Tobias shuts the door, and I break down. What am I gonna do?!?

It's been about 10 minutes, and I finally calm down a bit.

I go into the bathroom, and wash my face. I shiver, remembering that I was...taken here.

Shake it off, Tris. Shake it off. I think to myself. You are better than this.

I'm still uncomfortable on my own. I decide to call Christina and make up with her.


C: Hello?

T: Chris?

C: Yeah?

T: I'm so, so sorry! I feel terrible!

C: Tris, I understand... Kind of. But, you have to understand that that was pretty scary for me too. Seeing you that way hurt me.

T: Oh, Christina. I didn't mean to. I'm sorry.

C: Tris, it's fine! Really!

T: Thanks. Umm... Can you come back over?

C: Of course! Be there in a few!


5 minutes later, there's a knock on the door.

"Who is it?" I call.


I open the door, and attack Chris with a hug.

"I'm sorry." I whisper.

She hugs me back.

"Tris, that's like, the 3rd time you've said that! It's ok!" She assures me.

I let go of her.

"Wanna watch a movie?" I ask.

"Yeah!" She answers, excitedly.

"I have some old movies that are pretty cool." I say.

"Oh yeah? What are they?" She asks, curiously.

"The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay Part 1 and 2."

"Ooo! I've seen The Hunger Games, and Catching Fire. I've never seen Mockingjay!"

"Ok, let's watch that." I say.

After finishing Mockingjay, Christina is in tears.

"OMG that was cutest ending EVER!" She exclaims.

I hear a knock on the door.

"Christina, can you get that?" I ask, picking up our popcorn bowls.

"Yeah." She sniffles.

I put them in the sink, and feels strong arms snake around my waste. I tense, worried its someone like Marcus again.

"Hey Tris, you ok?" Tobias says. I relax. It's just Tobias.

I turn around and hug him.

"I'm fine. Chris and I watched a movie, so it took my mind off of things. I missed you."

"That's good. I missed you too." He says.

"I don't think I want to stay here alone for a while though." I confess.

"That's ok. As long as you feels safe."

I smile. He's so sweet. How did I get so lucky?

"Tris?" I hear Christina call.

I walk into the living room, and see her gathering her things together.

"I'm gonna go hang out with Uriah--"

My 17 year old girl brain kicks in, and I wiggle my eyebrows and say, "Oooooo!"

"Not like that Tris." Christina says, rolling her eyes. She mumbles something under her breath. It sounded like she said "Not yet."

Oh well. I shrug it off.

"Bye Chris!" I say, hugging her. "Thanks for coming back."

"Anytime! See you later!"

She shuts the door, and Tobias says, "Tris, I found out that they are holding a Choosing Ceremony in 2 months."

"Really!" I say excitedly.

"Yeah. I kinda snooped around in the control room. They are asking the 1st and 2nd ranking initiates to train." He explains.

"Yay!" I reply.

"I was thinking you and I could train transfers together. Maybe Zeke and Uriah will train Dauntless borns together."

"That'd be great! Zeke ranked 2nd?" I ask. I have become very perky, very fast considering what happened at lunch. I guess Chris' perkiness is contagious.

"No. But, Eric's dead, so it'll have to be Zeke." He answers.


"Wanna go to dinner tomorrow night?" Tobias asks out of the blue.

"Sure!" I answer excitedly.

Our second date! Awesome!


A/N: So sorry for the REALLY SHORT chapter! I'm kinda having writers block. But, don't worry I'll think of something!



Be brave. <4
