Chapter One: A Meeting
Dark sighed as he lay stretched out on the rock which had been warmed by the noonday sun, his eyes closed. His massive black and dark purple wings were spread out beside him. It felt so good to be soaking up the midday summer sun especially after a long hard winter. Being black and deep purple it was easy for the male to warm himself. He yawned lazily. It was easy to be lazy during the summer with easy hunting. It helped that he was a higher rank than even Starscream.
Speaking of the male one of Dark's favorite past-time doings was to pester him. He found great joy and entertainment when he did. As Dark laid here he growled when a shadow fell over his sunny rock and half expected it to be Screamer. The massive beast opened his red eyes, steam pouring out of his nostrils as he lifted his massive head. "What is it Soundwave?" He growled. Dark's mood had instantly changed from content and relaxed to annoyed.
"Lord Megatron wants to speak with you." Dark inwardly groaned. He hated dealing with his father and planned (Despite being family) to wipe him out once he had enough forces to do so. That and energy. Dark hefted himself to his feet.
"Tell him I will be at the cave in a few moments." Dark replied as he stretched his wings out to their full twenty feet length. With several powerful flaps of his wings he lifted off the ground. The Second-in-command tilted his body as he flew towards said cave. A few minutes later he landed at the entrance.
"You wanted me father?" Megatron glanced up from where he lay and walked over.
"Yes. A femme has been spotted rather close to our borders. I want you to go and take a look."
Dark dipped his head in a nod. "Of course father." He said.
A few moments later Dark was in the skies once more. As he flew, he became aware of the loneliness that had settled in his spark. He sighed softly and wished he had a mate, someone to keep him company and didn't care about his good looks or his rank as many a femme would.
Dark tilted his body slightly and began to bank left. The handsome male loved to fly. It was one of his favorite things to do to pass time. Other than annoying the hell out of Starscream. He loved every bit of flying from riding the thermals, to take offs, to the mere sensation of flying. But his most favorite thing to do was to dive. Dark pulled in his wings and instantly felt the effects of gravity take over, pulling him ever faster towards the ground. Now, he was several thousand feet from the said ground so it'd take a several minutes. Five minutes later he could see the tops of the trees as he flew through the cloud-deck. Something was wrong. He was enjoying his joy-div so much so that he didn't notice the ground, or the female dragon who was frantically getting out of his way. The ground had rushed up so fast that Dark didn't have any time to open his wings. His body collided with hard ground with a sickening thud and the world went black....
