    Lexi wrote:Lexi was quietly struggling to get a handle on her emotions while Laz informed LH of their progress thus far. She spared another glance at Leo, seeing the despair in his eyes, and knew his fears all too well. She wished she could comfort him, but knew like her, that wouldn't be possible until he could see his brothers with his own eyes.

    And soon, they were no longer alone. It seemed some of the Foot ninjas had came to gawk at their captive. As much as she wanted to lash out at them, she couldn't blow their cover. The turtles were counting on them. She followed Laz back up the steps, feeling her chest tighten as she recalled his earlier mentioning of a lab. God.. how she was hoping they would not find any of them in there!! They weren't animals!! It was taking everything she had to hold her composure as she followed Laz towards the dreaded destination...

    As soon as they had a moment alone, he stopped to make sure Lexi was holding up. "You doing alright?" He asked as he headed to one of the decorated elevators.

    He pushed the button and soon the doors open. He stepped inside and leaned against the wall as they went up to the labs.

    Once they were safely out of the scrutiny of anyone's sight, Lexi slumped back against the elevator wall, trying to gather herself. Inside, she was falling apart. The unknowing and fear of loss was slowly consuming her. But she couldn't let Laz know that, or anyone. She couldn't even admit it to herself, otherwise she would break.

    She gave a small nod and pushed off the rail, knowing she had to stand strong. "Yeah, I'm okay." She lied, keeping her tone soft and quiet, and quickly shifted the attention onto him. "Thanks for doing this." She said, deep sincerity in her tone. "I know this can't be easy for you. But thank you. The guys wouldn't even stand a chance without you."

    Laz flashed her an unseen grin at that. "Yeah. Now trying telling Raph that." He said as the doors open. He stepped out of the elevator and started making his way down the hall, peeking in each room. It was when they got to the surgical room-now known as Bishops office-he stopped and looked at Lexi before he opened the door.

    "This is the surgical room..." He told Lexi. "Why don't you let me go in first." If the turtles were in there, he didn't want her to have to see them.

    April O'Neil wrote:April looked over at Casey and gave him a half smile. "You never know. Maybe being with this guy will calm her down a little. Don't be so quick to judge." She told him. She then reached over and rubbed his back a little to try and calm his nerves and partly to calm her own. Then she heard LH's com go off and heard Laz's voice. So one of them was found, but the mention of heading to the labs earned a deep frown.

    "where's Leo? Can we go in and get him? Can they get him out?"


    Casey was to angry to even take Aprils comment into consideration and he said nothing back to her about it. As far as he was concerned the guy was guilty until proven innocent. He was though enjoying April rubbing his back and shifted closer towards her, rolling his shoulders. It did little to calm him but it helped distract him a bit.

    That was until Laz came over the walkie talkie and informed them that they had found Leonardo. He felt a sense of relief and dread at the same time. They haven't found the others and were now going to search the labs... He knew what that meant and he felt like he couldn't take much more. He turned around and kicked the back of the couch and then leaned on his arms as he tightly griped the back of it.

    What if Leonardo was the only one left? It would be devastating, Leonardo valued his family over anything else. Casey believed that Leonardo wouldn't be able to live through a loss like that.. Though he was jumping to conclusions as was usual for him.

    He then overheard Leatherheads next order and as much as he wanted to rush in there and get Leonardo out, he had no choice in the matter. So he continued leaning onto the couch while trying to control his thoughts.

    When Casey kicked the couch, Rini jumped a mile in the air with a small yelp. She looked over at Casey as she tried to calm her nerves. "Hi." She said softly to Casey. "My name's Rini. Donatello's girlfriend." She said figuring it was time that she introduce herself. She spoke quietly and sadly. She stood close to her friend who right now was the only bit of comfort she had through all of this.

    Lexi managed a little chuckle at that. "Heh.. I'm going to make you guys friends before it's over." She said, almost joking. Yeah, she knew how stubborn Raph was, but after this, how could any of them deny that Laz was a good guy?


    But that brief, light-hearted moment was soon gone as they reached the laboratories, and they walked down the old halls. She suddenly felt nauseous as the strong smell of alcohol and other medical scents overtook her. When they reached the surgical room, she felt her heart stop when Laz asked if he could go first. It took her a moment, but she gave a faint nod. "..but I'll be close behind you.."

    Casey nearly jumped himself as the Asian woman jumped off the couch. He was surprised to see that the two girls were sitting there and had no idea they had been there. They were so quiet and though he slightly knew Fraya, he had no idea of what to make of her new friend.

    But he was also surprised to hear that this woman, Rini was Donatello's girlfriend and he wanted to know what dating site the guys had discovered. They seemed to all be getting girls not just any girls but hot ones at that! While he himself hadn't had a date in over a year..

    He barely managed a small smile and nod at the young woman. "Casey.. Casey Jones." Was all he said back at her.

    "Nice to meet you. Don's mentioned you a few times." She then got quiet again and looked down at her hands. She was really worried about the guys and wished that she could contact them, talk to them if only for a moment to know that they were ok.

    Laz opened the door and peeked inside. At first he didn't see anyone, good, the last thing he wanted was to have to explain why he was there. He walked in the rest of the way and looked around. That's when he spotted Raph. He wasn't looking good,and he didn't want to expose Lexi to the sight. He quickly turned around and pushed her away from the room.

    "You don't need to go in there, babe."

    Lexi followed close behind, keeping as quiet as she could despite how uncomfortable this particular room made her. At first, like Laz, she didn't see anything, and she was deeply relieved by that. But that relief was short lived. Her attention was soon drawn to the bright overhead light on the far side of the room, and she could see someone strapped to the metal table, just as Laz began pushing her out of the room...


    ..her heart suddenly stopped and her legs went weak, her breath catching in her throat. "No..let me go!" Lexi cried, but still mindful to keep her voice low. She fought and pushed herself past Laz, stumbling over to where the mutilated form was laying. As she got close enough to realize who it was, her world came crashing down. Her eyes grew wide in horror, and she was unable to stop the tears.


    "Oh my God.. Raph!" She sobbed, taking in the horrific, bloody mess. His plastron had been sawed open, blood gushing from the deep wound. The bloody saw still sat close by, adding to the gruesome scene. Acting as quickly as her jerky hands would allow, she grabbed a sheet and gently pressed it to the wound, trying to slow the bleeding. Her free hand moved up to push up her mask, just enough for him to see her eyes.


    "I'm here.. babe.." She whispered against his cheek, choking back a sob. "We're going to get you out of here." Her fingers gently caressed his face, and she pressed a kiss against his cheek before fighting with the straps on his wrists. She flashed a frantic look at Laz. "Help me.. get these off!"

    Laz stood in the doorway to make sure no one came walking in. He glanced over his shoulder at Lexi and Raph. He felt bad for her, and wondered if Raph would even survive being moved. When she asked for help he hesitated before going to her side. "We can't just move him, Lexi. And he'll slow us down, we have to locate the others first so that the everyone knows where to head when they get here."

    But crossed his mind that Raph might not make it till they got back to him. He was frantically trying to think of what to do. Finally, he pulled the straps off of Raph's body.

    Donatello watched his father leave, still very confused. Since when has Master Splinter ever believed anything the Shredder has told him? Or trusted him at all, for that matter. It didn't make any sense. None of this did. And he still wasn't in the mood to make any deals with the Shredder if that's what his ex-employer had to talk about.

    He shook his head to clear those thoughts and turned to Mike. "You're telling me..." he answered and trailed off, still trying to comprehend what just happened. Apparently, they were still in the tower and Splinter could walk around as he pleased. '...the shell...?' He decided not to waste anymore energy in thinking about it anymore right now because his headache was coming back.


    Oroku Saki wrote:A few moments after Splinter left, Shredder walked in. He was wearing his casual robes, hoping to appear less threatening. "How are you feeling?" He asked them, doing well to portray sincerity in his voice.

    Speak of the devil...

    No sooner had Don answered his brother Saki came in. And Don wasn't put at ease at all by the Shredder's cheerful mood. In fact, if he thought hard enough about it, he would think it was more of a gloat. And that really angered Donatello. How dare he?!

    He turned towards the man with a slight glare, not answering him at first. Anything he said would probably get him in even more trouble. He was an emotional wreck before, but now true anger was setting in.

    "Like you actually care," he mumbled, not looking at the Shredder as he spoke. He kept his eyes locked on the floor.

    Raphael had been floating between consciousness for what seemed like an eternity to him. The pain was so great that his eyes would suddenly go black and he would see a combination of strange scenes. Sometimes it would be him back at the Lair training with his brothers and then would turn to him being the Nightwatcher while riding his motorcycle around New York.

    He slowly began to notice he was completely alone in the room between his blackouts and soon had a problem telling which reality was the real one. He eyes shut again only this time he was in Lexi's old apartment on the couch. He waited til she came out of her bedroom in that short black dress that he loved so much.

    She walked over to him, swaying her hips from side to side as if she were taunting him. He grinned up at her as she took a seat next to him with her thighs touching his. This was certainly more to his liking and leaned closer to her.

    'I'm here.. babe..' She said and he chuckled as he put an arm around her waist. Then suddenly he felt a touching sensation on his face but her words didn't seem to match what was going on which confused him. "Help me.. get these off!" She said almost as if she were afraid.

    He gave her a bewildered look before replying.. "Wha'..?" It was then that his eyes fluttered opened and was met by a familiar spot light. He was here again?! He wondered why it was that he couldn't just stay in that world, even if it wasn't real or maybe this was all just a long nightmare.. As he turned his head he saw someone and his immediate reaction was to jerk away but he suddenly found that his straps were undone and he nearly fell off the table.

    His breathing was labored and sounded more hesitant as he began to shake again. He tried hard to control it as he clenched his teeth and fists. His eyes stared up at the ceiling, it was so hard to focus. He only assumed that whoever was touching him had to be ninja's getting ready to move him again. He could hardly stand the pain anymore this was worse then being executed!

    He wasn't at all aware that it was Lexi and Laz trying to save him and why would he. He would never think it possible for her to even make it in or even attempt to. He began to speak again, his voice was horse and harsh. "Why..don't ya...fuckin'.. kill...meh already?!" He had some fight left in him though he knew there would be noway he could get himself out of this hellhole. So he opted for the next best option..

    Michelangelo: And Mike's reaction mirrored Don's. Even in his dazed state, he was not buying Shredder's act. He glared at their enemy, though he was inwardly scared to death. He knew what this man was capable of, and knew he could lash out at any moment. His unsteady gaze shifted to the nightstand.. hoping to find his chucks there, but apparently they had been stripped of their weapons. Perfect. Once again, his eyes fixated on Saki. "Where's.. Leo and Raph?" He repeated, since his father's answer had been less than short.

    Shredder: Shredder didn't expect them to be happy to see him, and shrugged off any attitude that was given to him. "Your brothers are...Alive. And so are your women. Any more questions before we get started?"

    Donatello: Don managed to look at their enemy again. He would listen to what the man had to say, but that was it! "What do you want?" His exasperated tone was evident in his voice. He just wanted to get this over with.

    Gordon wasn't entirely sure how he missed she meant spilling Casey's secret to the gangs. he frowns a bit and watches Angel taking a deep breath and he hoped he could talk her out of such a threat "I don't think that would be a good idea... even if a lot of them may not wonder your sources... Others would. And question you.. or worse. And let's not forget it would not just be him they would target. Casey's identity needs to be a secret from everyone, if not, it could not only get him hurt.. but all of those he's close to. You don't want that, do you?"

    Shredder pulled a chair close and sat down in front of the two. "I have big plans for this city, and frankly, I can't be bothered worrying about you four getting in my way, I've go enough going on as it is." He stated. I've told Splinter of my plans and he seems to be on board." He lied. Splinter didn't know anything other then shredder said everyone was fine and welcome to live in luxury in his tower. "You two are the only ones that I feel can be reasoned with, the others. Well lets face it, they're...expendable. You two how ever, Donatello with your great mind and Michelangelo with your...talents are useful to me."

    Lexi: "I'm not.. leaving him here!" Lexi cried, and continued to fight with the straps and buckles that held him to the table. "They'll finish him off.." But luckily Laz gave in, and assisted her with undoing the numerous straps. She was aware that it would be dangerous to move him in his condition, but it would be certain death if he stayed on that table and the mad scientist returned. She was relieved when he started to wake, but it was clear that he didn't recognize them. Her heart shattered all over again, hearing him plead with them to just finish him off. <q>"Babe.. it's me!" She tried to get through to him, reaching down to give his hand a squeeze. <q> "We're going to get you out of here.." She promised him, and looked at Laz. "See if you can find some pain killers.."

    Angel: Angel just shrugged at that. "I don't know...Maybe I do. But I'm not going to say anything as long as he behaves himself."

    Bishop: 'This is a bad idea' Laz thought to himself. And then things got worse. Bishop walked through the door and glared angrily at the two 'ninjas'. "What the hell do you think you are doing!?" He yelled and walked up to them, pulling Lexi away from Raph. "Who told you you could be in here? And what do you think you are doing moving him!? Put him back on the table NOW!"

    Donatello: Just hearing the Shredder tell them that Splinter was on-board was enough for a huge red flag. This couldn't be their father. Recently, Splinter had warned them about how manipulative Saki was. Leo almost fell for the same act and Don actually did. Although he didn't do it by choice. But if Master Splinter agreed with this man...something wasn't kosher at all. He glanced at Mike, hoping he wasn't buying into this.

    Michelangelo: But Shredder was dead wrong. Mike may be gullible at times, but he was not stupid! And the way he talked about his brothers.. expendable.. and Splinter was on board?! What the shell was happening? He tried to push himself up from the bed, but was quickly reminded of how injured he was. He just glared at Shredder. "I'm not joining you."

    Gordon breaths inwardly."He may be being an idiot, but that doesn't mean he deserves everything coming down on his head like that. The lady over here, April.. she could get hurt and I'd hope you wouldn't want that on your conscience... I would like to know you wouldn't want anything awful happening to her... or anyone else Casey may know." he thought back to when his ex-wife was trying to be the voice of reason in their marriage and he failed miserably in listening to the pleas because she simply wanted to save their marriage. he had let work consume him... and here he was now... trying to do be the voice of reason for Angel. He felt a little ill at that, but he held it down.
    Lexi suddenly found herself snatched away from Raph, but despite the fear she was feeling, she tried to play it cool. "We have orders to move him. You would be wise not to question Saki's authority."

    Shredder: Shredder chuckled at Mike and shook his head. "You don't understand. I'm not asking you to join me...I'm telling you you will." Shredder stood up from the chair and folded his arms. "My personal doctor will be in to see you a little later. Until then get some rest." By 'personal doctor' he meant the same guy that had put Splinter in to his trance. Once that was done, he would force the two to battle to the death with Leo. They would then be taken out of their trance to see what they had done, then Shredder would make them do the same with their dear master Splinter.

    Laz quickly stepped in and bowed to Bishop. "She means...Master Shredder needs him moved. He needs this room for other purposes." Laz said hoping that Bishop would just agree.

    Bishop: Bishop eyed the two. "Is that so? I'm going to have a talk with that man!" He spat and kicked Raph hard before storming out of the room to find Shredder.

    Angel: Angel looked over at April and shook her head. "No I guess not. So, if he doesn't want people getting hurt he better play nice." She said and kissed Gordon's cheek.

    Donatello: Donatello was greatly relieved Mike saw through the charade. But it still didn't change anything. It looked like they'd be forced to work with him, and there was nothing they could to about it. But Don wouldn't be so willing this time. He made that solemn promise. He WOULD NOT make the same mistake twice. He just kept looking at Mike, wondering how they would get out of this never-ending mess. And he also knew 'resting' wouldn't come easily. Especially after this little talk.

    Gordon "What if I wanted a level playing field with him? Wouldn't be very fair of me to expect him to just give in to every demand... I'm a cop... playing fair is what I'm supposed to do."

    Angel: Angel chuckled at that. "Yer a cop in new York. No cop here plays fair. But fine if you care that much I'll just shoot him if fucks with ya, then no one else gets hurt, just him!"

    Michelangelo: "No, I won't!" Mike once again replied, folding his arms, wincing as he did so, and pouting his lips like a child who didn't get his way. He watched as Shredder headed towards the door, then shifted his gaze to Don. "We.. need to find a way out.."

    Shredder: Shredder shook his head at the two as he left the room and locked the door behind him.

    Raphael: Raphael was still confused he had heard the woman ninja's pleas but believed it was his mind playing tricks on him again. Like he was now imagining her voice. "Yer'...liein'..!" He managed to whisper back at the voice he didn't care if they thought he was crazy or not. He barely noticed when Bishop came into the room and pulled the woman off of him but now his mind was beginning to believe there was a glimmer of hope for him or it could all just be yet another dream.. But he certainly felt that kick to his side and screamed in pain, just moving alone hurt like hell. He was then left alone again with them and wondered if he would be taken back to the cold damp dungeon.

    Lexi: Lexi winced as Raph took a hard kick from the man, but at least their diversion seemed to work. Once the scientist left the room, Lexi was quick to move to Raph's side. "We need to get you out of here." She said, caressing his cheek. She knew he probably didn't have the strength to walk, so it looked like she and Laz would be carrying him. She gave Laz a frantic look. "We need to hide him somewhere."

    Gordon "Angel, he's one of the good guys.. we need them more than ever..." he gave her a bit of a pleading look. Not something he did really and, it was kind of pathetic at that.

    Donatello: Don's glare followed Saki to the door until he disappeared on the other side of it. Sighing defeatedly, he turned back to Mike, his gaze softening. "I know." Slowly he rose from the bed, inspecting the room. His own body was aching, but he didn't let that stop him from trying to find a way out.

    Laz: Laz was pacing the place trying to come up with a plan, they had to hide him before Bishop got to Shredder. "Ok...ok...ok..I know! Get him back on the gurney and strap him in." He instructed and started to lift Raph off the ground. "We have to get him upstairs to the roof, from there someone can come grab him."

    Angel: Angel smiled wide at that. "oh my god you are so cute!" She said and planted a kiss on his lips. "Ok fine, no killing Casey."

    Michelangelo: It took every ounce of willpower Mike had, but after several attempts, he managed to push himself up off the bed, crying out as he did so. God, every muscle in his body was on fire! Not to mention, the headache that was literally moving him to tears. Using the walls to brace himself, he limped along the room, feeling and searching for any secret passageways. "Did.. they take our weapons?" It was a stupid question, really. But he'd been out of it for quite a while.

    Raphael: You know with his shell putting him on a straight gurney may not be the best idea)

    Donatello: Don stopped his search and rushed to his brother's side when he got up from the bed. Making sure Mikey was firmly supported with his arms, he nodded. "Yeah, they did." And he hated it. If it did come down to fighting, he didn't stand a chance without his weapon. And Mike shouldn't even be UPRIGHT in his condition. "Mikey, let me help you back over to the bed, okay? I'll keep looking around. You need to rest." And without waiting for an answer, he started helping Mikey over to the bed again.

    Lexi: Lexi sniffled quietly, and wiped at her tears, giving a small nod at Laz. Though, she was not looking forward to strapping him down again! She just hoped she could get through to Raph, make him understand. She helped Laz get him to his feet, and helped him onto the gurney. "Babe.. we're going to have to strap you down again." She told him, squeezing his hand. "But I promise you, I'll take them off as soon as we can."

    Gordon blinks a bit at Angel's reaction and chuckles allowing the kiss. No harm done. Hopefully. Though perhaps he should keep an eye over his shoulder from time to time.. "Heh... I guess I'll have to remember that."

    Michelangelo: ..and Mike wouldn't argue. It just hurt too dang bad to be standing, though, he really hated feeling so helpless at the moment. Especially when they needed to be finding a way out. With a deep sigh, he settled back into the bed with his brother's assistance, suppressing the tears as he looked up at Don. "Do.. you think Leo and Raph are really okay? ..and the girls?"

    Angel: "Guess so." But soon the place filled with the sound of Laz's voice once again. "We found Raph." He said. "He's had a run in with a saw isn't looking good. We're bringing him to the roof, someone get a copter or something over here quick." Angel looked at Gordon. "Hey, yer a cop, doesn't the force have a helicopter?"

    Donatello: Don gave Mike the most reassuring smile he could muster, nodding. "I'm sure they are." However, he wasn't so sure about the girls. But with that deep bonding connection all the brothers had, he was pretty certain they were still alive. However, he had no way of knowing what condition they were in. Even if they were only hanging on by a thread. He made Mike as comfortable as he could by adjusting the bedding somewhat to support his brother's body better.

    Gordon glances from Angel a moment as Laz' voice came over the comm again, then at Angel's brilliant idea "I... well, yea.. but there's usually protocols involved in using them. I can't just waltz in and take one...." theoretically.

    Raphael: Raphael grunted as he was put upright, it felt as if his insides were heavy and pulling him down with great force. His heart beat faster and every so often he would get a breath stopping pain. He didn't resist much but as he was placed on the gurney and heard the word straps, he started to struggle. It scared him to death to be strapped down once more, only to be tortured again. He felt the familiar squeeze of her hand and began to tremble badly. God he so wanted it to be her, even if it was incredibly dangerous... it wasn't like he was thinking clearly anymore. His eyes seem blurred and all he could see were their dark masks.

    Angel: Angel rolled her eyes. "Well I think it's time you play bad cop and steal a helicopter. It's for a good cause." She added with a grin. "I'll come with you!"

    Leatherhead growled a bit dangerously hearing the news about Raphael, his teeth grinding a bit as he attempts to control the beast fighting to take control of him. He managed to bite it back, though he couldn't say the same for the communicator in his hand. he narrows his eyes turning his gaze towards Gordon and Angel. "I suggest you do it."
    Laz: Laz started to strap Raph down, he motioned to Lexi to grab the large white sheet that was behind her. "Shredder had a habit of burying people in the garden. We just have to play it cool, act like we're bring Raph to get buried and we shouldn't have any problems." He looked down at Raph and took his mask off so he could see who he was. "You need to be as still as possible, ok?"

    Lexi: "Okay.. no straps.." She tried to soothe him, unable to take his heart-breaking reaction to the words. She could overhear Laz on the communicator, but her full focus was still on Raph. As dangerous as it was, she removed most of her mask, exposing her face, hoping it would be some sort of comfort to him. But it seemed that Laz was on a different page than her, and began strapping him down. She worked with undoing them, giving him a pleading look.. "No straps.."

    Gordon looked at the gator.. the comm.. and the gator again.. then looks to Angel. "Sounds like a plan." he stood up offering to take her hand so they could head out.

    Angel: Angel took Gordon's hand and quickly headed out. She hoped that Gordon new how to actually fly the thing but if not, they could just wing it, how hard could it be?

    Casey Jones: He turned around at hearing the alarming message over the walkie talkie, his eyes widened in shock. Those bastards tried to butcher Raph, his eyes grew blurred from a flash of anger but suddenly hearing that Gordon could possibly get a helicopter caused him to turn to the couple. He may not like him but he sure needed him but before he could say anything to the man he was gone. "Thank God we gotta coopter..!" He said out loud more to himself then anyone else. "We could maybe even get the other guys up there er' somethin'.." He added but wasn't sure if that would be possible.

    Laz: Laz put his mask back on and grabbed the white sheet. "Fine but he better stay still." He said, a little irritated that he was trying to help and Raph was complaining about straps. Of course he couldn't possibly know what Raph was going through so he quickly took a bit to calm down. After he was more calm and the straps were off of Raph he laid the sheet over his body and head. "Lets get going."

    Raphael: Raphael had a hard time recognizing Laz's face as he looked like most men here, all he could really make out was the hair color and eyes but couldn't deny that things were becoming more familar to him. Especially when Lexi removed part of her mask and he would know those beautiful blue eyes from anywhere, it was her it had to be! Even if it wasn't he didn't care and tried to weakly reach for her face, he wanted to touch her at least one more time... Tears were welling up in the corner of his eyes but he fought against it and was relieved when she undid the straps. "Thanks...babe.." He barely managed to say above a weak whisper. He would cooperate but was still a little unsettled about the sheet being placed over his face.

    Gordon is quite capable of flying the copters.. maybe he doesn't do it often, but he is capable. He turns the flashlight from his belt on as they went back through the lair, the same way they came and back to the car.

    Angel: Once they got back to the car, Angel jumped in the passenger seat and buckled up. "So where do they keep it? Is it locked up?" She asked, hoping that this wouldn't be too hard to get. She knew a few people that were able to get into almost any lock and would call them if needed. But she new the less people involved the better.

    Lexi: Finally, it seemed that Raph recognized her. She kissed his snout, and whispered reassurances to him before Laz placed the sheet over his body. "I'll be right here beside you." She promised him, still holding to his hand as they began pushing the gurney out of the room. Her free hand was still applying pressure to the wound, hoping to slow the bleeding. He had lost so much, and she was concerned about any possible internal damage.

    Leatherhead dropped what was left of his comm on the table and watched the two head off. Wandering from the lab, he looked to the others who still had comms. April and Fraya "I am afraid we are down to three communicators." he lowers his head a tad and resigns himself to taking a seat on the floor within hearing range of the other two communicators.

    Laz: Laz pushed him to the elevator and then inside once the doors opened. He then pushed the button to the roof. "They'll probably be people up there." He informed as he slipped his gun out of the leg of his pants, he then opened up a pouch that was on his belt and screwed the silencer on the pistol.

    Michelangelo: Mike managed a weak smile up at his brother, watching as he fussed with trying to make him comfortable. "Thanks, bro." He managed to say, pulling the blanket tighter around him. "At least.. we're in this together." Because he certainly didn't do too well alone.

    Lexi: Lexi was certainly hoping they wouldn't need the gun, but was thankful that Laz had it, nonetheless. She had left her purse with her pistol in Laz' car, since she figured it wouldn't mesh with her uniform. Surely the Foot girls didn't carry purses, she thought.

    Raphael: Raphael savored the kiss and felt a little better with her reassurances and finally saw nothing but white sheet over his face. He gripped Lexi's hand for dear life as he was wheeled through the hallway and onto the elevator. It was hard from him not to shutter from the pain but he tried his best to prevent it, though he was slowly losing that battle.

    Laz: The elevator doors open and Laz pushed Raph down a small hallways and out into the garden. There were people out there, two other ninja out of uniform and three young woman reading under a tree. He was really hoping that there wouldn't be anyone out here. At their arrival the two men looked up and walked over to them. "Need any help?" they asked. Laz shook his head but the two were two eager to assist. Laz sighed and shot the two men down. Now for the girls who had watched everything. He aimed and one by one the women fell to the ground. Now with no one out there, Laz locked the door to the garden and took his mask off. "Hopefully they get here soon."

    Lexi: Lexi kept giving Raph gentle, reassuring squeezes. She knew how much he must be hurting, and wished that they could get him out of here soon. As they waited for the elevator to reach the top of the tower, she noticed the two pillows that were beneath the gurney. She grabbed them, placing one beneath Raph's head, and the other beneath his legs, trying to make him more comfortable. She managed another quick kiss before the doors opened, and she readjusted the sheet over his face. Unfortunately their arrival was not without incident. She could only watch on in horror as Laz was forced to shoot down the men.. and then the women.But deep down, she knew he didn't have a choice. If any of them had made it back into the tower, they would all be dead. "We should probably hide behind those bushes.." She suggested. Yeah, he had locked the doors, but she wanted to be double-safe.

    Gordon "Nope, your job is to look inconspicuous.. I might have to make up a few lies to get the copter." he got in the car after her making sure the radio is off-- again. Gordon turned on the car and headed towards the nearest station with a coptor.

    Donatello: Donatello's smile became more sincere at Mikey's gratitude. "You're welcome, Mikey." Now that Mike was settled again, Don could start looking around again. Surely there had to be SOME loophole they could bypass.

    Laz nodded to Lexi and hid behind some tall bushes with Lexi and Raph. Once they were in the clear, Laz pulled the sheet off of Raph's face. "Now we wait for rescue. Hopefully they get here fast."

    "Oooooooh good cop gonna lie. That's sexy." Angel teased with a grin on her face. "Incon...yeah what you said. I can do that no problem." She was so excited to be doing this, to steal a copter from the cops! HA! Beat that dragons!

    Raphael was thankful for the pillows being placed under his head and legs. It helped ease the pain in his neck due to his shell. Soon he felt himself moving again and heard voices but they seemed to go away quickly. With this sheet over his face it made it difficult to figure out what was going on.

    The winter air chilled him to the bone and the sheet did little to protect him against it. His teeth started chattering as he shivered which caused him to utter a deep painful groan. Laz removed the sheet over his face and for the first time in what felt like days he could see the sky and hear the traffic from down below.

    It was almost night time so it wasn't as late as he imagined. He loved this season for its short days and long nights. It was getting harder for him to stay awake as his eyes closed and opened a lot. He would fight it as long as possible and was to afraid of sleep, thinking that Lexi would be gone or that he was really still back down in that lab..

    Once behind the bushes, Lexi tried her best to make Raph as comfortable as possible. She adjusted the pillows and checked his injuries, feeling her stomach churn as she caught sight of the horrific wound once again. It was impossible to see just how deep it was, due to the blood that continued to pool in the wound, and spill down the crevasses of his shell. She applied pressure, desperately trying to get the bleeding to slow. At this rate, he was going to need a blood transfusion.


    "Stay awake, babe.." She urged, noticing as he began to nod off. She was afraid that if he went to sleep, he would never wake up. She caressed his face and kissed his cheek, before glancing over at Laz. "Can you.. hold this?" She asked, referring to the wadded up sheet that she was holding against his injury. "I need to find an extra blanket or something.. he's freezing..."

    Laz looked over at Lexi and frowned. "there are no blankets out here. And you can't go back inside. He's just going to have to hold on till help comes." He told her.

    Lexi frowned deeply at that. She knew that Raph couldn't regulate his body temperature like they could, and the last thing he needed was to get sick on top of anything else. There was only one thing she knew to do. Use her own body heat to try and warm him.


    Without saying a word, she removed her sword, and climbed onto the gurney with him, snuggling close. Her free hand rubbed and massaged his arms and legs, doing her best to keep him warm...

    Laz rolled his eyes and groaned. "Oh for crying out...I'll be over there." He said pointing to the other side of the garden, last thing he wanted was to watch Lexi try to 'warm up' raph. He walked away from the couple and moved to the other side of the roof and sat down. That copter better get here soon. He thought to himself.

    Raphael leaned closer to her as she climbed in with him and tried hard to focus on her in order to stay awake. He would be reveling in this if he wasn't in so much pain, especially when Laz left them alone. He didn't really know why Laz had left because everything was still a little fuzzy to him but he figured that they must be safe for the moment.

    Raphael started gasping for air but this cold only irritated his already dried out throat. He appreciated Lexi trying so hard to keep him warm but it was doing little good. His body still shivered which made him twitch, this was pure hell! He managed to rest a hand on Lexi's thigh and gave her a squeeze as if thanking her. He didn't feel he was worth this much trouble for her but was happy at the fact that she really loved him that much.

    His voice was strained but he tried to speak to her anyway. "Rough...day..huh." He said trying to joke with her, even though there wasn't anything funny about what was going on.

    Lexi: At first, Lexi was a bit confused by Laz' sudden departure, but then it all made sense. It was the same reason he wouldn't allow Raph in his home-- he hated seeing them together. Part of her felt bad 'exposing' him to this, and making him upset, but she had to keep Raph warm. But it was becoming clear that her efforts were doing little good, and she could feel the warm tears brimming at her eyes, knowing she had failed. It took everything she had not to completely break as he gasped for breath, then made a weak attempt at a joke. "Yeah.. but things will get better.." She promised, hoping she was right. She took his hands and slipped them beneath her uniform, hoping she could get that much of him warm, at least, and continued to rub him. "Tell them to hurry!" Lexi called out, hoping that Laz would be able to hear her, whenever he was. She had briefly thought about taking her clothes off in an attempt to warm him with her unencumbered body heat, but the bed sheet was just too thin to hold in the warmth.

    Michelangelo: As much as Mike hated--no-- despised this place, he had to admit. The bed was sooo comfortable. That, coupled with the fact that he was exhausted and injured, was making it nearly impossible to keep his eyes open. His lids flickered, but he fought to keep them open, watching as Don continued to look for a way out.

    Laz: "Yea yea," He said under his breath. He got on the com and pressed the button to talk to those in the lair. "Is someone coming? Raph's not gonna last too much longer." He told them. "You guys need to hurry. We still don't know where the other two are or ummm..." He didn't want to say 'the rat' but he could not remember Splinters name! "The fuzzy guy, we don't know where he is either."

    Gordon brings Angel to the roof after they finally arrive and deal with the security telling the security he'd deal with the paperwork afterwards. After ensuring Angel got her helmet on (and turning off the headset). Gordon started up the helicopter and made way for the Foot Tower.

    Gordon: Once they arrived, Gordon slowly set the helicopter down wherever there was a spot hoping they'd make it quick. copters certainly would draw unwanted attention to the roof. He nudged Angel gently to help them of they needed it.

    Donatello: Unfortunately, Don wasn't having much luck. Not that he really expected to find anything anyway. He knew the Shredder would have every little passage covered. But he refused to give up. His little brother was counting on him.

    Bishop: Bishop had finally found Shredder and stood in front of the man with his arms folded. "What is the meaning of you taking over my lab and moving my subject?" He asked. Shredder looked at the man as if he was crazy. "What are you babbling about? I gave no such order!" He told the scientist and started to head to the lab.

    Angel: Angel moved and hopped out the copter when they were close enough to the ground. She met up with Laz and he took her to Raph. " I don't think that bed's gonna fit in the helicopter." She informed. "Can he walk?"

    Raphael: Raphael could hardly keep his eyes open anymore but managed a small smile even if he couldn't turn his head to look at her. Her body inside her uniform felt so warm and his fingers rubbed against her soft skin. He felt her tears on his arm and though he was in complete agony he tried to comfort her. "Don't cry...babe..please..." But suddenly he heard a loud sound and with it came a cold breeze.

    Shredder: Once there Shredder looked around then spun on his heels and looked at Bishop. "Who took them!?" Bishop shrugged. "Some woman and some man. They said they needed to move him but didn't say where." Shredder pinched the bridge of his nose and closed his eyes tightly. "And you just...Let them waltz out of here?" He asked in a pissed off hushed tone. He stared daggers at Bishop, but the what ever damage has happen it's done. "Find them!" He yelled and stormed out the room.

    Gordon waited in the copter leaving it running. Soon as everyone that was coming was in, they were leaving.

    Lexi: Lexi breathed an inward sigh of relief when she heard the copter closing in. Still, her full focus remained on Raph, and her attempts to keep him warm, and awake. She briefly savored the feel of his fingers as they brushed her skin, hoping it wouldn't be the last intimate touch they would share. She wiped at her tears and pressed a kiss against his lips, barely registering Angel's question. She shook her head at the girl, keeping her focus on Raph. "No.. he's too weak. He's lost a lot of blood." She then looked up, wondering who was accompanying the girl, hoping it was Casey..

    Laz: Laz stopped himself from showing any sign of annoyance to this. Raph was proving to be difficult every step of the way. "The bed isn't going to fit, and the copter is close." He turned to see solders at the door, trying to get outside. "Sorry babe, Raph needs to move, now." He went to the other side of the bed and started to help Raph up. "Come on. You got to move."

    Angel: Angel also started to help Raph off the bed. "I'm sure you can make it to the helicopter." She told Raph.

    Raphael: As Raphael was forced upright he groaned in pain but he tried his best to walk and leaned heavily on Laz. Each step hurt worst then the one before it, his body shook and his breathing was labored but he was determined to make it. He didn't even think twice at the fact that Angel was there, pain muddled his thoughts and he staggered quite a bit. Freedom was so close... even with his blurred vision he could make out something in the distance. Though he seemed unaware that they have been discovered by the Foot ninjas.

    Donatello: Just when Donatello was beginning to lose hope, he happened to find something of use in the room's closet. He still had yet to check his own room for anything else, but he was reluctant to leave Mike's side -- even for a moment. Pulling a few things out of the way, his dull eyes began to shine with renewed hope. It might not be a direct way out of there, but maybe, with help from the outside, they could escape. It was an old phone. And surprisingly still in working order. He was about to shout out to Mike about his find but thought better of it when he saw his brother trying to sleep. He turned back to the old device and thought carefully about who he was going to call. It couldn't be his brothers or father because he was sure, if they were still in the tower, they were being watched carefully. Then his thoughts turned to his human firiends. However, he hated getting them involved in this. Deciding that they should know what's going on, he took a deep breath, let it out slowly, then dialed April's number.

    April: April was sitting at the kitchen counter, her mind drifting to the guys and what was going on with them. She was worried and maybe even a little scared to see how bad a shape Raph was actually in. When her phone range she jumped a little then reached in her pocket and answered it. "Hello?"

    Lexi: It seemed that Laz didn't understand just how bad Raph was hurt.. or just didn't care. She shot him a look, but bit her tongue.. for now. She knew they had to get moving, but it was hurting her, knowing how much pain he was in. "His chest was sawed open.." She told Angel, but also as a reminder to Laz, who just didn't seem to understand. She helped support him as best she could, still holding the makeshift bandage against his mutilated plastron. She helped load him into the copter, trying to make him as comfortable as possible. But the fact that Casey was nowhere in sight deeply upset her. "Where's.. Casey?" She asked. Out of all of the people that was down at the Lair, besides Laz, she trusted Casey the most, and knew Raph would be more at ease with him. She did NOT want to leave Raph with these two, and she wanted nothing more than to stay with him. But Laz was doing this for her, she needed to help him.

    Gordon "We don't have time for this! Helicopters don't come with a stealth setting!" yelling to speak above the copter. He took a deep breath keeping an eye on the door to the roof, he was getting a little wary.

    Donatello: To hear April's voice again felt really good. It took him a few tries to get his voice to work, being over come with emotion again. "It's..." he cleared his thoat, "it's me, Don." He kept his voice low for obvious reasons.

    April: "Don! Oh my god! Are you ok? Is everyone ok? Where are you?" April asked almost frantically. "Don't worry, we're coming to get you all out of there."

    Laz: Laz got Raph in the copter with the help of the girls. Angel jumped back in the machine, then Laz started to help Lexi in. "You go too." He told her. "I'll find the others."

    Donatello: Don still kept his voice hushed as he answered her. "I-I don't even know, exactly. We're in one of the fancy bedrooms in the tower. Mikey's with me but he's severely injured. A-and no clue where the others are." It was hard to keep his voice calm after compiling all that information and several other details he hadn't mentioned yet.

    April: "Don't worry Don, we already have people in there looking for you guys and we got Raph out." She told him. Then the phone was suddenly taken from her hand and Rini spoke. "Donnie?"

    Leatherhead watched the girls quietly as they spoke to Donatello, it sounded like he was alright, so he was grateful for that. Bu what about Michelangelo?

    Lexi: ..and it seemed she wouldn't be getting an answer. As much as she wanted to shrug Gordon's comment off, she knew he was right. Still, she was reluctant to leave Raph, fearful that she would never see him again. Then, hearing Laz' comment, she briefly considered staying with Raph.. but that wouldn't be right. "No.. I'm going to help you, Laz. I know you're doing this for me." She said, and returned her attention to Raph, giving his hand a gentle squeeze, and hugging him as best she could. "I love you, Raph." She told him, and pressed a kiss against his lips.

    Donatello: Don thanked April then nearly dropped the phone in shock when he heard Rini's voice on the other end. "Rini...?" his voice broke as he tried to pull himself together. "You're alive?"

    Laz: But Laz wasn't taking no for an answer. "I'll see you all at the lair." He told her and shut the door on her then backed away. It was then that the men finally made it to the roof. He motioned to Gordon to get the hell out of there then turned his attention on the horde and started to fight them off.

    Rini: "Yes, so is Fraya. She saved us." Rini informed. "Are you ok...Where are you?" She hoped that maybe she could talk him out of there, but first she needed to know where he was.

    Gordon didn't wait for Lexi to react, he put the helicopter into gear and they were in the air half a second later. "Where are we going?"

    Raphael: Raphael made it into the copter but not much relief was to be had by sitting down, he gasped for air again as he felt another sharp pain. It seemed that Lexi was trying to stay and though Raphael wanted to argue with her about it, he just couldn't find his voice. But when she held his hand he griped it hard trying to pull her back with him. He knew she couldn't survive in the Tower... he attempted to kiss her back before she tried to pull away but suddenly the door closed and she was still inside. It's about the only decent thing Laz has ever done for Lexi in his eyes.

    Donatello: Don sighed deeply. "We're in a bedroom, but I have no idea where. Mikey and I have adjoining rooms. And no idea where Leo and Raph are."

    Rini: That was a good clue, adjoining rooms there was only one floor that had those rooms. "Ok..So you're on the eighth floor. It would be easer to get out through the basement on Kitchen from there." Rini said and started to think of ways to get them out. "I'm guessing the doors are lock...Can you pick the lock?"

    Lexi: Suddenly, the choice was made for her. She tried to open the door, but the copter was soon air bound. Her eyes grew wide in horror as she witnessed the hordes of ninja pour through the garden's door. She screamed out to Laz, hitting the copter window with her palm.. but it was no use.. he wouldn't hear her. It was taking everything she had not to completely break. Raph did not need to see her like that. She finally settled on the floor of the copter, resting Raph's head in her lap, and caressing his cheek. "How are you feeling, babe?" She asked. "Is there anything I can do?" Hearing Gordon's question, she was thoughtful for a moment. It would probably be difficult to get him into the lair in this condition. Besides, it wasn't the healthiest place to be with injuries as severe as his. "My place." She finally said, though, she was reluctant to have complete strangers there. Especially this Angel girl. She didn't seem trustworthy. But they would have to worry about that later. Raph needed to get settled somewhere. She gave Gordon the directions to her secluded beach house.

    Laz: Laz was fighting with everything he had, but he was out numbered and out of ammo. Finally had was taken down and restrained. Well this sucked. He didn't struggle with the men as he was lead back inside. "So. Nice weather we're having uh?" He said with a light tone. No one replied. They brought him to the cells and tossed him in one of them. What they failed to notice, was he still had his com. Once the men left him he got on the com. "Uh....there's been a little problem. Raph and Lexi got out safely but uh...I'm locked up. So yeah. It was nice working with you guys."

    Donatello: Don carefully listened to her instructions then shook his head at her question. "I haven't found anything to use. But I have yet to check my room," he told her, glancing at the door from the closet.

    Casey Jones: He heard as April answered her phone and couldn't believe Donatello was able to call her, especially since Leonardo was in the dungeon while Raph was found in the lab.. If he was able to get a phone it must be in a different place all together. He watched as April talked to him but then Rini suddenly snatched it away which cause him to hover over her, trying to get as many details as he could. He knew that he would most likely be going in to get the rest out if Laz and Lexi couldn't manage it..

    Rini: "Then go do that....wait...The sheets on the bed, are they red or black?" If Rini remembered correctly, the there was one room that had a little passage way in the closet, though it didn't lead to freedom, it lead out the rooms. But that room had red sheets. Now that didn't mean that even if the sheets were red that little hiding spot was there, but there was a chance.

    Angel: Angel looked over at Raph then grabbed the copters first aid kit. "Um we got some Band-Aids and gauze and meds...And some other stuff. I'm not good at this doctor stuff."

    Donatello: Don recalled that the sheets were indeed red. However, he didn't realize that until he was fiddling with the bedding to help Mike get more comfortable. But he wasn't sure what the difference made, really. "They're red. But why would that make a difference?"

    Gordon nodded to Lexi listening to what she said and he turns the helicopter around going in the direction of her beach house. Once in a direct route, he leaned over turning the heat on and up. He really didn't know how the turtles physiology worked, but he knew reptiles were cold-blooded. "Heat's on, tell me if it should be higher." he looked to Angel briefly "And my knowledge is limited to humans, so I'm not help either there, sorry." that and he was driving, so it's not like eh could help anyway.

    Rini: "There's a room up there that has red sheets and a small passage way in one of the closets. So go check the closets." Rini told him.

    Raphael: Raphael watched as Lexi banged on the door for a moment before slumping over.. there was nothing he could do or possibly say to make her feel better about the situation. He happily placed his head on her lap and was thankful for the support, shell's just weren't meant to lay on straight surfaces and laying on his plastron was out of the question. He looked up at her face, he knew she was upset and it killed him to not be able to do a damn thing about it. His limbs shook again but the bleeding at least seemed to be slowing down. He tried to answer her question but he barely even had the strength to talk anymore as his eyes kept fluttering. He did though try to make a drinking motion with his hand, despite how much it shaked. His throat was so dry that talking really wasn't an option at the moment..

    Fraya: Fraya had heard Laz on her com and frowned. "Laz was caught." She told the others. "But Raph got out alright."

    Donatello: Donatello nodded then told her to hang on while he checked his room. Because he clearly didn't see anything in Mike's room. And sure enough, she was right. He smiled in relief then quickly returned to the phone, telling her the good news. "You were right. But I'm not exactly certain how I could get Mike out of bed. He's been really injured and it's best if we don't move him." He sighed in defeat. "But I really appreciate your help in this." Yet, he wasn't completely giving up on that idea either. There had to be something that could aid them. "So where does this lead?"

    Rini: Rini smiled at that. There was some hope after all. "It leads to a storage room two floors down. Can you lay Mike on a sheet and pull him? The sheets are pretty soft it should slide easily." But she wasn't sure if that would work, she didn't know how bad a shape Mike was in.

    Lexi: Lexi took the medical kit from Angel, giving her an appreciative look. They might have gotten off to a rocky start, but she was thankful for what help the girl was giving her. She tried to clean away as much of the blood as possible, and began sterilizing and medicating the injury. It was still hard to tell just how deep the saw had gone,and it would take an expert with the right equipment to assess its severity. Her main concern at the moment was getting him stable. As she began placing a thick layer pf gauze over the wound, she saw Raph gesture for some water. She couldn't move, due to her supporting him. Her gaze shifted to Angel. "Do we have water?"

    Angel: "Ummmm." Angel moved to the front with Gordon. "Do we have water?"

    Gordon gave Angel a brief glance when she popped back up front before turning his head back towards the window. "Yea, there should be some bottled water back there."

    Angel: Angel went back to Raph and Lexi and started to look for the water. When she found it she opened the top and handed it to Lexi. She then started to inspect Raph's wound. She was never the one to take care of the guys back at HQ that was always Mikko or Lydia or someone. "Do you know a vet?" She asked Lexi.

    Leatherhead he shifted his glance from the conversation Rini was having with Donatello and was relieved to hear Michelangelo was alive as well. Hearing the news from Fraya he frowned and stood back up. "Does he know his location and Leonardo's?"
    Leatherhead "Would he be able to guide us there to find them?"

    Donatello: Don also wasn't so sure that would work. Mike was in horrible shape and shouldn't be moved. Not to mention, if he did move him, Mike's cries might give away the whole escape. No, it was better to find another way around it. He just had to think and look around for resources. "I really don't think that's a good idea, Rini." He glanced at Mike sadly. Some way, some how...they'd find a way. But whatever they did, they'd have to be discreet about it.

    Fraya: Fraya asked Laz where he was and he told her that he was in the basement across from a now sleeping Leo. She told Leatherhead what Laz had said. But she knew that Laz wouldn't last long, he was a traitor. He would be tortured to death before anyone got there.

    Rini: Rini frowned at that. "Is he awake? Does he want to talk to Fraya?"

    Lexi: Lexi brushed at her tears before taking the water, giving the girl a quiet thanks. As carefully as she could, she lifted Raph's head just enough to offer him the liquid, and held the bottle to his lips. "Take it slow, babe.." She coaxed, and turned her attention to Angel, shaking her head in response. "Just the one I take Jigs to.. but..I don't know if we can trust him.." And she wasn't even sure if the man specialized in 'exotics'. Normally, her first thought would be to find a doctor, since Raph had always been 'human' to her. But they were dealing with shell damage, that was well out of the league of human medicine...

    Leatherhead "I need directions." he glances to Casey suspecting he might be interested in going. "If anyone plans on going with me, they better hope Donatello has a breathing apparatus in the lab."

    Donatello: Don glanced over at Mike on the bed. He knew he should let him sleep, but maybe Mikey hearing Fraya's voice might bring him some peace of mind. Just like how Rini did for him. "I'm sure he'd appreciate it. I really missed you, Rini."

    Angel: Angel thought for a moment. "Well...I know someone, she's pretty good with patching people up. I can call her." Mikko was the only person Angel knew. She wouldn't dare call Lydia. She was Hun's cousin and would surly just get the gang involved

    Rini: "I miss you too. But I'll see you soon." She tried to assure him. "Ok I'm putting Fraya on now." She then went over and handed the phone to Fraya.

    Casey Jones: Casey stood straight up as he heard the news from Fraya, Raphael was safe but Laz had been captured. A very small part of him felt bad for the guy, he did just give his life to save the turtles or mainly Raph. But if Laz was still around he figured he'd have to move in to get both him and Leonardo as long as they were both in the dungeon. He looked over at Leatherhead. But it seemed he was once again beaten to the punch by Fraya, which worked out better cause he only knew where Leonardo was being kept. This was turning out to be a big mess. As Leatherhead spoke Casey stepped forward with his golfbag over his shoulder, he had been waiting a long time for this. "Let's get goin' then." He said after he glanced breifly at April, he wondered if he'd ever see her again and thought he might be in the same place as Laz pretty soon.

    Leatherhead offered his hand out for the communicator so Fraya could speak with Michelangelo in peace.

    April: April looked at Casey with worry in her eyes. "You be careful. Both of you. I don't want to have to go in there and drag you both out."

    Fraya: Fraya took the phone and handed Leatherhead the communicator. "Hello?" She said into the phone. "Mike?"

    Casey Jones: He grinned over at her, same old April acting tough. He liked that about her and nodded. "Don' worry Ape, wit' this big guy 'ere I doubt they'll lay a' hand on us." He sadi motioning to Leatherhead though he was joking and knew the ninjas would attack even with the gator around.

    Lexi: "I can patch people up, too." Lexi told Angel. "I was a medical student for two years before my life did a 360." Obviously, Lexi was not too trusting of 'outsiders', and for good reason. "But.. we need someone that has the equipment to assess the internal damage.. and.. someone who can repair a mutilated shell."

    Donatello: Don hoped she caught his 'I love you' before she turned it over to Fraya. Hearing Fraya's voice on the other line, he hurried as fast as his injuries would allow then tried gently waking Mikey up. "Mikey? There's someone who wants to talk to you." He already heard Fraya talking on the other line, then he brought the receiver up to his own ear again. "Keep talking to him. Let him hear your voice, okay, Fraya?" And without waiting for an answer, he held the phone up to Mike's ear.

    Leatherhead: "Mr. Jones and I are coming to get you and Leonardo. I need directions." he wandered to the lab to find a breathing apparatus for Casey. On the off chance they were swimming, Casey may need it.

    Angel: "Mmmm...Don't think Mikko knows about that. we need a vet. A vet that isn't going to freak out at the sight of this ugly guy." She joked. "Or we can super glue him back together!"

    Fraya: "Mike can you hear me? I totally got you that new game console you wanted, the one with the drums and stuff. So you have to come home and get better so we can play." Fraya said.

    Michelangelo: At first, Mike thought he was dreaming. He could hear Fraya's voice, and could even see her in his dreams. That sweet smile that he loved so much. It took a moment, but her chatter slowly began pulling him back to the surface. His eyes slowly fluttered open, and he was confused to see Don standing there instead of her. But then, he realized her voice was coming through the phone. His shaky hand took it from his brother, and he answered almost hoarsely. "Fraya?"

    Raphael: Raphael was eager when the bottle of water was placed against his lips and he couldn't help but gulp it, it tasted so good and soothed the back of his throat. He soon started coughing due to drinking it so quickly which spattered some water. The bottle of water was quickly drained and thats when Raphael laid his head back down on Lexi's lap. He watched as she tried to patch him up and hissed as she sterilized the wound. God it hurt like nothing he's ever felt before! He wasn't really paying attention to Angel and Lexi's bantering and zoned in and out. He was so tired.

    Fraya: "Mikey! are you alright, babe?: Fraya asked. "what did they do to you?" She was almost scared to get the answer of that question.

    Laz: Laz gave the gator directions to the to the basement from the sewer. "Right now there isn't anyone in here. But I don't know how long that will last."

    Donatello: Don allowed Mike to take the phone and just sat on the bed next to him, staying as close as possible if his brother needed something. It was so heartwrenching, though. He was more than relieved to have confirmation that both of the girls were alive, but he still missed Rini so much. He had never been this far apart for this long since they had been together.

    Michelangelo: "Yeah.. I'm okay." Mike tried to assure her. "Heh.. just feel like I got ran over by a Megatron ,who then transformed and stomped me!" He tried to joke. He wasn't about to tell her how badly he'd been injured. No need to make her worry. "Don't worry about me, babe... we're gonna be outta here soon."

    Leatherhead offered Casey an apparatus he found, he was not sure how well it would work for Casey, but it would have to do. "You will not be able to take that entire bag with you if we end up swimming, it will slow us down." Pressing the button to reply to Laz he gave a subconscious nod speaking again. "We will be there as quickly as possible."

    Fraya: "Stupid Megatron. I'mma call optimums prime on his butt." She teased back. "Don found a way out, there's a passage in his closet that will get you two out of the room."

    Laz: "No hurry guys." Laz said and leaned back on the wall. "Never thought I would find myself on this side of the bars."

    Michelangelo: Mike managed a weak chuckle at that, but her last comment sobered him up a bit. He looked at Don, and then at the phone.. "Ooooh.." He tried pushing himself up, yelping as he did so. "What are we waiting for.. let's get the shell out of here.." Obviously, he was in no condition to move at the moment, but try telling him that! He just wanted out.. wanted to be reunited with his family..

    Fraya: Fraya cringed when she heard Mike yelp. "Take it easy, babe. Don't need you getting more hurt." Maybe telling him that was a bad idea. "it's not going to get you out the tower, but it'll get you out the room. Just take it slow ok."

    Donatello: Don was quick to put a stop to that plan, lightly pressing Mike's shoulder to force him into a lying-down position again. "No, you need to rest first." He wasn't about to let Mike get up from that bed again. Not until he received some honest-to-goodness rest. "I'll keep working on it, and you just relax and talk to Fraya, alright?"

    Lexi: At the mention of Mikko, Lexi looked over at Angel. It kind of made sense that the two would know each other. They certainly looked a lot alike. She felt it would be useless info to tell the girl that Raph and Mikko hated each other, so having them within the same place would be a bad idea. At her mentioning of a vet, she frowned deeply, giving a sad look. "I.. don't know who to trust." She admitted, caressing Raph's cheeks. She knew the girl was joking about the glue.. or at least hoped she was.. but couldn't manage a smile under these circumstances. Then, Raph downed the water a little too quickly, causing her to panic. Luckily his coughing soon eased, and she placed the empty bottle on the floor, and continued patching him up. It brought more tears to her eyes to hear his pained hisses, but she was being as gentle as she could. "I'm.. sorry, babe.. almost done.." She finished as quickly as she could, and placed a kiss against his snout. "There.. all finished." ..for now. But she knew, the more painful part of his treatment was yet to come.

    Michelangelo: Mike gave a cute pout at his brother as he settled back into the bed, defeated. Normally he would've protested the orders, but his body was siding with his brother. He was just too weak and exhausted. He sighed deeply. "..okay." Then, returned his attention to Fraya. "So, what's up?"

    Angel: Angel thought some more, but she couldn't come up with anything else. "Maybe it'll heal on it's own?" She figured in the wild a turtle would have to just suffer till he healed up, or die. But Raph was pretty tough, she didn't think that he would die.

    Fraya: "Us trying to save you guys is what's up. We found Leo and got Raph out. Now we just need to get you two." Fraya informed. Leatherhead and Casey just left to get Leo and Laz."

    Donatello: With a small smile of satisfaction, Don got up from the bed and headed back to his room, checking out the passageway. There was a way to pull it off, but he wouldn't run the plan by Mike until he felt slightly better. The most important thing was keeping the impatient turtle from rushing into anything his body wasn't ready for.

    Post by Leatherhead on Sat Jan 08, 2011 2:55 pm


    Michelangelo: "Raph's.. out?" Mike asked, relieved that at least one of his brothers were out of this hell hole. Of course, he had no way of knowing just how badly injured Raph was.. "Is he okay?"

    Fraya: Fraya wasn't sure how to answer that. She didn't want to lie to Mike though. "Well...They said that...He was injured. But, we don't really know what happen." She finally said. Well it wasn't a lie, she didn't know what had happen.

    Raphael: Raphael laid as still as he could as she finished patching him up and with what little he could see he felt it was good enough. Now if only they could do something about the pain... Raphael was very close to unconsciousness now and closed his eyes, it wasn't his choice. His body was forcing him to, it was just to much to take at once..

    Casey Jones: Casey gave Leatherhead a bewildered look. "A breathin' wha'?" He asked but soon figure out what it was he was talking about.. Though going underwater wasn't something he was expecting and hated that he had to limit his choice to a single weapon. He placed the golf bag down on the floor and knelt down while trying to decide on either his bat or hockey stick. He soon chose the hockey stick due to its longer reach and stood up. He then took the breathing apparatus and looked over it carefully. it didn't seem to bad and would ask more questions on to how to actually use the thing later. He was now ready to go and gave Leatherhead a nod.

    Lexi: "It would take too long to heal on its own." She answered Angel. Not to mention, the pain itself could put him into shock, and she wasn't sure how much internal damage had been done. Still, she didn't want to say too much in front of Rap. She looked down at him, witnessing his struggle to stay conscious. "Stay awake, babe.." She coaxed, but knew how difficult it must be for him. But she was afraid that if he fell asleep, he would slip past the point of no return. As long as she kept him talking and awake.. she knew he was still here. She continued to caress his cheek and nuzzled his snout, planting a few light kisses there. "We're almost home.." She told him. She had wanted the beach house to be a surprise, but it seemed like he would be finding out about it sooner than expected. She just wished the circumstances were better.

    Angel: Angel sighed. "Then...I guess we just make his last moments comfortable." She told Lexi. She then got back in the front with Gordon and looked over at him. "I don't think he's gonna make it." She told him quietly.

    Raphael: Raphael felt the affection Lexi was lavishing him with and definatly couldn't complain about that. He was aware of how afraid she was and didn't like the fact that he was the cause of most of it. When she mentioned home his eyes fluttered open a bit. "Home..?" He wondered out loud and really wasn't sure what place she meant. He knew she moved out of her appartmant and he had never called the Lair home. "Gah!...damn!" He thrashed around a bit as he was hit by another sharp pain in his chest. Where ever they were going he hoped they'd get there soon.

    Michelangelo: Injured.. well, that didn't seem like anything to be concerned about. Heck, they were all injured. It concerned him, but he thought it was just battle wounds. It would've devastated him to know that he had been Bishop's little guinea pig, and had suffered more severe injures than him. "Where is he now? Is he.. home?" He asked, hopeful. "Can I talk to him?"

    Laz was sitting quietly in his cell, wishing that Leo was awake so that he would have someone to talk to at lest. But then solders came in and opened his cell door up. Wordlessly they took Laz out of his cell and walked him upstairs. As they passed Leo's cell, Laz tossed the com through his bars. Hopefully Leo would wake up and see it before the ninja did. Laz walked with the men upstairs, to his surprise they brought him back to the roof. He didn't see shredder anywhere, he must have been to busy doing damage control. The group of ninjas started to bring him to the edge of the building. They then turned him around to face them. Laz glanced over his shoulder. He looked down at the pavement, if he fell, he would fall behind the tower not on the street. He looked back at the others as they gave him the order to jump.

    Fraya: "No, Lexi is going to take him somewhere to heal up. They had to get him with a copter." Fraya told him, still trying to avoid telling him that Raph was practically dying.

    Leatherhead: He nodded to Casey and started out of the lair taking the directions given to him by Laz. "Laz mentioned Splinter is still inside there." Leatherhead really hadn't planned for Splinter, he hadn't even known Splinter was involved at all. But he knew Splinter could be in serious trouble when Shredder realizes all of the turtles were rescued. And he wouldn't stand for that if he could help it.

    Donatello: Seeing he couldn't do anything but wait for a while, Don decided to take his own advice and lay down for a little bit. He left the door between his and Mike's room open just in case his brother called for him. Careful of his own injuries, he laid down in his own bed and closed his eyes. Hopefully not falling completely asleep since he didn't want to lose track of time.

    Casey Jones: Casey followed the big gator through the sewer tunnels, the low water splashed benneth his feet as rats would every so often scury away when they got to close. Casey wasn't to surprised that Splinter was there also since he hadn't seen him at the Lair. "The poor guy musta' gone after his son's.." Casey said but he really admired Splinter for it, if it was him in his shoes he would have done the same. "Is eh' beenin' kept in a' cell er' wha'?" he asked trying to better understand the situation especially since he heard Mikey and Donnie were kept in a nice bedroom.. It made no sense to him at all.

    Gordon: Although he kept his eyes in front of him, he frowns at Angel's comment. "How bad are his injuries?" he really didn't think it appropriate to already write Raph off as done for, but it seemed to look pretty bad. a Regular doctor probably couldn't do anything... and he didn't know any herpetologists he could suggest.

    Laz: Laz looked back down at the pavement. "This has not been a good day..." He mumbled to himself. The others closed in on him. It looked like his choice was to jump or be pushed. He would have fought back, but his hands were tied behind his back. He took a step away from the ledge but was pushed back. He was given the jump order once more. Then one guy, tired of waiting for Laz, pushed Laz forcefully off the building. Laz made a loud gasping sound as he fell over the ledge...Then it the ground.

    Leatherhead. "No, his location hasn't been discovered." he frowns. "I admit I do not have a plan for him. I had not known until before we just left." he glances to Casey "If you have any suggestions, I am welcome to hearing them."

    Angel: Angel glanced back then looked forward again. "He's been cut in half." She told him. "I mean...maybe if we find a doctor, but...It doesn't look good."

    Lexi: Hearing Angel's comment, it seriously took everything Lexi had to not completely break down. She bit her bottom lip,trying to choke back the sobs that couldn't be contained. She had already lost so much. She was NOT going to lose him too! Then, Raph cried out in pain, causing her heart to break all over again. She tried to brace him, giving his hand a firm squeeze as she pressed her tear-soaked cheek against his. "I know it hurts, babe.. but you're going to be okay. I'll get you something for pain, as soon as I can.." She promised him. "Just hang in there, okay?" She sniffled, and wiped at her tears, but they continued to fall. "We have.. our whole lives.. to look forward to.." She whispered to him, and gave a weak nod, in reply to his earlier question. "Home...you're gonna love it, babe.. it's big and secluded.."

    Casey Jones: Casey tried to think but it was difficult seeing as he knew nothing about the inside of the Tower or how the hell the situation got this bad. "Maybe when we find the guy's we could ask.. I mean one of 'em had ta have seen him by now.." It was mostly wishful thinking though as he glared down at the murky water.. If any of them died from this he would be sure to make the Shredder pay! Even if he dosen't exactly know how to yet. "Where are we headed?" He asked he knew they were going to the Tower but this whole breathing thing he was carrying was starting to worry him.. he wasn't to found of being stuck underwater if he could aviod it.

    Leonardo: But Leo had woke up when the men came in for Laz. He stood laying down, not wanting to bring attention to himself. When everyone was out of sight, Leo sat up and took the communicator from the ground. He pressed the button and spoke quietly into the speaker. "Hello? Anyone hear me?"

    Michelangelo: Distracted by Fraya on the phone, Mike had yet to notice that Don had disappeared back into his room. "Where did Lexi take him?" He asked, slightly confused. Last he heard, Lexi was staying with that guy.. what was his name? That former Foot dude that didn't like Raph all that much.. or wait.. not at all!

    Gordon: "It's not over until it's over, Angel." he sat up looking down through the drives window "Is this the place, Lexi?" he made a brief glance back tot he girl and Raph.

    Fraya: "I don't know actually." Fraya admitted. "But I know that Gordon and Angel got him and Lexi out. That's all I know though. And that Casey and Leatherhead or coming for you guys."

    Leatherhead: "Perhaps..." he frowns and picks up the comm from his belt and blinks hearing Leo's voice. "Leonardo? Is that you?" He was perplexed by this, where was Laz... "Is Laz there with you?"

    Leonardo: Leo was relieved to hear Leatherhead's voice, though it confused him as to why he was hearing his voice. "No...They took him away, they mentioned something about roof and payback. Where are you?"

    Raphael: Raphael felt her tears on his face and heard her sobs... he hated it when she cried and knew that it was his fault. He tried his best not to yell out in pain but it was just so hard. He squeezed her hand tightly as another wave rushed over him and he wondered if it would ever end. He was exhausted from all this but was aware that Lexi wanted him to stay awake despite how imposable it was becoming for him. He weakly nodded up at her as she went on about how they had there whole lives ahead of them.. and he forced a brief smile at that. He wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, no matter how brief it was. He would hold on as long as he could for her. This home she talked about sounded great to him as soon as she said secluded. "Sounds....nice.." He said while trying to look up at her.

    Lexi: Lexi looked up long enough to look out the coper window, giving an unseen nod to Gordon. "Yeah, that's it." The area was secluded, with nothing but open beach for miles on either side. Landing shouldn't be too difficult, she hoped.

    Angel: Angel looked down at the area and smiled a little. "Ooooh pretty. You could have some awesome parties here!"

    Michelangelo: "Well.. give him a big hug for me if you see him." Mike requested, momentarily forgetting how intimidated Fraya was of Raph. He just wished he was out to do it himself. Despite his best attempts to stay awake, he was once again nodding off. "I think.. the sandman's callin'.." He yawned, and made smooching sounds into the receiver. "I'll see you soon, okay?"

    Casey Jones: He also heard Leonardo's voice out of the blue and wondered when it was that he got the walkie talkie, but it really didn't matter he thought. But when he over heard what happened to Laz he was a bit surprised. "Damn, that was fast." He muttered out loud, and felt bad for the poor guy. He didn't turn out being such a bad guy after all.. Casey would have answered Leo's question but wasn't so sure himself and left it open for Leatherhead to explain.

    Fraya: Fraya smiled and giggled at his kissing noises. "I will, you go get some rest, babe." She made smoochy noises back at him before hanging up the phone. She handed the phone back to April and sat on the counter. "Maybe we should go to the tower and go get them." Rini didn't like the sound of that. "That didn't work to good last time you did that, remember?" Fraya nodded thoughtfully. "But we know where they are, we can get in and out, it'll be easy."

    Lexi: Lexi continued to do everything within her power to comfort Raph, but she knew it was out of her hands.. and that was killing her. She continued to rub and caress him, planting light kisses against his skin. Hearing Angel's comment, she managed a weak smile. Though, parties were the last thing on her mind.

    Leatherhead: He growled a bit hearing Laz had already been taken. "Mr. Jones and I are almost there, we may have to swim to your location." He glanced ahead of them finding the spot he'd be instructed. "Leonardo, is there anyone else there? And would you happen to know where your father was taken?"

    Leonardo: "No, no one is here. and I don't know where Master Splinter is, I don't know where anyone is." Leo answered sadly.

    Michelangelo: Mike closed the phone, and laid it beside him on the bed. He tried to get himself comfortable once again, but just as his head made contact with the plush pillow, he noticed that his brother was no longer in the room. Panicked, he painfully pushed himself up, eyes darting around the room. "Donnie?"

    Gordon: He nodded and started lowering the copter a safe distance from the beach house. He quickly turns the engine off once they were landed and pulled the helmet off. "We'll need something to bring him inside. I don't think making him walk again is a good idea." Now that Gordon had gotten a look (albeit brief), he had an idea how bad the injuries were.

    Donatello: Don was fighting a losing battle with staying conscious. Maybe closing his eyes was a bad idea, after all. He was vaguely aware that Mike was off the phone and his eyes snapped open when Mike called for him. He didn't bother getting up just yet because his body was very tired and heavy from his earlier explorations. He might have been in better shape than Mike, but he was still in a lot of pain. He just didn't show it much. He just had to be extremely cautious in every move he made. "I'm here, Mikey," he answered back, loud enough that Mike could hear him.

    "Raphael is injured, but alive and out." he would not go on to explain how bad the injuries were, he did not want to scare Leonardo. "Rini and Fraya are helping Donatello and Michelangelo. I had not known Splinter was there until later, I am sorry." Leatherhead hoped April would keep him updated on that situation with the comm he gave her. Pausing a moment, he turns looking to Casey. "How fast can you swim?"


    At lest one of them were out. And they were all injured so Leo didn't think to much of that. He set the com down and leaned against the cool bars, hopefully they got there soon.


    Casey looked down at the pool of murky water and tensed. He then looked up at Leatherhead. "I..ya probably could sink faster then I can swim.." He reluctantly admitted, frozen water was more his thing but he knew he didn't have a choice.. Just why did it have to be sewer diving?! He held up the breath aperatus and fiddled with it a minute. "Uh, how do ya use this thin'?"


    Lexi was in complete agreement with Gordon. Having Raph walk again was not a good idea. She had been against him walking in the first place, but under the earlier circumstances, the decisions had been out of her hands. She nodded to the man before carefully shifting Raph's head to free her lap, replacing it with a pillow. "I'll be right back, babe.. promise." She told him, hoping he would stay awake without her there to keep him from drifting off. She hopped from the copter, and rushed inside to find something suitable for transporting Raph into the house.


    Angel looked down at Raph then she too, hopped out of the copter. Angel walked around in the sand and towards the house. The place was very nice and her mind was racing with ideas of how it could be used. Of course beach parties, but that would be in the summer. The house it self looked big enough for the whole gang!


    Mike could hear his brother's voice coming from the other room, but despite knowing he was close.. he did not want to be alone! He'd always craved the attention of his brothers, and more so when he was sick or injured. And after everything that had happened.. the loneliness was suffocating. Without saying another word, he painfully forced himself up, once again using the wall to brace himself as he moved slowly towards his brother's adjoining room. Every step, every breath was pure torment, but he was determined to make it. It took him a while, but he finally made it into Don's room, and as quietly as he could, slipped into the bed with him, snuggling close.


    Raphael winced as Lexi moved her lap and replaced it with the soft pillow. He didn't want her to leave and weakly reached out towards her but it was no use. It seemed like she needed something. It was then that his body decided he couldn't take it any longer as his eyes fadded to black just as they did back at the lab and he was left unconsious..


    "We're going to go in there and get them." April finally said. "We can't just sit here and wait for them. You girls know how to get in. So lets go." Of course Fraya was all for that, she had been wanting to get her man all along! Rini was a little nervous about the whole thing, but finally she agreed. The three woman grabbed some weapons and headed out. April got on the com to let the boys know she was going in. "Me and the girls are heading to the tower." She said and tucked the communicator in her pocket.


    Don wasn't sure which emotion he should feel. Shock, worry, anger...the list went on. He didn't have time to react before Mike started making his way to Don's room. As soon as he laid down, Don fussed at him for getting up and moving...especially without help. "Mikey, what...what do you think you're doing? You need to be resting. Not moving around." Of course, Don didn't mind the company either. With a careful hand, he gently caressed his brother's arm, allowing Mike to cuddle up with him. "Next time, let me come and get you, alright?"


    Oblivious to Angel's train of thoughts, or the fact that she had actually followed her inside, Lexi searched frantically for something that would be of use. Unfortunately most of her boxes were still packed, but she did manage to find a thick quilt that could hopefully be used as a makeshift gurney. She nearly collided with Angel as she turned to sprint back outside. "I'm going to need your help." She told the girl, hoping she would be willing.


    Angel nodded to Lexi as she looked around the place. She headed out, but not before pocketing some cash that was laying on the counter. She would have to see what else the woman had later. "So you want us to pick him up?" She asked, not sure if she had that kind of strength.


    ...but Lexi had seen Angel snatch the funds, and while it infuriated her, she couldn't call it out... not now. She needed the help. But it was difficult to keep the anger from her features. "Wee're going to get him in on this." She told her. "You and I can get one end, Gordon the other." She informed her, and watched her closely as they headed out. But the more she thought about it, the more it seriously upset her. "I'm used to people taking advantage of me. But it's kind of sad that someone that should be on the same team would do so.. now, of all times." She huffed. "If you needed money bad enough, you could've asked."


    "We'll be there in a few." he stuck the comm in his belt and turned to help Casey put the apparatus on, he didn't want to waste anymore time if he could help it. "We'll get there faster if I just carry you."


    Mike curled up closer to Don, nuzzling his snout against his neck. He was so exhausted that he barely acknowledged his brother's scolding, but managed a tired smile. "Heh.. okay. But I saved time by not waiting." He lightly teased.


    That plan seemed solid enough, still she wasn't sure if she could hold up her end of the blanket. Raph was fat! To much beer she figured. When Lexi called her out about the money she rolled her eyes and put it back, obviously she needed more practice. It was ok. She knew where the woman lived. "We're not on the same team, I'm only here because Gordon wanted me to stay. And I don't ask for shit." She added pushing past Lexi and walking outside.


    Is seemed no one noticed or cared that they were leaving. That both bothered and pleased April all at the same time. But they wouldn't be going under the tower like the others. Fraya and Rini were leading April to the streets. There they started to make their way to the tower, they would be going through the back door, heading straight to the elevator then to the storage room. From there they could crawl to Don and Mike's room.


    Lexi was so frustrated that it was all she could do to keep from crying! Normally people like Angel wouldn't get to her, but right now.. it only made her feel more alone in this. Completely alone. Here she was, with a girl that was completely heartless, and a man she didn't know. And she had no choice but to depend on them. She headed back out to the copter, fighting back the tears and the anger, wishing Laz was here. Fuck it. As she reached the copter, she decided she would just do this by herself. She was finished with asking anyone for help. She loaded the copter, not saying a word as she placed the quilt beside Raph, and as gently as she could, attempted to move him onto it.. but she just wasn't strong enough.


    Casey made sure the thing was intacted before giving a thumbs up. It helped that it didn't interferre with his hockey stick which was now straped to his back with a Donnie type strap. It was a little embarrasing having to be carried there but he sighed and nodded in agreement. The faster they got there the better..


    Finally someone answered. But April ignored it. She didn't want to argue with anyone. The three girls ran to the tower and once there put their plan into action. The foot and Shredder were busy with Raph's disperince and Laz's death to even notice the three girls walk in. The back door lead right to the kitchen and they were able to grab some cook uniforms to try and blend in. From there they quickly made their way to the elevator. They were passed by a few men but luckily they paid no mind to the girls. Once in the elevator they relaxed a bit. Soon they would be back in their boys' rooms and they could get out of there...Some how. They still didn't know how bad in shap Mike was or how they were going to move him. But they would figure that out later. The elevator stopped and the girls walked out. The storage room was just across the hall and once inside they locked the door. It took some doing but they finally moved the boxes away from the little door. One by one they crawled through the darkness and spider webs, obviously the tunnel hadn't been used in years. But finally they ended up in Don's closet. Slowly April opened the door and peeked in the room. "Guys?"


    He moved out of his seat in order to help Lexi "Do you have any poles about 7 feet long.. They would help a lot, just a blanket would leave little support for him."


    Angel proceeded to help her. Yes she was still bitter with the turtles, she had been hurt both physically and mentally buy both the Turks and Dragons. And the turtles were never there to save her. She soon got use to the abuse, if that's even possible, but still, it angered her that the so called 'nightwatcher' could save everyone in the city and not her.


    Leatherhead noticed the lack of response in the comm and sighed, then looks to Casey "Alright..." he moved into the water, the cold not seeming to bother him much and waited for Casey to get in as well.


    "I've got him." Lexi snapped at the man, though, not intentionally. She was just so overwhelmed and hurt that her emotions and anger were getting the better of her. But no sooner as the heated words left her lips, she broke down once again.. defeated. "I'm sorry." She quietly apologized, and wiped at her tears, thankful that he was actually trying to help. "I could probably find some logs.." She managed to say, but her mood once again turned sour as she saw Angel trying to help. "Not you..just back off." She seethed. "You pretty much just said you don't give a fuck."


    Angel wasn't about to let this woman talk to her like that. She glared at Lexi then reached back and aimed a hard slap at her face. "Fuck you! And why should I care? They sure as hell don't!"


    ..and Lexi returned the favor, but with a more forceful punch to the brat's face. This bitch was really pissing her off!


    Don continued his gentle attentions to his brother's arm. "Yes, but you need to stay in one place so you'll heal faster. Not only that, but you'll stay more comfortable if you don't aggravate your wounds." Just then he heard a familiar voice coming from the closet. Carefully he sat up, blinking. "April?" He couldn't believe it. Their rescue party was here already. He glanced down at Mike and then slowly got up. "How did you get here?" he asked his friend, carefully making his way over to her.


    Angel fell backwards but quickly gathered herself. She sat up, but instead of attacking Lexi she hopped out the plan and started walking off. She didn't need to deal with this. She had came here to help! She grabbed her phone and dialed on of her boys numbers, hoping that they could come pick her up.


    April smiled and gave Don a light hug. "They helped." She said motioning to the girls. Rini hugged Don and Fraya slipped in bed with Mike. "Now to get you two out.


    Donatello returned the hug then hugs Rini when she ran up to him. He was having trouble keeping control over his emotions again and decided not to say anything and just held Rini for a few minutes. "I missed you so much," he finally said in a choked whisper. He knew he would have to keep it together long enough to get everyone out of there. Turning back to April, he managed to regain most of his control. "Where are the others?"


    He was a little caught off guard about that and with the growing frustration with the trouble he was having with Angel.. and now this. "Oh for... " he took a deep breath and looks to Lexi and Raph, then Angel. Why him? Why the hell did he have to be the one with the helicopter access. "Stay with him. " he got up and stepped outside closing the door behind him not to let the heat out and walked after Angel. "Angel."


    Unaware of the girls' arrival, Mike had dozed off. But his slumber was short lived, interrupted by his brother's movement. He groaned, and reluctantly forced his heavy eyes to open, seriously not believing what he was seeing. He managed a grin, despite feeling it was nothing more than his dream. "Heh... hey!" And then, the warmth that was Fraya was now snuggled beside him. "If I'm dreaming.. I don't wanna wake up.."


    "Other...turtles or other rescue people. because I don't know on both accounts. I know that Casey and Leatherhead are suppose to be grabbing Leo." She sat down on one of the chairs and looked over at Mike. "So how bad is he?"


    Angel turned around to face Gordon and closed her phone. She folded her arms and tried to get her emotions under control. "I would like, to go home now...Please." She said as calmly as she could.


    Fraya grinned at Mike and planted a kiss on his lips. "nope you're not dreaming. We've come to save you! How are you feeling?"


    Gordon: He took a breath putting his hand to his forehead. "Yea, I got that message. But what the hell were you thinking?" he motioned to the copter.


    Donatello: Don sighed and looked over at Mike. "Bad enough that he shouldn't be moved any more than necessary," he answered, looking at Fraya snuggling up with his brother. "I honestly don't know how we'll get him out in this condition." 'Not without a tremendous amount of pain,' he added silently. He was hoping Mike would get some rest before this time came around. The only thing Mike succeeded in doing was making things more difficult for himself. But at least they had help now.


    Lexi: Once Gordon stepped out of the copter, Lexi completely broke down. She buried her face against Raph, trying hard to get herself under control. She had seriously never felt so alone in all her life, and so helpless. She couldn't get Raph inside the damn house. 'Raph, I really need you right now.' She thought, choking back a sob. She caressed his face, trying hard to catch her breath as she pulled her cell from her uniform. But then she remembered. The only friend she had to call was Laz.. and he was back at the tower...


    Angel: "She started it! You heard her. The woman doesn't want me here, and I don't want to be here. I never wanted to help in the first place. I just....I just wanted to stay, in the hotel, with you." She said finally giving in to her emotions. She wiped at her face as tears rolled down her cheeks. "None of them...Care about me, why should I do anything for them? Please. Lets just kick them out the copter, bring it back and go home...Please."


    Casey Jones: Casey stepped into the cold water and tried to get in as slowly as he could. This was rediculous... but as he steped in he soon realized the water was deeper then expected and ended up completely underwater. He flailed around as he finally made it to the surface and swam up to Leatherhead. He then grabbed onto his shoulders. "..Ready." He coughed out as he brushed some of his wet hair out of his face.


    Gordon: "How can they when you refuse to give them a chance? I'm putting my job on the line trying to help them and you've fought even me the entire way!"


    Angel: "I gave them a chance. Raph and his..fuckin Nightwatcher costume, playing super hero. He went around, saving woman and kids, and putting the bad guys away. All of them! They ran the roof tops, Casey too. All looking out for danger, helping those in trouble. But when I was being fuckin gang raped in the back alley and beaten! They were no where! And it wasn't just one time, no...So why should I give a damn about them?"


    Michelangelo: "Heh.. I'm okay." He replied, but obviously that was not the case. Still, if a rescue team was here to spring them, he was not going to be the reason for them holding back!
