Story Notes:

Missing moment from episode 6x09, “No Way Out”. Spoilers up to that episode. This is after Daryl saved the town from a herd of walkers using a grenade launcher, and goes off canon while he's getting his cut stitched from when he got stabbed by one of Negan's gang trying to steal the fuel tanker.  

I got the idea for this story after reading the superb “Let Morning Wash It All Away” by Lilabut, which is another missing moment from 6x09 fic. You should all go check it out because it’s gorgeous.

Dedicated to higgsboson (because she deserves an extra Christmas present this year) and littleshelly0619 (because her enthusiasm persuaded me that posting on Christmas was a good idea).
