I stopped a few clicks behind Bumblebee to look at the cave wall, and i saw a shard of energon! "Optim-whoa!" Beeped Bee, his beeps lost in the echoes. "Bumblebee?" I called, leaving the energon shard and lookin into the shadows ahead. No answer, and my COM link was scrap this far into the deposit due to present energon interference. I switched my alt mode's lights on high so they shined brighter on every shadow, until my optics rested on a crevace, some 20-30 clicks from the entrance, and it was wider than my trailer was long! "Bumblebee, can you hear me?" I called down. Nothing but my voice echoing down the crevace. "He must be hurt..." i thought. My lights couldnt illuminate the bottom of the crevice; not a good thing. I turned and exited the cave to my trailer, which i ALMOST left back at base, opened the doors and looked inside. The usual things Ratchet puts there, were there; Roller, my tool and companion, cables and energon cuffs. If there was anything else, i couldnt see it. "Roller, find Bumblebee." I said as i took out a thick cable, testing it by yanking a small portion between my servos (hands); it was strong. Roller beeped and drove out of the trailer, going into the cave ahead of me. I was close behind, but my COM link sprang to life before i could re-enter. "Optimus, is it a good deposit?" Asked Ratchet through the link. "I do not know...Bumblebee may have hurt himself." I told him. "Scrap... Ill send someone to help." "Many thanks, Ratchet." I said as i entered the cave and returned to the crevice. Roller yad come to a stop by the hole and shot out his own extension of cable, a pointed end embedding itself on the opposite side. That, was going to be a problem later... I watched Roller go down for a moment before tossng my cable down so Bee and i could climb back out. Scrap those COM links... i jumped and slid down the sides of the crevice like i did back in Mission City, only without a nemesis chasing me down and a human kid falling. Once safely at the bottom, around 50 clicks below the earths surface, (a few miles in human standards) i looked around and saw Bumblebee sprawled on the floor of this deep crack, and Roller wss right by him. I walked over looked to see how bad the damage was. He had fallen front first, badly damaging his beeper. The scout looked up at me, distraught at the fact that he had lost his way to speak. Again. I looked up at the top of the crevice. You could say we were in a canyon, inside a canyon. I motioned to the cable i had dropped before jumping and Roller still had his cable attached to the wrong side, but my little frind went up ahead of us. ~How are we going to get out?~ Bee asked via bond. "I just showed you." I replied. ~I cant climb...my left arm in non-responsive.~ he said. "Have you forgotten, youngling?" I asked. ~Oh yeah...i did forget. There's someone in the shadows!~ Bee said. I spun around to see a pair of red optics watching me. "Who're you?" Asked a mech's voice. They were the optics of a Cybertronian, and only th optics of Deceptions glow red. I turned my lights toward the optics, iluminating a young black and silver Decepticon. "Ack! Lower the lights, ive been in the dark too long!" The Decepticon said, shieldin his optics from my lights. I lowered them and asked, "Who are you?" "I already asked that to yo-" the 'Con started to say until he saw my face iluminated by my own lights. "You...you're Optimus Prime?" He said.
