Believe it or not, I got this idea when reading a novel (I think) called Divergent by Veronica Roth. So, this story isn't all mines, such as beyblade characters, and the opposing team, the Divergents. Before I kick this off, though, here's some background on the Divergent factions:
The Erudite: The intelligent. They quest daily for knowledge, and have become greedy in this quest. For the Choosing Ceremony, their bowl has water.
The Amity: The peaceful. They work outside the city on farms, and will do anything to keep peace reigning strong. They have soil for their bowl.
The Abnegation: The selfless. They will do anything to allow the other factions an easier time. They have slight problems with Erudite. They have gray stones.
The Candor: The honest. They never lie, and always speak their mind. They have glass as their Choosing Ceremony bowl.
The Dauntless: The brave. Dressing in black, the other factions see them as madmen, jumping on trains, but they protect the city. Burning coals are this faction's bowl.
Choosing Ceremony: When they are sixteen, the children of the Divergent world take an aptitude test. This test is designed to tell which faction would be your best choice. The next day, the children line up in alphabetical order and cut their palm, allowing their blood to drip on the faction they choose. These factions are represented by bowls containing certain objects, such as water, soil, stones, glass, or sizzling coals.
Divergent: This means the aptitude results were inconclusive. You have two or more factions still in your favor; this is a dangerous label and, if the person chooses Dauntless and the leaders figure out, can mean death.
Each member will be based off one of these factions; you'll known them when you see them, just by watching what they wear and say. You'll figure this out fast if I do this right. Now, off to the story!
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the above-mentioned information, nor do I own beyblade.
Tala sighed as he printed off the information on their next opposing team. Little was known of the Divergents; he was confident, but that still meant his team would have to think fast.
He grabbed the sheets when they were finally printed and headed back up to their hotel room. He was studying the first sheet when he ran into someone.
His papers went flying; the other person's did too. He looked up and took a sharp breath; this was one of his opponents, Kale.
The girl was dressed in black, with a tattoo of a bird peeking out by her collarbone. She was well-muscled, and the sheet said she had a weird tendency to use trains as a favorite mode of transportation- by jumping on them. They said she was dauntless; he doubted this, as she seemed awfully weak. Her bit beast was a bird like beast called Daringer. She was the captain.
Tala smiled. "Kale, right? Sorry, I wasn't looking where I was walking."
She narrowed reddish eyes at him. "No duh, you idiot. Watch it next time." She scanned the papers and grabbed the ones that were hers; Tala saw his own teams' information on them and grabbed his own, turning around to look at Kale's retreating back. That was rude; but it fit her. She wasn't one to be trifled with, obviously.
The redhead sighed. If that was one of his competition, this would be a decently easy year for the Blitzkrieg boys.
Kai was waiting in line at a local Starbucks meanwhile. They were in Chicago; he hated all the wind that blew daily, basically making taking a walk a very unpleasant experience.
He walked up and ordered his vanilla frappucino and looked around. There were no free tables, but there was one girl in gray clothes with blonde hair who was sitting at a table for two alone. He walked over and asked, "Can I sit here? There are no free tables."
The girl nodded. "I'll just leave, I don't want to be in your way." She made to stand, but Kai shook his head and gestured for her to sit. She smiled and sat down, saying, "Thank you. Anyway, I'm Abby. Who are you?"
Kai looked at her and said, "Kai." Before going back to his coffee and a book on a Kindle Fire.
Abby looked over and said, "Well, I should probably be going now. I'm sorry if I was an inconvenience sitting here. I have training." With that she stood and left.
Kai looked after her and said, "Hm. She was strange. Selfless, like it was a problem she was sitting here. Like the Abnegation in Divergent." He looked down at the glowing screen and muttered, "A little too like them."
He stood and began walking after Abby, wondering if she was basing herself after one of the factions he was reading of. But by the time he was outside, the gray-clad girl was gone.
"Damnit, I really want to know this." With that he shook his head, and said, "It's just a coincidence. Get your head straight, Kai." Then he turned and headed back to the hotel, planning on telling Tala about this and asking the captain's opinion.
At the same time, Spencer was walking outside, arguing with himself. He was going to go crazy thinking of this; he couldn't decide.
"Stupid decisions," he muttered before ramming into a small gal in a red dress. Her blonde hair went flying and he immediately began apologizing, helping her up. "Sorry about that. Are you okay?"
The girl nodded. "I'm sorry. I wasn't looking. I was reading this." She held up a book called Divergent by Veronica Roth.
Spencer smiled. "I have a friend reading that. He's told me all about it, and now I want to read it. Will you tell me about it?"
The girl nodded. "I'm Amy, by the way. I think we may be good friends." Then she walked with Spencer back to the hotel, all the while keeping his attention on him by telling him about the Divergent book.
Finally, they reached the hotel and a girl in black came out. "Amy, where have you been? Training started five minutes ago, Abby and the others are already there! Come on!"
Amy looked down. "I'm sorry Kale. Please don't yell at me! You know I want peace."
Kale sighed. "I know. But you need to be earlier, I was about to hit the streets to find you. Now come on, we have some serious training to do."
Amy nodded and waved good bye to Spencer before following Kale inside.
Spencer suddenly noticed something. "Wait… Amy is peaceful and wears red and yellow? She's like an Amity from that book she was reading." He shrugged. 'Just a coincidence,' he told himself, before heading upstairs and meeting up with his team.
Ian sat down at a table in the library. "Finally, some quiet so I can finish these repairs," he muttered, taking out the blades and beginning to work on the gray one that belonged to his captain.
Before long, though, a female caught his eye. He looked up and followed the brunette as she walked over to the table to his left, sitting down with books about beyblading. He smiled; Tala couldn't get every girl. The smart ones were his.
He looked over and saw she had put down the beyblading book and had a reading book out. Divergent. Kai was reading that; ah, a topic for conversation!
Ian slipped out of the chair and walked over to her, glad he'd grown enough to rest his elbows comfortably on the tables. He did that and said, "hey. I'm Ian. I saw you grab these," he patted the pile of books on beyblade, "And figured we could have something in common."
The girl zipped up a blue coat before looking at him. "Really? I'm actually a beyblader. Participating in this year's Championships, Ian?" She smiled and moved over a little, giving him room to pull up an extra chair. "I'm Emma, by the way."
The two got into a conversation before a phone in Emma's pocket buzzed. She pulled it out and said, "Sorry Ian, I have to go. My captain wants us to train; she's ruthless sometimes. Anyway, I hope I'll see you in the finals!" With that, she grabbed a backpack she'd brought in and began walking toward the door. Ian smiled; Tala couldn't bag everyone, and now he could rub that in.
"And now I have to finish this." He stood and walked back over to his table, again tinkering with the blades and getting the repairs done before heading back to his hotel, planning on warning Tala they had competition and of his potential girlfriend.
(A/N I left Bryan with Candor! Oh that is good… Thanks if you've read this far!)
Bryan looked up as a girl in black pants and a white shirt sat down at his table and said, "Sorry, it's the last seat. I didn't have much choice."
Bryan nodded and went back to his own interest: Divergent.
The girl looked at the book. 'You're reading Divergent? Oh my gosh, I love that book! But some parts seriously lacked. I mean, she kept it up, but some arts just dropped."
Bryan looked at her. "Didn't have to mention that last part. I think it's a good book." Then he returned to the book and never noticed how the girl stood and walked over to a wanted add before returning.
"Can I borrow your phone?"
Bryan looked p. She was looking at him desperately. He sighed and pulled out his phone, handing it to the girl and watching as she dialed and had a conversation about someone.
She smiled and handed him back his phone. "Thanks. You know that phone is inferior to an Android."
Bryan looked at her. "You aren't afraid to speak your mind, are you?"
The girl shrugged. "It's how I was raised. Anyway, I'm Cary." She held out her hand and Bryan shook it, introducing himself.
Cary looked down. "I'm sorry if I insulted you with my opinions."
Bryan shrugged. "I don't mind. It tells me what to do and what not to."
Cary smiled. "Thanks." Then her watch beeped and she said, "Oh crap, I gotta go! Thanks for letting me use your phone, Bryan! Get it switched out!" With that, she ran out of the café and ran like her life depended on it.
Bryan shrugged. "Weird little Candor chick. Se had a watch." Then he returned to his book, leaving himself to get lost before returning to the hotel himself.
Tala looked up as Bryan walked in, putting his book on the counter and saying, "You got the files?"
Tala nodded and handed them each a file. Each opened his and said, "I saw her today!"
Tala looked up. "Seriously? We each saw a member of the Divergents?"
Bryan nodded. "Mine was a weird Candor. He had a watch."
Tala looked at him. "Bryan, don't drag Roth into this, it's coincidence."
Spencer shrugged. "If you say so. Anyway, are we each reading our folder aloud?"
Tala nodded. "I start. I have Kale Dretai; she is 18, is fearless, and has a tendency to…" Tala looked at this. "What the hell. It says she jumps on trains for fun! She's never been arrested. It says she does it daily to get where she wants to go. Her bit beast is a bird called Daringer."
Kai blinked and sighed. "Weirdo. Mine is Abby Sate. She's 17, and always does what's best for others, even if it means bad things for her. She blends into a crowd. Her bit beast is a bear called Haplo."
Ian smiled. "Mine is Emma Kern, age 17. She's a knowledgeable girl, but this has been known to affect other parts of her life. Her bit beast is a dolphin called Gyruta."
Spencer nodded. "I got Amy Tangibe, age 16. She's a caring girl, raised on a farm and seen helping out at clinics and such. Her bit beats is an elephant called Mantaly."
Bryan shrugged. "Mine is Cary Wellstone, age 18. She's smart, but often speaks her mind and can cause fights. Her bit beast is a fox called Fritza."
Tal nodded. "No much, but we can deal with it. These girls may look weak, but they easily defeated any competition, especially Kale. We need to watch out; these girls aren't afraid to show no mercy."
Bryan cracked his knuckles and said, "Then we'll show no mercy back."
Kai shook his head. "Show enough mercy that you win, but don't injure them unless they do it to you. We have to maintain a half-way decent reputation, Bryan."
The lilac haired blader sighed but agreed. Ian smiled and gave everyone their blades and everyone went down to practice only to see…
"Ah, finally. The Blitz Boys. I was wondering if you'd finally wander down here."
Tala glared slightly at Kale as Amy walked up behind her. "Please don't start a fight, Kale. I know you're-"
Kale smacked a hand over her mouth and she hissed, "Don't tell them, it's my secret and no one else knows it besides you and the others!" She removed her hand as Amy nodded vigorously.
Tala smirked. "You're what now, Kale? I'd like to hear that."
Kale called back a blade with gray streaks. Tala again saw a flash of the bird tattoo; he also saw one peak out by her waist line where her shirt didn't cover of a flame circled by fire.
Kale looked at him and said, "Come on girls. I just remembered something I had to do." She walked by Tala as her team followed and said, "Be prepared for anything Tala. I'm not afraid to come after you."
The redhead smirked. "The feeling's mutual, Dauntless."
He saw Kale's eyes flicker with fear and then it was gone. She left, slipping a note into the redhead's hand before leaving.
Tala pulled it out after practice; Kai was out cold and the others had gone down to relax poolside. He read the paper and the scribbled note.
Meet me on the southwest pier at nine, if you have other feelings beside wanting to defeat me.
Kale D., Dauntless
A small flame circled was by it. He felt the symbol had some meaning; maybe he could ask Bryan about it.
'No,' Tala thought. 'I can't tell him. I'll keep it quiet.'
I am going to make this a multi-chapter; hopefully I can pull this off. My first multi chapter failed miserably.
Please review and tell me how I'm doing, it helps me to improve! Try and guess which girl is which factions, I'll congrats you next chap if ya do!
Typing up ch. 2 now, I'll have it up when I get minimum 1 review, everyone. That's my rule; I want one. Not that hard.
