Jack yawned tiredly, fingers entertwining with Arcee's.
"A little tired there, Jack?" She laughed out as he rested his head on her shoulder.
He merely grunted, a definate 'yes'.
Arcee laughed again and stood.
"C'mon partner, let's get you to your room."
Jack grumbled under his breath as he was tugged onto his feet. He stumbled after her, still yawning and blinking tiredly.
They entered Jack's room, and Arcee moved as Jack all but jumped into the berth with a happy sigh.
Arcee giggled, but then yelped as he pulled her into the berth as well, hugging her close.
"Nuh-uh. You're staying with me."
Arcee's faceplates heated.
"Jack. C'mon, if someone see's us-"
"Then let them. You've never cared what anyone thinks about you, and I've never cared what anyone thinks about me."
Arcee looked at him in surprise, then laughed lightly. She lay back, head cushioned on Jack's arm.
"Alright, if you're sure."
Jack grinned, holding her close.
She gave a hum of agreement, allowing him to hold her to his chest.
Jack yawned as he awoke to giggling.
He looked up, then yelped.
"Miko! Raf! What the heck?!"
"Jack and Arcee, sittin' in a tree! K-I-S-S-Ahh!"
Raf and Arcee both watched in surprise as the teen femme was chased by Jack.
The chase went on for a good half hour before Jack realized...No one else was in base.
"Where is everyone?"
Raf came forward.
"On recon. They found a big energon vein, and so they went ahead, they decided to let you and Arcee sleep."
Jack gave an 'ah', then went to the 'bridge controls.
"Let's go join them then, shall we?"
Energon vein sight
The first thing they saw when they exited the 'bridge was the other 'bots.
With vehicon's holding their blasters to their heads threateningly.
"Guys!" Jack exclaimed, he, Arcee, Miko and Raf all running forward.
Blasters turned onto them as well, and Megatron strode forward, smirking.
"Ah, Jack, glad to see you finally decided to join us."
Jack growled, taking a stance.
"What do you want, Megatron?"
Jack watched the 'con cautiously as he laughed.
"Must you really ask? I've seen your memory files, Jack, your past. Do you really think that a killer like you should be among the Autobots?"
Jack stiffened, remaining silent.
"You hold much potential, it's wasted on these pitiful Autobots. Join me, and together we can destroy all humans! Together, we can recreate this weak planet into a new Cybertron!"
Jack's optics narrowed.
Everything was silent as everyone looked at Jack. The teen mech was tense.
"Let's get one thing straight."
He then darted forward, blade clashing with Megatron's.
"I will never be a 'con!"
The battle started. The 'bots fighting off the vehicons as Jack and Megatron began a deadly dance.
"I might've killed my father, but that was then, when I knew nothing about death! I thought I was a monster after that! But my friends showed me I was wrong! The day I decide to condem others to death is the day I'm a real killer like YOU! I've made my decision! I made it a long time ago! I will never join you! My loyalty is with the Autobots! With my FAMIY!"
"Then you have sealed your fate."
Blades clashed in a whirlwind of flashing metal. Neither was backing down.
Jack's optics narrowed with determination. He'd come so far, he wasn't going to die now! He had his family, had Arcee, and had the truth about himself.
He couldn't, no, wouldn't die now!
Jack gave one last cry of determination, and his blade sunk into Megatron's thick metal hide, piercing his spark.
Megatron was still, wide opticed for a long moment. He then fell.
Jack quickly jumped away, avoiding being landed on as Megatron's optics flickered off.
Jack vented heavily, staring at the warlord's corpse, before he turned to look back at the other Cybertronians, 'bot and 'con alike.
He then took a deep breath, and spoke in a loud, clear voice.
"Megatron is offline. This pointless war shouldn't go on any longer! If you want to keep fighting, destroying eachother, then so be it! But I know I'm not going to be any part of it."
He turned to the 'bridge and began walking (or rather limping, having sustained some injuries) towards it.
The other 'bots quickly followed, Miko and Raf helping him keep steady.
3 weeks later
Jack sighed as he hugged Arcee close.
It had been three weeks since he had killed Megatron, three weeks since the war had ended. The peace was nice, admittedly. It also gave Jack and Arcee plenty of 'alone time' together.
"What're you thinking about?"
Jack looekd down at 'Cee.
"Hm, just everything that's happened recently. I mean, a war that's been going on for thousands of years is done! It's kinda amazing."
Arcee smirked slightly.
"I thought you said we were out here so you could focus on me?"
Jack chuckled, lightly kissing her.
"Alright, alright. Jeesh, someone's impatient."
Finally done! Yaaaay! Thanks for reading! Sorry that it's so short, but I really just wanted to finish!
