A choice neither brave nor selfless.

Tobias had been raised to be selfless. He chose to be brave. He was neither.

01.00 Four - Choosing
Selfish Divergent Trilogy

He had never thought of himself as fearful. But he feared his father. He had never thought of himself as selfish. He was selfish enough to walk away.

Not the Dauntless. Not the Abnegation. Not the person he was raised to be.

Holding the knife, he stared at the smooth grey stones of his faction, waiting for his blood, his choice of the life he’d been given. And chose another way.
