Hi everyone and welcome to my first Transformers fanfiction. Before you start reading you should probably know that this doesn't take place in one of the previously established Transformers universes, but in an original one. I'm going to be borrowing some elements from the movies, Transformers: Animated, and Transformers: Prime though. All of the characters, except for Starscream and Soundwave at the moment, will look like they do in the movies. Starscream and Soundwave will look like they do in Transformers: Prime. Oh and if your wondering what my OC Aly Rose looks like, she looks like Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 1, Chapter 1 Aly Rose impatiently drummed her fingers against her desk and anxiously looked up at the clock. It was Friday and it seemed like time was against her, forcing her to endure five more minutes of her teacher's lecture. Normally she would have paid more attention to what he was saying, but today all she wanted was for the bell to ring so she could leave. It was Friday and her parents were out of town for the weekend. Usually when they were out of town, she would be forced to stay with one of their neighbors for the weekend, but this time Aly had convinced them to let her stay with her friends instead. It hadn't been too hard to convince her parents to let her. Of course had she told them that the friends she was going to be staying with were giant alien robots, they probably wouldn't have let her. In fact if her parents even knew that giant alien robots existed and that she was friends with them, her mom would freak and her dad probably would never let her leave the house again. Only three more minutes, Aly told herself. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bumblebee sat in vehicle mode out in the school's parking lot. He was glad that it was almost time for Aly to come out of the building. After all sitting outside in the sun for seven hours got rather boring after a while for a young energetic bot like Bumblebee, especially when you had to do it five days a week. If it wasn't for the internet or his radio, he probably would have died from boredom. He had learned that there was a camera that watched the parking lot to make sure that no one tried to steal any cars during the school day and so if he were to leave after the school day started, it probably would look like someone was stealing the yellow Camaro. Bumblebee had been looking forward to this weekend ever since Aly had convinced Prime and the others to let her stay at their current base while her parents were out of town. Being Aly's guardian, he normally spent the majority of his time with her, or at least sitting in a parking lot outside of the place she was currently at. He rarely got to stay at the base. Sure he and Aly would go there after school most days and on the weekends, but they never got to stay too long before it was time for them to get back to Aly's house. So when Aly told him about her parents going out of town and that unless she found somewhere else to stay, they were both going to be stuck staying with one of her neighbors this weekend, he had suggested that they ask Optimus if she could stay with them instead. After a short discussion with the rest of the Autobots, it was decided that Aly could stay with them on the condition that her kitten didn't. The condition was Ironhide's; he didn't particularly like Sherlock climbing on him. Plus Sherlock would be easy to miss and one of them might accidentally step on the gray and white kitten. He noticed that people were coming out of the school building then and looked to see where Aly was at. She was at the door talking to a few of her friends. After a few minutes they all walked towards the parking lot and Aly opened up the door and climbed inside. "Bye Aly, see you Monday," one of the girls called. "See ya later," Aly called back, closing the door. "Hey 'Bee." "Hi Aly, how was school?" Bumblebee asked as he pulled out of the parking spot. "Same as always," Aly replied. "It feels like the teachers make us do the exact same thing every single day. It's so boring. I'm going to be glad when it's summer and I don't have to go for a few months." "It's that bad?" Bumblebee asked. "I thought school sounded rather interesting." "Well it's sort of interesting every now and then, but it's usually boring. All you do is sit and do work or take notes or listen to your teachers lecture," Aly explained to him. "Did you guys have anything like schools back on Cybertron?" "Not that I know of," Bumblebee answered. "Optimus, Ratchet, or Ironhide would be able to answer that better than I can. They know more about what Cybertron was like before the war. So are you all set for tonight?" "Yep! Sherlock is staying with my neighbor and I have all of my stuff right here," she said. "I brought some DVDs for us to watch too." "Which ones?" "Let's see, I brought all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and some of the Indiana Jones movies. I thought you guys might like them." Bumblebee did a quick internet search to see what the movies were about. "They sound like good movies," he said. "They are. So has anything been going on?" she asked. "No, nothing since the Decepticons last attack," Bumblebee replied. "The others have picked up a Decepticon roaming around on some of the scanners though. Since we've only spotted one on the scanners, Optimus doesn't think the Decepticons are going to attack again yet, but he thinks they might be planning something." "Too bad whatever their planning probably isn't them leaving," Aly muttered. "Yeah," Bumblebee said in agreement. "So do you have anything you need to do with martial arts this weekend?" Aly smiled. She had been taking martial arts lessons ever since she was six after she watched some movie with her parents that had some martial arts in it and she had told them that she wanted to learn how to do martial arts. She was nearly through with lessons now, and the lessons she still had took place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but every now and then she would go to the gym on the weekends to practice some. "Not unless there's nothing else to do," Aly replied. "Can't get enough practice can you? Well it's nice to know that the person I'm guarding can at least take care of herself a little," Bumblebee said teasingly before switching the radio to play "Eye of the Tiger". Aly just rolled her eyes, "Very funny 'Bee."
