Those dark thoughts, in turn, were starting to make him wonder if Teresa hadnt been lying after all that last time theyd spoken, when shed said it was too late for Thomas and insisted that hed succumbed to the Flare rapidly, had become crazy and violent. That hed already lost his sanity before coming to this awful place. And underneath all that was the worry for his friends. What had happened to them, where were they?
What was the Flare doing to their minds? The madness crept in. Like a shivering rat looking for a spot of warmth, a crumb of food. And with every passing day came 2 an increasing anger so intense that Thomas sometimes caught himself shaking uncontrollably before he reeled the fury back in and pocketed it. He didnt want it to go away for good; he only wanted to store it and let it build.
Wait for the right time, the right place, to unleash it. WICKED had taken his life and those of his friends and were using them for whatever purposes they deemed necessary. No matter the consequences. And for that, they would pay. Thomas swore this to himself a thousand times a day. All these things went through his mind as he sat, back against the wall, facing the doorand the ugly wooden desk in front of itin what he guessed was the late morning of his twenty-second day as a captive in the white room.
He always did thisafter eating breakfast, after exercising. Hoping against hope that the door would openactually open, all the waythe whole door, not just the little slot on the bottom through which they slid his meals. Hed already tried countless times to get the door open himself. And the desk drawers were empty, nothing there but the smell of mildew and cedar. He looked every morning, just in case something mightve magically appeared while he slept.
And so he sat, staring at that door. White walls and silence.
The smell of his own body. Left to think about his friends Minho, Newt, Frypan, the other few Gladers still alive. Brenda and Jorge, whod vanished from sight after their rescue on the giant Berg. Harriet and Sonya, the other girls from Group B, Aris.
About Brenda and her warning to him after hed woken up in the white room the first time that things were going to get bad. Was she on his side or not? And how had she spoken inside his mind? But most of all, he thought 3 about Teresa. He couldnt get her out of his head, even though he hated her a little more with every passing moment. Her last words to him had been WICKED is good, and right or wrong, in his mind shed come to represent all the terrible things that had happened. Every time he thought of her, rage boiled inside him.
Maybe all that anger was the last string tethering him to sanity as he waited. Thirst for revenge. That was what he did for three more days.
On the twenty-sixth day, the door opened. What he would do, what he would say. How hed rush forward and tackle anyone who came in, make a run for it, flee, escape. But these thoughts were almost for amusement more than anything. No, hed need to plan out every detail before he made his move. When it did happenwhen that door popped open with a slight puffing sound and began to swing wideThomas surprised himself by how he reacted.
He did nothing. Something told him an invisible barrier had appeared between him and the desklike back in the dorms after the Maze. The time for action hadnt arrived. Not yet.
He felt only the slightest hint of surprise when the Rat Man walked inthe guy whod informed the Gladers of the last trial theyd been forced on, through the Scorch. Same long nose, same weasel-like eyes; that greasy hair, combed over an obvious bald spot that took up half his head. Same ridiculous white suit. He looked paler than the last time Thomas had seen him, though, and he was holding a thick folder filled with dozens of crinkled and messily stacked papers in the crook of his arm and dragging a straight-backed chair.
Good morning,Thomas, he said with a stiff nod. Without waiting for a response, he pulled the door shut, set his chair behind the desk and took a seat.
He placed the folder in front of him and opened 5 it, started flipping through pages. When he found what hed been looking for he stopped and rested his hands on top of everything. Then he flashed a pathetic grin, his eyes finally settling on Thomas.
When Thomas finally spoke, he realized that he hadnt done so in weeks, and his voice came out more like a croak. Itll only be good if you let me out.
Yes, yes, I know. No need to worryyoure going to be hearing plenty of positive news today.
Trust me. Thomas thought about that, ashamed that he let it lift his hopes, even for a second.
He should know better by now. Positive news? Didnt you choose us because you thought we were intelligent? Rat Man remained silent for several seconds before he responded. Intelligent, yes. Among more important reasons. He paused and studied Thomas before continuing. Do you think we enjoy all this? You think we enjoy watching you suffer? Its all been for a purpose, and very soon it will make sense to you.
The intensity of his words had built until hed practically shouted that last word, his face now red. Whoa,Thomas said, feeling bolder by the minute. Slim it nice and calm there, old fella. You look three steps away from a heart attack. The man stood from his chair and leaned forward on the desk, the veins in his neck standing out in taut cords.
He slowly sat back down, took several deep breaths. You would think that almost four weeks in this white box might humble a boy. But you seem more arrogant than ever.
So are you going to tell me that Im not crazy, then? Dont have the Flare, never did? Thomas couldnt help himself. The anger was rising in him and he felt like he was going to explode. But he forced 6 a calmness into his voice. Thats what kept me sane through all this deep down I know you lied to Teresa, that this is just another one of your tests. So where do I go next?
Gonna send me to the shuck moon? Make me swim across the ocean in my undies? He smiled for effect.
The Rat Man had been staring at Thomas with blank eyes throughout his rant. Are you finished? No, Im not finished. I want you to tell me everything. Oh, Thomas. The Rat Man said it quietly, as if delivering sad news to a small child. We didnt lie to you. You do have the Flare. A cold chill cut through the heat of Thomass rage. He was sure theyd lied to him beforethough Rat Man could just be lying again now.
He took a deep breath and shrugged, as if the news was something he heard every day. Well, even so, I havent started going crazy yet. At a certain pointafter all that time crossing the Scorch, being with Brenda, surrounded by Crankshed come to terms with the fact that hed catch the virus eventually.
But he told himself that for now he was still okay. Still sane. And that was all that mattered at the moment. Rat Man sighed. You dont understand. You dont understand what it is that I came in here to tell you. Why would I believe a word that comes out of your mouth? Thomas realized that hed stood up, though he had no memory of doing so.
His chest lurched with heavy breaths. He had to get control of himself. Rat Mans stare was cold, his eyes black pits. Regardless of whether this man lied to him, Thomas knew he was going to have to hear him out if he ever wanted to leave this white room. He forced his breathing to slow. He waited. After several seconds of silence, his visitor continued. I know 7 weve lied to you.
Weve done some awful things to you and your friends. But it was all part of a plan that you not only agreed to, but helped set in place. Weve had to take it all a little farther than wed hoped in the beginningtheres no doubt about that. However, everything has stayed true to the spirit of what the Creators envisionedwhat you envisioned in their place after they were.
Thomas slowly shook his head; he knew hed been involved with these people once, somehow, but the concept of putting anyone through what hed gone through was incomprehensible. You didnt answer me. How can you possibly expect me to believe anything you say? He recalled more than he let on, of course. Though the window to his past was caked with grime, revealing little more than splotchy glimpses, he knew hed worked with WICKED. He knew Teresa had too, and that theyd helped create the Maze.
Thered been other flashes of memory. Because, Thomas, theres no value in keeping you in the dark, Rat Man said. There is no official release date for The Death Cure movie. We speculate that the film adaptation will be released sometime in late Starring the same main cast.
