Alexandrya Avenhas quoted2 years ago
The factions have divided us, but now we will be united. Now, and forever.”

I'll say it one last time: Be brave
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
Life damages us, every one. We can't escape that damage.
But now, I am also learning this: We can be mended. We mend each other.

The moments that don't suck,” she says. “The trick is to notice them when they come around

That's it. I can't avoid this, I can't back out now, not when I still remember her smile as she climbed the Ferris wheel with me, or the hard set of her jaw as she faced fear after fear in the simulations

Yes,” I say. “I think Tris would want me to try it at least once.”
Saying her name still gives me a little twinge of pain, a pinch that lets me know her memory is still dear to me
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.
That is the sort of bravery I must have now

It reminds me that no embrace will ever feel the same again, because no one will ever be like her again, because she's gone.

The person you became with her is worth being,” she says. “If you swallow that serum, you'll never be able to find your way back to him.”
The tears come again, like when I saw Tris's body, and this time, pain comes with them, hot and sharp in my chest.
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
I'm lost in muffled grief again, this time not just for Tris, but for Uriah, whose smile is burned into my memory. My friend's brother, and then my friend, too, though not for long enough to let his humor work its way into me, not for long enough.

. I grind the heels of my hands into my eyes like I can push my tears back into my skull. No crying, I chastise myself. If I let a little of the emotion out, all of it will come out, and it will never end
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
Still, I do look at him, wondering if I can see some of her in his face, still hungry for her even now that I know she's gone.
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
I am terrified and I don't even know of what, because I have lost everything already.
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
But when I do I feel all the strength go out of me, and I fall to my knees beside the table and I think I cry, then, or at least I want to, and everything inside me screams for just one more kiss, one more word, one more glance, one more.

Christina sniffles and sobs. I squeeze Tris's hand, praying that if I do it hard enough, I will send life back into her body and she will flush with color and wake up
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
She lies on a table, and for a moment I think she's just sleeping, and when I touch her, she will wake up and smile at me and press a kiss to my mouth
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last
marti leonhas quoted3 months ago
WHEN HER BODY first hit the net, all I registered was a gray blur. I pulled her across it and her hand was small, but warm, and then she stood before me, short and thin and plain and in all ways unremarkable – except that she had jumped first. The Stiff had jumped first.
Even I didn't jump first.
Her eyes were so stern, so insistent.

All I can do is stand still – I feel like if I just stand still, I can stop it from being true, I can pretend that everything is all right. Christina hunches over, unable to support her own grief, and Cara embraces her, and all I'm doing is standing still
