Divergent, the movie, comes out in March 2014. Can’t say there’s much choice food-wise for throwing a party, but hey, hamburgers anyone?
dried apple slices
chicken and peas
In the center of the table is a platter of food I don’t recognize; circular pieces of meat wedges between round bread slices. I pinch one between my fingers, unsure what to make of it.
Four nudges me with his elbow.
“It’s beef,” he says. “Put this on it.” He passes me a small bowl of red sauce.
“You’ve never had a hamburger before?” asks Christina, her eyes wide.
“No,” I say. “Is that what it’s called?”
banana flavoured muffin with walnuts
Dauntless chocolate cake
The dormitory, at least, is quiet. I stare at my plate of food. I just grabbed what looked good to me at the time, and now that I take a closer look, I realize that I chose a plain chicken breast, a scoop of peas, and a piece of brown bread. Abnegation food.
