One Second For Her Heart To Break

Honestly Enid's reaction To Carls Death was heartbreaking.

It takes one second for her whole world to shatter, for her heart to break.

One second she's running down the hill beside Carol, anxious to see some of her friends in Alexandria, anxious to see Carl her boyfriend.

The look on Daryl's face causes her to come to a complete halt.

She, Maggie and Carol… they all know that look, the look that someone's has when they're about to tell others that someone is dead.

Carol asks who had died and Daryl hesitates for a second before the name rolls of his tongue.


The second he says that her heart breaks.

Tears form in her eyes and she starts to shake. She raises her hand to her mouth just as the gut wrenching sobs start to leave her month. Her knees go weak and she sinks to the ground, sobbing, screaming and her eyes stinging from the tears that pour down her pale face.

People begin to walk away from her. She doesn't care she just remains on the ground crying at the loss of her boyfriend, her best friend, her person.

She tries to stifle her cries with a hand but the realization that Carl is died and that they will never get to have the life together that they had talked about, they would never get married, have kids…hell she'd never get to hear his voice one more time.

She feels someone envelop her in a tight hug and she knows right away that it's Maggie.

As Maggie holds her, she continues to cry and scream. Her heart is broken and she doesn't know if she can survive.

One second was all it took. It takes one second for her heart to brake.
