Summary: Sam finds that there are some very awkward side-effects of his contact with the AllSpark.
Rating: T for language and suggestiveness
Pairings: Implied Sam/Mikaela/Bumblebee in chapter One if you blink, strongly suggested Sam/Mikaela/Bumblebee from Chapter 4. Some may see some of these interactions as 'slashy'.

Sam was feeling really ill.
It had started out as a really nice day. Sam and Mikaela had gone out to town together, in Bumblebee, to look for a new sound system for Sam in the electrical store.
Sam's old sound system had packed up, and his father had given him some money towards getting him another one. He had picked up Michaela on the way, as someone to help him pick one up, and, of course, to give her another Bumblebee-fix.
Mikaela had become rather fond of Bumblebee, was so attached to him, indeed, that had Bumblebee been a human male, Sam might have been inclined to feel jealous.
However, Bumblebee wasn't a human, but a car-well, he was a car when he wasn't in disguise. In his other form, Bumblebee was a sixteen-foot robot who hadn't even originated on the planet Earth, and would, if called upon, protect Sam - and probably Mikaela too- with his life!
Sam also knew that Bumblebee was fond of Mikaela. Having fought together the way they had in Mission city, a strong bond, of the sort that existed between two warriors who had fought together, had been forged between the two humans and the Cybertronian sworn to protect them.
As a consequence, Sam could not begrudge Bumblebee the affection that Mikaela lavished on him: on the contrary, Sam would often join in!
However, Sam currently didn't feel like doing anything more than lying down, or barfing, or wishing he was dead, and not necessarily in that order.
It had come on very suddenly, while they were looking around the electrical store. One moment he was feeling fine, and the next, he was shaking, sweating, feeling like he was about to lose his breakfast, and his vision was swimming. His heartbeat and breathing had speeded up, and he was feeling, to be frank "like shit" as he told Mikaela at the time. She had put her hand to his forehead, and he had relished the coolness of it, whereas she was concerned, for he was burning up with fever.
OOo oOo oOo oOo oOo oOo oOo oOo oOo oOo oOo
The Essence knew that the Vessel-the only Vessel its original Vessel was in physical contact with at the time that would survive it's touch-was inadequate to contain its energy. It knew that the old Vessel had to be destroyed to stop its power being used for evil purposes, and had had no other option.
It had not realised at the time that the energy it was constantly generating and trying to store in this new organic Vessel could destroy it. There only other available Vessel was another organic being like the current one, and it, too, would not be up to the task. It could hold off the energy, perhaps, long enough to get back to one of the essence's own children, but the idea of using one of it's own children in that way was abhorrent to it.
Besides, although the new Vessel had destroyed the old, it seemed a poor way to repay it for giving it a form to hide in by killing it.
The Essence did the only thing it could do, as the storage of its energy was causing the Vessel's systems to malfunction.
It discharged all the energy at once.

As Sam's knees abruptly buckled, Mikaela caught him, supporting his weight as best as she could. The thought ran through her head, 'Something is badly wrong, I have to get him to Bumblebee!' The staff of the electrical store they were in had also noticed, and were moving in their direction. Sam jerked his head up to look at Mikaela, and she could not help but gasp.
Sam's face was dripping with sweat and flushed with fever, but this was not the reason for Mikaela's gasp. It was the change in Sam's eyes that provoked that reaction. Sam's warm brown eyes were no longer brown, but a startling, almost luminous, electric blue. A deeper blue had replaced the normal black circle of his pupil, and even the whites of his eyes were a muted, brilliant blue, as if lit by neon signs from within.
All of a sudden, Sam's entire body gave a jerk, a single convulsion, his head and arms thrown out by the reaction, his back arched. His whole body became outlined by an electric blue aura. It didn't hurt Mikaela, where her skin contacted him, but it did tingle oddly.
Then a crackling noise was heard, not loud but quite distinct. Multiple small blots of lightning sprung first from him to her, sending her hair flying up as she, too, was enveloped by the eerie blue aura, sending her hair flying out from her head wildly. Her whole body tingled from head to toe but still there as no pain. Warmth, yes, but not pain.
Then the blue lightnings erupted from both of them, to hit the equipment on display on the shelves and on the shop floor. From these items, the lightning also jumped, a chain reaction of lightnings jumping from the humans to the nearby machines, from the nearby machines to further machines, until the lightning had reached every mechanism in the shops, including the tills and the mobiles and wristwatches of everyone in the store. All this took about two seconds to occur.
Mikaela noticed that the moment that the discharge of energy began, that Sam's eyes seemed to start draining of the eerie blue. By the time it had finished, his eyes were back to their normal shade of brown.
However, by then, all Hell was breaking loose.
