When I first started writing this a year ago...though it feels like a lifetime ago...I originally had no intention of posting it since it was just a dumb fic (in my opinion) and has a lot of impossiblities/nonsense in it. Offline, I call this my "toy series" and this is actually the fourth one I've written...but haven't ever published/posted. I think this one is the best compared to the other three I've written...and after letting Mrs. OP read the third one I wrote, she helped convince me to post this. So, I'm nervous/scared about posting this...please be gentle...and hopefully enjoy.
Disclaimer: Transformers belongs to Hasbro and not me. Aurora and Angelique however do belong to me.
Chapter 1: When You Wish Upon a Star
Homework over the summer, neither Aurora nor Angelique could believe it. They had planned this summer to be the best one ever, though they weren't sure how yet, but the homework had ruined everything.
"This is so unfair," Aurora protested, "I have to read three books, plus AP Bio crap. It's going to take all summer just to do this."
"Knowing you, you're going to wait until the last moment to do it," Angelique remarked sitting down on the couch in the living room.
"Heh, you know me too well. Oh well, at least mom and dad left us here for the next month while they're vacationing down in Florida."
"It's totally not fair. I hope a hurricane comes."
"Angelique," Aurora responded sternly.
"What? I didn't mean it. Now, how do you want to spend the summer?"
"Staying up late and sleeping in until noon, eating to my stomach's desire, and daydreaming about transformers."
"And Optimus Prime." Angelique added quickly.
"Yes, but not on either a romantic or sexual level."
"It's true. I bet that's all you think about when it comes to Megatron."
Angelique's face turned red, "Is not…okay…so maybe it is…a little."
"Who's the liar now?"
Aurora and Angelique had been huge transformers fans for five years now. They were both sisters, living in the same household, glad to be left alone without their parents. Of course, who wouldn't be? Especially during summer break?
Aurora was seventeen years old. She was of average size being five foot six in height. The girl was thin, in shape, but suffered from a bit of laziness. Her hair fell just below her shoulders, it was a deep brunette color, and naturally straight. Aurora's eyes were brown and she was blessed with perfect vision. She was also a huge fan of the autobots. She owned the Cybertron Optimus Prime, Jetfire, Wing-Saber, Hotshot, Override, and Red Alert toys. Aurora kept the toys safely and neatly on a shelf in her room.
Angelique, however, was sixteen years old. She was considered tall being five foot eight in height. Like her sister, she was slim and in shape as well and also suffered from laziness. Her hair was short as well and fell just below her shoulders. It was dirty blonde and naturally straight as well. Angelique's eyes were hazel and she had perfect vision too. But unlike her sister, Angelique was a huge fan of the decepticons. She owned the Cybertron Megatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Thunderblast, Ransack, and Crumplezone toys. Megatron was her favorite.
"I'm hungry, what do you say I cook us a pizza?" Angelique asked.
"Sure, just don't burn it this time."
Aurora smiled to herself and pulled out her AP Biology book that she had to read: Darwin's Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meaning of Life. She read the first couple pages and then tossed the book aside exclaiming, "That is so boring."
"What's boring?" Angelique called from the kitchen as she put the pizza in the oven.
"My AP Bio book."
"I can imagine, I still think you should've got the sex one, that one would've at least been interesting."
"She was out," Aurora answered referring to the AP Biology teacher, "The perverts these days."
"You better not be referring to me," Angelique stated, "or else you'll get no pizza."
"I wasn't," Aurora said biting back a giggle as she crossed her fingers behind her back.
Angelique returned from the kitchen and sat down in a chair since Aurora had taken over the couch. The girl sighed heavily and stared out the window, "Wouldn't it be awesome if the transformers were real?"
Aurora looked up from staring at her AP Biology book, "Lord, it'd be more than awesome."
"You know, what hurts?"
"Being in love with something that isn't real. Not only is it embarrassing, but I have a feeling that it's a curse and it won't ever go away. Nothing good is going to come out of that," Angelique explained.
"Aw how sweet, a lovesick sap!"
"You sure do know how to ruin a perfectly good moment," Angelique exclaimed pretending to be hurt.
"Don't I? But seriously, I don't think you should worry about it. Fate has its way of working things out."
"Are you saying Megatron and I are—
"No, I'm saying fate will allow you to get over him and move on; that's the way life works," Aurora explained.
Angelique didn't say anything and Aurora started reading her AP Biology book again. Several minutes later, the oven sounded and Angelique got up and took the pizza out of the oven. The two of them ate the pizza in silence. Once finished, Aurora did the dishes and watched as Angelique retired to her room. She sighed knowing her sister was feeling depressed. If only there was something she could do about it.
After finishing the dishes, Aurora went over to the window in the living room and looked out noticing the sun was setting. A single bright star was twinkling in the lavender sky. Aurora leaned her head against the window. Looking up at the star, she concentrated all her energy on it and then whispered, "I wish that the transformers were real…and somehow the decepticons won't kill us for the sake of Angelique." She then glanced back up to the star only to notice it was glowing brighter. A little freaked out, Aurora left the living room and went to her room to use the computer.
Angelique sat in her room reading her comic: Megatron: Origin. She loved the comic because it was all about Megatron and it had very hot pictures of him inside. The girl felt depressed though, not only because she would never have Megatron, but because he would probably kill her if he ever met her. Knowing that hurt as much as not being able to love him. But even if he didn't kill her, the chances of him falling for her were zero. No matter how she looked at it, it seemed as if it just wasn't meant to be. Angelique set her comic aside and went to the bathroom where she took a shower, changed into her pajamas, dried her hair, and then went to bed.
Aurora on the other hand, stayed up a bit later reading transformers fan fiction and watching music videos. She then shut off her computer, put on her pajamas, and went to bed. As she laid in the dark room, she noticed the star in the sky she had wished on shining a ray of light upon her transformers toys. Out of curiosity, Aurora got up and quietly peeked into Angelique's room only to find her decepticon toys engulfed in the same star's light.
Aurora could only go back to bed wondering.
Yeah, not much of a first chapter...I can't promise that the second chapter will be much in length either...but bear with me. Now...nice reviews would be great...please?
