Transformers Prime: Spy Recruit
Chapter 1: Old Friend
One night out on a Highway in the town of Iacon, a mech named Bumblebee was going home after taking a little drive around. It was very late at night, not many other mechs or femmes were out. Bumblebee hummed as his favorite song played on his radio. He wasn't expecting anything big to happen that night. He seemed to be the only one on the highway. But that all changed when two cars drove onto the highway and followed him. Bee hadn't noticed them at all. He continued on down the highway as the two cars closed in. Bee didn't even take time to look in his rearview mirror as he recieved a fierce bump from behind.
"OW, WHAT THE FRAG?" Bee yelped accidently swerving around the road trying to stay in control.
One of the cars sped up and rammed Bee against the railing of a bridge they were passing on.
"GET OFF OF ME"! Bee snarled fighting to push the car away.
The second car sped up too and both of them double-teamed against Bumblebee trying to knock him off the long bridge. Bee struggled to speed up but didn't get a chance when the second car swayed away, then rammed his partner causing him to ram Bee right off the bridge. The railing broke and Bee plummeted down to road below. Luckily Bee was able to land on his tires and run away. The cars jumped off the bridge and chased him. They weren't going to let him get away. Bee frantically sped down the long stretch of road. The two cars were gaining on him. Bee was almost near downtown Iacon when the cars caught up and rammed him off the road. Bee was forced to transform and land in a pile of dirt at a construction site. He coughed as dirt filled the sky. He could hear two transformations. As the dust cleared, he could see what looked like two drones coming at him. Bee backed up upon seeing them.
"What do you two want, you were chasing me all across the highway!" Bee said backing up until he knocked into a pile of junk knocking it and himself over.
"THE RELIC! WHERE IS IT?" One of the drones snapped.
"RELIC? WHAT RELIC?" Bee said confused. But the drones thought he was playing dumb.
"YOU KNOW GOOD AND WELL WHAT RELIC!" The same drone snapped again.
"I don't know what you are talking about!" Bee said trying to stay calm as he got back up.
The drones growled and walked closer to him. Bee couldn't back up anymore.
"YOU'RE GOING TO TELL US OR ELSE!" The other drone said with his visor narrowing on Bee.
Bee didn't know what to say next. He just looked around trying to find an escape route.
"YOU GOT 5 SECONDS TO TELL US!" The first drone snapped.
"I DON'T KNOW!" Bee yelled.
"Alright then, looks like we are gonna have to beat the answer out of ya!" The second drone said with the first one agreeing.
They advanced on the mech and proceeded to beat the slag out of him. They beat him literally to the ground and kept on. Bee struggled to block their blows but he wasn't a good fighter. After 3 violent minutes, one of the drones picked up Bee and tossed him into a nearbye wall. Bee's previous spot had a big puddle of energon. A little puddle of energon had already gathered where Bee was now. He struggled to stand up. He had been beaten harshly and was shaking and coughing. Dents, claw marks and scratches covered the poor mech. He even had a black optic. He watched as the drones ganged on him again.
"YOU BETTER TELL US!" One of the drones snapped pinning the dimmed-opticed Bee.
"I...don't...know!" Bee struggled to say.
The drone lost patience and shoved Bee to the ground bringing out his gun.
"WE'RE NOT PLAYING AROUND, YOU KNOW WHERE IT IS! TELL US OR PRIMUS HELP ME I WILL BLOW A HOLE THROUGH YOUR BACK!" The drone yelled angrily. The other drone intervened.
"Dude, are you nuts? We need him alive!" The drone said trying to calm down his partner.
"You're right, but this idiot won't tell us!" The drone said putting away his gun.
"Because I don't know what relic you are talking about!" Bee struggled to say. The drones looked back at him and wished they could grin.
The drones started kicking dust at the weak mech while laughing. Bee covered his busted face as the dust covered his whole body.
"UGH! STOP! LEAVE ME ALONE!" Bee yelled.
The drones laughed at the mech, not hearing a big rig heading straight towards him. The mech transformed and jumped at the drones knocking them on the ground. Bee could barely see what was happening as the dust rose higher. The drones saw who the mech was and raced away in fear. All Bee could hear was two cars racing away. Then he heard footsteps coming closer. A pair of optics shone through the dust and Bee felt cold metal servo's picking him up. Once he was out of the dust he looked at the mech who was holding him.
"O-o-optimus?" Bee said in surprise as his optics dimmed even more.
Optimus Prime smiled.
"Don't worry old friend, I got ya!" Optimus said carrying him to his trailer that he had left by the side of the road. A mustang police car was waiting for him.
"I guess you really didn't need help!" The mech said.
"True, but Bumblebee will need our help in the future, Barricade." Optimus said.
He put the now out-cold Bee in his trailer and drove away from the construction site with Barricade following right behind. However, Bee wasn't heading home, he was heading somewhere else. A place where a new life-long adventure would begin. Meanwhile, the drones returned to find nothing but the two puddles of energon Bee had left behind.
"He's gone, and so is the info on the relic!" The more relaxed drone said.
"The boss isn't going to like this!" The other one said.
They left again thinking of their coming up punishment.
