    Great Travel Book From Lonely Planet

    Great book, easy read. Something to look at if you have no idea where you're going or know exactly where you're going. Anywhere in the middle and you may get pulled in a few directions.

    Discoveries~Chapter 1~A Prime and Blockade~Part 2

    A few of the teachers glanced in our direction, but thankfully, none paid us any attention. If any were, they may notice Im not the kids usual ride. But no one, i repeat, no one was paying any attention; not even the usually too curious younger children Bulkhead told Ratchet and me about. Seeing Rafael on the edge of the crowd, i opened the door closest to him, the driver's door. Normally i would pa more attention to hiding, but my mind wasnt on that. It was on the pod.
    "Hey Optimus, Jack." Raf greeted as he climbed in. "Anything new at base? Other than the meteor..."
    I didnt reply as the 12-year-old took the middle seat beside Jack, who told Raf what the pod was. Jack opened the passenger door for Miko, who was grumbling about something as she climbed in. She held up a piece if paper and let Jack look at it.
    "E-minus again....double scrap." She muttered. Raf tilted his head then looked out the window as i started my engines back up and turned onto the main street of Jasper. The pod continued to smoke when i realized it felt familiar, like i knew who is in it; that and i felt like we were being watched, by one of the teachers with a suspecting look. Not good.
    "Is that your History teacher, Jack?" Asked Rafael.
    "Yeah....strange." Jack answered. Strange how the teacher was watching us with more interest than the pod... i dont like it. ***********************************************
    Back at base, 400 meters from Jasper...
    I drove in through the entrance tunnel, the one that we dont use for the Ground-bridge, stopping next to Ratchet and Nurse June Darby, Jack's mother, and the nurse didnt look too happy.
    "Hi Mom." Said Jack as he jumped out. Raf jumped out after him, then Miko.
    "Hey Ratch, where's Bulk?" Miko called to Ratchet, refering to Bulkhead, her Autobot friend. Racteht shrugged in reply to her. Strange; he would usually at least SAY something in return.
    "Jack, report card?" Asked June.
    "Here." Jack replied as he handed his mother his paper. "Dont worry, ive got good grades this time."
    "Its not that im worried about." Said June. I transformed and looke down at the humans. "Optimus, what is with the meteor crahing into the SCHOOL?"
    "I cannot control where the pod crashes." I replied. June rolled her eyes and glared at me.
    "Do you know what would have happened if the children were inside?" She asked.
    "I am aware..."
    "And?"
    I have no reply for her; jut slence really. Its true, i cannot control where or when the pods crash; they cannot even control themselves.
    "Mom, please calm down." Said Jack as he climbed the stairs to where their TV and smaller computer monitors were.
    "Yeah... the 'Bots had no idea the pod was coming." Said Raf from the couch that was in front of the TV. Agreed on June needing to calm down. In my opinion, she does get a little, only a little, overprotective. I do too sometimes; as well, i have to admit.
    "Fine." June said. Miko leaned on one of the smaler computers Ratchet didnt use much, crumbled her paper into a wad and threw it in a random direction; mine. It hit my head, bounced off my shoulder and dissappeared.
    "Uh... Miko?" Said Jack, going back down the stairs to find his friend's report card. I felt it fall into my windshield, which is on my chest when im in normal form, as i am now. I promise you, i would have shuddered; a paper wad is not a pleasant thing to have wedged in one's windshield. (Will continue in next result!)
