It must have been hours by the time they decided to stop, and it would have been such a peculiar sight to see more than a hundred different vehicles halted in the middle of nowhere in a single file row, with nothing in sight but rocks, dead plants and the occasional structural remains of some building from long ago.
Tents were set up, though it was clear that whoever had thought up the tents was a fan of communal living, for each tent could accomodate up to twenty people; Jace was not having any of it and told everyone and anyone who wasn't in his vehicle or the cat that they could sleep with other people - he assumed that whoever had designed the tents had to be either Abnegation or Amity, either way the glares he received as Cassius and Sasha set up their air mattresses.
[#86fc55 "He's not making any friends."] Cassius mused, as he fluffed another pillow up; standing up to stretch he moved towards Phoenyx [#86fc55 "So am I correct to assume you both have feelings for each other or was sleeping on him in the car last night and other things just an illusion to break my heart."] he was joking of course but there was a hint of seriousness nonetheless.
[#fca1ef "I'm going to go by the food tents and get us some dinner is there anything you guys want?"] [#a1e0fc "I'll come with you, I need to speak the others anyway. We'll be back."] as the siblings left Cassius was relieved he hated whispering which meant he could speak to Phoenyx properly without fear of someone listening in. [#86fc55 "I mean he'll be sleeping closest to the door do you want to move your bed there with Ember?"]
He then moved towards Sasha's own set up and rolled his eyes, locating the air pump he found himself having to pump her mattress up again, she had done a half-assed job and the mattress was only half inflated; Jace was probably the only one who had not wanted to sleep on an air mattress instead choosing to just sleep in a sleeping bag. [#86fc55 "I reckon after this morning you've got a target on your back from that chick and her friends?"]
[Center -On the way to the food tent-]
Jace was broken away from his sister by a group of females who all seemed to have decided to dress in a less than 'appropriate fashion' he listened to them as they called out to him to come join them and there was going to be a party, he didn't entirely ignore their calls but he also found himself wanting to just get dinner and head back to the tend and have an early night sleep. The female from before.... was her name Ophelia? [#040f6c [i this is ridiculous... they should be dressing appropriately and not in the outfits they are wearing are they trying to attract the wrong type of attention or just my attention?]]
Ophelia approached him placing her hands on his arms; he barely heard what she said as she tugged him away from Sasha who had now stopped; arms crossed angered. [#fca1ef "Oi! Let him go!"] she grabbed his free arm and tugged him back in the direction of the food tent. [#040f6c [i Jesus christ]]
He pulled Ophelia off of him and then went back to his sister who hurriedly pulled him into the food tent where a small line was; by the time they had their dinner in containers and were moving back to the tent that Cassius and Phoenyx were in; the group of girls were gone and he was relieved [#fca1ef "I hope to god there's no serum in any of this food."] [#a1e0fc "Just don't touch the bread."] he chuckled as they stepped back into the tent. [#86fc55 "What took you guys so long?"] [#a1e0fc "The line."] Jace chose to 'white' lie; there was no point mentioning the girls..
[#a1e0fc "Fuck why did we have to start in a place with no answers but a million questions."] [#86fc55 "We'll figure it out, we just need to start looking in the right places."] Nyx had been listening while petting as sleeping Ember when she started dozing off. Eventually she had leaned against Jace in her sleep, red hair pulled into a fluffy loose ponytail.
Eveleen stood in a crowd of grey, no memorable faces or features, just grey. She stood at her mother's hip clad in heavy and itchy grey clothes as her Father helped the leaders welcome new initiates to abnegation, needles of serum laid out on the table one for each of them. [+grey "Welcome kind selfless souls. Here is the last choice you will make for yourself alone. Choose to save your selfish past or to forget and only know to live for others. The choice is yours to make."] Her father spoke with a soft but strong voice and tired commanding eyes. He wanted them to choose to forget believing only those who forget their lives in other factions could fully be selfless. But her father never really was selfleselfless for he was greedy and manipulative. He was Erudite, but he stayed in Abnegation for the pride and respect that being a legacy gave him.
The young dully dressed and pale Eveleen watched as each initiate from another faction received the serum and forgot their life, the things and people they loved, forgot all their values and dreams, and would soon learn only for others. Eveleen shivered at the thought, her father walked over and looked down at her with that fake soft smile, [+grey "people like them and our family are the foundation of Abnegation Eveleen. The foundation of Selflessness which in turn is the foundation of Chicago,"] he said before putting a firm hand on her shoulder guiding her to return to their duties of helping the factionless before the sun set.
[center -End of Flashback/Dream-]
Gunshots broke through Phoenyx's dreaming causing her to sit up. She nearly flew forward when the vehicle came to a quick stop, watching Jace get out to see what was going on. Tanks. [#a1e0fc "What do we do?"] Nyx looked out the window and mentally cursed watching divergents flee back to Nashville. [#fca1ef "We stay in this car and we mow however the fuck is in our way down."] [#86fc55 "Are you kidding me? Are you insane?"] [#fca1ef "Watch me."] The redhead raised an eyebrow in surprise; she hadn't seen Sasha showe such guts before. [+firebrick "It can't be Chicago, they are too afraid to leave the security of the gates. What if these are the people who took people from Nashville. We might be able to get answers.
The road seemed endless and with nothing of interest on either side of the roads, Jace and Cassius both started to feel slightly insane from the lack of stimuli; though Cassius was making it a point to keep his mind occupied by playing around with his radio; Jace on the other hand found himself thinking about home and of Emmy.
Jace had listened to Phoenyx's thoughts and considered her words, why hadn't they just taken the serum from Abnegation and gone back to being naive and clueless. He agreed with her that someone or something had caused it; except there was no answers that anyone could think of. [#a1e0fc "Fuck why did we have to start in a place with no answers but a million questions."] [#86fc55 "We'll figure it out, we just need to start looking in the right places."]
[#86fc55 "Come on Emmy if you could leave, would you leave?"] the three sat atop of Dauntless, a single bottle of alcohol sat between them; Emmy's head resting upon Jace; she was a lightweight as they had discovered by her mind was still sharp regardless of the fact she was practically stumbling about the place. [i "I wouldn't leave, where would we go? There's nowhere but here, this place as shitty as it is. Is our world. It's all we have."] [#86fc55 "You're no fun Emmy."] Jace picked up the bottle and took another swig of the strong alcohol, coughing somewhat at the burn left behind by chugging it. [#a1e0fc "I will leave, if I ever get the chance. I'll take what and who I need and make a run for it. I don't care about what's here, this is not the end of our world. This is just the trap and the beginning, once we get out of here we'll be free to do whatever. No factions. No nothing."] [i "You make it sound so easy. Like you've got it all planned."] [#a1e0fc "Maybe I do."]
[Center -End of flashback-]
The sound of guns being fired.. and the sound of cars exploding brought Jace back into reality as the car came skidding to a halt, people were getting out of their vehicles and running back in the direction they had come from, he unbuckled himself and opened the door grabbing one of the people running past [#a1e0fc "What's going on?"] [B "Tanks. Lots of them, hurry. We need to go. We need to run back to Nashville before we all fucking die."] he lost the grip of the person and looked at the people in the car, his sister shut her eyes, and Cassius swore under his breath [#a1e0fc "What do we do?"]
[#fca1ef "We stay in this car and we mow however the fuck is in our way down."] [#86fc55 Are you kidding me? Are you insane?"] [#fca1ef "Watch me."] Jace shut the door as his sister slammed on the gas and drove straight towards whatever was causing the destruction; whilst avoiding those who were fleeing for their lives.
[#86fc55 "Mind explaining what the serum does to the abnegation?"] Nyx realized Cassius was talking to her, clicking her tongue she looked at him in the passenger seat. She had been thinking about the situation and whoever had took those certain people from Nashville. [+firebrick "It's a memory serum, it causes amnesia, memory loss. It works on everyone, Abnegation barely used it though only on people who want to forget."] The redhead explained. With a far off look in her eyes as if she was in a flashback.
[#86fc55 "We should have just stayed in Chicago and risked the bullet."][#a1e0fc "Life doesn't stop because of death, it's constantly fighting it's way through difficulties. I know that this is all so strange but I am sure there's a reason we prepared and a reason we left. We just need to figure out if Nashville is the only place like this or if; like they suggest there's something else going on here."] Phoenyx though back to Abnegation, Dauntless, then Nashville. [+firebrick "I think someone fucked up, made the world like this. And are trying to fix it with experiments like Nashville and Chicago."] She thought aloud while running a hand through her hair.
[center ~Several Hours Later~]
[#86fc55 "Should have brought the alcohol, you're not so tense when you're drinking."] [ "Christ Cassius you seem to want to make an alcoholic out of me."] Nyx smiled slightly in amusement before she noticed Jace looking at her. [#a1e0fc "Tell me what's on your mind? What do you think of all of this, should we have stayed in Chicago? Should we go back or do we just keep going till we get some answers?"] The girl sighed and ran a hand through her hair thoughtfully.
After a moment of thinking her sapphire eyes met Jace's. [+firebrick "I think there's a lot of secrets about our world we don't know. It probably was a good thing for the others to see something was out here, but the truth is our best bet is in Chicago. Whoever is going after people in the cities has waited to come for Chicago. You said Nashville first reached you on the radio years ago. Chicago and Nashville aren't really that far from each other but we have been left untouched. Maybe its because the factions are working for their experiment unlike cities with different methods of dividing people like Nashville's sins. The best thing may be to wash the slate clean in Chicago so we don't end up like Nashville."] It was probably the most those people had ever heard from Phoenyx's mouth.
[#fca1ef "The Abnegation serum? There's such a thing?"] [#a1e0fc "Of course there's such a thing. Every faction has their own special serum, though Erudite is the only lethal one."] His tone was harsh and course, sometimes he forgot that his adopted older sister was oblivious to the faction's secrets. As they started to pull away; Cassius took out his radio and held it to his chest. Jace kept his eyes on the road; they were let out easily enough and soon were back on barren roads with no view but dry, land.
[#86fc55 "Mind explaining what the serum does to the abnegation?"] Cassius had now had a moment to think; perhaps the people who had been taken were like them, special. Outliers in a sick experiment that tore family and people apart; he unscrewed his bottle of water before taking a gulp of the liquid, he had hoped it would help him but instead it made him feel rather ill. [#86fc55 "We should have just stayed in Chicago and risked the bullet."] [#a1e0fc "Life doesn't stop because of death, it's constantly fighting it's way through difficulties. I know that this is all so strange but I am sure there's a reason we prepared and a reason we left. We just need to figure out if Nashville is the only place like this or if; like they suggest there's something else going on here."]
[Center -Several Hours Later-]
Sasha had taken the wheel, she had gotten restless to the point of Jace and her deciding that she should drive so that he could do the thinking; she was intelligent but she wasn't naturally an Erudite, as he shut his eyes and hummed under his breath; Cassius joked [#86fc55 "Should have brought the alcohol, you're not so tense when you're drinking."] [#a1e0fc "Christ Cassius you seem to want to make an alcoholic out of me."] He then turned his attention to Phoenyx. [#a1e0fc "Tell me what's on your mind? What do you think of all of this, should we have stayed in Chicago? Should we go back or do we just keep going till we get some answers?"]
[#86fc55 "I mean the only way to know is to ask but they don't seem like the talking type, they haven't said anything else since we drove into the square, I gather they are waiting for us to settle down? But you make a good point little red. They are missing two groups. What happened here?"] Nyx listened to Cassius carefully, she watch the sins' reaction to the majority of the Chicago people loading into the vehicles.
She want to load into the vehicle and leave like the rest but when Jace and Sasha loaded up she stood by Cassius, waiting for him despite her stomach turning. Her sharp blue eyes stayed alert while she followed Cassius to Zoey. [#86fc55 "It seems unfortunately we will all be leaving; as we would like to explore our options."] [b "Is it because you noticed the missing sins?"] Nyx turned to look at the woman with a blank and unreadable expression while crossing her arms. [#86fc55 "Perhaps, we're just new to exploring."]
[b "Well, you were smart to leave, we were told by..."] The redhead noticed Zoey trembling the slightest bit, causing Nyx to shift on her feet and scan the people around them. [#86fc55 "Look we don't need to know specifics. We just need to know why some of you are missing."] [b "They were taken by the people who went through Melbourne, Atlanta, other places... We've not heard from the people are gone but all we know is that... we're dying, they did something to us once they left, this spray like substance. It's turning people blue and pink and purple and all kinds of thing. They say we're failed experiments."] Cassius thanked Zoey and had started walking, while Phoenyx took an extra moment to look around before jogging to catch up.
Climbing in she closed the door, petting Ember as she analyzed the people from the window. [+firebrick "Honestly I'm starting to want to take our chances with Chicago...we could always just get the abnegation serum,"] she mumbled the last part while leaning back against the seat behind Jace.
[#86fc55 "I mean the only way to know is to ask but they don't seem like the talking type, they haven't said anything else since we drove into the square, I gather they are waiting for us to settle down? But you make a good point little red. They are missing two groups. What happened here?"] Cassius was the second to break away from Jace and Sasha who were still discussing what to do quietly.
Those who had chosen to leave Nashville had already gotten back into their vehicles leaving really just a small group of them standing and waiting to see what would happen next, Cassius watched as Jace and Sasha returned to the vehicle they were in moments ago, the ones who were seemingly staying behind suddenly felt very alone and hastily returned to their own vehicles; it seemed no one was going to stay after all. He approached the female who introduced herself as Zoey. [#86fc55 "It seems unfortunately we will all be leaving; as we would like to explore our options."] [B "Is it because you noticed the missing sins?"] So Sasha had made the right prediction. [#86fc55 "Perhaps, we're just new to exploring."]
[B "Well, you were smart to leave, we were told by..."] Zoey paused he watched her, she was nervous like she was trying to lie; god he was glad he had known Emmy even if she was a frequent and brilliant liar. [#86fc55 "Look we don't need to know specifics. We just need to know why some of you are missing."] [B "They were taken by the people who went through Melbourne, Atlanta, other places... We've not heard from the people are gone but all we know is that... we're dying, they did something to us once they left, this spray like substance. It's turning people blue and pink and purple and all kinds of thing. They say we're failed experiments."] He took the information in, silently thanking Zoey before returning to the vehicles. [#86fc55 "Let's leave, I'll tell you what I know once we're well clear of this city. We may just need to return to Chicago and save the non divergents after all."]
Phoenyx looked over the city as they drove to the square of Nashville. Her bad feeling was getting worse as they stepped out the vehicles. [+firebrick "This place feels off."] Her dark blue eyes scanned the area, it was like the color was drained despite most of the people wearing bright colors. The buildings were crumbling and the little foliage was wilting or dead. It was like everything was drained of life or abandoned.
Nyx voted and walked to the edge of their large groups of divergents, looking around at the city and its people. It didn't look like there was any damage to Nashville's fence, there had to be something inside that caused such destruction. She had listened to the talk about what the citizen's colors represented while she observed the people. [+firebrick "Sasha you listed seven but I only see five colors,"] she commented as she reapproached Sasha and Cassius, Ember in the vehicle.
When Jace approached them she looked at him. [+firebrick "I don't trust this place, my instincts are telling me we should leave. If Sasha is right about the colors then there are two groups missing."]
The city itself was far less advanced than Chicago had been; in fact it looked like someone had gone through the city and dropped explosives everywhere; how some of the taller buildings were still standing was a miracle. An uncomfortable feeling started to grow in the pit of Jace's stomach as the cars were eventually stopped in what seemed to be the city square. [#fca1ef "I don't like the looks of this."] [#86fc55 "This might have been a mistake."] [#a1e0fc "The fact they are dressed in clothing similar to us but in different colours is a little concerning."]
As soon as everyone was out of their vehicles, the divergent leaders from the original city of Chicago immediately convened in the centre of the mass group, using the noise of the collective group to cover up what they were talking about; before a vote was announced [#a1e0fc "All in favour of staying here? All in favour of continuing on?"] it was a rather Amity way of getting things done sure but it was effective as the majority of the Dauntless Divergents all made the decision to leave and to leave the others behind.
It turned out that the colours of the new city they were in symbolised other things, in Chicago there had been the five known Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Eruidite. here it seemed as though they looked and lived for something entirely different.
[#86fc55 "Can anyone figure out what the new colours mean?"] [#fca1ef "From the looks of it, I think they are representing something once known as the deadly sins."] [#86fc55 "Deadly sins what the fuck are you talking about?"] [#fca1ef "Well once, in old societies they believed humans to have fallen to the seven deadly sins. There was lust, gluttony, sloth, wrath, envy, pride and greed."]
Sasha over looked those from Nashville in their strange colours and slowly but surely figured out each of the groups [#fca1ef "Green is Envy, White is Wrath, Purple is Greed and brown might be Gluttony or Pride. I'm not entirely sure seeing as there are only four groups rather than five, I haven't seen anyone remotely wearing a fifth."] [#86fc55 "Over there on the towers. Yellow."] [#fca1ef "I'm guessing might be sloth or lust."]
From the looks of the vote thus far, to Jace it seemed as though the Abnegation and half of the Amity Divergent group were wanting to stay but the rest had voted to leave and continue on to the next city. Jace moved towards his best mate, sister and Phoenyx. [#a1e0fc "So are we leaving or staying here to figure this place out?"]
[#86fc55 "Perhaps you were always meant to have Ember, she's never been that affectionate towards me."] Phoenyx sighed deciding to just excerpt the situation for what it was. Looking down at the cat she tilted her head and pet her, lightly toying with the pet's paws. [i "This is Simon Langley, this is Simon Langley I am from Nashville if you can hear me, then that means you are alive. Please head here. We need you. Chicago, New York are next. The other cities have fallen, we have survivors we need food and medicine. Please. Come."] [#86fc55 "Well he sounded like shit."] [+firebrick "I wonder what he means by Chicago is next. Whats caused these people all this trouble?"] She sighed and watched out the windshield to see the other cars stop. [#a1e0fc
"What the fuck Cass!"] [#86fc55 "They're being stopped up ahead, slow the car down we're about to encounter people."] [#fca1ef "Who could be out here?"] [#a1e0fc
"Doesn't matter we're about to find out."]
Phoenyx was the last out, leaving Ember in the car with the window down so she wouldn't overheat. She had just gotten sight of their situation when the wind picked up above them, some sort of flying contraptions were landing around them. Standing between Cassius and Jace she got ready for a fight, her face emotionless but her eyes full of determination.
A women, she stepped out the machine with her hands up. [#86fc55 "Who are you?"] She wore white, potentially Candor. [b "I'm Zoey, we're from Nashville. Are you the Chicago?"] [#a1e0fc "We are."] [b "Oh thank fuck. Welcome to Nashville."] Nyx Looked back at what they thought was a broken road a head and began to notice the digital aspects now. She watched the others get in, glancing at Zoey, unsure if they could trust the stranger. But Phoenyx got back in the vehicle, lifting Ember by into her arms, giving her the attention she craved. Though Nyx couldn't help the nagging feeling in her gut as they drove on through the fence that had been opened to them.
[#86fc55 "Perhaps you were always meant to have Ember, she's never been that affectionate towards me."] Cassius mused, Jace chuckled under his breath checking in the rearview mirror to see that Ember was sat atop Phoenyx's lap purring and trying to take all of the younger female's attention, before returning his attention to the road ahead.
Sasha continued to tweak the radio until a message was heard. [i "This is Simon Langley, this is Simon Langley I am from Nashville if you can hear me, then that means you are alive. Please head here. We need you. Chicago, New York are next. The other cities have fallen, we have survivors we need food and medicine. Please. Come."] [#86fc55 "Well he sounded like shit."] Cassius turned the volume down before picking up the radio and speaking into it hoping to get a response from the other vehicles; before cursing. Causing Jace to nearly swerve the vehicle altogether. [#a1e0fc "What the fuck Cass!"] [#86fc55 "They're being stopped up ahead, slow the car down we're about to encounter people."] [#fca1ef "Who could be out here?"] Sasha pondered [#a1e0fc "Doesn't matter we're about to find out."]
Each of the cars soon came to a halt, Jace was the first to climb out as other Divergents got out of their own vehicles to see what was going on; as he and Cassius pushed to the very front of the crowd; they realised that the road had been destroyed, there was no way in hell they could drive any further. [#040f6c [i Christ what do we do.... this was not planned nor expected.]] He opened his mouth to speak but the sound of aircraft flying over stunned him and everyone else by looking up as several large almost hovercraft type craft, started to land around the group. The Divergents moved to stand in a close knit group. Jace and Cassius looked at each other with a knowing 'if we have to fight, we fight'.
Emerging from one of the aircraft was a woman in white she had her hands up [#86fc55 "Who are you?"] Cassius asked [b "I'm Zoey, we're from Nashville. Are you the Chicago?"] [#a1e0fc "We are."] [B "Oh thank fuck. Welcome to Nashville."] the woman named Zoey whistled and soon others emerged from the aircraft clothed in green, purple, dark brown and like Zoey in white. Were the other cities also placed in faction groups? Jace didn't get the chance to ask as they were told to get back into their vehicles and the 'broken roads' they thought they saw was in reality a large scale illusion... it was in reality a fence covered in screens... they had arrived in Nashville.
Phoenyx definitely had noticed Jace sitting beside her, her heart had sped up just a little. She'd been ignoring the stairs and whispering while munching on her first burger, but apparently it ticked Cassius off cause he went into big brother mode, causing her lips to slightly curve upward in amusement. To be honest she felt oddly at home despite their situation.
[#a1e0fc "We're about halfway there."] Nyx nodded and was about to take another bite when bright yellow caught her eye. She looked over to see a girl with mousy brown hair dressed brightly with a flower crown, [i [+maroon fuckin Amity]]. The redhead internally groaned, [i "Hey, you're Jace right?"] Dark blue eyes suddenly stuck to the girl with a sharp glare. [#a1e0fc "I am, you are?"] A blush rose to the girl's cheeks, which caused a tick mark to form on Nyx's temple. [i "I'm Ophelia."] [#a1e0fc "Nice to meet you, can I do something for you?"] After the girl, [b Ophelia], was quiet for a moment and Jace had began ignoring her, Nyx clicked her tongue. [+firebrick "Go on then Sunflower"] she said sharply before the girl walked off totally embarrassed.
[#86fc55 "Jeez Jace. So mean you make it sound like you're taken."] [#a1e0fc "I mean."] Nyx finished her burger, and fed Ember another fry. [+firebrick "I'd scare her off anyways,"] she shrugged [+maroon plus, I call dibs]. Red hair was pushed to one side as she surveyed the area.
[#fca1ef "May as well see if we can find anything to listen to, if not does anyone know any songs?"][#86fc55 "Wrong car."] Nyx had sat in the middle seat in the back, being the shortest, with Ember again on her lap. [+firebrick "Cas how did this end up being my cat? I fed her, took her out, and she won't leave my side,"] she said though her tone was not annoyed or angry, just slightly confused.
The three went to where Phoenyx sat, grateful that she had found a spot to sit at. Jace decided to sit next to Phoeynx; between him and her was the kitten who was happily munching on a soggy fry; now that they were all sat down they realised that amongst all of them she was getting the most attention from people. [#86fc55 "Any of you got a problem? Come at me and I'll beat you up. Mind your own business and fucking do what you have to do."] that quickly scared the stiffs who were staring at Phoenyx most.
Sasha on the other hand, like Phoeynx had brought her own food and opened her thermos which contained a simple overnight oatmeal recipe that she usually ate back at home for breakfast anyway. [#a1e0fc "We're about halfway there."] as he sipped on his coffee; he stroked part of the kitten who was still eating and making soft purring noises. Sasha opened her mouth to speak but a new female voice broke the silence and caught Jace's attention. [i "Hey, you're Jace right?"] He looked up; standing there was an Amity dressed Divergent who had a daisy crown atop her head. [#a1e0fc "I am, you are?"] the girl blushed before whispering [i "I'm Ophelia."] [#a1e0fc "Nice to meet you, can I do something for you?"] she seemed taken aback at his harshness.
Watching this both Sasha and Cassius were trying not to choke on their coffee as Jace quickly began to ignore the fumbling Amity Divergent. As she walked away in embarrassment Cassius mused [#86fc55 "Jeez Jace. So mean you make it sound like you're taken."] [#a1e0fc "I mean."] [i [#040f6c So what if I want to sound like I'm taken, saves the hassle and jeez she was awkward.]] he cleared his throat and finished the rest of his doughnut.
Soon everyone was packed up and returned to their vehicles, of which this time Jace decided to drive, thus giving who was driving the night before a break to sleep in the back of the car, Cassius was quick to call shotgun, as they all got settled back into the car; Sasha thought to play around with the vehicle's actual radio. [#fca1ef "May as well see if we can find anything to listen to, if not does anyone know any songs?"] [#86fc55 "Wrong car."] Cassius joked.
[#86fc55 "Oi sleepy heads, the entire group is stopping for bathroom and food break."] Nyx groaned and remained asleep, little Ember on her lap sleeping as well. But not long after, Jace had got up, moving her, which caused her to wake up. Yawning she sat up, rubbing her eyes. Looking around she noticed they had stopped. She lifted Ember into her arms and got out the vehicle, setting Ember down to do her biz, though the cat was already attached to her like glue.
Phoenyx stretched and popped everything before she finally looked around. An old abandoned gas station, the rest was nothiness, and a ton of divergents. After letting herself adjust and wake up for a moment she looked around for Cassius or Jace. Seeing Cassius was with Sasha she opted not to head over to him, so instead she simply gave him a nod as a greeting before picking up Ember and walking over to Jace silently.
She silently observed, feeling eyes on her as she walked, she [b had] made a scene at the ceremony. But the ones who talked the most about her were the Abnegation, some she had known from the neighboring houses. Blowing it of she just followed Jace around quietly, not really needing to do anything.
Nyx then glanced at the kitten in her arms and arched an eyebrow, [+firebrick "How did I end up taking care of this thing?"] Then Jace found some donuts, chocolate glazed with coffee, [#a1e0fc "Whose hungry?"] but Nyx just grabbed some coffee before digging into her duffle bag for one of the containers of food she packed. Claiming one of the outside tables she waved her friends over, [+firebrick Over here,"] she said before setting Ember beside her, giving her one of the horrible soggy fries, that the thing seemed to like. [+firebrick "So how much further?"]
[Center -Several Hours later-]
[#86fc55 "Oi sleepy heads, the entire group is stopping for bathroom and food break."] he shook each of the sleeping inhabitants of the car, he too had managed to sleep a little but Cassius hated sleeping in moving vehicles; as he opened the door; he slid out. They had seemingly found what appeared to be an old decrepit gas station, Divergents from all different factions were out and out stretching their limbs some of them were exchanging introductions and names. Most of the abnegation based divergents had however set up a spread of breakfast foods; had someone managed to bring a stove with them? Cassius mused.
Jace woke to the sensation of hair against his chin, he nearly sneezed before realising it was Phoenyx, her head hidden in the crook of his neck, slowly he moved his arm as to not wake her; rubbing his arm; he positioned phoenyx so she was asleep across the seat. He slipped out of the truck and followed Cassius; saying hello to the others and getting himself something to eat; he soon found himself with the other divergent leaders of their factions, Issac, Chloe, Zeke and Lindsay.
They stood over a map and spoke; they were halfway to Nashville. [#a1e0fc "We've got enough fuel to make it there."] they all nodded in agreement, they were right on track and from the looks of it, any/all of those on bikes who were scouting ahead and behind had determined no one was following them; they had lost the rest of Chicago several hours ago.
