Maze Wolf: The Beginning Read on, and help Maze find her way to the second book, if you don’t, something bad will happen, and I don’t know what, but please, read on… She ran. Ran and Ran and Ran, that was all she could do. Fire was spreading, everyone except her and her pet Wolf was dead. Bombs were still flying down, Fire was still burning, she and Wolfy were still running, all she had were her doll, Food, Clothes, Wolfy, a bow, knives, and herself. She kept running and remembered what her parents told her: Find the wooden cottage, and you will learn how to fight and protect, once you do, you will be sent to the city, and live on your own. Then a bomb hit the house just as she ran out of the village. But she didn't stop, she ran crying, and still is… As soon as she reached the cottage she was weak, covered in scars, breathless, she knocked on the door and a man opened it. "Maze, you’re here!" “Who are you?" "WOOF!" "Uncle Archer." "Ok, your my Uncle... what else?" "Just come in." "Fine." As soon as she walks in, for 3 years and 6 months, she learns Martial arts of all types. Before she leaves... "Maze, before you leave... I want to tell you about Puzzle. Your Imaginary brother." "Puzzle? Imaginary brother? What does that mean?" "Your mom was pregnant before the bombs came. They knew his name, and word got out that he would be one of the strongest men in the world, and you would be one of the strongest ladies. The people who bombed your village... they were after you and your brother. They got Puzzle but... He still exists." "What?! How?!" "If you can summon him three times, he will come and stay, he has been summoned once, and you need three different completed puzzles burned in a fire to summon him. You summoned him without the puzzles somehow, buts that's the easiest way. Now, you need to go, goodbye Maze, I will visit." "Ok... Thank you Uncle Archer. I will bring my brother. Goodbye." She says, walking out the door. "Yes... I know you will." She and Wolfy run to the city and look around for a small cottage next to a thing they call school. "Your new huh?" Someone says. "EEP!" She uses a Aikido kick. "OW!" She looks at the person she kicked, and it's a boy about her age. "Oh my gosh! I am so sorry!! I've never been in the city before!" "Oh... so your the girl my family is taking in..." He says, getting up. "What? .... Oh! Uncle Archer told me someone was taking me in! I completely ignored that!" "Your lost, School for you starts tomorrow I guess." The next thing Maze knows, she's following the boy to her new home. "Um... What's your name?" She asks, walking on the wall next to him. "Keito, and can you please get off the wall you are scaring me doing that." "No. Unless you buy me a choco taco." She points at a Ice cream stand. “No." "Then I'm not getting off the wall." "Fine, oh, we're here." They stand in front of a nice wooden cottage." "Okay." They walk inside. “Welcome home Keito, oh! It’s you! Hello, you can call me Ms. K, or Katherine.” Says Keito’s mom. “H-hi…” She has never interacted with a mom besides her own. “You start school tomorrow, you can have the room at the end of the hall, Kassie! Meto! Maze is here!” Maze hears fast steps from the hall, and then two 5 year olds jump out of nowhere. “Maze!” They run into her, making her fall backwards into Keito, making Keito fall forwards nearly on top of Maze’s face, but Ms. K grabs Keito’s shirt so he’s just dangling above Maze. The two kids pull out phones and take a picture of them while Maze is laying there and Keito right above her, them both tomatoes. Ms. K pulls Keito up and Maze gets up. “KASSIE!! METO!!” He yells, running after them. “Sorry about that, it’s just, they love shipping people and well, it’s kinda fun doing that. Oh! I forgot to give you your uniform!” She runs to the room at the end of the hall and back. “Here.” She hands Maze a blue and white uniform. “I thought about what Mr. Archer described about you, and took a test online, and it said your colors would be blue and white. Now go put it on.” She says, pointing to her room. Maze walks to her room and puts on the uniform, it comes with a mixed color headband, a mix of blue, white, black, so she puts that on as well. She walks out to see that Keito and his siblings are going to sit and take a look too. She goes back in and puts her hair in twin-tails (Pigtails.) she also find a strange watch, and she puts that on too, then she walks out. “Does it look good?” She asks as she walks into the living room. Ms. K, Kassie, and Meto give a thumbs up, then look at Keito. He’s stunned at how different she looks from the girl how kicked him in the leg. “You look amazing!” Suddenly, Maze remembers something from when she was little. “Maze, you are amazing, that’s what your name stands for…” That was what Maze’s mom said. A tear drops and she says thank you, then she goes back to her room. Wolfy awaits her outside the door and whimpers. Maze pets him, then goes inside her room. She changes and sits on the bed, pulling her possessions out of her backpack, she puts her weapons against the wall, and put her clothes in the drawer. She wipes away the tear and grabs her doll, Ticky, and goes to the living room. “Umm, can you show me around the house?” She asks, gripping Ticky tightly. “Sure. Follow me.” Says Ms. K. “This is the kitchen, this is Kassie, Meto, and Keito’s room, this is mine, and the bathrooms, there are two, are right across from your room, and the kitchen.” “Okay, thank you.” Maze says. “... Was Keito sad?” “What do you mean?” “I started crying after he said I looked amazing, did he notice?” “Yes, but I told him it was because of your past, and he felt better.” “Thank you.” “Oh, it’s time for dinner, what would you like?” “You don’t know it so i’ll make it.” Maze walked into the kitchen and closed the door. 35 minutes later… “Done! Come sit at the table!” They all sat at the table as she set down the food, and it looked delicious. “It’s a mix between a taco and pasta, it’s a taco with pasta and taco meat inside. I call it paco.” They tried it and they all loved it. “Teach me! Please!” Said Ms. K. “Later, isn’t it time to get ready for bed?” “Oh, you’re correct, you and Keito can go shower first.” “In the same one?!” “No, we have two, remember?” “Ah, sorry, forgot.” “Oh, we were going to change the rooms around so you and Keito could share a room, and Kassie and Meto share one, is that okay?” “... yes.” Keito looked stunned, but quickly changed his look. “Woof!” “I need to feed Wolfy first, wanna come?” Maze asked Keito. “? Sure.” Keito replied. “Ok, can you take me to the park?” “Sure.” Maze followed keito to the park with two slabs of meat in her bag. “We’re here.” Keito said when they got to the park. “Okay, watch.” She pulled out the meat and Wolfy went to her. “Sit.” Wolfy sat. “Backflip.” Wolfy did a backflip. “Fetch!” She threw the meat and Wolfy caught it and ate it. Keito did the same and then they walked back.
