Disclaimer: I don't own Divergent.
This story was based off of the song Back to December by Taylor Swift. I added a little change to it though, but, yea.
"Mommy!" I hear my 5 year old daughter, Lorelai yell.
"Are we there yet?"
Lorelai has been asking me that question for the last 3 hours, and every time I reply with, "Almost, be patient for mommy, ok?"
If you're wondering where we are going, we're going back to Dauntless. I haven't been there for 5 years, Lore's age. I left after the devastating ending of my love life.
It's been 2 years since I was initiated into Dauntless. 2 years since my first kiss, my first time, my first job, and 6 months since Tobias' proposal. I accepted!
I've been sitting in our apartment, the one that I share with Tobias on bed rest (His orders) because I've been sick all week. I just took a pregnancy test (Christina's advice), and I waited for 2 suspenseful minutes to find two red lines on the plastic. I've been thinking about ways to break the news to Tobias when he comes home until I notice that it's 6:00, and Tobias comes home everyday promptly at 5:00...unless he has extra work, which today he doesn't, he's supposed to be home ASAP.
I decide to head to the control room to check on him, to see when he's coming home, so I walk through the pit when I hear two voices in a corner, whispering. They sound oddly familiar, but I keep going.
When I reach the control room, I open the door, and I see Zeke trying to delete footage. I decide to ask him where Tobias is, so I say, "Hey, Zeke! Have you seen Four?"
He jumps up, startled, not having noticed that I was there, and awkwardly moves in front of his work. "H-Hi Tris..." He stutters, almost nervously. I move around the control room, looking for Tobias, but I notice Zeke shifting himself around his station...as if he was hiding something from me. I want to see what he doesn't want me to see, but I know he won't tell me if I ask him. I pretend as if I'm looking around and then I quickly push him out of the way to see a sight that I wish I hadn't seen.
I see Tobias and a girl, I can't see her face making out in a random hallway...the hallway that I saw in the Pit! She keeps trying to say something but he keeps silencing her with kisses...something he doe-used to do with me. I stifle a sob. I run out of the room, and to that corner of the Pit, Zeke chasing after me.
"Where are you going? Tris!" That was Uriah. He must have seen me run out of the control room, as he works there.
I just keep running until I make it to the corner and then I stop. I put my back against the wall. I peer around the corner and see Tobias making out with a girl...she has blond hair, and her voice sounds familiar, but I can't make a connection. Then, she says, "Four, I have something to tell you."
"It can wait," He says, kissing her and groping her. I stifle a sob as Zeke tries to pull me away. I resist, I have to know who the girl is. Now, Uriah is listening in as well, helping Zeke to pull me away.
"No, it can't. Four, I'm pregnant." She says. I clutch my stomach, whimpering. They can't hear me.
"What? Marlene, we used protection!" That did it. I feel Uriah stiffen. I let Zeke pull me away this time. I run to ou-his apartment and pack my bags. I wasn't going to live here, humiliated. Uriah runs in after me and clings to me, crying. I hug back and finally letting go, I cry on his shoulder.
"What are we going to do?" Uriah cries.
"Well, I'm leaving."
"No, you can't leave me here with them." Uriah spits in disgust.
"Then pack your bags and come with."
"What? I-I can't. I-My whole life has always been in Dauntless. I can't just leave." He says.
"Suit yourself. I'm going to miss you."
"Ok, I'm coming. I can't live here, everyday thinking about them."
"Alright, go pack your bags and meet me at the train tracks in ten minutes."
Uriah rushes out and I decide to write HIM a note.
You aren't the same Tobias that I decided to get engaged to. I know you are confused right now, but don't pretend. I saw you with Marlene. And I heard everything. I was going to come by and tell you that I'm pregnant, and that you will be a father. But I guess you'll be a father anyway. Good luck.
I can't live here and see you every morning and night anymore. I'm running away. I honestly don't care if that makes me a coward. I thought that we were right for each other. I guess not. I'm pretty stupid for thinking that you would like me anyway.
I don't know if you'll ever see me again. I certainly hope not. Don't expect me to ever talk to you again, or run back to you. I'm not that pathetic.
I take off the beautiful diamond ring that he had bought me and place it by the note. I take the two suitcases and my purse and walk out the door, hoping that I don't run into Tobias. I put my head down and walk to the trains and I don't watch where I'm going and bump into someone. I look up and see who it is. Of course. Of course I run into him.
"Tris? What are you doing? Why do you have those suitcases? Tris!"
I push past Tob-Four, and ignore him and reach the tracks to see Uriah already there. I hear shouts as Four, Zeke and the gang run up behind us. The train whistles and Uriah throws our suitcases in, and we jump, leaving behind our home, friends, our jobs, our love lives, possibly forever.
*End of Flashback*
Since then, Uriah and I have become the biggest stars in the music industry. We moved to LA when we ran away. We were discovered when we went to a club one day, after the kids were born. Yes, KIDS. I'll explain that later. Anyway, we entered a raffle for karaoke, not anticipating that we'd win. We sang "Moves like Jagger" by Maroon5. It turns out that a music producer was there. Joey Sparks. Best in the business. Anyway, he got us started, and we eventually made our way to the top. We called ourselves Fearless. I learned to play the piano and guitar, and dance, and Uri learned the drums and the guitar, and breakdancing, which is pretty damn incredible.
Anyway, the kids. It turned out that I was pregnant with triplets. Two girls, one boy. Lorelai Victoria Prior, Genevieve Natalie Prior, and Tobias James "TJ" Prior. Nobody but me knows the secret behind my son's name. I figured that I should at least have some piece of Four in my kids. And he looks exactly like Four, too. Lorelai has Four's hair, but my icy eyes, and Genevieve is exactly like me. It was all over the news, my kids not having a father, but they never figured out who it was. Since their birth, Uriah has been a father figure to them, but they still call him 'Uncle Uri'.
I never wanted to go back to Dauntless, but we are on a tour, and one stop is Chicago. Luckily, TJ and Genevieve are asleep, so I don't have to deal with triple annoyance. As annoying as they are, my kids are still sweet and the best kids you could ever ask for. They don't pressure me about where/who their 'daddy' is, they are very obedient, but they still know how to have fun. They are definitely my kids. They're Dauntless kids.
Uriah is fast asleep, so I am supposed to wake everyone up in time to jump. I see the landing, so I shake Uriah and the kids awake and say, "Time to Jump!"
We all hold hands and throw ourselves on to the rock filled platform. I am proud to say that my kids landed on their feet like me. But Uriah on the other hand...
I let Uriah jump first, so that one of us could pull them off the net and make sure that they're safe. I send my kids down one by one, and then I jump and crawl off the net. Since we are stars, we make sure that we look like them (Brush our hair, wear perfume and deodorant, straighten our clothes, etc.), and find our bodyguards. We have four bodyguards, and we have two in front, and two behind us at all times.
We're supposed to meet the gang, minus Four and Marlene, at Zeke's apartment. When I left, I kept in contact with Christina, instead of Zeke because he knew about the 'incident'. I don't blame him, but I wish that he'd told me when he found out. We tell the guards to get our bags and put them in our room, then come back. I get a text from Christina, telling me to come in. I hold two of my kids hands, while Uriah holds one, and opens the door for me.
I hear multiple gasps, and "Tris!" and "Uriah!"s.
Zeke has tears swimming in his eyes when he comes to hug Uriah and I. "I missed you guys so much."
Christina starts sobbing "Tris, you look so beautiful! You learned how to do your make up!"
I laugh, "Actually, I have a make up artist." Everyone laughs at that.
"How've you been, Tris?" Will comes up to greet me.
"Better than ever."
Shauna and Lynn come up to hug us. "Where have you guys been? And who are the kids?"
"After we left, we moved to LA, a city in the US, the country we live in. There, you can wear whatever you want, eat whatever you want, and believe whatever you want." Uriah says. They all look shocked.
"And as for the kids, they're mine," I start, "Lorelai Victoria Prior, Genevieve Natalie Prior, and TJ Prior." I gesture to each one in turn.
"Awww! They're soo cute!" Christina gushes. The kids hide behind me, shyly. I usher them in front of me but they hide their faces. I bend down to their level to introduce everyone.
"So this is Uncle Zeke, Auntie Shauna, Auntie Lynn, Uncle Will, and your godmother, Auntie Christina." They all wave when I say their name."
Christina starts to get emotional, "You made ME their godmother? I feel so honored. Thank you, Tris!"
"Well, Uriah is their godfather, so it's obviously not that big of a deal." We all laugh again. Then, I hear Genevieve yawn. "Well, we should get going. I hope you all come to the show!"
We step into the hallway and are greeted by our bodyguards. "Do you guys mind showing us to our room?" Uriah asks. They shake their heads no, so we get going. We are almost there, when I feel a rough hand grab my arm. "Tris?" I stare into the deep blue eyes, that are now starting to water, of my ex-fiancée.
