    Frustrated about how the turn of events were suddenly not turning in her favor she still had her Foot Ninja fight for as long as they were able, and knew they'd do as she said no matter what. Eyes narrow as she knows they went below; "You six follow me." She points to a small group of Ninja and heads downstairs.

    Raph was by Lexi's side in a heartbeat when she called his name. Up until that point, he wasn't sure what the hell to do...or even how to feel. Everything had been slipping out of his control and he hated it!

    "I'm right here," he told her, taking her free hand, giving it a reassuring squeeze. Unfortunately the small reprieve was just that, because then they were greeted by more ninjas when the door opened. 'Fuckin' perfect,' he thought and did his best to get Lexi to safety when Leo took on the guards.

    He honestly didn't know what to think of Remey and especially Lazarus' help -- after all he and Laz had been at odds. But this time, it looked like he was actually doing some good. But then he thought about how probably all of this was for Lexi's sake -- of course. But still, any help right now was very much appreciated.

    He gave Laz a small grunt in thanks then headed for that door with Lexi in his arms, trying to be very careful not to aggravate her wounds anymore than he had to since she was still holding Phoenix.

    Laz stood by Raph's side and fought off the ninjas that came at them. When they finally made it to the door, Laz opened it for Raph and then pushed back the few ninjas that came at them. "Lets get the fuck out of here!"

    Raph didn't need to be told twice, and even though he still didn't really like the guy, he carried Lexi outside under the man's 'orders'. 'This better not be a fuckin' trick,' he thought as he made it through the door.

    The door led outside on the street. The cold rain hitting them hard, the wind pushing against them. "I'll take Lexi to the hospital, you take the baby somewhere safe." He told Raph and hoped the idiot would follow his orders.

    Raph made it outside the door and was immediately soaked from the pouring rain. "Oh, great!" he cried out sarcastically as he tried to keep Lexi and Phoenix as dry as he could with his own body. Though it didn't do much good unfortunately.

    As much as Raph wanted to protest about Laz taking Lexi to the hospital, he had to admit to himself that it would be easier than Raph sneaking around to get Lexi as far as the front of the hospital -- forget going inside! But still, he was NOT looking forward to Laz taking HIS girl! On the bright side, however, at least he would be able to get his son to safety and not have to worry about either of them being spotted.

    So as much as he disliked the idea, he reluctantly agreed. "Fine..."

    With the help of Lawrence Leo made it to April, He looked the woman over as much as he could and she didn't look like she was in great shape. They had to get April out the door. At least Lexi and the baby made it out.

    Remey Fought off the ninja and made his way to April as well. He turned to Leo only to be stabbed by Shredder's long sword. His eyes grew wide and he dropped his weapon falling to his knees.

    Leo was able to push Shredder away but the damage was done. Remey was stabbed in the back the blade going straight through him.

    "Get out of here!" Leo called to Remey. But he couldn't even stand up, and he was growing dizzy.

    It took everything Lexi ad not to cry out when Raph scooped her up. Even the slightest of movements were excruciating, but it had to be done. They had to move. She rested her head against Raph's shoulder, and held protectively to Phoenix, trying her best to shield him from the rain once they were finally outside.


    It wasn't til Laz spoke that she realized that he was really there, and not just her disoriented mind playing tricks on her. She managed a weak smile at him, but was having a hard time understanding what they were saying. Their voices sounded submerged, and even though she was right there in Raph's arms.. they sounded so distant...

    Laz took Lexi and as soon as Raph took the baby, Laz ran off with the woman. He headed to the nearest hospital, which wasn't too far away luckily. "Don't worry, babe. I'm going to get you some help. Just hang on."

    Casey was quick to follow Leo to the basement, swinging madly at any Foot ninja that dared to get in his way. His heart nearly sank when he saw the condition April was in, and he was quick to scoop her up into his arms. "I'm here, babe.." He told her, hoping she could hear. "We're gonna get you outta here..." He was too focused on April to realize what had happened to Remey, that was until he heard Leo calling out to the man. His gaze shifted in that direction, and knew instantly that Remey wouldn't be walking out of here.


    Casey really didn't know the man, but he had come to help them. He also knew that he had a little girl, and a pregnant girlfriend. They couldn't just leave him. "You take care of him, Leo..I got April..."

    When Leo got an opening he quickly scooped up Remey, tossing him over his shoulder. "Lets go!" He yelled and ran for the door heading outside. He ran out into the ran with Casey and April right behind him.

    Once they were outside, Leo turned to see the foot ninja that had helped them close the door, trapping himself inside to fight off the ninjas still trying to get at Leo and Casey.

    "We have to get these two to the hospital!"

    Raph immediately regretted his decision the moment Lexi left his arms. He had just got her back and she was taken away from him again! He whispered a quick 'I love you' to Lexi and took the infant, situating him in one arm and trying to protect him from the elements with the other while watching Laz take off with Lexi. Hopefully they would be reunited again soon.

    Once they were out of sight, he looked down at his son and hurried to find some shelter for the both of them. Raph was feeling more than a little uneasy about the whole situation and the baby was picking up on those feeling too, silently fussing in his arms. Raph tried to comfort him as much as he could then took him underground to wait out this latest downpour.

    In her disoriented state, Lexi protested having Phoenix taken from her. Her mind was still in protective mode, not realizing that it was Raph that was taking him. But she was too weak, and a small part of her registered what was happening, but only for a fleeting moment. She was fading in and out of consciousness, her body unable to function properly with the amount of blood she had lost.


    "...Laz?" She whispered through labored breaths, trying to keep from fading again. "Where..where'd Raph go..where's Phoenix.."

    "Raph took Phoenix somewhere safe. Don't worry about that right now. We're almost at the hospital." Laz told her. Finally the hospital came into view and Laz ran inside.

    He called for help and quickly nurses were all over her, laying her on a bed and pulling in an IV. They started to ask him questions, answers that he mostly lied about. He tried staying by Lexi's side but was told he had to wait in the waiting room.

    Laz took a seat and ran his bloody fingers through his hair. He had to call the others to let them know what was going on.

    Gabriel was growing impatient. The hour mark was almost up, and they hadn't heard anything from Laz or Remey. He tried to busy himself with tending to Jake to keep his mind distracted, but there was a tension in the air that couldn't be ignored. Marley had been in tears since the moment they had left, and he knew that all this stress wasn't good for a pregnant woman.


    Marley hadn't touched her breakfast, she could only sit and stare at nothing in particular, until a bout of nausea took over her, and she retreated to the bathroom. That had been a half hour ago, and she hadn't emerged since. Gabe was concerned about her, but it seemed inappropriate for him to go intrude on her while she was in there.



    "...maybe you can go see if she's okay.." He suggested to Seren.



    Aeris was sitting in the floor,braiding Ivy's hair. Coloring books and dolls laid strewn around them. She had been playing with the two little girls, trying to keep them occupied, and herself as well. But Ivy kept asking when her daddy was coming home, and there was only so many ways she could answer the little one...

    Laz grabbed his phone and dialed Aeris' number. He flipped through some paper work he was handed as he waited for her to pick up.

He felt bad for the Foot ninja that had helped them, but there was nothing they could do to help him. He just hoped the guy would find a way out... but knew that was impossible.

    Aeris: Aeris' heart nearly skipped a beat when her phone finally rang. She was hoping and praying that it was Laz, and that he was alright. Much to her relief, it was Laz' number on her ID. She quickly answered, the relief evident in her tone. "Laz.. thank God. Is everything okay?"

    Laz: "Yes and no>​" Laz answered. "I'm fine. Lexi is hurt real bad, I'm at the hospital with her right now. Raph and the baby made it out. But I had to leave the others at the..." Then he watched as some brought Remey in from outside. He watched as they put him on a bed and rolled him to the back. "Scratch that. Remey is also at the hospital."

    Aeris frowned deeply when he told her that Lexi was badly injured... and Remey. Her gaze shifted in the direction of the bathroom, wondering how she was going to break that to Marley. "Oh no. How bad is he?" She asked, hoping it was just minor injuries. "Can you put him on the phone? Marley has been crying her eyes out ever since you guys left..."

    "I don't know. He didn't look to good. Tell her that he's out the tower and in good hands. I'm sure that he'll be fine." But he couldn't tell, all he saw was Remey and a lot of blood, there was no way way he made it to the hospital himself. Someone brought him. And that gave him hope that everyone else got out too.

    "I'll keep you guys updated."

    Well, that would certainly make Aeris' job a little harder. "What if I tell her that, and something happens? Maybe I should bring her to the hospital so she can be with him.. just in case something happens..." She suggested.


    Just then, Marley finally emerged from the bathroom, looking completely drained. She overheard some of what Aeris had said, and her heart sank. She could only be talking about one person. "Remey?" She asked, feeling completely numb. Her weight was suddenly too much to support and she collapsed. It was happening again... "Mar!" Aeris called out, and rushed to her side. "What hospital are you at?" She asked Laz...

    Laz hated that they would come out in the rain, but it sounded like Mar was having a hard time dealing with everything, He should have never let Remey come with him. He quickly told Aeris where he was.

    "You guys be careful coming here. The rain is pretty bad." But he was sure they already knew that.
