Thomas hears the voice again. It says, "Thomas I have faith in you" (63.1).
Somehow, Thomas is able to get himself up. When he gets up, there's still no one in the room.
But hey, he's alive. So that's a plus.
On a table is a manila envelope with Thomas written on the front in big red letters.
The first paper inside is a map of the WICKED complex; the second is a letter from Chancellor Paige.
In the letter, Chancellor Paige describes how the Trials are over. She stopped the procedure, much to some of her associates' dismay, and she will work on a cure from the data she gathered.
Chancellor Paige also placed a back door in an unused maintenance room. She needs Thomas to gather his friends as well as all the immune people he can and escape.
Oh, and there are paths marked on the map: a tunnel that will lead Thomas to the Right Arm, a path that will get him to the Immunes, and route that will get him to the maintenance room. There, a Flat Trans will transport him to what will hopefully be a new life.
Huh, sounds legit.
Remember, Brenda once told Thomas to trust Chancellor Paige. So he is all for it.
Thomas memorizes the paths and looks at the map, and one thing in particular catches his eye: they hid the Immunes in the Maze.
