6. Six

I hear footsteps approaching and scamper back to the chair. The door opens. "Dani, your an outsider." Christina says as she enters the room. "An outsider is someone who..."

"I know what it is!" I say, "I know I have to die!" I get up and leave.

I open the door to my house. "Dani! How did it go?" Mum asks. 

"Great, yeah. I got Dauntless!"

Mum can see right through me. "What did you really get?" She says to me. I take a deep breath. "I am an... outsider!" Mum looks at me. She doesn't speak. "Dad should be home soon!" She says and leaves quickly.

Dad arrives. "Wheres mum?" He asks me. I point to the kitchen. He leaves. I sit on my bed, waiting for the questions. Dad enters with mum. He rushes over to me and sits down next to me. "Do you know what it means to be an..."
 

"I think so, but not completely." I say. I pull my hair from behind my ears.

"An- an outsider is someone who belongs to all and no faction. The government are afraid of them and wish to send them outside the fence, where they are thought to belong, or kill them." I hang my head, fighting back the tears. I take a deep breath. "What do I do then?"

"We think it would be best for you to choose Dauntless tomorrow. Then, you can stay close to home until we work this out. OK?" I nod. That's a lie. I'm no OK I'm bloody frightened. Dad gets of my bed and kisses my forehead. "It'll be alright!" Famous last words.

We stand outside the choosing ceremony room. My parents are in the audience. Bee-tee, Sierra, Harry and I chat in the corner. "I mean, I think all of us here know where we belong!" Bee-tee says. No we don't! I think. "Yeah!" Sierra says, "But have you seen Di? She's totally different from normal!" Harry nods.

"I know!" Harry says, "She isn't her usual self at all!"

"What do you think she got?"

"Divergent, perhaps!"

"Poor kid!"

I remain silent. A Divergent is nothing compared to me. I'm an outsider. The crowd starts to move and we move with it. 

We stand in a row on the stage. We get called up alphabetically by our last names so I am pretty near the front as Eaton. 

"Dianna Beret!" Di walks up to the front. She takes the knife and touches the blade to her palm. Her blood drops over the bowl for... Abnegation?

There are mutters among the Dauntless. Harry, who is next to me turns and says, "I knew there was something up, and no wonder. Abnegation! And Di, of all people." I nod and wait. Sierra, Jo, Harry and Marla are all before me and all choose Dauntless. 

"Danielle Eaton!" I take a deep breath and walk to the front. I take the knife and walk to the Dauntless bowl. The blade slices my palm and the blood drops onto the coals. The Dauntless cheer as I run over to my friends. Next up is Dirk.

"Dirk Thomas!" Dirk drops blood into the water of Erudite. He smiles at us as he leaves towards the wave of blue. Finally Bee-tee. Everyone knows she'll choose Dauntless. She has that sort of personality. As she runs towards us she turns around and looks at Di in Abnegation. I walk up to her. "Who would have thought!" I say to her.

"Yeah, shame!" She says wistfully. I know she'll miss Di. We all will.
