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.

William Po: Enjoyed the characters and story of the USAF during WWII. Author seems knowledgeable about planes and situations faced by bomber personnel. Also the suffering the air war caused on both sides to civilians.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

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...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

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...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down.
