Twilight Zone and Transformers
Acts of Terror
Summary: A story of a woman, who is abused by her husband, a different kind of friend, and a very strange gift…
The woman will be free only when she learns to stand up for herself, but she can't do it alone with the help of a friend from another world, and a gift from a family member.
Can she face this man she dares to call 'husband'? Or will she fall, again and again?
A woman, with short brownish reddish hair and bright brown eyes, stands outside waiting for the mailman to come by and deliver something she has been waiting for a very long time. Her friend, who was always supportive and caring, sits next to her, he is silent, he is still, but he is always on the alert! A man with a mail bag walks up the driveway with a few envelopes and a brown package, he smiles warmly at the woman and greets her, as he always does. "Good afternoon Mrs. Simonson!"
"Good afternoon!" She says trying to be cheerful.
"Oh! That looks awful! What happened?" He points to a bruise that is forming around her collar bone that was almost hidden under her dress. The woman panics and makes an excuse as she feels her friends' concern, as she pulls her dress over it to hide it from the world.
"Oh! I was just cleaning out the pantry yesterday, and I just… ran right into an open door." She smiles weakly hoping he would buy it.
"Well, you better put ice on it so the swelling will go down! I hope you're more careful next time!" He hands her the envelopes and starts to leave.
"Oh! Almost forgot!" He hands her a small package and smiles.
"Thank you so much!" She waves him off as she looks at the package. Once clear, her friend speaks to her in his low yet stern voice. "You did not hit yourself and you know it…"
"I know that! But he doesn't!" She said to her silver car with offended eyes. He sighs and purrs his engine in anger, "Leave Jack… Please, I'm begging ya! He's no good for you!"
She looked at her friend in dismay, how she loved Sideswipe dearly, but in her mind he worries too much! "You know I cannot! I love him!"
Sideswipe growls in his engine again. To him, her mate is not worth the trouble of beatings, and the way she once was so happy and carefree! But now… She fakes a smile and follows that fragger like a love struck pup! She can't even lift a finger without him telling her off, or even striking her in the face! He knows he's been on earth for a while, watching over his friend ever since they met, but he can't stand by and watch her live the way she does! But… This life makes her… Happy… In a way he can not understand… He just wants her to be happy…
"Be safe…" He whispers as she pats his hood.
"I promise I will."
She looks at the mail as she slowly walks to the door only to stop when she finds that the package the mailman had given her was a gift from her sister!
Sideswipe had been on earth for only a few months after his friend had gotten married to Jack Simonson, her name is Lewis. She was kind to him when they first met, which was by accident, but she was afraid only up to the point where he only came close if she allowed him. He didn't lie to her about what he was, he told the truth, he utterly was lost.
She couldn't give him the knowledge he so desperately needed, but she did allow him a place to rest.
He was grateful, Lewis listened to Sideswipe as he told her things that seemed strange to her, but a totally normal thing for him, but when it came to the point where he had to hide from her husband, he was forced to take a form of a silver car. He didn't know the name of it but all he knew is that it was a very primitive form. But he blended in, that was all that mattered for the time being.
Lewis was like a sister to him after a short bonding over the years he had been with the married couple, he was her transportation around to get things for her home, but mostly for that no good mate of her's.
Her husband, Jack Simonson, drove a rusty blue truck to work and fishing. Over time, he continuously goes fishing but never comes home with fish, this worries Sideswipe, but Lewis tells him that the fish are probably not biting a lot. He, on the other hand, doubts it.
~*~Inside the Simonson household~*~
"Jack! I got something from my sister!" She says with a smile on her face.
"No." Her husband says watching a football game on the TV, not bothering to look up to his wife.
Lewis looks at him with hurt eyes, "I just wanted to see what it was, is all dear…I mean, it's from my sister and I haven't seen her in such a long time…" All signs of joy suddenly drained from her face. She loved Jack so dearly that she fails to see the monster he truly is.
"12:05 Lewis… 12 o'clock is lunch." He says to her ignoring what she had said before.
She looks to the package, then to her husband. "Get in there and fix lunch. NOW." He orders as he continues to watch the game.
Lewis places the package and the other mail on the table next her. She slowly gets up, and then walks to the kitchen.
"Did we get any descent mail?" He asks coldly.
Lewis freezes and answers, pulling her knitted jacket closer over her chest. "No, just some bills… From then phone and the electric company… I thought you paid all the bills."
"WHAT?" Jack suddenly jumps to his feet to face her. She looks down and tries to hide as he gets closer to her.
"Are you saying I'm not doing my job? I'm not taking care of you? Is that what you're saying?" He gets in her face, forcing her back a little.
"NO! Not all Jack." She says frightened a little. The game catches her husband's attention for moment before he turns back with a scowl on his face.
"See? I missed something important." He looks at his watch, "Its 12:06 Lewis. Six minutes past noon, we know what 12 o'clock is don't we?"
Lewis starts to shrink into the kitchen, "12 o'clock is lunch." She says in a whisper as if to remember the next time.
Lewis eats bits of her sliced bread, and then looks back to the package on the table. She does this for a more minutes and her husband finally takes notice.
"What are you looking at?" He asks biting into his sandwich that Lewis had made him. She looks at him with a little bit of hope and stammers, "I-I was just wondering I-if I can o-open the package now…" She dares not to look him in the eyes.
"It might be… Something that will… Perish after some time like… Cookies! You know my sister loves to make cookies!" She said thinking fast.
"Can I open the package now?" She asks as Jack gets up to look for another beer bottle. Jack looks from behind the fridge door and nods with an "Uh Huh."
Lewis jumps from her seat and races to the package, she grabs it and goes to the front door and sits on the steps next to Sideswipe.
"Hello Lewis. What cha got there?" He asks as she starts to open the brown paper.
"A present from my sister! Oh, I can't wait to see what it is!" She rips the paper off and tears the box open with her nail to find a little wrapped bundle.
"A 'present'? What is that?" He asked not understanding. Lewis then goes to explain to the metal being that it's a gift that one person will give to another on certain days. This gift was for her birthday that was not to long ago.
"Oh, so it's like creation's day! Happy late creation day!" He said happily to her. She only laughed and patted his side, then resumed ripping the paper off the little bundle she was holding.
Inside the paper was a beautiful china statue, painted by hand, and shaped to look like a playful puppy. The type dog was a Doberman pinscher, he was back almost all over, only under his belly, the tips of his toes, and under his chin with a light brown color, and right around his neck was a piece of string to resemble a collar. Lewis loved it! She stroked the back of the dog and whispered, "Oh, Susan you remembered…" She smiled happily and held it close to her heart.
"Remembered what?" A cold voice asked behind her.
She jumped to her feet and twirled around only face her husband. He looked at the statue and pointed to it, "What's that?" The tone he used was uncaring.
"I-It was my birthday Friday. This is a gift she sent me." She answered without hesitation.
"Hmm, well, Happy Birthday…" He muttered like he didn't care, he suddenly snatched it out of her hands and looked it over.
Lewis was stunned and tried to get it back, "What? I won't break it." Jack said with a playful smirk, He made a ruff ruff noise and handed it back to her.
"See, no harm done!" He then went back inside to watch another game on TV.
Lewis shuttered and sat back next to her friend. "You shouldn't let him push you around like that." Sideswipe said.
"I know… But, its hard sometimes, I'm not as strong as you are, and I can't bear to think about fighting back, I don't want to be a mean person." She says.
Sideswipe listened to her as she spoke gently, he thought to himself, how could she think she's not strong? How could she think standing up to this man would instantly make her a mean person? She is only frightened with the idea of facing him, and losing. If she doesn't try, she will always be the one to fall and never stand at the victor's circle. He sighs and opens his door to her so she can sit inside and cool herself from the hot summer day. She leans back into the seat and holds her gift close.
"Thank you for everything Sideswipe… What would I ever do without you?" She asked snuggling further into the seat.
Okay! I posted a shorty I just thought of while just thinking and doing nothing!
Okay so I remembered and old episode of The Twilight Zone and suddenly Sideswipe hits me with and idea. He can be in the story too! I don't know why, but i thought it would be a fun idea! I loved making the first chapter, but I kinda changed some parts, so if you don't like then I'm sorry!
By the way I need a few people to review this so I can post the next chapter later! I hope you all liked it!
One more thing! I own nothing but the idea of mixing The Twilight Zone and transformers! If I did own either one I would be one O.H.S.O.B.! (One Happy Son Of a Bithch!) But I don't sooo! Boo! Review! And tell me what you think!
