Call my name
Maybe if I hear it I’ll remember
'Cause I've forgotten my past
I am only a mask, just a pretender
And you know you’re not there
When the wind in your hair goes right through you
And you know that you’re gone
When the sound of a song cannot soothe you
And it’s a difficult burden to bear
When you’re not quite there
I feel this blurb sums up the Thomas x Teresa relationship in The Scorch Trials.
Newt (Talking with Thomas after the Berg dropped him off)
Frypan (When the Gladers rescue Brenda and Thomas from the Crank party)
"You saw what he did to you," Thomas countered. "You know the guts that took. If you kill him, you lose the skills he brings. He’s our best fighter, and he’s not scared of anything. Maybe he’s crazy, but we need him."
Thomas was trying to sound so practical. Pragmatic. But if there was a person other than Teresa on the planet he could truly call a friend, it was Minho. And he couldn’t handle losing him, too.
