Book The Elite

There are no description. You can write Your own!

After a moment Maxon cleared his throat. I know that you are averse to doing the difficult parts of this job, but there are a lot of opportunities here. I think you could do great things. I can tell you see the prince in me now, but that had to come eventually if you were ever going to truly be mine. My eyes held his. I know.more...

I wondered if being a guard gave him a sense of family the way the Selection had done for me. Marlee and Elise found me moments later and dragged me onto the dance floor. As I swayed, trying not to hit anyone, I caught Aspen standing on the edge of the floor, talking with Mom and May. Mom ran her hand over Aspens sleeve, like she was straightening it out, and May was beaming. I could imagine them telling him how handsome he looked in his uniform, how proud his mother must be. He smiled back, and I could see how pleased he was, too. Aspen and I were rarities, a Five and Six pulled out of our monotonous lives and placed in the palace.more...

NO GUARANTEES, MERELY THAT FAINT GLIMMER OF OPTIMISM THAT CHANGE MIGHT COME. IT DOESNT EVEN MATTER AT THIS POINT WHAT THE CHANGE MIGHT BE. THEYRE SO DESPERATE, THEY DONT CARE. THEY DONT EVEN THINK TO ASK. PERHAPS THE KEY IS STAYING CALM WHILE OTHERS PANIC. WALLIS IS SO HATED NOW, HES ALL BUT HANDED THE PRESIDENCY OVER TO ME, AND NOT A SOUL IS COMPLAINING. I SAY NOTHING, DO NOTHING, AND WEAR A PLEASANT SMILE AS EVERYONE AROUND ME SINKS INTO HYSTERICS. ONE GLANCE AT THAT COWARD NEXT TO ME, AND THERES NO DENYING I LOOK BETTER AT A PODIUM OR SHAKING A PRIME MINISTERS HAND. AND WALLIS IS SO DESPERATE TO HAVE SOMEONE THE PEOPLE LOVE ON HIS SIDE, IM PRETTY SURE IT WILL ONLY TAKE TWO OR THREE INCONSPICUOUSLY WORDED DEALS TO HAVE ME RUNNING EVERYTHING. THIS COUNTRY IS MINE.more...

I cant I cant take it anymore. America, help with my coat? He held out his arm, and I jumped up to help him slide his coat down his back. He let it drop behind him and moved to his buttons. I started helping him, but he stopped me, holding my hands in his. Your record for keeping secrets isnt that impressive right now. But this is one that goes to your grave. And mine.more...

IM NOT SURE WHAT ID SAY STEP ONE WAS, AS YOU CANT REALLY FORCE ANOTHER COUNTRY TO TRY AND INVADE OR PUT IDIOTS IN CHARGE OF WHAT ALREADY EXISTS; BUT I CERTAINLY WOULD ENCOURAGE ANY OTHER WOULD-BE LEADERS TO ACQUIRE UNGODLY AMOUNTS OF MONEY BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. A FASCINATION WITH MONEY WOULDNT BE ENOUGH, HOWEVER. YOU MUST POSSESS IT AND BE IN A POSITION TO LORD IT OVER OTHERS. MY LACK OF BACKGROUND IN POLITICS HASNT BEEN AN ISSUE IN GAINING ALLEGIANCE. IN FACT, I WOULD SAY AVOIDING THAT SECTOR ALTOGETHER MAY BE ONE OF MY GREATEST STRENGTHS. NO ONE TRUSTS POLITICIANS, AND WHY WOULD THEY? WALLIS HAS BEEN MAKING EMPTY PROMISES FOR YEARS IN THE HOPES THAT ONE OF THEM MIGHT COME THROUGH, AND THERE ISNT A CHANCE IN HELL ANY OF THEM COULD. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, OFFER THE IDEA OF MORE.more...

Gerad, my sweet baby brother, could study all the science he wanted instead of pushing himself into the arts for which he had no passion. By obtaining a comfy life in a beautiful house, Gregory Illéa had robbed most of the country of its ability to ever attempt to have the very same thing. Maxon said if I wanted to know who he was, all I had to do was ask. Id been afraid to face the possibility of him being this person, but I had to know. If I was meant to make a decision about being a part of the Selection or going home, I needed to know exactly what he was made of. Donning my slippers and robe, I left my room, passing the nameless guard on my way. You all right, miss?more...

We watch, of course. We see what happens here. The riots, the rebels. It seems people are not happy? I wasnt sure what to say. Your Majesty, I dont know if Im the best person to talk to about this. I dont really control anything. Nicoletta took my hands.more...

She should go home like a lady. Mary, some food? They both nodded. And Lucy, do you need to rest? No! she cried, standing tall. I can work. Aspen smiled.

He laughed. So stubborn. Ill miss that. I was quiet for a minute. So its done then? Im out? Maxon thought it over. Im not sure I could stop it now. Isnt that what you wanted? I shook my head.more...

Come on! she yelled, slamming the remote against the couch before pointing it at the television again. Ugh! Is it just me or is she getting worse? I whispered to Marlee. We watched as Celeste hit the remote over and over before giving up and going to change the channel manually.more...
