Divergent High

Chapter 5

Tris POV

The smoke was overwhelming, setting into my lungs and making me cough harshly. But that didn't stop me. I crouched next to the school wall and looked around at the ground, for anything that could help me break in. Nothing on the ground. Next I tried to find a door somewhere. If thos was the field side, there should be a door around... There! Quietly I walked through, not taking notice of it being unlocked.

I flew forward, so surprised I couldn't even use my arms to help the fall. A horrible pain sparked in my ribs. But apparently that wasn't it. From behind came soldiers dressed in white and blue, swarming around me, taking ropes out to tie me up. As they rolled me over, the pain in my ribs exploded and that was the last straw. I kicked out, screaming, forgetting about the pain. I think out of the corner of my eye I saw Tobias through the crowd. Was he holding a knife? I could never be sure because at that moment they put a cloth to my face. It's intense stench was enough to make me drift away into unconscious.

Tobias POV
