Being the youngest and the only girl, I think everyone was so worried about me being a brat that they went in the exact opposite direction of treating me like Cinderella. I’d slap my brother on the arm, and he’d throw me down the stairs. I was always like, `Can we talk about excessive force, please?’
It will be difficult to break the habits of thinking Abnegation instilled in me, like tugging a single thread from a complex work of embroidery. But I will find new h a b i t s, new t h o u g h t s, new r u l e s. I will become something else.
