    Lin watched as Casey came in with the new turtle and busied herself with checking Raph's heart rate too make sure he was doing alright-- well, for his current situation.

    This whole thing was still so surreal to her, walking upright, talking humanoid turtles. It was pretty amazing actually. At the question of the transfusion, she glances up biting her lip a moment and nodded. "I'll have to get the machine from my car."

    She gave a polite bow of her head and quickly made her way out of the room leaving them to find a place for the new turtle to sit and made her way to her car to fetch the machine.. her mind still whirling from the entire situation...

    The sound of the opening door earned Lexi's attention. Her tear-filled gaze shifted in Leo and Casey's direction, watching the blue clad turtle as he approached his brother. She couldn't suppress the tears, seeing the guilt and regret in his eyes, his tone laden with sorrow. All of their differences were put aside for that moment,and she reached out, giving his hand a reassuring squeeze.


    "It's not your fault." She said quietly, but knew her words would probably fall on deaf ears. Hearing April's request, she carefully got up from the bed and headed into the den, pushing a reclining chair into the bedroom. She situated it beside the bed, and motioned for Leo to take a seat.


    "Can I get you anything?" She offered the blue-clad turtle, knowing the procedure would take some time.

    When Lexi brought the chair in, he stood up and walked over to it. At her question he shook his head, but embraced her in a hug. "Thank you." He told her softly before pulling away and siting in the chair.

    He looked over at Raph once more before reclining back and closing his eyes. "Maybe...A blanket." He asked, suddenly feeling a chill.

    Lexi was not expecting the hug, but returned it wholeheartedly. She hoped that she had proven herself to Leo, and hoped that now he would trust her. Her love for his brother was sincere. She had risked her life for him.. for them. They were her family, and she was in this through thick and thin.

    "You're welcome." She whispered, squeezing him tightly before allowing him to pull away. She grabbed an extra blanket from one of the boxes, and pulled it over Leo's body, tucking it around him.


    "Is that better, or do you need another?"

    Leo pulled the blanket up and settled back in the chair. "No I'm good, thank you." He said and waited for the process to start.

    Lin came back with the machine and set it down where it was convenient and looked up at the new turtle again. "Are you sure you're a match... uhm... what was your name?" attempting to start a conversation. Not every day her patients are able talk back... "I could do a test, but that could take some time..." trails off a bit glancing to the other turtle.

    "Leonardo. And I'm sure we're a match." He said, opening up his eyes and looking over at her. "What's your name?"

    Faint sounds once again penetrated the eternal darkness, teasing the senses. They had come through several times before, but always too distant, too impossible to latch onto. He could distinguish that familiar voice as Serenity talked with Chris on the phone-- the faceless voice that had invaded the emptiness-- the lifeline that pulled him back. The pull was becoming stronger. The darkness felt less restraining as his senses slowly began to return, but gathering the strength just to wake was proving difficult.


    He struggled, even as the room fell silent of her voice, giving way to the more sinister orchestra of medical equipment. It only added to his urgency, his determination to overcome this darkness that was keeping him confined. The monitors slowly began to show an increase in heart rate and breathing.His fingers twitched, eyes fluttering beneath darkened eyelids. His attempts were met with failure, causing a mixture of frustration and fear. But he had always been a fighter.. he wouldn't give up now.


    As he struggled for consciousness, he was slowly becoming more aware. The harsh plastic breathing tube cut into his throat, earning a slight wince...


    ..and finally, his eyes fluttered open, but his gaze was met with more darkness as his eyes tried to adjust to their first rays of light in months. Slowly, they began to adjust but his sight was still obscured by the fuzziness caused by the trauma. Still, his green eyes fixated on the silhouette of the young woman who sat beside him, taking her in for the first time...

    Smiles a tad when he replies. "Lin. I just wanted to be sure." she sets up the machine quickly hooking up everything as needed before standing again. She watched Raph a moment before pressing a gloved hand to his arm looking for the vein before carefully pressing the needle in.

    She then turns looking to Leonardo again lifting up the other needle bringing a hand to his arm touching it looking for the vein pausing when she finds it. "Ready, Leonardo?"

    She felt more nervous now... with Raph.. he was unconscious, so it really wasn't much different than working on one of her... more normal patients. Leonardo was awake, more aware and... talking to her. Somehow, she couldn't help but feel childishly happy about the idea that he spoke.

    Leo stretched out his arm for Lin and nodded his head. "Ready as I'll ever be." He answered. "How much is he going to need?"

    Serenity watched on in amazement and excitement as Gabe started showing signs of life. She placed a hand on his cheek and spoke words of encoregment to him.

    When he finally did open his eyes, she smiled down at him. "Hey you. Welcome back."

    She gently pressed the needle into the vein. "I'd say more than you can give him. Though, with some luck, it will bring him out of danger." She offered a faint smile before turning to turn the machine on.

    Leo nodded at that and watched as Lin put the needle in his arm. He then closed his eyes again. He was so tired, and every part of his body hurt. He would take this chance to get a little more sleep.

    Lest the chair was comfortable, more so then his own bed.

    Casey watched as Leonardo saw his brother laying on the bed. It was so depressing and he didn't bother consoling Leonardo after he blamed himself again, it wouldn't have done any good anyway. He was surprised though that Leonardo actually hugged Lexi and thought it was kinda sweet in a way. It seemed Raphael had managed to accidentally patch things up between the two.

    Casey kept out of the way as Lexi and Lin gathered everything that was needed for the procedure and felt a little out of place. He was leaned up against the wall just watching and wasn't quite sure what it was that he could do to help. His eyes wondered down to April as Leonardo's words still lingered in his head. Though now didn't seem like the time to talk things out.

    April watched on, hoping that it would be enough to save Raph. she kept quiet through the process, moving out of the way to let the vet work.

    It was when she felt Casey's eyes on her that she finally looked up. She gave him a weak smile then moved next to him. "I think I'm going to get some air." She said, figuring that there wasn't anything for her to do right now.

    Lin resisted a small pout as Leonardo rested his head back, she had been hoping he'd be up to talking some more. Though, she could tell just by looking he was tired and needed to rest and the process would likely make him more so. She settled for just monitoring the two turtles while the machine did it's job.

    Gabriel's eyes remained fixated on Serenity, unfaltering, even as the confusion set in. Her voice was familiar, but he didn't recognize her face, or his surroundings. The tube in his throat was becoming more noticeable. He tried to reach for it, but his arm was too weak. He felt trapped within his own body. He couldn't understand what was happening to him... what had happened to him...

    Casey tried to act as if he wasn't staring at her but it seemed a bit pointless. He nodded at her as she walked out and he waited a few minutes before following stepping out himself.

    "I'm gonna go outside fer' a' lil bit, holler if ya need meh." He announced to Lexi and Lin as he headed out the door, He then walked down the hallway then to the big pouch. He put his hands on the railing and leaned into it as he listened to the ocean waves. It was peaceful out here and he enjoyed it despite the cold air. He wasn't sure where April went off to, it was pretty dark outside.

    April hadn't gone far, she was sitting on the bottom of the stairs and turned when she heard Casey come out. She then turned back to the water.

    "It's nice out here, isn't it? Peaceful."

    Casey nearly jumped when he heard Aprils voice but quickly realized it was her. Times like these he wished he had ninja sensing powers like the turtles had, it always puzzled him as to how they did that.

    He didn't leave his spot and looked out at the serene darkness. "Ya it's nice, a lil different from the ol' farmhouse." He replied.

    "Mmm. But the farm house is nice too." She said as she looked over the snow covered beach.

    "So, I'm guessing you're still mad at me, uh?"

    Once Leo wa taken care of, Lexi crawled back onto the bed, resuming her spot beside Raph. She would've offered to help Lin with the procedure, but the woman seemed to have it under control.


    She rested her head gently against Raph's shoulder, watching and listening to the small conversation between Lin and Leo. She was trying to determine if they could truly trust this woman or not. She seemed eager to help, and was in fact doing just that. But what would happen once she left this place? Would their secret be safe with her? She would definitely be having a talk with her before she left. But for now, she kept quiet, listening to the faint sounds of Raph's beating heart.. thankful that it was still beating. She just hoped that the blood transfusion would be enough to pull him back from the edge.

    Her words sounded submerged.. distant. It took his brain a moment to process and comprehend, but he could understand her. However, he couldn't remember what had happened to him. He didn't even know who he was. He swallowed thickly, the tube in his throat causing him to cough. His watery eyes winced against the pain, and he once again attempted to reach for the invasive tube , determined to rip it out...

    Casey sighed deeply, he wasn't sure how to answer that. She had to know that he was still angry, who wouldn't be? Though the guys seemed to think nothing of it which he never understood. He didn't think he was wrong.

    "heh... guess so. I jus' don't get it, why not drop a' line once in a' while?! I didn't even know ya wer' leavin'." He said with frustration starting to show up in his voice. He was still leaning against the railing only this time he was looking in her direction.
