Lavender walked alongside Jaden, looking at the floor.
"So, earlier, I didn't get your name. What is it?"
She looked up at him, and after a few minutes, she finally speaks.
"Lavender? That's a pretty name."
She gave a small smile to him. He returned a smile, showing a bit of a fang. She was a little surprised to see it, but she pretended to not have noticed. They came to a stop, with two paths in front of them. A voice was heard coming from the right hallway,
"Who is that..? I thought there weren't any other people here.."
A girl finally emerged from the hallway, with dark blue hair in pigtails, and brown eyes.
She smiled and walked over to them.
"I'm Maria, what are your names?"
"I'm Jaden, and this is Lavender."
Lavender waves, and Maria waves back. Maria starts to walk down the left hallway.
"Come on, let's go!"
Jaden and Lavender catch up to her, and they keep walking down the hallway, until they encounter a wall with three lightbulbs, each with a switch to turn them on.
"What are we supposed to do here..?"
Jaden thought on what to do. Maria went up to the lightbulbs and checked them out. She wondered if they would turn on if she pushed the switch.
"I think we're supposed to turn them on in a certain sequence. There should be a hint if we look around, since there was a hint before."
He looked around for any hints, as did Lavender and Maria. However, when Maria was looking, she saw the hint above the lightbulbs, so she tried to read it. She stretched up to read it, but she realized too late she'd already pressed the switch of the lightbulb in the middle. She stretched down and saw the lit lightbulb.
"Oh no.. I pushed the switch.."
"There's a hint over here, but I can't read it, and I accidentally hit one of the switches.."
She called out to them, and they looked over.
He looked up at the hint, and it had 3 pictures in a row. The first one was lit, the middle one wasn't, and the last one was lit.
"Well, maybe we can just push the switch again and it'll turn off."
Lavender had looked as well, and went to push the switch again. It did turn off. She pushed the first one to turn it on, and Jaden pushed the last one. The wall started to turn to reveal a last lightbulb.
"How come there's another one..?"
"If we follow the pattern, it should not be lit.."
After a few minutes, nothing happened.
"Should we try another pattern?"
Maria pushed the switches in a different order, and this time, the wall started to turn.
"I think I figured it out!"
However, the whole Labyrinth began to shake. They were all surprised, and wondered what was going on. After a while, it stopped shaking, and revealed something new in front of them.
"What just happened?"
Jaden looked down at the tiles in front of them. They were each differently colored, and had a different symbol. They did not move around. He wondered what they had to do this time. Behind them, someone was coming. They all turned around to see a boy with black hair, and blue-gray eyes.
"I see there are more people than I thought."
Maria smiled and went up to him.
"Hi, I'm Maria, and this is Jaden and Lavender."
He responded with a cold tone.
"What's your name?"
He was starting to get a bit annoyed with Maria.
"We're trying to solve a puzzle, do you want to come help us?"
"Who do you think you are? And why would I work with others, especially you all?"
Maria went silent, she did not like people being rude at all, especially to her.
"Hey, you don't have to be so rude to her, or anyone."
Jaden spoke up to Percy.
"I'd rather work alone, so don't get in my way."
