Finding Carol in the slaughterhouse was the end of it, or so Daryl thought. But things are much worse though he could have ever imagined ... the unexpected return of someone from her past could be the final blow that breaks her. Can he help her hold on?

AU around the time frame of "The Same Boat". Also, implied timeline/storyline liberties taken in earlier season.

So I split up what was going to be 1 last chapter into 2. I needed more time to resolve all of the angst I created in the first chapter. I promise this one is less angsty and more concentrated on the feels; I will dig them out of their pit of woe.

Chapter inspired by the song "Fade" by Lewis Capaldi. I'm in LOVE with this song!

Sorry for the delay in updating, real life decided to dump itself all over me the past week and then my muse went to play hide and seek. But I found her ... thankfully.
