    I look up at him.
      
      "I don't want to kill anyone either.  Trust me.  But I'd do it if it would make you feel better."
      He pulls me to a stop near the railing of the chasm.  The Pit's glass ceiling is letting through rays of dusk, with mesmerizing rays of oranges and pinks lighting up the otherwise blackened stone.  I can't focus on anything else though; Peter's eyes are too intense.  They're like green lasers burning into my cerulean sea irises, like the sun reaching through a lens to start a fire.  
      "Jax."
      
      I tear my eyes away.
      "Four told me you heard," I blurt out.  "What I said in my fear landscape."
      
      "I did," Peter confirms.  I squeeze my eyes shut and wait for the storm to pass.  
      "Why do you seem so scared?  Do I scare you, Jax?"
      
      "No," I breathe.

Wow. That is really heartfelt - very descriptive and just plain wonderful. A perfect intro. Nice!

I almost didn't take the time to read this story because of the long paragraphs and I'm really picky on the stories I read based on grammar and writing style but to be honest this is already really really good like damn

'Ansel' always reminds me of Ansel Elgort so whenever I see this name I think of him, which leads to me thinking of Caleb Prior, which just trips me out 😂
