Time of Dying

765 25 6

"On the ground I lay,

Motionless in pain,

I can see my life flashing before my eyes,

Did I fall asleep?

Is this all a dream?

Wake me up, I'm living a nightmare,

Bumblebee was Optimus' last hope of getting the Star Saber. He had the mighty sword in his servos and jumped for it. Over the Omega Lock, and the Cyber-matter. He was going to make it! 

Megatron and Optimus were fighting down by the Lock, when Bumblebee jumped. Megatron noticed this and quickly shook off the Prime, charged up his fusion cannon, and fired at the Scout. 

Bumblebee had nowhere to go. He was already in mid-jump  when the first of Megatron's blasts hit him in the spark chamber, and the second, and the third.

I will not die (I will not die)

I will survive,

The Scout's optics were flickering, his spark chamber was torn apart, now he was falling. No one could believe what they were seeing. Bumblebee was going offline. Every one was shocked. Even the Decepticons. Megatron had just offlined the Autobots young, and brave Scout. The mech was still part sparkling. Not very old at all. How could Megatron do this?!

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

I feel alive, when you're beside me,

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

In my time of dying,

Optimus was really angry now. "NOOOO!" He yelled as he fought Megatron with even greater force than before, his anger getting the best of him. The Prime punched Megatron down, but little did he know, that's where the Dark Star Saber was lying! Megatron grabbed for it and released it's blast attack, which hit Optimus in the chestplate.

On this bed I lay,

Losing everything,

I can see my life passing me by,

Was it all too much?

Or just not enough?

Wake me up, I'm living a nightmare,

Optimus fell backwards, over the edge of the Lock. He managed to grasp onto the side of the Lock, with one servo. Megatron walked up, Dark Star Saber in servo. Raising the sword he said, "Prepare to join your Scout in the Allspark!"

I will not die (I will not die)

I will survive,

"MEGATRON!" An unknown voice yelled. The warlord turned, and was met with a familiar face, and the Star Saber. All Megatron felt was pain in his spark chamber, so he looked down and realized that the Star Saber was through his spark, and none other than the Autobot Scout, was holding the massive weapon. "You took my voice. You will never rob anyone, of anything, ever again."

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

I feel alive, when you're beside me,

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

In my time of dying,

"Lord Megatron! No!" Starscream shouted, dropping to his knees. Megatron could feel his spark going out. The warlord knew he didn't have much time, so he said, "Starscream. I want you to know...I...love you...son." Megatron's optics finally dimmed, and went offline, he was no more. "Son?" Starscream whispered. "All these stellar cycles...and he never told me."

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

I feel alive, when you're beside me,

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

In my time of dying,

"I will avenge you father!" Starscream yelled, prepared to take flight and fire on the Autobots. "Starscream! Do not be a fool!" Shockwave said from behind the Seeker, grabbing him and, holding him back. "Curse you and your logic!" Starscream yelled to the cyclops as he dragged Starscream through a door.

"Bumblebee!" Ratchet exclaimed.

"Your voice!" Arcee added.

"My voice? What are you-my voice! Ratchet, I got my pipes back!" Bumblebee said excitedly, running up to the medic and hugging him. "Yes! Yes, we've noticed!"

Of course, the Scout was excited that he got his voice back. But something bothered him. 'Megatron, was Starscream's father?  I hate to say it but, I kinda feel bad for killing his father like that. But he looked shocked when I killed Megatron. I guess Megatron must have never told him.'

Afterwards, the Autobots celebrated their victory over the Decepticons. Then, they left Earth, and headed toward Cybertron. Their home. They could finally go home.

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

I feel alive, when you're beside me,

I will not die, I'll wait here for you,

In my time of dying."
