16. Chapter 16


Four led me to the simulation room, "Shut the door" he tells me and I do so. "You're gonna practice" Four informs me, "In my fear landscapes?" I ask him, "No, in mine. We go in together" he says as he takes off his jacket. "Have you ever done this before" I ask him, "No, I haven't" he tells me as he gets a needle ready. "Are you sure you want to?" I question, "Why wouldn't I?" he asks. "I don't know, I mean you haven't told me anything about yourself and now you just wanna let me inside of your head" I point out, "Are you afraid of that?" he asks, "You're not?" I question, "No" he tells me. I watch as he injects himself first, he then comes over and moves my jacket down a bit and injects me with the serum. We lay down next to each other and close our eyes. I open my eyes to see the sky, I look down to find myself on a rail high above the city. "Fear of heights. I'm not surprised" I tell Four as I stand up on the rail, I offer my hand out to Four who grabs it tightly and stands up. "It's not real. We could just jump" I tell him as I rub circles on the back of his hand, "No. A Divergent would jump, Dauntless would get to that building. If you wanna pass, if you wanna avoid discovery, you have to do everything the way a Dauntless would do it. You have to find tool, some method to survive" he informs me. We walk along the rail and climb through the building, to find ourselves trapped inside a vent, with the walls closing in on us. "Fear of confinement. You have to find a way of stopping it. What would a Dauntless do?" Four asks me, I look down to see some nails on the floor. I grab them and start to put them under the wall, trying to stop them from closing in on us, "Good. Take your time. I'm just enjoying myself in a shrinking box" Four sarcastic says. I roll my eyes and continue to work on the walls, my back was against Four's chest. The walls finally get stopped by the nails and we now find ourselves in a room, with a girl tied to a chair and a table with a gun on it. "As Dauntless soldier you have to follow orders you don't always agree with" Four tells me as he picks up the gun and stands in front of the girl, "Who is she" I ask him. "She's an innocent. I have to kill her" he tells me as he points the gun at her head, "But I can never do it. Unless I look away" he says and looks away before pulling the trigger. The scene changes and now we are in Abnegation, "Why are we in Abnegation?" I ask Four. "You last fear is your worst fear. It lives in the deepest part of your mind" he tells me, I look around to see we are in a house and Marcus coming down the stairs with a belt in his hand. "Marcus had a son. What was his name?" I ask Four, "Tobias" Marcus says. "Tobias, I was trying to help you, to be better" Marcus says as he walks closer to us, I watch as Four backs up and I put a hand on his shoulder. Marcus goes to hit Four with his belt, "No!" I shout and block his swinging arm. Marcus pushes me to the ground and Four knocks him out. I wake from the simulation and turn to Four to see him panting and shaking, "Come" I tell him as I grab his hand and lead him to the balcony.

"Four? Four fears?" I ask him as I stand beside him, "Four then, four now. I keep going in there, but I don't think you ever lose them" he tells me. "Can I ask you something?" I ask him, "Sure" he says, "What's your tattoo?" I ask him and he smiles. "Do you wanna see it?" he asks and I nod my head. Four turns so his back is facing me and he takes of his shirt, I watch his muscles move as he squares his shoulders. "It's amazing" I tell him as I touch his back, "The factions. Why do you have all of them?" I ask him. "I don't wanna be just one thing. I can't be. I want to be brave, and I want to be selfless, intelligent and honest and kind" he informs me, "Divergent" I whisper to myself. He turns around so his facing me, "Well, I'm still working on kind" he tells me. Four leans in and kisses me, I place my hands on his chest as his arms go around my waist. We break apart and I rest my forehead against his, "I don't wanna go to fast" I tell him. "It's okay. I've already got my spot on the floor" he says and I smile before placing a small kiss on his lips.
