She quietly crawled through the air vent system but thanks to her small size it was easy for her to move about. It only seem only four month ago when Optimus gave her the Creation Matrix for safe keeping but it was only four month later that she learned the truth. Saber Fang told her that Shockwave is forcing Optimus to give life to his army using the power of the Creation Matrix. Upon hearing this Ruby sent Saber Fang back to the Ark to see if she could repair the Autobots. For Ruby, she went straight to Shockwave’s base to save Optimus. She may by five years old but she wasn’t about to let anyone hurt the only person that was a father to her. So here she was in the air vent until she reached the vent she was looking for. She could hear Shockwave speaking about where the matrix but could not see Optimus. Suddenly Ruby heard a growl as something black slammed into her. The force was strong enough to knock them out of the vent and crashed into the ground. “So good of you to join us, human,” A voice said. Ruby knew who it was that was speaking. It was that jerk Shockwave who dared to hurt her father. She felt her body left of the floor and she was faced with a single optic mech. “You are very brave to come,” Shockwave said, “What is your name?” The only answer he got was a kick to the chin by Ruby’s foot. The force was strong enough to make Shockwave to drop Ruby and gave her chance to body slam Shockwave back. “Why you little...” Shockwave said, once recovered, aim his gun arm and fired. The shot was on target and the shot went through her stomach leaving a gaping hole in as she flew back by the force. “Ruby no,” a voice called out. Ruby looked up at where the voice was and saw the head of Optimus Prime, the one she knew as her father. “Ruby get out of here now,” Optimus said. “Not… without… you,” Ruby grunted as she tried to get up but was grabbed by the neck by Shockwave. But Ruby used the power of the Matrix to fling machinery at Shockwave to knock him to the wall. She then lifted it up to let Shockwave fall to the ground and just when she was going to slam it down Panthor came up from behind her and slashed her in the back. As she fell Panthor use her Flamethrower to knock the machinery away from Shockwave. Shockwave got up and went over to Ruby. “At first I thought of sparing your but now I will destroy you now,” Shockwave said. “No!” Optimus said. Shockwave aimed his gun arm at Ruby just as she leapt up at him. Ruby stabbed a sharp object into Shockwave just as he fired. Shockwave staggered back and pulled the make shift sword out. For Ruby the hole she had now taken out her right side. “You won this time, Ruby, but this isn’t the end,” Shockwave said, “Well for you it is.” He fired another shot that was able to severed Ruby into two. As she fell back she only thought about Optimus… her father... darkness…….. She slowly open her eyes and knew something was wrong. She slowly got herself on to her elbows and looked at her legs and was shocked about what she saw. Her legs were now robotic with a dragon head on her right hip and a tail too. “Thank Primus, your awake,” a voice praised. Ruby already knew that it was Sideswipe who spoke. And sure enough the red warrior was sitting next to Ruby’s bed. Next to him was his yellow twin bother Sunstreaker. “About time, I was getting sick of waiting,” Sunstreaker said. “More like worried sick,” His brother said grinning. “You are asking for an aft kicking,” Sunstreaker growled as he glared darkly at his brother. “I like to see you try,” Sideswipe said. Ruby giggled at the brothers bickering as another boxy red and white bot came in and he was not happy. “All I ask is that you be quite so Ruby can rest but I find you auguring,” The bot said, “I have half a mind to make you both into toaster.” “Hey Rachet,” Ruby said cheerfully. “Hey, Ruby, I bet your wondering what happened,” Rachet asked. With a nod from Ruby Rachet explained that they found her very injured and Optimus. They brought them back and he and Wheeljack worked hours to build and fit the legs to Ruby. And this began a fresh start a new life for Ruby.
