Summary: An Autobot who betrayed Optimus Prime and her best friend shows up again, being hunted by those who she conspired with, The Decepticons. For what purpose, only Sam and Mikaela can wonder.
It was only weeks later since Spitfire, Elita One and many of the other Autobots had returned to Optimus Prime and the others. They had had quite the excitement over those weeks, including the situation with the boy, Rex Rory.
It had been apparent that he had run away from home in Alabama to help Ultra Magnus find Optimus and the Autobots. They had quite the adventure while on the road and it was revealed that Teletraan had been picking up Magnus' signature the entire time. And he hadn't been the only one. According to the largest Autobot out of the entire lot, Nemesis Strika, a very dangerous Decepticon femme was on Earth and had been tracking him. It was revealed that she had an enormous grudge against Ultra Magnus, due to the fact that he nearly offlined her sparkmate, a Decepticon named Oblivion. She hated the Autobot enough to threaten Rex Rory's life, giving Magnus a big reason to keep the boy with him.
Eventually, he was to be returned to his family.
However, things had been a little more serious than everyone had thought. Because Rex had run away from home, the Child Services had been informed and they had intended to take him away from his family and place him into a foster care home.
No one was happy to hear that. Not even Optimus. But they couldn't say anything to make things all right. They actually left that up to Robert Epps to do. He spoke up in defense for Rex and offered his home as Rex's foster home. And with a little help from Optimus talking to Hound and quickly entering Epps' name in the foster care program through Hound's connection to the World Wide Web, Rex was now living happily with Robert and Monique Epps as their foster child. Ratchet and Wheeljack even worked together to create an artificial but rather efficient mechanical arm for the boy so he would have two hands instead of one. The boy swore he was never more happy than he was without the Autobots being in his life.
Especially when he got along very well with Elena Lincoln. There was definitely some chemistry between the two young human teenagers.
As it was, things did have the Autobots and the humans on edge. The Decepticons were being extremely quiet and there hadn't been a sign of them anywhere. They weren't doing anything and it was making everyone feel very uneasy. They weren't sure what Megatron or Starscream had planned or if they had anything planned at all. They had been lying low and it was making everyone a little uneasy.
Eventually, right after Elita One had given Optimus Prime the Matrix of Leadership back, it was revealed that there was very little Decepticon activity going on in Mexico.
So not wanting to take the chance, Optimus arranged for Ultra Magnus to lead a small team of Autobots down to Mexico to observe what was going on. Spitfire, however, was one of them to go with him. She and Bumblebee wasn't too happy about that but as long as she came back to him all right, they were fine with it. So far, they hadn't found any of the Decepticons, other than some of the Seekers flying over head. But they never had to engage with them. So the Autobot squad was to stay in Mexico until they knew what the Decepticons were up to. The only answers they had gotten were that Megatron was still trying to recover from his nearly yearlong stasis lock.
Along with that, the Matrix of Leadership was starting to vibrate a little, announcing only to Optimus Prime that there may have been a newly created All Spark somewhere on Earth. It seemed that when the All Spark had been destroyed, it had refused to be completely distinguished. By the looks of it, the All Spark was starting to reform somewhere in the Eastern part of the world. He was trying to look into it, but it wasn't something that was easily found. So he was mostly having Jetfire doing a worldwide search to see if he could find any All Spark energy at all. He wasn't having much luck with that.
As it was, Sam, Mikaela and Trent were back in school after everything happened. People still couldn't figure out what happened between the two young men. They were scratching their heads, trying to figure out why they were friends now when all they ever did was give each other hell after Mikaela broke up with Trent and went for Sam. It was definitely a mystery that everyone was trying to figure out. But so far, they weren't having much luck. And not everyone seemed to care. Because Trent was starting to hang out with Sam, some of his friends started to and they began to realize that he wasn't all that bad. They actually found him kind of cool. Trent's other friends, mostly the other jocks, weren't ones who didn't find Sam at all acceptable and they tend to give their former football playing star a hard time for deciding to quit football. No one was too happy at all about his choice. But it wasn't like they could demand him to change his mind.
Still, no one knew what was in store for them in the future. The Autobots and their humans were searching for the All Spark energy and were keeping an eye out for the Decepticons. Not to mention, they now had to deal with this new threat called the Department or Sector Three. They were all finding that they had their hands full with situations popping out of nowhere.
If only they could prepare for what would happen next.
It was a Thursday in November when something happened that would change Sam, Mikaela, Trent and even Sideswipe's life.
"Hey, guys!" Trent said, jogging up to Sam and Mikaela as they were talking to a rather uneasy looking Miles Lancaster, who was one of Sam's weird friends. He was very odd to Trent but he didn't mind him because he was friends with Sam. Trent ignored the uneasy look that he got from Miles as he greeted Sam with a fist bump. "How's it?"
Sam and Mikaela both smiled at Trent before shaking their heads. "Same as always, Trent. Just trying to wake up in the morning for school." The pretty dark haired girl told him.
Trent nodded as he glanced at Bumblebee and gave him a smile. He wouldn't say anything to the young Autobot Scout, due to Miles standing next to them. He knew very well that the weird kid didn't know a thing about the Camaro's true nature. He glanced around before shrugging. "Yeah, same here. I can't wait till we're out of this place though. High School is starting to get old." He remarked.
With a shrug, Sam nodded. "Yeah. I know what you mean. But it is our Senior year. I guess we should make the most of it while we still can. It won't be long at all for when we do graduate. Plus who knows how many….." He paused, glancing down at Bumblebee and making a face. "….uh, interruptions we'll have during our last year."
Both Mikaela and Trent made faces as they thought about it, while Miles was clueless as ever. They knew exactly what Sam meant. They weren't too sure what would happen during their last year of high school. If it being the Decepticons or the new human threat from the Department. They were completely confused of what the Department wanted with the Cybertronians; Autobots and Decepticons, seeing that they had also attacked the Decepticon called Nemesis Strika. That was another thing that bothered all of them. They weren't too keen on the idea of more Decepticons arriving on Earth. It was making the Autobots edgier than they already were.
All four of the teens, and the hidden eyes of the Autobot turned to see one of Trent's friends, waving over at the former jock. They merely grimaced though. This particular guy wasn't exactly the best friend that Trent could have.
His name was James Westley and he was definitely a jerk. He had been one of Trent's best friends before he started hanging out with Sam and Mikaela. He definitely didn't approve of Trent's friendship with a total geek but it wasn't like he could do anything about it. He didn't even hide the fact that he disliked Sam. And he definitely hadn't approved the fact that Trent had quit football, even though he had become the new Quarterback. He bragged about it a lot and It sometimes annoyed Trent, more than it did Sam and Mikaela. But they had been friends for a long time and he didn't see why he should let it end. The keyword being yet.
Westley was waving at Trent to walk over as if he needed to talk to him. Trent sighed quietly to himself before glancing over at Sam and Mikaela. "Sorry, guys. I'll see you guys in class." He told them before jogging towards his old friends.
"I really do not like that guy." Sam murmured, shaking his head.
Mikaela gently placed a hand onto his shoulder and shook her head as she gave him a light shake. "I know. But Trent wants to stay friends with him and sooner or later, he's going to see what kind of jerk he really is. We'll just have to wait and see when it happens." She told him.
Sam just nodded as he watched as Trent started talking to Westley before frowning when the new Quarterback started grinning and motioning to somewhere else. He narrowed his eyes, just as Trent had and turned his head to see where he was pointing at. He wasn't too sure, but he believed that Westley was pointing at a girl that was sitting at one of the outdoor tables, sketching in a notebook. She was somewhat facing them, her head coming up now and then. He wasn't sure if she was glancing towards him, Mikaela, Miles and Bumblebee. But there was something familiar about her.
"Hey, Mikaela." Sam murmured, nudging his girlfriend. He nodded towards the brown haired girl at the table, who kept on with her sketch. "Do you know who that is?"
Mikaela frowned as she looked towards the girl before shaking her head. "No. I'm not sure if I do. Well…..she looks familiar. I think she's in my art class. She sits right behind me but I don't know her name." She told him.
"Oh, that?" Miles suddenly perked up as he looked at the girl. "That's the Doughnut girl. She works at Krispy Kreme. I think her name is Denise or Danielle or maybe it was Dawn. I can't remember. I know everyone calls her by her last name. I think it was Adams or something like that. She's really antisocial. She has no friends and I think she's Emo. She's got a bunch of scars all over her arms and everything. She's probably a cutter. She's so weird and spooky."
Sam and Mikaela just frowned as they glanced at him then shared their own glance. "She doesn't look Emo. I thought Emos wore all black and looked extremely depressing. She looks normal to me." Sam remarked before narrowing his eyes. "You know. That name sounds really familiar. I think I've heard it before…"
"Oh, my gawd!" Mikaela suddenly burst out.
The reason being, there was a football flying right through the air towards the girl. It had obviously came from the direction that Westley and Trent was in. It sailed pretty quickly through the air before slamming into the back of the girl's head, causing her to yelp loudly almost as if she was a puppy who just got smacked for no reason. She sat there, stunned and dwindling on the edge of her seat for a few seconds before she fell backwards onto the concrete.
Swearing, Sam quickly withdrew his arm around Mikaela and shoved himself off of Bumblebee, who's radio system was sprouting out several crude songs, no doubt being pointed at Westley, who was laughing his butt off with the rest of the student body in the parking lot. He heard Miles snort with laughter and shot him a look. "Don't you dare laugh, Miles! That was extremely rude! She could be hurt!" He snapped before racing across the parking lot to reach the girl.
Mikaela was shouting several choice words at Westley, who was still laughing. She had given Trent a warning look but she noticed that he wasn't laughing at all. He looked torn between being very uneasy and highly annoyed as he looked at his former best friend. He wasn't sure if he should ignore what Westley had just done or shove him hard and yell at him.
"Hey! Are you okay?" Sam quickly asked as he dropped down beside the girl and placed a hand onto her shoulder.
The girl's eyes snapped wide open as if she was completely shocked that he, Sam Witwicky, was even talking to her. And for a moment, she just laid there before she tried to sit up, only to fall backwards, groaning as her head clearly spun around. Sam quickly placed a hand onto her back, trying to help her sit up. Both he and Mikaela asked the girl if she was okay again, only getting a rather un-nerved look from her.
And that was how they met Dawn Jade Adams, who would catch the Spark of a certain double-blade wielding Autobot by name of Sideswipe.
