13. The Banishing/Sacrifice

Minho’s POV

A few minutes later, I walked into the living room and sat down. Thomas was there as well.

“So are we gonna hear about the Banishment!?” Austin exclaimed. Thomas and Crystal looked at each other then back at the kids. “Are you sure?” I said. The kids nodded. “We want more action!” Austin said. “Ok here goes.” I began.


Everything was back to normal but Crystal was getting on Jack’s nerves bc he thinks Crystal and Thomas brought the Grievers out of the Maze to destroy the Glade. I didn’t believe him one bit and neither did Newt or Thomas.

Newt, Thomas, Crystal and I are upstairs in the Homestead before the Gathering starts. Crystal is pacing back and forth. “I hate Jack! He’s such a freaking shuck head. I had nothing to do with the Griever attack. The creators brought them and tortured us. Jack doesn’t know me so what makes him think I’m a spy!? It so annoying.” She yells.

“Crystal, you need to calm down.” Newt hugs her. “We believe you. Jack’s a jerk and shouldn’t lead us.” Thomas says. I nod in agreement. We heard a knock on the door and I went to answer it. I open the door to find Wyatt and Zack.

Wyatt holds the Griever’s poison dart in his hand and Zack pushes Newt and I aside. Crystal and Thomas sat on the bed talking when Wyatt walks over and stabs Thomas in the knee. Crystal cries out and kneels down towards him.

“What’s going on!?” Newt yells. Zack pulls Crystal up and drags her away along with Thomas. There was no answer and the four of them left.


Newt, Chris and I knelt in front of the Slammer just as Thomas was waking up. “Hey Tommy” Crystal says running her fingers through his hair. “What happened?” Thomas asks. “I guess Jack wants to leave you two in here bc of the Griever attack. He’s in charge and has almost all the Gladers on his side.” I reply. “Like I said, we didn’t bring them here the creators did.” Crystal spat.

It was quiet for a while and we all looked at each other. Thomas stares at Newt, Chris and I for a long time as if trying to remember something. “This place..its not a prison, it’s a test. It all started when we were kids. They’d give us these challenges. They were experimenting on us, and then people started disappearing, every month, one after the other, like clock work.”

“They were sending them up into the Maze” Newt said.

“Yeah, but not all of us” Thomas replies.

“What d’you mean?” Newt asks.

“Guys, I’m one of them. The people who put you here, I worked with them. I-I watched you guys for years. The entire time you’ve been here, I...I was on the other side of it.” Thomas replies.

He looks at Crystal.

“And so are you” Thomas says.

Crystal sits there silently.

“Crystal, we did this to them.” Thomas says.

“What! It can’t be true.”

“It is. I saw it.” Thomas says.

“Why would they send us up if we were with them?” Crystal asks.

“It doesn’t matter.” Thomas replies.

“He’s right. It doesn’t matter..any of it..bc the people we were before the Maze-they don’t exist anymore. The Creators took care of that. But what does matter is who we are now, and what we do, right now. You went into the Maze and found a way out.” Newt begins.

“Yeah, but if I hadn’t, Ace would still be alive.” Thomas says.

“Maybe. But I know that if he were here, he would be telling you the exact same thing: Pick your arse up and finish what you started. Because if we do nothing, that’s means Ace died for nothing, and I can’t have that.” Newt finishes his speech.

Crystal applauds then mumbles something under her breath. Thomas lays his head down in her lap when I see Jack coming from the Deadheads.

“Hey Jack’s coming. How are we going to do this?” I said. Newt looks at Thomas and says, “What’s your plan Tommy?” Thomas explains the plan to us and we nod in agreement.


Crystal is tied in front of a pole yelling and screaming at Jack. “What are you gonna do? Banish us like you did to Bryan.” “This isn’t a Banishing, it’s a Sacrifice.” A few of the Gladers were in shock.

Thomas is brought out by two Gladers. His feet are dragging, his face is all beat up, Crystal was crying as the two Gladers kick Thomas in the stomach and ribs. Thomas then crouches on his knees and waits.

Newt and I watch in despair and wait for the plan to unfold. I look at Chris, Frank, and Crystal while Jack is explaining the Sacrifice and the crimes Thomas and Crystal committed which was honestly boring.

Anyway, everything was going to plan as usual until Jack saw Thomas crawl over to Crystal. “What you doing Thomas?” Jack asks. “Giving Crystal a hug” Thomas replies and slowly grabs onto Crystal’s leg for support and lifts himself up. He has a sharp object in his hand and hands it to Crystal then whispers in her ear. “I’ll protect you no matter what. What are siblings for?”

End of Flashback

“Awesome! Mum and Uncle Tommy reunited!” Annabelle exclaimed. “What happened next? Is that the end?” Austin freaked out. “Calm down son. It’s not the end. There’s more to the story.” Newt said.

“Whew. I thought it was over.” Austin replied. “It’s almost over” Uncle Tommy said. “Who’s turn is it now?” Annabelle asked. Everyone turned to Crystal who just walked in.

“Yes?” She asked. “Kids want to know what happened after the Banishing.” Minho said. The kids smiled. “Who’s ready to hear how we escaped the Glade?” Crystal asked. The kids nodded in excitement.
