Sam was walking determinedly in the rain, concentrating on his shoes and the sidewalk below in an attempt to ignore the camaro revving beside him on the street. He didn't want to get in the car. If he got in the car he would only be reminded of the situation, he would only relive the hurt and embarrassment, and he wasn't so sure he would be allowed to go home and lock himself in his room like he planned to. The car honked angrily at him and Sam found his irritation rising.

"Leave me alone Bumblebee." He snapped at the car, picking up his pace.

"Get out of my dreams, and into my car!" The radio blared at Sam, the car aware that they were in a neighborhood and talking out loud just wasn't an option.

"Just go away!" Sam moaned, looking both ways before attempting to cross an intersection. Unfortunately Bumblebee took the opportunity to swerve into the street he was crossing and block his way. "Knock it off!" The boy's fists shook unsteadily, he was overcome with emotion and all this pushing was going to make him break. He attempted to run around the car, but it merely sped forward or backward. Turning around wasn't an option, at this point, so he started running down the street rather than crossing it. The car easily sped ahead and blocked him once again; this time however he ran smack dab into the vehicle and landed sprawled out on the ground.

He heard a radio dj question "Alright?" and Sam grinded his teeth.

"NO I AM NOT ALRIGHT! MY PSYCHO CAR WONT LET ME CROSS THE GOD DAMNED STREET!" He shouted angrily at the camaro. He vaguely became aware that the wetness on his cheeks weren't just from the rain. "JUST LEAVE ME ALONE AND LET ME GO HOME!"

Sam quickly swung to his feet and tried to cross the street again, but the camaro still wasn't having it. The boy quickly sunk to his knees, shoulders shaking slightly. The passenger door swung slowly open while the radio pleaded with him "Just get in the car, Turn out the light -" Knowing he never had a choice in the matter Sam shakily climbed into the car, only slightly aware he was soaking the upholstery. The car closed the door after him and turned around, taking off at a comfortable pace.

Sam merely shivered, curling into the seat, trying to get his emotions in line but failing horribly. The heat turned on and he felt a small spark of gratitude that lasted for a second before he remembered he was being forced to sit here. The doors were locked and the windows up, the windshield wipers going if only for appearances. The radio didn't play, and the only sounds in the car were the rain beating against Bumblebee and the quiet sobs Sam let out every so often.

When after half an hour the car showed no signs of stopping or even going anywhere in particular Sam finally managed to get a hold of his voice and unsteadily asked Bumblebee why he was here. To his embarrassment he hiccupped at the end of the question and tried desperately to rub his eyes and sniffle back the snot in his nose. He felt like a 5 year old crying over a cut on his knee. "Why didn't you just let me walk home if we're not going to do anything?" He muttered angrily when the car gave him no response.

The silence was starting to get to him and Sam started shouting, angry and frustrated, hurting deep down and not quite understanding his friend's intentions. "I don't know why you wont let me walk! It's none of your business anyways! Just because she broke up with me in front of you doesn't mean you have any right-!" He broke down again before he could finish the sentence. She had broke up with him. They really didn't have much in common, she was smart and pretty, and he was nerdy and average. She liked boys with muscles, he wasn't the least bit toned. The only thing holding them together was their affinity for each other after the life and death struggle they had been involved in. He was completely enamored by her, and his affection for her had increased daily. She, however, had grown bored with him and had dumped him on her doorstep, Bumblebee only feet away. Told him there was someone else, and she hoped they could be friends.

He gripped the seat desperately, turning his face into it, trying to block the images running through his head. "She broke up with me, just dumped me for someone else like I was yesterdays trash. How could she... Bee, why did she do that?" He shook horribly but couldn't do anything to stop the tremors running through him. The engine purred soothingly but didn't speak, knowing it was best if Sam just got it all out first. "She just, oh god..." The boy sobbed, feeling the aching loss of his first girlfriend. He felt so alone, like he had no one, there was no one there for him now. "What am I going to do now?"

"These fancy things, will never come in between. You're part of my entity, here for infinity. When the war has took it's part, when the world has dealt it's cards, if the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart. Because... When the sun shines, we'll shine together. Told you I'll be here forever, that I'll always be your friend, took an oath, I'mma stick it out 'till the end. Now that it's raining more than ever, know that we still have each other. You can stand under my umbrella, you can stand under my umbrella." Sam stared at the radio tiredly as it played.

As he listened his heart swelled, and his throat closed up. The boy's eyes watered for a completely different reason this time. He couldn't believe he even thought for a second that there was no one there for him anymore. Gratitude and affection for his car filled him, and as the song faded out Sam finally smiled, and was able to choke out "Thanks Bee."
