Hey Guys! I am so sorry! I know it has taken me an unacceptable amount of time to update, but I completely lost my computer charger, my computer died, and the chapter hadn't saved, so I had to write it all over again! I just want to give a shout out to all my reveiwers and my faithfuls! Thanks for encouraging me to keep it up! And yes, Guest, Jacob Artist would make a very good Uriah! Now, I present to you, the next chapter!
"Hurry up, slowpoke!" Christina called from ahead of me.
"Well, I'd already be there if it wasn't for these DAMN HEELS you're making me wear!" I shouted back, unceremoniously stumbling over my own two feet. I let out a string of profanities as I braced for the impact for the hard stone floor. I just loved the fact that while most people used falling skills for battling actual evil, I used them to go up against killer heels. So scary.
"Trissy's got a mouth on her!" A deeper voice taunted, and I realized that Chris had already reached Zeke's apartment, and now her and Zeke were standing in the doorway and getting a good laugh at my expense. I sighed, then- probably more unladylike than any other girl in dauntless- I crawled to the door. I didn't care what I looked like, I just couldn't stand to walk in these... these... STILTS anymore! Finally, I reached my two friends' feet, and at that moment, someone else decided to join the welcoming party.
"What are you two do... oh?" Tobias looked down at me, raising a questioning eyebrow. I smiled cheekily at the two guys.
"Would one of you amazingly handsome boys mind carrying me to wherever we're playing?" I asked, batting my eyelashes. Zeke took a step back, hands raised, and Toby rolled his deep blue eyes.
"Fine," he sighed like it was a big deal, but I could tell he was holding back a smile, "I guess I'll take you." I reached my arms up like an infant, and when he bent down, I wrapped them around his neck. He slipped his own under my knees and back, sweeping me up. He carried me against his chest bridal style to a circle in the living room where Uriah, Marlene, Lynn, Shauna, Will, and Lauren were already seated. I let a smug smile grace my lips as Lauren looked at Tobias and my position in confused awe.
"Chris forced me into heels." I answered before any of my friends got the chance to ask. They simply nodded, knowing my feelings towards Chrissy's fashion sense. Toby set me down next to Christina, then plopped down on the other side of me.
"Now that everyone's here, let's get this party STARTED!" Zeke announced, then seated himself in between his girlfriend and his brother, "For the one and only game of tonight's party, we will be playing, drumroll please..." everyone pounded on the ground as he continued, "CANDOR OR DAUNTLESS!" There were whoops and cheers from the group.
"Rules are..." Uriah spoke up, "You don't do a truth or dare, a piece of clothing comes off, and take your shoes and socks off now, 'cause they won't count in the game anyways." With silent thanks to Uri, I did as I was told along with the other players. "Now who's going first?" Will asked.
"I am!" both Uri and Zeke jumped up at the same time.
"My apartment, my rules, little brother." Zeke stuck his tongue out at his younger sibling, who sat down with a scowl. "Hmmm..." Zeke scanned the room for his first victim, and I found myself cringe when his eyes landed on me. "Trissy!" he stroked his chin, as if contemplating my fate, "Truth or Dare?" I bit my lip. I didn't want to seem like a wuss, but I'd heard from Uriah that his brother's dares were ruthless. My eyes flicked around the room, coming to rest on Lauren, who looked as if she knew I would chicken out.
"Dare." my voice was confident.
"Sit on Four's lap for the rest of the game." the words flew out of Zeke's mouth without hesitation.
"Okay." I didn't break eye contact with Lauren as I stood up, then lowered myself into my boyfriend's waiting arms. I wanted so badly to stake my claim right then and there, to feel his lips on mine, but I reminded myself that the game would be worth it. "Uriah, truth or dare?" I asked.
"Dare." he answered confidently, "I am no pansycake!"
"Fine then. Chug an entire bottle of hot sauce."
"Damn you, Prior."
1 hour later
"I dare you to put on a tutu and sing Born This Way in the middle of The Pit." Will smirked at Zeke, obviously expecting him to back down.
"Fine." Zeke stood up, then walked to the door, "Play without me while I'm gone. Uriah, I give you my turn. Will, hurry your ass up. I need a witness." That being said, he, in his underwear, walked out of the door, off to find a costume I assume. Will rolled his eyes at Zeke's dramatic demeanor, but followed.
"Trissy!" Uriah called, snapping my attention back to the game, "Truth or Dare?"
"Uh," I was honestly tired of doing dares after one drinking contest and one human volcano (Drink a soda, then eat some Mentos. Not. Fun.) amongst many others. "Candor." I told him, "but if you call me a pansycake so help me God it will be the last thing you ever do."
"Alrighty then!" Uri raised his hands in mock surrender, "What's your boyfriend's name?" The question took me completely by surprise, and my jaw dropped slightly.
"What if I don't have a boyfriend?" I retorted.
"Really, Tris?" Uri raised an eyebrow, "You came in here with the stupidest smile on your face. You just seem happier tonight. Oh, and you have a hickey. Now answer." The rest of the group snickered, and my face went red. My hand immediately came up to touch the side of my neck where my skin was tender, and I cursed under my breath. I looked down, only to find that I was in nothing but my undergarments. There was no way out of this. That was when an idea formed in my mind.
"Okay, okay, his name is..." I huffed, "Tobias Eaton."
"SO YOU ARE DATING SOMEONE!" Uriah jumped up, holding his hand out to Marlene, "PAY UP, PANSYCAKE!" I heard her grumble something, then she handed him a paper. It looked like a point transaction slip, so that Uriah, apparently, could use some of her points.
"So, who is this Tobias?" Uri turned his attention back to me.
"You've probably never met him, and if you have it would have only been on occasion, like passing in the halls." I answered, glad that the only ex-Candor in the room was on my side.
"What's he like?" Shauna asked curiously, leaning forwards in anticipation of the upcoming information.
"Yeah," I heard a deep voice from slightly above me, "what is he like?"
"Well," I sighed dramatically, "He's handsome, he's protective- even if that part can get annoying at times. He's strong, and brave, but not afraid to tell me how he feels. The one thing I wish he would do was smile more. He used to do it all the time, but I haven't seen it that much here." Toby's arms tightened around me.
"He sounds like one pretty freaking awesome guy." Tobias said, and I looked up at him.
"Yeah," I smiled, "he really is."
"Okay, so-" I was cut off by the door of the apartment swinging open to reveal Zeke still in his underwear, but he now had a tutu on also. Will came in after, and they both sat down, looking at all of us expectantly.
"So," Zeke's mouth grew into a devious smile, "what happened while we were gone?" I opened my mouth to tell him the Tobias lie, but Toby himself cut me off.
"If you were here, you would've known." he said, "but ya missed it, so Tris, move on please." We all fixed him with confused stares. Then, Zeke spoke up yet again.
"I know what Uri asked." he said, "I was the one that told him to in the first place. I just wanna know the answer." My boyfriend looked at me pleadingly, and I could tell he was trying to get me to understand something. Then, I got it. Zeke was his best friend, and he knew.
"Tris is dating someone." Uriah said before I could stop him, "His name is Tobias Eaton. Apparently, he's here, but none of us know him." I covered my face with my hands, then peeked through my fingers only to find Zeke staring at me- and Tobias- mouth agape.
"Zeke." Uri walked over and waved a hand in the older boy's face, "Zeke!" Zeke seemed to snap out of it.
"You-" he began, but without a second thought, I leaped away from Four and tackled Zeke to the ground, effectively cutting off the rest of what he had to say.
"Zeke, I dare you to come into the hall with me." I looked over my shoulder at the rest of the group, "Four, you be a witness. I give Zeke's turn to Mar." Without waiting for an answer, I stood up and walked out of the apartment, dragging Zeke, with Four right behind us. I shut the door behind us, walking next door to Toby's apartment, and going in. The three of us sat down on the couch, Zeke still in a seeming state of shock.
"You... and you!?" Zeke yelled, and I winced a bit. This caused Tobias to wrap a protective arm around my waist, and Zeke's eyes to grow wider. All of a sudden, he sobered up, a knowing expression taking over his features.
"I should have figured it out sooner." He shook his head, "Tris is short for Beatrice, right?"
"Uh, yeah." I said slowly, not really knowing where he was going with this.
"And Bea is also short for Beatrice?" He asked. I gave the same answer, and a cheshire cat smile spread across his face.
"So you're the famous Beatrice that's had Toby over here acting like a lovestruck puppy since he got to Dauntless." he snickered, and I turned around, raising my eyebrows at my boyfriend. Then, he blushed. Tobias Eaton actually blushed.
"Something you want to tell me?" My words only seemed to make him blush harder.
"Ever since he got here, he's been talking about this chick." Zeke piped up, "He said all this girly crap about her eyes, and her hair and stuff. But I will admit, he's stuck it out. He must really love you with the amount of girls he's turned down." I swung a leg over, so I was now sitting on Four's lap, facing him. I looped my arms loosely around his neck.
"You said all those things about me?" I lifted a hand to trail it down his cheek, "You turned down all those girls for me?" I lightly traced his lips.
"I would do anything for you." He spoke against my fingers. At that moment, I completely forgot that Zeke was in the room. Well, to be honest I didn't so much forget as think Screw it, he knows, and not care. I mean, you can't blame me, I just got my boyfriend back after two freaking years.
I moved my mouth so that it just brushed his (and that was all it was meant to be), but he had different ideas. His hands grasped my hips and pulled me closer, deepening the kiss, and it wasn't like I could- or wanted to- stop him. I moved my hands up, pushing my fingers into his hair, and one of his hands slipped under the back of my shirt. It was perfect. Well, until Zeke awkwardly cleared his throat. Toby and I snapped our heads back, startled by the sudden interruption.
"Uhhh..." I scratched the back of my neck, cheeks flaming red.
"Not that that wasn't entertaining," Zeke snorted, "but I think we should probably get back to the others before you two... well, I think you know what I'm getting at." He wiggled his eyebrows suggestively. I heard Tobias grumble something under his breath, but we all got up.
"And Zeke." I said, right as we reached the door, "If you tell anyone, I swear I will get you drunk, then put a giant rainbow tattoo on your back." Zeke rolled his eyes, but nodded. We went back next door to be met with several pairs of questioning eyes, and a Uriah that could've passed as the Joker.
"What did you guys talk about?!" Marlene was the first to speak up.
"What happens in the conveniently placed apartment next door stays in the conveniently placed apartment next door." Zeke flourished his hand for an added effect, and we all sat down in our original spots, ignoring the stares still trained on us.
"So," I broke the silence, "What did we miss?"
1 (more) hour later
"You're afraid of moths" Lynn yelled in disbelief.
"That's my girl," Will said, "tough as cotton balls." This earned a light punch from the girl in question, but Will was laughing too hard to be effected by his girlfriend's blow.
"Alright, gang." Zeke stood up when the laughter died down, "I think it's time to end this game. Time for bed everyone. Who's staying over so we can make arrangements?"
"I am!" everyone chorused back except for Lynn and an extremely drunk Lauren.
"Sorry," Lynn stood up, dragging Lauren with her, "someone should take her home, and I have to be up early anyways." She walked out, Lauren trailing behind like a dog.
"Okay, then!" Zeke clapped his hands, "I say it's a couples night. That means Will and Christina are together, Me and Shauna, Uri and Mar, and the two loners." He winked at us, then continued, "Uri, Marlene, you're here at my place. Chris, Will, Tris, and Four, you guys are next door at Four's place." Without waiting for an answer, Zeke walked into his bedroom along with Shauna.
"Goodnight!" the four of us (Will, Chris, Toby, and I) waved to the remaining couple, then walked next door.
"I call the bedroom!" I yelled at the top of my lungs as soon as we set foot inside.
"Fine." Chrissy huffed, then, her smile turned devilish, "just be prepared to walk out to anything tomorrow." She winked at Will, whose face resembled a tomato.
"We're good with that, as long as we get the bed." Toby said, then he got that look on his face. The one he always got right before he did something stu- I was cut out of my thoughts by Tobias slinging me over his shoulder.
"Chris, Will! Help!" I called to my best friends.
"Sorry," she shrugged, "no can do, chica." Will just snickered. Some friends I thought as we entered the bedroom, Tobias shutting the door, then none too gently, he threw me on the bed. He plopped down next to me, ignoring the glare I fixed him with. He flipped to face me.
"Maybe we should put some pajamas on." He said out of the blue, confusing me. That was when I realized that we'd been so tired, we'd completely forgotten our clothes. I was only in a bra and underwear, and Toby only had boxers on. Heat rushed to my face, and he rolled his eyes, getting up and walking over to his drawers. He found a pair of pajama pants and pulled them on, then got a shirt out.
At first, I thought it was for him, then he tossed it in my direction, coming back to the bed and not bothering with one for himself. I pulled it over my head without hesitation, loving the way his scent wrapped around me like a soft blanket. The both of us crawled under the sheets, and I reached over him, clicking the light off.
We were bathed in shadows, but I still found his arms, and when I did, he wrapped them tightly around me. I returned the embrace, burying my head in the crook of his neck.
"Goodnight, Toby." I murmured, sleep already beginning to drag me down me, "I love you."
"I love you more, Tris." I heard him whisper into my hair. Then, the darkness overtook me.
Okay you guys! How did you like it? I know, it's a filler and not my best, but I've had a case of writer's block. I know where the story's going, I just don't know what to fill it with until I get there. So, because of that, I want you guys all to review or PM me what chapter you want from Four's POV. The one (or two) that get the most votes are the ones I will post! Oh, and I forgot to mention, I posted a new Divergent fanfiction! It's called Welcome Aboard, but only has one chapter so far, and I'm working on the second one! Thank you LegendLover94 (because you have in fact, already read it and were my first faithful from here to review on there)! Until next time, my faithfuls!
