Chapter 11: Thank You
All of the agents were equiping themselves with more weapons except for Shockwave who was standing in a corner of the room with his back turned to the others crying. Bumble Prime (Bumblebee) went over to comfort him. Shockwave had his face buried in his claws. Bee hesitated to a put a newly-clawed servo on his shoulder. But he did and Shockwave didn't tense up.
"Shockwave! Everything's going to be alright!" Bee said rubbing Shockwave's shoulder.
Shockwave in response reached back to grab Bee on the shoulder and tighten his grip a bit. He finally turned his head to show Bee how upset he was. A tear dropped down from his optic. Bee had never seen Shockwave so sad.
"Shockwave, we are going to save him. He's not going to perish!" Bee assured with a determined look on his face.
Shockwave, still not saying anything, actually hugged Bee tightly. Bee hugged back letting Shockwave let it all out. The others saw this and nearly cried themselves. After another few seconds Bee broke the hug.
"Shockwave...let's go get your brother back!" Bee said wishing he could smile.
Shockwave, also wishing he could smile, nodded. Optimus then made a list.
"Alright, Bumblebee, Barricade, Shockwave, Starscream and Soundwave take the lead! Dreadwing, you take Steve, Kenny and Clawswipe! I will follow behind! Megatron, Knock Out and Sideways stay back here!" Optimus instructed.
"Yes Sir!" Everyone said.
"Alright, everyone transform and roll out!" Optimus shouted as they left the agency.
Starscream and Soundwave finally were able to transform to flight mode and they soared through the sky. Shockwave stayed with his vehicle mode and stayed close to Bumblebee. Barricade and Optimus roared their engines as they sped down a highway. Steve and Kenny were also using their flight modes and joined Clawswipe and Dreadwing in the air. Meanwhile at Airachnid's HQ, Mirage had been placed in a jail cell. He was beaten and tired. He felt like he went 5 rounds with Megatron. He layed in the empty cell alone, afraid and cold. His cell was being guarded by two other drones. Not the same ones he was mech-napped by. He was curled up in a corner hidden away by darkness. He thought about Shockwave, he thought about home, he thought about his friends. He dug his claws into the metal floor after each thought. The guards would often insult him or threaten him. He was too afraid to speak since his communication with his brother. Little did he know, he was in the same cell that Steve, Kenny and Clawswipe were in 3 years ago.
"Shockwave...where are you? I miss you! Don't leave me here! Please! I want to go home!" Mirage thought.
Just then Airachnid walked past laughing.
"Poor, poor Mirage!" Airachnid teased.
"What do you want?" Mirage weakly snarled.
"Just to let you know that your brother is on his way here to try and save you! Hopefully he realizes he will fail and die quickly!" Airachnid grinned coming closer to the bars. She ordered the guards to open the cell door and she walked in slowly. Mirage prepared for more pain as the femme came closer. She spreaded all her limbs threateningly and placed two of them around Mirage's neck.
"Airachnid please! I don't want to die now!" Mirage pleaded weakily.
"It only depends how much trouble you or your friends give me!" Airachnid smirked. Then she heard commotion outside and a few of her drones being destroyed. She growled and walked towards the front doors where more drones and insecticons were waiting. Just then, Optimus busted down the front doors of the HQ. He, Barricade, Bumblebee and Shockwave enter first. Airachnid laughed.
"Well, well, well if it isn't the spies!" Airachnid began and she spreaded her limbs.
"AIRACHNID GIVE BACK MY BROTHER!" Shockwave snarls.
"He-he, only if you give me the relic!" Airachnid said.
"We can't!" Optimus said.
"WHY NOT?" Airachnid growled.
"Turns out, Bumblebee here IS the relic!" Barricade said.
Airachnid and her workers gasped.
"A LIVING RELIC, YOU'RE TELLING ME THIS LOSER IS A RELIC?" Airachnid yells out. Then she turns to the two drones. "YOU IDIOTS!"
"I AM NOT A LOSER, I'M THE GUY WHO'S GOING TO KICK YOUR BUTT!" Bee said.
Airachnid growls. Just then she hears three familiar voices behind her.
"HEY!" The voices yelled.
Airachnid and her troops turned around to see Clawswipe, Kenny and Steve teasing her.
"YOU THREE? I THOUGHT YOU WERE DEAD!" Airachnid snarls.
"Well you thought wrong!" Steve said.
"Can't catch us Airachnid!" Kenny said.
"WIMP!" Clawswipe laughs.
One of the insecticons get ready to pounce on them but Airachnid stops him.
"All of you handle the spies, I got these brats!" Airachnid said as she gives chase. Optimus and Dreadwing fight off the insecticons while Barricade, Bumblebee and Shockwave destroy the drones.
"AGENTS, GET HER!" Optimus yells.
Bumblebee and Shockwave race after Airachnid. Meanwhile, Airachnid chased after the three mechs.
"I don't know how you got in! BUT YOU'RE NOT GOING OUT!" Airachnid snarls.
"Windows work like a charm don't they!" Clawswipe teases.
Starscream and Soundwave had entered through the back and had told the trio to lure Airachnid towards Mirage's cell. Soundwave had located Mirage's cell. Mirage was relieved.
"Mirage! Don't worry, we got ya!" Starscream said and opened the lock with his claws.
Mirage could barely walk so Starscream and Soundwave picked him up and wrapped his arms around their necks. Steve and Kenny had allowed Clawswipe to stall Airachnid while they go and tell the seekers that she was coming. Clawswipe stopped her in a long hallway and decided to fight her. Airachnid grins.
"Oh I see, looking to go a few rounds with me?" Airachnid said as they begin to circle each other.
"Yeah, consider it revenge for trapping us in this pathetic place a few years ago!" Clawswipe growled.
"Alright then, let's go!" Airachnid said.
Both charged each other and went claw-to-claw. Clawswipe's goal was to rip off Airachnid's limbs. Bumblebee and Shockwave watch from around a corner. At this point, Starscream and Soundwave were nearbye with Mirage. Steve and Kenny ran ahead worried for Clawswipe. Clawswipe was tiring out and had only succeeded in ripping off one limb. Airachnid punched Clawswipe into a wall. Fortunately the seekers were just about to turn that corner. Steve and Kenny saw Clawswipe first and ran at Airachnid with their guns out and fired. Airachnid easily dodged the blasts and webbed them to the corner with Clawswipe.
"I'm sorry!" Clawswipe said.
"It's okay, you did your best!" Steve said and Kenny agreed. Optimus, Barricade and Dreadwing at this point had killed all the drones and insecticons and were searching the HQ for the others. But Dreadwing went outside the HQ to do something. Before Airachnid could see that Mirage had been freed, Bee fired at her and she turned around.
"GRRR! The relic and the cyclopicon!" Airachnid said.
"LEAVE THEM ALONE!" Bee snarled.
"I said I would destroy the relic when I find it so I'm going to destroy YOU!" Airachnid yells charging him.
Bumblebee ran up too and blocked Airachnid's incoming limbs. Bee punched her in the face knocking her back a bit. Airachnid shot lazers from her hands but they bounced off of Bee surprising everyone. Airachnid then tried shooting a web but it didn't stick to him.
"Poor, poor spider! BUMBLE PRIME CANNOT BE STOPPED!" Bee yelled charging at her and clawing her face and punching her chest. Shockwave transformed his left arm into a gun and fired at Airachnid.
"OW! WHY YOU!" Airachnid snarls but before she can act, Shockwave runs at her delivers a strong fist to the face knocking her towards Bee who grabbed her limbs and ripped them all straight off. Airachnid was thrown to the ground hard. Starscream used his claws to rip the webbing off of the trapped mechs while Soundwave kept Mirage standing. Shockwave saw this.
"MIRAGE!" Shockwave yelled.
"S-s-shockwave?" Mirage said weakily.
Mirage's condition made Shockwave go insane. He runs at the defenseless femme and attacks. Airachnid is viciously punched, kicked, slammed and clawed to death. But, before the final blow is struck, Bee taps his shoulder. Shockwave turns to him and widens his optic. Bumblebee reaches behind him and pulls up a huge gold hammer.
"Where did that come from?" Shockwave asked.
"You guys never payed any attention to what was connected to my back." Bee said.
"Oh...whoops?" Shockwave said.
"Anyways, this final blow should be made by...him!" Bee pointed to Clawswipe.
"Me?" Clawswipe said.
"Yes, want to do the honors?" Shockwave agreed.
Bee handed the hammer to him and a glow effect covered Clawswipe. He felt nearly as much power as Bumblebee had. He smirked as he walked towards Airachnid's critically destroyed body. Airachnid thought he was going to aim for her face. As Clawswipe raised the hammer over his target...he spoke first.
"Squashing a spider never felt so good!" He evily said.
He rammed the hammer down where her spark was. A blast of light engulfed the hallway. When it disappeared, everyone could see that Airachnid was finally dead and crushed to pieces. Everyone was about to cheer when they saw Optimus and Barricade coming towards them.
"Hey guys have you seen...oh so Airachnid's finally dead. Huh. Well, have you seen Dreadwing?" Barricade asked.
Just then Dreadwing contacted Optimus.
"Uh Boss Bot I would advise you all to evacuate now!" Dreadwing said from above the HQ.
"Why?" Optimus asked.
"I just placed a bunch of bombs and they are set to go off in 5 minutes. You got Mirage?"
"THEN GET THE FRAG OUT!"
All of them ran out but Soundwave and Starscream flew Mirage out. Once outside they found Dreadwing standing on top of a huge cliff waving at them. Optimus got to him first.
"So, how many bombs did you place?" Optimus asked.
"10...50...500!" Dreading finally said.
"How did-" Bee was cut off.
"I have my ways!" Dreadwing said. "Want to set them off now?"
"Yes please!" Optimus said.
Dreadwing pulls out his cell phone-like detonator and presses a button. In just 2 seconds an explosion filled the entire area. The size of it was about half the size of a nuclear explosion.
"WOO-HOO LOOK AT THAT SHIT!" Dreadwing yells at some point while they all escaped.
Back at base, Megatron, Knock Out and Sideways were happy to hear of their success. Mirage was sent straight to the med-bay. Later, Optimus spoke to everybody in the main control room.
"I just want to say how proud I am of my agents. You did your part and finally got rid of that spider. I thought we would never be able to destroy her spark. I especially want to thank Bumblebee for all the work he put in. We should all be happy to have a living relic living with us! And while Airachnid may be gone, we are still agents of B.O.O.S.T. in case others might need our help. We have accomplished a lot this month and we all deserve a big break." Optimus states. "As for you..." He looks over at Mirage. "How would you like to join the agency?" He asks.
"Absolutely!" Optimus said.
Mirage smiles and nods.
"Yes, I would be happy to join!"
"HOORAY!" Steve, Kenny and Clawswipe yell.
Randomly, Shockwave and Bee fist bump.
"Thanks again Bee!" Shockwave said.
"No problem!" Bee said.
Some point during the day, Ironhide was forced by Megatron and Optimus to apolagize to Mirage for fighting. Ironhide now respects Mirage for surviving a mech-napping by Airachnid.
Later that night, Bumblebee is, again, riding down the highway. Shockwave, Starscream, Soundwave and Barricade zoom past him and Soundwave plays rap music loudly. Bumblebee chuckles to himself. He was happy now. No drones...no beatings...no missions...no worries...just a new life as Bumble Prime. He continued down the highway with the air blowing nicely and the sounds of his engine humming.
The sequel has been made called Transformers Prime: Spy Recruit 2: Prime Force!
