Thomas woke up in a box. It was an elevator. He didn't know who he was other than his name. When the box opened, he was surrounded by boy.
I want to be a runner.
Thomas saw the they were in a glade surrounded by walls so high that no one could ever climb them. He heard a boy screaming in the distance and was told it was Ben who was going through the changing.
What is THAT?!
That's a Griever, Greenie.
Every night the doors close. Thomas wonders if they are keeping the boys prisoner or keeping them safe from danger. He sees people running out of the maze and learns that they are called Runners.
We've never had two Greenies in a month before!
Why is everyone freaking out?
Thomas and Chuck went to the garden to sleep that night.
You don't know what you're talking about. Go to sleep.
Newt woke Thomas up and took him to the wall. There was a window and Thomas saw a terrifying creature. Newt told Thomas it was a Griever. Later, Alby gave Thomas a tour of the Glade.
While Alby was giving Thomas a tour an alarm sounded that told the Gladers the box was coming up with a Greenie. The box only comes up once a month with a new person and the box just came yesterday so everyone was freaking out.
