The Trials


4. chapter four


Eleanor's POV

The glade. That's where i am. So far, i can't remember much: just my name and a couple faces. It's a little hard to process in one day.

“Three rules...” The tall, built boy named Alby tells me. I think he's the leader, but i don't listen to him anyways. I'm to busy trying to process all this information in one day.

“And never go past these walls.” He tells me strictly, but only the last rule caught my attention. Why can't i go out there?

“Whats behind them?” I ask him, eyes now trained on the doors.

“I don't think you're ready to find out just yet little lady. But you can go explore for a little before Frypan's done supper.” Before i turn, he gives me a stern look that seems to say 'and DONT go past those walls'.

I'm handed a heaping plate of potatoes and beef, and ushered towards the campfire. Awkwardly clutching my plate i stand behind the hoard of boys, wondering who to sit beside when a tall, brown haired, puppy dog eyed boy waves me over.

I think his name is Thomas, he's one of our runners. Something about him is familiar, almost warming. I shuffle my feet towards him, my cheeks flushing a beet red colour. I can feel other gladers eyes on me..

“You're Eleanor aren't you? Could i just call you Ellie?”

“I'm going to miss you Tommy. I don't want to live without you.” A voice that sounds like mine says, although me, myself isn't moving my lips.

“I won't forget you Ellie, promise you won't forget me.” The boy- Thomas- says to me.

“Could I?” Thomas repeats. Was that a dream, or a. . . A memory?!

“Tommy, i know you! I remember you. Before the maze i mean!” I shout and hope he doesn't think i'm crazy. Thomas stares at me with his deep brown eyes, almost sad.

“I'm sorry. I don't remember.” He says, before he gets up and walks away.
