Suddenly a girl drops down into the net and sits there for a moment, then starts laughing. We all reach our hands out to her, and she takes mine. I look at her and my breath catches. She’s wearing gray. She is Abnegation.
“Thank you,” she says to me.
I look at Lauren and surprise is painted on her face. She quickly hides it with a smirk and says, “Can’t believe it. A Stiff, the first to jump? Unheard of.”
“There’s a reason why she left them, Lauren,” I counter back. I looked at the girl again and studied her. She was small, with a narrow face, a thin, long nose, and blond hair and wide, blue eyes. Nothing special, but she was the first to jump, and that was special to me. “What’s your name?” I asked.
“Um…” She hesitates. I know why. Some Abnegation names just do not fit the Dauntless description.
“Think about it,” I say, with trace of a smile on my face. “You don’t get to pick again.”
“Tris,” she says firmly. I’m surprised. It didn’t take her as long as it took me.
“Tris,” Lauren repeats, a grin on her face. She looks at me. “Make the announcement, Four.”
I look over my shoulder and shout, “First jumper--Tris!” Everyone starts cheering and fist pumping, but then another girl drops down into the net, screaming. She’s from Candor, I realize immediately as I look at her black and white clothing. I study her quickly as everyone laughs and cheers. Dark skin, brown eyes, and short, brown hair. Pretty, I guess. But I am not thinking about her.
I place my hand firmly on the Tris’s back and say, “Welcome to Dauntless.”
