With a sigh I look at the sculpture inside of the compound. Christina said she needed some time alone so I guess I can just admire the sculpture. For the first time in a while, my thoughts drift off to Marlene. I have peace with it now. Not that I’m not sad about it anymore, but I just don’t cry myself to sleep every night anymore. She wouldn’t have want me to do that. I turn around, just about to walk away when I spot Tris. I smile and wave. Behind me I hear this extremely loud noise and I try to turn around to see what it is, but I’m too late. I feel like I explode…
Everything turns black.
I try to open my eyes, but I can’t. The only thing I see is black. Black everywhere. I can’t see, move, talk. I want to scream for help, but I know I can’t. And no one is going to help me. But I can still think. I think about my life.
Zeke and I who chased each other at school. Laughing when we got home. My mother who grieved about my father. Her sad smile every time we got home.
The moment I met Lynn and Marlene, when we ended up in the same class. Marlene’s pure smile. God how much I miss her smile… It kills me inside. Although I know that is not the only thing that is killing me right now. The only thing I can think of after that is our first kiss. I try to enjoy the feeling while I’m slowly carried to my death. It’s hard to let go, somehow I want to fight it. I don’t want to die. But there’s no point in fighting it, and I know that. I try to breathe but I can’t anymore. I slowly feel myself slipping away.
