Lockdown

I'd been having that same dream for months now. I was running from something, but I didn't know what at first. I wasn't scared, but I couldn't stop until something out of the shadows attacked me. I tried my best to fight it off, but it didn't work. The next thing I knew I was flipped over and at the mercy of another Cybertronian that was black, dark blue, and lime green. I noticed something strange about it: its optics were brown, just like Shadow's.

"Who are you?" I had to ask.

It smirked before answering. "You honestly don't know me? Well, you will in the near future. I'll give you a hint. I know all your moves" it was a femme, "Because you taught them to me and my brothers".

"What?" that didn't make any sense. Who was she and why was she hunting me?

But before I could ask, I was forced out of recharge. Sighing, I put my good hand on my head and realized I was in a cold sweat. Shadow, my beloved spark mate, woke at the same time as I did.

"You okay?" Shadow embraced me.

"Yeah, just that annoying dream again, that's all".

"Lockdown, I really think you should talk to Prowl about this dream. He's good with this sort of thing".

"I don't wanna trouble him. I mean, he just got married two months ago".

Everything okay? It was Camelio, and next to him was his older twin brother, Chamaeleon.

"We're okay, boys. You should go back to recharge" Shadow suggested.

Papa had himself a bad dream. Chamaeleon commented.

"Don't worry about me, boys. You hungry?" I asked.

You bet! They both answered.

"Alright".

I couldn't believe that even at two and a half months, the boys were still communicating telepathically with me and Shadow. I wished that they'd start talking normal soon. But that wouldn't happen for another three stellar cycles. For now, we had to make due with telepathy on the boys' part. Shadow and I fed them their energon and we put them back to recharge.

"I still think you should still go see Prowl. You were partners once, and partners should trust each other".

"It's not that I don't trust him, Shadow, it's just that I don't wanna bother him with my problems. He's got enough issues; seeing as how Aims is gonna have a sparkling here in a few months. I just don't think it'd be right".

"Lockdown…" Shadow saw no point in arguing, "Alright, let's just try to get some sleep, okay?".

I nodded in agreement. "Yeah".

It was always strange to me that whenever I fell asleep holding on to Shadow, that one dream never got to me.

A/N: Yeah I know, it's short. Yes, Prowl and Aimee are having a sparkling here soon. So R/R peeps!
