Saleesa James Chapter Seven"Moura," Kilene says. "you may go start now."Saleesa James Chapter Seven by TaylorSwift888
So we all follow Moura, who takes us into the compound's building. This one is large, yet I have never really noticed it before. She takes us to the middle where we sit down in a circle, small enough to hear each other, large enough to not touch each other, but just barely.
"So, who wants to go first?"
"Doing what?" I ask.
"Well" She smiles widely at me. "Since you asked you can go first to be the example. Here in Amity, we adore peace and believe it is the reason war strikes;when people do not know how to keep the peace."
It sounds right.
"So in order to keep peace, you must know the people you surround yourself with well. So you will say your full name, what factions you came from-even if it was here-and then one thing about you."
I remember doing this in my lower level classes. My teacher would call in the Counselor-who would be Amity-and hey said it would help keep the peace. Well Dauntless children, can never keep the peace.
Saleesa James Chapter SixWhen I wake up, I'm one of the first. Sofie is sitting at the foot of my bed, staring at me. Waiting for me to wake up, I imagine.Saleesa James Chapter Six by TaylorSwift888
"You know, you could have just woken me up." I say, my voice still sluggish from sleep.
"I'm sorry, you just looked so peaceful."
I smile, and she does too. She doesn't wear her blue clothing though, she traded it for a red tight shirt and a short yellow skirt stopping mid-thigh. I have clothes sitting next to my bed.
"I wasn't sure what you'd like." She tells me. "So I just got one of everything, and you could save the rest."
I sit up all the way now, no longer propped on my elbows like I was before. I take the clothes, and realize some of the other kids are waking up now. And they are all getting dressed in this very room. I understand that sleeping in the same room will help us make peace, but changing? I don't understand it, but I get out of bed anyway. I don't this to be the reason I fail initiation.
I pick up a Amity dress with yellow top porti
A Whisper of Memories Chapter FiveUriah’s POVA Whisper of Memories Chapter Five by TaylorSwift888
“So you climbed the Ferris wheel, huh?” I say, tripping across the car to reach Tris. I sit next to her, and Marlene sits next to me.
“Yes.” She says it innocently, like she’s a small little girl, but I know better.
“Pretty smart of you,” Marlene says. “Like…Erudite smart. I’m Marlene.”
“Tris.” She says, fighting a smile.
“Yeah, I know who you are. The first tends to stick in your head.”
I take out one of the paintballs from gun, desperate to enter the conversation with Marlene. I squeeze it between my fingers, and the train lurches to the side. I fall against Tris, pinching the pink paintball. It sprays a stream of foul-smelling paint on her face.
Marlene giggles loudly, so it was worth it to embarrass myself in front of her to make her laugh. Tris wipes off the paint from her face and wipes it on my cheek. I can smell it wandering through the car.

Why would she do this? It would easy on me-well easier-if I accidently hit Al, but hitting her? With an airborne knife? No, I can’t.
“If you flinch, Al takes your place. Understand?”
I keep my eyes on hers as I throw the knife, trying not to flinch myself. It hits the board with a thud. She closes her eyes.
“You about done, Stiff?” I ask.
She shakes her head. “No.”
“Eyes open then.” I almost choke on the words as I tap the spot between my eyebrows. I should be making this easier on her, not harder. But no, I should make it harder, so that way she’ll think that if she can’t do it then Al most definitely won’t be able to.
She stares at me and I take another knife. The one lands a few inches closer to her than I would like it to, but I have to make this hard.
I swallow and sweat gathers in my palms. “Come on, Stiff. Let someone else stand there and take it.”
