Okay, I know I have a lot of other stories in progress, but I had to write this one. The plot bunny has been bugging me since I saw the ROTF movie.

I mean if you seriously think about it, Sam dies, talks to the original Primes, and has the Allspark inside of him all with no side effects. It seems really silly to me. I mean, it's alien to humans, it should do something to Sam. I hope that you like the story. Check my comments up at the top for the other chapters. I'll have to explain some things.

Please Read & Review and questions and suggestions are welcome.


Sam swore as dirt and rock exploded on his right and rained down on him. He curled up tighter and closed his eyes as fear made his gut clench. Another shot rushed overhead, and hit the ground about ten feet in front of him. He yelled in fear, leaping to his feet and running as fast as he could away from the heated battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons.

Sam ducked behind another rock as he cursed his luck. This whole week had been bad, starting with the breakup. Mikaela had broken up with him Monday morning. She had told him that he didn't spend enough time with her, instead spending quite a bit of it with the Autobots. Sam had replied back that he was curious about them, and Mikaela had growled that she needed some attention, too. It had eventually escalated into an argument and in a rage Mikaela had stormed out. Sam hadn't seen her since.

In anger, Sam had run outside to Bumblebee, who still stayed with him almost everywhere he went, gotten in the Camaro, and told him to drive. Bumblebee complied and soon they were outside the city racing through the countryside. By that time, Sam had lost the battle with tears and they had started to slip down his face. Sensing Sam's pain, Bumblebee made soft cooing noises with his vocalizer and soon, the human boy had calmed down and was fast asleep.

During the next few days, Sam lost track of where they went. Bumblebee seemed to know he wanted to be alone and only stopped in small towns to let the boy get food. Sam told Bumblebee what had happened, and the mech seemed content to just listen. This morning, they had driven into a desert only to be ambushed by some Decepticons.

By the time Optimus, Ratchet, Ironhide, and a few other Autobots, and the NEST agents had gotten there, Bumblebee had taken quite a beating. The battle heated up quickly and led to where Sam was ducking behind any cover he could find just to stay alive.

The sound of metal on metal rang out behind him and a body soared above him and landed a good twenty-five feet away. Sam watched as the Decepticon stood up and fired shots into what he presumed was the Autobot that had thrown him. The Decepticon finished with what Sam recognized as a self-satisfied look on his face. After spending so much time with the Autobots, Sam had come to learn how to read their facial expressions exceedingly well, along with Lennox and Epps. To Sam's horror the Decepticon looked down at him and gave the Cybertronian equivalent of a gleeful smile. Sam slipped under the mech's reaching hand and started to run again. He gave a yelp as he was grabbed up by another Decepticon.

Sam struggled desperately in the Decepticons grip, but to no avail; the human boy simply wasn't strong enough to break the mech's firm grip. He heard a high pitched keen and his world jerked as a yellow figure slammed into the Decepticon and sent him crashing to the ground. Bumblebee's optics were glowing with bright anger as he crushed the wrist of the hand that held Sam and freed the human. He made a couple static noises as he gently held the boy up so he could see him.

"I'm fine, Bee, just a couple of bruises," Sam reassured his guardian.

Bumblebee smiled softly at the boy and nuzzled him. Sam gave a soft laugh and shooed the mech towards the battle.

"Go help Optimus and the others, Bee. I'll be fine, I promise."

Bumblebee reluctantly set the boy down and went to rejoin the battle. Sam ducked down and slid behind another rock; Sam mused that all the shelter from the battle out here in the desert was a rock or two, and those were quickly being blown away from the intensity of the battle. There was an almighty crash and Sam had to look, desperate to see what was happening.

Ironhide was on the ground with a Decepticon looming over him, ready for the kill. In an explosion of metal, the Decepticon flew backwards only to be replaced by Optimus. The Autobot leader reached down and helped the weapons specialist onto his feet. Ironhide gave a smile and nodded at the Prime in thanks before running back into the fight. Optimus shook his head and chuckled at the black mech then hurried back into the fight.

Sam was so intent on the battle that he didn't hear the Decepticon until it was too late. He spun around to see the Decepticon that had been standing over Ironhide reaching for him. Sam gave a cry as he was picked up roughly.

"Sam!" Optimus cried out.

Sam had his hands free and he desperately tried to remember what Ratchet had taught him. If he could just pull a few wires in the wrist, the hand would be completely immobile and he could get free. The Decepticon gave a growl and said something in Cybertronian, throwing the human boy to the ground. Sam hit the ground hard, pain making his world fuzzy around the edges; it was an effort just to draw in a breath.

"Sam!" a voice yelled, but his pain-filled mind couldn't tell who it was.

He pushed himself up enough to see the Decepticon standing over him. The black and silver mech had his gun pointed down at the human with a leer on his face. There was a flash of yellow to the right of the Decepticon and Sam saw the muzzle of the gun flash brightly.

Sam was consumed by a very bright light, so bright he had to squeeze his eyes closed. There was a huge explosion and Sam found himself screaming as pain shot through his entire body; it felt like his insides were twisting apart. The light was gone and Sam landed on something and blissful darkness carried him away.
