Tris' Story
I'm Beatrice, but you can call me "Tris". That is how I am known by all of my family and friends. All of my family is Abnegation. Before the story of Four and I began, my family only looked in the mirror while I got a haircut. I was tested, but I did not have a test result. I was surprised when my faction tester pushed me out the door whispering to tell my parents that I was sick. That could only mean one thing, I'm DIVERGENT!!! I never told anybody. The reason that you take the test is in advisement of which faction that you should be. Each year all of the 16-year-olds take an aptitude test. You have to decide how to face all of your greatest fears. They decide which faction you should be in by the way you complete the test. The five factions are Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. Abnegation means that you are selfless. Amity means that you are peaceful. Candor means that you are honest. Dauntless means that you are brave. Erudite means that you are intelligent. The way that you choose your faction is that you cut yourself, and let your blood drip in the faction that you have chosen. It's hard to choose because you really want to be all of them. It was also hard for me to choose because my family was all Abnegation. I really didn't want to disappoint my family, but I would rather disappoint them than to not be happy for my entire life. Then, the time came and I told my mom that I was Divergent. My mom told me that no matter what I choose or am, she will always love me. She knew that I probably would not be able to choose Abnegation, although I was going to miss my mom greatly since she was always there for me no matter what. She is one of the most important people in my life. I guess everyone feels that way about their mom. If I chose Dauntless, I wouldn't be afraid to just do what makes me happy. Easier said than done. I really was going to miss my family. But the day arrived, and I chose Dauntless. I was really scared at first, but then I met my friends and Four.
The Meeting
They met at the ferris wheel. As soon as they saw each other, they knew that it was meant to be. They were...CONNECTED!!! As soon as Four saw her test results, it was destined to be a match. They were always there for each other. They knew that they would be together even if it wasn't going to be right at that moment. She knew he was going to be there for her even if she had doubts within her. They knew that their biggest fear would be losing each other.
Four's Story
I'm Four. I am one of the leaders in the Dauntless faction. Before this all started, my dad was the mayor until someone found out that he was abusing his children. I never thought that my dad would be my biggest fear in the world. Tris helped me in facing my fears. When I'm with her, it feels like nothing else even matters-not even my biggest nightmare. Now, my biggest fear is in losing her. I would do anything for her, and with her. I am certain that I would die without her in my life. She makes me feel like a carefree child again, without any fears while in her company. I love her so much. Sometimes, I don't think that she knows it. I was probably just acting crazy during those times. We have the biggest thing in the world in common. We're both Divergent. That is the number one way in which we connect with each other. Each of us knows how it is to be Divergent and to have the world out to kill us. For everyone else is out trying to kill others. Divergents all depend on others help to protect this place before there is nothing left to protect. Most importantly, we protect each other. Together, we protect what was lost in the first place, even if it costs us some of the most important people in our lives. There is only one person that I need...Tris. She makes my life completely worthwhile. Without her, I know that I wouldn't survive. I had many other siblings that went through the same thing that I went through. I think that I had it worse, though. Whenever dad got mad, he would blame me. I always got beat, even when I had not done anything wrong. I wish my dad knew how it felt to get beat as a child when you had not done anything. With Tris, she is there for me during all of my biggest fears. I need someone to be there for me no matter what I do. Tris is that person, even if it is hard, she understands me more than I can even comprehend. She means more to me than I can start to explain.
