A new day in the Maze.
I woke up to someone shaking my shoulders. Rubbing my eyes, I slowly opened them to see who just had to wake me up right now.
"Alexa..." Aveline poked my cheek, standing next to my hammock. I scream, almost falling out of my hammock. Jesus, what is she doing up?
I hear Aveline fall on the ground laughing, which pisses me off more. Who does this Greenie think she is? I mean, I get that we may have known each other before this, but she can't just do this crap.
"Aveline, go away." I take my blanket and wrap myself up, falling onto my hammock. Eventually, she gets bored and I hear her footsteps start and then fade away.
I feel the sun on my arms and a warm sensation runs through my body. Yawning, I stand up and walk around the Glade.
Strange. I see no one.
Confused, I walk around for a solid ten minutes before finding all the Gladers. They're in a circle, cups in their hands, listening intensely to Aveline.
I click my tongue before jogging into to woods to the Runner's Cabin and getting my gear. Time to map the Maze.
Bloody hell, why do I hear laughing and talking so early? Eventually, it gets too annoying to be able to fall back asleep to. I walk over to the source of the noise. And, of course, it's that Greenie... Aveline.
"So they run these experiments on you 'Gladers' to find a-" I walk behind Aveline and pull her up by the arm.
"Greenie, more work, less talk." I hear a collection of sighs from the Gladers that were listening to her. "That includes all you shanks!" Immediately, they all stand and scatter off to their jobs.
Aveline turns to me, her arms crossed. "What's your problem? I was just telling those guys what's going on in the outside world."
I roll my eyes, letting out a chuckle of frustration. "Look Greenie, I get you're from the outside. But, we all have jobs to do here because we want to get out of the Maze. So, go do your part." I start off to the fields.
As I reach the edge of the hut they were under, Aveline says, "I don't see what my best friend sees in you. Her tastes back home are nothing like you."
I walk off before I can say anything else.
Honestly, this Maze group doesn't know much. And Newt, he's changed. When he and Alexa were dating before the Maze, he acted totally different. And so did Alexa. What changed?
After I get a drink and eat my morning meal, I jog around the Glade perimeter once before running into the Maze. Let's see how far these Gladers have gotten to the end.
