Chapter 7

Newt's POV

It was now morning. I woke up and yawned. I went to the Homestead.

Maisie was asleep in a deep slumber. she wasn't woken up by the light yet. I sighed. I tapped her on the shoulder. She groaned then turned over and opened her eyes to see me staring down at her. She blinked trying to get the grogginess away from her eyes. I smiled at her.

"Get up Maz." I said. Maz.

"Yeah, good morning to ya. What times it?" she said.

"Seven o'clock, Greenie." I said with a mocking smile. "Figured I'd let you sleep in."

She looked at me confused. "Why?"

I looked away blushing. "Cause you look pretty when you sleep."

She blushed and giggled slightly. "Thank you."

I smiled. "You're welcome."

"Seven o'clock? What are you guys, a bunch of farmers?!" she asked.

I rolled my eyes. "Uh...yeah, now that ya mention it." I plopped myself beside her and sat cross legged. "Gonna put you with the Track-hoes today Greenie. Might suit ya fancy then slicin' up bloody piggies and such."

She rolled her eyes. "Aren't you supposed to stop calling me that?"

"What, bloody piggies?"

She giggled. "No, Greenie. I'm not the newest Newbie. Roxy is. My name is Maisie."

"Would ya mind if I call ya Maz?" I asked hoping she would say yes.

"Not at all." She replied. I smiled.

She smiled back. "What's a Track-hoe?"

"It's what we call the guys workin' their butts off in the Gardens - tilling, weeding, plantings and such." I said looking around.

"Who's the Keeper?" She asked.

"Zart. Nice guy, as long you don't sluff on the job, that is." I replied.

"Oh.." she said nodding.

I heard a grumble. Maisie heard it too. Maisie looked down and it was coming from her. She blushed. I chuckled softly.

"Let's go get something to eat." I said getting up. "And hope we don't bloody choke."

She nodded and got up. We walked towards the Kitchen. We ate our food. Roxy sat with us. Maisie smiled at me. I smiled back.

I was sitting under a tree. I sighed softly.

"Newt." she said. I ignored her. I sighed. I hadn't heard her.

"Newt." Chuck said. I ignored him.

"Newt!" Maisie said louder. I opened my eyes and looked at her.

"Yeah, Maz?" I asked her.

"You okay?" She asked.

"Yeah. Just relaxin' my eyes for a bit." I replied.

Maisie nodded. I smiled at her. Maisie got up. I saw her walk towards the Deadheads. I got up and followed her.

Suddenly I stepped on a twig making it snap. I heard Maisie gasp and saw her turn around.

"Who's there?" she said looking around. I made another twig snap. She gasped again. I walked through the trees into view. She sighed in relief when she saw it was me.

"Hey Maz," I said.

"Goodness Newt, you scared the living daylights out of me!" she said. I chuckled.

"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you," I said. I got closer to her. "What you doing here?"

"Just looking. These names sound familiar and I don't know why."

"Oh." I said. I put my arm around her. She blushed slightly. She turned to face me. I looked down at her, my blue eyes looking down at her brown eyes. Then I leaned down and kissed her. She blushed. I pulled away and blushed. My heart pounded.

"Come on, we should get back." I said. She nodded, still a bit speechless. We walked back into the centre of the Glade near The Box.

It was already getting dark. How long were we in the Deadheads?

I went to get something to eat because I was hungry. Maisie was sitting next to Roxy eating her dinner. The Runners came back The Maze Doors closed.

I walked into the Homestead. I saw Maisie asleep. I smiled softly.

Then I walked to where I normally slept. I stared at the sky thinking about Maisie and the kiss.

I fell asleep.
