On the floor, Eric moans. Still alive, for now. The gunshots gradually stop. My hand is wet. One glimpse of red tells me it's covered in blood-- Eric's. I wipe it off on my pants and try to blink the tears away. My ears ring. "Tris," Tobias says. "You can put the knife down."
“So, the thing we’re all not talking about,” he says. He gestures to me. “You almost died, a sadistic pansycake saved you, and now we’re all waging some serious war with the factionless as allies.”
“Pansycake?” says Christina.
“Dauntless slang.” Lynn smirks. “Supposed to be a huge insult, only no one uses it anymore.”
“Because it’s so offensive,” says Uriah, nodding.
“No. Because it’s so stupid no Dauntless with any sense would speak it, let alone think it. Pansycake. What are you, twelve?”
“And a half,” he says.
"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."
Now there are no reassurances except that where I go because I choose to.
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.

Sexual Content: two main charecters sleep with each other.. and some kissing scenes this book is great except that
Frightening or Intense Scenes: ur mothers face after the drugs wore off
