Candice POV

We were all gathered at dinner as usual, I sat between Four and Kev we were all talking about tonight's festivities.

"So, you actually meant it when you said we are not allowed to hang with you tonight?" Kev asked with some sort of sad look in his face.

"That's right; it is just going to be us girls, me, Candice, Meg, Shauna, Raven, Theresa and Tori."

"But, but?"

"Ah don't be such a pussy, you'll have fun without us."

"But will you still dance with us or is that too out of the question?"

"Sure, dancing is fine but nothing else."

"You're mean sissy."

"Hey! I said you could dance with us."

"Yeah but still."

"I shouldn't be questioning her if I were you, or you might not even be able to dance with us at all." I said. Kev went silent.

"Hey, have you had Dauntless cake before?" Four asked me.

"No I haven't."

"Wait, hold up. You're saying you have after almost one month never had Dauntless cake?" Four asked shocked.

"Yeeaaah." I slowly say, looking at him with a questioning look.

"That's ridiculous here you have to try this." Four take some cake on his fork and feed me it. Saying that this cake was good would be a big understatement, It was freaking delicious, absolutely delightful. Everyone must have sensed that like it because they were all smiling.

"Liked it huh?" Four asked.

"Like tasting heaven." At that everyone laughed. I tried to take another bite but Four took away the plate and looked at me like I was mental.


"I didn't say you could eat my cake, get your own cake this is my cake."

"Okay." I said raising my hands in a defeating manner. I stood up and left to get my own Dauntless cake, remind me of never trying to take Fours cake again.

After dinner we went back to the dormitory for a while to rest and talk.

"So you recon Kev would like to dance tonight?" Meg asked.

"Of course he will. We are going to find something hot for you to wear; he will not be able to keep his eyes of you."

"You realize it's your brother you're talking about." I said.

"Yeah I know gross. But I like the idea of them together so I will help; besides he needs a woman besides me who can bring him down to earth, he keeps forgetting that he is not the only one in this world." We all laughed and decided to leave for the pit before it would be too late.

"So Candice, I know you and Four are just friends but you spend an awful lot of time with him what's the story?" Levina asked me.

"It's a long story, we just know each other from before that's all."

"Like how I mean, everyone knows that you were like an outcast sorry about that and no one really knows Four's story."

"No worries, it's kind of complicated, I don't really like to talk about my personal life ok?"
