You followed Megatronus through the garden on Cybertron, you were a small Sparkling who enjoyed playing with him. Megatronus turned and stopped holding a hand up to you. He was telling you to stop. But you didn't understand. This ended with you grabbing Megatronus' Servo. He sighed but cracked a smile.

"Here in the garden, let's play a game!" Megatronus exclaimed.

"I'll show you how it's done, Here in the garden, Stand very still" Megatronus poked your nose and you smiled.

"This'll be so much fun!" You exclaimed. Megatronus' smiles.

And then he smiled
That's what I'm after

Megatronus smiles softly before patting your head, and walks off.

A smile in his eyes
The sound of his laughter

Megatronus edges closer to the end of the garden as he left you behind. You're Sire whom you loved (even though he isn't your Sire, but you have a close bond with him).

Happy to listen
Happy to play

Megatronus got ready to go into the portal to earth.

Happily watching him drift away...

He disappeared through the portal.

Happily waiting
All on my own

You stood in the garden where he left you, giggling occasionally as other sparklings kicked their toys around and you had to refrain from moving. A butterfly flew on your head making you giggle.

Under the endless sky
Counting the micro-killiks

You stood there. Waiting, waiting for Megatronus to return to you.

Standing alone
As milli- vorns of years go by

The garden showes obvious changes as Cybertron looked in ruins.

Happily wondering
Night after night

You thought in this state always hoping Megatronus will come back. You're not a Sparkling anymore, but you ached for some sort of attention.

Is this how it works?
Am I doing it right?

You're doubts clouded you as you wondered if you're doing what your "Sire" asked you to do correctly.

Happy to listen
Happy to stay

You looked a little tired, but you didn't allow that to show. You wanted to do this for him.

Happily watching him drift away

You began to think of the times you and Megatronus have hung out. He found you abandoned as a Sparkling in a crate and you were taken in.

You keep on turning pages for people who don't care
People who don't care about you

You were blind to even see Megatronus didn't want you around anymore. He tried to avoid you and even try to deter you away from him.

And still, it takes you ages to see that no one's there
See that no one's there

You waited, waited for ages for him to come back. He never did, you still believed he would come back for you. But the thoughts became less and less probable.

See that no one's there
Everyone's gone on without you...

You began to wait, again and again. This time he'll show up. Any slight noise you heard you turned your head towards only to see other bots that aren't him.

Finally something
Finally news

You turned your head to face the new light source where it showed Optimus Prime talking about the defeat of Megatronus and the 'Cons.

About how the story ends
He isn't free now

You watched the screen with shock, you wished this was all a dream.

Defeated by the bots
With all of his brand new friends

Your faceplate fell and you couldn't believe it.

Isn't that lovely ?
Isn't that cool ?

You began to tear your pedes free from the overturned bramble and ran towards the communication hub with tears.

And isn't that cruel ?
And aren't I a fool to have

You knelt down in in front of the communication hub as it turned off. Lubricant formed in your optics.

Happily listen
Happy to stay

You began to run through all your memories of when you were tricked in standing in this garden.

Happily watching him drift...

Your body began to change. Your eyes turned purple, your wings formed tear streaks appeared on the side of your eyes.

Drift away

You fell on your knees, in tears. You decided you needed to get to earth. And to destroy the mech that abandoned you in this fragging garden for 6 milli- vorns .
