Nexus trip

Oriana waves to Optimus where he's sitting on Kigan's hip, then slips into the passenger seat of the little purple Mini and carefully closes the door. "What does 'girl time' mean anyway, Cureall? I tried to look it up and couldn't find a really clear definition."

Then she looks over her shoulder and feels a little wistful as she sees Optimus scrambling for his basketball. She still suspects that her original liked that game. But the thought of several hours spent with her best friend and foster mother is also appealing, even though she has no idea what they'll be doing.

Cureall laughs softly as they cruise smoothly along the road. "The phrase is more human, where females go through many biological issues, that they must talk about. But in our case? We are going to go put pretty clothes on you and discuss how you feel about the males in our lives."

"How I feel...." Oriana gives the dash a bewildered look. "I don't understand."

"Mm, are they good to you? Has there been anybody you have a crush on? You don't mind babysitting little Optimus, do you?"

"Kigan and Optimus are always good to me, and I love babysitting."

Then she frowns slightly. "Crush?"

"This one does not meet all of the people you do. She was wondering if you made and male friends you see in a romantic light?" A light on the dash blinks happily.

"Ohhh." She smiles slightly and shakes her head. "No. The only males that I really speak to are the ones in our family and the ones that I occasionally meet in the Nexus."

"Mmm?" Cureall rumbles slightly as they pop into the nexus. "Oh, well then this trip is going to be about putting you in pretty dresses then!"

Oriana scratches her head and starts to say something, but then gasps and puts up her hands as a white mech suddenly appears right in front of Cureall.

Cureall's brakes squeal loudly as she stops abruptly with a sharp yell. Oriana may feel her seat belt tighten around her, the mini Cooper's version of a soccer mom reach.

She does, but she's too busy pushing her hair from her eyes to stare up through the windshield at the mech, who looks back at her from under the shadow of the black chevron on his forehead as one of his hands rests on the front of Cureall's hood.

"We... we could have...." She swallows and closes her eyes.

Cureall's own sensors pick up the white mech. If Kigan were there, he would sense many things, her tense nerves from almost crashing, her relief that Oriana is safe.

Then when she too turns her attention outside of herself again a sense of both intense anxiety and intense childlike adoration. "R-Ratchet?"

"Are you alright?" he asks, his voice a little gruff at his first sight of the blond woman as he takes his hand away from the Mini's hood and puts it on his knee.

"We could have crashed," whispers Oriana, shaken.

"Th-this one is mostly sh-shaken, sir." She stumbles backing up a little. "Oriana, get out a moment, this one needs to check her bipedal form."
