Thomas presses for more information. “Know anything else about love-bug bites?”
“I could be wrong. Everything is hazy… but I’m pretty sure it will only last a few days. If Thomas gets too far away, Newt will feel pain in his chest.”
The runners find a new bug in the maze, and Dan brings one back to the Glade. It bites Newt, and he immediately falls in love with Thomas.
“I need some money.”
Smurf smiles sweetly and grabs her wallet from her back pocket.
“Sure, baby. What for?”
Deran looks down at his feet. “It’s Adrian’s 17th birthday,” he mumbles.
Adrian’s birthday party is in a few hours and Deran put off getting a gift until now. He was worried about finding the perfect present.

Adrian smiles sleepily and grabs Deran’s hand, tugging him upstairs. They step into their bedroom and Adrian immediately drops onto the bed.
“C’mon, take off your jeans,” Deran laughs, standing over him and grabbing his knees. Adrian yawns and lifts his hips up, allowing Deran to tug the pants off.
“Whatever,” Adrian huffs. “He said he’d give me a chance if I get more… experience.”
Deran hums to say he’s listening.
“But I don’t want my first time to be with some random guy, you know?”
The idea of someone else touching Adrian makes an angry feeling boil in his stomach.
Adrian continues. “I want it to be with someone I like. Or.... or someone I trust.” He slowly looks up, those shy eyes staring at Deran intensely. “Like you.”
Deran’s mouth dries up. His heart beats so fast it leaps into his throat. “Me?”
