TFP: Surprise! (Chapter XI: The Devil You Know...)
Lauren grunted, unable to breath, "R-Ryler... p-please let me-GO!"
He set her down, "Why didn't you tell us those stories were real?"
"And why did you tell them Arcee and I are dating?!" growled Jack.
Lauren gulped, "What? I never said that!"
Sonya pulled out the journal Lauren had lent her to read, "It says here that Jack was hit by some sort of thing that switch his and a con's body, then the con like-got himself killed in Jack's body, so Jack stayed a cybretronian, and he and Arcee get together."
Lauren turned red, "Uh..." She looked at Jack, "I-I don't remember that... but-what ever you do-don't tell Cee!"
"Come on, Lauren!" Raph told her, "We need to tell them the plan so we can hit the road. We don't have much time."
Lauren sighed, touching her head, it was burning again, and she felt like at any moment she would keel over. "You explain it to them, Raph... sorry-I need to sit down. You think we could toss Ryler and Sonya in anywhere?"
He nodded, "Yeah, we'll add them to your team
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter X: MECHed...)
"Do you know who we are?"
"You are Silas, but more to the point you all are MECH..." Lauren replied, trying to appear stern, to the point, but also diplomatic.
"Then why would a friend of the autobots simply... step out into the open?" questioned Silas. "Aren't you afraid of being kidnapped?"
Lauren grinned, "Please... I have nothing to fear of you nor the decepticons. The funny thing is-Starscream asked me the same question. But all of that is beside the point-I wanted to speak to you."
Silas stopped two meters in front of her, "Then speak."
Lauren breathed, "Mech and the autobots are in the same boat at the moment. You share a common goal."
"What might that be?" asked Silas.
"Returning to the world you came from. I don't care how strong MECH stands right now, you need allies, and the bots are the best you are going to get," Lauren muttered.
Silas grinned, "And were I to agree to this?"
Lauren noticed her words would be much like what Optimus would say-in a way, that was comforting. "
TFP: Surprise!(Chapter IX: Prime vs Human-girl)
"Rachet has given new rendezvous coordinates. They are in the country... outside of Bryan."
Lauren hadn't spoken for a decent amount of time... she had been thinking, pondering a number of things. One of which was how her online social page had all of her information on it... and if the bots could access it-so could the decepticons. That menat her family could be in great danger.
"Are you certain you are uninjured?" repeated Optimus.
"Why do you ask?" Lauren muttered.
"Because it was only yesterday that you would not awaken from a blow to the head, and we were forced to seek human assistance," replied Optimus.
"Its not me I'm worried about. Optimus, just give it to me straight... is my family safe?"
Before he had even answered her, she knew the response. His long pause was dead obvious, "Not anymore."
Lauren held the matrix shard, "I'm not going... going to see them for a while, am I?"
Optimus was contemplating how to respond.
"My family-I-I'm not going to be able to go home now, am I?
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter IIX: MIA...)
Raph and Rachet gaped at the readings being displayed. The second set of brain waves was identical to a single autobots... Optimus Prime.
"That isn't possible... is it, Rachet?" Raph asked.
Rachet blinked, "W-well... we are in a different universe entirely. So it is possible, but I'm not understanding-how."
"Well Optimus's set doesn't seem to actually be conscious... its more like-an echo," commented Raph.
"Still, this just flew beyond my understanding. Is there any way to tell how?" Rachet picked up Lauren's laptop, "Lauren recieved all the information off of this device, could it-?"
Raph accepted the laptop, and opened it up, "Password? Uh-lets try 'Optimus Prime'."
"Nope," muttered Rachet.
"Wait, if she has Optimus's brainwaves in her skull, maybe she has his password too. Lets try 'Iacon-Relic03'," mused Raph.
Rachet eyed him, "How would you know Optimus's password, Raphael?"
Raph gulped, "Uh-well-I'll explain later, I'm in. It looks like she has the majority of her-no-wait, look,
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter VII: Latency...)
Jack watched Lauren's heart rate fluctuate over and over again. Beneath her her eyelids her eyes from from direction to direction. Her temperature was 103.17, and continued to vary.
Miko sighed, "This is so boring."
"Miko! Jack growled, "Lauren won't wake up because Knockout and Breakdown attacked her! We've never been hurt, the Autobots have always come through, can you imagine what she was feeling?!"
"Hungry?" asked Miko.
"Why would she be--?!"
Miko stared at him, "I meant-are you hungry, Jack?"
"Oh... considering we haven't eaten anything since last night and here it is three?" Jack nodded, "Yeah, but seriously, Miko she must have been-"
Jack looked at Lauren, "There she goes again... that must be one horrible dream."
"Meh," Miko muttered.
There was a knock on the door, before Melissa Courage walked in, "Sorry I'm late, kiddos. I'm Mrs. Courage." She set her purse down, and walked over with a pizza, "I spoke on the phone... to one of you..."
Jack stood, "Yeah, I'm
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter VI: Within...)
Lauren had run to the closest gas station, people were running towards the explosion, and like a coward, Lauren had just run away. She walked into the bathroom, set her back pack down, and looked in the mirror. There was a scrape on her lip, a cut at the top of her head, and a thin layer of brick dust coated her from head to toe. Lauren quickly washed her face, doctored her cuts, and tried to dust herself off. It was only 06:34 by the time she had walked out of the gas station, and within that time, strange-looking men had begun blocking all visible paths to blinn. "Scrap! Are those marines?" Lauren ran over, but was stopped by a man in a suit. "Hey!"
"The college is closed today, ma'am. Your absences will not count against you."
"What gives, Mr..." Lauren began.
"I am Agent Jason Woods," he said, "And Blinn college was bombed early this morning, we are investigating to make sure it was the only one."
Suuure... Lauren crossed her arms, "What about the school thats right by it. The high
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter V: What a Knock-Down...)
Lauren's left eyebrow twitched twice over, as Miko and Jack leaned in closer to her and Raph's screens, she growled, "So... Raph, do you ever find it annoying when someone is so close to you, you can feel their moist, warm breath on the back of your neck?"
Raph paused, looking up, and to her, "Um... I'm used to it."
"Right-large family-I remember... Er-and I'm sorry that they aren't here," Lauren whispered.
Raph breathed, "Uh-so, remind me what we're looking for?"
"You are hacking into the government to look for anything out of the ordinary," Lauren said, and Raphs fingers were a blur across his own keyboard. "While I am deleting all the information on the autobots off the internet I can... Miko, if you don't back up-I'll tell Jack that little secret. Jack-don't make me mention the circuit!"
They both backed away.
"Thank you," Lauren said, cheerfully, "So... I guess I should get y'all some food... just let me. Hop-skip-and a jump, thats all I can do. There will still be some fragments,
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter IV: Team Prime...)
Rachet's voice some how drew both Lauren and Optimus out of-whatever it had been. Optimus looked to Rachet, and Lauren held the Matrix shard tightly in her right hand, as though she was afraid to lose it. The storm that Optimus had felt inside of her was gone... some how.
Lauren stood in Optimus's hand, "How did this happen? I believed that the autobots were merely a figment of my imagination... not I've seen otherwise. How did you get here-I remember you having a base."
"We did, but this seems to be an entirely different world," Rachet muttered.
"First cybertronian are real and now the theory of multiple realities seems to have merit," Lauren tapped her lip.
"Yes, after a bit of research, I do believe that this is an entirely different reality," Rachet confirmed.
Lauren sighed, "Alright then, have you figured out how?"
Rachet shook his head, "And by the Allspark what happened? You seem like you are an entirely different human."
Lauren blinked, then looked away with a
TFP: Surprise! (Chapter III: To the eyes...)
"And you escaped unscathed?" Optimus asked.
Lauren nodded vigorously, "Yeah-yeah-yeah. Megatron must have lost track of him, I mean why didn't he even fly I away-dummy."
"Starscream lost his T-cog to a ruthless organization known as-"
"MECH-Silas is the only known leader-the jerks who butchered Breakdown-I don't like them for trying to take the DING-y-thingy... they're dummies too," Lauren muttered, "Agh! Focus you stupid idiot! If the Autobots are here this is serious, they don't need a stupid shatter-brained human!" she scolded herself.
Optimus was silent a moment, when he finally said, "Are you feeling well, Miss Courage?"
Lauren laughed in a squeaky tone, "Hee-hee-HEE! He called me Miss Courage!-You need to focus, Lauren.-But its so funny!-Shut up, and listen to me-what ever is happening it is vital that you listen to Optimus... this is important... -Okay, I'll try.
"I-will have my medic look you over before we... speak," Optimus assured.
Lauren beat her head, then laugh
