Chapter 3: Being Human
The sound of rain could be heard through the walls of the large building that Jackie lived in. Lightning flashed and thunder rolled. Shaking her head Jackie laughed playfully.
"So much for this being desert country."
Jackie's keys jingled as she unlocked the door. She shoved it open carrying groceries in her hand that she HAD been purchasing at the time when she saw Optimus in the busy intersection. She had offered him a place to sleep for the night but was going to be damned if he didn't at least earn his keep while he was here. On that note, he too was cautiously carrying a bag full of groceries as well.
As she opened the door a unique aroma wafted the air as Optimus entered the small apartment behind Jackie. The television was on with a young boy playing video games.
The apartment was small but sufficient.
The immediate room they entered was what Optimus guessed was what humans called a 'living-room'. Farther in through an open door

Chapter 7: Guardian Angel
Optimus sat quietly in the living room watching the television. Optimus had turned down the volume as to keep Kira from waking; needless to say Optimus wasn't really watching.
Thoughts continued to pester him, eat away at him. They almost seemed to bring up an amount of stress that surprisingly to Optimus, was beginning to make him uncomfortable.
What if he couldn't return to his rightful dimension? What if it was fate that he be bound to this world, this form for the rest of his natural life? A couple short months ago Optimus would have shook that thought straight out of his processor and would have thought positively about the situation, Ratchet was a well trusted, loyal friend and had an above average intelligence. If anyone could figure out what had happened as well as discover how to return Optimus to his true form, it was him.
But now, cold, harsh reality was really starting to set in on Optimus. What if Ratchet couldn't find out what we

Chapter 2: CHANGE
How could this be?
How could I have become human?
How is this even possible?
What happened to my armor?
What happened to my troops?
WHAT HAPPENED TO ME?!
Question after question flooded his processor as he emptily stared into the glass, seeing only a human man staring back.
He was tall, broad chested and worn. The years on him showed that he had been through some rough times. He was a large Caucasian with dark black hair and mustache and wide, dark sapphire blue eyes.
Looking away from the window, Optimus slowly let his gaze move to his hands, which strangely were shaking. They were the hands of human who worked. Old, worn out, cut, bruised and callused.
Moving his hands to his cloths, still looking at the refection he took into careful detail of the fabric he now bore on his body. A casual red plaid t-shirt. Tight blue boot cut pants. Dark brown leather boots. This entire dress attire was the same kind that Optimus had previously seen in an old weste

Chapter 1: The Battle
When we are faced with decisions in our lives, we have to make a choice whether that choice is justified 'right' or 'wrong' by others is meaningless; as long as it's right by you. Our lives are precious considering we are only given one. So the question we are forced to ask ourselves is this; What are you going to do with your life now, if you know it will change your life in the future even if we don't know if that change is going to be good or bad?
Optimus stood at a stand-still facing his arch enemy Megatron, neither one of them giving in to the other's will.
The battle was fierce
The wounds were deep
But neither one would give in.
Charging his enemy Optimus bolted toward the mech that at one time he called a friend, but now now that was different. Both swords brought to the ready, Optimus cut into his enemy violently ripping the metal in front of hi

Chapter 8: Family Affairs
Several weeks have passed since that night, and Cole and Kira only face three more weeks of school. That and it was nearing Kira's birthday and she could not wait.
"I'm turning six Opmus! I'm turning six!"
Looking from his spot at the stove Optimus chuckled nodding. "I know Kira, you've told me several times."
Prancing around the island table, Kira chimed. "Mommy says that we're having a family reunion tomorrow and a birthday party all at the same time!"
Sounding as though he had no idea Optimus smiled. "Oh really?"
Nodding excitedly Kira squealed. "Yep! And mommy says that if I'm REALLY good, I might get some presents!"
At that moment, Kira squealed even louder and paraded out of the kitchen into the living room.
Watching her leave, Cole looked up with an annoyed, dumbfounded expression. Seeing this, Optimus just chuckled and turned his attention back to the cream of chicken soup simmering on the stove. Hearing the toaster pop up, Optimu

Chapter 4: Meeting Grandma
"Cole, do you think he's going to stay?"
"No, mom said he was only staying the night; and it's morning now so "
"But he can't go, I like him!"
"Because he's funny."
"Oh so just because you think he's funny, that means he has to stay?"
Voices were all around him as he slowly came online.
"Uh-oh. Uh Cole, he's waking up!"
"Then what are we waiting for, let's get out of here!"
As Optimus' eyes slowly opened, he could barely see a flash of purple and blue streak out of the room, but then the purple came back. "Hi Opmus!"
Sitting up, Optimus could clearly see that it was Kira in her purple sports jersey that was obviously too big for her and hung over her knees.
"Good morning Kira. Where is your mother?"
Putting her hands behind her back and swaying she sighed. "She's still sleeping'."
Nodding Optimus sighed. "Ah, I see. Well I suppose I best be on my way."
Slowly rising off the couch, Optimus carefully pi
