    Sands of Time

    Post by Gabriel on Mon Apr 18, 2011 2:30 pm

    The last few months had been a rocky road to recovery, full of ups and downs. The fact that Gabriel had survived his ordeal was nothing short of a miracle, but even miracles come with complications. His body was mending, but even with Lexi's help and the stories of his life, it seemed his memory was gone forever. It was frustrating, having no memory of who he was, or the people that played important roles in his life. He would often sink into deep depression, becoming reclusive for days on end.


    It was part of his old personality seeping through, or at least that's what Lexi once told him. He wouldn't know. It was just hard to see the positive when he was a stranger to himself. He felt like a prisoner in his own body. But as dark as times seemed, he was thankful for Lexi's efforts, and all the woman had done for him. And for Serenity. His salvation.


    Despite his best efforts, he had fallen in love with Serenity, but tried to keep that to himself. Afraid of her rejection. Afraid of her true feelings. Just.. afraid. She seemed to like him, but he wondered what she felt for him. Was she there simply because she felt it was her duty, her job? Or because she thought of him as a friend? He wasn't sure, and his esteem was too low to think she would like someone like him. A cripple with no memory.


    While he was much stronger than before, his body was still weak and he had been plagued with seizures brought on by the scar tissue in his brain. His doctor had suggested surgery, but that came with risks. There was a chance that he may not make it through the operation, or even worse, he could be left paralyzed. A life in a wheel-chair was a risk he wasn't willing to take. After many trials and errors, the doctors finally found a medication that kept the seizures in remission, for now.



    But despite his hardships, he had found refuge and peace out by the ocean. He would spend many a days sitting out by the water, toes buried in the warm sand. The spring's rays felt good against his scarred skin. Lexi's home was usually busy with the family of her boyfriend. He had several 'brief' encounters with Lexi's 'unique' friends, and he could sense that her boyfriend didn't like him much. But he usually kept to himself, retreating to his refuge out by the ocean to find his calm.


    He had been out there several hours today, feeling confident enough in his solitude to remove his shirt and expose the scars he was so self-conscious about, allowing the sun's rays to envelop him. His back leaning against a fallen log, sketch-pad resting against his knees as he sketched the tides and the sun and seagulls, a lazy pit bull resting at his side.

    All through Gabe's recovery, Serenity was always there by his side. She no longer had her apartment, and had to move most of her things into a storage unit. She had thought about getting a place by the beach as well, but for now was content with staying at Lexi's place, helping Gabe every way that she could.

    When Gabe would fall into his depressions it worried her, Lexi told her that it was just part of his personality, but it didn't stop her from worrying.

    Then the seizures started. They scared her, and the thought of him going through surgery and not making it scared her even more. She too had fallen in love, and would some nights would hide herself away in the shower, crying to herself. She was so scared that she would lose him. Just the thought made her sick and brought her to tears. But she would always stay strong in front of Gabe.

    Serenity walked out the front door, she wore a long short sleeved dress, her feet bare and hair carelessly falling over her shoulders.

    She walked out on to the beach and over to Gabe. She wasn't sure if this was one of those times he wanted to be alone or not, so she quietly sat next to him and smiled.

    It wasn't the first time that she had seen him without a shirt, but with the sun on him, and his body healing, she was able to get a better view. She blushed a little and quickly moved her eyes to his sketchpad.

    "That's really good." She finally said, breaking the silence. She dug her toes in the sand and wrapped her arms around her knees. If he wanted to be alone, she was sure that he would let her know.

    So engrossed in his drawing, coupled with his faulty eyesight, Gabe was unaware of Serenity until she was right up on him, and now seated next to him. It caught him off guard. His gaze shifted to her and he quickly reached for his shirt, sliding back into it. Hiding the scars. True, she had seen the scars before. Hell, she had seen almost every inch of him during her time as his care-giver. But that didn't make him feel any less insecure.


    He tried to push the awkwardness aside, a warm grin stretching across his lips. He usually came out here to be alone, but Serenity was always the exception. Her warmth always made it impossible to be bothered by her presence. His gaze shifted back to the pad, remembering her earlier compliment.


    "Thanks." He replied quietly, sparing her a crooked smile. His gaze shifted back to her, and he caught himself staring at her. She looked so beautiful, the way the sunlight complimented everything about her. He finally managed to break his stare, ducking his eyes back toward the sketch-pad as he added a few finishing touches. "Needed some quiet time too, huh?"

    Serenity was going to stop him from putting his shirt on, not so that she could stare at him...Well...It wasn't the only reason anyway. But to try get him to see that there was nothing wrong with his body. But she didn't, not wanting to make him uncomfortable. In time she hoped that he would gather his selfconfidence.

    She scooted closer to him and laid her head on his shoulder. "Yeah. It was getting stuffy in there. I was thinking, if you're up for it, I can rent a boat and we can go out on the water. I think it would be nice..."

    Serenity's closeness always managed to put him at ease. Her warmth was intoxicating. Comforting. His arm slowly slipped around her waist and he rested his cheek against her head, listening as she spoke, a small smile stretching across his lips.

    "Sure. I'm up for it."

    Serenity leaned up and planted a kiss against his cheek. "Great. Just let me know when you want to go."

    Carefully she wrapped an arm around Gabe's middle and snuggled close to him. "Can I see other pictures that you drew?"

    It had taken months but Raphael was finally able to get up and walk again. Of course the first thing he did was lift weights, he had felt like his body was turning to mush. But it wasn't the only reason, it was a great distraction and he was doing this for a few hours a day which became a bit excessive. He couldn't forget that night no matter how long he worked out though.

    His injuries had improved but he would still feel occasional pain from the nasty scar it left. His mental state was still a bit fragile as he would wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, good thing was that he wasn't screaming when he woke up anymore. His main support was his girl Lexi and he tried hard to appear that everything was fine. He didn't want her to worry about him anymore.

    Raphael normally only left his room to train and to eat, he had a habit of going into deep depression from an early age. So this wasn't anything new for his brothers. He was starting to get used to Gabe and his girl staying there but rarely said a word to the guy. Raph still didn't like the guy much despite the fact that he didn't remember anything. To Raph he was still the same guy he had met many months ago.

    He rarely left Lexi's beach house to go to the Lair due to Donatello's girlfriend. It infuriated him that Rini was still working at the Tower after what that monster she calls father tried to do to him and his family. It made him very uneasy that she was still allowed to come to the Lair and he felt that an attack was just a matter of time. This only added to his depression. He missed his brothers but at least they would still drop by from time to time.

    It was now Easter but to him it was just like any other day, he never really understood this holiday. He was in the makeshift training room that Lexi had managed to put together for him and was lifting barbell weights. He had one in each hand as he bent his elbows one at a time, alternating between his two arms.

    Mike had fully mended over the last several months, the scar on his plastron a permanent reminder of his ordeal back at the tower. The experience still haunted him, and he often had nightmares, but it was something he hardly talked about with anyone. He would often be scared into slipping into bed with one of his brothers on the nights that Fraya wasn't there, too spooked to sleep alone.


    He had been spending a lot of time with Fraya, and had grown quite attached to the girl. There was no doubt that he loved and adored her. He was like a little love-struck puppy dog, following her around with big doe eyes.


    Lexi's place had become like a second home to him. He absolutely LOVED it there. It felt good to be able to walk outside and be able to feel the sun's rays against his skin, and not have to worry about being spotted. Lexi invited them to visit and stay as much as they would like, and perhaps he took advantage of that offer, staying as often as he could get away with. It seriously beat the dark and stinky sewers! He hardly ever saw the human guy that lived there. It seemed the dude tried to avoid them as much as possible, but on the rare occasions that their paths did cross, Mike couldn't help but throw a jab about him being Slim Shady's long lost brother. But it would seem that Gabe didn't get his humor.


    Just like many nights, Mike had once again crashed at Lexi's place, happy that Fraya could join him. He was super excited about Easter, and buzzed around the kitchen, helping her prepare eggs for dyeing, and treats that hopefully everyone would love.

    Fraya had finally started working. It wasn't the best job in the world, but she got to meet intresting people. Sadly, the job had her working most nights, she hated working nights. She would much rather be in bed with Mike.

    She was able to get a car and was starting to look for a small apartment. But everything was so pricey.

    Now she stood in Lexi's kitchen waiting for the eggs to boil. Mike started getting the watery paint together and eating candy. She looked him over then reached out and grabbed his mask tails.

    "Hey. I think we should paint your shell." She said and pulled him close to her. "Maybe something with bunnies."

    During the early stages of Raph's recovery, Lexi remained faithfully at his side. She tried to help him in every way she could, but knew there was nothing she could do to ease the nightmares, and that upset her. She had spend many sleepless nights trying to sooth him, and tending to his wounds. She was so afraid of losing him. It was a huge relief when he started getting better, and while it seemed the nightmares still haunted him, he was dealing a lot better. In time, she hoped the nightmares would stop all together, but all in all, she was happy with his progress.


    She was also grateful with how far Gabriel had come. Though, there had been a few set backs. The depression was to be expected, but the seizures broke her heart. He had been through so much and it seemed fate had dealt him another cruel hand. She was torn on whether he should have the surgery or not. Both came with risks, but she respected his decision. At least the medications seemed to be helping. She was glad that Serenity chose to stick around, seeing the effect that she had on Gabriel.


    Over the last several months, Lexi had told Gabriel stories of his past, hoping that something would spark a memory, but so far, nothing seemed to register with him. She had chosen to leave out the more painful details of his life. Like how she had left him, and she had completely left out Fal. That woman had been responsible for the grief that plagued the final days of Gabe's past life. No reason for him to have to relive the pain.


    Lexi was still hesitant to tell Gabe that Jake was his son, knowing it would raise questions that she felt he wasn't ready for their answers. She also felt he wasn't strong enough to take on the responsibility, and didn't want him to feel obligated or pressured. And there was that other reason. She wasn't ready to give up her baby. Her son. Her only chance at motherhood. It tore at her heart to even think about losing him, but she knew the day was coming. She would eventually tell Gabe, because he deserved to know. Deserved his son. Even if it would crush her.


    Lexi had invited Raph's family to visit anytime they would like, knowing her boyfriend needed that family connection. She had expected him to start going home more to be with them, but understood his reluctance to be around Rini, who was still working for Shredder. It seriously made no sense to her why some of them didn't seem to consider the danger. Hell, from what she understood, the girl was living in the lair with Don. She still felt a little jealous, since she had pretty much been asked to leave during her stay at the lair.



    She tolerated the almost constant visits from Raph's family and friends. Though, it did make it nearly impossible for her to spend any quality time with him. They still hadn't been intimate, either because of his healing, or his company. She was growing restless and needy, but kept quiet. Sometimes it made her wonder if he had lost interest in her.


    Lexi had kept in touch with Laz, and often dropped by to see how he was doing, and hang out when she needed a break from the crowd back at her home. She still harbored deep feelings for the man, and felt jealousy towards Rose, and envious that she had a man that could take her to dinner and a movie. Who would go for walks in the park... and would touch her. Still, despite how jealous she was of the girl, she liked Rose, and tried to be happy for Laz.


    *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    The front door opened and Lexi quietly slipped inside, returning from her venture into town to buy groceries. A large brown bag nestled in one arm, Jake in the other. She placed the bag onto the coffee table, deciding to put them up once she had both hands free, overhearing Mike and Fraya in the kitchen. She really hoped that they didn't leave a mess for her to clean up later.


    She craned her head to the side, picking up the faint sounds of metal clicking as weights were being lifted. She headed up the stairs, destined for the makeshift gym that she had put together with Raph in mind. It didn't take her long to find him, and she loomed in the doorway, watching as he worked out. A smile stretched across her lips, taking in his sculptured body. He had always been so handsome to her.



    She watched him for a few minutes before stepping inside, adjusting Jake in her arms. "Hey Sexy..."

    Carefully she wrapped an arm around Gabe's middle and snuggled close to him. "Can I see other pictures that you drew?"


    Gabe melted at that kiss, momentarily forgetting that she was too good for him. He gave a soft nod and flipped the sketch-pad to the first page. A sketch of Serenity he'd done from memory, of her standing out by the ocean, wind blowing her beautiful hair. He gave a small, sheepish grin, hoping she didn't mind.


    "It's hard to capture that much beauty on paper." He said quietly, sparing a timid smile.


    There were a few more sketches in the book. One of Jigs lounging on the couch. Another of a woman that sometimes haunted his dreams. Someone he had no memory of. Someone that had torn his heart out in his life before this.

    Serenity smiled brightly. "It's beautiful, Gabe. You are very talented." She looked at the other pictures then turned to look at him.

    She so badly wanted him to kiss her. She had never been kissed before, never wanted any of they guys she knew to touch her in any way. But she wanted Gabe to. She just didn't know how to hint to it.Or if he would even want to.

    She tucked her hair behind her ear and blushed a little. "I really like you." She finally admitted, her cheeks getting more red.

    Gabriel really wasn't expecting that. But he tried not to get his hopes up. She liked him. Probably just meant as friends. But gazing into her eyes, and seeing the heat that flushed her skin convinced him that she meant otherwise. He was nervous, still fearing her rejection, but he had to know where he stood with her. Slowly, he closed the small distance between them, pressing his lips softly against hers...

    Serenity was hoping for this, but not expecting it. Her breath caught and stomach tighten, her heart felt like it was going to beat right out of her chest. His lips felt so wonderful against hers.She closed her eyes and returned the kiss, trying to calm herself at first, but then finally letting go and letting her needs take over.

    She reached a hand up and laid it lightly on his cheek, the kiss deepened and a small moan escaped her throat causing another blush to cover her cheeks.

    He kissed her softly at first, bracing himself and waiting for the rejection that didn't come. Her lips felt so good against his, so natural. He savored her feel, her taste. A warmth rushing over him as his body reacted, craving her. But he knew not to go too far too fast. His eyes slid closed as the kiss deepened, one hand moving up to caress her cheek...lingering for as long as she would allow...

    She let the kiss last for awhile before slowly pulling away. She didn't go to far though, just enough to catch her breath and speak.

    "That was my first kiss." She confessed quietly, a smile never leaving her face. "Is it normal to feel butterflies in your stomach?" She asked and nuzzled against him.

    Raphael had hardly noticed Lexi standing in the doorway, he was just lost in his own thoughts. He turned slightly as he heard her enter and couldn't help but smile at her greeting.

    "Hey babe." He said as he placed the barbells back on the rack and grabbed a nearby towel. He dabbed his face with it before placing it around his shoulders. He would have hugged her but thought better of it, she looked very beautiful in her nice outfit and he was all sweaty.

    He noticed she had little Jake in his arms and Raph looked down at him. "Wha's up lil' man." He said in his best baby voice but still wasn't to good at it. He was growing attached to Jake but knew just like Lexi did that Gabe would someday be taking him back. It was sad to think about but he was more worried about how Lexi would take it. She was such a great mom and he wished that he was able to have kids with her. Guess fatherhood was just something that wasn't meant for a mutant turtle.

    He then looked back at Lexi. "Mikey destroy the kitchen yet?"

    Angel hated the ride out of the city and to the beach. But once she was at the beach she loved it! She had 'borrowed' a car and was now pulling up at the beach house.

    She noticed Serenity and Gabe, but from where she was she couldn't tell who they were. She headed into the house, not bothering to knock.

    "Helloooooooo I'm here! I know you all missed me."

    Lexi leaned in to close the distance between them, and placed a kiss against Raph's lips, running a finger along his muscular arm. "Mmhm.." She hummed against his lips, allowing the kiss to linger for a moment before reluctantly pulling away. It was one of those times that she wished she had him all to herself. It seemed she would never get a chance to quench her craving.


    "I think they're down there body-painting." She informed with a faint grin, recalling what she'd overheard while passing the kitchen. Fortunately for her, being upstairs spared her of hearing Angel's announcement. She could live in bliss a few more seconds, at least. She ran a finger along Raph's jaw, smiling at him.


    "Happy Easter." She really hoped today would be good for him since he hadn't been able to enjoy Christmas. Hell, she could use a good day, too.

    Mike was busy doing his part to insure that everyone had a good Easter when suddenly Fraya grabbed his bandana tails. He jerked back with a giggle, a huge grin running across his lips.

    "Then I can paint you!! Then we can double-team Raph!" His smile grew even wider. "I think he would look cute in Daisies!"


    Just then he heard Angel, but was too indulged in their plans to pop his head out of the kitchen to greet her. "In here, Angel..."

    "That was my first kiss." She confessed quietly, a smile never leaving her face. "Is it normal to feel butterflies in your stomach?" She asked and nuzzled against him.


    Her... first kiss? He found that hard to believe. She was so beautiful. But it shouldn't be so surprising. She was a great person, and it only made sense that she had high standards, even if that meant holding out. He didn't voice his disbelief, not wanting to make her uncomfortable. The fact that she had chosen to tell him meant a lot. The fact that she had chosen him.


    He nuzzled against her, pressing a soft kiss against her cheek. "I'm glad to be your first." He breathed quietly, holding her close. Her question earned a quiet chuckle. "I think so. When you really like someone." He winked. "I felt 'em, too."

    Fraya pressed a kiss against Mike's lips. "We are totally going to get Raph! Oooooh we could paint his shell to look like a ladybug!"

    It was then that she heard Angel. She wondered why the girl kept coming here when she knew that Lexi didn't want her there. But she didn't say anything. At lest the girl was trying to be better, quiting drugs and all. And Fraya could tell that Angel tried her best to be nice, it just didn't always work out.

    "We're thinking of things to paint on Raph." She told Angel when she walked in.

    "Oooooh...how about painting his shell like a giant easter egg!" Angel suggested while plucking a beer from the fridge. "By the way, who's the two people out there on the beach?"

    Serenity practically wrapped herself around him. Her bare legs resting on his, her arms wrapped around him. She giggled and placed a soft kiss against his lips.

    It was then that the phone in her pocket went off. She reached down and grabbed it then looked at the text message that popped up on her phone. She turned it so that Gabe could see too.

    "Mikko says happy easter."

    Gabe was perfectly content having her wrapped around him. He hugged her close, nuzzling softly against her neck. She was a good distraction from his inner turmoil. Then her phone rang, pulling him back to reality. He squinted to see the small letters of the text, but his faulty vision made it nearly impossible. He was glad that Serenity read it out, not wanting to admit that he couldn't see it.


    "Tell her Happy Easter." He gave her a gentle squeeze, nuzzling her cheek. "Happy Easter to you, too." He breathed against her ear.

    Serenity text Mikko back then tucked her phone away. she then turned her attention back to Gabe and reached up, running her fingers through his hair.

    "Happy easter to you aw well." She said softly and planted a soft kiss against his forehead.
