"Um... I like getting a friend's help." Bee looks down at the much smaller bot quizzically.
If it was any other time, Rock would probably all 'oooo' over the bigger robot, but right now there where more important things to worry about. "I don't have.... any friends that could help with this, I don't think."
That gets a frown of concern as she hunkers down to try and get to his level. "Is it something you can talk about to somebody you don't know?"
Then she braces herself slightly as a little wisp of a mint green Cybertonian suddenly hurries up and sticks to her back with the help of magnets.
The sparkling is hauled around and absently hugged as she waits for Mega's reply.
Rock stares at the sparkling as he thinks on it before shaking his head. "No one would understand."
understand?" She remembers a similar conversation with her commander once and tries the same question that he asked.
Rock blinks at that. "More then anyone else," he responds slowly.
"What...." She winces and unsticks a magnetic hand from her chestplate. "What'll happen if you don't make the choice?"
"That's not really possible. I either do something or don't. That's the choice."
"Will somebody... die, if you don't do it?" Bee sooths the sparkling as it wriggles and tries to run away.
"I was told that it might hurt someone if I didn't do it. But I don't know if doing it would keep them from getting hurt either. And there's the chance that something might happen to me if I do it." He sighs, rubbing at his face. He doesn't want anybody to get hurt, but what if he did it and it didn't help and they both got hurt. How would that help?
"Would he get hurt worse if you didn't do it than if you did?" She finally sits down and looks at her daughter to see what the little being wants, only to be greeted by a smile and a sudden cessation of trying to escape.
"I don't know. He could get hurt the same amount no matter what I do. I really wish I had a third option."
Rock's been staring at the little thing for a while now and he has to ask. "Who is that?" And what were they doing? Playing?
Bee frowns, but then blinks and looks down again, her manner going nervous and uncertain. "Um, she's my... uh, I'm her mom."
Rock doesn't get the nervousness and tilts his head. Why be uncertain about someone you'd built. Maybe there was something wrong with it back on her world? Well, what ever the reason, he's not going to let it bother him and smiles. "She's very climby."
"Yeah." She smiles herself and is rewarded with a massive grin from the sparkling. "She's got her dad's magnets, and likes to use them."
"What's her name? Oh, and um, I haven't asked yours either, hehe. I'm Rock."
"She... hasn't got one yet, but I'm Bumblebee." She smooths her hand over her daughter's head and is rewarded with a small purr.
"Oh." He finds that to be a little weird but shrugs it off. "Nice to meet both of you." He grins at the purr.
She sees that in his expression and looks a bit apologetic. "We call her Baby. But I want to find something really nice, or let her dad name her."
"It's okay. I guess I'm just used to people having a name ready before."
"Well, she was kind of a surprise. And then I was too busy trying not to black out and fall over at the wrong time to think of names." Bee looks embarrassed.
The sparkling, meanwhile, is wriggling again, she wants down to go see Rock.
Okay, now Bee gets to have a really odd look from Rock. "A surprise?" And what? Had someone else built her?
"Yeah." Really embarrassed Bee. "Um, her dad and I weren't trying to make a new spark when she happened."
See a Bee do the Cybertronian version of blushing and looking anyplace but at Rock or the baby.
Rock is only a kid; this goes right over his head and he continues to stare in a confused fashion.
She facepalms. "The thinking part of us doesn't really get built. It comes from the Allspark, most of the time. I got broken pretty badly, and someone hooked me up to the Allspark. Then I found out I had two sparks. One was her."
Leaving out alll the embarrassing parts....((tmi?))
