Hey guys! This is a homework assignment we have been working on for a while in class. I hope you enjoy it. It is kind of a speaking tour of Divergent.
Wouldn’t it be electrifying if you could time travel into the future? Well my friends, today I am going to do just that! Get ready to join me in the futuristic fantasy world of Divergent (futuristic Chicago). WARNING: Repetitive jumping may occur.
First, we must enter the city on the elevated sky trains that zip people through the city at lightning pace. Most lead to the Dauntless compound which is our first destination. By the way, you are going to have to jump to get on the train, so shape up and be ready! Rinnngggg! Do you hear it? Those are the blasting whistles of the train. It’s coming and it’s coming fast! Now get ready, jump!
Thud! Now that we are at the Dauntless compound, I know you just jumped, but it seems like we are going to have to jump again. But hey, I warned you! This time, there is a net with give, so you’ll most likely be unharmed. It looks like a trench, but it does end eventually. Alright, it’s time. Ready, set, go!
Another successful jump completed! We should take a peek around the dark, concrete dugout more commonly known as “the Pit”. Here it is: the Chasm. I may sound mental, but I have always wanted to bungee jump towards the crashing rapids in the chasm. Are you with me? Nevermind, I already know you are because we are in Dauntless!
Woo Hoo! I feel like I am on a rollercoaster plummeting towards the cracked sidewalk. The misty spray from the chasm spitting at my back is refreshing. You know, bungee jumping is similar to zip lining in a way: rocketing face first towards a slab of stone waiting to greet you as you meet the ground. Zip lining is totally safe though! I am almost 95% sure that Zeke knows what he’s doing!
Wow! I forgot how breathtaking the view is from the hundredth floor. Reading the look on your face, you are obviously seem uncomfortable with the current situation. I know it seems risky, but all it is is riding in a harness face first towards a flock of cars in the busy streets. No biggie! Okay Zeke, you can strap us in! Here I go! Yolo! I feel like an eagle soaring through the sky. I can see the whole city from here. The lights illuminate the shadowed sky. All I can feel at this moment in space is adrenaline coursing through my veins.
Before we retreat to Amity, I want to check off an item on my bucket list. I have always wanted to go through my fear landscape. Even though it will most likely be a bloodcurdling experience, I want to see how my greatest fears will be presented to me. Hopefully when I go under the simulation, I won’t hear or see anything except for a silent scape of black nothingness.
Now that the cackling swarm of elf on the shelf dolls is over, we can head to Hippieville (more formally known as Amity). We can catch a ride on one of the dirt infested transporting trucks. It should take us to a see of crops and grass. I can’t wait to pluck the blood red and sunshine yellow apples off of the towering trees and bite into their skin with my teeth.
Finally! We’re here! See the trees? They almost stretch for an infinite number of miles. I can practically taste the juice from the apples making my mouth pucker. The only problem is, in order to reach those apples, we are going to have to swing like a pack of crazed apes on vines in order to to get them. Crunch! These apples are making my taste buds hungry for more, but we should go to destination number two: The Bureau of Genetic Welfare. The only problem is that we are going to have to climb the mile high fence. It’s like climbing the Great Wall of China!
Phew! That took a billion years! At least we are here now. Look! It’s the infamous statue. I think that this calls for an end-of-the-day selfie! Say “selfie!” Now that we have crossed off the final item from my bucket list, I think it’s time to head back to 2014. Please come again and remember, the sky trains are always running!
