Keeping Dauntless Company

June was named for the intensity and heat she brings, Jaws was named for how he constantly spoke no matter the time, and Mercy was named after her compassion. The three were best friends, until the factions shattered under their feet. With nowhere to go, they ran to the Fringe to find a home. That is, until the secrets, the fear, and the rest of the world started to get to them. How long does it take, before the former dauntless teenagers collapse under the weight of the real world?

The smoke clung to my clothes, and strangled air out of my lungs. I was terrified and blind in a dark atmosphere. "June!" I yelled, "June?! Where are you? I'm scared." My voice wavered, but the words were nearly soundless due to the harsh weightless grey that floated in the air all around me.

I had been born dauntless so, I shouldn't have been so scared, but I was. There was no telling where I stood, or where I was headed. My vision was blurring, and I realized I had stopped trying to breathe anymore. There was no oxygen left.

A short spark of panic jolted through my veins, then disappeared. "June." I moaned, and began to fall, clutching for anything that could keep me upright, keep me on the path towards June.

I found something last second, but when I looked up, I screamed. It was the arm of a man with a viper wrapped around, and around, and around. The last thing I remember, was him picking me up, before I blacked out.
