Sam looked around nervously, something wasn't right. His surroundings were uncomfortably familiar but he honestly couldn't place it. He took a couple steps forward into the seemingly deserted junkyard. He couldn't seem to recall what he was doing out here, or how he got there in the first place.

Twin beams of light from car headlights blinded him and he tried to block the bright light from his eyes with his arms. As he grew accustomed to the unnaturally bright light he was able to see what car it was coming from. With dread he suddenly realized why this place was so familiar. There were no cop cars like that in his town, he actually had never seen one that style. That wasn't true, he had seen one, but it wasn't really a cop car. The dread increased tenfold as the cop car came closer and transformed into a giant robot. A Decepticon named Barricade.

Sam stumbled backwards, tripping over something behind him and landing on his back. The thing turned out to be a smaller robot that came up to his knees, Frenzy. It made excitable mechanical noises and clung to his leg as he tried to crawl backwards. A horrid sense of deja vu overcame him and he looked up just in time for Barricade's fist to slam down beside him. He flinched away from it, terrified by now.

"You destroyed the All Spark!" He growled leaning in so close that Sam wondered if the robot was capable of feeling his panicked quick breaths against it's metallic body.

"C-can't we talk about this!" Sam whimpered when the other fist came down, shuddering the earth. Barricade gained something sickeningly similar to a smile while Frenzy chirped excitably in his native tongue. Surprisingly enough he stood up, and Sam relaxed slightly, until he saw the giant metallic fist coming down again, this time aimed at him. He cried out and tried feebly to protect himself with his arms when a yellow camaro launched through the air at Barricade and transformed midair. Bumblebee, grappled with the slightly larger robot.

Sam stared unmoving until Bumblebee started playing his radio. "-Run Away, do your best to hide-" Not needing further prompting Sam scrambled to his feet and began to run but fell on his face seconds later when his foot snagged something. He twisted and saw his foot hadn't snagged something, but something had snagged his foot.

Frenzy clicked in excitement before exclaiming "Gotcha!" in English. Sam grunted and tried to kick the small robot off but it started pulling him back towards the fray between the two giant robots.

"No!" Sam moaned struggling helplessly. The feeling only increased as he watched Bumblebee smash into a pile of cars and lay unmoving. "Bumblebee!" He cried, struggling attempts increasing when he saw his guardian in trouble. "Let me go!" He grunted, fighting with Frenzy. "Leave Bumblebee alone!" He cried as Barricade approached Bumblebee. The robot turned and suddenly it wasn't Barricade, but Megatron.

Sam's voice failed him as he watched Megatron tear Bumblebee into pieces. It was impossible! He had destroyed Megatron along with the All Spark! The giant tyrant tossed the tortured remains of his guardian to the side and approached Sam. Frenzy let go of him and moved off to the side, but for some reason the boy's limbs were unmoving.

"I gave you the chance to live Sam Witwicky. You turned me down, destroyed the All Spark, and tried to destroy me. Now I must keep up my end of the bargain." Sam's voice suddenly returned full force as a scream ripped from his voice as crushing force came down and -

Sam struggled to free himself from his bed sheets and ended up on his bedroom floor. Taking deep gasping breaths he looked around his room. The realization it was just a dream hit him and he let his head fall onto the wooden floor. He was drenched with sweat and trembling still. He stood up intent on crawling back into bed and trying to catch some rest when he heard a creaking noise outside his window.

"Sam?" The boy in question turned to the window and relief was palpable on his face when he saw Bumblebee peering into the bedroom. "Is everything alright? I heard screaming."

"Oh," Sam felt his face getting hot as he stared at his feet. "Sorry, I just had a bad dream, nothing to worry about."

"Are you sure? Your adrenaline appear to be rather high and-"

"I'm sure Bumblebee." Sam moaned as he plopped on his bed rubbing his face. Every time he closed his eyes he could see Megatron, tearing Bumblebee apart or looking evilly down on him. "Actually, I think I could go for some fresh air."

Bumblebee merely watched as Sam pulled on some pajama bottoms and t-shirt along with a pair of shoes. He crept out of his room, checking to make sure he hadn't woken his parents as he had Bumblebee, before meeting the robot outside. Silently he transformed into a camaro and Sam climbed in. The windows rolled down of their own accord and the radio knob spun before landing on Incubus. "But lately I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself my light is found." Sam smiled as the car proceeded to rev before driving itself.

Glancing at the clock near the radio he saw it was 3 in the morning. Sighing he leaned his head against the window frame, letting the cool night air calm him down. After 10 minutes of driving through the empty streets his eyes began to droop, then close. He jolted upright fearfully when images from his nightmare assaulted him.

"Is everything alright? -" The radio queried and Sam just stared at it for a full moment while the rest of the song played. The engine revved in what Sam assumed was a worried manner.

"Uh.. Ya." He murmured rubbing his eyes, viciously trying to remove the images burned in his retina. "I just...Is it.." He sighed before trying again, asking in a very quiet voice "Is it possible that Megatron is still alive?"

Kanye West began informing Sam that "It's just impossible - It's im-poss-ible." A ghost of a smile graced his lips, amused that Bumblebee still insisted on using his radio when in car form. The radio knob spun again as the All American Rejects announced, "Why worry? It's killing me, forget about it."

"Alright," Sam sighed as he leaned back in his seat. The knob spun one last time before Phil Collins filled the airwaves.

"I will protect you, from all around you, I will be here, don't you cry." Rolling his eyes but appreciating the gesture all the same he let himself relax. Soon all thoughts of his horrible nightmare were leaving him and he found himself feeling tired once more. This time, however, no images of Megatron haunted him as he nodded off feeling safe as Bumblebee drove him through the empty streets.

Pardon any OOC-ness, I have only seen the movie once and I was kind of out of it. Anyone else notice how Sam/Bumblebee fans are crawling out of the woodwork? Is it strange that I don't find the couple so strange? lol.
I mainly wrote this cause I needed to warm up my creative juices for Hogwart_Elite's Hogsmeade weekend which starts tonight. I probably won't write another from this fandom until I've seen it a second time.
