7/4/08 (FOURTH OF JULY BABY!!)
Here's a cute lil Armada drabble x3
Hotshot / Red Alert / fireworks
It was the fourth of July and all the kids were excited. Hotshot scratched the back of his head in confusion as he turned to his lover/bondmate, Red Alert, and asked, "Hey Red, what's the big deal with this 'fourth of July' thing?" The blue mech shrugged as he replied, "Good question Hotshot, but I really have no clue what's so special about it." The kids gasped in mock suprise, of course they knew their Transformer friends would have no idea why this holiday was so significant.
"The fourth of July is the day we celebrate our independence as Americans." Alexis stated, as though she had been reciting it all day. Carlos grinned widely as he bounced excitedly and exclaimed, "And we get to blow fireworks up!" Hotshot looked at Red Alert as he asked, "Fire..works? What are those?" Once again the blue Transformer shrugged and looked to the kids for an explanation. "Don't worry you guys, we'll show you what they are tonight." Rad said with a smile. Hotshot smiled back, quickly glancing over at his bondmate and gently grabbing ahold of his hand.
"Well this sounds interesting..." Red Alert murmured. Once night had fallen the kids arrived with their arms full of fireworks, firecrackers, sparkelers, and other fun stuff to play with. All the Autobots sat back as they watched the kids ready everything up for them. Hotshot snuggled up close to Red Alert, giving his lover a smile as the older mech kissed his nose gently. Finally the fireworks were lit and they soared into the black night sky, a peiricing whistle shattering the night air as it explode into color and sound.
Hues of red, green, and blue burst before their optics as the Autobots ooh'd and ahh'd at the colors. Hotshot especially liked the fireworks, his optics captured by the bright colored lights. But Red Alert really wasn't paying much attention to those at all, instead he watched all the colors bounced of his lover's yellow skin and how his baby blue optics lit up with delight and awe. It was adorable really and reminded him of just how young Hotshot really was. Red smiled as he leaned over and gently took hold of Hotshot's chin, drawing his optics away from the light show in the sky.
"Red?" Hotshot asked, staring up into the red visor. The blue mech smiled again, lips placing a soft and tender kiss upon his lover's lips. Hotshot smiled and leaned into it, hands slipping around Red Alert's waist as he pulled his older bondmate against him. They kissed with the fireworks exploding brightly in the backround, showering them in beautiful colors. But neither of them really cared, all that mattered was each other and the kiss they shared. Finally they broke apart and Hotshot once again snuggled deep into Red Alert's arms. The last of the fireworks were set off and Hotshot whispered, "Look Red, aren't the fireworks beautiful?"
"Hotshot, you are more beautiful than any firework in the universe." Red Alert replied with a fond smile on his lips. Hotshot looked up at him with a blush as he smiled back and intertwined their fingers together. Yes this holiday definately was something special. And neither one could find a better way to spend it.
