12. Chapter Twelve-Officially Meeting Animal
"Yeah. Apparently he's my cousin from some foreign country. I haven't seen him since then. He said something about a mission. He was really weird."
"You knew him, didn't you?"
"So, did we win?"
"Huh? Oh, yeah."
"I missed all the fun, didn't I?" They all laugh.
It's been about a year and a half since Mission City, and I've had Ironhide by my side as much as he can be. Jazz has been avoiding me, though. Every time I catch him somewhere, he says something about 'being alone' and I just watch him leave. Why is he leaving us here? Annie always asks. She likes him, but I can't tell him. The guys haven't bugged me about her in a while. But that is changing right about now.
"So, how did you turn into your twin?" We're in a meeting, and everyone is here. Sammy, 'Kaela, the 'Bots, Lennox, the rest of his team, and obviously me.
"We're the same in DNA, mind, and etc. Sammy knows I have nightmares about it every once in a while."
"You still do?"
"Yeah." I think for a moment. "It's more often than it was before, but it's..." I shake my head. "Doesn't matter. Anyway, Annie wants to talk to you guys." I relax, and she takes over, I can feel my hair and eyes changing.
"Hello." Where my voice is light, quiet, and 'musical' according to Annie, hers is deep, seductive, and gets every guy's attention. I mentally look at Ironhide, he isn't impressed by her. Good, I think. He's mine. Wait, what? He's not mine, he's... Would you shut up, Angie? I'm trying to talk here. I roll my eyes. Now you know how I feel. I drift off, ignoring the conversation. When Annie's in control, I don't have nightmares, but I can't trust her enough not to do something stupid. If I'm not watching her constantly...something bad could happen. By the way, we got new 'Bots. Another set of twins, a mad scientist, and some others I haven't met yet. They're out on a mission. Then, I fall asleep.
