Lucy finished unpacking the boxes as she stretched her arms forward,"What a slow day but a really quiet one, actually." she said to herself as she went up to the second floor where ni-san was writting on a piece of paper.
Lucy walked over to ni-san as she then spoke,"Hey, ni-san.I finished unpacking the boxes, is there anything else that you need me to do?" ni-san looked at me and smiled,"That won't be necesary, Dear.I'll handle the rest.Besides, you did say that you had a few things to do today."
Lucy remembered as she chuckled softly,"Oh, yes.I completely forgoten about that.Well, i'll see you soon." she hugged Ni-san as she then left the library to do some errans.
. . . At the autobot base . . .
Miko listened to her favorite band on her mp3 as she hummed the rythm softly.Jack was talking to arcee: as for Raf, he was with Nana playing video games.
Optimus walked over to Ratchet and Ultra magnus as they watched the humans.
"The children have been acting pretty different lately." Ultra magnus said as he looked at ratchet nod in respons,"Indeed.Must be the change of seasons." Ratchet suggested not knowing what else to say or mention.
"It's not that." nana inturrupted as she looked at them from the railing, "It's december."
"Yes, it's the 12 month of the year." Ratchet said as he crossed his arms.
"Yeah but it's also the month to celebrate christmas!" nana smiled happily.
"Christmas?" Optimus raised his optic ridge confusely.
"You mean you guys don't know about christmas!?!" nana said a bit shocked.
"And what would that be? A ridiculous holiday?" ratchet narrowed his optics at the girl as she flinched a bit.
"It's not ridiculous!" nana held the railing tight as she continued,"Christmas is where you can spend quiality time with your friends and family.And you give presents to each other." nana looked at ratchet as she smiled brightly.
"Yeah." raf stood next to her,"Besides, it's the best time to enjoy the snow with everyone else." raf smiled as nana giggled.
"Sounds interesting." ultra magnus said wanting to know more about the topic.
Ratchet also got interested by the topic as he used his data pad.Optimus to got interested but then he realized something was missing.
"Has anyone seen Lucy?" optimus asked.
Nana gently rubbed her head as she thought,"She said that she was busy today, but I never asked why." she shrugged softly.
Optimus thought for a moment as he then spoke,"Ratchet, would you acompany me to Lucy's home?" ratchet layed down his data pad down as he nodded in respons.
Both of them transformed as they left the base heading towards Jasper.
. . . Lucy's home . . .
Lucy hid the boxes behind her closet as she closed it and went downstairs into the living room.She sat down on the couch as she sighed feeling completely exhausted after finishing her errans.
"So tired.I wonder how the others are doing." lucy relaxed on the couch until she heard a knock on the door.
Lucy stood up from the couch as she then walked over to the door and opened it.
"Optimus, Ratchet?" her eyes widden a bit surprised seing them.
"Hello, Lucy." optimus smiled glad to see that she was doing well.Ratchet smiled softly as he raised his hand gently.
Lucy then motioned her hand for them to enter,"Come in." both of them entered her house as she then closed the door and followed them into the living room.
"So, what made you two visit me?" lucy tilted her head curiously.
"Nana told us that you were busy but with what exactly?" optimus asked a bit curiously.
"Huh? Oh, it's nothing important, really." Lucy smiled.She then sat down on a small sofa,"Besides, this month will be very busy and I mite not show up at base..." Ratchet then spoke before she could finish,"Don't tell me that your into this christmas, are you?"
Lucy stared at ratchet as she then answered,"Of course I am.I've been celebrating this holiday since I was a kid." ratchet rolled his eyes as he looked away.
"Holiday?" optimus suddenly asked.
Lucy nodded,"Yeah, it's the time of the year were we all celebrate, as a family.It's not a bad holiday." lucy pointed out.
"What about the halloween month? ugh..." ratchet groaned at the memory when we all celebrated halloween back at the old base.
Lucy chuckled softly,"October and December are very different, ratchet; In halloween we dress up as scary beings.But on christmas we share our love and kidness to each other." both of them were very drawn by the topic.Ratchet didn't want to admit it but he was liking it so far.
"Have you ever celebrated christmas with anyone?" lucy was caught off guard when optimus asked but she knew at some point one of them would ask.
"I have with ni-san but since I no longer have a family to celebrate with, i guess you mite say it was a lonely holiday for the past few years for me." lucy smiled a bit sad now that she mentioned her family into the conversation.
Optimus and Ratchet looked at each other remembering that lucy had lost her family.
"Lucy, I never ment to bring you into a drepessing mood." optimus apologized as he frowned a bit.
Lucy imidietly shook her head as she looked at optimus,"No, you didn't, optimus.I know you didn't mean to." lucy smiled softly.
"You can celebrate christmas with us back at base." ratchet suddenly said as he glanced at lucy and saw that she was very surprised at what he just said.
"Y-you mean that, ratchet?" lucy asked a bit unsure if he actually ment it.Ratchet looked away a bit nervously as he rubbed his neck,"Well, umm...yes.I would never say no.Since this holiday is very special to you...l-" ratchet was cut off when lucy hugged him from the left side of the couch,"Oh! Thank you, ratchet!" lucy rubbed her cheel against his very cheerfully.She then kissed his cheek as she gently broke the hug.
"This is going to be the best christmas ever!" lucy squeeled softly as she ran up stairs cheerfully like a little child.
Ratchet was completely frozen after lucy kissed him on his left cheek, he slowly placed his fingers on were she kissed him and was unable to form words.Optimus smiled understanding well what ratchet did.
. . . A few hours later . . .
"I really appreciate you two visiting me, it really made my day." lucy smiled as they both stood outside,"Of course.Anything to help a friend." optimus smiled.
"Do you have any plans for tomorrow, lucy?" ratchet asked.
"Hmm, not really.I don't work until next week." lucy crossed her arms in deep thought.
"You don't need to worry on where we are going.I already have the location planned." her eyes widden a bit surprised,"You have?" ratchet nodded softly,"I will pick you up at noon."
"Take care, lucy." optimus said as both of their holoforms dissapeared.
Lucy waved her hand gently as their engines came to life,"See you guys soon!" lucy watched them leave as she then entered her home.
. . . One hour later . . .
Bumblebee came to drop off nana as she then waved goodbye to the autobot.Nana entered Lucy's house as she then went upstairs and into Lucy's bedroom where she was reading a book on her bed.
Lucy looked up at nana as she smiled,"Hey, nana.How was your day with the others?" Lucy asked.Nana sat next to lucy as she then replied,"It was great.Me and raf played video games, and I won two times." nana smiled as she layed down on the bed, she then took her shoes off.
"What about you, Lucy.Did you do anything while you were busy?" nana stared at lucy.
"I've done a lot of things today, nana.And to be honest i'm pretty tired." lucy closed the book as she layed it next to the lamp to her left.
Nana changed her clothes as she got into bed with lucy covering herself with the blanket.Lucy turned off the lamp as she layed down on her bed.
"Sweet dreams, nana." lucy looked at nana,"Night...lucy." nana yawned as she slowly fell asleep.
Lucy smiled as she stared at the ceiling,"I wonder where ratchet will be taking me tomorrow?" Lucy said softly to herself as she yawned very tiredly,"I'll wait until tomorrow." Lucy closed her eyes as she fell asleep soundly.
