When you are separated from Newt during the WICKED infiltration of
Jorge’s lair with Thomas and Brenda
fired. You heard bullets zip through the glass windows pelting sharp
shards throughout the warehouse. You couldn’t escape the harsh
screams and raucous cluttering no matter how hard you closed your
ears shut. They found you. They found your friends. Its game over.
wasn’t until you felt a firm grip on your shoulder when you turned
away from the dark corner of the room. “It’s ok, Y/N,” a
calm voice called out bringing you into his arms, “We’ll get
out. Thomas said we are going with Jorge.”
you stuttered, “But Newt, are you sure we can trust him?”
have no other choice,” he said softly as a another shot was
heard in the level below, “WICKED is almost here, we need to
nodded. He hoisted you up while placing one arm around your waist and
pulled you closer to him. Before you could take another step , you
heard footsteps from the staircase.
he whispered, pulling you down onto the floor. The snipers made their
way into the room. Before you knew it, fear filled your veins and you
began to shiver in trepidation. Everything was so still. The only
thing you could hear was Newt’s breathing brushing softly against
your cheeks. The two of you crouched behind a table and began making
your way across the room.
froze and glanced at Newt. They must have certainly heard that. There
was no other choice but to run. Newt interlaced his fingers with
yours and within seconds , the two of you shoved the heavy table
forward knocking the two men off balance and then proceeded to race
down the hallway. It took a few moments for the men to recover from
the sudden shock but they were back on their feet and began firing,
shattering the glass windows once more. By that time, it was too
late. You and Newt had rounded the corner and raced several flights
of stairs to the others.
here,” Newt said breathlessly.
guys ok?” Minho asked. You nodded, gasping for breath. “Good,
cause we might not be ok after that crazy shank’s plan to get out of
here.” Minho handed you a rope and pointed out the window to the
opposite building where the rest of your friends stood. “Ladies
you kidding me?” you cried glancing down into the abyss, “That’s
like a 100 foot drop. Where’s Thomas?”
back with Brenda, he’ll be back soon. Now go!”
stopped him. “Minho, you join the others. I’ll come with her.”
you say man,” Minho stated and with no fear, he casually slid
down the rope to the other side. Newt pulled out the next rope and
held it towards you.
on,” he answered. But it wasn’t the rope that caught your
attention, it was his arm. A glass shard pierced through his skin
causing blood to spew over his sleeve.
my god, you’re hurt,” you stated pulling his arm towards you.
brushed your concern away. “Don’t worry about that. Now go.”
sighed. “Damn love, do you always have to argue with me?”
smiled. “Yes, because I’m always right.”
scoffed and brought you into his chest. He hugged you deeply before
releasing you. He brushed your hair from your face and gently kissed
your forehead. While brushing your cheeks with his fingers, he
whispered, lips merely a centimeter from your own, “No
matter what happens, come right after me, alright? Don’t look
nodded and took a step back. Newt glanced at you one last time before
sliding down the thick wires to the other building. Before you could
reach for another rope, the snipers were here. They aimed their guns
straight at you. You shuddered. Turning back, you saw Newt gesturing
you to come but he sensed something was wrong. Whatever the case may
be, you couldn’t let WICKED reach the other side. You swiftly took
a dagger from the tables nearby and cut the long wires loose and the
connection between the two buildings was broken.
heard a sharp cry from the other side and you knew to whom that voice
so sorry Newt.
placed a few remaining daggers back into your pocket. The snipers did
not appreciate your bold move. “I don’t care what the boss
says,” one of them said, “I am gonna destroy this little
gasped believing the shot was fired at you, when in actuality the
sniper in front of you fell to his knees. You felt someone grab your
arm from behind and pull you back. That’s when you noticed Brenda
keeping the snipers occupied while Thomas brought you to safety. When
the two of you finally reached Brenda, you raced through the hallway.
Brenda called out, “This place is gonna blow.”
was no joke. You heard a soft rumble and then a heavy blast, bringing
the building down rapidly. The three of you jumped down a narrow
shaft at the end of the scaffolding while the ceiling crumbled and
tossed a plethora of wooden planks and metals pieces into the
basement below. You coughed trying to locate the others through the
thick dust left over from the blast.
Brenda!” You exclaimed.
here!” Thomas replied while shining a light at your face. You
brought your arms up to shield your eyes and walked over to them.
Brenda pointed down to the a barred door and together the three of
you pulled it open. “Here’s our way out,” she whispered.
You and Thomas exchanged glances and that’s when you heard it. A
sharp, eerie cry from the tunnels below. You recognized that sound
and almost instantly you turned ice cold.

lips quivered and you lost all feeling in your limbs. “You ok?”
shook your head. “No. I can’t go down there. Not after what
happened the last time.” Thomas grasped your arm before you
could say anything else.

. . We couldn’t do anything to save him. The cranks infected him
and he chose to leave us. It was out of our control.”
don’t understand Thomas,” you burst out, “Newt is hurt.
He’s bleeding which means he is more prone to infection. I should
have went after him. I was the Med Jack back in the glade, I could
have helped him. With all this chaos, I couldn’t do anything. What
if something happens to him? I don’t know whether I will be able to
handle it. I can’t do this any-”
Stop it! We are going to get out of here. We are going to find the
others. And we will get back at WICKED. I promise.” He placed his
hands on your shoulders and gripped them firmly. "And you did
not make a bad decision back there. You saved him from those WICKED
nodded and urged you to follow Brenda down into the tunnel. After a
few moments, you regained your composure and jumped down below.
Thomas followed right after you and together with Brenda, the three
of you walked through the darkened chambers. You would constantly
hear faint cries behind you but when you moved your flashlight, you
couldn’t see anything except the black, eerie walkways. A few
moments passed and that’s when you heard it. A screech of some
sort. You all stood paralyzed with fear. There, at the opposite end
of the hallway approached the freakishly deranged cranks. It didn’t
take a minute before they began racing towards you three and without
a doubt, you all ran through the corridors until you finally noticed
raced onward. A burst of adrenaline pulsed through your veins and
this was exactly the jump your limbs needed to push forward. You
weren’t a runner back in the glade but when it comes to out running
Cranks, those thoughts never entered your mind. It was about
survival. Run and never look back. You lost a few of them over the
cliff side when you finally exited the tunnels. There was only one
remaining. He was so quick and agile, you could almost feel him
beside you. You had to slow him down. But how?
slipped one from your side pocket and swiftly turned while
simultaneously releasing one dagger from your hand. Without a doubt,
it landed straight onto the creature’s mid-thigh causing him to
stagger back in pain. Brenda took this opportunity and urged you
back. She began firing the left over bullets in her gun causing the
creature to move backward closer towards the edge of the cliff.
a little bit more.
reached back into your pockets and grasped two more daggers. Without
another thought, you fixed your aim and let them fly.
Thomas whispered from beside you.
looked up and noticed the two daggers fixed perfectly dead center
onto the skull of the deformed creature. This was the extra push it
needed before it lost its footing and fell thousands of feet off the
rocky cliffs into the depths of the Scorch.
looked back at you a little surprised. “Are you sure you were
just a Med Jack?”
laughed and gazed at the last dagger within your hand. “I had a
good teacher.” You glanced at Thomas and he knew who you meant.
Who was the one person who constantly worried for your safety in the
maze? The only one who urged you to learn to protect yourself despite
not being a runner? Newt.
quiet ones always surprise you,” Brenda replied with a smile.
wasn’t long before you reached a small colony of a few locals
roaming through what seemed to be a deserted and run-down city. Were
the others here? There was one main large building so majestically
adorned with banners and flags which you presumed could be the city
hall. If the others did come by here, surely someone here must have
noticed? Without waiting any further, the three of you slipped into
the doors only to be welcomed by booming music which could have
easily made your ears bleed.
Thomas cried out amongst the noise, “Don’t wander off too much.
Meet back here in 5 ok?” You all agreed before venturing out
further into the crowd. It was at that moment when you realized your
mouth was parched from all the running out in the scorch. A clear
bottle caught your eye and almost instantly, you grabbed it off the
counter and consumed the entire contents. The drink was cool but it
tasted a bit peculiar. You coughed a bit taken back from the flavor
but still continued moving forward.
figures began to glow blurry and you couldn’t make out their facial
features. The booming echo resonated within your ears nearly driving
you deaf. And that’s when you saw it. Glimpses of the perished
gladers you met back in the maze, only they were now standing right
in front of you. You saw Ben. Then Alby. Then Chuck. And you saw
Alex, a deranged glader who ran frantically onto the maze in panic.
There he was right in front of you. You were most certain he was
there. You squinted trying to see him more properly and realized his
expression. He looked depressed, tired and upset. “Why didn’t
you save me?” he asked softly. You looked up and saw dark
machine-like creature slowing towering over you.
can’t be here. They were back in the maze. You looked back at Alex.
“Why Y/N?” he asked again before the creature from above
pounced on him and piercing its stinger straight through his body.
screamed as you saw his limp body on the ground and ran back. It
didn’t stop the hallucinations though. You saw your friends
everywhere you looked, only they looked sick, pale, and deranged it
caused your heart to beat faster in panic. It started getting warmer
and your head ached with a burning sensation which caused you to sink
back into a corner of the room. You brought your hands to your ears
trying to distant yourself from the people within your vicinity.
wasn’t long before you felt a reassuring hand on your shoulder.
came a familiar voice, “It’s ok. You’ll be ok.”

fixing us up. Now come on, let’s get you out of here.”
slipped your arms away from him and pouted.

heard that chuckle again. “Believe me love, he will forgive you
awoke to soft voice calling your name repeatedly. Light blinded your
sight for a moment until everything became clear again. You turned to
the side and saw Newt resting his head casually on his arm while
glancing at you lovingly. “Welcome back, love.”
you cried out trying to sit up straight.
stood up from the chair beside your bed and gently pushed you back
under the covers. “It’s ok Y/N, I’m fine. We are ok. Jorge and
the rest of us found out that a couple of people saw you walking in
here so we came to find you. Brenda and Thomas are okay. Looks like
you all drank or ate something in there which made you hallucinate a
bit.” You looked at his arm and noticed it was all bandaged
properly. “Jorge fixed me up a bit.”
sighed. “I was so scared I would lose you.”
scared?” he asked tracing his fingers through your hair, “I
nearly thought about burning the entire scorch down after that
building collapsed with you in it. Trust me, even Minho thought I was
bloody insane. What were you thinking?”

thought was right.”
brought his face closer to yours. “You’re really incredible you
know that?” A soft blush covered your cheeks. Within seconds, he
pulled you up and brought you onto his lap. His arms circled around
your waist tugging you towards his chest.

We were different. Sick almost as if we were changing into . .

may not seem like much but that vision nearly killed me. You and the
rest of the gladers are all I have Newt. Without you, I don’t know
what I do. I love you.”
froze. That was the first time you ever said that to him. His eyes
were upon you and tilted his head, a bit taken back but a small smile
appeared in the corner of his mouth. “Oh is that right love?”
he asked a bit cockily with a smirk on his lips.
the feelings mutual,” he replied before closing the gap between
your lips. His kiss was soft and gentle at first, but then it became
fiery and passionate, causing your heart to pound so hard you were
afraid he could hear it. He tilted his head to deepen the kiss
causing you to melt into his arms. He pulled away softly and began to
playfully peck your lips. Fearing that your face would burn into a
deeper shade of red, you burrowed your head into his shoulder and
hugged him close. You could hear him chuckling softly in your ear,
amused by your actions. You both were in this together now, and no
matter what happens, you would always find your way back to one
another. Whether it be in a maze. Or out in the scorch. Being
alienated would never stop you again.
