The one reason Sam was trying to travel (so far, successfully) in what had to be the worst white-out of the winter was simple---she’d said she would. Her family (and Felix’s) understood that every arrival was planned with ‘weather permitting,’ and probably would’ve urged her to stop somewhere for the afternoon, if not overnight. Sound advice? Sure. Any other year, she would’ve been content to cry ‘stormstayed!’ This year, she had a reason to stay on the road, even with her cold old Suburban shuddering forward a few feet at every stop.

It was the same reason she’d set out early enough to blow by Winnipeg an hour before she’d be up on a workday; the same reason she’d tied a now snow-dusted scarf to the ‘burban’s passenger door handle; the same reason her rabbit’s foot remained in her breast pocket, where she’d tucked it before trudging out into the raw predawn dark.

…and what the hell; she had to hope.

Well, he'd gone through the trouble of picking up this tiny little fold of paper, and had even written in it, and he'd even managed to get off The Nemesis to be out here. Some...possible energon deposit that would "prove" to be a false read.

He was starting to think he'd missed her though, when he finally spotted that yellow "flag." He scanned the street, and was glad to note that no other vehicles were close enough to be an issue. So he sped up, coming up behind then around beside her. He let out one loud honk before transforming and jogging along beside her vehicle a few strides before transforming back to his alt.

Now that had been fun.

Her reaction got a hearty laugh from him. But Sam? Girl? Those are some horrible sounds you've started making. Still chuckling he pops his driver side door open in invitation. "Hop in. I've got something for you."

The moment she was clear he shut the door and cranked up the heater. On the other seat was a card of all things, picture side down. "See that in the seat? It's ah...for you. Figured I'd come give it to you since I can't magic things to you like you managed to magic a note to me."

He rocked a little awkwardly on his tires as she reads it. Wh-what's taking her so long to say something? Did he do it wrong? What this not what he was supposed to do? She...was smiling though. But was it because he'd totally botched things or because she liked it?! C'MON, SAM!! SAY SOMETHING!!

"Two of three?" And then she'll be able to hear her smile. "Not bad at all. Startled the scrap out of me, though, when I pulled it up on my screen."

He'd be smiling now if she could see him doing so. "Well, it's a good start. Three later."

Oh, all right. He'll rumble off the road and park himself in front of of Sam's vehicle.

"That? Better than I expected. Though ah...my partner knows the whole story now. He kind of found me after I'd wiped off the spell word."

"Ah...better than anyone else would have. He grilled me for details, was a bit upset with me, and then let it go." It's why he trusted Knock Out. He knew his partner fussed out of worry, and was just glad to have Breakdown back. He knew Knock Out wouldn't tell anyone.

"Spark. We've got a spark."

He chuckled. "You mean I'm gettin' grilled again?!" He chuckled a bit more. "Don't remember exactly how I said it, but I told him everything. How MECH got me, how you showed up, everything we talked about. Though I don't think I was able to explain your magic as well as you did."

It was more reliable, but he wasn't sure he wanted to take the time to go over all of it. "How about a slightly detailed summary? Else we'll be here for hours. Okay, so...he found me after I'd wiped away the spell so he of course asked me what I was up to and about the white smeared on my chest. Figured it'd be easiest to start explaining with the spell so I told him it was from the one who'd helped me away from MECH.

"Told him about you walking right in like you belonged there, how when I first saw you I thought you were one of us." Primus he'd be blushing if she could see his face right now. "I explained it was another spell, that MECH saw you as one of them too. When the spell wore off I realized what you were and almost left you. But since you helped me, and I had to know how you'd, ah...tricked me, I snatched you up and got out of there."

"Told him we holed up somewhere for a little while, and that it only seemed fair to get you nearer a city. Again, you helped me, I couldn't leave you to MECH, especially with them searching for a traitor. And so I told him we talked, I asked questions and answered a few." Nothing detailed, he promised, she didn't know where he was, and that was most important.

"Told him a bit about your magic. About the ink and needing to take you to get some more so you could use a spell on me so ah...Lord Megatron wouldn't be quite so upset with me. It worked. But yeah, tried explaining how things worked, though I'm not so sure I did a good job. Told him that bit about influencing the change of a constantly changing reality to kind of control someone's perception of you or someone else. That that's what the word written on me was for. When he asked why it didn't seem to be working I said it was because the spell had been canceled now and so his perception of me was being influenced towards the opposite for a time. And...that pretty much covers it."

He paused a moment before asking what he'd really be wanting to know. "So...how did you magic me a note?"

That thought nearly made him laugh again. Wouldn't that be something? MECH still searching for a traitor that didn't exist? That thought alone could put him in a very good mode at any time.

He listened, utterly amazed, by her story. When she was done he was quiet for a long moment. He didn't get most of it--keys? How were copies of keys to places the new key-holder didn't even know the location of a valuable thing?--but in the end he knew one thing for certain. That was all a ridiculous amount of work to do to send him a note.

"You...did all of that just to reach me?"

Oh, what she'd done, or rather how she'd done it, wasn't what shocked him, it's that she'd done it all for him, out of concern for him. It left his spark feeling...warm.

And that scared him. He couldn't get attached to a human. Knock Out would have his head, not to mention what Lord Megatron would do to him, and her. This was bad, this was really bad...and he was realizing he was already in too deep.

"I...thanks. It's always a good feeling to know someone cares."

"Heh....yeah well. I should be getting back." No, he couldn't allow himself to see her again. This was too dangerous, for both of them. He'd made a huge mistake in coming and it was time to get out of here.

He popped his door open for her, but before she could really do more than start to move to get back out into the cold he let out a curse and shut her in again. "Scrap. Hang on."

A large green jeep was racing up behind them, and with tires spinning Breakdown finally managed to shoot off down the road.

"An enemy," Breakdown growled. If he'd thought about it, he'd have dumped Sam in the snow and taken off. Bulkhead wouldn't have hurt her, he was sure of it. Scrap, the Autobot was probably going to be extra persistent if he realized Breakdown "had a hostage."

Great. Just fragging great. He keeps things going high speed, tearing off the road and getting away from other cars when he can. It'll probably be a huge shock when Breakdown's cab folds in, the giant bot shifting and transforming around his passenger until she's in a neat little ball in his chest, not too tightly curled, but secure enough.

She might even hear the sound of the other vehicle changing the same way before the CLANG of metal on metal vibrates through Breakdown's body. He was hit, and yet it feels like he didn't budge.
