Before her mom died, she got Maze a job as a servant so she would have some care. They were very very poor, so there was not much for Maze to bring. She took a small wooden wagon and put the thin mat she slept on in it. She took all 3 of her blankets, washed them, and put them in the wagon, too. The wagon was like a little bed on wheels. Maze had only 1 set of clothing, but she washed it all and dressed in it all. She took 2 sewing needles and a spool of thread to keep her clothes and blankets in good condition. From the cupboard by the stove, Maze took a spoon, fork, and the best knife she could find. She took a dish, a cup, a small cooking pot and a wooden cooking spoon. She packed the bowl, dish and utensils in the pot and hung the pot from the side of the wagon. She took a big bottle and filled it with water and placed it in the corner of the wagon. She gathered all the candles she could find around the house and put them in the pot, too. Then she left.At her job, she worked as a servant. Her wagon was put in a closet and she slept there. Maze planed to run away. She took a length of rope and added it to her wagon. She added a better knife to her supply of things, and she took 2 warm blankets form the linen closet (she was afraid they would notice if she took more). She also stole a large piece of water-proof and wind-proof fabric. When she was 7, she ran away. She found willow branches at creek, and used a hand full of nails she had stolen. She nailed the willow branches to one side of the wagon, then bend them to the other side and nail them. This created half-hoops over the wagon. She stretched the water and wind proof fabric over the hoops and used the nails and sewing supplies to secure it.
Maze traveled far in the beginning, because she didn't want to be taken back to be a servant some more. She knew which plants were O.K. to eat and which ones weren't, from when she lived with her mom.
She had 2 sets of clothes, one from when she lived with her mom (which were much too small for her now) and one from when she worked as a servant that has been given to her when she outgrew her original set of clothes. And now her 2nd set was starting to get to small. She went to a town where there was a small market. She traded her clothes from when she lived with her mom for a new set, that fit her and were a little too big, so she could wear them for a while. She went back to the creek were she was camping and put on her new clothes. She washed the set of clothes she had been wearing and the next day, when the clothes had dried, she traded them, too. And this is how she clothes herself; by traded her clothes whenever they become to small for her. And she washed them well and uses her sewing things to fix them whenever they get holes or rips, so they she is always able to get a good trade for them.
When she was 8, almost 9, she was passing a small farm when it started to storm really hard. Maze knocked on the door and asked if she could stay in the barn that night. The people agreed. That night, their donkey gave birth to twins. One was week and the mother rejected it. They offered her the week twin, and she took it. For the next week, she stayed on the farm, nursing the donkey to health. They left when the foal was about a month old, because there was no real reason to stay longer. The mom would'nt let the foal nurse anyways. Maze named her foal Amaya. At the farm they gave her a halter, blanket, and bucket for Amaya.
