    Silent Night

    Post by Lexi on Wed Feb 09, 2011 4:16 pm

    Lexi had spent the night faithfully by Raph's side. She monitored his every breath, every heartbeat. She managed to get a few minutes sleep here and there, but the worry and concern she had for him kept her on edge. He was showing subtle signs of improvement. But she knew he wasn't out of the woods. So many things could still go wrong, and she couldn't risk dozing off for long periods at a time.


    She had invited April and Casey to spend the night. Fortunately one of the bedrooms had already been furnished with a bed, and her large leather couch had been placed inside the den. She had offered them pillows and blankets, not really paying much attention to their choices in sleeping arrangements. She was thankful to have them close. Raph was lucky, she thought. He had such amazing friends, and family that loved him dearly. She was thankful that Leo seemed to accept her now.


    The early morning rays seeped through the small cracks of the closed blinds, signifying the arrival of a new day. Lexi was curled up beside Raph, her face buried against his shoulder. She shifted slightly, gazing up at his face. Just like every other time she had gazed up at him, he was still sleeping soundly. She was grateful in a sense. At least he wasn't hurting, but she longed to see his eyes. To hear his voice... to know that he was still with her. She slid up just enough to nuzzle and kiss his cheek, hoping he could sense her.. could feel her.


    "I love you, babe..." She whispered, pressing another light kiss against his snout.

    Leo had slept very well that night. Now, he slowly opened his eyes and looked over at the bed. He couldn't help a small smile seeing Lexi interact with his brother. But soon he cleared his throat indicating that he was awake.

    "Morning." He whispered. He then sat up and started to fold the blanket neatly. "How's he doing?"

    April had stayed over at Lexi's home as well. She slept on the couch, which was quiet comfortable. But her eye lids fluttered open as the sun shown through the windows.

    She sat up and stretched her arms over her head with a loud yawn. She then headed to the kitchen and started looking for the coffee maker.

    Serenity woke up early that morning and looked up at Gabe. She gave his hand a light squeeze then slowly sat up just as she heard little Jake wake as well.

    She quickly went over to the baby and took him in the bathroom to take care of him. After she brought him out and gave him his bottle.

    She then grabbed her phone and called Lexi. She would have called her last night, but figured that she was busy with the turtles. She sat down on Gabe's bed. Feeding Jake with the phone wedged between her ear and shoulder, waiting for Lexi to answer.

    Casey fought April about her taking the couch but soon gave in due to exhaustion. He figured the fact that she was so insistent on him taking the bedroom was because he slept in his boxers and that she wouldn't want to expose Lexi to that. Casey was sprawled out over the queen sized bed, he was barely even under the covers anymore.

    He was sleeping like a rock and was amazed how comfortable this bed was compared to his own back at the apartment. It seemed that he wouldn't be waking up anytime soon after the long night.

    April finally managed to find everything to make some coffee. While it was all heating up she headed to the room Casey was in. Indeed she didn't want Lexi to have to wake up to Casey's nakedness. And she figured that he earned the bed for everything that he had went through.

    Now she was quietly opening up the bedroom door and slipping inside the room. She looked at his sleep form and smiled while shaking her head. Good thing she took the couch.

    She pulled the covers over him before heading out the room.

    Well, it didn't seem like Raph would be responding to her affections. She sighed inwardly, unable to help feeling a little disappointed. She wanted some kind of response, if even a slight movement. Anything. She was so focused on Raph that she hadn't realized that Leo had woke, until he cleared his throat and spoke up. She shifted her gaze in his direction, offering him a warm grin.


    "Morning." She greeted, then looked at Raph as Leo asked about his brother's condition, then back to the eldest turtle. "His color's a lot better. But he's still out of it..." She was about to say more, but the ringing of her cell phone grabbed her attention. She gave Leo an apologetic look, then reached for her cell, checking the number before answering. Had it not been Serenity or someone important, she would've ignored it. But she knew Serenity probably had a reason for calling.


    "Hello?"

    "Lexi, goodmorning. I'm sorry I didn't call last night, but I knew you were probably busy. Gabe woke up last night. he's a alert and was responsive. But...He's got no memory of anything or anyone." She added sadly.

    "That's normal though, things will start coming back to him. and Jake and Jigs are doing good to."

    Raphael was out cold all night which was probably a good thing due to the whole blood transfusion thing. Despite Lexi being faithfully beside him, it did not help keep the violent nightmares away. It seemed that Bishop helped bring one of his greatest fears to life and Raphael was having trouble pushing it out of his mind. He was still pretty out of it, not to mention confused.

    Lexi's affection would help him tug at the surface of his unconsciousness but it was short lived as it seemed to be pulled away again. His body tensed as his breathing became uneven. All he could think about was that damn laboratory and trying to escape it..

    Lexi's heart nearly skipped a beat, hearing the good news. Her face lit up for the first time in days. Gabe was awake.. there was hope. She wasn't too concerned to hear about his memory loss. He had been comatose for months, after all. It would take some time for things to come back to him. But at least he was awake!


    "That's great!" She chimed, and looked over at Leo.. wishing she had someone to share the good news with. But the Blue-clad turtle would be oblivious, so she would just have to keep it to herself. "Raph still hasn't came to.. but I'll be there as soon as possible, okay? How's Jake?"


    It was then that she noticed the distress that Raph seemed to be in. She continued to caress his cheek, and pressed soft kisses against his snout, and whispered quiet reassurances against his ear.

    "No rush. Jake is fine." She told Lexi. She was sad to hear that Raph hadn't woken up yet. "Is Leo ok?" It was the only one of the turtles she actually knew, and she was worried about him, even though they hadn't talked in a while.

    Raphael was lost inside the memories of the night before but suddenly he felt the soft kisses on his face. It was a distraction and was followed by the whispering in his ear. This seemed to calm him down as his body relaxed a bit but he would not awaken as much as he wished to. He was still to weak..

    "Yeah, Leo's a little beaten up.. but he's okay."Lexi replied, and spared a glance over at the blue clad turtle, then back down at Raph. It seemed her soothing whispers were calming him down, and she hoped that she would eventually be able to get him to wake. She kissed and nuzzled him, and whispered a soft 'I Love You' against his ear.


    "Would you like to speak to Leo?" Lexi asked Serenity, in between her affectionate gestures..

    "Ummm...No, that's ok. I'm just glad to hear he's ok." Serenity laid Jake over her shoulder and patted his back lightly.

    "Did you hear that Mikko's in prison for murder?" She asked, changing the subject. Things just always got awkward when she talked to Leo.

    Leo couldn't think of who would be on the phone that knew him and wasn't in the rescue party. The last person he would have though of Serenity. It had been forever since he talked to her.

    He stood up from the chair and quietly headed out the room when the smell of coffee reached the bedroom.

    April smiled at Leo when he walked out the room. She handed him a cup of coffee. "Lexi awake?" She asked.

    "Yeah. She's on the phone right now, Raph's still out of it." He informed.

    April nodded and poured another cup of coffee. She then went into Lexi's room and quietly offered her the cup.
