4. Chapter Toby

Let's fast forward to the night Eric injected the faction with that mind control serum.

Eric took out the serum and injected me as usual, that is until Eric started to, for a lac of better word, analyze me.

"I haven't noticed till now but you look a lot like Macy. She's dead." All I could do was stare at him, I finally figured out where I've seen him before, he was there to take my mother to her execution. She was a divergent and for some reason that meant she must die.

"Come with me," he said taking my knife and pulling me through a metal door. Toby was following us, probably curious about who Marcy was and why she's dead.

"Do not follow me Four…" started Eric.

"Who is Marcy and why is she dead?" Asked Toby.

"Marcy was a divergent Four, you know what happens to them, you've seen it. Iris is her daughter." Toby looked at me, scared because he knew what was going to happen to me. I just felt betrayed, he realized I was divergent when we broke up and now that I know he had seen at least one of their executions, it killed me.

"Leave her alone," said Toby, "she's not a divergent, we've talked about her aptitude test. She picked up the knife and killed the damn dog just like everybody else here." I could tell be was getting scared but using his anger towards Eric to mask it.

Eric looked at me, "what did the voice say?"

Obviously I didn't know what it was supposed to say, "I ate the cheese before it could tell me to choose one, it said that I was supposed to pick."

Eric let me go and gave me back my knife. Fast forward to the simulation attack. I saw Tris shoot Eric and then she and Toby ran away, he never told me he was divergent. Eric turned around and saw me looking straight at him.

"I knew it," he said. Toby saw this but he knew he had to keep running. I was alone. Eric walked towards me and put his knife up against my throat. I slammed my foot on his, right where Tris had shot him, I took my gun in one hand and grabbed his knife with the other. Eric was screaming and a couple other dauntless were coming towards us. I shot one right in the head and he dropped dead, it was Andy, I helped him out during initiation the year after me. I ran as fast as I could shooting at those who tried to stop me.

I ran into a grey building, I went up the stairs and climbed out one of the side windows. I looked at the roof and pulled my self up with the drain pipes. I hate pull ups. The pipe creeped but I made it up. I could hear the dauntless guards in the stairs, I kicked the drain hard hoping it would break while they tried to follow me. I saw the fence and ran towards it, hopping from roof to roof. I saw Toby in a different window and said bye to him, I knew this was probably the last time I would see him.
