11. Eleven

A month has past since my breakage. It is my first training session since. I am extremely nervous about it. I have to fight. I am facing Sierra. She'll take it easy... I think.

I crack my knuckles and step into the ring. Sierra and I poise ourselves. I try to strike. Sierra raises her forearm and blocks me. I kick her between the legs. "Caught off guard!" I say to her lying on the floor. She laughs. It was an easy fight.

I have 20 more fights that day. There are 23 Dauntless born initiates and I have already taken on two of them. I give 19 knockout blows, 16 nosebleeds and 13 sprained wrists. I beat everyone. When I step out of the ring after my last fight everyone rushes up to me and claps me on the back. Everyone but Gemma and her cronies, Georgia and Britney. 

I pull myself free from the crowd. Harrison stands alone, arms folded. I smile at him as he comes up to me. He pats my back. "Well done kid!" He says. I know he's  trying not to give away our secret.

I walk down the corridor with my friends. "You gotta be kidding!" Bee-tee cries, "You are totally winning this thing!"

I laugh and shrug. "It's not a competition!" I say. Sierra laughs and claps me on the back. I smile and we go into the dorm. We all sit on our beds. Awkward silence.

"So Dani!" Bee-tee says, "How's Harrison?" I smile and raise my pillow in the air. It smashes into her face. Bee-tee raises her pillow and chucks it. I duck. The pillow flies and hits Marla in the face. Marla swings her pillow round. Smack! Sierra gets hit in the face. We are soon involved in a full on pillow fight. We swing our pillows round and chuck them round the room.  Feathers fly everywhere.

I trip and fall on Harry. He picks me up and I lean on him. The door opens. Every body drops their pillow and freezes where they are. I have my arms round Harry. Harrison enters the room. His eyes drift over us. "What the hell?" His eyes catch me. I smile and wave. He turns round and leaves, slamming the door behind him.

"Oh!" Sierra says. Everyone is still frozen. I take my arms off Harry and leave. I run out the door. I can see Harrison at the end. I run faster to catch up with him. "Harrison!" I call.  He turns round.

"What do you want?"

"It wasn't what you think Harrison!"

"Oh! And what was it then?"

"I fell over! Harry caught me!" 

"Yeah right!"

"Who's side are you on?"

"There are no sides!"

"Well, are you my boyfriend or not. I've already had enough heartbreak for the year, you might as well get it over and done with!"

"Dani, no!"

"No what?"

"Dani, I love you, you know that. I don't know whether I can trust you or not, that's all!"

"You obviously don't love me if you can't trust me!" I turn around and storm off.

"Dani!" I turn round. Harrison comes up to me. "I do love you, I love you so, so much. You are my everything Dani. I will never, ever let you go!" I lean forwards. Our lips touch. I feel the pressure of us connecting. I wrap my arms around him and he does the same to me. I tighten my grip on him. 

"I told you Sierra!" I let go of Harrison and turn around to see Bee-tee and Sierra, looking smug."Care to join us?" Sierra says. I stick out my tongue at her. Harrison's hand rests on my hip. I lay my hand on his and look up at him. We smile and all of us laugh together.

Bee-tee decides to never let go of the fact that Harrison and I are going out. Yes, she's sworn to secrecy, but that doesn't stop her bugging me. "So, Dani Barnaby!" She uses Harrison's last name. "Oh, ha ha ha!" I fake laugh. Bee-tee puts her arm round my shoulders and squeezes. I smile at her.
