Okaay. It not my type of books but it was pretty good.
Cybertron. A peaceful planet, until someone created flying Cybertonians. Those flying Cybertronians, turned against their creators, calling themselves...Decepticons. Megatron, the Decepticon leader, has wreaked havoc upon the planet, seeking power over Cybertron. I, Storm Cloud of the yet to be named Autobots, lead the innocent Cybertronians in to defend Cybertron. All did not work out. We were making our way thru the streets of the ruins of Crystal City, weapons charged, field medics in the rear and warriors in the lead behind me. The sound of a blast sounded on our right flank, and ambush. I unsheathed my sword, the purple glow iluminating the ambushers. Devastator Cons. "Constructicons! Form Devastator!" One of the Decepticons called out before jumping into the formation. The Cybertronians readied their weapons, waiting for the signal from me or Optimus Prime, Alpha Trion or Sentinel Prime. I raised my sword, signaling the attack. The swarm of Cybertronians moved foreward and started attacking Devastators legs. I facepalmed, knowing we needed to retreat until Omega Supreme, a Guardian, got here. I looked at the Primes, the only two i know exist, and nodded for them to call the retreat. "CYBERTRONIANS!! FALL BACK AND RETREAT!!" Sentinel Prime called out. Ratchet, a field medic in training, ran up to me and the Primes "two many wounded! We wont escape in time!" The medic said, constantly glancing behind him at the other medics. I squinted "do ur best Ratchet, we need to save all we can...u know the medics motto" I say, sheahing my sword and looking at the retreating Cybertronians. Optimus Prime ran off to a nearby warehouse and went inside. I watched him go then ran back with Ratchet to the rest of the field medics to help. ******Meanwhile****** Devasator raged on outside as Optimus Prime stood just inside the door of the warehouse. It was too dark to see, even with eyes that are lights. He pressed a button on the side of his helmet and his eyes turned into bright flashlights. Optimus' eyes scanned the warehouse, until he found what would be called a truck trailer on earth, his trailer. He walked over but stumbled when the ground shook from Devastor probably punching the ground or taking a step foreward. The young Prime pressed a button on the side of the trailer, resulting in the trailer attaching to his back and transforming into jet wings. He let out a breath of relief to know his invention from his childhood was still functional. ********Back Outside****** I held a Cybertronians arm over my shoulder and one of my arms around the bots middle, helping him walk towards the CSS(Cybertron Space Ship). The bots name was Skytripp, and he had been shot out of the air and damaged badly. Skytripp was losing energon fast, and he was heavy despite me being stronger than ur usual Cybertronian. Ratchet helped another bot named Firstaid carry another wounded to the CSS. Suddenly, we heard a jet engine blast. I shook my head and chuckled "Optimus..." as the jet engine blast was from the Primes flight tech, that only me and a few other knew about. Skytripp looked at me, confused "ill explain later" I said as I layed Skytripp on a bed inside the CSS. Ratchet and Firstaid layed the other bot on a bed next to Skytripp. That other bot, was none other than Bumblebee. A blue female Cybertronian ran inside and instantly was beside the scout, Bumblebee. I recognized the female bot as Arcee, the scouts sister. ***Sierra/Storm Cloud***
