"Great job, Ray! You're awesome!" Sophie had said to him, with two thumbs up and a grin.
"Thanks," Ray replied shyly, keeping up his pace.
Sophie's pretty nice but... If only I could be awesome for real. Instead, I'm jumping sideways like a baffoon. And I'm sweating... And I'm tired... We gotta get outta here soon... like now
As they reached their first turn, he hoped Nina would take it and that she hadn't forgot which way to go. Last thing he wanted to do was to question her, as he figured she liked being in control. Plus, he wasn't too sure of himself anyways to cause any kind of confrontation so he hoped Sophia would correct her if she did mess up. Fortunately, Nina had known where she was going and took the correct turn. They was closer to the exit, and Ray sighed in relief as he was more than just ready to get out of this maze.
Thank God, we're about to get out of here. BUT WHY IS SHE RUNNING NOW?! Either she wants to get out of this maze a lot more than Sophie and I do, or she's trying to give me some sort of heart attack and work me to death. Either ways, I guess I'd be out the maze.
Ray dropped his arm, and ran following behind Sophie and Nina. If Nina had gotten them lost again, they would all be in trouble as Sophie's plan was no longer in effect. Taking the final turn, Ray glanced foward and noticed a large sign in front of them.
The damn exit!!!
As they approached the sign, he slowed down, trying to catch his breath. He was not in the right shape for all this running, and placed his hands on his knees breathing heavily.
"Yes! You guys, we did it!" Nina had said looking back towards them.
"That's great," Ray said exhausted.
No, that's really great. Now that this little adventure is over, I need to sit down before I pass out. How Sophie and Nina aren't showing any exhaustion right now proves one or two things. Either they are both pretty super powerful creatures from another planet or most likely I'm just that weak and pathetic. I'm gonna go with the latter.
Ray found a spot near the exit, at a close corner to a wall and sat down. He closed his eyes for a second, and placed his head back until he felt good again.
