Hunting Dauntless

By Beprodigy

Humor / Action

Chapter 1

“Wake up Bee, it’s time to go to school!” says my older sister, Charlotte. She is only older than me by ten months but she acts like it’s two years.

“Do I have to? I mean seriously, I’m too tired,” I complain as I get out of bed.

“Yes, you have to. Now, go shower,” she orders, while she pushes me into the bathroom and shoves a towel in my face.
“Ow!” I shout sarcastically, and slam the door shut.

I put on skinny jeans, a tight black crop top that says Dauntless in silver italics, light makeup, and cherry red lipstick. My hair is boy-cut short and l am wearing my black leather combat boots. I pack my gym bag which contains black shorts, white socks, a plain white t-shirt and my black double laced running shoes.

I open my bedroom door with a slam and jump over the railing at the top of the stairs and land on my feet as usual. I grab my Dauntless chocolate muffin and run outside to see if I can grab a ride to go to school with the neighbors: Zeke and Uriah.

Suddenly, I realize that I forgot my back pack. So I run back inside and see it at the top of the stairs. I hop up the stairs two at a time, grab my back pack and jump back down this time all the way to the basement so I can take the short cut, but my mom stops me.

“Bee, why do you always have to jump down the stairs? It is dangerous, sweetie,” she says with a worried expression, so I answer:

“Because it’s really fun and it takes less time than walking down the stairs.” She nods in agreement and says:

“Okay, go ahead and keep doing it then. Just, if you get hurt it’s not my fault.” With that I kiss her cheek tell her if l don’t leave l will be late on the first day of my new school. Actually, it’s everyone’s new school. They (as in the government) thought it would be a good idea to join the all girls school with the all boys school. The name of the new school is a mix of the two others so it is: The school of the Hunting Dauntless. My old school was called Huntress Academy and the all boys school was called Dauntless. The word Dauntless means: Brave, daring and, in other words, awesome. Dauntless is also the name of the town.

I make it to school just as the first bell rings. I get to the office to collect my lock combo and my locker number. I run around a corner and bump into Uriah and I say:

“Sorry Uriah. Can you help me find my locker?”

He just stares at me in surprise as if he forgot that this is no longer an all boys school then remembers l asked him a question.

“Su-” His voice cracks and then he clears his throat and tries again. “Sure Bee.” he looks at the paper in my hand before saying that it is right beside his. His cheeks are red with embarrassment because of the voice crack that he hasn’t had since Seventh grade.

At lunch, I end up sitting at a table with Uriah, Zeke, Four, Will - Christina’s boyfriend - Christina, Tris, Shauna, and Charlotte.

“Hey, do you know what Molly and Peter’s problem is? It’s like they don’t like the fact that the two schools merged,” l whisper to Uriah.

“Yeah. l noticed too. They really look like they hate this,” he replies back in a whisper.

“Okay,” I say, pitching my voice louder so everyone at our table can hear again, “Who at this table hates that the two schools merged?” Nobody raises their hand.

The bell rings.

“Okay, see you in class.” l blow everybody a kiss, pick up my trash and throw it out on the way out of the cafeteria.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...
