Exiting the “Choosing Ceremony” with the other’s, i’m tired from sitting so long, and disappointed. Eric promised me that he would be here, on my proud day, but he never showed, and running down the streets with these clowns i’m thoroughly annoyed. Running, climbing, jumping....
I’m glad that Eric sneaked and met with me this past year to train me, once I told him of my decision to join Dauntless. He’s the most amazing man that i’ve ever met, well... besides my father. Strong, courageous, and gorgeous... for the past year and a half, he’s been my world, and I love him.
My father didn’t sit with me, he was disappointed in my decision, and he didn’t show either. I would have been upset, if I wasn’t starting a new life with Eric, the love of my life. I know my father, and he’ll get over it, he just has to see how happy I am with Eric and Dauntless.
The sound of his voice sends a wave of heat, all the way down to my core. His deep baritone, turning me on... All smiles, I turn and what I see causes my heart to skip a beat. It seems that time has stopped, and regaining my composure just as quickly take a few deep breaths.
A tall blonde, beautiful as he called her, slender build, his hand gently caressing her cheek. I open my mouth, but no words come out, I want to scream his name, to shout out that he blongs to me.
“Are you staying over tonight? He asks.
“Yeah, this is starting to be an every night thing, when are you going to make it official?” She says, playfully biting his finger.
I don’t want to hear his response. “Eric!” I yell, which comes out way to loud. Finally noticing me, I’m expecting him to be afraid, upset that he’s been caught. Instead, he takes her hand in his, and turning his attention back to her, he kisses it.
“Give me a few minutes...”
“Sure.” She says, giving me a once over, before leaving.
Im waiting for him to come to me, as I’m frozen in place. The heartbreak at what I just witnessed, is too much. To make matters worse, the bastard holds his ground, waiting for me to come to him.
On shaky legs, I slowly make my way over to him, the situation is too surreal. “What are you doing here?”
“What am I doing here? Today was the choosing ceremony, I chose you, this dauntless shit...” I state, officially over the shock, and highly pissed off.
“Yeah... about that, she’s just a friend.”
“Bullshit, I heard you... You’re screwing her?”
“Well... we haven’t...”
“Rhetorical question asshole!”
Its been awhile since we’d been together, and the truth is that i’d. been a month or two. I waited, there was so much going on, but why couldn’t he?
“Look, you still belong to me, and Aly was just a way to pass the time until you got here. I’m done with her, its just you now.”
Pulling me to him, his strong arms giving me comfort, reminding me of those nights when he held me close. I can’t resist kissing him back, when his lips lightly touch mines. His tongue gently caresses mines, promising much more than what he can offer at the moment.
“Fine... forgiven, but not forgotten.” I say, offering him a small smile. I’d given up so much, I can’t let him go over one small indiscretion. I mean it was sorta my fault for not being there for him, when he needed me. He’s a man, and they have needs.
“Good, I’ll see you tomorrow at training.”
“For the first week or two, initiates are required to stay at the training compound.”
There’s a small silence, thick with unease, and mistrust. “I told you that it was over, and it is... I love you, you know that.” No I didn’t know that, but I had hoped. “I love you too.” I state, my arms around his neck, our bodies meshed together, Its been awhile, and I want him.
“Soon.” He says, giving me a quick kiss, and disengaging my arms. “Its getting late, I’ll see you tomorrow.
