Transformers:The New Recruit17Ratchet just couldn't figure out how those Autocons had did it. Here, sitting on his medical table, was a full-fledged Autobot! But it wasn't! Ratchet couldn't get his head around how... THIS was supposed to be a human! Things like this weren't meant to be. SHOULDN'T be! It was unnatural.
Optimus walked up to Ratchet. "Is everything going smoothly?" he asked, looking concerned and serious as usual.
Ratchet slowly shook his head. "From what I can see she's 100% Cybertronian, energy and all! I just don't understand-"
"Have you checked the spark's level of activity?" Ania interrupted, walking around the corner.
Ratchet widened his optical sensors. "I... Will do that right now!" he said, rushing to his spark scanner. Taking it up in his hands, he turned it on, and pointed it at the human bot's chest.
Transformers:The New Recruit16Chapter Nine
Ania ran to follow her. "Wait!" she said, "I think I know how to fix you!"
The human bot stopped, and turned around. "How?"
Ania gestured to her chest. "Every Cybertronian has a spark inside... our spark of life. With humans... it seems to be different. So what is inside your spark chamber? If you come with me, I can help you turn back to what you once were," she said, looking at the human bot with kindness and honesty.
The bot gave much hesitation, taking a step twords Ania, and then back again a few times, a battle going on in her mind. But soon she realized that if she ran, she would have no where to go, since she didn't know even where she was. And even if she did find her family... how would they recognize her? They would scream and run away. She was a freak. And this red metal girl standing before her might just be her only hope. Atasi looked at the bot and nodded. "I will go with you," she said.
Ania nodded as well. "Follow me," she said, looking at Virus. "I can't
Transformers:The New Recruit15The metal lady yet again put the sword by Atasi's throat. "Now, go... move some of those rocks over there to that tree right next to the ship, human bot," she sneered, pushing Atasi toward the pile of rocks. Stumbling and staring at how tall she was compared to the trees and rocks around her in fear, Atasi tremblingly lifted the rocks one by one, and carried them over to the tree the metal lady had been talking about.
If Atasi hadn't been so scared at that moment, she would have been staring in wonder at how she could now carry rocks bigger than what size she used to be.
Virus smiled, happy at how effichiantly the human bot was doing the meaningless task she had assigned her. Fear did work well. But as she looked upon the terrified bot, memories flooded into her processor of a terrified Ania crouching inside the secret compartment their mother had left them on that fateful day.
Virus had always been the child second in her mother's mind. Ania... she had been the spoiled one, always get
The Halloween CatDigging through the stodgy trash, I found and quickly ate a piece of leftover hamburger from a family's dinner. Jumping down from the trash can, I landed on my black paws on the grassy ground. Looking around at the dark night, surrounding me like an inevitable blanket, I thought about how much more food I needed to find so that I could fill my feline tummy. My sister Zoe, a demure white kitten, jumped down from the can beside the one I had searched, and licked her chops.
"Hey! Anastasia, I found a plethora of meatballs and spaghetti strings in that can," she said, smiling and showing little white teeth. "Yummy."
My other sister, Aurora, a cute orange tabby, and the youngest sister, came running from around the side of the house.
"Those human kids dressed up in the costumes are coming!" She screeched, stopping in a huff in front of me. "We've got to get out of here for your sake!"
"Aww, it's OK, Rory, the Trick-or-Treaters never come BEHIND the house. It seems to be a rule in human cour
Transformers:The New Recruit14Waking up back in her cell, Atasi opened her eyes slowly. What had happened? What had those big metal people done to her? Looking around the cell, she realized that it was not as big as it used to be, and yet it was the same cell. Shakily, she raised a hand to her face, and froze as if paralyzed. Her hand... it was not flesh anymore. Shaking once more, and crying out, Atasi looked at the rest of her body. She had become one of them.
Virus sat in her room once more, smiling wickedly at how successful her experiment had been. Steepleing her fingers, she thought about how to control the human... bot... thing. After all, since the humans were not originally from Cybertron, her Dark Energon mind-control technique would not work. As realization dawned over her, she smiled even wider. Of course. It would be even easier to control the humans than it was to control Optimus... she could simply use the power of fear.
Sitting out on the ledge of a cliff, looking out at the beautiful orange and gol
