2. Chapter 2 Tris
Four asked me to come in his fear simulation with him. Why? I was terrible at simulations. I remember scraping the ground crying for help when I was being pecked to death by crows and almost drowning in a tank of rising water. He told a fear had been replaced by another one, and it was about me.
