PostSubject: House Guest (Rick and Raven)   Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:32 pm

Rick had decided that it was about time for Raven to come and meet the rest of the group, including little baby Sophia. He knew that she was rather excited at the prospect of seeing baby Sophia but much less so about all of the others. But in the end she would come around he had no doubt.

However, he wasn't really hopeful that they would survive if they all went to her part of the prison. With only three of them in the entire wing of the prison she had gotten incredibly territorial and angry, especially when Daryl took something from her collection. And to be honest he didn't trust the rest of the group to keep to themselves and not try and take at least one or two things from the collection.

So Rick had come alone to her section of the prison to invite her to come to their section of the prison. Surprisingly enough there was a path between the two of them, all they had to do was going through the exercise yard. And Rick had taken that opportunity to work up an appetite for the meal that was being prepared for Raven's arrival. How? Oh by clearing the couple dozen Walkers in the exercise yard.

Opening the door to Raven's maximum security wing, he stood in the doorway and looked around for her. Not seeing her immediately he knocked loudly on the door,

"Raven?" he called out, "It's Rick. I thought you might like to come and meet the group, we're having spagetti and meatballs."

Raven was swinging on the homemade tyre swing she had made in the third floor of the maximum security area, she liked this part of it best, it was where her garden was and it was almost like a little playground. Maybe one day when she was older, little baby Sophia would enjoy using this swing too? Or if they had to move, maybe Raven could build her another one? Yes she was certain that she would enjoy the swing.

Although she was upstairs she could hear when someone knocked on the floors below because it echoed, pricking her ear up and hearing that it was Rick who was knocking on the door, Raven grinned and hopped off the swing, moving to snatch up Betty before heading down the stairs. She had been looking forwards to seeing Rick again, so much so she had been practicing controlling herself better, because she wanted to hold his little baby Sophia.

As she came down the stairs she ended up behind Rick and she grinned;

"Boo!" Raven shouted playfully "I would enjoy very much having spaghetti and meatballs, I haven't had them in a long time, just...lettuce and...tomatoes."

Almost retreating into her own thoughts for a minute Raven stared at the ceiling before smiling again and slinging Betty over her shoulders, she was wearing a little guard so that the blades wouldn't dig into her skin, it made it a lot more comfortable to carry.

"I will have to meet the rest of your group I suppose." she sighed "I hope that they haven't been fed any bad stories about me, because we all know they aren't true." Raven teased with a wicked grin.

Rick had been able to spot Raven coming down the stairs out of the corner of his eye but he decided to humour her and not react at all. He had found that she rather liked surprising people. When she playfully shouted he actually jumped. Not because he was shocked but because loud noises tended to be bad nowadays,

"You're a little devil sometimes you know that?" he teased her before grinning a little bit, "Well Hershel has been slaving over a hot stove all day with them. The meat is from cans but the tomato sauce isn't and the pasta is good."

Noting that she was taking the chainsaw with her but in a little protective casing so she wouldn't cut herself acidentally. When she commented about stories he chuckled nervously,

"Well there were a few horror stories thrown around before we met you but they were all in good fun." he told her, quick to add the last part. He held out an arm like a gentleman, "Now madame, may I escort you across this feild of slaughter that I created on my way over?"

Leading her across the bloodied exercise yard, kicking the remains of a Walker out of the way of the door, he held the door open to his side of the prison for her. Once she was inside he called out,

"Hershel!" he called out, "We've got a guest!"

Leading her to what had become the dining area, Rick smiled when he saw Hershel working on a cooker that they had moved out of the prison's actual kitchen. Thankfully it was electric so it worked just fine with the generator going. Hershel tested the sauce from the giant vat of the stuff before turning to greet her with a friendly smile,

"Hershel Greene, a pleasure to meet you Miss Raven." he greeted her in a friendly manner, "Would yer like some italian cheese with yours?"

Raven found she was more than a little playful when it came to Rick, and she quite liked it, she hadn't been playful around anybody for a long long time even before she was put in this prison she had her fair share of sadness and heart ache. Now, she had come to accept her madness and she was trying to adjust, now that she had some people who might actually be worth trying to do that for. She supposed she'd find that out today.

"I try." she teased "Well it sounds like a right gourmet meal, compared to what we're used to having, and its hot, I'm looking forwards to having a hot meal, my camp stove ran out of gas a few weeks back." Raven sighed softly.

Blinking when Rick held his arm out for her Raven rather hesitantly looped her arm with his, to be honest she didn't know why he had done what he did but she supposed that he was just trying to be nice. Whistling as she stepped through all the walker carcasses, Raven tilted her head to one side at a particularily mangled corpse. Well...he really was more like her than she thought he would be.

"This is some fine handy work, I should congratulate you." she grinned "Although I suppose you just didn't want to go around the long way to my block, and decided to create a shortcut?"

More than a little nervous when she entered the new block, Raven took a few minutes to stand in the entrance and familiarise herself, letting her arm slip out of Rick's. Her attention was snapped back however when the man called Hershel actually talked to her, and she couldn't help but let her lips twitch up into a small smile, he was cute, like a grandpa or Santa Claus.

"P-pleased to meet you too." she replied, thoroughly bewildered, nobody had been pleased by meeting her in...well years "I'm Raven Scott, and uhm...sure I'll go for some cheese."

Rick was glad to see that she was a lot more vibrant when he was around her without the added presence of a "stealer" as she called Daryl. He chuckled a little bit when she mentioned that it would be like a gourmet meal compared to what they normally all got. He had to agree. Sometime during the winter he had gotten to the point where he couldn't stand the sight of baked beans, much less eat them. But they were one of the most popular types of canned goods,

"It does sound like a nice little feast doesn't it? Well apparently Hershel says that if he can get better ingredients he can do stuff like this more often." he told her before raising an eyebrow, "Well what size is it? We've got plenty of refills for camp stoves but we don't use them anymore. You're welcome to them if you don't want to share the electric cooker with us."

When she accepted his hand he blinked once before smiling wider. He had actually been doing it for some light hearted humour, fully expecting her to just ignore him. When she actually accepted it made him smile happily to himself,

"Why thank you my dear, I decided that I wasn't feeling hungry enough yet so I worked up an appetite before coming to get you." he explained before laughing a little bit, "That wasn't the reason but at least we do now have a good shortcut."

Seeing that Hershel and Raven seemed to be getting along, Rick left the room real quick to go and round up the others who were eating with them. Hershel smiled,

"Miss Scott or just Raven?" he asked politely before nodding a little bit, "Alright then, we've gotten a bowl of the stuff for the occassion. I'll put it next to your bowl so you can help yourself to it first."

Rick returned at that moment with Carl and Beth. He gestured to Carl and the teen smiled a little bit to Raven,

"Pleased to meet you Raven, I'm Carl Grimes." he introduced himself before Beth did likewise, in a much quieter voice. Carol, Maggie, Oscar, Axel and Glenn all came in next, all giving polite greetings as they sat down at the table. Carol handed the baby Sophia to Rick, he held the baby carefully in his arms before settling her into a highchair they'd found. Pulling out a chair, he gestured for Raven to sit,

"After you Raven, you are our guest after all." he explained before gently tickling Sophia, causing the tiny baby to gurgle happily, "Sophia says hi I think."

Raven was feeling more than a little bit disorientated at the moment she had never had so many people introduce themselves to her, and being this nice to her! Rick had even touched her and she hadn't gone off the deep end at him, she must have been onto something with the techniques she had been using because they appeared to be working wonders for her.

Immediately she took a liking to Hershel, he was such a sweet old man, and she hoped that he would remain that way, she would have hated to have put Betty through him if he was mean to her. Noting that he didn't have a leg she tilted her head to one side and rather rudely stared until she remembered her manners and coughed lightly.

"Just Raven is fine." she stated softly, nobody had called her Miss. Scott since her attourney had given up hope of trying to represent her to be honest, Miss Scott made her sound far too posh to be applied to her "Uhm...thank you. Thats very...nice."

When each person introduced themselves to her she blinked and merely stared at them all with wide eyes, trying her best not to feel very panicked, Raven concentrated on trying to remember everyone's names, instead of the feelings that she was squashing down and it seemed to work for the most part.

"Nice to meet you all." Raven stated in a rather bewildered manner, it was just so surreal to her!

What was even more surreal was when Rick pulled a chair out for her, nobody had done that in ages, probably because she hadn't been around anyone for ages, and even when she was she wasn't the hottest of dates and so manners weren't really on the top of the cards. Sitting down on the chair she took off Betty from her shoulder, removed the metal guard from under her shirt, and hung her from the strap on the back of the chair.

"Thank you." she smiled lightly, and when she saw Baby Sophia her smile grew larger and she almost wanted to hold her in her arms right now, the adorable little laugh made her heart melt, and she swiftly realised - she loved babies! "Oh she's so beautiful...aren't you...aren't you?" Raven spoke in the patented baby voice.

Rick had to admit that it was rather amusing to see the big bad Raven looking so bewildered and so confused at people merely saying hello and then their names. It was nice to see that she wasn't just a killing machine like some of the group had thought/feared. She was a lovely woman by his reconning. He smiled a little bit at Hershel though, the older man was being as polite as he was to any other member of the group, not treating her any differently to how he treated anyone else,

"Alright then dear, Raven it is." Hershel agreed as he began to plate up the food into the bowls, Beth helping her father by holding the bowls. Beth presented the first bowl to Raven and passed her the bowl of finely grated Italian cheese as well, "I hope it's good and I hope you're not allergic to anything. I had some time on my hands and some spices for the first time in almost two years... I might have gone a little over the top."

The rest of the group seemed to be feeling a little bit awkward, not sure what to say beyond introductions. However, that quickly changed when the food arrived for all of them and the table became rather animated with life. It was like a large, disfunctional, family gathering if Rick was honest. Carl was trying to flirt with a lightly blushing Beth while Hershel looked on with an expression half-way between annoyed and amused. Carol was chatting away to Axel, who seemed to have zoned out half way through the conversation and Glenn and Maggie were making eyes at each other. Rick turned to Raven with a small smirk,

"Sorry about this." he explained, "Dinner time is a chance for those of us not on watch to relax and act like none of this is going on... no Walkers and all that. Its fun for a little while."

Chuckling a little bit at her little baby voice, Rick finished off his meal before standing up. Helping baby Sophia out of the highchair, he gently held her out for Raven to take,

"You want to hold her?" he asked with a smile, "She seems pretty hungry... you could feed her from the bottle if you wanted."

Raven's mouth popped open when she was called 'dear' my god did these people not know that she was...well she wasn't normal in any sense of the word? But they were still treating her so well, despite what they might have heard about her from the other men in the prison, of course, she had almost done a Hannibal Lecter once in the food hall...so...it wasn't all completely wrong.

"No Im...I'm not allergic to anything except strawberries." she stated with a small smile "I am sure I will enjoy it very much, it is better than salad, which is what I would have been having."

Taking the bowl from Beth she flashed her a grin, that probably came out a little bit more wicked than she really meant it to, but she was sure that she wouldn't scare the girl. Picking up her fork she twirled the spaghetti around it and very cautiously cut up a meatball and speared a peice on the end. As soon as she tasted it she smiled lightly, it was a very nice meal!

"It tastes lovely Hershel." Raven complimented "The spices make the sauce taste even better, a shame Rick didn't mention you were making tomato sauce, I could have given you some fresh ones."

For a moment she just looked at the group, they were interacting so well together and it must be nice to be part of a family like this...she couldn't remember a time that she had been with a family or even a group where they were all so happy to be eating with each other. Smiling softly at Rick she shook her head; "It is nice, just to hear others talking."

Looking down at her plate, she almost pouted, she had eaten it all already? As soon as Rick asked her if she wanted to hold baby Sophia Raven nodded her head, and swiftly took her into her arms, she was so delighfully soft and warm! Running her fingers across the soft little tufts of hair she had, Raven bit her lip and nuzzled her nose with the babies.

"You are just so cute aren't you? Mhm yes you are." she grinned "I would love to, if you know...you're alright with that." Raven asked, hoping it would be, she just couldn't get enough of this little sweet talc smelling thing.

Rick was glad to see that she was making an effort to get along with everyone, even if her grin had made Beth feel a little bit awkward. That was only because she was the only one to give Beth a smile so it was a good kind of awkward he found. Chuckling a little bit at the friendly conversation going on between Hershel and Raven, Rick sipped at his drink as the others chatted and ate their meals. Hershel glanced at Rick when she mentioned fresh tomatoes,

"Yes Rick did mention that you had a garden." Hershel said with a small smile, "I'd love to cook up some of them if you ever want me to. We also have a barbeque out the back so we could do some lovely vegetable squewers if you wanted."

Even as he handed Sophia over to Raven, Rick was aware that some of the people at the table were giving him looks. Appartently they didn't agree that it was a good idea. Thankfully for Raven and her love of the little baby, their opinions on the matter, while noted, was not something he really cared about,

"Yeah sure, Hershel was warming it up in some nearly boiling water for a bit right Hershel?" he asked the elderly man, who merely smiled and nodded his head. Rick took the bottle out of the boiling water and tested it by splashing some on the back of his hand. Seeing that it was perfect, he handed it to Raven, "There you go Raven."

Carol seemed to find her voice and looked between Raven, Rick and baby Sophia before she looked back up at Rick,

"Er Rick..." she began, getting his attention, "Are you sure that's a good idea?"

Rick raised an eyebrow,

"Why wouldn't it be?" he challenged her, causing Maggie to pick up the argument,

"Well, no offence, but Raven doesn't seem like the type to be gentle." she reasoned with a small frown, "I just don't think you should give your baby over to her like that."

Rick raised his eyebrow further still before shaking his head and looking at the naysayers in the group. He looked them each in the eye in turn,

"I appreciate your concern for Sophia." he told them before adding, "But as you've pointed out... she is my baby."

There was finality in his voice that seemed to suggest this was over, even though Carol and Maggie both looked like they would like very much to speak up. Rick collected some cans of coca cola from the supplies, handing them out to everybody. He smirked a little bit at Raven and Sophia,

"Awwww I think she likes you. She's settling right down to sleep for you."

Raven smiled lightly, she was bursting with pride about the fact that she might be able to help the people in the other little group by giving them some of her fresh vegetables, she really did think it was a good idea to make a garden and it just showed her that she sometimes, could actually do something useful. Even though they were only in pots and not in the soil she had a fair number of plants, so they gave as much as needed.

"Why don't you just come and see if there's anything you like." she smiled softly "I have some sprouts growing, although you wont thank me for that Carl...there's a tyre swing I made so...feel free to come use it sometimes if you'd like to."

Of course, she knew that she was inviting people to come into her home whenever they liked really and she thought that she had better fix that, coming in when she wasn't expecting them really wasn't a good idea; "Just, make sure you tell me you're there before you go on up."

Taking the bottle from Rick, Raven made sure that she supported the head of Sophia right, as she put the teat of the bottle against the baby's mouth, she must have been hungry because she began feeding immediately much to Raven's delight. What made her smile even more was that while she was holding the bottle up Sophia's little hand held onto her thumb, Raven smiled softly down at the baby.

Although she could hear the conversation going on, she didn't think it was right to butt in until Rick was finished;

"I won't pretend to know what Axel and Oscar have told you about me, but, rest assured," she glared harshly at the two women, her glares were...well they had been described as frightening and she hoped they were, these two deserved it "I'm not Satan in a dress, I don't intend to dunk Sofia's head in the boiling stove water, so be at peace ladies."

Treating them to her sickeningly sweet smile, she squeezed Sofia's little arm softly, she was almost done with her bottle, which meant she had to burp her before she settled down to sleep otherwise she'd feel sick;

"Ah ah ah not yet little one, you haven't finished your bottle." she hummed softly "Well I know quite a lot about babies, I read tonnes and tonnes of books about them before I came here."

Hershel and Rick were both pleased that she was offering them access to her garden, Rick because it meant she was trusting them more and Hershel because his newest hobby was cooking now. The older man smiled happily and nodded,

"Don't mind if I do." he agreed before smiling, "We've got a farming project out the front too. Got some seeds planted but not much else. When it's good for harvesting you're welcome to have some."

Rick had to admit that it was nice of her to offer the use of her tire swing to those who were young enough to enjoy it. Of course he made a mental note to enforce her little rule about telling her when they were going to enter. He could see that Carl and Beth were both pretty excited about something so casual, something so normal,

"If you don't mind I'd love to use it sometimes." Carl told her with a happy little smile, "Where abouts in your wing of the prison is it? It's free from Walkers isn't it?"

Rick watched as Raven fed Sophia, holding the baby perfectly to do so. She seemed like a complete natural at holding the child and he had to smile at that. Carol and Maggie looked a little bit uncomfortable about the whole thing but he honestly didn't care what they thought. When she explained that she wasn't as bad as the stories that they had heard, Maggie nodded in acceptance but Carol bristled,

"They told us how you had to be put into isolation because you were too dangerous to be around other hyper-violent prisoners." she declared with a small scowl, "You don't deserve to be near a baby if you're like that!"

Rick stared at Carol flatly for a moment, causing the woman to flinch,

"What did I just say Carol?" he asked her quietly, "Who I leave my child in the care of is my business, not yours."

When she explained that she had read tonnes of books on babies Rick was intrigued,

"Why did you read so much about babies?" he asked with a small smile, "That is, if you don't mind me asking."

Raven tilted her head to one side when she heard that he was going to be able to give her some of the things that they were growing when the seeds took, that was good, maybe they were growing things like potatoes and cabbages that she couldn't grow because the pots she had weren't deep enough or effiecient enough to grow as many as she wanted to.

"Thank you, I will be sure to ask you if I require anything. What have you planted?" she asked, vaguely interested, and it felt good to be talking to someone again, talking about something that was totally normal and in another situation even perhaps mundane, but it felt good to Raven.

When Carl asked about where her tyre swing was she grinned, at least he might actually think about using it, she had to admit she thought that the group was nicer than she would have expected, apart from those two girls and she could take them out in no time if they continued to glare and look at her the way that they did. Betty would have lots of fun doing it too.

"Its on the third floor of the max security ward, so it's very safe, I clean it out regularily of walkers." Raven grinned "So you don't have to worry about that."

Even though she was feeding Sophia and trying her best not to do anything a baby wouldn't want to see, her eye twitched when the woman said what she did and if she had her arms free Betty would have had a new pretty coat of red all over her, but, she was being forced not to use violence which was...oddly frustrating for her. Although she would have to get used to it.

"Funny...you believe someone who I've never spoken to in my whole life instead of asking me about what happened?" she laughed harshly "And, if the stories they told you are true," Raven shot Carol another glare "Do you think it's a good idea to speak to me like that?"

Hearing Rick stick up for her Raven calmed down again and she placed the now finished bottle on the table in front of her;

"Oh you're such a good girl, yes you are." turning Sophia so that she was facing her chest, Raven patted her on the back lightly, seeing if she needed burping before she settled down to sleep, when she did, she allowed her to settle back down in her arms again "Now you can go to sleep, because you're tried aren't you? Yes, I think so."

When Rick asked her why she had read all those books, Raven's eyes widened a little bit, the memories were still there and still ever so poignant, however, she merely coughed softly and brought herself back to the conversation at hand;

"Well I had to, if you're going to be a mom you have to read the books now don't you?" she asked Sofia, attempting to make the rather painful statement not as painful by directing her answer to a baby "I had a little girl just like you, mhm her name was Charlotte."

Rick had to admit that talking about gardening bored him but the fact that she was talking about something so casual and normal with Raven and Hershel was good for them. It gave them something in common to bond over to some degree. Hershel smiled a little bit wider when she asked what they had planted while Rick groaned playfully. Shooting him a playful glare, Hershel smiled to her happily,

"Well Raven we have quite a few types of vegetables growing at the moment." he told her, quite proud of his little garden, "We have potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, cabbage, lettice, brocolli and some herbs like mint and rosemary."

Carl was happy to hear that the area was usually free from Walkers but he could see that Beth was watching him rather intently so he puffed his chest up slightly,

"Awwww really? No Walkers?" he pretended to be a little bit disappointed, "I was hoping I could take the chance to work on shooting them while on the swing."

Beth commented on how brave Carl was for wanting to do that and he brightly brightly, earning him another half-annoyed, half-amused, look from Hershel. Carol seemed to get the message though and was silent after Raven brought it into perspective that if she was as bad as Carol said then she'd go after her. And she hadn't yet, despite all the insults so Carol was wise enough to be quiet about it.

Seeing her being so good with Sopha, he smiled a little bit. She was a natural with the baby. To be fair the only person who was anywhere near as good with her was Beth and Hershel said that was because maternal instincts were inherited in her family. When she said that she had HAD a baby, past tense, Rick paused for a moment. Maggie took a plunge and asked,

"If you don't mind me asking..." she paused for a moment before continuing, "Where's little Charlotte now? She safe with her father or something?"

Raven could see that Hershel was happy that he was able to bring some fresh vegetables into the group's diets, some of them looked like they needed it they had really thin arms and figures and they seemed to be sort of tired and fatigued which comes from the lack of vitamins and minerals she supposed. Humming a little she tilted her head to one side;

"I would have tried to grow them, but my pots aren't deep enough and it would have been a waste." she stated with a small smile on her lips "Maybe we can pool our efforts sometime, share and share alike."

Raising an eyebrow at the little interaction between Carl and Beth and she couldn't help but think how sweet it was, young love, of course it would all go wrong when they got older so they should enjoy it while they could. Love always became a horrible series of affairs when you got older. Or it had been in her experience anyway, although she was sure her experience wasn't like the vast majority.

"Im sure I could leave some in there, if you were that eager, although I assume your parents would be happier, if the area was 'walker free'." she smirked a little bit "Am I right?"

Although she had mentioned her darling Charlotte in passing she was not ready at all to talk about her in any detail, but, it was a little bit odd, she wanted to be able to talk about it, but it was one of the women who didn't like her, why should she tell her about such a sensitive issue? Maybe she would understand a little bit more about her, and stop thinking she was...well okay she was actually as bad as the stories when pushed but, not when it came to Sophia.

"I don't know where it is, but, I hope that it's not with that man, she'd be better off at the bottom of a ditch somewhere than in his company." she muttered, her gaze fixed on the little sweet baby in her hands, she never had a chance to know her baby, she had been taken away from her as soon as she was born, barely even had chance to hold her.

Handing Sofia back to Rick, now she was sound asleep, Raven stood up from her chair;

"I should be leaving now." she stated softly "Thanks for the meal."

This was exactly the reason why Rick was listening to a conversation about gardening even though gardening bored the hell out of him. She was willing to pool resources with them and that was amazing. Hershel looked to Rick and Rick smiled a little bit, giving the older man a nod of approval. Hershel smiled wider than before and nodded,

"Well then I'll start helping you if you'll help me too." he told her happily, patting his leg stump forlornly, "I can plant just fine and it's one of my few pleasures now. If you'd like we can expand the patch that the group has at the moment and use some of your seeds, we could have much wider areas for tomatos and such."

Beth and Carl blushed together at the thought of their parents, turning to Rick and Hershel. Rick just chuckled a little bit and shook his head,

"Walker-free is the way to go. Carl and Beth can handle Walkers easily..." he said, causing them to both inflate with pride, "But it's how they'd deal with the adrenaline afterwards when they would be alone. Near a cell with a bed in it."

Beth and Carl blushed even brighter and Hershel raised an eyebrow. It was rather clear that Rick had hit the nail on the head when it came to their little teenage fantasies there. Chuckling a little bit, he shook his head ruefully. The comment about Charlotte, Raven's child, being completely out of her reach was bad enough. But hearing that she was better of dead than with her father made the mood in the room drop by quite a lot. Maggie was sympathetic but curious,

"How old would she be?" she asked gently, "In case we run into anyone her age."

Rick accepted Sophia back from Raven with a small smile as she stood up,

"Let me and Sophia walk you back." he suggested, cradling his baby lovingly in his arms, "Least we can do seeing as you're still our guest."

Raven picked up Betty from the chair and she fitted her shoulder guard back on underneath her shirt, allowing the bloodied blades of the chainsaw to rest on her shoulder again before she made herself completely ready to leave the cell block. Although she had had a nice time here bringing up her daughter was something that really had knocked her out of shape, she knew she should leave to get herself under control before she did something stupid.

When she heard the woman, Maggie ask how old her little girl would be, Raven smiled softly, it would always be one of her biggest regrets not getting to know her daughter, but she did always write out a birthday card on the day she was born and send it to her. Whether it got to her or not she didn't know, but Raven liked to think it was the thought that counted.

"She would be five, but I doubt that she'll be anywhere around here." she stated with a small smirk pulling her lips, she had moved away from that place a long time ago, but unfortunately her troubles followed with her.

Although she was keen to get going, she wasn't about to go storming off from the table because something sensitive had been touched on. Raven waited for a little while for Rick to be ready, before smiling at him a little bit, she was glad he was willing to follow her;

"Thanks Rick." Raven smiled, "I might see you all again sometime."

Bowing her head to the people still sitting at the table, Raven opened the door and held it open for Rick and Sophia, as she began to walk out to the exercise yard, the bodies were still there and were beginning to smell even worse than before.

"You have some nice people in your group." she stated with a small smile "Apart from the Stealer and that short haired woman I would have thoroughly enjoyed that little excursion."

Maggie and the rest of the group accepted the answer. Just because she was in this prison, didn't mean she had actually come from anywhere in the surrounding area. When she told them the age of the girl they all memorised it and Maggie smiled faintly,

"Well stranger things have happened." she told Raven with a small nod, "We'll keep an eye out anyway. Maybe she was taken in by another group of survivors or something?"

They all waved her goodbye as Rick walked her over to the maximum security wing, rocking Sophia gently as he did so. She wasn't even stirring at all at the movement,

"You do good work with babies, she's out like a light. My group has some nice people in yeah." he chuckled a little bit at the exceptions she pointed out, "Daryl is a good guy once you get to know him. And Carol... well... Okay Carol is a bit of a bitch but every group has one."

He smiled lightly at her and tipped and imaginary hat when they reached her door,

"This is your door ma'm." he joked with a wink, "I'll see you tomorrow yeah? Hershel will want to see you about the garden and we can go Walker hunting."
