She's Like the Wind: part one
I've heard that the flames of one romance can often ignite the sparks of another. That when people are around someone who is in love, then the possibility of them falling in love themselves increases. To be honest, I had no idea weather this was true or not, but at the time I will admit that I was very deep in the emotion my self. So deep that it seems that I was completely oblivious to the fact that I wasn't the only one around who had strong feelings for a transformer. You see, I had just gotten to the point where I was willing to admit my feelings for none other than Optimus Prime himself. While I was in the process of doing that, my best friend Alyssa had proceeded to fall for someone on her own. I had been holding out for my hero and had found him. She on the other hand had wanted some thing completely and utterly different. She'd found it to. All that she had been looking for had been presented to her in the most unlikely package.
I first noticed it the morning Optimus gave me my engagement gift. The two of us wandered back into the living room and found her on the couch snuggled up in the arms of a certain engineer. We really did try to do the best we could to get back into my room with out waking them up. The other four guys however had been standing in the door way of the kitchen and had gotten a good how at the expense of my self and Optimus, so they proceeded to head back into the room being just plain loud. Alyssa gave a startled little jump and then it dawned on her where she was. Hence she started squirming to get loose and that woke Wheeljack up. It then occurred to him what had happened and he proceeded to release her while his panels on the sides of his head, started truing from the normal blue to a very bright shade of red. Alyssa scurried off in the direction of the kitchen and Wheeljack proceeded to compose him self. The other four pounced on the game cube again and Optimus and I just stood there for a second and stared.
Optimus blinked and proceeded to ask me, "Did I just see what I think I saw?"
I nodded back, "Yah I pretty sure you did."
"You don't think....?" He trailed off.
I looked over at the engineer and promptly shrugged, "So what if they are? Their both adults aren't they?"
"I suppose you have a point, it's just... well I mean Wheeljack he's not..."
"The romantic type," I finished. "Neither is she, Lets just wait and see what happens now shall we?"
He nodded again, "What if they are Angel?"
"Well so what if they are? I mean it's no stranger than you and me is it?"
"No I don't guess it is," He paused and thought for a second, "In fact considering what you told me about her, I think we should have seen this coming."
"Oh I did," I grinned for a few seconds and then got serious, "You don't think the two of them are gonna have the same problem as us do you?"
"Well I certainly hope not, but if they are all we can do is trying and help them come to the same choice as us."
I nodded at him, that answer made me happy, for some reason I thought he'd be against another relationship like the one we had. Though considering he's the one that came after me, I shouldn't have been so shocked.
"Okay then," I told him, "You go talk to blinky bot over there and I'm gonna go find out what's up with Alyssa."
The commander of the autobots nodded at me and proceeded to head off to have a conversation with his friend. Meanwhile I took it upon my self to wonder into the kitchen and see what was going on with the more organic end of the couple.
"So what's up?" I asked as I plopped down at the table.
"Uhh... not a whole lot," She answered, "Just getting breakfast ready ya know?"
"Well don't cook too much, its just me and you that's gonna be eating."
"Yah, I know," She grinned at me "Wheeljack told me that if they stay here for a while they will put a power converter in here, they brought one."
I grinned, "Soooo... that means they'd be running off outlets?"
"Basically," She grinned back.
"I'm glad to see you so happy," I casually began, "The two of us don't smile nearly enough."
"Oh I can imagine that's gonna change for you, you've had that goofy "I'm smitten" grin plastered on your face since we found you two out at the barn, making out."
Now I blushed, "We were not making out! It was just a kiss..."
"A kiss can go a long, long way Angel," She grinned then it suddenly fell, "At least you can kiss him..."
"Well you know, prime's mask is removable, maybe...."
She literally shook her self, "Maybe what?" And then she proceeded to go into her, "If I ignore it, it'll go away act", I let out a sigh and tried again.
"Ya know, it's possible that Optimus and I aren't the only human/ autobot couple. There could be others," then I deliberately added the next part, "Provided some one else out there had feelings for an autobot."
She shook her head at me, "Angel, you have no idea how happy I am that you and Optimus have decided to try and make your love work. But I think you two need to accept the fact that you're one in a million. There's no more chances for another couple like you two to come about."
"Really," I reached for a piece of toast, "Could'a fooled me."
While I was trying to get something out of Alyssa, Prime was in the living room trying to reason with Wheeljack over the clamor of the four guys that had high-jacked my game cube.
"What are you talking about?"
"You heard me Wheeljack," The leader grinned, "I think you have a thing for Alyssa."
"You're..." Once again the panels on the sides of his head started to turn bright red.
"Alright fine!" he grouched, "So what if I do like her? I mean it's not like any thing is ever gonna come of it."
"I can't believe I'm hearing this out of you Wheeljack," He sighed, "Your one of the people that convinced me to come out here and look for Angel. Now you're saying it's not possible for a human and an autobot to be in love?"
Wheeljack stopped at that one and then looked down at the floor. When he looked back up to meet Optimus' optics his own were full of a set of confused emotions that offered no solution.
"No Prime, that's not what I'm saying at all." He motioned to the kitchen, "It's very possible for a human and an autobot to have a relationship, its just not possible for me to have a relationship with Alyssa."
"Because, unlike you and Miss Angel, the two of us don't have anything at all in common, I'm nothing like her, I'm way to old for her, and well.." He trailed off for a few seconds, "I'm sure there's a plethora of other reasons that it just wouldn't work no matter how hard I tried to make it."
"That doesn't sound like you Wheeljack."
The engineer sighed, "It may not normally, but where Alyssa is concerned I'm just going to have to accept the fact that there's no possibility of the two of us being more than just friends. Besides, you're working under the assumption that she likes me too. She doesn't."
"How do you know?"
"If she really did like me the way you say then the first thing she did this morning wouldn't have been to try everything in her power to get away from me. She's just acting like its nothing. I know why to, because it is nothing."
Optimums shook his head and looked at his friend, "Wheeljack, I think you're jumping to conclusions here. More over I think you need to see if she really is trying to get away from you, or like Angel, is just scared of what might happen."
"Oh please Prime," Wheeljack snorted, "That girl's not a afraid of any thing, let alone me."
"I think your wrong Wheeljack," Prime stood up and looked down at him, "And I think she's not the only one that's scared. But, like you told me, you'll never know until you come right out and ask her."
The leader gave his friend a squeeze on the shoulder and then headed back to the main room to up date me. Between the things that the two of us found out, it was clear there was something there. Wheeljack and Alyssa had been good friends to both my self and Optimus, now we felt it was time for the two of them to have something of their own. Just like I have often heard love makes people do strange things. I couldn't wait to see what would develop from all of this. The seeds of love for our two friends were planted, now all we had to do wait and see what fruit was borne.
