Dark shadows cast across the interior of the Nemesis as I flew down to land on the cold, hard floor. Megatron and The Fallen were there, in a deep, important discussion.
"Sir, sorry to interrupt," I said as I approached the two.
"Starscream," Megatron growled. "What brings you here? I thought you sent Barricade to bring the Hybrid."
"About that..." I reached my hand back to scratch my head. "Steelfire was destroyed."
"What?" Megatron yelled. He slammed a hand on his armrest and stood up.
"Well, you see, we didn't expect the girl to know about her...differences that set her apart from the humans," I said, trying to explain. "Barricade reported that she could fly."
"That's absurd," Megatron raged. "I made it so that when she gets close to the first Spark, her real self will activate, but that is supposed to be impossible! How in Cybertron did she manage to do that?" He slammed his fist down again, then turned to me.
"I need you to send all the Decepticons we have!" Megatron demanded. "If that doesn't work, then I will confront her myself." Then he pointed at me. "Tell them not to destroy her, but to take her back here. We need her to believe we are the good and the Autobots are the bad."
"Yes, Megatron," I nodded, then hastily transformed and flew off. Soon, I landed on the other side of the Nemesis, where the other Decepticons were at.
"Blackout," I called out as I landed, "Carry Scorponok, Ravage and Laserbeak to the Hybrid's coordinates. We need all the stealthy fighters we can get. Remember, do not destroy the girl, just bring her back to Megatron. We need to have her believe that the Autobots are bad, and that they are going to destroy the planet. Megatron's commands."
Blackout nodded to me and turned to go get the Decepticons ordered.
I rubbed my hands together, a sinister smile playing on my metallic face. We were going to have an absolutely fun time.
The school was now in view as I raced towards it with my tire-feet. I skidded to a halt in front of the steps leading up to the double doors. I felt my feet turn back to normal and my vision click back to normal. I had to blink a couple times to get my eyes adjusted.
As I was putting on my tennis shoes, I heard my name being called out by someone familiar.
"Gale!" I smiled and looked up at him as he rode up to me on his skateboard.
Gale's grin faded when he saw my face. "You look really tired."
"I know," I rolled my eyes. "I had an adventure last night."
"I can see that." His eyes traveled down my exposed arms. "Since when did you work out?"
"That's part of what happened last night," I chuckled, then shuddered at the thought of fifteen minutes of excruciating pain.
Just then, the five minute bell rung. "I'll tell you at lunch, okay?"
Gale nodded as I headed inside. I suddenly felt aware that eyes were landing on me, looking at my arms and barely visible six-pack seen through my dark pink tank top. I straightened my shoulders and held my chin up. No eyes would intimidate me, not today.
I got to my locker and took out my necessary books. Man, do I hate school.
The first few periods went well. I didn't miss anything from the day before. It was the classes that were after lunch did I leave.
My stomach growled as I headed to my locker after my class before lunch. Putting my books away, I bent over slightly so that I didn't have to suffer so much of the pain. Then I remembered something.
Taking a small, glowing blue container out of my jean pocket, I studied the bottle. It was the energon that Optimus gave to me. I remember putting it in my pocket before I left the house.
I slid the bottle back into my pocket and casually made my way up the stairs to the cafeteria. I needed to remember to drink it, because my parts won't work if I don't.
As soon as I slipped into the cafeteria, I saw Gale leaning against a wall. "Gale!" I waved my hand to beckon him over to where I was standing.
Gale strode on over. "Okay, what happened?"
"Well, we can't discuss it here, dummy," I said matter-of-factly. "We need to go somewhere quiet."
There was a pause, but then Gale said, "Hall Z. Let's go."
We walked out of the room and down a couple of halls. Soon, we came upon the dark and dank ambiance of Hall Z.
"Okay, spill," Gale said as he crossed his arms and leaned up against a rusty wall.
I had to wrack my mind for the beginning of the story. "I woke up last night, at about one, to spasms. Like, really painful spasms. I crawled myself over to the bathroom and looked in the mirror. My body parts were glowing blue! I could see my bones every time a spasm would hit!"
Gale frowned. "So when a spasm hit, you could see your bones?" He shook his head. "Weird."
"Yeah. And then the pain went on for about fifteen minutes until it finally stopped. I mean, I was sweaty all over and exhausted like you wouldn't believe." I sighed. "When I looked in the mirror a second time, these muscles appeared." I gestured to my arms.
"Weird yet again. Why would you just have muscles for no apparent reason?"
"Actually, Optimus said that they were probably needed to keep up with the weight of my metal parts," I explained.
"You talked to Optimus again?" Gale gasped, his voice slightly raised.
"Shh!" I put a finger over my mouth to shush him. "And yes, I did talk to him. Bumblebee took me to where he and the other Autobots are staying. Oh yeah, there are more of them!"
"More Autobots? This is insane..." Gale rubbed the palms of his hands into his eyes.
"Yeah, I thought there were only five as well," I confessed. "But anyway, I met all of them, and I also figured out two new things that I can do!"
"Really? Show me!"
"Okay... I don't know how to do the first one, but I'll just tell you. My iris's glow."
"Like the Autobots' do?" Gale tipped his head to one side.
"Yeah. I think they come on when I've activated something, but I'll show you the second one so my irises will click to blue."
Focusing on my feet, I willed them to change. I suddenly felt tingles run up and down my legs as my feet shifted form. The glowing tires finished transforming after a couple seconds of listening to the metal plates being put into place. I also felt my eyes click on to blue.
"What the-?" Gale widened his eyes. "That's amazing! They're like rollerskates built in to your feet."
"Cool, right?" I looked up into his eyes.
"Woah..." Gale started to back up, looking wary.
"What? What's wrong?" I reached my hands up to touch my face.
"No I'm not!"
"Yes you are!"
I started getting worried. I didn't feel anything changing... I turned around to look into a sliver of mirror that was lying up against the wall.
Then I saw it.
I was changing.
