    Tris

    Her long, minty pastel green and white tendrils of hair cascaded down her back and over her shoulders, clothed with a white, comfortable baggy sweater that hugged mid arm. A small copper gear necklace hung over her neck, stopping to hang calmly at her chest.
    Below her lip, on either side, were two black studs that seemed to give off more a punk essence to her. Her eyes were surrounded by dark makeup, eyelashes long and full, letting her green eyes seem to sparkle lightly. Her pale skin was flecked with blush, even if her minty hair drifted over on side of her face. Tris was only 5'3", and as she walked in, she felt small and nervous. What was she to do.
