Divergent's Daughter [completed]

Hey, My name is Dani Eaton. I am an outsider...
That means I don't belong.
What do you do when you are the daughter of the two most famous Divergent? Danielle has a lot to live up to and a lot to hide...
She has the added issues of death and family riding on her shoulders.


15. Fifteen

I stand alone in the corridor. I rest my head against the stone wall. I hear the click of heels and look up. Sierra is coming toward me. I smile at her. She puts her arms around me and hugs me. She stays there for a while and then lets go. "How did you.. you know become..?"

"How d'ya think."

"When was the last time you and Harrison..."

"My birthday."

"Dani, that was like two months ago!"

"Yeah, and I only found out two days ago."

"Oh Dani! You. This just isn't you!"

"Well it is now!"

Sierra hugs me again and I hug her to. I start to cry into her shoulder.


Two weeks later you can tell, and everyone knows. I hide my face quite often to get away from the wolf whistles and dirty looks. 

One night I lay in my bed, wide awake. I hear movement in the dormitory. I sit up to see what's going on. A strong arm wraps around my neck and a hand clasps my mouth. I try to scream but the hand grips my cheeks so I can't make any noise. I am lifted up and dragged away from the bed.

I am dragged along the floor for a while. I keep my eyes shut. I don't want to know where I am. The dragging stops. I slowly open up my eyes. I see Gemma's face looming over me. She wears a vicious smile. Gemma laughs as she walks over to my stomach. Her foot gradually presses down on the lump where my baby lies. 

"Ah!" I scream with the pain, "Get off me!"

Gemma laughs and keeps her foot pressing harder and harder. "Stop Gemma!" The pressure of Gemma's foot lessens. Sierra and Bee-tee stand there. "You're gonna stop me?" Gemma laughs. Bee-tee charges forward and smacks her fist into Gemma's cheek. Sierra runs forward and puts her hand behind my head. "You OK?" I nod and push myself up into sitting. I support myself with my arms and Sierra lets go of me. She stands up and joins Bee-tee who is making pretty neat work of Gemma and her pretty little face. 

"What's going on?" Harrison stands in the entrance. He runs up to me and helps me up. I lean into his body. "Bee-tee, Sierra!" He yells. The girls stop beating up Gemma and turn round. A look of embarrassment crosses their faces. Bee-tee waves and smiles. Like thats gonna help! "What the hell!" Harrison yells. Bee-tee and Sierra hang their heads. "Harrison, Gemma attacked me  she tried to, I don't know..." I say "The girls saved me!"

"Just this time I'll let you off." Harrison pulls me into him, "You two get Clese to help take Gemma away!" Harrison drags me away to his room. He sits me down on the bed. "Are you OK?" He asks. I nod and lean backward. I feel my head hit the pillow behind me and swing my legs up onto the bed.I feel Harrison's fingers run through my hair and smile. I open my eyes. Harrison lies down next to me. I lace my fingers with his. "What's your deepest secret Harrison?" I ask.

"My deepest secret is that... I... I am Divergent." 

"You think I didn't notice!"

"Well... I am pretty awesome."

"Shut it!"
We laugh. I lean over and our lips touch. We stay there. Epiphany. "What's your deepest secret, Dani?" Harrison asks, running his fingers through my hair.

"My deepest secret is..." I know exactly what I would say, want to say its just I can't say. Can I trust Harrison? Of course I can. But then again, Clese. I have known Harrison all my life. Does that mean I know everything about him or does he hide secrets? I have to risk it. Harrison will be the father of my child. I have to take the risk. "My deepest secret is that I am an... an... Outsider."

"Why didn't you tell me?" Harrison stands up and shouts.

"I-I didn't know how?" I stutter. He intimidates me when he is angry.

"We have known each other for sixteen years! Do you not trust me enough to tell me something like that?" 

"Harrison!" I am shouting too, "Try being in my situation. I am sixteen, pregnant, training to fight with the prospect of exilation and if the faction leaders find out what I am I will be annihilated!" 

"Dani, I've been through it all too!"

"You were pregnant, dude thats news!" I use the sarcasm to hurt not to joke.

"Very funny! You know what I mean. Why can't anyone trust you?"

"Trust! Trust! Is that all anyone thinks about?"

"No, it's just we can't trust you!"

"I wish you were dead!" I storm away. 


I can hear Harrison call after me but I just slam the door. Idiot! How could I have thought he loved me?
