Hi guys! I finally have a new story for you all :D. So I had gotten this idea while shadowing a Physical Therapist. I'll try to keep it as realistic as possible, but I apologize in advance if I get anything wrong in regards to the medicinal world of PT.
Your reviews are greatly appreciated! I'd love to hear from y'all what you think.

Okay so I wasn't planning on getting this done till monday but I realized very quickly that that would be mean of me to extend the angst through the weekend, so I was able to punch this out for y'all
We finally learn the extent of what happened with Sophia as well as more of Carol's background. AND FEEEELLS!
I sincerely appreciate the comments, hope you enjoy!

Updated two days in a row y'all. I'm on a roll!
So this is the entire first date, filled with some angst and a lot of fluffy.
10. Chapter 10 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 7] (3785 words)
This is set just a little ways into the future. Sophia has a rough time but Carol and Daryl are there to save the day for her.
I know this is slower than some stories but I love taking the time to describe certain steps into their growing relationship. I'm a hopeless romantic that way XD.
Fluffy with a little bit of angst. Enjoy loves!
11. Chapter 11 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 4] (4239 words)
So you know how when you sometimes write chapters that you switch parts of the chapter from the middle to the beginning... then back to the middle again... yeah that was me on this one XD
This one is a bit longer to make up for me skipping a day again, and a little bit on the angsty side, but very sweet as well. Enjoy loves!
Chapter Warnings: Mentions of non-consent/rape and abuse
12. Chapter 12 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 3] (4125 words)

Just some nice fluff and introducing characters to one another. I love your comments, thank you so much for being so interested.
15. Chapter 15 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 3] (4690 words)
My god, I was going to punch this chapter out of it killed me XD. Btw, I thought that new Caryl hug in the promo was adorable, and it gave me a ton of Caryl feels... even if the dialogue needed work.
Anyways, Day 1 of our favorite couple's weekend getaway. This trip will be spaced out in a few chapters b/c I feel we deserve to see one-on-one time with them.
Get ready for some slight angst, fluff, and little smuttyness :D. Enjoy loves!
16. Chapter 16 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 5] (3496 words)
Hey guys! Sorry, life got in the way so this might be the only chapter this week. I'm going to WSC Atlanta as well, hopefully I'll have enough time for another chapter next week but we'll see.
So this is officially day 1 of their romantic getaway. Enjoy loves!
17. Chapter 17 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 6] (4771 words)

But anyways, this is basically just a whole lotta smut, b/c they deserve it!
18. Chapter 18 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 4] (3438 words)
Hi guys. Thank you so much for sticking around to read this story, I know I've been slacking a bit. I'll try harder to get these chapters out.
I was going to have one more chapter of their vacation but it wound up being extremely long, so I cut it to two more. Nothing but fluff and smut
19. Chapter 19 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 5] (3582 words)
Okay guys, chapter warning for this one. It'll be a very brief flashback in italics, like what Daryl had before, but it's slightly intense, so trigger warning.
Otherwise, everything else is just fluff, slight smut, and all around sweetness and comfort.
Chapter Warning: Past non-consent/rape, violence
20. Chapter 20 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 3] (3296 words)
Hi guys. This chapter has been kicking my bootie all over the place. I tried to help my writer's block by writing a new separate story... and now I just want to write that instead of this story XD.
Anyways, hope you like it. It's another filler, but things will definitely pick up in the next few chapters.
21. Chapter 21 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 5] (4277 words)
So things are going to be picking up for our favorite couple the next few chapters. This is basically a fluffy and smutty preparation for what's to come.

24. Chapter 24 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 5] (3301 words)
I am so freaking sorry that it took this long to get a chapter out. My computer updated and I wound up losing my draft for the chapter... so after I had a meltdown, I wrote this up again XD.
I'm a little iffy on this chapter b/c I changed it so many times. I really hope you like it.
Italics are used for the nightmares.
25. Chapter 25 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 5] (3633 words)
Got some feels coming for ya. Don't worry, all happy in the end!
26. Chapter 26 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 4] (4009 words)
Alright kiddos. This is a little bit of a filler, but it fills up a few little plot holes if you look close enough.
27. Chapter 27 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 5] (3486 words)
Alright guys, this one's a little tough b/c we're going to be dealing with more of Daryl's story overseas, as well as another secret from Carol's past.

Alright y'all. Just a heads up, I'll be starting a new job wednesday so my time will be more limited to write this, but I'll do my best to update at least once a week.
This one's a little on the rough side with angst and violence, but I promise this'll be the final ending of Daryl and Carol's torture.
Chapter warning: Violence
31. Chapter 31 by LeeLeeWoflpack [Reviews - 1] (3661 words)
