Chapter 13: All's Right With The World
"Are you ready?" Optimus asked.
Bumblebee nodded. "As ready as I'll ever be boss-bot."
Optimus blinked and pushed away the flash of images and voices that had come at the sound of the word and smiled. "In that case let 'er rip." He stopped and frowned. "Where did that come from?"
"How should I know?" Ratchet snapped. "I just wanna know why I transformed into a…what is this?"
"It's called an ambulance," Bulkhead informed him then his shoulders slumped.
"At least you're not hanging from the ceiling," Prowl snarled.
The Autobots looked up and saw the ninja hanging upside down from the rafters. "You used to do it all the time," Bumblebee said then shut the top of the stasis pod.
Optimus hesitated then pressed a button, releasing the stasis pod and watched as it suddenly disappeared in a flash of light. He sat down and propped his chin guard on his servos.
"What 'er you doing, Prime?" Ratchet grunted as he sat down.
"Thinking," Optimus replied.
"Are you sure you did the right thing?" Prowl asked as he landed soundlessly beside Optimus.
Instead of answering him Optimus looked up at the ninja and asked, "Don't you ever feel that, no matter how perfect your life is, it doesn't feel right?"
"That you were meant for a greater purpose," Prowl said.
"That you were meant to do great things," Ratchet sighed.
"That you were meant to have friends; family even," Bulkhead finished.
"I'm not sure if it was the right thing to do or not," Optimus finally answered, "but for the first time in my life everything just feels…right now. Like I've finally accomplished my purpose in life."
Prowl nodded. "I understand," he said.
They sat in silence for a while before Bulkhead abruptly asked, "So how long until we know whether or not it worked?"
Ratchet was about to answer when suddenly there came the sound of an explosion. As the explosion encompassed the small ship Optimus felt strangely at peace…
All was quiet at the Autobot base which was…unusual to say the least. Optimus was about to go and see what was wrong when suddenly a yellow blur zipped through the room saying, "Hi, boss-bot, bye, boss-bot."
Mere seconds later a gold and black motorcycle came through yelling, "Bumblebee! I'm going to off-line you the second I get my servos on you!"
"Which is exactly why you aren't!" Bumblebee yelled back as he came through again, almost knocking over Ratchet.
"Watch where yer goin!" the medibot yelled.
"What do you mean?" Bulkhead asked as he came in just in time to get by Prowl. The two bots fell to the floor, groaning.
The sound of a crash caught Optimus's attention as did the hollered, "Sorry, boss-bot!"
Optimus groaned and shook his head in exasperation. There were times when he would give anything to get rid of the minibot and yet there were times when he wouldn't.
A/N: So this story is finally over. The last part (it starts with 'all was quiet') that's after they repaired the timeline and everything's been restored. So Bumblebee is now back in his time…and driving everyone there completely nuts. I hope that everybody liked this story and if something doesn't make sense to you please either message me or leave me a signed review and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Hope you enjoyed!
A/N/N: I must receive at least 1 review before starting my next story.
