Jealousy (Requested)

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.

She 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.

She 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?

-No, 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.

-Ah, 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.

-Good 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?

-Let’s say fine. Gally is gonna make me the Greenie’s babysitter- she chuckled, shrugging. -It’s gonna be a hard day. What about you?

-Alby 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.

-Yeah, 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.

-See 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.


After 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.

-Yeah, 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 talking about.

-I 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.

-Fine, 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.

-You 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 house?

-Please, never speak about it ever again- whispered Thomas, going pale. Y/N laughed.

-Yeah, it’s shucking disgusting that place.

Newt smiled in silence. -Well, you seem to get along. I’ll come for him after lunch, good that?

Y/N 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.

-So, are you the Keeper of the Builders?- asked the boy, a bit shy.

-No, 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”.

Thomas smiled. -You’re the first one here that hasn’t called me Greenie at all.

-I 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 kill me.

They 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 day.

-I didn’t do that in purpose- Thomas defended himself. -I just…

-I know, Tommy- she laughed, putting a hand on his knee. -Calm down. It’s okay. It happens.

Thomas 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 themself.

They 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.

-Why are ya staring, Tommy?- she asked gently, bandaging his hand with a soft touch. He blushed even more, caught off guard.

-I… I was… You’re very beautiful and…- he stuttered, looking down to their hands. -I’m sorry. Your boyfriend probably will kill me.

-Boyfriend?- 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 otherwise?

-I thought… Gally… So you’re just friends?- the Greenie was still shy and made her laugh.

-Gally? Oh god, no!- she finished bandaging his hand, and left it on his knee. -I’m awfully single.

-And do you like someone here?- asked again the Greenie. Her smile died quickly at that question.

-I… 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?

Thomas 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.

-C'mon, 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.

Newt 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 friends.

Then 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!

-No, you won’t!- he exclaimed, walking around the Glade with Y/N. -It’s funny, y'know.

-Tommy! Tommy, put me down!- she yelled again, beating a hand on his back. -Thomas, put me down now!

-No!- they kept on laughing, and other Gladers stopped what they were doing to watch them amused.

Enough. Newt was so bloody done with them. -Hey!- he screamed, limping faster in their direction. -Greenie, put Y/N down immediately!

Thomas 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.

-You’re 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.

-Alby gave us our free time- murmured Thomas, ashamed and intimidated from that behavior.

-Well, use it better. You’re bothering the Gladers, slinthead- Newt growled, anger through his face.

-Tommy- finally spoke Y/N. -Go at the Homestead. I will be back in a few minutes.

The 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?

-What’s wrong with me?- repeated Newt. -You were bothering…

-The 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.

-Don’t say bloody bullshits like this.

-I’m 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?!

Newt 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!

Newt 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?

Newt 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…

Y/N 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.



Thomas 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.

-No, you don’t- Thomas smiled, caressing her hair. -You love him.

-How do you know it, Tommy?

-I’ve 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.

-He’s so bloody stupid- blurted Y/N, sitting up and leaving from his arms. -I’m sorry, Tommy.

-Why?- he smiled. -We’re still friends, ain’t we? It’s okay. I knew you’d never be mine.

-You’re so bloody wise.

Thomas laughed, ruffling her hair, but a voice talker before he could answer. -Bloody is my word.

The 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.

Newt 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?

Y/N still ignored him, turning her face away from him. -Please. I need to bloody see your eyes- Newt sighed. -Please. Y/N, please.

Y/N 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.

-I want to apologize- whispered Newt, sitting down in front of the girl. -I shouldn’t say those words. I’m sorry. You were right.

-We know that. Every one knows that I’m right. Every one beside you, of course- Y/N laughed without amusement, skeptical to accept his apologies.

-But 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.

-Yes, 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?

-A lot. But I’m not complaining, I know I deserved it.

Y/N smiled this time. -Another correct answer. Someone here made up his mind.

-I prepared everything- joked Newt, smiling shyly in front of her. -But I’m serious. I bloody love you.

-Oh, 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 body burning.

-I should talk too much often- he panted, smiling.

-Newt, you’re crazy as hell- she laughed. The second in command brushed their noses together.

-I’m crazy for you- he corrected her. With a big smile on their faces, they kissed again.

Notes: It’s kinda long. Sorry ‘bout that

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


   “Be careful out there today Y/N.” Newt warned his girlfriend. She giggled some and said, “I will be Newt. I always am.” He had his arms crossed as they discuss and she had her hands holding her gear to her body. “I know but, I’ve got an odd feeling about today.” He said a bit nervously, slightly chewing his bottom lip. “Hey, I’m the best Runner out here. There’s nothing to worry about.” She soothed. “I heard that you shank!” Minho called to her as he ran past them. She rolled her eyes at the fellow Runner before turning her attention back to Newt. He was giving her a look. “What?” She asked confused. “I don’t want you goin’ out there today, love. Whenever I don’t have a good feelin’, someone gets hurt really bad…or dies.” “Newt, I’ll be fine. I’m going out there.” She persisted. He exhaled through his nose, giving up, knowing she won’t let up. He took a step closer to her and put a hand on her cheek. “Alright, go out there and run like hell but you better get your shuckin’ self back to me.” She smiled at him saying, “I will.” 

She put her arms around his neck, pulling him in for a kiss. He put one hand on her waist and left the other on her cheek. He kissed her with all he had, fearing it would be his last. It made her breathless. Literally. She had to break apart first just to breathe. They were both breathing a bit heavily. Newt rested his forehead on hers and said, “Please come back to me.” She smiled reassuringly at him and said, “Always have, always will.” He pecked her lips again and said, “I love you.” “I love you too.” She barely uttered before Newt’s lips were back onto hers. He held her tightly to him but she didn’t mind. “Yo Newt, stop trying to eat my sister’s face off! We gotta go!” Minho called. They broke apart, rolling their eyes but blushing. He gave her one last kiss and said, “Promise.” “I promise I’ll come back.” She pecked his lips once more before leaving his grasp and jogging to Minho, calling back, “I love you!” He put his hands in his hoodie pocket, with a small smile, and called back, “I love you too!” After discussing some things for today’s running, her and Minho ran off out to their section. Newt stood for a bit longer, just looking at where the two had just been. He sighed and shook his head, ridding his mind of the thoughts that began to creep in. She’ll be fine, he assured to himself a number of times before actually ending up at the gardens. 


Meanwhile, Y/N and Minho ran the Maze, changing directions every few minutes and writing things down. At about lunch, they took a break. Y/N sat against a wall as she opened her bag for the much wanted food and water. “So,” Minho panted. She looked at him curiously as she opened her bottle of water and took a swig. “Can you and Newt not eat each other’s faces before we leave to go out here?” He asked, making Y/N almost choke on her water. She started coughing and sputtering a bit before wiping her mouth and asking, “What?” He shrugged as he joined her. “Jus’ sayin’. It would be nice.” He said in thought. She rolled her eyes at him and took out her sandwich. “I’ll have you know, he’s just worried about today. Sayin’ he has a bad feeling. But that’s it, he’s just worried.” Minho stopped mid-bite and looked at her, knowing Newt is usually the person who can tell if it’ll be a bad day…especially if he’s worried about one specific person “Did he have a specific person he was worried about?” He asked. She shrugged. “He just kept making me promise I would come back out of the Maze today. It’s not like I wouldn’t.” She said, taking a bite of her sandwich. Minho moved the sandwich between hands for a bit before saying, “Yeah, it’s not like you wouldn’t.” He assured to himself before practically devouring his sandwich, making up for the lost time he used in thought. 

To lighten the mood a bit, Minho said, “You’re the best Runner out here…except for me, of course, your better brother.” She rolled her eyes as she finished her sandwich. “Better at being a sassy teenage girl.” Y/N mocked. “Hey, I don’t act like a teenage girl.” He defended. “Sure you don’t Mr. hair gel.” She teased. “Shuck you.” He muttered. She laughed before drinking some more water. “We should get going.” She noted as she stood up, putting her things away. She looked at her watch. “We’ve got about four or five more hours until the walls close. Plenty of time to map this section.” “Ah yes,” Minho started. “Section number seven, one of the eight empty sections here.” “Hey, we’ve only been here for a year. It might change when the year’s up.” She encouraged. He grumbled something then said, “Yeah, you’re right.” “I know.” She sassed. He shook his head and said, “The only way I will ever be able to tell if you’re my sis’ or not is the level of sass we share.” She rolled her eyes and said, “Oh yeah, besides the fact we look completely different.” “I’m tellin’ ya, we’re related.” “I’m not denying that fact. I came up with that memory you shuck-face.” “I know. And I just happen to be older.” “Sure you are bro.” She teased again. The wall began to move. “That’s our signal!” Minho shouted over the sound of grinding concrete. They ran a bit before continuing their daily routine.

 Newt in the gardens was a nervous wreck. Whenever someone talked to him, he would be very jumpy or just snap at them. He would always be glancing up at the North wall, waiting to see her come through. When his shift was over, he immediately went to where she would be bounding in, straight to his arms. There was about half an hour before the doors closed. Almost all of the Runners were back by now. Newt was biting his lip and digging his nails into his arms as he had them crossed, waiting for his best friend and girlfriend to come out of this bloody Maze. Within ten more minutes, they came barreling through. Newt let out a long sigh of relief and held open his arms as his girlfriend jumped into them, kissing him on his lips. Newt was smiling uncontrollably from relief and happiness. “Told you I’d be back.” She muttered as they broke apart. He smiled and kissed her firmly on the lips. “Thank God you did.” He responded when they broke. “Oy, get your shuck self over here and help me map out the Maze!” Minho called to her. She started walking off but Newt grabbed her to his chest, making her laugh. “Newt, I’ve gotta go write up this map.” She protested. He littered a few quick kisses on her neck, muttering between them, “I know…I just…am really…bloody…happy you…came out.” She laughed again but released herself from him. “I’ll be back in a minute.” She assured. 

“Where’s Ben and George?” Someone asked. They both snap their heads to the walls. “Oh no…” Y/N muttered as people started collecting by the wall. There was only five minutes left before the walls closed. All of the boys, Y/N included, crowded by the walls, waiting for the other two Runners. Newt had his arm secured around Y/N’s waist as Minho came up beside them. Then everyone heard some grunts. “There they are!” Gally shouted. Everybody immediately started cheering for Ben to drag George who was injured. “Leave him Ben! Leave him!” A few of the boys shouted. Y/N looked at the ones who said that in complete shock and horror. They’ve been through so much and they are saying to just leave him? Y/N couldn’t believe it. She looked up at Newt to see his jaw clenched in anticipation and his eyes set on the two boys in front of him. She turned to see Minho shouting for them to hurry up, that they would make it. Ben then collapsed on the ground, causing a bigger uproar. He scrambled up to his feet and bolted, leaving George. The boys pulled Ben in, him collapsing back on the ground in relief. The boys swarmed him and asked questions, telling of their relief, of those sorts.

 Y/N looked back at George who was crying and begging for someone to come help him. She looked down in thought, chewing her bottom lip. She looked up at Newt who was smiling and joining the boys in their ruckus. She then looked at Minho and saw him on the ground beside Ben, asking for Med-jacks and asking Ben questions. She decided then what she must do. She leaned up and kissed Newt on his cheek. He looked down at her confused. “I love you.” She muttered with a small smile before pulling from his grasp and running into the Maze. “Y/N!” He yelled, missing her by mere meters. This caught the attention of the other Gladers. They paused and looked to the Maze then all got to their feet, instructing her to get back. Minho stood next to Newt and yelled just as loud as him for her to come back. 

She stood just beyond the walls inside, her pulse being heard. What did I just do? She asked herself. Then she looked at George and snapped out of it. She rushed to him and threw his arm over her shoulders. “Thank you, thank you so much, thank you.” He blubbered. “We’re not out yet.” She reminded. She started dragging him back when the deafening sound of the walls beginning to close. Everyone became silent then roared louder than previously. “Come on!” They encouraged. She began pulling George with all of the strength she could muster. She was almost there. So close. She looked up and realized; Only one can leave. The thought hit her like a ton of bricks, but she knew the right answer. When she was close enough to the wall, she pushed George as hard as she could. In the last few moments of the Maze wall closing, all she saw was Newt and Minho. She saw their shocked expressions and saw the tears starting to build in their eyes. She didn’t know what to do in their last moments of ever seeing each other again. She took a step back and gave them both a nod before the wall closed. 

Minho and Newt ran to the wall, screaming her name and began pounding on it, trying to get it to open. Then a loud scream pierced the air, making everyone go silent and pause. Newt and Minho looked at each other, tears beginning to stream down their faces as they realized…she’s gone. Newt closed his eyes and faced the wall, resting his forehead on it. He slid to the ground onto his knees and slumped his shoulders, defeated. Minho turned and pressed his back to the wall before he too slid to the ground, his knees to his chest. He was staring blankly at the Glade, not meeting anyone’s eyes. Then the thought hit him. He squeezed his eyes shut and buried his head in his knees as he wrapped his arms around his legs. They both started crying hard, sobs tearing through their throats. No one knew how to react. No one has seen Minho and Newt like this since…well, since Newt’s accident. Alby got everyone to leave, to turn in for the night. When he returned to the two, it was dark and they were still crying, not moving from their spots.

 He sighed and crouched down to their level. “Guys…you should head back to the Homestead and get some rest. It’s been a long day. For the both of you.” He said quietly and slowly. Minho lifted his head first, his eyes bloodshot and his nose running. “Alby, do you know what it’s like to lose a sister? A twin sister? It’s like losing your other half and you feel completely lost and vulnerable. So can you shucking leave me alone to mourn?” Minho snapped before burying his face back into his legs. Alby sighed again and put a hand on Newt’s shoulder. Newt tensed a lot and Alby just now realized how much he was shaking. “Newt,” Alby didn’t know where to start for his second in command. He’s already been through enough and that girl has helped Newt just as much as he had helped her. She’s helped everyone. How can he tell his best friend his girlfriend is gone and he needs to get rest? He can’t. That’s the thing. Newt finally braced himself with his hands on the ground, now resting on all fours. “Do you understand…how bloody hard it is…to lose her? Do you know how hard it is to accept that…after everything we’ve been through together…after how much she’s helped me?” His voice was horse and rough from the crying. “She was my world Alby…my everything…” He sucked in a harsh breath before letting out a hard sob. “And now she’s gone.” Newt could barely hold himself up as he started crying again. Alby let go of him and exhaled. “Just, try to get some rest guys.” Alby said before he got up and walked away, despite how worried he was for his friends.

 Only sobs and some whimpers were shared between the two boys for the night. Finally, Newt sat up and turned, leaning his back against the cold concrete wall. His eyes welled up with tears once more when he thought how much of a contrast this cold wall was to her warmth. She should be with him right now, safe in his arms, in their bed. She should be running her fingers through his hair right now as they talked about anything and everything. She should be with him so he could kiss her and tell her how much he loves her. Instead…she’s…he couldn’t think about it. “I’m going out there to look for her tomorrow.” Minho said suddenly. Newt looked up at him with tears still streaming down his face. Minho was looking at him seriously even though his eyes were still bloodshot. “And you’re coming with me.” Newt widened his eyes. “Minho…I don’t know if I can-” “You can and you will. I’m not taking any of these other shanks out there with me. You and I of all people should be the ones to look for her. She’s your shucking girlfriend. Now if you’re telling me you don’t have enough balls to go out there and possibly find her because you’re scared of some stupid klunk, then by all means, stay here and miss the possibility of her jumping into your arms unscathed.” Newt glared at Minho then looked down. “You’re getting my hopes up.” Newt muttered, wiping his nose. “No, I’m giving you some kind of hope because you have none right now. I’ve been thinking long and hard while the two of us were blubbering babies. We still have a chance of finding her.” Newt wiped his eyes and took in a shaky breath. “Fine. I’ll go with you.” “I was going to drag you with me if you disagreed anyways.” Newt allowed a small smile tug his lips but it didn’t quite reach his eyes before any trace of it left his face. They were both looking up at the Glade around them in a sort of trance. “I really hope you’re right.” Newt suddenly said. Minho sighed and said, “So am I.” 

When morning rolled around, the two immediately set out to find her. Minho had all of his things packed and Newt only wielded his machete. Minho inspected the area and decided the Grievers went left. Newt only followed as they went down different paths. As they passed one, something caught Newt’s eye. “Minho!” He called. Minho stopped and came back around to him. New wasn’t looking at Minho though. He was looking at the pile of bloodied clothing. Newt stared at it in shock and slowly walked to it. He crouched down and picked up the blue shirt, immediately identifying it as hers. It was covered in blood…in her blood. Newt gripped it tightly in his hand and closed his eyes as he leaned against the wall again. Minho slowly approached behind him and saw the large puddle of blood. He practically collapsed next to Newt as they both realized…she really is gone. The thought seemed to hit them at the same time because they both appeared to have the air knocked out of their lungs. They sat there in silence for a few minutes before Newt let a quiet sob leave his lips. He put a hand over his mouth and squeezed his eyes shut again as he held the shirt to him.

 A year has passed since the tragic day. It was time for the arrival of the new greenie. Newt and Minho saw the new greenie and Newt helped him out loads. They were leaning against a log by the bonfire. “Here, put some hair on your chest.” Newt said as he handed the new greenie, Thomas, Gally’s recipe. He took a sip then spit it out. “Oh my God, what is that?” He asked. Newt laughed and said, “I have no idea. It’s Gally’s secret recipe.” They were quiet for a moment. “You know he saved your life today.” “Yeah well, he’s still an asshole.” Thomas muttered. “Hey Newt, I have a question.” “Surprise, surprise. What is it now Tommy?” He asked with a half-smile. “So, there are no girls in the Glade.” “I’ve already told you that. No.” “Has there ever been?” he asked. Newt looked ahead and sat in thought for a moment. It started hurting again. “Enough questions, Greenie.” He said, standing up. “I’m going in for the night. See you in the morning, Greenie.” Tommy gave Newt a nod. Newt had been sitting in his room for a while, just staring at his wall. There was a knock. “Come in.” He called. The door opened revealing Minho. “Hey shank.” He smiled. “Hey slint-head. Whaddya want?” Newt asked. Minho came in and closed the door behind him. “The greenbean started askin’ ‘bout previous people here. He saw the wall and when I saw him by it, I decided to go and have a nice little chat with him. He told me you left when you asked about any girls being here previous.” Newt tensed visibly. “Slim it. I’m not going to go into it too much.” Minho assured before coming over and sitting next to him, making his bed dip some.

 “You know he’s just curious Newt. It’s dangerous but he’s just curious.” Newt clenched his jaw before sighing. “I know. It still hurts though Minho. I still miss her like crazy.” Newt admitted. Minho clapped him on his back. “I know, man. I know.” Newt looked down and rested his elbows on his knees. He half-laughed. “Do you remember the sass fights you two would have? She would always have a smart comeback if she couldn’t think of anything.” Minho laughed a bit. “Yeah. I remember. Remember when she would steal my hair gel and hide it all around the Glade?” Newt chuckled at that. “Yeah. You would be ranting all day and you two would be sassing each other until you gave up and she gave it back.” Minho chuckled some. “She would be laughing so hard because I would walk past it three or four times.” Newt’s smile turned sad. “Her smile would just light up the Glade…and her laugh. She had the most amazing laugh. It would be impossible to not laugh at her laugh.” Newt looked down. “God I miss her.” He said as his eyes started welling up with tears. Minho patted his back. “Me too Newt. Me too.” Minho left a little later and Newt went to bed, just thinking of her all night.

 The next day, everyone was awoken by the alarm going off again. Newt woke up instantly and threw a shirt over his head and ran outside with everyone else to see what all the commotion was. Newt pushed his way to the front of the crowd that was around the Box. He looked down at it before looking up at Minho and Alby. Alby, Minho, and Gally helped him open the two doors. Newt jumped down first and waited for his eyes to adjust then gasped. He recognized her Y/H/C hair anywhere. He got down on his knees and lifted her head onto his lap. She was unconscious but breathing. He brushed hair out of her face, staring at her in shock and amazement. Her eyes began to flutter open. She squinted her eyes before saying in a small voice, “Newt?” Newt gasped, a huge smile coming across his face. “Y/N!” He exclaimed before practically tackling her in a hug. The boys all cheered and Minho jumped down into the Box. She woke up a bit more and threw her arms around him and exclaimed, “Newt!”

 He pulled her up to sit up straight and hugged her tightly. She hugged back just as tight as she began to cry. “Oh my God, Newt, I missed you so much.” She cried into his shoulder. He pulled from her for a moment and held her face in his hand. “You’re alive! You’re bloody alive!” Newt exclaimed happily as tears fell down his cheeks. He then crashed his lips onto hers. She kissed him back with as much passion as she could muster as she tangled her fingers into his hair. They were both smiling into the kiss. “Yo shank, can you stop eating my sister’s face off?” Minho joked. They pulled away from each other and Y/N’s eyes met Minho’s. She launched herself to him and hugged him tightly. “I missed you Minho.” She said quietly and sincerely. He hugged her too and said, “I missed you too Y/N.” She was still crying from happiness and Minho teared up a little when they hugged but when she pulled from him and saw him, she started laughing. “Is my big bro actually crying for me?” She asked faking astonishment. “Oh shut up you shank.” She laughed again and threw her arms back around her brother. “You know you missed me.” She teased through tears. “Of course.” He replied. He pulled from her again and said, “Let’s get you out of this Box.” She nodded and wiped her eyes.

 She stood up and playfully pushed Minho as he tried to stand, making him lose his balance and fall back. They both laughed. Y/N climbed out of the Box and helped both Minho and Newt out. Newt didn’t let go of her hand as he got out. He held it tightly and made sure she was close. All of the guys patted her on the back and welcomed her back. Someone said there’s going to be a huge bonfire tonight. Some of the Gladers didn’t understand what was going on because they came up in the year Y/N hadn’t been there. After everyone had dispersed, Newt dragged Y/N back to their room and closed the door behind them, locking it. He turned back around to his girlfriend who was sitting on the bed, flattening out creases as she began to tear up. “Oh, love.” Newt said quietly as he walked to their bed with his arms out. He sat next to her and she practically latched onto him as she hugged him. A small sob escaped her lips as she buried her face into his shoulder. “I m-missed you so m-much.” She cried quietly. He stroked her hair and back, breathing in her scent. “I missed you too, love. I missed you so, so much.” He said quietly. He picked her up and took them both further into the bed before setting her down in his lap and continued to comfort her. 

“It was so scary…” She trailed off. “What happened, baby?” She held onto him a little tighter and sobbed a few times before calming down a little and responding. “Grievers chased after me and one of them got me. I thought I was dead but when I woke up, I was in a lab. People were studying me and then I found out about the world out of here.” She shook her head and sobbed again. “We have to get out of here. It’s terrifying out of here but we need to leave or everyone will die.” She sobbed. “We only have one more month to get out.” She cried into his shoulder. Panic flared in his chest slightly but honestly, nothing was bothering him right now. His Y/N was back and that’s all that mattered to him. “We will, love. Don’t you worry about that right now. It’s my job and Alby’s job to worry about that kind of stuff. Not yours, understand? I want you to relax and stay here with me, alright?” He asked. She nodded and held onto him a little tighter. “I’m not going anywhere. I promise.” She said muffled by his shirt. He smiled to himself and said, “I know love. I’m not either.”
