Scout awoke early. She quickly dressed in a set of black jeans a short sleeved white blouse. She fixed her hair nervously, excited for the Choosing Ceremony today. She knew who she was going to choose already.
Scout was also making plans to sneak little Ruby in, she wasn't about to leave her best friend behind.
Ruby got dressed quickly in what the foster mother had laid out since she still had to go to Chossing Ceremony and watch her friend leave her behind.
Or what everyone thought...
Choosing time. Everyone walke dto the ceremony and the 16 year olds split off to wher eto theyw ere steaed while everyone else went and sat in teh Candor section.
Scout nervously waited, tapping her foot until it was her turn. She stepped into the circle, and taking the knife slashed ehr palm. Scout threw her hand out over the Fire, it sizzled when it hit the coals. She wanted Dauntless.
Just as this happened somebody stummbled in, He was dressed like no Faction wearing rags, he was gaspinga dn was badly injured,
"The out-outside." he gasped falling to his feet justa few feet from Scout,
"It's-it's safe." he wheezed, totally collapsing.
Scout stood there startled as Abnigation adn Amity took the now dead man away. THe room was silent.
As Scout walked in pulling Ruby and having her sit on the outside so Scout could take her away with her. Ruby watched as the man stumbled in she was scared but didnt know what would happen to him.
She wanted to see the outside after what had happen to the man she was afriad now.
The rest of the Choosings were hurried and teh room was cleared quickly. The new Dauntless thundered past, Scout reached out and pulled Ruby into the herd of people. She'd taken a Dauntless paid for a Dauntless jacket a few weeks ago after bargening with the Factionless. Now she put it on Ruby as they ran so she would fit in and wouldn't look like a Candor.
As Scout pulled Ruby into the crowd and got the jacket on her they had to run. But what Ruby didnt know was that her Foster mother had seen this happen to and thats exactly what Scout didnt want to happen.
They got to the trains without a problem, Scout was relieved. She and Ruby had practiced jumping on and off the trains at night. They'd sneak out of their homes and practice on the trains that came by, at first they had got very banged up and bruises trying but they got the hang of it eventually.
The train sped past and the whole faction started to run, jumping it cars.
When it came there turn to jump they had started running and Ruby jumped first almost missing her footing but someone pulled her in then Scout jumped and she made it perfectly.
"Thanks," Ruby said to the girl who pulled her in.
((Avril, when RPing you shouldn't PowerPlay another character that's not yours. EX: You said Scout jumped onto the Train perfectly fine. Scout is my charrie therefore befor eyou play her you have to ask.))
Scout leapt onto the train barely clasping the door handle of the train intime to get on. She stood there, nervous and quiet as the train whipped past the buildings adn scenery.
(( Sorry I didn't know.... I Kinda feel bad now.))
"I'm scared what do you think if they find out that i'm not a transfer?" I asked as i tried to find alittle more room.
((Don't feel bad, it's fine, everyone makes mistakes))
"Ssshhh." Scout whispered putting her finger on Ruby's lips,
"Don't talk about it." she said softly into he rlittle friend's ear.
"JUMP!" they heard someone yell. Scout turned, everyone was jumping out she grabbed her friend's hand adn went to the edge. Scout let go of Ruby before she jumped. Scout didn't want to drag her friend down if she missed.
((I'm sick by the way, if I forget something tell me please.))
I jumped but landed on my knees and hands. As I tried to catch up with the others as we ran to a tower.
"Where are we," I asked Scout?
Scout shook her head,
"I don't know..." she muttered. SOmebody was skeaping, explaining that they had to jumpoff the building to get to the Dauntless place.
"Remember, you're Dauntless you've done this beofre." Scout whipsered into Ruby's ear, reminding her she had to play a character.
"What was your 'new' name again?" she asked. They'd have to change their names of course to be totally new people...
"ummm Molly," i said quietly. I hated my new name but it was the only choice since the girl that had the name Molly kinda died.
The crowd was nervous about jumping, it had to be an intiate first, not a Dauntless. Scout finally made her desicion
"Mine's Skylar." Scout said. She'd decided to change her name to her middle name. Since she was an intiate it didn't really matter what she'd chosen.
Scout steppe dto the edge of the building and then leaped off, falling through the air, unsure of what was going to happen to her or what was at he bottom.
After Scout or now Skylar went i got up and said "My name is Molly," as i jumped to the bottemless pit.
I felt the wind and it felt awesome. The pit ended in a net thay held us from the ground. I started screaming as i went into the hole.
Skylar rolled out of the net and onto the platform.
"What's your name? Choose carefully." a stern voice said.
"Skylar." Skylar said confidently. She then stepped aside and Molly was pulled out of the net, it was dark, nobody really noticed she was a different girl.
The rest, or most of the rest of the transfers jumped. SOme couldn't cut it and immiedetly became factionless.
I got asked the same question that i heard Skylar get asked. I said "Molly."
No one really pointed me out as to being younger or not suppose to be in that group.
Skylar pulled her friend aside,
"You're gona have to find somewhere o you know, chill, stay, bunk, whatever until training is over, then you can move in with me." she promised her little friend. The intiates were being led off now. Skylar quickly squeezed Ruby's shoulders and moved off,
"Seeya tonight." she prmoised.
