5. Gally x
I practically skip towards my best friend Gally with, in my opinion, the best news I've ever received since I arrived in the box. The builder was the only person I really trusted and felt happy with. The other gladers teased us and called us the lovebirds but we never really put a label on our relationship because it is too complicated with the maze and everything. And what I am about to tell him will only make it more complicated.
"Surprise!" He yells swinging me around. I gasp and smack his chest with my fist.
"My God Gally! You gave me a heart attack!" I widen my eyes.
"Newt said you had some news?" He smiles and intertwines our hands, his huge ones enveloping mine.
"Minho agreed! I'm going to be a runner!" I screamed while squeezing his hand.
"Really that's great news!" He grins and swings his arm around me while I rest my head on his chest. I sigh. "I knew you'd do it! You're amazing and so brave and fantastic." I blush and stare down at my feet, smiling slightly.
"Aww, is my girl blushing?" He coos while stroking my cheek.
"Your girl?" I blush furiously as I look into his eyes. A tense moment passes as we stare into each others eyes. Slowly, not wanting to take me by surprise he leans in and presses his lips to mine. My knees shake and my hands clam up, but I wrap them around his neck as I part my lips against his. We slowly kiss for what feels like hours, making my heart flutter and I know deep down it feels right.
