Disclaimer: I don't own Divergent, I'm just a fangirl.
Snip. I cut the tape and carry the box full of old school projects to the other side of my room where 4 other boxes lay. About a hundred more to go.
My dad is off somewhere doing god knows what. I wonder if he'll even say goodbye to me, or if he'll just let me go off, on my own. Do I even want to say bye?
I open another box and take it over to my desk as I begin packing things into into it. That is, until I hear a knock on my door.
I turn to face him, a smile spreading to my ears. "You know the door is open right? You don't have to knock."
He shrugs. "Just being polite."
He gazes around my room, eyes landing on the many empty boxes that I have yet to fill with my things. His gaze falls back on me and stays there for a few seconds.
I blush, I can't help it. The look he sends me is so intense, but sweet at the same time.
He stuffs his hands in his pockets. "You look like you could use a break."
I lean back onto my desk. "I could."
He grins. "Great. I have a place in mind."
I raise my eyebrows. "Oh, so you're taking me somewhere, Eaton."
"That I am Prior."
I get out the car, and look at the breath taking view before me. There are couples sitting on the grass, snuggling as they wait for the sunset. I see some even with food. There's a set of picnic tables in the trees. The only one that's occupied has a family of 6. Two little boys run around as their mother tries to wipe the food off their faces.
I see Tobias pull out a Subway bag from his trunk.
I laugh. "You shouldn't have."
He falls into step with me as we look for a place to sit. "Why not? You seem like the Subway kind of girl."
I shrug. "I am, I just meant you shouldn't buy it for me."
He stops and turns to face me. "Oh really? Why's that?"
I look down, shrugging. Guys don't buy sandwiches for me. "I'm not special, I guess."
He laughs. "Tris. It's just a sandwich and some chips." We continue walking. "And besides, you're special to me."
Cue the blushing.
We pick a secluded area near the trees to watch the sun set. He reaches in the bag and hands me a sandwich. I rip the paper off and begin eating, not caring what kind it is. A sandwich is a sandwich.
The sky begins to turn purple, a layer of orange underneath. The clouds look like fluffy cotton candy, pink and all.
"I'm really going to miss you." Tobias tells me as I finish off my sandwich.
I awkwardly smile. "I will too. You've been a great best friend. You changed me somehow. I will never forget this summer, I promise you that."
He picks a flower from the grass and places it in my hair. He leans in closer to me. "That's the thing Tris. I don't want to be just your best friend. I don't want to be your boyfriend either. I want to be someone who'll be there for you when you need it. I want to be someone who you can talk to anything about. I want to be that person who you make great memories with, who you laugh with, who you cry with. And some make-out sessions along the way... ah, I'm not complaining."
He presses something into my hand before I can respond. I look down. It's a letter. I stare back up at him. His face is just millimeters away. We're breathing the same air now. "Promise me you won't open this until you get to Peoria." He requests.
"I promise." My voice is soft, and cracking. Am I crying?
I look back out at the sunset, the purples and oranges mixing together is positively beautiful. I feel my face being tugged back and lips touch mine. I slowly kiss back, but my kisses get more certain as we continue. I have a feeling this one isn't friendly. I feel his tongue run along my lower lip. I open my mouth for him and our tongues mingle together. He puts his hand on my lower back and mine go around his neck. I am two bodies, two mouths, two tongues.
When we break apart for air I look him in the eyes, and I finally see the change in him too. He is no longer the boy who invited me to his party on a dare. He is someone who genuinely cares about people. He is a compassionate person.
I see the change in me too. This Summer is everything that I wanted yet nothing that I planned. This Summer changed me. And as he puts his arm around me and guides me back to his car in the pure moonlight, I realize that while the Summer may be coming to an end, we sure aren't.
Hope that wasn't too cheesey. I already have like the first 2 chapters of the sequel mapped out. Spoiler: takes place 8 or 9 years after this. That's all I'm letting you in on. Okay, thank you so much guys like seriously. You guys have shown so much support and it honestly overwhelms me how many times my day got 100 times better because of any one of you who has said such kind words to me.
