2. Chapter 2

I opened my eyes and saw some cheese and a knife on the table in front of me. I picked then both up, cut the cheese, threw the knife on the floor, and ate.

"You were supposed to choose one," said a voice.

"Oops, sowy," I said with a full mouth. I looked up and saw a huge dog standing in front of me. I sat down and put my hands in front of me so I could pet it, cause you know, dogs, pet em right? And surprise surprise the dog licked the rest of the cheese off my hands and let me per him. Then a girl showed up and the dog was gonna attack her and I didn't know what to do. I sat on the dog. I know what you're thinking, 'why would you sit on the dog?' Well I don't know I thought sitting on it would slow it down, which it did. Now you're probably wondering what happened to the girl. Well I don't know, I woke up.

"Well that was interesting," said Tori, "you have an aptitude for…"

"For what? At least give me some suspense," I said sarcastically.

"You're a divergent," she sighed.

"A detergent?"


"Which is what exactly?"

"It means you have an aptitude for more than one faction. You can choose erudite or dauntless. But being a divergent is dangerous, no one can know. They killed my brother because of it. I don't know why but they did. I will mark you down as Erudite, make your choice and choose what you want tomorrow."

"Dauntless," I said, processing.


"I choose dauntless," I said while getting up, "I'll see you at initiation I guess." I have her a smile and walked out. Okay Iris, you got this. I walked up to Aaron and sat down.

"So?" He asked. Shit, I didn't think about how choosing dauntless would limit my time with Aaron.

"I got Dauntless," I whispered.

"Well then we have a lot to do together before tomorrow cause you must be an idiot if you think I'm not spending time with my little sister."

He gave me a hug and we walked back home. We spent the night playing board games and having fun, mom and dad were sad but I told them that I'd do what I could to stay I touch with them.
