15. Chapter 15


I was walking past the Pit when I heard a noise, I stopped walking and turned to the sound. I got in a position that made me either fight or run, I heard the noise get closer and closer when all of a sudden, Tris pops around the corner. I relax my stands and glare at her, "Sorry" she says, "What are you doing?" I ask her. "I was trying to find you. You disappeared today" she tells me,"Yeah. I went to see Caleb. He was telling me that Erudite is trying to over take Abnegation" I inform her. "Oh my god" she whispers as she holds her hand to her mouth, "Come on. We can talk about it in the morning" she says and we both turn to walk towards our quarters. When suddenly three guys with mask grab us, two guys had me while one had Tris. I elbow one in the stomach and kicked the other one away from me, I went to help Tris when one grabbed my leg and tripped me to the floor. I spat blood out before rolling to my feet, I ducked under a swing arm but didn't see the second one and get punched on the cheek. They grab my arms and dragged us away and over to the chasm, "Come on, get them over" one of the guys says as Tris and I were pushing against them. I managed to wiggle an arm free and pull a mask off one of the guys, only to reveal Al. I kick Al in the leg and he goes down, I push the other guy off me and jump onto the back of Tris's attack. He rams me into the wall and I slide down it, "Hey!" I someone shouts and Four runs around towards us. I watch as he stands in front me and fights the guys off, knocking them to the ground unconscious. Four comes over and squats in front of me, "You alright?" he asks me and I nod my head, to shaken to speak. He moves to pick me up, "Tris" I manage to whisper her name, "Someone else is helping her" Four tells me. He picks me up bridal style and carries me to his room.

"Here, put this on" he tells me as he holds out a sweater, "Thank you" I say as I put it on. "You'll be safe here" Four tells me as he kneels down in front of me, I watch as he grabs my hand in his and looks at my wounded hands. He goes to clean them but as the water hits them, I hiss and grab his hand, he stops what his doing and looks at me. "Sorry" I say and let go of his hand, I watch as he gently tends to my wounds. "I can't believe Al" I say, "You and Tris are moving up through the ranks and he's failing. It makes him hate himself, it makes him hate you. He's...he's just afraid" Four informs me. "Everyone's afraid" I say, Four stops and looks up at me, "I know, but fear does something strange to people like Al. But not you. Fear doesn't shut you down, it wakes you up. I've seen it" Four tells me. He finishes attending to my wounds and stands, "You should lie down, get some sleep" he tells me, "Yeah" I agree. "I'll take the floor" he says, I watch him leave before curling up and falling asleep.

The next morning I wake up to find Four not on the floor or in the room, I get up and sit at the end of the bed just as Four enters. "How are you feeling?" he asks me, "Better" I tell him as I start to do my hair in a braid. "Good. Where did you go yesterday" Four asks, "To see my brother" I say. "Is it getting a little boring for you here, is it?" he questions, I finish my braid and look at him, "My brother said that he thinks Erudite's planning to overthrow Abnegation. Do you think they could do that?" I ask him. "Yeah, I do. I think it's possible. Depends on how fay they're willing to go" Four says, "I'm worried about my parents" I tell him as I put my boots on. "Yeah. But I think you got other things you need to worry about. Don't you" he asks, I look down at my shoes, "Yeah. I should go" I tell him and leave his room.

I walk into the Pit to get some breakfast when I bump into Christina. "Hey" she greets and gives me a hug, "Hey" I smile at her. Chris looks at the sweater I'm wearing, "Is that your sweater?" she asks, "No" I tell her. "So what happened to you last night?" she asks, as I was about to answer, I looked past her shoulder to see Al talking to Tris. I leave Christina and walk over to them, I grab Al's arm of Tris and shove him away from us. "If you ever come close to her or me again, I will kill you" I hiss at him, "Evie..." he calls my name, "You just stay away from us! You are a coward" I tell him as I hold back tears. Al turns and walks away from us, Tris and I regroup with Christina and Will. We leave the Pit, completely forgetting about breakfast. And on the way back to the quarters, Tris and I tell them what happened.

"I can't believe he would do that? It's not like him at all" Chris says, we start to hear an alarm going off, "What's that?" Will asks. We walk with the crowd to the chasm, only to see Dauntless members pulling out Al's body from it. "Oh, my god!" Tris says, "Must have just jumped" one of the guys suggests. I walk away from the seen as I start to fell terrible, "Evie" Four calls my name but I keep walking. "Evie!" He calls again, "Leave me alone" I tell him over my shoulder, he grabs my arm and turns me around. "I'm sorry about Al" Four tells me, "It's my fault that he's dead" I say to Four. "No, it's not because of you or Tris. He made his own choice. He would have been factionless, he was not gonna pass the final test" Four informs me, "Neither am I" I tell him. "Why do you say that?" he asks, "You know why. And as soon as all the others find out, they're gonna kill us" I tell him, "Us?" Four questions. "Tris" I inform him, "I'm not gonna let that happen" he tells me.
