Chapter 6: Butterflies!
Hola Twistinians, this chapter will be purely from Tobias’ pov from the events of chapter five.
I know that you all disliked Tris’ behaviour with him, but Tobias will do something that’ll make her realize her mistake.
I was so excited to meet Tris again, because I needed to know if she likes me back the way I do and if I have a chance with her. Whenever I think about her butterflies start to swirl around my stomach. I never get nervous when a girl approaches me, because I run away from them, but Tris is different and I have known it since I flirted with her like it was a natural thing to do. “What have you done to me Tris?” I asked myself before gwtting ready for today and I even wore something nicer than I usually do. I went to the dining hall where some of my friends and Nita were already there. Oh gosh I hate Nita a lot. I started eating a piece of toast, when Eric called me and said: “Hey Four look who I picked up on my way here!” All of is turned around, when I saw, who it was I smiled at her.
“Hey Tris! You are here earlier than I thought!”
“Hi Four! I know that I’m here early on my way out I met your mom, who gave me something for you!”
“Oh thanks Tris for picking the small package for me! It’s very kind of your family to visit my mother after dad’s death.” I said with a smile
“I know that your mom feels lonely, so it’s our duty to spend time with our fellow members.”
“I’m sorry guys, I forgot to introduce Beatrice Prior. As well as the new head leader of Abnegation!” I said with a big smile.
“Hey Tris, I’m Zeke, this my girlfriend Shauna, this is Eric’s girlfriend Lynn, that’s my idotic brother Uriah with his girlfriend Marlene, this is Will, that’s his girlfriend Christina and that’s Nita, she is Christina’s sister. It’s really nice to meet my best buddy Four’s girl!” Zeke said and glared at him.
“Sorry, but I’m not his girl!” She said, but I wished that she would have that she’s my girl.
“Then why were you two messaging eachother at night with many winkies?” Uriah asked while I blushed and started to scratch my neck.
“Oh yeah by the way how did you get my number Four?”
“Your father gave your number to me!” I said truthfully.
“What? How? When?”
“When you were insulting Jeanine and vice versa! He secretely gave it to me.” I said with a wink, so she asked me a question that made me blush, while she winked at me: so did you sleep well Four?”
“No, I couldn’t sleep as someone wished me to have hot dreams. Wasn’t it you Tris?”I said with a big smirk and I realized that Nita was glaring at Tris, while the others found it amusing. So she played along and asked: “oh really did I?”
“Tris why don’t you just sit down next to me?”
“Yes, of course I will sit down next to you!” She said. Tris sat down next to me, rested one of hands on my thigh. I uncomfortably looked at her, while she just smiled at me. When I wasn’t paying attention she went higher and higher till her hand was on my waist. Soon she wandered back down to my thigh while she was stroking me. I would just love to do something more than kissing with her, because she was turning me on while she was stroking me. As soon as someone’s knife fell on the floor, as a reflex I held her hand and someone shrieked. We all looked at Christina who asked: “why are you two holding hands?”
“I got scared so out of reflex I held Four’s hand!” She lied.
“I’m sorry Tris I thought that there was something going on between you both.”
“Why did you think that there’s something going on between us?” Tris cautiously asked her and she answered back: “because Four never flirts with a girl and he always runs away from them!”
“Your assumptions are wrong Christina as I am nothing special, I’m just an Abnegation girl, with Dauntless blood in my veins!”
“What do you mean by that?” Christina asked while we were looking at her with interest, while she sensed a particular stare and that stare was from me.
“She meant to say that she is the daughter of the Dauntless princess and my niece.” Max said while the rest looked of us looked at her with awe.
“So does that mean that Tris is our cousine!” Zeke and Uriah asked at the same time.
“Yeah she is a Pedrad by heart and a Prior by soul.” Max said.
“Tris we should get going as the meeting is gonna start in 5 minutes!” I said, before we both got up. We walked into my office in silence. “So Tris I wanted to ask you, what were you doing with your hand on my thigh?”
“I was stroking your thigh as I know that you want me but you won’t get me!” She said with a smirk playing on her lips.
“How do you know that I want you so badly Tris?”
“I have seen it in your eyes Four, I have felt it when your hand touched mine and when you were holding my hand without leaving it.”
She explained, while looking deeply into my ocean blue eyes.
“Then I cannot do that!” I said, before she could say anything else my lips were already on her, the kiss was giving me a beautiful feeling as well as butterflies in my stomach. I wish that this moment wouldn’t end, but sadly it did. I already miss her lips on mine.
“What did you do?” She angrily asked me and I replied back with an hint of sadness: “I kissed the girl I like and I liked the kiss a lot! I know that you probably hate me!”
“No, I don’t hate you Tobias, I want you too, but we aren’t in the same faction! The possibilities for you to find another girl is high, I can’t take the risk and get my heart broken, because I fell in love with a Dauntless leader.”
“I would never look for another girl, because I have found the one for me!” I said while I scooped her up from the ground, carried her towards the desk, set her down on top of it and I sat down next to her.
“Tris when I first saw you I was spellbounded by your beauty and I wanted to know, who you are. You made me do things I never did before, I flirted with you without any hesitation. You are so brave, determined as well as you have the fire in your eyes that had drawn me towards you.”
“You know what I would love you to do right now?”
“What?” I asked her with confusion written all over me face.
“Kiss me!” She said.
“Gladly!” I answered back and then my lips were on hers again.
Before it could go more heated, she said something that broke my heart: “we should stop Four, before we make a mistake. We should forget about what happened between us! I know it will be akward between us, if we have to work together without having the urge to kiss one another. But I cannot be with you. I’m sorry Tobias, I really am. I really like you, but I cannot be yours!” She said without waiting for me to answer, she ran out of my office, I ran after her, then she was out of my sight. I heard her cry, I went towards the cries of Tris and said: “Tris please calm down. I will do whatever you said even if it breaks my heart. But you have to know that I really like you a lot and I want to see you happy, because whenever you smile my heart beats faster then it usually does. Let’s go eat our lunch and then I will drop you, so that you don’t have to walk home.”
“Thanks Four. Here’s what your mom gave me to give it to you. I took the box from her and put it into my pocket. We went to eat lunch with my friends, we kept ignoring eachother, she said bye to the others and I came with her, we went towards my car and I dropped her home.
My heart was broken into million pieces, but I am determined to not get my heart broken again and I will do it by ignoring her, I will just talk to her when I have to. I won’t flirt with her anymore, I will be stone cold towards her. I want her to realize what she did to me until then I won’t forgive her. I’m a man that never cries but because of her I’m crying like I never have. I wish that I would have never liked her so much that it hurts. My friends were knocking at the door until I opened the door, all of them looked worried excluding Nita, who was quite happy to see me like this.
“What happened Four? You were happy this morning and now you look like a girl, whose heart got broken!” Zeke said and I glared at him while saying: “Tris broke my heart by saying that kissing me was a mistake and we should forget about it!”
“What but I thought that she likes you too, because I saw the way she was turning you on!” Christina said.
“She told me that she likes me, but she said that we cannot be together!” I softly said.
“Why?” Eric asked and Max answered back by saying: “because the love between you and her would be forbidden as she is from another faction. When Tris was younger she told me that she wants to choose Dauntless! But when it was choosing ceremony, she chose Abnegation, because she is trying to save Abnegation from Jeanine.”
“But why?” We all asked him.
“I don’t know the whole story. If you all want to know the truth then you should ask her, but give her some time, because she doesn’t trust anyone that easilly. Oh yeah, Four try to ignore her until she errupts with anger! It’s always entertaining to see her like that, because she always does something that she doesn’t regret at all!”
“What did she do last time when she got angry?”
“She told her brother to choose Erudite!”
“What? Why?” Lynn asked and he replied back: “because she wants to be prepared against Jeanine!”
“This girl is full of mystery and I love to unravel them.” I said to myself, but then realized that my friends heard me, because they were laughing at me.
“I don’t know why, but I hate that girl Tris!” Nita said, I had almost forgotten that she was here too and the others answered back to her: “you are just jealous, because Four likes her and not you!”
“Seriously Nita, she is so nice, I like her even though she got angry at me!” Christina said sweetly.
“How can you like someone, who kinda insulted you?” She exploded and Christina answered back with a sincere voice and finally because of Christina, Nita left: “because I can see the pain in her eyes as well as the regret for not choosing Dauntless! You know what I saw, how sad she was after she broke Four’s heart, it looked like she had broken herself, there were some unsaid tears in her eyes!”
“Wow babe you notice a lot of things!” Will said.
“Yes, because she is a walking talking lie detector!” I said with a small smile, I just love my gang a lot.
After a while we all talked about a plan how to make Tris angry at us all, so that we can find out why she rejected me. Then we all decided to do a sleepover at my place to discuss more about the plan.
End of his pov
