The Kill Order Chapter 26

By James Dashner

Chapter 26

  • So you can say that strange things are certainly happening; even the guys who are holding Mark's and Alec's ropes seem confused.
  • Alec, noticing the confusion, springs into action and unties the rope. Mark does the same.
  • The woman who had first captured them then starts holding her head, and then she stumbles backwards. Looks like she's about to get the Jed-treatment.
  • Alec grabs a piece of wood that's half in the fire, ready to use it as a weapon.
  • Now people are charging Mark and Alec; two people even run straight into the bonfire.
  • But it seems like they really don't care. They just rush off into the forest, sure to light the whole place on fire.
  • The woman who had initially captured them yells for them to take her with them—pshh, fat chance.
  • Plus, at this point everyone's in a huge brawl and people are getting punched and tackled from all over the place.
  • After a huge battle royale where Mark gets beaten pretty badly, Mark and Alec escape into the forest.
  • But the forest doesn't look so good. In fact, the part between them and where they left Trina, Lana, and Deedee is engulfed in flames.
