TWD - Michonne before Andrea

By lawrencemerrill20

Action / Adventure

On The Road


As Michonne came back to the refugee camp from her weekly food and supplies run, she knew something was different. As she snuck around the dangerous streets of the city, she could hear screams coming from the camp where her family was. She walked in the gates to see the place was apparently overrun by walkers and continued to her family tent where she found what changed her life forever. As she peaked in the tent, she saw her husband Mike and his best friend Terry ripping the flesh from her innocent son, Andre, like father like son, both dead. Michonne screamed, “Life is worthless”, in terror and shock, and put her son out of his misery. That day Michonne made Mike and Terry her walker pets to protect her and punish them for getting intoxicated and not watching her son. After the death of her son, killing was always hard for Michonne.  She made her survival motto “never again” and her goal was not dying.

Three days later Michonne was finally out of the walker infested city of Atlanta. She was just outside in a smaller town where she had found an abandoned house with some supplies to last her a couple of days. During the first night in the house she began to search through the rooms to make sure there were no bloodthirsty walkers hidden in the rooms. As she went down into the dark and musty basement, she could hear the moans of the dead and the smell was death. It was the decaying odor of human corpses. She quickly slayed the dead and continued on her search upstairs. While she was walking up the stairs, she called, “Is anyone here?” She got no response and continued up the hardwood stairs. Suddenly, she heard the distinct sound of a shotgun being cocked. She quickly yelled,“I don’t want any trouble, we can work something out!” To her solace she was answered by a little girl who then opened the door and smiled. “I’m Mary and I’m 11 years old, nice to meet you,” the little girl said. Michonne was astonished and solaced that it was not someone dangerous who was trying to kill her. Michonne responded, “Well, nice to meet you too. My name is Michonne.” This was the start of an easy come easy go relationship and friendship between the two. Three weeks later Michonne and Mary had left the house and were in search of a place of safety which was their main concern and was very hard to find in the apocalypse. Safety in the apocalypse is trying not to step on a crack on a infinite road. As the two survivors continued on the journey, they picked up the sound of many walkers nearby. They didn’t think much of it, because they had heard it before. But, as soon as they got a little further into the woods, they saw the herd of the dead and they were instantly spotted by the walkers. They began to run out of the woods onto the road to see what was coming at them, but they were suddenly surrounded and enclosed by the herd of walkers. Michonne spotted an easily accessible tree to climb and said, “Mary, over here, quick climb the tree, let’s go now!”  Michonne was able to climb the tree deftly and was safe from the herd, but Mary was struggling to climb up. As the dozens of walkers closed in, Mary was almost to the top when a walker grabbed her foot.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

petew25: I have been reading WW2 novels for years and am a retired Marine pilot. Though the plot in some ways reminded me of the Gregory Peck classic leadership movie, "Twelve O'Clock High" I thought the author did a good job overall. The plot was believable and the characters were as well. In some places...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Jordi Roig Avellanet: The first one really took me up for a ride and surprised me really pleasently. This one, up until now, has been amazing too. The characters and their powers are very curious and I'd like to see where all this intense dark plotting goes. I hope it gets finished.
