I wake breathing heavily and fast. My almost six-foot frame contorted- my legs pulled in close, almost to my chest. It is still very early in the morning, I think, but I'm not going back to sleep. Because it is here, in real life, my dream is about to come true, and I'm about to escape my nightmare.
I look at the picture to my side. In Abnegation, we don't get to have pictures, but my mother somehow got a picture of herself. She gave it to me two days before she died. A little before that, she gave me a blue sculpture to hide- something else I'm not really supposed to have. In a few hours, I'll be leaving this room for the last time. Everyone told me I was all my father had left- but he's about to be like me- left with nothing.
I decide to get up and I clean my room up- leaving the blue sculpture out for my father to see once I'm gone. I slip the picture into the back pocket of my gray pants and button up my gray shirt.
When I took my aptitude test, I was told that I was something very dangerous- Divergent. That means that I could belong in more than one faction. For me, I could belong easily in Abnegation or Dauntless.
For me, this choice will be easy. I leave that house quickly, only risking a glance at my father's face before boarding a bus alone. The bumpy ride to where I choose my destiny seems too long.
I feel other Abnegation eyes burning holes into my clothes, like they know- they know - I'm about to betray their faction, and never look back. Keeping my eyes down, I follow another Abnegation girl about to choose her future until I end up in the right place. I squirm in between the others until I am in my alphabetical order.
Eaton is between Durham and Esting.
We go in reverse order, each sixteen-year-old cutting their hand, and dropping their blood on the element that represents their chosen faction. I walk carefully up the aisle and someone presses a knife into my palm. I don't know who. My vision is hazed. I don't even flinch when I let the blade penetrate my skin.
Dark red oozes onto my skin, and I walk directly to the flaming coals. My blood makes a sizzling and dripping sound when it falls. I look at the small clock next to my bed: I usually don't sleep in so late- past breakfast and lunch, but I really don't have much to do until later- when the Dauntless initiates will be coming to the compound for the first time.
I run a hand through my hair, it's not as long as the other guys here in Dauntless, but I've let it grow out a little. I sit up and cold air hits me in the chest. I swing my feet down to the wooden floor, and stretch, the muscles in my back tight from a workout I did yesterday. I walk down the dark corridors of the Dauntless compound toward the members' entrance. The initiates have probably already jumped on and off their first train by now, and will be waiting on the rooftop to see who will be the first to jump off the roof this year.
From the roof, they will only see an opening in the cement below, and will not know about the net I stand by now. I hear a few gasps and know that the first jumper has gone. A girl with blond hair hits the net. She's so small that she barely looks sixteen. She peers back up through the hole she fell through and begins to laugh uncontrollably. She laughs so hard, I almost join her. Along with a few of the others, I reach a hand out toward her shaking body.
She grabs my hand, curling delicate little fingers around me. She struggles across the net, and almost rolls right into the floor.
I catch her and notice her gray clothes. I release her arms once she gets her feet under her. She looks at the girl, "A Stiff, the first to jump? Unheard of. It seems like a nickname or something, but I don't ask. A crowd of Dauntless behind us whoops, but does not drown out the sound of a dropping, screaming initiate. The crowd's noise morphs into a laugh, then back to rucketous yelling.
I put a hand on the Abnegation girl's back, which stiffens.
Overwhelmingly underwhelming. And that is as about as positive as I can get. It felt more like the author was frantically filling in plot holes rather than writing something new.
The Transfer - Was this one reallllly necessary???
From the main books, we already know that Four picked Dauntless because he wanted to escape his abusive father. And this short story I suppose, it was just a really, really drawn out version Felt like a waste of page space.
The Ini Overwhelmingly underwhelming. The Initiate - This was a bit interesting. We see some of the main players from Divergent mainly Eric and the Dauntless-born initiates as Four comes to terms with his new life. But honestly, it feels like we already lived through this. Divergent - A Stiff enters dauntless, gets ridiculed but manages to come out on top.
The Initiate - A Stiff enters dauntless BUT he's like, super nervous and stuff, gets ridiculed and manages to come out on top. And we see how he gets his tat. That bit bugged the ever-living daylights out of me.
