Blaster shakes his helm and sighs. “It’s not that I don’t trust ya. It’s just…. Autobots don’t really like his sire.” He moves Overture closer to her as his sparkling inspects the finger he is holding.
“Wanna hold him? He’s pretty chill.” He only let a select few hold Overture. So far only Velocity, Sideswipe and Overture’s sire has held him. He smiled at Flip Sides excitedly, hoping she would want to hold him.
She glanced back up at him a moment, thoughtful, before turning her attention back to Overture, watching with a small smile as he played with her servo in fascination. Now her curiosity was peaked; who in the world had Blaster gotten mixed up with that would cause scorn from their friends in the Autobots?
‘Decepticon’ crossed like a faint whisper through her mind, but that was silly. She’d heard rumors, yes, that from time to time in the past, some bots would rendezvous in secret with some romantic interest on the opposing faction. But Flip Sides was certain Blaster wasn’t into something like that.
Of course not.
“It’s your business, Blaster. If you don’t think it’s the right time to say anything, I’ll accept that,” she said, turning her optics upwards at him. “Just as long as you stay careful with… Whoever it is you’re with. In general, I mean. It’s fine, I promise.”
Flickering her optics, she looked between the two of them at his offer in mild surprise. “Hold him? Really? Well, alright, yes.”
Her smile broadened —albeit it held a quiver of nervousness— as she pushed herself up onto the berth. She hadn’t really held a sparkling before. She had help take care and look after some in her time, but the carriers had understandably been put off by the idea of trusting a femme her size with the physical well-being of their offspring in her arms. She hoped she wouldn’t prove Blaster wrong in trusting her with him.
He smiled at her, thankful that she wasn’t going to ask anymore. Eventually he would be comfortable enough to share who Overture’s sire was but now wasn’t the time.”I promise I’ll be careful. And I promise ya be one of the first I tell when I can.” He grins as he hands Overture to her.
The little sparkling stares up at her and pops a small fist in his mouth. He doesn’t make a noise as he gnaws on his digits, feeling rather comfortable. “He doesn’t move much when he’s held. He’s not like me n the energy department.” Blaster laughs which causes his sparkling to look over at him for a moment. Overture coos softly and turns his attention back to the femme.
