Thomas decided immediately to enter the office with his friends. He tried first of all to speak to Mrs. Page; he really wanted her to explain Johnson’s death. They spoke quite a long time together, and she revealed that the WICKED had lost any hope to find a cure. Humanity was going to disappear.
Omg we need to tell Brenda...
Mrs. Page wasn’t such a bad person. She decided to euthanize Johnson because she didn’t want him to be a crank. She gave Thomas all the answers he needed, and finally told him to reach an uncontaminated and uninhabited island where he could live with his immune friends. She herself wouldn’t go : she wasn’t immunized.
Quickly,cranks are coming !!!
The small group left her alone as quick as possible, because some cranks had escaped from their jail. Sonya called Brenda to tell her the whole story. In the meantime, Thomas discovered that his best friend Newt had caught the flare. He hadn’t told them before, letting everybody think he was an immune. His condition worsened rapidly, and he asked Thomas to kill him. His sister Sonya didn’t agree but …
It was what he wanted
Thomas couldn’t do anything but kill his friend. He couldn’t let him suffer and he jabbed him with a syringe .Afterwards he felt very sad and he cried for a long time over his best,friend’s dead body, but Teresa forced him to move forward.
Thomas who had recovered all his lucidity, guided all his people to the Passage: It was a big, chestnut painted door, named « Transplat ». They just had to cross it to be in another place. They all went through very quickly.
On the other side of the chestnut door, a new life began. They reached a verdurous island surrounded by small wooden huts. Thomas decided to organise shifts in front of the « Transplat », to prevent an invasion of cranks. He assigned activities to everybody. He had become the leader while saving his friends and the other Immunes. He was made of the stuff of heroes; he was courageous, extremely strong and really goodhearted. At last, he would be able to rest and be in mourning for his good friend Newt.
