IC - Crosswise: The Autobot had sat on the side of the mountain as he watched the beetles eat the remaining Spitter Bats. He chuckled as the Autobots ran, but what came out of his mouth was a voice that was unrecognizable. He snarled as soon as he saw the rest of Alpha Unit arrive. Keeping himself hidden against a large rock, he closed his optics and seemingly deactivating. A moment later, Crosswise looked around for the rest of his team. The scout carefully slid down the slope and landed right behind Alphonus.

IC - Flatline: Two patched-up Vehicons returned to the clearing. Their gangly arms held a small assortment of items. Curious, the combat medic gingerly took one of the items. The metallic being held a small device in his hands. He tapped the handle of what seemed to be an emergency flare. However, it wasn't of Decepticon design. If it was, there would have been spikes at the top in order to increase its combat effectiveness. Flatline stored it in a cavity on his back, and sat back against a tree. The wait was unbearable for him.
