"Got that gun?" Peter says to Tobias.
"No," says Tobias, "I figured I would shoot the bullets out of my nostrils, so I left it upstairs."
"Oh, shut up."
Grief is not as heavy as guilt, but it takes more away from you.
"Sleep," he says. "I'll fight the bad dreams off if they come to get you."
"My bare hands, obviously."
"one lie can change everything"
Now there are no reassurances except that where I go because I choose to.
"We all have war inside of us."
When I walk back into Tobias's room, Uriah is sprawled across the bed facedown; Christina is holding the blue sculpture above Tobias's desk, examining it; and Lynn is poised above Uriah with a pillow, a wicked grin creeping across her face. Lynn smacks Uriah hard in the back of the head, Christina says, "Hey Tris!" and Uriah cries, "Ow! How on earth do you make a PILLOW hurt, Lynn?"
This is wrong. It's wrong to forget who I have become, and to let him kiss me when I know what I am about to do. But I want to. Oh, I want to.
"You would be fine." I don't look at him. I stare at his t-shirt between my fingers and the black ink curling around his neck, but I don't look at his face. "Not at first. But you would move on, and do what you have to." He wraps an arm around my waist and pulls me against him. "That's a lie." he says, before he kisses me again.
"You're too important to just... die." He shakes his head. He won't even look at me- his eyes keep shifting across my face, to the wall behind me or the ceiling above me, to everything but me. I am too stunned to be angry.
"I'm not important. Everyone will do just fine without me." I say.
"Who cares about everyone? What about me?"
