2. Choosing Day
Dad saw me come in. "Hayley what did you get?" Dad asked. "I...um I'm not aloud to tell you," I said nervously. "Hayley it's okay to tell us we won't tell anyone," mom said. "Okay I got Dauntless...and Abnegation and Erudite," I said the last two under my breath. "Dauntless," he said,"that's great!"
The next day came fast. I woke up and threw on some clothes that I got off the floor and ran out the house. I jumped on the train before anyone. Finally people started jumping on. First Joe, then Sierra, Hector, a few people I didn't know, my enemy Joanna, the trainer Harrison, and finally Henry. I walked away and jumped first.
We were in the big dome like building I was with the other Dauntless when I heard my name. I went up to the five bowls: hot coals for Dauntless, pebbles for Abnegation, water for Erudite, glass for Candor, and dirt for Amity. They gave me the knife and I cut the palm of my hand. I heard the sizzle of my blood on the coals of Dauntless and all of them cheering.
We all ran out the building everyone making a path for us. We jumped on the train and sat there. Finally the roof came into view and we jumped. We were all asked by Harrison if we wanted to jump first. An Abnegation girl jumped first. Then me. I've done this before because some Dauntless borns go and do it and I was one of them. We do this as many times before we get caught. This will be fun.
