"How I Protekted Clem by Alvin Junior" is a short story written by Michael Kirkbride[1]. The story is told through Alvin Jr.'s point of view and explains how he saved Clementine in the barn during the events of "Take Us Back". The story was published on Reddit on May 27, 2019.

Plot Synopsis[]

So I decide I'm not gonna do it no matter what she says. Clem's just wrong about this.

She screams and passes out when the axe hits her leg. It might be bad to say it but I was real glad she did because it takes a few more chops to get her leg off and I don't want her to be mad at me.

I know I gotta make fire to cot-cau-seal up the wound. Luckily we got the flint from that cave and hay's like everywhere. I make a small fire and heat up the blade and then I push it on the bloody part and it smells like cooking and it's totally gross so don't tell her.

I check Clem's forehead and she's not cold yet and I start crying again but tell myself to stop because I got more work to do. I use some of the rope to tie around her chopped off leg because that's kind of how Abel did it and I don't have a roll of tape like at James' log.

The easiest part was the monsters actually! I used the wheelbarrow to reach them and just stabbed them through the heads. There was a lot but I did it fast because they're dumb and just came to me.

I used the wheelbarrow again and got Clem in it. Took forever because I'm not big and I'm so tired. I throw guts all over her and check her head again and it's still warm and there's no monsters when I open the barn doors and that's good because it's a real long way to push all this to the school.

But Clem did it for me when I got shot and I'm just going to do the same thing because she always believes in me and that's why I do too.
