Chapter 21
Tobias' POV:

I walk into the apartment after a really long day at work. It was so boring.

Tris normally gets home half an hour after I do, so I sit on the couch and accidentally space out.

Before I know it, I hear the front door close, and Tris stands in front of me.

"Tobias?" She waves her hand in front of my face.

"Hmm?" I come back into focus.

"Are you ok?"

"Oh, yeah, I just spaced out for a little while."

"Oh," she laughs.

"How was work?" I ask.

"Good. They're training me to work in the NICU and help with c sections."

"That's good," I say.

We sit in a comfortable silence for a few minutes and then Tris says, "Tobias?"

"Yeah Tris?"

"I have a problem."

"What is it?" I'm curious now.

"Well, I was getting trained in the NICU by a guy named Ryan, and I started getting emotional, so he hugged me--"

"He HUGGED you?!?" My eyebrows pull together and my face turns red with anger. "The only guys other than me that are allowed to hug you are Zeke and Uriah! And not a long hug either!"

"I know Tobias, I pushed him away, I promise."

"Was it a side hug or a full on frontal hug," I ask, still mad.

"I don't think you want to know."

"The second one?"

She nods.

I groan in frustration and anger.

"Tobias you need to calm down," she says putting a hand on my arm.

"I can't calm down Tris! We don't even know this guy!"

I stand up and she does the same.

She sighs, and wraps her arms around me.

"See? I'm the only one that's allowed to do this," I say as my arms find their way around her waist. "Do you think he has feelings for you?"

"I-I don't know."

I break away from the hug, and our hands connect.

"Tris you need to tell me if anything happens. Tell me everything."

"I will."

"If anything else like this happens again, I'm going to talk to him," I tell her. "I love you."

"And I love you. Only you."

<><><>

The next day I'm very anxious to hear from Tris. Has anything else happened?

I told her this morning that if he makes her uncomfortable in any way, she needs to come straight to me.

As I'm watching the hallways through the computer screen, there's a knock on the door.

"Come in!" I yell.

My boss walks in and tells me it's time for my lunch break.

I walk to the cafeteria and sit down with a sandwich. Uriah's there too.

"What's wrong dude?" He asks.

"Huh?"

"You look mad."
