Adventures in The Maze Runner
Summary: When Maisie is sucked into the world of The Maze Runner, she meets the Gladers and has to help them find their way out of the maze. What will happen?
I was in the library looking for a new book to read. I had read Percy Jackson, Divergent, Hunger Games and Maximum Ride and I didn't know what to read next. I scanned the shelves for a book then I came across a book called The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I got the book out of the shelf and read the blurb. Sounds like a really good book.
I brought it to the desk to take it out to read at home. Henry saw me and sighed. I looked at him in annoyance. A smart arse comment was coming. I knew it.
"I was going to read that!" he said. I rolled my eyes.
"Well, tough. I got it first." I said. Henry rolled his eyes and glared at me. I glared back. Henry walked off to talk to his friends. I smirked. It was end of lunch and I waited for my friend Rebecca. She worked behind the desk. In the school library, you can be a library assistant. So yeah. We talked about stuff.
We walked to form. I was in E2 and she was in R4. She's in the year younger than me. I'm in year 10 and she is in Year 9. I said goodbye to her and walked to my form room. I talked to my friends, Dominika, Emilie, Eve, Erin and Rachel.
The bell rang and I went to 4th period which was Travel & Tourism. (most boring lesson ever) It was okay, I guess. I got to talk to my friends who are called Aimee and Neve. Still, it was very boring. Then after Travel & Tourism, it was PE. We did dodgeball in PE. Which was awesome. I like dodgeball.
Then, after PE, I walked to the shops because mum was picking me and my sister up at the shops. I talked to my friend while we walked to the shops. I said goodbye to my friend and got into the car. We went home. I went on the computer, watched a few YouTube videos and just talked to my friend on the phone.
I went to bed and started to read Maze Runner. I got up to Chapter 5.
Suddenly there was a flash and everything went black.
I woke up in darkness. I had a splitting headache. Groaning softly to myself, I looked around but I couldn't see anything. I put my arm out and I felt a metal wall. It seems like I was in a metal box. I think. I wasn't sure.
My name is Maisie.
That's all I could remember. What was my last name? I couldn't remember. Many faces appeared but then they went blurry. Smears of colours. It was like my memory had been wiped.
I stood up and looked around. There was a sudden shudder and I shrieked and fell down. I walked back and my back struck the metal wall and I slinked to the floor. I was so confused. I wanted to scream. I wanted to cry. I sat there, waiting. Harsh sounds of chains and pulleys made me jump. My stomach knotted with nervousness and confusion.
The lift was going up and up. All I could do was wait. A minute passed. Maybe two. I didn't know. I remember school. Vividly. I didn't remember anything. I tried to remember but my mind went blank. I sighed in frustration.
Suddenly with a groan the room halted and I was violently thrown to the side. That's how unbalanced I am. I shrieked in surprise. I sat back up and looked around. Everything went silent. Minutes passed. I looked around again.
I punched the wall. "OW! DAMN IT!" I shook my hand which was stinging like crazy. I just punched a metal wall.
Suddenly there was a loud clang.
I jumped in surprise. A straight line of light appeared. I squinted. Then the light expanded. I covered my eyes. I wasn't used to the light after being in darkness. I heard voices. I tried to get at the back of the box thing as I possibly can.
"What the?" said one voice. "Holy..."
"What is it?" said another. I tried to see who was talking but I was trying to get used to the light. I blinked a few times. I saw a boy with green eyes with long blond hair looking down at me. He looked shocked. I stared at him confused.
"It's a girl." said the voice who talked first.
"That's what I said you shuck-face."
"I got dibs!" said another voice.
"Shut your holes."
"I bet she's cute."
"What does she look like?"
"How old is she?"
"I said shut your holes!"
I was hit with a wave of confusion and fear. I blinked in confusion. Fear squeezed my chest like a lemon. I looked up at them blinking furiously. I saw shadows. I looked up. A tiny whimper escaped my lips. I looked down. My palms were sweating.
I took a deep breath and looked up again.
"Can you guys get me out of this box-type thing? It smells like feet down here!" I shouted up to the voices.
"Okay. Hold on!" said the voice.
They threw down a rope and grabbed onto it. They hoisted me up. They helped me out of the box. There was a group of boys. They were all looking at me shocked. I stared at them. They were teenagers. Kids.
I couldn't think. How old was I? I looked at them. They looked at me. They brushed the dust off my clothes and brushed the hair out of my face.
I just blinked in confusion.
"Nice to meet ya shank." said a dark skinned boy looking at me. "Welcome to the Glade."
