8. What Have I Done!?

Newt’s POV

The next morning, I woke up and got ready for work. I was in the bathroom fixing my tie when Crystal walked in wearing a long shirt and her hair was in a messy bun which was pretty cute.

“Why are you getting ready for work, it’s Saturday. Come back to bed.” Crystal whined. “I would but I’m meeting up with a few of the Gladers for a reunion. You should come.” I replied. “What about the story? Besides it’s your turn anyway.” Crystal said. “Your right. We can go after.” I smiled. “Yay!” Crystal kissed my cheek and left the bathroom.

I walked in the kids room and went over to their beds. “Annabelle.” I whispered. “Hmm.” She groaned. “Are you kids ready for the story?” I asked. She immediately sat straight as an arrow in bed and nodded. “Great! Get your brother up then come on out.” I said. Annabelle nodded as I got up and walked out.

The kids were up and so was everyone else. “Daddy, what happened next?” Annabelle asked. “That is when I realized I loved your mother.” Crystal sat on my lap as I smiled up at her. “Hey! Don’t forget about me!” Thomas whined. I looked at him and laughed. “Oh right of course. Let’s begin” I said.


I follow Crystal and Thomas into the Maze but I get lost. I wonder around aimlessly until I hear a scream which leads to where Crystal is. I find her leaning over Thomas trying to stop the bleeding. “C’mon Tommy! Stay with me man.” Crystal cries. “Don’t leave me again.” She mumbles under her breath. Thomas looks at me then averts his eyes upward. Crystal and I follow his gaze and see the Griever standing over us.

Crystal rises and stands over Thomas and I come next to her. “What do we do? I’ve never fought a Griever before.” I say. “Me neither. We’ll figure it out.” Crystal replies. “Bloody hell.” I whine. Newt! Watch out!” Thomas shouts. I look up just as the Griever’s arm was coming down. Crystal pushes me out of the way just in time. “Were you trying to get yourself killed!” Crystal shouts. “No! But thanks for saving me.” I shout back. “Just try and distract it while I kill it. It’s can’t be that hard!” Crystal yells. I run around to the back of the Griever and begin to throw rocks at it. “Hey nitwit over here!” I yell. The Griever turns and faces me and I continue to throw rocks and anything else that’s near me. I see Crystal sneak underneath the Griever and stick her hand in its gooey flesh and try to pull something out but she gets scratched. Then out of the blue, I see the Griever become still and fall to the ground.

Crystal is dirty as hell. Her clothes are all tattered, there are cuts and bruises on her face, and she is holding the Grievers poison dart. “Tommy! Tommy!” She calls out. “I did it! I killed my first Griever!” She says excitedly. “That’s great Crystal” Thomas smiles. “How could you be excited about that. You could’ve died!” I shout. Crystal looks at me then back at Thomas. “Tommy, what is Newt doing here?” She asks. “I wanted to see if you were ok.” I reply. “Well I’m fine thanks for being so concerned.” Crystal smiles. We help Thomas up and he leans against me for support.

“So how’d you kill the Griever Crystal?” Thomas asks. “It was pretty easy. All I did was stick my hand in the Grievers stomach and pulled out the poison dart w/o getting stung.” Crystal replies. “I would’ve never thought of that.” Thomas says. I just look at both of them with a concerned look on my face. All of a sudden, Crystal’s knees start to buckle and she crumbles to the ground clutching her stomach and begins wheezing and shaking. Thomas and I look at each other and try to figure out what to do. We were about a mile away from the entrance to the Maze and I begin to freak out. Thomas lets go of me and leans over Crystal to help her but there’s no use.

“What have I done!” I cry out.

“Did mom end up being ok??” Austin asked. “Yes. If she wasn’t she wouldn’t be here now would she?” Minho replied. “Thomas and I brought her to the Med Jack’s immediately the next morning.” I said just as Crystal walked in from the backyard. “Your father and Uncle Minho are right.” Crystal walks over to us and sits next to Annabelle and kissed her forehead.

“Did you have to go through the Changing mom?” Annabelle asked. “Yes. Whenever anyone gets stung by a Griever they go through the Changing.” Crystal replied. “Can you tell us?” Austin asked. “Of course. It’s pretty funny.” Crystal chuckles.
