-Thankfully Motormaster isn’t on his tail and Sideswipe takes his advantage with stride. Distance accomplished, he tries to open his communication line to Blue. The damn thing still crackling from being busted earlier by Motormaster’s heavy hit.
Slowing to a halt on the side of the road, the frontliner tries again and again. If the large semi isn’t chasing him, he’s fairly certain that he’s still dealing with Blue. He’s just hoping that he can at least get something through to figure out where Bluestreak is and what’s happening.-
::Bl… -ue? Bl….? Where a-…. you?::
Driving at a speed he doesn’t normally do, especially since he’s so used to having to watch out for humans on the road, the Datsun has no plans of slowing down. Even with Motormaster being much slower than him, he’s not surprised when the ‘con is able to barrel through everything on his path and get closer to him.
Hearing Motormaster’s taunts, he only gives a louder rev of his engine as he kicks things up a notch; driving faster and silently telling the Decepticon to “eat his dust”. He’s getting close to his way out and once he gets there, he can focus on meeting back up with Sides.
As an incoming ping comes onto his comm. lines, he opens up the private comm and hears static along with Sideswipe’s broken words.
:: Getting Motormaster off my tail. I should meet with you soon.::
Turning off the comm, he hopes that gets through. With the way the ‘con is driving through everything, he’s getting dangerously close. When the Datsun finally spots the tunnel he’s been heading for, one too small for someone like Motormaster to go through, he wastes no time in speeding up more and going through it. Even if the ‘con did try to continue to chase after him, he’d have to take another route to get to the same path as him and Blue’s more than sure the ‘con wouldn’t be able to catch up to him.
Making his way through the tunnel, his next course of action is making sure Sides gets back to the Ark okay.
Motormaster charged straight ahead, ignoring trees, trashcans, railings and even the road itself as he headed straight towards Bluestreak. Although he’d never catch the Datsun on a straight run, the Autobot had to weave his way along the asphalt and Motormaster was slowly gaining on him.
When Bluestreak disappeared into the narrow tunnel, it was too late for Motormaster to break in time.He transformed and spun around, digging his sword into the ground to stop his trajectory. With sparks flying and scraping all the paint off his knees he finally came to a stop, with the overhead archway of the tunnel gently bumping into the back of his head.
He turned around and yelled at the disappearing tail lights ‘SLAGGER’.
He transformed back into truck mode with a painful rattle and clank as his outer plating had shifted out of place. He moodily went back along the path he’d come down, following the trail of destruction and looking for sideswipe, but unable to find any sight of him.
He sulkily drove over and flattened a few parked cars like a tank before giving up the search.
