After pulling rick from the car They both climbed onto the bay mare and headed off the road back into the woods towards the stream sky had found earlier. The woods seamed peaceful on this fall evening. Despite the events of the day Sky took in the scenery. All the leaves changing between red and yellow with a splash of orange thrown in. Sky had almost forgotten the injured man she rescued from as car not long ago. Before long They arrived at the stream where she had planned to set up camp before. Once rick was off the horse sky climbed down. "Rick. Have a seat lean againt one of these trees. Do not fall asleep im gonna get a small fire going and some water boiling. Look through the front pocket of this bag you should see some tylenol or something light to take the edge off. Cant give you anything stronger til we know you dont have a concussion." Sky said as she sat the bag near a tree and went to find some more sticks and stuff for a fire.
Sky gathered all she could and got a small fire going. Working quickly she removed the saddle and other gear from gypsy and got some water boiling. She kept in mind the stranger she had with her and kept herself on guard. Not that he would be much of a threat at the moment. But she never knew what he could manage. Once she finished around camp she didnt see signs of walker so she pulled a log up and sat infront of Rick. "Now im sorry but these stitches will probably hurt like hell so are you ready for this." Sky said to him. She knew all to well from stitching her own gashes and wounds.

Rick was probably passed out for about 15 to 20 minutes because he woke up looking in the sky as leaves fell from the tree in the woods and the sun started to set he felt like there was hope for this world,hope for all the pain,the betrayals and the coldness of it.He was on the back of Sky's horse leaning on her. He then thought to himself even with the pain,why would she risk her life for a stranger? A stranger who can cost her in the long run? A stranger who can slow her down? He then guess that there were still humanity in the world.
They finally reached at the stream and Sky rest him down and leaned him against a tree and told him she was going to get some wood for a fire.She also indicated to him that there was some Tylenol in the front part of a bag she had next to him.He was barely conscious though, she then left.
He then try to compose himself from the pain to stay conscious and then looked for the medicine in the bag which eventually he found.He then empty out the bottle wasting some on the grass and he picked them up and took two pills.Sky then returned back with alot of wood and then got the fire going.
She then sat in the front of Rick with a needle and black thread and asked him if he is ready to be stitched up.He then thought to himself if she even was a doctor or if she knows what she was doing.At this point he didn't care because he appreciated all she was doing for him.
"Yeah I can manage,do what you have to do Sky."He then closed his eyes and braced for the pain.
When she was gived the go ahead Sky started to stitch the wounds. Needle through skin and bloody flesh working carfully to cause the least amount of discomfort possible. "I'm sure it has crossed your mind that your letting a complete stranger stitch your head back together. I was in no way training to be a docter. Well not for humans anyway. Dont worry i have stitched up my fair share of animals. Its basically the same concept. So its not to hard to master." Sky said as she continued her sewing. She wondered whether or not this guy would be reliable or not. She smelt alcohol on him and she definately didnt need a drunk to babysit. She wasnt sure exactly if she even wanted anyone to travel with.
She had traveled with others since the outbreak over the past couple years. It never lasted she either left because they died or because they tried to kill her. She didnt trust anyone really. How could you trust others these days. The end of time and most survivors you found only survived by killing anything in their paths to stay alive. Snapping out of her thoughts after whats seemed like ages she stitched the final stitch and tied it off. She was impressed with her handy work and reached into he bag pulling out a single shot mini bottle of vodka she had found in her travels. "This is gonna suck." Sky said as she twisted off the top and splashed some over the stitched area. Better to kill off the germs so hopefully the infection stays away. Sky stood and walked away towards the fire. she dropped the needle into the boiling water to sanitize for later.
She looked back at Rick. "So Rick where were you headed? Any place inpaticular?" She said. not that it was her buisness or generally cared to much. She was nosy which often got her into trouble.
Sky then begin stitching Rick's forehead and boy did it hurt but Rick tried to man up and gave a pain sound every now and then.She then told him she use to stitch animals but never humans,not that it truly matter to Rick he was just glad to be treated and for the past almost three years to be in the company of someone alive and not dead.He still couldn't get Dawn out of his mind though just the thought of her in that road made him wonder his sanity.
He then heard a voice and a damn familiar voice once again Dawn.He looked around to see where he was hearing the voice from scanning behind Sky and the stream but saw nothing.The voice then stop,damn that crash really might have done me in Rick thought.Sky finished the last part of the thread through his skull and he thought it was over until she took out a bottle of Vodka which made him look at her with excitement.If only he could just get a taste but he needs to compose himself because he knows he isn't an alcoholic he just drinks more than he used to,who the hell cares anyway you got people out there raping children and killing them after and people wanna judge him for a little buzz he gets every now and then 'fuck em' with their pointed fingers and judgement, a man has to lean on something even if its a little liquor.
She then said something to Rick but he didn't really heard her until she poured the Vodka on his now closed cut. "Motherfucker,shit that hurts."He says while closing his eyes embracing the pain in his way.Sky then walks over to the fire and put the needle she stitched him up with in some boiling water in a pot over the fire.She then asked him where he was going.After he composed himself from the pain he then wondered if he should tell her but decided to anyway.
"To be honest I didn't know.Am not from the States so don't know too much about the place only to just keep driving away from trouble as much as possible.I really appreciate you helping me back there and stitching me up."He says trying to get up from the ground but immediately fell down.Rick really felt helpless after that and wondered if he would ever recover.
Sky watched the man as he attemtped to stand and failed quite miserably. She wanted to laugh but she refrained from it and her face changed from cold to a somewhat concerned look. "Look you arent gonna be getting up and running from much right the moment. Sorry its just not gonna happen. That was a bad accident you went through. So just sit back and relax as much as you can." Sky said in a somewhat suggestive/demanding tone. She reconized that tone all to well. It was the tone of voice her mom would get when she wanted to give her kids the illusion that they had a choice in what they wanted to do. Sky Walked over towards the tree she had hitched gypsy to and unclipped the lead from her. She patted her neck and gypsy walked not far away to a patch of nearby grass.
Turning her attention to the man again. She removed her machete from the holster attached to her horses saddle that was laying on the ground. "Its gonna be dark soon. I wanna wander of and see if i can shoot something to eat. Take this machete. Just incase there are any unwanted visitors." Sky said as he laid the machete on the ground in front of rick. She wasnt to worried about him holding that seeing as she still had her gun on her hip. She turned around and picked up her bow and quiver of arrows. Without saying much else she was off into the woods looking for something to shoot. She had worked up quite a appetite and he was gonna need some food if he was gonna have a speedy recorvery. Thank goodness for all her time learning to track and surviving in the woods.
Following the stream she managed to shoot two squirrels within a half hour time frame. Wasnt much of a meal but its better than nothing she thought. Just as she was gonna head back she saw a few black berry plants near the rivers edge. What a surprise she hadnt seen any berries in quite a while. She knelt down towards bush and gathered what berries she could and headed back to the camp.
After a quiet journey back she went directly to cleaning squirrels. She had a few points where she would glance at Rick. then back to what she was doing. "So your not from here you say. Why are you so far from home? How did you end up in north carolina?" She asked him as she watched the squirrels cook over a fire.
Sky then told Rick to remain still and just relax even though he wanted to argue with her she was right,in his condition he was not able to fight or even run at this point.She then left him a machete to defend himself while she go get some food.Rick grabbed the machete and pulled it closer to him.
Just to think that just about 4 hours ago he was good condition and good health and now he was almost dead from a deadly accident what was all his fault.Sky then left on her hunt.Rick then fell asleep and dream about a house burning to the ground and people trying to get out but they were stuck.Sky was in this dream with him and she was trying her hardest to get out of the house then he pitched up from hearing Sky arriving back from her stepping on a twig.
She then started to clean some squirrels she managed to catch.This girl definitely wasn't new to this whole woods survival thing.She then ask him where he was from and how he got in North Carolina.
"Am from The Bahamas,the island of Grand Bahama.My Now dead Fiancé and I came here on vacation in Jacksonville Florida.During the outbreak we were at a hotel when things got crazy,during the escape she got bitten but I still took her and eventually she turned......I put down.Then ever since I scavenge what I could and kill who tried to kill me and got lost trying to find a boat to get back home." He felt like he was in counseling just finally somebody to talk to.Suddenly though he heard growling sounds and to his shock like over 6 dozens zombies started to head their way from the east like 12 feet away.
"Shit Sky turn around a fucking Horde.Pass me a gun am a marksman,I can shoot at them to by you time to escape." Rick just had to make sure she was safe before him.He actually felt obligated to.
Sky was listening to his story. She figured he had to be from out of the country with his accent. Story time came to a horrible dramatic end when Rick started screaming about walkers and to pass him her gun. She turned around to hear the low rumble of groans and growls from a massive horde. She turned a quickly headed to help Rick up. There werent enough bullets in the clip to take but six of them not dozens. She wasnt gonna leave him behind to die. Grabbing his hand to help him up she placed the gun in his other."I am not gonna leave you here to die. Not gonna happen." Sky said to him. Once he was up She grabbed the machete off the ground and turned to look for her horse who thankfully had enough sence to run away.
"Only shoot if we cant avoid it." Sky said as she Chopped the head nearly off of the closest walker sending it to the ground. She headed north and away from the horde in a quick pace. She would find the horses and circle back for the stuff if the opertunity arose. But she wasnt gonna let anyone die here tonight. "any weapons in your car? If there are we can head that way and hope we can make it out of this mess."
Sky then helped Rick up and hand him her handgun in his next as she walked with him with his arm around her neck to support his balance.She then told him not to waste the bullets,shoot if necessary while she cut a zombie head clean off their body.That didn't stop the rest though they continue to pursue them.Rick then shot one in the head as one jumped at them.
Sky then asked him if he had any weapons in his now wrecked car what can help them in their current situation."That will be a negative buddy.I only traveled with silent weapons to stay discreet.We need to get to that farm so we can be secure from this Horde."
They continued to run through the woods with the Horde still on their tail.Rick then shot a next one as it tried grabbing Sky's leg.Damn these things are fast and more faster then the ones he ever encountered.They then eventually made it to the road.
