Rhodey sighed. She had done her best to answer as many of the ‘bots’ and ‘cons’ questions and what she thought may have caused all of this to happen. Of course, there were a few questions as to which she had no clue about, but as for the rest of the questions, she didn’t seem to have a problem answering.
Now they were just sitting in small groups, talking about themselves and sharing stories about where they were from and how they differed from each other. An even greater relief was that the Autobots and Decepticons were getting along and not trying to blast each other to oblivion. They didn’t have a reason to fight anyway. Their conversations continued until it was finally time to go to bed.
Rhodey yawned. “Alright guys, that’s all for tonight. It’s time to get some sleep.”
“What was that?” Bumblebee asked curiously
“Huh? Oh, it’s called a yawn. It’s what humans do when they’re tired or really sleepy” she explained, “Like me. I need to get some sleep.”
Rhodey went to lie on her bed when she thought of something. She turned around and saw that they were still in the same spot looking a little confused.
“Um, where do you all plan on sleeping?” she asked. They looked at each other.
“We don’t know” Hotshot spoke for the rest of them, scratching the back of his head
“Oh, boy. I don’t know what to tell you guys. Umm, well, is there anywhere in particular you guys wanna sleep?” she said.
She was sitting on her bed, trying to figure out where they could sleep. Then she looked down to her bed. It was pretty big for a girl her size. An idea hit her, but she wasn’t sure if they’d be comfortable with the suggestion she was about to ask.
“Well. If you want, you guys can, well, uh, I don’t know” she began shyly, ringing her fingers, “If you want, you could sleep on my bed tonight. I’ve got lots of room that is if you guys want. We could find somewhere for you guys to sleep tomorrow night.
Her transformers looked at each other, talking lowly amongst each other. Hotshot finally turned around and said, “Sure. We won’t mind.” He smiled.
Rhodey smiled back. “Alright then, everybody, get on and find a comfortable spot” she said, “None of you snore, right?”
“Starscream” Rodimus coughed
Megatron snickered and the others laughed softly. Starscream simply growled at them all. Rhodey giggled at him. “Oh, their just playing with you, well maybe not Megatron, but otherwise it was just a little joke” She patted her bed so that the others would climb up.
They all went to different sections of the bed, some by themselves, some laying a little closer to each other, all in all finding comfortable spots to sleep. Hotshot, on the other hand, hesitantly made his way to Rhodey’s pillow. When she saw him, she knew exactly what he wanted and gently put her hand behind him and pulled him closer to her face. Hotshot lay on her pillow and relaxed, glad that she hadn’t said no or pushed him away.
“You know, I was kinda’ hoping you would ask” he whispered shyly, “It would have been kinda awkward if I’d asked you in front of everyone”
“I know what you mean. At least you didn’t have to ask all of them. That was awkward” she whispered back
It wasn’t strange at all to have Hotshot lying next to her since he had been the first one she met. They were already good friends. The others had still seemed a bit shy and didn’t get to close too her. Oh, well, they’ll trust her eventually. Her eyes began to close when she felt something on her. She was going to yelp, but bit it back and just looked down the bed. She couldn’t help but smile softly at what she was seeing.
It seemed her new friends couldn’t find a good spot to sleep in and had decided to rest themselves against or on top of her. Megatron, Optimus, and Primus, being the biggest, laid themselves against Rhodey therefore allowing the smaller to find comfortable resting places on top of her. The mini-cons decided to rest on her chest, where they could here her heartbeat, a relaxing sound that soon put them to sleep. Starscream, Rodimus, and Optimal chose to rest on part of her stomach, a little close to the mini-cons. Bee, Arcee, Barricade, and both Jazzes took up the rest of her stomach and part of her upper abdomen, some even resting their heads on the others stomach’s or chest’s as pillows. Frenzy was, of course, resting in ‘Cades chest. Landmine and Thundercracker went to her legs, resting their heads on her calves.
Everyone seemed to have found a place to rest, except Blurr who was looking around trying to find an open spot, but just couldn’t seem to. He didn’t exactly feel too comfortable asking someone if he could lie next to them. He gave up and started to retreat the end of the bed. Rhodey saw this and didn’t want him to feel left out.
“Blurr” she whispered
He turned around and saw her motioning for him to go to her. He came up to her and with her free hand, she gently pushed the slumbering mini-cons a little to the left of her chest, picked up Blurr, and laid him down on top of her chest. He looked up at her and his optics brightened gratefully, silently saying ‘thank you’. She smiled down at him and fell asleep with her friends at her side.
A stir. Rhodey began waking up slowly, feeling a weird pressure on her chest and other parts of her body. What is that? Oh, yeah.
She looked down and saw her friends all sleeping. Her left hand was resting on Blurr, who was sleeping on her chest, and her right was against Hotshot’s back as he slept on her pillow. She smiled. They look so cute when they’re sleeping. She sighed contently and gently rubbed a finger against Hotshot’s back to wake him up. He groaned and reached back, trying to swat her finger away. She giggled silently and tried again this time succeeding.
Hotshot’s optics came online and glared softly. “You couldn’t wait five more minutes?” he whined.
“Nope” she giggled back at him
He tried to hold his glare, but couldn’t and just chuckled lightly with her. It may have been kinda awkward at first, but having a giant human for a friend was pretty cool. He stretched his joints and sat up, smiling when he saw that everyone had decided to follow his example to sleep close to Rhodey.
Rhodey slowly stretched, trying not wake anyone or push someone off the bed. The next to begin to stir was Primus followed by Optimus and Megatron. Blurr woke up as well and Rhodey removed her hand so he could sit up.
“Morning” she whispered to them
“Good morning” “Hello Rhodey” Optimus and Primus greeted her quietly
Megatron just grumbled and waved it off. Hey, just because he promised not to fight, didn’t mean that he had to be happy-go-lucky all of a sudden.
Blurr nodded his greeting to Rhodey.
Slowly everyone else started to awake from their slumber. Starscream, Rodimus, and Optimal sat up and stretched, Optimal yawning as he did so. Bee, Arcee, ‘Cade, and the two Jazzes woke up, picking their heads up off each other, then sliding off of Rhodey and onto the bed. The last to wake up were Landmine and Thundercracker.
With everyone awake, Rhodey got out of bed and helped some of them down then remembering her dinosaurs, went to check on them. She still couldn’t help but be amazed at them and reached to gently pick one up. She carefully moved her hand to her favorite, the raptor, and picked him up slowly so as not to startle him. She brought him close to her chest, petting him, thinking that this was the most amazing thing that had happened to her. Not only had her transformers come to life, but also the very creatures that had amazed her since she was a toddler. Jurassic Park, of course, was the first movie to get her hooked.
Hotshot had somehow found a way to climb up her body and sat on her shoulder, observing the strange animal.
“What is that, anyways?” he asked
“He’s a dinosaur. He’s called a velociraptor” she told him, “They’re reptiles that lived on the earth long ago and then went extinct. They were pretty big, maybe even as big as or bigger than you guys.”
“Wow. That’s cool”
“Yeah. Where should I put them? They can’t stay up here forever.”
Rhodey looked around, the raptor still in her hand, trying to see if there was a safe place to put her dinosaurs. She looked at her desk. It seemed pretty big, but they needed something to keep them from going anywhere. Rhodey remembered her electronic race track and detached the plastic guard rails from it. She attached the guard rails around her desk so that the dinosaurs had the whole desk to wonder on. She took off any important papers and spread scrap paper around so that the desk wouldn’t get dirty, if you know what I mean.
She gently took each Dinosaur and placed them onto their new living space, watching as they roamed around and hoping the guard rails would keep them back from the edge. One of them, a stegosaur, walked up to the guard rail, sniffed at it and then backed away. The rail worked. Good. She had at least six different dinosaurs.
1. Velociraptor (Raptor)
2. Stegosaur (Stego)
3. Brachiosaur (Brachio)
4. Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-rex)
5. Triceratops (Trike)
6. Corythasaur (Cory)
She was glad she had never gotten a pterosaur because then she would have had a problem. She didn’t know of any way to safely clip a dinosaur’s wings.
“Hey, could I get a closer look?” Hotshot asked
Rhodey placed him on the desk. He walked up to them and she saw the obvious size differences. The T-rex and the Brachio were as tall as him, if not a little taller. The Cory, the Stego, and the Trike all reached up to at least his waist, the Raptor a little taller. She smiled as he petted them with as much amazement as she had for these magnificent reptiles. He turned and smiled at her, his joy and wonder evident.
She looked back at the other transformers to see what they were up to while this was going on. They all seemed to be getting along well. They were sitting in little groups again like they had last night. Optimus, Megatron, and Primus sat together, more than likely explaining where each had come from and the different battles they faced. Megatron didn’t seem too happy, but she was thankful that he was at least trying to tolerate it all. Rodimus, Starscream, and Optimal sat in their group, laughing every now and then at a funny story or a good joke. Bee, Arcee, Cade, the two Jazzes, Thundercracker, and Landmine sat with each other, laughing as well whenever someone did or said something and then just simply conversing among each other. The mini-cons sat in their own small little group, Frenzy walking over to join them since in a way they were alike. But once again, Blurr was not with any of these groups. Speaking of Blurr, where was he?
Rhodey looked around, not knowing where he could have gone, but then looked down and saw him walking over to her. She knelt down and picked him up, smiling softly at him. It seemed that whenever the transformers hung out in groups, it was with those who were like them or similar. The only other one like Blurr was Hotshot, being from his time and dimension.
“You doing alright?” she asked
“Yes, thank you”
“It’s still a little strange for you, huh?”
“A little bit, but I am adjusting” he sat on Rhodey’s shoulder and watched Hotshot, who was now sitting down with the dinosaurs next to him and petting them.
“It’ll be okay. I know it would be hard for me to adjust if our positions were switched. I probably wouldn’t believe it.”
“Mmm. Yes, it can be quite shocking when you wake up in a room too big for comfort.”
“I can only imagine what that could be like”
They continued their conversation for a while, everyone else now content and adjusted to their current positions. They had all now agreed that the star had somehow brought them into this reality and even though it was strange and confusing, they weren’t in any hurry to get back. It was nice to just sit back and not worry of attacks or stress over battle. It was nice to get along for once. They had never realized that, if given the time, they could develop friendships and share so many things in common and they would never have realized this if it hadn’t been for a lonely girl, a star, and a wish.
Rhodey sighed happily. Blurr was sitting with Hotshot and the dinosaurs, the both of them talking with each other. I don’t know how a star did this, but I’m sure glad it did. I couldn’t ask for any better.
She left Hotshot and Blurr together and went to sit with Primus and the two leaders. They began talking as if they had known each other for a long time. Rhodey was happier than she had ever been in her life and wasn’t worried about a thing, but little did she know that this was only the beginning.
