|Rock looks tired and slightly desperate as he searches the Nexus…|

"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."
