Octavia looks upwards, looks at the sky and thanks the stars for not taking from her the two most important persons in her life.

She thanks them because she doesn’t know who     what     to thank.

But she remembers her brother telling her about the greek gods and those who have their home among the stars, those who become them. She remembers listening to his voice as he speaks of Andromeda and her mother, Cassiopeia. She remembers being in his arms at night as they wait for sleep to come     in a too much quiet home, alone in the shadows without their mother in the room     as he tries to put suspense in every word of his story about Callisto and the origin of Polaris     even though he has told her that one a hundred times.

She remembers how the gods thanked others by taking them to the stars. She had never really understood why people was so captivated by the stars, but that day, when Bellamy fulfills her dream     her only and biggest dream    , when she sees the stars for the first time, she thinks they deserve every word dedicated to them.

So she decides she’d thank them, because she has no one else to thank.
