My name is Beatrice. I live in a decaying and half destroyed Chicago. The year is 2018 and I just turned 16 (this means I need to go through a ceremony, to decide my home faction). The ceremony took place in a huge tower that used to be called the Sears tower. It is a huge glass building, that I never understood the use for (my dad always said it was office work). I had to leave my family especially since I found out I’m Divergent which is “dangerous” (I still don’t know what Divergent means though). I was so worried about leaving my faction “Abnegation”, but in the end I left my family and went to the Dauntless, aka the brave. My brother even left! I never saw it coming, but he went to Erudite. My brother was always the kind of person who cared for others. Losing family members aside, I go to sleep and await for tomorrow.
"Today is the day”
(there are five main factions that help run our society) Abnegation- the selfless, Dauntless- the brave, Erudite- the wise, Candor- the honest, and Amity- the workers).
I say to myself as I started initiation, and found out that not only did I need to jump onto a moving train in order to get to Dauntless H.Q., but I needed to jump down from the top of a building and into a deep dark hole too.
We will have a difficult initiation that includes, fighting, knife throwing, shooting a gun, and simulations
I was the first jumper (which was really awesome). I felt the breeze as I fell down all those stories of the building. I entered the hole and soon hit a net. There was a young man named Four, who helped me out. He asked me, “What's your name? Think about it, You don’t get to pick again.”, and I said “Tris”.
When I first came in here the raven caught my attention , can I get three from my collar bone to my heart to represent each one of my family
I work here and I was wondering if you just came here to talk, so do you want a tattoo
I met a girl named Christina who transferred from Erudite (the know-it-alls) and she was actually nice.
A scary man named Eric steps up; he is covered in tattoos and piercings. I notice Four stands up next to him (I guess both of them will be my instructors). Eric explains...
After we dispersed we headed to our bunker with our belongings to get situated. Once we were all in the room I meet up with Christina and we decide to go to the tattoo parlor. Once I got there I saw Tori sitting in a chair and looking over a book with designs for tattoos in it. I walked quickly over to her and hugged her when I got to her I asked her if she works here
