Chapter 1 A robot ran through the corridors as shot exploded at his feet. Panting he made a sharp right turn and headed to closed door at the ended of the hall. He entered the code to open it and entered the room. He entered the lock code when the door closed and went to a nearby computer. “I got to send this to Magnus,” he said as he heard loud banging sound at the door. He unspaced a disk, put it in, and started typing. At the same a 15 year boy also put a disk in and started typing as well. An explosion rocked the room the robot and damaged him and the computer system. As he recovered the computer screen started to glow and the boy’s computer screen also started to glow as well. The boy backed away as the screen grew brighter until he was blinded by it. The light quickly vanished and the boy was able to see. What he saw made him gasp. Lying on his floor was human sized robot that appeared to be hurt for several places sparked. He was red and black and was simple built and was like a human but more robot like. “Kevin, is everything okay up there?” A women voice asked giving name to the boy. “Mom, you better come up here,” Kevin called back as he went up to the robot. A minute later his mother came and gasped at the robot as Kevin turned him on his back. “Don’t touch it, it might be dangerous,” His mother said. “But his hurt, mom, and I don’t think his dangerous,” Kevin said, “Can you get dad’s tools for me.” “Okay,” She said as she left. A half an hour later the robot was lying on Kevin’s bed with bandages, provided by his mother, around his injuries. “Is he alright?” His mother asked. Just as she said this a groan escaped from the robot. His optics flicked for a moment then became solid. “Wh-where am I?” He asked. “You’re at my house on Earth,” Kevin answered. “Earth?” He echoed. “Yes, my name is Kevin and this is my mom,” Kevin said, “What’s your name?” “My name is Hardcore,” He answered as he tried to get up but his injuries stopped him. “Take it easy, you’re still hurt,” Kevin said then asked, “Where do you come from?” Hardcore explained about his kind, the Transformer, the war, the Decepticons, the Autobots, and everything.
