Maximus looked at the three and smiled.
"A minicon partner. I've read a lot about those. What was it called? Powerlnking?"
"Yeah. That. Anyway, that could be cool."
"I concur. Maximus and I were just discussing different ways to train his abilities. Having a minicon partner who could help control them manually would be a great service to us."
The medic followed up.
"Excellent. So doc, when would be the best time to get this done? Whenever you're ready, I am. Preferably as soon as possible."
"Primus! It talks!"
Maximus exclaimed, quite surprised. So much so that he jumped backwards and fell flat on his back. Nebula then jumped on to the predacon's chest and looked him in the eyes.
"Yeah I can talk. What about it?"
She said in an assertive tone. Clearly having taken offense to what he said.
"Uh, nothing. It was just... Unexpected."
"And by the way, this it has a name. That's Nebula. If you want me to help you out, you better show some respect. Got it?"
The minicon was being surprisingly assertive, considering that she was talking to a bigger bot. It was clear that regardless of size, she wasn't about to take slag from anyone.
