Maze Runner Imagine
prompt: Hi? I just love your blog, and I was wondering if I could have a newt imagine, where the reader is smart and independent, but in love with him, and he only sees her as another grader until Thomas shows interest in her. She is tired of her unanswered feelings and wants to be happy, but newt gets jealous and falls in love with her! Happy ending please❤️ thank you so much ?
A/N: This is a wonderful prompt, really. I had fun writing this. Hope you enjoy this little one shot, anon!
Y/N opened her eyes slowly, sighing in melancholy. She dreamt about Newt and the time when, a bit tipsy, she declared her feelings for him after hiding them for a very long time. And what did he say? That for him, Y/N was a glader like the others and that he prefered to remain friends. In a nutshell, the second in command broke her heart. But the girl accepted that answer. Inside her, she hoped that knowing her feelings he would start to answer to them after a while. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen.
got up from her hammock and put on her pants. She arrived in the
Glade like two months ago, so everybody knew and respected her, even
if there wasn’t almost any modesty at all. Nobody dared to touch her
without permission, because since her very first day, Y/N showed
amazing independence and intelligence. She quickly became the right
hand of Gally, planning with him new and smart ways to improve every
building in the Glade. After being reglected by Newt, she kept
herself busy even more in her work, to stop thinking about the blond
who stole her heart. That day she planned to help Gally with the new
Greenie, Thomas, because the Keepers of the Builders wasn’t so
patient with him, especially since he seemed to hate him.
went to have a shower and then reached Frypan in the kitchens,
smiling at her favourite cook. -Good morning, Fry- she waved at him.
-Is breakfast ready yet?
girl- answered the cook, laughing. -But you can help me if ya want.
That shank of Gally is still sleeping, you are free for now.
some day I will ask you for a damn salary- Y/N laughed, but she
agreed. She prepared the meals with the cook and then dish everything
to the hungy Gladers. She was still immersed in her thoughts when a
familiar accent tickled her ears.
morning, Y/N- said Newt, smiling at her. The girl immediately looked
up at him, leaning his plate to the boy. At least, she was the best
at hiding her pain and swallow her shattered pride. -How are you?
say fine. Gally is gonna make me the Greenie’s babysitter- she
chuckled, shrugging. -It’s gonna be a hard day. What about you?
told me to take care of Tommy as usual, ya know. It’s my bloody work.
So I’ll be the one to bring him to you- he answered, relaxed and
without any problem to pretend nothing happened between the two of
them, because for him, nothing actually happened. Y/N looked down
with a small smile, pretending to be just tired.
I know that. See you later then?- it was incredible the way Y/N
standed to still be his friend, but she couldn’t do anything else.
Minho didn’t believe she was so strong, but she wasn’t. She suffered
every day knowing that their second in command didn’t love her back.
ya later- Newt agreed, ruffling her hair and then reaching Alby’s
table. Y/N sighed, following him with her eyes, and then she returned
back to work, her mood going down under her feet.
breakfast she went with Gally to the Homestead and they started
talking about some parts of the building that they could improve. -If
we put some… like, some support to balance the weight of the
building, we will be able to add more axes to this side and repair
the shucking window without making the whole structure break down.
it could work. But what about this side? How the hell are we going to
repair this shucking wall? Dave destroyed it all after being stung-
Gally frowned, showing at her the wall on the Homestead map he was
don’t know. It was a bearing wall. We should repair that before
everything else, or we risk not having more a Homestead- Y/N
continued to explain her ideas to the Keeper of Builders, perfectly
aware that the guy payed very attention to her words.
we maybe have a plan- smiled Gally. -But now you should go. Newt is
coming this way with the Greenie- his expression hardened, but the
girl tried to not complain about it. Instead, she turned her back to
her Keeper and reached the second in command with the Newbie.
should be Thomas- she smiled, looking at the guy. He was taller than
her, same age, with brown hair and brown eyes. He looked scared and
curious at the same time. -I’m Y/N. Did you have fun at the Blood
never speak about it ever again- whispered Thomas, going pale. Y/N
it’s shucking disgusting that place.
smiled in silence. -Well, you seem to get along. I’ll come for him
after lunch, good that?
looked straight in his dark brown eyes, smiling a bit. -Good that-
she said, with a low voice. Thomas looked at her, then at him, and
again at her.
are you the Keeper of the Builders?- asked the boy, a bit shy.
I’m not. The Keeper is that big dude over there- Y/N pointed to Gally
with her thumb, amused. -I’m you babysitter for today, “Tommy”.
smiled. -You’re the first one here that hasn’t called me Greenie at
don’t like it. I was a Greenie too a long time ago, so I understand
your frustration. Now, let’s go or otherwise the big dude is gonna
spent the entire morning working at the homestead, until Thomas cut
his palm with the saw. He went pale seeing his own blood, but Y/N
quickly calmed him down. -Hey, relax. I’m not a Med-Jack, but I know
how to take care of this kind of wounds. I cut myself about every
didn’t do that in purpose- Thomas defended himself. -I just…
know, Tommy- she laughed, putting a hand on his knee. -Calm down.
It’s okay. It happens.
shutted up, blushing a bit, and watched the girl taking care of his
hand. She washed him with the water of her bottle and then she
cleaned it. -I’ve got some bandages with me, in case some of us hurt
stayed in silence for a while, and Thomas was analyzing her face,
finding it incredibly cute. Her Y/E/C shined in the light of the day,
and her Y/H/C hair looked soft and smooth as silk. She was very
beautiful, he couldn’t help but stare at her. He didn’t even notice
that she was looking at him too.
are ya staring, Tommy?- she asked gently, bandaging his hand with a
soft touch. He blushed even more, caught off guard.
I was… You’re very beautiful and…- he stuttered, looking down to
their hands. -I’m sorry. Your boyfriend probably will kill me.
Y/N raised an eyebrow. She was blushing, but she was also amused by
his behavior. -I don’t have any boyfriend. I’m the only girl in the
glade, but no one likes me so much- she smiled, but inside her chest
she felt a hole left by Newt, who didn’t answer to her feelings. She
tried to not think about it, focusing on Thomas. -Why did you think
thought… Gally… So you’re just friends?- the Greenie was still
shy and made her laugh.
Oh god, no!- she finished bandaging his hand, and left it on his
knee. -I’m awfully single.
do you like someone here?- asked again the Greenie. Her smile died
quickly at that question.
did. I liked someone before, but now I don’t like anyone- she
answered, lying. A new light fulled Thomas’ eyes, so she smirked,
curious. -Why? Are you interested, Tommy?
bit his bottom lip. -Maybe- he whispered. Y/N blushed at that answer.
Did he liked her? Could she like him back? Y/N didn’t have any answer
to those questions, but what was stopping her from trying? She smiled
back and ruffled his hair friendly.
go back work. And pay attention this time, I don’t have so many
bandages- she warned him, standing up. They kept working till lunch,
when they came back to the kitchen and sat together with Chuck. In a
week, they became very close friends, just the three of them. Y/N
waved at him everymorning, they had lunch and dinner together, and
when they were free they spent the whole time together. Everybody
noticed how the Greenie liked the only girl in the Glade, also…
someone who shouldn’t bother about it.
didn’t say anything when Thomas asked Alby if he could go with Y/N
instead of himself, but he started to feel a weird emotion every time
he saw the two of them play near the hammocks. Y/N had also started
to avoid him, and he couldn’t understand why. He understood that they
liked each other. Thomas liked her way more, but she was starting to
answer his feelings. Those should be good news for him, shouldn’t
they? He didn’t love Y/N as she loved him, he preferred to remain
why did he feel so bad at the thought? Newt saw again the two of them
playing, and stayed quiet untill he saw Thomas carrying her on his
shoulders, making her laugh and scream. -Put me down, you shank!- she
yelled, laughing as crazy. -C'mon, Tommy, I’m gonna throw up!
you won’t!- he exclaimed, walking around the Glade with Y/N. -It’s
Tommy, put me down!- she yelled again, beating a hand on his back.
-Thomas, put me down now!
they kept on laughing, and other Gladers stopped what they were doing
to watch them amused.
Newt was so bloody done with them. -Hey!- he screamed, limping faster
in their direction. -Greenie, put Y/N down immediately!
frowned but obeyed, confused by the anger of the second in command.
-What’s wrong?- asked the guy, with an arm around Y/N waist. The girl
remained quiet, studying the blond and his expression.
distracting every one from their works. If you have free time don’t
spend it playing like shuck faces and help the other! We don’t like
slackers here, you both know it.
gave us our free time- murmured Thomas, ashamed and intimidated from
use it better. You’re bothering the Gladers, slinthead- Newt growled,
anger through his face.
finally spoke Y/N. -Go at the Homestead. I will be back in a few
Greenie looked at her confused, but she was looking straight in
Newt’s eyes. After a while, he nodded and went away. When he couldn’t
hear them no more, Y/N frowned and pushed Newt. -What the shuck is
wrong with you?
wrong with me?- repeated Newt. -You were bothering…
Gladers, yeah, I got that- she clenched her jaw, starting to be angry
as him. -But I don’t think it’s true. We were bothering you.
say bloody bullshits like this.
not saying bullshits, you piece of klunk!- Y/N screamed. -Why are you
acting like this? Why are you acting like you’re jealous?
I’ve noticed how you stare at us, okay? And don’t say otherwise! Why
can’t you leave me be happy for once?!
widened his eyes, left speechless from her words. -Jealous? What a…
That’s not bloody true!- he was stuttering, trying to lie, but when
he saw her skeptical face he felt a new anger in his chest. -I don’t
stare at you! I don’t care, okay? I don’t care about you, you can do
whatever you want, but don’t act like a dumb girl in front of
everyone, go hide in a shucking room with him if you want to play,
scream and do stupid things like you did till now. I don’t like you,
I’m not jealous! How can I? Just don’t be dumb!
didn’t understand that he overreacted. He didn’t understand that
every word he screamed was like a dagger right in her chest. He
didn’t understand anything he did to Y/N until he saw her eyes
watering. Y/N clenched her jaw and gulped her pain, looking straight
in his eyes. -Be dumb, huh?
opened his mouth to apologize, but he couldn’t find the right words.
Y/N started crying, sobbing quietly, but a few Gladers came near
them, Alby included. -Y/N, I…
didn’t let him talk. She punched him in the face with all her
strenght, making him fall on the ground. -I hate you- she cried.
Then, she ran away.
stayed with Y/N while she was crying, both hiding in the Deadheads.
She was angry and in pain, but she didn’t say anything. She
apologized only for being late, but Thomas didn’t bother about it. He
tried to comfort her, hugging her tightly. -I hate him.- she sobbed.
you don’t- Thomas smiled, caressing her hair. -You love him.
do you know it, Tommy?
noticed how you stare at him. You want him so bad… But he doesn’t
want you. At least, he didn’t till now- the Greenie laughed sadly. He
understood that Newt was just jealous. He noticed when he yelled at
them. -He still hasn’t admit it to himself.
so bloody stupid- blurted Y/N, sitting up and leaving from his arms.
-I’m sorry, Tommy.
he smiled. -We’re still friends, ain’t we? It’s okay. I knew you’d
never be mine.
so bloody wise.
laughed, ruffling her hair, but a voice talker before he could
answer. -Bloody is my word.
Greenie turned to see the second in command stand a few metres away,
mortified and with a swollen cheekbone. They looked at each other,
and Newt mimed “sorry, Tommy” with his lips. Thomas shrugged,
smiling a bit, but Y/N didn’t even move, focused on ignoring him. The
guys sighed in sync. -I’m gonna occupy a table with Chuck for dinner-
said the Greenie in a low voice. -See you there.
promised himself to thank the Newbie later, since he forgot his so
easily. -Y/N- he called quietly, limping slowly next to her. -Y/N,
can you look at me?
still ignored him, turning her face away from him. -Please. I need to
bloody see your eyes- Newt sighed. -Please. Y/N, please.
hesitated again, but then she turned to face him, without bothering
to wipe her tears. -What do you want now?- she asked aggressively,
biting her bottom lip at the sight of his purple cheekbone.
want to apologize- whispered Newt, sitting down in front of the girl.
-I shouldn’t say those words. I’m sorry. You were right.
know that. Every one knows that I’m right. Every one beside you, of
course- Y/N laughed without amusement, skeptical to accept his
I know now too- Newt leaned to her. -You’re bloody right, I’m
jealous. So fucking jealous because I came too late. I love you, Y/N.
And I’m so sorry that I haven’t understood it before. I just… I
don’t know, the bloody dumbass here is me.
it is- Y/N didn’t smile, pretending to be still angry with him, but
her heart lost a beat when he said those three words. She still loved
him, and was so happy to hear his confession. She didn’t say anything
else, letting him suffer a little bit, and raise up a hand to touch
his cheekbone gently. -Does it hurt?
lot. But I’m not complaining, I know I deserved it.
smiled this time. -Another correct answer. Someone here made up his
prepared everything- joked Newt, smiling shyly in front of her. -But
I’m serious. I bloody love you.
shut up, slinthead- Y/N shutted him up by kissing him, pressing her
lips on his with a tiny smile. Newt froze, than grabbed her waist and
pressed her tightly against his chest. They moved their lips slowly,
until the blond licked her bottom lips, asking for the permission to
her mouth. Y/N answered deeping the kiss, not bothering to hide her
moan. She wrapped her arms around his neck and melted hearing him
moan too, while the blond was exploring her back under the tank top,
sighed at the sensation of her soft warm skin under the fingers. They
broke out after a while searching for air, breathing heavely, their
should talk too much often- he panted, smiling.
you’re crazy as hell- she laughed. The second in command brushed
their noses together.
crazy for you- he corrected her. With a big smile on their faces,
they kissed again.
