I've been sitting with Max for five days. I spend every moment with him, because he can puss away any moment. I let Julia disappear without saying goodbye. I won't Max die without saying it."N-newt" he says and I focus on him."Yes?""I don't think I'm gonna meet her." He says "I won't meet Julia." He says like five year old little girl who's ice cream fell to the floor."Shh… Don't worry about it. I know you'll meet her." I say "You need to have faith.""I do, but I know what's happening. I know what's going to happen. I'm already fourteen, you know?""I do." I say. He closes his eyes. "Max?" I ask. "Max" I yell. "Medjacks!" I scream and they run in here."She would like you." He must hear me, because he smiles."I would like her too." Someone takes me out of the room. I don't know who takes me, because I see only tears in my eyes.
It's been three months since Max died. I can't say I'm better. I won't be better. It happened too fast. He was too young.New newbie appeared month ago and he's even younger. He's thirteen. His name's Chuck.
Gally jumps into the box and takes out of it a boy with dark hair. He's probably my age. What none of us expects is that he's going to run. I think for a moment about making him a runner, but his face meets with ground second later.
The boy is Thomas in three days he survived a night in the maze and new greenie came. It's a girl. She's not Julia.
