A/N: Hey look I live! Sorry I took so long to update I don't know what happened. This chapter is a little short but it's something and I wanted to post something so I hope you guys enjoy this new chapter! I'll try not to take so long for the next update I promise. I had like half of this chapter in my laptop for 6 months untouched and i don't want to do that again. I am so sorry again I'll stop talking now, have fun :D
Optimus systems began to slowly reboot, each system whirling to life as he came out of stasis. The first thing that hit him was a dull ache running through his body was head to toe, no doubt most of it was numbed by painkillers.
Opening his optics, Optimus tensed and groaned softly, the light of the med bay blinding him momentarily. His optics hadn't been online in a while, first sign that he had to be unconscious for at least a few days. He tried to open his optics again, this time with less irritation as they began to acclimatize.
"Good morning, sleeping beauty!" Suzuki's voice chirred into his audio receptor and he looked over, welcomed by a warm smile "How are you feeling big guy? Everyone's been worried sick about you."
"Dr. Suzuki…I've been in better shape, thank you for asking." Optimus replied sincerely, wincing as his voice felt like gravel in his throat. Though, he perked up, noticing she was standing behind glass and he realized he was in a healing chamber. Taking a better look around he realized he didn't recognize the med bay, much less the room they were on. "Where are we…?"
"New base of operations." Suzuki replied, looking down at the monitor attached to the healing tank to look over his scans. "There was a breach of security, the location of the base may have been compromised so once you were stable everything was moved. I don't know many specific details so I recommend asking your team. This is a military base, still in Nevada, not too far from Jasper actually."
"I understand…" Optimus replied, taking in the information before looking to the door of the healing chamber and he rose his good arm to try to unlock the door. He wanted out.
"You shouldn't do that, Optimus. Your arm is still healing." Suzuki warned him.
"Healing…?" Optimus asked, puzzled before looking at his injured arm. He expected to see a stub from where his arm was severed but was stunned to see what looked like an exoskeleton of an arm attached from his elbow.
"How is this possible…?" His voice barely going up a whisper. He remembered the pain of his arm severing, this obviously was a replacement but their Med Bay didn't have the supplies to repair such a severe injury. Where did this material come from?
Suzuki seemed to notice his confusion and offered him a reassuring smile. "That tech comes from the same tech we used to repair Jaden's spine. We had to tweak a few things for it to be compatible to your systems but essentially we created a biomechanical prosthetic. With a few upgrades and armor added it should work just as fine as your old arm."
"I had no idea you and your team have come this fair with our share of technology…" Optimus replied, raising his arm up and flexing his digits to test it. It still felt numb and very exposed but it worked.
"Transmetal material. It took years to figure it out but the results are astonishing. We figured out a connection between human and Cybertronian DNA. I won't bore you with the details. Essentially we discovered humans have small traces of energon in their DNA. We're unsure why but we used that knowledge to our benefit." Suzuki replied with a smile.
The only explanation Optimus could think of that could explain this link was that the human race has been living on the planet of with a Cybertronian god as its core. Deposits of both energon and dark energon would have been present all their lives. It would only make sense traces of it became present in their very building blocks of life.
"We had to use this for Jack as well to repair his eye." Suzuki added, pulling Optimus from his thoughts. "Unfortunately the damaged caused to it was too much it couldn't be saved."
"But Jack is alright?" Optimus knew he shouldn't worry but he couldn't stop himself from asking. Likely another side effect from their new bond. Either way he is still concerned.
"Yes, he is fine but as far as I know he hasn't woke up yet." Suzuki replied, "The only thing of note really is that he's had spiking brain waves but they've become stable again."
Optimus knew that was their doing but it felt good to hear Jack was physically fine. Looking back down at his new arm, he looked it over, still trying to grasp the technology that made this all possible.
The sound of footsteps caught their attention and both looked up to see Ratchet enter the med bay. The medic was in the middle of reading a data pad before he briefly glanced over to the healing tank, a habit he formed these past few days whether or not he was in there to check on Optimus. He immediately stopped in mid stride when he saw this time Optimus was staring back at him.
"Optimus! You're awake!" Ratchet gasped, rushing over to the tank to quickly look over his scans and sighed in relief when everything looked normal. "Dr. Suzuki, we didn't you inform he was awake? I told you to inform me immediately if there was any change!"
"Just getting him up to speed, he's a little groggy but he should be fine." Dr. Suzuki replied, finding it sweet the grumpy old medic looked like he could finally breath so to speak after waiting so long for Optimus to come to.
"It's good to see you, old friend…" Optimus offered a weak smile and Ratchet gives him a look.
"Don't you EVER do that again." Ratchet hissed and Optimus' smile only grew when he noticed the relief in the medic's optics.
"To tell you the truth I'm not even sure exactly what happened Ratchet…It's all blurred...after the explosion…" Optimus sighed, rubbing his temple as he tried to grasp what happened. Now that he was conscious it was strangely harder for him to remember what occurred.
He remembered feeling a surge of energy coming from his hands when he fought to keep Megatron out of the base. The newfound power was overwhelming but it seemed Megatron had also awakened a power of his own. Megatron's body was engulfed in the purple flames of dark energon, much like when Unicron had taken direct control over him at the core.
That was…problematic. It meant Megatron was desperate enough to return to that state to stop them from escaping.
"You with us, Optimus?" Ratchet asked, gently tapping the glass of the healing chamber.
"Hm?" Optimus hummed, looking down at Ratchet and then to Dr. Suzuki, "I'm fine, just trying to get my bearings again…How are the others? Is Smokescreen alright?" He asked, quickly remembering that Breakdown had torn off one of his door wings. As far as he knew, Smokescreen's injuries were the worse besides his own.
"You've been out of it for a week. Once you were stabled I made sure everyone was patched up." Ratchet replied, "Everyone is safe and accounted for."
"That's good to hear…Anything else to report?"
"Optimus, you just woke up. Give yourself time to heal. I'll give you the team's debriefings to look over later. You're on medical leave until stated otherwise." Ratchet gave him a look, crossing his arms, knowing the Prime would be stubborn. "Use this time to heal and take a step back. And before you argue, the team and I have made sure everything is under control. There have been no signs of the cons yet, think of that as a blessing for now."
"Alright Ratchet." Optimus couldn't help but chuckle weakly, but it trailed off into static.
"Just get some rest. You've certainly earned it."
"I've rested enough…" He replied with a sigh as he leaned his head back against the healing tank.
Optimus allowed the storm in his mind to settle before his senses perked. He sensed Jack was nearby. Not in the same building but on the same base. If he concentrated he could sense his steady breathing, but his mind was active. Searching and wandering through the vast amounts of data within the Matrix and his memories.
Hesitantly, Optimus sent wave through their bond, of curiosity and concern; just to make sure he was alright. He sensed Jack's mind recoil through their bond, still not accustomed to this new sensation but he sent a wave back to Optimus. He reassured that he was fine and not to worry, still Optimus sensed the doubt in Jack's mind and he just knew.
Jack wasn't going to be the same when he wakes up.
Later that day, Wheeljack stood at one end of the courtyard in front of Hangar E, his swords drawn as he faced Cliffjumper. The red autobot had his own pair of swords and examined them curiously before glancing up at Wheeljack a bit puzzled.
"Focus, Cliffjumper." Wheeljack said sternly but not unkindly.
"I still don't see me learning how to use a sharp, pointy objects is going to help me with my anger issues." Cliffjumper sighed, his shoulders sagging. Why bother learning another why to harm his teammates?
"It'll help you to learn control." Wheeljack explained, moving his sword as he adjusted into a stance. "A sword is not the same as a grenade or an energon rifle that involves things blowing up. When you fight with a sword it's an extension of yourself."
"Wouldn't it just be similar to lock me up and throw away the key?" Cliffjumper sighed, avoiding eye contact with Arcee when she gave him a look.
"You need to be able to control yourself to keep your Terrocon side from getting triggered and sending you out of control, Cliff. Locking you up isn't going to help you." Arcee sighed, already explaining this to her old partner but she choose to remain patient with him. Primus knew he needed it after what happened earlier that week. "It was only luck you managed to snap out of your rampage after you saw Arachnid."
"Don't remind me," Cliffjumper shuddered, briefly remembering he had blacked out during the move. When he got out of it everyone was battered pretty good and he had gotten very close to damaging Arachnid's stasis pod beyond repair. He doesn't remember what stopped him from tearing that thing apart or Arachnid limb by limb but now he only felt guilt and helplessness that he couldn't fight back the rage that led to him hurting his teammates, "Sorry Bulkhead!"
"I still can't believe he was able to pick you up and toss you into the Mess Hall" Miko muttered to Bulkhead from her spot on his shoulder.
"Not before he tossed you into me." Smokescreen cringed and Jaden patted his shoulder reassuringly. The whole incident nearly tore off the grafts for his door wing with that impact. Ratchet almost blew a gasket when he found out what happened and looked about ready to offline Cliff permanently but they were able to calm him.
"No hard feelings." Bulkhead replied to Cliffjumper but the red autobot couldn't help but look away.
Bulkhead was happy to have an old friend literally back from the dead but at the same time he was concerned. Dark energon was crazy stuff. No one, not even Ratchet was even really sure what Cliffjumper was. Not even Cliffjumper who had limited memories of his death even though he was getting his older memories back.
This made Cliffjumper unpredictable and a ticking time bomb ready to go off at any moment. It was good Wheeljack was willing to help Cliff try to control that anger but Bulkhead couldn't help but think Cliff was right, that teaching him to use a weapon wasn't probably the best idea, not that they had many in the first place.
"You got this Cliff!" Miko called to the red autobot.
"At least someone believes in me…" Cliffjumper chuckled weakly, looking down at the swords again to look at the reflection on its surface. His optics were their normal aqua green but if he concentrated enough he could see the purple of the Dark energon creeping at the edges.
"Don't worry Cliff, we all believe you can overcome this. We're just concerned about you." Arcee added, pulling Cliffjumper from his thoughts.
"I'll probably disappoint you all but what the hell, I'll give it a shot." Cliffjumper shrugged and offered her grin.
"Now that sounds a little bit like the Cliff I remember." Arcee smiled and Bumblebee lets out a series of chirps and clicks, giving Cliffjumper a thumbs up.
"Yeah, you can do it, Cliffjumper!" Raf added and Marley gave him a thumbs up.
"Thanks for the vote of confidence…" Cliffjumper smiled grimly, glancing down at the four kids. He didn't understand why these humans would want to be so close to him after the last incident. He thought they would be afraid of him but here they were, encouraging him that he can control his terrocon instincts.
Still, Cliffjumper could tell could tell Bulkhead was a little nervous. It was harder to tell with Bumblebee, he's seemed to change somehow from the last he saw him. Though, it was nice to see they weren't completely terrified of him. He just hoped he didn't have to give them another reason to.
"Focus!" Wheeljack shouted, striking at Cliffjumper with the flat of his sword. Cliffjumper quickly blocks the attack but stumbles back. Arcee studies his stance before adjusting it a bit. Wheeljack runs Cliffjumper through a few drills and how to control his strength when he strikes.
"Alright, enough practice. Time for you to get in a real match." Wheeljack replied, turning to face the other bots. "You lot have all been relaxing for a week, time to test your skills, so everyone in the ring."
"Are you serious?" Smokescreen whined.
"Yes, don't worry we'll go easy on the injured." Wheeljack replied, "Alright, who's going first?"
"May I join you?" Optimus spoke up from behind them, startling the team as they turn around to see him approaching them.
"Don't you dare! Your arm is still healing." Ratchet scolded the Prime, following close behind him.
"Optimus!" Raf perked up, smiling as he and Miko runs up to meet him.
"You're awake!" Jaden added.
"Finally!" Miko sighed in relief.
"Wait, is Jack awake yet?" Jaden asked, looking around.
"No, not yet. He still needs some time Jaden but I can assure you he is alright." Optimus gave him a weary but sincere smile.
"Alright, thanks Optimus." Jaden seemed to have a weight lifted from his shoulder before he noticed something. "Nice arm by the way."
Optimus looked to his new arm, holding it up for the others to see. It was still practically an exoskeleton but the new arm it was fitted with its first layer of armor. It was significantly thinner than his usual arm but it was protected.
"I'm impressed by what the humans did with all this." Arcee motioned toward Optimus' replaced arm. "And it works fine?"
Optimus nodded briefly, wiggling his fingers and clenching his fist to show it was a completely functional prosthetic.
"So how are you, Optimus? I mean, you look better but what about your memories?" Raf asked.
"It's…complicated." Optimus sighed, dropping his hand to his side. "I can assure you that my memories have been restored."
"So they were gone like Megatron said?" Smokescreen asked puzzled. Optimus glanced over at him, studying his door wing. He was glad he seemed to be healing just as well as he was.
"Yes, I apologize for the deception. Now, I know they all had questions. I have read over my briefings and now it is time for me to brief you." Optimus replied, motioning for the team to follow him back inside the Hangar E.
"I guess this means we'll have to reschedule the training." Wheeljack muttered, sheathing his swords.
"Wheeljack don't tell me you were about to spar with Smokescreen or Bulkhead, their injuries have already been aggravated by the Mess Hall incident." Ratchet groaned, glaring darkly at the Wrecker.
"I wasn't going to push them too hard, Doc." Wheeljack chuckled, smirking slightly as he followed the others inside. Ratchet smacked the back of Wheeljack's head with his hand before following after him.
Optimus led the team into the common area. Each of them went to retrieve a cube of energon before making themselves comfortable, either sitting on the floor or on some nearby crates. Agent Fowler and the rest of the humans joined them. Optimus sat in front of the group, glancing them over briefly before sighing deeply.
"I know that the circumstances of my memory loss has been a complicated subject. However, now is the time for your questions to be answered. Back when the Key to Vector Sigma had been destroyed only a fraction of my memories returned. Most of which I no longer had an emotional attachment to." Optimus explained.
"What does that mean?" Miko asked.
"I had several memories where I could see them in my mind but I could not remember ever committing these actions…" Optimus paused, trying to think of an example he could share with the humans present in the room. "…I could remember the moment in the Council Room where I had given my speech just before I had been made a Prime. I could hear each word I spoke but I could not remember how these words came to me. It was as if I was watching another person speaking as me."
"But you said you're better now, right?" Bulkhead asked, he knew very well how messed up it was to have failing memory.
"Yes, more memories are returning to me. But I did not retrieve them on my own. Jack helped me create a proper connection between my memories once again." Optimus replied.
"What? What does that mean? How is that possible?" June spoke up, looking up at Optimus confused. How could her son be able to help Optimus with his memory loss?
"The patch made Jack's mind very unstable. I had to aid him and in that process our minds formed a connection. Since the knowledge of the Primes resides in his mind our connection fit together the missing pieces. The connection also stabilized Jack's damaged psyche." Optimus added, feeling a bit weary going through all of this but the others needed these answers.
"So Jack's okay now?" June asked.
"Yes, he should be fine only requires rest and time." Optimus replied, offering her a reassuring smile.
"Wait, this connection you made with Jack. Do you mean you made a bond with him?" Smokescreen asked curiously.
"Isn't that bond that thing bots make to show they're married?" Miko asked, remembering the conversation they had with Ratchet on the subject.
"No Miko," Optimus sighed, pinching the bridge of his nose avoiding the alarmed looks he was getting from June and Marcus. "This bond is different, it's too unique to even categorize it."
"So what is this connection exactly?" June asked, looking unsure if she wanted an answer.
"To an extent it is a telepathic connection between two or more Cybertronians." Ratchet explained, looking down at her.
"Like Miko mentioned it can be a bond between couples but it can also form between parents and children." Optimus replied, sighing softly. "I believe this is the closest equivalent to our current situation."
"However, given that Jack is a human this sort of thing has never been heard of." Ratchet added, crossing his arms.
"So now Jack has two dads." Miko summed up, briefly glancing between Optimus and Marcus. "Awkward."
Optimus looked to Marcus and couldn't help but sense a bit of tension he didn't notice before. He briefly sensed a wave of Jack's distress. Jack was aware of this conversation in a sense. This bond is going to take some getting used to. Hopefully once Jack wakes up they would have more time to study it and test it.
"You almost lost your own life to bring our son home safe." Marcus' voice pulled Optimus out of his thoughts. "Thank you, we will always be grateful for all you've sacrificed. All of your sacrifices." He added, regarding the entire team.
"I don't completely understand all this mind connection stuff but thank you for saving my son." June added with a weary smile and Optimus returned the gesture.
"Still, now I'm a bit curious. What is a bond's purpose in Cybertronian culture? Specifically the children and parent bonds?" June asked.
"Bonds helps teach new Cybertronians how to interact and socialize with the aid of their caretaker. They teach what is not written in their core programing. It makes us more sensitive to each other's emotions. This helps to learn empathy and the like. These sort of bonds tend to exist in family units but our definition of family vary from humans." Ratchet explained.
"The bond also provides a nonverbal means of communication. It's hard to explain. If a child is upset, a caretaker could send a field of energy or waves to the child to help provide comfort and reassurance. The connection also works both ways. So the caretaker can know, even if they weren't in the same room that the child was in distress." Optimus added.
"Have you done this with Jack?" Marcus asked.
"Yes, back when I was injured by the ground bridge Jack had been frantic. In the last moments before I lost consciousness I did what I could to reassure him through our bond." Optimus replied, only vaguely remembering the exchange.
"Well he did look a little calmer before passing out." Miko noted. "So what did you tell Jack in the span of three seconds?"
"What I sent to Jack was not necessarily words. It was more like emotions to bring him comfort. One could even send memories through a bond." Optimus replied, he was still trying to piece it together everything but believes he covered all.
Though, Ratchet noticed he looked troubled. "Optimus, is something wrong?"
"I did not realize this until our bond was forming but Jack has been hiding his emotions and has become withdrawn. He had been experiencing visions of the Knowledge of the Matrix long before it was triggered in the Valley of Fire. Yet, he never found it in himself to confide in any of them that something was wrong. I would have expected he would have at least come to me about this…" Optimus said softly.
"Jack's been this way for a while. Long before he met you." June sighed. "He thinks he can handle things on his own rather than seek help."
"Since when has he been like that? It's seems like it's becoming unhealthy for him." Marcus asked before June cross her arms and looked away from him.
"Jack has gotten a lot more independent since you've been gone. Of course you wouldn't know since you never bothered to visit." She replied.
"Jack wants nothing to do with me!" Marcus sighed, rubbing his temple. "Honestly I don't blame him and now is not the time or place to discuss this."
Optimus studied Marcus for a moment, remembering the memory of the crash he had witnessed in Jack's mind. As an outsider he could see Marcus lashed out at Jack out of anger and grief, blaming him for what happened to Jack's eldest brother. Optimus also felt Jack's emotions and how he felt in that situation, it didn't feel good. He could sense in his spark that that moment shattered Jack's trust in his father. If they were ever to mend things it was going to take a lot of time and patience away from all this madness.
"Uh, so what now?" Marley asked, trying to break the awkward tension.
"Jack's safety is our first priority. Jack will have to be moved to a safe location along with his family." Optimus replied, surprising the team.
"Why? Is this base not safe enough for Jack?" Dr. Suzuki asked.
"Yes and no. For the moment it is safe but when Jack wakes up he needs time to heal somewhere away from the front lines." Optimus explained knowing this is something Jack really needs to recover.
"And you have somewhere in mind, don't you?" Jaden asked, noting the look in Optimus optics.
Optimus nodded before turning to Jaden and his parents, "I need you to make your preparations. You leave tomorrow."
"That soon?" Arcee perked up. "Optimus, permission to accompany the humans. Jack's my partner and I would like to be there when he wakes up."
"I understand that Arcee but you are needed here. We need to conduct a search for any other components of Nexus that may have been recovered by the human government." Optimus replied, surprising the team again. That was unexpected.
Arcee was about to argue but sensed something was wrong, "Why the sudden urgency?"
"Clocker needs to be transported along with Jack and his family." Optimus sighed softly, thinking back to the vision. "I fear his life is also in danger,"
"Clocker? He hasn't woken from stasis yet. And from what?" Ratchet muttered before looking to Optimus and studying him. "Where's this coming from?"
"As my mind became one with the Matrix I had a vision. Ratchet, it was Nexus. He was being attacked, torn apart. It explains why Clocker was found here and there is no signs of Mainspring, Cannonspring, or Pinion. They are the only ones unaccounted for. I also fear that those who attacked Nexus is still a threat." Optimus replied.
"Then a search must be conducted to find the others." Ratchet realized, sighing softly. Just another thing to add to the list of growing problems they needed to resolve.
"I believe there is only one component of Nexus remains on earth. Clocker wasn't alone when he crash landed here." Optimus added.
"Sounds like we need to go back to the Valley of Fire." Arcee sighed, realizing why she would be needed. "…Understood, sir."
"We also need to search for more information on Project: Icarus or anything remotely having to do with any more Cybertronian bodies that the government may have obtained prior to their arrival to earth." Ratchet added
"Sounds like a scavenger hunt at this point." Bulkhead replied and the team shared a tired look.
"I'll see what I can do about getting that information." Fowler replied, taking out his phone as he walked off to make some calls.
"I can help too." Raf added, picking up his laptop and quickly following Fowler.
"In the meantime we need to set up search teams to head to the Valley of Fire." Optimus replied, standing to look over the team.
"We should check out that cave that Jack, Raf and I found the first Blade of time." Miko replied with a grin, "I volunteer to help in the search. Lot of the tunnels are small so you need all the help you can get and an extra set of eyes."
"Thank you, Miko. We appreciate the help." Optimus smiled weakly before turning to address his autobots. "In the meantime, I'll handle Jack and Clocker's transfer. It shouldn't take long."
"So while we're under autobot "witness protection" with Jack, where are we going?" Jaden asked, leaning against the railing of the platform. "I mean, where's a safer place than a base with seven giant fighting robots?"
"I'm afraid we must keep the location a secret for now. We cannot afford another security breach or the decepticons capturing and using a patch on any of the others." Optimus replied.
"But didn't the decepticons die in the crash?" Marley asked.
"There may be no signs of them for now but I doubt that they perished in the crash." Optimus sighed softly. Megatron has survived worse after all.
"You'll learn where you're going soon enough I assure you." Optimus added before turning to Team Prime settle the search parties. "Your search begins tomorrow. Dismissed."
"It's good to see you up and around again, sir." Smokescreen smiled.
"It's good to see you in one piece as well, Smokescreen." Optimus replied before Smokescreen chuckled.
"Ha, I get it. Good one." He grinned and Optimus tilted his head puzzled before realizing his choice of words and he glanced at Smokescreen's newly attached door wing. "I knew you had it in you to make a joke." With that Smokescreen followed the others out of the hangar.
Optimus couldn't help but smile before trying to move to head to the monitor before Ratchet pulled him back to sit down. "Oh no you don't. You haven't even touched your energon. You're not going anywhere until that cube is empty."
"Ratchet—"Optimus tried to argue but the medic merely shoved the cube in his hands.
"Drink. Now. We don't need you going into stasis for ignoring the basic necessities." Ratchet scolded him, crossing his arms.
"You're right, my apologies, Ratchet." Optimus replied, sighing.
"Don't apologize and just drink the cube." Ratchet replied and only relaxed a bit when Optimus complied.
"Hey Optimus?" Marley asked, Optimus perked and looked over at the young girl.
"Yes?" He asked.
"Since you ordered everyone to rest for the rest of the day I think we're still have physical therapy for all the injured bots." Marley explained, glancing briefly at the dents on his armor and then to his new arm. "Anyway, it was Jaden's idea and I was wondering if you'd like to join us later."
"It doesn't sound like a bad idea." Ratchet glanced at Optimus expectantly. His suggestion sounding more like an order.
"Very well. I will join you all later." Optimus replied with a chuckle.
"Great! I'll tell the others!" Marley grinned before running off.
Optimus watched her until she was out of sight and sighed contently before finishing his cube. It was only now that it hit him that everyone was worried about him. He was glad to see they were alright after what happened on the deception warship. In a way, they were all broken but they were willing to help each other heal.
"Are you sure sending Jack and the others to the island is a good idea?" Ratchet asked, sitting on a crate beside the Prime after regarding him for a moment. He was trying to figure out what was on his mind. He seemed rather different now and he wasn't sure if it was a good or bad thing yet.
"It is the safest place I can think of. We cannot leave Jack without any protection. Besides, Griffin Rock is far from the frontlines. Jack and Clocker should be safe." Optimus sighed, setting down the empty cube.
"If you say so but Optimus there is another thing that still bothers me." Ratchet added and Optimus gave him a puzzled look. "You said Mainspring, Cannonspring, and Pinion were unaccounted and Clocker is here but weren't there five components? Where is the last one? What was his name…?"
"Chaindrive." Optimus reminded him. "As you may recall, Nexus has a habit of wiping the memory core of each component when his identity is discovered or in this case his life was in danger and he needed to disappear."
"Yes and what of it?" Ratchet asked, raising an optic ridge.
"Chaindrive is here on earth." Optimus replied.
"What?" Ratchet gasped, quickly glancing at the direction the team went. It couldn't have been any other the members in Team Prime. The timings didn't fit. So who was left? "Optimus the only other autobots stationed on earth are the Rescue Team."
Optimus said nothing and only have him a knowing look. Ratchet's optics widened.
A/N: Well that was fun i hope you guys enjoyed that please tell me what you guys think one review the other day literaly reminded me of this story and got me to update so you have .sunshine to thank for the new chapter!
