Hi-ho folks! Time for a new story! Please enjoy! :) Disclaimer: I no own TFA. Carol Sumdac belongs to me.

Chapter 1: Escape

It had been fifty earth years since Sari had left Cybertron and went back home to live her life on earth. Things were quiet without her. Optimus was now mangus until Ultra Magnus was fully recovered. And Sentinel wasn't happy about that. Blurr was found by a scavenger out in space and was brought back to Cybertron to see if he was still online. Now, no one knows until further notice.

Prowl was buried the day they returned to Cybertron. Starscream was buried in a nearby graveyard where Decepticons were buried during the war. While Megatron and his remaining troops were in the Iacon prison underground. They were to be tried and executed in the next two hundred stellar cycles.

Ratchet and Arcee were reunited and staying together in Iacon. Omega was sent back to the industry where he was being repaired and would be sent into stasis lock until he was needed again. But that, would come sooner than anyone thought.

Underground Iacon prison

Team Charr had killed every guard in the prison. Strika, leader of Team Charr, walked down a dark hall with Cyclonus and Oil Slick behind her. They reached a huge cell, inside was the Decepticon leader Megatron. His hands were chained above his head, his feet were shackled to the wall. His helm was gone. And replacing it, were wires stuck in his head to keep him paralyzed so he couldn't escape.

"My lord." Strika said and bowed before her leader. He onlined his optics, and slowly lifted his head to look at the femme.

"Strika, how nice to see you again." he greeted the femme. She smirked under her face mask, and pulled out a gun. She shot the energon chains binding him. His hands flew to his sides as he let out a loud sigh of relief. He grabbed the wires in his head, and forcefully yanked them out, energon flowed from his head. Strika kneeled before him, and pulled out his helm and brought it to him. He took it and placed it onto his head.

"Has your team released my team Strika?" he asked.

"Yes my lord, they are aboard my ship right now. The Nemesis is under construction right now. It should be complete in 9 mega cycles when we arrive on earth's moon." she explained as they left the prison.

"Good. Oh, and I need you to retrieve something for me." he said.

"Sir?"

"Starsceam's body."

A group of kids surrounded a girl with tan skin and stick straight ruby red hair that went past her shoulders to her upper back and a pale skinned boy who was trying to punch her.

"Stay still Carol so I can hit you!" he screamed.

"Shut up Henry!" she yelled and kicked him in the leg. He fell to the ground clutching his leg, sobbing silently. Carol huffed out a sigh and placed her fists onto her hips as her bangs covered her eyes.

"That'll teach you to mess with...me..." she trailed off.

"Carol Sumdac! You're in big trouble now!" a teacher yelled, grabbing her orange and yellow jacket, and dragging her to the principle's office.

"Carol, this is the third time this month. Your thirteen years old. Aren't you too old for this?" the old man who was the principle asked as he leaned back into his chair.

"I'm sorry. I just don't like people talking about my parents. I hear jokes about them being dead. It just makes me angry." she explained, her cheeks turning red with mild anger. She felt her face heat up as she spoke, her mind yelling at her to shut up.

"I understand. I'll let you off with a warning this time. But I'm going to call your grandmother about this." he said, picking up the phone on the desk and dialing a number.

"okay." she whispered, and left the room.

Starsceam's body was laid onto a medical berth as Hook pocked and prodded at it. The cold lifeless shell was frightening. Megatron walked into the room holding something glowing.

"His body's ready sir." Hook said, taking a few steps away from Starsceam. Megatron smirked down at the grey lifeless body, and held up an Allspark fragment, and shoved it into Starscream's forehead. Hook came back to the berth, and closed up his forehead so the fragment wouldn't come out again.

The room was silent.

A sound of what seemed like a computer whirring to life enveloped the room, and Starsceam shot up into a sitting position.

"How dare you pathetic ninjas! I will...eh...w-where am I?" he said, looking around.

"It's good to see that you're online once again Starscream." Megatron said. Starscream faced him and glared at him. A sharp electric pain shot through his body as he screamed and fell to the floor.

"What the slag is this...what did you do to me?" he coughed out.

"I had Hook install a stasis cuff programing into your body. You will not disobey me ever again. Your fate lies in my hands now." he said sternly. Starsceam let out a small grunt as he sat up. He raked his claws across his forehead, searching for the fragment.

"Oh don't bother looking for it. It's deep into your processor. Your spark will come back now that the fragment is in your head for good. Once the fragment connects to your CPU, it will automaticly create a new spark, and Hook will remove the fragment. It will be used in necessary." Megatron explained."

"...Fine by me. As long as I'm still alive." Starsceam muttered to himself as he stood up. "Tell me, are we on the Nemesis? It looks different than the way I left it." Starsceam said, looking around noticing that it looked like it did back during the war.

"I had it repaired while I was rusting away in that Primus forsaken prison. Now, I have a job." he said.

"And what would that be?" Starsceam asked.

"There are still many fragments scattered across the earth. Not to mention Miss Sumdac's grandchild." he said.

"Grandchild? How long was I dead?" Starsceam asked jokingly.

"Fifty stellar cycles." he answered. "And I want Sari Sumdac's grandchild in my grasp. She holds something that I want." Megatron said, mostly to himself.

"And what would that be?" Starsceam asked.

"A key. Made by the Allspark."

"Getting into another fight...not a good way to start off your thirteenth birthday Carol." Sari said to her granddaughter. Carol looked at the floor as she sat at the kitchen table.

"But, I suppose that we can put it behind us just this once." she said, coming back to the table with a cake that said 'Happy Birthday Carol!' in red.

"Thanks grandma." she said with a tired smile and took a small piece and ate a small bite of it. Sari smiled at her grandkid. She was her pride and joy. She went into the other room, and came back with a small white box with a red ribbon on it.

"Thanks." Carol said as she opened the box. Inside was a gold key with black designs that seemed to be a native language on it, tied with a black strap.

"This it cool!" Carol said happily as she pulled it on around her neck. But what she wasn't aware of, was that her present had power in it.

"Optimus Magnus sir." Cliffjumper said. "I...It...the Decepticons...they..." Cliffjumper couldn't find the right words to explain what he was trying to say.

"What is it? You can tell me." Optimus said.

"...T-They escaped. And they took Starsceams body with them." he said in a disappointed tone.

"...It's okay. We'll find them. Contact my old team and tell them to come here." Optimus said.

"Yes sir!" Cliffjumper said with a salute, and ran out of the room.

"Your really taking those repair grunts with you back to earth?" came Sentinels voice in the doorway. 'Take an Elite Guard team. They'll actually get the job done." Sentinel snorted.

"I don't need your advice Sentinel. My team and I took down Megatron." Optimus defended.

"Suit yourself. But you better watch your back if you know what's good for you." Sentinel said coldly, and left the room. Optimus glared at the door.

"And I'll be ready for whatever you got for me." he said back, and went back to his work.

This was fun to write while I was writing the escape scene and Starsceam's resurrection. I hope you enjoyed. Read and Review! :)
