Jazz was about to make another smart remark, when Skywarpteleported behind him. Jazz sensed the attack coming from behind him this time, but was still too slow to react. As Skywarp fired around Jazz's feet, Jazz had nowhere to go. - I'm pinned down, can't move. Maybe he's not as dumb as he used to be, - he thought.

"I'm Jazz," he replied when Skywarp asked him what made him think he could take both Decepticons on. "And I got a black belt in kicking your rear thrusters!"

Jazz returned fire as Hound's message came in. Someone or something must've blocked Jazz's previous transmission to Hound he figured. "Scrappin' with Skywarp right now. Thrust has just been freed. Tryin' to prevent their escape, but dunno how long I'm gonna hold out. Pinned down right now. Back-up would be appreciated," he replied over the com.

Jazz had to talk quick, because he couldn't waste too much time talking when fighting a Seeker. "Gimme a sit-rep on the evacuation," Jazz said as he charged forward, trying to get closer to Skywarp again.

"Jazz is under attack," Hound spoke quickly to the assembled Autobots before quickly transforming and heading back. Dirge was just as quick to follow, to give air support to the grounded Autobots.

"No-one else has gathered yet. Wing Saber's ready to go, he just needs his passengers," Hound reported briefly back to Jazz on the sillent com.

Thrust's chains were broken free by Skywarp. "About time you got here!" He yelled to Skywarp, watching as the Seeker battled Jazz. Thrust watched, slightly intimidated by Jazz's confidence, as Skywarp kept teleporting around, trying to fight off the Autobot. Jazz had been distracted by the other Seeker's antics, and Thrust started gaining confidence. "You're good, but you're not Prime!" He yelled, charging close to Jazz, ready to finally take the fight to him.

"Fer this guy, ther ain't no other option," Splint told Bumblebee. "But... ya shure 'bhout this? What kinda feedbhack mhight hitcha?"

Jumpstart was on his feet, examining the inside of the waiting Shell. "This is most unusual," he said, shaking his head in wonder. "Most unusual."

"Try ta think of it as a mobile CR," Splint suggested. "Er, Bumblebee: ya can control this Shell? Ratchet wrote that the users could operhate remotely?"

~~~

As every other Autobot was intent on the fighting between Skywarp and Jazz or busy helping the medics, Afterburner kept his optics on the missile boat. Maybe that was why he seemed to be the only one to pick up the comm message; he was facing the right way (it did seem to be a tight beam transmission: why?) and had opened his radio to pick up potential enemy buzz.

He realised that continuing to play it by the book would be the best option - and mentally cursed himself for getting too old.

"Senior officer requested!" he shouted.

As Jazz was charging at Skywarp, Hound's sit-rep came in. "Copy that Hound. Order everybody on board Wing Saber, he replied over the com. Send Dirge in to back me up. You keep an eye on the Blue Army. Ask that new missile boat if we can leave or not!"

It's been a while since Jazz had to multi-task like this. Fighting two seekers while keeping the evacuation organized is a tough job. Not to mention that this Blue Army misslie boat is still hanging around. While the new one seems to have better intentions, Jazz had to be cautious.

As Jazz wanted to attack Skywarp he heard Thrust signaling his attack behind him. Jazz turned around and couldn't help but wander what was dumber; that Thrust didn't make a break for it or that he wants a fist fight with him. Jazz stood ready. With Thrust going for a close up fight, the posibility of Skywarp firing on Jazz was be slim. Still, with Skywarp on his left and Thrust coming on from his right, Jazz had to wait for the first attack to come his way before he could make a move.

****

Bumblebee shrugged. "I don't know what's going to happen, but it has to be done," he replied to Splint, "and I don't think it's ever been tried before either. I'm sure that there's going to be some feedback since the Shell is configured to me."

Bumblebee got up on his feet. "I'm positive that the Shell can at least keep the mech stable until he gets hooked up to a better CR-unit or something. Maybe I'll have to mentally order it to so, but I guess there's only one way to find out," he said with a smile.

Bumblebee didn't respond to Wing Saber's earlier message. He knows that he means well, but he doesn't want to go back to jail. Not when he can do so much good here in Altihex.

Had Skywarp been a better strategist, like, say, Starscream or Cyclonus or even Thundercracker, he would've called for a retreat. After all, when there is one Autobot there's liable to be another bunch ready to back him up, right? And there's no telling when the other Autobots might return.

Thankfully, Skywarp isn't that smart.

What he thought was along the lines of: there is one Autobot and two of us. We outnumber him.

The Seeker shook his head to clear the cobwebs from Jazz's nerve strike, and ceased firing when Thrust joined the fray. Skywarp grinned. "Of course he ain't Prime, Thrust! Prime is a neon-coloured FedEx truck. This here's a misplaced Nascar racer." He charged Jazz's left flank, intent to ram like a football player. Skywarp winced. Not the best comeback he could give... he'll need to practice more. His jibes used to be legendary, damn it! "I hate Nascar." Skywarp spat.

Hound didn't spare any moments responding to Jazz, instead getting right to his task immediately, stopping so that he could focus on sending out the com messages. "Get to him quick, he needs help," Hound signaled to Dirge, the blue seeker rocketing past him without stopping, heading for Jazz's location.

"All Autobots! Report to the evac zone and board Wing Saber for extraction!!" Hound sent out on a general autobot frequency, then adjusted his com for signaling the Missile boat. "Blue Army Representative, this is Hound of the Autobots. We are prepared to leave peacefully with our injured and those of the medical ships, but we will protect them if hostile action is taken. Will we be allowed to leave peacefully?"

The missile boat responded to Hound

"We are willing to give you any assistance you may require, I can assign you additional medical resources and an escort if necessary to ensure your safe passage."

Jazz was stuck in the middle. Skywarp come in from his left and Thurst coming in from his right, Jazz shook his head. - Can't believe how dumb these 'Cons are, - he tought.

Jazz had to time this right. It was a risky, but if he dodged both 'Cons at the right time, they would crash into each other. Hearing Hound taking control of the evacuation over the Autobot frequency put Jazz at ease a little. At least now he could concentrate on his attackers.





(ooc: Leaving it up to either Thrust or Skywarp to tackle Jazz or not. I don't mind :) Unless Dirge gets there in time :p)

Thrust's dive at Jazz's legs was a little off target when Jazz tried to dodge. The Seeker's arm hit Jazz's leg, but there was not much force behind the attempted arm tackle, and Thrust hit the ground. He rolled over, getting back up to his feet quickly. "I think it's time to get out of here." He said to Skywarp, "before his friends arrive. We don't have time for this - I won't end up in some slagging prison cell!"

------------------------

"You heard the man - get aboard now!" Ironfist yelled to the other Autobots in the area in response to Hound's command as he boarded Wing Saber himself.

Skywarp punched blindly at what he thought was Jazz's midsection, not caring to see if he hit. Turning to Thrust, Skywarp snapped off a joke. "You mean, you don't want to end up in a prison cell again."

But he complied with Thrust anyway, teleporting the short distance to reappear behind his fellow Seeker. Skywarp wrapped his hands around Thrust's torso, and grinned as the two of them disappeared in a crackle of black and red electricity. He could teleport two people at the same time with ease — had done it numerous time before — but stealth was out of the question now.

In a flash, they would've disappeared and reappear on the rooftop where Skywarp had previously scouted the area. "Wheee-oooo!" Skywarp whooped, immediately untangling himself from Thrust, punching the air.

Splint looked hard at Bumblebee and saw absolutely no fear, just determination. The Autobot had no idea what would happen to him, but offered his help freely, unhesitatingly. Splint was impressed...

"Ah'll git rhight on it. Well, this is summat Ratchet didn't try!"

"I see no hook ups," Jumpstart noted. "Plenty of contact points, though. I suppose we just put our mech in."

"Quickly!" Jilly, who had been struggling to maintain the broken Sheriff, now exclaimed urgently. "He's just rejected the Energon feed and gone into back-up mode - stasis failing - Spark-containment losing conhesion."

"So: nothing to lose." Jumpstart knelt and gathered the Sheriff up. With Splint's aid, he lifted the body into the back half of the Shell.

~~~

"On it!" Afterburner stood down, subspaced his missile again and turned to chivvy the medics to hurry up.

"Alright!" Thrust yelled, glad to be free from the Autobots at last. "If you have any spare weapons, I need them." He asked of Skywarp. "Slagging Autobots took all of mine." Thrust glanced around nervously, ready to transform and get out of the area.

"Eh. Heh heh." Skywarp chuckled, sitting on the ground, exhausted. Teleporting two people isn't exactly something healthy... but it was sure as hell useful.

Skywarp detached one of the variable-calibre machinegun attached onto his shoulder and tossed it to Thrust. "Transform, red... and let's go home. They haven't brainwashed you yet, right?"

It would be shortly after Thrust and Skywarp had taken of that Dirge would fly into the area, bee-lining for the now alone Jazz. He transformed and came to a fast stop near the other Autobot, looking around briefly for enemies before focusing in on him. "Are you alright, Jazz?"

Thrust grabbed the gun before it had a chance to fall to the ground. "Not my usual, but it'll do." He said, taking off into the air and transforming.

"They didn't have time to brainwash me before the prison collapsed, and we've been busy since then." He replied back to Skywarp, thinking back to the Autobots, and Dirge in particular. "It's not right what they did to him. I don't know how they did it, but that is not the same Dirge we knew."

Thrust's attack brought Jazz out of balance and with Skywarp's arm scraping over Jazz' midsection, he was brought out of balance and fell on his back. Luckily for Jazz, the Decepticons decided to flee the area. Jazz quickly got back up on his feet and picked his rifle up from the floor. It was then that Dirge entered the area, transformed and stood right next to him.

"Yeah, I'll be alright," he replied. "Thanks for comin' so quick." Jazz scanned the area. Skywarp's teleportation signature could be followed, and he could pursue it but decided against it. Even though it angered him that they got away, he didn't let it show. The safety of the others was more important to him. "Come on. Let's head back to Wing Saber so we can get back to Iacon."

******

With the sherrif in his Shell, Bumblebee closed the shell and and ordered it to stand up. The Shell stood up and started walking in direction of the Med-Evac ship. "So far so good," Bumblebee said to Splint. "Internal systems are working on stabilizing him.

As soon as he said that however, Bumblebee and the Pretender Shell froze in their path. Bumblebee was bombarded with memories of the sherrif. Most notible the memories of the sherrif being shot to pieces. Bumblebee dropped down on his hand and knees. "Nyahhh!!!" He screamed it out, but that was only the beginning.

The Pretender Shell was transferring the pain from the mech inside back to Bumblebee as if it were Bumblebee suffering the pain. The pain was only in his head, but it was still too much for Bumblebee's systems to handle. Bumblebee dropped on the ground quivering. - Got to hang on .... need to save the sherrif...- Bumblebee was scared. Scraed of what might happen, but he had no choice. There's a life in danger and he was determined to save it.

Skywarp folded into his vehicle mode, jet engines roaring as he followed after Thrust. "Move as fast as you can, red. You're weaker right 'bout now... I'll watch your back."

At the mention of Dirge, Skywarp scowled, although in his vehicle mode it couldn't really be seen properly. So, it was true, then. For a Seeker to hold down another Seeker for the Autobots... "Bastards must've used some wacky gizmo or brain changing device on Dirge. Really... it galls me. And I thought we're supposed to be the bad guys!"

Skywarp seethed, not caring to make a joke out of it, as the two Seekers headed towards Polyhex. (OOC: And let's move to that thread now! :) )

"I believe we are adequately supplied, so long as we and the medical ships are allowed to leave unmolested. Our concern is that our wounded don't take any further injuries. Your offer and concern is greatly appreciated," Hound replied to the Missile Boat.

He then pausd and openned his com to Jazz as well as Dirge to relay the info. "The missile boat says we're clear to go. He's offered some aid if we need it, but proabably best if we just get out of here before anything else happens."


Dirge meanwhile nodded in response to Jazz, and then as Hound's transmittion came in. He started to turn to head back, then paused briefly too look around with a frown. He'd known overwelmingly that Thrust's antics were probably a rouse, but there had been some part of him that might have hoped he was sincere. I guess all the chances in the universe won't matter if someone isn't truely willing...

"Yeah, let's go," He finally said aloud, transforming and taking off once he was sure that Jazz would be moving out.

"Copy that," Jazz replied to Hound. "Good job. Let's get everybody on board so we can go back to Iacon. I'm on my way," he said as he transformed to car mode and sped off towards Wing Saber.

"Do you have any information on what these guys are doing out here?" he asked Hound while on his way back.
