4. Chapter 4
5:59pm. One. Last. Minute. One more minute until two people in this province will receive the news that they will have to survive the maze.

And that's when the clock hand ticks 6:00pm. I draw in a deep breath. I breathe in and out steadily to try to calm my racing heart. No one has knocked yet. Maybe it isn't me... Everything will be alri-
But that's when I hear it.
