A Prime's Mission

By Tomeka J Ligon

Action / Adventure

Twilight of a Prime

It was during the end of the golden age when Optimus prime and Megatron were merely sparklings named Orion Pax and Megatronis, where the equality of Cybertronians had just began to wane. An aging prime stood on the porch of her dojo outside the City of Chaon with a worried expression of her face.

"Master Syaori is everything alright?" a young sparkling asked bowing to her

Shaken out of her thoughts she turned to the sparkling and smiled.

"No, I am alright. Have the others meet me in the main chambers for the sword handling lessons, I'll be there in a moment."

"Yes, Master" the sparkling gets up and heads back inside to gather the rest.

'My dear pupils if you only knew the dangers that are on the horizon, I fear that I will not be able to protect you when they come.' her thoughts were once again interrupted when a siren sounded signaling her that there was trouble once again in the city. She vents heavily then goes inside where her students were all waiting for her to begin the lesson.

Vorns Later

It was a somber day on Cybertron, Syaori Prime the last of the original 13 primes had become one with the All Spark. The planet inhabitants bowed their heads as her hallow form was carried through the streets of Cybertron, the destination : The Hall of the Primes. The new master of the dojo lead the procession followed by her students, In the procession was a young sparkling named Wheeljack who was present at the moment she had passed. He carried her swords as if they were the most precious things to him. She had taken him on as her ward after his brush with trouble in the city of Iacon and taught him they way of the sword, honor and justice. As her body was laid to rest in her tomb and sealed 13 bells sounded throughout Cybertron signifying the burial of the 13th prime. Everyone left the hall of the primes and headed back to their homes Wheeljack remained and knelt before her tomb while clutching her swords.

"What do I do now Master? Am I to stay at the Dojo?"

"You are to live as you see fit."

A stunned Wheeljack turned and saw her behind him. The world around him faded as the prime stood before him. Wheeljack quickly bowed and placed the swords before her.

"I've taught you well Wheeljack but now it is time for you to carve your own destiny."

"But how?"

"You are a bright young bot, going to school and becoming a productive member of society is a first step, after that it's up to you."

"I will master, you can count on me. I won't let you down."

"I know you won't." she fades away and the burial site comes back in to view. Wheeljack gets up and is about to walk away from the tomb but stops. He goes back places her swords on top of her tomb and bows once more then walks away leaving his old life behind to start a new one, one of his own choosing.

At the well of the All spark

Syaori Prime stood before Primus as well as her predecessors about to join them.

"Wait Syaori" said Primus

"What is wrong Primus?"

"We know that you have reached the end of your life and like all Cybertronians must join the all spark but there is darkness on the horizon and our world will become consumed by corruption, greed inequality and soon after war." said the Primes in unison

"What must I do?"

"A distant world will become swept up in our conflict, you must travel there and wait for our compatriots and lead them back here to restore order to our planet." said Primus

"How can I do this? My body it is…."

"You must choose a new form so your abilities are hidden until they arrive." answered the primes

"Why have I been chosen for this mission?"

"Your code of honor, justice and peace is what makes a Prime. However it is your selfless actions that made you worthy for this mission."

"Now go Syaori, our planet's future rest on your spark." said Primus

Syaori Prime transformed into a ball of light and shot off into the atmosphere.

"Primus, are you certain that Syaori will find our brethren in time?" asked Solaris Prime

"I know she will succeed." said Primus

The orb of light traveled through star system after star system searching for this endangered world that primus spoke of. Finally after vorns of searching it reached a small planet covered mostly by water and seven landmass. The orb traveled to a small island where she happened upon a young woman being pulled from a river and carried to a shrine. It watched as they assessed her and said that she would not survive the night. When the men left her to be at peace, the orb transformed back into Syaori Prime. The young woman came to and looked at her.

"Are you here to take me to paradise?"

"No, I am here because I need your help."

"I'm afraid there is nothing I can do to help. I am dying from my injuries."

"If you were given another chance, would you help me then?"

"Yes, I would."

Syaori Prime placed her hands on the young woman and energy flowed from her to the young woman. The young woman's body glowed blue, her eyes turned from brown to cyan blue then glowed. When the blue light faded Syaori was gone and the young woman sat up, tears flowing from her eyes.

"I understand, I will help you Syaori Prime."

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds.
