After Ezekiel’s death, Carol becomes the ruler of the kingdom. Daryl is Rick’s right hand man. They haven’t seen each other in months. This is how they fell apart and this is how they came back together. (Carol was never married to Ezekiel in any part of this story. He simply chooses her to rule.)

Disclaimer: I don't own them.
I wrote a beautiful, poetic summary for this and then realized it sounded WAY too much like Carol and Ezekiel were married at one point. I'm very sad because I loved it a lot.
Anyway... Please enjoy.
