Mixed-Up 2: Alternate Reality

Chapter 10: Home…Again

Bumblebee was not used to strange things happening. Decepticons attacking he could handle but his friends disappearing without a trace…again? He couldn't deal with that quite so well. He scowled at his knee-joint and heartily cursed his inability to move at the moment. The first day he hadn't moved an inch, afraid of bringing down Ratchet's wrath upon his helm. By the time the second day had rolled around he was worried that he decided to go out and look for them. A task that, sadly, was proving to be easier said than done. So far all he had been able to accomplish was that he had made it two steps before his knee-joint had given out. Now he was on the floor, scooting backwards toward the door. He had no idea how he was going to look for them but figured he would cross that bridge when he came to it. He had almost reached his destination when the door flew open revealing his missing friends. "Bulkhead!" he cried happily.

"Bumblebee!" Bulkhead scooped the yellow minibot up in his massive arms, rocking from side to side.

"I was so worried!" Bumblebee exclaimed. "I didn't think you bots were ever going to come back!"

Ratchet opened his mouth to say something but closed it when he realized that it eerily mirrored something the other Bumblebee had said.

Fortunately Optimus came to the rescue and stepped forward saying, "We would never leave you, Bumblebee, unless we didn't have a choice."

"But," Prowl interjected, "we would still try as hard as possible to get back to you no matter what."

"No matter what," Ratchet repeated.

"I'm never letting you bots out of my sight again," Bumblebee declared as he wrapped his arms tightly around Bulkhead's thick neck.

As Optimus looked around he decided that that was fine by him; just as long as they were home where they belonged.

A/N: 5 reviews.

A/N/N: Sorry it's so short. The prologue to Unstable Experiments will be up on Sunday.

A/N/N/N: If anyone was wondering, no the other Bumblebee and his friends didn't forgive each other quite as easily as I made it seem. They were kind of putting on a little show for my Optimus. But they do eventually forgive each other.
