    Leo stood between the thugs and Gabe and Lexi. His swords ready to cut into the first person who dared to come any closer. Bones and Nick had already ran off with Tick close behind. Good.

    Mikko looked over at Gabe when he spoke to her. She fought back the tears that threaten to fall from his words. Now wasn't the time to worry about that. She could talk to Gabe later, try to make things better. She had always been able to make things better with him.

    She looked up at Dice and took his hand. "Lets get you home so I can fix you up."

    Leo walked closer to the two thugs that were left. "I would suggest doing as she says, unless you wish to end up like your friend there." Leo said, nodding over to Ike.

    "Gabe? Oh good she found you." But Laz noticed the panic in Gabe's voice, he flashed a worried glance over to Remey. "We're back at the grave yard where Lexi told us to meet her. Where are you? What's wrong?"

    Dice stumbled back when Gabriel hit his mark, slicing a large gash in his chest, cutting through muscle and exposing bone. Blood poured down his chest, soaking the front of his shirt. "Fuck.." He hissed, pressing a hand against the large injury, but it did little good. He wanted to go after Gabe and finish the job, but the dizziness was making that nearly impossible. He would have to surrender, for now.


    "Need to.. take care of them." He told Mikko. "If she lives.. yer ass is in big trouble if she rats you out." He still had mixed feelings about what had been done to the woman, but now was not the time to discuss this. He was on the verge of passing out from his injuries, and the turtle's arrival only prompted his decision to leave. He had heard about these creatures, but seeing one in person was something he wasn't prepared for. With Mikko's assistance, they left the alleyway.

    Mikko helped Dice out of the alley and started towards his house. "Don't worry about Lexi. She's not going to say anything to the cops. The worse she'll do is tell her boyfriend." She tried to assure him.

    "And I'm not worried about them, I'm worried about you. We need to get you home so I can patch you up."

    She put Dice's arm around her shoulder and slowly lead him home.

    "That bitch Mikko and her boys attacked Lexi." Gabe told Laz, stopping long enough to catch his breath. The injury was really starting to bother him, but he couldn't stop. Not until he got Lexi to someplace safe. "She's...hurt pretty bad." He didn't want to tell him that she was near death. To do so would to be to accept that himself. And she had to be okay. He couldn't live with this on his conscience. "I'm not far from you. I'm about a block away from Domino's Tavern." Again, he was forced to pause. "Can you meet up with me? We need to get her to a hospital..."

    Laz peeled out of his parking spot and drove like a mad man to where Gabe said he was. "We're almost there. Hang tight. You ok? You don't sound good?"

    But Laz could see them before he even finished his question. He parked in front of the two and Remey jumped out and opened the back door. He then helped Gabe get Lexi into the back seat.

    Once everyone left, Leo headed to where Gabe and Lexi went. He saw them getting into a car and reconized Remey. He walked up to them and handed Gabe a paper with his phone number on it.

    "Call if you need anything."

    He then stepped back into the shadows and dissapeard

    Gabriel was relieved to see how quickly they had made it, even before he could get off the phone with them. "M'fine." He answered Laz' question, but the rip in the side of his shirt and the blood would tell otherwise. He briefly acknowledged Leo long enough to take the paper, but there was no time to look at it right now. With a quiet thanks and Remey's assistance, he carefully placed Lexi into the back seat and slid in beside her, propping her head in his lap and gently caressing her cheek.


    "We're gonna get you help, babe. Just hang in there." He spoke quietly to her, hoping that she could hear. She was pale, but she still had a faint pulse. He would cling to that hope.

    Remey grabbed the first aid kit from the trunk and slipped in the back with Gabe and Lexi. Laz then took off to the hospital.

    Remey opened up the kit and took out bandages and started to tightly wrap up Lexi's wrist, trying to stop the blood flow. He then looked over at Gabe. "You don't look alright. Let me at lest try to stop that bleeding."

    Splinter walked in the lair with Don and sat down in his chair. He leaned back and closed his eyes. He knew that something wasn't right, and was even starting to think that maybe his time was up.

    He would fight that tho, not wanting to burden Don with his death. when the phone rang, he opened his eyes and answered it with a tired hello. The conversation didn't last but a few seconds and he hung up and turned his head to Don.

    While Splinter was getting settled, Don hurried off to do a couple things for his father, one being fixing him some tea, the other preparing his lab for the testing he was about to do. Don was more than worried by now. He had never seen his father like this before and it terrified him. But he wouldn't let Splinter leave them like this...not now.

    He came back into the living room as soon as the call ended for his sensei. "Master Splinter? Who was that?" He worked to get him as comfortable as possible.

    Gabe watched on as Remey worked on wrapping Lexi's mangled wrist and forearm, remembering her other injury, but the one to her breast seemed superficial.. the doctors could take care of that once they got to the hospital. He didn't want her exposed anymore than she had already been.


    He would have protested Remey's offer, but finally gave in, figuring it was better than arguing that he was okay. He pulled off his shirt, wincing at the pain the simple movement had caused, exposing the gash in his side. It was deep. The blade had nicked his lung, but fortunately hadn't done any major damage.. aside from the heavy bleeding. "Just a scratch." He tried to play it off.

    "Just a scratch my ass." Remey said and wrapped a bandage around him. "You should see a doctor too."

    It was then that Laz pulled up to the emergancy doors at the hospital. He parked and jumped out the car, running inside and coming back out with a wheelchair.

He allowed Mikko to assist him, and ever so slowly, they made their way back to his home. He had never been so happy to see the place. It had felt like months, not weeks, since he had last been here.


    They headed inside and he instantly crashed on the couch, hissing in pain. "Fucker got me pretty good." He stated the obvious, wishing the pain would just go away. This was NOT how he expected his homecoming to go. "That knife went in pretty deep. I know I had to hit somethin' vital... why the fuck didn't he go down.."

    Mikko laid him down on his couch and ran to the bathroom. She grabbed everything she could to bandage Dice up. She then ran back to his side.

    "Gabe tough, Don't worry, you'll get another chance to get him." She told him and lifted his shirt off of him. She then started to clean his wound. "I'm going to have to stich you up, babe."

    She pulled out a needle and thread. "Want something before I start?"

    But Gabriel had no intentions of seeing a doctor. He hated them. Hated hospitals and everything associated with them. He had spent far too long in one. But it was also a distaste carried over from his old life. Indeed, he had spent way too much time in hospitals.


    Once they were parked outside the emergency doors, Gabe climbed out of the vehicle, then carefully scooped Lexi up into his arms, declining the wheelchair. Those things were another high on the list of his dislikes. "I can walk.." He said stubbornly, and headed inside, demanding the immediate attention of a group of nurses, who were quick to respond. One broke away from the group and ran to get a doctor...

    Don didn't sense any danger being around Master Splinter like this...that is until he felt his father choking him. He was in utter shock with his eyes as wide as saucers, unable to comprehend just what was happening.

    As his air supply was being cut off, he weakly tried pulling Splinter's hands off him, gasping for breath. He couldn't believe this was happening! What made his father snap like this. His efforts became more frantic and finally he was free, but he fell to his knees, coughing harshly and holding his own throat.

    ...and Don was still recovering from earlier so he didn't see the furry foot come at him until it was too late. Splinter's aim hit true and it sent Don collasping to the floor. Stars blurred his vision and he was still gasping, this time in pain as his vision started to blacken. There was no way he could fight him in this condition.

    However...Don wasn't willing to give up the fight just yet. With his head pounding, he started backing away from Splinter, what little visibility he had left was trained on every movement his father took.

    Even with a headache, Don's senses were slowly returning and this time he did see the cane coming and dodged it. He glanced over at his lab door. He needed to get to safety. He had to regroup and figure out what happened. And maybe even get some help or at least warn someone. And there was one place he could do that. In a desperate effort to get past his father, he unsteadily got to his feet and bolted for his lab as fast as he could.

    Splinter wasn't fast enough to chase after Don, Maybe if he hadn't had the headache and tiredness that he was feeling he could. He could only watch as his son went to his lab. It was alright tho. He would have to come back out sooner or later.

    The doctor that rushed into the ER was one that quickly recognized both Lexi and Gabriel. Gabe certainly wasn't a stranger to this hospital, but it seemed he didn't recognize her. It was obvious that he still hadn't recovered his memory.


    Dr. Jordan immediately assisted Gabe with placing Lexi on a gurney, and wheeled her into one of the rooms. They needed to get her stable enough to transport to ICU.


    "What happened?" The doctor asked, taking vitals and unwrapping the injuries to get a better look.


    "She got jumped by a gang." Gabe informed, hovering close and watching the doctor's and nurses every move. She winced as she unwrapped the bandage to Lexi's wrist. "..are you sure this wasn't a suicide attempt?" She asked, knowing briefly of Lexi's severe depression. She had been hospitalized for it before. In her experience, gangs didn't make these kind of injuries. They always went for the throat or pierced something vital, or inflicted torturous wounds.


    "No, it wasn't a suicide attempt!" Gabe snapped angrily. He hadn't seen Lexi slit her own wrist, and if he had, he would've known why she did it. Not because she wanted to die. "You see those bruises on her face?! That cut on her breast?! She didn't do that to herself!"


    Dr. Jordan fell silent as she and her nurses worked with fixing the severed artery. One of the interns placed an oxygen mask over Lexi's nose and mouth since she was too weak and struggling just to breathe. "I'm sorry, that's not important now. We just need to get her stable right now. You can wait outside the room if you would like.."

    "No. I'm not leavin' her. Jus'.. fix her." He huffed, fighting back the tears. She didn't look good, and the guilt and regret were nearly suffocating.


    "I'll do everything I can, okay?" She tried to assure, but it was still too soon to tell if her efforts would be for nothing. "We need several units of AB positive.. get the transfusion started now.."

    Remey was close behind them, but silent. Until the doctor mentioned something about suicide. Remey shook his head. "Maybe she would have rather kill herself then be murdered."

    He then looked over at Gabe. "You need to get stitched up too."
