    Leo stood at the helm of the Argo II. He was thinking about Calypso, obviously. He thought about the things he and Aphrodite had talked about a few days ago. Aphrodite slowly led him into the dining hall and then she sat down regally on one of the chairs. "Sit down," She said to him with a smile on her face. As Leo slowly sat down on the edge of one of the chairs, she ran her hand through her long auburn curls. "You know Leo, you and Calypso make a good couple." She looked at him an amused expression on her face. Leo hadn 't been paying attention her and he heard himself say, "Huh? Oh thanks." That was when his brain processed what she had said. "What?"

He raced around the room frantically, collecting his things all while shouting at Elora. The woman sat in bed, pouting, her arms crossed over her naked bosom. “Get the fuck out of my bed, will you?” bellowed Perceval, nearly apoplectic with rage, as he yanked up his trousers and slipped his feet…

    I looked at my ragged blue clothes, knowing that I wasn’t where I belong. Tris and Tobias were leaving, and I wouldn’t be going with. Looking at my sister, I saw how much she could help the world. “Are you guys ready to go?” Tobias walked up with his usual swagger. “I’m not going with you guys.” I began to lie about why I would not come with them.
