Divergent High

Drama / Romance

Chapter 1

Divergent high

.beep beep beep. Ugh a new school in a new town. My mum is a model and my dad is a director so we all have to move where ever their work needs them and right now that is Chicago. I do my daily routine and grab the keys to my black mustang and speed off to school.

Time laps 10 min

I'm pulling into the parking lot when I almost run a guy over. "IM SO SORRY!"I yell out to him. He's kind of cute with deep ocean blue eyes, short dark brown hair, his nose slightly hooks at the tip, and he has a full lower lip. When he turns around his eyes are full of fury. But when he sees me his eyes soften."Its fine." he says and smiles at me. Wow this school is weird.

I start walking to the front desk to get my schedule when I bump into someone. I look up and see striking green eyes.

"I'm so sorry" I say looking at the ground.

"Its fine, I should have been looking where I was going." He said holding out his hand to help me up. I take his hand and stand up.

"Thanks" I say dusting myself off.

"It's no problem" he said smiling "my name is Will by the way"

"My name is Bea-… um my name is Tris "I said stuttering.

"See you around some time?" he asked winking at me and I giggle….. Wait since when do I giggle?

"Yeah sure"

"You should come sit by me at lunch you could make some friends." He said nudging me at the last part.

"Um sure I guess" I say looking at the floor.

"Bye Tris "he said walking away.

"Bye um Will was it?"

"Yeah it's Will" a girl said from behind me. I turn around to see a tall girl with tan skin short dark brown hair and brown eyes.

"Hey I'm Christina" she said holding her hand out for me to shake. I take her hand and shake it.

"I'm Tris but I have to get my schedule bye Will and Christina, can I call you Chris?"

"Yeah sure just go get your schedule."

"Kay, bye guys, see you at lunch Will." I say as I walk to the front counter. "Hi I'm Beatrice Prior "I say to the lady behind the counter. When I speak she looks away from her phone.

"Hello how can I help you" she said smiling "my name is Tori."

"I need my schedule." I say flatly and she just nods and looks in the files. She pulls out a white paper and hands it to me. "Have a nice day" she said and looks back down to her phone.

Ugh. I have math first. I've never been really good at math unlike my big brother Caleb.

I start walking to my locker and see there is a guy and some of his friends talking in front of it. I tap on one of their shoulders and he turns around to look at me. He looks familiar. Short brown hair deep ocean blue ey- my thoughts are interrupted by him saying "hey you're that cute girl that almost killed me this morning" Ooooh so that's where I know him

"Yea about that I'm so sorry" I say and look at the floor.

"Could u give me a ride in that amazing car of yours or is it your dads or something?" I look at him in disbelief.

"You want to ride in my baby? If you give me 20 bucks." I say looking as serious as possible.

"I don't have any money but I'm free Saturday" he says leaning on my locker. I shake my head

“I don't know I'll think about it. Now please move I need to get my books." I say and he moves just enough to get let me get to my locker.

"Ok I'll see you in math." Wait how does he now I'm in math. Or even his math class. I must have shown confusion on my face because he hands me back my schedule. Wait he took my schedule?

How did he do that I was paying attention the whole time. I think. Anyway I have no idea where math is. I think I'll go ask that one guy to walk me there. I walk back to my locker but no one's there. Two big hands cover my eyes. I scream as loud as I can.

"Tris it's just me" says a deep soothing voice

"And you are?"

"It's Four" who is Four?

"Four? Who's that?"

"You almost ran me over today"

"Ooooh so that's your name"

"Yea" Four says chuckling

"Will you walk me to class I have no idea where math is"

"Yea sure"

As we're walking I can't get over fours great looks. His perfect jaw line, his deep blue eyes you can get lost in with a single glance, his big -but not the gross big- muscles that are outlined by his black skin tight shirt. He's so hot. Stop it u just met the guy and he looks like he will kill you If you get too close!

"Here we are" already? Well I need to get to get in class. I start walking into the class room but trip over Four's foot. I close my eyes waiting for impact but it doesn't happen. I look behind me and see Four's face is really close to mine so close that our lips are almost touching. I blush so red I could put a tomato to shame.

"What’s wrong Tris too close for comfort?" he asked and smirked. Wow he has a sexy smirk. How perfect can he get?!

"yea just a bit" I look away and feel something on my chest area I look down and blush even redder than before " can you move your hand please" I say without looking at him

"What do you mean" he looks at his hand and blushes possibly redder than I am. "I'm sorry i-i-i- ill move my hand now" "Thanks for moving your hand um uh" I start stuttering and he chuckles.

"Yea I'm sorry about that but we need to get into our seats the teacher will come so-" he was cut off by an awkward cough behind us. I look to see Mrs. Matthews. Then I notice that I'm still in Four's arms

"Four will u let me walk to my chair now" I say and he realizes that he's holding, me and lets go. I start walking over to an empty desk and see that there's a name scraped into the top I shrug then sit down. Everyone looks at me like I just flashed the teacher or something. Four walks up to me and points to the name engraved on the shiny polished wood. I soon realize it says Four. "What would you like kind sir" once I say this everyone starts to snicker (Mmhmm snickers) Four looks like he's about to explode. It's kind of frightening. Then he does something no one was expecting


" hey four could you um move your hand?" what is she talking about my hand is on her hip and my other hand is on he- OH GOD I'm molesting the new girl on her first day of school not that I'm complaining. I turn fire truck red. I quickly move my hand.

"Thanks for moving that um uh." She starts stuttering and I can't help but chuckle

"Yea I'm sorry for that but we need to get to our seats the teacher will be here so-" I was rudely interrupted by an awkward cough. Tris looks behind us.

"Will you let me go to my seat now" I unwillingly let her go and watch her go to her seat. Well not her seat but MY seat. She going to get it now no one sits in my seat but me .I walks up to her trying to be intimidating and I point to the name I carved into the shinny wood.

"What would you like kind sir" she says in a fake British ascent. Everyone snickers and I fill with rage. She looks slightly frightened. She is so cute and I have to do this just once. I lean down quickly so she can't move away and smash my lips to hers. I'm about to pull away when she does.

"WHAT WAS THST FOR?! UGH! IF YOU WANTED YOUR SEAT BACK YOU COULD HAVE JUST SAID SO!" she gets up and goes to sit by Christina. Chris whispers something in Tris' ear and she blushes. I take my seat but the rest of class is uneventful well at least I think so I couldn't stop thinking about that kiss though it wasn't my first kiss it outranked all of the others. By a long shot wonder why she was so mad girls at this school throw themselves at me. But she is different I like that, a lot. She probably has a boyfriend already. She has to looking like that.

Tris POV

The rest of math and gym were uneventful I'm now walking to the cafitorium,  right once I walk in I hear Will shouting my name from a table full of people. Should I go over there? Yea why not. I start walking when I run into some one. I quickly get up and say sorry

"You better be sorry" he said with a scowl. Wow what a jerk.

"Wow I would say your intimidating but u look like a cute little teddy bear like that kid over there" I say pointing to a kid at Will's table that looks just like him brown eyes and tan.

"I should look like my little brother don't you think, oh you must be the new girl Four groped earlier." At this Four who I didn't notice was behind this mystery kid, blushed. "Since then he's been talking about you and how h-" Four covered the guy’s mouth

"That's enough Zeke" Four said blushing slightly.

"Awww I wanted to hear the rest for that story" I said like a 3 year old.

"Hahaha, maybe ill tell you after school when you're taking me for a ride in your cool car"

"I never agreed to that" I cross my arms

"And you never said no" ugh he has a point

"Fine but if you so much get a crumb in my baby you will never be seen again got it?"

"OOo a feisty girl, Four now I see why you enjoyed being that close" Zeke said and winks. Four and I both turn the same shade of red. I walk away as fast as possible and sit next to Will. Right when I sit down the bell rings. I groan and stand up.

"Tris" Will says. I turn around and he has a big smile.

"What Will?" I ask returning the smile

"I was wondering if you wanted to come over tonight to play some candor or dauntless?" some what?


"It's like truth or dare but there's a twist"

"What kind of twist"

"Come and find out" and with that he walks away. I reach into my pocket and take out my schedule. Ugh chemistry next. I shrug and walk to class I get inside and there's only one seat left. It's next to Four how will I live through this.

"Well looks like I'm the last person to sit by" Four said with a satisfied look.
