We believe in defending those who cannot defend themselves.
Ah, ok, so I just imagined the drunk Caroline I saw walking around there? Good to know that I’m still able to have that kind of imagination.
Maybe you were the drunk one.
No, we wouldn’t freak out. We would FIGHT. I don’t want to know how they would have reacted if someone HAD been hurt.
Fighting isn’t always the answer, Jackson.
Things never get better around here, Caroline. They either get worse orslightly less worse and right now it looks like things are at their worse.
Maybe you’re right. Can I tell you something? You’re basically the only girl friend I have, and I need to talk.
You’re asking me?
You must have an opinion, no?
Yeah, yeah — I mean — she was worried, about me, mostly. She was afraid I was in the labs but Caroline.. Why? I thought, you know, finally this was all over and it just feels like it’s starting all over again.
I had a feeling it was going to get worse. I just didn’t know when or how… They’ve been putting more and more of us out on patrol lately. Even some of us that are still training are being shoved out there. Maybe it has to get worse before it gets better?
I’d never be surprised by what you would be able to miss… especially in the state you were in last night.
I wasn’t in a “state”.
I guess I just hope they’ll find another way to solve this…
Nothing’s going to be solved if people aren’t going to cooperate with each other.
They did it during the bonfire. And from the way Erudite is freaking out you would think half of them got killed, but it seems none of them are actually hurt.
If someone did something like this to Dauntless, we’d all be freaking out too, Jackson. Thank god nobody got hurt.
I guess there was an explosion…destroyed some Erudite labs and research facilities…?
Why would someone want to do that?
Usually, I can answer that question but right now — I don’t have a fucking clue. Which, you can imagine is as annoying as it sounds.
I’m sure it’s hard for you to not know the answer to something. Are you okay, though? Is your sister?
