There's a swish and a slight flash, and suddenly a leggy mint green Cybertronian that's all of six foot tall is standing in the Nexus intently studying a PINpoint. She looks up when she hears the sounds of the Nexus and blinks, then turns and scrambles under the nearest Cybertronian sized couch.
There's a pause during which the only thing that can be seen of her is a set of large blue optics shining in the darkness under the couch, and then every screen in the area starts displaying images of children asking for mommy or daddy, or shots of Bumblebee and Jazz from the Transformers' movie.
The question seems rather plain, eh?
You are feeling:
((*is, apparently, afflicted with the Stupid today* Terribly sorry, I should have read that closer.))
Victor sat down under the couch. (IT WAS LIKE THE COOLEST FORT EVER, she could bring an armchair
down there, practically...)
"Hey, kiddo, y' remember me?"
Honey trills beeps, then crawls over and snuggles close with her head on Victor's knee.
She patted the young 'bot's head. "Now, we c'n wait here all snug an' sound."
Honey purrs, hugging the PINpoint to her chest with one hand as the other curiously fingers Victor's clothes. Now that she's with a friend she's happy again, though the appeal for Mommy and Daddy continues on the screens.
Pet-pet-pet, and a relieved smile. See? Everything was going to be oh-kay! "'M sure one of 'em'll show up."
The sparkling rolls onto her back, still using Victor for a pillow, then reaches up with one hand and gently... so gently! beeps her on the nose.
There's a very small jeep wandering around at the moment (why he's in vehicle-mode is better not asked). He catches the movement and follows out of curiousity and the 'well, why not?' kind of reasoning that his team-mates grumble about.
Ransack halts a little way in front of the couch, just as the screens start their display. He flicks his sensors at them in surprise, then 'hrm's to himself.
"Hello!" he calls. "Are you all right?"
Unhappy beeping is his only reply, but those big blue optics turn his way as Honey wonders about the little
It doesn't sound like any Minicon dialect he knows, but Ransack responds with a rapid sequence of whistle-beeps in greeting, both out of habit and to see if the stranger recognises it.
There's several moments' silence, and then a cautious crawling sound.
Honey blinks up at him from where she's laying on her belly, then whimpers and hides her face in her arms.
The Minicon transforms and crouches by her, trying not to be all startling and scary. He's been told off for it before. "Hey there," he says soothingly. "You're lost, aren't you?"
She nods without lifting her head, and the appeals for Mommy and Daddy on the screens grow a little louder.
Looks like Ata's LOL's finally worn off... That's gonna make it hard for Honey to recognize her.
Quietly, she wanders up to the couch, leans down and peers under it.
"Hey, don't be scared, kiddo..."
Those big optics look back at her, very much projecting scared baby.
She smiles a bit, trying to reassure her.
"It's okay, I'm sure your mom and dad will find you."
Smiles are nice.... Her 'eyebrows' go up and she offers her own version of a smile, then beeps and turns her head to look at the nearest monitor.
They are, at that. Last time she saw Jazz, he was carrying Honey.
"I've seen them around," she tells her.
More beeping and a sigh, then Honey reaches up to her. Pickame?
Arcee's not really sure where she is, or why, but when she see the youngster she freezes, then stares. A quick scan....
The 9 foot tall Autobot sat. Hard. She couldn't believe it.
Then she blinked and shook her head slightly, standing shakily.
"Hello," she said gently, stepping forward, looking at the screens and shaking her head before concentrating on the girl. "Are you lost, little one?"
Honey peeks at her from under the couch, then beeps and withdraws as shyness hits.
"Wait!" Arcee gest down and carefully slides forward, replying with her own beeps and whistles, trying to tell the youngster she meant not harm. "I'm a friend. I know your..." she stopped and blanched inwardly. "I know Bumblebee and Jazz."
Honey hugs the PINpoint and looks at her, then hesitantly holds out one three fingered hand and whimpers.
"Shh," she said, gently touching her hand. "It's alright, sweet one, I'm here to help you. We'll get you home."
"Oh, no. Heya kiddo. Remember me?"
Froooown. But then she turns onto her side and reaches toward him tentatively.
