Amelia's POV - 15 Years Later
As I stared blankly at the large need going toward my chest, I couldn't be afraid. I knew I was making the right choice.
I couldn't stand by and watch my parents slowly get even more unhappy as the years rolled by.
I couldn't watch my mother, whom deserved a happy life, seeing as she did everything to give me one, wake up every morning with a sad smile.
She wasn't miserable, just disappointed that her future wasn't what she wanted.
Her and my father got along and everything. They were happy together and could tell they were just as in love as ever, but you could also see the longing look my mother held for him.
I asked her once why she looked at him that way. She said "because I'm in my thirties and I keep thinking one day he'll look at me and not want me."
I tried to quell her worries, but she couldn't completely forget that she was aging everyday where as my dad would stay the same for a while. Of course, she also did the same to me...
Silver-blue liquid slowly was appearing in the syringe, a pain making my chest feel uncomfortable. Ratchet smiled. "It won't be much longer. You're doing great."
the pain subsided as I thought about what I was doing this for.
The needle released from my chest and Ratchet capped it. "All done."
I sat up, putting my legs off the side of the berth. I ran a hand though my hair. "I'll age like a human now? I don't feel any different..."
"You shouldn't feel different."
"How mad do you think they'll be?"
"Your parents will be unhappy because they want more for you, but your mother will take take your energy and get over it."
I laugh lightly, smiling.
"Anyway, your father can't be mad either. At one point he said her give up his aging if he could to be with your mother. You gave up yours to be with Nate and age like he does. Everyone wins. He'll have to understand."
As I look over at the syringe and think about everything that would happen after my mom received the energy in it, and everything that I could do now that I don't have that energy, I knew I made the right choice.
My parents could finally have a happy ending. We could finally have a happy ending.
I leaned my head on Nate's shoulder and put my arm though his. "When do you have to go back?"
I shrugged, not sure he could see me. "Soon."
He leaned his head down, kissing my forehead. "Is your dad coming to get you?"
I nodded. "Yeah."
"I feel like he doesn't like me."
I giggled. "You're a guy dating his daughter. He'll never like you."
"But seriously," I continued. "He likes you, he just worries about me and even about you." He turned to him and ran my fingers across his cheek. "He ages like me, of course, and he knows what it's like to love someone who you'll outlive. You know about my mom..."
He nodded. "So he does like me. He doesn't secretly want to blast me to death?"
I let out a loud laugh. "No. You're just paranoid because you fell in love with an alien's daughter. My dad won't so anything. Surprisingly, my mom is who you should watch for. She's crazy."
I noticed my dad arrive through the windows of his house.
"Well, I'll see you tomorrow?"
He nodded, pulling me down to kiss my cheek.
I grabbed my messenger bag and made my way to my dad's car form. The door opened for me, allowing me to get in the passenger's side.
I smiled, leaning over to hug him. "Hey, Dad."
He smiled. "Hey." He then hugged me back. "You have a good time?"
I nodded, shrugging.
He began driving, but he was looking at me. "Something's wrong? I know I'm not Makkenna, but just because I'm not your mom doesn't mean you can't talk to me."
I nodded, again. "I know." I groaned, looking to him. "Ever since I told him about what I was and about my family, he's acted different. Not a bad different, just off."
"What do you think is bothering him?"
"The aging thing...I know you know how it feels and- what do I do? Dies it get better?"
He was silent for a moment. I didn't think he was going to respond, until he finally sighed and spoke up. "No. It never gets better. I look at your mother every day and think 'she deserves better' or 'how am I gonna live without her?'" He put a hand I my shoulder. "I would tell you that the best thing you can do is wait until you find someone who you can really be with, but I know that's easier said than done, and I'm not the best example of doing that."
"You guys had me. You guys really had no other choice because of me."
He shook his head. "No, she and I have talked about that. Even if you hadn't come into the world, she would still be right by my side. She's stubborn and she said it would be too late to move on. I would of course want her to choose someone else, selfishly of course, but she wouldn't." He shrugged. "I love her more than anything, but I wish I could give her more. That's what you're probably feeling, in a way, correct?"
"Yeah, but he chooses me. There's nothing I can do, because I want him to choose me! It would just be easier on him if he didn't..."
He smiled. "That's how I always felt..."
We rode in silence for a while, until I finally decided on something else to ask. "Mom is- how does it feel to stay your age and see her getting older? How does she feel?"
"I feel like time is going by too quickly and all I can do is stand by and watch. I'll never see her differently, not matter her age...I just feel like she thinks I do. She's very...self conscious of herself."
I sighed. "I know and I tell her not to be. She isn't even forty and she looks like she's in her twenties." I smiled and my dad and poke his shoulder. "Plus, I always tell her you're still hot her and that's what matters."
He runs a hand over his face. "Inappropriate."
"But true!" I laugh. "She never disagrees with that statement either...anyway, it's obvious because she's pre-"
"Amelia." He said, sternly, cutting me off. "Not having that conversation."
"Mhm." I smirk.
By this time, we had arrived back to base, getting allowed through the gates immediately.
Dad parked, door opening for me again. He walked around and put an arm around my shoulders. "I'm definitely going to to have to ask your mother what you two talk about..."
I laughed. "Trust me, Dad. You don't wanna know."
"Bee!" It was Jazz, waving my dad to come over.
He leaned over and kissed my temple, "see you later, sweetie."
I rolled my eyes. "By, Dad."
I wave a hello to Sideswipe from across the hanger and made my way out.
As I sat on the floor of the main hanger, up against the wall, and watched my parents together, I remembered what my dad and I talked about yesterday.
She was reading a book on the floor, seated in between my dad's Holoform's outstretched legs as he spoke with my Grandpa.
They bother were always happy with each other, but you could tell the time clock that ticked away bothered them both. They spent all of their time together and close to each other. They cherished every moment they had because we all know that one day, they won't have any moments left.
I wished every day I could do something to give my mom all the time she dreamed of having.
Kind of ironic that she wants more time and I don't want the time I have.
The things my family go through for love.
"I wish I could just give her my time..." I mumble to no one in particular.
"You could..." I turn to see Sideswipe.
I laugh. "Not funny."
He sat down beside me. "No, seriously. You don't know about that?"
I looked at him.
"Your parents have that weird connection thing. Well, when you were still young, we found out that their connection was still there because of Cybertronian energy resonating in her body. It's still there and if she wanted to age like Bee, we could get a Cybertronian to give her their energy. A few of us offered, but she wouldn't take it because if we give up our energy to her, we become human and age like one. She doesn't any anyone to sacrifice anything for her without good reason and she doesn't see generosity as a good reason."
"I didn't know that." I said quietly. "That would solve two problems and if I could...give her my energy. Would that work?"
He shrugged. "You'd have to go ask Ratchet. You know they won't allow-"
I got up, deciding to go to the medical bay. "They will."
I threw the medical bay doors open and found Ratchet's Holoform looking over a stack of papers.
He turned. "Yes?"
"Could I give my energy to my mom do she can age like my dad again?"
His eyes grew large. "Who told you about that?"
"No one. Is it possible?"
He scrunched his eyes shut and pinched the bride of his nose. "Yes, but your mother and father will never approve of it."
"I want to do it."
I shrug. "I can be with Nate. She can be with Dad. Everything works out."
He nodded. "Your parents would never approve, as I said."
"Who said they have to know until it's done?"
He waved his hands in front of him. "I'll get in trouble."
"Ratchet-" I began."please."
He sighed, running a hand though his Holoform's hair. "Are you sure? I won't be getting in trouble for you for no reason."
He shakes his head. "The things Cybertronians do for humans...first Bumblebee, now you."
"I'll take the blame."
"They just don't want to say goodbye to you. You'll be shortening your lifetime. They will outlive you. They just don't want to see that happen."
I shrug. "They went through this. They should understand why I want to do it. Plus, mom's pregnant. She's gonna have one to age like them."
He put a hand on my shoulder. "You know that's not the point, but we can do it tomorrow."
"No. You'll tell my Dad."
"You are your mother's child." He pulls out a box. "Let's get started then."
