at Bethant as she spoke. When she was done Amber just looked away. "He should have told us. We could have stopped this. Maybe he thought it was to late. He was arrogant, stubborn. He probably didn't want to admit he was bit, thought he was tough enough to fight it." She slammed her fist into the barn wall. "Fuck Tyler. Why'd you have to be so stupid. We could have saved you."
She heard another voice speak and looked up. He hand pulled her pistol, and she, along with Max and Bethany, aimed at the man. Who was he? Why was he here? Was he one of the bikers? One of Darcy's? Was he a raider from the group Thaddeus and Bethany escaped at the mall.
Max asked a question but Amber just remained quiet. She looked at Paul. "Go tell Sarah and Abby what happened," she said. She looked at one of the two young men with Rifels aimed at the stranger. "Joseph, make sure the gate is closed. Grab Piper, And Memphis and look for any holes or gaps in the fence."
Paul nodded as Amber spoke to him. He quickly left the barn, tucking his pistol into the back of his jeans. He hurried past the new arrival, offering only few words as he went by.
"Good luck. They aren't exactly the most welcoming bunch," he said as he looked at the man.
Paul quickly made his way to the farm house. He went through the door and to the kitchen. Looking at Sarah his face was saddened. He didn't know how to break it to them. These were their people, friends.
"Tyler... He turned. He must have been bit on the run. He didn't tell anyone and changed. He attacked Cory, and some of the girls." Paul wished he knew there names. But with thirty plus people on the farm faces got lost. "We took care of it. They are...de... gone." He looked away. "A man showed up. We don't know how He got in, but he's armed. Max, Amber, and Bethany are dealing with it. He came in through the fence somehow, started shooting at the zombies. He smells like smoke and an old beer bottle, I honestly don't trust him."
"Whoa!" Lloyd said, surprised to have guns pointed at him. "I heard a commotion and thought to give you lot a helping hand. I was never good at the whole running away from danger thing." He put one hand in the air and slowly crouched to set his gun on the ground before raising back up, putting the other hand in the air. "The gate was open and I heard the gun shots and yelling. Thought the place was being over run and figured an extra man with training could be appreciated. Names Lloyd, I was a detective in Wales before the shit hit the fan. I was in America consulting on a case when the dead started fighting back. If you want proof, my badge and papers are in the inside pocket of my coat." He pointed down with his right hand. "I hope those will prove my story."

"You expect us to believe what you're saying. You could be the fucking pope before all this and we wouldn't give a shit," Max said the gun still aimed at the man's head. "Three years and you're still carrying your badge and papers. Kind of hard to believe. You think we're stupid, going to believe you still keep worthless shit just carrying weight. There's no law, no order. You having a badge don't mean shit."
He eyes Bethant and Amber. "I see a guy coming in here, a protected place. Trespassing on our property. You come in, start shooting into a barn full of people. There were others besides Walkers in the barn. You could have shot someone, someone we could have saved."
Max was tense, visible all through out his body. This was the point where he would have just pulled the trigger, or swung a fist at the man. But he didn't, he was changing. Changing for Abby, their baby. He gripped the gun tighter.
"Search him. Seeing he's telling the truth," Max said to Bethany and Amber.
Abby didn't want Max to go out there. All hell was breaking loose from what she could see from the window. She glanced as Sarah said she would watch her, "Im pregnant, not disabled!" It pissed her off that everyone was treating her like some kind of damn porcelain doll. She could still fight, she kicked Becky's ass, didn't she?
She heard the shots and saw Sarah slip down the basement steps to tell Dean. Jay stood there, Sarah had some kind of hold on that kid. He did whatever she told him to.
Abby glanced to the small hallway as she heard the front door. She gripped her bat, but saw it was Paul before she swung. He was lucky. Sarah came back up followed by Dean, 'what the hell?" Dean muttered, but stopped as Paul started to explain, 'Damn fool!" He started ranting in Spanish. He was obviously pissed off about Tyler. "He has risked us all!" Dean snatched his bag and went out the front door. He would see the wounded on the porch. He wouldn't risk bringing anyone inside. Abby looked at Paul, 'How many?" She asked softly, and glanced at Sarah. Sarah had sunk down in a kitchen chair, folded her hands and was praying. Abby couldn't believe it, yes she could, it was Sarah.
Rick drove his 2012 Mustang on the long road going at 100mph while listening to 2pac 'Last Mother Fucker Breathing' and with a bottle of scotch in his right hand with his left hand on the steering wheel.This was a way of bringing the memories of normal without having to watch out for people trying to eat you,people trying to rob you and people trying to kill you just to feel strong because the world became too cold for them,too tricky and too mean.Shit if Pac could see this shit now would he be the same or would he change?
Just being in a different country away from your home when this shit happened kinda hurt.No family,No friends,no familiar faces but just a instinct for survival.Rick fought raiders,robbers shit he even fought crazy ass teenagers trying to kill him for his car.He did what he had to do to survive to bring him to this point to bring on this long road of nothing.
Rick then turns the track of the cd in the cd player to "Hail Mary" by 2pac and started bopping his head to the song while rapping the song word for word but when he looked back out of the windshield of his car he saw a familiar face......Dawn.
He then suddenly pressed brakes on his Mustang but not in time before he got to her, so instead he swerved and the car, causing it to twirl from its wheels to the roof like five times in front of this farm with a house. After the crash Rick began to wake up still in the car with his face covered in blood.He screamed in agony as he tried to move out his car.He then closed his eyes and prayed to God because he felt this was his last stop on earth not that it matter because he will be able to see Dawn again he just hoped that really wasn't her on the road.

In the distance the sound of a river running brought sky out of her daze. She could see a small stream running not far ahead of her. "Looks like we got lucky gypsy." Sky said cheerfully as she patted the bay mares neck. Nudging her into a faster pace they reached the river in no time. From what she could see no walkers in site. Reaching the stream Sky quickly dismounted the horse and led her down the the stream. The horse gladly accepting the chance at water after the long treck to find a good running source. Sky was in the proccess of looking for sticks and twigs. She really needed to get enough for a small fire so she could boil up some water for the road.
After grabbing a few sticks and twigs not far from her horse she placed them on the ground and was just about prepared to get a fire started. Sky had been quite lucky to run across this horse. though she was stand offish at first it didnt take much to gain her trust.. Sky didnt know what she wouldve done without the companionship. she had been traveling for weeks. with no sign of any person. The bay mare gave her someone to talk to and not feel so alone.
Of in the distance she heard a few loud crashes. It couldnt possibly be an actual person. She honestly didnt believe she would come across anything besides walkers anymore. Sky debated on the risk of investigating the noises. The last group of people she had come across had tried to kill her and she almost didnt get away. After a few minutes of debating She grabbed the reigns and mounted the horse. She was off to find out what happened. Hopefully she would not regret this,but she knew it was likely that she would.
Finding her way to A open road she cautiosly nudged gypsy forward. Thats when she saw a crumpled mess of a sports car. " I doubt the driver survived this. Theres no way girl." She said to gypsy as she debated on moving any closer. Then she heard a scream of pain out of the car.."Great. They survived. Just my luck." Nudging the horses forward towards the mangled mess. She dismounted quickly once she reached the car. Running up to the window she saw a man in the car bleeding quite heavily.
"Can you walk? We cant stay here. The walkers have surely heard the commotion." Sky said kneeling on the drivers side. reaching for her handgun on her hip. She was prepared for walkers or this stranger to turn on her. She wasnt taking chances.

Rick was certainly in alot of pain but for some reason he survived this horrific crash.Its ironic as he thought he was going to meet Dawn through a next accident but not this time.He then opened his eyes and tried to move but the pain was so severe he could barely move his legs.Sitting upside down in this car with his seat belt on really was uncomfortable.
He then heard foot steps of a familiar animal,a horse.Then he saw a very pretty woman come and kneeled on the side of his upside down car and asked if he was alright and that he needs to hurry move out the car because walkers could of heard the crash.He then close his eyes and tried to move once more this time by unbuckling his seat belt.He then immediately fall on the ceiling of his car inside.
"You need to get out of here,am only going to get you killed." He said while closing his eyes taking in the pain from falling on his back.
Sky Saw the man move and unbuckle the seat belt releasing him from the car seat. he hit the ground and she heard him saying to get out of the area. She highly considered leaving him there. He was injured and gonna be a major slow down on her travel. Hearing noises drawing closer she stood to see two walkers approaching in the distance. She kneeled back down looking at the man."To late. Already took the time to come here. I dont have time to debate with you. Can you ride a horse?" She looked back towards the walkers drawing closer. Sky stood and took aim at the walkers killing them with a clean shot to the head. The last thing she wanted to do was fire rounds and make more noise.
She walked towards gypsy grabbed the reigns pulling her closer to the car. She knelt to the ground to give him the last chance for her aide. "Now with the two gunshots any walker in the area will be here soon. Lets go. You can die later if you want but im not gonna let it happen after risking my neck to help you. Grab my hand and lets go." she said extending her hand impatiently. She really didnt have the paitience or time to debate. she didnt know this man he could easily be her worst nightmare.
