Machbreaker stays put for a couple moments, frozen in uncertainty. He warms up slightly and at least comes out from his hiding spot, but does not go over to Railfire or in his view yet. If the doc were to look over, he would see that Machbreaker is trembling with anticipation, his entire body having a light vibration. Whether he was prepared to bolt for it or charge in for an attack, it's hard to say, he looks ready for either.
"Zlip, zop?" "Uh, hi?" His voice sounds a bit confused, but doesn't betray a sense of fear.
Railgun's wheel grinds against a panel of metal as Tie-Grabber slowly removes it.
"Yesh!" Tie-Grabber complained. "This is definitely not up to code! I couldn't sabotage this better if I tried!"
"I doubt Vex follow Cybertron building regulations." Railgun retorts, finishing grinding the piece off and starts wielding where the piece used to be.
"Oh not in the slightest, quite barbaric in fact!" He says it quite high and mighty. "But I thought I figured out their system and this blasted beam throws all that away. There's always exceptions, but this is beyond exception, this is dangerous."
"At least it's almost finished. Thirty cycles ahead of schedule."
"Thanks to the new box of scraps! Poor guy. Could have finished this sooner if you didn't send of Machbreaker. His rockets are much better at this."
"Potential endangerment to our plans, we couldn't risk--"
"Speaking of which," Tie-Grabber's tone turns more serious as they finish their work on the wall. "He should have returned already."
The two take some steps back and admire their work. The wall itself looked almost like nothing changed, but the Minicons had changed it so that part of it would slide back and up out of the way. It was almost like a doggy door, albeit a bit more sturdy to prevent cleanup crews from finding it. Now they could get from this room and into a different one quicker than before.
"Perhaps there's more intel than I expected. Let's go get some Energon, bring back some for Machbreaker. No later gone than then for sure."
As they make their way to the cafeteria, the two do stop and take a look towards the medic's place. They notice the door is shut tight, which does not bode well. Still, knowing their brother's skill, they head to get some food. Upon entering however, that's when they notice Juliana and Demolisher are there as well. The two look at each other as the realization dons on them. Machbreaker was trapped in the doc's office alone.
"Whirlp whirlp whirlp click wirlp!" "By scrap and debris! We have to--!" Tie-Grabber almost exclaims in panic, but remembers just enough to keep his voice low. Of course, Railgun cut him off.
"Blurk klunk chrink chrink. Clrank blurp blok blek. Chrink." "We don't have a passage to that area yet and we can't blow down the door. Wait for one of these scrap heads to beat each other senseless and need repairs. We'll get him after that." Railgun grit his teeth as he said this, hating every word but knowing it was the best course of action.
Observing the room, Tie-Grabber sighs, succumbing to Railgun's argument. Working around the various bots, they eventually make it to the counter where rations are served. Tie-Grabber uses his crane arm to snag a couple Energon cubes and pulls them down. They catch the cubes and look around for a place to hang out for a moment. Particularly if any other of the small guys are around; Minicons, cassette formers, Oddball, really anyone else that can speak their tongue. They tended to keep to themselves, but they realized it was good to occasionally socialize with others. Keep minds fresh and new ideas coming.
Whoever they end up going towards, if anyone, as Railgun suspected, it wasn't long until arguments broke out and violence was seeming near by.
