"Me and Grunt already had a similar conversation. I think you and me have been on enough missions to be able to tell when something is an accident or not. And something tells me that the smoke we're off to investigate is no accident either."
"It's not just that. I just get the feeling that one of us would have seen smoke by now. Especially me. Before me and Grunt found Dinoboss, I was flying quite high up and I could barely see the smoke from Dinoboss's landing site, let alone that big pillar of smoke."
As Metalingus, Grunt and Dinoboss made their way through the thick foilage of the forest, some finding it more harder than others, the comm lines finally became clearer as both parties began to draw near to each other...
+++COMM to Grunt+++ "Grunt, it's Reaper. Me and Torrent are heading back to your location. We'll be approaching on foot. As we investigated the smoke, something shot me and damaged one of my wings...I'm grounded. I suspect we're being followed. Reaper out." +++COMM+++
Dinoboss transformed and increased his scanners frequencies to attempt getting the others position.
"They are still out of my scanner range, which has been drastically reduced thanks to the large sums of energon radiation on this planet. When they do get in range we will won't have the most time in the world to react. I suggest you give them our coordinates and let them come to us while we set up a defensive grid."
Reaper continued running through the forest, ducking, diving and weaving through the trees.
+++COMM to Grunt+++ "We're surrounded by trees. Lots and lots of trees. It's pretty thick where we are, and I think the ones following us are pretty big, so they're going to have trouble getting through. As far as I can tell, they haven't made it to the treeline yet. I'm sending you our co-ordinates now, we're heading back to the graveyard area." +++COMM+++
Gorgon stomped up to the treeline. The trees looked really thick, which could cause a problem for him and Scathe. Gorgon turned and looked at Scathe, then back at the trees. He stood staring at the closest tree before moving closer and putting his hands on it and pushing. With a loud grunt, Gorgon was able to push the tree over, sending it crashing to the ground.
"Me Gorgon say we need to clear a path. You Scathe help Me Gorgon."
With that, Gorgon started to make his way into the forest, knocking down small trees and ripping up undergrowth that would hinder his progress.
"Save your Energon Gorgon!", growled Scathe still in his hybrid tank mode, "Let's do this the easy way!" Turning his massive turret, Scathe fired into the forest no too wide of Gorgon. The blast scattered thick trees, blasting sections off and causing some to topple..
