Written for TWD-Kink Meme, this Prompt: Shane manages to rescue Rick from that hospital.
What happens then? How have things changed? Bonus points if Shane and Lori still end up sleeping together, and triple bonus points if it eventually turns into a threesome, with Carl on the side as their mutual son who they all care about and look out for. Even more bonus points if you incorporate other characters’ points of view / interactions with Lori/Rick/Shane/Carl while all this soap opera drama is going on. (Yeah, there’s a lot of bonus points in this prompt…)
Written for the Prompt:
After Shane gets back with what Carl needs, Lori doesn't tell him to stay, so he leaves. He doesn't do very well on his own. He's alright until he runs out of ammo and it's harder to scavenge for supplies/gas without a look out. By the time he accepts that he has to go back he's sick, maybe a little malnourished, generally run down and tired.
