Thomas had began a new life standing up, surrounded by cold darkness and stale dusty air. He does not know where he is or why he is in the glad.
Thomas's back hit against a hard matal wall of a corner of the cage. Sinking into the floor of the Maze, pulled his legs up tight against his body, hoping his eyes would soon adjust to the darkness.
Thomas doesn't want to be stuck in the cage, he is so confused why he has to be in the glade. He would probably rather be home with his family if he has one.
Everyone at the glad has been not so nice to Thomas, when a boy Newt asked him how old he was he didn't remember how old. Newt was talking to Thomas about how he doesn't know who his parents are, and how he really wants to just get home already and not be heading into the Maze. People who go in the Maze either end up dying, getting out or just getting hurt.
For Thomas to be able to stay alive he has to hold on to the vines and swing to get to the other one. There are many obstacle courses he has to do for him to make it threw the Maze.
Thomas made it through the Maze, some people are surprised he made it and others are happy for him. Thomas was upset because Newt always wanted to meet his own parents and never got a chance to.
