Chapter 19

Tris' POV:

It's been a couple months since his 'death day', and things are getting back to normal. We still have our moments, but this time it isn't a lasting thing, like when he first passed.

"Hey," Tobias starts. "Do you want to go out for dinner tonight?"

I smile.

"Sure, what's the occasion?"

"Look at the calendar."

'February 14'.

"Valentine's Day right?" I ask. I first heard about this holiday 4 years ago because in Abnegation we didn't celebrate it. I always have to ask if I'm correct on the date.

He nods, "Happy Valentine's Day Tris!"

"Happy Valentine's Day Tobias," I hug him, then pull away. "I love you."

"I love you too," he abruptly leaves to go to the kitchen, leaving me puzzled. "Here,"

He hands me a bunch of red roses.

"Thank you," I kiss him passionately. "You're the best."

"I know," he smirks.

I playfully smack his chest, smiling.

"Let's go get some breakfast," I say, putting my flowers in a glass vase.

Our hands intertwine and we head for the cafeteria.

"Hi!" Kenna yells when we enter. Their family is sitting at the table already.

"Hey Kenna," we respond.

"Hey, Tris! Got anything planned for tonight? It's Valentine's Day," Chris asks.

"Yeah, Four and I are going out to dinner," I say, eating a waffle.

"Shopping!" She yells.

"No! Please don't make me Chris, I'm begging you--"

"You don't have a choice!" She interrupts.

I sigh in defeat. I know there's no point in arguing if I'm going to lose anyway.


"What kind of restaurant are you going to?" Christina asks while we walk to the Pit. The guys are watching Jax and Kenna.

"Somewhere fancy."

"Like, dress code fancy?" She questions.

"Dress code?"

"Yeah, you know, you can't go in there in a t-shirt and jeans, 'cause they'll kick you out. That kind of dress code," She clarifies.

I shrug, "Yeah, I guess."

We enter a shop full of dresses. Only dresses. I hate it already.

Sighing heavily, I get dragged into the abyss.


Christina finishes curling my hair and I'm ready to go.

I picked out a nice, deep purple dress. It is fitted and has a high-ish neckline, and cap sleeves. Even though I'm not in Abnegation anymore, I still like to be modest.

"Thanks Christina," I hug her.

"No problem. Have fun!"

I walk out the door, to our apartment. I got ready at Chris and Uri's.

I knock on the door and Tobias opens it within seconds. His jaw drops.

"Y-You look beautiful," he stutters.

I blush, "And you look very handsome."

He smiles, and takes my hand.

"Let's go."


I sip on my water when he asks the question.

"Tris do you ever want to try for another child?"

I choke and start to cough.


"Don't you want a kid? Losing Trace makes me want one even more."

"Please Tobias don't say his name," my eyes fill with tears.

"We need to say his name Tris. He deserves to be called by the beautiful name you picked out for him."

I put my head in my hands.

"I'll try," I manage to squeak out.

After composing myself I look up. Tobias isn't there.

"Tris?" A deep voice says beside me.

I jump slightly and see Tobias on his knees next to my chair.

"Are you ok?"

"Yeah, I think so," I breath.

He takes my chin and pulls his lips to mine.

"I love you," I tell him sincerely.

"I love you too."

A/N: Yeah it's short, I know. And it's also past Valentines Day. Whatever.

I'm so so so so so so so so so sorry it took me this long to update! Omg you don't even know how terrible I feel about it. 😁

QOTD: Have you ever seen the musical "Wicked"?

AOTD: Yes! It's my favorite! I'm seeing it again tomorrow!


Be brave. <4
