Summary:

What if the trip to rescue Beth had been successful? What if instead of despairing in failure, Daryl carries Carol out of Grady Memorial Hospital and the victory leaves both of them with a renewed sense of hope? 

It'll take them nearly 600 miles to get from Atlanta to Richmond.  Along the way, Carol and Daryl finally get a chance to start over. Ensemble fic, but obviously Caryl focused.

Post 6x14. Alternative version of Season 7. Slow burn.

Daryl will do whatever he can to help her, even when trouble back in Alexandria threatens to push them into war.
