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?"

7. The Maze

Thomas’s POV

“Why’s everyone looking at me? Is it because I’m hot.” I smirked. “Yes! Oh my gosh yes! Your so hot Thomas!” Crystal began to fan girl. Newt stared at her and mouthed “What the heck?” “I knew it!” I exclaimed. Crystal turned to Minho and Newt and snickered. “Haha just kidding! You actually thought..” Crystal laughed so did Newt and Minho. “Wow. You’re funny.” I rolled my eyes.

“Mom, Dad?” Austin asked. “Uncle Minho, Uncle Thomas?” Annabelle asked. Minho looked at the kids. “I’m sorry kids” Newt apologized. “Can we continue with the story?” Annabelle asked. I calmed down and said, “Of course.”


“Crystal!” I shout as I follow her out of the Homestead. I find her crouched up against the West Wall of the Maze crying. “Crystal, are you ok?” I walk up and crouched down next to her. “How could he do this? I was just trying to help.” She sobs. I put my arm around Crystal as she continues to cry.

In my mind, I was thinking of punching Jack in the face b/c he’s a jerk but I didn’t want to leave Crystal alone. “Don’t worry Crystal we will find a way out of here. I promise you.” I whisper. “I hope so.” Crystal sobbed. As she was crying, I sang her a lullaby.

Hush little baby don’t say a word, Mommy’s gonna buy you a mocking bird and if that mocking bird don’t sing, Mommy’s gonna buy you a diamond ring. And if that diamond ring turns brass, Mommy’s gonna buy you a looking glass”

I felt Crystal lean against me as I continued the lullaby.

“And if that looking glass gets broke, Mommy’s gonna buy you a billy goat. And if that billy goat don’t pull, Mommy’s gonna buy you a cart and bull. And if that cart and bull turn over, Mommy’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover...I forgot the words”

By the time I finished the lullaby Crystal was asleep. A few minutes passed and Crystal woke up when I moved. “Boy! I’m trying to sleep. Why do you keep waking me up?” She groaned. “Sorry.” I apologize. “What time is it?” Crystal asks wiping her eyes. “Hmm idk let’s look at my invisible watch.” I say sarcastically. Crystal rolls her eyes and chuckles.

Dawn was beginning to come and I knew it was time. I see Minho walk towards us. “It’s time.” He says and helps us up. Crystal clings to my arm as the three of us walk to the group of Gladers who are waiting for us. There was name calling, catcalls, worried looks (from Newt and Minho) all around as Crystal and I came to the middle of the circle.

The Maze was open and the Gladers began poking us to get closer. I could hear Grievers coming in the distance. “Are you ready?” I ask Crystal. She looks up at me with tears in her eyes and shakes her head. “Don’t worry I’ll protect you.” I say. Crystal nods as we walk into the Maze.

*The Maze*

“How did you know that song?” Crystal asks. “Idk it was the first thing that came to mind.” I reply. “Hmm.” Crystal shrugs, lets go of my arm, and walks towards the wall and slides down.

“So how do we get out of here?” I ask. Crystal looks at me then at the fork in the pathway. “Let’s see if we go right or left, we will run into Grievers and most likely die. But you’re the Runner Tommy. What do you think?” Crystal replies. “Well you seem to know a lot more than me so I’m down with whatever you decide.” I say. Crystal groans. “Whatever we decide to do we will get killed.” She gets up and walks to the fork and turns right. I get up and follow her.

As we continue walking I say, “Tell me about yourself. Where are you from? How’d you get in the Maze?”

Crystal replies with,”Are you sure you want to know?” “Yes. I’ve been trying to figure you out all day!” I exclaim. Crystal sighs. “Alright. Once I tell you, you’ll never look at me the same as you did when I first came here.” What does that mean?” I ask. “Let’s start at the beginning shall we?” Crystal replies.

“Once upon a time, there was a cute little family who did everything together. The parents had two wonderful, amazing kids, a boy and a girl. Then out of the blue, disaster struck and the father died mysteriously leaving his wife and kids alone.

A few weeks later after the grieving process was over, WICKED came by and knocked on their door asking for the boy to come with them. He didn’t have a choice. He was able to say goodbye to the girl and his mother. He hugged them both and whispered to the girl, ‘No matter what happens I will always protect you.’ then he left.”

I listen intently to Crystal’s story and wonder what happened to the mom, who the kids were, etc. A few minutes went by and Crystal didn’t say anything. “Crystal?” I ask. Crystal points in front of her and begins to breath heavy. I look where she’s pointing and sure enough there was a Griever in our path.

“What do we do?” I ask. “Idk you’re the Runner.” Crystal replies and backs into me. I grab her hand and start running in the other direction.

“So what happened to the mom and the girl? Who were the kids?” I ask as we’re running for our lives. “You’re more concerned with what happens in the story then getting attacked by a Griever!” Crystal shouts. “Sorry! Maybe later?” I shout back. “If we’re still alive!” Crystal says.

I run ahead of Crystal a little ways hoping she would be behind me but when I look back she wasn’t there. I stop in my tracks and look around for her. “Crystal!” I shout. “Tommy! Over here.” I hear a voice in the distance. “Crystal! Crystal!” I run towards the voice and don’t find Crystal. I begin to freak out and cry because I thought she was taken.

All of sudden, I see the Griever in the distance coming towards me. I try to run away but the Griever is too quick and stabs my shoulder. “Ahh! I’ve been attacked!” I yell and tumble to the ground.

End of flashback

The kids fell asleep while the four adults talked quietly. “I’m so glad we were able to get out of the Maze when we did cuz if not, we would’ve been stuck there forever.” Minho whispered. “Yea me too” Crystal replied. “Now let’s get these little monsters to bed before they end up sleeping on the couch.” Newt said. “I’ll help you Newt.” Minho said. Minho and Newt picked up the kids and walked them to their room.

“Goodnight” Crystal and I said together. I got up and sat next to Crystal who was trying not to fall asleep. I heard her sing the same lullaby I sang to her back in the Maze. “Hush little baby don’t say a word, Mommy’s gonna buy you a mocking bird and if that mocking bird don’t sing, Mommy’s gonna buy you a diamond ring...” Her eyes were getting heavy then she passed out. I smiled down at her as Newt was going down the hall to his room.

“Sis?” I whispered. “Hmm” she replied tiredly. I picked her up and carried her down the hall to her and Newt’s room. I walked in and set her on the bed then she passed out. I kissed her forehead then got up and walked over to the door. As I closed the door I saw Crystal open her eyes. “Tommy?” She said. “Yea” I replied. “I love you” she said. “I love you too sis. Goodnight.” I smiled and closed the door then went to bed.
