My interpretation of The Maze Runner

1. Where am I?

It's been 10 years since the Gladers and Crystal escaped the Maze, went through the Scorch, and eliminated WICKED all together. Newt and Crystal are happily married with two wonderful children named Austin who was 10 and Annabelle who was 8. Her brother Thomas and one of his best friends Minho lives with them as well. The rest of the Gladers moved on with their lives. But Crystal still remembers how she and Newt met and everything they went through.

Crystal's POV

"Mommy?" Annabelle asked me. "Yes darling." I replied. "How did you and daddy meet?" She asked. I looked over at Newt and smiled. "Well it's a funny and cute story." I replied and began the story.


I stood there in the box like an idiot looking at Thomas while the blonde haired boy who I presumed was Newt and the rest of the boys stared at me. "What! Is there something on my face?" I asked. "What? No! It's just that y-your--" "Newt don't just stand there help her out if not I will." A black boy said. "Alright Ace" Newt replied.

Newt climbed out of the box and walked over to Thomas and asks,"Do you know her Tommy?" Thomas shrugs. “How do you not know me Thomas? I know you.” I say. “I’m sorry but I’ve never met you.” Thomas finally says.

The black boy I assumed was Ace helped me out of the box. Once I got to my feet, I saw all the boys. A boy with short brown hair who looked pissed off says, “We’ve never had a girl in the Glade before? What if she’s a spy?” I immediately punched him in the face and bolted for the Maze. "Hey calm down!" Thomas ran towards me and tried to calm me down. "What is this place?" I began freaking out. "You're in the Maze" a Chinese boy replied.

"Who are you?" I asked. "My name's Minho" the Chinese boy said. Then all the boys decided to introduce themselves.

"This is Jack" He pointed to a kid with short brown hair who looked pissed. "This is Frank" Minho pointed to another black boy. "And this is Newt" Minho said pointing to the blonde haired boy who was behind me. "Nice to meet you all" I smiled as Minho finished introducing the Gladers. "So what's your name Greenie?" Frank asked. "Crystal" I replied. "That's a pretty name" Newt said. "Thank you" I smiled. "Well Crystal it's nice to meet you and we're glad your here." Ace responded. "You as well. Why?" I replied. "Bc you're the first girl we've had in years." Minho said. I was shocked.

Out of the corner of my eye I could feel Thomas staring at me from behind. Ace and Minho were looking at him as if wanting him to say something but he didn't.

"So where am I exactly?" I asked. "You're in the Glade" Minho replied. "Great! I guess I'll need someone to show me around then." I said sarcastically. “I’ll do it.” Thomas raises his hand. I heard a bunch of ohh’s and awe’s from the boys.

Newt stopped what he was doing and glared at Thomas and I.

"I guess we'll leave you two alone then." Minho smirked at Thomas and gave him a death glare. “See you guys lather then.” Newt mumbled and walked off followed by Minho and the other Gladers. Thomas and I stood there for a moment then he began talking.

"So how do you remember your name so quickly? When the rest of us came up from the box, we didn't remember anything for months." Thomas said. "Honestly I don't know. But I somehow I remembered you. And you say you’ve never met me before." I shrugged. "That’s weird and true.” Thomas says.

"So whenever Newt isn't around I'm in charge." Thomas said as we began walking and he explained to me that each Glader had a specific job to do and that the Maze was split into four sections: the Homestead, Gardens, Blood House, and Deadheads. So the tour began and Thomas showed me the Homestead (North West) which is where they have these meetings called Gatherings and the boys sleep. At the back of the Homestead is the Slammer, a place that functions as a jail.

Next are the Gardens (North East) where crops grew and the water is pumped, as it never rains in the Glade. After that, Thomas showed me the Blood House (South East) where livestock are raised and slaughtered. "Oh goodness! I would hate to work there." I said. "I agree. The Blood House is horrid." Thomas replied. Lastly, we walked into the woods and came upon a bunch of graves. "What is this place?" I asked. "This is the Deadheads (South West) which is where we bury Gladers who have died in the Maze or have been stung by Grievers." Thomas answered.

"What's a Griever?" I asked. "Trust me you don't want to know." Thomas replied. "I guess I'll have to find out sometime." I sighed. "Hehe" Thomas laughed. "What's so funny?" I questioned. "Nothing." Thomas said. "Ok. Sorry if I keep pelting you with questions but what are these specific jobs the Gladers have to do?" I asked.

Thomas responded with, "Each job has a Keeper which is a leader for that specific job. As for the jobs, we have the Builders who's Keeper is Jack and they build new/upgrade buildings. Next are the Bricknicks who have a similar job as the Builders but they're tasked with repairing buildings. Next we have the Sloppers and the Keeper is Chris. They do dirty tasks, housework, basically any job the Glader's don't want to do; they're treated as the lowest ranked job and is given to Gladers who are bad at any other job. Then we have the Baggers who are our guards and deal with dead bodies. After them there's the Cooks and Frank is the Keeper of them. The cooks cook and prepare meals for the Gladers. Next are the Track-hoes, these are Gladers who work in the gardens-tilling, weeding, planting and harvesting and their Keeper is Zack."

I listened intently to Thomas as he explained everything and I couldn't help but crack up. Thomas saw me laugh and suddenly stopped talking. "What's so funny?" He cocked his head slightly which made me laugh even more. "A-Are you a Track-hoe?" I snickered. "Yes" Thomas replied. I was clutching my stomach from laughing so hard that I almost fell over. "Omg! Are you ok?" Thomas looked worried. He grabbed my waist and helped me stand as I held onto his shoulder.

We looked into each other's eyes. Newt and Minho were near us as Thomas began to lean in then I heard Minho shout and make kissy noises. I chuckled when I heard him "Slim it guys. Don't make me bloody hurt you." Thomas shouted to them. "Sorry Thomas. We weren't trying to ruin your moment." Minho called. Newt stood there watching us angrily.

End of Flashback

"Awe! How cute!" Annabelle smiled. "Is there more?" Austin asked sitting on his father's lap. "Of course there is son. Did you think that was the end of the story." Newt replied staring me down.
