Meanwhile on Earth
"They're ready to go?" Ask Bulkhead to the four humans "Yes we are, we already have everything ready." Answers nurse Darby which has a camping Backpack full of food, drinks, and two changes of cloths, as well the kids.
Bumblebee just says with a smile, "So let's go...Bulk transform and roll out! " And they all came out of there, but Jack asks, "The others know we're on our way?" Bee responds to the boy, "The other 'Bots know that we have made contact with you, but now I'm going to ask for a portal, we need to be in Cybertron in time." Raphael is curious, "on your planet there is no oxygen for humans to breathe." The Autobot understands immediately, "don't worry Raph, we have everything ready for all of you now." Raphael is more relieved to know everything as it should be.
Then just say, "Let's go, I'm pretty sure that Optimus is already among us." And depart into the desert.
June begins to feel something, a kind of positive aura and just says to Bee, "you know I think you're right." The mech in question is intrigued with the human's nurse words, "what do you mean nurse Darby?" She just says with a little smile, "women's intuition, that's all." Bumblebee doesn't know what to say but thinks, "Must be human stuff, that's all." And keep driving.
Maximillian is monitoring the screens and communications when hears Magnus's voice, "Maxi can you hear me?!" The femme replies, "loud and clear." Magnus informs, "we already have Optimus with us!" The femme smiled, "thanks Primus.
By the way what is the prognosis? " Question a little worried.
At the core of the planet.
Magnus listen his Sparkmate question via comlink while looking at Knockout, who quickly scans the Autobot Leader, and moments later turns to Magnus, "Sir, apparently he's healthy, their energon reserves are at a stable level, but is in deep stasis."
Magnus is pleased to hear Knockout's news, "Let's get him out of here." Orders, the former Decepticon turns to the other, "we're taking Prime... careful ok?" Predaking do exactly that.
At the Autobot base
Maximillian is very happy, she had heard all over the comlink, and turns to Ratchet, "make yourself useful and get the stuff ready to receive Optimus!" The other grunts because still shocked at the femme's answer, and she's not stupid, "Said something Ratchet?" He back the head, "nothing ... nothing Maximillian." She gets an expression more loaded, "That's what I thought, go and prepare the things ok?" And he nods, or he could be listen her again.
Shockwave says only, "You don't forgive anything Maximillian." She just says the former Decepticon, "he got in my private life, and I told him something he didn't like." Shockwave watch for the femme, "Was the most logical decision to make." She nods, "Yeah, maybe learn how to measure your words next time."
Both hear a noise and go see what's going on ...
See that the gate is open, then sees Bumblebee and Bulkhead, and meet both, "any news Maximillian?" She notices that the humans that she knows so well are with them but respond smiling, "are already on the way to the base, Prime is in good health but still in stasis.
I asked Ratchet to prepare everything to receive him properly. " Bumblebee is pleased to hear the good news, "how wonderful, by the way... the humans can breathe in here without problems? " Question, and a answer is given, "at ease Bee, everything is in place, the entire base is prepared for humans, they can walk around here without any problems, we take some precautions when we go out to the outside, we have something to prevent depressurization of the site near the gates of the base." When teenagers and Jack's mother hear that they got out of their vehicles.
"Finally we can stretch our legs." They say, and then the two Mechs transform in to their robot modes.
The humans surrounded Maximillian who crouches to their level, "I see you haven't changed." Says ... Nurse Darby look at the femme, "you're more beautiful and radiant Maximillian." The femme just shrugs, and Darby sees a glow on Maxi optics, "not bad Maximillian." The femme realized immediately what the human female meant.
Moments later appears Ratchet, "Nurse Darby how long!" She turns to the CMO, "the same I tell you Doctor." When says that rolls up the sleeves, "Doctor tell me what needs to be done?" Ratchet notices that the human had entered in Nurse mode, "Your help is welcome, at least to monitor Prime." She smiles, "nothing would give me greater pleasure."
The teenagers saw Shockwave and Starscream, and Miko starts cracking the bones of the hands and WheelJack realizes, "Going into Wrecker mode Miko?" She nods, "Yeah ... There are two Decepticons." Shockwave realizes, and slowly approaches the human teenager, Raphael recoils but the former Decepticon crouches, "don't be afraid little human, it is illogical to fear something that no longer makes sense.
The war is over! " Raphael looks at the one eyed ex-Decepticon, and look at his hand that is in front of him, "Don't fear me young one, I think theme have a lot in common." Miko begins again but Wheeljack just says, "Miko he is no longer our enemy." She looks at Shockwave which had Raphael on his shoulder and completely at ease with him, the girl feels that the ex-Decepticon look to her and she responds, "I'm sorry ... it was instinct." The one-eyed Scientist responds, "it is logical to react like you reacted human, apology accepted."
The Japanese teenager smiles looking for both, they begin to discuss mathematical formulas, knows that Raphael found someone to talk about the topics he like.
However the alarm sounds, and everyone is aware, and hear a statement, "we're entering the base with Prime, is everything ready?" Maximillia was on the screen answering, "Yes, everything is in order, we also have the humans with us, they are eager to hear news about Prime." Magnus is satisfied with what he just heard.
"I'm glad to hear that my beloved." And turned off the comlink.
When they arrived, Prime was placed on a berth, and Ratchet began to examine him in detail and just says with a lighter expression, "according to my scanners, Optimus is in top form, just in a deep stasis, is only a matter of time until online himself."
Everyone gets a little easier, "Well the scanners that I did on the ground told me the same thing." Remarks Knockout, "and are way better than yours!" And the two begin to looking to each other, while the others laugh at a good laugh at the expense of the two.
Maximillian met with Magnus, "I'm glad it all worked out for the best." He only responds, "thanks to Predaking, he step with Optimus's signal, and it was he who guided us to the core.
Ordered to his Predacons to be attentive to any threat outside the core of Cybertron, the Insecticons could attack. " She looks in Predaking's direction, "I know that he gave with Prime's Pulsations.
Was discussed, I'm sure you've heard our conversation. " The Mech in question approaches of Maximillian, "Magnus, Maximillian." The femme approaches holding the mech's hands, "I appreciate everything Predaking, including the fact that you watched for our safety during this rescue." The look of the Predacon Leader softens, "Maximillian, I did my best so that we could make it, after all we are friends!"
Miko looks at the Predacon Leader going towards him, getting fascinated telling, "totally rad!" Predaking doesn't know what to say.
Humans are fatigued from the trip, Bumblebee noticed and decided to set them into the facilities that were prepared for them.
"I just hope you are comfortable." Jack nods to his friend, "thank you Bee, if there is any change in Prime's state let us." The Mech responds, "sure!"
A day has passed.
Everything is in complete silence, and a lonely soul rises from the table, looking at all sides.
"I'm alive ... but how?!" He only sees a light followed by a voice "Optimus Prime, you sacrificed yourself for Cybertron, now you will have a second chance to live in peace among your friends ..." The Autobot Leader gets surprised with such a revelation, "Never forget what you learned while you were between us." Prime closes his optics, "I won't." And the light's gone, making total silence.
Prime look again around, when hears behind ...
"Optimus?" He turns seeing Maximillian with fluid in eyes, embracing him warmly, "you came back ... I miss you so much!" He returns the embrace, "Oh, it's good to be with you, Maximillian you're like my sparkling!" She continues with her arms around the Autobot Leader.
"What's going on?"
Says a voice very familiar, "Magnus?" The Mech in question is astonished, "P...Prime? From what I can see you look good! " The Autobot Leader look at Magnus, "I'm here to stay." Then look for Maximillian, "right now I'm going to steal your SparkMate, I have a lot of time to make up for lost time." Barely ends talking the human teenagers and June Darby run towards the Prime, "Optimus glad you're well! " And latch onto the mech's leg.
June outlines a smile, "I'm glad that you are alright." He crouches looking to the 4 humans, "Yes." Then look for June, "thank you for being here." The nurse just says, "you're my friend, and when I heard you were alive, I asked to go with the other Autobots." Optimus liked the nurse answer replying, "thank you nurse Darby." The human nurse looks at Optimus and Maximillian, "you must have a lot to talk about." He nods, "Yeah we have, it was a long time offline, and without her." June close your eyes, "Yes ... Maxi is like a daughter to you, Optimus. " Maximillian just says, "Yes, I missed him a lot." And put the hand on her chest looking at the human, "But ..." And June tells when sees Maxi's hand on her chest, "Felt that you weren't alone right? Feel that hope is the last thing to die. " The femme nods, "Yeah ... not accepted fully the disappearance of Optimus." June says, "I'm glad you haven't lost the hope Maxi." Magnus overhears both and only talk to Prime "Sir don't put obstacles , chat and take a tour of the planet." Prime puts his hand on Ultra-Magnus's shoulder, "thank you Magnus, your gesture means so much to me." June sees the progress of action outlining a smile, is happy by Maximillian having someone who loves so much back.
However Miko is very impatient and yell out loud for all to hear, including the former Decepticons that are among the Autobots;
"What we are waiting for?!Let's celebrate!" The present saw Miko with a electric guitar, "we're going to rock this joint!" Was general laughter.
"I agree with Miko, we need to celebrate your return." Optimus looks awestruck to Ultra Magnus, "that's not you Magnus, why?" The vice commander responds a little embarrassed, "it's not every day that you back to life!" The Autobot Leader is satisfied with the explanation but much admired with Magnus which is always so stoic.
"Well I think Optimus embarrassed my mate, but in a good way." Check out Maximillian holding Optimus's hand, he is happy to be back and among the Autobots.
"What are we waiting for? We have a party to prepare "Remembered Bulkhead, which look for Shockwave," Today you won't escape, Shocky always in that boring lab, you're going to help. " The one-eyed Mech just says, "of course ... let's do it, is logic demands it." Bulk rubs his hands with glee, knowing that all you don't want to miss the rare opportunity to have fun while drink high-grade energon.
And all come together, humans and Transformers, to prepare a great celebration that promises to be quite promising, after all Optimus deserves.
And as usual the preparations of the party take the rest of the morning, everything is arranged including food and drinks for humans, June had predicted that there would be a feast in honour of Optimus and tried to compose a table with food and drinks for the teens and for her.
In relation to the Transformers, no one knew how much High Grade was acquired, is a closely guarded secret by Ratchet and someone little accustomed to parties...Predaking who is anxious to have fun with all the friends, and at the party wouldn't miss energon for all present Transformers.
At the right time all gathered in that party, and there are music courtesy of Miko, and where there is music there is also dance, and they do it just nicely.
Miko is the center of attention, she plays very well and everyone loves her way in lighten the mood of the party, using her musical tastes, but also plays another kind of music.
Conviviality is healthy, all eat and drink without ever arm fuss, but the middle of the party two souls took the chance to seek a quieter environment, by going outside to contemplate the starry sky of Cybertron.
"Magnus doesn't get jealous Maximillian?" Question Optimus, the femme is admired, "No, you asked for permission." Optimus laughs, "Yes."
"I missed all this, Maximillian." She lowers the head, "and I missed your support Optimus, you have always been my mentor, grabbed me at the right time, and it's thanks to you that I became what I am today." Optimus understands perfectly what she means, "I apologize for leaving you so abruptly, Maximillian, but had to give life to our planet." She knows it's true but continues to hear, "Primus saw this and decided to give me a chance, but I did a spiritual journey before being rebuilt and reactivated." She caresses his face, showing a great love and tenderness by the leader, who is like her father.
"Now we will try to make up for lost time, Optimus, will try to talk a little bit every day."
Behind only hear,
"I thought you were here." Both turn, "Ultra Magnus, here?" The Vice Commander just says, "Yes, I just wanted to relax a little." Optimus looks at him and Maximillian, "thanks for ensure her safety Magnus." And then smiled at both of them, "you two make a great couple." Magnus just says, "thank you Optimus." Maximillian just says to Prime, "Now you've come back from the dead, never let you go Optimus." The mech says with only a lighter expression, "I know Maximillian." Then walks away saying, "I'm going to leave you alone." Ultra Magnus disagrees, "No Prime, now let's enjoy the party that was prepared for you."
Optimus is speechless, after all he can't disappoint who worked so hard to organize a party just for him.
When he came inside the base, joined to the humans and Transformers, after all he needs to open up a little more, since there was a time when he couldn't do it, but being away made him see how he lost certain things before all this...so instead of being so stoic, decides be a more open Leader.
Then hears a whistle, watching Jack with a drink in his hand, "Let's do a toast guys." Says the human teenager for everyone, Optimus asks with a mixture of curiosity, "Toast to what Jack Darby?" A hoarse voice is heard;
"Peace." Replies Starscream, another voice joins in, "friendship!" Another voice, but more cultured responds,
When Knockout look, "logic?! Only you Shockwave. " The boy Jack just says, lifting the glass looking for Prime, "here's to the future."
Everyone's looking for that human boy, who has been through a lot in his life, June and Arcee approaches him with a smile, heard in unison by lifting the glasses;
"The Future." And look at the imposing figure of Optimus, and beside him is Magnus and Maximillian, the femme just says out loud,
She knows that hope is the last to die, was that feeling that made her believe that Optimus would return one day.
Optimus looks for all the present saying;
"Thank you for everything." And was applauded due that simple phrase.
The party lasted until afternoon, and each one has returned to their quarters and humans would only return home the next day.
Maximillian and Magnus are together to contemplate the stars from the window of their chambers , "How do you feel my love?" Question Magnus, "Happy my love." Answer Maximillian, smiling, Magnus felt her cuddling on him, "thank Primus." She continues, "I'm happy for Optimus to be among us again." He knows it's true, and they know that they both can be more time together, Optimus is here to stay.
Both are cuddling into each other, until eventually go into stasis, for the last few days have been a lot of work and the party helped wear them even more, but at least both know that Optimus is back and with a new energy to lead them to a better future.
