The Girl in The Maze

Have you ever wondered how you met the love of your life? Well Crystal sure does. She remembers like it was yesterday.


The box comes to a halt and opens.
T: "Who is it Newt?"
N: "Its a girl" He looks up at Thomas.
The girl lays there unconscious and then begins to stir.
C: "Where the heck am I?"
She slowly gets up and
looks around at the group of boys staring down at her. Her eyes linger towards Thomas and cocks her head.
C: "Thomas?"

My interpretation of The Maze Runner

9. Recovering

Crystal’s POV

“Can you tell us what happened while you were recovering from the Griever sting Mom?” The kids asked. “Of course. It’s pretty funny.” I chuckle and begin my part.


I’m lying on a bed asleep in the Homestead recovering from what happened in the Maze. I hear voices which sound familiar. I couldn’t remember what happened after I was somehow stung by the Griever.

“What if she doesn’t make it Tommy!? What if she dies!” I hear Newt shout. “Just calm down Newt. Crystal will be fine.” Thomas replies. “How do you know?” Newt asks. “I have a good feeling about it.” Thomas replies and sits near the bed. I could hear Newt pacing back and forth for a minute or so then calm down and sit in the other side of the bed.

I hear the Med Jack’s come in and shoo Newt and Thomas out of the room because they had to have me go through “the Changing”. Newt, of course, didn’t want to go and neither did Thomas. “We are not leaving her again!” Thomas shouts to one of the Med Jacks. “Fine. If you won’t leave then just try and keep her down.” The other Med Jack says pulling out a needle. “Btw, Crystal hates needles” Thomas butts in. The Med Jack looks at him. “Well I guess she’ll have to deal with it then.” He says. Thomas and I nodded.

*After the Changing*

My eyes slowly flutter open and I sit up and see Newt and Thomas sitting on either side of me. Newt was crying and Thomas was silent. “What happened?” I ask. They both looked at me and were overjoyed. “Crystal, thank God your alive! I never thought I’d see you again.” Newt cries out and leans over to hug me.

I look at Newt with a weird look. “Good to see you too Newt.” I say. “Trying to keep you from killing us was pretty hard.” Thomas says. “What happened?” I ask. You were flinging around, saying weird things, and cussing up a storm.” Thomas replies. “Ha that would be me.” I chuckle. “We’re just glad you’re ok.” Thomas says. “Me too” I smile.

It was quiet for a moment. Newt sat next to me holding my hand and I lean back against the wall. Thomas was looking at us grinning from ear to ear. “You guys are cute together.” He randomly blurts out. Newt glares at him. “Sorry. But it’s true.” Thomas apologizes.

“Can we please change the subject?” I ask. “Sure.” Newt replies and looks back at me. “So Crystal, what about the story?” Thomas whines. “All you care about is the story?” I ask. “What story?” Newt looks over at Thomas. “I’d be glad to tell it from the beginning unless there’s something wrong.” I say and turn to look at both boys. “No! There’s nothing wrong.” Thomas says. I turn and look at Newt. “Might as well start where I left off.” I shrug.

I try to sit up in bed and Newt helps me. “Now where did I leave off?” I ask. “The part where the boy left the girl and their mother.” Thomas replies.

“Ahh, yes. Of course! So a few years later after the boy left, the girl watched her mother go psycho so she had to fend for herself. Then WCKD came by yet again and asked her to be part of some Maze Trials. Her only condition was to see her brother. They agreed but WCKD told her he might not remember her. The girl was put into the box as soon as she reached WCKD’s HQ and was brought up into the Glade. When she reached the top, she immediately recognized the boy but the boy didn’t recognize her. The two of them slowly got to know each other and tried to figure out a way out of the Maze. But the girl met another boy who threw her and her brother into the Maze for a night. The other boy finally realized that he loved her and went after her.” I finish the story and Thomas and Newt look puzzled. “Now that I finished the story, try and figure out who’s who with the info from the story and from before.” I say.

Thomas and Newt think about it for a moment.

Thomas’s interpretation: The boy left the girl alone with the mom who went crazy. A few years later, the girl gets a visit from WICKED and they ask her to go in the Maze and try to figure a way out. The girl shows up and recognizes the boy and meets another boy. How are the boy and girl related?

Newt’s interpretation: Thomas and Crystal have been spending a lot of time together when she got here. How does she know Thomas?

I look at them and can’t help but chuckle. “Still can’t figure it out?” I ask. They both shake their heads in reply. “I’ll give you a hint. Who’s the only girl here?” I ask. “You of course.” Newt replies. “Ok. Now figure out which boy’s which.” I say.

Newt and Thomas think about it again and after a few minutes Newt asks, How is Minho part of all this?” “Idk because he’s a good friend” I reply. “Of course he is.” Thomas says. “While you two are figuring out the two boys, I’m going to go for a walk.” I say getting out of bed. Newt helps me up and walks me to the door.

“I’m glad you’re ok. He says. “Me too. If it weren’t for you and Thomas, I would probably be dead.” I reply back. Newt hugs me just as Thomas walks over.

“I figured it out” he says.

End of flashback

“What did Uncle Tommy figure out mom?” Austin asked. “I figured out that I was your mom’s brother.” Thomas replied. “Yay! What about the other boy?” Annabelle asked. Thomas and I chuckled. “Newt was still having a tough time with that one. He thought it was Minho.” I laughed. “I was about to punch you in the face man.” Newt said to Minho. “Did dad and Uncle Minho get in a fight?” Austin asked.

“Let’s ask your uncle.” I said and everyone looked at Minho.
