5. Choosing Ceremony
I got to the Hub and walked in quietly with Beatrice. I waited patiently for my name to be called. After a long time, I walked up to the stage and received the knife from the man. I decided to find Tobias. I raised my hand over the coals and let my blood drip down off my skin. Beatrice looked surprised as if I was too perfect for Dauntless. She picked Dauntless too. That was actually surprising. After the ceremony, we climed onto the roof to board the train. I jumped on and landed perfectly. I helped Beatrice on because she was having trouble. A girl with short black hair laughed at Tris because of her landing strategy. I gave Tris the nickname in seventh grade. I later met a few transfers. Al, Christina, and Will. They all seemed nice. People in the cars ahead of us started screaming, and I figured we would be jumping off. I, as last time, landed perfectly. Tris fell and I helped her rub off all of the rocks. Christina fell and Tris went to help her up. They walked back to me as someone started to speak. I wasn't listening but I listened to one part. I had to jump off this building. Being the stupid person I am I said,"Sir I'll go first." He nodded and I walked to the edge. "Stiff,"I heard somebody say. I turned around and saw it was Peter. I punched him in the gut. I smirked as I walked to the edge of the building.
I was waiting for someone to jump off when I saw a figure. It was a girl. Abnegation. She had long brown hair about below her butt. She landed safely in the net and I said,"What's your name?" "My old name was Ella, but now I'm changing it to El,"she said staring into my eyes. Old name? Why would she change her name?
"What's your name,"I asked, even though I knew it. "Four,"he said. I took his hand and he helped me out of the net. "I know who you really are,"he whispered in my ear. Beatrice jumped next. She told Four her name was Tris. I couldn't help but notice, Four kept staring at Tris. Everyone jumped and a lady led us down to the dorms. Tris didn't change into the black clothes laid out. I changed into black leggings, a red shirt, and camo boots. Christina showed me this cool thing called Eye liner and Mascara. Even though we were starting to train tomorrow Christina convinced us to go get a tattoo. Tris got one of three birds on her collarbone. I decided to do my hair done. I got my brownish black hair dip dyed blonde at the ends. I then decided to get a tattoo. It was of the Dauntless sign. It was placed on my right shoulder. I don't really care if it shows.
