The glass windows of the Labyrinth still showed nothing but darkness. They walked down a straight path with no end in sight.
"Why are there windows here? Shouldn't the walls be the same?"
Maria stared out into the darkness behind the window.
"The Labyrinth is able to change and move as it pleases.. As we've already seen in the puzzles.."
Lavender answered her question.
"So you're telling me that this Labyrinth is alive in a way? That's creepy.."
"It's true, it could be thought of in that way. But it's probably just complicated mechanisms controlling everything."
Percy rolled his eyes.
"What else could it be then?"
"Who knows? There's a lot of things in this world we may not know about."
They then came to two squares on the floor, both next to each other. There were several numbers on each square. The numbers on square one were: 2,5,9, and the numbers on square two were: 4,1,7. They looked at the squares.
"2,5,9,4,1,7... How do they all go together?"
"There doesn't seem to be any hints this time.."
"What about putting them in order?"
Maria tried to move one of the numbers, but it didn't work.
"They don't seem to move."
Jaden looked around to find a locked door and a keypad ahead. He walked over to it, and Lavender and Maria followed. Percy stayed near the squares to try and figure it out himself, but he was the only one who was near the squares and actually had the numbers in front of him.
"Let's try to work it out first because we only have one chance to get it right."
"What are the numbers again?"
Maria looked back at Percy.
"The numbers are 2,5,9,4,1,7."
He read the numbers, annoyed at how she could forget so easily.
They thought and thought, and finally settled on putting even numbers in first, and then odd. Maria put in the even numbers: 2 and 4, and Lavender put in the odd: 5,9,1,7. The door opened, so they thought they got it right. Maria walked through the door first, followed by Lavender, Jaden, and Percy. However, when they walked through the door, the floor came out from under them, and they fell through darkness.
