if Carol is still recovering from her injuries by the time that Daryl
arrives at the Kingdom, and he finds her in the infirmary, sound
asleep on one of the beds. She doesn’t stir when he enters the room,
or when he approaches her. So, tentatively, he sheds his muddy boots
and quietly leans his crossbow against the wall, and climbs onto the
small bed, lying down beside her. There’s hardly room for the two of
them on the mattress, so Daryl moves in close to Carol, and when she
still doesn’t wake up, he starts pressing gentle kisses across her
forehead. She slips into consciousness to the smell of him
surrounding her and the feeling of his lips on her skin.
