Slight au where once the group gets to paradise the get like a shot or something which gives them all of their old memories back and Minho + the reader (who hated each other back in the glade) find out that they were in love and now since they have their memories back they are again and it’s really weird for the rest of the people who were so used to seeing them argue and stuff. I hope that made sense. xx
Note: I had been thinking this out before I started writing and the words just seemed to flow out of me (that sounds weird, right?). Anyways, I tried to put all the things into this sort of short story. And eh, sorry for letting you wait for such a long time. I hope you enjoy it!
Minho x reader
slight paradise au where the gladers didn’t have the chance to get their memory back before getting there
suddenly everything was different. From tumbling walls to peaceful nature. The
sounds of rocks falling down and screams were now changed into the tweeting of
birds and the surprised gasps from the people around you. You tried so hard to
understand what happened. But you couldn’t.
You went through the flat-trans. You were somewhere else. You were safe.
Welcome to paradise.
table in front of you, cups filled with a pink liquor and a note next to it.
Thomas was the first to step forward and read it out loud.
‘’We can all agree that you made it out safely. Past the experiments, past
WCKD. But there is one thing left for you to do. These bottles contain a liquid
that gives you your memory back. There is only one bottle for everyone. Be
careful. And welcome to paradise.’’
Thomas put the paper back down and you looked around the group. Everyone was
thinking. Would they even want their memory back? But you wanted it. You wanted
to remember how you were before the Maze. Before WCKD. Before you were taken
from your family. Maybe you could finally remember some good things. You
stepped forward and grabbed a bottle.
‘’Let’s try this.’’ You said, looking around the group. You opened the bottle
and drank the liquid. It tasted sweet. It felt good. You felt good.
‘’Anything?’’ Minho asked. You rolled your eyes at him. You never liked him in
the Maze, but you had to admit that he helped you a few times in the Scorch and
you were grateful for that. ‘’No.’’ You responded, but then it felt like your
mind was turning and twisting. You had to grab the table to not fall over. You
could see flashes in front of your eyes. Faces you didn’t recognize before but
did now. Your family. Your school. Your life. A smile appeared on your face.
‘’I think it works.’’ Sonya said and she also grabbed a bottle. The others did
too and the movement around you made you even more dizzy. You tried to walk
away, but you were stumbling on your feet. There was a hand on your arm,
steadying you. You looked up to see Minho there, the last person you wanted to
touch you. But when you stared into his eyes you could see flashes of him. Of
him and you. Of you going to the cinema, hanging out together. Having dinner,
kissing. You stumbled backwards. ‘’J-Just take your own bottle.’’ You said
harshly to Minho.
You wanted to keep him closer to you but he walked away to get a bottle. You
felt guilty for being so mean towards him. All you wanted right now was just to
talk and be with him. How were those memories gone before? How was that feeling
never there in the Glade? Or was it there, but did you never notice it? You had
always had a familiar feeling around Minho and now you knew why.
away, you didn’t want to be so close to the others now. You sat down on a rock,
looking out over the sea. You rubbed your temples, massaging it. It felt like
your mind was so tired from all the new memories. You were so concentrated on
everything but nothing that you didn’t notice someone sat down next to you.
‘’Hey.’’ His voice was soft, almost a whisper as Minho spoke.
‘’Hi.’’ You answered, looking at him. And you could remember all the times you
held his face, all the times he held you. You could feel a rush of happiness
somewhere inside the pit of your stomach, but you pushed it away for now.
‘’Do you remember?’’ You asked him. You stared at the sea, the waves were
crashing against the rocks. Drops of water landed on your legs. The sound was calming.
You didn’t see Minho nod and stare at you. You didn’t see him hesitating and
unsure. One of the first times he didn’t push that feeling away. But suddenly
his hand on yours made you look at him. And you saw that vulnerability in his
eyes. His fingers intertwined with yours and it felt like the warmth from his
hand was now spreading through your whole body.
‘’I want to start over. Or take it on from where we left. I don’t know what,
but I want this. Us.’’ He said and he looked away. He still had a hard time
talking about his feelings.
You leaned in and pressed a kiss against his cheek. Minho turned to you, his eyes
widened a little.
‘’Couldn’t resist me, huh?’’ He wiggled his eyebrows and turned into the cocky
Minho you hated so much. But also the
cocky Minho you had always loved.
‘’You’re the one who came here. So who can’t resist?’’ You poked him and he
‘’We’ll see about that.’’ He took your hand and pulled you up, walking you back
to the group.
looked up in surprise. Especially when they saw you were holding hands. ‘’No
more hating?’’ Frypan shouted at you. He was already collecting the food and
stacking in something that was probably going to be the new kitchen. Harriet
and Sonya didn’t look that surprised, but they had never heard you argue with
Minho. Or seen the embarrassing pranks. You could imagine how Newt would react.
Chuckling while slamming his hand on Minho’s shoulder. ‘’You’re bloody lucky.’’
You smiled at the thought of that, but Newt wasn’t there and a sadness suddenly
hung over you.
‘’I don’t believe it.’’ Thomas said, distracting you from your thoughts. Gally
nodded, agreeing with him. Minho had a smug look on his face when he looked
back at you.
‘’Shuckfaces.’’ Minho said, and then he pulled you closer to him. He cupped your
face in his hands. And he pressed his lips against yours. You could feel
yourself getting lost in the kiss. You remembered kissing him and how you put
your arms around him to pull him closer. How your lips brushed against each
other and how it made you feel like you were the luckiest girl in the world.
And you didn’t know if you could ever feel like that again, with everything
that had happened. But right in that moment, when he suddenly kissed you, it
felt like the closest that you could be to that feeling.
You heard gagging sounds from the group, playfully getting you to stop kissing.
‘’Please, get a room!’’ Harriet shouted. The others nodded in agreement.
‘’We don’t have one unfortunately.’’ You said, teasing them and Minho laughed.
Gally stood up. ‘’I’ll build you one, shanks.’’
