12. chapter 12


After we won the game, we start to walk off, back to the train tracks. "Hey, Evie and Tris" Ezra calls our names as he jogs to my side, "Yeah?" I ask him. "Come with us" he says, "Where are you going?" Tris questions, "A short cut back. A little initiation ritual, Dauntless style" he informs us. I look over my shoulder to see Four glaring holes at Ezra, I give him a questioning look and he simply looks away. I smile at Ezra and we take off with other Dauntless. We climb to the roof of a building that overlooks the city, I notice a zip line has been set up for the initiates to cross over the city towards the Dauntless building. I watch as a Dauntless guy gets attached to the line, "Let's do this!" he shouts and they set him off. "You're up" Ezra says as he looks at me, I smile at Tris before walking over and getting attached to the zip line. "Go, Evie!" I hear Tris shout out, "Don't forget to pull the break at the bottom!" a guy shouts over the cheering crowd. I nod my head as I look towards the ground, "Ready?" Ezra asks me, "Alright, let's do it" I say. Ezra pulls me back and I launch off down the zip line, I spread my arms out as I take in the sight around me. I go past a building that was so close to me, I could touch it with my fingertips. I duck my arms back in and scream in surprise as the zip line plummets down, I do a loop before straightening out again. I reach up behind me and slowly pull the break as I see the Dauntless building coming closer. I end up stopping a meter away from the building, two Dauntless guys helped me off as the others cheered for me. I waited for the next person to come down to see that it was Tris, I notice that she wasn't slowing down. "Pull the break!" I shout at her, and others soon shout after me. She manages to pull the break just before she hits the wall at the end of the line, "Yeah!" Tris shouts as we clap and cheer for her.

I walk into the Pit with the other initiates to celebrate, "Evie!" I hear someone shout my name. I turn around and walk over to Four, "Hey" he greets me and I say the same thing to him as we stand closer to each other. "Congratulations" he says as he moves closer to me, "Thanks" I whisper as we now stand toe to toe. "You know I wanted to say to you that you did good tonight. You were brave" he tells me, I smile as he says that. "Anyway, you should get back to your friends" Four tells me and squeezes my shoulder, "Okay" I say. Four turns and rejoins his friends as I go over and join mine.

Max stands in front of us with Four and Eric on either side of him, "if you ranked above the red line, you'll move onto the second stage of training. If you're below it, we'll waste no more time on you. Here are your rankings" Max addresses us. I hold my breath as the ranking as revealed, cheers go up from other initiates as their names appear. I keep watching until my name appears with a score of 10. Christina, Will and Tris all pat me on the back. "You made it" I say to Tris as her name's next to 15 and Al's next to 21, I watch as both Tris and Al smile with relief. "We all made it!" Will points out as we make a huddle, and smile and laugh at what we've just achieved.
